(EAW intro plays.)
(A highlight reel of last week’s episode of Voltage begins to play.)
(RECAP: The Fighting Spirit card started to take shape, as Jack Ripley kicked off Voltage. He explained his absence from the ring and how happy he was to be back in action, and of course, he brought up his history with Charlie Marr. The rivalry between these two Elitists runs deep, and Jack announced to everyone that at Fighting Spirit, he would be taking on Charlie Marr for one final time in an Unsanctioned Match! To end the night, Grand Rampage winner, Rex McAllister, would come out and join a celebration hosted by his biggest fan, Persephone. He would talk about what it meant to win the match this year, and basically said it was a no brainer that he would be looking to take the EAW Championship come Pain for Pride. Andrea Valentine would take note of this, knowing there’s a damn good chance she will end up being Rex’s opponent for that match, but before anything could be said between the two of them, Dynasty’s own Diamond Cage would show up. He goes right into the ring and challenges one of his greatest rivals ever in Rex for a match at Fighting Spirit. It’s set to be a 30-Minute Hardcore Ironman Match!)
(RECAP CONTINUES: The match announcements weren’t limited to just Fighting Spirit! In addition to Rex stepping up and challenging whoever holds the EAW Championship at Pain for Pride, Captain Charisma made his own blockbuster announcement. He admitted he is sick of the back and forth between Malcolm Jones and Charlie Marr, and said that they need to settle their differences once and for all. At Pain for Pride, Charlie and Malcolm would finally get their one-on-one match, and it would be contested in the fourth installment of… BARBED WIRE MASSACRE!!!)
(RECAP CONTINUES: As always, the in-ring action on Voltage delivered as well. Talented newcomer, SEBAS, would pick up his first win as an official member of Voltage by defeating Colt Valentine [no relation to Andrea, obvi]. The living legend himself, The Woogieman, would absolutely dismantle the phony serial killer, Kristopher Killbourne. The Grand Athletes and The Unique Ones continued their rivalry with one another by facing off in singles action. Limmy Monaghan would defeat Komatsu Ogawa by rolling him up and grabbing a handful of tights. Later on, Shawn Sturgis would defeat Mark Macias in a similar fashion!)
(RECAP CONTINUES: Voltage also saw two grudge matches take place. After weeks of torture, Colby Sol finally got a chance to get his hands on Jesse Barlow inside the ring. The match was incredible, with Colby displaying the heart and soul of a future champion. He would give Jesse everything he had and more, but in the end, the numbers advantage would get the better of him. Hannah would provide a distraction, which allowed Jesse to slip on a pair of brass knuckles and knock Colby out! Colby would taste defeat once again, but this loss would cost him his freedom. The other grudge match would see Gavin McArdle and Maxwell finally get a chance to settle their differences. It would be a hard fought match between the two bright Voltage lights, but in the end, it would be Gavin who would get his hand raised, after putting away Maxwell.) (RECAP CONTINUES: The main event of the night featured Voltage’s Sarah Price going up against Showdown’s Alexis Chambers for the right to face the EAW Specialists Champion, Darcy May Morgan, for the belt at the Dynasty free-per-view, Gateway to Glory. There would be nothing these two women wouldn’t throw at each other in order to win. Sarah would stay within the rules, but Alexis would rely on her newfound cunning nature, and some help from Jake Smith! Despite the cheating from the Showdown duo, the talent inside the ring could not be denied. Anyone with half a brain would agree that both Sarah and Alexis are future champions, and unfortunately the match of the week candidate between the two would not have a clean finish. Due to an altercation earlier in the evening, Dr. Bethany Blue would hit the ring and take out Sarah, thus disqualifying Alexis and costing her a chance at the Specialists Championship! Alexis and Bethany would go at one another, with Jake doing everything he could to break it up, but unfortunately the PURE Champion would end up eating Dr. Blue’s amazing superkick, TJD!)
(The highlight video fades out and cuts to the inside of the empty EAW Performance Center and right down to the broadcast booth where James Peters, Rich Russillo, and Persephone Tsitsipas are standing by. Persephone isn’t even looking into the camera. She is texting away on her phone and blowing bubbles with her bright pink bubblegum. Rich and James shake their heads at one another, and the camera catches a great shot of their custom T-shirts for tonight! Both are wearing PG Patrol shirts to support Sarah Price in her quest to become the Specialists Champion, despite the fact neither man would ever follow PG guidelines unless forced too.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another episode of Sunday Night Voltage! We are officially on the road to Pain for Pride, and not only do we have an exciting Pain for Pride match already announced, but last week the first two matches for Fighting Spirit were also announced!
Rich Russillo: After having their rivalry renewed in the Grand Rampage match, Rex McAllister and Cage will go one on one in a 30-Minute Hardcore Ironman Match.
Persephone: :mjlit: Did someone say Rex McAllister? As in Grand Rexpage winner Rex McAllister? As in HALL OF FAMER REX MCALLISTER?! DID YOU GUYS SEE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT ON FRIDAY?! I LITERALLY COULD NOT STOP WATCHING THE VIDEO! IT WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VIDEO I HAVE EVER SEEN AND REX IS THE MOST DESERVING MAN OF THIS HONOR LIKE LITERALLY EVER!
James Peters: Calm down, Persephone.
Rich Russillo: Leave her be, James! She’s just excited! All of us here on Voltage send our congratulations to Rex McAllister, who was announced as the first inductee for the EAW Hall of Fame class for 2020.
Persephone: I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: We know…
Rich Russillo: Something else that’s exciting, to me at least, is the fact that Jack Ripley and Charlie Marr are going to do battle one more time. At Fighting Spirit, they will settle the score with one another once and for all and go to war in an Unsanctioned Match. I can’t wait to see how that plays out.
James Peters: No doubt there will be more matches for Fighting Spirit announced, not to mention we have a hell of a line-up for you tonight.
Persephone: No Rex McAllister match. No Persephone Tsitsipas interest.
Rich Russillo: We have a Showcase of Champions Match tonight as our main event. Ms. Extreme will take on Terry Chambers. Consuela Rose Ava’s opponent for Fighting Spirit will be determined with Colby Sol taking on Gavin McArdle in a number one contendership match. Plus, Sarah Price will take on Dr. Bethany Blue, and you know Sarah is frustrated with Dr. Blue after what happened last week.
James Peters: We got a lot more happening too, so stick around! When we come back from break, EAW World Champion, Andrea Valentine, will be in the ring to talk about what lies ahead for her at Fighting Spirit, and what being in the main event of Pain for Pride would mean to her.
(Rich and James smile into the camera, while Persephone throws up the peace sign. Voltage fades into a promotional ad for Gateway to Glory.)
(A promotional ad for Gateway to Glory airs! Catch the last Dynasty exclusive free-per-view of the season as it airs from the

See Drizzy and Vizzy take on Fire and Ice with the Unified Tag Team Championships on the line. Those two matches, plus more, as the men and women of Dynasty look to make a lasting impression on one another as they head to Pain for Pride!)
(Voltage fades back in and cuts to Bella Braxton, who is standing in the center of the ring. She flashes a bright smile to the camera.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome to the ring the EAW World Champion… ANDREA VALENTINE!!!
(“Roll With Me” by Charli XCX begins to blast throughout the empty EAW PC. The camera focuses on the stage and after a moment, the champion herself walks out. Andrea is dressed in a pair of fitted skinny jeans, a Beating Hearts of Voltage t-shirt that has been modified and cropped, and expensive Louboutin heels. She smiles brightly, holding up her belt, and begins to make her way down to the ring.)
James Peters: We’re back, and as promised, the EAW World Champion is about to join us. This is about to be an interesting stretch of time for Andrea Valentine. She knows what’s waiting for her at Pain for Pride should she make it there, but the question on everyone’s mind is who’s going to be the last obstacle for her to try and conquer?
Rich Russillo: That’s a great question, and honestly I have no idea, James. We were told earlier today that Andrea Valentine will defend the EAW World Championship at Fighting Spirit. But who her challenger will be seems to be a bit of a mystery. I’m not sure if Andrea herself knows at this point, but maybe tonight we’ll find out.
Persephone: Honestly, it doesn’t even matter who the fuck challenges the bitch at Fighting Spirit. We all know that come Pain for Pride, Sexy Rexy is walking out of Philadelphia with that belt, regardless of who he has to go through. It’s his time to shine, alright? Not this bitch’s, and not whatever other weirdo this company can throw a bone too.
(Andrea has gotten into the ring and Bella has given her the microphone. As the ring announcer takes her leave, Andrea’s theme music fades out. The flawless queen of a champion stands there alone, and there is no mistaking the look of confidence on her face. She looks every bit the champion that she is, and there is no denying that Andrea Valentine will forever be recognized as one of the absolute best in EAW history.)
Andrea Valentine: Grand Rampage is done, in the books, and I’m not about to really waste my time dwelling on it. Malcolm Jones and Charlie Marr deserve one another at this point, and I let it be known to them how I felt about their constant back and forth drama that seemed to center around MY EAW World Championship. I never once denied the fact that I had a little help in getting it, but Malcolm just couldn’t let it go. He just wanted to harp and harp on the fact, and despite having me on the brink of defeat a few times, he wasn’t able to put me away. Who really knows what would have happened if Charlie’s ugly self hadn’t gotten involved, but hey! That’s not really my issue to deal with. I’m still the EAW World Champion and last week, Rex McAllister did what we all knew he was going to do, and that was insert himself into the Voltage main event for Pain for Pride. We all know he is going to be challenging for the EAW World Champion, but the question that seems to be on everyone’s minds at the moment is who will be the champion come Pain for Pride?
Andrea Valentine: It goes without saying that I’ve come this far with this belt, and I’m not about to let whoever steps up to the plate at Fighting Spirit derail me from main eventing my first ever Pain for Pride as a world champion. There is no reason for me to believe that I can’t get through whatever challenge awaits me at Fighting Spirit, and then get to Pain for Pride to continue causing Rex that world championship heartbreak. With all due respect to Rex, because trust me, I have nothing but respect for Rex and the way he handles himself, and it goes without saying that Raven is one of my best friends, but I know he’s basically guaranteed victory this year. He’s said it from the very beginning that he would be back in the Pain for Pride main event and he would be the champion. I’m not going to say that I quite pictured myself as the person standing between him and his dream, but here we are. I’m not going to let my world championship reign end at Fighting Spirit or Pain for Pride, for that matter. I know that I have to take these matches one step at a time, and not look too far ahead. Does it make me a little nervous knowing what’s on the line come Fighting Spirit?
(Andrea nods her head, not afraid to show a little bit of vulnerability. This is her first ever world championship reign and she has a chance to carry the most prestigious title in EAW history into the biggest show of the year. It’s a lot of pressure for anyone, especially for someone who’s never been in this kind of position before.)
Andrea Valentine: I will never lie to the EAW Universe. I am nervous. I would be worried if I wasn’t, because that would mean I’m getting overconfident or worse, complacent. To overlook anything right now would be a big mistake, and with me being so close to achieving what every wrestler sets out to do, but only a few actually do, there is no room for error. That’s why I’m going to be at my absolute best come Fighting Spirit and whatever Elitist wants to step up and challenge me for the EAW World Championship, is going to have one hell of a fight on their hands.
(“Monster” by Kanye West begins to blast across to the PA system, and Andrea can’t help but react in a little bit of shock.)
James Peters: Wait… what?! What the fuck is Kassidy Heart doing out here?
Rich Russillo: That’s Dynasty’s National Elite Champion, who is POTENTIALLY booked against Sienna Jade at Pain for Pride :damn:!!! Is she coming out here to challenge Andrea for Fighting Spirit?!
(Kassidy steps onto the stage and she is smiling from ear to ear, despite everything that’s been going on in her professional life at the moment. She is wearing a pair of slim fitting, cream coloured lace trousers and a matching cream coloured lace crop top that laces together in the back. Gold wedge sandals are on her feet, and a delicate gold choker with a little o-ring in the middle circles her neck. Her hair is slicked back into a sleek ponytail and not only does she have a microphone with her, she also has her championship with her. Kassidy makes her way to the ring and smiles sweetly at Andrea, and motions for her music to cut.)
Kassidy Heart: Before you start shaking in your knockoff Louboutins and questioning your own sense of self worth, let me reassure you that I am not here to challenge you at Fighting Spirit. While becoming a world champion again is in my future, it’s not in my immediate future. But let me tell you something Andrea, I know who’s future it is in.
Persephone: So like… does this mean…
James Peters: Surely not.
Rich Russillo: :lupe:
(Kassidy turns her back to Andrea and looks directly towards the stage.)
Kassidy Heart: You see, the greatest man to ever walk this planet, and the man I proudly refer to as my King, is a man of the people. He knows the matches everyone wants to see and he knows that his name will always come up as the dream opponent for whoever else is around. So Andrea, please allow me to introduce to you, the man who will be facing you at Fighting Spirit… the greatest wrestler to ever live! My flawless, perfect King… Mr. DEDEDE!!!!
James Peters: Oh dear Gawd.
Rich Russillo: Are we getting champion versus champion?!
(“Let It Go” by A$AP Ferg begins to play and Answers World Champion strolls onto the stage wearing a nice pair of black Prada dress pants, a black button down shirt, and black Gucci dress shoes. Mr. DEDEDE has the Answers World Championship across his shoulder and he makes his way down to the ring. Andrea looks very unimpressed with this and rolls her eyes as Kassidy sits down on the ropes for DEDEDE. DEDEDE hooks his finger in the ring on Kassidy’s choker and pulls her up, right up against him, and he tilts his head down to kiss her. Kassidy practically melts against her husband, and Andrea can’t help herself.)
Andrea Valentine: You can literally get a room.
(Mr. DEDEDE and Kassidy finally pull apart and DEDEDE exchanges his belt with Kassidy for the microphone. DEDEDE looks at Andrea and he can’t help but shake his head.)
Mr. DEDEDE: I’m not going to address what happened last night on Showdown, because today is a brand new day, and unlucky for you, Andrea, I have decided to turn my attention towards you. You see, certain people like to accuse me of not really giving a shit about this company’s bottomline and doing what’s best for it, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m all about bringing in revenue and making sure we have the best possible matches on our cards, and let me tell you something. Rex McAllister versus Andrea Valentine is a fucking snoozefest. But Rex McAllister versus ME? Now that’s something to get excited over. Two Hall of Famers beating the hell out of each other on our sports biggest stage and all for the right to be called the EAW World Champion. You see, since becoming the People’s Champion, I’m not content with just having the Answers World Championship. I want to have all the world championships. It’s something that my wife actually spoke about earlier this week when she listed off her bucket list because that absolute moron Drake King decided to question her ambition and her drive simply because she’s currently holding a championship Drake himself doesn’t feel the need to challenge for.
That’s all good.
To each his own, and her bucket list got me thinking about my own ambition. I was born to be a champion and limiting myself to just one title at any given time seems like I’m doing a disservice to not just myself, but to every single member of the EAW Universe. I know that every man, woman, and child has looked at me as a guiding light through this pandemic, and I owe it to each and every single one of them to make sure that I save Voltage from another lackluster match that no one wants to see. There will be no Rex McAllister and Andrea Valentine match at Pain for Pride, and you can all thank Gawd for that. At Fighting Spirit, I will valiantly step into the ring and put an end to this sham of a championship reign. You’ve been lucky up until this point. Lucky that Terry Chambers continues to be the waste of roster space that he is and beat himself. You’ve been used in the dick swinging contest between Charlie Marr and Malcolm Jones for the last couple of months, and not in the way you’re used too. You were able to get by Charlie, and Malcolm continues to let his temper get the better of him and assume he’s invincible, which is exactly why he never bothered to think Charlie would live by the code, do unto others. It’s sad and it’s pathetic, but that’s pretty much summed up Voltage this season.
Kassidy Heart (Off Mic): Yikes.
Andrea Valentine: Well considering you spent some time trying to run this show, you can place some of the blame for Voltage supposedly ‘sucking’ on your own shoulders. Besides, it was your shitty niece that ran the brand into the ground anyway. At least she’s Showdown’s problem now, and if you want to TRY and make yourself my problem, then you are welcome to do so. I’m not afraid of you and I’m really not about to back down and let you, of all people, try and take the EAW World Championship away from me. I have worked my ass off and regardless of what’s gone down in my matches, I am more than deserving of holding this belt.
Mr. DEDEDE: Your bravado is amusing and your words are brave, but actions speak louder than words, and in order to give the people the main event they deserve, a match featuring the double champion, The Gawd, defending the EAW World Championship, against the newly minted Hall of Famer Rex McAllister, I’m going to have to crush your hopes and your dreams at Fighting Spirit and send you right on down to the 24/7 Battle Royal. That’s where you really belong, Andrea, and maybe if you’re able to win that match and not choke like you did in Grand Rampage last year, you can use your contract to climb your way back up or go for a title that’s more fitting for you such as the Universal Women’s Championship.
Kassidy Heart (Off Mic): More like the Specialists Championship to be honest.
Andrea Valentine: Says the person who would never step up and challenge for the Specialists Championship while we were on Empire…
Mr. DEDEDE: The point is, I’m here to save Voltage from what will surely be a very boring and lackluster main event. I never in a million years thought I would ever agree with Charlie Marr, but absolutely no one wants to see Rex versus Andrea. It lacks intrigue. It lacks depth. It’s literally two fucking vanilla robots going hold for hold in the middle of the ring without any real passion. We’re in the middle of a global crisis, and the people deserve better. The world deserves to have Mr. DEDEDE reign as the EAW World Champion and the Answers World Champion, and after Pain for Pride, they deserve to see him become the EAW World Heavyweight Champion as well. I’ll see you at Fighting Spirit, Andrea.
(Mr. DEDEDE pats Andrea on the head like she’s a dog and drops the microphone. “Let It Go” begins to play once again. He exits the ring and steps on the bottom rope for Kassidy. She takes his hand and they drop to the ground, and both of them back up the ramp with their eyes locked on Andrea. Andrea gives Mr. DEDEDE a defiant look and holds the EAW World Championship up in the air. DEDEDE stares her down, while Kassidy clings to his side, looking up at him with nothing but pure lust in her eyes.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for SmartWater with antioxidants featuring Terry Chambers. He’s been losing a lot of weight recently, and SmartWater keeps him fueled during workouts!)
(Voltage returns from break and the camera cuts to Bella in the middle of the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL!!!
(‘Gimme The Prize’ by Queen plays up as Mark Macias makes his way out to the stage with Limmy Monaghan following right behind him. Both have a smirk on their faces as Mark takes a spin around and points around before making his way down to the ring with a cocky strut in his step as Limmy follows along.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… accompanied by LIMMY MONAGAN!!! From Hollywood, California… weighing in at 221 pounds… DOUBLE M… MARK MACIAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Here comes Mark Macias out to the ring tonight! I’m sure tonight he’s making sure he avenges his loss against Shawn Sturgis which he claims to be some sort of screwjob, hell I think he blamed the whole thing on the Refs, but no matter, because either way they’re making sure they don’t stumble upon their own tracks and possibly gain a win tonight!
James Peters: I wouldn’t take it away from him, despite the losses he’s been occuring he’s shown one way or another that he’s one heck of a competitor, that’s been shown at Grand Rampage and I think he’s going to bring that same intensity that he’s always brought and with that newfound motivation crank it up to 1,000!
Persephone: Oh please, at this point I’d rather watch his movies than watch a match from him, and both are a tall task. Believe me he should get another job, something he knows how to do like take out the trash on Tuesdays, yeah that would be great.
(Both Mark Macias and Limmy Monaghan stop at the bottom of the ramp as they look at one another with a nod as Mark walks ahead of him and makes his way up the steel steps and into the ring. He steps on the middle rope and spreads his arms out with a cocky look on his face as he slowly takes his sunglasses off and throws them to the side as he heads to his corner and leans against it as ‘Gimme The Prize’ fades out. ‘If Ya Smell’ by Adam Massacre plays up as Rich Russillo and James Peters get out of their seats and start loudly cheering as Persephone is sitting there in confusion and annoyance as The Woogieman makes his way out to the stage. He begins to jump around the center of the stage getting ready as he then makes his way out to the ring with the swagger that he always possesses as he does so.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Jacksonville, Florida… weighing in at 260 pounds… HE IS… THE WOOGIEMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: :blessed: :goat~1: There are no words needed to be said about the absolute goat, the flagbearer of Voltage, the heart and soul that holds this place up! He’s so down to earth and so stern about what he says and cuts right to the point, that he’s going to come in here and win this match!
James Peters: :blessed: :goat~1: I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens! Cause he’s such a goat I’m sure Mark Macias is just going to drop dead and let Woogie take the pin, cause that’s how much greatness he oozes out. You know the great saying by Big Ben Franklin, “Another day, another Woogieman match to be blessed by!”
Persephone: You’ve got to be kidding me, this just solidifies the fact both of you are fucking virgins.
(The Woogieman makes his way up the steel steps as he quickly climbs up the to the top turnbuckle and raises his arm up as he closes his eyes and looks around before jumping down and making his way to the opposite turnbuckle and doing the same before finally making his way to his corner and getting prepared as ‘If Ya Smell’ fades out and the Ref signals for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as this match is officially underway now! AND MARK MACIAS NOT WASTING ANY TIME RUNNING FORWARD AND KICKING WOOGIE RIGHT IN THE GUT! Mark is not playing by any respect code around here as he grabs Woogie and quickly irish whips him into the corner. He runs forward, MARK WITH A CLOTHESLINE- BUT WOOGIE MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY! Mark running forward at Woogie, BUT WOOGIE THROWS MARK OUT OF THE RING!
James Peters: Mark quickly grabs the apron as he pulls himself up but I don’t think he sees what’s going to happen right here as Woogie quickly rebounds off the ropes and runs towards Mark, WOOGIE TAKES MARK DOWN WITH A BIG TOPE CON HILO! Woogie is on absolute fire as he grabs Mark and brings him up to his feet and rolls him into the ring. Mark crawling himself up to his feet but Woogie isn’t going to wait for him as he brings him up himself, GERMAN SUPLEX RIGHT TO MARK SENDING HIM BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Persephone: Mark quickly grabs the ropes to keep himself upright as Woogie grabs him by the arms and sends him to the ropes with a irish whip, but nope apparently Mark grabs a hold of the ropes like the pussy he is. Woogie just like me, is confused as fuck as he runs forward and goes to Mark hoping to pull the pussy out of the den, but nope, Mark apparently is able to slam a knee right into Woogie’s face, honestly can this just be the end of the match?
Rich Russillo: Not just yet my kween. Woogie stumbles back as Mark quickly runs at him, MARK TAKES WOOGIE DOWN WITH A BIG BOOT! Woogie sits up as Mark runs to the ropes, MARK STOMPS ON THE FACE OF WOOGIE- WAIT! WOOGIE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AS HE QUICKLY GRABS MARK! HE GOES FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX- BUT MARK MANAGES TO REVERSE OUT AND SLIDE OUT AS HE GRABS WOOGIE AND TURNS HIM AROUND! MARK WITH A KICK RIGHT TO THE CHEST SENDING WOOGIE DOWN TO A KNEE!
James Peters: AND MARK BEGINNING TO UNLOAD ON WOOGIE WITH THE MARK KICKS AS CLEARLY WOOGIE IS DEFENSELESS! MARK SLIDES BACK AND GOES FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! THE FINISHING BLOW- BUT WOOGIE MANAGES TO DUCK UNDER AS HE GRABS MARK AND TURNS HIM AROUND! SPEAR! MARK TAKEN DOWN TO THE GROUND AS WOOGIE GOES FOR THE PIN NOW!
Persephone: GODDAMMIT! I mean, Mark manages to kick out, woo. Woogie bringing Mark up once more as he sends him into the corner. Mark for some reason looks like a drunk as he bounces out of the corner and Woogieman is able to grab him, and go for a Samoan Drop as Mark does the most over dramatic slam down to the ground I’ve ever seen.
Rich Russillo: Mark rolling away once more trying to escape the situation as Woogie grabs him and brings him up to his feet. Mark quickly trying to land some forearm strikes but obviously Woogieman is not having it as he pulls him forward and sends a knee right to his chest! Mark falls down to a knee as Woogieman brings him up again, AND SENDS ANOTHER KNEE RIGHT TO HIS GUT! BUT MARK IS FIRING BACK AS HE CONNECTS WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! WOOGIE RUNNING AT MARK BUT MARK QUICKLY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS WOOGIE FALLS INTO THE CORNER, MARK WITH A CLOTHESLINE RIGHT TO THE HEAD OF WOOGIE SENDING HIM DOWN TO THE GROUND! AWESOME CLOTHESLINE CONNECTS!
