(EAW intro plays.)
(Voltage fades into a highlight video of last week’s action packed episode! Newcomers Katheryn Wicked and Serena Riot are seen taking one another to their limit in an impromptu hardcore match. Katheryn would have her hand raised in the end, but both women would leave lasting impressions! Kai Zolomon and Shortfuse PAKA would wage war in singles action. Kai would get the better of PAKA, but both men were extremely impressive! The Big Boogie Bhampion, Woogie, and Paul Joshua would have a bloody mess of a match. Paul Joshua would pick up a huge win here in EAW! Cepheus St. Claire would continue his winning ways and make easy work of Desmond Black! Newcomer Dr. Bethany Blue would make her in-ring debut against Jesse Barlow, picking up a win thanks to Consuela Rose Ava! The feud between Barlow and Ava continues to boil, and those two will be facing one another at Bloodsport in a ‘Fans Bring The Weapons’ match! Ms. Extreme would defeat Jalyn Garcia and Korey Gaines in an exciting triple threat match to pick up her first win of Season 13! As far as the main event of the show goes, Noah Reigner would score a huge victory over the Interwire Champion, Terry Chambers. The match was truly a spectacle. Other highlights include Matt Daniels announcing an ‘Ultimate Opportunity’ Barbed Wire Ladder match! Korey Gaines being gifted Interwire Championship contendership plus a possible Tahitian bride! Fire and Ice throwing down Bloodsport challenges, including Raven calling out former Answers World Champion, Theron Nikolas! Ms. Extreme stepping up to Rex’s challenge! Charlie Marr making a deal with the devil in Bora Bora, and then getting the better of EAW Champion, Malcolm Jones during a ‘Cloth Talk’ segment! Needless to say, it was another amazing episode of Sunday Night Voltage. :wow:)
(The highlight video fades and switches to a panoramic view of the sold-out Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio. The good ole Voltage theme song, “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami, is playing. White and gold pyro explodes from the stage, and the fans inside the arena go crazy. The smoke clears, the lights come up, and the camera cuts to the ring. All cheers turn to jeers as the bearded hottie, Charlie Marr, and his faithful angel, Jordie Ripley, are standing in the ring. Jordie clings to Charlie’s arm, batting her eyes at him, looking up at him like he is some kind of mythical god. The most arrogant smile ever is etched across Charlie’s face, and other than two or three women with really low self esteem in the front row, the audience just really can’t stand him.)
Crowd: FUCK YOU CHARLIE! FUCK YOU CHARLIE! FUCK YOU CHARLIE! FUCK YOU CHARLIE! FUCK YOU CHARLIE! FUCK YOU CHARLIE!
(The Voltage theme song has faded and Jordie has retrieved a microphone. She hands it to Charlie.)
Charlie Marr: I’ve made it no secret that I hate the whores who currently run rampant on this brand. Not a single one of them belong on my show, and I think I’ve made it perfectly clear what my agenda is going forward. After I become the EAW Champion at Bloodsport, things around here are going to change. These dumb cunts are going to get their asses beat, and find themselves out of this company. I’m at your head, and I’m coming for ya, just like I’m coming for that EAW Championship. I’m sick of fucking around and playing, it’s time to step up and take action. There are far too many threats to this brand, and all of them want this show to be something other than what it’s supposed to be. Last week, I sent a clear message to Malcum Jones that I’m not someone he can fuck with. That man’s ego is absolutely insane and it’s time someone brought him back down to Earth. Slamming that monitor over his head was extremely rewarding, and come Bloodsport when both of us are locked in an Electrified Steel Cage of Death, I’ll rid this place of Malcum for good.
Crowd: FUCK YOU CHARLIE! FUCK YOU CHARLIE! FUCK YOU CHARLIE! FUCK YOU CHARLIE! FUCK YOU CHARLIE! FUCK YOU CHARLIE!
Charlie Marr: My sights are firmly set on winning that EAW Championship and once I set myself on something, I will get it. There is a lot riding on the match at Bloodsport, and Veena Adams has promised me victory. She knows that I deserve a world championship and to be the face of this company. For awhile now, I’ve been the face of Voltage, and nobody can argue with that. No one has been able to do what I do on this brand, and that is get everyone up and fucking reacting. I’m must-see TV, and no one gets more buzz than me. I know motherfuckers are jealous of that, and of all the heat I generate, but I’m ‘Main Event Marr’ for a fucking reason. If it’s the last thing I do, I will beat Malcum for that championship and when I have that belt, with Veena by my side and Jordie on my arm, things will change. It will be absolutely impossible for everyone to ignore me and my dominant streak will continue to carry on for the entire duration of this season. Voltage is my show. This is my brand. Right, Jordie?
(The blonde smiles sweetly at Charlie and nods her head, because obviously Jordie agrees with everything her man has to say.)
Jordie Ripley (off-microphone): Of course baby.
(Charlie goes to talk again but “Pray For Em” by Meek Mill begins to blast across the PA system. The fans erupt as the EAW Champion comes out. Malcolm Jones flashes everyone a cocky smirk and raises his title belt in the air. Malcolm slings the championship over his shoulder and starts making his way down to the ring. He gets inside, snatches the microphone from Charlie, and motions for his music to cut.)
Malcolm Jones: Shut the fuck up. Damn. Every time you out here runnin’ your mouth, people automatically change the channel. This ‘Main Event Marr’ bullshit you got going on just doesn’t cut it, my guy. The entire world is sick of listening to your repetitive psychobabble week after week. You never really bring anything interesting to the table. There’s a reason no one takes you seriously, and why Rex is gunna beat your ass later, and that’s because you’re the last person on this roster who deserves to be in the main event picture. You got your title shot because your right wing views on the world of professional wrestling line up with the distorted vision a MAGA bitch who’s been given a little too much power by her rapist of an uncle has. Breh, you try so hard to come across as savage, and as some heavy hitter, and while every once in a blue moon you make a point or two, what it all boils down too is you’re not taken serious. You’re not considered a threat to anyone, not even to the hoes you wanna go hard on. Bitches who time and time again verbally and physically slap the shit outta you every time they’re placed in a match with you.
(Malcolm shakes his head.)
Malcolm Jones: You’re nothing but a bitch and a coward, attacking me from behind last week while at least your dumb cock sucking dizzy bitch had the balls to look me in my eyes. This whole alliance thing you got going on with Veena is bound to implode once she realizes you’re worse than Viz is. I have tried and tried to give you the benefit of the doubt, and entertained you, and all you’ve done is further proven that you don’t belong inside the ring with me. I thought for sure you were gunna rise to the occasion, and step up, but all you’ve proven to be is a let down. You’re never gunna go any further than where you are right now, and that’s a fact. You hate to see it, because back in NEO you truly coulda been somebody. You’re a stagnant piece of shit, and at Bloodsport when you can’t attack me from behind or let your bitch do your job, you’re gonna see why I’m the centerpiece of Voltage… why I’m the real main event of this place.
(Charlie starts to reply, but Malcolm hauls off and decks him… catching Charlie right on the jaw with an absolutely vicious right hand! Charlie hits the mat and Jordie lets out a startled cry.)
Malcolm Jones: Pussy.
(Malcolm drops the microphone as “Pray For Em” by Meek Mill hits the PA system once again. Malcolm climbs out of the ring and jumps down to the floor, holding the EAW Championship up in the air. Jordie is comforting Charlie, fussing over him, while the camera catches Charlie’s cold blue eyes narrowed in Malcolm’s direction. Voltage fades to commercial.)
(Commercial break for Sterilite totes featuring El Landerson. They come in many shapes and sizes, and are perfect for storage! The lid on one of the totes flies off and Landerson jumps out! Here comes the boom! :wow:)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts to the ring. The first match of the night is about to get underway. Desmond Black is already in the ring, waiting to face his future Hall of Fame opponent. The excitement inside the building is at an all-time and Bella Braxton, the Voltage ring announcer, looks a little emotional.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Bella Braxton: ALREADY IN THE RING… FROM I DON’T REALLY CARE WHERE… PLEASE WELCOME DESMOND BLACK!!!!
Rich Russillo: Well that’s an interesting reaction considering this man had a pretty good match with Cepheus St. Claire last week, James.
James Peters: From what I’ve been told, Desmond was more than ready for that match last week but as soon as he found out he would be facing The Woogieman this week, he shit himself.
Rich Russillo: :usure:
James Peters: I mean…
Rich Russillo: Bruh. You lie lie.
James Peters: Come on. Woogie got a man arrested last week. He’s intimidating.
Rich Russillo: No one is arguing over that fact, but Desmond Black is a true professional. I’m sure he will be ready for this match.
(“If Ya Smell” By Adam Massare begins to play and the crowd erupts with the loudest ovation ever heard before in an EAW arena.)
Bella Braxton (with tears in her eyes): AND HIS OPPONENT… FROM JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, WEIGHING IN AT A SEXY 260 POUNDS… HE IS THE LIVING LEGEND… THE TRUE MAIN EVENT… THE BIG BOOGIE BHAMPION… HE IS THE FATHER OF MY FUTURE CHILDREN AND HE COULD GET ME PREGNANT RIGHT NOW… HE IS THE WOOGIEMAN!!!! OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!
James Peters: Damn. I think Bella got into the henny before the show.
Rich Russillo: That introduction was a little extreme.
(The Woogieman walks on stage and takes a minute to soak in the crowd’s reaction. It’s truly something special when the actual GOAT of Elite Answers Wrestling graces the EAW Universe with his presence. Woogie walks down to the ring and gets inside, eyeing up Desmond. Desmond has no reaction, and Woogie poses for the crowd, basking in his own glory. He’s such a treasure and everyone is taking pictures of him while he’s posing.)
James Peters: HEY! DESMOND BLACK JUST ATTACKED WOOGIE WHILE HE WAS ON THE TURNBUCKLE!
Rich Russillo: THAT RAT BASTARD!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: DESMOND RIPS WOOGIE FROM THE TURNBUCKLES AND BEGINS PEPPERING HIM WITH A SERIES OF RIGHT HANDS! THIS CROWD IS EATING DESMOND ALIVE BECAUSE HE HAD THE FUCKING AUDICITY TO ATTACK THE WOOGIEMAN WHILE HE WAS POSING FOR HIS PEOPLE!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT LOOK AT WOOGIE FIGHTING BACK! WOOGIE WITH RIGHTS AND LEFTS! HE IS BRINGING THE HEAT! DESMOND IS BEING BACKED INTO THE CORNER! WOOGIE IS JUST UNLOADING ON HIM! WOOGIE BACKS UP AND TAKES OFF RUNNING!!! JUMPING CLOTHESLINE TO THE CORNER! HE GRABS DESMOND!!! BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! GET THE COVER WOOGIE!
James Peters: BUT NO! WOOGIE WANTS TO PUT ON A SHOW TONIGHT! WOOGIE GRABS DESMOND AND PLANTS HIM WITH A FLOAT OVER DDT! WOOGIE GRABBING DESMOND UP BY THE HAIR! GERMAN SUPLEX! HE PICKS HIM BACK UP! SAMOAN DROP!
Rich Russillo: WOOGIE ISN’T DONE! FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX FOLLOWED BY A FLOWING SNAP DDT! WOOGIE KIPS UP! HOLY SHIT! WHAT A FLAWLESS KIP UP! WOOGIE PULLS DESMOND UP AND HONESTLY, JAMES, THE GOAT IS PUTTING ON A CLINIC TONIGHT! WOOGIE TAKES DESMOND… HE HITS A RUNNING SWINGING NECKBREAKER!!! WOOGIE BACK UP AND THIS CROWD WANTS MORE!!!!
James Peters: WHO IS WOOGIE TO DENY THEM OF THIS FUCKING WRESTLING CLINIC! THIS IS A GODDAMN SHOWCASE! MATCH OF THE WEEK! ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME???!!!!
Rich Russillo: WOOGIE TAKES DESMOND AND WHIPS HIM ACROSS THE ROPES! HE CATCHES HIM ON THE REBOUND WITH A RUNNING THRUST LARIAT! WOOGIE DOESN’T LET DESMOND FALL THOUGH! HE CATCHES HIM BECAUSE HE IS AMAZING!!! OH MY GOD! IT’S A POWERSLAM! THAT IS THE MOST DEVASTATING POWER SLAM ON THE ENTIRE ROSTER!
James Peters: WOOGIE GRABS DESMOND UP! ANGLE SLAM! ANGLE SLAM!
Rich Russillo: THE CROWD IS GOING WILD AS WOOGIE GRABS DESMOND ONE MORE TIME AND PLANTS HIM WITH A MR. PERFECT SUPLEX PIN THAT HE TRANSITIONS INTO A CROSSFACE SUBMISSION!
James Peters: WOOGIE HITTING DESMOND WITH EVERY COMMON MOVE IN HIS ARSENAL AND DESMOND IS TAPPING! DESMOND IS TAPPING TO THE WOOGIEMAN CROSSFACE!!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. MY BAE… THE WOOGIEMAN!!!!
(“If Ya Smell” By Adam Massare hits the PA system and Woogie climbs to his feet. The referee hands him the Big Boogie Bhampionship and raises his hand in victory.)
Rich Russillo: That was an absolutely dominating performance by The Woogieman! I’m shook!
James Peters: The GOAT came out, ready to fight tonight, and he destroyed Desmond Black.
Rich Russillo: It wasn’t even close. Woogieman is a fucking legend.
(Woogie continues to celebrate his victory, and Voltage fades to the backstage area.)
(We reopen backstage, where Sofia Clarke is standing by. With her is the EAW Interwire Champion, Terry Chambers.)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time… the EAW Interwire Champion, Terry Chambers!
(Terry gives her a nod.)
Sofia Clarke: Terry, later on tonight you have a tag team match. You’re teaming up with Jesse Barlow to take on Consuela Rose Ava and the man who defeated you last week, Noah Reigner.
Terry Chambers: I’ve never really hidden my feelings for tag team matches and how much I despise them, Sofia. Me and tag matches do not get along. It’s my least favorite match for so many reasons. I just don’t like leaving my fate in someone else’s hands. I have trust issues, and I just don’t really care for people. That includes Jesse Barlow. However, I know that I need to put all that aside tonight and work with him, because we both want to beat Consuela and Noah. I came close last week to knocking off the former World Heavyweight Champion and even if this isn’t my ideal situation to face off against him again, I’ll take it. Noah wants the triple crown, and that means he is going to set his sights on my Interwire Championship eventually. He might claim that’s not his priority right now, or whatever, but if I don’t send a message to him tonight, he’s going to think that I’ll become an easy target for him. The same can be said for Consuela, because I would be doing myself a disservice if I wasn’t weary of that 24/7 Contract she carries. That’s a cash-in for any championship, and she might decide she wants to come for mine.
Sofia Clarke: Noah and Consuela could definitely end up being challengers for you in the future, but one thing’s for certain, you do have an opponent for Bloodsport. Last week, Korey Gaines was given contendership for your championship thanks to Veena Adams, all because he happened to be in a match with Tyler Wolfe when she was injured. It was decided you could pick the stipulation for the match in the spirit of ‘fairness’ and Bloodsport already has some pretty wild looking matches. The EAW Championship is being contested in an Electrified Steel Cage of Death match, while Consuela and Jesse find themselves in a ‘Fans Bring The Weapons’ match. Have you given any thought to the type of match you’d like to have at Bloodsport?
Terry Chambers: What I’m starting to realize about this show is that it’s nothing more than a glorified chess match between everyone who’s involved so far. This is the first Voltage FPV of the season, and CC and Veena have put this event together to test the roster and find out who is willing to separate themselves from the pack. Keeping all of that in mind and after talking to CC earlier today, I’ve decided that the match between Gaines and myself will be a No Disqualification Submissions Only Match.
Terry Chambers: It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to look at Korey Gaines’ body of work and see that he is nowhere close to being a submission specialist. He’s an aerialist, a risk taker, and pure mat wrestling isn’t exactly in his wheelhouse. He might be working some MMA training and whatnot into his skill set, but when all is said and done, it won’t be enough to allow him to escape me, especially when I get him ‘Locked in the Chambers.’ While this match won’t be a traditional classic since anything goes due to the overall theme of the event, the only way for the Interwire Championship to be won is to make your opponent tap out or pass out. It’s going to be a long night for Korey Gaines come Bloodsport, and I look forward to carrying this Interwire Championship well into the Fall, and beyond.
Sofia Clarke: :oh: That’s pretty smart strategy, Terry.
Terry Chambers: I worked my ass off to finally get a championship here in EAW, and I’ll be damned if I let this belt go any time soon. That’s a promise, and not just to Korey. But to Noah and Consuela, and whomever else might be thinking of coming at me for this belt. Now if you’ll excuse, I have a match to get ready for.
(Terry exits, leaving Sofia standing there with a smile on her face. The scene fades away.)

