(EAW intro plays.)
(Recap of last week’s Voltage is shown. The recaps shows Connor Ryan picking up his first win in EAW as a tag match turned into a fatal four way. The recap transitions into Charlie Marr and Malcolm Jones’ war of words as their rivalry heats up as we get closer to Pain for Pride. The recap transitions then to Jack Ripley picking up an impressive win gaining momentum to Cash in the Vault, before Ms. Extreme made her presence known making a statement of her own standing tall after the match against MITSUBACHI, Ripley, and Dray Fontana. The recap transitions into small clips of all Cash in the Vault competitors giving their reasons why they’re walking out with the briefcase at Pain for Pride. The recap transitions into Limmy winning his match via DQ sending Grand Athletes to Pain for Pride to participate in the Unified Tag Title match, with Rex looking on with a smile ringside. The recap transitions to Maxwell interrupting Cameron Clark and Cole Smith and taking them both out staking his claim on why he’s gonna win the 24/7 battle royal. Cepheus attacks him and stands tall. The recap transitions into Shawn Sturgis punching his ticket to Pain for Pride to be the Voltage representative in the New Breed Fatal Four Way match. The recap then transitions to Terry Chambers defeating SEBAS to earn an opportunity at the Interwire Title at Pain for Pride. Consuela Rose Ava comes out and the two stare down as Consuela holds her title high. The recap transitions to Dr. Bethany Blue picking up an impressive win against a game Seth Osiris picking up momentum going into her clash with Alexis Chambers at Pain for Pride. The recap transitions to Charlie Marr destroying Cuda likely ending his career in their match, sending a clear message to Malcolm Jones using a barbed wire golf club and crowbar as weapons. The recap transitions to Rex defeating new Pain for Pride opponent Mark Macias. The recap transitions to the main event where Andrea Valentine defeated a game Maxwell.)
(The camera then transitions into the limited capacity EAW Performance Center where the entire place is lit up in yellow and gold colors. The limited crowd is cheering.)
(The camera pans to commentators desk where James and Rich are all smiles while Persephone is on her phone scrolling with earbuds in. She’s wearing a #Rexy2Belts black crop top with hearts all over the shirt.)
James Peters: WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN TO THE SEASON FINALE OF SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE!! What a season it has been, and tonight, we’re not only prepping for Pain for Pride, but we’re taking a trip down memory lane with some of Voltage’s best matches throughout the season!
Rich Russillo: Right you are, what a season it’s been and what a slate Voltage has for Pain for Pride, and tonight is our final stop! Not only are we taking a trip down memory lane with Voltage rewind, but we’re gonna hear from Malcolm Jones! We’re also gonna have a huge tag team match tonight involving four competitors in the Specialists Scramble, while Kensingten and Sierra Bradford join us on commentary! And of course, we’re gonna hear from Andrea and Rex one final time as they exchange words one last time before they clash for the EAW Championship in Philadelphia! It all comes your way tonight in the season 13 finale of Voltage!
(Persephone removes her earbuds.)
Persephone: DID I HEAR REX’S NAME?!?!
Rich Russillo: How the hell did you hear that with music blaring?!
Persephone: None of your business.
(“Natural” by Imagine Dragons hits as Terry Chambers walks out from behind the curtain to a loud ovation of cheers from the limited crowd. He’s wearing casual street attire with a “Barbaric Carnivore” t-shirt. Terry looks a bit thinner, as there were rumors he was losing some weight. He walks down to the ring and rolls inside and asks for a microphone. A few members of the crowd are cheering for Terry and he waits a second before speaking.)
Terry Chambers: Well, expected the unexpected right? I never in a million years thought I would be fighting for the Interwire Championship…as the challenger in back to back years at Pain for Pride. I won that championship last year, and everybody knows how important that moment was to me. All the blood, sweat, and tears over five long years paying off on the grandest stage. All those times I just wanted to give up when I was down in rock bottom but that fire deep down just wouldn’t let me because of a moment like that. Everything I went through was worth it. I capitalized on the moment, but I’m not afraid to admit I crumbled under the pressure of finally being a champion when the dust settled after Pain for Pride. People said “good for him, he won’t last long as champion” and it sucks to say, but right now, they were right at the time. I look back on my first Interwire reign and so many times I wish I could do things differently, but I can’t. I barely made it past 1 defense with the only defense being Korey Gaines, and I lost the title to a movie character rather than a wrestler and I got too caught up in my emotions that I let my first title reign slip away. I told myself if I were ever given the chance to rectify my first ever title reign, I would do it without hesitation, and here I am. I can guarantee I’m gonna do everything in my power to make it right. I started off by earning my title match rather than it being handed to me like it was by Hawk last year. I had so many setbacks throughout the year including losing the rematch at Wicked Games, Charlie Marr getting the better of me on several occasions when I was the better competitor, losing to Lars Grier of all people, twice. And of course, the big one, when I threw Andrea into a successful title defense at King Of Elite. That’s not even all of em, and I knew these setbacks were only going to hold me back for so long. I thought of what to do next, and I found myself full circle back at my first championship, the Interwire Title…where it all started to go downhill for me this past season.
(The crowd cheers loudly as Terry takes a second to reflect on his thoughts.)
Persephone: This isn’t Rexy, back in the earbuds go!
Terry Chambers: It clicked with me that if I wanna continue to move forward, I gotta go back to a chapter in my career I thought was finished, and touch up on a few things. My first championship reign in five years I can’t let slide like that. I’m more than excited for the challenge, but I don’t think my opponent is though. Last year at Pain for Pride, it was personal for me because of the hell Drake King put me through almost taking not only my career, but my life. You don’t know how it feels to be laying in a hospital bed, and when you look next to you, you see your 3 year old daughter in tears. It hurt. Drake said he would do it again if he could. I showed I would be nobody’s sacrifice or symbol, and I came back and took his title and was the main factor driving Round Table apart. It’s a bit different this year. There’s no animosity or personal hatred involved, it’s all built on respect. That’s how I see it, which I don’t think Consuela does as she hasn’t talked with me all week. Her friendship means a lot to me but I’m not gonna back out or feel bad about accepting the invitation to compete in the mini tournament a few weeks ago. Just like she said, I would hate to throw away a friendship over a championship. I’m only gonna say it one last time, it’s not personal. I’m walking in and becoming a two time Interwire Champion and righting a wrong in my career, that’s it. Consuela knows me well enough to know it’s nothing but respect from me and if she feels the same way, that’s great. It’s gonna be a battle between two top elitists on this brand who want to be the best. But only one person’s walking out as Interwire Champion…and that’s ME.
(“We Appreciate Power” by Grimes hits as Consuela Rose Ava walks out onto the stage wearing designer jeans and a red blouse with heels. She has the Interwire Championship draped over her right shoulder as she begins walking to the ring. Terry folds his arm as he leans against the ropes inside the ring. Consuela enters the ring, brushes her hair to her side, and puts the microphone up to her lips.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Aren’t we more than ‘just friends’ though?
(Terry looks around right and left as he didn’t expect that to be the first thing out of Consuela’s mouth. Before Terry can even think of a response, Consuela begins speaking again.)
Consuela Rose Ava: Forget it, look, I understand where you’re coming from. I remember being emotional when you won the title, and I remember how broken you were when you lost it the way you did. I can understand wanting to rectify a mistake, I’m no stranger to it myself when my first Specialists reign turned out to be a dud but I had a better one in my next one. But you gotta just know this is hard for me. I am a fighter, and a hell of a tough person who swings at whatever is pitched at her, but I don’t know how to feel about facing you. Forming a bond with you has been one of the highlights not only this season, but maybe my career. I’ve been backstabbed and betrayed many times throughout my life, but I finally felt I found a true friend who knows the struggles and pain I go through both professionally and personally. Our conversations about our careers, being on the road all the time and missing watching children grow up in front of our very eyes. This season has been total hell for me and winning this Interwire Title made it worthwhile, and it sucks having to think of someone you’re really close to wanting to rip it all away from you. I’m just afraid to go back to that dark place of trusting someone only to get backstabbed and then for them to take away my symbol of hard work.
(Terry bites his bottom lip as he thinks of what to say.)
Terry Chambers: Listen Suela, you should know me better than that. I’m not Lars Grier who attacks you from behind to challenge you because I need some quick clout, I’m not Korey Gaines who superkicks you like a coward to challenge you. I EARNED my shot like how a true competitor should. I’ve already stated I wouldn’t wanna do anything to risk the friendship we have, but I also told people this a long time ago….if I were to EVER be given a chance at redeeming myself with the Interwire Championship….I was gonna take it. If you were me in my position and I was the champion, it likely wouldn’t be any different with you and I wouldn’t hold it against you at all for it. I would welcome the challenge because our last one on one match never finished did it? That snake Lars Grier interrupted and we never got a victor from it. There was no animosity in that match between us was there? It was all about the best competitor winning which should be no different at Pain for Pride.
(Consuela looks up from the mat at Terry. There was an undeniable spark between them, one even Consuela is ready to just admit, but Terry ain’t too sure as he still might be affected from his divorce less than a year ago. Terry and Consuela make eye contact before Terry takes a quick glance at the Interwire Championship, Consuela notices this.)
Consuela Rose Ava: I need to know something. Did you only get close to me to get to this Interwire Championship? I did confide in you my plan to win the Interwire Championship with my contract.
(Terry can’t help but shake his head at the accusation.)
Terry Chambers: Suela, when you told me you planned to pursue the Interwire Title, this was shortly before King Of Elite took place, I was competing in a primetime EAW Championship match, remember? The Interwire Championship was in my rear view mirror and wasn’t even on my mind. I was focused on becoming EAW Champion and walking into Pain for Pride with that title. Then when you won the title at Grand Rampage….I was so focused on winning Grand Rampage, the Interwire Championship again wasn’t on my mind. I helped you take out Corvus and win the title and I was truly happy for you. I hugged you after you won the title and I meant it when I said I was happy for you. Later that night when I came up short in Grand Rampage, my world came crumbling down. I looked at my options and they all led me to where it started going wrong for me, the Interwire Title. Camille warned me this might happen if I went after the Interwire Title, but I’m doing everything in my power to say this isn’t personal what-so-ever. I would have gone after whoever was the champion no matter if it was Bethany, Camille, or anybody else. You being champion has nothing to do with it. It sucks that it’s you who’s the champion Suela, but I’m doing what I gotta do. For the last time, it’s not personal. I would like nothing more than for our friendship to continue on after this is over, but if not, I guess I burned a bridge just because I put my career in the best spot to succeed.
(Consuela doesn’t know what to think. She nods her head and shrugs in response.)
Consuela Rose Ava: I don’t know what to think, but I do know that you’re gonna have to kill me to take this title from me. I went through hell and back all season to win this, and I’ll be damned if I lose it this soon after making a promise to be one of the greats to hold this title. You know first hand how important that goal is to me. I didn’t go through all that bullshit all season to just have my season end in disappointment, nobody, not even you is taking my symbol of hard work away from me. You know what, bring it Terry! Sometimes you find out more things about yourselves going up against people you care about rather than your enemies. We’ll see what we bring out of each other. Just one thing, the ball’s in your court when this match is over and you’re once again left to pick up the pieces of a failed opportunity. Bring your best and then some, because I’m not letting go of this title so easily!
Terry Chambers: Look forward to it.
(The camera fades to black as the two stare at one another.)
(Voltage returns from commercial break with Gavin McArdle and Komatsu Ogawa standing in the ring with ‘Heartbeats’ by King 810 playing through the speakers. That wouldn’t last long, however, it wouldn’t last long. ‘Higher’ by Kill The Ideal replaces the song as Conor Ryan slowly walks out onto the stage and approaches the ring)
Bella Braxton: Introducing third…Hailing from Brighton, England. Weighing in at 198 pounds…THE REAPER, COOONOOOOOR RYAAAAAAN!
James Peters: In the short time he’s been here, Conor Ryan has made a fantastic first impression. No matter who he’s been up against, he’s always been able to hang with the best!
Persephone: Looks like a nerd. When will Sexy Rexy be out here?
(Conor Ryan slides into the ring before swiftly rising to his feet. He’d get in Ogawa and Gavin’s faces, and they’d begin to argue. ‘Bow Down’ by I Prevail would kick in as Seth Osiris walks onto the stage.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing fourth…From the Swamps of Louisiana, weighing in at 212 pounds…SEEEEEEEEETH OOSIRIIIIIIIIIIIS!!!
Rich Russillo: Seth Osiris is another guy I like, but in this match I don’t think he has a chance at winning considering we have two of the best guys on the roster competing too!
Persephone: Wait, Rex?!?!?
Rich Russillo: …No.
(Seth Osiris hops onto the apron and enters the ring. He pushes Conor Ryan out of the way and climbs the turnbuckles. His theme would fade out and be replaced by ‘Slide’ by Calvin Harris. Maxwell walks onto the stage with a smirk on his face.)
Rich Russillo: Here’s my guy! Week after week he’s been racking up wins, though last week he was only just defeated. Maxwell has the most potential on the roster, and I’m sure one day he’ll be a world champion!
Bella Braxton: Introducing fifth…He is Prince Wealthy, hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada…MMMMAAAAAXWEELLLLLL!!!
(Maxwell reaches the end of the ramp before climbing onto the apron. He’d look at all of his opponents with a smirk, until he notices Gavin. He’d get visibly angry, and wait on the apron. ‘Mob Ties’ by Drake would interrupt Maxwell’s theme as Cepheus St. Claire walks onto the stage.)
James Peters: Here comes, well, one of the most controversial wrestlers today. Debuting after being released from prison, Cepheus St. Claire incorporates his…Violent nature into wrestling, I guess.
Rich Russillo: Pfft, he was probably framed! This man doesn’t remind me of a criminal, he reminds me of a champion!
Bella Braxton: Introducing sixth…Hailing from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada…THE TREACHEROUS ONE…CEEEEEPHEUS ST. CLAAAAAAAAAIRE!!!!!!!!!
(Cepheus slides into the ring and starts pushing all of his opponents around. He’d slap Gavin McArdle before they’re all separated by the referee and pushed into their corners.)
James Peters: The match hasn’t even started and tension is rising! All of these men want some momentum before the 24/7 Battle Royal, and I can already tell they’re going to rip and tear their way through each other to gain a head up!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The bell rings, and all six competitors instantly go at it! Gavin McArdle and Maxwell are brawling in the corner trading punch after punch. Komatsu Ogawa and Conor Ryan are sharing blows in the center of the ring! Cepheus St. Claire and Seth Osiris are grappling on the ropes, this is mayhem! And now, look at Ogawa! He has a grip on Conor Ryan’s throat, and he throws him into Seth and Cepheus! All three men go tumbling down! Ogawa starts to celebrate, but don’t get too happy because look behind him! Gavin McArdle and Maxwell join forces with a lariat to the back of Ogawa’s head! Unlike their debut, they’re actually teaming up…Nevermind I spoke too soon, they’re back to fighting!
Rich Russillo: Maxwell hits that idiot Gavin in the jaw with a forearm strike, and it almost knocks him down! Maxwell has this in the bag, as he runs the rop- DROPKICK FROM GAVIN MCARDLE! IT KNOCKS MAXWELL DOWN, AND GAVIN IS THE LAST ONE STANDING! BOOOOOO!
James Peters: Gavin McArdle is looking over to Conor Ryan, who’s only just standing up. He could’ve sustained a head injury with the way he landed earlier. Gavin’s walking towards Conor, and he hits him with a punch to the jaw! Ryan is sent backwards, connecting with the corner. Oh god…He’s bleeding! Gavin McArdle struck him in the mouth, and I think part of the punch connected with his nose because he’s bleeding!
Rich Russillo: Conor’s nose is going to be a main target for the rest of the match, and the match has only just started! Gavin’s running to the opposite corner, what exactly is he looking for here? He’s running back…CONOR BOUNCES OUT OF THE CORNER WITH A PK! A PENALTY KICK TO THE CHEST OF GAVIN MCARDLE SENDS HIM STRAIGHT DOWN TO THE GROUND! A QUICK COVER!
James Peters: OH LOOK AT THIS, MAXWELL HAS A HOLD OF CONOR RYAN’S ANKLE! THE ANKLE LOCK IS ETCHED IN, AND CONOR RYAN HAS NOWHERE TO ESCAPE! COULD THIS BE IT ALREADY!??!!? WAIT A SECOND, LOOK BEHIND MAXWELL! KOMATSU OGAWA GRABS MAXWELL BY HIS HEAD, REAR NAKED CHOKE! A REAR NAKED CHOKE IS APPLIED WHILST MAXWELL HAS THE ANKLE LOCK ON CONOR RYAN!! WILL ANY OF THESE GUYS TAP?!?!? NOW IT’S SETH’S TURN, HE’S DOWN ON HIS KNEES BEHIND OGAWA! HEEL HOOK! HE HAS A HEEL HOOK ON OGAWA, BUT HE’S STILL ABLE TO STAND! MY WORD! I SENSE A SUBMISSION TRAIN COMING! GAVIN MCARDLE IS BACK ON HIS FEET, AND HE’S WALKING OVER TO THE TRAIN…
Rich Russillo: AHAHAHAA! HE JUST PUSHED THEM ALL OVER! ALL OF THE SUBMISSIONS HAVE BEEN LET GO, AND GAVIN IS ONCE AGAIN LEFT STANDING!
James Peters: BUT LOOK WHO’S RISING! MAXWELL IS BEHIND GAVIN, THE MAN WHO HATES GAVIN MORE THAN ANYONE! MAXWELL RUNS UP AND LIFTS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE! IF THIS WAS THE BATTLE ROYAL, HE’D HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED RIGHT THERE! WAIT WHAT IS MAXWELL DOING???!?!
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD HE’S GOING TO THE TOP ROPE…OH MY, MOONSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE! MAXWELL AND GAVIN ARE BOTH WIPED OUT IN FRONT OF US!
Persephone: They almost hit me!
Rich Russillo: I could kiss it be-
Persephone: They didn’t hit me, thank god!
James Peters: Divert your attention back into the ring, because Conor Ryan is on the top rope looking down at Komatsu Ogawa! What could he be going fo- Oh no! Seth Osiris and Cepheus St. Claire are climbing up top as well, all at different corners! They’re all looking down at Ogawa…TRIPLE SPLASH! ALL THREE HIT A SPLASH ON OGAWA AT THE SAME TIME! CEPHEUS GOES FOR THE COVER…NO SETH GOES FOR THE COVER…NO, CONOR RYAN GOES FOR THE COVER! NONE OF THEM CAN DECIDE WHO GETS THE COVER! CONOR RYAN IS THE FIRST TO STAND UP, SUPERKICK TO SETH! NO, SETH CATCHES HIS FOOT AND THROWS IT INTO CEPHEUS’ FACE! CEPHEUS FALLS DOWN, NO THE ROPES CATCH HIM! BE BOUNCES FORWARD…SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK TO CONOR RYAN! AND SETH OSIRIS CONTINUES THE SEQUENCE WITH A DISCUS LARIAT TO CEPHEUS! SETH LOOKS FOR A COVE- TORNADO KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! CONOR RYAN WITH A TORNADO KICK TO THE HEAD OF SETH OSIRIS! NOW ALL THREE MEN ARE DOWN!
Rich Russillo: NOT SO FAST! MAXWELL AND GAVIN MCARDLE BOTH ROLL INTO THE RING TOGETHER! BOTH OF THEM REFUSE TO STAY DOWN AT EACH OTHER’S OFFENSE! THEY NOTICE ONE ANOTHER, AND START BRAWLING ONCE AGAIN! MAXWELL WITH A CHOP TO GAVIN! GAVIN RESPONDS WITH A FOREARM TO THE CHIN! MAXWELL WITH ANOTHER CHOP! GAVIN SEEMS TO BE DONE, NO! LOW BLOW! A KICK TO THE BALLS, AND IT’S ALL LEGAL! THERE’S NO DISQUALIFICATION IN MULTI-MAN MATCHES! MAXWELL HOLDS HIS CROTCH AND FALLS OVER! THAT’S DIRTY, SHAME ON YOU! GAVIN COVERS!
James Peters: SETH OSIRIS BREAKS UP THE COVER WITH A SINGLE FOOT STOMP TO THE BACK OF GAVIN’S NECK! HE LIFTS HIM UP AND PUTS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS…DEAD AT DAWN!!!! NO, GAVIN MANAGES TO SLIP OFF JUST IN TIME! HE HAS A HOLD OF HIS WAIST, IRELAND’S CALL- SETH COUNTERS WITH A HURRICAINRANA! GAVIN ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!
Persephone: Is the match over now?
James Peters: What? No.
Rich Russillo: Look in the corner! The Treacherous One is up on his feet, and looking towards Seth Osiris! He runs forward…SHADY ENDING! NO, SETH OSIRIS PUSHES HIM FORWARD INTO A BIG BOOT FROM MAXWELL, BUT CEPHEUS MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN TIME! THE BIG BOOT HITS SETH STRAIGHT IN THE NOSE! MAXWELL TURNS AROUND…HEADBUTT! A HEADBUTT KNOCKS HIM DOWN! CEPHEAUS ST. CLAIRE GRABS MAXWELL BY HIS HAIR AND PICKS HIM UP, BEFORE PLACING HIM IN BETWEEN HIS LEGS…OH MY, SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! HE TRANSITIONS INTO A COVER, THIS COULD BE IT FOR MAXWELL!
James Peters: WAIT A SECOND, CONOR RYAN PICKS ST. CLAIRE OUT OF THE PINFALL! HE PUTS HIM IN PRIME POSITION FOR THE BRIGHTON DESTROYER, AND IT CONNECTS!!!! CONOR COULD WIN HERE, AND WHAT A HUGE WIN THAT WOULD BE! CONOR COVERS!
Rich Russillo: ST. CLAIRE KICKS OUT! HE KICKED OUT OF THE BRIGHTON DESTROYER AT THE LAST SECOND! HE REFUSES TO GIVE UP, EVEN AFTER BEING SPIKED ON HIS HEAD HE MANAGES TO STAY IN THE MATCH! CONOR RYAN IS PISSED, AND NOW HE’S CLIMBING TO HIS FEET USING THE ROPES! Komatsu Ogawa is doing the same in the other corner, but the difference is he sees Conor, but Conor doesn’t see him. Conor turns around, OGAWA RUNS TOWARDS HIM…MASAKARI! THE RUNNING LARIAT TO CONOR RYAN, BUT RYAN MANAGES TO DUCK! CONOR RUNS TO THE ROPES…SPRINGBOARD BACK ELBOW TO OGAWA! NO, OGAWA CATCHES HIM! BROKEN FANG! THE GERMAN LIFT DRAGON SUPLEX CONNECTS, DRIVING CONOR RYAN INTO THE MAT!
James Peters: THIS COULD HAVE TAKEN CONOR RYAN OUT COMPLETELY, AND I’M NOT SURE IF HE’LL BE ABLE TO RECOVER! OGAWA ISN’T DONE, HOWEVER, AS HE GRIPS CONOR BY HIS HAIR AND PULLS HIM TO HIS FEET! HE’S RUNNING THE ROPES…MASAKARIIIIII!!!! IT CONNECTS, THIS COULD BE ALL OVER!!!! OH MY GOD, OGAWA’S GONNA WIN! INTO THE COVER!!!
James Peters: THREE- WAIT WHAT!?!?!? MAXWELL JUST BROKE UP THE PIN WITH A PHEONIX SPLASH! HE’S GONNA STEAL IT, AS HE COVERS CONOR RYAN INSTEAD!!!
James Peters: IT’S OVE- NO! SETH OSIRIS BROKE THE COVER BY PULLING MAXWELL OFF! MAXWELL IS FURIOUS, AS HE ALMOST HAD IT WON!!! MAXWELL GETS UP AND SLAPS SETH, RIGHT IN THE FACE! THIS ONLY ANGERS SETH, WHO STRIKES BACK WITH A THUNDEROUS SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE! MAXWELL FALLS DOWN TO HIS KNEES! I KNOW WHAT SETH IS LOOKING FOR…YAKUZA KICK TO THE BACK OF MAXWELL’S HEAD! MAXWELL IS KNOCKED OUT COLD!
Rich Russillo: NOT LIKE THIS! NOT LIKE THIS…NO, HE’S GETTING MAXWELL BACK UP. HE’S DESPERATE FOR THE WIN, I CAN TELL! NO…GOD’S GREAT GRIMACE!!!! IT CONNECTS, AND MAXWELL IS OUT COLD! COVER! PLEASE KICK OUT, MAXWELL!!
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD, THE PINFALL IS BROKEN UP BY ST. CLAIRE WITH A FROG SPLASH TO SETH’S BACK!! ST. CLAIRE RISES TO HIS FEET AND GRABS SETH, HE DRIVES HIS SHOULDER STRAIGHT INTO THE RING POST! SETH OSIRIS IS OUT OF THE RING, AND THE ONLY TWO STANDING ARE GAVIN AND CEPHEUS! BOTH MEN WALK TO THE CENTER AND BEGIN TO TRADE STRIKES! FOREARM AFTER FOREARM AFTER FOREARM, THIS MATCH WENT FROM A WRESTLING MATCH TO AN MMA FIGHT IN THE MATTER OF SECONDS! WHICH ONE OF THESE TWO MEN WILL BE THE FIRST TO FALL!??!
James Peters: BOTH OF THESE MEN ARE SHOWCASING THEIR BRUTALITY BY USING THEIR STRIKES TO TRY AND KNOCK EACH OTHER DOWN, BUT NEITHER *ARE* GOING DOWN! THE STRIKES ARE SLOWING DOWN, AND BOTH OF THEM ARE ON JELLY LEGS BUT THEY REFUSE TO BACK DOWN. THEY KEEP GOING, AND GOING AND…THEY’RE BOTH ON THEIR KNEES NOW, BUT THEY ARE STILL STRIKING! GAVIN MCARDLE WITH A BOXING PUNCH TO CEPHEUS KNOCKS HIM DOWN…BUT HE’S SITTING BACK UP, AND HITS A PUNCH HIMSELF! THESE TWO MEN ARE GIVING IT THEIR ALL!
Rich Russillo: I DON’T THINK WE’RE GONNA FIND OUT WHO’S THE TOUGHEST, BECAUSE CONOR RYAN IS BACK IN THE RING! HE RUNS THE ROPES AND HITS A DOUBLE SLIDING DROPKICK TO BOTH MEN’S HEADS! CONOR GETS BACK UP, AND GRABS CEPHEUS! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE FINISH HERE…PARADOX! NO, ST. CLAIRE SPINS OUT OF IT AND COUNTERS WITH A STEP UP ENZUIGIRI! CONOR RYAN FALLS TO HIS KNEES, AS CEPHEUS STANDS BACK UP. HE PLACES HIS HEAD UNDER HIS ARM…BRAINBUSTER! IT CONNECTS! CEPHEUS HAS THIS IN THE BAG AS HE ROLLS INTO A COVER!!!
James Peters: CONOR RYAN KICKS OUT, JUST IN TIME! I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS OVER FOR A SECOND THERE, BUT CONOR RYAN JUST DISPLAYED TREMENDOUS RESILIENCE! Conor Ryan rolls to the north-east corner, as St. Claire follows him! Cepheus grabs Conor by his leg, but Conor kicks him in the stomach and scurries away. The Treacherous One follows suit, and manages to catch up with Ryan! He grabs him by the hair and lifts him up to his feet. He’s going after his gut, hitting body shot after body shot, punch after punch to wear down his opponent! He stops striking and instead lifts him onto the top rope, this doesn’t look good. Cepheus climbs up also, but Conor tries to fight back with a few punches! Cepheus elbows Conor Ryan, which knocks him backwards! He’s currently lying on the ring post, the only thing that’s stopping him from falling to the outside!
Rich Russillo: Oh look at this, Cepheus has a hold of Conor Ryan’s head! He’s looking for a superplex as both men are getting to their feet! But behind the two, Gavin McArdle and Maxwell are climbing onto the middle rope as they start to hit forearm strikes on Cepheus’ back! This doesn’t look good, not one bit of it! Oh no, Maxwell and Gavin have a grip on Cepheus’ legs as they try and pull him down!
James Peters: Now the other two members are joining in! Seth Osiris and Komatsu Ogawa are coming to the corner also as they put Maxwell and Gavin in powerbomb holds! But Maxwell and Gavin still hold onto Cepheus…NO NO NO! OH MY GOD, TOWER OF DOOM! OGAWA AND OSIRIS POWERBOMB MAXWELL AND GAVIN, WHO IN TURN BACK SUPLEX CEPHEUS WHO BECAUSE OF THAT HITS A SUPERPLEX ONTO CONOR RYAN! ALL SIX MEN CRASH TO THE MAT, AND NONE OF THEM ARE MOVING!!! WHO WILL BE THE FIRST ONE TO RECOVER?!?!?!?!?
Rich Russillo: ALL SIX MEN HAVE BEEN LAID OUT, ALL IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! TWO ARE STARTING TO MOVE! CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE IS MOVING HIS ARM TOWARDS GAVIN MCARDLE, BUT LOOK AT SETH OSIRIS! HE HAS HIS ARM OVER GAVIN! THE REFEREE SLIDES DOWN, FACING CEPHEUS!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: THE MATCH IS OVER, BUT WHO’S THE WINNER??! BY THE LOOKS OF IT, THE REFEREE ONLY NOTICED ST. CLAIRE’S COVER!
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…THE TREACHEROUS ONE, CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE!!!!!
(‘Mob Ties’ by Drake begins to blare through the speakers as the people in the crowd start booing as loud as they can. Cepheus slowly stands up and has his arm raised by the referee until he’s taken out by Seth Osiris from behind.)
James Peters: OH MY! A BITTER OSIRIS KNOCKS THE WINNER ONTO THE GROUND WITH A FOREARM SMASH, WHO ARGUABLY DOESN’T DESERVE THE VICTORY! AND NOW SETH IS REPEATEDLY STOMPING ON CEPHEUS’ CHEST, I CAN’T DECIDE WHETHER THIS IS SORE LOSING OR NOT!
Rich Russillo: HE’S A SORE LOSER, AND THAT’S ALL THERE IS TO IT! CEPHEUS’ ARM WAS RAISED, NOT SETH’S, AND THAT ANGERED HIM TO THE POINT WHERE HE HAD TO ATTACK THIS MAN AFTER THE MATCH HAD ENDED!
James Peters: Let’s not forget, he had his arm over Ogawa! No matter what you argue with, he was in a cover too!
Rich Russillo: That doesn’t matter! Cepheus was noticed, and he wasn’t! He LOST!
James Peters: Yeah, sure, but he got his arm over firs-
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD LOOK BEHIND SETH OSIRIS! MAXWELL IS STOOD WITH A CHAIR! HE DRIVES IT INTO SETH’S BACK AND KNOCKS HIM TO THE GROUND! NOW HE’S HITTING HIS BACK ONCE AGAIN, CHAIR SHOT AFTER CHAIR SHOT! STRAIGHT INTO SETH’S BACK! YOU DESERVE THAT!
Persephone: This was supposed to be over. Can we cut to commercial break?
James Peters: But Maxwell isn’t the last one standing! Conor Ryan appears out of nowhere and dropkicks him in the shoulder! Maxwell slips out of the ring, but he’s not safe…Conor Ryan runs the ropes…TOPE CON HILO! HE WIPES MAXWELL OUT WITH A HUGE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE!!
(Conor Ryan rolls back into the ring and heads to the top rope. He points at himself before Voltage cuts to commercial break.)
(Voltage returns and cuts to the broadcast booth. James Peters smiles into the camera.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, with this season of Voltage coming to a close, we thought we would go back and revisit some of the most memorable matches we’ve had this year. Persephone, Rich, and myself all took time this week to scour through hours of footage and pi-
Persephone: :mjlol: Literally don’t lie. I didn’t watch anything other than Rex McAllister matches so it should be a no brainer as to what I picked.
James Peters (rolling his eyes): We also opened up voting for our fans our first Voltage Rewind match is from the March 29th edition of Voltage. Jalyn Garcia, Dr. Bethany Blue, Raven Roberts, and Charlie Marr squared off against one another in a ladder match for the right to win an ‘Ultimate Opportunity.’ Dr. Blue would come away with the briefcase, which she wasted during her feud with Darcy May Morgan. Nevertheless, it was an incredible match and one of the biggest wins Dr. Blue has had so far.
[SCREEN BAR: SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE – 03/29/2020]
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to the most exciting weekly episodic program in all of EAW. The one, the only, Sunday night Voltage! Coming up next, a bout that is sure to deliver another ring rattling classic, a fatal four way ladder match, between some of Voltage’s hungriest and most eager competitors. From seasoned vets, to exciting up and comers, Raven Roberts faces off against Dr. Betahny Blue, Jalyn Garcia, and Charlie Marr! As if this match wasn’t already a star-studded classic, it’s also for a “Unique Opportunity” to come in the near future!
Rich Russillo: You got that right, Rich! I can’t wait for the match to come, and by the looks of it, this sold out crowd in attendance can’t wait either! We’re looking a fatal four way in which every competitor brings a different skill set to the table, but all with the same goal, to earn that Unique Opportunity, or die trying.
(‘Bad Medicine’ by Bon Jovi begins to play as the faint sound of a heartbeat begins to pulse throughout the arena. A spotlight shines on the stage, shining brightly on Dr. Bethan Blue.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A FATAL FOUUURRRRR WAAAYYYYY, LAAAADDDEEERRRR MAAATTTCCCHHHH! THE WINNER WILL EARN A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY MATCH IN THE NEAR FUTURE!
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF MIAAAMIIIIII, FLOOORIIIDDAAAAA….WEIGHING IN AT 128 POUNDS… THE DOCTOR HERSELF, BETHANNNYYYYYYYY BLUUEEEEEEEEE!!!
James Peters: Bethany Blue is an esteemed physician who tends to look out for the health of her peers, and typically everyone around her. Though her medical knowledge can have a reverse effect at her will. if tested or lacking in prime physical shape, Dr. Blue won’t hesitate to demonstrate why exactly her medical prowess should be understood to the fullest extent!
(Dr. Bethany Blue enters the ring, as ‘Mark My Words’ by Doll Skin begins to play while Raven Roberts appears on stage, waving to the crowd, then her small smile quickly turns to an expression of passionate determination.)
BELLA BRAXTON: INTRODUCING HER OPPONENT, FIRST, WRESTLING OUT OF LOUISVILLE, KENTUUUUCKKKYYYYY….WEIGHING IN AT 139 POUNDS….RAVVVEEEEENNNNNNN “THEEEE HUNTRESSSSSSS” ROBBBERRRTTTSSSS!!!
Rich Russillo: One of the most passionate, focused, and hardworking competitors we’ve ever seen in EAW. A role model if there ever was one. A win here tonight and advancing to the ‘Unique Opportunity’ math would add nicely Raven’s long list of accolades. If there’s anyone with the heart and in ring skill to back up their words, it’s Raven Roberts.
(Raven Roberts enters the ring and nods at Bethany Blue, a sign of respect between the two. ‘Martyr (Waves)’ by Polaris rings throughout the arena as ‘WildHeart’ Jalyn Garcia presents himself to the EAW Universe.)
Bella Braxton: WRESTLING OUT OF SACRAMENTO, CALIFOOORNNIIAAAAA….WEIGHING IN AT 150 POUNDS….JALLLYYYYYNNNNNNN “WILLLDDDDHEEEARRRTTTT” GARCCIIAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Persephone: Certainly the most inexperienced and unseasoned competitor in this match, but quite possibly the hungriest. Jalyn Garcia knows he still has much to prove, and tonight is the perfect opportunity to shoot his name to the top of EAW’s totem pole!
(Jalyn Garcia waves to the crowd and smiles at both Raven and Bethany, though the respect may not be shared with the man soon to enter the ring. ‘It Aint Safe’ by Skepta begins to echo throughout the arena, as Charlie Marr’s malicious and violent presence appears on stage.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING THEIR OPPONENT, WRESTLING OUT LONDON, IN THE UNIITTEEDDDD KINGGDDDOOOMMMMM….WEIGHING IN AT 240 POUNDS…. CHARRRLIIEEEEEEEE “MAAAIIIINNN EEEVVVVVENNNTNTTTTTT” MAAARRRRRRRRR!!!!!
(Charlie Marr rolls in the ring and heads to the only open corner available. With all four competitors in the ring, the match is ready to begin. The referee calls for the timekeeper, signaling for the beginning of the match.)
( DING! DING! DING! )
James Peters: This match is underway as all four competitors eagerly look at each other from their respective corners. In one corner, you’ve got the agile Jalyn Garcia, and in the opposite you have the unpredictable Dr. Bethany Blue. In the other corner, there’s the ruthless Charlie Marr and then the technically proficient Raven Roberts. This is bound to go down in the history books as a classic.