James Peters: Woogie stumbles out of the corner as Mark turns him around and quickly goes for a forearm! BUT WOOGIE MANAGES TO BLOCK IT AS HE SENDS A KICK RIGHT TO THE GUT OF MARK FORCING HIM BACK! MARK COMES FORWARD, BUT WOOGIE TAKING MARK DOWN WITH A SPINEBUSTER! OH I THINK I KNOW WHAT’S ABOUT TO GO ON HERE! WOOGIE IS PEELING OFF THAT ELBOW PAD OF HIS AS HE QUICKLY RUNS TO THE ROPES AND BACK WITH INTENSITY!
Persephone: I’ve never seen such a desperate attempt at an advantage. Anyways Woogie tries to go for that really stupid elbow that he goes for, The People’s Elbow or whatever, but like any other logical person Mark manages to move out of the way. Woogie looks like a deer in the headlights, wait what’s new! But it appears Mark is not going to take stupid as any answer on the quiz although he is one himself.
Rich Russillo: MARK QUICKLY KICKING WOOGIE IN THE GUT STOPPING HIM RIGHT IN HIS TRACKS AS HE RUNS AT HIM! MARK CONNECTS WITH A VICIOUS KNEE RIGHT TO THE HEAD OF WOOGIE AS HE TRANSITIONS IT INTO, A NECKBREAKER! END SCENE CONNECTS AS WOOGIE IS TAKEN DOWN TO THE MAT BY THE PERSISTENCE OF MARK MACIAS! BELIEVE IT OR NOT EAW UNIVERSE THIS MIGHT SPELL THE END OF THE MATCH RIGHT HERE!
James Peters: Woogie stumbling up to his feet now as clearly the persistence of the GOAT is telling him not to give up either but it’s clear one way or another we just have to admit he’s falling right into a trap! Woogie grabbing onto the ropes for leverage with his back turned to Mark, Mark stumbling right towards him as he turns him around! THE CREDITS ROLL! FULL NELSON FACEBUSTER SLAMS WOOGIEMAN RIGHT DOWN TO THE GROUND AS MARK MACIAS LEAPS FORWARD! LIMMY MONAGHAN AT RINGSIDE JUST BOUNCED UP AS IT’S CLEAR THEY BOTH KNOW THAT MARK IS GOING TO COME OUT ON TOP! THE REF GOES FOR THE COUNT RIGHT HERE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Gimme The Prize’ plays up as Mark Macias sits up with a smirk as Limmy Monaghan rolls into the ring and quickly pulls him up as both of them look eccentric as Limmy raises Mark’s hand in victory. Limmy is about to go to the top rope and celebrate even more but Mark stops him and whispers in his ear before both of The Grand Athletes turn their attention to Woogieman.)
Persephone: Ouch they’re attacking him after the match, honestly I don’t mind but haven’t you guys had enough?
Rich Russillo: BUT IT ISN’T ENOUGH FOR THEM AS MARK LIFTS WOOGIEMAN UP OFF THE GROUND! THE OSCAR AWARD CONNECTS AS WOOGIEMAN IS TAKEN RIGHT BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND AGAIN!
(The Grand Athletes go to the end of the ring and ask for a mic. They both head to the center of the ring and begin to speak.)
Mark Macias: Now that we’ve definitely got your attention I think me and Limmy have got a few things we’ve got to get off our chest. And that’s the fact that we’re growing sick and tired of being pushed, and jerked around in this place and taken as the little man, it’s stayed like that for how much longer now? An eternity?! We want to be looked at and taken seriously just as every other tag team in here, hell I could even say better if you ask me and my input. I might be from Hollywood and believe me Limmy might seem like a bumbling idiot but we need to be treated as one of if not the future, next EAW Unified Tag Team Championships.
Limmy Monaghan: Hey mate gotta correct you when you say that cause I ain’t no idiot. BUT YEAH WHAT HE SAID! ME AND MARK HERE ARE FUTURE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS AND WE’RE GOING TO KICK THE ARSES OF ANY BLOKES THAT STAND IN OUR WAY!
Mark Macias: Yup, and I will say this. One way or another when Fighting Spirit comes around very soon, we’re going to make sure that we’re going to get on the card, and that we’re going to stamp our ticket to Pain For Pride 13 one way or another.
(‘I Want It All’ by Queen plays up as The Grand Athletes drop their mics and roll out of the ring. They raise their hands in victory once more before heading away and into the backstage area as Voltage fades out to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for HelloFresh featuring Kassidy Heart and Mr. DEDEDE. Kassidy prepares a delicious meal of lobster ravioli and shrimp for her husband, while making sure to talk about fresh all the ingredients are and how easy HelloFresh makes cooking!)
(Voltage returns and cuts to Bella.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL!
( “’Slide’ by Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean, Migos blasts through the speakers, Maxwell walks out on to the stage with a big smile on his face as he lowers his sunglasses down and gives that perfect smile for the camera before making his way down the ramp to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From the sin city capital of the world, Las Vegas, Nevada weighing in at 250 pounds… “Prince Wealthy”, MAXXXXXXXWEEEELLLLLLLLLLLL!!
James Peters: Last week Maxwell found himself at the losing end of the stick by Gavin McArdle, taking a devastating gutwrench powerbomb. We can tell after the match that he wasn’t very happy, we can see he’s a different man with a whole lot of determination.
Rich Russillo: YES SIR! Maxwell has been off to a rough start and he is not about to let this match be the same outcome. This man is on a mission, I surely hope SEBAS is ready for what is to come.
(‘La Guayaba’ by Riccie Oriach cuts in as ‘Slide’ by Calvin Harris fades out. SEBAS runs out on to the stage pumping himself up..then comes running down the ramp with a slide into the ring, and hops to the second rope and points out to the empty arena.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! Weighing in at 205 pounds from his home country Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic…….SSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEBBAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!
Rich Russillo: SEBAS had a strong impressive victory over Colt Valentine last week picking up his second win here in the EAW. I really like this guy, he’s really showed up and has made a pretty damn good name for himself, a victory here tonight will definitely showcase what’s to come from this young talent.
Persephone: Don’t get ahead of yourself Rich, he has a lot to prove. Maxwell is a pretty intimidating man for his size, this is going to be nothing but a squash match. So let’s get on with the match already and get it over with.
James Peters: Well from a stats point of view, SEBAS is still considered undefeated, as Maxwell is well, hasn’t won a match since God knows when. Many would see this match going in the favor of the big guy, but after the last two matches my money is clearing on SEBAS.
Rich Russillo: James, did this little fuck convince you to put your money on him?
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: OH! STRAIGHT OUT OF THE GATE MAXWELL WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE GUT OF SEBAS! HARD CHOP ACROSS THE CHEST OF SEBAS, THEN ANOTHER YOU CAN HEAR THESE CHOPS THROUGHOUT THE ARENA. MAXWELL GOES FOR ANOTHER AND BLOCKED BY SEBAS AND DELIVERS ONE BACK. MAXWELL WITH ANOTHER, SEBAS MATCHES, MAXWELL WITH ANOTHER AND ANOTHER. SEBAS STUMBLES BACK HOLDING HIS CHEST. As we can see Maxwell does however hold a height and weight advantage over SEBAS, but from what I’ve seen of this young man SEBAS is out to prove that his injury will not hold him back from success and a few hyenas in the process. HARD AXEHANDLE ACROSS THE BACK OF SEBAS. MAXWELL WHIPS HIM IN TO THE CORNER AND BRINGS IN A NICE LARIAT RIGHT ACROSS THE THROAT SENDING SEBAS TO THE CANVAS.
Persephone: Maxwell has a nice physique but nothing compared to my Sexy Rexy. But he does have a lot to prove here tonight after his loss against Gavin McArdle last week. He may could have been in that #1 contenders match for the Interwire Championship coming up later tonight.
Rich Russillo: Maxwell drags SEBAS to his feet and sends him in to the ropes, Maxwell with a LEAPFROG..OFF THE ROPES AGAIN…MAXWELL WITH A CLOTHESLINE BUT NO SEBAS DUCKS…OFF THE ROPES…SEBAS WITH A CLOTHESLINE OF HIS OWN AND MISSES HIS MARK, MAXWELL DUCKS GRABS THE WAIST FROM BEHIND. LOOKS LIKE HE’S TRYING TO SET UP A GERMAN SUPLEX BUT SEBAS WITH A BACK RIGHT ELBOW, MISSES GOES FOR A LEFT ELBOW AND CATCHES MAXWELL RIGHT UNDER THE CHIN.
(Maxwell checks his chin as SEABAS drops to one knee. Maxwell throws his arms out in a dramatic fashion with a shit eating grin.)
James Peters: SEBAS RUNS THE ROPES BUT IS MET WITH A FIERCE CLOTHESLINE, SEBAS POPS BACK AND HIS MET WITH ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE. Maxwell grabs SEBAS INTO POSITION FOR A PUMPHANDLE SLAM…NO SEBAS SLIPS OVERTOP AND DOWN THE BACK OF MAXWELL…GOES FOR THE SCHOOLBOY ROLL UP AND MAXWELL KEEPS THE MOMENTUM AND ROLLS THROUGH…SEBAS UP WITH A QUICK STANDING DROPKICK SENDING MAXWELL OUT THE GROUND. SEBAS RUNS THE ROPES AND DIVES OVER THE TOP AND HITS THE MARK WITH A TOPE CON GIRO.
Persephone: Both men taking time to get to their feet, SEBAS is first to make it up. Rolls himself into the ring followed by Maxwell..OHHH BUT IS MET WITH BY A HANDFUL OF STOMPS BY SEBAS. SEBAS OFF THE ROPES WITH A DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF MAXWELL’S RIGHT CALF. BRINGS THE BIG GUY DOWN TO ONE KNEE. SEBAS BACK OFF THE SAME ROPE AND A STRIKING KNEE TO THE BACK OF MAXWELL..SEBAS FALLS DOWN FOR A LAZY PIN.
ONE.. James Peters: MAXWELL GETS THE SHOULDER UP AS BOTH MEN GET TO THEIR FEET RATHER QUICKLY, SEBAS OFF THE ROPES…MAXWELL’S THERE TO MEET HIM SENDING HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE APRON. MAXWELL GRABS HIM FROM OVER THE ROPE FOR A SUPLEX IN…DAM!!! BRINGS SEBAS DOWN HARD TO THE CANVAS. MAXWELL WITH THE SINGLE LEG HOOKED!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT BY SEBAS. Maxwell isn’t too happy over that slow two count. He’s going to need to dig a little deeper into his bag of moves if he wants to put SEBAS away.
(Ref: signaling only half a two.)
Persephone: Well duh he’s going to have to try harder then that, you can’t expect to win with a simple suplex. Agh..Would this night get over with already.
James Peters: MAXWELL ROLLS SEBAS OVER AND PULLS HIM TO HIS FEET, MAXWELL SENDS SEBAS IN TO THE ROPES MAXWELL WITH A FOREARM, SEBAS DUCKS UNDER, SEBAS OFF THE ROPES, MAXWELL THERE WAITING FOR A BIG BOOT, BUT NO SEBAS BASEBALL SLIDES UNDER. SEBAS CHARGES MAXWELL WITH A DIVING SPEAR CATCHES HIM OFF GUARD SENDS HIM IN TO THE CORNER.
Rich Russillo: SEBAS needs to capitalize now if he wants to gain the advantage in this match.
Persephone: MAXWELL STUMBLES OUT OF THE CORNER AND SEBAS THERE TO MEET HIM WITH A FRONT HEADLOCK RUNS THE CORNER AND BAM TAKING MAXWELL HEAD FIRST TO THE MAT WITH A TORNADO DDT. (SEBAS going straight to the hand.) OMG! IS HE TRYING TO HOLD HIS HAND.
Rich Russillo: LOOK HOW HE’S GOT THOSE FINGERS BENT, MAXWELL IS IN PAIN YOU CAN SEE IT IN HIS EYES. SEBAS PULLS MAXWELL’S ARM OVER HEAD AND LOCKS IN A SINGLE ARM LOCK. It’s very unorthodox, but finger and hand manipulations are very effective. See how he’s using the fingers to keep the wrist and elbow locked. MAXWELL SHOWING SOME SIGN OF MOVEMENT, SLOWLY GATHER ENERGY, SLOWLY MAKING IT TO EACH OTHERS FEET AND MAXWELL TRIES TO SLIP UNDER THE LOCK BUT SEBAS QUICK WITH THE PELE KICK SENDING MAXWELL CRASHING TO THE CANVAS. SEBAS GRABS MAXWELL’S ARM TO SET UP FOR A ARMBAR SUBMISSION, HIS GOING FOR IT, MAXWELL’S FIGHTING IT, HE’S REACHING FOR THE ROPES, BUT SEBAS DOESN’T MANAGE TO GET IT SET BEFORE MAXWELL IS ABLE TO GET A HAND ON THE BOTTOM ROPE.
James Peters: For just a second there I thought SEBAS was going to get that arm locked, especially after the finger manipulation he wouldn’t have much strength to fight it. He’s a strong man for sure. SEBAS GRABS A LEG AND DRAGS HIM BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING, SEBAS TRYING TO LOCK THE ARMBAR IN AGAIN BUT MAXWELL FIGHTS BACK ROLLS HIMSELF OVER ON TOP AND IS ABLE TO ROLL AWAY.
(Both men circling the ring giving each other nods and smiles.)
Rich Russillo: THEY BOTH COME IN FOR AN ARM AND COLLAR LOCK UP BUT WITH THE STRENGTH MAXWELL HAS OVER SEBAS WAS EASILY ABLE TO PUSH HIM IN TO THE ROPES AND PUSHES HIM SENDING HIM TO THE ROPES MAXWELL GOES FOR A BIG FOREARM BUT SEBAS DUCKS IT COMES OFF THE ROPES CONNECTS MAXWELL WITH A DROPKICK. SEBAS QUICKLY GOES FOR A COVER.
James Peters: MAXWELL KICKS OUT, SEBAS SIGNALLING FOR THE TOP ROPE. SEBAS SLOWLY CLIMBING THE ROPES, TAKING SOME TIME TO GET HIS FOOTING. SHOOTING STAR PRESS, BUT NO MAXWELL GOT HIS KNEES UP AND SEBAS SMASHES HIS CHEST RIGHT IN TO MAXWELL’S KNEES. SEBAS IS ROLLING AROUND THE RING IN AGONY.
(Maxwell stands up with this smartass looking grin on his face as he laughs.)
James Peters: MAXWELL GRABS UP SEBAS AND DELIVERS A DEVASTATING PENDULUM NECKBREAKER, THAT HAD TO TAKE SEBAS OUT. MAXWELL QUICKLY GOES FOR THE COVER.
Rich Russillo: SEBAS BARELY KICKS OUT. YOU SEE THE FRUSTRATION IN MAXWELLS FACE, AS HE CAN’T BELIEVE HE JUST KICKED OUT. MAXWELL THINKING ABOUT WHAT TO DO, GRABS UP SEBAS SETTING HIM UP FOR A RIPCORD…DAAAAMMM…THAT WAS A STATEMENT. MAXWELL SENDS SEBAS ACROSS THE RING WITH A RIPCORD BICYCLE KICK. IF THAT DOESN’T PUT SEBAS AWAY, MAXWELL MIGHT AS WELL PACK HIS BAGS AND GO HOME. MAXWELL DRAGS SEBAS TO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Persephone: WOW, Just wow, see guys when you have been on a losing streak like Maxwell, when you make your first win you want to make a strong statement to the back that you are a changed man when it comes to being in the ring.
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOOOURRRR WINNERRRRRR, MMMAAAAAAXXXXXXXWWWEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!
James Peters: You are so right Persephone, but these two surely put on a great match tonight, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the show is to look like. Fighting Spirit is in a few weeks and these two guys just made a statement that they are on the right path here in EAW, and are making a name for themselves.
(Maxwell shakes off the pain from his hand as the ref raises his hand in victory as he stands there staring at SEBAS moaning and holding his chest.)
Rich Russillo: I have to give it to Maxwell, it’s not easy keeping a good head on your shoulders when you’re on a losing streak, but tonight I hope this is just the beginning of Maxwell, and SEBAS started off good, but it was just Maxwell’s time tonight. Congrats to Maxwell!!
(The camera takes a final shot of Maxwell, before fading elsewhere.)
(Voltage fades into to a nice warm house. The TV is on as someone is watching it on the couch across from it, the person’s leg is propped up on the couch as the camera pans over to show Sierra Bradford. She looks at the camera and turns off the TV before shifting her body to look at the camera she gives a light smile before straightening up and speaking.)
Sierra Bradford: I feel like I need to talk about what happened at Grand Rampage. I’d love to talk about my feelings about how it went down and needless to say you already know what happened. Clearly I don’t need to say I’m upset about what happened since that’s clearly already known at this point, I believe that The Visual Prophet despite his meddling of “not hearing the bell ring” deliberately did what he did and that’s set out to have the intention of hurting me and believe me he has his reasons, it’s something I, no matter how much I try, forgive or forget what happened then. There’s been a absolute rollercoaster of feelings, I’m hurt, I’m angry, you’ve felt that ooze out of Sarah ever since Grand Rampage and believe me I don’t blame her a single bit and you shouldn’t either, and one day when this all is said and done, I vow to make Viz pay for what he’s done.
(Sierra closes her eyes for a moment and gives a sigh before opening them and beginning to speak.)
Sierra Bradford: I feel like though you need the response from me for the big question, the elephant in the room concerning me and that’s Drake King. It pains me to say it, it really does, but Drake and I have taken a step away from one another for a bit, just a little break. I’ll say that Grand Rampage and the Unified Tag Team Championships did come between us, and I think it’s safe to say that I can honestly and wholeheartedly put some of the blame on my shoulders. Whilst as much as people commend me for my determination to become champion, I became too embraced into that feeling, I didn’t have a chance to control my emotions and ultimately it got the best of me to say the very least. Yet, despite that I do have to put some of the blame on Drake’s shoulders as well. As much as he can say it wasn’t his idea to do this match and as much as he can try to push the blame away from himself, both of us should have done a better job of respecting the other during Grand Rampage. Yet despite that me and Drake talk a lot, we talk everyday and believe me despite everything there’s no change in the fact that he’s going through alot as well, and believe me when I say just like he does, I support him. Whenever this whole thing blows over, whenever I can get back to doing the exact thing I love, I have no doubt that we’ll work things out with one another, and let things just go back to normal, because believe it or not we both care about each other alot. Now that that’s pushed out of the way I guess we’ve got to talk about something else too while we’re at it.
(Sierra turns to the leg that is propped up on the couch, it is clearly the injured one as she looks at it and places a hand on it for a moment before looking back up and speaking once more.)
Sierra Bradford: As much as you may consider it really serious, frankly if I’ll be honest with you it’s not as bad as everyone originally thought, and I’m blessed to be able to say that. I did suffer a severe fracture, but thankfully it was broken, and just as everyone had suspected it to be. I can tell you that once all the swelling had gone down as you’d seen in the ring at Grand Rampage, I was treated and now as you can see, I am in a cast. I like to look at the bright side of things and the big one is the fact that the cast should be taken off in 6 weeks time, and you know what that means? It means my first match back will be at Pain For Pride 13. People may doubt my chances of pushing forward and hell I could say even getting on the card, I promise you more than anything else, more than everything else that I’ve put my heart and soul into, everything that I’ve told you up to this cowers in it, that I will make it to the season finale and get myself on the card. I don’t know how I’ll do it, I frankly don’t know what I’ll do, but I’ll do… fucking everything and anything and I will fight till the days end, work my butt off to make sure that no matter what, I will be at Pain For Pride. Because I wouldn’t miss my childhood dream, the moment of gods, I would not miss Pain For Pride for the world. It’s something that I’ve been longing for since I was 9 freaking years old, and if I don’t, I don’t know what I’d do with myself.
(Sierra closes her eyes again once more and takes some deep breaths before nodding and giving a smile to the camera as it begins to pan away as the segment fades out and Voltage cuts to commercial.)
(Commercial break for Sugar Bear hair vitamins featuring Jake Smith and his perfect brunette locks.)
(The commentary team is heard talking in the background as Voltage fades back in.)
Rich Russillo: Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to Voltage. Coming up next, we have a very interesting fight between Colby Sol and Gavin McArdle. There are so many implications to this match, I don’t even know where I can start to talk about it. All I will say for now is that this match will determine the number one contender for the Interwire Championship!
James Peters: That’s right Rich. Also, let’s take a moment and welcome our special guests who will join the commentary team for this match. Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin! Welcome guys, thanks for joining us tonight!
Jesse Barlow: The pleasure is all mine. I am looking forward to see Colby beat up this Irish guy and move on to face that Ava bitc-..
Persephone: Oh you two are on first name terms already? How cute.
(“A history of bad men” by The Melvins plays up as Colby Sol shows up on stage. He looks motivated and focused, as he doesn’t seem to mind Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin who are sitting on commentary.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from The City of Champions, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania…. weighing in at 223 pounds…. COLBYYYY SOOOOOOOL!
James Peters: Alright, let’s try to elaborate this comic book scenario. Jesse Barlow beat Colby Sol last week and that win means that now Colby is forced to serve under him. Colby obviously doesn’t seem too happy about this whole situation, I mean just look at him right now. Does he look happy to you guys? He doesn’t look happy at all to me. Anyways, Colby here wants to get his first win in EAW and what better way to do that than to beat Gavin and become the number one contender in the process?
(He walks all the way down to the ring without paying attention to them. He then stretches in the corner as his tune fades out)
(The Body of an American by the Pogues blasts throughout the arena as Gavin McArdle shows up on stage with his signature stick and his trusty manager, Damien O’Regan)
Bella Braxton: And introducing his opponent… from Monaghan, Ireland, weighing in at 220 pounds…. Gavin MCARDLEEEE!!!
Rich Russillo: Gavin McArdle has shown us that he has all it takes to make it here in EAW. He is ruthless, relentless. He will stop at nothing to get his wins. Tonight he gets the chance to climb up the ranks of Voltage by beating Colby Sol. It won’t be easy, that’s for sure. But I think his doubters shouldn’t count him out just yet.
James Peters: Gavin made it very clear this week. Jesse or not, Colby is still the same loser he was before. Nothing changed and right now we are about to find out if Gavin was right about his opponent.
(Damien approaches the apron as Gavin hands him his hurling stick. He lifts his arms as he looks straight into Colby’s eyes. He is not to be messed with, it seems.)
(DING DING DING)
Rich Russillo: The match is underway and Colby Sol isn’t wasting any time here, he is all over Gavin McArdle and… OOF! What a stiff shot from Colby! Gavin McArdle is on the defensive now, as he is forced to back up in the corner, but Colby doesn’t want to let up! Just a flurry of hits by Colby, I’ve never seen this level of intensity before from him!
James Peters: I guess it might have something to do with his new… associates? Correct?
Jesse Barlow: You are welcome. I can assure you guys and the people watching at home that me and my lovely Hannah are just here to watch the match and enjoy the show. Colby can handle this rabid dog by himself.
James Peters: Whatever you say. The referee had to step in to separate the two. Colby is forced to back up a few feet away from his opponent but he is not done yet, he charges in for a splash… No! Nobody’s home! Gavin got out of the way just in time and now he is on the offensive. Ouch! What a wicked chop to the chest of Colby, that echoed throughout the entire empty arena.
Persephone: So much for being reborn, Colby looks like the same loser he was one week ago to me. Your dark emo boy magic doesn’t seem to be working, Jesse.
Rich Russillo: Maybe he just needs some time to get the engine running. Either way, Gavin McArdle is now in control of the match, as he Irish whips Colby Sol all the way to the opposite corner. Gavin McArdle charges in… OOOF What a running knee, right on the chest of Colby Sol. That took the wind out of his sails for sure. But Gavin isn’t done yet, he catches Colby off the rebound and… Belly to Belly Suplex! Gavin just nailed Colby with a Belly to Belly Suplex, he threw him halfway across the ring! Gavin goes for the cover….
James Peters: Strong Kickout by Colby Sol, it’s way too soon. Remember this match is for the number one contendership for the Interwire Championship, these two are not messing around. Gavin doesn’t let up though and he quickly picks Colby up yet again, he is going for a German Suplex… He launches Colb… Wait! Colby just landed on his feet! ENZIGURI BY COLBY SOL! WHAT A COUNTER!
Jesse Barlow: I told you, these kids have an extreme amount of raw potential. He just needs a mentor like me to really express it and bring it out.
Persephone: I gotta say, that hidden potential you speak of must be hidden real deep because I can’t see it.
