(EAW intro plays.)
(A recap of Pain for Pride 13 begins to play. Rex McAllister versus Andrea Valentine, Voltage’s main event match for the EAW Championship. Highlights of the match are shown with the two going back and forth, hitting their biggest moves on one another, before finally Rex would make Andrea pass out with the Rings of Rex submission, allowing him to win a Pain for Pride main event for the first time, capturing the EAW Championship in the process. After the recap, the camera cuts to the socially distance crowd, all wearing merch of their favorite Elitists. One of the fans is wearing an “EMPIRE STRIKES BACK” Lisa Wren T-Shirt, meanwhile the camera shows another fan, who is wearing an “I’M NOT ADOPTED” Ms. Extreme shirt. Afterwards the camera finally fades to the announcers desk, where only James Peters and Rich Russillio are seated.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen.. Welcome to Voltage! I am your head commentator James Peters, and with me is Rich Russillo! At Pain for Pride we saw tons of classic moments, one of the best being in our main event where Rex McAllister managed to capture the EAW Championship, winning a Pain for Pride main event for the first time after trying two times before this.
Rich Russillo: It was a great night, and after Pain for Pride the excitement didn’t stop. The week right after was the draft, and wow! I don’t even know what to say.
James Peters: The Voltage roster is stacked.
Rich Russillo: It really is. Our number one draft pick, as well as the overall number one pick was the former World Heavyweight Champion Drake King. I don’t exactly know anything about his whereabouts these days, but despite the madness that occurred at Pain for Pride, he’s definitely a great asset to our roster.
James Peters: Then our second pick was Miss Cash in the Vault Darcy May Morgan! Unlike Drake Darcy had an amazing night, as now she has the ability to become a World Champion whenever she wants to! Afterwards we got even more amazing additions such as current Universal Women’s Champion Minerva, Myles who has not been pinned or submitted a single time since his return at Grand Rampage, Malcolm Jones who finally ended his feud with Charlie Marr at Pain for Pride, and so much more!
Rich Russillo: National Elite Champion Sienna Jade is someone I’m glad to have on the roster, and let’s not forget the EAW Champion himself who was actually ineligible for drafting, Rex McAllister! What a roster, and tonight we’re about to see that roster go to work for the first time this season! I’m excited for tonight, although I’ve got to admit, I’m most interested in whatever Persephone’s about to do here.
(Persephone is standing in the ring with a huge smile on her face. She has a microphone in her hand, and there’s two chairs seated next to one another in the middle of the ring, meanwhile the rest of the ring is decorated with confetti and balloons, fit for a celebration or a party. The fans in the arena begin to cheer as the first Voltage of the season is finally on air, and it soon becomes obvious why there’s so many decorations, and why Persephone actually looks happy to open up Voltage.)
Persephone: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Rex McAllister EAW Championship celebration! At Pin for Pride my beloved Rex McAllister beat that DISGUSTING WITCH Andrea Valentine to capture the EAW Championship! Not only that, but after two years of failing, he finally won in a Pain for Pride main event match! Rex McAllister deserves this more than anyone else! There were a lot of Championships changing hands at Pain for Pride, but this is the ONLY title change that mattered! Rex deserves a party and he’s gonna get one, so please welcome the group responsible for making the entrance music for the greatest Elitist of all time, P.O.D!!!!!
(The crowd begins cheering as all of the members of P.O.D begin making their way to the stage. They stop at the stage and get ready, before finally beginning to play ‘Alive’, the entrance music for the current EAW Champion.)
Persephone: Now, ladies and gentlemen… Please welcome… THE CURRENT AND FOREVER REIGNING EAW CHAMPION…. THE ONLY HALF OF THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS I CARE ABOUT…. THE ONLY GOOD CLASS OF 2020 HALL OF FAMER….. SEXY REXY MCALLISTER!!!!!
(As ‘Alive’ continues playing, the crowd grows louder as Rex McAllister slowly walks out to the stage with the EAW Championship on his shoulder and his Unified Tag Team Championship around his waist. As soon as he walks out he’s greeted with pyro that shocks him, especially seeing as they’re in the performance center rather than a real arena. He looks speechless at all the decorations, and the fact that Persephone actually got P.O.D to play Rex’s theme live. He can’t believe she’s gone through all that trouble for him, but soon he begins making his way down to the ring.
Persephone: REXY!! SO GLAD YOU COULD MAKE IT!!
(Persephone goes in for a hug but Rex puts his hand in front of her to stop her.)
Rex McAllister (Off-Mic): Um, glad to be here.
Persephone: Please Rex, take a seat.
(Rex takes a seat in one of the chairs in the ring, and Persephone sits in the one next to his before moving it as close as she possibly can to Rex before putting it in between the two as he clearly wants to speak.)
Rex McAllister: Uhh, did you really do all of this for me?
Persephone: Of course I did! You’re Rex McAllister, why wouldn’t I do all of this? It’s the least I could’ve done for someone as flawless as you. That reminds me, I actually wanted you out here so I could interview you if that’s okay.
Rex McAllister: Sure, why not?
Persephone: GREAT! First question, how does it feel knowing that you’re the EAW Champion now? You’re the best! Nobody can touch you! Voltage is the Rex McAllister show and that’ll NEVER change! But yeah how are you feeling?
Rex McAllister: Well, I feel great-
Persephone: Is it because of me? Do I make you feel better?
Rex McAllister:…. Well it’s mainly because I finally ended a Pain for Pride losing streak. It’s been said a thousand times now how difficult my journey to this past Pain for Pride was, but in the end it was worth it. Everything I went through since 2018, it all paid off.
Persephone: Wow, what a goat. If you ask me those past two Pain for Pride losses were all flukes. You’re so talented, so dedicated, there’s no way you should ACTUALLY be losing. I mean come on, you’re Rex McAllister, you’re a hall of famer for a reason.
Rex McAllister: I am a hall of famer, it’s been a few weeks but it still feels crazy being able to say that.
Persephone: Not to me! You were always a hall of famer in my eyes. You’re the best human being to ever grace the planet! Anyways, next. After hearing about that your situation with Raven, have you ever thought about the fact that my womb actually works-
Rex McAllister: Alright look. I think we need to set some boundaries here.
Persephone: What? Naaahh. I love you Rexy! Bow why don’t we talk about Bloodsport, that’s the show that’s coming up right?
Rex McAllister: Yes.
Persephone: Alright, perfect!
Rex McAllister: Well I’m actually excited for Bloodsport. There’s a lot of excellent Elitists I have the chance to compete against-
Persephone: Hold on! Excellent? HA!! There’s not a single person on the Voltage roster even close to being excellent. Other than you of course !
Rex McAllister: Nobody?
Persephone: NOBODY! That’s why the Draft didn’t matter to me. Sure there’s a ton of former World Champions here but they’re all garbage compared to you. TLA? Has-been, and his prime only lasted like three months. Drake King? The definition of a geek, I don’t know how anyone ever took the non-swearing virgin seriously. Ahren Fournier? He just sucks and he wasn’t even a real threat during his one World title reign. Malcolm Jones? Probably the most overrated Elitist on the roster. I don’t know why everyone was so excited to see him return, but I know for a fact that you’d destroy him Rexy, just like you would everyone else. The already “established” talent can’t compare to you, and all of the “future stars” on the brand will never be able to compare to you. Shawn Sturgis, SOSA Henderson, Myles, Terry Chambers, none of them are any good. Not a single one of those men will ever be World Championship level, nor will they ever hold a candle to my perfect Rexy! Even Darcy May Morgan isn’t a threat to you since if she wants to be respected at all, she needs to stick to her word and go for that worthless piece of trash Universal Women’s Championship. You hear that Rex? There is NOBODY that can even come close to taking your title-
(Rex takes the microphone out of Persephone’s hand before pointing to the commentary desk, clearly wanting her to exit the ring. She obliges, leaving the ring with an upset look on her face before Rex begins to speak.)
Rex McAllister: On the contrary to what Persephone said, the level of competition on Voltage this year is ridiculous, and will push me to go further than ever before. This might be one of the greatest groups of talent I’ve ever seen, and that’s just astonishing. All of the names Persephone mentioned are talented in their own right, and I’m excited to be surrounded by so many former, current, and future Champions, which is why I want to issue a challenge for Bloodsport. There’s too many talented Elitists to simply pick out one, so I want someone, ANYONE to step up. I know that no matter who answers I’m going to get one hell of a fight, so I’m willing to defend this title against anyone, all you have to do is say the word.
(Almost on cue, ‘Enemy Strike’ by Yuki Hayashi hits, and the socially distanced crowd immediately begins to boo. Soon after Myles walks to the stage with a microphone in his hand, and as he looks at the members of P.O.D already at the stage, they immediately begin to pack their stuff and head backstage. Afterwards Myles walks down to the ring, and enters the ring, standing right in front of Rex who got out of his chair, before finally beginning to speak.)
Myles: Rex, anyone that is familiar with me knows that I don’t care at all about that EAW Championship. That title is completely worthless to me, but what I do care about is hurting the people this company places on a pedestal. The people these fans put on a pedestal. You’re one of those people Rex. In my eyes you’re nothing but Championship oriented and gold oriented, and it makes me wonder whether or not you even love this sport, or if that love has simply turned into greed.
(Rex has a confused look on his face, and he shakes his head, but Myles continues talking before he could get the chance to speak.)
Myles: I know all about your little journey to win the EAW Championship at this past Pain for Pride. You lost the EAW Championship to Cage back in 2018 at Pain for Pride and since then you’ve been struggling to find your way into the position you’re in now, I get it. For some reason everyone else has been invested in your road here, but everything about that story disgusts me and should not be celebrated whatsoever. You spent TWO WHOLE YEARS dwelling on a loss that, in my opinion at least, is completely insignificant. Greed is what drives a person to cry over spilt milk, and I don’t respect your materialistic need for Championship gold at all.
Rex McAllister: This isn’t about greed or a materialistic need for Championships. At Pain for Pride 11 I lost the EAW Championship in the Pain for Pride main event and since then I worked my way back up until I could finally make up for my failures of the past.
Myles: Honestly Rex I don’t want to hear it. The real reason I came out here is because you asked for a fight. All I want is to fight and hurt as many people as I can, so if it’s a fight you want at Bloodsport Rex, it’s a fight you’re gonna get. If that means I’m able to take something that you poured your blood sweat and tears into then so be it, and once I take that EAW Championship from you, it’s going straight in the trash can. Where it belongs.
(‘Enemy Strike’ begins playing once again, and Myles and Rex simply stare at one another. Neither man moves at all, and you can feel the tension surrounding the two after that bold statement from Myles. Myles has accepted Rex’s challenge, but not in the way Rex expected. The two men simply continue their staredown, not saying a single word as Voltage begins to fade to a commercial break.)
(LA Fitness commercial featuring Terry Chambers. The commercial simply shows a before and after picture of Terry two weeks ago compared to now.)
(Voltage returns from commercial break with Bella Braxton standing in the ring with a microphone in hand.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!
(‘Diamonds’ by Beyoncé begins to blare through the speakers to a mixed reaction of boos and cheers.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…hailing from San Francisco, California…weighing in at 126 pounds…the ‘Hot Commodity’…CAAAAANDIIIIIICE BLLLAAAAAIR!!!
James Peters: Now we start Candice Blair’s introduction to Voltage, as tonight is her debut night against another debuting superstar. The only difference is she isn’t new like he is, she has experience in an EAW ring and I’m excited to see how this match turns out.
Rich Russillo: Her opponent is great but I have my doubts. Candice Blair is super talented, and is set on making Season 14 hers. How she does that is up to her, but right now she is starting her mission to superstardom!
(Candice Blair hops onto the apron and enters the ring, before heading to the top rope and extending her arms. ‘Diamonds’ quickly fades out and is replaced by ‘The Pheonix’ by Fallout Boy. Donovan Duke walks onto the stage with his arms by his side with a grin on his face.)
Rich Russillo: And here is her opponent! He put in a good effort on Fight Grid, only to lose to Mason Massacre. But tonight, he looks to stomp that loss into a win against Candice Blair! This guy’s talent is unreal, but talent isn’t all, experience is a factor and being able to perform in front of a crowd is nerve racking.
Persephone: Already hate him.
James Peters: Tonight is a big night for this young talent, and he’s out to prove that he can become one of the best wrestlers in the world. He’s facing off against a huge task, but that’s not to say he hasn’t got a chance!
Bella Braxton: And introducing her opponent…Reigning from Stillwater, Oklahoma…THE OKLAHOMA GENTLEMAN…DONOVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN DUKE!
(Donovan hops onto the apron and points at himself as his name is called out, before he enters the ring. He claps for himself as a way to hype himself up before he waits in his corner.)
James Peters: You can see the joy on that man’s face, but you can also see focus. Focus that not a lot of people have in their debut, and we’re about to find out how he’ll handle a stage like this.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: And the bell rings, as these two opponents square off against each other. Candice Blair has Donovan Duke stuck in a headlock, applying pressure to his cheek and ears using her upper arm! Donovan Duke slips out of the hold and grabs Candice by the waist, maybe looking for some form of German Suplex? But Candice uses the bottom of her hands to break the grip, before dropping to her back. She raises her legs up towards Donovan’s arms and pulls him down into a roll up, but Donovan slides back to his feet with a hold of Candice’s left leg! He flips her onto her stomach, and locks in an ankle loc- No! Candice Blair rolls into her back and sends Donovan Duke sliding towards the turnbuckles, but he manages to stop himself from colliding with them at the last second! Amazing athleticism and ring awareness displayed from both competitors here so far!
Rich Russillo: The bell has only just rung and action is about to pick up, as Donovan Duke sprints forward and hits Candice Blair with a clothesline, which is countered with a big boot to Donovan’s arm! And now Candice quickly follows up with a roundhouse kick to the hea- No! Donovan Duke catches the leg before sweeping her other, sending her crashing down to the ground! A great counter from The Oklahoma Gentleman! He looks for an early pin attempt!
James Peters: Not even two, Candice Blair kicks out at one! I didn’t have a single doubt that she would stay in the match this early on!
Persephone: Come on, really? You gotta be joking me.
James Peters: Come again?
Rich Russillo: Candice and Donovan both stand up at the same time, but Donovan is the first to act as he moves forward and hits a Swinging Neckbreak- No, it’s countered again! This time Candice counters with a neckbreaker of her own, sending Donovan crashing into the mat back first! Candice doesn’t seem to think it’s enough, as she’s not covering him. She rises to her feet with a little assistance from the ropes, before waiting in the corner for Donovan to do the same…She sprints forward…BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE! NO, DONOVAN DUKE SIDESTEPS…DEALER’S CHOICE, THE SPINNING BACK HAN- WAIT THAT WAS DUCKED AS WELL! SLINGBLADE! A SLINGBLADE TO DONOVAN DUKE KNOCKS HIM TO THE GROUND! CANDICE STANDS BACK UP…STANDING MOONSAULT INTO THE DOUBLE KNEES! HER KNEES DROVE INTO DONOVAN’S CHEST, POSSIBLY CRACKING A RIB! THE COVER!!!
ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEE-
James Peters: IT’S OVE- NO! DONOVAN DUKE GETS THE SHOULDER UP, I THOUGHT IT WAS OVER! CANDICE BLAIR DOESN’T WANT TO WASTE TIME AS SHE LIFTS DUKE BACK TO HIS FEET, NO NOT THIS…CANDY DESTROYER!!! NO, DONOVAN DUKE COUNTERS IT AT THE LAST TIME WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!! I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING! HE BRIDGES ONTO HIS FEET AND LIFTS CANDICE UP INTO A SECOND NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!!! HE’S NOT DONE! HE ROLLS BACKWARDS ONTO HIS FEET, BEFORE LIFTING HER BACK UP! AND A THIRD NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX TO COMPLETE A TRIPLET OF SUPLEXES! AND NOW HE FINALLY BRIDGES INTO A COVER!!!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-
Rich Russillo: ALMOST! HE ALMOST HAD IT! CANDICE BLAIR LIFTS HER ARM UP AT THE LAST SECOND, AND THE MATCH IS STILL GOING!
James Peters: Donovan Duke thought he had it there, but fell into surprise after the kick out! Donovan scurries backwards to the corner and stands up, waiting for his opponent to recover…Candice gets to her feet and turns around only to be met with a superkick! Candice falls back down, as Donovan heads to the top rope! He climbs the turnbuckles and stands up on the top rope…He leaps backwards…MOONSAULT! NO, THE KNEES ARE UP! CANDICE GETS HER KNEES UP INTO THE CHEST OF DONOVAN DUKE! SHE STANDS UP, AS DOES DONOVAN, AND RUNS TO THE ROPES! SPRINGBOARD ARM DRAG!! DONOVAN ROLLS TO THE CORNER! CANDICE BLAIR RISES BACK TO HER FEET AND CHARGES TOWARDS DUKE…CORNER METEORA! THE KNEES DRIVEN INTO THE FACE OF DONOVAN DUKE, THIS COULD BE IT! SHE DRAGS HIM TO THE CENTER AND GOES FOR ANOTHER PINFALL!!! ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
THREEEEEEEEEE- Rich Russillo: KICK OUT! DONOVAN DUKE KICKS OUT, AND PUSHES CANDICE OFF OF HIM! HE ROLLS ONTO HIS STOMACH AND TRIES STANDING BACK U- BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE! DONOVAN IS SENT BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE, AND CANDICE COVER- NO! DONOVAN ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE BEFORE SHE CAN GET HER ARM OVER HIS CHEST!
Persephone: I hope he doesn’t get back in. Yawn.
James Peters: Candice Blair follows him out, however! She’s not done with him as she tries to pick him up to his fe- DROP TOE HOLD, OH GOD! CANDICE IS SENT FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST! WAS THIS AN ACT OF DESPERATION, OR PURE INSTINCT? I DON’T KNOW, BUT WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT THIS COULD HUGELY BENEFIT DONOVAN DUKE IN THIS MATCHUP! HE GRABS HER BY HER HAIR AND THROWS HER BACK INTO THE RING! HE CLIMBS ONTO THE APRON AND HEADS TO THE TOP ROPE ONCE AGAIN…MOONSAULT, THIS TIME IT CONNECTS! IT COULD ALL BE OVER RIGHT HERE AS HE HOOKS THE LEG!
Rich Russillo: HE DID IT, NO! ROPE BREAK! SHE HAS HER FOOT ON THE ROPE, AND THE REFEREE SAW IT! IT ISN’T OVER JUST YET!
Persephone: I ask you this every week…STOP. SHOUTING.
Rich Russillo (whispering): anything for yo-
James Peters: BOW AND ARROW! DONOVAN DUKE QUICKLY LOCKS IN A BOW AND ARROW HOLD, DRIVING HIS KNEES INTO THE BACK OF HIS OPPONENT AND TRYING TO MAKE HER SUBMIT! WILL SHE TAP?!?!
Rich Russillo (whispering): shes screaming in agony as her back is bent in half
James Peters: DONOVAN IS WRENCHING HER BODY AND PUSHING HIS KNEES INTO HER BACK AS HARD AS HE POSSIBLY CAN, AND SHE LOOKS TO HAVE NOWHERE TO GO! COULD THIS BE IT??!?
Rich Russillo: NO! CANDICE BLAIR QUICKLY ROLLS ONTO THE CHEST OF DONOVAN! SHE INITIATES A COVER!
James Peters: DONOVAN DUKE SLIDES OUT OF THE COVER, AND FLOATS OVER BEHIND CANDICE’S BACK! HE HAS HER BY THE LEGS…AND NOW HE’S SWINGING HER AROUND! THE INVERTED TORNADO WARNING, AND HE DOESN’T LOOK LIKE HE’S STOPPING ANY TIME SOON! WAIT A SECOND, SHE GOT HER HANDS ON THE GROUND! CANDICE BLAIR COUNTERS IT WITH A WHEELBARROW ARMDRAG, LEAVING BOTH COMPETITORS ON THE GROUND!!!! WHICH ONE WILL RECOVER FIRST???!?!?