Persephone: MARR LANDS A BOOT ON GARCIA AND IT NOW BEGINS!! Marr unleashes a barrage of stomps onto Garcia into the corner as Blue and Roberts exchange strikes on the other side of the ring! Roberts backs Blue into the ropes while MARR COMES OFF THE CORNER AND DRIVES A KNEE INTO GARCIA!!
Rich Russillo: NOBODY’S HOME AS MARR DRIVES HIS KNEE UNPROTECTED INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! He holds his knee in pain as Bethany Irish whips Roberts into the ropes. Roberts flips over her, sending her down with a sunset flip, but Bethany rolls onto her feet and goes for the superkick! TJD!!
James Peters: Roberts ducks the TJD attempt, grabbing and bringing her down into a school boy! She maintains the school boy as she gets onto her feet and DEADLIFTS THE “DOCTOR” ONTO HER FEET!! UH OH!! BUT BLUE MANAGES TO GET OUT OF HOLD AND ROCK “THE BIRD OF PREY” WITH THE TJD SUERKICK!
Rich Russillo: Roberts ricochets off the ropes and REBOUNDS INTO BLUE! BLUE CIRCLES AROUND AND PLANTS RAVEN WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!! Roberts rolls away as Garcia gets into the fold and springboards backwards off the bottom ropes! SPRINGBOARD STUNNER!! NO!! BLUE GRABS HIS HEAD IN MID AIR AND CONNECTS WITH THE REVERSE DDT! GRADE C2 DDT CONNECTS AS THAT SENDS GARCIA REELING AWAY!
Persephone: MARR SMASHES A TRASH CAN ONTO THE BACK OF THE “DOCTOR”!! Blue screeches in pain as she goes down onto the ground. Marr grabs the trash can lid and DRIVES IT ACROSS THE CROWN OF RAVEN ROBERTS! “The Libertine” hits anything that moves as he throws the lid away and pulls Garcia up to his feet. He kicks the gut and hooks both arms. THE QUEEN IS DEAD!
Rich Russillo: NO!! GARCIA SHOVES HIM AWAY AND FLOORS HIM WITH A STEP-UP ENZIGURI!! WHAT A KICK TO THE EAR AS GARCIA NOW GETS UP TO HIS FEET!! Marr returns to his feet while Garcia runs and circles around him! HE JUMPS UP! INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER!
James Peters: MARR AVOIDS THE LEG SCISSORS AND DRIVES HIM DOWN WITH A DOUBLE KNEE BACKSTABBER! Garcia goes bouncing several feet into the air from that backstabber as Marr exits the ring and brings the first ladder into the fold. He slides it into the ring and DRIVES IT INTO THE CHEST OF GARCIA!!
Persephone: That ladder brings out the wind out of the chest of the “Wildheart” as Marr traffics his attention onto Roberts and Blue. HE DRIVES IT INTO BLUE!!! BUT, SHE DUCKS THE LADDER, GOES AROUND AND CONNECTS WITH A SUPERKICK CLEAN TO THE JAW!! MARR CONTINUES TO HAVE THE LADDER IN HIS GRASP AS HE IS ROCKED.
Rich Russillo: ROBERTS LEAPS OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND SOARS!!! MISSSSSSILLLLLEEE DROPPPPKICKKKK!!!! Marr reels out of the ring and leaves the ladder into the ring. BLUE CHARGES INTO RAVEN!! RAVEN SIDE STEPS HALFWAY AND BLUE GOES OVER THE TOP ROPE!!
James Peters: Blue splatters onto the ringside floor as Roberts knows what she has to do!! SHE DONS A SMILE ON HER FACE AS SHE SPRINTS THROUGH THE RING!!! SUIIICIDDDEEE DIVEE!!!
Persephone: NO!!! JALYN GARCIA OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO THE FACE!! THAT FLOORS THE “BIRD OF PREY” AS GARCIA SIGNALS THAT IT’S HIS TURN AS HE RUNS THE ROPES HIMSELF!! SUIIICCIDDE DIVVE SOMMERSAULLLTTTTT!!!!!! GARCIA TAKES DOWN BLUE!!
Rich Russillo: Garcia quickly pulls Blue up to her feet as MARR COMES FLYING FROM THE LEFT!! WITH THE DEATH OR GLORY LEAPING UPPERCUT ONTO BETHANY BLUE AND JALYN GARCIA!!! Charlie went Air Marr there as all three competitors gathered up to their feet, slowly starting to exchange blows as Raven grabs a ladder in the ring.
James Peters: What is she doing? Raven is choosing not to set it up in the ring as she holds it onto while climbing the turnbuckles! WHAT IS SHE THINKING!?!?!? SHE HOLDS THE LADDER ACROSS HER CHEST AS SHE FLIPS OVER!!!! ASAAIIIII MOOOOONSAULLLLTTTT!!!! EVERYONE GOES DOWN!!!!!
Persephone: What a sensational moonsault as Raven utilised that long ladder to implement more damage and impact onto the three competitors from below! Roberts grabs a fresh ladder from the side and introduces it into the squared circle. She sets it up and begins to climb! BUT LOOK AT GARCIA!! GARCIA SOARS OFF THE TOP ROPE AND SENDS RAVEN OFF THE LADDER WITH A MISSILE DROPKICK!!
Rich Russillo: Garcia readjusts the ladder and now begins to climb it! BUT HERE COMES THE “DOCTOR”! Garcia is due for a check-up now as Blue stops him from reaching the top. Bethany targets the leg, attacking it with strikes as she snatches her leg and pulls him off the ladder! GARCIA SPINS AROUND AND JUMPS ONTO BLUE!!
James Peters: AND DRILLS HER WITH A CANADIAN DESTROYER!!! WHAT A COUNTER AS HE JUST COMPLETELY DEVASTATED THE “DOCTOR” WITH THAT FLIP PILEDRIVER as he now returns to the ladder and begins to climb!
Persephone: Marr with the edge of a ladder to the legs of Garcia!! Garcia loses his balance and is hung from the rungs as Marr sets the ladder onto the ground. He detaches Garcia from the ladder and holds him up in the air with a crucifix hold! WHAT IS HE THINKING!?!?! OH MY GOD DON’T THIS!!! NO!!!! CRUCCCCIFFFIXXX POWERBOMB ONTO THE LADDR!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT GARCIA TURNS IT INTO A FACEBUSTER!! THE “WILDHEART” DRIVES MARR FACE FIRST INTO THE LADDER WITH A SIT-OUT FACEBUSTER AS HE MIGHT HAVE SAVED HIMSELF FROM COLD-BLOOD MURDER!!
James Peters: Jalyn Garcia takes a few seconds to adjust himself as he gets up to his feet. Raven Roberts is looking to go for a high-risk maneuver as she eagerly ascends the turnbuckles. BUT LOOK! GARCIA OUT OF NOWHERE, SHOOTING OFF THE CANVAS AND ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! Both elitists in a precarious position here as they exchange blows! These two could lose their balance at any seconds as Blue slides into the ring and snatches Garcia, bringing him into the middle of the ring in an electric chair!!
James Peters: Blue may have saved Roberts from meeting her demise as Blue continues to have him in an electric cha- GARCIA TILTS OVER AND DRIVES BLUE INTO THE TRASH CAN WITH AN INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER!! UNMITIGATED DAMAGE TO THE NECK OF DR. BETHANY BLUE AS GARCIA SLOWLY RETURNS TO HIS FEET.
Persephone: “Main Event Marr” and Raven Roberts exchanging blows on the top turnbuckle as Garcia recuperates. RAVEN GRABS THE LEFT SIDE OF MARR!!! OH NO!! AND SETS OFF!!! SUPERR SPANIIISH FLY ONTO JALYN GARCIA!!!! BOTH ELITISTS GO CRASHING ONTO THE BODY MASS OF JALYN GARCIA, PANCAKING HIM AS ALL FOUR INDIVIDUALS ARE DOWN-AND-OUT IN THE RING!!
James Peters: The Colombian crowd here in Bogota giving Blue, Garcia, Marr, and Roberts a standing ovation as they now begin to gingerly get up to their feet. This is the moment in this match where these four have to catch their breaths and break out of the exhausting soreness. All four now staring at each other, each in their own corner as they all direct their attention onto Garcia.
Rich Russillo: All three of them realize that Garcia is the smallest, most vulnerable and weakest competitor in this match. JALYN DUCKS “THE LIBERTINE” CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT, RUNS AND SLINGSHOTS OFF THE BOTTOM ROPE!! WHAT THE!!?!?!? BOTTOM ROPE SPRINGBOARD STUNNER TO MARR!!! MARR REELS INTO THE CORNER AS BLUE QUICKLY LIFTS GARCIA UP FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX!!
Persephone: THE MIDGET FLIPS ONTO HIS FEET! Blue is unaware as she turns around and EATS AN EXPLOSIVE DROPKICK TO THE CHEST!! The “Doctor” stumbles through the ropes as we are witnessing an impressive defensive action from Jayln Garcia! However, Raven stands across the ring, pending and waiting to strike as Garcia turns around. THE FACEEELIFFTTT!!!!!!
James Peters: The devastating spinning heel kick right to the jaw and just like that, JALYN GARCIA IS OUT LIKE A LIGHT!! Roberts is now the only competitor standing in the squared circle as she quickly makes her way to a ladder and positions it in the center of the ring. This is what Raven needs to bounce back, but here comes Marr into the ring, who sticks a forearm into her back. Roberts is brought onto one knee from the blow as Marr goes into the corner and lines her up! PERHAPS THE CHARING CROSS!?!??! HE ROTATES AROUND TOWARDS RAVEN!!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN COUNTERS IT INTO THE FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! THE WING BREAKER SINKED IN AS THAT WAS THAT LAST THING MARR WAS EXPECTING!! But, Marr quickly rolls her over, forcing her to release the hold as both get up their feet! RAVEN SPINS AROUND!! THE FACELIFT!!!
Persephone: NO!!! MARR SAW IT COMING AS HE DUCKS DOWN AND PULLS HER DOWN WITH A SCHOOL BOY!! THE SCHOOL BOY GETS HER HUNG UP ON THE ROPES PLACING HER IN THE PERFECT POSITION FOR THE APRON DDT!! BUT ROBERTS AVOIDS IT, THROWING MARR OVER HER AND ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!
James Peters: Marr took a hard hit onto the floor as Raven pulls herself onto the ropes while BLUE COMES CHARGING IN!!! BUT RAVEN CLOCKS HER WITH A HEAVY FOREARM TO THE JAW!! Blue is staggered as she gets her hands onto the top rope. WHAT THE?!?! BLUE PULLS THE ROPES TOWARDS HER, SLINGSHOTTING RAVEN INTO THE RING AND DROPPING HER WITH A CUTTER!! THE REMEDY CUTTER CONNECTS IN A BEAUTIFUL INNOVATIVE VARIATION OF IT!!
Rich Russillo: Roberts is out and this presents an opportunity for Blue to get ahold of the “unique opportunity” as she fixes the ladder and begins to step onto the rungs. Garcia sneaks into the ring, climbing from the other side of the ladder as both Roberts and Blue race up to the top!
Persephone: MARR OUT OF NOWHERE PULLS BLUE OFF THE LADDER AND WHIPS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE!!! THE “DOCTOR” HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES AS GARCIA SHOOTS OFF THE LADDER AND LEAPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE!! MARR LOOKS UP AS GARCIA SNATCHES HIS HEAD AND DRILLS HIM WITH A TORNADO DDT!! OH MY GOD!!!
James Peters: “THE LIBERTINE’S” SKULL GOES CRASHING INTO THE CANVAS AS GARCIA NOW QUICKLY GETS UP TO HIS FEET!! He turns around and sends a dropkick to the knees of Roberts, sending her face-first down onto the apron before running the ropes and SOARING THROUGH BETWEEN THE LADDER!! CANADIAN DESTROYER!!
Rich Russillo: BETHANY CATCHES HIM INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY AND HOISTS HIM UP!! Garcia jumps over her shoulders, escaping and connecting with a pump kick to the jaw. Blue is down onto one knee as Garcia runs across the apron. BLUE JUMPS DOWN AND USES BOTH FEET TO THRUST GARCIA INTO THE AIR AND INTO THE ARMS OF RAVEN ROBERTS!!
Persephone: AND ROBERTS USES HER SHEER POWER TO HOLD ONTO GARCIA AND HOIST HIM UP INTO A POWERBOMB!! GARCIA HAS NOWHERE TO GO!! ROBERTS POWERBOMBS GARCIA ONTO THE BRIDGED LADDER AT RINGSIDE!! HE BOUNCES EMPHATICALLY OFF THE LADDER, MOVELESS AS ROBERTS MAY HAVE KILLED THE MAN!
James Peters: Raven has a new inferno in her eyes as Dr. Bethany Blue glides off the apron for a leaping knee strike! RAVEN CATCHES HER!! BLUE MIGHT MEET THE SAME DEMISE AS GARCIA!! RAVEN HOISTS HER INTO THE POWERBOMB!!! BLUE MANAGES TO ESCAPE OVER THE SHOULDERS! SAY AHHHHHHHH!!!!!
Rich Russillo: The mandible claw is locked in on Raven Roberts as she struggles to get out of it! Roberts slams her back into the ringpost, but it is to no avail! Charlie Marr has recovered in the squared circle while Roberts starts to fade! MARR SHRUGS BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES AND SHOOTING THROUGH!!! TOPPPEEE SUIIIICIDDDDDAAAA!!!
Persephone: THE SUICIDE DIVE, TAKING OUT BOTH ROBERTS AND BLUE OUT OF COMMISSION AS HE QUICKLY GETS BACK INTO THE RING. CHARLIE MARR IS ON HIS WAY TO ACQUIRING THE OPPORTUNITY AS HE ASCENDS THE LADDER!! There is no sign of Garcia, Blue, or Roberts as Marr lifts his hand in the air, getting his hands onto the contract with a sinister smirk on his face. HE UNHO-
Rich Russillo: BETHANY BLUE CHUCKS A STEEL CHAIR RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF MARR!! BLUE WITH A PRECISION THROW, STUNNING MARR AS SHE SLIDES INTO THE RING AND CLIMBS BELOW HIM. Marr may have been knocked down by that chair as BLUE GRABS BOTH LEGS AND ATTEMPTS TO PUT HIM DOWN WITH A POWERBOMB!!
James Peters: Marr, however, defends himself with downward stomps. Blue begins to lose her foundation as MARR SHOVES HER AWAY! BUT BETHANY GETS THE HAND IN FOR THE MANDIBLE CLAW! SAY AH AS MARR WAILS HIS ARM!! I DON’T THINK IT’S SAFE TO PUT SOMEONE IN A SUBMISSION HOLD ON THE LADDER!!!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE DIGS HIS FINGERNAILS INTO THE EYELIDS OF BLUE, BURYING IT AS BLUE’S VISION IS TEMPORARILY BLINDED ON THE LADDER! Marr steps one rung lower to Blue’s level and hooks both arms. Is he possibly looking for The Queen Is Dead off the ladder? No Way, Jose is this happening!
Persephone: Blue gets out of the double underhook and decks Marr with an european forearm. Marr is stunned as Blue takes a deep breath and wraps his arms around “The Libertine’s” neck! WHAT IS SHE THINKING!! BETHANY STEPS OFF THE LADDER AND BRINGS MARR DOWN WITH HIM!! SUPPPEERRRRR CUTTTTERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!
James Peters: BUT MARR TURNS IT INTO THE REAR NAKED CHOKE!! HE DROPS HER INTO THE TRANQUILITY SUBMISSION HOLD WITH AN UNEXPECTED COUNTER AS BLUE TRIES TO FIGHT OUT OF THE HOLD! Marr has the arms wrapped around the neck in addition to the leg scissors around the waist of Blue. He has it tightly locked in, but this is a ladder match, submissions and pinfalls don’t matter!
Rich Russillo: It’s all about wearing your opponents down and putting them to sleep will put you at a great advantage! Blue refuses to succumb to the rear naked choke hold as Raven Roberts begins to climb the turnbuckle off to the side. Marr tightens the chokehold even more as ROBERTS LOOKS TO RISK IT ALL!!
Persephone: RAVENNNNNN’SSSS WINNNGGGGSS!! THE SPIRAL TAP ONTO BOTH INDIVIDUALS THAT SQUASHES BLUE INTO MARR! Amazing action here in this fatal four way ladder match where a “unique opportunity” is hung above the squared circle. This has been a hellacious warfare between these four individuals as I know any of them would love to walk out of tonight with that opportunity.
James Peters: Roberts arches her back to ease the pain before slowly positioning a steel ladder properly into the center of the ring. Both Marr and Blue are temporarily out of the folds as Roberts painstakingly makes her way up the ladder. This could be it as Roberts is only a few rungs away from the contract!
Rich Russillo JALYN GARCIA SHOOTS OFF THE ROPES AND LEAPS OVER RAVEN!! GARCIA IS ALIVE AS ROBERTS CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT’S HAPPENING!! GARCIA IS ON THE TOP AS ROBERTS TRIES TO STOP HIM, BUT GARCIA GETS HIS HANDS ONTO THE CONTRACT!!
James Peters: BUT ROBERTS DRIVES HER FIST DOWN ONTO THE BACK OF GARCIA!! Garca. That stops him in his tracks as Roberts attempts to get higher up to his level. Look at this! Blue is back into the ring as Garcia retains his high ground. Blue reaches down and grabs the bottom of the other side of the ladder. NO!! NO!! NO! NO!!!
Persephone: THE “DOCTOR” LIFTS UP THE LADDER AS ROBERTS AND GARCIA SCRAMBLE IN FEAR!! THIS IS NOT GOING TO END WELL!! GARCIA QUICKLY PLACES HIS LEGS OVER THE NECK OF ROBERTS, LOCKING IN A HEADSCISSORS AS GARCIA THROWS THE LADDER DOWN!! BLUE TILTS IT OVER!!!
Rich Russillo: HOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYY SHITTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JALYN GARCIA DRIVES ROBERTS THROUGH THE BRIDGED LADDER AT RINGSIDE WITH A SUPER INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER!! BOTH ELITISTS SNAP THE LADDER INTO TWO HALVES AS EVERYONE IN THIS VENUE, INCLUDING MARR AND BLUE LOOK DOWN ONTO THE DEBRIS WITH SHOCK!
James Peters: Everyone can’t believe what just occurred before our very eyes! We thought Garcia getting powerbombed through that ladder was devastating, Garcia just got revenge and drove Raven head first through the ladder with an inverted frankensteiner! I can’t believe it!
Persephone: Blue positions the ladder back into the center of the ring and turns around. Charlie Marr and Dr. Bethany Blue is about to climb the ladder as they stare at each other. They get their foot off the rungs and face off, talking trash and NOW EXCHANGING BLOWS!! RIGHT BY BLUE!! LEFT BY MARR!! RIGHT BY BLUE! A FOREARM TO BLUE!! A KNIFE-EDGE CHOP TO MARR!
Rich Russillo: MARR WITH A KICK TO THE CHEST!! A WELL PLACED KICK AS MARR NOW COMES OFF THE ROPES AND SPINS AROUND!! CHARRINGGG CROSSS!! NO!! BLUE INTERCEPTS WITH THE TJD!! IMPECCABLE TIMING BY THE “DOCTOR”. Marr is out cold as Blue reshifts her attention back on to the ladders.
James Peters: She is electing not to climb up for the briefcase as she grabs the ladders into the corner and bridges it. She has two ladders from each side of the ladder connecting to the corner turnbuckles as she pulls Marr up to his feet and picks him up! POWERBOMB ONTO THE LADDER!!
Persephone: NO!! “BIG MATCH MARR” BURIES HIS FINGERNAILS INTO THE EYE SOCKETS OF THE “DOCTOR”!! That’s not the first time Marr went for the eyes in this match as Blue has trouble seeing. MARR KICKS AND GOES FOR THE QUEEN IS DEAD!! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT!!
James Peters: BUT THE “DOCTOR” SHOVES HIM AWAY AND CONNECTS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE FACE!!! MARR IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS AS BLUE COMES OFF THE ROPES AND JUMPS UP!! THE REMEDY COUNTER!!!
Rich Russillo: AND MARR COUNTERS IT ONCE AGAIN INTO THE SLEEPER HOLD!! HE ATTEMPTS TO BRING HIM DOWN TO FULLY LOCK IN TRANQUILITY, BUT BLUE IS HOLDING HER GROUND!! THE TRANQUILITY HOLD LOCKED IN AND IF BLUE GOES TO SLEEP, MARR WILL BE ABLE TO CLIMB THE LADDER WITHOUT INTERRUPTION!
Persephone: GARCIA WITH A SPRINGBOARD CANNONBALL ONTO BOTH COMPETITORS!! HOW IN THE HELL DID HE DO THAT AND WHERE THE HELL DID HE COME FROM!?!?
James Peters: GARCIA SPRINGBOARDED OFF THE ROPES, AND SOARED THROUGH THE TINY SPACE BETWEEN THE LADDER AND MANAGED TO REACH BOTH MARR AND BLUE WITH A TOPE CON HILO!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!??!
Rich Russillo: RIdiculous athletic ability shown by Jalyn Garcia, but that may have been worth it! That leap of faith took Blue and Marr out of the squared circle as he started to climb rung-by-rung! Garcia is seconds away from receiving this “unique opportunity” which will unquestionably elevate his career as he reaches for the contract!
James Peters: RAVEN ROBERTS SPRINGBOARDS ONTO THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE LADDER!! ROBERTS HAS BLOOD COURSING DOWN FROM HER SCALP AND LOOKS LIKE A DEMON POSSESSED! GARCIA HAS NO IDEA WHAT’S IN FRONT OF HIM AS ROBERTS QUICKLY GRABS HIM!!
Persephone: ROBERTS HELL BENT ON GETTING REVENGE FOR EARLIER AS SHE CLOCKS GARCIA WITH A FOREARM AND HOOKS HIS TIGHTS!! THIS IS NOT SMART!! RAVEN DON’T DO THIS!!! SHE LIFTS HIM UP!!! OH MY!!!!!
Rich Russillo: BRAINNNBUSSTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! A SUPER BRAINBUSTER THROUGH THE WEDGED LADDERS, BREAKING IT IN HALF!!! THAT’S GOT TO BE IT FOR GARCIA!! GOD DAMNIT!!!
James Peters: Raven Roberts commiting bloody murder on Jalyn Garcia as these two are down-and-out! Marr now back into the ring with a smile on his face as he nonchalantly begins to ascend the ladder. The crowd raining down heavy boos on him as Marr is about to unhook the contract! WE HAVE A WINNER!!
Persephone: IT’S NURSE GOLDSTEIN!!! MARR TURN AROUND!!! CHARLIE IS TAKING HIS TIME GETTING THE CONTRACT AS GOLDSTEIN CLIMBS ONTO THE LADDER AND CLENCHES TIGHTS!!! AND MARR GOES CRASHING THROUGH THE OTHER WEDGED LADDER!!! MY GOD!!
James Peters: GOLDSTEIN JUST THREW MARR INTO THE LADDER AS DR. BETHANY BLUE SLIDES INTO THE RING, SMILING! GOLDSTEIN STANDS GUARD AS BLUE CLIMBS TO THE TOP OF THE LADDER AND GETS AHOLD OF THE CONTRACT!!
Rich Russillo: AND SHE UNHOOKS IT!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Bad Medicine” by Bon Jovi blasts through the speaker as Dr. Bethany Blue holds the contract high in the air on the top of the ladder. It shows EAW’s medical staff attending to the injuries of Roberts and Garcia as Marr looks on with anger and disappointment. Nurse Goldstein continues to celebrate with Blue. )
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNNERRRR…… DOCTTTTORRRR….. BETHHHHANNNNNNNYYYY BLLUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Voltage returns and cuts an interview conducted earlier today with Sofia Clarke and Raven Roberts.)
Sofia Clark: Welcome back to Voltage. Last weekend on Showdown, the Universal Women’s Champion, Minerva, aired a couple of vignettes of her going through the new home of Raven Roberts and Rex McAllister. Sometime during her, errr visit, Minerva would unearth some private information that she would bring to Showdown with her and ultimately she would end up sharing it with the world, despite my guest tonight begging her not too. Joining me tonight to talk about that, and some other things as well, is the number one contender to the Universal Women’s Championship, Raven Roberts.
(The camera zooms out and shows Raven sitting across from Sofia. The expression on her face is a somber one, and that probably doesn’t surprise anyone watching at home. She isn’t dressed as she usually would be, opting for a simple long sleeved black top and minimal makeup with her hair tied back. Her eyes are visibly bloodshot, the stress and pain of the past week weighing heavy on her.)
Sofia Clark: Thank you for joining me, Raven. I know you have a lot on your mind right now.
Raven Roberts: You could say that.
Sofia Clark: Let’s just cut right to the chase. What went through your head as you stood backstage at Showdown and watched Minerva violate your personal space, mess with your things, and ultimately find something you clearly wanted to stay hidden for the time being?
Raven Roberts: What went through my mind? What goes through someone’s mind as they see their most private sanctuary being violated by an unwanted guest? What goes through your head when someone pulls out your most private pieces of your life and dangles them in front of the world? I spent the majority of my life in a ratty apartment until Rex and I got married. A home is meant to be a safe haven. We built that house to raise our…
(Raven’s jaw clenches mid-sentence, the words catching in her throat. She closes her eyes briefly, forcing herself through the thought.)
Raven Roberts: …I was angry. I was panicked. And yeah… I was afraid.
Sofia Clark: How did you find out you couldn’t have children?
(Raven stares through Sofia for a moment, the abruptness of the question clearly eating at the former champion’s already thin patience for this interview.)
Raven Roberts: It was just after Under Siege just a few months ago… Minerva had cashed in on me. I’d felt off for a while. But nothing I thought significant so I brushed it off. And I had a match on Voltage with Charlie Marr, Jalyn Garcia, and Bethany Blue. Ladder match. Big. Wild. Tons of insanity as per usual. And a day or so after the match… I just felt this pain in my abdomen like I couldn’t describe. It was different than anything I’d felt before. Not quite a stabbing pain, not quite shooting pain, not quite like anything in nearly a decade of wrestling. If you remember, I didn’t compete again until Grand Rampage. That’s because I went to the doctor… and found out that I was pregnant… or… had been pregnant. I didn’t know. I take birth control. But as the warning labels say, it’s not one hundred percent effective. The doctor determined that I’d gotten pregnant while Rex and I were on our honeymoon. And despite having competed at Under Siege, it was during the ladder match that I sustained some… damage.
Sofia Clarke: The match caused you to miscarry?
(Tears form in Raven’s eyes, she grits her teeth, sucking in air to try and keep her calm.)
Raven Roberts: No. The match… the match just made me aware of it. I’d not been late… the pill helped control my cycle… so I had no way of knowing to check… but the doctor examined me. And he determined the match… the match only caused some internal bruising around my lower abdomen. The baby… the baby had never stood a chance…
(The tears streak down both sides of her face. Raven tries to wipe them but they keep flowing. She gasps a breath of air in as she begins to sob, trying to continue.)
Raven Roberts: Before… Before I came to REVOLT! and EAW… I’d spent eight years putting my body through hell to get here. People think Voltage is violent, but they don’t often see some of the insanity that happens in these low budget indie shows where everyone is desperate to have a highlight that gets the attention of the big companies. I sacrificed my life to be a wrestler… and as it turns out… I sacrificed the lives of my children to be a wrestler as well… I… (she gasps another breath) I accumulated… too much internal scarring around my uterus… making it impossible for an egg that attaches to the uterine wall to survive… the doctor ran test after test… and short of a miracle… I will never be a mother.
(Raven’s nose begins to run with her tears as she lets the final statement hang in the air. She tries to bury her face in her hands to hide the ugly crying but she is there in her fullest representation, a broken woman.)
Sofia Clark: Had you already shared the news with Rex or did he unfortunately find out at the same time as the rest of us?
(Raven looks up very suddenly from her hands, rage replacing the melancholy that was just in her face.)
Raven Roberts: You know the answer to that already.
(Sofia is taken aback. She pauses, looking down at her notes for another question.)
Sofia Clark: Minerva stated she only went down this road because she wanted to make this match personal. Why do you think she felt the need to stoop this low?
Raven Roberts: Because she couldn’t stand the idea that maybe, just maybe, I could’ve been happy. She said herself not too far back that she couldn’t stand the fact that despite not being one of those she classes as the Barbie dolls around EAW, I had the husband, I had the home, I’d built an actual life for myself that wasn’t the typical “Go out and buy a bunch of bullshit with no real value” because that isn’t what appeals to me. She hated that. She referred to me as a golden girl, ignoring everything in my life that I’d done or been through to get where I was. To hold what I had. Coming up from nothing. Sleeping in alleyways. And even the woman I became with the Crowe’s Nest. Ignore all of it. Because for a brief moment, I’d been able to be happy. And because Minerva could never be happy like that, she won’t let anyone else be so. “I want this match to be personal.” It’s not the first time she’s said it either. She wanted Grand Rampage to be personal. Talked about things like what happened with Constance over a year and a half ago. Even mentioning then that she was annoyed that I dare have my quaint little life outside of EAW with Rex. She talked about how she wanted to humiliate me. But she failed back then. Even after exposing a turnbuckle and bouncing my head off it before hitting yet another finisher, I still got my feet in the ropes. And she left, smiling as though she’d beaten the entire women’s roster dominantly in that match and refusing to acknowledge what happened which I can’t say shocked me. She wanted to pretend she won dominantly to help herself sleep at night. She couldn’t humiliate me in the match. So when she was going to have to face me again, she chose to take her best shot and target my personal life directly. She wanted to just play around in my house. Trying to fuck with my head. But she found my test results. And because she found out something was wrong, she chose to use that to humiliate me instead. Now the world knows. Now Rex knows. She found the one thing that I would beg on my knees to keep private because I’d not even been able to deal with it yet myself, and she showed it to the world… just because it made her feel better.
Sofia Clark: What are you going to do to Minerva at Pain for Pride?
Raven Roberts: Minerva… I am going to do what Minerva could never have done… I’m going to pay her back tenfold… I’m going to humiliate her inside of that ring… She got what she wanted. It’s personal. If she wants to be all happy about being in my head… then when Pain for Pride comes she better remember that she asked for this. I’m going to embarrass her in that ring… I’m going to make her suffer… and I’m going to make her give up the Universal Women’s Championship… just to make the pain I cause her to stop…
Sofia Clark: Raven… I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing you and Rex on numerous occasions. So I just have to ask… how are you two doing with this news to your relationship? Are you working it out or—
(Raven immediately begins to grab at the microphone that’s clipped to the collar of her shirt, tugging at the wires.)
Raven Roberts: We’re done here.
(She finally pulls the wires off and tosses the microphone and recording device away as she stands before immediately walking off set in anger.)
(Voltage fades back to ringside.)
(The camera fades into the middle of the ring as Bella Braxton stands ready to announce the upcoming match.)
James Peter: I’m excited about this one folks! Voltage has been the center for hungry, young competitors looking to make their name in the wrestling world, and tonight is a huge opportunity for one rookie, as he takes on a certified vet in the form of The Woogieman!
Persephone: Since when did a FREE win turn into an opportunity?
(“If Ya Smell” by Adam Massacre hits the speakers as The Woogieman comes out to a decent pop, looking as serious as ever.)
James Peter: Despite his record, The Woogieman has become a recognized name. He’s main evented countless Voltage shows, showed consistency, and always does his best to walk the talk.
Persephone: That’s good and all, but he sucks. When’s the last time he’s actually won a match?
(Woogieman does his usual schtick of walking alongside the apron, getting on the second turnbuckle, and smelling the air, before hopping into the ring and running the ropes. “Survival” by Eminem replaces the speakers, as Adam Lucas comes out with an innocent on his face, nodding his head at the reception he receives.)
Persephone: Basic theme song by an irrelevant artist, check. Vanilla midget, check. What’s there to even be excited about?
James Peter: You can’t judge a book by their cover.
Persephone: If that cover doesn’t have my DARLING Rex McAllister’s perfect jawline on it, then I’m not invested.
James Peter: Anyways… Adam Lucas is a young man from New York who’s looking to use EAW as a platform for his rehabilitation. He believes he can do good, and that’s something the EAW faithful can get behind.
(Adam rolls underneath the bottom rope and gets ready, staring The Woogieman in the eyes.)
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Rich Russillo: Alrighty, both men sizing each other up! Collar and elbow tie-up with The Woogieman having the strength advantage. He pushes Adam into the corner and tells him to bring it. Adam seems somewhat out of the zone, rolling his shoulder back before going in for the grapple once more. He’s quick to grab the left arm and twist under it for a wrist lock, Woogieman showing the pain on his face. It’s reversed into a wrist lock of the self-proclaimed “TGH”.
Persephone: TGH? :skip: The Godawful Herniaofwrestling?
James Peter: You’re just being petty now. Adam now, walking over to the rope, grabbing it and doing a black flip to reverse out of the hold, impressive! He slaps the hand away AND HITS A DROPKICK TO THE CHEST! The Woogieman’s up now and eats a FOREARM! Another! Another! He goes for a strike but Adam ducks under only to come back with a STEP-UP ENZIGURI THAT LEADS WOOGIE TO DROP FACE FIRST ON THE MAT! The crowd is hot and all for Adam, who sees Woogie roll under the ring, waving him away.
Persephone: You see that! HE QUITS! YES! MATCH OVER! Thank yew Jezus.
Rich Russillo: FAR FROM IT AS LUCAS HITS A BASEMENT DROPKICK TO THE FACE OF WOOGIEMAN! He’s not gonna let anyone quit on his debut! He climbs up the top rope now, scouting like an eagle…. FLYING CROSSBODY ON THE OUTSIDE!
Persephone: I hate this nerdy piece of white-bread, he needs to END this match already so we can get to the rewind of Schmexy Rexy vs. that skank Raven Roberts :noah:
James Peter: He’s proving why he’s one to look out for as he throws The Woogieman back into the ring and slides in with him. Cover!
James Peter: Kickout! The always resilient Woogieman gets the shoulder up as Lucas looks ready for more. He gets up and calls Woogie up, running the ropes and looking for something, but he’s cut off by a BIG lariat as Woogie taps the side of his head as he talks some shit. He puts the boots to him a few times before bringing him up, kicking him in the gut and hitting a BIIIIIG suplex! Cover now!
Rich Russillo: Kickout from Adam! He won’t give up now! The Woogieman gets up and brings Lucas to his feet, hitting a MASSIVE chop to the chest. But Lucas comes back with a few of his own! CHOPPY CHOP CHOP! FOREARM FROM LUCAS! FOREARM FROM WOOGIE! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! AND ONE MORE THAT STUNS LUCAS!
Persephone: If I had a nickel for everytime two dweebs would exchange forearms in a match, I’d be rich. I mean, I am already but, you get the point.
James Peter: Woogieman with a kick to the gut, looking for a quick DDT! BUT NO! ADAM REVERSES OUT OF IT AND HITS A DISCUS PUNCH! That might’ve knocked a tooth out! REGARDLESS THERE IS STILL BLOOD FROM THE MOUTH OF THE WOOGIEMAN and is edging backwards! He runs the ropes now, AND HE’S CAUGHT WITH A SPINEBUSTER!!!! WAIT! ADAM ROLLS WITH IT AND ROLLS UP WOOGIE!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! BUT ADAM CROSSES THE LEGS AND LOCKS IN THE SHARPSHOOTER! HE’S SITTING BACK ON IT AS WOOGIE IS SHOUTING IN PAIN! HE’S SCRATCHING AT THE MAT, TRYING TO REACH FOR THE ROPES, BUT ADAM PULLS HIM BACK! HE’S CLOSE TO TAPPING!
James Peter: NO! With what’s left he THROWS Adam back off of him! Adam takes a breather as they both stand up, leaving Adam to run at Woogie! HE CUTS CUT IN HALF WITH A SPEAAARRRRR! He looks exhausted, but wastes no time to drag Adam in the middle of the ring by the arm. He looks around, kicks Adam’s leg to his side, and GOES FOR HIS ELBOW PAD! HE PULLS IT OFF AND THROWS IT OUT TO THE FANS, CROSSING THE ARMS, AND RUNS THE ROPES! THE PEOPLES ELBOOOOOOO-
Rich Russillo: NO! HE COMES DOWN HARD ON THE MAT AS ADAM ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY IN TIME! THEY’RE BOTH UP AND ADAM’S CAUGHT! THE BOTTOM!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! ADAM SWINGS HIS BODY UP AND LOCKS IN THE TRIANGLE CHOKE! WOOGIE’S SPAZZING OUT AND TRYING TO REACH THE ROPES, BUT ADAM CONTINUES TO APPLY THE PRESSURE! HE’S CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF WOOGIE! AGAIN AND AGAIN WOOGIE TRIES TO ESCAPE BUT IT’S NO USE! HE TAPS OUT!!!!!!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
(“Survival” by Eminem plays as Adam lets go of the hold, leaving Woogieman to slowly roll out of the ring.)