James Peters: Colby Sol is not done yet, he just countered the German Suplex with an amazing show of skill and now Gavin is stunned! Gavin stumbles back to his feet… SWINGING NECKBREAKER BY COLBY SOL! HE GOT ALL OF IT… GAVIN ROLLS OUT OF THE RING! HE IS OUT LIKE A LIGHT!
Rich Russillo: Oh no, I don’t like the look of this. Colby Sol is lining up Gavin McArdle. I think I know what is coming next! Gavin is back to his feet at ringside, Colby Sol runs to the ropes, bounces off and he goes for a Suicide Dive!!! NO! GAVIN CATCHED HIM IN MID AIR! WHAT AN AMAZING SHOW OF POWER BY GAVIN! AND NOW A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX ON THE FLOOR! OUCH! THAT’S GOING TO HURT TOMORROW!
James Peters: Damien O’Regan had to get out of the way just in time, he was about to get floored by that belly to belly suplex! This move has probably changed the whole complexion of this match, I’m not sure Colby Sol will be able to come back from this.
Jesse Barlow: Don’t be silly, James. Colby has a lot left in the tank, I am sure he is going to find a way to turn things around. Of course you can’t see it yet because you are just dumb, what do you know about talent?
Hannah Marin: You have to get in your thick skull that Colby Sol is a changed man now. He has fully accepted his fate and he is now going to take flight and reach new heights in his career, under the guidance of Jesse.
Persephone: He has yet to win a match in EAW, darling. That is not saying much.
Hannah Marin: …
Rich Russillo: Back to the action! Damien is cheering his friend on as Gavin McArdle throws Colby Sol back inside the ring. He is in complete control now and if he manages to keep it, things should go downhill for him. Colby Sol is now gasping for air in the middle of the ring, as Gavin attacks him with a wicked stomp to the chest. Ouch! Yet another stomp, this time to the midsection. Gavin then applies a headlock in the middle of the ring. I wasn’t expecting this type of offense from him!
James Peters: Well yeah! Everyone is talking about Colby this and Colby that! But Gavin McArdle has shown that people shouldn’t be sleeping on him. The one who is about to go to sleep is Colby actually, unless he finds a way to escape this rough predicament. Colby Sol is now back to his feet, the ropes are too far away, he is going to have to escape the old fashioned way. A stiff elbow to the ribcage of Gavin forces him to release the hold momentarily. Oh no! What a hard kick to the gut of Colby! Gavin is still in control. He picks Colby up in a Powerbomb position… oh no, this is going to hurt for sure! Colby is now up in the air, he is trying to punch his way out of this hold… NO! I SPOKE TOO SOON! GAVIN MCARDLE JUST POWERBOMBED COLBY SOL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! WHAT A NASTY FALL FOR COLBY!
Jesse Barlow (To Damien): Yeah, laugh all you want, you hillbilly f***…
Rich Russillo: Wait a minute! Gavin isn’t going for the cover, instead he is trying to lock Colby Sol in his Cloverleaf. Are we about to see the Irish Delight?! Colby as to fight out of this or he is going to find himself in big, big trouble! Gavin is struggling, Colby is fighting back! He wants none of it! Colby manages to use his leg strength to push Gavin off him… the Irish man bounces off the ropes, as Colby quickly gets back to his feet…. SOL FOOD! THE EAT DEFEAT CONNECTS TO PERFECTION! I THINK HE JUST DECAPITATED HIM! THE COVER….
James Peters: Kickout! Kickout! Kickout by Gavin! He is still in this fight but just like that, the table has been turned against him.
Hannah Marin: See? I told you guys. All Colby needed to fully express his untapped potential was to find a loving family and he found just that in me and Jesse. It’s such a joy seeing him dominate this Rookie.
James Peters: Oh, give me a break Hannah. We all know why Jesse Barlow is so eager to watch Colby win tonight. The winner of this match goes on to face Consuela for the Interwire Championship and we all know you two have some serious history. Excuse me if I am not buying this whole “paternalistic” approach you have shown off these past few weeks.
Jesse Barlow: First off, nobody asked for your opinion. Second of all, I’ve been trying to save many, many people in the past but nobody was ever willing to listen to me. Now, Colby managed to put his pride aside and enter our family and look! He just nailed Gavin with a Superman Punch! Did you see that?!
Persephone: Yes but I wish I could unsee it.
Rich Russillo: Colby Sol is going all out tonight, for sure. He wants this title shot badly and we all know what a win tonight means for this young man. It would be his first singles win in EAW! Colby has to keep his head cool and maintain control of the match! Gavin McArdle has been laid out on the mat yet again. Colby Sol now is on the apron, he is probably going for the Kryptonite here! Oh no what’s this?! Damien just got in the way! He grabbed the foot of Colby and the referee didn’t see him! Wait! He saw him just now and he is telling him to back off! Remember, Gavin gets disqualified, Colby Sol will still become the new number one contender!
Jesse Barlow: Distracting someone is such a scummy move, I’d never do that…
Hannah Marin: I know right, me neither. You must be a certified loser to do that…
James Peters: …
Rich Russillo: …
James Peters: Anyways, it looks like the distraction has paid off! Gavin is now back to his feet and he has fully recovered! Colby leaps in the air for the Springboard Superman Pu… NO! GAVIN JUST CAUGHT HIM IN MID AIR AND SLAMMED HIM TO THE MAT IN A POWERBOMB! THE DISTRACTION BY DAMIEN WORKED FLAWLESSLY AND GAVIN TOOK ADVANTAGE! THIS TIME HE DOES NOT WASTE ANY TIME AND HE IMMEDIATELY LOCKS COLBY SOL IN THE CLOVERLEAF! THE IRISH DELIGHT IS LOCKED IN! COLBY SOL MIGHT HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO TAP OUT HERE!
Persephone: Imagine being outwrestled by a rabid dog such as Gavin McArdle. Yeah, only a loser like Colby Sol would manage to do that.
Rich Russillo: Colby Sol has to fight through the pain! He cannot tap out just yet, he must fight out of this predicament! Colby is slowly trying to crawl towards the ropes… Gavin is doing everything he can to stop him from reaching the bottom rope… AAAND HE DOES! COLBY SOL GRABBED THE BOTTOM ROPE, THE REFEREE HAS TO BREAK THE HOLD. HE STARTS THE COUNT, GAVIN HAS TO LET HIM GO NOW OR ELSE HE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED
James Peters: Phew, that was close! But once again, Colby Sol found a way to dig way down deep and fight through the pain. I am afraid that move took its toll on his body, though, he seems out of it! Gavin McArdle is looking to put this match away as Damien looks on at ringside. He seems to like what he is seeing right now. Gavin is calling for the Ireland’s Call! His Gutwrench Powerbomb! This might be it, don’t you think Jesse? Hey wait a minute! Jesse? Hannah?
Rich Russillo: Where did they go!? Oh no! There she is! Hannah Marin just got on the apron! What in the world is she thinking!? I am not sure what she has in mind but she is screaming at Gavin! The referee doesn’t seem to care too much, though! Colby Sol is still out like a light… WHAT! DAMIEN JUST GOT A HOLD OF HANNAH MARIN AND HE GOT HER OFF THE APRON BY FORCE! WHAT THE HECK IS HAPPENING HERE! HANNAH IS SCREAMING AND STRUGGLING LIKE A EEL AS DAMIEN IS TRYING IS BEST TO RESTRAIN HER!
Persephone: Who wouldn’t try to break free from his grasp?! Imagine how badly that guy stinks! Yuck! I can smell his sweat from here!
James Peters: What in the world is going on here? Now the referee has been distracted by the action going on at ringside. Gavin is distracted as well, meanwhile Colby is still knocked out cold on the mat. I think he is out of it. Complete chaos on Voltage tonight, Ladies and Gen… NO WAY! JESSE BARLOW! JESSE BARLOW JUST HIT GAVIN MCARDLE WITH HIS BRASS KNUCKLES OUT OF NOWHERE! THE REFEREE WAS DISTRACTED BUT THE ACTION AT RINGSIDE AND HE DID NOT SEE JESSE! AND I BELIEVE, NOT EVEN COLBY SOL KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT JUST HAPPENED THERE!
Rich Russillo: Doesn’t matter now! The stakes are way too high! Hannah Marin is still struggling like a wild animal, but Damien doesn’t want to let her go.. REPENTE!!! JESSE BARLOW JUST MURDERED DAMIEN WITH A BRUTAL SHOT TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL, OH MY LORD. HE JUST KILLED HIM! HANNAH IS FREE NOW, THE TWO ARE HUGGING!
James Peters: Meanwhile, in the middle of the ring, Colby Sol has finally managed to get back to his feet using the ropes as leverage. He needs to put this one away now! Gavin is completely out of it! Colby Sol picks him up in the powerbomb position… SOL REAPER! SOL REAPER ON GAVIN! THIS HAS TO BE IT! THE REFEREE SLIDES IN FOR THE COUNT…
(DING DING DING)
(“A history of bad men” by The Melvins plays up again as Colby’s arm is raised in victory)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…. COLBY SOOOOL!!!
Rich Russillo: Oh. My. God. I still have no idea of what just happened. I cannot believe my eyes. There were bodies all over the place. And.. wait a moment! Did Colby Sol just win his first match in EAW? I am shocked!
James Peters: Yes, he sure did! Not just that, but he will now face Consuela for the Interwire Championship! Not too bad! It seems like his new formed pact with Jesse Barlow is proving to be quite profitable for him. Gavin has nothing to be ashamed of, though. He was straight up robbed of his chance to fight for the title!
Persephone: I cannot believe this loser-fest. Jesse Barlow has to win Colby’s first match for him because he obviously couldn’t do it by himself. What a loser.
(Colby looks at Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin who made their way to the top of the ramp while the referee was raising his arm in victory. The three simply stare at each other as his theme fades out).
(The camera cuts to a promotional video for Fighting Spirit, the upcoming Voltage Free Per View!)
(A promotional ad for Fighting Spirit:

(Voltage returns from commercial break, and “Spotlight Savior” by Iggy Azalea is playing in the background. The EAW Specialists Champion, Darcy May Morgan, has made her way to the ring during the break and she is twirling the microphone in her hands. She is dressed in her ring gear, with her sunglasses on, and the Specialists Championship belt on her shoulder.)
James Peters: Welcome back to Voltage, and what a hell of a surprise! The Specialists Champ is here :blessed:!!!
Persephone: And I can smell her from all the way over here! Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. I wonder when Darcy took a bath last?? I know Brits are known for their bad hygiene and whatnot, but yikes! I’m literally about to throw up!
Rich Russillo: Persephone, you are the most beautiful woman I know, which is why I’m going to tell you that talkin’ shit about Darcy May Morgan isn’t the best idea you’ve ever had.
Persephone: :mjpls: Give me a break. I’m not scared of that smelly whore.
(Darcy’s music has faded out and the champion sighs into the microphone.)
Darcy May Morgan: Needless to say when I arrived here earlier this afternoon, I almost had a fit of PTSD when I saw the good doctor sitting outside of the arena with the real medical professionals. Obviously we are all still getting screened before we enter the building, but thankfully Dr. Bethany Blue received a phone call of some kind and left, which allowed me to get properly screened and get clearance into the PC tonight. :whew: Glad, I didn’t have to deal with that crazy bitch again! She seems to have a lot on her plate right now and I am sure the Specialists Championship is the furthest thing from her mind.
Darcy May Morgan: After destroying Melissa O’Malley the other night and spelling things out for Sarah, I got to thinking. I know I said this would be my easiest championship defense of all, but do I actually want that? I’m The Leading Lady. I should be setting the standard for EVERY woman here, which is why I feel I should personally take it upon myself to make sure that Sarah is actually ready for our match at Gateway to Glory, and that she doesn’t just roll over and die like I expect her too. I know that sounds crazy. I’m sure people are going to question why I don’t just go for the obvious easy victory and let Sarah self destruct like she usually does. But we are on the road to Pain for Pride. It’s my goal to break that record for the longest Specialists Championship reign and walk into my second Pain for Pride as a champion. I have carried this belt with pride since winning it, and I have gone above and beyond to defend it with honor. I have been in a lot of wars and it means the world to me that I have survived them all by vanquishing those who’ve tried to oppose me. It would be doing my own self a disservice, as well as this championship, if I were to take the easy victory and go on to shatter the record without breaking a sweat. I’m not here to take it easy. :wow:
Darcy May Morgan: I know Sarah has a match coming up against Dr. Blue, and I know that right now, she’s backstage somewhere hanging on my every word. Sarah, tonight I’m going to give you your first official lesson on how to get the job done properly in the ring. I have hand-selected an opponent for myself and I am going to show you how to win a match cleanly here in EAW. I know you saw me do just that on Dynasty, and in decisive fashion, and lucky for you, you are going to get to see it again!
Rich Russillo: Wow! Darcy May Morgan is going to be wrestling on Voltage! That’s great news!!
Persephone: Is it?! I would much rather watch Rex McAllister’s Hall of Fame video on a loop!
(An unknown theme song begins to play as the camera focuses on the stage.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL! Already in the ring, from Kent, United Kingdom… weighing in at 130 pounds… she is the EAW Specialists Champion, ‘The Leading Lady’ DARCY MAY MORGAN!
(While Darcy’s introduction had been going on, a young woman with bright pink hair and a gorgeous smile stepped onto the stage. She’s now making her way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent… from Adelaide, Australia… weighing in at 121 pounds… please welcome…. Poppy Lynn Thompson!
James Peters: Now Poppy Lynn is going to be a name that is familiar with our diehard members of the EAW Universe. The young Australian signed a developmental contract with EAW in December of last year and has been training at the Performance Center since February. Only 19-years old, Poppy Lynn has been wrestling since the age of 16 in her home country of Australia, and has the potential to be a huge star here in the world of professional wrestling.
Rich Russillo: That’s right, James. Poppy Lynn has already shattered records here at the PC, in terms of how fast she is. She clocked the fastest time for the women during the 100-yard dash at the PC combine back in March.
(Poppy Lynn has gotten into the ring, and a referee has also made his way out. Darcy has given up the championship and is using the ropes to stretch, and Poppy Lynn looks nervous, but excited about this match.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: HERE WE GO! POPPY LYNN THOMPSON GOES TO LOCK UP WITH DARCY MAY MORGAN!
Rich Russillo: FACE ACHE! DARCY SNUFFED HER WITH A SUPERKICK! POPPY LYNN IS DOWN ON THE MAT AND HOLDING HER JAW, AND DARCY QUICKLY GRABS HER UP! SHE PLACES THE DAZED POPPY LYNN ACROSS HER SHOULDERS AND NAILS HER WITH INVERTED GTS!!!! ‘THE CURTAIN CALL’ HAS TAKEN OUT POPPY LYNN THOMPSON AND DARCY DRAPES HERSELF OVER POPPY FOR THE COVER!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Persephone: LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THAT’S IT?! LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… DARCY MAY MORGAN!
(“Spotlight Savior” begins to play, but Darcy waves off her music. She isn’t even breathing hard and she grabs the microphone once again.)
Darcy May Morgan: Raise my hand!
(The referee raises her hand, and after a moment, Darcy pulls away. She turns, so she can look directly into the camera and address Sarah.)
Darcy May Morgan: Lesson one, Sarah. Don’t even let your opponent have a chance. If you see an opening, you go for the kill. Don’t be a bitch and hold back, and let the match drag on. If you can end things early, end it. The shorter the match is, the less chance someone has of coming along and interfering. If you really want to prove you have what it takes to win a match on your own, then you have to actually be talented enough to see your openings and take them.
(Darcy smiles sweetly and turns around, finding herself face to face with the woman she just defeated, Poppy Lynn.)
James Peters: Unfortunately for Poppy Lynn, her main roster debut did not go well. She got utterly destroyed by the Specialists Champion, but there doesn’t seem to be any hard feelings on her part. She’s congratulating Darcy on the win and extending her hand in a show of sportsmanship.
Rich Russillo: Darcy nods and shakes Poppy’s ha-
Persephone: SHE JUST HIT THAT DUMB BITCH WITH DON’T DISS DARCY! THE BICYCLE KNEE HAS LAID OUT FLOPPY JYNN AND NOW DARCY IS PUTTING THE BOOTS TO HER!
James Peters: THE REFEREE TRIES TO BREAK IT UP, BUT DARCY SHOVES HIM AWAY AND DROPS DOWN! SHE IS WAILING AWAY ON POPPY NOW! THIS POOR GIRL NEVER HAD A CHANCE TONIGHT AND DARCY IS MAKING SURE SHE SENDS POPPY BACK TO HER TRAINING CLASSES WITH SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!
Rich Russillo: SARAH PRICE IS IN THE RING! SHE HITS DARCY WITH A KICK TO THE HEAD! THE SPECIALISTS CHAMP ROLLS OFF POPPY AND SARAH MOTIONS FOR DARCY TO GET UP! DARCY QUICKLY ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, HOLDING HER HEAD, CLEARLY SURPRISED AT SARAH’S ATTACK!
(Sarah is down beside Poppy now, checking her over, and helping the referee get her into a sitting position. Darcy is beside herself on the outside of the ring, surprised at how quickly Sarah came at her out of nowhere. The champion storms over to the timekeeper’s desk and grabs her title, cradling it to her chest. Darcy isn’t happy right now at all.)
James Peters: If we know anything about Sarah Price, it’s that she’s not going to stand around and watch other people get bullied. Poppy Lynn was defeated fairly and wanted to show Darcy some sportsmanship afterwards, but Darcy took it to another level by attacking her.
Rich Russillo: Poppy should have just stayed down. We all know how Darcy operates and she said herself she was going to teach Sarah some lessons leading up to Gateway to Glory.
Persephone: Clearly, the smelly hoe got more than she bargained for!
(Sarah is up now and leaning against the ropes, watching as Darcy retreats. The champion is trash talking her Gateway to Glory opponent, and she makes her way to the top of the stage, Darcy holds the Specialists Championship up.)
Darcy May Morgan (Off Mic): You’ll never get your hands on this belt.
Sarah Price (Off Mic): We’ll see.
(The camera takes a final shot of Darcy glaring at Sarah, before fading into a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Ulta Beauty featuring Sienna Jade.)
(Voltage returns and cuts to the ring. Sarah Price is already waiting in the ring from her previous appearance.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A SINGLLLEEESSS CONTTTEEESSSTT AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONNNNNNE FALLLLLLLLLL!!!!
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF LONDON, IN THE UNITEEEEEDDDDDDD KINNGGGDOOMMMMMMMM, WEIGHING IN AT 121 POUNDSSSSS, SARAHHHHHHHHHH “THE SUPPERRRHEEROOOOOO” PRIIICCCCCEEEEEEE!!!!!
(“Bad Medicine” by Bon Jovi begins to play as Dr. Bethany Blue makes her way onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: ANNNDDDD HERRRR OPPONENT, WEIGHING IN AT 128 POUNDSSSS, WRESTLING OUT OF MIAAAAMIIIII, FLOORRIIDDDAAAAAA, THEEEEEEEE DOCCCTOORRRRRR, BETHANNNNYYYYYYY BLUEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
James Peters: Dr. Bethany Blue’s been on a mean streak lately and she looks to continue that same streak tonight on Sarah Price. Dr. Bethany Blue may appear to be a harmless doctor, aiding in the health of her peers, though she’s a deadly, calculated, and dangerous individual beneath the surface. She never shies away from utilizing whatever break in the rules that she can, which doesn’t bode well for Sarah Price. Sarah will need to showcase an entirely new side of herself tonight if she wishes to come out the other side triumphant. Push the boundaries of her morality and humanity, because God knows Dr. Bethany Blue will do the same thing to her.
Rich Russillo: Oh boy, this is gonna be a nail biter!
Persephone: “tHiS iS goNnA bE a NaiLbiTeR!” Shut the hell up, you worm headed freak. Let’s proceed with the match, shall we?
James Peters: For once, I couldn’t agree more, Persephone! Let’s get into what is a sure to be classic!!
(The referee signals for the timekeeper to ring the bell three times, indicating the official beginning of the match.)
DING! DING! DING!
James Peters: We are off! This match between Dr. Bethany Blue and Sarah Price is officially underway. The Doctor immediately pushing forward, muscling Sarah Price back to the corner. Dr. Bethany Blue’s forearm buried deeply into the cheek of Sarah Price, not allowing her to regroup. The referee gives The Doctor a five count, of which she uses every second to further disorient Sarah Price. The Doctor releases Price, who drops to a knee.
Rich Russillo: What an incredibly aggressive start from Dr. Bethany Blue, preventing Sarah Price from being able to implement her game plan early. Dr. Bethany Blue looks to dictate the pace of this match from the get go. The Doctor now delivers a NASTY EUROPEAN FOREARM TO THE JAW OF SARAH!! That one rocked here! What a shot from The Doctor, who does not appear to be giving Sarah any room to breathe. Dr. Bethany Blue lifting Price back up to a vertical base, looking for another big move! LIFTING SARAH PRICE HIGH IN THE SKIES, SHE’S KEEPING HER ELEVATED!! THE DOCTOR SUSPENING SARAH PRICE UP IN THE AIR, ALLOWING ALL THE BLOOD TO RUSH TO THE HEAD OF SARAH PRICE!!! NOW DROPPING HER TO THE CANVAS WITH A VERTICAL SUPLEX!! WHAT POWER FROM DR. BETHANY BLUE!!!
Persephone: The Doctor displaying her power early on. That immense power combined with this nasty attitude she’s giving off, quite a dangerous combination.
James Peters: You got that right, Persephone. She’s out for blood tonight.
Persephone: I know I’m right, no need to assure me, Jim. Dr. Bethany Blue now attempting to lock the arms of Sarah Price, perhaps looking for a tiger suplex! Dr. Bethany Blue’s got her hooked, The Doctor about deliver a dose of something awfully potent! THE TIGER SU- NO, SARAH PRICE ESCAPES AND COUNTERS WITH A JAWBREAKER! STUNNING THE DOCTOR!! PRICE NOW WITH A HEADSTAND AND SHE TURNS IT INTO THE HEADSCISSORS!!! SENDING THE DOCTOR TUMBLING ACROSS THE CANVAS!!! Dr. Bethany Blue back up to her feet, BUT SHE’S MET WITH A DROPKICK FROM SARAH PRICE!!! WOW!! WHERE DID SARAH PRICE FIND THAT SURGE OF ENERGY, STRINGING TOGETHER A SEQUENCE OF COUNTERS, TURNING THIS MATCH AROUND IN A FLASH!!
James Peters: The uberly athletic Sarah Price demonstrating why she is one of the most promising, talented, and bright stars Voltage has to offer! Dr. Bethany Blue rolling out of the ring, avoiding any further assault from Sarah Price. But Sarah Price will offer her no quarter, no time to rest. Sarah Price charges at an unsuspecting Doctor, looking for a hurricanrana on the outside! BUT SHE WAS CAUGHT, DR. BETHANY BLUE ABLE TO AVOID THE HURRICANRANA, AND NOW LAUNCHES SARAH PRICE WITH A FALLAWAY SLAM ONTO THE FLOOR!! GOOD GOD, YOU COULD HEAR THE SOUND OF HER ORGANS RATTLING AGAINST HER RIBCAGE FROM HERE!! What a counter from The Doctor! Dr. Bethany Blue now suspening Sarah Price in the air once again, NOT ON THE FLOOR!! THE DOCTOR ELEVATING SARAH PRICE FOR SEVERAL SECONDS AND THEN RIPPING HER DOWN TO THE FLOOR!!! SARAH PRICE’S BODY SLAMMING AGAINST THE UNFORGIVING FLOOR OF THE OUTSIDE AREA!!
Rich Russillo: Oh, man. Sarah Price is now coughing up blood, she’s gotta be suffering from a multitude of internal injuries after making a hard connection with the floor several times. The blood staining her attire and skin,but Dr. Bethany Blue doesn’t bat an eye. The Doctor now rolls Sarah Price back into the ring, looking perhaps to finish this match right here. Dr. Bethany Blue sizing Sarah up, LOOKING FOR THE TJD!! That massive front kick to the jaw of her opponent, this will surely seal Sarah’s fate!! THE DOCTOR WITH THE TJD- BUT SARAH NARROWLY AVOIDS IT, JUST ESCAPING PERIL!! sARAH PRICE HEADING OUT TO THE ARPONE, CALLING FOR SOMETHING BIG!!! NOW LAUNCHING HERSELF OFF THE ROPES AND DELIVERS A FLYING KNEE TO THE FACE OF THE DOCTOR!!! THE DOCTOR MIGHT NEED TO SEE A DENTIST HERSELF AFTER THAT ONE!!