(Voltage fades back and returns to the ring. Bella is standing by.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
( ‘Jenny From The Block (Track Masters Remix)’ by Jennifer Lopez, Jadakiss, and Styles P. blares throughout the speakers with a mixed reaction from the crowd. Jenny Cien emerges from the guerilla position before making her appearance.)
Bella Braxton: FIRST! From Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, weighing in at 145 pounds…. JENNNNNNYYYYY CIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Ever since Jenny Cien signed an exclusive contract with Elite Answers Wrestling, it has brought something fresh to this company. I’m sad she’s signed to Showdown, because she definitely does not lack for ambition. I predict this woman to be on top of the EAW world in a few years from now and I am not holding back on that statement.
(After Cien hops off the turnbuckle, ‘Flying On My Own (Dave Audé Remix)’ by Celine Dion follows. The crowd positively responds with an explosive pop as Kristen Myers steps on to the stage before walking down the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT! From Aurora, Colorado, weighing in at 95 pounds… KRIIIIIISSSSSTTTENNNNNN MYYERRRSSSSSSSSSS!!!
Rich Russillo: There is no doubt Jenny CIen has shown great potential in the past few days, but this is her time to make a mark. If she walks out of this match victorious, that will set her in the right direction. However, this isn’t going to be a walk in the park for Cien, as she is facing a highly decorated athlete, Kristen Myers. Myers may be less experienced in this industry, she can bring a whole lot of fight inside the squared circle.
( DING! DING! DING! )
James Peters: The match is underway as the crowd begins to settle down to their seats. Both individuals taking their own approach against each other, quick on their feet, as they attempt to detect a flaw. These two are similar in height and styles, so it will be difficult for them to override the other.
Rich Russillo: CIEN IMMEDIATELY DRIVES MYERS INTO THE CANVAS WITH A HEADLOCK TAKEDOWN!! Myers uses her legs to trap Cien’s legs, as CIEN QUICKLY KIPS-UP AND ESCAPES THE HOLD!! Cien proceeds to run the ropes as Myers rolls up onto her feet! MYERS JUMPS UP AND LEAPFROGS OVER THE CHARGING CIEN!!!
James Peters: Cien rebounds off the ropes yet again! AND MYERS WITH A BACKWARD LEAPFROG OVER CIEN!! CIEN OFF THE ROPES FOR THE THIRD TIME!! MYERS JUMPS UP!!! DROPKICK!!! Cien holds onto the ropes as Myers is far off from connecting from that dropkick! Myers just realizing what just happened as Cien comes off the ropes!
Rich Russillo: Myers looks up and dodges Cien’s clothesline! CIEN BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND JUMPS ONTO MYERS!! HURRICANRANA!!! Myers stumbles and flips right onto her feet! AND CONNECTS WITH A BASEMENT DROPKICK TO CIEN!!!
James Peters: Both Myers and Cien have been attempting to get into each other’s head, but it seems Myers has bought herself some time with that flip followed by a dropkick. Cien rolls out of the ring as Myers recollects herself on the ropes. Cien making her way up to her feet as MYERS STEPS OFF THE GROUND!! AND DIVES OVER THE TOP ROPE!! TOPPPPPEEEE CONNNN HILLLO!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Myers showcasing her highflying skills as she gets Cien into the ring. Myers jumps onto the apron and climbs the turnbuckles as Cien turns around! MYERS JUMPS OFF THE TOP!! Cien gets out of the way as Myers lands on her feet! CIEN GOES FOR A BICYCLE KICK BUT MYERS CATCHES HER LEG AND FLIPS HER OVER!! CIEN LANDS ONTO HER FEET!! JUMPS UP!! AND CONNECTS WITH A JUMPING GAMENGIRI KICK!! CIEN BLASTING MYERS WITH A KICK TO THE EAR AS SHE SHOOTS FROM THE ROPES!! SHINING WIZARD!!! NO!!! MYERS DUCKS AND ROLLS HER UP!!
James Peters: Cien exploding out of the pin attempt as both individuals make their way up to their feet! CIEN CHARGES INTO MYERS!! MYERS DODGES IT AS SHE JUMPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE!! AND SPINS BACKWARDS INTO CIEN!!! JENNY CUTTER!! CIEN PlANTS MYERS WITH A CUTTER IN MID AIR AS SHE GOES IN FOR THE COVER!!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT!! I thought that was going to be the finish of this match, but Myers continues to stay alive. Cien thinking of her next move as Myers rests in the corner. Cien leans on the opposite corner to Myers as she appears to have something dangerous in mind AS SHE BEGINS TO RUN INTO MYERS!! MYERS WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE JAW OF CIEN!!! CIEN SHELL SHOCKED BY THAT SUPERKICK WAS MYERS RUNS THE ROPES!! AND JUMPS ONTO HER AND GRABS HER HEAD!! SATELLITE DDT!!!
James Peters: BUT CIENS HOLDS ONTO MYERS!! THE WEIGHT ADVANTAGE ON DISPLAY AS CIEN HOLDS MYERS UP IN A VERTICAL SUPLEX!!! AND DRILLS HER WITH A BRAINBUSTER!!!! SHE COVERS HER!!
Rich Russillo: MYERS GETS HER SHOULDER UP!! Cien appearing to become frustrated as she had been one step ahead of Myers two times a row and that hasn’t been enough to put her away. Cien emerging from the ground as Myers is on her knees. Cien looking down onto Myers as she yells at her. Myers smiling, adding more fuel to the fire as CIEN BLASTS HER WITH A SLAP ACROSS THE FACE!!!
James Peters: Myers looking away as she feels the aftermath of the slap. Cien telling her to look at her face and give her best. Myers begins to get up while continuing to look away. Cien now demanding for Myers to look at her as she gets up onto her feet. CIEN SLAPS MYERS!!!
Rich Russillo: MYERS GRABS HER HAND, STOPPING HER AS SHE STARES A LASER INTO HER EYES!!! CIEN INTIMIDATED AS SHE HAS UNINTENTIONALLY UNLOCKED THE AGGRESSIVE SIDE OF MYERS!!! MYERS RUNS PAST CIEN AND HANDSPRINGS INTO THE ROPES!! SHE JUMPS BACK UP AND CONNECTS WITH A KICK TO THE SIDE OF HER FACE!! CIEN REELS OUT OF THE RING AS MYERS QUICKLY GETS UP AND RUNS THE ROPES!!!
James Peters: SHE SOARS OVER THE TOP ROPE!!! CORKSCREW CROSSBODY!! CIEN INTERCEPTS WITH A DROPKICK IN MID AIR!!! WHAT A COUNTER!!! BOTH WOMEN DOWN ON THE GROUND AS THE REFEREE BEGINS TO COUNT!!
Rich Russillo: Jenny Cien rolling into the ring and sliding back out to reset the ringside count. She hoists Myers on her shoulders and carries her around the ring. Cien hangs her from the ringpost and I don’t think she has anything normal in mind! Cien climbs onto the apron and ascends the turnbuckles! Myers trying to escape the hanging position, but she can’t. CIEN IS ON THE TOP ROPE AS SHE STEPS ONTO THE RINGPOST FOR MORE HEIGHT!! WHAT THE HELL!!! SHE JUMPS UP!!! DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!!!!!!!!!!!1
James Peters: NO!!! CIEN MISSES AND CRASHES ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR AS MYERS DODGES IT!!! MYERS AVOIDING DEVASTATION AS SHE CLIMBS THE RINGPOST!!! HOW IN THE WORLD?!?!?! MYERS IS CLIMBING THE RINGPOST LIKE A MONKEY!!! SHE IS ON THE TOP OF THE RINGPOST AS SHE LOOKS BEHIND HER!!! Cien is recovering at the corner barricade area as MYERS BACKFLIPS!! AND SOARS!!!!
Rich Russillo: MOONSAULT OFF THE RINGPOST ONTO CIEN AT RINGSIDE!!! OH MY GOD!!! CIEN AND MYERS RISKING THEIR LIVES IN THIS MATCH!!! BOTH COMPETITORS SHOWING THAT THEY WILL DO WHATEVER THEY NEED TO DO TO SUCCEED!!! Both women have yet to move as the referee has already gotten to the five-count!
James Peters: The healthier Cien has entered the ring while Myers struggles to stand up! Myers using the apron to get up as the referee continues to count!!!
Rich Russillo: MYERS GETS UP!! BUT SHE IS TOO WEAK TO STAND ON HER OWN AS SHE STUMBLES TO THE GROUND!!! THE CROWD ON THEIR FEET AS THEY CHEER HER ON!!
James Peters: MYERS BEATS THE COUNT!!! MYERS CONTINUES TO STAY ALIVE AS SHE KNEELS!!! DAAAAMEEEE MASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!! THE SPIKE HURRICANRANA CONNECTS AS CIEN COVERS HER!!!
Rich Russillo: MYERS KICKS OUT!!! MYERS GETS HER SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST MILLISECOND!! CIEN CANNOT BELIEVE IT!!!! Cien drags her body towards the corner and climbs to the top turnbuckle! THIS COULD END IT FOR SURE!!! IMPLODING 450 SPLASH!!! BUT MYERS HOLDING ONTO CIEN’S FOOT, STOPPING HER FROM JUMPING OFF THE TOP. MYERS HOLDING ON FOR LIFE AS CIEN USES HER OTHER FOOT TO SMACK HER IN THE FACE!!!

James Peters: Jenny’s head went spiking off the hardest part of the ring as Myers grabs her and shoves her into the ring! Cien might be unconscious as Myers is on the top turnbuckle! WE MAY HAVE A WINNER!! MYERS STANDS ON THE TOP!!! AND FLIPS FORWARDS AND SOARS!! 630 SENTON!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD!!! MYERS’ NECK GOES CRASHING INTO CIEN’S KNEES!!!! CIEN GOT HER KNEES UP AND THAT MAY HAVE ENDED MYERS’ CAREER!! THE CROWD WENT FROM SUPPORTIVE TO CONCERNED AS MYERS CRIES IN PAIN!! The referee checking on Myers as she grabs her neck in pain! CIEN DOESN’T GIVE A FUCK!!!
James Peters: Cien is on the top turnbuckle as Myers continues to be in agony at the center of the ring! CIEN SOARS!!! 100 PERCENT SPLASH!!!!!! THE IMPLODING 450 SPLASH CONNECTS AS CIEN COVERS HER!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
(‘Jenny From The Block (Track Masters Remix)’ by Jennifer Lopez, Jadakiss, and Styles P. hits to a deafening pop from the crowd. Half of the attendance are booing for her while the other half cheers her on. With a huge smile on her face, Cien raises her hand on the top turnbuckle.)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER!!! JENNNNNY CCCCIEEENNNN!!!
Rich Russillo: What an incredible performance by these two women. We all were at a moment where Kristen Myers was closing in on a hard-fought victory, but Cien shifted gears in a heartbeat. There is a reason why she proclaims herself as “The Baddie” and that was on display in this match.
Jame Peters: Both Cien and Myers performed at their highest levels and that is how we got a highly competitive bout between these two. Throughout this match, Cien had done her homework and been one step ahead of Myers. However, Myers began to bring the fight to Cien and even though it resulted in her being unsuccessful, she displayed her resilience and tenacity and that is something you need to have in EAW. Congrats to Cien!