James Peter: He did it! Adam Lucas has secured his first victory here in the EAW in impressive fashion!
(Peresphone could be seen checking her phone, looking at Adam and yawning. The ref raises his hand as he holds his neck in pain, smiling at his accomplishment.)
Rich Russillo: Quite the competition! Whether or not he’s waving the Voltage brand in Season 14, it’s more than safe to say big things are coming this kid’s way. Hard work, dedication, and passion are what’s going to lead him to accomplishing his goals.
James Peter: Indeed! The Woogieman was bested tonight, but he put in the effort.
(Adam continues to celebrate his first ever win as an Elitist, as Voltage fades into a video package highlighting Rex McAllister’s journey to Pain for Pride.)
Narrator: The road for Rex McAllister was treacherous.
(The footage starts at Pain For Pride Festival 2 years ago. Diamond Cage is seen making his entrance into the EAW Championship match, before the camera focuses in on Rex McAllister. Bon Jovi is seen playing him to the ring as he holds up the EAW Championship and makes eye contact with Cage in the ring)
Narrator: Pain For Pride Festival was a moment that Rex could not see slip through his fingers. Walking into the show as the EAW Champion he hoped to walk out as the champion as well. And living on the fact that no one, not even former World Champion and EAW Hall of Famer Diamond Cage, as not going to stop him in any sort of way.
(A quick recap of the big points of the match were shown before finally cutting to the final moments of the match. Cage has locked in the Coquina Clutch as Rex is seen walking with him and climbing up the turnbuckle. In a desperate attempt he had leaped off the turnbuckle trying to slam him to the ground, but the perseverance of Cage was too strong as the Coquina Clutch was fully locked in. After much struggling from the EAW Champion, he was forced to pass out from the pain as Diamond Cage had become your new EAW World Champion in a crowning moment)
Narrator: You build one career up in a crown jewel, and you crumble down another in the process. Cage’s redemption story is something we will never forget, but one thing we will also not forget, with Cage’s end of the story, started Rex McAllister’s Road to Redemption which has been none short than spectacular.
(It then continues on to see Rex being drafted to Voltage and then onto the Voltage Supershow: Crossfire 2018, where he went on to face Chris Elite to gain a shot at the EAW World Heavyweight Championship. Chris Elite makes his entrance to the loud cheers from the hometown crowd with the World Heavyweight Championship as Rex McAllister is then focused on. The crowd is seen booing the challenger which is a new setting, but Rex keeps that determined face on him as he pushes forward.)
Narrator: Being drafted to Voltage opened up plentiful doors for Rex McAllister. Allowing and opening a door at the Voltage Supershow: Crossfire after winning a Number One Contenders spot to fight for the World Heavyweight Championship. Despite having the odds heavily stacked against him, not only being in the World Heavyweight Champion, Chris Elite’s hometown but also a very tough task indeed to set forth and accomplish.
(It then continues on to Territorial Invasion with the newly crowned World Heavyweight Champion Rex McAllister being apart of Team Voltage with Co-National Elite Champions MarrKade facing off with the other 3 brands at the time as well, Dynasty, Showdown, and Empire)
Narrator: Rex being the World Champion moved on to prove that his newly acquainted brand was not one to be looked over in the long run. Although it would be a hard task with people like the Chairman Mr. DEDEDE, someone he was oh so familiar with in Diamond Cage, and a monumental threat in the Jaded Wolfe Hearts this was certainly a minefield of people that Team Voltage had to go through.
(The footage went to the last parts of the match. Rex is seen luring Chris over the top rope and onto the apron. Chris springboards off the ropes but was caught by a big dropkick by Rex to the ropes causing Chris to spiral downwards to the ground. Rex then proceeded to connect with ‘The Rex Effect’ to win a long fought match and capture the World Heavyweight Championship to capture his second World Title in four months.)
Narrator: Sometimes dedication to the craft is all you need to continue onwards. Rex although facing immense challenges on his road back managed in just a short four months to capture another World Title, it was certainly a astonishing feat and who better than Rex to have that honor.
(The last scenes of the match go by quickly. Mr. DEDEDE from Team Dynasty is seen connecting with a spear onto the EAW Champion Diamond Cage from Team Showdown and getting the pinfall on Cage and winning for his team)
Narrator: Failures are something that is common in this business. Minor roadblocks on the road to success hinders some people’s success, its not permanent though. Although losing the job was not done for our EAW World Heavyweight Champion, not yet.
(It then goes to streams though Rex’s successful title defenses. It shows Rex McAllister vs Heart Break Boy at Wicked Games 2018 which after a intense match Rex connected with his signature ‘The Rex Effect’ to come out with the win on that night. It then continues on to Road To Redemption 2018. The World Heavyweight Championship Extreme Elimination Chamber. People like Charlie Marr, Prince of Phenomenal, Lethal Consequences, Impact, and Daryl Kinkade are shown before it shows Rex McAllister making his entrance in with the World Heavyweight Championship around his shoulder looking ready for anything that would come his way in this surely dangerous matchup)
Narrator: Possibly one of Rex’s biggest title defenses to date with the World Heavyweight Championship was at Road to Redemption 12. He was walking in with a major target on his back, and 5 people looking to take the title away from him. And of course the Extreme Elimination Chamber, a dastardly structure which was unforgiving in its acts.
(Footage is quickly shown of the barbaric match, every elimination is shown before finally trimming the participants down to the final two. Rex McAllister and Impact are seen as at the closing moments of the match, Rex had connected with not just one, but TWO ‘Rex Effect’ finishers in order to gain the win and retain his World Heavyweight Championship.)
Narrator: Sometimes even the slightest moments give you the opportunity to win no matter how much your back seems to be against a wall when it comes down to it. Even though everyone was out to get him, no matter how many people seemed to have the ambition for his gold, Rex showed that he wanted it more than anyone else, leaving Road to Redemption although battered and bruised, still your World Heavyweight Champion.
(Footage is then shown of King of Elite 2019. Rex McAllister defending his World Heavyweight Championship against Impact. Impact is seen making his entrance and surveying the landscape of the match they are in, the Barbed Wire Massacre match. Rex McAllister is then seen with his World Heavyweight Championship, he has a singapore cane in his hand and looks absolutely ready to fight for his World Title)
Narrator: Rex McAllister was not going to let Impact get the beat of him heading into King of Elite. He meant business in that match after weeks of ridiculing from Impact. He was ready to put Impact’s money where his mouth is and showed that the time for his World Championship reign to end was not going to be anywhere near now or soon.
(After a test of strength and a battle that was comprised of endurance and how far you were willing to go. Both men absolutely getting murdered but not being able to stay down for the count for long as the match pursued on. At the end it was finally Impact after taking out Rex, began to wrap a singapore cane around Rex and choke him out allowing Impact to gain his 8th reign as World Champion and best Rex. Not before Noah Reigner after the match cashed in his Cash In The Vault Briefcase which he used to win the World Heavyweight Championship away from Impact just mere minutes after he won it from Rex)
Narrator: But with that, all good things must come to an end. Rex McAllister losing the World Heavyweight Championship was bound to happen, we just never knew when. It was a bittersweet ending of the match for Rex, but a true ending? No, Rex McAllister doesn’t settle for just satisfactory. His drive and determination for EAW just won’t let him do that.
(It then moves on to Tempest 2019. The first Rex McAllister free-per-view match in a while where the World Championship was not involved. Daryl Kinkade is shown making his entrance into the ring for his submission match against The Rex Master. Rex McAllister is then seen making his way out, his face tells the story, a minor smile but also focusing and being determined for the matchup coming for him)
Narrator: Redemption was needed for Rex. After losing the EAW World Heavyweight Championship he needed to build himself up back to a point where the World Heavyweight Championship or any other World Title was in his grasp, and he wasn’t going to settle for a simple win, he wanted the World Title, and he wasn’t going to stop till he did.
(After a intense match full of endurance and multiple submission attempts trying to choke one another out to gain the win in the matchup. Daryl took the easy way out as he slammed brass knuckles right into the head of Rex illegally then proceeding to choke him out and gain a tainted, yet major win over Rex McAllister)
Narrator: Sometimes things take longer than you’d expect. The tainted win that Daryl had over Rex no matter that sent a punch right to his gut. But Rex had his share of failures before and despite what was thought, he was going to continue to pull himself up and go for broke.
(It then goes to Grand Rampage 2019. Rex McAllister was in the Grand Rampage matchup and it seems the odds were stacked against him especially with 29 other people after that same exact spot that Rex was after and that was a main event spot at Pain For Pride)
Narrator: The Grand Rampage match has always been known to crush dreams, break hearts, and everything and completely stop any chance you get to headline Pain For Pride, for some this might be your last chance, for others this might be a opening to a new opportunity. Rex McAllister was no different. And no matter what, he was going to make sure that that main event spot would be his fighting for a World Championship once again at Pain For Pride.
(Rex McAllister bursted through at Entrant #14 in the Grand Rampage match and showed himself to be an absolute iron man when it came down to it. He managed to get oh so close to winning, coming down to the final 2 with Jamie O’Hara, at the end it was Jamie who managed to throw him over the top rope eliminating him, allowing Jamie to win that guaranteed Pain For Pride World Championship match spot that he really did reach for for so long)
Narrator: At the end of the day Rex once again came so close to winning, but was eliminated just when he was about to reach for it. For Rex McAllister this was another blow that he was forced to take, a shot right to the gut. But one thing he knew was that one way or another, even if he was going to do the impossible, he was going to get that world title shot at Pain For Pride.
(It then pushes forward to Fighting Spirit: Seoul 2019. It was Rex McAllister vs The Visual Prophet with the literal fate of Voltage on the line, because if Viz won then Veena Adams would be crowned the co-commisioner of Voltage)
Narrator: Immense pressure is something you have to be ready for when entering a match. Rex McAllister was determining the fate of the brand he fought so hard to build and truly it was a match that he wanted to win, a desire. Even if it didn’t determine Pain For Pride, this was a match he needed to win, to get back on track after some very upsetting losses.
(This match was full of turmoil. From Veena and Nina on Viz’s side getting involved and even Captain Charisma coming out to make sure that Rex gets the win, Viz was managed to have a boost of life and put a hand over Rex, and gain the win. Rex was defeated, and Veena Adams was the new co-commisioner)
Narrator: Fury, thats all that went through Rex’s mind. Anger about what happened because truly at the end of the day he was screwed out of yet another win. But that wasn’t the end once more. Despite how truly angry the man could be, he dusted himself off. Because just when you think you count Rex McAllister out, he comes back stronger.
(It then heads to the Grandest Stage of Them All, Pain For Pride 12. Rex McAllister did manage to get into the World Heavyweight Championship match facing Noah Reigner, and Impact fighting for the World Heavyweight Championship once more)
Narrator: Despite everything you’ve got to take what you’ve got in your hand already and run with it. Rex McAllister entered this match with a big challenge, some could even say even difficulter than what was coming at him at Pain For Pride Festival. But to say he was even more determined than ever especially in Pain For Pride mode, was definitely even then a understatement.
(At the end of the match it was Impact who managed to get a modified bow and arrow choke onto Noah Reigner. Rex was so close to breaking up the hold but he was just late as just before he could, Noah Reigner was knocked out, giving Impact his 9th World Title reign)
Narrator: What was needed to be said? Pain for Pride 12 crushed Rex. In his 2nd consecutive world title match he came up short. It pained him to say that, after all that work he did to build himself up, just like at Pain For Pride Festival, he was crumbled down again. But to say that would once again stop Rex was a lie. Despite everything he was going to push on, because he’s Rex McAllister.
(The footage shown now takes us to Bloodsports 2019. Rex McAllister took on Ms. Extreme in a 30 minutes Iron man match. The footage shows the sequence in which the time ran out and everyone thought the match was over in a draw. Rex and Ms. Extreme, both completely worn out, gave all they had but ultimately couldn’t score a decisive pinfall before the 30 minutes mark)
Narrator: Resiliency is a feat that not many Elitists can possess. Rex McAllister sure does. He showed it multiple times over the course of his illustrious career. One of the nights in which he did that was against none other than Ms. Extreme, someone who is as tough as they come, yet Rex had no problem in going toe to toe against her and fight like he always does.
(The camera then cuts to the extra ten minutes of the fight in which Rex and Ms. Extreme took each others to their limits in an effort to win the match. Ultimately it was Rex McAllister the one who emerged victorious, finally putting the Red Queen down)
Narrator: That was just one of the many challenges Rex McAllister had to overcome in his Season 13. His journey to Pain for Pride had just started and now it was time to fight even more enemies, this time around with Championship gold on the line.
(The footage now shows the dramatic closing moments of the fight between the EAW World Champion at the time, Charlie Marr and Rex McAllister. Charlie got desperate in the final moments of the match and deliberately got himself disqualified in order to walk away from Territorial Invasion with the Championship around his waist.)
Narrator: Frustration can define an Elitist career. We get close to the goal, and we get pushed back down. We get fingertips away, we can feel it in our hands… but then it slips away from us at the very last moment. Nobody will ever be able to fully understand what Rex McAllister was put through that night when he went toe to toe against Charlie Marr thinking he was going to walk out with the title… but in the end, Marr took the easy way out. It doesn’t matter how many times you fall. True Elitists always find a way to claw their way back up. And so did Rex McAllister, in dramatic fashion.
(The footage now goes to cover the Wicked Games match against Jack Ripley. Rex McAllister and Jack Ripley went toe to toe, fighting counter to counter and put everything they had on the line but in the end the unexpected happened as Jordie Ripley got in the way and allowed Rex to hit Jack with the Rex Effect for the win)
Narrator: You cannot expect fair fights when family is involved. Rex McAllister knows this better than anyone as his Tag Team Partner is none other than his wife. Back at Wicked Games, Rex got caught up in another family affair yet he still found a way to walk away with his hands relatively clean. Although something dark was lurking in the shadows, waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike…
(We are taking at the Road to Redemption Chamber match. In particular, the footage focuses on the brutal assault suffered by Rex McAllister by the hand of Charlie Marr. Charlie utterly brutalized Rex with the help of a railroad spike. The referee calls for Rex’s elimination as he was no longer able to defend himself)
Narrator: Bad blood between Rex and Charlie brought to a shocking turn of events at Road to Redemption. Charlie took out his frustrations on Rex McAllister and was inches away from ending his career. That world title he has been craving for a while, that he was just fingertips away from winning… it was how far from his reach, pushed away by the same man who robbed him of his chance of winning it. Rex wasn’t done yet though. He was going to be reborn.
(Footage from King of Elite is shown. The footage shows the battle between the team of Rex McAllister and Raven Roberts, Fire & Ice, versus the team of the ILLIONAIRES. The first shots of the match are shown, where the back and forth action between the two teams took place right before the match shifted to another gear and got to his final moments)
Narrator: Rex McAllister always has an ally he could count on and that ally was Raven Roberts. Together they set the Tag Team division on fire. They earned their spot on the top though. Their first milestone on the road to the Unified Tag Team Championships was to earn the Number One Contendership status by defeating the ILLIONAIRES. Said team had already fought Heavenly Hell once and they were eager for a rematch. Unfortunately, Rex and Raven has different plans.
(Shots from the ending moments of the match are then shown, as Rex McAllister planted the trash can in the back of Chris Elite, effectively knocking him down and allowing Raven Roberts to follow up with the Falling Star. Raven then goes for the cover as Rex McAllister quickly takes out Ahren to make sure he couldn’t break up the pin)
Narrator: It takes time and dedication to make sure a team works properly. Fire & Ice proved the world how well orchestrated the duo could work at King of Elite. The ILLIONAIRES were no match to them despite their best efforts. They crumbled under Fire & Ice’s unity and strength. The stakes were raised and their goal was set. The Unified Tag Team Championship belts were going to be theirs sooner rather than later. All they had to do was to keep believing in one another and keep doing what they do best.
(The footage now shows scenes from Shock Value, the show in which Raven Roberts and Rex McAllister officially got married in front of the entire universe of EAW fans. The footage shows the final moments of the ceremony after both members of Fire & Ice agreed to the wedding. The footage also briefly shows Consuela Rose Ava with the bouquet in her hands and then shows the slow motion segment of Raven and Rex walking up the ramp, hand in hand)
Narrator: Rex McAllister and Raven Roberts we’re now bound together for eternity. A Tag Team of professional wrestlers united not by the lust for championship gold nor fame, but by the power of love. A moment of peace and serenity, in a show filled with grueling moments and violence. Although the following weeks were going to put their bond to the test, nobody was going to ever take away the perfection of that moment from them.
(The footage now shows the Grand Rampage match and in particular it focuses on some of the most iconic moments of it. In particular, the moment in which Rex McAllister made his entrance at number fifteen. Rex is shown sliding right underneath the bottom rope and immediately going after Cage. The two go back and forth for a bit as the Narrator talks over)
Narrator: And then Grand Rampage came. Only one person was going to come out on top from that carnage and chaos riddled stipulation. Rex McAllister was one of the favorites to win the whole thing but he still had to go through tough competition to get the win he deserved.
(The footage now focuses on the closing moments of the Grand Rampage match in which Cage and Rex went after each other. Rex then successfully hit Cage with a big boot, sending him crashing to the outside and securing one of the biggest, if not the biggest win of his career. Rex McAllister is the seen recovering on the mat and later celebrating in the empty stadium)
Narrator: The Grand Rampage match. A stipulation impossible to overcome for some, but to Rex McAllister it was just another obstacle in his career to the top. A career defining moment and a record shattering performance allowed him to become the Grand Rampage winner and take down Cage, a rival who was going to play a big role in his road to Pain for Pride. The rivalry between the two was for from being over as the Grand Rampage match simply ignited the flame instead of putting a definitive end to it.
(The footage from the Iron Man match from Fighting Spirit is now shown. The footage focuses on the late match sequences of the show, in particular the moment in which Rex hit his Wing Breaker on Cage and then attempted to tap him out with the armbar.)
Narrator: Rex McAllister went to war against Cage at Fighting Spirit. The match test those men’s will like no other match before in their illustrious careers. Neither one of them was willing to give an inch to the other but Rex simply had to push his limit, he had to go the extra mile to show Cage and the rest of the world that he was ready for his Pain for Pride match against Andrea Valentine. Although the Iron Man Match didn’t quite turned out the way he wanted to, he still had the last laugh before the night was over.
(The footage now cuts to the closing moments of Mr. DEDEDE versus Andrea Valentine. It shows how Andrea managed to pick up the win and then how she was confronted by Rex McAllister. Nobody saw that turn of events coming, not even Andrea. Rex laid her out with the Rex effect as Persephone rejoiced at commentary)
Narrator: Sometimes, the road to success takes us to unexpected turns. One must be willing to do anything he can to send a message to their opposition. And when they can’t do it within the squared circle, they can still allow their actions to speak louder than their words. And so, Rex McAllister took out Andrea Valentine just before their final confrontation at Pain for Pride. He put the entire world on notice. Season 13 it’s his season.
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Voltage returns and cuts back to the broadcast booth.)
James Peters: Welcome back to Voltage. Tonight’s second Voltage Rewind match is one I selected, and one that’s fitting when you consider that Charlie Marr and Malcolm Jones are about to square off against one another next weekend in the highlight anticipated Barbed Wire IV match. Their match at Bloodsport set this into motion, and who would have thought almost a year later, their feud would culminate in one of the most violent matches in EAW history? Let’s take a look back at the EAW World Championship match from Bloodsport!
[SCREEN BAR: Bloodsport: August 10th, 2019]
(The arena sits in a dark silence for a moment before the lights suddenly flood the arena and “It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta blasts through the sound system and Jordie Ripley walks out onto the stage with a microphone, drowned in boos. She soaks in the hate from the crowd before speaking.)
Jordie Ripley: Thank you, Boston! I love you too! And it is my great honor to present to you the next EAW Champion… the sexiest man alive… and the man I have the privilege of being with every night… CHARLIE MARR!!!!!!
(“It Ain’t Safe” picks back up as Charlie walks out wearing his leather trench coat and a psychotic looking face mask, covering just his mouth with a grate leaving his baby blue eyes open to be seen.)
James Peters: Well here comes a man who needs no introduction but receives one anyway. Charlie Marr has had a string of bad luck in his last few matches but tonight is the one that counts. And this match seems like it would favor the most evil man we know, as it’s going to be a brutal bloodbath with no escape!
(Charlie walks menacingly down to the ring with Jordie in short order behind him, looking giddy to be there with her man. Charlie walks up the steps and pauses on the apron as he looks out to the fans drowning him in hatred.)
Rich Rusillo: Charlie Marr is not a man I would doubt when it comes to bad intentions. He sees himself as the top man in this company and has the backing of the Voltage Co-Commissioner. It’s hard to argue when you see him in this position.
(Charlie reaches up to his face and slowly removes the mask, looking out to the fans with a psychotic grin and a maniacal laugh. He howls in laughter harder as the boos increase before finally climbing between the ropes, the cage hovering maybe seven feet above the ring.)
(Just then the lights fade again and a single spotlight opens on the stage.)
“THIS A MELO BEAT”
(The beat picks up and Pop Smoke steps out into the stage with a microphone to his mouth and performing “Welcome to the Party.”)
“Baby, welcome to the party
I’m off the Molly, the Xan, the Lean
That’s why I’m movin’ retarded
(That’s why I’m movin’ retarded)”
(Just then, Malcolm Jones steps out through the curtain with a crown on his head and the EAW Championship on his waist. He steps out and rocks with Pop Smoke for a second before dapping him up and walking towards the ramp.)
James Peters: The EAW Champion has defended the title in Hell in a Cell, Three Stages of Hell, and now an electrified steel cage of holy fuck. No one can ever say Malcolm Jones took the easy road with his title reign!
“Baby, welcome to the party (Uh?)
I hit the boy up and then I go skate in a ‘Rari
Baby, welcome to the party
Bitch I’m a thot, get me lit”
(Jones stops down and ringside and points over to someone in the crowd with a grin. Malcolm steps over and puts his arm around Kemba Walker. The camera comes in for a close up and Malcolm takes off the EAW Championship and holds it up between the two of them.)
Malcolm Jones (off-mic): I’m a champion now and forever. And this the goat, he bout to be a champion real soon. Y’all watch.
Rich Russillo: No one can argue that Malcolm Jones isn’t one of the top talents this company has seen. He wins the triple crown in the span of a single season not to mention the King of Elite in that same season and main evented Pain for Pride back to back. People tried to put him down for a long time but eventually you just look foolish trying to put this man down.
“Gun on my hip
One in the head, ten in the clip
Baby, baby don’t trip
Just lower your tone, ’cause you could get hit”
(Jones steps away from Kemba and slides into the ring, still holding the EAW Championship in his hand. He raises the title up high in the air as he gives Charlie a cocky grin and the music fades out.)
(The cage then begins to lower as we hear Bella Braxton’s voice ring through the speakers.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen… the following contest is an ELECTRIFIED STEEL CAGE OF DEATH MATCH!
Bella Braxton: And it is for the EAW CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, the challenger. From Tower Hamlets, London, in the United Kingdom… weighing in at 240 pounds… CHARRRRRLLLLLIIIIIEEEEEE MMMAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
(The crowd boos as Charlie puts his arms out, welcoming the hate.)
Bella Braxton: And Introducing the Champion… from Harlem, New York… weighing in at 220 pounds… he is the EAW CHAMPION… MAACCCOOOOLLLMMMMM JJJJOOOOONNNNNNNNNEEEEESSSSSS!!!
(Malcolm steps forward as the crowd give a mixed reaction and he holds the championship up in the air one more time. The referee then steps over and asks Malcolm for it. MJ looks at the title briefly, then nodding his head and handing it to the referee. The ref shows the title to Charlie who licks his lips with a sadistic smile. The referee then holds the belt up for the camera and hands it out to the time keeper. The referee signals to someone on the outside, and the cage then begins to lower, trapping the men inside. Another official on the outside then steps over and flips a switch, and several sparks then pop around the cage as the electricity is now turned on. The cage finishes lowering onto the ring apron, and the referee calls for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: :lupe: I’m honestly terrified of this match, James. We have literally seen everything here tonight, but this is going to go to a whole other level. These two men hate one another and have no respect for one another, and neither one of them is going to be the same after tonight.
James Peters: You said so much right there, because honestly I don’t see how they can ever be the same after this. There’s just something so completely evil about this match, far more evil than even Barbed Wire Massacre.
Rich Russillo: :usure:
James Peters: …. :lupe: we’re gunna find out, I guess.
(Charlie and Malcolm both look around at their surroundings before setting their sights on one another.)
Rich Russillo: Charlie lunges for Malcolm, looking to take him down! Malcolm sidesteps, wraps Charlie up from behind, and brings him down to the mat with a waistlock. Charlie muscles his way out of it and both men return to their feet. Charlie catches Malcolm with a chop to the chest and attempts to whip him into the cage! Malcolm puts the brakes on to keep himself from colliding with the cage and throws an elbow, catching Charlie in the jaw! Charlie stumbles back and Malcolm whirls around, however there’s Charlie Marr with dropkick! Malcolm is down and Charlie is going for the trash can of weapons!!!!
James Peters: We know how skilled Charlie is in these hardcore matches. He loves the sheer brutality of them.
Rich Russillo: Charlie has a kendo stick in his hands but he doesn’t see that Malcolm has gotten back to his feet. Charlie rushes towards Malcolm, swinging the kendo stick but Malcolm leaps in the air and catches Charlie with a kick to the side of the head! Charlie drops and Malcolm snatches up the kendo stick and starts taking it to Charlie!
James Peters: The champ is unloading on Charlie right now, and there’s nowhere for Charlie to really go right now. Remember, there are no ropes. This entire ring is surrounded by the electrified cage, so really these two men are at the mercy of one another right now. MALCOLM JUST SLAMMED THE KENDO STICK INTO THE BACK OF CHARLIE’S SKULL!!! MALCOLM IS DOWN ON THE MAT NOW AND HE GRABS CHARLIE IN A CROSSFACE POSITION… THAT KENDO STICK DIRECTLY ACROSS CHARLIE’S FACE!!! MALCOLM IS WRENCHING BACK ON CHARLIE’S NECK AS HARD AS HE CAN AND I KNOW WE’RE NOT ABOUT TO SEE A SUBMISSION NOW!
Rich Russillo: THIS MATCH IS BARELY UNDERWAY AND MALCOLM IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO MAKE CHARLIE TAP! CHARLIE IS DIGGING IN, LOOKING TO CRAWL, BUT THERE’S NOWHERE FOR HIM TO GO!!!! CHARLIE HAS GOT TO HOLD ON RIGHT NOW AND SEND A MESSAGE TO MALCOLM THAT HE IS IN THIS MATCH FOR THE LONG HAUL! MALCOLM WRAPS HIS LEFT ARM AROUND CHARLIE’S NECK AND IS NOW USING THAT KENDO STICK TO BASH CHARLIE IN THE NOSE! OVER AND OVER MALCOLM SLAMS THE STICK INTO CHARLIE’S NOSE, BUSTING IT OPEN! CHARLIE’S BLOOD IS DRIPPING ONTO THE MAT NOW AND MALCOLM FINALLY RELEASES CHARLIE, MAKING SURE TO SLAM HIS FACE DOWN INTO THE MAT!
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM LEAPS UP, PULLS MARR BACK TO HIS FEET, AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE CAGE!
James Peters: :damn: :damn: :damn:
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE JUST GOT ELECTROCUTED BY THE CAGE! HOLY SHIT JAMES! DUDE JUST GOT THE SHIT ZAPPED OUT OF HIM!
James Peters: :lupe: How much electricity do you think is pulsating through that cage??
Rich Russillo: well… someone told me earlier today that the electric current is equivalent to a really weak lighting bolt.
James Peters: :skip: What the fuck is a really weak lighting bolt??
Rich Russillo: Idk… like one during a light rain shower as opposed to one during a hurricane. Like I don’t think this is going to cause a heart attack or long term neurological damage, but second degree burns are probable.
James Peters: :skip: :skip: :skip:
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM PULLS CHARLIE UP AND THROWS HIM INTO THE CAGE AGAIN!
James Peters: MALCOLM DEADLIFTS CHARLIE UP….. RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! CHARLIE SLAMS INTO THE CAGE FOR A THIRD TIME! MALCOLM GRABS CHARLIE AND HE GOES FOR A COVER!!!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!
James Peters: Malcolm takes the challenger, pulling him back to his feet. Charlie shoves Malcolm back but the champ catches Charlie with a kick to the gut! Malcolm grabs Charlie by the head and RAMS HIM INT- NO! CHARLIE GOT HIS FOOT UP BUT THE ELECTRICITY OF THE CAGE JUST ZAPPED CHARLIE AND HE DROPS INTO A KNEELING POSITION! MALCOLM WITH A KNEE TO THE FACE THAT CATCHES CHARLIE! MALCOLM FORCES CHARLIE’S FACE TOWARDS THE CA-
Rich Russillo: JORDIE JUST THREW POWDER IN MALCOLM’S FACE!
James Peters: SO THAT’S HOW JORDIE IS GOING TO GET INVOLVED TONIGHT! We knew damn well that she would figure out some kind of way to come to Charlie’s aid, and that clever little bitch just tossed a handful of baby powder into Malcolm’s eyes. :wow:
Rich Russillo: The distraction has allowed Charlie to get back to his feet and this is the first time he’s able to grab control of this match! Charlie immediately begins hammering away on Malcolm… rights and lefts connecting all over Malcolm! Charlie grabs Malcolm and hooks him AND HE JUST THROWS HIM INTO THE SIDE OF THE CAGE WITH A SNAP SUPLEX!
(The crowd gasps as the EAW World Champion is shocked by the cage!)
James Peters: CHARLIE TAKES HIS FOOT AND PRESSES IT AGAINST MALCOLM’S HEAD… DEAR GOD :lupe: Um…
Rich Russillo: :damn:
James Peters: CHARLIE BACKS UP AND RUSHES FORWARD… BASEMENT STYLE DROPKICK! MALCOLM IS SLAMMED INTO THE CAGE ONCE AGAIN!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE GRABS MALCOLM AND GOES FOR HIS FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!!!
James Peters: MALCOLM KICKS OUT!
Rich Russillo: Charlie mounts Malcolm and begins peppering him with stiff forearm shots! The champ has spent the last several minutes getting completely brutalized by the cage itself, and these forearm shots are stiff as fuck. We know Charlie is one of the hardest hitters on the Voltage roster and he’s looking to draw blood with just his bare hands. However, Malcolm is as tough as they come.
James Peters: CHARLIE GRABS MALCOLM BACK UP AND THROWS HIM AGAINST THE CAGE! HE CHARGES FORWARD AND CATCHES MALCOLM WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE! EVERY TIME ONE OF THESE MEN CONNECT WITH THAT CAGE THEIR BODIES ARE SHOCKED!
Rich Russillo: Man. I really don’t know how they’re going to be able to endure this match for the long haul. This is inhumane.
James Peters: Charlie goes to look for a weapon now! He digs around in the trashcan and pulls out a roll of razor wire! Charlie wraps that wire around his fist and he walks back over to Malcolm. Malcolm reaches up AND GRABS CHARLIE FOR A ROLL UP!!!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE KICKS OUT AND JUMPS TO HIS FEET!! HE CATCHES MALCOLM IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH A DROPKICK AND SLAMS HIS LOADED FIST INTO MALCOLM’S SKULL!!! CHARLIE IS RAINING DOWN HAMMER FISTED SHOTS ON THE BACK OF THE CHAMP’S SKULL! CHARLIE HAS BUSTED THE EAW WORLD CHAMP OPEN AND BLOOD IS POURING FROM THAT WOUND!!! CHARLIE RIPS THE RAZOR WIRE FROM HIS HAND AND QUICKLY WRAPS IT AROUND MALCOLM’S THROAT!!! THE CHAMP IS HAVING THE LIFE CHOKED OUT OF HIM!!! CHARLIE DRAGS MALCOLM TOWARDS THE SIDE OF THE CAGE… HOISTS HIM UP… AND SLAMS MALCOLM INTO THE SIDE OF THE CAGE BY THE NECK! MALCOLM’S BODY COLLIDES WITH THE ELECTRIFIED STEEL OF THE CAGE AND HE HAS SEVERAL TRILLION VOLTS OF ELECTRICITY SHOT THROUGH HIM ONCE AGAIN!!!
James Peters: That’s why we’re called Voltage :wow:
Rich Russillo: Corny ass.
James Peters: CHARLIE DROPPING SEVERAL KNEES ACROSS THE THROAT OF MALCOLM JONES NOW!! HOW THAT RAZOR WIRE HASN’T NICKED AN ARTERY IS BEYOND ME, RICH!!!
Rich Russillo: Malcolm has thick skin :wow: He stays deflecting all them shots thrown at him.
James Peters: Now who’s fucking corny?
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE ROLLS MALCOLM BACK INTO THE RING AND NAILS HIM WITH A LEG DROP! CHARLIE WITH A COVER!!
James Peters: KICKOUT BY THE CHAMP!!!
Rich Russillo: Charlie looks a little frustrated but he picks Malcolm, wrapping him a side headlock! Malcolm somehow manages to elbow his way out, and now both men are locking up! They’re jockeying back and forth for position now, and since neither man really has a size and strength advantage, they are both pretty much at a stalemate! These two have put one another through a lot of abuse already, and Malcolm still has that razor wire wrapped around his neck. However it’s the champ who drives his knee into Charlie’s mid-section, and follows it up with a knee to the groin!
James Peters: Charlie drops to his knees and Malcolm nails him in the face! Charlie sprawls back on the mat and now Malcolm is unwrapping the wire from his neck! Wait a second… Malcolm is wrapping that crap around his forearm now and he’s pulling Charlie up by the beard! Malcolm slams his forearm into Charlie’s face… WHIPS HIM INTO THE CAGE AND BARRELS TOWARDS HIM! MALCOLM WITH A LEAPING FOREARM SMASH TO THE BACK OF CHARLIE’S HEAD AND CHARLIE’S FACE JUST GOT FRIED!!!!
Rich Russillo: DID THE CAGE JUST SINGE HIS BEARD?!
(The camera gets a close up shot of Charlie’s face and sure enough, his glorious beard is a little worse for the wear.)
James Peters: :mjcry: Not the beard.
Rich Russillo: I cri. :mjcry:
James Peters: MALCOLM GRABS CHARLIE FROM BEHIND AND HITS HIM WITH A BACKSTABBER! THE CHAMP MOUNTS CHARLIE AND MALCOLM IS PUMMELING CHARLIE WITH LOADED FOREARM SHOTS NOW! THAT RAZOR WIRE IS RIPPING CHARLIE’S FACE UP AND HE IS A BLOODY MESS RIGHT NOW! OH. MY. GAWD.
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM WRAPS HIS LOADED FOREARM AROUND CHARLIE’S NECK AND DRAGS HIM UP TO HIS FEET! HE’S GOT THAT SIDE HEADLOCK CINCHED IN TIGHTLY AND HE’S LOOKING TO RAM CHARLIE HEAD FIRST INTO THE CAGE!
James Peters: CHARLIE DROPS TO HIS KNEES IN AN ATTEMPT TO STOP THE MOMENTUM, BUT MALCOLM ISN’T LETTING GO! MALCOLM TRANSITIONS INTO ANOTHER CROSSFACE AND THIS TIME THAT RAZOR WIRE IS PRESSED AGAINST CHARLIE’S FACE! CHARLIE IS STRUGGLING TO STAY IN THIS MATCH RIGHT NOW AND MALCOLM JONES IS JUST RUTHLESS RIGHT NOW! THE REFEREE IS ASKING CHARLIE IF HE QUITS BUT CHARLIE IS REFUSING!
Rich Russillo: We have seen Charlie Marr survive these extreme circumstances so many times, but Malcolm is a different type of opponent. He’s a once in a generation type of talent, and has absolutely no fucks to give. He’s releasing Charlie now, who’s honestly a bloody and disgusting mess right now, and he’s looking to throw him against the side of the cage!
James Peters: Charlie has enough wherewithal to hit a baseball slide, keeping himself from colliding face first with the cage, and Malcolm is back on the attack! He is hammering his forearm into Charlie’s chest right now, just tearing Charlie’s flesh and leaving him in even worse shape! Malcolm pulls Charlie up by the beard and nails him in the face with a knee! Malcolm with a series of knee strikes now and he knocks Charlie against the mat! Malcolm with a standing shooting star press and he goes for the cover!!!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!