Persephone: SARAH PRICE GAINING MOMENTUM IN THIS MATCH, LOOKING FOR A STANDING SHIRANUI OT A STUNNED DR. BETHANY BLUE!!! PRICE LAUNCHING HERSELF INTO THE AIR, BUT THE DOCTOR KEEPS HER THERE, PREVENTING THE SHIRANUI!!! NOW DROPPING SARAH BACK O THE CANVAS, HIGH FROM THE SKIES, RIGHT ON HER MIDSECTION!!! THE DOCTOR QUICKLY HEADS UP TO THE SECOND ROPE, SHOWCASING HER AGILITY!! NOW DROPPING HER KNEE RIGHT ONTO THE STOMACH OF SARAH PRICE!!!! MY LORD!!! SARAH PRICE JUST HAD A KNEE DRIVEN INTO HER GUT FROM THE SECOND ROPE, BLOOD CONTINUES TO LEAK FROM HER MOUTH!!! I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE THE INJURIES SHE’S FIGHTING THROUGH RIGHT NOW!!
James Peters: THE DOCTOR HEADS IN FOR THE PIN, THIS COULD BE IT!!!
James Peters: KICKOUT!!! SARAH PRICE STAYS ALIVE IN THIS MATCH!!! DR. BETHANY BLUE WITH A LOOK OF DISGUST ON HER FACE, SHE CANT BELIEVE SARAH PRICE IS STILL IN THIS MATCH!!! SHE KNOWS SHE CAN’T WASTE ANY TIME, SHE KNOWS SHE’S GOT SARAH PRICE ON THE ROPES AND MUST CAPITALIZE!! THE DOCTOR LOOKING FOR THE “FRACTURED” SUBMISSION!!! THIS SPINE BREAKING BOSTON CRAB HAS ENDED SO MANY ON VOLTAGE AND SARAH’S BODY IS ALREADY SO WEAK!! SARAH APPEARS LIFELESS AND IS THE DOCTOR’S FOR THE TAKING!! DR. BETHANY BLUE IS GOING TO LOCK IN TH- WAIT, SARAH PRICE WAS PLAYING POSSUM, SCHOOL GIRL ROLLUP, SHE ROLLS UP THE DOCTOR!!!!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT!! SARAH PRICE WAS PLAYING POSSUM THE ENTIRE TIME AND ALMOST FOUND HERSELF TRIUMPHANT!!! THE DOCTOR APPEARS DISGUSTED THAT SARAH WOULD TRY SUCH A MOVE!!! DR. BETHANY BLUE NOW CHOPS DOWN THE KNEE OF SARAH PRICE!!
Persephone: Sarah crumbling to the canvas, her foundation ripped away from her! DR. BETHANY BLUE NOW STOMPING AWAY AT THE KNEE OF SARAH PRICE, NOW SHE BEGINS TO STOMP AWAY AT THE MIDSECTION!!! THE INJURIES OF PRICE ONLY BEING EXACERBATED!!! THE DOCTOR HEADS UP TO THE SECOND ROPE AGAIN, SCALING THE TURNBUCKLES!! PERHAPS LOOKING TO DROP THE KNEE ONCE AGAIN ON THE STOMACH OF PRICE!! SHE DROPS OFF THE ROPE, BUT SARAH PRICE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY, NO WATER IN THE POOL FOR THE DOCTOR!!! NOW SARAH PRICE BEGINS STOMPING AWAY AT THE BODY OF THE DOCTOR, RETURNING THE FAVOR!!! SARAH PRICE APPEARS INFURIATED, SHE’S READY TO RIP THE DOCTOR’S HEAD OFF!!! SARAH PRICE BRINGS THE DOCTOR TO HER FEET, LOOKING FOR THE “PLOT TWIST”!! SHE SPINS THE DOCTOR AND DELIVERS A RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE RIGHT TO THE FACE!!! WHAT A KNEE FROM SARAH PRICE!!! THE DOCTOR FALLS DOWN ONTO THE CHEST OF SARAH PRICE, WHO’S NOT EVEN CLOSE TO DONE YET!!! SARAH PRICE WITH A DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER TO THE DOC!!! ONCE AGAIN WEAKENING THE JAW OF DR. BETHANY BLUE!!! WHAT A SEQUENCE FROM SARAH PRICE!!!
Rich Russillo: Dr. Bethany Blue rolls to the outside once again, looking to again avoid any further assault from the bloodthirsty Sarah price. It’s hard to imagine Sarah asd anything but the energetic and kind competitor we know her to be, but The Doctors’ antics and assault tonight have brought out a new side of Sarah Price! Dr. Bethany Blue looking to escape peril, BUT SARAH GRABS HER AND LAUNCHES DR. BETHANY BLUE FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POLE!! THE DOCTOR’S FACE BUSTED WIDE OPEN, BLOOD SEEPING FROM A GASH ON HER HEAD!!! THE DOCTOR NOW NOW FALLS DOWN TO THE FLOOR, ABSOLUTELY STUNNED AFTER COLLIDING WITH THE RING POLE!!!
James Peters: The referee exits the ring, instructing both women to re-enter the ring if they wish for this match to continue. Sarah Price brings The Doctor up to her feet, BUT DR. BETHANY BLUE LAUNCHES HERSELF FORWARD WITH A EUROPEAN FOREARM, BUT SARAH PRICE AVOIDS IT AND THE DOCTOR NAILS THE REFEREE!!! OH NO!!! DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST TOOK OUT THE REFEREE WITH A HORRIBLE FOREARM, NOW SARAH PRICE LOOKS FOR A CLOTHESLINE, BUT THE DOCTOR COUNTERS AND DRIVES PRICE DOWN ONTO THE FLOOR WITH A TIGER SUPLEX!!! OUCH!!!
Persephone: Dr. Bethany Blue realizes the referee is down, oh no. She heads over to the timekeeper area, where her entrance attire is being held. The doctor GRABS HER STETHOSCOPE AND MALICIOUSLY SMIRKS AT SARAH PRICE!!! OH NO, DOC. PLEASE DON’T!!! DR. BETHANY BLUE WHIPS SARAH PRICE WITH THE STETHOSCOPE!!!!! GOOD FUCKING GOD!!! AGAIN AND AGAIN SHE BEATS HER!! DR. BETHANY BLUE DROPS THE STETHOSCOPE AFTER SEVERAL STINGING SHOTS TO THE BACK OF SARAH PRICE!!!
James Peters: Dr. Bethany Blue is about to capitalize off illegally using that stethoscope to her advantage, bringing Sarah Price back up to her feet. Looking to bounce the head of Price off the apron, THE DOCTOR SLAMS THE- WAIT, SARAH PRICE COUNTERS, PIVOTS HER HEAD TOWARDS THE DOCTOR, TEARS IN HER EYES, SHE’S WEARING HER RAGE LIKE A MASK!!! SARAH PRICE DRIVES THE HEAD OF DR. BETHANY BLUE INTO THE APRON, SENDING BLOOD FURTHER STAINING THE SKIN OF BOTH WOMEN!!! Wait, what the hell? Sarah Price slowly picks up the stethoscope, gripping it tightly. Eyeing the very woman who gashed her skin with it just a few moments ago. Sarah Price is about to compromise herself in order to act on her revenge. Don’t do it, Sarah! She appears torn, as if she cannot decide whether to return the favor, or rise above the tactics and cheating used by The Doctor!! SARAH PRICE RAISES THE STETHOSCOPE IN THE AIR, SHE’S GOING TO SCAR DR. BETHANY BLUE FOR THAT!!!
Persephone: OH GOD!!!!
Rich Russillo: DO IT, SARAH!!!
James Peters: SARAH DROPS THE STETHOSCOPE AND ROLLS DR. BETHANY BLUE BACK INTO THE RING!!!! SHE OVERCAME THE DIRTY TACTICS OF DR. BETHANY BLUE!! SHE’S SHOWING THE HEART OF A TRUE WARRIOR!!! EVEN IN THE FACE OF ALL EVIL, SARAH PRICE RECOGNIZES HER HUMANITY IS HER STRENGTH!! Sarah Price helping the referee back into the ring, looking to seal the fate of Dr. Bethany Blue!!!
Rich Russillo: SARAH PRICE SIZING UP THE DOCTOR, WHO’S BEGINNING TO COME TO!! SARAH PRICE WITH THE “ENNNCHHAAANTTMMEENNNTTT BRREEEAKKKEERRR”!!!!! THAT RUNNING BUKKAKE KNEE STRIKE RIGHT TO THE FACE OF DR. BETHANY BLUE!!!! THE CANVAS RUNS RED WITH THE BLOOD OF THESE WARRIORS, BATHED IN THE SATURATION OF THEIR STRENGTH!!!

ON THAT ALREADY INJURED MIDSECTION, SARAH PRICE KICKING HER LEGS AND DESPERATELY CLENCHING HER MIDSECTION!!! NOW THE DOCTOR RISES TO HER FEET, WIPING THE BLOOD FROM HER EYES, SHE’S GOING TO MAKE PRICE PAY!!
Persephone: OH GOD, SHE’S LOOKING FOR THE “FLATLINE”!!! THAT DEVASTATING ELEVATED SUPLEX TURNED INTO A PILEDRIVER!!! CAUSING ALL THE BLOOD TO RUSH TO THE HEAD OF HER OPPONENT, MAKING IT ALL THE WORSE WHEN SHE DROPS THEM RIGHT ON IT!!! DR. BETHANY BLUE LOOKING FOR THE “FLLLLLAAAAAAAATLINERRRRRRRRRRR”!!!!!

DING! DING! DING!
Bella Braxton: HEREEEEEE IS YOOURRR WINNNERRRRRRRRRRRR, DOCCCTTTTOORRRRR. BETTTHHANNNYYYYYYY BLLLLLLLUUUUEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Wow. Just wow. What an amazing match. Two warriors delivering another Voltage classic here tonight. A damn shame after everything Sarah Price fought through, after all the adversities, she was cheated out of a win, by Dr. Bethany Blue, who quite clearly holds the tights.
Rich Russillo: Tights or not, The Doc. pulled out a win tonight. A win is a win. Congratulations to Dr. Bethany Blue, but Price has no reason to hang her head. What a performance she put on. She may have lost, but she’s certainly not a loser. She’s got a bright future ahead of her and who knows? She could end up becoming our next Specialists Champion!
(As Dr. Bethany Blue celebrates her victory in the ring, standing over the beaten and battered body of Sarah Price, the camera shows Darcy May Morgan, The Specialists Champion, closely watching in dismay as she holds her championship tightly across her shoulder.)
Darcy May Morgan: Figures. Sarah Price, you failed tonight, just as you’ll fail at Gateway To Glory. Your performance was in no way conving. Sigh, our chances at Gateway To Glory of giving this championship the caliber matches it deserves are slim to none because of you.
(Darcy May Morgan exits the shot as the camera fades to black.)
(The scene switches from the ring to the parking lot of the EAW Performance Center. A gorgeous customized 2020 Bugatti Chiron Noire has pulled up to the back entrance. It comes to a screeching halt and after a moment, the doors fly open and a smug, overly confident Chris Elite steps onto the pavement. He’s dressed to the nines, clearly flaunting his wealth and status and for good reason. He’s come to Voltage with a purpose, and it’s about to be revealed.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Twix candy bars featuring Cameron Ella Ava and Consuela Rose Ava, which has clearly been filmed before Grand Rampage happened :mjcry:. Twix! Are you a left or a right??)
(Voltage returns, and the commentary team are heard talking in the background.)
James Peters: Before the break, we saw Dynasty Elitist and Gawd Contract holder, Chris Elite, pull up. From what we understand, Mr.DEDEDE and Kassidy Heart have left the building, which could be a good thing considering everything that’s been going on between those three.
Rich Russillo: After last night’s Showdown, I think things are only going heat up between all the parties involved in this war over the Gawd Contract. Mr. DEDEDE and Kassidy were set to burn the thing, when HRDO got involved, and provided Mr. DEDEDE with a different perspective on things. I’m not sure where any of this is going to go, but one thing’s for sure, it’s probably going to get even more ugly.
Persephone: Like honestly, this shit is so boring and repetitive. Like I don’t give a shit if Chris Elite wants to bully people with a piece of paper. It’s stupid. This whole show is stupid.
(“Invincible” by Pop Smoke begins to play throughout the Performance Center.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome ‘Gawd Given Greatness’ himself, Chris Elite!
Persephone: So not impressed.
Rich Russillo: Look at the absolute arrogance dripping from Chris Elite tonight. You gotta believe he is on top of the world after HRDO set DEDEDE straight last night.
James Peters: There will be repercussions for that, I’m sure, and Chris has been around long enough to know that you don’t just get to force the Chairman’s hand and be done with it. There are consequences for every action.
(Chris Elite has made his way to the ring and has a microphone in his hand. Bella has exited, which leaves Chris with the entire ring to himself. His theme music fades out and he paces around a bit before he starts speaking.)
Chris Elite: Showdown was real cute last night, but don’t worry, beloves, that’ll be addressed in due time. I know DDDIckless done been here tonight and made himself a match for the EAW World Championship at Fighting Spirit, and as tempting as it is for me to fuck with it and replace him with myself, I got something else in mind for this show. The Jaded Thots wanna run around on Dynasty crying about the situation they basically got themselves in, and beg me to change their situation because the one with the supposed clout is too afraid to approach her big bad wolf of a fake husband and ask him for a favor. Shittin me. Fuck little bitches wanna act like they so fucking tough, but the second things don’t go their way they dissolve into a fucking mess of emotions and their true colors really come out. High maintenance, privileged little cunts, but you see, ole Bhrissy is a giving individual. The thots wanted a fighting chance, Ima give them a fighting chance. The thing I gotta decide on now is whether or not I want a partner for this proposed match, or if I wanna beat those bitches by myself.
Fuck outta here.
I don’t trust ‘em. For all the shit I can talk about Sienna and Kassidy, one thing I won’t really deny is that they’re cunning. I’m not gunna let shit go down like it did at Grand Rampage, which is why I’m using my Gawd Contract to announce that at Fighting Spirit, The Jaded Hearts will have a chance to nullify their Pain for Pride match if they can beat myself and my tag team partner… the former EAW World Champion…. Malcolm Jones :mjgrin:!!!
James Peters: A BLICKY BOYZ REUNION?!
Rich Russillo: Dude! I’m here for it! There’s a hell of a history between Chris Elite and Malcolm Jones, but you really can’t say they weren’t entertaining as fuck when they were working together.
Persephone: Low point.
Chris Elite: There’s not enough money in this world that would ever make me team up with Ahren again, so really Malcolm was the most logical choice. I don’t like the guy. In fact, he can suck my dick, but at least I know I got someone on my side come Fighting Spirit in case any fuckery goes down.
(“Scenario” by Pop Smoke begins to play and Malcolm Jones walks out. He doesn’t look at all impressed by the match Chris has just booked.)
James Peters: :lupe:
Rich Russillo: :lupe:
(Malcolm grabs a spare microphone before getting into the ring and looking at Chris Elite like he’s the stupidest person to ever walk the planet.)
Malcolm Jones: The fuck? Why the fuck would I ever team with you again?
Chris Elite: :mjgrin: Because I got a Gawd Contract, my guy. You ain’t got a choice. Besides, the fuck else you gunna do at Fighting Spirit? Spend the week simping over Andrea? She’s not gunna fuck you, bro. Please get that out of your head. Besides, DDDickless already snatched the EAW World Championship match up for himself. I plan on putting down his mangy little bitch for good, and I figured this type of thing would appeal to you since you can’t keep Kassidy’s name outta your mouth for longer than one promo video.
Malcolm Jones: Get off my fucking dick. I see a dumb bitch. I call a dumb bitch out. But what the fuck makes you think I wanna waste my precious fucking time on a situation like this? You created this shit for yourself, my guy, and I’m not gunna help you out of it. Gawd Contract or not.
Chris Elite: You realize you literally got no choice, right? I made the match, so you gotta be there.
Malcolm Jones: :mjgrin: That don’t mean I gotta do shit. You know I carry my weight and do the work, and the last time you were really worth a damn around here is when you were associated with me or being carried by mean to some of the best matches you ever had.
Chris Elite: 🙂 Where’s this going, beloved?
Malcolm Jones: Where it’s going is me parking my ass on the apron and refusing tags, and watching the Jaded Thots double team your greedy ass.
Chris Elite: 🙂 Is there a ‘but’ to this, beloved?
Malcolm Jones: :mjgrin: You and I both know you’re not gunna force my hand.
Chris Elite: 🙂 Is there something I can do for you in return, beloved?
Malcolm Jones: :mjgrin: :mjgrin: There sure is! If you really want me to save you from being knocked around by two over privileged silicone sugar baby cacs at Fighting Spirit, then you can wave that piece of paper of yours around and make me… the General Manager of Voltage next week :wow:!!!!
(Chris scowls, not really wanting to use his own power to help others get power. Malcolm shrugs.)
Malcolm Jones: That’s the price you gotta pay if you want me to carry you come Fighting Spirit.
Chris Elite: I made you, you fuckin’ bo-
(Chris Elite stops and takes a deep breath.)
Chris Elite: 🙂 I will go talk to Captain Charisma and work something out, beloved. Have a wonderful rest of your evening.
(“Invincible” by Pop Smoke begins to play and Chris Elite exits the ring with a final glare directed at Malcolm Jones. Jones is all smiles, knowing that he is likely about to get exactly what he wants, and oh boy. That spells trouble for the rest of the Voltage roster! :lupe:)
(Voltage fades into a promotional ad for Odyssey.)
(A promotional ad for Odyssey airs, showcasing the men and women of Showdown as they make their way towards Pain for Pride. See Minerva defend the Universal Women’s Championship against rising star, Kasey Kaos, plus much, much more! Odyssey will come to you from the
Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, South Korea, March 23rd, 2020, and only on free-per-view!)
(The camera cuts back to the Performance Center as it’s quiet for a moment, all of a sudden ‘Mob Ties’ by Drake plays up as clearly the commentators who are at the commentary booth are confused for a moment before having a epiphany of who’s coming out as their faces turn to disgust. Cepheus St. Claire makes his way out to the stage in a navy blue suit with aviator glasses on with a cocky face as he gives a bow to everyone in attendance, which is absolutely no one as he makes his way down the ramp with a strut. He has a smirk on his face as he rolls into the ring and as he does so, dusts his suit off. He walks over and beckons for a mic as he takes it and clears his throat for a moment before beginning to speak)
Cepheus St. Claire: Thank you thank you, frankly if I’ll be honest with you here that was the loudest pop I’ve gotten since the last time I’ve stepped into the ring to entertain you meddling idiots, clearly you guys missed me as much as I missed you, and that isn’t saying much because I absolutely miss NONE OF YOU!
(The last words of Cepheus echo through the Performance Center before he straightens up and clears his throat as he speaks again)
Cepheus St. Claire: But I’m sure you guys are dying to ask, “Cepheus, where were you?” Well if I’ll be blunt here I ran into a little trouble, got the police on my ass, and I served some jail time for things I’ve obviously been told to disclose. But hey, it doesn’t matter because I’m not going to tell you any of what happened and how I got there, this is the only thing that matters, and that’s the fact that I’m back on this brand we call Voltage. I’ll admit things have been a little shaken up, you guys like your blood and guts now and believe me that’s something I can easily accustom myself to as needed, but despite that I can’t go in here with such an ignorant mindset. I have some unfinished business when it comes to one… Jesse Barlow.
(Cepheus says the name of The Virtuous One with a smirk as he continues to speak once more)
Cepheus St. Claire: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again and that’s the fact I put a target on Jesse Barlow’s head since my second week ever on Voltage, now I’m sure of course that never did set well for not just him but everyone but hey! It is what it is at this point. He then proceeded to eliminate me from the 24/7 Battle Royal at Pain For Pride, then I lost to him again… it hasn’t set well believe me but one thing I can say is that I’m poised for the same mission that I’ve always had, and that’s to become a great and major player, I do plan to shake off the cobwebs, get back into the swing of things, and become better than anyone of you would ever expect. I’ve got my eyes on Jesse Abortion Barlow and of course the name of the game in this business, championship gold. And I will make sure… that I fulfill my destiny once and for all.
(Cepheus drops his mic and turns around as ‘Mob Ties’ plays up. As soon as he does so the camera cuts to the backstage area where it shows Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin watching closely and the words that Cepheus had to say. Jesse for a moment continues to watch before turning away from the monitor, he is not happy at all to see Cepheus and shakes his head as he beckons Hannah to follow him away from the camera frame as Voltage cuts to elsewhere.)
(We open to another part of the Performance Center. Sarah Price, who was cheated out of a victory earlier tonight thanks to Dr. Bethany Blue, is seen in the medical area. Thankfully, Dr. Blue is not there at the moment, and Sarah is being seen by Dr. Winston Brett. Dr. Brett is checking out the damage done to Sarah’s back thanks to the fact she got beaten with a stethoscope, and Sarah cringes as he touches an alcohol soaked pad to some of the bloody welts.)
Dr. Winston Brett: I know it stings, but I’m just going to clean these broken welts up quickly and bandage them. They won’t leave any scars.
Sarah Price: I’m not worried about whether or not I have a scar or two. I’m a professional wrestler, not a model. I’m just frustrated.
Dr. Winston Brett: I’m not a therapist, but if you want to vent, I’m here to listen.
(Dr. Brett had worked for EAW for a number of years, and was perhaps most known for being blackmailed by Kassidy Heart many, many moons ago. Dr. Brett is also the doctor who had advised ‘The Mauler’ that her days in the ring were numbered due to how easily she seemed to get concussions.)
Sarah Price: I don’t like to come across as someone who is a complainer. Things are always unpredictable on Voltage, and after being here for almost a full season, you would think that I’m used to it by now.
Dr. Winston Brett: There’s certainly never a dull moment around here, Voltage more so than any other brand.
(Sarah can’t help but frown. Clearly everything that’s been happening in recent weeks is starting to take its toll on her. A sigh escapes her lips and she winces as Dr. Brett starts to bandage up her war wounds.)
Sarah Price: I don’t want to come across as a Debbie Downer, but I’m starting to feel like I’m never, ever going to get the opportunity to truly prove myself. I don’t want to take the stance that a ‘win is a win’, but I might not have any other choice. Tonight I was supposed to beat Bethany and show everyone that I’m ready to head to Gateway to Glory and deal Darcy’s ego the most devastating loss of her career, but that didn’t happen. Bethany cheated her way to a win, and it makes me angry. Darcy is going to try and continue with her stupid lessons now. I don’t need her help to know I can give her a good match. In fact, I know I can give her a great match, but I really can’t expect her to believe that. This stinks. This really stinks.
(The sound of someone clearly their throat is heard, and that draws Sarah’s attention to the left. Dr. Brett looks a little concerned as both members of The Unique Ones, Shawn Sturgis and Komatsu Ogawa, step into the frame. Komatsu bares his teeth at Dr. Brett, and Dr. Brett takes his leave, and Sarah immediately slides off the examination table and looks up at both men.)
Sarah Price: What do you want?
(Sturgis and Ogawa look at one another and smirk.)
Komatsu Ogawa: Oh nothing. We were just making our way towards the ring area due to Sturgis’ match coming up, and were both taken aback by your sheer lack of confidence.
Shawn Sturgis: It’s certainly unbecoming especially when everything Dr. Blue said about you this week is true.
Sarah Price: I beg your pardon?
(Ogawa moves to the left of Sarah, while Sturgis stands directly in front of her. They have blocked the path to the exit, which Sarah takes note of. She has a history with both of them, especially Ogawa, who was pretty much the reason Sarah came to be with Sierra.)
Shawn Sturgis: Lady luck might not be on your side, but since day one this company has looked at you and seen dollar signs. They see a pretty little face with a bubbly personality, who refuses to be anything other than a role model for the younger audience and they know they can market you, exploit you, and use you to make millions of dollars for this company. Your partner’s ankle hadn’t even been evaluated before the powers-that-be released the Fighting Spirit promotional material with your face splashed across it alongside our golden girl of a world champion. The brass has big plans for you, and everyone can see that other than you.
Komatsu Ogawa: Or… have you just been putting on an act this entire time?
(The Unique Ones look at one another and smirk, before turning their attention back towards Sarah. Sarah is immediately on the defensive, not sure where this situation is going between the three of them.)
Sarah Price: Being on a poster means absolutely nothing to me unless it makes one of my fans smile and think that someday they could be on a poster too. I don’t believe at all it means this place has plans for me. Why would they? I’m not exactly setting the world on fire. Besides, Shawn, with all due respect, you have your face on the Fighting Spirit marketing material as well.