Rich Russillo: Donovan is the first to start moving, as his arm is twitching! He rolls onto his stomach, and crawls towards Candice! He puts his arm over her- No! She rolls out of the way, much like Donovan did earlier! They’re all out of energy, and are barely moving! Donovan is the first to get to his feet as he stumbles over to Candic- DROP TOE HOLD, SENDING DONOVAN HEAD FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! HE’S OUT COLD! CANDICE JUST HAS TO GET OVER AND COVER HIM, BUT CAN SHE DO THAT??!?! SHE’S STRUGGLING TO GET TO HER FEET, STILL DIZZY FROM BEING SPUN AROUND AT A HIGH SPEED! SHE BARELY STANDS UP AND STUMBLES TOWARDS DONOVAN, NOW FALLING ON TOP OF HIM! THE COVER! ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
THREEEEEE- James Peters: THREE- NO! DONOVAN HAS HIS FOOT ON THE ROPES! THE MATCH CONTINUES! CANDICE BLAIR ROLLS OFF AND TRIES TO REGAIN HER ENERGY!
Rich Russillo: She’s tired and dizzy from the constant spinning earlier on, and there’s no denying she wants this match over this very second! Donovan keeps coming back with offense, and maybe it’s overwhelming her a little bit? Candice is climbing to her feet in the corner, as Donovan does in the very opposite! They both stare at each other from corner to corner…AND THEY SPRINT TOWARDS EACH OTHER! DONOVON WITH A DROPKICK TO THE KNEE, BUT IT’S COUNTERED WITH A LEAPING FOOT STOMP! CANDICE STOMPS DONOVAN INTO THE MAT! CANDICE ISN’T COVERING HIM THOUGH, SHE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THIS IS THE END! SHE GRABS HIS HAIR AND LIFTS HIM UP TO HIS KNEES! SHOOT KICK TO THE CHEST! AND AGAIN! AND ANOTHER! FOUR SHOOT KICKS TO THE CHEST OF DONOVAN DUKE’S CHEST! HE FALLS LIMP ONTO HIS UPPER BODY, BARELY MOVING! NOW CANDICE IS STOMPING ON HIS BACK, JUST BELOW HIS NECK! DONOVAN SEEMS TO BE OUT, BUT CANDICE IS NOT DONE! SHE LIFTS HIM BACK UP BETWEEN HER LEGS AND LEAPS INTO THE AIR FOR THE CANDY DESTROYER!
James Peters: BUT DONOVAN QUICKLY PUSHES HER BACKWARDS, OFF OF HIS SHOULDERS! HE REGAINS HIS POSTURE AND SPINS AROUND FOR A DISCUS LARIAT- NO, BLAIR DUCKS IT! SHE TURNS BACK AROUND AND HITS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! NO, DONOVAN DUCKS THAT! DONOVAN LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND DROPKICKS CANDICE IN THE BACK! SHE STUMBLES FORWARD INTO THE ROPES WITH FORCE AS DUKE STANDS UP…WAIT A SECOND, CANDICE DIDN’T FALL OVER! THE ROPES BROKE HER FALL, KEEPING CANDICE ON HER FEET AFTER THE DROPKICK! SHE REBOUNDS THE ROPES AND HITS A DONOVAN LARIAT OF HER OWN! BOTH OF THE COMPETITORS FALL DOWN TO THE GROUND, USING BRUTAL STRIKE AFTER BRUTAL STRIKE TO TAKE EACH OTHER OUT! WE COULD BE NEARING THE FINISH RIGHT NOW! DONOVAN AND CANDICE HAVE PUT IN GOOD EFFORTS AGAINST EACH OTHER, BUT WHO IS THE ONE WHO IS GOING TO TAKE THE WIN!?!?
Persephone: Boring. Where’s Rex?
James Peters: DONOVAN IS CRAWLING TO THE ROPES, THE FIRST TO MOVE. AFTER THAT DEVASTATING LARIAT, HE’S SHOWING SIGNS OF LIFE! HE REFUSES TO LET CANDICE PUT HIM AWAY! HE NOW USES THE ROPES TO BRING HIMSELF UP!
Rich Russillo: THEY’VE BOTH GIVEN IT THEIR ALL, MOVE AFTER MOVE, COUNTER AFTER COUNTER, PINFALL AFTER PINFALL, AND NEITHER OF THEM WILL GIVE UP! BUT NOW CANDICE BLAIR IS GRABBING THE ROPES, AND PULLING HERSELF UP! THE FIRST TO HER FEET, ON SPAGHETTI LEGS! SHE’S STRUGGLING TO EVEN STAND AT THIS POINT, BUT SHE’S PUSHING FORWARD! DONOVAN IS GRABBING ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE AS HE’S ON HIS KNEES! CANDICE LOOKS AT HER OPPONENT, BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES…BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO THE BACK OF DONOVAN DUKE’S HEAD! HE HAS TO BE OUT OF THIS ONE! HE FALLS TO THE FLOOR AS IF HE WAS A RAGDOLL! CANDICE STILL ISN’T DONE! SHE GRABS DONOVAN BY THE WRIST AND DRAGS HIM TOWARDS THE CORNER! AND NOW SHE’S PICKING HIM UP, AND PLACING HIS HEAD IN BETWEEN HER LEGS! WHAT IS SHE LOOKING FOR??? CANDICE USES HIS LEGS TO CLIMB UP THE TURNBUCKLES, BEFORE FLIPPING FORWARD…CANDY DESTROYER! THE CANADIAN DESTROYER FINALLY CONNECTS, AND DONOVAN DUKE IS SPIKED ON HIS HEAD! COULD THIS BE IT, COULD THE MATCH BE OVER RIGHT HERE?!?!?!?! CANDY BLAIR SLOWLY CRAWLS OVER TO HER OPPONENT, AND ROLLS HIM ONTO HIS BACK! HOOKS THE LEG, INTO THE COVER! ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…CAAAANDIIIIICE BLAAAAAAAAAAAAIR!!!!
(‘Diamonds’ by Beyoncé fades in through the speakers as Candice Blair rolls off of Donovan Duke. She stands up and the referee raises her arm.)
James Peters: What a match! Candice Blair did fantastic, and that was a very impressive win, but let’s not take anything away from Donovan Duke! He put up one hell of a fight, and I can’t wait to see what’s next!
Rich Russillo: He did great, but Candice Blair did better. We can’t take anything away from her either!
(As Candice Blair celebrates on the top rope, with her arms raised in the air, Voltage cuts to commercial.)
(A commercial is shown about Nyquil with Shaker Jones talking about how it’s helped him stop crying before he goes to sleep at night)
(‘Survival’ by Eminem kicked in as Adam Lucas entered the ring with a positive smile on his face. The 22 year old wrestler entered with a decent reaction from the crowd, even if the crowd is more focused on his opponent.)
Bella Braxton: The following is a SINGLES MATCH!!! And it is scheduled for….
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…..Hailing from New York, weighing in at 231 pounds. THE NEXT LEVEL, ADAM LUCAS!!!!!
James Peters: Adam Lucas came in during the last week of Season 13 but it doesn’t mean that he will fight like a new guy!
Rich Russillo: I don’t really understand why he came this late but that doesn’t mean that I should hate him. James Peters: Indeed. Looking at his opponent today, it looks like the management at Voltage is confident with him. They put him against one of the biggest rising star that we have today. This is his biggest chance for now. Honestly, I can’t wait for this match.
Persephone: I can.
(Lucas stood at the middle of the ring, he’s excited as he saw the crowd of EAW getting energetic. His music quickly died down and ‘Spotlight Saviour’ by Iggy Azalea started playing. Darcy May Morgan entered with divided reactions from the crowd. Some people were cheering really hard while the others booed her. Darcy walked with sassy movements while also carrying her Cash In The Vault briefcase.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, Billed from Kent, United Kingdom, weighing in at 130 pounds. SHE IS THE MISS CASH IN THE VAULT, THE LEADING LADY, DARCY MAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY MORGANNNN!!!!!
Rich Russillo: That is a very long introduction by our announcer, but Darcy probably deserved it! She won the Cash In The Vault Ladder Match, beating fan favourites such as Ms. Extreme, Justin Windgate and even Jack Ripley. Darcy is a warrior that is known for being very theatrical and dramatic. Hell, this entrance already felt like a movie!
James Peters: It really does. Darcy knows how to keep up with the old and new, which is why she is still relevant until this day. She knows everything that she is doing and Adam Lucas better pray for luck. This won’t be very easy for him. The newly crowned Miss Cash In The Vault isn’t going to fight gently.
Persephone: So, this is the woman that everyone has been hyping up? Pretty weird. She is not looking interesting, even if she is Mr. Cash In The Vault.
Rich Russillo: Who will bring the victory home? We can only find it out here, on Voltage!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The bell rang and the match just started! Both wrestlers are just staring at each other. They aren’t even going to lock up to start this match. They are walking in circles, waiting for someone to do the first move. As you can see, Darcy May Morgan got that confident look on her eyes, she will do her best to control the match!
Rich Russillo: Remember, mind games matter in a wrestling match.
James Peters: I agree. Now, they both tested out each other with a strength of power. Let’s see who gets the advantage! Of course, Adam Lucas will have the early strength. There might be strong women like Darcy May Morgan out there, but strong men also exist! Adam got Darcy struggling in a headlock, Darcy pushed him, Adam ran to the ropes, a Lariat attempt got ducked by Darcy and Darcy tried to attack Adam with a Jumping Knee Strike but she missed, Adam managed to lift her up, GERMAN SUPL- WAIT DARCY COUNTERED AND SHE CHANGED HER POSITION ON TOP, TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSOR TAKEDOWN BY DARCY MAY MORGAN!
Rich Russillo: Ouch, that is a very sweet counter from Miss Cash In The Vault. She goes for a quick cover, O- of course Adam managed to kick out. Very good early game for Darcy so far, what do you think about it? James Peters: Darcy really showed that she is capable of making anything possible and her performance is impressive so far. She grabbed the face of Adam Lucas but Adam gets the advantage as Darcy’s movement was slow. Adam punches her in the stomach and Darcy let him go. Literally, Adam Lucas just punched The Leading Lady on the stomach. Now, it’s Adam’s turn. He grabbed Darcy by the hair and throw her to the ropes, Darcy went to the ropes, Adam got him, WAIT, DARCY WITH A WHEELBARROW ARM DRAG TO ADAM LUCAS!
Rich Russillo: Oh my god! Well played! However, Darcy knew that it wasn’t enough and she is trying to inflict more damage. DARCY SAW THE DIZZY ADAM LUCAS AND TOOK ADVANTAGE, SHE ROLLED INTO THE ROPES, GOING FRONT AND BACK FOR THAT BEAUTIFUL HANDSPRING ELBOW! Why isn’t Adam Lucas trying to get offense in this match?
James Peters: Darcy went with the cover! ONE, TW- Almost at the two count, Darcy May Morgan nods as she is probably going to do something dangerous next. She yelled at the lying Adam Lucas, asking him to get up! Morgan went into the top rope just waiting for The Next Level to stand up… HE’S STANDING UP, DARCY WITH THE TORNADO DDT!!!!!! SHE GOES FOR THE COVER, IS IT ENOUGH? ONE, TWO, THR- TWO AND A HALF, SHE ALMOST FINISHED IT.
Rich Russillo: Even if most of us are Darcy May Morgan’s supporters, we will have to appreciate the durability of Adam Lucas. He can survive a lot of these moves as if they were nothing!
James Peters: It is just three moves from Darcy so far, I don’t think that it prove anything. Adam will probably try to pull something off after this. Darcy pulled Adam’s hair, she is just mocking him! Darcy May Morgan(off-mic): Is that all you can do, new guy?!
Persephone: Ugh, trying to act like a classy lady.
James Peters: Darcy is not pleased, as she slapped the hell out of Adam Lucas!
Rich Russillo: I feel really bad for Adam Lucas right now. He needs to do some moves.
James Peters: Darcy May Morgan isn’t waiting anymore, she is trying to turn Adam Lucas into a normal local competitor. She grabbed his head, putting it in a lock as she is preparing himself for a bulldog, she got him up, she ran but her target managed to escape as Adam pushed her to the corner! Adam isn’t wasting anybody’s time as he quickly charged, THE STINGER SPLASH! Adam finally getting the upper hand this time! That mockery probably inspired him as he is now all fired up! Adam quickly pull Darcy and sent her to the ropes, HE CAUGHT HER THIS TIME, SITOUT SPINEBUSTER! Adam goes for the cover, ONE, TW- KICK OUT BY DARCY MAY MORGAN! Russillo, what do you think of this sudden change of power?
Rich Russillo: I was shocked! Adam Lucas finally got some move in and it looked like Darcy might be a little bit tired, THIS MIGHT ACTUALLY BE THE REAL PLAN OF ADAM LUCAS!
James Peters: Very smart! However, I don’t think that she is tired. She is probably just lost the advantage because of her lack of focus, and that is caused by confidence. She needs to be careful.
Rich Russillo: AND IT LOOKED LIKE THE TORTURE WASN’T OVER! Adam Lucas grabbed her head, he threw her out of the ring! DARCY IS LYING OUTSIDE! Adam Lucas quickly turned his focus and he ran to the top r- WAIT, HE REFUSED TO GET TO THE TOP ROPE!
James Peters: EVERYONE FORGOT THE ULTIMATE WEAKNESS OF ADAM LUCAS, HE IS NOT A FAN OF CLIMBING! WAIT, THAT WASN’T THE CASE! HE WAS TOO DISTRACTED BY THE FACT THAT THIS SOCIALLY DISTANCED CROWD WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE BIGGEST CROWDS THAT HE HAS COMPETED IN FRONT OF AND DARCY WENT WITH A QUICK ROLLUP! ONE, TWO, THR- HE MANAGED TO KICK OUT AGAIN, AND HE WAS SO FAST HE GETS TO STAND UP FAST AND QUICKLY OWNED THE MATCH AGAIN WITH A BASEMENT DROP KICK TO DARCY MAY MORGAN!
Rich Russillo: Seriously, if this is the biggest crowd that he ever saw, his career is sad. He is probably hyped because of the positive reaction more than the amount of people here.
Persephone: Why would he be excited over small crowds? What a loser.
James Peters: This match has been underwhelming so far for Adam Lucas, he is still trying his best to impress everyone at the crowd. He quickly grabbed Darcy and went with a quick headlock. Darcy tried to escape, but failed as Adam’s hands are strong. Now, with control, Adam pushed Darcy to the corner, she is struggling right now as Adam might pull an upset victory tonight. ADAM LOOKING FOR ANOTHER STINGER SPLASH, HE CHARGED, HE’S GONNA HIT IT, DAMN IT! HE MISSED MORGAN! NOW, IT’S TIME FOR PAYBACK, MORGAN WITH HER OWN SITOUT SPINEBUSTER! MORGAN POSES AS SHE QUICKLY PREPARES HERSELF FOR A SIGNATURE MOVE! Rich Russillo: SHE IS GOING TO PERFORM THE FACE ACHE AS SHE IS WAITING FOR ADAM LUCAS TO GET UP! YEAHHHHH!!!!!
James Peters: Isn’t it too early for someone to perform an iconic signature of their own? I mean, we are just in the middle of the match and she is already planning to end it!
Rich Russillo: She won’t really care even if you wanted the match to go on for hours. If she wants to end it fast, she can do it! You don’t make the decision here, she does because she is a competitor. NOW, SHE IS READY! THE FACE ACH- WAIT ADAM DUCKED! GERMAN SUPLEX! SHE LANDED ON HER NECK! Persephone: OUCH!
James Peters: A very painful maneuver from Adam Lucas. That man really might be the future of EAW! Just look at his performance right now, he is probably beating the winner of Cash In The Vault. Referee: ONE…. TWO…. THR-
James Peters: Kick out by Darcy May Morgan! Both of them still got their energy, they aren’t stopping. Darcy almost lost to someone that has been shown as an impressive rookie now. Even if he came late, he is here for Season 14, let me repeat it again: he is going to be our next big thing if you think about it.
Rich Russillo: We literally said that to every single superstar out there. However, they can’t all be winners. And now Adam Lucas is grabbing her legs, hopefully this isn’t a foot fetish! He is ready for his next move as he is locking in the Sharpshooter! As you can see, Adam needed this win from the beginning. What could be a better way to start a new season than beating the current holder of the Cash In The Vault briefcase?
James Peters: Exactly. Darcy now, struggling, as she is trying to escape the devastating submission! She screams in pain, Gavin Kirkland would’ve love this. Now, Darcy is just refusing to tap out, she will probably regret it. This move can easily end a vulnerable opponent, but it looks like Darcy is not going to be an example to the people who tapped out to it easily. What is she doing now? She is trying to get to the ropes! Can she do it, though? This might require a lot of strength, Adam Lucas is also a heavy wrestler himself, coming in at 231 pounds, let me tell you: that is heavy!
Persephone: WAIT, DAT BIH IS REALLY DOING IT! She gets to crawl while being in the Sharpshooter position, and SHE IS GETTING NEAR THE ROPES! GO DARCY!
James Peters: This is going to be a long crawling scene as she is struggling with the weight of her opponent, Adam Lucas isn’t letting her go! He let go of the submission and dragged her to the middle of the ring!
Rich Russillo: AND DARCY MANAGED TO ROLL HER LEGS OUT AND SHE GETS TO ESCAPE FROM THE HELL THAT THE SHARPSHOOTER BROUGHT! She is just trying to recollect all the energy that she lost after she struggled to escape. Adam Lucas looked at her, and just smiled. What does that mean?
James Peters: When a man smiled at a woman, that must mean one thing. He wants to get her ass, wait not that way. He wants to beat her, that’s what I meant.
Ruch Russillo: A woman beater then.
James Peters: Yes. Wait, wh-
Persephone: You guys are weird.
Rich Russillo: AND NOW, ADAM LUCAS IS RUNNING TO THE ROPES FOR THAT SUICIDE D- WAIT, HE CHANGED HIS PLANS, he went outside of the ring, he is ready to go after Darcy! Darcy is struggling to get up, will she be fast? YES, SHE WAS FAST ENOUGH!!!!! SHE RAN AWAY FROM HIM AND HE IS GOING TO CHASE HER! THIS IS AMAZING!!
James Peters: THEY LITERALLY ARE LOOKING LIKE FAST CARS BECAUSE THIS LOOKED LIKE A REAL RACE, THEY ARE JUST RUNNING AROUND THE RING! Isn’t this actually childish, Russillo?
Persephone: THIS IS… OH MY GOD. I’m disgusted!
James Peters: NOBODY ASKED FOR YOUR OPINIONS, PERSEPHONE!
Rich Russillo: James, how dare you call a wrestling match childish? AND NOW DARCY GOT NOWHERE TO GO, ADAM LUCAS FIGURED IT OUT AND NOW HE IS RUNNING ON THE OPPOSITE WAY TO GET HER, DARCY JUMPED TO THE RING, Adam saw her, and DARCY, TRYING TO EXECUTE THE DIVING DOUBLE KNEES OUT OF NOWHERE!!!! THIS MOVE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ONE OF HER MOST ICONIC SIGNATURE MOVES AND OH, ADAM LUCAS CAUGHT HER. IT LOOKED LIKE THE SHARPSHOOTER REALLY HELPED HIM! BECAUSE OF HOW WEAK HER LEGS ARE RIGHT NOW, IT’S EASIER TO COUNTER HER MOVES, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE MORE STRENGTH! ADAM NOW THREW HER DOWN AGAIN, AND DARCY LANDED ON HER MIDSECTION! She is groaning in pain right now!
James Peters: Adam Lucas threw her back inside. He is pinning her. This might really be an upset!
Referee: ONE!!!!!! TWO!!!!!! THRE-
James Peters: KICKOUT BY DARCY MAY MORGAN! Adam Lucas couldn’t believe it! Darcy still got something left in her, even Adam will feel it and understand! Adam asked the referee, he is angry right now. The Sharpshooter was supposed to keep her legs weak for other pin attempts but it looked like she is going to survive!