(Darkness shrouds the entrance before bright white lights illuminate a deviously smiling Katheryn Wicked.)
Rich Russillo: Last week, Katheryn Wicked and another impressive newcomer in Serena Riot took one another to their limit in an impromptu hardcore match that Katheryn managed to win. That match definitely got the EAW Universe talking.
James Peters: I can’t wait to see what Katheryn has for our Specialists Champion tonight!
(Katheryn skips to the ring her and slides in, crawling to the center of it, and making herself at home. She starts kicking the mat with her feet and turns her attention towards the entrance ramp.)
(A few seconds later, “Roll With Me” by Charli XCX begins to play. The crowd erupts in cheers.)
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT… FROM ORLANDO, FLORIDA… WEIGHING IN AT 110 POUNDS… SHE IS THE EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION… ANDREA VALENTINE!!!!
(Andrea walks out from behind the guerilla curtain to an absolutely thunderous ovation. She poses with her championship and a bright smile before making her way to the ring.)
Rich Russillo: I wonder who is going to step up and accept Andrea’s challenge for Bloodsport, James? So far we haven’t heard a peep from anyone, and with the roll Andrea has been on lately, it doesn’t surprise me to see the women of EAW hesitant.
James Peters: Since winning that title back at Terminus, Andrea has been solid.
(Andrea climbs into the ring and smiles, passing her championship to Bella, who is getting out of the ring.)
James Peters: KATHERYN IMMEDIATELY ATTACKS ANDREA FROM BEHIND AS ANDREA WAS HANDING THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP TO BELLA! KATHERYN LETS OUT AN EAR PIERCING SHRIEK AND SHE IS BEATING ANDREA IN THE BACK RIGHT NOW!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Rich Russillo: THE REFEREE HAS JUST CALLED FOR THE BELL AND THIS MATCH IS OFFICIAL! KATHERYN CONTINUES TO HAMMER AWAY ON ANDREA, TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE SITUATION!
James Peters: ANDREA GETS HERSELF TURNED AROUND BUT KATHERYN IS THERE TO GREET HER WITH SEVERAL KICKS TO THE STOMACH! KATHERYN STOMPING AWAY ON ANDREA AND SHE BACKS UP A FEW FEET! KATHERYN FLIES FORWARD LOOKING TO HIT A SPLASH, BUT ANDREA IS ABLE TO HOIST HER UP AND DUMP HER OVER THE TOP!
Rich Russillo: KATHERYN LANDS ON THE APRON THOUGH AND SHE HITS ANDREA IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH A FOREARM! ANDREA WHIRLS AROUND BUT KATHERYN DIVES THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE, CATCHING ANDREA WITH A SHOULDER TO THE GUT! ANDREA STUMBLES BACK AND KATHERYN QUICKLY CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE!
James Peters: ANDREA TURNS AROUND AS KATHERYN LAUNCHES HERSELF OFF WITH A FLYING CROSSBODY AND SHE HOOKS THE LEGS, GOING FOR THE FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!!!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA KICKS OUT!!
James Peters: Damn! That was a hell of a start to this match. Katheryn Wicked showed the world how dirty she’s willing to fight last week when she and Serena Riot took one another to hell and back. It seems like this week she’s come out with the same mentality, albeit in a different environment, and take out the Specialists Champion!
Rich Russillo: Katheryn is quickly back up and she pulls Andrea up by the hair! She looks to whip Andrea into the corner, but Andrea plants her feet! She takes control of Katheryn and it’s Katheryn who ends up getting thrown into the corner! Andrea now with a beautiful handspring back elbow that connects with the face of Katheryn Wicked! Andrea grabs Katheryn and pulls her into the center of the ring, seizing her by the waist and taking her down to the mat with a gutwrench slam! Andrea drops down and goes for a cover, but Katheryn rolls out of the way fairly quickly!
James Peters: The champ isn’t bothered and takes a hold of Katheryn, grabbing her by the hair and pulling her up. She drives her knee into Katheryn’s gut and hits a swinging neckbreaker that takes Katheryn to the mat. Andrea grabs the right leg of Katheryn and kicks her in the hamstring area. She follows that up with an elbow drop and gets herself in position to twist that leg by grabbing the ankle!
Rich Russillo: I wonder if this is Andrea’s way of poking at Katheryn’s story of breaking a little girl’s leg back in the day?!
James Peters: I think Andrea is trying to send a message early in this match that scare tactics and intimidation tactics don’t work on her.
Rich Russillo: Andrea continues to twist that leg, and toy with Katheryn, and I like what we are seeing from Andrea Valentine tonight. Over these past few months she has grown as a wrestler and evolved as a competitor, and has cemented herself as one of the very best in this entire company. There’s no doubt that this woman won’t be a world champion at some point, especially if she continues to handle herself with dignity and grace.
James Peters: Fanboy.
Rich Russillo: Katheryn is tough, though, and this match isn’t going to be easy for Andrea. Katheryn is fighting back, slamming her fist into Andrea’s ribcage! She’s also using the free leg to kick Andrea in the back, and that forces Andrea to finally let go! Katheryn rolls over to the ropes, and Andrea follows her, however it’s the referee who is forcing Andrea to stay back! Andrea rolls her eyes and screams at Katheryn to get up!
James Peters: Katheryn pulls herself up, finally, and lets go of the ropes. Andrea goes right Katheryn and both women engage in a traditional collar and elbow tie up! Both fight back and forth for position, and it’s not like there’s much difference in size between these two. It’s Andrea who is able to take Katheryn down to the mat, with Katheryn’s shoulders landing flat!
Rich Russillo: Katheryn lifts her shoulder, but Andrea maintains control. Katheryn fights her back up to her feet and is able to catch Andrea with an elbow. That allows her to grab Andrea by the wrist, but Andrea quickly flips forward! She grabs Katheryn’s arm and transitions it into a side headlock, but Katheryn forces her way out, and is able to slip behind Andrea! Katheryn looking for a German suplex, but eats an elbow to the side of the head for her efforts, however she is able to grab hold of Andrea and get her wrapped up in sleeper!
James Peters: Andrea drops to her knees and reaches up, grabbing Katheryn by the neck and flipping her down to the mat! What a great exchange between these two!
Rich Russillo: Katheryn brings her legs up, looking for the head scissors, but Andrea releases her and rolls back to her knees. Katheryn sits up as well and it’s Andrea who gets back to her feet first, hits the ropes, and uses her momentum to shoot forward! Katheryn is hit with a basement style dropkick to the face and Andrea goes for the cover!!!
James Peters: Katheryn gets the shoulder up!
Rich Russillo: Andrea pulls Katheryn up and whips her into the ropes. Katheryn comes back at her, and Andrea takes her down with a big boot! Andrea runs the ropes now, but Katheryn rolls out of the way and quickly gets back up! Andrea with extra momentum from the ropes, leaps up and catches Katheryn with a tilt-a-whirl headscissors takedown! Katheryn rolls forward and looks to get up, but Andrea with a drop kick to the back and Katheryn’s face slams into the turnbuckles! Andrea grabs Katheryn up and runs!
James Peters: ANDREA LOOKING FOR THE CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER TO FINISH THIS MATCH OFF, BUT KATHERYN IS ABLE TO FIGHT HER OFF! SHE SHOVES ANDREA INTO THE CORNER AND RUNS FORWARD! KATHERYN WITH A SPEAR TO THE BACK OF ANDREA AND SHE ROLLS HER UP!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA KICKS OUT!!!
James Peters: Katheryn is quickly back up and she grabs Andrea, throwing her into the corner! Katheryn with a splash onto Andrea and she grabs her, looking to throw her into the opposite corner! Andrea somehow plants her feet though and she blocks! She kicks Katheryn in the stomach and sends her into the corner! Andrea runs towards Katheryn but Katheryn gets her foot up! It connects with Andrea’s jaw and the Specialists Champion stumbles back! Andrea regains her balance and goes for Katheryn, but Katheryn jumps on the ropes, flies at Andrea, and TAKES HER DOWN WITH A NICE HURRICANRANA!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA GRABS THE ROPES AND JERKS HERSELF UP AND SHE TURNS AROUND RIGHT AS KATHERYN LOOKS TO HIT HER WITH A CLOTHESLINE! ANDREA GETS HER FOOT UP AND IT CONNECTS WITH KATHERYN’S JAW… SENDING THE NEWCOMER SPRAWLING ONTO THE MAT! ANDREA CRAWS ON TOP OF KATHERYN FOR THE COVER!!!
James Peters: Katheryn kicks out!
Rich Russillo: Andrea is the first woman back to her feet and she grabs Katheryn, and slams Katheryn’s face off the turnbuckle! She nails Katheryn with several successful knife edge chops before grabbing her by the hair and running her towards the adjacent corner! She slams Katheryn’s face off the turnbuckle again, and hits her with a few more chops! Andrea takes Katheryn and Irish whips her across the ring! Katheryn slams back first into the turnbuckles!
James Peters: HERE COMES ANDREA WITH A CARTWHEEL, HANDSPRING BACK ELBOW COMBO THIS TIME! THAT WAS NEAT! SHE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A SPINNING BACK FIRST AND THAT CONNECTS ON KATHERYN’S JAW! ANDREA RUNS TO THE CORNER AND COMES BACK AT KATHERYN FOR A THIRD TIME! FACEWASH! SHE GRABS KATHERYN AND BULLDOGS HER INTO THE MAT AND GOES FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: KATHERYN KICKS OUT!
James Peters: Andrea gets right back to work and brings Katheryn up, but Katheryn catches Andrea with a thumb to the eye! Katheryn is able to reach up and bring Andrea down with a snapmare, and she quickly rushes the ropes! Katheryn hits a seated Andrea with double knees, grabs the leg for the cover!!!
Rich Russillo: Andrea is able to kick out! Katheryn grabs the ropes and pulls herself up, and Andrea is up too! Katheryn looking to catch Andrea with a running knee, but the champ is able to side step! She grabs Katheryn and catches her with a jawbreaker! Andrea drops down and levels Katheryn with a series of punches! Katheryn covers up and Andrea rolls off, a little bit of frustration on her face.
James Peters: This was never going to be an easy match for the Specialists Champion, no matter how well she prepared. Katheryn showed everyone last week that she is tough and willing to go through hell in order to win.
Rich Russillo: Andrea grabs Katheryn and throws her into the corner. She rushes at Katheryn and nails her with a forearm! She grabs Katheryn and takes her down with a nice exploder suplex!
James Peters: Andrea opts not to go for the cover this time and she brings Katheryn up, catching her with an uppercut to the jaw, and she sends her into the ropes! Andrea leaps up and over Katheryn on the rebound taking her down with a sunset flip into a pin!
Rich Russillo: KATHERYN IS ABLE TO REVERSE THIS INTO A PIN OF HER OWN!
James Peters: ANDREA KICKS OUT!
Rich Russillo: Both women have really pushed each other so far in this match and they’re taking a few seconds to sit up. It’s the champion who sits up first and she crawls over to Katheryn. Andrea grabs Katheryn, but Katheryn fires off a stiff looking forearm that catches Andrea in the face! Andrea fires back with a forearm shot of her own! Now it’s Katheryn! ANDREA! KATHERYN! ANDREA! KATHERYN! ANDREA!
James Peters: THEY CONTINUE EXCHANGING THESE SHOTS UNTIL BOTH WOMEN ARE BACK TO THEIR FEET!
Rich Russillo: IT’S KATHERYN WHO RAKES ANDREA ACROSS THE FACE TO GAIN AN ADVANTAGE AND SHE TAKES ANDREA TO THE MAT WITH A CLOTHESLINE! ANDREA SPRINGS BACK UP THOUGH, AND KATHERYN HITS HER WITH A DEVASTATING CHOP TO THE THROAT! ANDREA GOES DOWN CLUTCHING HER NECK AND KATHERYN BEGINS STOMPING AWAY ON THE CHAMP! KATHERYN DROPS DOWN, GRABBING ANDREA BY THE HAIR, AND SLAMMING THE BACK OF ANDREA’S HEAD INTO THE MAT OVER AND OVER! KATHERYN WITH RIGHTS AND LEFTS! SHE HAS DEFINITELY COME ALIVE THESE LAST FEW SECONDS! KATHERYN NOW HAS HER HANDS WRAPPED AROUND ANDREA’S NECK AND SHE IS CHOKING HER!
Referee: ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR… F-
James Peters: KATHERYN LETS GO BUT SHE GRABS ANDREA UP BY THE HAIR! KATHERYN THROWS ANDREA IN THE CORNER AND FOLLOWS IT UP WITH HITTING A RUNNING KNEE! KATHERYN LETS OUT A SHRIEK AND SHE BACKS UP INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! I THINK SHE IS GOING TO TRY AND FINISH THIS MATCH OFF!!!
Rich Russillo: KATHERYN RUNS FORWARD AND THERE IT IS! SHINING WIZA-
James Peters: NO! ANDREA GRABBED THE ROPES AND PULLED HERSELF TO THE APRON! KATHERYN CONNECTED WITH THE TURNBUCKLES AND SHE FALLS BACK! ANDREA QUICKLY TO THE TOP ROPE NOW AS KATHERYN IS DOWN!!!
Rich Russillo: V-DAY! V-DAY! DIVING SOMERSAULT SEATED SENTON CONNECTS AND ANDREA HOOKS THE LEGS!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER… THE EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION, ANDREA VALENTINE!
(“Roll With Me” by Charli XCX begins to blast across the PA system as Andrea gets to her feet. The referee, who has been handed the Specialists Championship, gives it to Andrea before raising her hand in victory.)
James Peters: This was a nice back and forth match between these two women, who didn’t bother to sugarcoat the things they said to one another this week.
Rich Russillo: Andrea picks up another victory, and I’ll be honest. Katheryn Wicked showed us her hardcore side last week, but she’s not a bad wrestler by any means. I wouldn’t mind seeing these two women face off against another again.
James Peters: Agreed. Katheryn Wicked has a bright future here in EAW, and who knows. Maybe the next time these two face one another it’ll be for that Specialists Championship!
(Katheryn has rolled out of the ring, and is looking up at Andrea. She has a coy little smile on her face, as she checks her jaw. Andrea locks eyes with Katheryn, and it’s the newcomer who blows a kiss at Andrea before making her way up the ramp. Andrea just shakes her head, and goes back to celebrating as Voltage fades into a brief recap of Friday Night Dynasty!)
(A highlight video of Friday Night Dynasty plays. Serena Bennett and Remi Skyfire are seen battling back and forth with Serena emerging victorious. Universal Women’s Champion Kassidy Heart defeats Darcy May Morgan in what was an instant classic. Impact is seen telling Lethal Consequences he won’t be able to challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship again as long as Impact holds it if LC fails at Operation Doomsday, while Jake Smith was named the number one contender to Jack Ripley’s National Elite Championship!)
(We return to find the Golden God of Voltage, Matt Daniels, looking dreamy in white button down with the top two buttons undone and blue slacks with a brown belt and matching shoes, walking through the backstage area past the production trucks. He waves at two of the stage hands as he walks in through the double doors. He pauses just outside of his office as his cell phone buzzes. He looks down to read the message, typing a quick response, then depositing it back into his pocket before opening the door and turning on the light.)
???: Hey, Cap.
(Matt looks up to see a pair of long legs kicked up on his desk, attached to someone leaned back in his chair. Raven Roberts sits there with her fingers pressed together as though she’d been expecting him to enter just then. She has on a pair of black leather booties with ripped high waisted skinny jeans and a heather gray off the shoulder fitted top. A cropped leather jacket hangs on the arm of the chair and the Cash in the Vault briefcase sits on the desk. Raven smiles as she looks up at Matt.)
Matt Daniels: Raven? I… what are you doing in here?
Raven Roberts: Sorry for the intrusion, but it seemed like a good way to get your attention.
(Raven pulls her legs back and stands to her feet, grabbing her jacket and brushing her long dark hair back over her shoulder as she steps around the desk. She extends a recently manicured hand out to Matt.)
Raven Roberts: I don’t think we’ve actually met, yet.
(Matt reaches out and shakes her hand.)
Matt Daniels: Umm. No. I don’t believe we have. But you went through all of this trouble just to meet me? You and Rex could’ve come by any time. I don’t think—
Raven Roberts: Cap, all due respect, but Rex and I are capable of existing more than ten feet apart from each other, despite popular belief. And no, I didn’t do all this just to meet you. Specifically, I wanted your attention. You’re a busy man and not always easy to track down. Word is you weren’t even in the country part of last week.
(Matt looks her in the eyes but clenches his jaw, not wanting to reveal his private mission from last week.)
Matt Daniels: Personal matter.
Raven Roberts: *chuckles* Hmm. So you say. But I have a personal matter of my own.
(Raven leans back against the desk and grabs the briefcase, holding it in front of herself.)
Raven Roberts: Only I know when I will cash this in. I’m making sure to give it quite a lot of thought. Trying to play my cards right. Not getting trigger happy about when I use it. But until such a time, I don’t want to fade into the background. I want to keep climbing the ladder. And with that, I want a strong match at Bloodsport. I want to keep showing what I can do so that when I cash in, it’s not just the briefcase that makes me a champion.
Matt Daniels: Well, I respect that. And I’ll see what I can do. But you already laid out a challenge, didn’t you? Theron Nikolas? Shouldn’t you wait to see if he responds?
(Raven’s eyes narrow at the question. She sets the briefcase back into the desk and folds her arms over her chest.)
Raven Roberts: Theron isn’t here tonight. He no showed again. I checked with security before I came to see you.
Matt Daniels: Well, I think you need to wait and see what he says. Bloodsport is still a few weeks away. If he doesn’t answer then maybe we can visit some other—
Raven Roberts: Cut the shit.
(Matt seems startled by her words. Raven is staring a laser through him now.)
Raven Roberts: Matt, I don’t know you. But I respect you. Your career. The fact that you care about seeing Voltage be the best it can be without cheap tactics. But understand one thing, I’m far from an idiot. You left the country but on just a short trip? I know you were out trying to get Theron to return to Voltage. He’s the only draft pick so far to fully no show every episode. And he just main evented Pain for Pride. Regardless of how the match went for him, I know you want him here and on television.
Matt Daniels: Well… I… I can’t just force him to do anything. I thought for sure he’d be here tonight. But he’s a grown man. It’s not like I can make him—
Raven Roberts: You don’t have to MAKE him do anything. My point is that you have contact with him, somehow. So you reach out to him and tell him this. My challenge is still on the table for him. But he has until next week to respond. I want to face a big name. But he’s not so important that I’ll sit around and twiddle my thumbs waiting on him. If he doesn’t answer by the next episode of Voltage, then I’ll know he didn’t have the balls to face me and I’ll move on to someone else.
(Raven puts on the cropped leather jacket and grabs her briefcase. She goes to exit the room but pauses at the door.)
Raven Roberts: I’m excited to be here on Voltage. I’m glad you brought me in. But I won’t do anything by halves, know that. I’m proving a point this season. Raven Roberts doesn’t just belong in this company. She belongs at the top. And I’ll do what I have to in order to show that.
Matt Daniels: …I’ll reach out. See what I can do.
(Raven nods back at Matt before walking out, closing the door behind her.)