Shawn Sturgis: So I do. So I do. But here’s the thing, Guardian Angel. No one has ever looked at me and said that I was a ‘GOAT in the making.’ You can downplay the name all you want, joking about how Elitists such as Landerson and TNT get called the same, but even you aren’t naive enough to believe that people are grouping you into a category with the likes of them. This place is desperately searching for their next golden girl. They want a new Andrea Valentine. They want another Kassidy Heart. They want another Sienna Jade. They want another marginally talented, but pretty young female to use in order to sell tickets and use for sponsor deals and commercials. I FORCED this company to notice me back at King of Elite when I nearly dethroned Justin Windgate for the New Breed Championship. That match put me on another level, and it was a level that no one could deny, although I’m sure they wanted too. Since then I’ve gone to push our so-called leader, Rex McAllister, to his limits, and I made a hell of a mark in the Grand Rampage match itself. I have earned the right to be on a silly piece of artwork.
(Sarah rolls her eyes.)
Sarah Price: Okay. Congratulations, I’m happy for you. I’m not sure what any of that has to do with me, though.
Komatsu Ogawa: It has plenty to do with you, actually. The Unique Ones are bored. We don’t have any desire to prolong this pointless feud with The Grand Athletes especially when it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere. Fire and Ice will be heading to Gateway to Glory to take their shot at dethroning Drizzy and Vizzy for the Unified Tag Team Championships, and as we found out earlier tonight, both of them will be busy during Fighting Spirit.
Sarah Price: If you’re trying to challenge me to a tag team match….
Shawn Sturgis: What if we are?
Sarah Price: :skip: Sierra is injured. She won’t be able to compete again until Pain for Pride.
Komatsu Ogawa: Then perhaps you should put yourself in the shoes of Malcolm Jones, and face the two of us in a handicap match.
(Sarah goes to reply, but Shawn places his fingers across her lips.)
Shawn Sturgis: You don’t have to answer now. Ogawa and I are very patient people and we’re willing to give you time to find a suitable replacement for Sierra. But at Fighting Spirit, we expect to see you on the opposite side of the ring from us, with or without a partner.
(Sturgis winks at Sarah, before motioning to Ogawa it’s time to leave. The Unique Ones leer at their piece of prey before heading out of the picture. Sarah wraps her arms around her body, and shakes her head.)
Sarah Price: There is no way I’m going to let them bully me, even if I have to face them in a handicap match.
(Sarah squares her shoulders and heads out, and Voltage fades back to the ringside area.)
(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the center of the ring)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL!!!
(‘Gangsta’ by New Years Day plays up as Ms. Extreme struts her way out to the stage with a smirk. There’s no sense of remorse or sadness on her face as her face is just simply plastered with the same patented confidence that she’s had as she makes her way down the ramp and heading towards the ring looking around the empty Performance Center still keeping a smirk on her face)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Calabasas, California… weighing in at 135 pounds… THE RED QUEEN… MS. EXTREME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: It’s clear we don’t need to talk about what happened at King Of Elite or rather the thought process after everything went down about it. But if there’s need to sum it up for Ms. Extreme, it’s clear she’s not mad about Consuela Rose Ava taking the Interwire Championship away from her well anymore to say the very least, she’s set new goals for herself and now I’m sure she’s going to set out and accomplish them starting tonight.
James Peters: If there’s one thing we’ve happened to learn over the course of time is that Ms. Extreme is persistent in her acts. It’s clear that she’s going to beat the shit out of anyone that stands in the way of that goal no matter who it seems to be or no matter how close she holds them to what’s left of her heart. Either way, one thing we know if we’re going to push everything else out of the way, she’s going to put up one hell of a fight tonight.
Persephone: Ugh, you know there’s a reason that red haired adopted freak lost her title, she wasn’t ready! Don’t you know? Don’t you realize? The result isn’t going to change and she’s still going to be the freakshow fucking leprachaun she is, give me a break already fucktards.
(Ms. Extreme makes her way up the steel steps as she stands on the apron for a moment before entering the ring. She puts a foot on the middle rope and boosts herself up as she spreads her arms out before jumping off and beginning to head to her corner to begin to warm up as ‘Gangsta’ fades out. ‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons plays up as Terry Chambers makes his way out to the stage. He has a stern look on his face heading into this matchup as he swiftly then begins to make his way down the ramp and head towards the ring)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent… from Detroit, Michigan… weighing in at 287 pounds… THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE… TERRY CHAMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for Terry Chambers I don’t think he should be disappointed in any way heading into this match from his showing specifically in the Grand Rampage match at Grand Rampage. He made an excellent showing and made his mark and I think he should honestly be proud of it, and believe me that isn’t saying he isn’t who knows. But all I know for sure is that he’s going to make sure that he did what he couldn’t do at Grand Rampage tonight, and that’s to win.
James Peters: Terry has brought a wave of momentum from Grand Rampage into this match and I’m sure his performance is going to be no different entering in here, he’s going to bring the fight and he’s going to prove that he wants what his opponent on the other side of him wants much more than them.
Persephone: I’m sure all that the pot of gold on the other side of him needs to do is run in circles and force him to chase after her till he collapses cause his heart drops into the abysmal of a stomach he has, when I mean that he isn’t fit to be a champion, he isn’t literally FIT enough. Losing weight my fucking ass.
(Terry Chambers makes his way to the bottom of the ramp as he rolls into the ring and walks briskly to the center of the ring as he raises one arm in the air before putting it back down to the ground and heading to his corner as he leans against it for a moment before beginning to warm up as well as ‘Natural’ fades out and the Ref signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as this match is underway now and both competitors are quickly engaging one another here! Both of them are locking up now as despite the weight advantage that Terry possesses, Ms. Extreme is able to slowly back up Terry to the corner. Terry quickly fighting back though as he goes around Ms. Extreme, TERRY SLAMS MS. EXTREME DOWN TO THE GROUND!
James Peters: Terry quickly transitioning it as he brings Ms. Extreme up to a knee and locks in a headlock on her! Ms. Extreme is trying to reach for some air as Terry has that hold locked in tight! Ms. Extreme managing to get up and push herself up slowly with strength, SHE SLAMS TERRY INTO THE CORNER! Terry is forced to loosen the hold as it gives Ms. Extreme some wiggle room at this moment, MS. EXTREME WITH A BACK ELBOW RIGHT TO THE NOSE OF TERRY AS SHE QUICKLY BACKS OFF BEFORE TERRY CAN DO ANYTHING!
Persephone: Ms. Whatever running at Cardiac Attack as she looks to loosely and sadly attack her, but Heart Attack lifts her up and places her on the ground, what the fuck is that move called, a uranage? Ok, Heart Attack quickly lifting Ms. Leprechaun up off her feet as he places her on his shoulders, and slams her to the ground again with like a samoan drop or something yeah I am totally so interested in this.
Rich Russillo: I’m sorry for intervening kween but couldn’t you call them by their real names.
Rich Russillo: Ok! Ms. Extreme slowly pulling herself up to her feet as Terry grabs her by the head and pulls her up with him. Ms. Extreme sending shots right to the gut of Terry, BUT TERRY SLAMS HIS FIST DOWN RIGHT ON THE BACK OF MS. EXTREME! Terry runs to the ropes as he quickly rebounds, BUT MS. EXTREME CLOCKS HIM WITH A FOREARM! Ms. Extreme quickly runs to the opposite side and rebounds off the ropes, BUT TERRY HITTING MS. EXTREME WITH A FOREARM BACK AS BOTH OF THEM COLLAPSE DOWN TO A KNEE!
James Peters: Now both of them are beginning to trade punches quickly, MS. EXTREME! TERRY! MS. EXTREME! TERRY! MS. EXTREME! MS. EXTREME WITH ANOTHER BIG ELBOW RIGHT TO THE HEAD OF TERRY ABSOLUTELY STUNNING HIM! But look at Terry now as he rips off the elbow pad that he has on his right shoulder, AND HE SLAMS THAT BARE, SHARP ELBOW RIGHT INTO THE NOSE OF MS. EXTREME! WE’RE JUST BARELY INTO THE BEGINNING OF THE MATCH AND LOOK AT THE BLOOD POURING OUT OF THE LEFT NOSTRIL OF MS. EXTREME!
Persephone: You guys are acting like you haven’t seen blood before, fucking pussies look at what brand you’re on. Ms. Extreme is stunned as Terry brings her up to her feet and up onto his shoulders once more, Terry slamming Ms. Extreme right into the turnbuckle as clearly as I’ve said before, she absolutely sucks at what she does.
Rich Russillo: Okie. Ms. Extreme crumbles down to a sitting position as Terry steps back and begins to run forward, TERRY SLAMMING HIS KNEE RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF MS. EXTREME! Terry grabbing Ms. Extreme by the arm as he pulls her up, TERRY WITH A BODY SLAM- BUT MS. EXTREME REVERSES OUT OF IT JUST IN TIME AS SHE KICKS TERRY IN THE GUT! SHE RUNS TO THE ROPES AND BACK, KICK RIGHT TO THE FACE- BUT TERRY DROPS DOWN TO ALL FOURS CAUSING MX. EXTREME TO TRIP AND FALL TO THE GROUND!
James Peters: Terry quickly taking advantage as he grabs Ms. Extreme once more and pulls her up to her feet! MS. EXTREME WITH A BACK ELBOW RIGHT TO THE NOSE OF TERRY THOUGH ONCE MORE SENDING HIM BACK! MS. EXTREME RUNNING FORWARD AND LEAPING AT TERRY, TERRY WITH A URANAGE- NO! MS. EXTREME WITH ANOTHER ELBOW YET RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF TERRY’S HEAD SENDING HIM DOWN TO A KNEE! MS. EXTREME QUICKLY GRABS TERRY, MS. EXTREME WITH A SNAP DDT IMPALING TERRY DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Persephone: Here we go as Ms. Extreme climbs up to the top rope and leaps forward as Terry manages to bring his 600 pound life ass self up to his feet, Ms. Extreme takes him down, what a tall feat to take such a big, big man down :wow:. Anyways, Terry fuckboy Chambers is getting up to his feet as Ms. Extreme is already up, Ms. Extreme connects with one of those snap suplex shit things, god that sucked.
Rich Russillo: Terry is dazed once more as he looks like a deer in the headlights, Ms. Extreme bringing Terry up to his feet. MS. EXTREME GOING FOR THE TWIST OF FATE- BUT TERRY MANAGES TO SPIN OUT OF IT AND CHOP THE HAND OF MS. EXTREME SENDING HER BACK! MS. EXTREME RUNS FORWARD AS TERRY IS READY FOR HER, TERRY CONNECTS WITH A QUICK POWERSLAM AS MS. EXTREME IS ROCKED AND TAKEN DOWN BY IT ONCE MORE!
James Peters: Terry quickly bringing Ms. Extreme up and irish whipping her into the corner as he quickly comes forward, C.S.S. ENZUIGIRI! BUT MS. EXTREME BARELY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY OF THE RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE! SHE KICKS TERRY RIGHT IN THE GUT AS SHE PULLS HER IN! MS. EXTREME FINALLY CONNECTING WITH A BIG TWIST OF FATE! TERRY IS DOWN, THIS IS MS. EXTREME’S CHANCE AS SHE QUICKLY LEAPS FORWARD AND GOES FOR THE PIN!
Persephone: FUCK! Terry manages to power out, Ms. Extreme is obviously frustrated but she’s not letting that take her over as she waits for him to get up to his feet as it’s obvious her wish is being granted as Terry is slowly getting up to his feet. Seated Fujiwara Armbar, or Blue Handed whatever the fuck she calls it, but nope as Terry quickly slips out and grabs her, Terry with that sit-out powerbomb as he slams Ms. Extreme down to the ground.
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is not giving in though as she quickly grabs a hold of the ropes trying to get out of the path of carnage that Terry has put her through and fast. Ms. Extreme getting up to her feet as Terry turns her around quickly, BUT MS. EXTREME RESPONDING WITH A BARRAGE OF PUNCHES SENDING TERRY BACK! MS. EXTREME WITH A LARIAT AS TERRY STAYS UPRIGHT YET MS. EXTREME RUNS FORWARDS THE ROPES! MS. EXTREME SENDING KNEE RIGHT TO THE GUT OF TERRY! MS. EXTREME QUICKLY HOPPING UP ONTO THE TOP ROPE AS TERRY GETS TO HIS FEET NOT KNOWING WHERE HE IS! SHE LEAPS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A METEORA! TERRY IS DOWN AS IN A RUSH MS. EXTREME LEAPS FORWARD AND GOES FOR THE PIN, THIS MIGHT BE IT AT THIS MOMENT!
James Peters: TERRY POWERS OUT AGAIN! Ms. Extreme could not be more shocked, they pulled out absolutely everything in their arsenal and even then it wasn’t enough to take a single one of them down to the ground! Ms. Extreme is frustrated as she begins to climb up to the top rope and wait for Terry! BUT TERRY MEETING UP WITH MS. EXTREME! TERRY QUICKLY CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE AS HE QUICKLY GRABS HER! BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX! WHAT?! MS. EXTREME LANDS ON HER FEET AS SHE RUNS FORWARD AT TERRY, MS. EXTREME WITH A KNEE RIGHT TO HIS FACE- BUT TERRY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! BOTH OF THEM ARE GOING HAM ON ONE ANOTHER! TERRY GOING FOR A LARIAT! BUT MS. EXTREME STAYS UP, MS. EXTREME WITH A DROPKICK, BUT TERRY HOLDS HIS GROUND! BOTH OF THEM ARE RAMMING PUNCHES AT EACH OTHER! TERRY WITH A BACKFIST, BUT MS. EXTREME WITH A HEADBUTT! BOTH OF THEM COLLAPSE TO THE GROUND, BUT WAIT! TERRY COLLAPSING ONTO A PIN ATTEMPT! THIS ISN’T THE WAY MS. EXTREME WANTED IT TO GO BUT TERRY JUST FELL RIGHT IN PLACE DESPITE MS. EXTREME CONNECTING WITH THE HEADBUTT! PIN ATTEMPT!
Persephone: GODDAMMIT A KICKOUT! Terry is in shock now as he can barely pull himself up now as he goes into position as Ms. Extreme follows. The fact that their recovery time is so quick is shocking yet saddening because this is a match I want to end as fast as possible since both of them have more sucky qualities than redeeming ones.
Rich Russillo: BOTH OF THEM ARE SWINGING AT EACHOTHER LIKE IT’S A BOXING MATCH! FIST AFTER FIST RAMMING INTO EACH OTHER BUT TERRY HAS THE ADVANTAGE HERE! MS. EXTREME FEELING OVERWHELMED AS TERRY RAMS PUNCHES RIGHT INTO HER GUT! MS. EXTREME SWINGING! WHAT?! WHAT?!
James Peters: LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS! REAR NAKED CHOKE LOCKED IN AS TERRY QUICKLY TAKES MS. EXTREME DOWN TO THE GROUND! MS. EXTREME IS TRYING HER BEST TO ESCAPE BUT AFTER THEY’VE BOTH BEEN THROUGH IT’S BEEN A LOT! SHE’S REFUSING TO TAP AS IT’S CLEAR SHE DOES NOT WANT TO GIVE IT UP! AT THIS POINT IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE A CHOICE HERE! MS. EXTREME PASSES OUT, TERRY WINS!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Natural’ plays up as Terry Chambers collapses to the ground next to Ms. Extreme. It takes a while for him to get up as finally the Ref helps him up to his feet as he raises his hand in victory and Terry grabs his gut in pain. He leans against the ropes for leverage as he looks at Ms. Extreme on the ground who is passed out, she gave him a run for his money but in the end it wasn’t enough as Terry has managed to win this bout)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… TERRY CHAMBERS!!!!!!!!!
Persephone: I will admit to you guys this match wasn’t…. As horrible as it should’ve been, but it was still horrible don’t get me wrong about it.
Rich Russillo: :wow: What a match that we’ve just witnessed here. Both Terry and Ms. Extreme absolutely killed one another as none of them held anything back against one another, at the end of the day we have to admit Terry did what he said no matter the obstacle, and that’s beating Ms. Extreme, and coming out with the win.
James Peters: I will say they did try to one up each other multiple times and give both an absolute fight and even though she lost Camille has nothing to be worried about, but other than that all I have to say is congratulations Terry!
(The last shot is of Ms. Extreme being checked on by the Ref as she looks to the ramp and sees Terry Chambers, he has a smirk on his face as he raises his hand in victory and turns around and begins to walk to the backstage area as Voltage fades out to commercial.)
(Commercial break for Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion featuring Gavin Kirkland.)
(Voltage fades back and cuts to the ringside area.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL!
( “Lonely Day” by System Of A Down blasts through the speakers to the suppressed stillness of the EAW Performance Centre. Shawn Sturgis jerks the curtain and steps onto the stage, juxtaposed by his confidant, Komatsu Ogawa.
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Riverside, California, weighing in at 180 pounds… SHAAAAWWWWWNNNNNNN STUUUURRRRRRRRRGIIIIIISSSSSS!!
James Peters: Shawn Sturgis, flanked by the oh-so mercurial component of ‘The Unique Ones’, Komatsu Ogawa, looks to continue with his winning ways as he is fresh off a strenuous triumph over The Grand Athlete’s Mark Macias. The Unique Ones recently ventured on a two-man hunt for competition and spoiling the restoration of the Jack Ripley institution may put them in the eyes of the type of competition they seek.
Persephone: We’ve already proven that Shawn Burgess is a loser and the Japanese strong-style bootleg version of Rexy Sexy makes this wrist-cutting turkey far more repulsive. Why is our next big marquee named ‘Fighting Spirit’ when this man is a thirteen-year-old Paramore goth stuck in a grown man’s body. I mean, does this guy even have a life!?!?
( Donned with his black-and-white warpaint, ‘The Unique Ones’ hikes towards the squared circle. He shoots onto the top turnbuckle, rallying up the fans watching from home and adding life to the empty venue. )
( “BxMxC” by BABYMETAL saturates the performance center with sound as Jack Ripley treks with purpose onto the stage. Appearing completely prepared and ready for his return, he surveys the battlefield before marching down towards the ring. )
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing in at 202 pounds… THE “STRAIGHT SHOOTER”, JAAAAACCCCCCKKKKk RIPPPPPPLEEEEEYYYYY!!!!
James Peters: It’s been five long months since the last time we’ve seen Jack Ripley compete in singles action, so allow me to welcome him back! The “Rip Daddy” has com-
Persephone: SILENCE! There’s a legitimate reason why Ripley has been away from the land of Elite. One, because his knee is made out of glass and he can’t keep up with my Rexy’s brand. In the time he’s been gone, the ratings never immobilized or declined, the overall quality has improved, and my husband got announced into the Hall Of Fame. If you ask me, Ripley is jealous of this induction, but to be honest, who isn’t jealous of my McKing?
Rich Russillo: Well, Persy, to a certain extent there’s a bit of truth to that theory seeing as Ripley was robbed in his last singles confrontation with Rex McAllister, but I believe his loss to “The Rex Master” isn’t what’s circulating in his mind. What’s been on his mind lately is to re-establish and perhaps re-introduce his presence on the yellow brand and earn his position in the championship conversation. However, with this being his first match back after a hiatus, Ripley needs this notch under his belt tonight and stockpile momentum before his unsanctioned bout against Charlie Marr at Fighting Spirit.
James Peters: As I was rudely interrupted. Allow me to say the “Ri-
Rich Russillo: By the way, Persephone, you should reroute your energy on Rex McAllister to the man I know has truly been on your mind, and that man is sitting to your left. :mjlit:
Persephone: Ugh, get away from me you freak.
( DING! DING! DING! )
James Peters: Jack Ripley versus Shawn Sturgis is now officially underway now as both individuals promptly engage in a collar-and-elbow tie-up. Ripley quickly grabs his wrist and twists around for a wrist-lock. Sturgis maneuvers his body position and turns around. He places ‘Straight Shooter’ into a headlock as Ripley is fast to use his foot to press down onto the back of his knee. It brings ‘The Fresh Prince of Mid-Air’ one knee before Ripley uses his power to Irish whip him into the ropes.
Rich Russillo: Ripley asserts his dominance with a shoulder block that takes down Sturgis. Sturgis immediately winds back up to his feet but gets earthed with another shoulder block. Ripley rebounds off the ropes, jumps over Sturgis, and telegraphs a leapfrog, but Sturgis manages to lift himself up in the air and bring Ripley down into a sunset roll.
Persephone: Ripley escapes out of that predicament, continuing this match that has been dragging for a tiring thirty minutes.
James Peters: The bell rang like two minutes ago. :skip:
Rich Russillo: Both elitists rise up to their feet. Ripley backs into the corner as Sturgis runs into him. He jumps up, captures his waist and pulls him down. Sturgis rolls into his knees before Ripley rolls into the canvas and CLOCKS HIM WITH A KICK!! NO!! Sturgis ducked the roll-up head kick, got up to his feet and plucked the ‘Straight Shooter’ up for a deadlift release german suplex!
James Peters: The ‘Rip Daddy’ however, fights back with huge back elbows to the face. He is able to escape the waist lock before running into the ropes. Sturgis holds onto the edge of his tights, but Ripley back kicks his hands away and spins around for a REVITALIZING PUNCH TO THE FACE! I believe I may have seen some spit or perhaps, a tooth fly out of the ‘Fresh Prince of Mid-Air’.
Persephone: This is the battle of the glass jaw and glass knee as Ripley rebounds off the ropes. Sturgis circles around the waist, advancing for another german suplex, but Ripley sprints into the corner and clings onto the ropes as Sturgis rolls back into the middle of the ring. Ripley charges in for a lariat. Sturgis ducks the arm, springboards and spins off the middle rope! AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A SPRINGBOARD ARM DRAG.
Rich Russillo: A beautiful arm drag by Sturgis as he now runs into Ripley in the corner. CORNER BACK ELBOW! RIPLEY GRABS HIS WAIST IN MID-AIR AND CARRIES HIM INTO THE CENTER! BACK SUPLEX!! NO!! STURGIS FLIPS OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND ONTO HIS FEET! RIPLEY TURNS HIS HEAD AROUND TO THE SIGHT OF STURGIS CHARGING IN! SHOTGUN DROPKICK! Ripley grabs his legs in mid-air, shifts Sturgis’ body and pins him down! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
James Peters: RIPLEY POWERS OUT! Ripley powering out in the nick of time while both individuals get back up to their feet. Sturgis gets ahold of Ripley’s tights and advances for a vertical suplex. Sturgis hooks his leg and TANGLES HIM DOWN INTO AN INSIDE CRADLE!
Persephone: RIPLEY ESCAPES! The referee needs to count faster as STURGIS SIDESTEPS THE INBOUND RIPLEY AND SENDS HIM FALTERING THROUGH THE ROPES. THE ‘STALE PRINCE OF MID-AIR’ NOW RUNS THE ROPES AND LOOKS FOR AN AERIAL MANEUVER. BUT RIPLEY APPEARS AND SHOOTS THROUGH THE ROPES! SLINGSHOT SPEAR!!
Rich Russillo: BUT STURGIS CATCHES RIPLEY INTO A GROUNDED HEADLOCK!! A unique counter from one-half of ‘The Unique Ones’ as the ‘Fresh Prince Of Mid-Air’ immediately puts the fast-paced exchanges to a grinding halt with an old-fashioned headlock. Ripley is able to fasten grounded leg scissors onto Sturgis which forces Sturgis to relinquish the headlock. Sturgis rolls around, trying to find the right footing before twisting his body and ESCAPES WITH A HEADSPRING!
James Peters: Look at the amazing athletic versatility of ‘The Fresh Prince Of Mid-Air’!
Persephone: Pfft. McAllister could do a thousand of those headsprings simultaneously in five minutes! AND RIPLEY KICKS HIS LEGS, DROPPING HIM FLAT ONTO HIS STUPID FACE AND APPLYING A CROSSFACE ONTO STURGIS!!
James Peters: Whose side are you on?
Persephone: I’m on no one’s side; I just want the end of this slumber match to come sooner.
James Peters: Well I- STURGIS TILTS HIM OVER AND PINS HIS SHOULDERS DOWN!
Rich Russillo: Sturgis escapes the hold! RIPLEY CLOCKS HIM WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! NO! STURGIS CATCHES AND CLENCHES HIS FOOT TIGHT AND TWISTS IT FOR AN ANKLE LOCK!! A standing ankle lock is cinched in on ‘Rip Daddy’ as Ripley hops with one leg towards the ropes.
Persephone: YES HE TAPS!