James Peters: Malcolm wastes little time getting Charlie back to his feet. He grabs Charlie in a side headlock, pressing the razor wire into Charlie’s neck and face! Charlie has got to find a way back into this match, and you can see he’s trying. Charlie elbows Malcolm in the gut and tries to fight his way back into this, but Malcolm clubs him the back of the head, and drops Charlie to a knee. Charlie forces his way back up, and grabs Malcolm in a collar and elbow tie up, but Malcolm immediately drives his knee into Charlie’s stomach and catches him with an uppercut! Charlie stumbles back and Malcolm looks for a clothesline, but Charlie ducks! Charlie leaps up for a dropkick, but Malcolm side steps! Malcolm grabs Charlie BUT CHARLIE HITS MALCOLM WITH A LOW BLOW!!!
Rich Russillo: Well that’s one way to get back into the match.
James Peters: Charlie is crawling towards the corner now and grabs the trash can, dumping all that shit onto the mat. I think half this crap is left over from the Consuela versus Jesse match.
Rich Russillo: :skip: Is that a railroad spike?
James Peters: :skip: Um…
Rich Russillo: Charlie’s gripped that railroad spike and he’s crawling towards Malcolm. CHARLIE RAISES THAT THING IN THE AIR AND BRINGS IT DOWN ON MAL- NO! MALCOLM ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY AND CHARLIE STABS THE MAT INSTEAD! CHARLIE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET AND HE PULLS MALCOLM UP AS WELL!
James Peters: COLLAR AND ELBOW TIE UP BY THESE TWO AGAIN AND CHARLIE STARTS FORCING MALCOLM TOWARDS THE CAGE! THE CHAMP PLANTS HIS FEET, REFUSING TO LET CHARLIE OUT MUSCLE HIM, AND HE BEGINS TO FORCE CHARLIE BACK NOW! CHARLIE ALSO PLANTS HIS PLANTS, AND THESE TWO ARE AT A STALEMATE!
Rich Russillo: Charlie slips behind Malcolm, and grabs him around the waist trying for a German suplex! Malcolm quickly reverses, and now he’s behind Charlie, trying for a German of his own. Charlie elbows his way out, grabs Malcolm around the neck, and snapmares him onto the mat! Charlie quickly wraps the champ up in a sleeper hold, but Malcolm gets his feet underneath him, and works his way back up to a vertical base. He fends off Charlie, grabs the challenger by the arm, and arm drag take down and Malcolm maintains control of the arm!
James Peters: Charlie rolls forward and returns to his feet, effectively reversing the wrist lock and putting himself back in control. Malcolm catches Charlie with a boot to the gut, and he grabs Charlie, looking to spike him into the mat with a DDT!!! Charlie is quick to get away and he gets behind Malcolm… SHOVING HIM FORWARD!!!!
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM THROWS HIS HANDS UP ON INSTINCT AND CATCHES THE CAGE, WHICH PROVES TO BE A HUGE MISTAKE! CHARLIE RIPS MALCOLM OFF THE CAGE AND ROLLS HIM UP FROM BEHIND!!!!
James Peters: MALCOLM KICKS OUT AND BOTH MEN ARE BACK UP NOW! MALCOLM RUSHES TOWARDS CHARLIE, DRIVING HIS SHOULDER INTO CHARLIE’S ABDOMEN! CHARLIE RAINS HIS FISTS DOWN ON MALCOLM BUT MALCOLM LIFTS HIM UP AND PLANTS HIM INTO THE MAT WITH A SPINEBUSTER! MALCOLM GRABS THE RAILROAD SPIKE THAT CHARLIE TRIED TO USE EARLIER AND HE JABS IT INTO CHARLIE’S FOREHEAD! MALCOLM DRAGS THE SPIKE ACROSS CHARLIE’S FOREHEAD AND THE FORMER UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION JUST HAD THAT SKIN RIPPED OPEN! MALCOLM STABS THE SPIKE INTO THAT WOUND CAUSING FURTHER DAMAGE AND STABS CHARLIE IN THE FOREHEAD AGAIN! MALCOLM TOSSES THE SPIKE TO THE SIDE AND BEGINS HITTING CHARLIE WITH MORE RAZOR WIRE WRAPPED FOREARMS! MALCOLM PULLS CHARLIE UP TO HIS FEET AND GOES TO LAY HIM OUT WITH A SWINGING NECKBREAKER BUT CHARLIE SHOVES MALCOLM OFF HIM! MALCOLM WHIRLS AROUND RIGHT AS CHARLIE TRIES TO TAKE HIM DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE, BUT MALCOLM IS ABLE TO DUCK! MALCOLM GRABS CHARLIE… HIP TOSS INTO THE CAGE!!! CHARLIE JUST GOT ELECTROCUTED AGAIN!!!!
Rich Russillo: :lupe:
James Peters: MALCOLM PULLS CHARLIE AWAY FROM THE SIDE OF THE CAGE AND GOES FOR A COVER!!!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE KICKS OUT!!!!
James Peters: Malcolm immediately digs his fingers into Charlie’s skin and begins to open up those wounds even further. Charlie has lost so much blood tonight and honestly, this is a side of Malcolm Jones I didn’t even know existed. He’s so bloodthirsty tonight, and just hellbent on absolutely annihilating Charlie, and making sure ‘Main Event’ Marr knows his place here in EAW. Honestly, he might kill Charlie.
Rich Russillo: It won’t be the first death we see here tonight.
James Peters: RIP Big Paul Joshua.
Rich Russillo: Charlie gets his feet up and begins kicking at Malcolm to force him back. Charlie’s got to get back to his feet, and get himself together because since the bell rang, it has been mostly Malcolm Jones dominating this match. Charlie does manage to roll out of the way, and sit up, pushing himself up as Malcolm comes charging at him.
James Peters: DROP TOE HOLD BY CHARLIE AND MALCOLM JUST LANDED AGAINST THE CAGE! THE CHAMP ROLLS AWAY FROM THAT ELECTRIFIED STEEL AND CHARLIE NEEDS TO GET UP AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SITUATION NOW.
(On the outside of the ring, Jordie Ripley has gone behind the Spanish announce booth and she appears to be looking for something.)
Rich Russillo: What the hell is she doing?
(Jordie emerges from underneath the desk with nearly half a dozen light tubes in her arms.)
James Peters: Jordie Ripley just took one of those light tubes and carefully slipped it between one of the openings in the cage. Charlie was right there on the other side to take it from her, and you know something? I gotta give them props for that. It seems like nothing is going to ever stop these two from working together.
(Inside the ring, Charlie lays all the light tubes down in a pile except for one.)
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE JUST SLAMMED A LIGHT TUBE IN MALCOLM’S FACE AS THE EAW WORLD CHAMP WAS GETTING BACK UP! CHARLIE GATHERS MALCOLM UP… THE HEADMASTER RITUAL! THE SPINEBUSTER TO THE PILE OF LIGHT TUBES!!! CHARLIE THROWS HIS BODY OVER MALCOLM!!!!
James Peters: NO!!! MALCOLM GOT THE SHOULDER UP!
Rich Russillo: Charlie immediately grabs Malcolm, hoists him up, and suplexes him down onto the glass!!! :lupe: Oh my man. Look at Malcolm’s back. It has glass imbedded in it.
James Peters: Charlie just scooped up a handful of glass AND HE SHOVED IT IN MALCOLM’S MOUTH!!! :damn:
Rich Russillo: :damn:
James Peters: CHARLIE WITH A SUPERKICK THAT CONNECTS WITH MALCOLM’S KISSER AND HE GOES FOR THE COVER!!!
Rich Russillo: SLKDFJSLDFK SD;FLJSDFDLFKJSLDF HE KICKED OUT! MALCOLM KICKED OUT!!!!
James Peters: But look at the champ though! He’s coughing and choking, and spitting up blood right now. No doubt he swallowed some of that glass and it’s probably stuck in his throat!
Rich Russillo: :lupe:!!!! I guess Charlie doesn’t want to listen to anymore screechy Malstraea Jornes promos.
James Peters: :mjgrin:
Rich Russillo: Charlie has Malcolm by the hair now and he is dragging him over to the side of the cage! CHARLIE SHOVES MALCOLM’S FACE INTO THE STEEL AND IS NOW DRAGGING MALCOLM’S FACE ACROSS THE CAGE! ASDLJLSJDKASLKDJ THIS IS INHUMANE!!!!
James Peters: Holy shit. Malcolm’s bloody face is being tortured right now :lupe:
Rich Russillo: JORDIE RIPLEY JUST STABBED MALCOLM IN THE HEAD WITH A SET OF WOODEN SKEWERS!!!
(Malcolm falls back, several of those skewers stuck in his skull. The camera cuts to a shot of Kemba Walker, who quite frankly looks taken aback.)
James Peters: Well Kemba is shook.
Rich Russillo: Well this aint the pussy ass NBA. Not sure what the fuck he really expected from this match. It was never going to be pretty.
James Peters: :whoa: Why the sudden burst of anger?
Rich Russillo: Kemba overrated as fuck.
James Peters: You just saying that because Malcolm Jones just stabbed in the head with about fifty wooden skewers and can’t beat your ass.
Rich Russillo: You’re goddamn right.
James Peters: :wow:
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE WITH A SCOOP SLAM! MALCOLM LANDS BACK IN THE GLASS AND CHARLIE IS STOMPING AWAY ON MALCOLM NOW! MALCOLM EATS SEVERAL DOZEN STOMPS TO THE FACE AND CHEST, AND CHARLIE NOW GRABS THE EMPTY TRASHCAN! HE PLACES IT ACROSS MALCOLM’S FACE… DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! CHARLIE QUICKLY DROPS DOWN AND GOES FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: NO!!! HOW IS MALCOLM CONTINUING TO KICK OUT RIGHT NOW?!
Rich Russillo: The heart of a champion, James! It’s going to take a monumental effort to get that title away from Malcolm Jones tonight.
James Peters: You can see the frustration setting in for Charlie, though. He’s glaring at the referee, but nevertheless he gets up and grabs Malcolm. Malcolm is on spaghetti legs right now and Charlie with a European uppercut that catches Malcolm! Charlie with a stiff right hand, followed by a left! He unloads on Malcolm now, but look at the champ! MALCOLM MANAGES TO CATCH CHARLIE WITH THE FOREARM! MALCOLM WITH ANOTHER! MALCOLM WITH A THIRD FOREARM SHOT! MALCOLM DROPS DOWN AND BRINGS HIS LOADED FOREARM UP BETWEEN CHARLIE’S LEGS
Rich Russillo: Well… that’s one effective way to stop Charlie’s momentum. Sheer desperation by Malcolm Jones but I’m not sure he had much choice. Charlie Marr has been dominating the last few minutes of this match and Malcolm has taken a ton of abuse. MJ is looking around for a weapon now and he grabs the closest thing to him… A BARBED WIRE WRAPPED 2X4!!!!! MALCOLM IS BACK TO HIS FEET AND HE SLAMS THE 2X4 ACROSS CHARLIE’S FACE! MALCOLM RAISES IT ABOVE HIS HEAD AGAIN AND BRINGS IT DOWN ACROSS CHARLIE’S CHEST! NOW MALCOLM IS JUST BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF CHARLIE! MALCOLM TAKES THE 2X4 TO CHARLIE’S FACE ONCE AGAIN AND NOW HE IS DRAGGING IT DOWN THE MAN’S FACE AND CHEST! MALCOLM LAYS THE BOARD ACROSS CHARLIE’S FACE ONCE AGAIN… LEG DROP!!!!! MALCOLM WITH THE COVER NOW!!!!
James Peters: CHARLIE IS STILL ALIVE IN THIS MATCH!
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM SNATCHES CHARLIE UP AND OUT OF SHEER ANNOYANCE HE WHIPS HIM INTO THE CAGE!!!! I think I’ve lost count the number of times we’ve seen someone get electrocuted, but Charlie seems a bit worse for the where at the moment!
James Peters: MALCOLM TOSSES THAT BARBED WIRE 2X4 AT CHARLIE, WHO CATCHES IT, AND NOW MALCOLM WITH A RUNNING KNEE! THAT 2X4 SLAMS INTO CHARLIE’S FACE AND MALCOLM WITH A DROP KICK! CHARLIE IS KNOCKED INTO THE CAGE ONCE AGAIN AND ALL THOSE ELECTRICAL SHOCKS HAVE GOT TO BE TAKING THEIR TOLL ON CHARLIE! MALCOLM TAKES THE 2X4 AND ONCE AGAIN BEGINS TO BEAT CHARLIE WITH IT! HE PULLS CHARLIE INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND BEGINS CHOKING HIM WITH THAT WEAPON!
Rich Russillo: Charlie is kicking and flailing! He’s grabbing at the 2×4 and trying to get away! But Malcolm is on top of him with that thing pressed firmly against Charlie’s throat! Despite the fact Charlie’s face is caked with dried blood, you can see he’s turning purple and I know we’ve said this a dozen times already, but it just doesn’t look good for Big Dick Bharlie. Malcolm tosses the 2×4 to the side and is now using his own bare hands to choke out Charlie!
James Peters: Malcolm finally grabs Charlie and lifts him up… BRIDGING GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE. STAYS. ALIVE!!!
James Peters: MALCOLM DROPS SEVERAL KNEES DOWN ACROSS CHARLIE’S FACE AND HE’S PICKING HIM BACK UP NOW! MALCOLM TAKES CHARLIE AND PLANTS HIM WITH A BULLDOG RIGHT INTO THAT 2X4!!!
Rich Russillo: Malcolm is finally taking the time to unwrap that razor wrap from around his forearm and TURN ABOUT IS FAIR PLAY JAMES BECAUSE HE JUST BALLED IT UP AND SHOVED IT IN CHARLIE’S MOUTH!!! I GUESS MALCOLM GOT A LITTLE SICK OF HEARING CHARLIE THIS WEEK AND WATCHING HIS INTERESTING PROMO VIDEOS!!! SUPERKICK TO CHARLIE! MJ WITH THE COVER!!!
James Peters: CHARLIE KICKS OUT!!!!
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM RIPS OUT THE RAZOR WIRE AND BLOOD IS JUST POURING FROM CHARLIE’S MOUTH NOW! MALCOLM PLACES IT ON TOP OF CHARLIE’S HEAD AND POUNDS IT INTO THE TOP OF CHARLIE’S SKULL!!!!
James Peters: Somewhere backstage Dr. Bethany Blue is watching this match with stars in her eyes. It just screams Hepatitis nightmare.
Rich Russillo: Well Charlie is shacking up with a former Las Vegas cocktail waitress and stripper :lupe:
James Peters: :lupe:
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM PICKS UP CHARLIE AND THROWS HIM ACROSS HIS SHOULDER… AND HE JUST RAMMED CHARLIE HEAD FIRST INTO THE CAGE!!! MALCOLM BACKS UP… AND HE RAMS CHARLIE INTO THE CAGE AGAIN! OVER AND OVER MALCOLM RAMS CHARLIE INTO THE SIDE OF THE CAGE! CHARLIE’S BRAINS HAVE GOT TO BE SCRAMBLED AT THIS POINT! MALCOLM WITH A MILITARY PRESS OVER HIS HEAD AND HE JUST HAULS CHARLIE INTO THE SIDE OF THE CAGE!!!!
(Charlie’s exhausted, battered, and bloodied body is once again zapped with electricity. The camera cuts to Jordie, who’s watching with fear in her eyes.)
James Peters: Malcolm just needs to go ahead and end this match right now. Both men have suffered enough. I don’t care what your personal opinions of them are, they’re both human beings dammit. They don’t deserve this and fuck anyone who’s enjoying this sort of brutality.
Rich Russillo: … I like it, tho.
James Peters: O.
(Malcolm stands over Charlie, and even though he’s in just as bad shape, the EAW World Champion is smiling. Malcolm has retrieved the railroad spike.)
Rich Russillo: I think Malcolm is about the end the hopes and dreams of Charlie Marr…
James Peters: HEY! JORDIE RIPLEY JUST SNATCHED ALL OF OUR WATER BOTTLES FROM THE TABLE!
(The crowd, who have mostly watched the match in horror, gasp as Jordie begins throwing water onto the cage’s door in an attempt to short circuit it! Sparks start to fly as the referee and Malcolm both turn their attention to her! Malcolm starts screaming at Jordie, who yanks the cap off a full bottle of water and hurls the liquid inside the ring! Malcolm is quick to dart out of the way but the referee ends up soaked.)
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE HAS STAGGERED BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND HE THROWS HIMSELF AT MALCOLM! THEY SLAM INTO THE REFEREE AND OH MY FUCKING GAWD. THE REFEREE FALLS INTO THE CAGE!!!!
James Peters: :damn:
Crowd: :damn: :lupe: LSKDJFLSDKJFLSDKF SDLFJ SLDFKJ SLDKFJ SLDKFJ SLDJF SLDFJ LSDKJFSDF
Rich Russillo: Oh sweet Jesus…
(The referee is down and convulsing on the mat.)
James Peters: MEANWHILE JORDIE RIPLEY HAS YANKED OPEN THE DOOR OF THE CAGE AND GOTTEN INSIDE! SHE JUMPS ON MALCOLM’S BACK AND DIGS HER FINGERNAILS INTO HIS EYES! MALCOLM SHAKES OFF JORDIE AND SHE TUMBLES TO THE GROUND! HE SNATCHES HER UP BY THE HAIR AND RAMS HER INTO THE SIDE OF THE CAGE! I CAN’T EVEN BEGIN TO IMAGINE THE PAIN JORDIE RIPLEY JUST EXPERIENCED AS THOSE ELECTRIC CURRENTS RAN THROUGH HER BODY!!!!
Rich Russillo: The cage door is still sparking from where she threw water on it, and now the rest of the cage seems to be malfunctioning as well. This shit could go up in flames…
James Peters: You act like we didn’t have a Flaming Weapons match earlier…
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE HAS TAKEN MALCOLM DOWN FROM BEHIND AND HAS JABBED HIM IN THE SHOULDER WITH THE RAILROAD SPIKE! MALCOLM HAS JUST BEEN STABBED BUT HE’S SOMEHOW STILL FIGHTING! HE AND CHARLIE ARE ROLLING AROUND IN THIS NASTY, BLOODY RING FIGHTING FOR CONTROL OF THE RAILROAD SPIKE AND IT’S MALCOLM WHO WRESTLES IT AWAY FROM CHARLIE! MALCOLM HAS CONTROL OF THE SPIKE AND HE SLAMS IT INTO CHARLIE’S FOREHEAD! FRESH BLOOD IS POURING DOWN CHARLIE’S FACE NOW AND MALCOLM IS GOING TO END THIS MATCH NOW! MALCOLM IS CARVING UP CHARLIE’S HEAD WITH THAT SPIKE AND HE THROWS IT TO THE SIDE. MALCOLM BRINGS CHARLIE UP AND HOOKS HIM IN POSITION! THE L-TRAIN! THE CANADIAN DESTROYER CONNECTS ON CHARLIE AND MALCOLM HAS HIM PINNED!
Crowd: 1… 2… 3!!!!
James Peters: THIS CROWD CAN COUNT TO 100 BECAUSE THERE IS NO REFEREE! HE’S LIKELY DEAD! MALCOLM JONES IS ABSOLUTELY FURIOUS RIGHT NOW BECAUSE HE LITERALLY SHOULD HAVE RETAINED HIS CHAMPIONSHIP JUST NOW! WE NEED ANOTHER REFEREE OUT HERE RIGHT AWAY!
(“Me” by Taylor Swift featuring Brendon Urie begins to blast across the public address system and the crowd absolutely loses their shit.)
Rich Russillo: :noah: NOT HER!
(The jeers get even louder once Veena strolls out from behind the guerilla curtain wearing a fitted referee’s shirt, small black high-waisted shorts, and black and white Nikes.)
James Peters: NO! PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD NO!
Rich Russillo: #NOTMYREFEREE
(The look on Malcolm’s face is priceless as Veena blows him a kiss and twirls a strand of platinum hair around her perfectly manicured finger.)
James Peters: Where the fuck is Captain Charisma?!
Rich Russillo: Malcolm is doing everything he can to control his rage right now, especially considering the fact he had Charlie beat. The champ turns around and goes back to work, BUT THERE’S JORDIE! SHE JUST HIT MALCOLM IN THE FACE WITH THE 2X4!!! MALCOLM IS DOWN AND JORDIE GRABS CHARLIE, DRAGGING HIS BODY OVER MALCOLM’S! NO! NO! NO! FUCK THIS!
James Peters: VEENA JUST GOT IN THE RING AND IS COUNTING!
Rich Russillo: NO! NO! NO! NO!
James Peters: :damn:
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM. KICKED. OUT. FUCK. YES.
James Peters: VEENA SCREAMS AT JORDIE TO FINISH MALCOLM AND SHE RAISES THE 2X4 OVER HER HEAD! JORDIE SLAMS IT DOWN ON MALCOLM’S FA- NO! MALCOLM CAUGHT IT! MALCOLM CAUGHT! MALCOLM CAUGHT THE 2X4 AND JORDIE ISN’T STRONG ENOUGH TO WRESTLE IT AWAY FROM HIM! JORDIE LETS GO OF THE WEAPON AND FALLS ON HER BOTTOM, AND MALCOLM GETS TO HIS FEET! HE GRABS JORDIE BY THE HAIR AND DRAGS HER OVER TO CHARLIE!
Malcolm Jones (Off Mic): This your daddy? This overrated, overhyped, Taliban looking mother fucker?
(Malcolm takes the 2×4 and points it at Jordie.)
Malcolm Jones (Off Mic): Fuck both of you.
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM LETS GO OF JORDIE AND GOES TO SLAM THE 2X4 DOWN ON TOP OF CHARLIE!
James Peters: BUT CHARLIE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! CHARLIE MOVED! THE 2X4 SLAMS INTO THE MAT AND BY GAWD! CHARLIE IS SOMEHOW ON HIS FEET NOW! MALCOLM WHIRLS AROUND… SWINGING WILDLY, BUT CHARLIE LEAPS OVER THE 2X4 AND MALCOLM MISSES HIM! CHARLIE WITH A DROP KICK AND THAT THING GOES FLYING OUT OF MALCOLM’S HAND! CHARLIE WITH A FOREARM TO MALCOLM THAT CATCHES THE CHAMP IN THE FACE! MALCOLM FIRES BACK! CHARLIE WITH A FOREARM! MALCOLM WITH A FOREARM! CHARLIE! MALCOLM! CHARLIE! MALCOLM! CHARLIE! MALCOLM! BLOOD IS FLYING EVERYWHERE AND BOTH MEN ARE HITTING ONE ANOTHER AS HARD AS THEY CAN!!!!
Rich Russillo: This truly is a Bloodsport :wow:
James Peters: IT’S MALCOLM WHO GRABS CHARLIE BY THE BEARD AND SLAMS HIS KNEE INTO CHARLIE’S GUT! HE GRABS CHARLIE BY THE NECK AND SHOVES HIM FORWARD! CHARLIE GETS HIS ARMS UP BUT HE COLLIDES WITH THE CAGE AND MALCOLM GRABS CHARLIE AND ROLLS HIM UP!
Rich Russillo: VEENA DOESN’T BOTHER TO GET DOWN AND COUNT AND MALCOLM LETS GO OF CHARLIE! MALCOLM STORMS OVER TO VEENA WHO THROWS HER HANDS UP! MALCOLM JONES AND VEENA ADAMS ARE FACE TO FACE NOW AND MALCOLM HAS HIS HAND CLENCHED INTO A FIST! PUNCH HER MALCOLM! JUST FUCKING DOING IT!!!
James Peters: BUT WAIT!!!!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE MARR GRABS MALCOLM BY THE TIGHTS AND ROLLS HIM UP! CHARLIE WITH A ROLL UP! HE HAS THE TIGHTS! VEENA DROPS TO HER KNEES!!!!!
Veena Adams (Off Mic): RING THE BELL!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: NO! NO! THAT IS NOT THE ENDING! PLEASE FUCKING TELL ME THAT IS NOT THE END OF MALCOLM JONES’ EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN!
(Veena has slipped out of the cage and has snatched the EAW World Championship from the timekeeper’s table. She barks at Bella to do her job.)
Bella Braxton: …. Ladies and gentlemen… uh… your winner and NEW EAW World Champion… Charlie Marr…
(“It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta blasts across the PA system as the cage begins to rise. Jordie throws herself into Charlie’s arms and wraps her arms around his neck. Charlie almost looks a little stunned at the turn of events.)
Rich Russillo: ….
(Charlie and Jordie quickly roll out of the ring and join Veena on the outside, while an absolutely shocked and furious Malcolm Jones remains in the middle of the ring. Veena passes the EAW World Championship to Charlie and raises his hand, and Charlie glances at the title. Veena lets him go and Charlie takes a minute to hold the championship in both hands and look down at it. It was the one thing they said he would never win. No one gave him a fighting chance in this match. There wasn’t a single soul inside the TD Garden who had wanted him to beat Malcolm. An evil smirk crosses Charlie’s beaten up and swollen face and he raises the title in the air.)
James Peters: In all my years of doing this, I honestly don’t even know what to say right now…
(Trash and debris are hurled at Charlie, Jordie, and Veena.)
Rich Russillo: Look at MJ right now…
(There’s only one emotion on Malcolm’s face right now, and that is of anger. His eyes are on the grinning Charlie Marr, who’s currently holding up the belt and kissing Jordie will being pelted with garbage. Veena is beaming, having clearly orchestrated this herself, and for someone like Malcolm, someone so passionately angry all the time, it’s the last straw.)
James Peters: MALCOLM JONES IS OUT OF THE RING AND HE’S MADE A BEELINE FOR CHARLIE! CHARLIE GRABS JORDIE AND THE TWO OF THEM JUMP INTO THE CROWD! MALCOLM SKIDS TO A STOP AND NOW HE TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO VEENA! VEENA’S JAW DROPS AND SHE TURNS AROUND, STARTING TO RUN! MALCOLM CATCHES HER BY THE ARM AND JUST SLAMMED HIS FIST RIGHT INTO HER FACE! OH MY GOD! MJ HAS SNAPPED! MJ HAS SNAPPED!
(EAW officials and security come rushing down to the ring as Malcolm literally beats the hell out of Veena. She’s completely defenseless and it takes an entire team of referees to pull Malcolm off of Veena! Medics have rushed down to check on Veena, as well as several members of the EAW board. Malcolm is fighting and struggling, kicking and swearing and fighting off everyone he can in an attempt to just kill the Chairman’s niece. It takes Ashten Cross and Jon Conning both to help security and the referees get control of Malcolm and keep him from doing any further damage.
Veena has been helped into a sitting position, and her pale face has already turned purple and her left eye is swollen shut. She spits blood and is visibly shaken, but there’s not a single person inside the building who feels sorry for her. The medics help her up, while security drags Malcolm away. Veena shoves off the medics and staggers towards Bella, ripping the microphone from her hands.)
Veena Adams: MALCOLM! HEY MALCOLM JONES!!
(Malcolm shrugs off the security guards who are holding him and turns around, staring down the ramp at Veena. Ashten Cross and Jon Conning are trying to talk to her and calm her down, but Veena starts screaming at them. Conning throws his hands up and Cross closes his eyes, because everyone damn well knows that no one is going to beat the shit out of Veena Adams and get away with it.)
(An evil smile crosses Veena’s destroyed face.)
Veena Adams: YOU’RE FIRED!
(Malcolm goes to rush down the ramp but he is literally tackled by security. This time they have to handcuff him in order to subdue him and keep him from further digging his own grave.)
(The camera cuts to the backstage area where Matt Daniels is seen watching the chaos and fuckery unfold on a monitor.)
Matt Daniels: They pulled it off…
(Matt is stunned as he watches Malcolm being hauled out of the scene. The camera cuts to Veena, who is bickering with Cross and Conning, no doubt over the fact she just fired the now former EAW World Champion, Malcolm Jones. However the final shot of the night is of the crowd, the crowd who is livid, upset, and just disappointed over what had just transpired, and standing in the middle of that crowd, at one of the exit ramps, with their arms wrapped around one another are Charlie Marr and Jordie Ripley. Charlie trolls the crowd by raising the championship up, and he looks down at Jordie. She bats her eyes at him and the two start kissing as the scene fades to black.)
(Voltage fades back in and cuts to the backstage area. Malcolm Jones is seen sitting in an undisclosed location, with a rather serious look on his face. Normally, the former EAW World Champion oozes charisma and confidence, but not today. Malcolm is serious because now it’s put up or shut up time. Pain for Pride is next weekend and that means Malcolm’s long awaited clash with Charlie Marr is just days away. Malcolm rubs his hand down his chin and just shakes his head.)
Malcolm Jones: I’m not going to pretend to give a shit about the stipulation of this match. I don’t give a fuck if Marr is undefeated in Barbed Wire Massacre matches or not. Defeating a crossdressing Daryl Kinkade and a stupid fucking Ava isn’t the same as defeating the “Big 092MLBOA” when he’s coming to fucking kill you. Charlie likes to talk a big game; a boring fucking repeatitive game, but whatever. But when has he ever truly backed it up? Name one fucking time this season he did something noteworthy on his own. Go on. I’ll wait.
(Malcolm does indeed wait and the silence is honestly deafening. The only thing that can be heard is the sound of his feet hitting the back of the equipment box he is sitting on.)
Malcolm Jones: I don’t got time to wait forever. This motherfucker knows he a dead man walking and regardless of the match type or what’s happened in the past between the two of us, things are different this time around. This shit has been building up for nearly a year, and while it was nice travelin’ the world with my girl, the shit that went down at Bloodsport took months off my career I can’t ever get back. Furthermore, the fucking bozo continues to provoke me every time he opens his mouth. Don’t think I’m going to let that shit slide from last week; the simp comments, the back-handed bullshit racist comments. The fact this bitch went to Harlem and went on record trying to compare his story to mine. There is no comparison because I’m am Malcolm Hakeem Jones, and my story is my own. My struggle is my own. I gotta walk the fuckin’ streets looking over my shoulder every goddamn day because I don’t know when some KKK looking shithead is gunna come waving a gun at me and shoot to kill simply because I’m wearing a goddamn sweatshirt with a hood. Don’t try and stand in my hood and talk down to me like you know something about how the fuck I grew up. Where I came from made me who the fuck I am, and that is why I am going to continue working and growing, and winning, because it pisses you cacs off that someone who doesn’t look like you is just that much better than you. You can talk your shit about me being part-time and if that were the case, then how the fuck does it feel knowing a part-time wrestler is a bigger draw than you? Spare the bullshit about you working your ass off because you always got a low self-esteem bitch by your side willing to do your dirty work. Beating your ass at Pain for Pride in your own so-called match is finally going to be the miserable ending you rightfully deserve. As soon as the bell rings, your death warrant is signed. I’m not fucking around with you, dickhead.
(All of a sudden, a big boot slams into the side of Malcolm’s face, knocking him off the equipment box and to the ground! Charlie Marr drops to his knees and wraps a strand of barbed wire around Malcolm’s neck and begins to choke him! Malcolm flails about and finally grabs Charlie by the beard and catches him with an elbow to the face! The choke is broken, but the barbs are embedding into Malcolm’s neck and have drawn blood. He quickly gets to his feet and looks to spear the fuck out of Charlie, but Charlie moves! Malcolm is able to catch himself right before he crashes into the wall, but he whirls around, Charlie is right there! Charlie goes for the ‘Charing Cross’ but Malcolm ducks the discus lariat and catches Charlie with a massive uppercut! Charlie staggers back and Malcolm catches him with a boot to the gut! He slams Charlie in the face with a knee and quickly unwraps the barbed wire from around his neck! He balls it up and punches Charlie in the forehead with it!)
(Malcolm wrestles Charlie to the ground and begins opening that wound up even further. Charlie is bleeding, but in typical Charlie fashion, he still fights back! He muscles Malcolm away from him and catches the former champ with a low blow. That subdues Malcolm Jones and allows Charlie to pull a pair of brass knuckles out of his pants and slip them on his hand. He catches Malcolm in the jaw with a huge right hand and Malcolm crumbles to the ground. Charlie takes the barbed wire, places it across Malcolm’s face, and drops a knee down across it! Charlie begins to hammer his fist into the barbed wire, and finally security comes out of nowhere to break up the fight, with Charlie having gotten the better of Malcolm.)
Charlie Marr: Run your mouth. Talk your shit. But never ever fucking forget who’s owned you this entire time. You are my bitch, my fucking underling, and someone who will never be able to defeat me at Pain for Pride. I have been patiently waiting for my moment and I’m getting it this year by hook or by crook. You have never beaten me and I never lost a Barbed Wire Massacre match. I’m better than you, Malcolm, and I always will be.
(Charlie spits on Malcolm as security drags him away. Another set of officials are checking on Malcolm, who is pouring blood, and is obviously annoyed. He is not happen Charlie got the better of him tonight, but Malcolm also knows that winning one battle doesn’t automatically mean you get to win the war.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(The camera fades back into the arena as the wrestling ring is completely decorated into an entirely new, interesting scene which is seen. This is not the usual contract signing as you’d expect. Something has been spread apart the canvas so instead, it looks more like a nicely trimmed lawn of grass. The turnbuckles have Hawaiian Flower Necklaces on them as that’s not even in the worst part of it all. In the middle of the ring instead of a regular contract table, there’s a picnic table with the contract on it. And of course, on the left of that is a small kiddie pool full of mud which at this point, should be pretty explanatory)
(All of a sudden, ‘War’ by Grandson plays up as the crowd begins to all synchronize into boos as Jake Smith makes his way out. He’s wearing Hawaiian clothing as he has the PURE Championship around his shoulder. He has a drink in his hand as he takes a drink and begins to laugh as he makes his way down to the ring. He enters the ring and basks in the scene before placing his drink on the table and running over to grab a mic as he gives a circle around as ‘War’ fades out and he begins to speak)
Jake Smith: :blessed: :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:!!!!
Jake Smith: WELCOME! WELCOME, ALL! TO THE OFFICIAL CONTRACT SIGNING OF THE GRANDEST MATCH ON THE PAIN FOR PRIDE CARD THAT YOU WILL SEE… JAKE SMITH’S MUD WRASSLIN’ EXTRAVAGANZA MATCH!
(The crowd begins to boo as Jake begins to take multiple bows)
Jake Smith: Thank you… thank you. Clearly, anything you can think about what you see here or the match itself, I organized. You can see how passionate I am about this match, the fiery flame I have and hold in my hand because believe me I wouldn’t want this any less, and now, it’s finally coming to fruition. This is a very grand moment as I said, possibly one of the grandest moments of my whole career, and of course, that does say a lot as I’ve done a lot :mjlit: But believe me when I say there is one thing that I cannot deny when it comes down to it… THAT THIS WILL BE THE GREATEST WRESTLING MATCH OF ALL TIME!!!
(The crowd continues to boo, even more, obviously giving Jake a lot of **backlash** for his words)
Jake Smith: I know for the most part that despite that and everything in between, that our participants in such a glorious match type, the beautiful Dr. Bethany Blue, and the absolutely wonderful Alexis Chambers, will bring it come Pain For Pride. But you know, I’m not surprised they’re both madly in love with me, I guess it’s just the cheekbones, but one thing I do know is that they will do anything to fight for my affection! Believe me, now that is joyous, but now, let’s get onto the whole meat and potatoes of why you’re here in the first place. DOC, ALEXIS, COME ON OUT!!!
(The crowd goes silent)
Jake Smith: I’m sorry… please?
(‘Bad Medicine’ by Bon Jovi plays up as Dr. Bethany Blue begins to make her way out to the stage. She has a stern look on her face as clearly it’s of seriousness as Jake leans in the corner and watches her make her way down to the ring. She rolls into the ring and as soon as she does ‘Bad Medicine’ cuts to ‘Walking The Wire’ by Imagine Dragons. Alexis Chambers makes her way down the stage. She looks around at the scene in the ring which Jake has put together as she continues to look with pure disgust, before looking at the face of Dr. Bethany Blue and beginning to crack up. She rolls into the ring and stands right across from the Doc with a smirk on her face, trying to ignore the scene in the ring as ‘Walking The Wire’ fades out)
Jake Smith: Ladies! Before you get a little, too into this I’ve got you all something! Consider this a nice, good luck gift from yours truly and I’m sure you’ll cherish it as much as I do! It took a long time to find this for both of you! Now where the fuck did I put it…
(Jake looks around for a moment before pulling out two boxes with a smile on his face. He places the boxes on the picnic table before beginning to wrap it. Both of the competitors look in confusion as Jake pulls out what’s inside for both of them)
Jake Smith: STRING BIKINIS! :blessed: :blessed:
Dr. Bethany Blue & Alexis Chambers: :wtf:
Jake Smith: You guys like it?! Yay! You can both wear it during your match I’m sure you guys like it-
(All of a sudden the Doc snatches the mic away from Jake. Jake looks in confusion as she looks straight into the eyes of Alexis Chambers with anger)
Dr. Bethany Blue: You think you can do this?! Do you think you can just take my honey bunny away from me like that? You want to pry everything I have from me and that is something I can’t accept! If you think you can do this without a consequence, you’ve got a whole lot coming to you coming into Pain For Pride.