Rich Russillo: Adam pulled her hair, he is mad! He gets her up, pushed her without releasing her hands and he gets on with the HIP TOSS! IT LOOKS LIKE HE IS GOING FOR THE CRADLE PILEDRIVER, WAIT, WHATTTTTTT??!!!!!!!!
James Peters: DARCY MAY MORGAN MANAGED TO GET OUT OF IT AND SHE ROLLED HIM OVER FOR A ROLLUP VICTORY!!!!! COULD THIS, REALLY, BE, IT??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ANOTHER ROLLOVER, THIS TIME BY LUCAS!
Referee: ONE!!!!! TWO!!!!! THR-
Rich Russillo: SHE KICKED OUT AND NOW BOTH OF THEM ARE STANDING UP! THEY RAN ONTO EACH OTHER READY FOR A WAR OF MOVES, ADAM LUCAS SHOT FIRST AS HE DROPKICKS DARCY MAY MORGAN! NOW, IT’S TIME FOR ADAM! HE IS GOING TO DO IT, DARCY IS UP AGAIN AND ADAM GOES SPINNING FOR A DISCUS PUNCH AND….
James Peters: DARCY WITH THE TTYN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY ARE BOTH DOWN! SHE PUTS HER HAND ON TOP OF ADAM LUCAS!! DARCY NOW GOES FOR THE PIN…..
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!!! THREEEEEE-
Rich Russillo: THAT WAS WAY TOO CLOSE! ADAM REALLY DID SURVIVE A LOT TOO! That counter was just amazing, Darcy is really trying to end this war on her own accord. Now, both of them are struggling to get up, Darcy went crawling to the bottom left corner and Adam is going to the right, Darcy is on the second rope while Adam is slower.
Persephone: What a weak little boy!
James Peters: Now, Darcy and Adam is just having a staredown contest like they did during the beginning of the match! Adam is grabbing his right cheek right now, that TTYN was very painful.
Rich Russillo: Now they are walking around the ring again, as if this match was restarted! They finally went to the middle of the ring again, ready to start, now Darcy with a chop to Adam’s chest! Sadly, Adam can’t chop a woman’s chest so he goes with a right elbow on her face! Another chop! Another elbow! ANOTHER CHOP! ANOTHER ELBOW! ANOTHER CHOP! ANOTHER AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
James Peters: This time, Darcy got to shield herself from the elbows and she SLAPPED HIM, THIS TIME EVERYONE CAN HEAR IT! ADAM LUCAS NOW HITS HER MIDSECTION! SHE GRABS IT, THIS MIGHT HELP ADAM LUCAS GAIN ADVANTAGE, ADAM ELBOWED HER NON STOP AND NOW, STEP UP ENZUIGIRI! THEY’RE BOTH DOWN FOR THE FINAL BLOW!
Persephone: This boy is…. eh. Eh at best.
James Peters: This match is getting kind of long, don’t you think? This was supposed to be a squash in the eyes of Darcy May Morgan but it looked like Adam Lucas might be victorious this time.
Rich Russillo: We went back in a few minutes and they’re going with the turnbuckle again. What is going to happen now?
Persephone: Don’t know don’t care, can they just end this?
Rich Russillo: WAIT, WHAT THE HELL?!!!!!! ADAM LUCAS QUICKLY RUSHED WITH THAT STINGER SPLASH OUT OF NOWHERE! WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: WHAT, WHAT, WHAT, WHAT, WHAT??!!!!!!!!!!? TTYN FROM DARCY MAY MORGAN OUT OF NOWHERE! OH MY GOD!!!!! DARCY SEIZED THE OPPORTUNITY, SHE IS GOING TO END THIS! DARCY RUNNING TBE ROPES, AND THERE’S THE DON’T DISS DARCY!!! SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!!
Referee: 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!! …………. ……………………..3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: AND THAT WAS IT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! MISS CASH IN THE VAULT JUST WON HER MATCH! First win for this season, very impressive performance from him. However, let’s not forget to appreciate Adam Lucas’s effort. He did try his best so we can’t forget how hard he tried tonight.
(The referee raised Darcy May Morgan’s hand as ‘Spotlight Saviour’ by Iggy Azalea was echoing inside the EAW Performance Center.)
Persephone: I already knew that the boy wasn’t winning in the first place.
Rich Russillo: You still need to give him credit, Persephone. This match just proved that he could be a possible main eventer in the future.
James Peters: Now that the match is over, what did you guys think about it?
Rich Russillo: A decent performance from both wrestlers. They put on a good performance and this match is going to open people’s eyes on Adam Lucas and justify the legitimacy of Darcy May Morgan. There is a reason why she is our Miss Cash In The Vault.
(Fade to commercial break for Ancestry.Com, featuring Dynasty Elitist Andre Walker.)
(As we transition from Darcy and Adam, the camera shifts outside the Performance Center, where suddenly an Emerald Green lowrider, brand new looking 1963 Chevy Impala Convertible pulls up next to a slick black Dodge Challenger, with Its gold rims and sparkling white interior. Driving the Emerald City’s finest mobile, is none other than TLA all decked out in a white suit, plenty of gold hanging from his neck, hat, loafers and no shirt to show off his peanut butter manly mans chest. Accompanying him is none other than five of the Finest Poon Palace haina’s in the world. From Latina’s to sisters, an Asian girl and a vanilla hottie, TLA doesn’t discriminate, he is an equal opportunity Poon employer. To show off, the former World Champion starts the hydraulic show, some fans outside cheer as the car starts to hop up and down, while the girls dance adding to the show. Steroid Dog chilling next to his “El Mero Mero”, he looks over as the door opens to the Challenger, there steps out a hot fit black woman wearing a cheetah body suit and matching heels, grabbing her purse, TLA can’t happen to see just how black, bold and beautiful she is. Lowering his glasses, he continues to stare, slowly stopping the show and shutting down the car, he gets out, his Asian Poon holds on to Steroid Dog as TLA approaches the woman, letting out a whistle….)
TLA: Chinga mi madre, mami, you are so fine, and all I can think about is you joining the Poon Palace with the rest of my haina’s. Look it ‘ere…..
(The woman stops, slowly turning around and taking off her sunglasses revealing herself as Keisha Brown, the girlfriend of none other than Malcolm Jones. TLA is basically undressing her with his eyes, not caring if she was Beyonce or Michelle Obama. Cracking a smirk….)
TLA: I don’t know where you stepping, mami, but why don’t you come ride in my love macheen. Let me give you a taste of the Poon Palace, you finna love this, te prometo.
(Keisha looks absolutely disgusted by what TLA is trying to insinuate. With a scowl on her face, she stands there somewhat shocked and angry at the same time…)
Keisha: Why don’t you fuck off Don Quixote.
TLA: Chales…. Calmate mami, calmate…. Relax. Why are you being so disrespectful with TLA? I don’t just go to any haina and ask them to join the Poon Palace. This is exclusivo…. And exclusive club, be honored, know what I’m saying.
Keisha: You have no idea who I am do you?
TLA: Uh…. Don’t tell me you like Omarosa or some shit. No me digas eso.
Keisha: My name is Kiesha Brown AND Malcolm Jones is my man, so back off!
(TLA raises his arms up, backing up some and trying to defuse the situation in his own TLA way.)
TLA: Hey… hey my bad, me culpa, no te precupe, Listen, its all good. Look, just putting this out there, if you ever get sick of ol’ MJ, just remember mamacita, you got a place in the Poon Place, kay?
(With a roll of the eyes, she turns and storms inside. TLA watches her leave.)
TLA: Orale Keisha…. Orale.
(Cut To Commercial)
(As Voltage comes back from commercial break. Keisha Brown is seen walking backstage; she obviously looks pretty upset and angered after what happened earlier with TLA outside. She continues to walk down the hallway as Malcolm Jones walks out of Captain Charisma’s. He sees her and smiles, ready to get a hug and kiss but notices that she is in no mood, wondering what has her all pissed off.)
Malcolm: What’s up baby, here I’m thinking you’ll be all glad to see me and….
Keisha: It was TLA.
Malcolm: TLA? What the hell he do?
Keisha: I have never been disrespected like that before, MJ. That fucker tried to get me to join his “Poon Palace”, all making me uncomfortable like I’m some piece of meat. Everybody knows that I ain’t no piece of meat. It was sleazy and just nasty. You ain’t gonna let anyone do that to me, right?
Malcolm: Baby you beautiful and….
Keisha: MJ!? That dirty chicano tried to get up all on me!? Your African Queen!?
Malcolm: Baby… baby…. Slow down. First off, don’t get all on me, don’t yell at me, aight? Secondly, I got this, I will talk to TLA, okay?
Keisha: “I…. I….. fine.
Malcolm: Come on.
(Malcolm grabs her hand, making his way down the hall, the couple turn right into TLA who is all smiles, his Poons a few feet behind him.)
Keisha: This mother fuc….
Malcolm: Hold up, I got this baby. TLA, you disrespect my girl outside earlier fam?
TLA: “MJ, amigo, mi hermano, yo, I mean no disrespect but if I see a fine piece of biscocho, Imma try and recruit that shit. I’m a businessman at the end of the day. I know you can understand that because you all about them benjamins too, right?”
(Malcolm holds Keisha back, shaking his head at TLA but before MJ can say anything, TLA butts in again…)
TLA: Amigo, look, I already got “Crip A Cola” in the Poon Palace after cutting this little deal with mi haina, Serena, so lemme make a deal with you. How about this, tengo una idea carnal, you loan me girl for a few nights a week and whatever she make, I split the profits with you, how about that? Here is my card….
(As TLA takes out his business card….)
(TLA’s head almost spins with a huge slap by Keisha, as he turns shaking his head, Malcolm tackles him down! TLA and Malcom start to brawl on the floor as the Poons surround the, screaming, Keisha too starts to yell. Malcolm gets on TLA unleashing fists, then TLA flips Malcolm over, he starts dropping fists on Malcolm, but they keep rolling on the floor when suddenly a bunch of security and officials run in, trying to break things up. Poons screaming, Keisha cheering on her man, the security trying to separate both men until they finally do. TLA pointing at Malcolm, MJ trying to break free, as they try to restore order backstage…..)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A TRIPLE THREAT AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! FROM OKLAHOMA CITY, OK.! WEIGHING IN AT 170 LBS.! HE IS “THE AERIAL BASTARD”…. KOREY GAINES!!!!
(“Middle Finger” by Missio plays throughout the arena as Korey comes walking out with a smug on his face, glad to be back on Voltage. Pointing to the ring, he runs in, slides, then gets to the turnbuckle, looking around before moonsaulting back in and waiting for his opponents.)
James Peters: Korey Gaines back on Voltage and he looks ready, an aerial genius which will be exciting to see against some of the other opponents here tonight.
Rich Russillo: Change of attitude last season, helped him a lot, I am interested to see what he does here against two men that are going to do great things on Voltage.
Persephone: Let’s talk about Rexy and how he opened up the show.
(Korey Gaines stretches as his music fades and is replaced with “Lonely Day” by System of the Down. He turns and looks at the entranceway.)
Bella Braxton: THE SECOND COMPETITOR HAILS FROM RIVERSIDE, CA.! WEIGHING IN AT 180 POUNDS! HE IS “THE GOTHIC MONARCH”….. SHAWN STURGIS!!!!!!!!!
(As Lonely Day blares over the PA, the arena goes dark, flicking bright colored lights and the Crowd in mixed emotions with cheers and boos. Shawn Strugis slowly makes his way down the ramp with a slow walk and creepy demeanor. Makes his way into the ring with a front slide, to one knee. The arena goes dark as the one single light over Sturgis comes on and he slowly raises his head and removes his hood.)
James Peters: He came up short Pain For Pride but Shawn Sturgis is a man on a mission, with some death defying moves. He is one to watch out for, that is for sure and is looking to make up for his loss, tonight could be it.
Persephone: Oh my God, not this guy again. What we are going to see is who is the better loser, right?
Rich Russillo: No, these three men are the future of the EAW and Voltage, it’s not all about Rex. I wish he was on last on the show tonight so you would actually have something to look forward to though we have the most stacked roster right now, you better start calling the show.
(Lonely Day starts to fade as Shawn Sturgis locks eyes with Korey Gaines. “The Path” by Senses Fall starts to play as Jesse Barlow walks out with Hannah Marin. Tipping his sunglasses down, he looks around and starts to make his way toward the ring.)
Bella Braxton: THE FINAL CONTESTANT HAILS FROM HOBOKEN, NJ! WEIGHING IN AT 210 LBS.! ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY HANNAH MARIN! HE IS “THE VIRTUOUS” JESSE BARLOW!!!!!
(Barlow slides into the ring and poses, Hannah stays on the outside and claps before going to the corner. He looks over at the two opponents as the referee gets ready to check on all three.)
James Peters: A new beginning for Barlow, after Colby Sol was decimated by the 420’s in the Draft show. He now has to refocus here on Voltage.
Rich Russillo: He does, and I am sure there are many others who will follow him, losing Sol sucks, but he’s a smart man that can bounce back.
Persephone: Can we please start the match.
(The referee looks at all participants before making the sign for the bell.)
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
(Sturgis, Barlow and Gaines all circle the ring, Barlow quickly drops to the mat and rolls out as Sturgis forearms Gaines, Gaines forearms Sturgis…)
James Peters: Barlow already getting out of dodge and here is Sturgis and Gaines trying to get the upper hand, Sturgis grabs Gaines, an Irish whip to the ropes, Sturgis with a leap frog, Gains runs under, Sturgis with another leap frog, Gaines runs under, Sturgis now goes for a hip toss, but no! Gaines reverses and hip tosses Sturgis! No, he landed on his feet! DROPKICK BY STURGIS! NO! Gaines moves out of the way! Sturgis crashes to the mat and there’s a roll up!
James Peters: STURGIS KICKS OUT! Gaines with a dropkick! This one connects, as Sturgis falls to the mat, he gets back up and Gaines with a Monkey Flip, but NO! Sturgis lands on his feet, he turns and Gains kips up right into a clothesline! Gaines is down but here comes Barlow sliding in the ring from behind, rolling Sturgis up from behind in a School Boy!
Rich Russillo: Sturgis kicks out and now Barlow decides to get into the match, a huge right knocks Sturgis to the mat! Jesse is laying the boots on him! Picking him up, whipping him into the corner, Barlow charges in, Sturgis sidesteps! Jesse puts on the breaks! He turns and hits Jesse with Belly to Belly suplex! He hit it right on the money, turning around and HURRICANRANA BY GAINES ON BARLOW! Jesse was caught by surprise; he springs up Gaines with a NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! WE HAVE A BRIDGE!
Ruch Russillo: JESSE KICKS OUT! Gaines grabs Jesse, forearm by Gaines! Another Forearm! He whips Jesse into the corner! Gaines is ready to explode! No! Sturgis with a huge spear! Gaines was caught with a spear! Sturgis is going for the cover, NO! Jesse Barlow WITH THE ABOLISHER! HIS OWN VERSION OF THE SPEAR! THIS IS OVER AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER!!!
Persephone: “Great”, Gaines breaks up the cover. This match continues, yippee!
James Peters: Aside from the sarcasm from Persephone, these three men are already laying it all on the line early on the match in a fight that has three future Champions in it right now! Gaines saved the match, he kicks Barlow in the gut, locking in a front face lock, running up the ropes for the DDT!!! Jesse flipped over and Hannah looks concerned! Gaines climbs off the top rope, wait Sturgis hits the ropes, Gaines loses his balance landing on his crotch! That looked like it hurt pretty bad! Sturgis is now climbing, hooking Gaines! WAIT! BARLOW IS GETTING BACK UP! HE GETS UNDER THE LEGS OF STURGIS IN A POWERBOMB POSITION! AND…. POWERBOMB AND SUPERPLEX COMBO!!!! THEY LANDED HARD! BARLOW THROWS HIS ARM OVER GAINS FOR THE COVER!!!
Rich Russillo: GAINES WITH A SHOULDER UP! HOW DID GAINES GET OUT OF THAT ALREADY! It is early in the match but these three men are not holding anything back! Jesse picks up Gaines, whipping him into the turnbuckle, now he grabs Sturgis, whipping him into Gaines! Barlow takes a few steps back, he charges in, Sturgis hits him with a huge boot! Barlow staggers back, he shifts and Gaines runs out with a Running flying clothesline! Sturgis grabs Gaines from behind, GERMAN SUPLEX! HE RUNS AGAINST THE ROPES, GAINES GETS UP SLOWLY, CLOTHESLINE OVER THE TOP ROPE! BARLOW SLOWLY GETS UP AS WELL, HE CHARGES AT STURGIS HOW FLIPS BARLOW ON TOP OF GAINES OVER THE TOP ROPE! WHAT IS STURGIS THINKING!? HE RUNS AGAINST THE ROPES, TWISTING CROSSBODY ON GAINES AND BARLOW ON THE OUTSIDE! THE SMALL CROWD HERE IS GOING NUTS!
Crowd: HOLY SH*T! HOLY SH*T! HOLY SH*T!!!!
Persephone: That was impressive, I mean totally awesome, whoooo!!!! Yeah…. Rexy can do all this better.
James Peters: Whatever Persephone. Sturgis sacrificed his body and dropped two men with that twisting crossbody! Sturgis gets up slowly, he grabs Gaines and throws him into thew corner post! Gaines hit hard! He is now grabbing Jesse and rolling him into the ring, Sturgis is climbing up to the top rope, getting up to the very top, he flips on the top of the middle rope into A MOONSAULT! HE HOOKS THE LEG AS THE REFEREE DROPS FOR THE COVER!!!!
James Peters: BARLOW KICKS OUT!!!! STURGIS IS SHOCKED! HE WASTES NO TIME! Grabbing Jesse Barlow, picking him up for a DDT, resting his feet on the second rope, wait…. Hannah gets on the apron; Sturgis drops Jesse and stares at her before she drops down. Sturgis turns around, CHOP BLOCK ON STURGIS BY BARLOW! STURGIS LEG ISN’T SUPPOSED TO BEND THAT WAT! HE MIGHT BE HURT, JESSE RUNS AGAINST THE ROPES… CURB STOMP! THIS COULD BE IT! BARLOW IS GOING FOR A COVER!
Rich Russillo: GAINES BREAKS IT UP! HE CAME OUT OF NOWHERE! HE IS CUT OPEN THOUGH FROM THE STEEL POST! STURGIS TOOK A LOT OUT OF HIM! Barlow gets up, a huge European Uppercut! Gaines staggers back, Jesse with another European uppercut! He falls back some but he forearms him back! Barlow staggers…. Barlow with a huge fist to the face and Gaines falls! Look at Barlow, he is ripping at the cut! Gaines is bleeding more now, and Sturgis is holding his leg, I think he is really hurt here and Barlow is in total control! Barlow starts to stomp Gaines over and over, picking him up by the bloody hair, throwing him into the turnbuckle, then picking up the one legged Sturgis, hooking him for a DDT… NO! STRUGIS BACK BODY DRO…. HIS LEG BUCKLES! HE CAN’T GET BARLOW UP! DDT! Barlow with a huge DDT on Sturgis, he then charges into Gaines, but Gaines HOPS ON THE ROPES, HE FLIPS OVER ON BARLOW INTO A SITTING POWERBOMB HIMSELF! HOOKING BARLOW! HE MAY HAVE HIM!
Persephone: Another save this time by a limping Sturgis!? You have got to be kidding me!?
James Peters: What resiliency by all three men! They are going at it hard and are doing what they can to make a point on their first Voltage as members of this roster! Sturgis and Gaines have been on this brand before, Barlow from Showdown, Gaines recently on Dynasty and all three of these guys know the cameras are on them! Sturgis is trying to get back to his feet, he staggers some, grabbing Barlow, hooking the leg, he is TRYING A TORNADO DDT! NO! HE LANDS HARD ON THE LEG!

Persephone: HOW DID BARLOW KICK OUT OF THAT!?