James Peters: NOPE! Ripley grabs the top rope for a rope break which prompts for the official to distance him between Sturgis. Sturgis complies with the referee’s orders as RIPLEY USES THE CONVERSATION TO SNEAK IN A SUPERKICK!! BUT STURGIS GRABS HIS FOOT AND PUTS HIM RIGHT BACK INTO THE ANKLE LOCK!
Rich Russillo: Sturgis saw the superkick coming from a mile away and Ripley is quickly regretting from advancing with the kick. Ripley no longer is standing as he talons his way through the canvas and towards the ropes. Sturgis continues to manipulate the ankle before Ripley twists inside, rolls and SENDS STURGIS THROUGH THE ROPES.
Persephone: Sturgis falls hard onto the outside floor as RIPLEY NOW RUNS THE ROPES AND GOES AIRBORNE!! TOPPEEEEEE SUIIIIIIICIDDDAAA!! RIPLEY BRINGS STURGIS BACK INTO THE RING AND CLIMBS ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! AND HE FLATTENS STURGIS WITH A TOP ROPE METEORA!! COVER!!
James Peters: KICK-OUT! Sturgis kicks out before Ripley pulls him up to his feet with a front face lock. He maintains the hold while he runs into the ropes and steps off them! AND SPIKES HIM WITH A TORNADO DDT! NO!! STURGIS SHRUGS HIM OFF HIS SHOULDERS. RIPLEY COMES OFF THE ROPES, STURGIS GROUNDS HIM WITH A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN AND HOLDS HIM DOWN WITH A SPLIT-LEG PIN!
Rich Russillo: KICK-OUT! Ripley holds onto Sturgis while he bridges off the ground and onto his feet. He turns Sturgis around and attempts to pull him down for a backslide pin! But Sturgis uses his given momentum to flip over his shoulders, onto his feet and NAIL THE ‘STRAIGHT SHOOTER’ with a step-up enziguri! Jack Ripley is rocked as Sturgis now steps on the pedal and springboards off the ropes! SPRINGBOARD BACK ELBOW!! RIPLEY DRILLS HIM WITH A DOUBLE KNEE BACKSTABBER IN MID-AIR!! HE NOW PULLS HIM UP AND DROPS HIM WITH A TORNADO DDT!! COVER!!
Persephone: STURGIS GETS HIS SHOULDER UP! A devastating counter by Ripley as he now corners him into the turnbuckles and riddles him with a plethora of knife-edge chops. Ripley continues to pound his chest in the corner before he Irish whip him into the opposite corner. He follows from behind, but Sturgis saw it coming as he leans forward and lifts Ripley over the top rope. Ripley calibrates on the apron while Sturgis runs the ropes and back!
James Peters: RIPLEY LAUNCHES THROUGH THE ROPES AND SPLITS STURGIS IN HALF WITH A SLINGSHOT SPEAR! HE HOVERS OVER FOR THE LATERAL PRESS!
ONE… TWO… T-
Rich Russillo: SHAWN STURGIS GETS HIS SHOULDER UP AT TWO! Ripley immediately locks Ripley into a grounded headlock and decelerates the pace of this match so-far. Sturgis quickly begins to fight out of it, resisting it as he gets up to his feet. Sturgis sends shots to the body, but Ripley sticks a knee into the midsection and tightens the headlock.
James Peters: Ripley continues to implement the common headlock as Sturgis now begins to get a hold of second wind. Sturgis uses his free hand to wrap around his waist and perhaps, HOIST HIM UP!?!?! BUT RIPLEY RAINS DOWN HIS KNUCKLES ONTO THE CROWN OF HIS HEAD! That punch sends Sturgis collapsing to the canvas as Ripley has a grounded headlock now fully sunk in!
Persephone: What is this! Shawn Sturgis is about to fall asleep to a simple headlock. Clearly this man lacks the ‘Fighting Spirit’ this company requires as he can’t even withstand a damn headlock!
Rich Russillo: But look! Sturgis looks to go third times the charm as he is back onto his feet and lights him up with body shots. Ripley quickly relinquishes the lock to sneak in a knee smash, but Sturgis sidesteps the knee and DRIVES HIS FOOT INTO THE BACK OF HIS LEFT KNEE! Ripley screeched loudly in pain as Sturgis’ back heel kicked the same knee that kept him out of competition for nearly half a year!
James Peters: Sturgis may have found a discrepancy that could lead him into victory as he walks over and grabs him by the left knee! BUT RIPLEY IMMEDIATELY USES HIS OTHER FOOT TO NAIL HIM WITH A DEVASTATING ROUNDHOUSE KICK! Ripley smacks his left knee to get the blood flowing while Sturgis reels into the corner. RIPLEY CHARGES IN!
Persephone: STURGIS SIDESTEPS AND RIPLEY GOES INTO THE CORNER INSTEAD! Ripley stops himself before colliding into the corner as STURGIS TURNS AROUND AND CHARGES IN! RIPLEY GETS HIS FOOT UP IN THE ELEVENTH HOUR, BUT STURGIS GRABS AND PLACES HIS LEFT FOOT ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE AND DRIVES HIS FOOT DOWN ONTO THE KNEE!!
Rich Russillo: Ripley scrambling into the corner, clutching his left knee as Sturgis has him where he wants him! He mounts himself onto the top turnbuckle and scans the horizon! HE JUMPS OFF! TOP ROPE TORNADO FLATLINER!! NO!! RIPLEY MANAGES TO PUT HIM RIGHT INTO A GROUNDED HEADLOCK!!
James Peters: This match has been chock-full of headlock exchanges as RIPLEY TRANSITIONS INTO A GROUNDED REVERSE CHIN LOCK! Ripley pulling back his head as you can tell that the previous attacks on the knee have paid Sturgis a dividend. He is using his right leg to press on the canvas for added leverage while he preserves the left leg.
Persephone: Sturgis is able to get full footing as Ripley maintains the reverse chin lock. He tries to complete another raid of body shots, but RIPLEY THROWS HIM DOWN WITH A REVERSE JUDO TAKEDOWN AND PUTS HIM BACK INTO A GROUNDED SUBMISSION! Blood is starting to creep out of the mouth of Sturgis! When will this kid just give up?!!
Rich Russillo: The resilience, heart, soul, grit, and determination of Shawn Sturgis shall not be underestimated because he is not human! Sturgis has no fear and as of right now, he has no intention of giving up to the technical juggernaut that is Jack Ripley! Sturgis now attempts to get his footing as it’s nearly impossible to drag his way to the ropes. Ripley tries to resist, but Sturgis continues to fight out of the hold!
James Peters: Repeated body shots to the ribs from Sturgis, but it doesn’t phase him! Sturgis now starting to fade as Ripley now transitions the reverse chin lock into a sleeper hold! BUT STURGIS QUICKLY INTERCEPTS THE TRANSITION AND SHOCKS RIPLEY’S SYSTEM WITH A TEARDROP SUPLEX!
Persephone: A suplex of desperation as Sturgis gasps for oxygen and recalibrates himself after being limited to oxygen for a long time. He uses the ropes to aid himself up to his feet as Ripley turns around. STURGIS WITH THREE OPEN-HANDED CHOPS TO THE CHEST, LIGHTING HIM UP AS RIPLEY REELS INTO THE CORNER!
Rich Russillo: STURGIS LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND SQUASHES HIM INTO THE CORNER WITH A BACK ELBOW!! HE THEN PROCEEDS TO SPRINGBOARD OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE AND FOLLOW IT UP WITH ANOTHER BACK ELBOW!! ‘The Fresh Prince Of Mid-Air” now climbs to the top turnbuckle! HERE HE GOES!! TOP-ROPE ELBOW DROP!! HE DRILLS AN ELBOW INTO THE HEART AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER!
ONE… TWO…. TH-
James Peters: RIPLEY GETS HIS SHOULDER UP! Sturgis overwhelmed Ripley with a trifecta of elbow maneuvers, but it wasn’t enough to spoil his in-ring singles return. Sturgis pulls Ripley up and connects with a spinning heel kick to the chest. He rebounds off the corner turnbuckles and back into Ripley! HE HOPS OVER FOR THE SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB!!
Persephone: RIPLEY MANAGES TO HOLD ONTO THE SEVEN ATTEMPT AND DRILLS HIM DOWN WITH A SUNSET DRIVER!! HE CRADLES HIM FOR THE WIN!
ONE…. TWO… TH-
Rich Russillo: STURGIS POWERS OUT! Ripley walks with difficulty towards Sturgis and clocks him with an emphatic roundhouse kick that sends him through the ropes. Sturgis is staggered onto the apron as Ripley grips the top rope with both hands! He’s possibly going for a slingshot DDT onto the apron as he jumps up for the rope-assisted enziguri! STURGIS GRABS HIS FOOT AND TWISTS HIS LEG WITH A DRAGON SCREW!! RIPLEY COLLAPSES ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR WITH PAIN AS STURGIS NOW STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES!
James Peters: STURGIS SOARS THROUGH THE ROPES AND FLATTENS RIPLEY ON THE OUTSIDE WITH A SEEKING MISSILE TOPE SUICIDA! STURGIS ACCOMPLISHED A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF VELOCITY ON THAT SUICIDE DIVE AS HE NOW INSERTS RIPLEY BACK INTO THE SQUARED CIRCLE. HE SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE!! AND LANDS A LEG DROP ACROSS THE SUPINE JACK RIPLEY! COVER!
ONE… TWO… THRE-
Persephone: KICK-OUT! Sturgis was on the verge of defeating Ripley, but Ripley continued to stay in this match. Sturgis now connects with a spinning heel kick to the midsection and turns around! SEVEN! NO!! RIPLEY CONNECTS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK IN MID-AIR!!! STURGIS FALTERS INTO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING AS RIPLEY GOES INTO THE CORNER! HE PULLS DOWN HIS LEFT KNEE PAD, A QUESTIONABLE DECISION AS HE NOW GOES FOR THE RUNNING KNEE!! DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME!!!
Rich Russillo: STURGIS LEAPS INTO RIPLEY WITH A WHEELBARROW AND BRINGS HIM DOWN INTO AN INVERTED LEGLOCK CLOVERLEAF! IT’S LOCKED IN AS RIPLEY SCREAMS IN AGONY! Jack Ripley now scratches and claws his way to the rope as Sturgis has added a significant amount of damage to the recently repaired left knee of the ‘Straight Shooter’.
James Peters: Jack Ripley needs to know his limits because the last thing he needs is to walk into Fighting Spirit with one leg. Sturgis continues to cinch in the inverted cloverleaf deep on ‘Rip Daddy’ Jack Ripley as he may be on the cusp of having his singles return spoiled by ‘The Unique Ones’!
Rich Russillo: BUT RIPLEY GETS HIS ARM OVER THE BOTTOM ROPE! Jack Ripley is able to break up the cloverleaf as we must ask, is Ripley’s knee in condition for him to continue this match?! Ripley rolls out of the ring, recovering as Sturgis does the same in the corner. Komatsu Ogawa encouraged his tag team partner from ringside before going over to Ripley to trash talk.
Persephone: YSE OGAWA! Tell him how shit he is! Tell him that Rex is better! Tell him that he has no chances against Charlie Marr! Tell him everythin-
James Peters: RIPLEY CONNECTS WITH A FLUSH SUPERKICK ACROSS THE JAW OF KOMATSU OGAWA!!! OGAWA IS DOWN-AND-OUT HRE AT RINGSIDE AS I BELIEVE RIPLEY HAS HAD ENOUGH WITH RINGSIDE DISTRACTIONS! The ‘Rip Daddy’ showing no mercy for what has just fallen before him as STURGIS COMES FLYING OFF THE STEEL STEPS!
Rich Russillo: RIPLEY CIRCLES AROUND HIS WAIST IN MID-AIR AND GOES FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT STURGIS FLIPS RIGHT ONTO HIS FEET! RIPLEY GINGERLY GETS ONTO HIS FEET AS HE IS CLUELESS! STURGIS JUMPS UP AND DRIVES RIPLEY FACE-FIRST INTO THE SIDE OF THE STEEL STEPS WITH A SHOTGUN DROPKICK TO THE BACK!
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!!! THREE!!!! FOUR!!
Persephone: Sturgis rolls in and out of the ring to reset the referee’s count as he grabs Ripley’s tights and leads him towards the barricade. He reclines Ripley and pounds him with a mammoth open-hand chop across the chest. ‘The Fresh Prince Of Mid-Air” avenging the fall of Ogawa hooks his tights!
James Peters: RIPLEY HOISTS HIM UP INSTEAD AND DRIVES HIM AGAINST THE BARRICADE WALL WITH A VERTICAL SUPLEX! That thud into the barricade was hard around the performance center as he now places Sturgis on top of the barricade. ‘The Fresh Prince Of Mid-Air lies on the barricade while Ripley climbs up to join him. Both men are in a precarious position as the amount of surface area they’re dealing with are very small and limited.
Rich Russillo: Sturgis rolls off the barricade and SWEEPS THE LEGS OF THE ‘STRAIGHT SHOOTER’!!!! RIPLEY GOES CHEST-FIRST ONTO THE BARRICADE AS STURGIS NOW PULLS HIM OUT, HANGS HIM OVER THE BARRICADE AND REPEATEDLY BASHES HIS SKULL WITH KNEE AFTER KNEE, AFTER KNEE, AFTER KNEE!
Persephone: Wait… He’s beginning to climb turnbuckle by turnbuckle as Ripley remains draped over the barricade. NO! DON’T DO IT!! AAAAAHHHH! I AM GETTING FLASHBACKS!
James Peters: STURGIS IS SIGNALLING FOR THE REVERSE SENTON ONTO THE HANGING RIPLEY!! THIS IS THE SAME MOVE HE SUCCESSFULLY CONNECTED ON MCALLISTER MANY WEEKS AGO!!
Persephone: NO!! THAT NEVER HAPPENED!!
Rich Russillo: LOOOOOOOOOKKKK NOOOOOO HANNNDS!!!!
( Persephone turns her chair around and looks away as Sturgis goes for the “Look No Hands” reverse facing senton onto the suspended Jack Ripley. )
James Peters: JACK RIPLEY PULLED AWAY AT THE LAST SECOND AND RIPLEY GOES SEVERAL FEET BACK FIRST INTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR! WHT THE FUCK!! SHAWN STURGIS HAS GOT TO BE DEAD!! SOMEONE CHECK ON HIM!!
Persephone: A-HAH! THAT’S WHAT YOU GET!
Rich Russillo: The referee checking on Shawn Sturgis who is unconscious! I don’t think he’s responsive as Ripley doesn’t know the magnitude of his counter! Sturgis is now being helped up by the referee and continues to appear unconscious.
James Peters: Ripley shoves the referee away from the other side of the barricade and slingshots himself over the barricade! AND DRILLS STURGIS ONTO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR WITH A SLINGSHOT DDT!! HE USES THE BARRICADE TO HIS ADVANTAGE AS IF THE UNPROTECTED FALL TO THE OUTSIDE WASN’T ENOUGH!!
Persephone: RIPLEY SLIDES THE DEAD WEIGHT BACK INTO THE RING AND STEPS ONTO THE APRON!! HE SLINGSHOTS OVER THE TOP ROPE ONCE AGAIN! AND SPIKES HIM DEAD ONTO THE CANVAS WITH A SECOND SLINGSHOT DDT!! WE HAVE A WINNER!
OOOOOOONNNEEEEE TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Rich Russillo: STURGIS POWERS OUT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND! YOU’VE GOT TO BE JOKING ME!! RIPLEY NOW SETTING STURGIS UP FOR THE SUPERKICK!! HERE HE GOES!! YOU’LLLLLL FLOOOOATTT TOOOOO!!!
James Peters: STURGIS SIDESTEPS AND THROWS HIM DOWN WITH A SCHOOLBOY PIN! RIPLEY ROLLS RIGHT ONTO HIS FEET AND GOES FOR THE SUPERKICK ONCE AGAIN!! STURGIS GRABS HIS FOOT AND HOLDS IT IN PLACE! STURGIS SPINS RIPLEY AROUND!! RIPLEY ROTATES AND CLOCKS THE PRINCE WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE FACE!! AND ANOTHER ONE TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!
Persephone: JACK RIPLEY HOPS ON ONE LEG TO THE OTHER CORNER!! AND LIMPS TOWARDS STURGIS!! A THIRD SUPERKICK!!! THREE YOU’LL FLOAT TOO’S AND THAT IS IT!! COVER!
OOONNNNNEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
( Sturgis slides his left foot under the bottom rope. )
Persephone: JACK RIPLEY WINS!! THIS MATCH IS OVER!!
Referee: NO! THIS MATCH STILL CONTINUES
James Peters: Jack Ripley is furious with the EAW official here as the show still goes on! Ripley is apoplectic to the maximum as he thought that was it. Sturgis was somehow able to place his foot under the bottom rope, making the pin ineligible and to be honest, I don’t know how he was able to move it. Not only did he endure three ‘You’ll Float Too’ superkicks to the face, he endured two slingshot DDTs and unprotected fall onto the floor. Sturgis is not human!
Rich Russillo: Shawn Sturgis may not be human, but he is still fallible! The “Straight Shooter’ now looking to finalize this match and secure the bag she is now ascending to the top turnbuckle. ‘The Fresh Prince Of Mid-Air’ Shawn Sturgis is shelled out in the middle of the squared circle while Jack Ripley is perched! RIPLEY VAULTS OVER!! BELIIIEVVVEEE ITTTT ORRRR NOTTTT!!
Persephone: STURGIS GETS HIS KNEES UP!! NOW AN INSIDE CRADLE!!
ONE………. TWO……… THREEEEEEEEEEEEEE
James Peters: BOTH MEN GET UP TO THEIR FEET! RIPLEY’S LEFT KNEE BUCKLES AND STURGIS NOW JUMPS OVER!! AND DRILLS HIM WITH THE SEVEN! THE SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB CONNECTS AS HE PINS HIM DOWN!
ONE!!!! TWOOOOOOO!!!! THREEE!!!!
Rich Russillo: JACK RIPLEY HOISTS HIS SHOULDER UP AT TWO!!! STURGIS QUICKLY SHOOTS UP TO HIS FET AND BRINGS ‘RIP DADDY’ UP WITH HIM!! HE SHOOTS THE MIDSECTION KICK AND SNATCHES THE HEAD!! THE STUNNNNNNAAAAHHHH!!!!!!!!
Persephone: THE STUNNER DOESN’T CONNECT AS JACK RIPLEY THRUSTS THE ‘FRESH PRINCE OF MID-AIR OFF HIS SHOULDERS!! HE JUMPS UP ONTO HIS NECK AND DRILLS HIS SKULL INTO THE CANVAS WITH AN INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER.
James Peters: ‘RIP DADDY’ NOW PULLS THE BLACKED-OUT SHAWN STURGIS UP TO HIS FEET AND HOOKS THE ARMS!! HE TURNS HIM AROUND AND LIFTS HIM UP!! JACK RIPLEY ADVANCING FOR THE RIPPLE EFFECT! BUT STURGIS MANAGES TO TURN IT AROUND INTO AN INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER! OF HIS OWN!!
Rich Russillo: RIPLEY IS NOW DOWN!! STURGIS IS NOW UP ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! THE SUN MAY SET FOR ‘THE FRESH PRINCE OF MID-AIR”! LLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOKKKK NOOOOOOOO HHHHHHHHAAAAANNNNDDDDSSS!!
James Peters: BUT HE GETS HIS KNEES UP!! Ripley unable to get a roll-up in as Sturgis was sent flying to the other side of the ring from the impact as he slowly crawled towards him. Komatsu Ogawa is back on his feet and continues to support Sturgis from the apron.
( Jordie Ripley sneaks in from the front row and smashes a steel chair onto the back of Komatsu Ogawa. The referee threatens to banish her from ringside while Jack Ripley anxiously stares at her from the corner. Jack tells her to back off while the referee’s back is faced towards the ring. Sturgis kicks Ripley from behind, sending him colliding into the referee. The official reels through the ropes as Jordie Ripley immediately slides into the ring and goes to smash the steel chair onto the face of Jack Ripley. )
Persephone: JORDIE RIPLEY UNLEASHES THE STEEL CHAIR ONTO THE SKULL OF SHAWN STURGIS! WHERE DID JACK GO!
Rich Russillo: The ‘Fresh Prince Of Mid-Air’ was just crowned by that steel chair as he falls to the canvas. Jack Ripley comes from behind and launches Jordie over the top rope, making her go splattering onto the ringside floor. Jack returns the hurt referee back into the ring as he now has Sturgis in his crosshairs!
Rich Russillo: YOUUUUU’LLLLLLL FLOOOOATTTTT TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNEEEE!! TWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEE!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( ‘BxMxC’ by BABYMETAL hits as Jordie slides into the ring and tries to get a hold of Jack, but Jack Ripley immediately sprints out of the ring area and hops the barricade. He backs off towards the curtains as Ripley dons a smirk on his face while Jordie Ripley is pissed off. )
Bella Braxton: HERE’S YOUR WINNER!!!! JAAAAAAAACCCKKKKK RIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPLLLLLLLEEEEYYY
James Peters: Jack Ripley rectifies his Grand Rampage shortcoming tonight with a comeuppance victory over Shawn Sturgis! He gets the last laugh here on Voltage as he was able to circumvent the antics of Jordie Ripley and Charlie Marr, and could this be the sight we see at Fighting Spirit?
Rich Russillo: This could very well be a preview of what’s to come in Jack Ripley’s unsanctioned match against Charlie Marr, but we’ve got to mention the amount of damage Shawn Sturgis was able to attain on Ripley’s left knee. This is the same knee that put the ‘Straight Shooter’ out of commission for many moons and it might be a factor heading into our last Voltage free-per-view before Payne For Pride 3. This was an amazing performance between two and it was a slobberknocker of a match. What did you think of it, babe?
Persephone: I wouldn’ even call this match more or less than a two-star. What this match lacked was Rex McAllister. If McAllister made this a triple threat or even was the guest referee or bell keeper, this could’ve been a seven-star match. Otherwise, I’m glad we’re closer to the end of the show.
James Peters: Congratulations to Ja-
Persephone: Wait, did you just call me babe?
Rich Russillo: Of course I did. :smugcena:
James Peters: CONGRATULATIONS TO JACK RIPLEY!
(The camera fades backstage into Voltage Commissioner Captain Charisma’s office. Captain Charisma is looking right into the camera. Last week he said he had more announcements regarding Fighting Spirit coming up, and now he plans to reveal some of those announcements. As well as this, Captain Charisma looks to speak on what occurred earlier in the night. After taking a second to prepare his thoughts, Captain Charisma wastes no time and immediately begins to speak.)
Captain Charisma: One week ago on Voltage I talked about how Charlie Marr and Malcolm Jones had ruined each other’s matches at Grand Rampage, but unfortunately those two were not the only Voltage Elitists to be screwed over during their matches. Raven Roberts unfortunately was a victim of this as well. Last week Raven Roberts and I had a long talk about what went down at Grand Rampage during her Universal Women’s Championship match with Minerva. If any of you are unaware, Minerva managed to retain the title, but that only happened because the referee was unable to see that Raven’s foot was under the ropes which means the pinfall should not have counted due to a rope break. Had the referee seen Raven’s foot, who knows what the result of that match would’ve been, but unfortunately it’s too late to change that, as the referee’s decision is final. I can’t change the decision of the match or anything like that, and as well as this I am unable to just give Raven a rematch against Minerva. StarrStan had every right to reward Kasey Kaos with the next opportunity to try and dethrone Minerva, and Showdown’s Interim General Manager Ryan Wilson has refused to allow anyone to be added to that match. While I do outrank both StarrStan and Ryan Wilson as I am commissioner while the other two are general managers, I already know what it’s like to have someone overstep their boundaries and try to ruin your show. I once had to deal with this problem with Veena Adams, so I won’t interfere with decisions made by StarrStan and Ryan Wilson. Instead, I am going to make my own match. At Fighting Spirit I will be putting together a No Way Out match. Six women will have the opportunity to fight for the right to face the Universal Women’s Champion in a Pain for Pride main event. Five of those competitors have yet to be determined, but I already know the first entrant going in that match. It goes without saying that the first women who should get this opportunity is Raven Roberts. Raven Roberts is truly one of the most talented Elitists we have on the Voltage roster, and it would be a shame to not allow her this opportunity after being robbed at Grand Rampage. Raven had an amazing run with the Universal Women’s Championship, and I don’t believe this will be the only time she holds that title. There are not many people Raven Roberts hasn’t managed to beat during her title reign alone, and I for one wouldn’t be surprised if she goes on to win this No Way Out match. She deserves to be in a Pain for Pride main event for that title after losing her last chance at it in an unfair way, and this is her chance to get what she wants.