Jake Smith: YEAH!
(Alexis walks around Bethany and takes a mic before walking back to her spot. She lingers on her words for a moment before beginning to speak keeping that calm complexion on her face as she does so)
Alexis Chambers: You really think he loves you? You really think he cares for you anymore than he does for me? You seen it haven’t you? You’ve seen the look he has in his eyes whenever he speaks to me, admit it, he’s head over heels for me. You? I beg to differ, he just puts on this face of unbias to keep you happy.
Jake Smith: WOO!
Dr. Bethany Blue: That’s a bunch of fudging bull sugar. Why don’t you just listen to Terrence? Why don’t you just accept yourself as who you are, an absolute disgrace to everything your family stands for if they do at all! Consider Fighting Spirit the warning I gave you when you were entering the arena, now consider Pain For Pride the lesson in our match.
Jake Smith: YOU GUYS ARE SO FIERY WITH PASSION! GO OFF! :blessed:
Alexis Chambers: Oh you really consider that little attack some sort of advantage on your side? Don’t want to be the bearer of bad news at the moment but if you honestly think in any way that that’s going to stop me then maybe you’re just as stupid as you look. But no matter, I’ll make sure that at the end of the match, Jake says he loves m-
Rich Russillo: BETHANY SLAPPING ALEXIS RIGHT IN THE FACE!
Jake Smith: :krabs: NO! PLEASE I WORKED TOO HARD ON THIS SET I BEG YOU!
James Peters: NOW BOTH OF THEM ARE GOING RIGHT AT IT AS THE DOC TACKLES ALEXIS RIGHT TO THE GROUND! THIS CONTRACT SIGNING AS GONE TO HELL AS BOTH OF THEM ARE PUNCHING AND BEATING THE EVERLIVING SHIT OUT OF ONE ANOTHER! BETHANY MANAGING TO PUSH ALEXIS OFF HER, BUT ALEXIS COMING BACK WITH A STIFF KICK RIGHT TO THE HEAD OF BETHANY SENDING HER DOWN! BETHANY TRYING TO GET UP TO HER FEET BUT ALEXIS BOOSTS HERSELF RIGHT FORWARD!
Rich Russillo: FOH! SHINING WIZARD CONNECTS RIGHT ONTO BETHANY! BUT ALEXIS ISN’T DONE AS SHE DRAGS HER TO THE MUD POOL RIGHT NEXT TO THE TABLE! ALEXIS SHOVING BETHANY’S HEAD RIGHT INTO THE KIDDIE POOL! BETHANY IS SQUIRMING AROUND AS ALEXIS PUSHES HER DOWN FURTHER AND LET’S GO! BETHANY IS OUT COLD! AND ALEXIS STANDS TALL INT HSI CONTRACT SIGNING!
(Alexis pulls herself up to the feet and looks at the down body of Dr. Bethany Blue. She looks with a chuckle before walking over to Jake Smith in the corner who looks on innocently as she grabs him and pulls him in for a long kiss before walking away as she signs the contract on the table and rolling out of the ring with a big smile on her face. Dr. Bethany Blue is still seen on the floor as she clearly looks angered at the actions of Alexis. She looks over to Jake and tries to hold out her hand as clearly she wants him to help her up)
Jake Smith (Off-Mic): I’m sorry Bethany I legit just got these new pants, I don’t want them dirtied!
(Jake leaves the ring as well as secretly he grows a big smirk on his face. Bethany looks on at Jake’s exit absolutely infuriated as that’s the last shot seen as Voltage fades out to commercial break)
(Voltage returns and cuts to Rich Russillo.)
Rich Russillo: Welcome back to Voltage. Up next on the rewind list is one my favorite matches all year. Ms. Extreme found herself in the middle of a war with Charlie Marr and the two squared off against one another in Barbed Wire Massacre III at Wicked Games for the EAW World Championship. Ms. Extreme would be looking to capture her first ever world title and put an end to the Beating Hearts of Voltage versus Charlie Marr feud herself, while Charlie looked to continue his title reign and secure a dominant victory.
[SCREEN BAR: Wicked Games – November 16th, 2019]
(When Wicked Games returns, the lights in the arena are dimmed. The spotlight is focused on the ring. As always, the regular ring ropes have been removed and replaced with barbed wire. There is barbed wire wrapped around the turnbuckles. In opposite corners of the ring, two plywood boards are propped up, each with hundreds of nails protruding from them. The other two opposite corners house panes of glass. The match is meant to change the competitors who compete in it, and for Charlie Marr and Ms. Extreme, the stakes have never been higher. Pride is on the line, along with the EAW World Championship.)
(Bella, who is standing on the floor beside the ring, raises the microphone.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING IS A BARBED WIRE MASSACRE MATCH FOR THE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
(‘The Joker’ by New Years Day hits and the crowd absolutely explodes for Ms. Extreme, who makes her way out to the stage not too long after. She has a smile on her face seeing the positive reaction, but soon after the smile turns into a more focused look, as this is no doubt one of the biggest matches in her career. Finally she gets to face Charlie Marr, the man she’s had to deal with for months, and she’s doing so in a Barbed Wire Massacre. Camille takes one deep breath, before finally walking down to the ring as Bella Braxton begins her introduction.)
Bella Braxton: Making her way to the ring… From Calabasas, California…. Weighing in at 135 pounds…. MMSSSS….. EEEEEEXXXXXTTTRRREEEEEMMMMEEEE!!!!!
James Peters: One of these two competitors are probably going to die tonight.
Rich Russillo: Yep.
James Peters: I don’t know if there’s anyone on the Voltage roster, or even EAW as a whole, that hate each other as much as Ms. Extreme and Charlie Marr. From the day Ms. Extreme, Andrea Valentine, Raven, and Consuela were drafted, Veena Adams and Charlie Marr did everything in their power to stop them from succeeding. Fast forward a few months, now Ms. Extreme is facing Charlie Marr for the EAW Championship in a Barbed Wire Massacre!
Rich Russillo: Yep. Let’s not forget these two have traded wins the past few Voltage’s in similar fashion rolling each other up. Now, I’m not saying it’s going to happen, but imagine how shocking it’d be if one of these two were to lose tonight in the same way?
James Peters: Calling that a shocker would be a severe understatement. I will say though, no matter the result, this is going to be more than a war. Even massacre may not be enough to describe this match.
Rich Russillo: You’re right. To be honest I’ll admit, I’m extremely worried about how this match will go. There’s no way either competitor will come out the same.
(‘It Ain’t Safe’ by Skepta hits and all the positivity in the arena dies. The arena completely shifts into boos, which only grow louder as Charlie Marr and Jordie Ripley walk out towards the stage. Jordie Ripley is all smiles, but surprising enough Charlie Marr has a focused look on his face as well. Charlie stares a hole through Ms. Extreme, who’s on the opposite side of the ring, before slowly making his way down the ramp alongside Jordie as Bella Braxton introduces the Champion.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent… From Tower Hamlets, London, United Kingdom…. Weighing in at 240 pounds…. HE IS THE EAW CHAMPION, CHHAAAAARRRLLLIIIIEEEE MMAAARRRR!!!!!
James Peters: Charlie has had quite the Championship reign, and tonight he’s looking to continue that reign against likely his biggest enemy thus far. To think how surprising it was to many when Charlie Marr first beat Malcolm Jones to win the Championship. Now he’s defending it in a match where I’m sure the entire world is torn on who’s actually going to win.
Rich Russillo: You’re right, although while the world may be torn on who’s going to win, the reaction is very telling on who they want to win. As far as I’m concerned, there’s probably not one fan of this company that likes Charlie Marr, but it’s pretty obvious he doesn’t care. He’s the Champion, they’re not. Tonight, he hopes to beat Ms. Extreme so things stay that way.
James Peters: You’re right, but can he? After everything these two have been through, don’t you think Ms. Extreme is more than prepared for this match?
Rich Russillo: Don’t you think Charlie is? This man has been EAW Champion for months and it’s for good reason.
James Peters: But he never defended that title against Ms. Extreme. Now’s the time we see who’ll be able to back up their words. Who will leave Wicked Games the EAW Champion?
(Charlie steps into the ring and raises the EAW Championship in the air while Jordie is outside of the ring, and Charlie takes one last, long, look at it before handing it to the referee as ‘It Ain’t Safe’ dies down.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: I’m not going to lie. I literally cringed just now as that bell rang. This match is going to be a massacre, and honestly the fact barbed wire is involved doesn’t mean anything. I really believe if this was just a standard wrestling match, these two would find some way to maim one another. That’s how much animosity exists in that ring right now.
Rich Russillo: :lupe: I’m scared…
(Ms. Extreme and Charlie Marr lock eyes with one another. The tension inside the Chase Center is thick. The fans have quieted down because they know what’s at stake in this match and it’s a hell of a lot more than just a championship. A match of this caliber has been brewing since June, more or less, and it’s all about to come to a head.)
James Peters: MS. EXTREME JUST CHARGED TOWARDS CHARLIE MARR! MARR DUCKS HER CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT AND EXTREME IS FORCED TO HIT THE BREAKS BEFORE SHE CRASHES INTO THE BED OF NAILS! SHE WHIRLS AROUND RIGHT AS CHARLIE LOOKS TO HIT HER WITH A SPEAR! SHE SIDESTEPS THE CHAMPION, AND IT’S CHARLIE’S TURN TO STOP IN HIS TRACKS! EXTREME CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK AND CHARLIE CRASHES CHEST FIRST INTO THE NAILS!
(Charlie slumps to the mat, clutching his chest! Droplets of blood have appeared, and we are barely 30 seconds into this match.)
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME TAKES THE BED OF NAILS AND DROPS IT DOWN ONTO CHARLIE’S CHEST! SHE’S HOLDING ONTO THE CORNER OF IT AND SHE’S CONTINUING TO SLAM INTO CHARLIE! SHE SLAMS IT DOWN ONE LAST TIME AND LEAVES IT ON TOP OF THE CHAMP!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme heads to that free corner and very carefully she is navigating the barbed wire that’s replaced the ring ropes for this bout. She makes her way up to the top turnbuckle and gets herself set… A BLIND FURY! MS. EXTREME WITH THE DOUBLE DIVING FOOT STO-
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE JUST KICKED THAT NAIL BED UP AND THE PLYWOOD SIDE OF IT SLAMS INTO MS. EXTREME!
James Peters: Charlie has rolled to his knees and is wiping the blood from his chest. He’s slow to get up, but one thing I can say about our champion is that he’s been in these type of matches before. In fact, Charlie’s definitely known as one of the most brutal competitors in this entire company. I know Ms. Extreme is as well, and I know she knew going into this match that she was going to have to pull out all stops in order to win.
Rich Russillo: Charlie kicks the nail bed over so those damn nails are sticking up in the air and he’s got Ms. Extreme by the hair now. He pulls her to her feet but look! Ms. Extreme just nailed Charlie with a series of forearms that causes him to break his grip! Ms. Extreme with a right hand that connects to the jaw! She grabs Charlie and goes for the Irish whip, but Charlie blocks it and absolutely unloads a right hand that sends her down to the mat! Charlie is now putting the boots to Ms. Extreme, and he’s targeting the ribcage area. That’s exactly what he needs to do in this match, to be honest. He needs to make sure he picks apart Ms. Extreme and leaves her weakened because we all know how tough Camille Jane Ava is. She fights with passion and with heart every single time she steps into the ring, and tonight she’s fighting for purpose. She’s fighting for Voltage, and for every single person that Charlie Marr and Veena Adams have fucked over since linking up together.
James Peters: Charlie pulls Ms. Extreme over to the barbed wire and jerks her up by the hair. He hoists Ms. Extreme up in the air and slams her stomach first across the top barbed wire rope! Ms. Extreme is just hanging there and Charlie’s gone to the corner and has grabbed that glass pane. He lifts it up and slams it down across Ms. Extreme’s back! Glass just went everywhere! Charlie rips her off the ropes by the hair and drops her back first into the glass shards! Charlie goes back to stomping a mudhole in Ms. Extreme, and finally he drops down, going for the first cover of this match!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT AT ONE!
(A slow, sinister smile spreads across the handsome face of Charlie Marr. He looks down at Ms. Extreme and lets out a little laugh.)
Charlie Marr (Off Mic): So it’s going to be that kind of match.
(Ms. Extreme shoves Charlie back and slowly sits up, ignoring the damage already done to her body. She fixes Charlie with a smile of her own, and behind that smile is a story. The story of a woman who was never supposed to come this far, and who most certainly was never supposed to compete for a world championship in the biggest wrestling company in the world.)
Ms. Extreme (Off Mic): Fuck you.
James Peters: CHARLIE UNCORKS A RIGHT HAND AND NAILS MS. EXTREME IN THE MOUTH! SHE FIRES BACK WITH ONE OF HER OWN! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE ON THEIR KNEES TRADING PUNCHES! THIS MATCH IS ABOUT TO BECOME NOTHING MORE THAN A FIST FIGHT… A BRAWL! A FIGHT TO THE DEATH! CHARLIE MARR WANTS TO SHOW THE WORLD HE’S NOT A PAPER CHAMPION AND MS. EXTREME WANTS TO EXPOSE MARR FOR THE FRAUD SHE BELIEVES HIM TO BE! CHARLIE WITH ANOTHER SHOT! NOW MS. EXTREME! CHARLIE! EXTREME! CHARLIE! EXTREME! CHARLIE! CHARLIE! BUT MS. EXTREME WITH A HEADBUTT THAT JUST CRACKED THE NOSE OF THE CHAMP! BLOOD IS POURING FROM CHARLIE’S NOSE NOW AND MS. EXTREME HITS HIM WITH ANOTHER HEADBUTT! CHARLIE IS STUNNED AND MS. EXTREME GETS TO HER FEET AND GRABS HIM BY THE BEARD! SHE DRAGS CHARLIE OVER TO THE BED OF NAILS AND TRIES TO SLAM HIS FACE INTO! CHARLIE MANAGES TO BLOCK BUT THOSE NAILS JUST PIERCED HIS HANDS AND FOREARMS!
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME TRIES TO DRIVE HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE NAILS AGAIN, BUT CHARLIE BLOCKS IT A SECOND TIME! MS. EXTREME SLAMS HER KNEE INTO CHARLIE’S BACK AND GRABS HIM BY THE ARM AND IS GOING FOR RED HANDED! CHARLIE MANAGES TO OVERPOWER MS. EXTREME AND KEEP HER FROM LOCKING IN HER VARIATION OF THE FUJIWARA ARMBAR!
James Peters: Charlie is able to get back to his feet and he catches Ms. Extreme in the face with a knee! He grabs both of her arms and drives his knee into her face again! Ms. Extreme continues to eat those knees and she’s bleeding from her nose as well now! Charlie drives his knee into her face once again and lets go, which drops Ms. Extreme to the mat! She’s clutching her face, and Charlie grabs two handfuls of hair, drags Ms. Extreme over to that shatter glass, and he drives her face into it!
(Charlie pulls Ms. Extreme up by the hair and the camera zooms in, giving everyone a good look at the shards of glass stuck to Ms. Extreme’s face. She’s bleeding a good bit now, and that seems to satisfy the champion.)
Rich Russillo: Charlie pulls Ms. Extreme over to the ropes and he’s raking her face across the barbed wire. She is pouring blood now, and Charlie continues to do even more damage to Ms. Extreme’s face. Her forehead is ripped open now, and Charlie throws her back first onto the mat. He stands up and mocks Ms. Extreme! He kicks her in the head a few times before arrogantly putting his foot on her face.
Charlie Marr (Off Mic): Count it!
(The referee drops down to count.)
James Peters: Another kick out at one for Ms. Extreme!
(Charlie bends down and grabs Ms. Extreme by the face, squeezing her cheeks.)
Charlie Marr (Off Mic): Know your place.
(Charlie backhands Ms. Extreme across the face.)
Charlie Marr (Off Mic): You don’t belong in this ring with me.
(Charlie backhands her again, this time a little harder.)
Charlie Marr (Off Mic): You will never be EAW World Champion.
(Charlie backhands Ms. Extreme a third time, this time hitting her hard enough to bust her open. He lets her go and stands up, holding his arms up in the air.)
James Peters: This crowd is all over Charlie Marr right now. Ms. Extreme’s family and friends are here tonight, and she’s the overwhelming fan favorite. The entire EAW Universe wants to see Charlie Marr dethroned tonight, but right now it doesn’t look good.
Rich Russillo: Charlie Marr leans down to grab Ms. Extreme BUT MS. EXTREME JUST PULLED HIM INTO A SMALL PACKAGE!
James Peters: CHARLIE KICKS OUT AND IS BACK TO HIS FEET! HE NAILS MS. EXTREME IN THE FACE WITH A BIG BOOT BEFORE SHE CAN GET UP!
Rich Russillo: Charlie looks extremely pissed off now and he’s screaming at Jordie. Jordie is looking under the ring and she pulls out a barbed wire wrapped baseball bat! She slides it to Charlie, while Ms. Extreme is trying to get up. Charlie takes the bat and slams it into Ms. Extreme’s stomach, causing her to curl up into a fetal position!
James Peters: Charlie pulls Ms. Extreme up by the hair and wraps the bat around her neck. He’s choking Ms. Extreme with the barbed wire bat now, and she’s doing everything she can to try and wiggle out of this choke. This crowd is solidly behind Ms. Extreme, and she’s struggling to get her feet planted so she can try and push herself up.
Rich Russillo: Charlie lets go of the choke, and slams the bat into Ms. Extreme’s ribcage. He’s far from finished and he pulls Ms. Extreme up, wrapping her in a bearhug, and continue to work over those ribs! Ms. Extreme is powerless right now and Charlie Marr is just squeezing the life out of her right now.
James Peters: The fighting spirit of Ms. Extreme hasn’t died yet. She’s managed to land a few punches to the back of Charlie’s head. That forces Charlie to grip her tighter and he turns around, AND CHARLIE RUSHES FOR THE CORNER!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE JUST SLAMMED MS. EXTREME AND HIMSELF THROUGH THAT SECOND PANE OF GLASS!
(Ms. Extreme is crumpled up in the corner, covered in glass and blood, while Charlie is slow to get himself into a sitting position.)
James Peters: Charlie Marr has been firmly in control of this match and Ms. Extreme might really be hurt. Charlie has made it a point to target her midsection and her ribs, and I wonder if he is going to try to end the match now.
Rich Russillo: I doubt it, James. Charlie wants to put an end to Ms. Extreme’s career and send her packing. He’s going to torture her, and something tells me he’s going to enjoy every single second of it.
(Charlie has pulled Ms. Extreme from the corner and is dragging her back to the center of the ring.)
James Peters: Charlie straddles Ms. Extreme’s left leg and grabs her in a brutal looking abdominal stretch! Charlie has Ms. Extreme’s abdomen exposed and he begins raining punch after punch to her stomach! Ms. Extreme is screaming now, and Charlie lets up on the punches and changes to a clawhold! Ms. Extreme is being punished right now as Charlie has that nervelock locked in on her abs!
Referee (Off Mic): Do you want to quit, Camille?
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme shakes her ‘no’ and that just seems to egg Charlie on! He continues to apply the pressure with that clawhold and he’s not letting go of the stretch either!
(This goes on for several more seconds before Charlie lets up on the clawhold and resumes punching Ms. Extreme in the stomach.)
James Peters: Charlie finally lets go of the stretch and Ms. Extreme is coughing up blood now. She could very well have internal injuries, and Charlie just slammed his foot into her gut! Ms. Extreme rolls towards the ropes, clutching at her midsection, and Charlie begins kicking her in the ribs again! Ms. Extreme grabs onto the barbed wire ropes, and tries to pull herself up, but Charlie grabs her ankle and pulls her off the ropes.
Rich Russillo: The referee might have to seriously consider calling this match. Ms. Extreme has taken an absolute beating at the hands of Charlie Marr and I’m worried about her. The longest reigning PURE Champion has a future that extends far beyond this match and this referee needs to acknowledge that.
James Peters: Charlie has Ms. Extreme by the ankle and he unloads a series of stomps to her stomach. He looks to wrap her up in a figure four but somehow Ms. Extreme has enough energy to boot Charlie in the back of the knee! That knee buckles just a bit, and Ms. Extreme catches him with another kick. Charlie lets go of her ankle and Ms. Extreme kicks Charlie a third time in the back of the knee! He drops down to one knee and Ms. Extreme struggles into a sitting position. Charlie is back up and he whirls around but Ms. Extreme has gotten her knees and she nails him right between the legs! Charlie goes down in what’s probably an act of pure desperation from Ms. Extreme, but what other choice did she have?!
Rich Russillo: Extreme is gripping her midsection as she forces herself up, and look at the expression on her face, James. Ms. Extreme is pissed. She’s pissed about how this match as gone so far, and right now she’s about to try and turn the tides in her favor. Ms. Extreme grabs the barbed wire bat AND SHE SLAMS IT DOWN ON CHARLIE’S NUTS!
James Peters: :damn: I hope Jordie Ripley didn’t want children!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme takes the bat and she hooks it between Charlie’s legs and she stacks him on his shoulders! MS. EXTREME WITH A PIN!
James Peters: CHARLIE KICKS OUT! MS. EXTREME PULLS THE BAT UP AND RAISES IT OVER HER HEAD! SHE LOOKS TO BRING IT DOWN ACROSS CHARLIE’S NUTS ONCE AGAIN BUT HE GETS HIS HANDS UP AND SAVES ALL FUTURE CHARLIE MARR SPAWNS! MS. EXTREME LETS OUT A SCREAM AND RIPS THE BAT FROM CHARLIE’S HANDS AND SHE WILDLY BRINGS IT DOWN!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND THE BAT SLAMS INTO THE MAT! MS. EXTREME LETS IT GO AND SLAMS HER FOOT INTO CHARLIE’S GROIN! SHE CONTINUES TO STOMP AWAY AT HIS BALLS AND FINALLY GRABS HIM, PULLING HIM TOWARDS THE ROPES! MS. EXTREME TOSSES CHARLIE INTO THE ROPES AND GRABS HIS HEAD! SHE BEGINS RAKING HIS FACE ACROSS THE BARBED WIRE! AN EYE FOR AN EYE! CHARLIE IS POURING BLOOD NOW AND MS. EXTREME GRABS HIM, DRAGGING CHARLIE TOWARDS THE SECOND BED OF NAILS THAT IS PROPPED IN THE CORNER! SHE SLAMS CHARLIE’S FACE INTO THE NAILS AND PLACES HER FOOT ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! MS. EXTREME BEGINS STOMPING ON CHARLIE’S HEAD! OVER AND OVER AGAIN CHARLIE’S FACE IS DRIVEN INTO THOSE NAILS! SHE’S ABSOLUTELY GOTTEN HER SECOND WIND AND CHARLIE MARR IS BEING TAKEN TO TASK!
James Peters: MS. EXTREME PULLS CHARLIE FROM THE NAILS AND SHE LOOKS AROUND! SHE SCOOPS A HANDFUL OF BLOODY GLASS AND SLAMS IT INTO CHARLIE’S FACE! MS. EXTREME RUBS THE GLASS INTO ALL OF CHARLIE’S OPEN WOUNDS AND RIGHT NOW SHE IS PAINTING THE CANVAS RED!
(The camera cuts to Jordie, who is standing outside the ring looking absolutely shell-shocked.)
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME MOUNTS CHARLIE AND SHE BEGINS BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF HIM! ALL THE AGGRAVATION, PAIN AND HUMILIATION, OPPRESSION, AND ANGST THAT HAS BEEN BUILDING SINCE THE FIRST VOLTAGE OF SEASON 13 IS BEING UNLEASHED ON THE EAW CHAMPION RIGHT NOW! MS. EXTREME’S PUNCHES HAVE HER FULL WEIGHT BEHIND THEM AND CHARLIE’S BLOOD IS FLYING EVERYWHERE! MS. EXTREME WRAPS HER HANDS AROUND CHARLIE’S THROAT AND BEGINS CHOKING HIM! CHARLIE IS KICKING AND THRASHING UNDERNEATH OF HER BUT ALL THAT DOES IS CAUSE MS. EXTREME TO GRIP HIS THROAT TIGHTER! SHE BEGINS DRIVING HER SKULL INTO CHARLIE’S! THOSE HEADBUTTS HAVE SPLIT MS. EXTREME’S FOREHEAD OPEN WIDER, BUT IS SHE LETTING UP?!
James Peters: FUCK NO! MS. EXTREME’S OWN FACE IS A CRIMSON MASK AND SHE’S SMILING MANIACALLY! SHE FINALLY LETS GO OF CHARLIE’S THROAT AND ROLLS OFF OF HIM! SHE GETS TO HER KNEES AND GRABS CHARLIE, WRAPPING HIM IN A HEADLOCK! SHE POSITIONS HERSELF BEHIND HIM AND WRAPS HER LEGS AROUND HIM, TURNING THIS SUBMISSION INTO A CHOKE! CHARLIE’S FLAILING ABOUT, TRYING TO GET FREE, BUT MS. EXTREME IS MAINTAINING CONTROL OF THE SITUATION! SHE’S DOING EVERYTHING IN HER POWER TO CHOKE OUT THE CHAMPION RIGHT NOW AND THAT’S FINALLY GOT JORDIE ON THE APRON! MS. EXTREME RAISES HER MIDDLE FINGER AT JORDIE AND SLAMS CHARLIE’S FACE INTO THE MAT!!!!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme gets to her feet and walks over to Jordie. Ms. Extreme and Jordie are exchanging words right now and Ms. Extreme grabs Jordie by the hair! She slams Jordie’s face off the top barbed wire rope and Jordie falls to the ground! Jordie is bleeding and Ms. Extreme, satisfied she’s taken Jordie out of the equation for now, turns her attention back to Charlie! The champ is in the corner now, in a seated position, and Ms. Extreme takes off running, landing a huge strike to Charlie’s face! Ms. Extreme pulls him from the corner and gets him back to his feet, and she looks to drive him into the mat with a DDT! Charlie manages to block, and lands a punch to those tender ribs, but Ms. Extreme fights back with a knee to the gut! Charlie lands another punch, which Ms. Extreme answers with a knee, and both of them are trading punches and strikes now! Charlie somehow manages to work his way out of the DDT position and he gets his own knee up, driving it into Ms. Extreme’s stomach! She doubles over and Charlie slips behind her, and wraps her up in position for a German suplex! Ms. Extreme with a series of elbows, but Charlie uses his strength to send her flying into the nail bed with a release German suplex!
(Ms. Extreme slams into the nail bed, with the back of her head and neck taking most of the impact.)
James Peters: Dear gawd…
Rich Russillo: This match is quickly resembling an ID Channel special. You know, I watched an episode of 48 Hours on Dateline about the case of Iana Kasian. She was a Ukrainian born tax prosecutor who was determined to live the American dream, and ended up in a relationship with this psychopath, Blake Liebel. Well, he ended up torturing her and killing her thanks to scalping and exsanguination….
James Peters: :lupe: What’s exsanguination?
Rich Russillo: Draining someone of their blood :lupe: The amount of blood in that ring right now looks like it’s from a crime scene, and we both know these two competitors. They are far from done with one another.
(It takes Charlie several moments to recover but when he does, he finally crawls over to Ms. Extreme and makes the cover.)
James Peters: HOW THE FUCK DID MS. EXTREME JUST KICK OUT AT ONE?!
Rich Russillo: Every time Charlie Marr has tried to pin Ms. Extreme she has kicked out at one!
(A look of pure frustration crosses Charlie’s face and he pulls Ms. Extreme into a sitting position.)
Charlie Marr (Off Mic): You dumb fucking whore.
James Peters: Charlie Marr is pummeling Ms. Extreme in the face now with his fists! He’s not holding anything back and beating her like he would a man! Ms. Extreme’s left eye is swollen shut and Charlie bust her in the mouth once again! Both of her lips are split and he drags her up, whipping her into the ropes! Ms. Extreme slams into the barbed wire, and Charlie limps forward… I wonder if Ms. Extreme did more damage to his knee with her kicks earlier than we originally thought?
Rich Russillo: Either way, Charlie is back in control of his match and he’s got a glazed over look in his eyes! He slams his foot into Ms. Extreme’s stomach which drops her to her knees and he’s taking her by the head and he ties her up in the ropes! Charlie has trapped Ms. Extreme’s neck between the middle and top barbed wire ropes! He grabs her by the legs and THIS MAN JUST FLIPPED MS. EXTREME OVER THE TOP ROPE! SHE IS BEING STRANGLED! MS. EXTREME IS BEING STRANGLED! CHARLIE LETS HER DANGLE THERE FOR A FEW MOMENTS BEFORE REACHING AROUND AND GRABBING HER LEGS! HE PULLS HER LEGS BACK INTO THE RING, CONTORTING MS. EXTREME’S BODY WHILE SHE HANGS THERE BY HER NECK! JESUS FUCK!
James Peters: I… that’s hard to watch…
(Charlie finally flips Ms. Extreme back into the ring and frees her neck from the ropes. She appears to be limp and unconscious.)
Charlie Marr (Off mic to the referee): Check her.
Rich Russillo: The referee takes Ms. Extreme’s arm and lets it drop.
(Charlie has positioned himself in the corner, breathing heavily, but pretty pleased with the fact it appears he’s about to win the match.)
James Peters: Ms. Extreme’s arm drops for a second time.
(The crowd is cheering for Ms. Extreme, doing everything in their power to try and will her back into the match.)
Rich Russillo: The referee has Ms. Extreme’s hand and if her arm drops for a third time, this match is over.
(The referee lets go of her hand and it drops, which prompts Charlie to turn his back and celebrate.)
(But Ms. Extreme’s hand never hits the canvas.)
James Peters: CHARLIE THINKS THE MATCH IS OVER BUT MS. EXTREME’S HAND NEVER HIT THE CANVAS! HER RIGHT EYE SHOOTS OPEN AND THIS MATCH IS STILL ON! THE CROWD IS GOING INSANE AND HOW THE HELL DOES CHARLIE MARR EVEN REMOTELY THINK THEY’RE CHEERING FOR HIM?!
(The EAW World Champion is literally about to take a bow when his beautiful, piercing blue eyes look at the video tron. The expression on his face is priceless as he sees Ms. Extreme struggling to get up behind him. Charlie cautiously turns around as Ms. Extreme gets back to her feet, and both champ and challenger, both bloodied and beaten, look at one another.)
Rich Russillo: I can’t believe Ms. Extreme is back on her feet after all the punishment she’s endured in this match. The fact that this woman is standing just proves how fierce of a competitor is and how much winning the EAW Championship means to her. Charlie Marr doesn’t know how to react right now. I don’t think he expected this kind of challenge tonight, but he had to know that this would never be an easy match. It doesn’t matter if Barbed Wire Massacre was a match tailor made for him. Ms. Extreme has been through Hell and back in her life, as well as in her career, and she’s tough. This woman is so tough. A back injury nearly ended her career and forced her to second guess if she was even meant to do this, but since coming to EAW and getting cleared, Ms. Extreme has been one of the most consistent and talked about Elitists in this company. She doesn’t know the meaning of the word ‘quit’.
Charlie Marr (Off Mic): This isn’t going to end well for you. Stay down.
(Ms. Extreme simply shakes her head.)
Ms. Extreme (Off Mic): If you want to beat me, you’re going to have to kill me.
James Peters: Ms. Extreme and Charlie Marr are circling one another. Charlie offers a test of strength, Extreme slaps his hand away. They lock up and it’s a fight for positioning! Charlie easily overpowers Ms. Extreme and forces her into the corner, but Ms. Extreme shoves him back, ducks under his legs, and grabs him from behind! She wrestles Charlie to the blood soaked mat, and goes for the arm, but Charlie is able to evade the armbar attempt and he quickly goes for Ms. Extreme’s legs. She pulls herself free and grabs him a front facelock, but Charlie unwraps her arms and bends them behind her back. Charlie looks for a back slide into a pin, but Ms. Extreme kicks her legs up, flips over and lands on her feet, which frees her arms from Charlie! Charlie looks to sweep her feet out from underneath of her, but Ms. Extreme catches him with a kick to the face and follows it up with a drop kick that sends Charlie back onto the mat!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme goes to cover Charlie, but he is already kicking out before the referee can even drop down! She quickly grabs a handful of beard and pulls Charlie back to his feet! She goes to whip him into the ropes, but Charlie blocks! He looks for a clothesline, but Ms. Extreme ducks and attempts to pull him down from behind! She goes for the roll-up, but Charlie rolls through and gets up, looking for a dropkick of his own! Ms. Extreme side-steps, and quickly goes for the arm! Charlie grips her wrist with his free hand, and muscles her down to the mat! He wraps Ms. Extreme’s arm behind her back, and gets his leg around her waist. He takes his forearm and cinches it tightly across her throat, forcing a chokehold on Ms. Extreme!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme is able to grab at Charlie’s fingers with her free hand and she latches onto his pinky! She bends it back and holy fuck! She just snapped his pinky! Charlie lets go of her and he’s swearing, holding onto his hand and trying to shake off the pain. Ms. Extreme has gotten back to her feet and she’s grabbing the barbed wire bat! Ms. Extreme takes the bat and she slams it into the back of Charlie Marr’s head! Charlie falls to the mat and Ms. Extreme is quick to pick him up! BRIDGING FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX!
Rich Russillo: CHARLIE MARR SOMEHOW KICKED OUT!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme looks a little surprised, but she’s back to work! She’s looking for the armbar once again, but Charlie somehow has the wherewithal to roll through the hold, and stagger back up to his feet! Ms. Extreme is up as well, and she leaps in the air… nailing Charlie with a dropkick that sends him back into the barbed wire!
Rich Russillo: MS. EXTREME IS TRAPPING CHARLIE IN THE BARBED WIRE JUST LIKE HE DID TO HER EARLIER! SHE’S GOT HIS ARMS LOCKED AND SHE’S GOING FOR THE BED OF NAILS THAT’S STILL PROPPED IN THE CORNER! SHE DRAGS IT OVER TO CHARLIE AND LAYS IT ACROSS HIM! CHARLIE IS ABLE TO KICK IT OFF, BUT MS. EXTREME IS DETERMINED! SHE PICKS IT BACK UP AND SLAMS IT RIGHT INTO CHARLIE’S HEAD! SHE LEAVES IT LAYING ON HIM AND SHE BACKS UP A BIT…. RUNNING DROPKICK! THE NAIL BED SLAMS INTO MARR! MS. EXTREME IS BACK UP… ANOTHER RUNNING DROPKICK!
James Peters: DROPKICK AFTER DROPKICK TO THAT BED OF NAILS!
Rich Russillo: Those nails are firmly embedded in Charlie’s flesh it seems and Ms. Extreme grabs the board and rips it away from Charlie! Fresh blood pours from his chest and face, and Ms. Extreme frees his arms and drags him across the board. Charlie is positioned perfectly across that bed of nails now and Ms. Extreme carefully makes her way up the turnbuckles again. We saw her take a risk very early into this match and it didn’t pay off, and this is eerily similar to the last Barbed Wire Massacre match. Daryl Kinkade had the match won having gotten Charlie laid out on a bed of nails just like this one. He went for a moonsault and the shock of missing was too much for him to overcome.
James Peters: Ms. Extreme is perched on the top turnbuckle and she steadies herself… BLIND FURY! IT’S THE DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!!!
Rich Russillo: AND SHE MISSES!
(Ms. Extreme lets out an ear piercing shriek as dozens of nails puncture through her wrestling boots and pierce her feet!)
James Peters: Ms. Extreme is rolling around on the mat in agony right now and she’s holding cradling her feet. Not even a pair of wrestling boots can protect you from slamming down into a bed of nails feet first!
Rich Russillo: Charlie Marr is crawling to the corner and he pulls himself to the apron of the ring. He drops down to the outside and Jordie makes her way over to him.
(Jordie drops to her knees and cradles Charlie’s broken and bloodied body in her arms. She’s got several superficial cuts and scrapes on her face thanks to having it bounced off the barbed wire rope earlier.)
(Charlie uses Jordie to help him up and he leans on the apron, taking several moments to get himself together and take a good look at the ring. Ms. Extreme is also trying to get herself back together and she’s pulled herself back into the corner. She’s pulled one of her wrestling boots off and her sock, and sees that the sole of her foot is bleeding and bruised. A look of agony crosses her face.)