(When Voltage returns from break, Bella immediately raises the microphone.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Breakin’ Outta H*ll’ begins to play and the crowd immediately begins to cheer as Shortfuse PAKA walks out onto the stage with a serious expression. He begins walking down to the ring as the fans continue cheering.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring.. From Mie Province, Japan… Weighing in at 225 pounds… SHORTFUSE PAKA!!!
James Peters: It’s mind boggling to think that this man is the brother-in-law of Provençal.
Rich Russillo: Yeah. This guy is no joke, although that’s what someone like Provençal needs around him really. PAKA has been an incredibly impressive competitor since signing his own contract to EAW.
James Peters: He has, which is why I believe he’s going to win his match here tonight against someone having only her second ever match here. Speaking of which, lets get her out here now.
(‘We Own The Night’ by Hollywood Undead begins playing and the crowd immediately begins booing as Serena Riot walks down to the stage, looking around at the booing fans before focusing her attention to the ring. She then begins walking down herself, remaining focused as Bella Braxton begins speaking.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… From Cleveland, Ohio… Weighing in at 150 pounds… SERENA RIOT!
James Peters: Now while Serena Riot hasn’t been here nearly as long as PAKA, you’ve got to admit she herself is very talented as well. Despite this, I still think PAKA has this match won. He just has more experience in the ring than her.
Rich Russillo: He has experience, but we’ve seen many cases where ring experience didn’t matter in the end result. This could very well be another case of that.
James Peters: Then let’s start the match and see for ourselves.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: This match is now underway as Serena Riot stares down the intimidating Shortfuse PAKA! PAKA beginning to slowly walk towards her- BUT RIOT BURSTS OUT OF HER CORNER, NAILING FOREARM AFTER FOREARM TO THE FACE OF PAKA, ATTEMPTING TO TAKE HIM OUT EARLY ON! PAKA IS STUMBLING BACKWARDS BUT HE HAS YET TO BE TAKEN OFF HIS FEET! SERENA NOW RUNNING THE ROPES- RIGHT INTO A CLOTHESLINE! SERENA WAS JUST TURNED INSIDE OUT AND NOW SHE’S PULLING HERSELF ONTO THE APRON TO QUICKLY TRY AND MAKE SOME SPACE!
Rich Russillo: Serena had a good idea, trying to take PAKA off his feet early, but look at the man! He wasn’t just gonna lay down for her! PAKA now approaching Serena, AND SERENA PULLS HIM BY HIS HEAD, DRAGGING HIM THROAT FIRST INTO THE TOP ROPE! PAKA NOW WAS SENT STUMBLING INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS HE HOLDS HIS THROAT, MEANWHILE SERENA HAS CLIMBED TO THE TOP ROPE! DIVING CROSSBODY! SERENA CONNECTED WITH THE DIVING CROSSBODY AND MANAGED TO TAKE PAKA DOWN, THERE’S THE COVER NOW BY RIOT!
Rich Russillo: QUICK KICK OUT BY PAKA!
James Peters: Let’s be honest, there was no chance he would’ve lost that quickly! Serena now dragging PAKA to his feet, and she has her sights set outside the ring! Serena dragging PAKA by the neck- BUT HE REVERSES IT AND TOSSES SERENA INTO THE ROPES! SERENA BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES, AND THERE’S A BODY SLAM BY PAKA! PAKA HAS MANAGED TO RECOVER QUICKLY, AND ONCE AGAIN HE’S ON TOP OF THIS MATCH!
Rich Russillo: Serena now using the turnbuckles to get to her feet, but PAKA is waiting for her! PAKA charging in- BUT SERENA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, SENDING PAKA INTO THE RING POST! SERENA NOW WASTING NO TIME TO CAPITALIZE AS SHE HURRIES OVER AND STARTS CLUBBING AWAY AT THE BACK OF PAKA! PAKA NOW PULLING HIMSELF TOWARDS THE ROPES, FORCING THE REFEREE TO SEPARATE SERENA FROM HIM!
James Peters: PAKA now beginning to turn towards Serena as she charges in- RIGHT INTO A KNOCKOUT HEADBUTT! SERENA WAS JUST FLOORED BY THAT HEADBUTT BUT INSTEAD OF GOING FOR THE PIN PAKA IS USING THIS TIME TO RECOVER, AND I HAVE TO QUESTION WHETHER OR NOT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA ON HIS PART! THERE’S A VERY GOOD CHANCE THAT MAY HAVE BEEN IT!
Rich Russillo: Well no matter the reason, PAKA decided not to pin Serena, and we can’t change that now. PAKA now holding his head as he waits for Serena to get to her feet, and slowly but surely it seems like she’s managing to do just that! PAKA now lifting her up in a firemans carry, this could be it, he’s setting up for the Compact Driver! PAKA NOW CHARGING TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLES- BUT SERENA SLIPS BEHIND PAKA, BUT THIS TIME PAKA CATCHES HIMSELF BEFORE GOING INTO THE CORNER, AND NOW HE’S BOLTING RIGHT TOWARDS SERENA! RUNNING LARIAT-
James Peters: INTO THE REFEREE! SERENA PULLED THE REFEREE IN THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND, AND HE’S JUST BEEN TAKEN OUT BY A HUGE LARIAT! SERENA NOW WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! SHE’S NOW RUNNING THE ROPES! WICKED WAYS- NO! PAKA CAUGHT HER AS SHE ATTEMPTED THE CURB STOMP, AND HE HAS HER UP! WRECKING BOMB! THAT HUGE LIGER BOMB CONNECTED AND NOW SERENA’S ROLLING OUT OF THE RING!
Rich Russillo: I don’t know if it was by choice or by instinct but it doesn’t matter as the referee isn’t up to count! PAKA now beginning to feel the effects of this match so far as he holds his midsection before slowly exiting the ring, and throughout this whole time Serena has barely moved! PAKA now picking Serena up, grabbing her by the neck- AND NOW HE JUST THREW HER FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST WITH ALL OF HIS STRENGTH! PAKA PICKING HER BACK UP, AND HE DOES IT AGAIN! SERENA FOR THE SECOND TIME HAS BEEN SENT FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HER NOSE HAS BEEN BLOODIED BY THESE SHOTS TO THE RING POSTS! Serena’s trying to crawl under the ring, but PAKA manages to take her out- OH MY GOD!
James Peters: SERENA JUST SMASHED HER BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT RIGHT OVER THE SKULL OF PAKA! THE REVENGE IS WHAT IT’S CALLED, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE JUST GOT SOME BECAUSE PAKA IS BLEEDING HEAVILY FROM THE TOP OF HIS HEAD, AND HE JUST COLLAPSED! SERENA NOW GRABBING PAKA, AND SHE JUST RAMMED HIM INTO THE APRON! PAKA IS IN A LOT OF TROUBLE, BUT HE’S STILL ABLE TO REMAIN ON ONE KNEE- NEVERMIND! THE WICKED WAYS! IT CONNECTS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! SERENA NOW ROLLING PAKA INTO THE RING, AND THERE’S THE COVER AS THE REFEREE SLOWLY WAKES UP!
James Peters: PAKA GOT THE SHOULDER UP!
Rich Russillo: HOW ON EARTH DID HE DO THAT!? SURE THE REFEREE WASN’T ABLE TO COUNT AS FAST AS NORMAL, BUT THE MAN WAS HIT WITH A BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT, AND A CURB STOMP OUTSIDE OF THE RING! THERE’S NO WAY HE SHOULD HAVE SURVIVED THAT, BUT SOMEHOW HE STILL MANAGED TO KICK OUT! SERENA CAN’T BELIEVE HER EYES, SOMEHOW, AFTER ALL THAT, THIS MATCH IS STILL GOING ON!
James Peters: I can’t blame her for being upset, but you’ve got to wonder if the referee not being at 100 percent had anything to do with that. You remember how slow he counted, there’s no way PAKA would’ve survived otherwise! Serena’s now just pummelling away at PAKA, punching him in the face repeatedly before he even had a chance to move! PAKA managed to survive earlier but I don’t think he has anything left! Serena has been on top of PAKA this entire time, the end may be soon!
Rich Russillo: Looks like you’re right about that! Serena now is climbing up to the top rope, and there’s no doubt she’s planning to end this match! THE DEMON DROP- WAIT NO! PAKA GOT THE KNEES UP! HE GOT THE KNEES UP AND SERENA WAS JUST SENT STUMBLING INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, BUT NOW LOOK, PAKA IS LIFTING HER ON HIS SHOULDERS, USING EVERYTHING HE HAS LEFT, AND NOW HE’S CHARGING INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! COMPACT DRIVER!!
James Peters: BUT PAKA STILL HAS HER UP, AND HE’S CHARGING BACK INTO THE OTHER CORNER, AND THERE’S A SECOND COVER, AND PAKA DROPS SERENA IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! THERE’S THE COVER NOW, TO PUT THIS MATCH TO AN END!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… SHORTFUSE PAKA!!!
James Peters: Man what a match, Serena had PAKA beat for most of it, but somehow he was able to come back and hit not one, but two Compact Drivers!
Rich Russillo: Yeah, but you’ve got to wonder if he just got lucky or not. That match most definitely would’ve been over if Serena connected with that Shooting Star Press.
James Peters: Yeah, but she didn’t. In the end, PAKA got the better of her, and he’s the winner here tonight. Nothing can change that now.
(‘Breakin’ Outta H*ll’ begins playing as PAKA is tended to by a few officials as he is still bleeding, meanwhile Serena Riot is helped to the back by two other officials. The scene at ringside fades out.)
(The camera fades into the outside of Matt Daniels’ office. Two unknown figures, a male and a female, walk up to the door and the female knocks. A few seconds later the door opens to show Matt Daniels standing there with a puzzled look on his face.)
Matt Daniels: Oh, hello, you must be-
???: Dr. Ivan Jones, I’m Head of Serve Conditions at Hartford Institute of the Mentally Insane. This is my assistant, Melissa.
(Melissa flashes Matt a polite smile.)
Matt Daniels: Well nice to meet you Dr. Jones, Melissa. Come in, please.
(Dr. Ivan Jones and Melissa enter the office as MAtt goes back to sitting in his office chair)
Matt Daniels: So please tell me, what do you need me for?
Dr. Ivan Jones: Well I’ve come to speak to you today because I’m concerned about the well-being of the roster members currently employed here at Elite Answers Wrestling.
Matt Daniels: And why’s that?
Dr. Ivan Jones: Well let’s just say one of your signed roster members, Katheryn Rosary Wicked, is… *Dr. Jones pauses, thinking of how to phrase his thoughts* Let’s just say that she isn’t fit to be a member of society, let alone be in a community where she’s able to inflict pain or harm to other people.
(Matt flashes Dr. Jones a thoughtful look.)
Dr. Ivan Jones: When we were forced to let her go from her facility, we never expected her to go to a place and environment where she’s free to harm people to her liking. This is not what we planned and if action isn’t taken quickly, anything could happen and it could get out of yours, and our control. I’m sure you got my letter. Without risking doctor and patient confidentiality, I’m telling you that it’s probably best to heed my warning.
Matt Daniels: I did get your letter and I’d like to thank you for your concern for the Voltage roster but I assure you everything is fine.
Dr. Ivan Jones: Excuse me?
Matt Daniels: Well, so far Katheryn has fit in very well with our roster. I think it is safe to admit she isn’t so different compared to other members of our roster. To reiterate for you, Voltage is full of very different and unique personalities, that’s what makes us great, and that’s what makes this brand so entertaining.
(Matt gives a calm smile as Dr. Ivan Jones looks very confused. He looks around before beginning to speak again. Melissa fumbles through her bag and takes out a copy of the letter sent to EAW concerning Katheryn and passes it to Dr. Ivan Jones)
Dr. Ivan Jones: Look, I don’t think you understand the safety concerns for the members of your roster here. Katheryn is a very dangerous person, as stated, if you took the time to fully comprehend the letter…
Matt Daniels (Interrupting): I can reassure you, again, that I’ve read the letter thoroughly and I can say there’s nothing wrong with the situation at hand. Katheryn is just like any other person on this brand, we can’t really do anything about things she’s haven’t done here.
Dr. Ivan Jones: That’s not the point, it says it right here in the letter, “Please be aware that throughout her treatment, Ms. Wicked showed an extreme lack of empathy towards other human beings. Her actions here were often primal and extremely destructive.” I’m simply looking out for Elite Answers Wrestling before any repercussions happen. If I were you, I’d recommend moving her on to something else, it was never in our liking for her to go to more harm if that’s what we were trying to get her out of. You get it?
Matt Daniels: I get what you’re trying to say, and I understand completely. If it makes you happy I’ll keep a close eye on Katheryn and if anything happens I’ll come back to you.
Dr. Ivan Jones: Thank you, but I have to warn you, if you don’t take action soon-
(The conversation is broken by the sound of a phone ringing as both Matt and Dr. Jones look around.)
Melissa: I’m sorry it’s me, excuse me I’ll take care of this right away.
Dr. Ivan Jones: Yeah yeah make it quick, anyways…
(Dr. Ivan Jones shrugs her off and continues talking to Matt as the conversation continues. Melissa quickly walks out of the office as the camera follows her as she moves to a corner and takes out her phone and answers.)
Melissa: Hello? Hello? Is anyone there-
(Quickly a hand appears out of the shadows and grabs Melissa. Melissa is pulled into a chokehold as the figure is finally revealed as Katheryn Wicked. She gives a twisted smile before whispering in Melissa’s ear.)
Katheryn Wicked: Shhhhh… I’m here, it’s me! Quiet down, quiet down…
(Melissa’s eyes slowly close before finally going to sleep. Katheryn looks around before carefully dragging her into the shadows as the camera fades away.)
(A promotional ad for the Voltage exclusive event, Bloodsport, airs.