Captain Charisma: The No Way Out match is going to be a huge opportunity, but that isn’t the only new Fighting Spirit match to be announced tonight. Thanks to the actions of a certain Elitist a new match has now been made, but before I get to that I have to speak about this Voltage, and next week, as I actually have some news regarding Voltage next week. Well, I actually have to confirm a decision made regarding Voltage next week due to. Thanks to the Gawd Contract, I will not be in charge of the next Voltage. Malcolm Jones will be in charge of Voltage instead. This is only a one week thing, but Malcolm will be in full power for this upcoming week, so I am not to be held responsible for any matches that are made under his authority as I will not be involved whatsoever. As well as this, due to Chris Elite complying with Malcolm Jone’s demands, Malcolm will be Chris Elite’s partner to face Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade, and the Blicky Boyz will officially be taking on the Jaded Hearts at Fighting Spirit in a tag team match. To raise the stakes, the future of Pain for Pride will be affected by the outcome of this match. At Fighting Spirit, it will be the Jaded Hearts versus the Blicky Boyz with the Pain for Pride National Elite Championship match between Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade will be on the line. If the Jaded Hearts win this tag team match, they no longer will have to face each other at Pain for Pride. If Chris Elite and Malcolm Jones win, then of course the match is still on. There is a lot on the line here and I’m sure both sides will bring everything they have into this match, especially the Jaded Hearts who clearly don’t want to have to face each other for Kassidy’s Championship. Anyways, just remember next week and next week only Malcolm Jones will be in charge, so don’t be surprised if we see anything out of the ordinary. I believe that’s all for now.
(After the big announcements, the camera begins to fade away from backstage. It is now official, at Fighting Spirit there will be a No Way Out match for number one contendership for the Universal Women’s Championship, and Raven Roberts is the first entrant of that match. As well as this, Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite will be facing Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade in a tag team match at Fighting Spirit, and if the Jaded Hearts win they will no longer have to face each other at Pain for Pride for the National Elite Championship.)
(Voltage cuts to another commercial break.)
(Commercial break for church featuring EAW World Heavyweight Champion Drake King. Clearly this young Elitist needs the power of prayer right now :wow:)
(Voltage returns and the commentators can once again be heard in the background.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentleman, welcome back to EAW’s hottest weekly episodic television show, Sunday Night Voltage! Coming up next, sure to be Voltage classic, a bout that will be remembered for the ages. “The Libertine” Charlie Marr faces off against “The Huntress” Raven Roberts!
Rich Russillo: Truly an FPV worthy match, one that we’re getting on Voltage! Incredible! Will the heart and fighting spirit of Raven Roberts be enough to topple the vile Charlie Marr? Or will “The Libertine” continue his warpath on Voltage by tearing through “The Bird of Prey”? Our questions will all be answered momentarily!
Persephone: Man, shut up you two. The unpleasantry of having to deal with you two on a weekly basis is hard enough, don’t ruin what may be a half-decent match with your fangirling. Buffoons.
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A SINGLES MATCH AND IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!
(‘It Ain’t Safe’ by Skepta begins to reverberate throughout the arena as the abominable presence of Charlie Marr and Jordie make their way onto the stage.) Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF TOWER HAMLETS, LONDON, IN THE UNITTTEEEEDDDD KINGGGGDOOOMMMMMM, WEIGHING IN AT 240 POOOOUUUNNNDDSSS, CHHAAAAARRRRRRLLLLIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEE “TTTHHHHHEEE LIIIIIBBBEEERRRTTTIIINNNEEE” MAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
Rich Russillo: Charlie Marr, man. What more is there to say about him? “Main Event Marr” has done nothing but live up to the name and he has done it in violent fashion. After taking EAW by storm, Marr’s path seemingly carried him to Sunday Night Voltage. He’s etched his initials into the skin of Voltage and has become a top star on the gold brand!
James Peters: While. Yes, he has become a star, he also leaves a trail of blood and fury wherever he goes. A trail of bodies follows the path of “The Libertine” and he couldn’t be more in love with that fact. Ever since losing The EAW World Championship, Charlie Marr’s reached a new level of destructiveness.He had an incredible showing in the Grand Rampage, tearing a warpath through all who stepped in front of him, until his eventual elimination, caused largely by Malcolm Jones.
Persephone: He appears to have channeled all that post Grand Rampage rage and will direct in a single direction, Raven Roberts’ direction. Marr’s expression is as nasty as ever, he’s not stranger to utilizing whatever tools necessary to pick up the win, it’ll be most interesting to see how Raven combats this.
(Charlie Marr rolls into the ring and begins pacing from corner to corner, eyeing the entrance ramp, awaiting the arrival of his foe. ‘Mark My Words’ by Doll Skin begins to echo throughout the empty Voltage arena as Raven “The Huntress” Roberts makes her way onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT, WRESTLING OUT OF LOUISVILLE, KENTUCCKKKYYYY, WEIGHING IN AT 139 POUUUNNDDSSSS, RAVVVVEEEENNNNNNNNNN “THHHEEEE BIIIRRRRRDDD OFFFF PRREEEYYYYYYY” ROOOOOBBBBBEEERRRRTTTSSSSS!!!!!
James Peters: This woman has time and time again shown why exactly she is a staple on this brand and why she is one of the most prolific competitors we’ve seen to date. Raven Roberts fighting spirit is rivaled by very few and she continually proves to be one of the toughest and most perseverant competitors on Voltage.
Rich Russillo: While that is more than true, she will need every ounce of that spirit tonight and more if she hopes to topple “The Libertine”. Raven’s got large matches on the horizons and grand opportunities in the near future. At Gateway To Glory, a Dynasty event, Raven Roberts and her husband, Mr. Grand Rampage, Rex McAllister , will battle Drake King and The Visual Prophet for the EAW Unified World Tag Team Championships. Though she must clear that from her mind, seeing as how it would be Charlie Marr’s honor to prevent Raven from being able to compete in that match. If there’s anyone who can combat Charlie’s ferocity, it’s Raven Roberts.
(The referee signals for the timekeeper to ring the bell three times, indicating the official beginning of the match.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: CHARLIE MARR DOESN’T WASTE ANY TIME! HE IMMEDIATELY GOES FOR THE CHARING CROSS AS SOON AS THE REFEREE STEPS OUT OF THE WAY! RAVEN ROBERTS DUCKS, WHICH FORCES MARR TO HIT THE BRAKES BEFORE HE CRASHES INTO THE ROPES! RAVEN FROM BEHIND WITH A ROLL UP, BUT MARR ROLLS THROUGH! BOTH ARE BACK UP AND RAVEN FLIES AT CHARLIE, LOOKING FOR A TALON!!!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE DUCKS THE TALON! AND RAVEN IS FORCED TO COME TO A STOP! CHARLIE GRABS A HANDFUL OF TIGHTS AND ROLLS HER UP, BUT RAVEN KICKS OUT BEFORE THE REFEREE CAN EVEN GET TO ONE! BOTH ARE BACK UP AND LUNGE AT ONE ANOTHER, AND IT’S CHARLIE WHO IS ABLE TO TAKE RAVEN BY THE THROAT AND FORCE HER INTO THE CORNER! RAVEN IMMEDIATELY KNEES CHARLIE IN THE STOMACH TO BREAK HIS HOLD, BUT CHARLIE RESPONDS BY SLAPPING THE SHIT OUT OF RAVEN!
Persephone: Getting slapped around is nothing new for this little cunt with daddy issues.
James Peters: RAVEN RESPONDS WITH A BRUTAL RIGHT HAND THAT ROCKS CHARLIE! SHE PUNCHES HIM AGAIN! AND AGAIN! RAVEN JUST CONTINUES TO HAMMER CHARLIE WITH ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL RIGHT HANDS, AND CHARLIE IS FORCED INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! RAVEN NAILS HIM WITH A PERFECTLY PLACED KICK ACROSS THE CHEST AND SHE LEAPS UP IN THE AIR TO CONNECT WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW! SHE TAKES CHARLIE BY THE BEARD, SNAPMARES HIM TO THE GROUND, AND PLACES A KICK RIGHT BETWEEN THE SHOULDER BLADES!!!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN IMMEDIATELY GRABS CHARLIE’S ARMS AND FORCES THEM BEHIND CHARLIE, PLACING HER KNEE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS BACK! THE FORMER EAW WORLD CHAMPION ATTEMPTS TO GET HIS FEET UNDER HIM, BUT RAVEN SLAMS HER FOREHEAD INTO THE BACK OF CHARLIE’S SKULL! THAT HEADBUTT AFFECTED BOTH OF THEM, BUT RAVEN IS ONE OF THE TOUGHEST WOMEN TO EVER COMPETE HERE IN ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING! SHE MAINTAINS CONTROL OF THE HOLD, AND CHARLIE ONCE AGAINST TRIES TO BRING THEM BOTH BACK UP TO A VERTICAL BASE! RAVEN IS NOT HAVING IT! SHE HEADBUTTS CHARLIE AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN! :damn: JESUS!
Persephone: I mean if she just wants to concuss herself, I’m not going to complain. She can keep her ass at home next week and I can have Rexy all to myself.
James Peters: Something tells me Rex is going to end up having to get a restraining order on you before we even make it Fighting Spirit.
Persephone: Ohmygod, I can’t wait to see what he wears on the Hall of Fame red carpet 🤤🤤! I’m going to have to find that out so him and I can match! 😍😍!!!
Rich Russillo: … I was low key hoping we could go to the Hall of Fame together, Seph.
(Persephone laughs hysterically much to Rich’s horror.)
James Peters: :lupe: WELP! NEVERTHELESS! CHARLIE HAS FINALLY GOTTEN BACK TO HIS FEET! RAVEN HAS SWITCH TO A SIDE HEADLOCK, BUT CHARLIE LIFTS HER IN THE AIR AND SLAMS HER DOWN INTO THE MAT WITH A SIDEWALK SLAM! CHARLIE GOES FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: RAVEN GETS THE SHOULDER UP! CHARLIE MOUNTS RAVEN AND PEPPERS HER WITH A SERIES OF STIFF FOREARM SHOTS! RAVEN THROWS HER HANDS UP TO DEFEND AGAINST ANOTHER, BUT CHARLIE SNATCHES HER UP AND THROWS HER INTO THE CORNER! HE DRIVES HIS SHOULDER REPEATEDLY INTO HER GUT BEFORE BACKING AWAY, AND NAILING HER WITH A JUMPING CORNER CLOTHESLINE! CHARLIE STOMPS RAVEN DOWN INTO A SITTING POSITION, AND THEN STRIKES HER RIGHT IN THE FACE WITH A KNEE! HE LOOKS DOWN AT THE BIRD OF PREY AND HE SPITS ON HER :damn:!!! RAVEN IS NOT GOING TO LIKE THAT AT ALL!!!
Persephone: I highly doubt that’s the first time this bitch ever got spit on. I’m sure she’s also been shit on, pissed on, cummed on… you name it. Raven Roberts has likely taken it!
Rich Russillo: So you really don’t want to be my date for the Hall of Fame?
Persephone: Can you just call this stupid fucking match with James so I can go back to online shopping? Neimen Marcus is like filing for bankruptcy and I’m not about to miss any sales.
James Peters: CHARLIE HAS RAVEN BY THE HAIR AND HE IS DRAGGING HER TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! HE’S GOT HER UP AND THERE’S THE HEADMASTER RITUAL! THE SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS AND CHARLIE RUNS THE ROPES, NAILING RAVEN WITH A LEGDROP RIGHT ACROSS THE THROAT! CHARLIE STAYS IN THAT POSITION AND GOES FOR A COVER!!!
James Peters: KICK OUT BY RAVEN! MAN! I AM DOING ALL THE WORK FOR THIS MATCH!
Persephone: Like I was ever going to get excited and call a Raven Roberts match :mjlol: Fuck that. You got enough excitement over this bullshit for all three of us.
James Peters: CHARLIE GRABS RAVEN IN A SLEEPER, WHICH FORCES THE FORMER UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION TO START LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT! SHE REACHES FOR THE ROPES, BUT THEY’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! RAVEN IS A VERY UNDERRATED MAT TECHNICIAN AND THAT’S WHY SHE IS REACHING UP AND ATTEMPTING TO HOOK HER ARM AROUND CHARLIE’S NECK! CHARLIE FORCES RAVEN ONTO THE MAT, PINNING ONE OF HER SHOULDERS DOWN, BUT THAT WAS A MISTAKE! RAVEN IS ABLE TO USE HER LEGS TO HOOK CHARLIE AROUND THE NECK AND HE’S FORCED TO LET GO! RAVEN FORCES CHARLIE TO THE MAT!
James Peters: CHARLIE KICKS OUT AND SLIPS OUT OF THE LEG SCISSORS! HE LOOKS TO NAIL RAVEN WITH A BIG BOOT, BUT SHE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! CHARLIE TURNS AROUND, BUT RAVEN SPRINGS UP AND SENDS HIM CRASHING INTO THE ROPES WITH A DROPKICK! RAVEN IS BACK UP AND THERE IS THE TALON! THE TALON KICK SENDS CHARLIE RIGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE AND HE LANDS AT JORDIE’S FEET! JORDIE TRIES TO TEND TO HIM BUT RAVEN HAS GONE UP TOP! JORDIE GETS THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY AS RAVEN FLIES! ‘RAVEN’S WINGS’!!! THE SPIRAL TAP CONNECTS ON CHARLIE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! HOLY SHIT!
Persephone: I low key wish she would have missed and broken her fat neck.
James Peters: RAVEN IS BACK UP AND SHE IMMEDIATELY GOES AFTER JORDIE MARR! JORDIE WANTS NOTHING TO DO WITH RAVEN AND SHE QUICKLY SCURRIES AWAY! RAVEN MAKES HER WAY BACK OVER TO CHARLIE AND JERKS HIM UP BY THE BEARD! SHE TAKES CHARLIE BY THE NECK AND SLAMS HIS FACE OFF THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING! RAVEN ROLLS CHARLIE BACK INTO THE RING AND SHE IMMEDIATELY GOES FOR THE COVER!
Rich Rusillo: Well Charlie got the shoulder up.
James Peters: Are you going to actually do your job now?
Rich Russillo: Sure.
Persephone: Don’t be sad, Richy. I would literally laugh in the face of anyone who asked me out. My heart belongs only to Rex.
Rich Russillo: Raven pulls Charlie up into a sitting position and gets him in position to apply a rear naked choke! Charlie kicks her away, but Raven stays on him and begins hammering away! Charlie is able to muscle her off, and as he attempts to get back to his feet, Raven comes right back at him! She looks for a kick to the face, but Charlie rolls out of the way! He grabs Raven from behind and pulls her down to the mat!
James Peters: KICK OUT BY RAVEN! BOTH SCRAMBLE TO THEIR FEET AND NOW THEY’RE LOCKING UP! COLLAR AND ELBOW TIE UP! CHARLIE HAS A MAJOR SIZE ADVANTAGE OVER RAVEN! HE FORCES HER AGAINST THE ROPES AND CHOPS THE FUCK OUT OF HER CHEST! RAVEN WINCES IN PAIN AND CHARLIE IS LIGHTING HER UP NOW! CHOP AFTER CHOP CONNECTS AND RAVEN’S CHEST IS TURNING DIFFERENT SHADES OF RED AND PURPLE! CHARLIE WITH A HUGE EUROPEAN UPPERCUT NOW THAT SNAPS RAVEN’S HEAD BACK AND HE TURNS TOWARDS THE REFEREE! JORDIE RUSHES IN AND TRIPS UP RAVEN, WHO SLAMS FACE FIRST INTO THE MAT! CHARLIE TURNS BACK TO HIS OPPONENT AND STARTS STOMPING ON THE BACK OF RAVEN’S HEAD!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE JERKS RAVEN UP BY THE HAIR AND SLINGS HER INTO THE CORNER! HE WAITS FOR HER TO PULL HERSELF UP AND HE RUSHES HER! RUNNING CORNER CLOTHESLINE! RAVEN SLUMPS TO THE GROUND! CHARLIE PULLS HER AWAY FROM THE CORNER AND DRAPES HER ACROSS THE ROPES! ROPE HUNG DDT!!! RAVEN ROBERTS MIGHT BE OUT! CHARLIE PULLS HER AWAY FROM THE ROPES AND HOOKS THE LEGS FOR THE COVER!!!
Persephone: Yawn. She kicked out.
James Peters: CHARLIE DOESN’T WASTE TIME, THOUGH! HE GRABS RAVEN AND HE IS GETTING HER IN POSITION FOR THE QUEEN IS DE-
Rich Russillo: RAVEN MANAGES TO CATCH CHARLIE WITH A BACK BODY DROP!!!! CHARLIE’S DOWN! RAVEN RUNS TO THE ROPES AND USES THEM TO SPRING HERSELF IN THE AIR! LIONSAULT CONNECTS ON CHARLIE! WILL IT BE ENOUGH?!
James Peters: NO! IT’S GOING TO TAKE SO MUCH MORE TO PUT CHARLIE AWAY!
Rich Russillo: I gotta catch my breath! Raven grabs Charlie by the arm and tries to set him up for her version of the Fujiwara Armbar she calls ‘Wing Breaker’! Charlie immediately nails her in the side of the head with a kick, and he looks for a rear naked choke of his own! Charlie has ‘Tranquility’ locked in! Raven might have to submit!
James Peters: Not so fast! They’re so close to the ropes and Raven is able to hook her foot across the bottom! The referee sees this and he tells Charlie, who is absolutely livid! He takes that frustration out on Raven and continues holding onto the move! The referee has to step in! He has got to administer this count!
Referee: ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR…
Rich Russillo: Charlie finally lets go, but he strikes Raven right in the jaw with a forearm! He pulls her up, lifts her onto his shoulders, and brings her crashing face first across his knee! Charlie pounds Raven in the face with his fist before he drags her back over to the ropes and uses them to choke her! The referee once against has to admonish Charlie, and Charlie isn’t handling that very well! He grabs the referee by the shirt and starts screaming at him AND THAT ALLOWS JORDIE TO SLAM HER STILETTO INTO RAVEN’S TEMPLE!
James Peters: THIS IS RIDICULOUS! CHARLIE THROWS THE REFEREE TO THE SIDE AND GRABS RAVEN! CHARLIE QUICKLY HOOKS HER! THE QUEEN IS DEAD! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT CONNECTS ON RAVEN! CHARLIE WITH THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: NO! THE REFEREE IS WAVING IT OFF! RAVEN’S FOOT IS UNDER THE ROPES! THE PIN DOESN’T COUNT! CHARLIE IS BESIDE HIMSELF! HE HAD THE MATCH WON! JORDIE IS SHOCKED AS WELL! SHE CAN’T BELIEVE RAVEN GOT HER FOOT UNDER THE ROPES!
James Peters: CHARLIE IS FURIOUS! HE WANTS NOTHING MORE THAN TO KILL THIS REFEREE RIGHT NOW! CHARLIE IS GOING TO GET HIMSELF DISQUALIFIED IF HE DOESN’T WATCH OUT!
(That’s when the videotron flickers to life and Malcolm Jones is seen standing by. He’s got a shit-eating grin on his face and he whistles, drawing the eyes of Charlie Marr.)
Malcolm Jones: So check it. Your boy is officially going to be the acting General Manager of Voltage next week. That means I got all the power in the world to do whatever the fuck I want I want on this brand. That’s why I’m going to take the time to announce my first match for next and trust me, it’s a good one!
(Charlie takes a breath because he knows he is about to have his whole world fucked up.)
Malcolm Jones: I decided to make a good ole fashion handicap match featuring Charlie Marr with his little hoe wife suspended above the ring in a shark cage! Hi.
(Charlie does not say ‘hi’ back. Meanwhile, on the outside of the ring, Jordie looks sick to her stomach.)
Malcolm Jones: And he will be taking on Sarah Price! The EAW New Breed Champion, Jalyn Garcia! AND… AND…
Charlie Marr (Off Mic): AND?! The fuck you mean ‘and’??
(A grin spreads across Malcolm’s face.)
Malcolm Jones: AND… TERRY CHAMBERS!!!
(Charlie’s face flushes with rage as Malcolm waves at him. The videotron flickers off and Charlie literally has to take several deep breaths to calm himself down.)
Persephone: Whoa! That was a great announcement! A 3-On-1 Handicap match featuring Terry, Sarah, and Jalyn against Charlie Marr?! LMAOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE TURNS AROUND AND RUNS WITH INTO THE TALON KICK! RAVEN JUST ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED CHARLIE WITH THE CLAYMORE KICK! SHE QUICKLY GOES FOR THE COVER!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… RAVEN ROBERTS!
(“Mark My Words” by Dollskin begins to play, but Raven doesn’t bother letting the referee raise her hand. Getting a win thanks to someone else being distracted is never how Raven wants it to go, but right now, she will take it with a grain of salt and move ahead to bigger and better things.)
Rich Russillo: Well, I’m sure this isn’t the victory Raven wanted, but it’s a victory nonetheless. Malcolm Jones picked the perfect time to pop up on the videotron and announce a match for next week featuring Charlie taking on three other Elitists while his wife is suspended above the ring in a cage. Lord help us.
James Peters: I am absolutely terrified to see what kind of card Malcolm is going to make. If It’s anything like the match he just announced, then it’s going to be one fucked up night.
(Voltage fades to break.)
(Commercial break for Taco Bell featuring TLA. It’s not real Mexican food, though.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentleman, welcome back to EAW’s most exciting weekly episodic television show, Sunday Night Voltage! Coming up next, the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the main event! The EAW New Breed Champion, Jalyn Garcia, will face off against the Interwire Champion Consuela Rose Ava and The EAW World Champion, Andrea Valentine! What a match this is! FPV main event worthy, The World Champion, New Breed Champion and the Interwire Champion going head to head on Voltage! It truly doesn’t get better than this!
Rich Russillo: You got that right, Rich. Once again, showing us all why Sunday Night Voltage is and forever will be, the A show. Three of the most exciting athletes in the world set for the showdown of a lifetime here tonight!
Persephone: Clearly my ears are also in for the showdown of a lifetime, with you two idiots annoying voices. Honestly, shut the hell up. Let’s proceed with the match.
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!
(‘Martyr (Waves)’ by Polaris begins to echo throughout the arena, and Jalyn Garcia makes his way out to the stage with the New Breed Championship around his waist. Jalyn has a focused look in his face, despite being proud of what he accomplished at Grand Rampage. Jalyn wastes no time and immediately begins making his way down the ramp and towards the ring as Consuela watches on.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST, FROM SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA…. WEIGHING IN AT 150 POUNDS… HE IS THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION, JAAAAALLYYYYYNNNN GAAARRRRCCIIIAAAAA!!!!!
James Peters: And here is the New Breed Champion! I think the entire EAW Universe has to agree that Jalyn Garcia does deserve this Championship after the journey he’s had in this company, and now he’s looking to prove his credibility as a Champion in this huge main event match! He is going to be facing the Interwire and EAW Champions, so let’s not waste anymore time here!
Rich Russillo: Most people would easily put their money on the EAW Champion, but I don’t think anything about this match will be easy. Jalyn Garcia has had an incredibly quick rise in EAW, and we all know just how amazing Consuela Rose Ava is as a competitor. This honestly may just be anyone’s match tonight.
(‘We Appreciate Power’ by Grimes begins to reverberate throughout the arena as Consuela Rose Ava excitedly makes her way onto the stage. She has the Interwire Championship on her shoulder, and has a confident yet focused look on her face as she makes her way down the ramp, looking right towards Jalyn, who is standing in the ring.)
Bella Braxton: MAKING HER WAY TO THE RING, FROM FRIAS, SPAIIINNNNN, WEIGHING IN AT 120 POOOUUUNNNDDDDS… SHE IS THE WAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION, CONNNNSUUELLLAAAAAA ROOOOSSEEEEE AVVVVAAAAAAA!!!!!
James Peters: “The Soul of Voltage” making her way down the ramp, looking as eager as ever to begin her match, she’s certainly done more than live up to her namesake. Displaying incredible heart, soul, and grit every time she graces the squared circle. Consuela Rose Ava’s the real deal.
Rich Russillo: You’re absolutely right, James. A former three time Specialists Champion, current Interwire Champion, the list goes on and on. Consuela’s accolades need absolutely no polishing, her tenure is second to none and her resume is contested by very few.
Persephone: She’s no Grand Rampage winner, not like Rex McSexy, though she certainly has accomplishments under her belt… I guess.