Rich Russillo: HE KICKED BECAUE NO MATTER WHAT WE THINK OF THIS DAVID KORESH SICKO, HE IS AN EAW ELITISTS THAT IS ALSO A SUPERB ATHLETE! Jesse Barlow is down, Gaines knows that he has the advantage right now, he runs against the ropes, as Sturgis is trying to get up with the help from the ropes, he is to his feet, when Gaines runs at him, STURGIS FLIPS GAINES OVER THE TOP ROPE! HE LANDS ON THE APRON… STURGIS TURNS WITH AN ENZINGUIRI! GAINES IS DOWN ON THE FLOOR! STURGIS STILL IN THIS, JESSE BARLOW IS GETTING UP, STURGIS GRABS JESSE BARLOW…. THE DOA! NO!

James Peters: This is ill advised Rich, but give the man credit! He wants to win and is up on the top rope, Gaines is getting back on the apron…. Sturgis going for broke…..NAIL IN THE COFFIN!!! NO!!! JESSE BARLOW BARELY ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! STURGIS LANDED HARD BUT HERE IS GAINES ON THE TOP ROPE…. THE OKIE DOKIE ON STURGIS!!!! THE 450 SPLASH AND BARLOW IS TRYING TO GET BACK TO HIS KNEES!!!!
(Barlow jumps to the break the count!)
(But is too late!)
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
(Korey Gaines shocked, rolls out of the ring and to the floor, as the referee holds up his hand!)
Bella Braxton: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… KOREY GAINES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Middle Finger” by Missio plays throughout the arena, he gets up, bloody and hurt, pumping the air with his fist. Jesse Barlow on his knees holds up two fingers thinking it was a two count, but it was three. Medical staff come out to check on Sturgis who holds his knee, obviously hurt.)
James Peters: What an incredible fast paced match and these three young men showed they wanted it! In the end Korey Gaines saw the opening and he took it! He went ahead and dropped the Okie Dokie on a hurt Sturgis, we just don’t know at what extent. Jesse Barlow could have really taken advantage but was hurt, and Sturgis was straight up setup perfectly.
Rich Russillo: Sturgis was dumb, he didn’t need to be climbing the ropes, took him some time, Jesse recovered, Sturgis missed but then Korey took advantage of the situation, Gaines with a huge win.
Persephone: Yeah, great match, good job Korey, you get my endorsement for….. whatever…. Yeah.
Rich Russillo: Be careful, Korey gets very attached to women that say nice things about him.
(Korey starts to back up as medical staff continue to check on Sturgis as Jesse with Hannah still in the ring stare down the victorious Korey.)
(We cut back to the backstage area. The camera shows Molly Waters with a microphone in her hands)
Molly Waters: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time… The Revival of Constance Blevins.
(The camera pans over to her side to reveal Constance Blevins, who is already in her ring gear and ready for her upcoming match of the evening)
Molly Waters: Let’s start by addressing the elephant in the room real quick. Pain for Pride was supposed to be a big night for you, it was supposed to be your massive return to the title picture. Yet something went wrong there. Care to comment on that?
Constance Blevins: You got it all wrong, Molly. Pain for Pride was nothing but a minor setback. Sure, it was my big chance to become a Singles Champion but if you think it damaged the Revival you are dead wrong. Sarah Price can run all she wants with her title but at some point the predators are going to catch up with her and rip her to shreds. It’s inevitable. It’s embedded in the very nature of this business. Let’s make no mistake about it, I am one of those predators. The hunt for a title is no different, as it requires timing and most of all, patience. The Revival isn’t going to be put on hold. It’s a process and it’s inevitable.
Molly Waters: Now that Pain for Pride is out of the way, what are your plans for Season 14 and most of all, are you excited to be here on Voltage?
Constance Blevins: “Excited” is a strong word. I wouldn’t say excited. One person was “excited” about me and his name is Matt Daniels. The Voltage commissioner saw something in me that nobody else wants to admit. I have the untapped potential to turn things around and bring the women’s division back to its former glory. I am sick and tired of people like Sienna Jade, Kassidy Heart, Andrea Valentine and Cameron Ella Ava. They are a disgrace for the women’s division. You and I both know that the moment Kassidy Heart will get cleared to compete she will go right after the Answers World Championship and not the Universal Women’s Championship. They all act as if the males titles are on another level of prestige compared to the female ones and this has to change. I will be the spokesperson of said change and handle this matter myself…
(Just as Constance Blevins was about to finish her sentence, Sienna Jade walks in the scene. She has the National Elite Championship on her shoulder and a sarcastic grin on her face. She glares at Constance Blevins for a moment, trying her best to keep her composure and not laugh at her face. )
Sienna Jade: Uhm. Constance, I really think you should keep my name and Kassidy’s name out of your mouth. Just because me and Kassipoo have had some rough time at Pain for Pride, that doesn’t mean I am going to allow her name to be slandered on live TV. The Jaded Hearts are forever and I won’t let you trash talk her in her absence. If you think me and Kassipoo are a stain on the history of women’s wrestling, then maybe it’s time I remind just how successful we have been over the years. I am a Hall of Famer, Constance. That’s something you are never, ever going to be. I am not going to bother you with my list of achievements, I’m sure someone like you who parades herself as the savior of women’s wrestling is very much aware of my resume. Those titles whose legacy you seem so concerned about, I held them and made them prestigious which, again, it’s something you can only yap about on camera and will never, ever be able to do. I have been the EAW Unified Women’s Champion for 140 days. That legacy you talk about, I’ve helped build it over the years. I am the trailblazer here. I am afraid you got our roles all mixed up.
Constance Blevins: Oh, don’t get me wrong, Sienna. I’m very aware of how successful you are. Better yet, I am aware of how many accomplishments this company handed to you for whatever reason. Just like the spoiled brat you are, you only think about your own personal gain. That’s why this Women’s division needs The Revival. It needs ME.
Sienna Jade: Look you dumb fuck. I don’t feel like playing with you right now. My goal last season was to main event my third straight Pain for Pride and compete for the Universal Women’s Championship. Before I could even put a plan into play to get myself there, Chris Elite utilized his Gawd Contract to FORCE me into a match for the National Elite Championship against my best friend. I never asked for it. I tried to get myself out of it. But it happened and I won, and now my goal is to make this championship the premiere title on Voltage. I don’t give a damn if it has dick stains on it from the ghosts of Champions past or not. What I care about is making sure that Sienna Jade is the greatest person to ever hold this belt, and that doesn’t make me any less of a women’s wrestler. In fact, it puts even more focus on the women of this company because I’m continuing the trend of helping open doors for women that weren’t previously accessible to us. THAT is what should really matter to you, and to every other woman in this company.
Constance Blevins: Oh, so impressive. Except for one minor detail. All those accolades you’ve mentioned, you never truly earned them. You are a silver spoon brat who was handed everything she’s ever had in EAW since day one. You don’t impress me one bit. I know I’m better than you and if and when we square off I am going to show you exactly why. You are everything that is wrong with the Women’s division nowadays. Entitlement. Narcissism. You embody both. I am here to cleanse EAW from people like you.
Sienna Jade: People like me huh? You are just a piece of garbage. Get out of my face.
(Sienna walks off and as she does that, she intentionally bumps into Constance Blevins and staggers her. Blevins takes the hit but doesn’t bulge.)
(Molly Waters waits for Sienna Jade to leave, as the camera focuses once again on Constance Blevins. She’s visibly irate)
Constance Blevins: I will revive this women’s division and force these women to respect.
(Molly Waters’ eyes are wide open in terror as if she’s afraid of Constance Blevins and the possibility of her to snap and hit her out of nowhere. Constance Blevins instead walks off with a very intense pace and leaves Molly speechless, as the camera cuts back to ringside)
(Rage by Rico Nasty plays up as Lisa Wren shows up on stage. Lisa looks around for a moment and then makes her way down the ramp)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first from British Columbia, Canada, weighing in at 150 pounds… LISA WREEEEEEEN
Rich Russillo: Well then. I wouldn’t want to be Lisa Wren this season. Imagine a brand as competitive as Voltage is right now. Minerva, Darcy May Morgan, Constance Blevins, Ms. Extreme and that’s just the female side of things! It’s going to be tough for Lisa Wren to crawl her way to the top but…
James Peters: I disagree. Actually, I have the feeling this will be the breakout season for Lisa Wren. She has the chance to share the locker room and the ring with some of the best talent this industry has to offer. All she has to do is to get out there and fight! That’s exactly what we are about to see here tonight! Persephone: Are we really? Urgh…
(Lisa Wren enters the ring as her tune fades out as Revival Remix Outro by Selena Gomez plays up. Constance Blevins shows up on stage to a massive reaction of disdain from the crowd. She doesn’t seem to care though as she walks down the ramp while staring a hole in her opponent Lisa Wren.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent… from Baltimore, Maryland, weighing in at 120 pounds… THE REVIVAL OF CONSTANCE BLEVINS!!!
Rich Russillo: Constance Blevins landed on Voltage after the Draft and she’s looking forward to hitting the ground running. A win here tonight would make her bounce back big time after the setback of Pain for Pride. Lisa Wren should not be underestimated though so it will be interesting to see which one of these two competitors is going to have what it takes to walk out with that big W.
James Peters: True. As Constance Blevins said earlier this evening, the Revival is still very much alive. Constance Blevins has arrived on Voltage and she won’t stop at nothing until her vision of the women’s division is going to come to life.
(Constance Blevins enters the ring but she doesn’t even wait for the timekeeper to ring the bell as she immediately charges towards Lisa Wren)
DING DING DING
Rich Russillo: And here we go! This match finally gets underway as Constance Blevins wastes no time, she goes right after Lisa Wren with a series of stiff shots and punches! Lisa Wren has no choice but to back off to the corner but Constance Blevins doesn’t seem to be letting up! The referee immediately gets in the way in attempt to force a break between the two and reassess the control of the match but Constance doesn’t allow that to happen. Instead she launches Wren to the opposite corner with an Iriship Whip. Constance tries to follow up with a splash but Wren gets out of the way at the very last second. Nobody’s home for Constance Blevins as Lisa Wren goes low with a well placed kick to the shin of The Revival as one half of Heavenly Hell falls down to the canvas hard!
James Peters: This ain’t nothing new to us. Blevins has always been all about intensity and tonight we are witnessing her raw power, although I wouldn’t count Wren out just yet. Matter of fact, Lisa Wren seems to be having the upper hand in the early stages of the match as she stomps Constance multiple times, keeping her grounded to the mat and not allowing her to regroup. Constance Blevins now wisely manages to roll on the apron and create some separation between her and Lisa Wren, Lisa tries to follow up, but Constance Blevins uses the ropes to choke her! Constance just got a hold of Lisa’s neck and then she jumped of the apron, effectively guillotining her with the top rope! Lisa Wren stumbles back in the center of the ring, she’s stunned! And just like that, Constance Blevins has turned things around big time! Persephone: I sincerely wish Constance Blevins would do us all a favor and put Lisa Wren down for good! But no, she seems to be enjoying this one sided torture. Constance now with a running high knee completely and utterly kills Wren! Thanks for coming and thank God this match is over…
Rich Russillo: Constance Blevins with an early pin attempt but Lisa Wren still has a lot of fight left in her, as she kicks out easily at two. I wouldn’t say this match is one sided, Persephone. Lisa Wren was in full control up until the veteran instinct of Blevins kicked in and she managed to turn things around. Now let’s see if she can capitalize on this advantage. Constance is now applying a Dragon Sleeper in the middle of the ring, as she tries to wear Lisa down and not allowing her to regroup. Lisa is in big, big trouble here as she is way too far from the ropes and she can’t force a rope break. She must dig deep and find a way of out this tough predicament! Lisa Wren surely isn’t going to give up just yet as she seems to be willing to fight her way out of this hold! Lisa with a stiff elbow shot to the midsection of Constance Blevins! Ouch, that hurts! Lisa has now found a way to force Blevins on her back, the referee has no choice but to start the count as her shoulders are on the mat!
James Peters: Constance Blevins rolls through easily but Lisa Wren is now free from the Sleeper hold attempt and she nails Blevins with a stiff forearm shot! Lisa is still trying to catch her breath, that submission hold took a lot from her but she’s definitely not done yet. Lisa Wren now with a Running Facebuster! She got all of that! In a matter of seconds, Lisa Wren has somehow found a way to turn this contest around and she now has the upper hand here! Now Wren with the Front Chancery! Looks like we got a little payback here, with Wren now trying to make Blevins go to sleep!
Persephone: The only people who are about to fall asleep are the spectators, myself included. But hey, if this move is going to put Blevins down for good then so be it. But hey, I’m sure she’s going to find a way out of it and prolong this nightmare for many more, interminable minutes….
Rich Russillo: Indeed Constance Blevins refuses to quit, but it’s not easy to get out of this hold as Lisa Wren got it locked in tight. Besides they are both in the middle of the ring so a rope break is definitely not an option. I was not expecting such a technical exchange to start things off here but it looks like all the time and effort Lisa put into training is finally starting to pay off, as she appears to be in control of the bout. Constance Blevins tries to push her towards the ropes but to no avail… WAIT, CONSTANCE BLEVINS JUST SUPLEXED LISA WREN OVER THE TOP OF HER HEAD! I GUESS WE CAN CALL IT NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX RIGHT THERE! THAT’S ONE WAY TO GET OUT OF A FRONT CHANCERY FOR SURE! CONSTANCE WITH THE BRIDGING COVER…
James Peters: And Lisa Wren kicks out at two! Counter after counter these two are truly showcasing their skills here tonight. I must say I’m impressed by both of these new Voltage acquisitions. Blevins now wants to cut this comeback short and take back control of the bout, but Lisa Wren catches her off guard with a well placed kick to the guts. Constance Blevins folds forward, she’s stunned. Lisa Wren runs to the ropes and hops on the middle rope… SOMERSAULT BACKBREAKER BY LISA WREN! AMAZING DISPLAY OF ATHLETICISM THERE! THAT BACK BREAKER OFF THE SPRINGBOARD CERTAINLY CONNECTED TO PERFECTION! COSTANCE BLEVINS IS DOWN AND OUT BUT WREN ISN’T GOING FOR THE KILL JUST YET!
Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren is now stalking Constance Blevins, screaming for her to get back up as she is ready to put this match away… LISA WREN CATCHES CONSTANCE BLEVIS, SHE IS GOING FOR THE INVERTED SUPLEX… WILL THIS BE ENOUGH…. NO, BLEVINS TURNS THINGS AROUND AND CONNECTS WITH A SLING BLADE OF HER OWN… LISA WREN STUMBLES BACK TO HER FEET AND REACHES FOR THE ROPES TO GET BACK UP BUT BLEVINS DOESNT WANT TO LET UP… CONSTANCE BLEVINS CHARGES IN AND GOES FOR A SHINING WIZARD TO THE CORNER! SHE CALLS THAT THE SHINING LIGHT BUT I AM AFRAID THE LIGHTS MIGHT BE OUT FOR HER OPPONENT LISA WREN… CONSTANCE HOOKS BOH LEGS AND GOES FOR THE COVER….
James Peters: KICKOUT BY LISA WREN! That was a Rookie mistake by Lisa, she went for the finisher way too early in the match and Constance made her pay for it big time. Thankfully for her though, Lisa Wren has found a way to survive and kick out of the Shining Light. Constance Blevins is still in control though and doesn’t want to let up. She grabs Lisa Wren by her tights and sends her crashing against the corner post shoulder first! That hurts, ouch… Constance now gets on the apron and grabs Lisa by the hair, Lisa is hanging on the middle rope, still in agony after that rough sequence… Constance Blevins is showing no remorse though as she connects with a series of stiff knee shots to the chest and neck of Lisa Wren, successfully leaving her stunned. And now… what is she doing?
Persephone: Good, Costance Blevins just realized how much of a dumpster fire this match is and she’s walking out of the arena! I can’t help but approve this behavior! Your rock Constance!
Rich Russillo: Uhm guys, I don’t think she’s walking out. Blevins is circling around the ring and she’s now on the other apron as Lisa Wren is still stunned on the middle rope, close enough to the steel post…. Oh no, I don’t like the looks of this… COSTANCE BLEVINS USING THE STEEL POST FOR A TIGER FEINT KICK! INCREDIBLE MOVE BY BLEVINS! LISA WREN COLLAPSES TO THE MAT, SHE IS OUT COLD, ALL BLEVINS HAS TO DO NOW IS TO COVER HER UP FOR THE WIN! AND SHE DOES, THE REFEREE GOES FOR THE COUNT..
James Peters: Another Kickout by Lisa Wren, this time she just barely survives! But she’s definitely still in this match! I can’t believe the tenacity of this young lady! She won’t be able to survive for long though if she doesn’t find a way to turn things around and get some damage in! Constance Blevins has been relentless in her assault, she simply does not care. She’s in this match for a reason and that reason is to win it. Constance now is seizing the opportunity and trying to get Lisa Wren to tap out in her Constance Tap Out, the CTO Gogoplata of hers but she doesn’t seem able to get it fully locked in as Lisa Wren is fighting out of it with all the energy she has left in her body! Lisa Wren somehow manages to flip on her back and she pushes Constance away with her legs, Constance falls down the mat hard but she’s quickly back to her feet… HAIR PULL MAT SLAM BY LISA WREN! LISA WAS JUST A TINY BIT QUICKER IN THAT EXCHANGE AND SHE GOT THE UPPER HAND BEFORE CONSTANCE BLEVINS COULD CAPITALIZE ON IT!
Rich Russillo: I can’t believe this! Lisa Wren might be close to the upset! Imagine if she pins Blevins tonight! It would be a career defining moment for her! Lisa Wren is now up on her feet once more, Constance Blevins might be out and this is the perfect opportunity to get the advantage and put the match away for good. Lisa Wren is pulling Constance up by her hair, the referee doesn’t likes it and screams for her to stop and let go of the hair. Lisa Wren obliges but she immediately blasts Blevins with a stiff shot to the face as she flips around. Her back is turned and Lisa Wren leaps in the air… REVERSE HURRICANRANA….. NO CONSTANCE BLEVINS HAD THAT MOVE SCOUTED AND SHE SIMPLY FELL TO THE MAT IN AN ELECTRIC CHAIR. SUCCESSFULLY BRINGING WREN DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH HER! WHAT A MASSIVE COUNTER BY THE REVIVAL OF CONSTANCE BLEVINS
Persephone: Does it mean they are both dead? Please tell me they are!
James Peters: Not quite! Lisa Wren is trying to crawl towards the rope and get back to her feet but Constance Blevins is up first and she’s going to get the most of this situation of control… Blevins is now waiting for Lisa Wren to turn around and she does… kick to guts of Wren! Constance Blevins lifts her up on her shoulders…. NO LISA WREN IS FIGHTING OUT OF IT! SHE KNOWS THE END IS NEAR, IF CONSTANCE HITS HER FINAL EXPIRATION THIS IS OVER! NO, SHE IS FIGHTING OUT OF IT WITH A SERIES OF SHOTS TO THE HEAD! STIFF ELBOWS BY LISA WREN WHO BREAKS FREE AND FALLS DOWN TO THE MAT. SHE GRABS BLEVINS BY THE HAIR AND TRIES TO SLAM HER DOWN TO THE MAT… NO, BLEVINS WITH A HUGE SLAP ACROSS THE FACE OF LISA WREN!