All that and more as Bloodsports comes to live on August 10th, 2019 from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts!)
(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the middle of the ring)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Headache” by Dark Lotus plays as Paul Joshua comes out to the stage as the crowd boos him to death. He gives a sobbing gesture as he cracks his knuckles and starts to walk to the ring)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Columbus Ohio, weighing in at 247 pounds…PAUL…JOSHUA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: This mad man… kidnapped a man’s mother.
James Peters: Yes and it’s clear to see Paul Joshua has no regrets doing so. But I think Paul has more to worry about then that I think it’s clear to see he’s ready for the Ultimate Opportunity match, and he’s coming full speed to Bloodsport deadset on winning and I don’t think his opponent, Korey Gaines is going to stop him tonight.
(Paul Joshua enters the ring and raises one hand in the air as the crowd boos him louder. As he goes to his corner “Headache” fades out. “Thunderstruck” by ACDC plays as Korey Gaines come out to the stage with a serious face. Yet he musters out a smile to highfive the crowd as he slowly makes his way to the ring)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Oklahoma City Oklahoma, weighing in at 170 pounds… THE AERIAL WONDER, KOREY…GAINES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: A lot has to be going through Korey Gaines’ mind right now. I don’t think he’s focused on his upcoming Interwire Championship match..
James Peters: Agreed, his mindset must be totally different from Paul Joshua’s. He’s wants to beat the shit out of him, he’s been waiting for this whole week and now it’s redemption time for all that’s been done to him.
(Korey Gaines makes his way to the outside of the ring as “Thunderstruck” abruptly fades away)
Rich Russillo: What? KOREY ENTERING THE RING HE’S GOING STRAIGHT FOR PAUL RAMMING HIM INTO THE CORNER! PAUL IS TRYING TO FIGHT HIM BACK BUT GAINES IS LANDING DOWN RAPID PUNCHES ON HIM! THE REF IS TRYING TO SEPERATE THEM TO LET THE MATCH START! The ref finally creating distance as he rings the bell!

Rich Russillo: KOREY HAS HEARD ENOUGH AS HE’S LANDING CLOSE PUNCHES AND KICKS ONTO PAUL- BUT PAUL IS GRABBING HIM INTO THE AIR! Korey is trying to reach out and grab him back but he can’t reach! PAUL THROWING HIM ACROSS THE RING! Korey getting up surprised BUT HE’S STILL TAKING A STAB AT PAUL RUNNING TOWARDS HIM! But Paul easily with a gut kick bringing him back a few inches.

PAUL WITH A SHOULDER THRUST KNOCKING KOREY GAINES OFF THE APRON! Korey hasn’t fallen but he’s surely off balance as Paul follows pursuit of him.
Ref: ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: And the count has started as Korey Gaines turning around as Paul is taking a run, SPINEBUSTER- NO KOREY GAINES ELBOWING THE HEAD OF PAUL JOSHUA FORCING HIM DOWN BEFORE IMPACT! KOREY WITH ANOTHER GUT KICK FOR GOOD MEASURE AS HE’S TRYING TO KEEP PAUL JOSHUA HALTED!

Rich Russillo: Paul being smart and rolling into the ring as Gaines is trying to grab the ring apron for leverage to get up! Paul I think is obviously thinking this is over right now!
Ref: SEVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Paul with a smile as he encourages the Ref to count faster. This might actually be over as Korey is up to a knee!
Ref: NINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO!
Paul Joshua: Wait what?
Rich Russillo: KOREY IS ALIVE! HE ROLLS INTO THE RING QUICKLY AND PAUL IS FURIOUS AS HE’S GOING STRAIGHT FOR HIM! HE NAILS HIM WITH AN AXE HANDLE BRINGING HIM DOWN!

Paul Joshua: :oh:
Rich Russillo: IT’S THAT DUDE THAT PAUL JOSHUA IS FRIENDS WITH! What’s his name again James?
James Peters: Jack Diddly? I don’t know but he’s coming out to the ring with urgency, he’s trying to distract Korey here as Paul is slowly getting up.
Rich Russillo: Korey is starting to realize. But after all the pain both men have put him through, I think he’s had enough no matter if his Mother is back or not!
Korey Gaines: YOU SICK FUCKS!
James Peters: KOREY QUICKLY ESCAPING THE RING IGNORING PAUL AS HE’S ATTACKING JACK DIDDLY! THAT MANS TOO SCRAWNY TO BE FIGHTING! Paul stumbling up to his feet as he watches on.

(“Thunderstruck” plays up to booming cheers as Korey Gaines quickly gets up with an excited smile as he hops up to the top rope and embraces the crowd’s cheers. Paul Joshua is then seen inside the ring furious as he looks around as if this is just a dream)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IS YOUR WINNER, KOREY GAINES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: GAINES HAS DONE IT! THE FIGHTING SPIRIT THAT HE’S KNOWN FOR AND THE MOTIVATION TO KICK PAUL JOSHUA’S ASS HELPED HIM TO THE WIN! HE GOT REVENGE ON PAUL JOSHUA! :mjcry:
Rich Russillo: This is certainly unsettling for Paul Joshua, man said he was undefeated and everything, can’t wait to see what excuse he comes up with. But congratulations to Korey Gaines but I pray to gawd that nothing like this ever happens again. We may be sickening but this is just sad, I didn’t sign here to cry :mjcry:
(The final shot is of Korey Gaines quickly rolling out of the ring as Paul Joshua tries to grab a hold of him. He raises his arms in the air one last time and radiates a smile as the camera fades away.)
(Voltage cuts backstage and opens up inside of Matt Daniels’ office. The only thing about this scene that doesn’t quite make any sense is the fact Matt is nowhere to be found. Sitting behind the Co-Commissioner of Voltage’s desk is none other than the good doctor, the stunning Dr. Bethany Blue. She is on Matt’s iMac, and seems to be looking at things she has no business seeing. In fact, as the camera zooms in we see she’s looking at a medical profile for fellow EAW newcomer, Jalyn Garcia. Dr. Blue scrolls through the profile, stopping every now and then to write some notes down on a legal pad. Her handwriting is sloppy and illegible, exactly like you would expect from a doctor, but she seems to be able to read what she’s writing.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Jalyn Garcia, you intrigue me so. All of five foot ten and a buck fifty, soaking wet I’m sure. What stunted your growth? I just know there has to be something wrong with you, even if it doesn’t necessarily show on the surface. You have such a cute little face, and those perfect, luscious locks.
(She shakes her head and continues making notes.)
(A few seconds pass and there is a knock on the door. Dr. Blue looks up, brilliant smile on her face. She slams the iMac shut and sits up straight in the chair.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: COME IN!
(The door opens and in walks Jalyn Garcia. Upon seeing Dr. Blue he immediately grows suspicious.)
Jalyn Garcia: Where’s Daniels? I was told he wanted to speak to me about the ‘Ultimate Opportunity’ match at Bloodsport.
(Dr. Blue stands up and clasps her hands in front of her.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: It wasn’t Matt Daniels who summoned you to this office, it was me.
Jalyn Garcia: You?
Dr. Bethany Blue: Absolutely! A couple of weeks ago when you walked into the trainer’s room, hurt ribs, banged up from your match, there was just something about you that drew me in.
(Dr. Blue steps out from behind the desk. Jalyn takes a step back, obviously wanting nothing to do with the good doctor. She removes a small flashlight from the pocket of her doctor’s coat and switches it on. She lunges for Jalyn, looking to grab him by the throat, but he side steps her with ease. Unfortunately, that puts Dr. Blue close to the door and she kicks it shut.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: :mjlit: I’m curious. Let me check your eyes. You see, Jalyn. I care about EVERYONE here on Voltage, and one by one I’m going to make sure that all the men and women of this brand are healthy. I look at you and I see a skinny little runt, someone who shouldn’t be able to run the ropes and put his tiny little body through the torture that we go through as professional wrestlers. Despite what you lack in size and power, you have a stunning physique and possess absolutely incredible athletic ability. Truly, you’re a marvel. I need to look you over. I need to feel you. I need to listen to your heart beat. I need to bend you over and check you out. I have so many questions for you Jalyn.
Jalyn Garcia: :whoa: You’re a crazy bitch, pardon my french.
(Dr. Blue steps towards Jalyn, who dodges her again, and back and forth they go, circling one another.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Have you been taking your vitamins, young man?
(Dr. Blue lunges towards Jalyn, catching him with a running knee to the gut! Jalyn’s back hits the wall and Dr. Blue grabs him by the hair. She takes a whiff of his glorious locks and sighs.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: I smell Vitamin A! Vitamin A is so important for growth! Jalyn! Did you know that Vitamin A helps your skin glands make a substance called sebum? Sebum is a natural moisturizer for your scalp that will keep your hair healthy. Clearly you aren’t suffering any kind of hair loss.
(Jalyn muscles Dr. Blue off of him and pushes himself off the wall. Dr. Blue slams against Matt’s desk, and she clutches her heart.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: I bet you eat carrots, and spinach, and kale! All of those foods are high in beta-carotene.
(Dr. Blue closes her eyes, breathing in happily.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Beta-carotene is turned into Vitamin A. I bet you didn’t know that. I knew that though and that’s because I’m a doctor, Jalyn. I truly want what’s best for you.
Jalyn Garcia: I think you need to stay as far away from me as possible if you know what’s good for you. I didn’t come to EAW to play games with people like you. I came to forge my own legacy.
(An unreadable look crosses Dr. Blue’s face.)
Jalyn Garcia: I had a minor setback last week, getting pinned by a former PURE Champion, but in my short time here, I have shown that I can stand toe to toe with anybody. A lot of people don’t see me as much, and that’s their right because we are all entitled to our opinions, but I will continue showing everyone how wrong their opinions are. My raw talent has very little to do with my size, and if you want to test me, then you can step inside the ring with me. The fact is, Bloodsport is coming up and there is what’s being called an ‘Ultimate Opportunity’ on the line, and I want in that match. However, I don’t feel like waiting until then to get inside the ring again.
(A coy smile spreads across the glossy lips of Dr. Blue.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: You want to step inside the ring with me, Dr. Bethany Blue? I can assure you that while I have nothing but the utmost concern about your health, all bets are off once we step between those ropes. I have no problem hurting you in order to help you, pretty boy.
Jalyn Garcia: Don’t make the mistake of undermining my me, my talent, and my mentality. I’m not our average rookie because I’m being trained to be the absolute best. Both of us are just getting started here, but that’s where the similarities end. I have longevity and staying power, and I’m the future of this sport. You’re a phony, fraud, and I’m sure you’ll end up fizzling out.
Dr. Bethany Blue: If that’s what you really think, then I guess we will have to step inside the ring together and dance. I’m not here to play games either, Jalyn. I’m here to make you and everyone else in EAW better. So feel free to meet me next week, and you’ll see, because in addition to being a real doctor, I’m also a real wrestler.
(Jalyn shrugs his shoulders as if to say ‘we’ll see’ and he exits the office. Dr. Blue takes a deep breath as the door slams shut leaving her alone inside. She twirls a strand of hair around her manicured finger and shakes her head.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: I’m going to have fun with you, Jalyn. Come next week, the doctor is in.
(The scene fades to black.)
(Commercial break for KFC’s disgusting new heart attack inducing menu item, the Chicken Cheeto Sandwich featuring Xander Payne. EAW’s Best Body away winner is seen chowing down, while Myles looks on, extremely disappointed.)
(The camera cuts to Bella, standing in the middle of the ring)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is to determine the number one contender for the NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!
Bella Braxton: And it is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Mob Ties” plays to booming boos as Cepheus St. Claire comes out to the ring shortly followed by Lonnie Delmonty. Delmonty warms him up as he slowly makes his way to the ring soaking in the boos with a very confident face engraved on him.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, residing in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, weighing in at 230 pounds…THE TREACHEROUS ONE, CEPHEUS…ST…..CLAIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Cepheus sure has a bone to pick with his opponent tonight Kai Zolomon. As the blood boils for each of these men in this match they’ve become more ready to get a hold of each other over this past week.
Rich Russillo: They both know what’s at stake and what it takes to get there, but only one of them can get out standing, the question is who will it be out of these blood thirsty guys?
(Cepheus enters the ring as Lonnie stands on the apron pep-talking him and patting him with a towel as he warms up and “Mob Ties” fades away. “Gods and Monsters (Rock Cover)” by Lana Del Ray plays up to cheers as Kai Zolomon makes his way to the ring. He does a little spin and admires the crowd before walking down the ramp)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Melbourne Australia, weighing in at 231 pounds…THE KILL SWITCH, KAI…ZOLOMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Kai Zolomon has been incredible since coming to Voltage, Rich.
Rich Russillo: But will his reign of terror end with Cepheus St. Claire-
James Peters: Cmon I wouldn’t call it a reign of terror.
Rich Russillo: So much blood :mjcry:
(Kai Zolomon enters the ring and quickly jumps up onto the top rope to raise his arms into the air. He hops down and takes a look at Cepheus St. Claire before sticking up the middle finger at him to the crowd’s cheers. Cepheus has had enough)
James Peters: CEPHEUS RIPPING THE TOWEL AWAY FROM LONNIE DELMONTY! HE THROWS THE TOWEL IN THE FACE OF KAI ZOLOMON!

Kai still holding onto the legs here, LEG DDT! Cepheus’ leg snaps back as Kai looks on with a wicked intent. Cepheus trying to roll out of the ring but Kai is dragging him back to the center.

CEPHEUS PUSHING KAI IN MID AIR, KAI FLYING OUT OF THE RING AND ONTO THE FLOOR! Cepheus is on the apron now as Kai is clutching his back in pain as he turns over. THIS DOESN’T LOOK GOOD CEPHEUS TAKING A RUN, DOUBLE FOOT STOMP OFF THE APRON ONTO THE BACK OF KAI ZOLOMON!
James Peters: Both men are on the ground but Cepheus is quickly getting up and bringing Kai up. CEPHEUS WITH AN ELBOW! CEPHEUS ISN’T STOPPING AS HE RAMS HIS ELBOW INTO THE HEAD OF KAI ZOLOMON! I THINK I SEE BLOOD DON’T YOU RICH?
Rich Russillo: I do! :lupe:
James Peters: Kai still not going down as Cepheus is still nailing him down- KAI PUNCHING CEPHEUS IN THE GUT STOPPING HIM IN HIS TRACKS! Kai lifting him up into a fireman’s carry position, KAI SLAMMING CEPHEUS’ BACK ONTO THE RINGPOST! Both men falling to the ground as the Ref can’t wait any longer for them to get back into the ring!
Rich Russillo: The count starting as both men are barely even keeping their eyes open. Kai first to show signs of life as he’s grabbing the apron trying to drag himself up to his feet before Cepheus St. Claire does. But look at Lonnie Delmonty over there, he’s freaking out as Kai is getting up quicker than Cepheus, Kai taking a look at him before bringing up Cepheus.