James Peters: Charlie has grabbed a chair and has slipped back inside the ring. Ms. Extreme seems him coming and she hooks her arms around the barbed wire and tries to pull herself back up. She can barely stand and Charlie taps the chair on the ground, motioning for Ms. Extreme to come at him. She carefully unwraps her arms from the barbed wire ropes and gingerly steps forward, wincing as she does.
Rich Russillo: I don’t know how Ms. Extreme is going to continue this match with her feet in the condition they’re in. You saw the bottom of her foot, right?
James Peters: It’s grisly.
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme takes another step forward and Charlie Marr swings the chair!
James Peters: SHE CATCHES IT!
Rich Russillo: Charlie attempts to jerk the chair away, but Ms. Extreme is hangs on to it! Charlie tries to free it from her clutches once again, but Ms. Extreme continues to hang on to that chair as if her life depended on it!
James Peters: Her life just might! The two are playing tug of war now with that chair and finally Charlie lets it go! The momentum sends Ms. Extreme sprawling onto her backside, but she’s got the chair! BUT CHARLIE! CHARLIE JUST STOMPED ON HER BARE FOOT! MS. EXTREME LETS THE CHAIR GO AND IMMEDIATELY GRABS FOR HER FOOT! CHARLIE KICKS HER HANDS AWAY AND SNATCHES THE CHAIR UP, IMMEDIATELY BRINGING IT DOWN ON HER FOOT! MS. EXTREME’S SCREAMS JUST ECHOED THROUGHOUT THE CHASE CENTER!
Rich Russillo: The crowd just went silent, unsure of how to react. Charlie tosses the chair down and goes for the barbed wire bat. He’s unwrapping the barbed wire from the bat and he yells at Jordie to get him bolt cutters.
(Jordie immediately begins searching under the ring until he pulls out a pair of bolt cutters that will slice through the barbed wire.)
James Peters: Charlie takes the bolt cutters from Jordie and cuts the barbed wire he unraveled off the bat. He makes his way back over to Ms. Extreme and begins to wrap it around that foot. Ms. Extreme tries to kick him back but Charlie reaches down and pulls her up by the throat. He hoists Ms. Extreme up in the air and chokeslams her down on the nail bed! He yanks her off and goes for the cover!
Rich Russillo: :damn: NO! NO! NO! MS. EXTREME GOT THE SHOULDER UP! HOW IN THE WORLD DID SHE GET THE SHOULDER UP?!
(Actual shock registers across Charlie’s face.)
James Peters: Didn’t Ms. Extreme say she would have to be killed in order for Charlie Marr to retain the EAW World Championship?!
Rich Russillo: :lupe: Charlie grabs Ms. Extreme by the leg and slams her barbed wire wrapped foot into the nail bed! Once again, Ms. Extreme screams and Charlie does it once again! He grabs Ms. Extreme’s little toe and HE JUST SNAPPED IT! MS. EXTREME BROKE CHARLIE’S PINKIE EARLIER AND NOW HE JUST BROKE HER LITTLE TOE!
James Peters: This match has quickly broken down into a scene from a horror movie, and I’m not sure what’s left at this point for either of them besides someone’s death. Charlie has grabbed Ms. Extreme in an ankle lock, and she’s got nowhere to go. There aren’t any rope breaks in this match so even if she somehow makes it to the ropes, Charlie can keep that submission locked in for however long it takes to make her tap out or pass out.
Rich Russillo: You can’t help but admire Ms. Extreme, though. She’s given everything she has to this match and has fought valiantly.
James Peters: She’s still fighting too! Ms. Extreme has pushed herself up on her forearms and she is crawling towards the ropes! That’s not going to do her any good except it might allow her a chance to pull Charlie into that barbed wi- HOLD ON! SHE JUST PULLED HERSELF TOWARDS THE BARBED WIRE BAT! MS. EXTREME HAS THE BAT! CHARLIE LETS GO OF MS. EXTREME AND SHE MANAGES TO TWIST HER BODY AROUND AND BRING THE BAT UP BETWEEN CHARLIE’S LEGS! SHE DID A NUMBER ON HIS NUTS EARLIER, AND NO… NOT A GOOD ONE, AND CHARLIE HAS GONE DOWN! MS. EXTREME HAS SOMEHOW GIVEN HERSELF YET ANOTHER LIFELINE AND THIS IS WHAT COMPETING FOR A WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IS ALL ABOUT! YOU GIVE, AND YOU GIVE, AND YOU GIVE UNTIL THERE’S NOTHING ELSE LEFT TO GIVE!
(An exhausted Ms. Extreme falls back to the mat for a moment, eyes staring up at the lights. She blinks a few times before forcing herself to sit up. She brings her battered foot up and begins to unwrap the barbed wire from around it.)
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme has that barbed wire now and she’s wrapping it around Charlie’s neck! She’s using every last bit of her strength to choke Charlie with that barbed wire, but Charlie reaches back and grabs her by the hair! He drives the back of his skull into her mouth and does it until Ms. Extreme is forced to let go. He claws at the barbed wire and tries to unwrap it from around his neck but now she’s got the chair! Ms. Extreme slams the chair into the back of Charlie’s head and she grabs him by the neck! Ms. Extreme somersaults forward, driving Charlie’s face into the mat and she hooks the legs, looking for a cover!
James Petes: NO! CHARLIE POWERS OUT!
Rich Russillo: Frustration and desperation crosses the bloodied face of Ms. Extreme. She pushes her blood soaked hair out of her eyes and looks around the ring. She crawls over to the bed of nails and throws it down across Charlie’s chest. She grabs the chair and raises it above her head, and she starts beating the smooth plywood side of the nail bed like a pinata! Ms. Extreme is emptying the tank and she’s going for the fucking kill! She drops the chair and stumbles, dropping down to a knee. With little else to do, she throws her body across the plywood and the referee goes to count!
James Peters: NO! NO! NO! HE LIVES! CHARLIE MARR LIVES!
Rich Russillo: BUT BARELY!
(Ms. Extreme rips at her hair and looks around the ring. She’s searching the crowd for a sign of hope, for inspiration, for whatever the hell it is she needs to put Charlie Marr away for good. Every single person inside the Chase Center is on their feet and they are chanting the Red Queen’s name. A wave of emotion suddenly hits Ms. Extreme and the look of a champion crosses her face. She’s slow to get up due to all the abuse she’s sustained in the match.)
James Peters: Ms. Extreme has grabbed that second bed of nails and she stacks it on top of the first one. Charlie is literally being crushed right now and I can see the blood pooling from all those puncture wounds right now.
Rich Russillo: :lupe: Dear Gawd… she is going back to the top turnbuckle…
James Peters: Ms. Extreme has twice tried to hit ‘Blind Fury’ and put this match away and it seems like she’s ready to put all her eggs into this basket. If she hits this, this match could be over, but with the condition her feet are in… I don’t know if this is a wise decision. :lupe:
Rich Russillo: She can barely climb right now. Even if she does manage to hit this, will she even be able to make the cover?
(Ms. Extreme takes her time going up top, and takes a few extra minutes to steady herself as she slowly straightens up. The moment and the situation seem to hit her and she takes a look at the sold out crowd. Friends, family, and everyone else are on their feet, cheering her on, and holding their breath to see if she can actually end the championship reign of Charlie Marr.)
James Peters: MS. EXTREME CLOSES HER EYES AND SHE TAKES A LEAP OF FAITH!!!!
(The crowd gasps.)
Rich Russillo: SUICIDE SOMERSAULT SENTON! THAT’S NOT A DIVING FOOT STOMP! MS. EXTREME JUST LANDED BACK FIRST ON TOP OF THOSE DOUBLE STACKED NAIL BEDS, DRIVING THE NAILS INTO CHARLIE’S STERNUM!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
James Peters: Jesus Christ! Ms. Extreme just went for broke and she connected with a suicidal move! I don’t know if that did her favors or not because she can’t make the cover! Ms. Extreme is not able to move right now!
(Ms. Extreme is clearly stunned and stares blankly at the ceiling.)
(Charlie Marr is unable to move. His eyes are closed and he appears to be completely out of the match.)
Rich Russillo: I don’t know how either of them recovers at this point…
(For a few agonizing seconds, neither of them do. It’s only after complete silence has fallen across the arena and the referee wrestles with what kind of decision to make, does Ms. Extreme finally roll over on her side. She rises up and sees Charlie is done for.)
James Peters: MS. EXTREME IS CRAWLING TOWARDS CHARLIE AND SHE DOESN’T EVEN BOTHER TO REMOVE THE BOARDS! SHE JUST DRAPES HERSELF ACROSS THE TOP ONE AND THE REFEREE DROPS DOWN TO COUNT!
Rich Russillo: JORDIE RIPLEY PULLS THE REFEREE FROM THE RING! SHE GRABS THE OFFICIAL BY THE SHIRT AND BEGINS ARGUING WITH HIM! MS. EXTREME HAD THIS FUCKING MATCH WON! SHE SHOULD BE THE FUCKING CHAMPION RIGHT NOW!
(The crowd has unleashed a torrent of cheers and several fans in the front row have even hurled their trash towards Jordie.)
James Peters: Ms. Extreme has rolled off the boards and she sees the referee tied up with Jordie! Dammit, this isn’t right!
Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme gets out of the ring and she limps over towards Jordie and the referee! Jordie sees her coming and shoves the referee towards Ms. Extreme! Ms. Extreme manages to avoid getting knocked down by the referee and she puts her head down AND CHARGES TOWARDS JORDIE! SPEAR! SPEAR! MS. EXTREME JUST SPEARED JORDIE INTO THE RING STEPS! THAT MIGHT HAVE TAKEN THE LAST BIT OF ENERGY MS. EXTREME HAD, BECAUSE SHE’S NOT MOVING EITHER!
(Charlie is down in the ring. Ms. Extreme is down on the outside. The referee has carefully crawled back into the ring and he is checking on the champion.)
James Peters: The referee is going to have to call this match if neither competitor moves in the next few minutes. Both of them have given this match everything they have and I’m not sure we are going to get a clear winner between these two.
Rich Russillo: The crowd is still on their feet and of course they are doing whatever they can to get their hometown girl back into the match. Ms. Extreme has done everything in this match but she may have used whatever was left in her tank to take Jordie out of the equation.
(The crowd’s cheering slowly turns to jeers as the camera catches Charlie trying to sit up. The EAW World Champ seems a little dazed about the fact he’s been buried under two beds of nails, and he finally attempts to roll out from underneath of them. That’s not the best decision as the champ convulses in pain due to dozens upon dozens of nails ripping at his flesh. Charlie takes a moment to catch his breath before he finally places his palms against the nails and starts to lift up on the boards.)
James Peters: :lupe: Jesus Christ. The champ is screaming as he forces those boards up. I can’t imagine the pain and agony these two are going through right now. Charlie’s hands have already been destroyed thanks to a broken pinky, the nails prior to this, and barbed wire, and now he is being forced to destroy them further by lifting up on the boards.
Rich Russillo: :lupe: I can’t watch this. It’s sick. Two people shouldn’t be able to endure this much torment.
(With a final burst of strength, Charlie forces the boards off of him and is free. The EAW champ is unable to move and he clutches his hands to his chest. After a few seconds, and with the crowd against him every step of the way, Charlie sits up.)
James Peters: Charlie is looking around, trying to find his opponent.
(That’s when Ms. Extreme’s hands hit the apron and she hoists herself up. The second her eyes clash with Charlie’s, a look of horror crosses her face. Charlie’s face is void of emotion and Ms. Extreme somehow finds the energy to pull herself into the ring.)
Rich Russillo: Charlie gets to his feet and he greets Ms. Extreme with a kick to the back of the head! He kicks her again and Ms. Extreme has nothing left to give! She lays there defenseless as Charlie stomps away at her head! Charlie leaves Ms. Extreme on the mat and grabs one of the nail beds. He dumps it over so the nails are pointing up and he makes his way back over to Ms. Extreme. He grabs her by the hair and drags over to those nails.
James Peters: Ms. Extreme gets her hands up to try and deflect whatever Charlie is about to do, but he strikes her in the face several times. Ms. Extreme spits a wad of blood onto the mat and Charlie basically lifts her deadweight up and sets her on her feet. Ms. Extreme sways on her feet and even though she’s tired, even though she’s given this match everything she’s got, she still has a look of pure defiance in her eyes.
Ms. Extreme (Off Mic): Kill me, you pussy.
Rich Russillo: CHARING CROSS! THE DISCUS LARIAT CONNECTS AND SENDS MS. EXTREME FALLING BACK ONTO THE BED OF NAILS! HER SHOULDERS CRASH TO THE MAT! HER BODY CONVULSES AND CHARLIE FALLS ON TOP OF HER FOR THE COVER!
James Peters: …………….
Rich Russillo: I literally can not…
James Peters: SHE ROLLED HER FUCKING SHOULDER UP!
Rich Russillo: Charlie Marr is in shock as he rolls off Ms. Extreme! He sits up and looks at his beaten opponent. This woman is insane. The amount of punishment she has taken. This has far exceeded anything she’s done before, and she has gone beyond her limits. I don’t even know why Ms. Extreme kicked out. What’s the fucking point?! She’s done. She’s literally fucking done.
James Peters: As long as there is breath in her body, she will continue to try. Charlie has the barbed wire bat now and he’s making his way back over to Ms. Extreme! He shoves the bat across her mouth and under her nose and wrenches back! He’s got Ms. Extreme locked in a modified crossface! She’s completely defenseless. There is literally nothing she can do! Blood is pouring from her mouth and from her nose, and Charlie pulls back on Ms. Extreme’s neck and head with every bit of strength he has left. Her eyes are closing. The hands she had clenched into fists have gone limp. The referee checks her and that’s it. He’s mercifully calling for the bell.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND STILL EAW WORLD CHAMPION… CHARLIE MARR!!!
(‘It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta hits the PA system, but Charlie Marr is unable to move. He’s released the choke and collapsed on the mat exhausted and dizzy from the loss of blood. An injured Jordie gingerly climbs into the ring and checks on her man, and the referee hasn’t even bothered to ask for the belt. He motions for the medical staff to come down.)
(Paramedics and medical officials come down and gingerly get inside the ring. A team of EAW officials have come out as well and are cutting away the barbed wire so they can get stretchers in the ring and cart out Charlie and Ms. Extreme.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, Charlie Marr has retained the EAW Championship but at what cost? Neither one is going to walk out of here tonight, and I highly doubt either of them are going to be able to make it to Voltage next week.
Rich Russillo: What we just witnessed is a complete massacre, no pun intended. Charlie Marr and Ms. Extreme both look like accident victims.
(The paramedics have carefully placed both competitors on stretchers and are getting Ms. Extreme out of the ring first. She’s soaked in blood, missing her boot, and the left side of her face is swollen. She is followed by Charlie who’s not looking much better. The champion and the challenger are both given a round of applause by the EAW Universe because everyone inside the Chase Center know that both Charlie and Ms. Extreme were willing to die for the championship tonight. Very few people can call themselves world champion, and both of them wanted proved that they are championship material.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, that concludes Wicked Games. We are officially on the Road to Redemption but that road has been paved in blood for both Ms. Extreme and Charlie Marr. We have a new number one contender of the Interwire Championship in Jesse Barlow, and fuck man. I can’t even believe what this match ended up being.
Rich Russillo: Me either. Like honestly, I don’t even know what to say.
(Ms. Extreme and Charlie Marr are stretchered out of the ringside area as the camera cuts to the EAW Champion that’s been left on the announcer’s table. Rich and James are speechless and as soon as the two competitors disappear from the back, the crowd falls silent as well. This match has put Camille Jane Ava and Charlie Marr into professional wrestling immortality. It’s a match that people will never forget, and more importantly, neither participant will ever forget.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(When Voltage returns, a special video package for the EAW World Champion begins to roll.)
(The first footage shown is of Pain For Pride Festival back in 2018. Entrances of the participants in the Openweight Championship back for the night is shown, competitors like TLA, Hurricane Hawk, and Andrei Sokolova are shown. It specifically focuses on Andrea Valentine’s entrance as she makes her way to the ring)
Narrator, Hardships, that’s what every elitist has to go through. Some can’t handle it, and some take it better than others. Andrea Valentine at the Pain For Pride Festival was the only person in the match not a champion at the time. She had the chance to return to the Empire brand with four new championships, but it wasn’t going to be easy. Although being the underdog in an absolutely surprising twist, she managed to win the Openweight Championship and have the first title reign in her career.
(It shows the end of the match where Andrea got up to her feet and TLA quickly took Andrea down with a zig-zag. After a quick back and forth from Hurricane Hawk and TLA, TLA was taken down. Just before Hawk was about to get the pinfall, Andrea had managed to roll him up for the three count to win the match on the Grandest Stage of Them All)
Narrator: Truly all is needed in a match is one turning point. Just because the odds are against you doesn’t make the goal you’re facing the impossible. Everyone has met that hurdle before and Andrea absolutely surpassed it, and did what seemed impossible, and made it possible.
(The footage then continues on to the next free-per-view the Openweight Champion was in, Midsummer Massacre 2018. Terry Chambers is seen making his entrance before the scene cuts to Andrea Valentine following, she’s seen holding up the Openweight Championship with a smile before the footage continues on)
Narrator: You have to ride that momentum that you have with a force. Keep it under your grasp and make sure you never let go of it. Andrea had that opportunity to start her Openweight Championship reign off right, as she faced Terry Chambers defending her title then. Andrea lived up to the hype as she beat Terry at the event and retained her Openweight Championship.
(It showed the last moments of the match with Andrea slipping out of Terry’s attempt at a chokeslam and ducking under a high kick as with quick thinking she was able to leap forward and connect with Atomic Blonde. And with that she retained her Openweight Championship at Midsummer Massacre)
Narrator: Andrea showed that her win at Pain For Pride Festival was more than just a rollup and a fluke than anything else. She showed that the Openweight Championship belonged to her and it was going to stay under her grasp for a long time if she had something to say about it.
(The footage then continues on showing two consecutive matches under Andrea Valentine’s belt, Manifest Destiny 2018 and Territorial Invasion 2018. Andrea Valentine is seen making her entrance at both events as the crowd cheers wildly for her as she holds the Openweight Championship high in the air on the top rope. It then continues on to show Daisy Thrash at Manifest Destiny, and Lars Grier at Territorial Invasion making their entrances)
Narrator: But with that comes failure. Its a stigma that haunts every elitist that comes through. Andrea has had her fair share of those, losses that come and and take away everything from a competitor.
(The footage is seen from both matches as consecutive Daisy connects with No Pasaran and Lars connects with Crooked Sixpence onto Andrea both and her staying down for the pin. Claiming Daisy Thrash victorious, and Lars Grier the new Openweight Champion)
Narrator: The losses to both of them sure pushed Andrea Valentine back. These were not victories she wanted rather was forced to succumb too. Yet it wasn’t enough for Andrea, it never is. Failure was not something she wanted to see the outlook of it, she was in it to win.
(The footage then pushes forward to Bloodletter 2018. Andrea Valentine is seen as she faces off against Madison Kaline for the EAW Unified Women’s Championship in a Mistress of Death Match where there was absolutely no rules)
Narrator: And this was the chance to do so. This was her biggest shot that she could have and she did not want to lose it. Winning the Unified Women’s Championship would be a extraordinary accomplishment for her still young career, but even then there were people gunning for the same position she was in, and would do absolutely anything to do so.
(It cuts to the end of the match, The Queen’s Court had come out and now were a major decision in the ending of the match. There was a flaming table as both Madison and The Queen’s Court slammed Andrea into the flaming table allowing Madison to get the pin and retain her title)
Narrator: You expect one thing, and gain another. The loss at Bloodletter wasn’t pleasant for Andrea Valentine, losses are never a joyous occasion. Yet it’s something that you shouldn’t fret about? That’s what Andrea has done, no matter the setback and despite everything she didn’t give up, through thick and thin.
(It then goes to Road to Redemption 12 where we see Andrea Valentine in the Specialists Chamber for the EAW Specialists Championship. The participants are shown such as Tyler Wolfe, Constance Blevins, Daisy Thrash, Clara Lovelace, and Serena Bennett all fighting against her)
Narrator: But sometimes only one spark is needed. A sliver of an opportunity to truly connect on your ordeals. No matter how bad the odds may seem, it doesn’t make anything something that you can’t achieve if you put your heart into it.
(At the end of the match is was Andrea Valentine and Serena Bennett as the last two in the matchup. They both put up a extraordinary fight and hit all the bases but at the end of the day Andrea had managed to wrap a chain around Serena and force her to tap to win the Specialista Championship)
Narrator: Even when a hope is lost, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. The Andrea Valentine mindset is something that everyone needs to follow, no matter how much you fall to the ground, don’t settle for nothing. Work for your due, and grab that brass ring that everyone expects of you, and that’s exactly what she did at Road to Redemption.
(It then cuts to two consecutive events’ Specialists Title match, King of Elite 2019, and The Iconic Cup 2019. Both matches were Andrea Valentine vs Serena Bennett both fighting for the Specialists Championship)
Narrator: And even then there will be times where people will bring you down. There will be times where you just simply don’t get what you want, but even then you have to push that away. If you value your success and everything in between, you have to go for what others don’t believe you can do.
(It first shows King of Elite when Andrea Valentine was defending her Specialists Championship against Serena. Andrea tried to counter Serena’s Trap Queen move like they did the last time they met, but Serena managed to turn it around and modify the move leaving a injured Andrea with no where to go and forcing to tap as she lost the Specialists Championship then and there. It then proceeds onto the Iconic Cup as Serena defended her Specialists Title against Andrea Valentine in a Last Chance match whoever losing never being able to compete for the title again. At the end it was Serena locking in Serenity and synching it in as she passed Andrea Valentine out in a pool of both their blood retaining her Specialists Title, and making it so Andrea Valentine would never fight for the Specialists Championship again… so long as Serena Bennett holds it)
Narrator: Hope is truly all you need to hold onto. Cling onto it for as long as you can because at the end of the day if you truly do want to make it big as your dreams aspire to do, you must keep faith. Even if its the only thing you have left.
(It then continues on to showcase the Women’s Grand Rampage match which is a first for the Grand Rampage 2019 free-per-view. Andrea Valentine had come out at #10 and great showing was thrown out of the ring by Felix Hartley who ended up being apart of the final two of the match)
Narrator: Although Andrea wasn’t in a title match she was in this, if she were to win gaining a women’s world title shot, even being a fan favorite to win in this matchup. But at the end despite that, she didn’t manage to win. But her showing was very formidable, coming out at #10 and being in the Top 4 is something that most elitists can’t say they did.
(The footage then continues on to Terminus 2019 where Consuela Rose Ava who is the new Specialists Champion defends against Andrea Valentine for the Specialists Championship, because Serena Bennett isn’t Champion anymore :mjgrin:)
Narrator: Sometimes truly opportunities come, and its something that you just can’t let go of. Andrea made the best of one as she walked into Terminus once again fighting for the Specialists Championship and looking to become a two time Champion.
(The final scenes of the match is Andrea seen hopping right onto the ladder and climbing up the ladder and meeting Consuela. They both lock up in a back and forth before Andrea finally get
(The footage shown is from Bloodsport 2019. “Roll With Me” by Charlie XCX plays up as Andrea Valentine quickly grabs the Specialists Championship and celebrate as the fans are going crazy for her)
Narrator: Many have potential, some of them show potential already in their early phases of their careers. In Andrea Valentine’s case, the spark was there since the very beginning. The Openweight Championship first, now the Specialists. She truly was going to be the golden girl of EAW. Her victory put her on the mat and solidified her as one of the biggest names on Voltage at the time.
(We then move onto Territorial Invasion, in particular on the War Games Match. The footages focuses on the closing moments of the match in which Andrea, Raven and Ms. Extreme, aka Team Voltage stood tall in victory after what had to go down as one of the most brutal War Games match in the history of his business)
Narrator: If you fight hard enough, it’s just a matter of time before someone with your same exact instinct and work ethic is going to join forces with you. That was exactly the case for Andrea Valentine. The Beating Hearts of Voltage got just one of their many, many successes that night.
(We now see footage from the rivalry between Andrea Valentine, Serena Riot and Veena Adams. We see a quick recap,of their rivalry and the constant mind games played by Veena and Serena against Andrea. We then move to the Wicked Games confrontation as Andrea Valentine successfully beat Veena Adams)
Narrator: True role models always stand up against bullies and never, ever backdown from a fight, no matter the odds. Andrea Valentine managed to survive everything Veena and Serena threw at her and she can proudly say she got the last laugh at Wicked Games. Sure, her road to the next Free Per View, Road to Redemption got a bit bumpy but she still made a huge impact there…
(The footage now shows the closing moment of the Chamber match at Road to Redemption. The dramatic conclusion to the World Championship Match is shown as Andrea puts her hand on her face, as the realization of what she had accomplished slowly sinked in.)
Narrator: And just like that the reign of terror of Charlie Marr came to an emphatic halt. One reign ended, another one just started. One that was destined to bring honor to a title disrespected in many ways by the former holder. Andrea Valentine was at the top of the mountain that night. Every loss, every fight, every win, every injury. Everything she had ever done in her career was leading up to that very moment, the moment in which she defied all odds and became the new EAW World Champion.
(The feed shows footage of the King of Elite Razorwire Chain match between Terry Chambers and Andrea Valentine for the EAW World Championship. The footage shown starts from the very beginning of the match, with Terry Chambers making the entrance first and then focuses on the Champion Andrea Valentine making her entrance to ‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX)
Narrator: The road to Pain for Pride was rough and full of dangers. Shock Value has been arguably the most dangerous Free Per a View of the Season. Andrea Valentine did not back down though as she stood toe to toe against the Barbaric Carnivore Terry Chambers in a career defining performance to retain her title.
(The footage then shows the back and forth opening to the match, with Andrea and Terry going at it. It then fast forwards to the final stages of the match in which Terry Chambers sends Andrea Valentine against the corner with a Powerbomb and that moves ends the match in her favor as it was the last corner she had to it in order to win it)
Narrator: Sometimes resiliency is the greatest fear an Elitist can have. The will to survive each and every single thing an opponent can throw at you will help you get places. In Andrea’s case, she was able to survive everything Terry Chambers threw at her. And in end she won the match by outlasting her opponent and overcoming the odds she had stacked against her.
(The footage then shows bits from the match Andrea Valentine had at Shock Value against Charlie Marr. In particular it starts off with a slow motion focus on her and Charlie’s entrance, only to then show the footage of Malcolm Jones showing up to his refereeing job. The footage now shows bits of the brutal match these two went through, in particular the strong hits they took with the weapons they’ve found inside the sinister structure they were forced to compete in)
Narrator: A true Elitist never shows fear of the unknown. Andrea Valentine walked inside an electrified cage against the toughest dog of the yard and she found a way to come out on top. She has shown no remorse, no fear, no second thoughts as she took on Marr and beat him at his very own game. That is what makes an Elitist. That is what makes a Champion.
(The footage now shows the final sequence of the match. Malcolm Jones shoves the steel chair on Charlie’s back and then Andrea Valentine is able to capitalize with the Atomic Blonde. The referee opens up the electrified cage with a pair of gloves and allows Andrea Valentine to leave the structure as the crowd goes crazy in the background)
Narrator: Sometimes, in the midst of the battle, enemies become friends and friends become enemies. True Champions find a way to overcome each and every possible odds. Andrea found an unlikely ally in Malcolm Jones, an ally who was going to play a big role in her story later on. But that very night she knew one thing. Malcolm Jones hated Charlie Marr a lot more than her and that played to her advantage that night.
(The footage then shows bits from the Voltage shows following Shock Value and up until Grand Rampage. It shows the weekly interaction between her and Malcolm Jones and the mind games he played as he was trying to get inside her head for their upcoming title match. We then move on to Grand Rampage and in particular the footage from the very first phase of the match is shown, with the back and forth action between the two. The Canadian Destroyer on the apron spot is shown as Andrea Valentine spike Malcolm’s head on the hardest part of the ring)
Narrator: One would think that our greatest rivals are those who are openly hostile towards us, those who make things personal, those who go all out on us. In Wrestling business though, you have to be ready for everything if you want to make it in the long run. And Andrea Valentine did just that. She survived Malcolm’s mind games and in the end she had the last laugh.
(The footage now shows the closing moments of the match. After the No Contest was issued, a bloodied Andrea Valentine is seen connecting her finishing move, the Atomic Blonde and with that she hit both Charlie Marr and Malcolm Jones with just one hit. The footage then pans on Andrea Valentine walking up the stage with her Championship gold retained)
Narrator: Not every battle can end with a clear winner. Sometimes, moral victories matter more than material ones. At Grand Rampage, Andrea Valentine was the one who stood tall after all was said and done. In the grand scheme of things, that’s all that really matters. Andrea’s reign survived their assault and she kept her momentum intact on her road to Pain for Pride.
(The footage now shows the battle between Andrea Valentine and Mr. DEDEDE at Fighting Spirit. In particular, the footage first focuses on their entrances and then on their promotional video battle they had in the weeks prior to the shows. Footage from Mr. DEDEDE Gawdcast is also shown)
Narrator: What happens when a Champion has to stand toe to toe against a literal Gawd? Sometimes, we are tasked with challenges that seem insurmountable. When the whole world wants to see us crumble… that’s when we shine as true Elitists. At Fighting Spirit, Andrea Valentine did the unthinkable.
(The footage now shows the ending sequence of the match in which Andrea Valentine put Mr. DEDEDE out of his misery after his knee gave out. The sequence then ends with Andrea Valentine celebrating with the Championship over her shoulder)
Narrator: No mercy. Real Champions always do what they have to do in order to make it to the top. Some might call it brutal, others see it as simple agonism. Either way, Andrea Valentine proved that she is resolute enough to fight against every type of opponent, no matter their caliber or history.
(The highlight package fades out.)
(The camera cuts to the ringside area as Hannah Marin, Jesse Barlow and Colby Sol are standing in the middle of the ring. Both Colby and Jesse are holding a microphone in their hands)
Jesse Barlow: I… I don’t even know where to start.
Colby Sol: Let me do the honor then, Jesse. Last week was an absolute TRAVESTY, no matter which way you look at it. First we have the dumbest man alive, Rex McAllister, whose ego is somehow still inflated after his Grand Rampage win, issuing a challenge to the Grand Athletes and effectively making the Unified Tag Team Championship match at Pain for Pride a triple threat match. This is beyond absurd and idiotic, I don’t even know what to say. Rex McAllister thinks he is untouchable, he thinks he can just walk around the backstage of Voltage and make things happen with a snap of his fingers but let me assure you, Rex. You are going to regret this decision. Your chances of retaining those titles at Pain for Pride were already rather slim, now they are next to not existing.
Colby Sol: And don’t even get me started on the way my match against Limmy Monaghan ended. Now, I am not a flat earthed and I’m not particularly a fan of conspiracy theories, but what I’ve seen in front of my very eyes was frankly impossible to believe. I had the match won, I dominated that idiot bell to bell and then all of a sudden the referee gets in the way and disqualifies me. On top of that, the match itself was meant to keep the Grand Athletes off the card of Pain For Pride because they don’t belong there… can you see why I am frustrated? Rex McAllister pretty much made a match I’ve spent the whole week preparing to completely pointless with his narcissism and his ego, and THEN I still got screwed over by a referee.
Jesse Barlow: Right! Rex McAllister’s ego will inevitably be his downfall come Pain for Pride. There is no way around it, that idiot just bit off more than what he can chew and he is going to pay the price big time for his actions. The Grand Athletes do not belong in this match, fuck, they don’t even belong on Pain for Pride to begin with. They suck. It’s a simple as that. They are the bottom tier of the Tag Division. How many times do me and Colby have to beat them to make them understand that they don’t belong here? We did it once already, then Colby wiped the floor with Limmy in the most one sided match I’ve ever had the pleasure to watch.
Colby Sol: Jesse. You said it perfectly. “Egos” and “Untouchable beings”. These two terms define Fire & Ice better than anything else. These two frauds think they are untouchable, they think they can’t be knocked down the golden pedestal they are sitting on but they are wrong. They will fall hard on their asses come Pain For Pride, I can assure you. Fire & Ice deserve our full attention come Pain for Pride, they are the only team who stands a chance of winning and retaining the titles. The Marketing Department messed up big time. This is not a Triple Threat match, it’s a “Who pins the Grand Athletes first?” Match and I will make sure it’s us.
???: Woah, woah, woah. Hold on just a minute there.
(Two figures show up on stage as The Covenant turn their attention to them. It’s the Grand Athletes, Mark Macias and Limmy Monaghan. They walk down the ramp with a microphone in their hands and get inside the squared circle)
Mark Macias: The Covenant counting us out. What’s new? You know what? The whole world thinks we are just there to get pinned, but they are wrong. You know what Pain for Pride and Hollywood have in common? They are both the land of dreams. At Pain for Pride, careers are made and dreams become reality. Don’t get me wrong, me and Limmy are absolutely walking into this match as the underdogs, there’s no doubt about that. At first glance, people would think we are losers but when you actually look deeper into our Ls, you realise most often than not we got screwed. We are talented. We are the next big thing in the Tag Division. Come Pain for Pride we are going to prove our doubters wrong.
Limmy Monaghan: That’s right, Mark. Underestimating us is only going to play to our advantage. We know we are good and we damn sure belong here in EAW, no matter how hard you two have been trying to stomp us out. Your arrogance will be your downfall, just like last week. Isn’t that right, Colby? Who won last week? Was it me or was it you?
(Colby Sol slaps the microphone off Limmy’s hand and he gets closer to him. The two are face to face as Colby raises his mic next to his mouth and resume talking to him, this time with a much lower and colder tone)
Colby Sol: Last week, I got fingertips away from ending your worthless career for good. If it wasn’t for that referee I would have destroyed you in that ring and we both know it, the whole world knows it. This whole “underdogs” facade, it’s just that. A silly facade, nothing more. Your time is up and I’m not wasting anymore of my time with you two.
(Jesse Barlow slams his microphone on the head of Mark Macias and Colby Sol does the same to Limmy Monaghan as a battle ensues. Jesse and Mark are now exchanging lefts and rights in the corner as Limmy and Colby are doing the exact same in the opposite corner.)
(All of a sudden, a hooded figure shows up in the squared circle and slams a steel chair in the back of Colby Sol who collapses on the mat, crying in pain. Limmy Monaghan rushes forward but the figure sidesteps him and dives the chair in his midsection. Limmy collapses to his knees and he gets hit by another shot with the chair, this time on his back.)
(The hoodies comes down after the impact and the camera reveals who the hooded figure is. It’s Raven Roberts)
(Raven then rushes towards Jesse Barlow who was still busy fighting Mark Macias in the corner and hits with another shot. Mark Macias is stunned for a second and glares at the carnage Raven Roberts just caused. He then decides to do the only intelligent thing he could do which is retreating, as he slides underneath the bottom rope and runs up the ramp. Raven Roberts looks on but she gets jumped from behind by Hannah Marin)
(The hit by Marin barely makes a dent as Raven Roberts slowly turns around. Hannah Marin starts screaming and pleading for mercy, but Raven does not listen and hits her with the chair as a sick thud echoes throughout the arena.)
(Jesse Barlow sneaks up behind Raven and hits her with his stiff punch, the Repent. Raven falls down to the mat hard, as the steel chair slips away from her fingers. Jesse seems to stutter for a moment, not sure whether to check on Hannah Marin or keep attacking Raven Roberts.)
(The hesitation cost him big time as it allowed Rex McAllister to sneak up behind him and hit him with the Rex Effect. Rex plants Jesse right in the middle of the ring, spiking his head at a terrifying angle. He then checks on Raven Roberts to make sure she’s alright)
(The camera pans to Mark Macias who is still looking on on the stage. It then focuses on Hannah, Colby and Jesse as all three of them are lying unconscious in the squared circle. The camera then pans over to Rex as he is helping Raven back up, before cutting to a commercial.)
(The camera fades into a pan around of the Performance Center. It first goes to the announcers desk as it shows the usual Voltage broadcasting team but more space has been advocated for the new people who join them Bella, Sierra Bradford and Kensingten Calhoun-Astor)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Lets make this quick you nasties. I simply just have more precious things to do with my time.
Persephone: We both have that same mentality, I like it.
Sierra Bradford: I already hate it here.