Rich Russillo: LISA WREN STUMBLES BACK… CONSTANCE BLEVINS GOES FOR THE RUNNING KNEE STRIKE! NO, WREN SIDE STEPS HER AT THE VERY LAST MILLISECOND! THE ABOLISHMENT DOES NOT CONNECT AS CONSTANCE BLEVINS REBOUNDS OF THE ROPES… THIS TIME WREN GOT HER BY THE HAIR AND SHE SLAMS HER DOWN TO THE CANVAS HARD! LISA IS NOT DONE YET, NOT BY A LONGSHOT AS SHE WANTS TO PUT THIS MATCH AWAY FROM GOOD… WHEELBARROW FULL NELSON SUPLEX ON CONSTANCE BLEVINS! THIS HAS GOT TO BE IT, I THINK BLEVINS IS OUT COLD…
James Peters: KICKOUT BY BLEVINS! AAAAAAAARGH! THAT WAS TOO CLOSE! I THOUGHT THAT WAS IT… LISA WREN IS FREAKING OUT, SHE IS LASHING OUT AT THE REFEREE BUT HE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS! LISA WREN NOW CALMS DOWN AND PATIENTLY WAITS FOR BLEVINS TO GET BACK UP TO HER FEET…. BLEVINS IS UP! LISA WREN LEAPS IN THE AIR YET AGAIN, SHE GOES FOR THE REVERSE HURRICANRANA ONE MORE TIME… NO, BLEVINS HAS HER! BLEVINS STOPS HER RIGHT IN HER TRACKS JUST A SECOND BEFORE SHE COULD SLAM HER DOWN TO THE MAT IN THE HURRICANRANA! NOW LISA WREN IS STUCK ON TOP OF CONSTANCE BLEVINS! IMPRESSIVE SHOW OF RAW POWER AS BLEVINS TRANSITIONS LISA WREN INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION… FINAL EXPIRATION! THIS IS IT! LISA WREN GOT CAUGHT….
(DING DING DING)
(Revival Outro Remix by Selena Gomez blasts through the speakers as Constance Blevins slowly gets back to her knees)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen here is your winner… THE REVIVAL OF CONSTANCE BLEVINS!
Rich Russillo: WHAT. A. MATCH. I am shocked. That was an incredible back and force bout. In the end, one critical counter allowed Constance Blevins to hit her finisher and bring this much needed win home with her. The Revival has arrived to Voltage!
Persephone: Oh no, does that mean she’s going to be around next week as well?
James Peters: Constance Blevins will be here for the whole season!
Persephone: WHAT?!?! OH NO!
James Peters: Blevins did what she said she was going to do earlier this week. She wanted to bounce back from her Pain for Pride setback and she did just that. Now let’s see if she’s going to be able to keep the momentum going forward!
(The camera fades to outside of the performance center. Paparazzi are surrounding the performance center, with everyone waiting for a certain Elitists arrival. A red carpet has been rolled out, and soon a limo arrives at the performance center, causing all of the paparazzi to surround it. The door doesn’t even open, but the cameras continue flashing and a bunch of screaming and cheering still goes on.)
Paparazzi: SOSA!!!!! SOSA!!!!
Women: WE LOVE SOSA!!!!!
(The paparazzi continue cheering in anticipation of the long awaited arrival of SOSA Henderson. As the door of the limo opens, the paparazzi surrounds him even further, with women practically throwing themselves at him, until they soon realize it isn’t who they think it is. Instead, it’s Ahren Fournier! Ahren flashes his million dollar smile at the camera, obviously assuming the hype is for him as he is a former model, a star in his own right that’s won multiple titles such as the EAW and Interwire Championships, and a newly minted Hall of Famer. However, the cameras stop, the women stop screaming, and everyone is utterly disappointed, causing a pretty awkward staredown.)
Ahren Fournier: Um…. What the fuck??? Why did you stop? I’m the GOAT it doesn’t get any better than this! The fuck were you expecting??
(After a few seconds, one of the women in the crowd begins to speak up.)
Woman: We’re waiting for SOSA! Can you move along please?
(Ahren sighs and storms off, clearly insulted that the fans and paparazzi weren’t going crazy because of him. As he leaves though, a second limo arrives, and as the crowd looks towards it, out comes SOSA Henderson. The fans immediately go after him, swarming him with pictures, videos, and other fans screaming, crying and cheering for the former New Breed Majesty as Voltage goes to a commercial break.)
(Commercial for Corona with TLA, or at least everything that was filmed for the commercial a few months ago. After the Coronavirus started spreading the commercial was dropped. I don’t know how this even aired on TV.)
(Voltage fades back to inside of the Performance Center, and after a few seconds ‘Faneto’ by Chief Keef hits. The crowd gives a large mixed reaction, as many people still dislike SOSA, but it’s hard to deny the starpower the man has to many, which is why he’s been able to become the celebrity he is now. SOSA has a microphone in his hand as he begins walking down the ramp, and as soon as he enters the ring he begins to speak.)
James Peters: Here he comes! Former New Breed Champion SOSA Henderson!
Rich Russillo: This man had a great performance at Pain for Pride in the Cash in the Vault ladder match, but ultimately he came up short. I’m interested in seeing what he has to say right now.
James Peters: So am I.
SOSA Henderson: Ayo, what’s up Newark!? Y’all good?
(The people in attendance can’t help but cheer, especially at the mention of their hometown.)
SOSA Henderson: Ight, but look. I bet all of y’all already know why I’m out here. I lost. At Pain for Pride I competed against seven other people for the Cash in the Vault briefcase, and I lost. Darcy May Morgan is the Cash in the Vault briefcase holder, and SOSA isn’t. Now I came up short, but don’t get it twisted. Even if I lost at Pain for Pride there ain’t a single star brighter than me and that’s a fact. I AM Voltage now, this is my show! I got all the makings of a GOAT. I got the talent, the charisma, the athletic ability, and when it’s all said and done I’m gonna go down as THE GREATEST of all time. I got the right people backing me and I definitely got the right mindset, and I’m going to make sure nobody is able to deny me this season. I don’t know about y’all, but I see Championship gold in my future. Whether it be the National Elite Championship or even the EAW Championship, SOSA Henderson will be Champion again! The New Breed Championship was not my ceiling and I more than proved it this year against the best of the best over on Dynasty. Now I’m comin’ for the gold, and I will get what I want. Soon my Pain for Pride loss will be far behind me as I’ll be at the top of the mountain, and when that happens, everybody will love S-
(‘Starboy’ by the Weeknd hits, and the crowd begins booing, but Ahren Fournier clearly doesn’t care much as he looks annoyed walking to the stage. Ahren has a microphone in his hand already, and he makes his way down to the ring, before entering it. He and SOSA have a brief staredown as Ahren steps in front of him, and after a few seconds Ahren raises his microphone before speaking.)
Ahren Fournier: Meh. I don’t see it.
SOSA Henderson: See what?
Ahren Fournier: The appeal. I don’t get it. What did the Bitches and the Paparazzi see in you that they didn’t see in me? I’m Ahren Fournier! I’m a former EAW Champion! I was just inducted into the Hall of Fame for fuck sake! And you’re…. SOSA Henderson I guess. Ew. By the way I’m the only GOAT here thank you very much. You don’t deserve a title like “the GOAT”, and neither did your mentor HBB. HBB was actually pretty trash to be honest, it must suck knowing that fraud is the only reason you have a wrestling career. You basically owe your life to HBB of all people and his career ended after being pinned by some random rookie. Yeah you’re probably gonna follow in his footsteps. You’re already pretty inconsistent, just a matter of time till some nobody like… I don’t know… Daniel Duke, or whatever the hell his name is, ends yours. Voltage can’t be your show, I’m here! I have more starpower in my pinky than you have in your entire body, and I have more raw natural talent on my worst day than your mentor has had in his entire career.
(The crowd immediately starts booing, and SOSA Henderson can’t help but smirk after everything Ahren said to him, as he’s clearly amused by him.)
James Peters (quietly): I think Ahren meant Donovan Duke.
Rich Russillo: Not the time. Clearly Ahren seems a bit frustrated with what happened outside of the PC.
(The crowd’s boos slowly begin to die down, allowing SOSA to speak.)
SOSA Henderson: You know what Ahren? You’re funny. You a funny guy. I don’t know if you got memory loss or what though, because how did you just so happen to forget being HBB’s bitch all throughout 2018?
(The crowd begins cheering after hearing that, but Ahren immediately takes off the sunglasses he was wearing before getting closer to SOSA’s face, clearly feeling insulted and annoyed, which prompts SOSA to punch him across the jaw.)
James Peters: SOSA JUST PUNCHED AHREN IN THE FACE! SOSA JUST TOOK AHREN TO THE MATCH WITH A PUNCH WHILE THE MICROPHONE WAS IN HIS HAND! SOSA clearly didn’t like Ahren getting in his face like that, that’s one way to solve a problem quickly!
Rich Russillo: Wait, but what’s SOSA doing? He’s taking out… A phone?
(Ahren is on the mat holding his jaw in pain, meanwhile SOSA takes his phone out and takes a quick picture of him while he’s still clearly hurt.)
James Peters: Wow!
SOSA Henderson: Now that’s a close up, bitch.
(‘Faneto’ hits as the crowd begins cheering for SOSA, clearly taking his side rather than Ahren’s here, which goes to show just how much they don’t like him.)
Rich Russillo: Ahren’s not gonna like that one.
Persephone: Please just go away already SOSA I’m tired of sitting through this.
(‘Faneto’ continues playing, and SOSA exits the ring laughing to himself while putting away his phone. The crowd is still cheering, meanwhile Ahren Fournier is in the ring, furious over what just went down, but still holding his jaw after being hit with the microphone. As SOSA makes his way up the ramp, Voltage fades to a commercial break.)
(The camera cuts to a commercial for the upcoming Voltage Free Per View Bloodsport)
(Voltage fades back to the performance center, and inside the ring stands Bella Braxton ready to go and get the match announcements underway as the lights dim in the arena. Smoke bellows up around the entrance, lit by red and purple lights. The ominous beat of Marilyn Manson’s ‘Cry Little Sister’ starts to play.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from The Lake of Fire, weighing in at 140 pounds… KAAAAASSSSSEEEEYYYY KAAAAOOOOSSSS!!!
(Kasey Kaos walks through the curtain, to a huge ovation from the crowd. Her eyes are wide, and she has a big smile on her face. She leans forward at the top of the aisle, her arms are stretched towards the ring, with her fingers spread wide. She stands up straight and pulls her arms back to a Jesus-esque pose, before dropping to her knees, and laughing loudly.)
Persephone: How exactly did we end up with this weirdo again?
James Peters: The Draft! And considering the potential that Kasey has shown since arriving, Captain Charisma made a stellar pick! I’ve got no doubt that with what she can bring to the table, she can be a real standout this season!
(She falls forward onto all-fours and starts to crawl down the ramp, towards the nearest cameraman. Reaching his feet, she stands up, and pulls the camera close to her face – her eyes wide, and head tiled to the left, she laughs and smiles into it. She reaches the bottom of the ramp, crawls into the ring, and stops when she reaches the middle. She pushes herself back onto her knees and falls back, arms over her head, unleashing a loud scream. Bella noticeably keeps her distance before “Overlord” by Suicide Silence takes over.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent, making his way to the ring, from Huntington Beach, California, weighing in at 213 pounds… SHAAAAANNNNE GAAAAATTTTEEEEESSS!!!
(As the lights fade to black 4 spotlights on the ground appear they slowly begin to transition to red. As the last light on the ground near the titantron turns to red The Arena lights go Blood red and white fog appears on the stage. Shane Gates Walks out in a sleeveless black hooded trench coat with the words NATURAL BORN KILLER engraved on the back with blood stains dripping on the bottom of the word.)
Rich Russillo: Shane Gates has said that he’s a man on a mission and said this week that he’s ready to show how much he’s changed, how much more of a different monster he’s become!
James Peters: And went as far as saying he’s planning on forcing Kasey Kaos to know what it means to truly suffer and be faced with punishment when in the ring with him! But I get the feeling Kasey’s willing to meet him head-on on that front and I can’t wait to see how this goes!
(Shane walks to the ring and after he enters he takes off the hood with a cold emotionless stare to the camera. Removing his trench coat and getting it out the ring to then turning his icy gaze to Kasey, the match gets underway!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Persephone: I’d just like to start this off by making it clear that I don’t think I’ve literally ever seen two uglier creatures! Seriously, who’s that bitch in the Joker costume even doing this impression of hers for?! I’m honestly so uncomfortable just looking at that thing move in the ring right now!
James Peters: While you’re worried about aesthetics, these two waste no time as they get right to rushing at each other to lock up but Kasey Kaos is quick to fake Shane out and transition right into a running dropkick that sent him barreling back into the corner!
Rich Russillo: And Shane tries to go pulling himself up but Kasey is right on him with a series stomps and kicks, working to neutralize her larger opponent! She’s yet to let up but finally the referee asserts himself and starts a count while she keeps going! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI- But she backs away just it can finish and she’s laughing about the referee admonishing her for blatantly ignoring his calls! With the way they talked about wanting to inflict harm on each other in this one, I don’t think either of them would mind the rules going out the window – but maybe what they can show within the rules can make them just as dangerous to each other and potentially everyone else!
Persephone: Wish they’d get right to it and end this! Or just go ahead and literally try to end each other while they’re at it so we can be over with it already!
James Peters: Kasey tries to whip Shane out the corner, he counters and pulls her right into a short-arm clothesline to take her right off her feet! And he does it again! And again! And again! Until he flings her across the ring with an arm drag and Kasey uses the ropes to pull herself up after being repeatedly floored with no remorse, and Shane comes charging and LOOK! THAT RUNNING BIG BOOT SENDS KASEY OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE!!
Rich Russillo: Shane wastes no time following out after her and he looks to wrangle her up into a German suplex! That thud on the ground couldn’t have sounded more sick but it’s got to be exactly what Shane wanted! He goes to drag her up once more for another suplex but Kasey wriggles back down to her feet to stall him! But Shane hits her with a knee to her exposed stomach and adjusts his hold, lifting her back into the air seemingly to drop her onto the apron but Kasey goes up and over, landing on her feet on the apron and using the ropes to keep herself up on her feet as she beautifully escapes the hold :wow:!! Shane turns around and comes to be met with a running dropkick right off the apron from Kasey that hits him right in the chest, AND HE GOES FLYING BACK INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!!
James Peters: AND THE BACK OF HIS HEAD HITS RIGHT OFF THAT STEEL!! Kasey hauls him up to slam his face off the apron before shoving him back inside and she turns him over into a pin!
James Peters: But Shane isn’t done! He gets his shoulder up with his arm shooting off the mat into the air and Kasey takes of hold his wrist, pulling it around his neck and clutching the other to pull him up into a seated position for a straight jacket surfboard with her knee digging into his back! I don’t think Shane’s gonna quit but with the way Kasey’s starting to repeatedly drive her knee against his spine, she’s definitely aiming to at least wear him down!
Rich Russillo: That hit he took on the steps could be helping Kasey to set up all kinds of things; it might be thought that she’s crazy as hell but she can clearly be just as calculated! She’s targeted that presumed weak spot and she’s not gonna let up! Kasey now- NO! Shane is shifting his position on the mat and he twists around, working out the submission to throw Kasey off him but the persistent Kasey is coming right back at him just to get lifted off her feet with a back body drop! She comes crashing down but goes trying to get up to her feet only to get struck to the mat with a spinning heel kick!
Persephone: And for whatever reason this match is actually still going on now! Shane doesn’t even try to go for a pin after that because he either isn’t done or he just loves to make me suffer through this, and he gets Kasey off the mat to lift her up over his shoulder to get a running start when he launches her off like a dart head-first right into the top turnbuckle!
James Peters: But the resilient Kasey is already getting back up after collapsing in a heap immediately afterward but Shane isn’t about to let her do much more than that! He’s quick to wrap her up her from behind and throw her to the mat with a german suplex, coming awfully to having Kasey land on the back of her neck and head! Shane gets her over to the bottom rope while she’s still down and he throws her head over the bottom rope! And we find out what he’s got planned as he steps out onto the apron and guillotines Kasey’s head with a leg drop!
Rich Russillo: Kasey rolls toward the middle of the ring but Shane is already back in, running and dropping down directly on top of her with a senton for the a cover!
Persephone: Kasey kicks out and this point I’m really wishing she hadn’t! But here goes Shane trying to ruin her face even more than she already has on her own as he starts raining down with punch after punch! And now he’s got a handful of hair when he pulls her up closer and starts throwing forearm shots!
Rich Russillo: BUT KASEY SLAPS SHANE RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE! Shane is stunned almost for a moment but look at that! That’s one sick smile on Kasey’s face, practically taunting him into inflicting more pain and he goes to do just as he reels back for another punch!
James Peters: MISSED! KASEY EVADES IT AND TAKES THE CHANCE TO RAKE HIS EYES BEFORE SHE RAISES UP TO HIT A HEADBUTT TO GET OUT FROM UNDER HIM!! Shane is still showing some concern for his eyes but Kasey shows no remorse for her actions as she hits an uppercut while working to bring him to his feet! She strikes him with another on his way up and starts repaying him for all those punches, hitting one after the other to have him stumbling back against the ropes! Kasey goes to whip him across the ring but Shane wraps his arm around the top rope and he refuses to budge!
Rich Russillo: But that isn’t gonna keep Kasey from trying! She works to try to pull him forward again but Shane still won’t give in! What he does do though is pull her in and gives her a kick to the gut to double her over before lifting her up overhead in a gorilla press showing off his impressive strength! Just before Kasey can start fighting her way out Shane heads right over to the ropes AND HE LETS HER DROP RIGHT ACROSE THE TOP ROPE! HER HEAD AND NECK SNAPPING OFF THE TIGHTLY DRAWN RING ROPE AND SHANE ISN’T STOPPING THERE AS HE GETS HER UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND WITH A HOLD ON HER LEGS, HE FALLS BACK TO CATAPULT HER UP RIGHT INTO IT!
OOOONNNNEEEE!!!! TTTWWWOOOOO!!! TTTTHHHRRRREEEE!!!
James Peters: But that’s just not gonna be enough to put Kasey away! But somehow I don’t think he minds! Kasey has shown a lot of promise in EAW already and he surely has to know there’s no doubt that defeating her would be a step in the right direction to get things going here on Voltage! He’s coming down on with stomp after stomp leaving her with nowhere to go! But with his hands on the top rope for leverage the referee has to intervene with a count that backs him away but he goes right back on the attack to come down on her again but Kasey rolls out to the apron! Shane trying to kick her through the ropes now but she catches his leg and pulls him forward to rock him with forearm smash!
Persephone: And now instead of getting back into the ring and staying in control now that he’s down, she goes climbing the turnbuckles! Like, hello?! Do your freaking job and end this already, end my suffering!
James Peter: You know, one day, she’s gonna hear you and take that to mean it literally but you know what? Honestly, we-
Rich Russillo: -couldn’t possibly afford to lose you, Persephone! I couldn’t even begin to imagine being out here calling commentary with anyone else!
James Peters: :skip:
Rich Russillo: But it turns out that what Kasey’s got in mind is going up top as Shane works to get back to his feet and once he’s up, Kasey dives off- NO! SHANE CATCHES HER MID-AIR AND HE SWINGS HER OVER HIS SHOULDER AGAIN! BUT KASEY PUSHES OFF THIS TIME AS HE WENT RUNNING INTO THE CORNER AND SHANE COLLIDES WITH THE TURNBUCKLES! KASEY NOW WITH A RUSSIAN LEGSWEEP TO TAKE HIM DOWN AND AS HE TURNS OVER TO GET UP KASEY’S ALREADY ON HIM WITH A SWINGING NECKBREAKER!
James Peters: And just like that Kasey’s back in control! Shane is still down and Kasey isn’t gonna give him the opportunity to get back up just yet as she starts raining down on him with elbow drop after elbow drop! She’s not even getting all the way back to her feet before she’s coming down on his neck and head, and you can just sense that Kasey knows she’s got to stay in control now! But Shane manages to shove her away for a moment and Kasey doesn’t look to let up as she comes right back him, just take a punch to the gut!
Rich Russillo: Shane fights his way back up to his feet after catching Kasey with her guard down and he goes to swing just to miss! Kasey with a dropkick to his knee and she takes his leg right out from under him unexpectedly, bringing him to kneel and Kasey bounding off the ropes AND CHERRY BOMB!!!! THE SHINING WIZARD STRIKES AS PLANNED AS SHANE GATES GOES FALLING OVER WITH KASEY FALLING OVER ONTO HIM INTO A PIN!!!!
OOOONNNNEEEE!!!! TTTTWWWWOOOOO!!!! TTTTHHHHRRRREEEE!!!!