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER, CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: THAT WAS SO WOAT!
Rich Russillo: Cepheus pulls out the win by a thread but don’t count Kai Zolomon out, that man is world championship material and a screw job like this won’t count him out of any title picture.
James Peters: I agree but it looks like we’ve found a New Breed Number One Contender in the form of Cepheus St. Claire
(Kai Zolomon is still arguing with the Referee as the final shot is of Lonnie Delmonty raising the hand of Cepheus St. Claire on the ramp as Voltage fades elsewhere.)
(Voltage fades into a promotional video.)
(SCREEN BAR – “Earlier Today”)
(Jesse Barlow is seen walking backstage at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. He stops in front of a lockerroom labeled “Consuela Rose Ava & Ms. Extreme” and tests the door handle. It appears to be locked, but that doesn’t really deter Jesse. He removes his wallet from the back pocket of his jeans, takes his credit card out, and slips it through the door. He’s able to loosen the lock, and basically break into the Ava sisters’ lockerroom, and he shuts the door behind him. The sisters have their stuff placed neatly around the room, and due to their different styles it’s easy to distinguish what stuff belongs to Consuela and what belongs to Ms. Extreme. Jesse heads over a set of Louis Vuitton luggage, and doesn’t hesitate to reach inside Consuela’s designer purse. He pulls out a Chanel wallet and opens it up, finding exactly what he’s looking for.)
Jesse Barlow: Chloe Olivia Fernandez-Ava.
(Jesse removes Chloe’s social security card and slides it inside his own wallet. He replaces Consuela’s wallet in her purse and slips out of the lockerroom. Jesse heads back down the hallway and out of sight.)
(We jump cut and see Jesse standing in a remote area outside the area, on his phone. He is holding Chloe Ava’s card in his hands. The conversation is picked up as he rattles off the last four digits of her social security number.)
Jesse Barlow: Yupp, that’s right. *Jesse pauses for a second.* I know this isn’t my line of work anymore, but you were always one of the people I could trust. I’m trying to use my resources for good now, and no innocent child deserves to have a life like I did. I’m telling you, this kid deserves better than the cunt she has for a mother. While I don’t consider Consuela an active parent since she plainly stated that Chloe is her top priority ONLY when she’s not on the road, the child still refers to her as ‘mother.’ After Bloodsport is in the books, there won’t be a Consuela Rose Ava for Chloe to see on a part-time basis and that’s why I think it’s important we find the child’s biological father.
(There is another pause.)
Jesse Barlow: Yes. Start by running the social security number and finding who the biological mother is. After that, find every single man she was associated with. That should help us get to the bottom of this. I bet you anything this man doesn’t even know he has a child out there. *Pause.* Right. I’ll touch base with you on Wednesday.
(Jesse disconnects the call and runs a hand through his hair. He might have left his previous life behind, but there’s no denying that still having shady ass contacts comes in handy.)
Jesse Barlow: An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind, Consuela. YOU shouldn’t have fucked with Jesse Barlow.
(Jesse pockets his phone and begins heading back towards the building. The scene fades to black.)
(A highlight video of Saturday Night Showdown plays. The main event match between The Visual Prophet and Felix Hartley completely imploded when the legendary Amber Keys made her presence felt. She would show up and strip Felix bare, announcing that their New Breed Championship match at Midsummer Massacre would be a Barbed Wire Bra and Panties match! Elsewhere, Cameron Ella Ava defeated Constance Blevins, while Jamie O’Hara defeated Xander Payne in a match that involved some fuckery!)
(Voltage returns to the ring and the camera centers on Bella.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS A TAG TEAM MATCH AND IT’S SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Don’t Stop’ by InnerPartySystem hits and the crowd begins to cheer as Noah Reigner makes his way out onto the stage. He waits as ‘We Appreciate Power’ by Grimes hits, and the crowd continues cheering as Consuela Rose Ava walks out onto the stage. The two then walk down to the ring together as Bella Braxton begins speaking.)
Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring… The team of NOAH REIGNER, AND CONSUELA ROSE AVA!!!
James Peters: On paper, this just may be the better team going off of accomplishments alone. Consuela is the current 24/7 Contract holder, and Noah just recently entered Pain for Pride as the World Heavyweight Champion, which is a huge accomplishment, even if he didn’t win the match.
Rich Russillo: That is true, not only that, but Noah even defeated Terry just this past week. I’ll admit, this team sounds pretty intimidating with all of that considered, but Terry and Jesse. Man. I still believe they could win this match.
(‘The Hounds of Anubis’ by The Word Alive hits and the fans immediately start booing as Jesse Barlow walks down to the stage. Unlike the previous team he doesn’t wait for his partner, and instead walks down the ramp as ‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons hits, which causes the fans to start cheering as Terry Chambers walks down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents.. The team of JESSE BARLOW, AND THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION, TERRY CHAMBERS!!!
Rich Russillo: Why do I think these two are gonna win? Well for starters, while Jesse is an incredible athlete on his own, just look at Terry. Not only is he 6’7, and almost 300 pounds, but he’s not stupid. I’m sure he knows what he did wrong against Noah, and he’ll be sure to not make the same mistakes.
James Peters: Yeah, but you’ve got to wonder if his mind is in the right place. Not only does he have to think about his match at Bloodsport coming up against Korey Gaines, but Consuela is the 24/7 Contract Holder, just like I said before. And just like she said, Terry’s title isn’t safe as long as she has that contract, just like every other Champion in the company.
Rich Russillo: Even if that’s the case, there’s still Jesse Barlow. We all know Jesse and Consuela have had quite the feud, and I’m sure Jesse would like to be able to defeat Consuela here tonight!
James Peters: Well, let’s see what happens!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And this match is underway- AND CONSUELA GOES RIGHT AFTER JESSE BARLOW! THE BELL HAS JUST RUNG AND ALREADY THE 24/7 CONTRACT WINNER IS TAKING IT TO JESSE! JESSE NOW MANAGING TO SHOVE CONSUELA OFF OF HIM BEFORE CHARGING AT HER- BUT CONSUELA THROWS HIM OUT OF THE RING! WHAT A START TO THIS MATCH! CONSUELA NOW FOLLOWING BEHIND, AS SHE BEGINS DELIVERING FOREARMS STRAIGHT TO THE FACE OF BARLOW! CONSUELA NOW SLAMMING JESSE’S FACE INTO THE APRON BEFORE ROLLING HIM BACK INTO THE RING!
Rich Russillo: Consuela now clubbing at the back of Jesse just as he was using the ropes to get to his feet, and he’s in deep trouble right now guys! The match has just started yet Consuela has been all over him! Jesse now grabbing onto the ropes, forcing the referee to separate the two! Jesse now trying to make his way towards his corner, BUT THERE’S CONSUELA CHARGING RIGHT BACK AT HIM- RIGHT INTO AN ELBOW! JESSE NOW WITH A SNAPMARE, AND THERE’S A DROPKICK RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF CONSUELA’S HEAD! JESSE NOW WITH THE FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!
James Peters: QUICK KICK OUT BY CONSUELA! Jesse now making it back to his corner, and there’s the tag to Terry! Terry now waiting for Consuela to get to her feet, and look at what we have here. The 24/7 contract holder and the Interwire Champion in the ring together! Consuela now back to her feet and she’s immediately going right after Terry this time, BUT TERRY IS QUICKLY ABLE TO SHOVE HER RIGHT TO THE GROUND! CONSUELA QUICKLY GETS TO HER FEET- BUT TERRY TAKES HER RIGHT BACK DOWN WITH A LARIAT! Terry now lifting her up, and it looks like he’s trying to end this early! T-5-
Rich Russillo: NO! CONSUELA LANDS ON HER FEET, AND THERE’S A JAWBREAKER, DROPPING TERRY TO A KNEE! CONSUELA NOW WITH THE TAG TO NOAH, AND THERE’S A RUNNING KNEE RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF TERRY! TERRY’S DOWN, AND NOW THERE’S A KNEEBAR BY NOAH! TERRY’S IN TROUBLE! TERRY’S STRUGGLING, BUT HE MANAGED TO GRAB THE ROPES, AND NOAH HOLDS ONTO THE SUBMISSION UNTIL A COUNT OF FOUR! AFTER THAT SHORT TIME NOAH ALREADY HAS TO RELEASE THE HOLD, BUT EVERY SECOND COUNTS IN A SUBMISSION, AND THE DAMAGE JUST MAY HAVE BEEN DONE TO TERRY WHO’S NOW USING THE ROPES TO GET TO HIS FEET!
James Peters: Noah now with a kick to the midsection of Terry, and there’s an irish whip into the corner! Noah now charging in at Terry- BUT TERRY BLASTS RIGHT OUT OF THE CORNER WITH A CLOTHESLINE! TERRY JUST TOOK OUT NOAH, AND NOW HE’S PICKING HIM UP, LOOKING FOR A POWERBOMB, BUT NOAH IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO FIGHT OUT OF IT! AND HE’S ABLE TO! NOAH FOUGHT OUT OF TERRY’S GRASP, AND HE JUST SWEPT TERRY’S LEG OUT FROM UNDER HIM! NOW LOOK, NOAH’S GOT AN ANKLE LOCK APPLIED ON THE SAME LEG FROM BEFORE, HE’S TRYING TO DESTROY TERRY’S LEG!
Rich Russillo: Well it’s not a bad idea, Terry’s huge! This is probably the best way to take the man down! Terry once again has those ropes, and now he’s trying to get Jesse back into this match! AND THERE’S THE TAG TO JESSE- KILLSHOT! WAIT NO! JESSE GOT OUT OF THE WAY, AND NOW HE’S RUNNING THE ROPES! CURB STOMP! THE RUNNING CURB STOMP CONNECTS, AND THERE’S A COVER BY JESSE!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT BY NOAH! Jesse now working on the arms of Noah, holding his arm out, and delivering strong elbows to the shoulder! Noah now on a knee, and he’s beginning to fight out of the hold, delivering blows to the midsection of Jesse, and now Noah is free!
James Peters: Noah now with a forearm to the face of Jesse, but Jesse responds with one of his own! Noah now with another forearm, and Jesse responds once more! Now Noah! Now Jesse! Noah! Jesse! Noah! Noah! Noah’s got the upperhand, and now he runs the ropes, SENDING JESSE OVER THE TOP ROPE, RIGHT OUT OF THE RING! JESSE’S GETTING TO HIS FEET AS NOAH RUNS THE ROPES! SUICIDE DIVE! HE’S NOT FINISHED YET! NOAH BACK INTO THE RING AS JESSE ONCE AGAIN GETS UP, AND THERE’S A SECOND SUICIDE DIVE!
Rich Russillo: Noah now rolling Jesse back into the ring as he makes his way onto the apron! SLINGSHOT SPEAR! NOAH NOW CHARGING AT TERRY, AND THERE’S A JUMPING KNEE, TAKING HIM OFF OF THE APRON! NOAH NOW PICKING JESSE UP, AND THERE’S A FALCON ARROW! WHAT A SERIES OF ATTACKS BY NOAH, AND THERE’S THE COVER BY THE ASSAULT RIFLE!
Rich Russillo: JESSE KICKS OUT!
James Peters: Jesse somehow managed to survive but Noah now is aiming to put this match to an end! He’s waiting in his corner for Jesse to get to his feet, I think we all know what he’s setting up for! Jesse’s trying his best to pull himself up with those ropes, but I don’t think he realizes what he has in store for him! Jesse, turn around! KILLSHO-
Rich Russillo: ABOLISHER! THE SPEAR CONNECTS! JESSE JUST HIT A SPEAR TURNING NOAH INSIDE OUT! I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE HE GOT THAT KIND OF ENERGY FROM AFTER EVERYTHING NOAH JUST DID, BUT NEITHER MAN HAS GOTTEN TO THEIR FEET AFTER THAT SPEAR! JESSES PULLING HIMSELF TOWARDS NOAH, AND THERE’S THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: NO! NOAH GOT THE SHOULDER UP! JESSE CAN’T BELIEVE HIS EYES, NOAH SOMEHOW MANAGED TO GET THE SHOULDER UP AFTER THAT HUGE SPEAR!
James Peters: Jesse now pulling himself up once again, and he’s staring down at Noah! Noah’s finally beginning to move, but this may be it! Noah’s on a knee, AND JESSE CHARGES IN! NEVERMORE- NO! NOAH MOVED OUT OF THE WAY, BACKING UP INTO THE ROPES, BUT JESSE CHARGES AT HIM ONCE AGAIN- BUT NOAH PULLED THE ROPES DOWN, SENDING JESSE OUT OF THE RING! NOAH NOW CRAWLING TOWARDS HIS CORNER, THERE’S THE TAG! THE TAG HAS BEEN MADE AND CONSUELA HAS IMMEDIATELY DROPPED OFF THE APRON IN PURSUIT OF JESSE-
Rich Russillo: BIG BOOT BY TERRY, STOPPING CONSUELA RIGHT IN HER TRACKS! BUT LOOK AT NOAH! SUICIDE DIVE! SUICIDE DIVE TAKES NOAH TERRY OUT, AND CONSUELA HAS MANAGED TO GET BACK TO HER FEET, BUT SO HAS JESSE! JESSE AND CONSUELA NOW ARE BRAWLING, AND NOW THE REFEREE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO BEGIN HIS COUNT!
Rich Russillo: Consuela now slamming Jesse’s face into the apron, and it looks like she’s got the better of him but that’s a count of three!
James Peters: Jesse now with a forearm to the face of Consuela, and it looks like he’s beginning to get back into this match, and now Jesse throws Consuela back into the ring at a count of six! Jesse now with another forearm as Consuela was finding her footing! REPENT- NO! CONSUELA CAUGHT HIS ARM, AND THERE’S A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION OF JESSE! THERE’S A SECOND KNEE! AND A THIRD KNEE! AND LOOK, SHE’S SETTING UP THE SUELA LOCK! SHE’S SETTING IT U-
Rich Russillo: REPENT! THE REPENT CONNECTS JUST BEFORE CONSUELA WAS ABLE TO GET JESSE TO THE GROUND! CONSUELA IS OUT OF IT, AND THERE’S ANOTHER COVER BY JESSE!
Rich Russillo: AND THIS TIME CONSUELA GETS THE SHOULDER UP, AND LOOK! NOAH IS BACK ON THE APRON! NOAH’S BACK BUT WAS HE TOO LATE! CONSUELA MIGHT’VE USED EVERYTHING SHE HAD LEFT TO KICK OUT, AND I THINK JESSE WANTS TO FINISH THIS MATCH ONCE AND FOR ALL, BUT LOOK! JESSE’S CHARGING RIGHT AT NOAH- NO! SLINGSHOT SPEAR BY NOAH ONCE AGAIN! IT LOOKS LIKE JESSE WANTED TO TAKE NOAH OUT BUT NOW HE PAID DEARLY, AND HE’S DRAGGING CONSUELA INTO HIS CORNER, THERE’S THE TAG! NOAH TAGGED HIMSELF IN!
James Peters: NOAH NOW, THROWING JESSE SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE CORNER- BUT THERE’S THE TAG NOW BY TERRY! TERRY’S NOW THE ONE TAGGING HIMSELF IN, AND NOW IT’S THE TWO MEN WHO JUST HAD AN INCREDIBLE MATCH ONCE AGAIN IN THE RING WITH EACH OTHER! TERRY NOW CHARGING AT NOAH FOR A LARIAT- BUT NOAH DUCKED IT! NOAH NOW RUNNING THE ROPES- NO! TERRY JUST POPPED NOAH UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, AND THERE’S A TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB, BUT TERRY’S NOT FINISHED! TERRY CHARGING IN!
Rich Russillo: RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENC- NO! NOAH GOT THE KNEES UP, AND TERRY’S FALLEN TO A KNEE, REMEMBER HOW HIS LEG WAS MESSED UP EARLIER! KILLSHOT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! IT CONNECTS! NOAH WITH THE COVER ON TERRY, HE’S GONNA PUT THIS ONE AWAY!
Rich Russillo: JESSE PULLED NOAH OUT OF THE RING! WAIT! CONSUELA JUST TOOK OUT JESSE FROM BEHIND, AND NOW NOAH IS GOING BACK FOR THE COVER! CAN HE STILL WIN THE MATCH FOR HIS TEAM?
Rich Russillo: TERRY GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!
James Peters: Jesse managed to save the match for his team just at the last possible moment! Noah’s clearly frustrated he couldn’t get the match finished, but now it looks like he’s setting up to hit a second Killshot, meanwhile Consuela and Jesse is brawling outside of the ring! Terry isn’t moving though, SO INSTEAD NOAH HAS A SECOND KNEEBAR APPLIED! TERRY’S IN HUGE TROUBLE!
Rich Russillo: Terry’s gonna have to tap, there’s no way he could survive this, and this time they’re in the middle of the ring! Terry’s struggling, he can’t make it to the ropes, there’s just no way! WAIT, JESSE JUST TRIED TO PULL THE REFEREE OUT OF THE RING, BUT CONSUELA MANAGED TO STOP HIM- THE REPENT! FOR THE SECOND TIME CONSUELA HAS BEEN FLOORED BY THAT PUNCH, AND NOW JESSE HAS JUST PULLED THE REFEREE OUTSIDE THE RING!
James Peters: YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! FOR THE SECOND TIME JESSE HAS COST NOAH THE MATCH, AND NOW NOAH HAS ROLLED OUT OF THE RING, AND HE’S CHARGING RIGHT AT JESSE! KILLSHOT- NO! JESSE AVOIDED GETTING HIT WITH THE KILLSHOT ONCE AGAIN, AND NOAH’S LEG JUST CRASHED INTO THE RING POST! THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO SEPERATE JESSE FROM NOAH BUT NOW NOAH MIGHT JUST BE IN THE SAME SITUATION AS THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION!
Rich Russillo: ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY CONSUELA- NO! JESSE DUCKED IT! JESSE NOW ATTEMPTING A CLOTHESLINE, BUT CONSUELA DUCKS THAT! THE TWO NOW ARE ONCE AGAIN FIGHTING WITH EACH OTHER AS THE REFEREE IS CHECKING ON NOAH! THESE TWO ARE GONNA TAKE THEMSELVES OUT OF THE MATCH, SOMEONE NEEDS TO STOP THEM! CONSUELA JUST SEND JESSE OVER THE BARRICADE, AND NOW SHE’S JOINING HIM AND THE REF CAN’T DO ANYTHING AS THEY’RE NOT THE LEGAL COMPETITORS!
James Peters: Speaking of which it looks like Noah’s good to go! Noah now rolling into the ring- BUT HE’S IMMEDIATELY MET WITH A SERIES OF BOOTS BY TERRY! TERRY IS STOMPING ALL OVER NOAH, AND THE ASSAULT RIFLE IS IN TROUBLE ONCE AGAIN! TERRY NOW WITH AN IRISH WHIP INTO THE CORNER! RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE! IT CONNECTS THIS TIME, AND NOAH JUST COLLAPSED! This could be the end, things aren’t looking good for Noah, and Consuela is in the crowd fighting with Jesse!
Rich Russillo: Like you said, things aren’t looking good for Noah, and Terry has him up on his shoulders- NO! NOAH FIGHTS OUT OF HIS GRASP! NOAH MANAGED TO GET OUT OF TERRY’S ARMS! NOAH OFF THE ROPES- BUT TERRY CATCHES HIM! HE HAS HIM UP ONCE AGAIN! T-5! THE T-5 CONNECTS, AND THERE’S THE COVER! Wait.. Who’s that running down the ramp?
James Peters: TERRY JUST GOT HIT IN THE BACK WITH A CHAIR, AND IS THAT..? THAT’S AMURA! AMURA FROM BORA BORA! SHE JUST SMASHED A CHAIR ONTO TERRY’S BACK, BUT LOOK! HE’S GETTING RIGHT BACK TO HIS FEET, IT HAD NO EFFECT ON HIM, BUT THE REFEREE STILL HAS TO RING THE BELL!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Amura (Off Mic): YOU CANNOT BEAT KOREY! KOREY IS GREAT MAN! KOREY LET ME SISTER, AND MAKE ME FAMOUS ACTRESS!
(Suddenly ‘Thunderstruck’ hits and Korey Gaines is seen walking down the ramp, telling Amura to calm down. Clearly, this doesn’t work.)
Amura (Off Mic): KOREY GAINES WILL BEAT YOU! KOREY GAINES WILL BECOME INTERNET CHAMPION!
Korey Gaines (Off Mic): Interwire. Interwire Champion.
Amura (Off Mic): KOREY GAINES WILL-
James Peters: TERRY JUST LAID AMURA OUT WITH A HEADBUTT, AND NOW GAINES IS COMING INTO THE RING TO HELP HER- BUT NO! TERRY JUST DROPPED GAINES WITH A CLOTHESLINE! GAINES WAS JUST FLATTENED BY THAT CLOTHESLINE, AND IT’S CLEAR TERRY HASN’T TAKEN WHAT JUST HAPPENED VERY LIGHTLY! TERRY NOW, LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS ON GAINES! IT’S LOCKED IN TIGHTLY, AND GAINES IS FADING! HE’S TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT BUT I DON’T THINK HE CAN! HE’S FADING QUICKLY!
Rich Russillo: HE’S OUT! GAINES IS OUT COLD! TERRY JUST WIPED OUT BOTH AMURA AND THE #1 CONTENDER FOR THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP! GAINES IS OUT, TERRY JUST PUT THE MAN TO SLEEP, JUST LIKE THAT!
James Peters: Terry means business! It’s like he didn’t even feel that chair shot from Amura, and not only did one headbutt knock her out, but he managed to put out Korey’s lights not long after he got in the ring! It’s gonna be a tough night for Gaines at Bloodsport if this is the Terry Chambers he’s gonna be facing.
(Terry lets go of the hold, and ‘Natural’ hits as he gets back to his feet before going to grab his Interwire Championship. Meanwhile Noah is slowly sitting up trying to process what just happened, while Gaines and Amura are laid out in the ring, Consuela and Jesse are not seen, as their brawl has made its way backstage during the end of the match. They’re probably in the process of being separated by security.)
(Voltage fades into the backstage to a quieter area. Once again, Sofia Clarke is standing by. She has another EAW Elitist with her, and that is none other than Ms. Extreme.)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time, the record setting PURE Champion, Ms. Extreme!
(The Red Queen flashes the camera a smile.)
Sofia Clarke: Congratulations on picking up your first win of Season 13 last week, Ms. Extreme. You pinned Jalyn Garcia in a highly competitive triple threat match. How did it feel to rebound from Pain for Pride?
Ms. Extreme: Winning is always great, but I never planned to lose steam at all. The loss at Pain for Pride didn’t stop my momentum, and even though I know people are going to continue harping on what happened with Mark Michaels and how I lost my PURE Championship, that doesn’t erase the fact that my championship reign was historic. The name Ms. Extreme will always be in the record books as the longest reigning champion when it comes to that title, and I could not be more proud of the 161 days that I spent holding that belt. But now I’m moving forward, and I’m game for anything.
Sofia Clarke: You certainly are! You quickly stepped up to the plate when Rex McAllister issued an open challenge for Bloodsport.
(Ms. Extreme’s smile turns into a cocky little smirk.)
Ms. Extreme: I sure did. I didn’t come to Voltage to sit on my hands and wait for shit to be handed to me. We all know that once Veena Adams gets over her broken heart and comes back to this brand, the opportunities for women are going to cease to exist. I get that Captain Charisma wants to run this show fairly, but there’s only so much he can do when he’s stuck working with a member of THAT family. Accepting Rex’s challenge at Bloodsport and beating him would put me in the conversation to compete for a world championship. I have thought long and hard about my options coming into this season, and honestly, to win any championship would be great. I’m not picky when it comes to that kind of thing, I just want gold around my waist. Of course, if you’re in this business and you aren’t looking at the very top, wanting to face the best possible competition, and get yourself into a world championship picture, then I have to question what you’re even competing for. It’s nice to get into the ring and put on great matches, but I know for myself, having a great match just isn’t good enough. I want to be recognized as the best. I will be a world champion someday. I hope that happens sooner rather than later, but knocking off Rex, a 2-time world champion, at Bloodsport will go a long way in helping me build a case.
Sofia Clarke: Speaking of that match, which was made official earlier in the week, Rex has left it up to you to decide a stipulation for it. Have you come up with anything yet?
Ms. Extreme: Well, I don’t think our PETA sponsorship will allow us to have a Piranha Deathmatch BUT I have put a lot of thought into this. Rex prides himself on being the best technician in this company and during my PURE Championship reign, I proved that I can hang with absolutely anyone when it comes to mat wrestling. Of course Bloodsport has been designed to take EAW back to its extreme roots, and there is no environment better suited for Ms. Extreme than one that encourages fuckery and chaos, and has absolutely no structure. Last season, Rex blossomed into a competitor that can compete in any kind of match. We saw him survive an Extreme Elimination Chamber match, and live through the original Barbed Wire Massacre match. He took Darkane to his limit in a deathmatch on Voltage before Grand Rampage, and just overall he has proven he can handle anything. So I’m thinking we can have some fun with this and truly test ourselves, and see who is the best out of the two of us. So what I’m propsoing to Rex is something that I like to call a Hardcore Ironman Match.
Sofia Clarke: :oh: Explain.
Ms. Extreme: Basically it’s just a 30-Minute Ironman Match contested under hardcore rules. Anything goes, obviously. Light tubes, thumbtacks, C4 exploding tables… whatever! The person who scores the most pinfalls in 30 minutes is declared the winner when time runs out. Of course if there’s a tie at the end, we go to sudden death and that could have a whole new meaning.
Sofia Clarke (blinking): Wow. I’m not sure what to say to that. That would be quite the match!
Ms. Extreme: I bet I know what Rex is going to say.
Sofia Clarke: What’s that?
(Ms. Extreme grins at the camera.)
Ms. Extreme: See you soon, Ms. Extreme.
(Ms. Extreme winks at the camera, and heads off having thrown down her challenge. There was no doubt in her mind that Rex McAllister wouldn’t accept the challenge. Sofia shakes her head.)
Sofia Clarke: I’m going to be real shocked if we somehow make it through Bloodsport without any massive injuries. Ladies and gentlemen, we’ll be right back!
(The scene fades to black.)
(A promotional ad for the Dynasty exclusive event, Operation Doomsday, airs. Impact defends the World Heavyweight Championship against Lethal Consequences, Kassidy Heart defends the Universal Women’s Championship against Serena Benett, and Jack Reipley defends the National Elite Championship against Jake Smith. All that and more as Operation Doomsday comes to you live on August 17th, 2019 from the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut!)
(Voltage fades back into the ringside where and the camera cuts to Bella. She is ready for the final match of the evening!)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentleman the following contest is your MAIN EVENT of the evening and is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(“Pray For Em” by Meek Mill hits and Malcolm Jones emerges from the back, donned in his trademark shades with The EAW World Championship slung proudly over his shoulder, he’s met with a thunderous reaction from the crowd.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing your special guest commentator of the evening AND your current reigning EAW World Champion MALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLCOOOOOOOOOOOOLMMMMMMMMMMMMMM JONESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: And if you’re just tuning in, that’s right The EAW World Champion Malcolm Jones will be joining us shortly as he makes his way ringside! It’ll be interesting to get his perspective on this match, first hand.
Rich Russillo (Raising his hand for a high five): THERE HE IS, MY MAN!
Malcolm Jones (Approaching the announce desk and putting on a headset): Sit your bitch ass down, I ain’t got time for patty cake.
James Peters: Nice going Rich.
Malcolm Jones: There’s plenty of smoke to go around, you can get it too.
James Peters: :whoa:
(“Alive” by P.O.D blasts over the speakers and crowd reaches their feet. Rex McAllister walks confidently out from the back and gazes towards the ring as he is enveloped by cheers. He balls his fists and heads down the ramp before sliding into the ring, laser-focused.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Sea Isle, New Jersey weighing in at 238 pounds he is…….. RRRRRRRRRRRRRRREXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX MCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSTEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Aw! How cute the groom to be! He better keep those wedding bells in the background if he wants to pull out a victory tonight.
James Peters: I’m sure he has his priorities set Rich.
Malcolm Jones: Man you just love stirring the pot don’t you? Rex got game but he ain’t got shit on me. He knows that as well as anybody.
(The music dies down and the crowd is already booing in anticipation)
(“It Aint Safe” by Skepta hits and Charlie Marr walks slowly out to the stage with Jordie Ripley by his side. A tidal wave of boos wash over the pair. He closes his eyes and soaks in the pure vehemence from the crowd as he descends down the ramp, Jordie holding tightly onto his hand. Charlie circles like a shark around the ring, stopping briefly at the announce desk and pointing at Malcolm Jones’ championship.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing his opponent from Tower Hamlets, London, United Kingdom weighing in at 240 pounds he is CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRLIEEEEEEEEEEEEE MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Charlie Marr to Malcolm (Off mic): Keep it warm for me, would you?
Malcolm Jones (Off mic): The only thing warm will be that fried up thing you call a dick after Bloodsport. Jordie got my digits on speed dial wait, scratch that; considering where that thing has been, she can hop on over to the street corner where she belongs.
(Charlie Marr laughs and rolls his eyes while Jordie flips Malcolm off, continuing around ringside and stepping into the ring.)
(DING! DING! DING!):
James Peters: Let’s get this contest started shall we? Rex’s expression remains unchanged, he’s completely locked in as they both lock up in the center of the ring. Charlie quickly transitions into a side headlock and wrenches downward, but Rex pushes Charlie off into the ropes, back comes Marr with a stiff shoulder tackle which sends Rex back but not down!
Rich Russillo: Rex’s strength is an overlooked part of his game but he’s built like a house at 6’4”
Malcolm Jones: The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
James Peters: Can’t argue with that logic.
Rich Russillo: And if I did?
Malcolm Jones: Then you’d get bodied.
Rich Russillo: Right.
James Peters: Charlie is egging Rex on. He’s challenging him to a test of strength. Rex is a ring general though, he knows that he has the strength advantage over Charlie. OH MY! REX JUST SLAPPED MARR ACROSS THE FACE! Marr holds his jaw and smiles to himself…
Rich Russillo: Rex isn’t playing games. He knows a victory over Marr would set himself up nicely.
James Peters: Charlie launches himself forward with a wild right hand which Rex sidesteps, CHARLIE TURNS AROUND! REXXXXXXXXXX EFFFFFFFFFFFECCCCCCCCCCCTTTTTTT DDT!
Rich Russillo: BUT CHARLIE DROPS DOWN BEFORE REX CAN AND ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!
(Jordie Ripley consoles Charlie Marr at ringside.)
Charlie Marr: SHUT UP! I’M ALRIGHT!
Malcolm Jones: Not so cocky now is he?
James Peters: Charlie slides into the ring or at least he fakes it, he draws Rex McAllister and attempts to grab his feet but Rex stomps on his hand! Charlie pulls his hand away, steps backward and makes sure his fingers aren’t broken by wiggling them. Rex isn’t wasting any time either! He swiftly steps through the ropes and to the outside! He’s in hot pursuit of Charlie who slides into the ring, Rex slides in after and is met with a stiff knee to the jaw, continued with rapid-fire clubbing blows to the back.
Rich Russillo: Charlie backs Rex into the corner and whips a few blistering knife edged chops across his chest. He follows this with hard stomps to the mid-section.
Charlie Marr: SHHHHHHHH!
James Peters: OPEN HAND PALM STRIKE ACROSS THE STERNUM OF REX MCALLISTER,! BUT LOOK AT THIS, REX IS FIGHTING BACK WITH A SURGE OF RIGHT AND LEFT HANDS! HE GRABS THE SHINY DOME OF CHARLIE MARR AND APPLIES A FIRM SIDE HEADLOCK!
Malcolm Jones: As much as the baby back bitch that Charlie truly is, you’re not gonna beat him with rest holds. Rex needs to take it to this cue ball muthafucka.
Rich Russillo: I think he heard you! He spikes the top of Charlie’s head with closed fists! He then whips his own series of knife-edged chops! Rex yanks Charlie’s forward and Irish whips him into the corner!
James Peters: But it’s reversed! Charlie dashes towards Rex but he gets his boot up, to which Charlie catches in the nick of time! He throws down Rex’s leg and leaps forward with flying corner forearm!! That just jacked Rex’s jaw! Charlie backs up and drives his shoulder into the mid-section of Rex, taking the air right out of him and before Rex can get his wits about him, Charlie seizes Rex’s arm and attempts to Irish whip him into the opposite corner but Rex pulls him in and drills him with a back elbow which knocks Charlie back a few feet!
Rich Russillo: Rex charges towards Charlie and tries to land a jumping high knee strike but Charlie sidesteps him, hooks his neck and drops down with a picture-perfect neckbreaker! He floats over for the cover! The referee drops down and begins his count!
Malcolm Jones: Oh hell naw, you ain’t gonna put him away with that weak ass neck breaker.
James Peters: Indeed, Rex managed to kick out at only the count of one! Meanwhile, Charlie is viciously stomping away at Rex’s upper sternum and solar plexus. He yanks Rex up by the hair.
Ref (Off mic): Hey watch the hair, Charlie.
Charlie Marr (Off mic): I don’t have any dumbass.
Rich Russillo: He’s got a point.
James Peters: I believe the referee meant Rex’s hair.
Malcolm Jones: No shit.
Rich Russillo: JESUS WHAT A HEADBUTT BY CHARLIE MARR! I THINK THAT GOT REX RIGHT ON THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE! BUT REX IS SMILING AND THERE APPEARS TO BE BLOOD DRIPPING FROM HIS NOSE! REX HEADBUTTS CHARLIE RIGHT BACK! AND ANOTHER! AND YET ANOTHER!
James Peters: LOOK OUT! RUNNING BICYCLE KICK JUST DROPPED CHARLIE MARR! REX SPRINTS TOWARDS THE ROPES AND BOUNCES BACK AS CHARLIE IS STATIONARY ON A KNEE! YAKUZA KICK!
Rich Russillo: IS CAUGHT! CHARLIE MARR QUICKLY DROPS DOWN AND BENDS REX’S LEG WITH A VICIOUS SNAP DRAGON SCREW! REX GRIMACES IN AGONY! WHILE CHARLIE IS FEASTING ON REX’S LEG WITH CALCULATED STOMPS TO THE MCL AND TO THE PATELLA!
James Peters: You may not like him, but this is a smart strategy if Rex can’t stand, then he can’t land that devastating Rex Effect DDT.
Malcolm Jones: He ain’t got shit.
Rich Russillo: Charlie stretches the right leg of Rex’s and quickly drops his knee on the inner part of Rex’s knee! And again! He then holds Rex’s leg out and steps over… Could he be thinking figure four here James?
James Peters: I believe so, but Rex is fighting it! He pushes Charlie’s rear end forward with the base of his foot sending him into the turnbuckle, but Charlie manages to stop himself before he ate a faceful of the pad!
Malcolm Jones: That’s about the only thing he gets to eat nowadays.
Rich Russillo: Rex manages to reach his knees but Charlie storms back with a running knee lift that smacks Rex’s jaw upward! Rex crumbles back down! Charlie is enjoying this! Rex’s nose is ballooning up, it might be broken from that brutal headbutt earlier! Charlie hoists Rex up into a suplex position but Rex is blocking Charlie from sending him over! Rex drives a few lightning-quick fists into the ribs of Charlie who backs off for a moment and then quickly rakes the eyes of Rex while Jordie distracts the referee by tugging on his pant leg from under the rope!
Malcolm Jones: I swear if that bitch somehow figures out a way to get involved at Bloodsport, they’re both gonna get zapped, no questions asked.
James Peters: That’s a good point Malcolm, she’s definitely an ace up Charlie’s sleeve.
Malcolm Jones: Or a brainless paint by number ho.
Rich Russillo: What he said.
James Peters: Anyways, Charlie just planted Rex with a snap suplex to perfection. He’s dominating this match so far Rich.
Malcolm Jones: Bitch, he’s had help, don’t act like he’s doing yeoman’s work out here.
Rich Russillo: Yeah but Charlie doesn’t care. He’s made that clear. He’ll do anything to win.
James Peters: Charlie has just stepped onto the apron. GROSS! HE JUST LAUNCHED A HUGE SLIMY WAD OF SPIT AT MALCOLM JONES!
Malcolm Jones: MOTHERFUC-
Rich Russillo: SLINGSHOT ELBOW DROP MISSES ITS MARK! REX ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY! REX QUICKLY CORRALS CHARLIE AND DRIVES HIM DOWN INTO THE MAT WITH A THUNDEROUS SPINEBUSTER! HE DIVES ON TOP OF MARR AND STARTINGS POUNDING AWAY AT HIS SKULL WITH RAPID FIRE SHOTS!
Crowd: LET’S GO REX! LET’S GO REX! LET’S GO REX!
James Peters: REX PULLS CHARLIE MARR UP AND STARTS LAYING INTO HIM WITH KNIFE EDGED CHOPS, HE GRABS CHARLIE’S ARM AND PULLS HIM IN! OVER-THE-HEAD BELLY TO BELLY CONNECTS AND CHARLIE GOES TUMBLING INTO THE CORNER! REX IS ALIVE AND WELL FOLKS!
Malcolm Jones: Now he’s gotta finish him off.
Rich Russillo: Charlie tries to pull himself up but Rex swallows him with a body splash! Charlie stumbles out of the corner! Rex hooks him from behind! Russian leg sweep! Down they go! Rex hooks the leg!
James Peters: JUST TWO! Charlie shoots his shoulder up from the canvas! Rex pulls Charlie up but Charlie sweeps Rex’s hands out from under him and throws a nasty forearm into his face; right into his bloodied up nose! Charlie snaps Rex forward and onto his rear, he darts towards the ropes and comes back… WHAT A PUNT TO THE NOSE!
Malcolm Jones: HE GOT CAUGHT!
Rich Russillo: REX HAS GOT HIM BY THE LEG! HE’S HOPPING ON HIS FREE LEG! ENZIGURI OUTTA NOWHERE FROM CHARLIE!
James Peters: DUCKED BY REX! CHARLIE LAYS ON HIS STOMACH NOW! REX STEPS OVER AND GRABS CHARLIE’S OTHER LEG! BOSTON CRAB TIME!!!!!! HE’S GOT IT CINCHED IN BUT CHARLIE WAS NEAR THE ROPES UNFORTUNATELY FOR REX!
Rich Russillo: Rex reluctantly releases the hold and pulls Charlie backup but Charlie lands an abrupt jawbreaker that sends Rex stumbling towards the middle of the ring! CHARLIE STEAMS TOWARDS HIM BUT REX CATCHES CHARLIE IN HIS GRASP! BELLY TO BELLY! THE PIN!
Malcolm Jones: HOOK THE LEG, YOU BOZO! DAMN!
Rich Russillo: YEAH! WHAT HE SAID! CHARLIE MANAGED TO KICK OUT BECAUSE OF THAT VERY REASON! GREAT ANALYSIS FROM OUR CHAMPION!
Malcolm Jones: Buttering up to me won’t get you anywhere, you’re still in the doghouse.
Rich Russillo: :noah: Come on! We were both in REVOLT!
Malcolm Jones: :mjpls:
James Peters: Rex is back on the attack with stomps and punches, wearing Charlie down but Marr come back with a series of rights and lefts of his own, however Rex replies with a stinging uppercut that swivels Charlie Marr around and down! Rex quickly staples him to the mat with a running bulldog! Rex scoops Charlie up and slams him hard in the center of the ring! He backs up into the corner rather meticulously and tries to land a high angle knee drop but Charlie moves out of the way as Rex rolls through and onto his feet!
Rich Russillo: Rex speeds towards Charlie Marr but is struck down by a super-fast reverse powerslam, he cradles the head of Rex and pins him!
James Peters: Kickout by Rex! Charlie licks his bottom lip and pulls Rex up to his feet, but Rex suddenly leaps forward and drives his head into Charlie’s, two, three and a fourth time! Charlie is on dream street! Rex caps off with a take-your-head-off clothesline! Rex drops down hooks both legs for good measure!
Rich Russillo: Another kickout by Marr! Jordie Ripley applauds from ringside and slams the apron with her hand, trying to get a rise out of Charlie!
Malcolm Jones: Good luck with that.
James Peters: Charlie and Rex both reach their feet simultaneously but not before Rex plants a boot into the midsection of Marr. Rex throws Marr’s arm over his neck and attempts a suplex of his own but Marr blocks the attempt with his foot! Charlie jolts Rex back with a few fists to the ribs and sprints forward towards him! OHHHHH MY! WHAT A TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER! THAT JUST ABOUT SNAPPED MARR’S SPINE IN HALF LIKE A TWIG! HE PINS!
Rich Russillo: AGAIN, Charlie powers out nearly at the count of three!
Malcolm Jones: He just got lucky.
James Peters: I don’t know Malcolm, Charlie hasn’t gotten this far by just pure luck.
Malcolm Jones: Commentate the match bozo, I know what I see.
Rich Russillo: Rex wipes the sweat from his forehead and wrings the arm of Charlie up and… DOWN with a hard arm wrench! He lifts Charlie’s arm up again but then shoots a boot into his gut and hooks his arm. Pumphandle? NO! Charlie drives a few elbows into the chest of Rex and throws him across the ring with a quick arm drag! REX IS BACK UP THOUGH! HE’S RUNNING AND GUNNING FOR MARR!
James Peters: AND INTO A BIG BOOT! Rex spits some of the blood out from his mouth that oozed from his nose and challenges Charlie to boot him again!
Malcolm Jones: Rex can get crazy when he wants too.
Rich Russillo: But instead Charlie drops his knees in the same position that Rex is in and… HE JUST SLAPPED THE BLOOD OUT OF REX’S MOUTH! PAYBACK’S A BITCH I GUESS! REX COMES BACK AND DRIVES HIS KNUCKLES INTO CHARLIE’S TEMPLE, BUT CHARLIE SHAKES IT OFF AND BACKHANDS REX ACROSS THE FACE! THEY BOTH RISE TO THEIR FEET AGAIN! THEY’RE LITERALLY HEAD TO HEAD TALKING TRASH TO EACH OTHER!
James Peters: RIGHT HAND BY CHARLIE!
Rich Russillo: LEFT JAB BY REX!
James Peters: ANOTHER RIGHT FROM CHARLIE!!!!
Rich Russillo: KNIFE EDGED CHOP BY REX!!!!!!!
James Peters: CHARLIE STICKS HIS KNEE INTO THE STOMACH OF REX WHO KEELS OVER! CHARLIE PULLS HIM IN AND HOISTS HIM UP HIGH ON HIS SHOULDERS!!! WOULD YOU LOOK AT THE STRENGTH!!!!! HE RUNS TOWARDS THE CORNER!!!!!!!!! BUCCCCCCCCCCCCCKLEEEEEEE BOMBBBBBBBBBBBBB!!!