(The camera then fades out and towards Bella Braxton standing in the center of the ring with a mic in her hand as she begins to speak)
Bella Braxton: The following is a TAG TEAM MATCH!!! And it is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Revival Remix Outro’ by Selena Gomez plays up to a mixed reaction as Constance Blevins makes her way out to the stage. She looks readied as she keeps a determined look on her face looking dead at the ring. She stands on the stage for a few seconds more before making her way down the ramp and beginning to head towards the ring)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Baltimore, Maryland… weighing in at 120 pounds… THE REVIVAL OF… CONSTANCE BLEVINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Ever since returning to EAW heading into Pain For Pride, Constance has made herself known as a formidable threat not just on her own brand but in EAW. She has her eyes set on the EAW Specialists Championship and she’s shown pretty well that she’s going to pull off all the stops to do so.
James Peters: Imagine beating the Specialists Champion tonight in this tag match just a week before Pain For Pride? I’m sure that would open many doors for Constance that she wouldn’t want to lose from her grasp. Can she get that upper hand coming into Pain For Pride is the question?
Persephone: Oh please what the fuck is anything new about her? There’s no difference from the time before she got injured compared to now, SHE’S STILL JUST AS UNINTERESTING! And frankly I think that’s a bit disappointing and sad…
(Constance stops at the bottom of the ramp before continuing forward as she hops on the apron and looks out at the Perfomance Center for a moment before entering into the ring. She circles around the ring a few times before finally making it to her corner and preparing herself for the match to come as
‘Revival Remix Outro’ fades out. ‘Cry Little Sister by Marilyn Manson then plays up as Kasey Kaos exits out of the backstage area. She bursts out of the smoke that covers the ring as she stands at the center of it all. She drops to a knee spreading her arms out before beginning to crawl down to the ring)
Bella Braxton: And her partner… from London, England… weighing in at 130 pounds… MISS MAYHEM… KASEY KAOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for Kasey she’s been on fire in her own right. In the short time she’s been here she’s been in the Grand Rampage match entering #3 and surviving near the very end. Fighting a very valiant effort against Minerva for the Universal Women’s Championship at Odyssey to a losing effort, its safe to say that skies the limit.
James Peters: Indeed and now she gets a shot to get the biggest win of her career here in EAW thus far and thats win the Specialists Championship. Especially a shot like this and winning on a big stage like Pain For Pride. This is a match building up to it that she does not want to lose.
Persephone: Ew, I’ve seen bad makeup taste but this just tops it off doesnt it? She isn’t scary in any sort of way no matter how I try to look at it, she’s just weird… then again that still doesn’t differentiate her from the rest of the locker room, so what makes her any different in the first place!
(Kasey stops at the apron of the ring for a moment before crawling into the ring and making her way to the center of the ring. She gets up to her knees as she falls back, before finally pulling herself up and sitting in her corner as ‘Cry Little Sister’ fades out. ‘Debate Scrum’ by Masafumu Takada then plays up as Harper Lee makes her way out to the stage. She looks around motivated and with a big smile as the crowd cheers her own. She turns her attention to the ring with her face turning into a more determined look as she begins to make her way down the ramp and to the ring with intention in each step as she does so)
Bella Braxton: And her opponents, first… from Charlotte, North Carolina… weighing in at 118 pounds… THE AMAZING… HARPER LEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for Harper its safe to say that she’s proud to have this opportunity. I’m sure for a bit that being on the Pain For Pride card was out of the picture but now after being granted the shot to participate in the Specialists Scramble, she’s shown even more motivation than she ever has and to be honest always has.
James Peters: Yeah of course. She has a chance to win and of course right wrongs. But that doesn’t take away from her showings at Fighting Spirit, and not just that plenty of past FPVs. Harper is just going to do what she does best and thats wrestle! And I’m sure she’s not going to let anyone down doing that.
Persephone: Amazing what? Cut the crap already you guys are at the point where you just lie and lie to yourself and its getting bland and obvious. There is nothing amazing about Harper, she’s just like the other blonde bitches here and she should be disappointed that she tried such a stunt to make herself seem different. Sorry for telling the truth.
Sierra Bradford: Oh bitch…
(Harper begins to make her way around the ringside area before quickly sliding into the ring. She steps onto the middle rope with a bright smile on her face before jumping off and making her way over. She meets her corner as she prepares for the matchup just as her opponents are as ‘Debate Scrum’ fades out. ‘Land of the Innocent’ by Feathers then plays up to loud cheers as Sarah Price makes her way out to the stage holding her Specialists Championship draped around her shoulder. She points around at the crowd with a bright smile as she salutes the Performance Center crowd before making her way down the ramp and headed towards the ring)
Bella Braxton: And her partner… from London, United Kingdom… weighing in at 121 pounds… SHE IS THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION… THE GUARDIAN ANGEL… SARAH PRICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: As for Sarah ever since winning the Specialists Championship away from Darcy May Morgan at Gateway to Glory she’s sure made herself known that she deserves the title that she’s been given and at the end of the day solidified herself as a mainstay player and someone to look out for.
James Peters: She’s definitely in for a fight at Pain For Pride but this is a chance to put her opponents on notice tonight. That shes not going to be a champion that will let her title be pried away so easily, this is her chance to shine brighter than ever.
Persephone: Well I’m sure its pretty self explanatory when I say she doesn’t curse. The bitch is too nice. Can’t really sweettalk yourself to a Pain For Pride win can you?
Sierra Bradford: God when will you shut up. There’s a reason she’s Specialists Champion isn’t there? She’s worked her butt off and you completely sweep that under the rug like its nothing. I’d like to see you do what Sarah has been able to do in that ring for MONTHS now, exactly, you can’t. She’s irreplaceable.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Look at you darling defending the helpless. Does this give you some sort of pride? If I were you I’d be a real lady and quiet yourself.
Sierra Bradford: In no way does this involve you so its best you shut up first.
(Sarah stops at the ramp for a moment before making her way up the steel steps and onto the apron. She looks out the crowd with a determined face before entering into the ring and quickly jumping up to the top rope. She raises the Specialists Championship in the air with pride as she once again points around at the crowd before jumping down and making her way to her corner as ‘Land of the Innocent’ fades out and as soon as each of the competitors are ready, the Ref signals for the bell)
(DING DING DING)
Rich Russillo: Looks like Harper Lee and Constance Blevins are going to get things started here tonight. We got a massive tag team match underway and we could say it’s also the best way for us to preview the action that we are going to witness in the Specialists Scramble Match at Pain for Pride. Harper Lee and Constance Blevins lock up in the middle of the ring as they both are trying to out power each other but it looks like Blevins is the one who got the upper hand here. She pushes Harper Lee all the way to the corner as the referee steps in to separate the two. Harper puts her forearms up… OOOF! What a cheap shot by Blevins! She just hit Harper Lee with a stiff slap to the face. No respect shown here tonight by the former Unified Tag Team Champion.
Sierra Bradford: That’s just disgusting behavior right there. The match hasn’t even started and Constance Blevins is already taking cheap shots just like she’s been doing since the road to Pain for Pride started.
Kensingten Kalhoun-Astor: Pffffff. Give me a break. I would have done the same thing to Harper Lee if I had the chance. That little girl is so irritating. Of course, the same thing goes for Constance Blevins as well.
James Peters: Harper Lee is fired up now and she charges in, she takes down Blevins with a stiff clothesline… and another clothesline sends Blevins crahsing down to the canvas! Harper Lee surely is no pushover and she’s showing it here tonight! Constance Blevins is stunned, she’s crawling accross the ring trying to recover but Harper Lee has already climbed the top turnbuckle and she’s got her sights set on the target…. MISSILE DROPKICK BY HARPER LEE! RIGHT ON TARGET, CONSTANCE BLEVINS GETS HIT RIGHT IN THE FACE. HARPER LEE GOES FOR A QUICK COVER…
Rich Russillo: Kickout by Constance Blevins! I think I saw a tooth flying there! Constance is checking her mouth as the referee politely asks Harper to back off. Can you imagine if Harper Lee legitimately destroyed one of her teeths just one week from Pain for Pride? That would be some gasoline for their match for sure. Harper Lee closes in to make sure Constance can continue… GUT KICK BY CONSTANCE BLEVINS! SHE WAS PLAYING POSSUM AND HARPER LEE FELL FOR IT!
James Peters: Smart move there by Blevins, she got back control of the match and turned things around with precision. Now Constance Blevins is pressing on the advantage, she launches Harper Lee to the corner with a strong clothesline as Sarah Price looks on from her corner. Harper Lee hits the turnbuckles hard, back first. Constance Blevins tries to follow up with a corner knee strike but Lee is quick on her feet and she dodged the hit right at the very last moment. Constance Blevins stumbles back, her knee is hurting as Harper Lee charges in yet again… REVERSE BULLDOG BY HARPER LEE! SHE JUST NAILED CONSTANCE THERE AND NOW SHE TURNS TO SARAH PRICE, WILL SHE TAG HER IN!
Sierra Bradford: YES!
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Ewwww
Rich Russillo: Sarah Price wastes no time and tackles Constance Blevins down to the mat, she unloads on the former Tag Team Champion with a flurry of punches and hits! Weeks and weeks of trash talking are surely affecting her state of mind right now, her emotions are running wild and she’s not doing a great job at controlling herself! That might cost her big time! Constance Blevins manages to fend her off and throws her to the side, Sarah gets right back up but she gets caught by a nasty kick to the gut. Sarah collapses to her knees and Constance Blevins is super quick, she connects with a vicious DDT right in the middle of the ring! She then picks Sarah Price back up by her hair and drags her all the way to her corner, oh man! That’s not the place Sarah Price wants to be right now!
James Peters: It’s Kasey Kaos time! Both Kasey and Constance are making good use of the five seconds they have to work together as they stomp a whole in Sarah Price with viciousness. Kasey Kaos then throws Sarah Price against the ropes, she rebounds off them and gets caught by a nasty big boot to the face! Ouch! That’s gotta hurt! Kasey goes for a quick pin attempt!
Rich Russillo: And a Kickout! Sarah Price has more fight left in her as Kasey Kaos picks her back up. She goes for a scoop slam but Sarah somehow finds a way to free herself from her grasp, she lands right behind her and takes out one of her legs with a nasty kick! Sarah Price then leaps towards her corner and tags Harper Lee back in!
James Peters: Harper Lee is the legal woman yet again, she charges towards Kasey Kaos and goes for a clothesline but… OOOF! HEADBUTT BY KASEY KAOS! Harper Lee was stopped right in her tracks, she stumbles back on spaghetti legs and she looks stunned. Kasey tries to follow up with a Sling Blade but Harper Lee has her scouted and she gets a hold of the top rope at the very last moment! Kasey Kaos crashes to the canvas butt first, but Harper Lee is still standing and she catches Kasey with a kick to the midsection, Kasey stumbles forward as she get caught! Snap Suplex…No! Kasey stopped the Suplex attempt by putting her leg between Harper’s legs, she wants none of that! Harper Lee is resilient though, she ducks under and repositions herself right behind Kasey Kaos, her arms are hooked around her midsection… GERMAN SUPLEX BY HARPER LEE! Incredible raw power displayed by Harper there, she just threw Kaos all the way accross the ring! The cover…
Rich Russillo: Kickout by Kasey! Harper quickly pulling herself up to her feet as Kasey begins to crawl up and bring herself up to all fours, BUT HARPER SENDS HER BACK AND PUSHES HER AWAY WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE! Harper quickly grabbing her and bringing her up, BUT KASEY QUICKLY GRABBING HARPER AND THROWING HER OUT ONTO THE APRON! Harper trying to regain some traction, BUT KASEY BARGING RIGHT INTO HARPER SENDING HER RIGHT DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
James Peters: Kasey quickly leaving the ring and beginning to continue the attack on Harper on the outside, KASEY IMMEDIATELY THROWING HARPER RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE! KASEY CLOSING IN AS SHE BEGINS TO LAND A BARRAGE OF PUNCHES DOWN, BUT HARPER JUST BARELY MANAGES TO SHOVE AWAY! Kasey quickly trying to swing a punch at Harper, BUT HARPER DUCKS AND GRABS KASEY BY THE WAIST AS SHE SLAMS HER BACKFIRST INTO THE CORNER OF THE APRON!
Persephone: God, what can I say different from what I haven’t already said?
Sierra Bradford: Maybe you can continue keeping your mouth shut and watching the match since that seems to be the only thing you’re good for.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: My goodness! Ms. Bradford you couldn’t be any less vile with your disgusting words?
Sierra Bradford: Sorry snowflake.
Rich Russillo: Anyways, Harper now is in the ring along with Kasey as Harper quickly sends her into a irish whip into the ropes! Kasey ducking under the lariat attempt by Harper as Kasey continues to push herself to the ropes and back to a unsuspecting Harper, KASEY WITH A CROSSBODY- BUR HARPER WITH SUCH STRENGTH AS SHE MANAGES TO KEEP KASEY UP! HARPER CONTINUING TO MUSTER OUT STRENGTH AS SHE SLAMS KASEY RIGHT INTO THE CORNER TURNBUCKLE!
James Peters: WHICH INSTIGATES A TAG FROM SARAH PRICE! Harper bringing Kasey down and keeping her pushed up in the corner as Sarah enters into the ring, AND SENDS A KICK RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF KASEY! Harper going back onto the apron as Sarah throws Kasey down to the center of the ring! Sarah bringing Kasey up to her feet, BUT KASEY WITH A ELBOW RIGHT TO THE STOMACH OF SARAH SENDING HER BACK! Kasey quickly pushing herself forward, BUT SARAH DUCKS OUT OF ANY ATTACK KASEY HAD IN STORE FOR HER! BUT KASEY WITH A BIG DROPKICK PUSHING SARAH BACK!
Rich Russillo: This is giving Kasey enough time as she quickly leaps forward and heads to her corner as Constance Blevins is there just practically begging for the tag at this point. KASEY LEAPS- BUT SARAH LUNGES FORWARD JUST BARELY KEEPING KASEY DOWN ON THE GROUND GRABBING HER BY THE LEGS! BUT KASEY TURNING HERSELF ONTO HER BACK AND SENDING A KICK TO SARAH’S FACE AS SHE PUSHES HERSELF FORWARD!
James Peters: CONSTANCE IS TAGGED IN! Constance leaping right into the ring as Sarah quickly pulls herself up to her feet! CONSTANCE WITH A SLINGBLADE TAKING SARAH DOWN TO THE GROUND! Sarah getting taken down but is quickly getting up as Constance grabs her by the arm and sends her into the ropes, CONSTANCE WITH A RUNNING HIGH KNEE RIGHT TO THE FACE OF SARAH TAKING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Rich Russillo: Constance grabbing the ropes and getting up around the same time as Sarah, SARAH GOING FOR A KICK- BUT CONSTANCE GRABS THE FOOT AND PUSHES IT AWAY AS SHE QUICKLY GRABS HER! CONSTANCE WITH A KNEE STRIKE RIGHT TO THE GUT OF SARAH SENDING HER BACK! CONSTANCE LOOKS READY AS SARAH DOESN’T KNOW WHAT’S HITTING HER, SHINING LIGHT! SHINING WIZARD TO A CORNERED SARAH TAKES HER DOWN! Constance quickly pulling Sarah out of the corner and to the ground, CONSTANCE GOING FOR THE PIN! THIS MIGHT BE IT RIGHT HERE!
James Peters: KICKOUT BY SARAH!
Persephone: Sadly, this match continues.
Sierra Bradford: That’s one thing you need to know about Sarah! No matter the odds that seem to be placed in her way she always manages to push forward, she just showed that right now! I’m sure thats one thing that’s going to be a strong point for her headed into Pain For Pride.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: You’re just admitting defeat right here and now missy just putting it out there.
Sierra Bradford: I’m here for a reason for starters. And if you think I’m not going to try to counteract that you better think twice. As much as I love Sarah with all my heart, I need this title.
Rich Russillo: Strong words already. Sarah is up on a knee as Constance is slamming multiple axe handles right into the back of her head! But Sarah is fighting back as she begins to do anything she can to escape out striking Constance right in the gut! CONSTANCE STEPPING BACK AND ATTEMPING A KICK, BUT SARAH DUCKS UNDER AND QUICKLY TURNS CONSTANCE AROUND! PLOT TWIST-
James Peters: BUT CONSTANCE DUCKS UNDER THE RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE ATTEMPT AS SHE BRUSHES RIGHT PAST SARAH! CONSTANCE HEADING RIGHT TO THE ROPES AND BACK NOW, RUNNING LARIAT- BUT SARAH SLIDES UNDER THAT AND GRABS CONSTANCE BY THE LEGS AND PULLS HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! CONSTANCE TRYING TO PULL HERSELF UP TO HER FEET BUT ITS GIVING SARAH ENOUGH TIME TO SET HER UP!
Rich Russillo: ENCHANTMENT BREAKER! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF CONSTANCE’S HEAD SENDING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! SARAH COLLAPSES DOWN RIGHT FOR THE PIN NOW AS COULD JUST BE IT FOR THIS MATCHUP!
James Peters: CONSTANCE POWERS OUT!
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: You were saying?
Sierra Bradford: Nothing, that equates to absolutely nothing.
Persephone: Stop arguing you bland bitches I’m trying to sleep.
Rich Russillo: Sarah has brought Constance up to her feet and sent her into a irish whip into the corner, it seems she’s going to tag Harper in! Its best they beat her down while she’s weakened and it seems they plan to he going for the finishing blows right now!
James Peters: HARPER IS TAGGED IN AS SHE QUICKLY ENTERS THE RING! SARAH IS HOLDING CONSTANCE UP AND IN PLACE AS HARPER IS WASTING NO TIME QUICKLY RUNNING RIGHT AT HER! CLASS TRIAL-
Rich Russillo: CHERRY BOMB! KASEY KAOS OUT OF NOWHERE NAILING A SHINING WIZARD RIGHT TO THE HEAD OF SARAH PRICE! HARPER INSTANTLY FOCUSES HER ATTENTION OFF CONSTANCE AS SHE TURNS KASEY AROUND! MASENKO! SPINNING PUMPHANDLE SAMOAN DROP CONNECTS ONTO KASEY!
James Peters: WAIT! THE ABOLISHMENT! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE RIGHT TO THE HEAD OF HARPER SENDS HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! HARPER TOOK HER EYES OFF CONSTANCE AND THAT COST HER AS CONSTANCE IS GOING FOR THE PIN NOW! COULD THIS BE IT?!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Revival Remix Outro’ plays up as Constance Blevins pulls herself up to her feet. Kasey Kaos crawls up to her feet as well as the Ref raises both their hands in victory. Both Constance and Kasey look around at their downed opponents with a smirk before continuing to bask in their victory)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here are your winners… THE TEAM OF CONSTANCE BLEVINS AND KASEY KAOS-
Rich Russillo: OH MY IT SEEMS THEY ARENT DONE YET! KASEY HAS JUST LUNGED AT HARPER WHO WAS JUST PULLING HERSELF UP TO HER FEET AND NOW IS JUST REPEATEDLY SLAMMING FIST RIGHT INTO HER FACE!
Sierra Bradford: WE’RE NOT DOING THIS TODAY!
James Peters: SIERRA BRADFORD HAS JUST BURSTED OUT OF HER COMMENTARY TABLE POSITION AS SHE SLID INTO THE RING! SHE’S GOING FOR KASEY TRYING TO PRY HER OFF! KASEY IS UP ON A KNEE AS SIERRA BOOSTS FORWARD RIGHT AT KASEY! ELECTRIC FEEL-
Rich Russillo: DOESNT CONNECT AS BEFORE SIERRA CAN CONNCT CONSTANCE OUT OF NOWHERE TACKLES HER OUT OF THE RING AS THE BRAWL CONTINUES!
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Such savages my my! But if I weren’t to say this wasn’t good entertainment…
(Sarah Price rolled out of the ring for a moment watching the brawl ensue but before joining in noticing Kensingten Calhoun-Astor)
James Peters: SARAH WITH A SOLID RIGHT HAND RIGHT TO THE FACE OF KENSINGTEN KNOCKING HER STRAIGHT TO THE GROUND! SARAH QUICKLY RUNNING FORWARD AS SHE JOINS THE BRAWL THAT HAS ENSUED BETWEEN HARPER, CONSTANCE, SIERRA, AND KASEY! THE FIRE HAS BEEN LIT, IMAGINE WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN AT PAIN FOR PRIDE?!
(The brawl continues as Security now is forced to quickly run forward and break up the 5 competitors as they all yell remarks at each other as they do so trying to break free and escape out. The last shot is of them all being escorted away through different places as Voltage fades out to commercial break)
(Voltage returns and cuts to Persephone, who is already fanning herself.)
Persephone: I mean obviously it goes without saying that I’m picking Rex McAllister versus that fugly slug of a wife he has as my Voltage Rewind match. Not only does Rex beat the shit out of Raven as he should, I also flashed him and my tits look amazing on camera. And really, now that we know that bitch is barren, Rex… baby, call me! I got a working womb and I don’t mind being your baby factor. :mjlit:
[SCREEN BAR: Voltage – 5/10/2020]
( “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin reverberates in the EAW Performance Center that cues for the EAW Unified Tag Team Champions to step onto the stage. Drake King dons his traditional gear with the EAW World Heavyweight Championship strapped around his waist and EAW Tag Team Championship lying on his right shoulder, and The Visual Prophet is outfitted by his colourful, glamorous clothing. )
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.. PLEASE WELCOME…YOUR EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION… DDRRRRRIIZZZZZZYYYYY AAAAANNNDD VIIIIZZZZYYYY!!!
Persephone: Hey look! It’s the two morons that my husband will dethrone at Gateway to Rexlory!
James Peters: They aren’t just two morons; they’re a pair of the most talented elitists on the Dynasty roster and they’re here to seek their upcoming challengers. I’m surprised they’re not coming down here with notebooks as they’re gonna have to jot down a lot of notes if they want to have an edge over “Fire & Ice”.
Rich Russillo: “Drizzy & Vizzy” get the opportunity to preview the two individuals that might take their championships awa-
Persephone: Rex McAllister “will” dethrone them, not “might”. Get your words right!
Rich Russillo: Well, either way, these two have the best seats in the house to what could be a “MOTY” contender.
( “Drizzy & Vizzy” distance themselves in the barricaded section where Drake King sulks with the bell keeper while The Visual Prophet gives a seductive stare to Bella Braxton. ‘Mark My Words’ by Doll Skin blasts through the speakers and prompts Persephone to stand up and boo the presence of “The Bird Of Prey.” Raven Roberts emerges from backstage and optimistically glances towards the squared circle from the entranceway. With a black leather trench coat with wings attached to the back, she valorously marches down the aisle while Persephone continues to fill the television feed with loud boos. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Louisville, Kentucky, weighing in at 139 pounds… “THE BIRD OF PREY’, RRRRRAAAAVVVVEENNNN ROBBBERRRRRTTTTSSSSSS!!!!!
Persephone: I don’t understand why this bitch is getting the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share the same canvas with my T-Rex. She’s clearly unqualified and full of shit because I doubt “Raven Roberts” is her real name. Is this woman even from this country? Is she even from Louisville? We don’t even know her real name. Someone should tell Kensington to call ICE on this bird woman.
Rich Russillo: Well, her name is Raven Skye McAllister.
Persephone: That’s not her real name. I know that because I have her social security card.
James Peters: Why do you have her social security?
Persephone: Because anyone vile in close proximity to Rex needs to be closely monitored and as his appointed guardian angel, that is my responsibility.
James Peters: I have too many questions.
Rich Russillo: You know, “Persephone Russillo” would look great on a social security card.
Persephone: Excuse me?
James Peters: Let’s not delude ourselves, folks. Raven Roberts is an indisputable US citizen and we’ll leave it at that. Love it or loathe it, that decorated woman you see in the squared circle is married to Rex McAllister, and tonight, these two will set aside their devoted relationship as they will establish who’s the better professional wrestler in this blockbuster main event.
( Persephone attempts to catch the attention of McAllister with puppy eyes, but Rex continues to ignore her as he begins to stretch against the top rope. “Alive” by POD echoes throughout the New Jersey venue as the 2020 Grand Rampage Winner approaches the corridor. Clothed by his accustomed ebony black wrestling tights and vest, he strides down the passageway, making plenty of eye contact with Roberts as he appears to be excited about this upcoming bout. )
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT! From Sea Isle, New Jersey, weighing in at 238 pounds… HE IS THE 2020 GRAND RAMPAGE WINNER…. “THE REX MASTER”, REXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX MMMMMMCCCCAAAAALLLLLLLISSSTTTERRRRRRRRRR!!!!
Rich Russillo: These two better not roughen up each other too much as they are scheduled to vie for the EAW Unified Tag Team Championships in a few days, but knowing their unparalleled work ethic and determination, Rex McAllister and Raven Roberts are bound to tear it up here tonight.
James Peters: The “Fire & Ice” conjunction is set to combust as they crossroad days before their championship opportunities. It’s surefire that Rex McAllister and Raven Roberts are going to put on stone-cold warfare against each other and they will force each other to the uppermost limit even though they have a championship opportunity days ahead of them. I’m intrigued by how these two will avoid including their emotions with one another, but this is the 2020 Grand Rampage Winner and former Universal Women’s Champion we’re talking about. Tonight, it should be business as usual and nothing more.
Persephone: Bitch, please. I want Rex McAllister to tear off every limp off the body of Raven. I want him to make her bleed to death! These two are not on the same playing field and if you actually think this isn’t going to be a one-sided affair, then you’re an absolute moron. Rex McAllister is going to fuck up that bitch who should’ve been aborted. As a matter of fact..
( Persephone stands up on her office chair once again, throws her closed fist in the air and begins to chant “REX IS GONNA KILL YOU…. REX IS GONNA KILL YOU” repeatedly. )
Persephone: COME ON! JOIN ME, MORONS! REX IS GONNA KILL YOU!! REX IS GONNA KILL YOU!!
Drake King: CAN YOU SHUSH! I AM GOING TO FREAKIN’ HARM MYSELF IF YOU DON’T ZIP IT!
( Persephone halts her obnoxious incantations and returns to her seat. Drake goes back to staying focused while The Visual Prophet converses with Bella Braxton. Rex McAllister and Raven Roberts split from their corners and meet in the middle of the squared circle as the bell rings. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Rich Russillo: The bell has rung and now, husband against wife is now in full swing in the main event of tonight’s Voltage. These two have gotten extremely close over the last year. They’ve been travelling up and down the road together, training, and working out together; these two have been doing things together for a while now, but tonight, that is all sidelined.
James Peters: Couples are constantly arguing, fighting, and competing against one another to prove their paramountcy, and there’s no better way than doing that through the art of professional wrestling. There’s essentially no strings attached for these two lovebirds and I’m excited for these two to tear each other to pieces.
( McAllister and Roberts both engage in a collar-and-elbow tie-up.
Persephone: You both are hilarious that I almost forgot to laugh. Raven stands no chance against The Rex Ma-
( Roberts immediately ends and pushes him into the canvas. )
Rich Russillo: And you were saying?
Persephone: DQ HER! SHE’S CHEATING!
James Peters: That ain’t no cheating. Roberts possesses an assuring smirk on her face while Rex reclines against the middle rope as he understands how evenly-matched this will be. He gets up to their feet before they circle around the canvas and advance in for a collar-and-elbow tie-up.
Rich Russillo: Rex immediately drops down onto one knee, circles around and hoists her up for a waist takedown. Roberts manages to scissor his chest with her legs, plunging down and flooring ‘The Rex Master’ with a wheelbarrow takedown before placing him in a waist lock of her own. McAllister is quick to escape as he grounds her by the legs and travels around the body to put her in a front face lock.
Persephone: That’s right! Choke that bitch out! Birdwoman is starting to show some fight now, but McAllister crushes her midsection with a low knee, releasing the face lock, and pulling her in by the wrist! She slaps his fist away, freeing herself and charging in for a clothesline! MCALLISTER USES HER ARM, SWINGS OVER AND GRABS THE HEAD!! THE REX EFFECT! THE REX EFFECT!
James Peters: BUT ROBERTS IMMEDIATELY DROPS DOWN AND REELS INTO THE CORNER! Raven evades disaster as McAllister smiles at her. He almost put the finishing touches into this match with that even flow DDT as they both meet in the middle of the ring. Roberts and McAllister elevate their arms, signalling for an old-school test-of-strength.
Rich Russillo: Rex grabs her arm, twists it, and drops her onto her left shoulder. McAllister scrolls around and conducts a gut wrench waist lock onto ‘The Bird Of Prey’. He attempts to deadlift her off, possibly for a gut-wrench suplex, but RAVEN MANAGES TO PULL HIM DOWN WITH A SCHOOL-BOY PIN!
Persephone: REXY ESCAPES! HOW DARE SHE TRY TO ROLL HIM UP! SHE GOES FOR THE HIP TOSS!! YES!! REXY MANAGES TO FLIP FORWARD OUT OF IT AND BLASTS THE BITCH WITH A THICK BACK ELBOW!! HAH! He now grabs her neck and puts down RAVEN WITH A SNAP MARE TAKEDOWN!
James Peters: BUT RAVEN ESCAPES WITH A FRONT FLIP OF HER OWN, FLATTENS REX WITH A SAVAGE REVERSE JUDO TAKEDOWN AND NAILS HIM WITH A PICTURE-PERFECT DROPKICK TO THE FACE! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
Rich Russillo: REX POWERS OUT AT ONE! Roberts now administers a swarm of Muay Thai strikes before she rebounds off the opposite corner! ROBERTS JUMPS UP!! BUT REX GRABS HER IN MID AIR AND MOUNTS HER ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! HE JUMPS UP!! ROBERTS CLOCKS HIM WITH A ROPE-ASSISTED ENZIGURI!!
James Peters: Raven now perched on the top turnbuckle and looks to showcase her bird-like capabilities! RAVEN SOARS OFF!! REX JUMPS UP FOR A DROPKICK, BUT RAVEN HOWEVER, HELD ONTO THE TURNBUCKLES!! RAVEN SAW THAT COMING AS SHE FAKED OUT ‘THE REX MASTER’ AND NOW FLIPS HIM OVER THE CANADIAN DESTROYER!
Persephone: REXY SPROUTS UP AND FLIPS HER OVER!! HE HOISTS HER UP INTO THE AIR AND DROPS HER ROTTEN VAGINA ONTO HIS KNEE WITH AN INVERTED ATOMIC DROP! MCALLISTER HAS THIS IN THE BAG NOW AS HE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN RUNS PAST, SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE AND LEAPS ONTO ‘THE REX MASTER’ WITH A FRONT HEADSCISSORS!! SHE DRILLS HIM WITH THE SPIKE RANA!! NO!! REX FLIPS FORWARD OUT OF IT, KICKS THE MIDSECTION AND LIFTS HER UP FOR THE OLYMPIC SLAM!
James Peters: RAVEN COUNTERS IT INTO AN ARM DRAG! McAllister falters through the ropes and out of the ring as RAVEN NOW RUNS THE ROPES!! AND SOARS THROUGH FOR A TOPE SUICIDA ONTO THE ‘REX MASTER’!!! What a sensational leap of faith as Raven now brings McAllister back into the squared circle.
Persephone: Raven getting lucky as she now climbs onto the top rope!! AND REX CATCHES HER WITH A DROPKICK!! THE WORLD’S BEST DROP KICKER CONNECTS WITH THE REVOLUTIONARY COUNTER AS HE NOW GOES FOR THE COVER!! REX WINS!! ONE… TWO-
Rich Russillo: ROBERTS GETS HER SHOULDER UP! Rex McAlister quickly changed the complexion of this match with that dropkick counter as he now places ‘The Bird Of Prey’ in a grounded headlock. Rex reverting back to the fundamentals as Roberts gets her legs up and wrenches McAllister in leg scissors.
James Peters: McAllister has his head locked as he attempts a handstand. Roberts is trying to push him back down but REX HANDSPRINGS ONTO HIS FEET!! HE SMIRKS AT ROBERTS BEFORE JUMPING DOWN FOR A LOW DROPKICK!! HE GOES FOR THE COVER AGAIN!
ONE…. TWO- Persephone: DAMN IT!! She kicks out again. That should’ve been it for Raven Roberts as McAllister places her back into another headlock. I don’t think Raven can withstand the herculean biceps of the T-Rex because quite frankly, I wouldn’t be able to either.
Rich Russillo: It looks like she can as she now begins to get some footing on the ring mat. She begins to stick elbows and punches into the midsection that weakens the headlock. McAllister lets go of Raven, pulls her in and hooks her tights! VERTICAL SUPLEX!! NO!! RAVEN GOES OVER THE SHOULDERS AND HOOKS HIS ARM!! HIP TOSS!
James Peters: BUT MCALLISTER ATTACKS THE NECK WITH REPEATED DOWNWARD ELBOWS FROM THE FREED ARM! VICIOUS ELBOWS FROM MCALLISTER AS HE GOES FOR THE LAST ONE! RAVEN GRABS THE INCOMING ARM AND TRIES TO USE IT TO TOSS HIM OVER! REX KEEPS HIS GROUND AND ADVANCES FOR A HOOKED LARIAT!
Persephone: ROBERTS DUCKS DOWN, CIRCLES THE WAIST AND DUMPS HIM WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!! LOOK! MY LUV IS UNRUFFLED BY THE GERMAN SUPLEX AS HE’S ROLLED UP ONTO HIS FEET! ROBERTS TURNS AROUND TO THE SIGHT OF A SEEKING MISSILE NAMED REX MCALLISTER!! INNCOMMING!!
Rich Russillo: ROBERTS JUMPS ONTO HIM, SLIDES UP TO THE UPPER BODY WITH WHEELBARROW MOTION AND VAULTS HIM OVER WITH A HIP TOSS. SHE IS FINALLY ABLE TO TAKE HIM DOWN WITH THE HIP TOSS AS SHE BACK HANDSPRINGS OVER AND FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A DROPKICK!! SHE CAPS OFF THE COMBINATION AND GOES FOR THE LATERAL PRESS!
James Peters: REX POPS HIS SHOULDER UP! ‘The Bird Of Prey’ is now in command as she situates ‘The Rex Master’ down on the canvas with a grounded headlock of her own. Rex is able to put him into leg scissors although Roberts is able to extend upwards into a headstand. ‘The Huntress’ may be looking to return the favour as she tries to escape! BUT REX USES HIS LGS TO THRUST HER DOWN WITH A DRIVER OF SORTS AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: RAVEN KICKS OUT! Rex with a stellar and innovative move as he now plucks her off the ground and captures the waist! BACK SUPLEX!!
Rich Russillo: Roberts rolls over his shoulders and lands on her feet. McAllister turns around just as she shoots off the ground for A LOU THESZ PRESS!! BUT MCALLISTER DROPS DOWN AND PLANTS RAVEN ROBERTS DOWN WITH AN OVERHEAD BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX IN THE NICK OF TIME!! WHAT A CATCH AS REX NOW HAS ROBERTS IN HIS SIGHTS!
James Peters: MCALLISTER PUMPKINS RAVEN IN THE CORNER WITH A CORNER CLOTHESLINE AND LOOKS TO CULMINATE IT WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG! BUT RAVEN SHRUGS HIM OFF!! McAllister slides into the corner and back. RAVEN POPS HIM UP!!! AND PLANTS HIM DOWN WITH THE HUNTRESS BOMB!! COVER!
ONE…. TWO… T-
Persephone: YES!! REXY KICKS OUT!
Rich Russillo: Raven Roberts recalibrates herself while McAllister rolls under the bottom rope and rests on top of the apron. She rises up to her feet and steps onto the second rope to get a handful of Rex’s hair. She hooks his arms and she may end this match here with whatever she has in store!
James Peters: But Rex lifts her up instead and hoists her up into a suplex position on the apron! RAVEN TILTS DOWN AND DRILLS MCALLISTER ONTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING WITH A DEVASTATING DDT!! RAVEN CRUSHES HIS SKULL AS SHE GETS BACK UP AND INSERTS ‘THE REX MASTER’ BACK INTO THE SQUARED CIRCLE. RAVEN SPRINGS OFF THE TOP ROPE!! AND FLATTENS HIM WITH A SPRINGBOARD BACK ELBOW!! SHE HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!
ONE… TWO…. T-
Rich Russillo: REX LIFTS HIS SHOULDER UP! Roberts with the game-changing DDT as she now pulls Rex up to his feet and captures the leg for a T-BONE SUPLEX!! NO!! Rex fights out of it with brutal elbows to the face. He runs and rebounds off for a yakuza kick! Raven circles around and goes for the T-Bone once again! BUT REX TWISTS AROUND AND DROPS ROBERTS WITH A BUTTERFLY SUPLEX!!! PLUS A KIP-UP!!
Persephone: FUCK HER UP, REX! FUCK HER UP REAL GOOD! REX NOW CONNECTS WITH THE YAKUZA KICK!! HE DROPS DOWN FOR THE LATERAL PRESS!