Persephone: Uggghhhhh! Shane kicks out and honestly I’m just completely over this! I just want to see Rex back out here again! Like, I don’t think we really got to take in just how good he looked with the EAW World Championship since I don’t think he really got enough screen time earlier! It’d be a lot better than what we’re being subjected to now anyway, because I know I didn’t ask to be a witness to how she literally crawled over Shane and licked his face! Gross! And now she’s trying to pull him up into a some kind of inverted DDT that I’m sure isn’t gonna be nearly as good as anything Rex could do!
James Peters: And it seems we’ll never get to find out as she can’t hit it! Having taken too much time toying with him while he was down, Shane fights his way out of Vae Victis and is able to push Kasey off but manages to hit a pele kick in doing so! Kasey manages to stay up on her feet, however, and Shane makes his way over to get his hands on her by ducking under a wildly swung clothesline and he gets Kasey off her feet into a gutbuster drop over his knee, buying himself some time! Plucking Kasey up by her hair, Shane hurls her across the ring and she crashes down to the mat before he stalks his way over to go do it again! But Kasey’s courageous and bold enough to actually be trying to get up under her own power!
Rich Russillo: Kasey makes it up and she tries charging at Shane BUT SHE GETS CAUGHT! SHANE LIFTS HER UP AND SPINS THEM AROUND TO PLANT KASEY WITH A SPINEBUSTER AND HE POPS UP!!! SUPERKICK!!!! KILLSHOT TO KASEY AND GATES THROWS HIMSELF DOWN FOR THE COVER!!!
OOOOONNNNNEEEEE!!! TTTTTWWWWOOOO!!! TTTTHHHHRRRREEEEEE!!!!!
James Peters: KASEY KAOS KICKS OUT!!! There’s a glare on the face of Shane Gates as he looks down at Kasey wondering what it’ll take to keep her down! These two have given everything they can to each other so far in a back and forth contest, and I’m sure Shane is looking to finish this one! He hauls Kasey up and lifts her up looking for a powerbomb but Kasey is trying to fight out of it! Hammering away at the top of his head, Kasey gets them into a corner and Gates ultimately shoves her off with Kasey ending up on the turnbuckles! She throws a back kick to send Gates forward while climbing down and turns to find him coming at her!
Rich Russillo: BUT SHANE GOES THROUGH THE TURNBUCKLES AND HITS SHOULDER-FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST!!! Kasey slipped out the way and now she’s going out to the apron to take him into an arm wringer as he’s still in the turnbuckles and pulls down on it upon jumping off the apron while slamming it into the post! Gates rolls himself back into the ring favoring his shoulder and Kasey’s extra damage couldn’t have helped that at all! Kasey is all smiles as Shane is seated against the ropes and seemingly right where she wants him! And she goes right after him without another thought- SHANE PULLS HER DOWN AGAINST THE MIDDLE ROPE! HE GETS TO HIS FEET AND PULLS HER IN LOOKING FOR A BRAINBUSTER!
Persephone: But Kasey still has enough wherewithal to land enough shots to the shoulder that’d been taken into the ring post moments ago to get back down and it must’ve hurt worse than it looked because it seems to give out, kind of like how I hope one of them in the ring gives out so we can get a move on! Kasey keeps a hold around Shane’s neck after coming down on her feet and fires off with a series of shots before trying to fall back into a DDT but Shane slips out and puts all of his weight into stomping down on her chest!
James Peters: Gates reaches down to bring her up and tuck her head between his legs! And he reaches forward to lock her up and goes to lift her into the air! THE “DEAD MAN” INVERTED POWERSLAM-
Rich Russillo: DOES NOT CONNECT! KASEY SLIPPED DOWN BEHIND HIM AND STOMPED THE ABSOLUTE HELL OUT OF THE BACK OF HIS KNEE TO BRING HIM TO KNEEL!! AND NOW SHE’S REPEATEDLY ELBOWING THAT TARGETED SHOULDER LIKE HER LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!!! KASEY REACHES AROUND HIS HEAD WITH AN ARM TRAPPED BEFORE FALLING BACK INTO A COMBINED BODYSCISSORS!!!
James Peters: KAOS REIGNS!!! KASEY HAS SHANE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING WITH SEEMINGLY ONLY ONE GOOD ARM ON HIM AND I’M NOT SURE HE’S GOT ANYWHERE TO GO!!!
Persephone: TAP OUT PLEASE!!!!!
Rich Russillo: HE’S TRYING TO FIND A WAY OUT BUT I DON’T THINK HE’LL MAKE IT TO THE ROPES!! SHANE IS STRUGGLING TO A COUNTER OR A BREAK EVEN AS THERE’S NO DOUBT THAT HE’S FIGHTING WITH EVERYTHING HE CAN BUT KASEY IT LOCKED IN TIGHT AND- LOOK HE’S FADING!!! HE’S TAKEN SIGNIFICANT HITS TO THE HEAD THROUGHOUT THE MATCH AND SHE’S GONNA PUT HIM TO SLEEP!! SHE LEFT SHANE ULTIMATELY WITH NO OTHER CHOICE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Cry Little Sister” by Marilyn Manson hits and Kasey Kaos rises to her feet with a triumphant victory to her name here on Voltage!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. KAAAAASSSSSEEEEEYYYY KAAAAOOOOOSSSS!!!!
Persephone: And it’s over! :blessed:
James Peters: But it’s only just the beginning as Kasey Kaos can say she got her start here as a Voltage Elitist with a win, and in a match where she and Shane pushed one another to fight for this victory!
Rich Russillo: Absolutely! Things got precarious for both of them at times and it was clear that they both weren’t ready to back down until one of them was literally forced too, and it just so happened that Kasey was more than willing to be the one to go and take it there!
(Kasey wears a satisfied smirk looking down at her fallen opponent, the referee being sure to keep her at bay however before she exits from the ring and heads up the ramp, seemingly pleased with her victory.)
(We fade back to the backstage area. Candice Blair is see posing for a hotshot as Ms. Extreme looks on, visibly bored with the whole situation. The photographers are giving Candice detailed instructions on how to pose as she seems to be enjoying the photo shoot)
Photographer: A little bit to the left… and smile!
(The flashes from the cameras light up the scene as Ms. Extreme lets out a huge “sigh” of boredom and frustration)
Candice Blair: See, there’s one thing I will never understand about people like SOSA Henderson and Ahren Fournier. Those two keep arguing about whether or not they are going to be the face of this company, but let’s be reasonable here. Neither one of the two is as marketable as me, Candice Blair. I am the very definition of cover girl. My face should be on every single piece of merchandise.
(Candice Blair poses one more time as the photographer crouches to get in position. Once again, we can hear the clicks of the camera and see the flashes.)
Ms. Extreme: It really looks like you’ve moved on from your Pain for Pride loss which is quite convenient. I’m glad to see it didn’t phase you. Confidence surely is one of your biggest assets and it would be a shame to see you humbled by someone else. Let alone by Veena Adams, out of all people.
Candice Blair: You don’t get it, but I’ll give you a pass since you are my favorite sister. The Draft is a fresh start for everyone, myself included. Pain for Pride is in the past, nobody cares about what happened there anymore. Give it a couple of weeks and even Veena Adams herself is going to forget about the match we had. My one and only focus is the future and mine looks brighter than ever. I’m here on Voltage with my sister Camille and I’m looking forward to getting my name out there. I will be on Bloodsport, no doubt about it. I am the Hot Commodity for a reason and Voltage will realise how much of an asset I am going to be for this brand. And speaking of the future, Veena’s looks awful. She is stuck on Dynasty and it really looks like she’s going to get destroyed by the talent there. She is going to stand zero chances against Serena Bennett or Andrea Valentine. I sincerely hope she’s going to hold her little Pain for Pride win close to her because that’s going to be the only positive note of her entire 2020.
(The photographer puts down the camera and signals the crew that the session is on hold for a few minutes. As the crew leaves the scene, Candice Blair gets a hold of a water bottle and drinks it up. Ms. Extreme looks on but she looks troubled)
Photographer: Five minutes break, guys. Please be back on time.
Ms. Extreme: Well, I’m happy you have such a positive attitude. I wish I could have some of your energy. Things have been rough for me lately…
(Candice Blair hugs Ms. Extreme for a few seconds. She then playfully pinches her cheek)
Candice Blair: Stop thinking about Pain for Pride. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. It’s in the past, no point in torturing yourself over what happened. Setbacks are part of the business, there’s nothing we can do about it. It’s all about how we bounce back from them. That’s all that truly matters in this industry.
Ms. Extreme: I appreciate your words, don’t get me wrong. I truly believe it doesn’t matter how many times one falls, all that matters is finding the strength to get back up and fight each and every time. There’s not a single doubt in my mind. However, I can’t help but feel frustrated. I’ve said it loud and clear, I want to be the next Universal Women’s Champion. I want it more than anything else in my life right now and I truly believe I have what it takes to dethrone Minerva but… somehow, someway, things always go wrong. I really thought I had the No Way Out match figured out but it didn’t go the way I wanted it to go. Now, sure, “No Way Out matches are unpredictable by definition, don’t beat yourself up for no reason” and all that jazz. I don’t want that sugarcoat. I was here for one reason and one reason only, I had to win and I didn’t. I’ve lost. I’ve failed. There’s no way around it. I’ve failed just like I’ve failed at Pain for Pride in the Cash in the Vault ladder match. Once again, I went in thinking I could bring the briefcase home with me but someone else won and I was left with nothing.
(Candice Blair raises her finger and opens her mouth as she was about to say something but she immediately closes her lips again as she realizes that letting her sister speak is probably the best option)
Ms. Extreme: I am going to find a way to get the Universal Women’s Championship around my waist but… how? How am I supposed to do that now? Serena Bennett is next in line for the Championship which makes me wonder… what’s next for me? What’s next for Ms. Extreme? I need to find a way to bounce back and get back in the title picture, I just need to figure out how I am going to do this.
Candice Blair: Going after the Universal Women’s Championship was the right call. Don’t let a couple of setbacks get to your head. Your time will come. In the meantime, why don’t you focus on remind the whole world who Ms. Extreme truly is? It seems to me like some of these folks have forgotten about the most dangerous of the Avas.
Ms. Extreme: You know what? You are absolutely right. The thing I hate the most about Pain for Pride is the fact that I couldn’t make Darcy May Morgan, aka Miss Super Darcy fall off her high horse. It’s going to be a very long season on Voltage, having to cope with her sense of entitlement. I am going to make sure our paths will cross again and this time around I will be the one who gets the last laugh on Super Darcy.
(As the two sisters keep talking, the camera pans over to Adam Lucas who walks right past her without noticing them. The two glare at him for a moment but they resume their conversation as soon as he walks out of the scene)
Candice Blair: Speaking of Darcy May Morgan, have you seen her match against Adam Lucas earlier? That young man was truly impressive out there. He was moments away from pulling the upset of the night, I’m not kidding. He looked absolutely spectacular out there tonight.
(Ms. Extreme rolls her eyes )
Ms. Extreme: Please. You got it all wrong. The only person who looked strong out there tonight was Super Darcy. And of course she did, as long as they keep feeding her lesser talents like Adam Lucas she has nothing to worry about. The worst thing about that ego maniac is that she’s probably boasting about this win too, as if it’s a big deal when it actually isn’t.
(The camera pans zooms out to reveal Adam Lucas who was paying close attention to what the two sisters were saying as he was listening from around the corner. He shakes his head in disappointment as he hears Ms. Extreme pronouncing those insulting words about him)
Adam Lucas (whispers): “Lesser talent”, huh? I’ll show her what Adam Lucas is all about. I will make them realise just how talented I really am.
(The scene ends as Adam Lucas walks away. Meanwhile Ms. Extreme and Candice Blair resume their conversation, before the camera cuts back to ringside, where Bella Braxton is ready to announce the next match.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…
(‘The Negative’ by Silent Season hits to a mixed reaction within the socially distanced crowd. Soon after, SKA begins walking out to the stage. He doesn’t spend much time there, as he soon begins walking down the ramp, not paying much attention to the mixed reception. He has a clearly focused look in his eyes as he makes his way down the ramp and towards the ring.)
Bella Braxton: …From Rotterdam, Netherlands…. Weighing in at 269 pounds….. SKA!!!!!!!!
James Peters: SKA is an extremely talented competitor, and at Pain for Pride he came so close to winning the 24/7 contract. Unfortunately he ended up being eliminated by Jon Kelton to win the match, but this season I’m sure he’s gonna find success of his own! Of course that could start here tonight with a win over a former Interwire Champion in Terry Chambers!
Rich Russillo: It’s definitely possible. Not very likely if you ask me, but still possible. We’ve seen bigger upsets in the past, and we all know SKA is definitely a talented individual. This could end up being a pretty close match.
Persephone: Ew. Why did he shave his head? He looks like a thumb now.
James Peters: That’s not nice.
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons then begins to play, and the small crowd goes from a mixed reaction to being full of cheers as Terry Chambers walks out to the stage. He takes a moment to look at the crowd, before shifting his attention back towards SKA and making his way down the ramp. After Pain for Pride, it’s clear that Terry’s going to want to get back on track, so he’s without a doubt completely focused and ready for this match.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent…. Residing in Los Angeles, California…. Weighing in at 257 pounds…. TEEERRRYYYYYYY CCCHHHAAAAAAMMMBBEEERRRRSSSS!!!!!
James Peters: Terry Chambers had a tough Pain for Pride as he lost his match for the Interwire Championship to Consuela Rose Ava. He may have ended that night on a good note seeing what happened after the match, but in the end he’s still walking into Voltage tonight without a title around his waist, and I’m sure Terry wants to change that as soon as possible.
Rich Russillo: These are two men who lost their matches at Pain for Pride, and yet are still two of the most dangerous men we have on this roster. This is a match I’m definitely looking forward to seeing. This is gonna get super physical and I’m all for it.
Persephone: Terry looks so disgusting now. He’s like a caveman. Poor Consuela. If only she had better taste.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And here we go! Terry Chambers versus SKA, two incredibly talented Elitists who are both coming off of unfortunate losses back at Pain for Pride to close the previous season. Terry almost towers over SKA at six-foot seven, meanwhile SKA is at six-two, yet SKA actually weighs more than Terry here. This should make for a pretty interesting match up if you ask me, and now it looks like SKA may be trying to offer Terry a handshake- BUT INSTEAD TERRY IMMEDIATELY GOES IN FOR THE LOCK UP! The two men now locking up! Both men trying to gain the advantage over the other, but neither man is budging! It looks like we have a test of strength going on here!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Terry is the one that’s able to power SKA towards the corner, BUT SKA HITS TERRY WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION BEFORE HE COULD GET IN ANY OFFENSE! SKA now grabbing Terry, and he turns him over to the corner! Now SKA is the one who has Terry in the corner, AND HE DRIVES HIS SHOULDER INTO TERRY’S MIDSECTION BEFORE THE REFEREE COULD BEGIN TO COUNT! SKA ONCE AGAIN DRIVING HIS SHOULDER INTO TERRY’S MIDSECTION, AND NOW SKA SENDS TERRY INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER BEFORE CHARGING IN!
Persephone: Clothesline by the suddenly bald SKA. Terry didn’t fall to his feet yet but now SKA is running the ropes. OH WOW, SKA tried finishing the match early with the detonator dropkick but Terry avoided it. Really wish he didn’t, but now Terry grabs SKA and lifts him up off the ground. He’s trying to hit a deadlift suplex but SKA is able to knee him in the head before landing on his feet. I don’t know how he didn’t break his ankles upon impact, Terry’s super tall. Tall for nothing too since he clearly can’t do anything right.
James Peters: SKA now with a kick to the midsection once again, this time following it up with a headlock! SKA attempting to take Terry down to the mat but Terry is doing whatever he can to stay on his feet! TERRY LIFTS SKA UP ATTEMPTING A BACK SUPLEX- BUT SKA MANAGES TO PULL HIMSELF BACK DOWN TO HIS FEET, BEFORE DRAGGING TERRY DOWN TO THE MAT WITH THE HEADLOCK TAKEDOWN! Great counter by SKA, and now it looks like Terry might actually be in a bit of trouble here!
Rich Russillo: SKA has Terry in that grounded headlock, and while I don’t see Terry tapping out to something like that this early on, it could definitely help wear Terry out and make the match easier for SKA going forward. Terry manages to get back up to a knee though, and what SKA needs to do here is quickly find a way to take Terry back to the ground before he could find a way to come back! SKA is in control of this match now, but that could quickly change if Terry successfully gets back up!
Persephone: Well, it looks like Terry did just that. He got back to his feet and now he just pushed SKA off of him. SKA bouncing off of the ropes- AND THE SUDDENLY HAIRIER TERRY TRIED TO HIT THE MOMENT OF SILENCE BUT SKA STOPPED IT WITH A BACK ELBOW! BOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! See what I mean when I say Terry can’t do anything right? If it was Rexy SKA wouldn’t have countered it, but yeah anyways SKA now is attempting to hit a forearm, but somehow that giant moron Terry actually managed to block it before hitting SKA with one of his own. Terry now going for a second one-
James Peters: BUT SKA MANAGES TO BLOCK IT JUST LIKE TERRY DID MOMENTS AGO! SKA NOW WITH A CHOP TO TERRY’S CHEST! Terry feeling the effects of that chop, BUT HE QUICKLY RETURNS THE FAVOR WITH A CHOP OF HIS OWN! Terry now with an irish whip to the corner before charging in- BUT SKA HITS TERRY WITH A BACK ELBOW! SKA NOW RUNNING THE ROPES ONCE AGAIN- ONLY TO GET HIT WITH A HUGE LARIAT BY TERRY CHAMBERS! These two are picking up the pace here it seems, but now Terry is backing up into the corner!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Terry’s waiting for SKA to get back to his feet, and I have a feeling I know exactly why! SKA is slowly getting back up, and this isn’t good! SKA doesn’t seem to know where he is, almost as if he was in some type of trance, and he needs to snap out of it or this match is about to end! TERRY CHAMBERS NOW CHARGING IN, RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE- NO! SKA ACTUALLY MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! TERRY QUICKLY TRYING TO GET BACK UP- BUT SKA TAKES HIM DOWN WITH AN STO BEFORE GOING FOR THE FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH! WILL THAT BE ENOUGH TO GET THE JOB DONE!?
Persephone: NOPE, unfortunately. Well SKA does have a history of losing matches where he actually has to try so I guess this match won’t be any different. Terry’s grabbing onto the ropes to get back up, and now SKA is running the ropes once again- Ow! That actually looks like it hurt. SKA tried to send Terry out of the ring, but Terry just lifted SKA over him and sent him out of the ring. I don’t know how SKA is still alive honestly, he basically just fell from the same height as a skyscraper.
James Peters: Well SKA is more than alive, he’s actually getting back up to his feet as we speak- BUT IT LOOKS LIKE TERRY MIGHT HAVE AN ANSWER FOR THAT! TERRY RUNNING THE ROPES HIMSELF NOW, AND HE TAKES SKA OUT WITH A HUGE SUICIDE DIVE! WOW! I DON’T KNOW HOW A MAN TERRY’S HEIGHT DOES IT, BUT SOMEHOW HE JUST HIT A SUICIDE DIVE! Terry has always been able to pull that off, and yet it still surprises me every single time! Terry now rolling SKA back into the ring before following behind-
Rich Russillo: WAIT! LOOK!! SKA GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET AND BACKING UP AS TERRY SLIDES INTO THE RING- AND NOW HE CHARGES IN!! DETONATOR DROPKICK!! THAT JUST CAME OUT OF NOWHERE!! SKA WAS JUST HIT WITH A SUICIDE DIVE MOMENTS AGO AND YET SOMEHOW HE WAS ABLE TO QUICKLY GET BACK UP AND HIT TERRY WITH THE DETONATOR DROPKICK! Honestly I think this may be it! Terry had no time to prepare for the move whatsoever, there’s no way he could’ve stopped it! The cover by SKA!
ONE! TWO!! THRE-
Persephone: Ugh another kickout by Terry! SKA what are you doing why can’t you just finish the match!? Is Terry really THAT difficult of an opponent for you? Since when has Terry Chambers ever been good? He literally just lost at Pain for Pride to the 5th best Ava in EAW.