(A replay is shown of Rex trying to break his fall with his arm as he lands hard near the rampway)
Malcolm Jones: He’s gotta be dead after that. Dumbass thot getting involved again.
James Peters: The referee has gone to the outside to check on Rex. He already has a busted nose! The referee is looking at Rex and then at the timekeeper. I THINK HE’S GONNA RING THE BELL. NO!
Rich Russillo: LOOK JAMES! REX JUST GRABBED THE ARM OF THE REFEREE AND SHOOK HIS HEAD NO! HERE COMES CHARLIE! HE’S INCENSED! HE PULLS THE REF OUT OF THE WAY! OH MY GOD!!!!!!!! REX EFFECT!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: REX LOOKS QUESTIONINGLY AT THE REFEREE! AND WHO CAN BLAME HIM?! I THOUGHT FOR SURE CHARLIE WAS DONE!
James Peters: NOW WHAT’S REX DOING?!
Malcolm Jones: He’s gonna finish him.
Rich Russillo: REX MCALLISTER WITH A BLOODY NOSE, A DANGLING ARM AND ALL IS PERCHED LIKE A GARGOYLE ON THE TOP ROPE, BUT CHARLIE LEAPS TOWARDS THE ROPES CAUSING REX TO FALL ON HIS MCALLISTERS! POOR RAVEN!