ONE….. TWO… TH-
James Peters: ROBERTS KICKS OUT! Rex now stands in the corner and is ready to finish this! HE RUNS AND FLOATS OVER HER SHOULDERS! REX EFFECT! NO!! REX INSTEAD ELEVATES HER INTO A POWERBOMB!! AND PLANTS HER!! THE SIT-OUT POWERBOMB CONNECTS AS THE REFEREE NOW COUNTS!
ONE… TWO… TH-
Rich Russillo: ROBERTS KICKS-OUT! Rex now sizing Roberts up! STEP-UP ENZIGURI!! RAVEN DUCKS THE FOOT AND NAILS MCALLISTER IN THE BACK OF THE NECK WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! ‘The Rex Master’ is down while Roberts comes off the second rope!! SECOND-ROPE MOONSAULT!!
Persephone: REX GETS HIS KNEES UP!! YES!! WHAT THE!! RAVEN HOLDS ONTO HIS KNEES AND CINCHES IN A GROUNDED KNEEBAR! FUCK! FUCK FUCK! FUCK!
James Peters: RAVEN ROBERTS WITH A KNEEBAR LOCKED IN ON REX MCALLISTER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!! Remember, these two are days from a championship opportunity and walking into it with a physical health disadvantage will decrease their chances of success at Gateway To Glory! But like we said in the beginning, they don’t care!
Persephone: REX GETS HIS ARM OVER THE BOTTOM ROPE!! PRAISE GOD! Raven relinquishes the hold and runs to the opposite side of the ring. REXY, WATCH OUT!! MCALLISTER PICKS RAVEN UP INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY!! HERE WE GO!! FIREMAN’S CARRY DRIVER!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN FLIPS FORWARD OFF THE CLAWS OF MCALLISTER!! REX IS CONFUSED AS RAVEN SPINS AROUND!! FACELIFT!! NO!! REX DUCKS THE SPINNING HEEL KICK AND EXPLODES ONTO ‘THE BIRD OF PREY’ WITH A RUTHLESS BACK ELBOW!
James Peters: McAllister rebounds off the ropes and swings forward for a clothesline! RAVEN DUCKS THE CLOTHESLINE AND LEAPS OFF THE MIDDLE ROP!! LEAPING SPIKE HURRICANRANA!! NO!! MCALLISTER CIRCUMVENTS THE SPIKE RANA ONCE AGAIN AS HE HOLDS ONTO HER BY THE WAIST IN A POWERBOMB POSITION! HE LIFTS HER UP!
Persephone: RAVEN COUNTERS IT INTO A CANADIAN DESTROYER! WAIT!! REXY SEXY HOLDS ONTO HER ONCE AGAIN!! WHAT POWER! WHAT STRENGTH!! WHAT SEXINESS AS HE NOW THROWS HER DOWN FOR AN ALABAMA SLAM!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN USES THE MOMENTUM TO FLIP BACKWARDS OFF HIS BORAD SHOULDERS! REX CAN’T BELIEVE IT AS RAVEN HOISTS HIM UP AND PLUNGES HIM WITH A FIREMAN’S CARRY DRIVER! THAT’S ONE OF REX’S SIGNATURE MOVES AS SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!

Persephone: HAHA! REX WITH THE BIG BRAIN! TEAR HER FOOT OFF!! TWIST IT!! THIS IS IT!
Rich Russillo: BUT RAVEN MANAGES TO GRAB HIS FOOT AND TRANSITION IT INTO AN ANKLE LOCK OF HER OWN!
Persephone: GOD DAMNIT!
James Peters: REX IS ABLE TO USE BOTH LEGS TO PRESS AND THRUST RAVEN OFF TO RELINQUISH THE ANKLE LOCK!! BOTH COMPETITORS MAKE THEIR WAY UP TO THEIR FEET! REX HITS FIRST WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION AND COMES OFF THE ROPES! FOR THE CORKSCREW AXE KICK!!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND PULLS MCALLISTER DOWN INTO A FUJIWARA ARMBAR! THE WING BREAKER IS LOCKED IN AS REX SCRAMBLES TO GET A ROPE BREAK!!
Persephone: REX IS ABLE TO ROLL OVER AND GRAB BOTH LEGS!! AND SITS IN FOR A DOUBLE-LEGGED BOSTON CRAB!! WHAT A TRANSITION AS MCALLISTER ADDS TORMENT TO THE LOWER BACK OF THE ADULTERER!
Rich Russillo: REX LETS GO AS RAVEN SPINS HIM AROUND. Rex stumbles to the canvas while Raven comes off the ropes. RAVEN POPS HER UP INTO THE AIR AND DECKS HER WITH A POP-UP STEP-UP ENZIGURI! WHAT A KICK ACROSS HER LEFT EAR AS REX NOW COMES OFF THE ROPES! AND FLOATS OVER!! REX EFFECTTTTT!!
James Peters: RAVEN COUNTERS IT INTO A FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! ANOTHER WING BREAKER COUNTER AS MCALLISTER IS STUCK IN THE CENTER OF THE SQUARED CIRCLE AND NOWHERE TO GO! ‘The Rex Master’ is on the cusp of reaching his breaking point as Raven continues to manipulate the shoulder joint!
Persephone: REXY ROLLS HER OVER ONCE AGAIN!! BUT INSTEAD, HE CARRIES HER OFF THE GROUND!! AND DROPS HER ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE HEAD-FIRST WITH A DEADLIFT POWERBOMB!! THAT’S MY REX!
James Peters: RAVEN IS STAGGERING AND REX MCALLISTER NOW COMES DASHING IN FROM THE OPPOSITE CORNER! LEAPING KNEE STRIKE INTO THE CORNER! AND HE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH AN EMPHATIC OLYMPIC SLAM!! COUNT IT, REF!!
ONE…… TWO….. THR-
Rich Russillo: ROBERTS GETS HIS SHOULDERS UP! That wasn’t enough to put Roberts away and McAllister is not surprised! These two know each other so well and it’s been evident from how evenly-matched they’ve been throughout this match thus far. McAllister plants her with a standing spinebuster before twisting around and shooting up into the air! STANDING MOONSAULT!
James Peters: ROBERTS GETS BOTH FEET UP AND KICKS MCALLISTER UP INTO THE AIR!! ROBERTS WITH AN UPWARD DOUBLE FOOT PRESS RIGHT BEFORE ROBERTS WAS ABLE TO FLIP OVER THAT SENDS HIM HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING!! McAllister didn’t see that coming as Raven now emerges up to her feet! THE FACELIFT!!
Persephone: WAIT! REX DUCKS DOWN AND DRAGS HER DOWN INTO A SCHOOL-BOY!! BUT ROBERTS USES THE MOMENTUM TO ROLL ONTO HER FEET!! AND SHATTERS THE JAW OF REX WITH THE SPINNING HEEL KICK! THE FACELIFT CONNECTS! REX, PLEASE KICK-OUT!
ONE….. TWO…….. THRE-
Rich Russillo: MCALLISTER POWERS OUT!! CLOSE CALL FOR ‘THE REX MASTER’ AS HE WAS A SPLIT-SECOND AWAY FROM BEING VANQUISHED BY RAVEN ROBERTS! Raven with a shred of astoundment as she as well thought that was it. Raven now proceeds to step through the ropes and prey on McAllister on the apron.
James Peters: RAVEN SPRINGS ONTO THE TOP ROPE! MCALLISTER SHOOTS OFF THE GROUND AND SWEEPS HER LEGS! RAVEN GOES LARYNX FIRST ONTO THE TOP ROPE WHILE MCALLISTER NOW SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING!! HE SPRINTS BACK AND CHARGES INTO RAVEN ON THE APRON!!! HE MISSILES DOWN FOR THE SPEAR THROUGH THE ROPES!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN BLOCKS IT WITH HER KNEE! Rex went nose diving into the point of her knee as Raven now leaps off the top rope! MCALLISTER CATCHES HER INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY!! HE CARRIES ‘THE BIRD OF PREY’ INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND HOISTS HER UP!! ROBERTS TURNS IT INTO A DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER!! WHAT A COUNTER!!
Persephone: NO!! REX!! RECOVER!! ROBERTO DASHES THROUGH THE CANVAS AND SHOOTS THROUGH THE ROPES!! WATCH OUT!! TOPE SUICIDA FLIP PILEDRIVER!! YES! YES, A THOUSAND TIMES YES! REX BLOCKS THE FLIGHT DESTROYER ATTEMPTS AND HOLDS ONTO HER!! OH NO!! ALABAMA SLAM ONTO THE EDGE OF THE APRON!! HOLY SHIT!! THAT’S WHAT I LIKE, BABE!
James Peters: THE DAMN THUD OF RAVEN ROBERTS’ BACK BOUNCING OFF THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING WAS BRUTAL!! ABSOLUTE SAVAGERY MANIFESTED BY ‘THE REX MASTER’. This was the type of mentality that won McAllister the Grand Rampage crown as he now brings Raven back into the squared circle.
Rich Russillo: McAllister is perched on the top turnbuckle. What is he thinking here? HE JUMPS OFF THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE TO THE THIRD, TWISTING IN THE PROCESS AND SPLASHING ONTO RAVEN ROBERTS WITH A DOUBLE JUMP MOONSAULT!! WHAT RARE ATHLETICISM SHOWN BY ‘THE REX MASTER’ AS HE GOES FOR THE LATERAL PRESS!! COVVVERRR!!!!
Persephone: RAVEN KICKS-OUT! If that wasn’t enough to put away this bitch, this could be it! Rex has proven to be a McAllstar in this match and he’s going to prove that when he beats this illegal citizen tonight! HE LEAPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE AND TWISTS OFF! THREE-SIXTY SPIN CROSSBODY!
James Peters: RAVEN DRILLS REX WITH A DOUBLE KNEE GUTBUSTER IN MID-AIR!! WHAT A COUNTER AS SHE QUICKLY SOARS OFF THE ROPE!! AND LANDS THE SECOND-ROPE MOONSAULT CLEANLY INTO THE HEART OF ‘THE REX MASTER’! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
THREEEEEEEE- Rich Russillo: MCALLISTER KICKS OUT! Raven is furious and is understandably so! Raven is back up to her feet as she snatches both legs and looks to step in for a Boston crab. McAllister is able to attach his hands to the bottom rope, clinging on as Raven struggles to detach him. She tugs him off the ropes, but MCALLISTER MANAGES TO FLIP ONTO HIS FEET AND DECK ‘THE BIRD OF PREY’ WITH A PELE KICK!
Persephone: A Pele kick of perfection from Rexy as he now rebounds off the ropes and picks Raven up. RAVEN SHOOTS UP AND GOES FOR THE DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER! BUT REXY GRABS HER KNEES AND FLIPS HIM OVER! BACK-TO-BELLY PIN!
James Peters: RAVEN ESCAPES! Both elitists emerge up to their feet and charge into each other. YAKUZA KICK TO THE MUSHER FROM MCALLISTER! RAVEN EATS IT AND CONNECTS WITH A YAKUZA KICK OF HER OWN!! MCALLISTER BOOMERANGS BACK BUT RUNS INTO A PRECISION ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!
Rich Russillo: MCALLISTER IS FALTERING!! RAVEN GETS AHOLD OF HIM FROM BEHIND…. MCALLISTER WITH A PELE KICK! NO!! RAVEN SNATCHES HIS FOOT IN MID-AIR, ROLLS HIM BACKWARDS AND OVER, AND HOOKS HIS ARMS FOR THE CATTLE MUTILATION! SHE’S ADVANCING FOR THE AVIARY, BUT MCALLISTER CAPSIZES AND MANAGES TO PIN HER DOWN WITH A BACKSLIDE INSTEAD!
Persephone: RAVEN ESCAPES!! BOTH NOW ASCEND TO THEIR FEET! RAVEN IMMEDIATELY HOOKS HIM UP AND DRIVES HIM DOWN WITH A BRIDGING NORTHERN LIGHT SUPLEX! REXY, NO!! RAVEN INSISTS ON FLIPPING BACKWARDS FOR ANOTHER ONE, BUT IT’S A HUGE MISTAKE AS REX PUTS HER IN A GROUNDED GUILLOTINE HOLD!
James Peters: Raven Roberts is entangled within the body scissors guillotine as she attempts to fight out! Body shots to the ribs are to no avail as she proceeds to lift him up off the ground. Here’s the underrated inner core strength of the former Universal Women’s Champion as she now HOISTS HIM UP INTO A SUPLEX!! AND DRIVES HIM INTO THE CORNER TURNBUCKLES WITH A VERTICAL SUPLEX!
Rich Russillo: Roberts with a counter offence of desperation as she now slides under the bottom rope and begins to gingerly make her way up to the top turnbuckle. McAllister is laid out and supine on the canvas as Roberts has a bird’s eye view of the landscape! HERE SHE GOES! RAAAAAVEEENNNNNN’S WIIIIIIINNNNNNGGGGSSSS!! BUT MCALLISTER SHATTERS HER JAW WITH A LEAPING KNEE STRIKE BEFORE SHE COULD FLY!
Persephone: THE ALMIGHTY REX MASTER WITH THE KNEE AS HE NOW STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES AND CLIMBS UP THE TURNBUCKLES. Rex’s back is faced towards the ringside floor as he now hooks her tights! IS HE LOOKING FOR A SUPERPLEX ONTO THE CEMENT FLOOR!! YES! DO IT, REX!! FUCK HER UP!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN ROBERTS IS ABLE TO GET OUT OF THE SUPLEX HOLD AND SHOVE MCALLISTER OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! MCALLISTER SPLATTERS HARD ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR WHILE ROBERTS REELS INTO THE APRON. Both individuals recuperate while Roberts uses the ropes to get up onto her feet. McAllister is struggling to stand straight and wobbles while Raven schemes on the ringside floor.
James Peters: ROBERTS SPRINTS ACROSS THE RINGSIDE FLOOR AND SHOOTS THROUGH THE OPENING BETWEEN THE TURNBUCKLES! SHE SNATCHES MCALLISTER’S HAD IN MID-AIR AND DRILLS HIM WITH THE CANADIAN DESTROYER! THE FLIGHT DESTROYER ONTO THE CEMENT FLOOR CONNECTS AS SHE BRINGS HIM BACK INTO THE SQUARED CIRCLE!!!
Rich Russillo: McAllister is in La-La-Land as he somehow is able to get up at his feet! ROBERTS SOARS OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! AND DRILLS ‘THE REX MASTER’ WITH THE SHOOTING STAR METEORA! ‘THE BIRD OF PREY’ LANDS THE AERIAL ACE KNEE DROP AS SHE GOES FOR THE WIN!! THIS COULD BE IT!
James Peters: REX KICKS OUT!! Raven is apoplectic! We cannot underestimate the grit and determination of Rex McAllister as Raven now rebounds off the rope. SHE SLIDES ALL OVER REX FOR A TILT-A-WHIRL….. MCALLISTER DRILLS ROBERTS ONTO HIS KNEE! A TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER FROM ‘THE REX MASTER’
Persephone: That’s why he’s the best! That’s why he’s the Grand Rampage winner and will be the next World Champion! McAllister now grabs the bitch and hoists him up belly-down onto his shoulders! HE SLAMS HER DOWN!! NO!!
Rich Russillo: BEEAAAKKK BREAAAKKKERR!! RAVEN TURNS IT INTO A STUNNER! ROBERTS MAY HAVE NOT GOTTEN THE TILT-A-WHIRL MOTION BUT THAT WAS ENOUGH TO COMPLETE THE BEAK BREAKER AS SHE NOW IMPATIENTLY WAITS IN THE CORNER! ROBERTS LOOKING TO END THIS AS SHE SHOOTS OUT OF THE CORNER! James Peters: TAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!
Persephone: NO!! REXY CATCHES HER AND NAILS HER DOWN WITH A CRADLE BACKBREAKER!! RAVEN IS DOWN-AND-OUT AS REX NOW REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES! RAVEN IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS! MCALLISDADDY FLOATS OVER THE SHOULDERS!! AND DRILLS HER WITH THE REX EFFECT! YES! YES! YES! COVER!!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN POPS HER SHOULDER UP! McAllister can’t believe it as he tediously makes his way up to his feet. He grabs Raven’s head, hoists her and lifts her onto the turnbuckle. But Raven however, was able to fight her way out of the hold. McAllister reels into the corner as Raven charges into him! MCALLISTER GETS HIS FOOT UP!! Raven eats the kick and comes back in! MCALLISTER FOLLOWS UP WITH A ROPE-ASSISTED ENZIGURI!! RAVEN IS DOWN!!
James Peters: Raven lurches into the center of the ring as Rex jumps up onto the top turnbuckle! High-risk maneuver about to be conducted by McAllister as he stands on the tippy-top!! BUT LOOK! RAVEN SPRINGS OFF THE CANVAS AND JUMPS ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! MCALLISTER IS IN SHOCK AS SHE QUICKLY CLENCHES HIS TIGHTS!! OH MY GOD!! SUUUUPPPPPPERRRRRR BRAAAIIIIINNNNBUSSSTERRRRR!!!! A BRAINBUSTER OFF THE TOP ROPE INTO THE CANVAS AS RAVEN CRAWLS AND LAYS ON TOP!
Persephone: REX KICKS-OUT! Raven is now crouching the corner, thinking what it’s gonna take and let me just say, it will take everything and I mean EVERYTHING to take out my husband! This bitch has no idea what she’s gotten herself into.
Rich Russillo: Raven Roberts now on her feet! Rex is struggling to stand correctly WHILE RAVEN CHARGES IN FROM THE CORNER!! TALLLLLLONNNNNNNNNNNNN!!! NO!!! MCALLISTER DUCKS THE LEG AND DODGES THE TALON KICK. RAVEN TURNS AROUND TO THE SIGHT OF ‘THE REX MASTER’ FLOATING OVER. THE REX EFFECT!!!!!
James Peters: NO!! ROBERTS GRABS HIS WRIST, TWISTS AROUND AND ESCAPES. SHE JUMPS UP AND CONNECTS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! REX REELS INTO THE ROPES AND REBOUNDS OFF!! HE SHOOTS UP FOR THE LEAPING KNEE STRIKE! BUT ROBERTS COUNTERED IN MID-AIR WITH A SUPERKICK STRAIGHT TO THE JAW! WHAT A FLUSH SUPERKICK AS RAVEN NOW COMES OFF THE ROPES AND MOVES AROUND MCALLISTER!! ‘THE BIRD OF PREY’ WITH THE SECOND BEAKBREAKER!
Persephone: REXY COUNTERS THE STUNNER INTO A DRAGON SLEEPER! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL TRANSITION FROM REXY SEXY AS HE BRINGS HER DOWN FOR THE BODYSCISSORS! WAIT NO! RAVEN PINS HIM DOWN!! FUCK, FUCK, FUCK,FUCKAODWADKOAWKDPK

DEVASTATING PRECISION KNEE COUNTER AS REX NOW COMES OFF THE ROPES AND FLOATS OVER THE STUNNED ‘BIRD OF PREY’. REXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX EFFFFFFFFFFFFFFECCCT!
James Peters: THEEEEE FAACCEEEEELLLIIIIIFFFFFFFTTT!!! THE SPINNING HEEL KICK HITS BULLSEYE CLEAN ONTO THE JAW OF MCALLISTER AS RAVEN STUMBLES ONTO HIM! COVER!
Persephone: REX POPS HIS SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND!! WHAT HEART AND DETERMINATION BY ‘THE REX MASTER’ HERE AS RAVEN HAS THROWN EVERY SINGLE THING OUT OF HER ARSENAL AND SHE HAS YET TO VANQUISH HER!
Rich Russillo: McAllister is on one knee as Raven has an unlocked fire in her eyes! SHE CHARGES IN FROM THE CORNER!! TALON KICK!!! BUT REX ROLLS OUT OF THE RING IN THE NICK OF TIME!! MCALLISTER AVOIDING DISASTER AS HE RECUPERATES RINGSIDE. BUT RAVEN DOESN’T PLAN ON LETTING HER HUSBAND REST!!
James Peters: SHE RUNS THE ROPES AND SOARS OVER THE TOP ROPE!! MOOOONSAULLT PLANNCHA!! BUT MCALLISTER SLID INTO THE RING!! RAVEN LANDS UNPROTECTED INTO THE END OF THE RAMP WHILE MCALLISTER RUNS THE ROPES!!
Persephone: REXY SEXY SOARS OVER THE TOP ROPE!! AND EXPLODES ONTO RAVEN WITH A TOPE CON HILO!!! WHAT A DIVE AS HE NOW BRINGS ROBERTS BACK INTO THE RING!!! WHAT THE!?!? HE’S ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE. WHAT IS MY HUSBAND THINKING NOW?!?!?! OH MY!! SPIRRRRAAALLLLLL TAPPPPPPP!!!! REX MCALLISTER LANDS THE REX’S WINGS ONTO RAVEN AS HE HOOKS HER LEGS!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN POWERS OUT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND!!! HOW IN THE WORLD DID SHE DO THAT!! REX NOW IN THE CORNER LOOKING LIKE AN ANIMAL POSSESSED AS HE COMES OUT OF THE CORNER!! HE’S LOOKING FOR HIS OWN RENDITION OF THE TALON KICK!
James Peters: BUT RAVEN COUNTERS WITH A LEAPING KNEE STRIKE IN MID-AIR!! REX STAGGERS WHILE RAVEN COMES OFF THE ROPES, FLOATS OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND DRILLS REX WITH THE JUMPING EVEN FLOW DDT!! THE RAVEN EFFECT CONNECTS AS SHE NOW MOVES OVER FOR THE COVER!! THIS IS IT!!
Rich Russillo: REX MCALLISTER POPS HIS SHOULDER UP!!! ‘The Rex Master’ is still in this as these two have been able to kick out of their own finishers! Raven is in the corner, knowing what she must do to close in on her husband! She ascends to the top turnbuckle while McAllister is laid out in the middle of the ring!
James Peters: RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN’SSSSS WIIIIIIIIIINNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGSS!!!
Persephone: YES!!! MCALLISTER WAS ABLE TO ELEVATE HIS KNEES AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND AND RAVEN WENT CRASH LANDING INTO THEM!! WHAT BRILLIANCE SHOWN BY REX HAS HE NOW COMES OFF THE ROPES!! RAVEN IS OUT FOR THE PICKINGS!! THE REX EFFECT!!! THE REX EFFECT CONNECTS!! FOR THE WIN!!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN ROLLS OUT OF THE RING BEFORE REX COULD COVER HER!! MCALLISTER’S FACE FULL OF DISAPPOINTMENT AND MISERY AS RAVEN IS DOWN-AND-OUT ON THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!! MCALLISTER WANTS THIS WIN TO BE LEGIT AS HE QUICKLY ROLLS OUT OF THE RING.
James Peters: Rex helps Raven up to her feet and places her onto the apron before walking away and steps up the steel steps. RAVEN RUNS UP THE APRON WHILE REX HAS NO IDEA!!
Persephone: WATCH OUT REX!!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN TACKLES MCALLISTER AND SPEARS ‘THE REX MASTER’ THROUGH THE BARRICADE!! HOLY SHIT!!! HUSBAND AND WIFE TAKING EACH OTHER TO THE LIMIT HERE IN THE MAIN EVENT OF VOLTAGE AS THEY JUST CAPSIZED A CORNER OF THE BARRICADE!
James Peters: How much more can these two handle! They have a tag team championship in a couple of days! The referee is now starting to administer the ring count as McAllister and Roberts both gingerly slither out of the barricade debris.
( McAllister and Roberts clamber towards the bottom apron in an attempt to use it to help them drag themselves up. )
( Both competitors are halfway up the apron, but McAllister is unable to maintain his stance and falls to the ground. )
( McAllister gets ahold of the apron as Roberts has made her way back to the ring. )
( McAllister tries to muster the strength as he sluggishly pulls himself up the apron. )
Persephone: YES!! REX SAVES THE DAY AND CONTINUES THIS MATCH AS RAVEN IS IN SHOCK!! I KNEW MCALLISTER WOULD STAY ALIVE!
James Peters: Raven Roberts in a sense of disappointment and shock, but another half of her knows how resilient and strong Rex is. Roberts grabs McAllister by the wrist and pulls himself up to his feet. Roberts shows a sign of respect by helping him, but I don’t think she intends on giving him a fair fight! ROBERTS BACKS UP AND GOES FOR THE TALON KICK!
Rich Russillo: YAKUZA KICK FROM REX!! WHAT A KICK AS HE NOW COMES OFF THE ROPES! HE FLOATS OVER FOR THE REX EFFECT!! BUT ROBERTS CLOCKS HIM OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE FACELIFT!! Raven Roberts not letting McAllister fall as he holds him with a foot beneath the jaw.
James Peters: Rex McAllister is out like a light and Roberts is just dragging it! Roberts is showing remorse and this might pay! She shrugs him away into the ropes and DECKS HIM WITH THE TALON KICK!! THE TALON KICK CONNECTS AS SHE CRAWLS OVER FOR THE COVER!!
( Right as Roberts was about to get the lateral press, Rex rolls under the bottom rope and falls to the outside floor. )
Persephone: HAHA!! THAT’S THE UNPARALLELED RING PRESENCE AND IQ FROM REX! NO ONE’S BETTER THAN REX AND HE KEEPS ON PROVING IT!
Rich Russillo: Deja-vu for ‘The Bird of Prey’ as when McAllister was able to hit his finisher, she rolled out of the ring before he was able to hook the cover, and Rex McAllister has just done the same. Raven Roberts is embracing the same amount of disappointment is despair as Rex earlier while she slides under the bottom rope and grabs him.
James Peters: MCALLISTER WITH A HUGE RIGHT OUT OF NOWHERE!! It unruffles ‘The Bird Of Prey’ as she ponderously responds with a massive right of her own! I don’t think it’s wise to exchange strikes with a master of Mixed Martial Arts as they continue to exchange lefts and rights!
Persephone: REX NOW OVERWHELMS HER WITH FOREARM SMASHES! MCALLISTER UNLOADS ONTO HER BEFORE RAVEN TURNS HIM AROUND AND THRUSTS HIM INTO THE RINGPOST! GET FUCKED!
Rich Russillo: BUT ROBERTS STOPS HERSELF BEFORE GOING FACE-FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST! ‘The Bird Of Prey’ was about to get a facelift of her own as REX CHARGES IN FOR A CLOTHESLINE! ROBERTS DUCKS AND GOES FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! MCALLISTER DUCKS AND ROBERTS SMASHES HER FOOT ONTO THE RINGPOST!! DID YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF THAT?!?!
James Peters: Raven Roberts crutching her left foot in agony as REX RECOVERS AND BLASTS HIS JAW WITH A SAVAGE KNEE STRIKE!! MY GOD!! I THINK I SAW SPIT OR A TOOTH FLYING AS REX NOW GRABS HER AND SITUATES HER ONTO THE STEEL STEPS. GET HER INTO THE RING AND FINISH THE JOB! WHAT IS HE THINKING!!
Persephone: Rexy places her head between his legs and looks at the capsized barricade. He is getting revenge for the earlier spear as he hooks his arms around one leg! YES! REX!! MAKE HER PAY!!! SHE FLIPS HER OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: GOTCH-STYLE FLIP PILEDRIVER OFF THE STEEL STEPS AND ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!! SHE’S GOTTA BE DEAD!! REX BRINGS HER BACK INTO THE RING AND HOOKS HER UP!! REX MCALLISTER SECURES THE WIN!! COUNT IT, REF!
James Peters: ….
Rich Russillo: …..
James Peters: RAVEN ROBERTS GETS HIS SHOULDER UP! YOU’VE GOT TO BE JOKING ME!! REX TRYING TO CONFIRM WITH THE REFEREE AS HE CAN’T BELIEVE IT! ‘THE REX MASTER’ IS BESIDE HIMSELF AS HE NOW PROCEEDS TO CLIMB TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!
Rich Russillo: REX MCALLISTER IS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!! ‘THE REX MASTER’ LOOKING TO GO ABOVE AND BEYOND AS HE FLIPS INTO THE AIR!! SHOOOOOOTTTTTINNNNNNNNNNGG STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRR PRESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
Persephone: NO!!!! RAVEN ROBERTS MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND MY REXY GOES CRASH LANDING UNPROTECTED INTO THE CANVAS!! NO!!! REX, PLEASE!!! REX!!!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN IS UP TO HER FEET WHILE REX DOESN’T KNOW WHERE HE IS!! REX MIGHT BE CONCUSSED FOR ALL WE KNOW AS RAVEN SIGNALS FOR THE END!! THE TALO-
Persephone: NO!! FUCK!! REX, LOOK!!
( Raven hears the ear-deafening screams of Persephone, looks at her as she rips open her shirt and flashes her tits. Roberts’ eyes incredibly widen as she completely shifts her attention onto Persephone. )
Raven Roberts: Who in the hell do you think you are?
Persephone: YOU WISH YOU HAD THESE!
Rich Russillo: REX SHOOTS OUT OF THE BLUE AND ROLLS RAVEN UP IN A SCHOOL BOY!! NOT LIKE THIS!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Alive” by P.O.D hits, cueing for Persephone to jump up beside the table in the disgust of her fellow commentators and begins to jump up and down in excitement. Rex rolls to the other side of the ring as they both look at each other in shock. )
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WI-
Rich Russillo: RAVEN ROBERTS LEAPS ONTO PERSEPHONE AND STARTS TO WILD OUT ONTO OUR FELLOW COMMENTATOR WITH LEFTS AND RIGHTS!! GROUND AND POUND BY THE LIVID “BIRD OF PREY’.
James Peters: LOOK INSIDE THE RING!! DRAKE KING AND THE VISUAL PROPHET BLINDSIDING REX MCALLISTER. THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS ARE STOMPING AWAY AT ONE-HALF OF “FIRE & ICE” NOW AS RAVEN ROBERTS TAKES HER ATTENTION OFF OF PERSEPHONE AND LOOKS IN THE RING! SHE SLIDES INTO THE RING!
Rich Russillo: BUT SHE WALKS RIGHT INTO THE ‘MASTERCLASS’. RAVEN ROBERTS WENT RIGHT INTO THE FLAPJACK KISS TO THE HEAD AND ‘THE BIRD OF PREY’ IS OUT COLD!! SHE’S OUT LIKE A LIGHT AS “DRIZZY & VIZZY” GANG UP ON THE OTHER HALF, REX MCALLISTER.
James Peters: The reigning EAW Unified Tag Team Champions are laying waste to their Gateway to Glory challengers! The Visual Prophet is pulling the defenceless Rex McAllister up to his feet while Drake King, the reigning EAW World Heavyweight Champion runs into the ropes! THE FUSSSIONNNNNNN DAAAANNNNNNCEEEE!!!
Rich Russillo: The Guillotine leg sweep combination connects onto Rex McAllister as ‘Drizzy & Vizzy’ has made it known! They don’t intend on losing their EAW Unified Tag Team Championships and they’ve foreboden of what may be the result of “Fire & Ice” come Gateway To Glory, and the result will be “Drizzy & Vizzy” still your EAW Unified Tag Team Champions.
(Voltage fades back to the arena, where James Peters is in the center of the ring. There are two chairs in the ring next to him, one for each competitor that will be interviewed just before their big match at Pain for Pride.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the competitors of Voltage’s Pain for Pride main event. First up, the challenger for the EAW Championship. The 2020 Grand Rampage winner, Hall of Famer, and one half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Rex McAllister!
(All of the fans in attendance begin to cheer as ‘Alive’ by P.O.D hits. Rex McAllister soon walks out to the stage as the fans begin to cheer even louder due to his appearance, as he immediately walks down to the ring. He grabs a microphone before entering the ring, and Rex shakes James’ hand before taking a seat in one of the chairs that are in the ring next to him.)
James Peters: Now, please welcome the Champion, a future Hall of Famer in her own right who won the EAW Championship at Road to Redemption 2019, Andrea Valentine!
(The cheering continues as ‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX hits, and Andrea Valentine makes her way to the stage. She has the EAW Championship on her shoulder, and grabs a microphone as well before walking down to the ring. She enters the ring, and raises her Championship before taking a seat in the opposite chair.)
James Peters: Thank you both for joining us, I’m glad the two of you could make it. Now the first person I’d like to address is actually you, Rex, if that’s fine with you.
Rex McAllister: Sure.
James Peters: Perfect. So as we all know, your road to Pain for Pride has been a long and unforgiving one, so how exactly do you feel knowing that in only one week you’ll be competing in your third Pain for Pride main event match in a row?
Rex McAllister: To be honest I’m excited. It wasn’t easy getting here, but I still made it. I have a big opportunity at hand, and I’m finally going to do what I failed to do for two years now, and that’s win a Pain for Pride main event. I lost to Cage back at Pain for Pride: Festival and I failed to win the triple threat at Pain for Pride last year, but I know things will be different this time. I’ve had a lot of setbacks and roadblocks come my way, but all they’ve done is make me stronger, and when I look back at my career leading up to now, I don’t think there’s a single thing I’d change about my journey. Everything I’ve been through, whether it be success or failure, was necessary in order for me to make it where I am now. Every obstacle I’ve faced has all been part of me becoming the man I am today. I know that I’m ready this time around, and while it’s unfortunate that it’s going to have to happen at Andrea’s expense, I’m going to cap off this two year long journey with a victory at Pain for Pride.
James Peters: Thank you. Andrea, what about you? Do you have anything you’d like to say to Rex?
(Andrea looks at Rex for a moment before taking the EAW Championship off of her shoulder and looking down at it. It’s no doubt that Andrea had gone through a lot to remain Champion as long as she had, and there’s no way she would want to lose the Championship at the biggest event of the year. After a few seconds, Andrea shakes her head before putting the title back on her shoulder, and beginning to speak.)
Andrea Valentine: Rex, I respect you, but I will not let you get your moment at my expense. You had multiple opportunities to get your big moment at Pain for Pride, and you’re the one that blew it on both occasions. You should have sucked it up and used that kendo stick on Cage while you had the chance two years ago at Pain for Pride: Festival, and last year you should’ve found a way to get back into the ring faster and break up the choke Impact had on Noah. You weren’t able to do either of those things and that isn’t my fault. I’m the EAW Champion now, and I’m not going to let you or anyone else change that. I began the new decade as the EAW Champion, ushering in a new era of champions and leading this company as the face of it. I’m proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish, and I will add “Pain for Pride main event winner” to my already impressive list of accolades. I’ve gone through Terry Chambers, Charlie Marr, Malcolm Jones, and Mr. DEDEDE to get here. At Pain for Pride, I will defeat Rex McAllister and continue my reign as Champion.
James Peters: Well Andrea, you’ve definitely been on what seems to be a dream run as of late.
Andrea Valentine: That’s true, and I have to admit it’s been pretty mind blowing. I never really saw myself in this position. I always knew I’d become a World Champion, but the EAW Championship isn’t the one I ever actually had my sights set on. I know that there’s women out there like Constance Blevins that like to talk about how women like Cameron Ella Ava, Kassidy Heart, and I look down on titles like the Universal Women’s and Specialists Championships, but that’s not true at all. I had a dream run with the Specialists Championship, and in the process I nearly broke my best friend’s record. I have nothing but respect for the Specialists Championship and the Universal Women’s Championship. I never asked for any World title shot, let alone a shot at the EAW Championship, but I’m not mad about it. I won the Extreme Elimination Chamber back at Road to Redemption, and I’ve constantly backed that win up ever since. This has been a fairytale of a season for me, and this is a dream I don’t plan to ever wake up from.
James Peters: And you, Rex?
Rex McAllister: If you really do see this as a fairytale, then I guess that just means I’m the ultimate villain because I am going to end your Championship reign, and in the process win my third World Championship. I’ve had to scratch and crawl my way back here after years of failure, and I’m not about to let my Pain for Pride moment slip through my fingers for a third time. The EAW Championship will be mine, and there’s not a lot you can do to stop me.
Andrea Valentine: I can, and I will stop you. You worked hard to get here but so did I, and I won’t let my Championship reign end at Pain for Pride. I won’t be used as a stepping stone for you.
Rex McAllister: I guess we’re just going to have to see about that a week from now.
(Both competitors get out of their chairs, standing in front of each other, face to face. As they do this, the promo video for their championship match begins to play.)
James Peters: Well ladies and gentlemen, here you have it. Voltage’s Pain for Pride main event, Andrea Valentine versus Rex McAllister for the EAW Championship. I wish you two good luck, and may the best person win.
(James Peters begins to exit the ring as Rex and Andrea continue to stand face to face, and soon after Andrea raises her EAW Championship as the small crowd begins to cheer. It’s clear to see how much both competitors want to win that Championship, as neither of them look away from their opponent as Voltage fades out for the final time before Pain for Pride, and the last time of the season.)