James Peters: I’m pretty sure there’s only 3 active Ava’s currently on the EAW rost-
Persephone: I said what I said. Now SKA needs to either hurry up and put Terry away or just let Terry pin him and get this all over with so we can stop wasting MY time.
James Peters: Well SKA is slowly getting Terry to get back to his feet now- BUT TERRY HITS HIM WITH ANOTHER FOREARM- JUST TO BE MET WITH A KNEE LIFT TO THE MIDSECTION! SKA now is picking Terry up in a fireman’s carry position- BUT TERRY IS ABLE TO SLIP BEHIND HIM BEFORE GRABBING HIM BY HIS WAIST! GERMAN SUPLEX BY TERRY CHAMBERS!! TERRY IMMEDIATELY GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET, AND NOW HE DEADLIFTS SKA UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! TERRY MAY HAVE LOST A LOT OF THE WEIGHT HE HAD A YEAR AGO, BUT HE’S CLEARLY STILL JUST AS POWERFUL!
Rich Russillo: SIT OUT POWERBOMB BY TERRY CHAMBERS!! WHAT A MOVE FROM TERRY NOW!! TERRY GOING FOR THE PIN, AND THIS COULD GET THE JOB DONE HERE! A POWERBOMB FROM A MAN TERRY’S SIZE HAS TO BE DEVASTATING, IS THAT IT FOR SKA!?!?
ONE! TWO!! THR-
Rich Russillo: NO!!! SKA MANAGES TO KICK OUT JUST BEFORE THREE!!! Terry looks a little frustrated, and you can’t deny that SKA has given this man an excellent fight thus far. If this continues, I honestly think it could go either way. We might even see an upset with SKA as the winner!
Persephone: Honestly I couldn’t care less if SKA wins or not. If he does good for him if he doesn’t, too bad. I just want this match to end as soon as possible, and for some reason it’s like the entire Voltage roster has a vendetta against me and just insists on making their matches as long as they possibly can. Do you guys know how annoying that is? I’m only here for Rexy and now that I got to see him at the start of the show I have no reason to be here.
James Peters: Alright Persephone we get it. You do this every match. Anyways Terry is dragging SKA back to his feet, and he’s setting up for the Chambers of Pain! Terry with the double underhook- BUT SKA RAMS TERRY INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!! SKA WITH A GREAT COUNTER AS HE JUST RAN INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, CAUSING TERRY TO GO BACK FIRST INTO THEM! SKA NOW FREED FROM THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK, AND NOW HE MANAGES TO LIFT TERRY UP TO THE TOP ROPE! IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GOING FOR A BIG MOVE, THIS COULD BE EXTREMELY BAD FOR TERRY!
Rich Russillo: SKA just hit Terry with a forearm to keep him up on the top rope, and now he’s climbing up there to join him! SKA reaching the top, and now he’s trying to set up for a superplex, BUT TERRY WITH A PUNCH TO THE MIDSECTION! SKA STILL NOT GIVING UP, BUT HE’S HIT WITH A SECOND PUNCH TO THE MIDSECTION RIGHT AFTER! SKA IS STILL TRYING TO GO FOR THE SUPERPLEX- BUT TERRY MANAGES TO PUSH HIM OFF OF THE TOP ROPE!! TERRY GETTING DOWN FROM THE TOP ROPE, AND SKA TRIES CHARGING BACK IN-
Persephone: Ouch! Right into a headbutt from Terry. That’s the Moment of Silence or something, and it just knocked SKA out cold! Terry is going for the cover now and this better be it! PLEASE TERRY BE A COMPETENT ELITIST FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE! DON’T LET SKA KICK OUT OF THIS!
ONE! TWO!! THRE-
Persephone: Oh. I see. Terry Chambers is still useless. How could someone be that big and yet so garbage? He’s like the tallest guy on the roster but it clearly doesn’t matter since he can’t even beat SKA. What a waste.
James Peters: Well Persephone I think you’re gonna get exactly what you asked for actually! TERRY IS PICKING SKA BACK UP, AND HE’S LIFTING HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! TERRY IS SETTING UP FOR THE T-5, AND NOW HE GOES FOR IT- WAIT NO!!! SKA MANAGED TO COUNTER IT INTO A DDT!!! SKA JUST COUNTERED THE T-5!!! WHAT A WAY TO AVOID WHAT DEFINITELY WOULD’VE BEEN THE END OF THE MATCH! SORRY PERSEPHONE BUT I GUESS I WAS WRONG, THIS MATCH ISN’T ENDING JUST YET! OR AT LEAST, IT’S NOT ENDING THE WAY I THOUGHT IT WOULD! SKA NOW LIFTING TERRY UP IN A FIREMAN’S CARRY, AND THIS IS NOT SOMETHING YOU SEE VERY OFTEN, AND SKA HAS PULLED IT OFF TWICE NOW IN THIS MATCH!
Rich Russillo: AND JUST LIKE LAST TIME IT LOOKS LIKE TERRY HAS FOUND A WAY TO ESCAPE IT, ONLY THIS TIME HE DOES IT BY NAILING SKA IN THE HEAD WITH A HUGE ELBOW! TERRY GETTING DOWN FROM SKA’S SHOULDERS, AND NOW HE SETS UP FOR A SUPLEX! SUPLEX CONNECTS BY TERRY, BUT HE ISN’T FINISHING THERE! TERRY PICKING SKA BACK UP IN THE POWERBOMB POSITION BEFORE CHARGING INTO THE CORNER! TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB BY TERRY!!
Persephone: MES-CUTT??? WHAT?? WHATEVER! SOMEHOW SKA JUST BOUNCED OFF THE TURNBUCKLES AND HIT TERRY WITH THE MESS-CUTT, AND I WON’T BOTHER ASKING HOW HE DID IT! AS LONG AS THIS GETS THE JOB DONE I’M FINE WITH IT! SKA IS GOING FOR THE COVER, I THINK THAT’S IT! I HOPE THAT’S IT! PLEASE CAN THIS BE IT! TERRY JUST DON’T KICK OUT!
ONE! TWO!! THREE-
Persephone: ONE JOB!!! YOU HAD ONE JOB SKA!! WHY ARE YOU THIS AWFUL? I can’t rely on you people for anything, you’re all so useless it’s insane. This match really should’ve been over by now. Well it actually should’ve been over like fifteen minutes ago to be honest.
James Peters: SKA needs to figure out a way to finish Terry off and fast. Terry is down now, but it won’t be long before he finds a way to get back into this unless SKA could keep him down. SKA slowly dragging Terry back to his feet- AND TERRY TRIES TO THROW A RIGHT HAND BUT SKA DUCKED IT BEFORE HITTING TERRY WITH HIS OWN! SKA NOW WITH AN IRISH WHIP TO THE ROPES- BUT WAIT A MINUTE! TERRY HITS SKA WITH A HUGE BIG BOOT! WHERE DID THAT COME FROM!?
Rich Russillo: NO IDEA, BUT SKA MANAGES TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, JUST FOR TERRY TO RUN THE ROPES HIMSELF! RANDOM ACT OF VIOLE- WAIT NO! SKA MANAGES TO AVOID IT ONCE AGAIN, ONLY THIS TIME HE HITS A RUNNING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP BEFORE RUNNING TO THE ROPES! SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT BY SKA ONTO TERRY CHAMBERS!! INCREDIBLE MOVE FROM SKA, BUT…. He isn’t going for the cover? I don’t know, maybe SKA thinks that wouldn’t have gotten the job done, but for some reason he chose not to pin Terry…. OH! THAT’S WHY HE DIDN’T PIN HIM!
Persephone: Oh my God, how stupid could SKA be? Why didn’t he pin Terry? He should’ve at least tried before deciding it wouldn’t have worked. I don’t know what’s wrong with this dude but for some reason I guess he thinks the right thing to do here is to go for a HIGH RISK move on someone like Terry when he easily could’ve finished the match another way.
James Peters: Maybe this IS the best way to finish the match Persephone. Diving onto Terry from up there would definitely do a ton of damage! SKA has to know this! High risk means high reward.
Persephone: Whatever, anyways SKA is in position, and now he goes for a frog splash- JUST FOR TERRY TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY! SEE!? I TOLD YOU GUYS IT WAS A DUMB IDEA! YOU GUYS NEVER LIKE TO LISTEN TO ME!
James Peters: I HATE TO ADMIT IT, BUT YOU WERE RIGHT! TERRY JUST AVOIDED THE FROG SPLASH, AND NOW HE USES EVERYTHING HE HAS LEFT TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET AND PICK SKA UP IN THE FIREMAN’S CARRY! T-5 BY TERRY CHAMBERS!!! TERRY JUST HIT THE T-5, THAT’S IT! THAT’S GOTTA BE IT! TERRY GOING FOR THE COVER, AND THAT’S THE END! SKA IS OUT!!
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…… TEERERRRRYYYYY CCCHHHAAAAAMMMMMMBBBEEERRRRRSSSS!!!!
James Peters: What a match! This was nonstop action from the very beginning, amazing performance by both men! These two just wouldn’t stop! It was big move after big move after big move, but in the end Terry Chambers managed to connect with the T-5 after avoiding a frog splash from SKA, and that was enough to get him a win on the first Voltage of the season!
Rich Russillo: This could be an amazing season for Terry, but to be honest the same could definitely be said for SKA! Even since his last run in EAW SKA has shown how much potential he has, but this season could definitely be his. Great showcase of what these two men could do, I’m excited to see what’s in store for both of them.
Persephone: I’m not. In fact, Bloodsport is coming up soon right? Can we get these two in like a “First person to die loses” match or something? I just want them gone. Both of them.
James Peters: But the season just started-
Persephone: And I already don’t like SKA. I had to suffer with Terry last season, I don’t want to do it again.
James Peters: Alright Persephone. Anyways, congratulations Terry Chambers!
(‘Natural’ hits, and the socially distanced crowd begins to cheer as Terry Chambers takes a few seconds to breathe before getting back to his feet. The referee raises Terry’s hand before allowing Terry to celebrate on his own. As Terry climbs up to the middle rope and holds up his arms, SKA rolls out of the ring, still feeling the effects of the T-5 that cost him the match as Voltage fades to a commercial break.)

(Voltage returns from break and cuts to an interview that was taped earlier in the afternoon at the Performance Center. Sofia Clarke is seen sitting behind the Fight Grid host desk and she has a large smile on her face. To her right, seated in a chair, is the beautiful Universal Women’s Champion, Minerva. The championship is displayed on the top of the desk and the camera takes a good look at it before focusing on the two women. After a moment, Sofia starts speaking.)
Sofia Clarke: Thank you for joining me this afternoon, Minerva. A lot has happened since you joined EAW back at the start of last year. How would you put your journey into perspective from then to now?
(A slight chuckle escapes from Minerva’s dark red lips, twirling some strands from her long red hair.)
Minerva: From then to now, that is a very interesting way to put it, Sofia. See, I was sought by Ronn Banks, he personally reached out to me one day while this was still Revolution Pro, or something like that, I only pay attention to details when I need to. I came in brash, I automatically thought I would be successful right away, wrestling on Empire gave me the chase to get my feet wet some, wrestling women that most are no longer here, yet I wanted their spots. I stumbled a little, there was a stretch after the first Iconic Cop where I needed to get back on my feet, that is when the tag team scene became apparent. I never wanted to be a tag team wrestler, it happened and I am glad for it, it gave me new life, and used to catapult myself to where I am now. There was a time when many thought I would end up like The Crowe’s nest, Tyler Wolfe or Felix Hartley, get that huge praise, given the platform to succeed and now they are merely ghosts of the past. That wasn’t me, it’s why I’m sitting in front of you right now holding the Universal Women’s Championship.
Sofia Clarke: Did you ever think that you would form a team with Constance Blevins and have the kind of success you did?
(Her eyebrow archers, tilting her head some.)
Minerva: Of course I did. Constance Blevins and I were forged by necessity, tell me another team that is like that and not just a couple of wrestlers who get this bright idea to team because it will be cool. No, the only way Constance and I were going to survive the current climate was to bond forces together and fight those who were trying to destroy us. When the Empire brand fell, we had no other person to turn to but ourselves. We shocked the EAW Universe at Pain For Pride last year, winning in a match that we were the only tag team who had to actually “qualify” for even as Empire Tag Champions. It was the start of our record breaking dominance, even if some Elitists whose asses are licked by the mass lemmings in the locker room and stands think we were paper champions and no competition. Funny thing was? We had a tendency of breaking up teams and watching them leave or fizzle away in obscurity, all of this happening while Jenny Punk over on Showdown were practically mishandling our careers on purpose. We refused, resisted and reclaimed our spots until the bitter end.
Sofia Clarke: Back at Clash of Kingdoms, you had to face Constance in the finals of the Iconic Cup. In order to take another step to fulfilling your dream, you had to crush the dream of your sister. How were you able to put those feelings to the side?
(She didn’t see this question coming, taking a breath and brushing her long red hair back, the Gypsy Moth finally spoke…)
Minerva: I didn’t. I went in there knowing that one of us was going to have our dreams crushed and would have to take another more arduous road to get into the Main Event at Pain For Pride, and even then, there were no guarantees either of us would be a Universal Women’s Champion. As the match progressed, all I could do was continue trying to beat my sister in arms, as she was doing to me. Honestly? She pushed me to my limits, she continued throughout the match reminding me what was on the line, it was Constance who finally allowed me to put my feelings aside for those three seconds.
Sofia Clarke: Why did you decide to cash in on Raven back at Under Siege?
(A smirk forms on her face, icy blue eyes glancing at the title….)
Minerva: Why not? I mean Raven Roberts was the one to beat, she was the Belle of the Brawl, she won the Cash In The Vault, took the title from Kassidy Heart and now was defending it against two up and comers. We were the unfortunate victims of injustice in our tag team title match, The Visual Prophet and Drake King stole those belts after Constance was hurt. I wasn’t going to leave Under Siege without a title. I had the power in my hands and took advantage of it. Much like our Cash in the Vault winner now, everything sooner or later comes crashing down. I remember the match between Raven and Constance from Wicked Games, this was just as much for her as it was for me. I saw the opening, I took it.
Sofia Clarke: How did it feel to finally have the Universal Women’s Championship in your hands?
(The Gypsy Moth starts to chuckle a little…)
Minerva: It was fifteen months of watching Felix Hartley get all the press with the stupid Stallion shit. It was fifteen months of Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart drama playing out on TV. It was fifteen months of The Queen’s Court doing everything they can to destroy me because I was different. Fifteen months of getting played at the whim by Jenny Punk on Showdown to help Mr. DEDEDE, Xander Payne, Visual Prophet, Jamie O’Hara and Cameron push their agendas at my expense and that of Constance? Fifteen months seeing the EAW pump their promotional dollars on deserters like Tyler Wolfe, Remi Skyfire and the aforementioned Felix Hartley while the ENTIRE time it was ME who they should have been giving the keys to the palace. Fifteen months of hell and disrespect culminated into this, the title that should have been defending the people, those who are not mainstream and popular, they have a different look or alternative lifestyle, I should have been defending them, instead they are just like the rest of these sheep… bahahahaha…. Over the Elitists who would turn the other cheek and not give a damn about any of them. It felt liberating, when I lifted that title over my head as Champion. It was the middle finger to the establishment, Sofia and it felt damn good.
Sofia Clarke: What are you prepared to do to Serena Bennett in order to keep it?
(Slowly tilting her head)
Minerva: What am I prepared to do? The question should be, what won’t I do to keep this title? Serena Bennett has had her way since the moment she stepped foot in the EAW. She has NEVER and I mean NEVER been challenged like I will do to her. She thinks this is a match? No, this is a bloodbath, a massacre and I will bathe in it to cleanse myself of this bureaucracy, no more feudal systems in the EAW. I’m the bitch now.
Sofia Clarke: The match is set for Bloodsport, but a stipulation has yet to be announced. Do you have a dream stipulation for yourself and Serena?
(The red headed beauty pretends to be deep in though, tapping on her chin…)
Minerva: A Mud Match! Please… I don’t care Sofia, we can do whatever, give her the advantage if they want, place her in a match that benefits her, so when I beat her in it, there are no excuses.
Sofia Clarke: How would you sum up your championship reign so far?
(Her icy blue eyes narrow, glaring right at Sofia making her a bit uncomfortable.)
Minerva: Not good enough. See, Sofia, the measure of a champion is by the opponents she beats. Kasey Kaos? A future champion here in EAW, no doubt about it, in fact I admire this woman, I think she and I should be on the same side, but titles tend to pit people against one another. I can’t say enough great things about her, but of course, she hasn’t been here 6 months, there is still time for her to ascend. Raven Roberts? Is one of the best female competitors here, any brand, doesn’t matter. She has broken records and established herself as being the leader of the Women’s Division. At Pain For Pride, I walked into the match already winning half the battle. I commend her drive and passion, but against a devil like myself, it will only lead to heartbreak and torment. Now I ask? Where are the rest? Where is Sienna? Kassidy? Any Ava? Darcy already has her shot, let’s see if she is a woman to face me one on one and not sneak attack. The women who I mentioned have no interest pigeon holed in this division, except one, because she was the ONLY one to answer the challenge. Serena Bennett. When I beat her? Then my title reign means something, I beat the very best. Until then, I will continue to prove why I am the top bitch here now.
Sofia Clarke: Looking ahead, what else do you hope to accomplish here in EAW?
(Starting to laugh, the Gypsy Moth licks her lips, smirking….)
Minerva: I want it all. Don’t you see Sofia, I want to be a part of Territorial Invasion, I want to compete in an Extreme Elimination Chamber at Road to Redemption, I want to be a part of the King of Elite tournament and WIN them all. I WILL be a WORLD CHAMPION, I will hold the top title in EAW and then they will look up to me and call Minerva…. QUEEN. One day I will be in the Hall of Fame. They can’t stop me, this Universal Women’s Championship is the first of many.
Sofia Clarke: Your actions on Dynasty spoke volumes. But is there anything you want to actually say to Serena should she be watching this?
(Her eyes shift to the camera, glaring right at it, slowly holding up the Universal Women’s Championship…)
Minerva: Atlas Falls. I was taught that move by a very interesting benefactor. You, Serena were the first to ever experience it. At the EAW Draft show, you gave me heat of your fire, blasting me with the mic and thinking this was going to be your way. At Dynasty, I walked into your backyard, reminding everyone that I go where I want and when I want to. I burned you with the flame and left you lying so that the world can witness that Minerva is not just Champion…. She rules this, bitch. *YAWN*…. I’ll see you soon.
Sofia Clarke: Thank you for your time, Minerva. Good luck tonight against Ahren.
(Minerva nods her head and runs a perfectly manicured finger across the top of the Universal Women’s Championship. She softly strokes it before reaching the nameplate and tapping it, making sure her name is the last image the camera catches as Voltage fades into a commercial break.)

(Bella Braxton stands in the ring as the main event match is set to begin.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is your main event match of the evening…and it’s scheduled for ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Children Of The Son’ by Pipe Choir plays as the crowd comes to hush as this signifies the entrance of none other than the Universal Women’s Champion, Minerva. The arena has gone dark by now, and the echoing when the lone spotlight is shown. Now Minerva appears on stage, kneeling and licking her lips, looking around wearing her hat and glasses, carrying her gypsy chain and wearing a black jacket. She has the Universal Women’s Championship strapped around her waist.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…She hails from The Florida Everglades…She weighs in at ONE HUNDRED TWENTY TWO POUNDS…She’s known as ‘THE GYPSY MOTH’…She’s the current REIGNING AND DEFENDING UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION…Making her Voltage debut!…Please welcome….MINERVA!!!!!!!!
James Peters: What a way for our main event to open here folks. The darkness continues over the Voltage brand. First we had Kasey Kaos earlier in the show, and the welcoming to Voltage we have the Universal Women’s Champion, Minerva! This one promises to be an explosive main event!