Charlie Marr (Off mic and bowing): Thank you, thank you. I’m here all night.
James Peters: LOOK OUT! REX SPRINGS OUT OF THE CARNAGE LIKE A JUNGLE CAT AND DRILLS CHARLIE WITH A RUNNING HIGH KNEE THAT CAUSES CHARLIE’S HEAD TO BOBBLE LIKE AN EXECUTIVE DESK TOY!

(“Alive” by P.O.D replays and Rex gingerly rises to his feet, wiping the blood from his nose with his good arm, looking down at Marr and back up at Malcolm Jones. Jordie is pounding her fists on Malcolm’s back and kicking out her legs. Malcolm finally sets Jordie down and smiles are her.)
James Peters: JORDIE RIPLEY JUST SLAPPED MALCOLM JONES ACROSS THE FACE!!!
Rich Russillo: :lupe:
James Peters: MALCOLM SNATCHES JORDIE BY THE HAIR AND GETS HER IN POSITION! SHE IS UNABLE TO FIGHT HIM OFF AND OH MY GAWD! MALCOLM WITH THE L-TRAIN!!! MALCOLM JUST KILLED JORDIE RIPLEY WITH A CANADIAN DESTROYER RIGHT THERE ON THE STAGE!!!
(The crowd erupts as the EAW Champion shouts a string of profanity laced insults down at the fallen body of Jordie Ripley. Malcolm gets back to his feet and dusts hands up, and retrieves his championship. He holds it in the air for the entire world to see and the EAW Universe can’t help but applaud him.)
Rich Russillo: If that ain’t a sight to see then I don’t know what is. Malcolm Jones doesn’t fuck around.
James Peters: The champ backs down from nobody. Whether it’s on Showdown or now on Voltage.
Rich Russillo: Neither does Charlie or Rex for that matter.
James Peters: Thank you for tuning this evening ladies and gents, for Rich Russillo, this is James Peters! See you next week! I can’t wait to see what the fallout is!
(A last shot of Charlie Marr snarling at Malcolm Jones through the ropes who is laughing wildly on stage fades the show out.)