(Finally, ‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX hits, and after a few moments Andrea Valentine makes her way out to the stage. She has a smirk on her face as she is more than prepared for this match, and after looking towards her competition in Consuela Rose Ava and Jalyn Garcia, she finally begins to make her way down the ramp and into the ring with the EAW Championship on her shoulder.)
Bella Braxton: AND FINALLY…. FROM ORLANDO, FLORIDDAAA…. WEIGHING IN AT 110 POUNDSS…. SHE IS THE EAW CHAMPION, AAAANNDDRREEEAAAA VAAAALLEEENNNNTIIIIIINNEEE!!!!!
James Peters: And here she is, the EAW Champion! I’m sure Andrea is going to want to in a way redeem herself after her match with Malcolm Jones didn’t end with a clean title defense thanks to Charlie Marr. If there’s any way to do it, it’s this! This is a Champion’s showcase, and honestly I am more than excited for this!
Rich Russillo: I have to wonder, will Consuela and Andrea work together?
James Peters: Maybe they will, maybe they won’t. If you ask me, I think they’ll probably do whatever is necessary to get the job done. They’re all Champions for a reason, they have to know that even if they do work together, alliances in this match can only be temporary.
Rich Russillo: That’s right, but let’s not forget that nobody really needs to work together here. All three competitors are incredible on their own, and Andrea is the EAW Champion after all. I am excited for this, let’s just start this already.
Persephone: Yes, please let’s just get this over with.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And the main event match is now underway! Jalyn Garcia versus Consuela Rose Ava versus Andrea Valentine! The three competitors circling the ring now, ready to see who will strike first, and I have to say I wonder if Consuela and Andrea are going to work together here. As we all know those two are part of the Beating Hearts of Voltage, if I were Jalyn Garcia I’d do whatever I could in order to avoid being put in a situation like that. The three competitors are beginning to get closer to each other- AND NOW JALYN GOES AFTER BOTH CONSUELA AND ANDREA! BOTH WOMEN TAKEN BY SURPRISE HERE AS JALYN IS DELIVERING FOREARMS TO BOTH OF THEM!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA PUSHES JALYN AWAY AS JALYN IS BACKED INTO THE ROPES- BUT JALYN PULLS DOWN THE TOP ROPE AS ANDREA CHARGED ON, CAUSING ANDREA TO FLY OVER IT OUTSIDE OF THE RING! CONSUELA NOW PULLING JALYN FROM BEHIND INTO A SCHOOL BOY, BUT JALYN IMMEDIATELY KICKS OUT BEFORE GRABBING CONSUELA AND DRAGGING HER TO THE MAT FOR A GROUNDED HEADLOCK! Consuela is immediately able to wrap her legs around Jalyn’s head to escape the headlock, and Jalyn now kips up to his feet before pulling Consuela down for a crucifix pin!
Persephone: I had my hopes up for a second thinking Consuela wouldn’t kick out, but she did. Now Consuela put Jalyn in a headlock, but Jalyn immediately ran into the ropes so Consuela would be forced to let go. Jalyn just his Consuela with a drop toe hold after she bounced off the ropes, and I was hoping that he would go for a pin but I guess he is gonna try to make her tap out instead since he just put her in a rear chinlock. As long as this ends ASAP I am fine. I want to get out of here as soon as possib-
James Peters: ANDREA WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO JALYN’S BACK! Jalyn rolling into the corner before using it to get back up, and it looks like Jalyn may be in a bit of trouble now! Andrea now charging in, AND JALYN EATS A HUGE FOREARM STRIKE! ANDREA NOW WITH AN IRISH WHIP INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER BEFORE CHARGING IN, AND THERE’S ANOTHER FOREARM TO JALYN, BUT THIS TIME ANDREA ISN’T STOPPING THERE AS SHE GRABS JALYN BY THE BACK OF HIS HEAD, AND PLANTS HIM WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG! ANDREA GETTING BACK TO HER FEET AND-
Rich Russillo: CONSUELA HITS ANDREA WITH A KNEE LIFT TO THE MIDSECTION! As we all know a triple threat means that there are no alliances, no long lasting ones at least! Consuela now putting Andrea in a front facelock, and she attempts a suplex, but Andrea is able to slip out of Consuela’s grasp and land on her feet, before hitting Consuela with an enzuigiri! Andrea now grabbing Consuela’s arm and it looks like she’s already setting up the XOXO- BUT CONSUELA KICKS ANDREA IN THE MIDSECTION BEFORE IT COULD CONNECT, AND NOW CONSUELA PULLS ANDREA INTO THE CORNER BEFORE RUNNING UP THE TURNBUCKLES! TORNADO DDT BY CONSUELA!
Persephone: Messy hair kid is getting back to his feet, but Consuela just ran at him with a running knee- oh. Nevermind. Walmart Tarzan moved out of the way and he just grabbed Consuela from behind and went for a German suplex, but Consuela elbowed him in the face. Honestly he’s pretty ugly I wouldn’t have minded her hitting a couple more elbows. Well Consuela now with a double leg takedown, and now she tried hitting a double foot stomp onto the homeless kid’s stomach, but he moved out of the way.
James Peters: Jalyn grabbed Consuela’s leg and immediately put her into an ankle lock after she missed the double foot stomp- BUT WAIT A SECOND! ANDREA STEPPING ONTO CONSUELA, AND SHE JUST HIT JALYN WITH A STEP-UP DROPKICK, USING CONSUELA LIKE A FOOT STOOL! Andrea clearly hasn’t fully recovered from that tornado DDT as she immediately grabs onto the ropes to make it back to her feet, but she knew she had to break up that submission just in case, as this match can be won by submission! Jalyn rolling out to the apron, and now Andrea and Consuela get back to their feet as Jalyn gets back up!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA DIVES OVER JALYN WITH A SUNSET FLIP POWERBOM- NO! JALYN IS HANGING ONTO THE ROPES AS HARD AS HE CAN TO STOMP THE POWERBOMB FROM CONNECTING! CONSUELA IS BACK UP THOUGH, AND NOW SHE RUNS THE ROPES! DROPKICK TO JALYN- BUT IN THE PROCESS JALYN HITS ANDREA WITH A HURRICANRANA! THINGS CLEARLY DIDN’T GO TO PLAN THERE, BUT NOW BOTH JALYN AND ANDREA ARE DOWN! THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION IS THE ONLY ONE LEFT STANDING, AND NOW SHE LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE!
Persephone: Both Andrea and the homeless kid are getting back up, and Consuela just sent the homeless kid over the barricade, and now Consuela just tried to go after Andrea but Andrea hit Consuela with a forearm. Andrea now hitting another forearm, and now she smashed Consuela’s head onto the barricade. Oh. No she didn’t, Consuela stopped herself by putting her hand in front of her, and now she just elbowed Andrea in the stomach. Consuela now grabbing Andrea, and she just sent her flying into the barricade. Consuela grabbing Andrea now and if God is real this means Consuela is bringing her back into the ring and finishing this match-
James Peters: JALYN WITH A DIVING BULLDOG ONTO BOTH WOMEN OFF THE BARRICADE! WHAT A MOVE BY JALYN GARCIA! JALYN NOW GRABBING CONSUELA, AND HE SENDS HER FACE FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST, BEFORE GRABBING ANDREA AND SENDING HER BACK INTO THE RING! JALYN CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE AS ANDREA SLOWLY FINDS HER WAY BACK UP, AND NOW JALYN DROPS ANDREA WITH A DIVING DROPKICK! ANDREA WAS SENT HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING WITH THAT, AND NOW IT LOOKS LIKE ANDREA HAS STUMBLED INTO THE CORNER, JUST WHERE JALYN WANTS HER!
Rich Russillo: JALYN NOW CHARGING IN, AND HE HITS A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE TO ANDREA IN THE CORNER! JALYN GRABBING ANDREA NOW, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S SETTING UP A SUPLEX BUT ANDREA HITS HIM WITH A KNEE TO THE HEAD! ANDREA NOW GRABBING JALYN FROM BEHIND, AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLE- NO! JALYN MANAGED TO LAND ON HIS FEET BEFORE GRABBING ANDREA FROM BEHIND! HALF AND HALF SUPLEX- JUST FOR ANDREA TO LAND ON HER FEET JUST LIKE JALYN DID! ANDREA GRABBING JALYN AND SENDING HIM TO THE ROPES, BUT JALYN DUCKS ANDREA’S LARIAT ATTEMPT BEFORE BOUNCING OFF THE OPPOSITE PAIR OF ROPES AND HITTING A HUGE BICYCLE KNEE!
Persephone: Andrea is trying to get back to her feet, but Jalyn now grabs her and has her in a front facelock, setting up for a DDT or something- BUT CONSUELA PULLS JALYN IN FOR A PIN BEFORE HE COULD HIT IT! PLEASE TELL ME THIS MATCH IS ALREADY OVER!
Persephone: Oh. Yuck. Jalyn kicked out. They both got to their feet immediately, and Consuela attempted a roundhouse kick but Jalyn ducked it. Jalyn now just hit Consuela with a bicycle kick, and Andrea just hit Consuela with a jumping knee as she turned towards her.
James Peters: NO SHE DOESN’T! CONSUELA BLOCKED THE KNEE, AND NOW SHE ATTEMPTS TO SEND ANDREA OVER THE TOP ROPE- BUT ANDREA IS ABLE TO LIFT CONSUELA OVER HER HEAD, CAUSING CONSUELA TO FALL OUT THE RING! JALYN NOW RUNNING THE ROPES AS CONSUELA BEGINS TO GET BACK UP- AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE WANTED TO TRY TO SEND ANDREA OVER HIMSELF, BUT ANDREA DOES THE SAME TO JALYN, CAUSING JALYN TO HIT CONSUELA WITH AN ASSISTED TOPE CON HILO!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA NOW CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE AS JALYN GETS BACK UP, BUT JALYN DOESN’T REALIZE WHAT’S ABOUT TO HAPPEN! DIVING CROSSBODY BY ANDREA VALENTINE, ALL THE WAY FROM THE TOP ROPE!!! WHAT ARE WE SEEING HERE FROM THESE THREE CHAMPIONS!? ANDREA QUICKLY GETS BACK TO HER FEET BEFORE SENDING JALYN BACK INTO THE RING, AND NOW SHE CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP ROPE! THE TABLES SEEMED TO HAVE COMPLETELY TURNED, AND THERE’S ANDREA WITH A DIVING METEORA ON JALYN! THE COVER!
ONE! TWO!! T-
Rich Russillo: JALYN GARCIA MANAGES TO KICK OUT! Andrea doesn’t exactly look finished yet though, this could be bad for Jalyn as Andrea heads back up to the top rope!
Persephone: Andrea is on the top rope, and as long as this gets the job done I’m fine with it. Andrea diving off, and wow she actually managed to hit the Magic Hour without it getting avoided. Andrea now going for the- O. Consuela just planted Andrea with a DDT before she could pin Jalyn, and now she’s pinning Jalyn herself.
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
Persephone: Really…? Jalyn kicked out again, but why? Does he really have anything to gain making this match go longer and in the process continuing to torture me?
James Peters: This is a showcase of Champions Persephone. This is a match to determine who the best Champion on Voltage really is, and from the looks of it, it really could be any one of these three. This match has been perfectly even so far, I have no idea who could possibly win this. Consuela now backing up into the corner, and it looks like Andrea Valentine is slowly beginning to get to her feet! This could be bad for Andrea, it looks like she’s exactly where Consuela wants her! Consuela now charging in-
Rich Russillo: RIGHT INTO A KICK TO THE FACE! CONSUELA IS STUNNED AS ANDREA WAS ABLE TO HIT THAT KICK OUT OF NOWHERE, AND NOW ANDREA LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE AS SHE GRABS CONSUELA AND GOES UP THE TOP ROPE! TORNADO DDT- BACK BODY DROP BY CONSUELA! ANDREA IS DOWN, AND NOW IT LOOKS LIKE CONSUELA IS LOOKING TO PUT ANDREA AWAY AS SHE GRABS HER ARM! CONSUELA IS TRYING TO LOCK IN THE SUELA LOCK! CONSUELA IS SLOWLY ABLE TO WRESTLE ANDREA DOWN TO THE MAT, AND NOW IT’S IN! THE SUELA LOCK IS IN, AND I THINK ANDREA MIGHT JUST HAVE TO TAP OUT! THIS IS THE MOVE THAT WON CONSUELA THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP AT GRAND RAMPAGE!
Persephone: Uh…. Andrea is trying to reach the ropes, but she can’t. She honestly should just tap out now. I’d appreciate her way more if she just let this match end already. I for one don’t think any match should go past three minutes, except for Sexy Rexy’s matches of course. Oh, is Andrea about to tap? It looks like it. Clearly Andrea isn’t gonna make it to the ropes, so thank you Andrea for doing the right thing and just giving- Oh come on.
James Peters: JALYN GARCIA JUST HIT CONSUELA WITH A RUNNING KNEE, RIGHT INTO HER NOSE! ANDREA WAS DOING EVERYTHING SHE COULD IN ORDER TO NOT TAP OUT, AND CLEARLY IT PAID OFF AS JALYN WAS ABLE TO MAKE THE SAVE! WAIT A SECOND, IT LOOKS LIKE JALYN IS ABOUT TO TRY AND CAPITALIZE OFF OF THE DAMAGE CONSUELA ALREADY DID TO ANDREA! JALYN PULLING ANDREA UP, AND HE HITS THE STRAIGHT JACKET GERMAN SUPLEX, AND HE BRIDGES ANDREA INTO THE PIN, I THINK THIS MAY BE IT! THERE’S NO WAY ANDREA IS KICKING OUT OF THIS- WAIT, LOOK! CONSUELA JUST JUMPED ONTO ANDREA TO KEEP HER SHOULDERS DOWN, AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE A DOUBLE PIN, BUT WHAT DOES THAT MEAN!? WHO WINS!?
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
Rich Russillo: NOBODY DOES, ANDREA MANAGED TO KICK OUT JUST BEFORE THREE!! BOTH CONSUELA AND JALYN CAN’T BELIEVE IT, ANDREA SOMEHOW MANAGED TO KICK OUT OF THAT STRAIGHT JACKET GERMAN SUPLEX WITH BOTH JALYN AND CONSUELA PINNING HER, AND NOW THE FIRST THING ANDREA DOES IS ROLL OUT OF THE RING! How on Earth this match is still going on is beyond me! Consuela and Jalyn now both getting back up, AND JALYN HITS CONSUELA WITH A PUNCH IN THE MIDSECTION! JALYN NOW WITH ANOTHER PUNCH! AND ANOTHER! CONSUELA NOW WITH A FOREARM TO JALYN! NOW JALYN WITH A FOREARM TO CONSUELA! NOW CONSUELA WITH A FOREARM! JALYN AND CONSUELA GOING BACK AND FORTH HERE, AND THERE’S JALYN WITH A CLOTHESLINE!
Persephone: Nope. Consuela ducked under the clothesline, and she just hit Jalyn with a chop. Consuela now hitting another one, and another one, and now she runs the ropes before sending Jalyn over the top rope with her own clothesline. Consuela now is running the ropes, and she just took out both Andrea and Jalyn with the Tope Consuela Hilo. Please tell me this means the match is going to end soon-
James Peters: IT DIDN’T HIT JALYN! JALYN MANAGED TO GET OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT, THE TOPE CONSUELA HILO ONLY HIT ANDREA! JALYN NOW GRABBING CONSUELA, AND HE TOSSES HER INTO THE RING! JALYN NOW ENTERING THE RING HIMSELF, AND NOW HE CHARGES TOWARDS CONSUELA AS SHE GETS BACK UP- JUST TO BE MET WITH A SPANISH FLY!! CONSUELA JUST HIT THE SPANISH FLY OUT OF NOWHERE, AND NOW I THINK THIS IS IT! CONSUELA WITH THE COVER ON JALYN!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!-
James Peters: JALYN JUST BARELY GETS THE SHOULDER UP! JALYN IS SOMEHOW STILL IN THIS MATCH, HOW!? CONSUELA NOW BACKING UP, WAITING FOR JALYN TO GET BACK UP, AND I DON’T HAVE ANY IDEA HOW JALYN MANAGED TO EVEN KICK OUT OF THAT, BUT THIS MIGHT ALL BE OVER NOW! JALYN IS CRAWLING TOWARDS THE ROPES, AND NOW HE USES THEM TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! IS THIS IT!? JALYN TURNING AROUND, RIGHT INTO THE KNEE OF DEATH!! THE RUNNING KNEE- DOESN’T CONNECT!
Rich Russillo: JALYN SIDE STEPPED THE KNEE, AND THAT ALLOWED ANDREA VALENTINE, WHO SEEMS TO HAVE GOTTEN BACK UP, TO GRAB CONSUELA BY THE LEGS AND PULL HER OUT OF THE RING! ANDREA WITH A HUGE FOREARM TO CONSUELA! ANDREA NOW SLAMMING CONSUELA’S HEAD DOWN ON THE APRON! ANDREA GRABBING CONSUELA NOW, AND SHE SENDS HER MIDSECTION FIRST RIGHT INTO THE CORNER OF OUR COMMENTARY TABLE! CONSUELA IS IN TROUBLE NOW, BUT WAIT A SECOND! JALYN CHARGING IN NOW, SUICIDE DI- NO! ANDREA HIT JALYN WITH AN ELBOW RIGHT BEFORE HE COULD GO THROUGH THE ROPES, AND NOW SHE PULLS HIM OUT OF THE RING WITH A SUPLEX-
Persephone: The suplex doesn’t connect. Jalyn landed on his feet, and instead hit Andrea with an atrociously looking neckbreaker. Wow that was ugly, how is this match not over yet? None of these three people can wrestle.
James Peters: But they’re all of the Champions Voltage has?
Persephone: Well clearly they shouldn’t be because they all suck. Jalyn now is grabbing Consuela in a front facelock, but Consuela lifts Jalyn up before dropping him onto the apron. Jalyn landed on his feet there, and he just kicked Consuela in her face-
James Peters: Nope, Consuela caught Jalyn’s leg, AND SHE DROPS HIM RIGHT ONTO THE APRON FACE FIRST! Consuela rolling back into the ring now as Jalyn does the same, AND NOW CONSUELA RUNS THE ROPES WHILE JALYN GETS BACK UP! THE KNEE OF DEATH CONNECTS THIS TIME!! JALYN WAS JUST TURNED INSIDE OUT BY THAT RUNNING KNEE, AND NOW CONSUELA GOES FOR THE COVER! I THINK THIS IS IT! CONSUELA IS GOING TO WIN THE CHAMPION SHOWCASE!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
James Peters: ANDREA JUST PULLED CONSUELA OUT OF THE RING! ANDREA JUST MANAGED TO SAVE THE MATCH BY PULLING CONSUELA OFF OF JALYN AND UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AT THE VERY LAST MOMENT, BUT WAIT! NOW ANDREA IS LOOKING TO PIN JALYN HERSELF! THE COVER BY ANDREA!
ONE! TWO!! THR-
Rich Russillo: JALYN JUST KICKED OUT, AND NOW LOOK! CONSUELA JUST PULLED ANDREA OUT OF THE RING IN RETURN, AND BOTH WOMEN HAVE A SMILE ON THEIR FACE! These two are very close allies but even they know that in a match like this you have to do what you can in order to win! ANDREA NOW WITH A FOREARM! AND A SECOND! AND A THIR- NO! CONSUELA BLOCKED IT! CONSUELA WITH A NOW WITH A KNEE TO ANDREA’S MIDSECTION, AND CONSUELA BRINGS ANDREA TO THE RINGPOST, BUT ANDREA STOPS HERSELF WITH HER FOOT BEFORE DELIVERING A NASTY BACK ELBOW!
Persephone: Both women are tearing each other apart, and I honestly have no idea why. The only person actually in the ring still is Jalyn, and where do you need to be to win the match? In the ring. This is what I don’t understand, these wrestlers are so unnecessary taking their fights outside of the ring, and all that does is make me have to sit here and suffer through all these snoozefests-
James Peters: SUICIDE DIVE BY JALYN- NO! BOTH WOMEN CAUGHT JALYN, AND NOW THEY GO FOR A- DOUBLE DDT BY JALYN GARCIA!! JALYN JUST HIT BOTH WOMEN WITH A TORNADO DDT, AND I THINK NOW HE HAS AN IDEA, BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH I LIKE IT! JALYN IS CLEARING UP OUR COMMENTARY TABLE, AND USUALLY THAT NEVER MEANS ANYTHING GOOD! JALYN GRABBING CONSUELA, AND HE SLAMS HER FACE ONTO THE TABLE BEFORE LAYING HER ON TOP OF IT! JALYN NOW GRABBING ANDREA, AND HE PUTS HER ON TOP OF CONSUELA! WHAT IS JALYN THINKING!?
Rich Russillo: I THINK I KNOW WHAT HE’S THINKING AND I DON’T LIKE IT ONE BIT! JALYN IS CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE, MEANWHILE BOTH OF THE WOMEN ON OUR TABLE HAVE YET TO MOVE! JALYN IS IN POSITION, IS HE REALLY GONNA DO IT!? OH MY GOD, KINGS REGNUM!!! KINGS REGNUM THROUGH THE TABLE!!! JALYN JUST PUT HIMSELF THROUGH BOTH THE INTERWIRE AND EAW CHAMPION! ALL THREE COMPETITORS ARE DOWN AND IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE ANY OF THEM HAVE ANY CHANCE OF GETTING BACK UP AND INTO THE RING TO FINISH THE MATCH!!
Persephone: What was the point? These people are all so stupid, why would Jalyn do that to himself? Now nobody is getting up, and at this point we probably won’t even have a winner, not that I care. This is why I wish I could’ve just skipped this match. It was always just one big waste of time. The referee is beginning to count now, and I’m at least guessing that whoever can make it back into the ring before ten is the winner.
Referee: One!… Two!..
James Peters: Normally there are no count outs in a triple threat, but this is what it’s come down to when none of the competitors are able to clearly continue.
Referee: Three!… Four!… Five!
James Peters: All three competitors laid out here as Jalyn rolls off of Consuela, and- wait a second. Rolls off of Consuela?
Rich Russillo: Wasn’t Andrea on top of her?
Referee: Six!… Seven!… Eight!
James Peters: OH MY GOD, LOOK AT THAT! ANDREA IS CRAWLING TOWARDS THE RING, AND I DON’T THINK JALYN HIT HER! I THINK ANDREA GOT OUT OF THE WAY OF THE PHOENIX SPLASH BEFORE IT COULD CONNECT, BUT WE COULDN’T SEE IT THANKS TO JALYN AND CONSUELA BLOCKING OUR VIEW! ANDREA IS GONNA MAKE IT BACK INTO THE RING!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA USING THE STEPS TO HELP HER PULL HERSELF UP ONTO THE APRON, AND OH MY GOD SHE’S GONNA TAKE IT! ANDREA IS GONNA WIN! THE OTHER TWO ARE JUST BARELY WAKING UP!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… The EAW Champion, AAAANNNNNDDDRRRREEEEAAAAAA VVAAAAAAAAALLLEEEENNNNTTIIIIIIIINNEEE!!!!!!!
James Peters: Wow! How did Andrea manage to pull that off!? All three of these competitors were giving this match their all, so you have to give them all credit for their performances tonight, but can we just talk about that match ending!? Jalyn Garcia is a mad man, and he just threw caution to the wind and we thought be put both Andrea and Consuela through the table with the Kings Regnum, but it turns out Andrea moved at the last moment!
Rich Russillo: You have to admire the fight all three of these amazing Champions put on for us. They’ve already proven time and time again why they deserve the titles they’re holding, and tonight was just another example of Voltage Elitists proving they’re the best EAW has to offer. I honestly believe anyone could have won that match, but in the end it’s our EAW Champion that takes this one home. Congratulations Andrea!
James Peters: Definitely huge congratulations to Andrea, but of course there’s nothing for Jalyn or Consuela to be disappointed about, although I’m sure both of them understand that already. All three competitors put everything they had into this match, and Andrea barely scraped this victory. Stuff like this is why Andrea is the EAW Champion, but tonight has also shown us that the New Breed Champion and the Interwire Champion are two of Voltage’s best Elitists on the roster. What a match to close out Voltage!
Persephone: Anyways bye. I’m outta here.
(‘Roll With Me’ hits, and Andrea takes a few moments to catch her breath before using the ropes to pull herself back to her feet. She allows the referee to raise her arm, before handing her back her EAW Championship. It’s clear that everything that happened during that match has taken its toll on Andrea as she is barely able to stand, but after taking a moment to rest and process everything that happened in that match, she finally climbs up to the middle turnbuckle and raises up the EAW Championship as Voltage fades out for the final time.)