(Suddenly the mysterious Mr. Gunari walks out, carrying a black rose. Minerva slowly looks around with a smile on her face before crawling a little and slowly standing on her two feet where Mr. Gunari places the rose in her mouth. The crowd buzzes, a mixture of boos and cheers, and to this reaction Minerva begins to laugh before looking around wide-eyed and making her way to the ring. She stops and gets close to some of the fans before backing up and licking her lips again. She stops and turns to the rampway where she points to the ceiling, her eyes roll to the back of her head, not moving, making the signal of the cross as Mr. Gunari nods. Minerva starts to laugh before she skips down to the ring and hops on the apron, hanging upside down on the ropes for a moment as the crowd continues to give a mixture of boos and cheers.)
Rich Russillo: You gotta love the presentation here by Minerva, the newest addition to Voltage! We saw a variation of this at Pain For Pride! You just get the feeling that this woman wants to make more than a fair impression to start this season out on her new brand! I can’t wait to see what she has in store.
(Minerva is shown stepping through the ropes that are being held by Mr. Gunari. Minerva now stands in the middle of the ring, looking around before walking to the corner and learning against the turnbuckle in a seated position, taking off her hood and licking her lips with a smirk on her face, waiting for the matchup to begin, while Mr. Gunari steps outside in her corner, holding the rose.)
(‘Starboy’ by The Weeknd plays now as Ahren Fournier steps out on the Voltage stage for the first time this season, and the second time in his EAW career. Ahren holds his weapon choice in his hand, his trusty umbrella. He stands there a moment, taking in the crowd reaction which is a united front of surprisingly mostly cheers for the newly ascended Hall of Famer. Ahren nods his head and talks his shit while snickering to the camera.)
Bella Braxton: And introducing her opponent…He hails from Pawtucket, Rhode Island…He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED TEN POUNDS…He’s known as ‘THE GOAT’…AHREN!!!!!! FOURNIER!!!!!
Persephone: Ah man, not this guy! This guy has got to be one of the most annoying human beings on the face of the planet. I can’t believe this guy has the audacity to show himself here. Wasn’t this the man that used a pair of pliers to try permanently rearranging the fingers of my Sexy Rexy or something!!?? I believe so, and I’m not impressed by him one bit but I can’t wait for Rex to put this bitch in his place like he does everyone!
(Ahren is now shown sauntering toward the ring.)
James Peters: Well, for many this is a return to Voltage in the case of Ahren Fournier. He started out his career on Voltage as a completely different character than the one we see now. He’s fought all the greats of this company, and has one World Title reign to his resume and a reign as Interwire champion. He’s admitted to having an off year the season before but this is the chance for him to completely turn things around starting tonight in the main event!
Rich Russillo: First impressions are everything, just like with Minerva. He may have had previous history here, but that’s the past. Now he’s got to show why he can be a key player here this season and perhaps beyond.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Our main event match on the first Voltage of the new season is now underway, and it should be an interesting one. The self proclaimed GOAT and newly enshrined Hall of Famer, Ahren Fournier, against a woman that’s unleashed the monster inside her since becoming the Universal Women’s champion. Minerva has treaded down a path that many just don’t go without reason. Both of these competitors are looking to keep their momentum going from Pain For Pride where both left their mark.
Rich Russillo: And the mind games already seem to be in play here as Ahren Fournier looks down at Minerva who just remains crouched down in her corner staring ominously…ugh, wow. What could be going through that woman’s mind right now. Ahren doesn’t know how to react right now as he stands there very puzzled. Minerva licking her lips, but I don’t think it’s in as much one of seductiveness as it appears to be of hungry eyes.
Ahren Fournier: You creep me out! I’m not going to have that…Bih!
Persephone: She looks like just another emo goth chic straight out of the gap trying way too hard to be scary. Though she’s pretty damn pale so she’s able to pull off, I guess. Ugh is right.
James Peters: The woman known as ‘The Gypsy Moth’, the Universal Women’s Champion, Minerva is finally rising from her corner as Ahren awaits for her to make a move, and she does. Or was that a hesitation sike out by Minerva?
Rich Russillo: Whatever it was it made Ahren take a step off from Minerva just as it looked as though he was about to tie up with her. Ahren though is trying to get his bearings about himself as Minerva stares down her opponent with narrowed eyes. And now it looks like they are about to lock up as Ahren attempts to move in again.
Persephone: Thank God! I thought this was wrestling anyways, not a staring contest to see who could make uglier faces.
James Peters: And finally they both tie up, and it’s Ahren with the height and power advantage that looks to take the early lead in this matchup! Our first Voltage main event of the brand new season! Ahren looks like he’s winning the strength contest as he already has the Universal Women’s Champion down to her kn-…
Rich Russillo: NO! He doesn’t! Look at Minerva! She’s yanked one of her hands free, and she just dug the tips of her nails into one of the arms of Fournier! Ahren’s in shock as he yells out in pain! Minerva takes advantage by twisting the arm of Ahren Fournier right into a wrist lock! Oh, and Minerva’s biting the knuckles of Ahren! Persephone: What is she, some kind of cannibal too? Doesn’t that other gothic freak who allegedly has a demon in her do that? Or wasn’t that the blonde who just cried us all a river last week with her woe is me schtick after getting an minor owey on her head? James Peters: Minerva turns the wristlock right into a hammerlock! The crowd is into this one early despite neither of these competitors being the most liked amongst the fans. Ahren Fournier struggling to free himself. OMG! Minerva just licked the ear of Ahren Fournier, and now Fournier just forced his way out of Minerva’s grasp and rolls straight out of the ring. Ahren is already agitated at the antics of Minerva. Rich Russillo: Is this woman something else or what? Minerva drops down to her knees to all fours and crawls in the direction of Ahren Fournier who just looks on not knowing what to do with this woman. The referee is already at the count of three, but Ahren is barely paying attention it seems because he’s so fixated on what Minerva is going to do next. The referee’s count continues and now Ahren, realizing he’s in danger of being counted out, begins arguing with the referee to no avail. He wants the referee to make Minerva clear out so he can make his way back in the ring. And Minerva herself obliges as is now back to a standing vertical base, taking a couple of steps back.
Persephone: Can this guy decide exactly what he wants to do? Make weird faces, whine, or hurry and get this match over with. I mean he’s already boring enough as it is. I want to see my Sexy Rexy back out here! Did you see how he took command tonight on the mic? That’s how it should be every moment on Sunday nights.
James Peters: Ahren is now back to his feet and both competitors are circling the ring, and now they begin to move in on one another. The collar and elbow tie up again, and once again Ahren grabs the advantage. This time Ahren transitions a wristlock into the hammerlock, but Minerva reverse rolls through and applies the hammerlock and uses her free hand to yank Ahren by the hair pulling his head back with force. Ahren yelps!
Minerva (off mic): My Heaven…YOUR HELL, AHREN!
Rich Russillo: Ahren reverses the hold and finally frees himself and launches a boot to the midsection of the Universal Women’s Champion, and now a headbutt by Ahren that immediately knocks her to the canvas! Minerva quickly is back on her feet but Ahren is right there to meet her and sends her to the ropes, and Minerva leapfrogs over Ahren coming back but Ahren is able to pull Minerva in. He’s looking for a belly to back suplex but Minerva lands on her feet! Now a side headlock by Minvera, but Ahren tries shoving her away again and not this time! Minerva still has a firm hold of the side headlock! The momentum of that shove by Ahren helps Minerva to the ropes where she applies even more pressure on the head and with the leverage of the ropes Minerva plants her feet on the second rope and springs off them, taking Ahren with her! A bulldog by Minerva to the Hall of Famer, Ahren Fournier! The cover by ‘The Gypsy Moth’!
Persephone: OH COME ON! Why’d that pasty pale faced bitch have to let that whiny narcissist get his shoulder up!!?? This match is putting me to sleep!!
James Peters: Minerva grabs up Ahren and Ahren goes for a wild swing at Minerva, but Minerva ducks! Now Minerva grabs the hair of Ahren and starts to force Ahren back toward the corner, but Ahren halts that attempt and begins forcing Minerva back toward the opposite corner! Now Ahren goes for a running high knee that Minerva dodges! Minerva moved out of the way in a nick of time, back rake by Minerva! Ahren felt that one as he contorts his body! Ahren turns right into a corner clothesline by Minerva! She’s really going to work on Ahren! She sends Ahren off the ropes but Ahren reverses and sends Minerva to the ropes instead! Coming back Minerva is met by a hard side kick! Minerva keels over after a stiff front kick! Belly to belly suplex to Minerva! Ahren trying to capitalize as he uses the second rope to execute the double foot stomp! No! Minerva clears out before he could plant his feet to the canvas!
Rich Russillo: This lady is especially devious, but clever and smart too! She knows Ahren from previous experiences! She’s not just going to get caught up like that in no man’s land.
James Peters: Indeed. Baseball slide under, clever move! Scissor kick sends Ahren reeling into the ropes, but Ahren comes back with another hard kick to the midsection! Clubbing blow to the back of Minerva, and Ahren has seemingly had a enough as he grabs Minerva and sends her around once before releasing her allowing her to crash shoulder first into the steel post in the corner! Minerva comes reeling out of the corner holding her shoulder in a great deal of pain right into the waiting arms of Ahren Fournier. Ahren pulls her in, he’s got something in mind here! Double underhook powerbomb! Minerva is down and out on her back! This could be it! Ahren with the cover!
Persephone: Are you freaking kidding me right now!!?? He should have sent her crashing outside head first into the barricade! I heard that it really can do some serious head damage if you do it right! I just want this match to be over with already! Is that really asking too much!!??
Rich Russillo: I can take your mind off this match real quick, if you’d like?
Persephone: Ugh! Yuck. I’ll pass. I just want to see someone in the ring that knows what they’re doing, and knows how to actually entertain me! Why couldn’t they book my Sexy Rexy this week!!?? He’s likely very unhappy about that too!! If that doesn’t scream injustice, I sure don’t know what does.
James Peters: Ahren has Minerva up, and then takes her back down with a snap suplex! Ahren takes time to pose for the crowd, and they somewhat approve it seems with a low buzz! Ahren Fournier is never short for a reaction from these people regardless of how many are in the stands. Ahren grabs Minerva by the hair to pull her up and now knocks her back with a stiff punch to the face, and another! Minerva reeling back and now Ahren surveys the situation and drops back into the ropes for momentum as he takes off with a running knee that he turns into a neckbreaker on Minerva now! What a combination by Ahren! Another cover by Fournier, this could be it!
Rich Russillo: Minerva kicks out again, showing the fight that she has. No doubt Ahren is going to have to do more than that to put Minerva away! Now Ahren grabs Minerva up and tosses her through the ropes down to the floor and Ahren wastes no time in following her out! The fans are heckling Fournier, but like the pro that he is he lets them know what he thinks with that middle finger!
James Peters: Ahren now tosses Minerva into the glass and barricaded area! Ahren looks like he’s setting up for The Climax as he stands on the apron! Minerva coming to now and Ahren launches himself toward Minerva but he misses! Ahren’s leg just crashed into nothing but glass and barricade, and here comes Minerva to take advantage as she grabs Ahren by the hair and slams his head into the glass and then whips him around and sends him into the ringpost next! Minerva isn’t done! She’s going for a reverse german suplex! She’s going to send Ahren back and head into that glass! She might be trying to send him through the glass, but not happening! The GOAT wakes up and finally comes to his senses as he provides something for Minerva to think about with that sharp back elbow! The referee being awfully lenient with both competitors by not providing much resistance with a ring out count.
Rich Russillo: It’s the main event, James! There’s no way these kinds of matches should ever end in such a travesty. Both of these competitors deserve every moment they can muster to beat the unholy living hell out of each other!
Persephone: I clamor for the moment they both knock each other senseless so this match can finally end! Neither one of them seem like they’d be very fun in bed. Not like I’m sure Rexy Sexualicious is!
James Peters: Ahren takes Minerva now and rolls her back into the ring. Now Ahren enters the ring and stomps on the back of Minerva who is slow to recover! Ahren is no longer looking to pose for the crowd. He knows it’s time to be all business as he grabs Minerva up and shoves her into the nearby corner! Kick and knee strike combinations by Ahren to the ‘The Gypy Moth’. Now Ahren whips Minerva to the ropes but Minerva stops herself, and Ahren tries for an attack but a running clothesline sends Ahren back! Ahren bounces off the ropes, and now the thesz press by Minerva and repeated punches to the head of Ahren who tries to cover up! But Minerva is relentless! Minerva is up and she’s very spry at the moment as she bounces off the ropes before Ahren can react and connects with a baseball slide dropkick to the face of Ahren! Ahren’s head contorts back with force from that dropkick! Minerva stomps on the hand of Ahren, and Ahren yelps as Minerva attempts to stomp his face but Ahren blocks the attempt! A stiff kick to the midsection sends Minerva reeling back holding her stomach area! Ahren smells blood as he gets back to his feet and immediately plants the face of Minerva into the canvas! NO! Minerva is blocking the attempt! Minerva with the escape and a swinging neckbreaker by Minerva!
Rich Russillo: She’s clearly not done here! Ahren trying to rise back up to meet her but Minerva is already on the top rope, there she goes! Hell’s Bells by Minerva! The split-legged moonsault off the top rope that knocks Fournier to the canvas! The cover by Minerva!
James Peters: Ahren kicks out just before the three count! The GOAT is still alive in this contest, but Minerva looks to keep the momentum going in her favor. Now she’s putting a blatant choke on Ahren, and the referee is there to give the warning before counting. Minerva lets up at four, but then goes back to it again! This time however jabs at the bridge of her nose with a forearm that sends her falling back! Now Ahren proceeds to take the offensive and goes to the ground and pound on the Universal Women’s Champion! There’s a huge gash on the bridge of Minerva’s nose!
Persephone: Ugh….that’s disgusting! That’s nowhere near being attractive in the least. What I wouldn’t give to go back to sexy Rexy when he had his moment again. What I wouldn’t give to live that again! Muah! You’re the best Rexy!
Rich Russillo: Ahren really did a number on Minerva’s nose, the effects are starting to show as Minerva has blood running down her face from her nose right now as the referee has to force Ahren off by pulling him off! He doesn’t want to throw the match, not with these two greats going at it! Not when it’s the first main event of the season! These fans deserve a winner!
James Peters: Ahren though, he’s taken some exception. He’s in the face of the referee. Now he shoves the referee into the ropes! Now the referee staggers back into the ropes, and wait a minute! Minerva spins Ahren around and kicks him square in the gut, now she’s looking to hoist him up! She may be trying to end it with a move she calls Atlas Falls!
Persephone: Thank God for that! These two couldn’t be putting on a worse main event match! This wouldn’t happen at all if my Rexy were in it!
Rich Russillo: Not so fast, Seph! Ahren was not about to have any of that as he blocks the attempt! Ahren escapes and shoves Minerva off into the ropes! Ahren going Protect Ya Neck! The clothesline from hell! NO! MINERVA WAS ABLE TO DODGE THE MANEUVER! NOW SHE PICKS AHREN UPSIDE DOWN! SHE’S GOT HIM! I KNOW THIS MOVE! IT’S THE PRINCESS KILLER! BUT I GUESS IN AHREN’S CASE THAT’D BE THE PRINCE KILLER! AHREN TRYING TO FIGHT OUT! BUT NO! MINERVA SPINS AND JUMPS UP WITH THE BIGGER AHREN FOURNIER AND PLANTS HIS HEAD FIRST INTO THE CANVAS! MINERVA ON HER KNEES AS SHE STARES DOWN AT AHREN AS SHE LICKS HER LIPS!
James Peters: WHAT’S SHE DOING!!?? OH MY GOD! SHE’S GOUGING THE EYES OF FOURNIER! SHE’S FORCING HER FINGERS INTO THE EYE SOCKETS! OH GOD I CAN’T WATCH THIS!! THE REFEREE IS NOW TRYING TO INTERVENE PHYSICALLY ON MINERVA! NO!!!!!!! SHE SPIT THE DARK INTO THE FACE OF THE REFEREE!! WHAT IN GOD’S IS SHE DOING! MINERVA SLOWLY RISES BACK TO HER FEET AS THE REFEREE IS YELLING OUT BECAUSE OF HOW MUCH THE DARK IS BURNING HIS EYES RIGHT NOW! MINERVA GRABS THE REFEREE! SHE’S GOT THE REFEREE LOCKED IN THE INVERTED FACE LOCK! PARADISE LOST!!!
Persephone: This bitch is straight up crazy! Is she intending to murder someone!!??
Rich Russillo: Don’t worry, Seph. I’m always here when you need it, emotionally and physically! But I’ll have to agree. Minerva is definitely somewhere else right now!
James Peters: Minerva looks down at her fallen prey, clearly satisfied with her handy work!

James Peters: Wait a minute! There’s commotion coming from the crowd!
(DING! DING! DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: IT’S SERENA BENNETT AND MINERVA’S FACE SAYS IT ALL!! SHE’S PISSED THAT SERENA WOULD EVEN HAVE THE AUDACITY TO INTERRUPT HER VOLTAGE MAIN EVENT DEBUT!! MINERVA IMMEDIATELY DARTS THROUGH THE ROPES OUT OF THE RING TO MEET SERENA! SERENA DARTS AT MINERVA! SERENA GRABS MINERVA’S LEGS AND TAKES HER DOWN! SERENA IS ALREADY WAILING AWAY AT THE GYPSY MOTH! WHY CAN’T SHE STAY OVER ON HER OWN BRAND!!??
James Peters: THESE TWO CLASHED BRIEFLY AT THE DRAFT SHOW LAST WEEKEND WHEN SERENA CHALLENGED MINERVA FOR THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP! MINERVA WARNED SERENA NOT TO TAKE THAT ROUTE BECAUSE THERE’S NO BOUNDS THE GYPSY WON’T GO TO DESTROY ANOTHER PERSON’S LIVELY-HOOD AS WE WITNESSED WITH RAVEN ROBERTS! SERENA GRABS MINERVA UP WITH FORCE AND ATTEMPTS TO SEND MINERVA INTO THE STEEL STEPS BUT NOW A HEADBUTT BY MINERVA! NOW MINERVA HAS SERENA BY THE HAIR AND SHE ATTEMPTS TO SMASH SERENA’S FACE ON THE RING, BUT IT’S BLOCKED! IT’S SERENA THAT TURNS THE TABLES AND SENDS MINERVA’S HEAD INTO THE RING! MINERVA IS CLEARLY OUT OF ENERGY HAVING JUST COMPETED IN A HIGHLY ANTICIPATED MATCH IN OUR MAIN EVENT AND SERENA ROLLS MINERVA INTO THE RING AND FOLLOWS CLOSE BY! MINERVA SLOWLY TRYING TO RISE UP!
Rich Russillo: How fair is this, James!!?? Serena is such a coward! She obviously knows she can’t beat Minerva one on one at full strength. This is just a downright desperate move by a desperate woman who Minerva threatened, but still! This is just wrong on so many levels!
Persephone: It’s kind of exciting, I guess. But what’s the point?
James Peters: The point is evident! Serena Bennett is sending a statement here and now! She grabs Minerva by her arm and twists it! TIP TOE TO THE BACK OF MINERVA’S SKULL KNOCKS HER OUT COLD!! SERENA BENNETT IS UP TO HER FEET AND SHE’S STANDING TALL AGAIN, LOOKING DOWN AT THE FALLEN UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION WITH DETERMINATION AND INTENSITY!
(“Surfin’ (ft. Pharrell Williams)” by Kid Cudi starts up again as the crowd cheers for Serena Bennett)
James Peters: STATEMENT MADE BY SERENA BENNETT!! I wouldn’t say she was here to save a murder massacre from happening tonight, but Serena definitely had intent behind her reasons for being here tonight, and she clearly did what she came here to do! Rich Russillo: It’s a downright travesty! This is not how the first main event match of the new season should end! Does Dynasty really want us to come over there and put them in their places!!??
James Peters: We’re out of time folks! For Rich Russillo and Persephone Tsitsipas, I’m James Peters saying goodnight and we’ll see you next week!
