Voltage 7/8/2018

(Numerous highlights from Pain for Pride Festival begin to show on the screen. We see Prince of Phenomenal making his entrance, patting the National Elite Championship that is around his waist. Then, we see him and Heart Break Boy staring off in the middle of the ring before the audible sound of the ring bell being rung is heard. The shot then cuts to POP hitting HBB with the Crown of Thorns off of a ladder before cutting to POP climbing the ladder to unhook his National Elite Championship while a broken HBB looks on from below, too late in stopping his foe. We then hear a voiceover from ring announcer Aaron Fitzpatrick.)

Fitzpatrick: HERRRREEE IS YOUR WINNNER… AND STILLL NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONNNN!! THE PRINNCCEEEEE OFFFFF PHENOMENALLLLL!!!

(POP steps down and soaks in the ovation from the crowd while holding both the National Elite title and the REVOLT! Middleweight title high as the frame freezes. A white flash comes across the screen as we transition to the next match, the fatal four-way for the New Breed Championship! Every man is shown making their entrance for a couple seconds with emphasis on Xander Payne. The scene cuts to Xander and Alex Bowden battling it out. Xander rakes the eyes of Bowden, knees him in the gut and hits the Paynekiller! It cuts again to Payne covering Bowden as we can hear another voiceover of the crowd chanting along with the referee’s count.)

Crowd/Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!

(We cut again to the referee handing Xander Payne the New Breed Championship. Xander kisses the belt and we hear the voice of Stephie Love.)

Stephie Love: …AND THE NEWWWWWWW EAW NEW BREEDDDD CHAMPIONNNNNN!!!!… XANDERRRRRR PAYNEEEEE!!!!!

(A shot of Xander getting one hand raised by the ref while raising the New Breed title with the other then freezes and we get another white flash signaling another transition to..The Woogieman versus Shaker Jones! Woogieman is shown raising his fist during his entrance. Then, Shaker Jones is shown holding up his Big Bhaker Championship to the capacity crowd. We cut to a shot of a bloody Woogieman hitting The Bottom on Shaker after reversing an Irish Whip before Woogie exhaustedly falls on top of Shaker for the count! Another cut and another voiceover.)

Stew-O: HES DONE IT! WOOGIEMAN HAS DONE IT! WHAT AN UPSET!

(Woogieman is handed the newly named Big Boogie Championship by the official before Woogie backs into one of the corners with doctors surrounding him trying to clean the blood and a big grin on his face. The shot freezes and we continue on to the next match: the ever so controversial Cash In The Vault ladder match! We get a quick glimpse of each competitor in the match but we especially focus on Noah Reigner who is shown doing his “assault rifle” taunt in slow motion. The shot fast forwards to the end of the match where we see the ladder occupied by Noah after he shoved Erebus Jennings off onto Consuela Rose Ava and Lucian Black getting tipped over only for Noah to catch himself on one of the ropes with one of his feet. It cuts again to Raven Roberts attempting to take out Noah by throwing another ladder his way but Noah instead uses the ladder for leverage, jumping up to the briefcase and hanging from it! He then unlatches it in mid-air.)

Stephie Love: …THE 2018 MR. CASH IN THE VAULT… NOOOAAHHHH REEEIIIIIGGGNNNNERRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!

(We then get a shot of Noah atop the shoulders of Madison Reigner, Evelyn Ridley, and Cameron Church celebrating his victory which again, freezes before a flash. Finally, we get to Chris Elite versus Malcolm Jones for the EAW World Heavyweight Championship! We see quick clips of each man making their respective entrances before cutting to a plethora of highlights of Elite and MJ going to war – we even see the Joneset and Elite Entourage interacting and arguing – including Chris hitting a reverse Frankensteiner on Malcolm on the ring apron, Chris performing a Moonsault double foot stomp on Malcolm, Malcolm throwing Elite into a ring post before headbutting him and saying “YOU’LL BE IIGHT! YOU TOUGH RIGHT? YOU TOUGH RIGHT?!”, Chris going for a Box Office Smash but being countered with a low blow from MJ, Malcolm deadlift suplexing Elite who’s head smashes against the LED ringpost and Chris reversing a Canadian Destroyer from MJ into a Cross Armbreaker! The camera cuts to Elite leaping at Malcolm hitting him with a devastating headbutt that sends a couple of Malcolm’s teeth flying as blood begins to pour out of his mouth. We cut again to MJ’s Joneset taking out Chris’ entourage and then surrounding Chris in the ring. The Joneset begins to jump Chris Elite while MJ looks on from a corner. The shot suddenly slows down and quickly fades to black as all we can hear is a roar from the Las Vegas crowd and a frantic Kawajai.)

Kawajai: IT’S BIG MIKE!!!!!!!!!

(The scene comes back to us after Kawa finishes his sentence and we see Big Mike storming the ring with a lead pipe to save Chris Elite! We cut a few more times to multiple shots of Big Mike taking out members of the Joneset before he finally comes face to face with Malcolm Jones! Big Mike and MJ begin to trade shots but Chris comes from behind and nails MJ with a low blow with the lead pipe from before. We see MJ’s reaction to the move as Big Mike and Chris have smiles on their faces. We then cut to Chris Elite going for the Long Kiss Goodnight on MJ but not without the assistance of Mike who lifts him onto his shoulders. We then see in slow motion Elite spiking Malcolm on his head with the finishing maneuver from 10 feet above as the crowd goes wild! Chris then holds the pin on MJ in normal speed as the camera cuts to black and once again, all we can hear is the crowd and referee.)

Crowd/Ref: ONE!!!!!!!!!! TWO!!!!!!!!!! THREE!!!!!!!!!!!!

(A pause.)

DING! DING! DING!

(The camera cuts back to the scene at Kinetic Field where we get an aerial view of the area and shots of members of the crowd with their mouths agape in shock. We also see the viewers in Brooklyn jump out of their seats. Then we return to the ring where Chris Elite is handed his World Heavyweight title as he lays on the mat, completely deprived of energy. Chris’ theme “Odee” can be heard in the background.)

Rebecca Sawyer: AND STILL!!!!!!!!!!!! THE WOOOOOOOOOOOORLD HEAVYYYYYWEIIIIIIIIIGHT CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!! CHRRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS EEEEEEEELLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

(We cut to see Chris and Big Mike hug in the ring as confetti falls down all around the field from a helicopter and fireworks go off above the stadium! We are left with one last still image: Chris Elite crowdsurfing among the sea of fans and celebrating with the EAW World Heavyweight Championship in his hands as the scene fades out.)

………..

(The 2018 EAW Draft Logo is shown on the screen as we begin a recap of the draft picks for Voltage: Former EAW Champion Rex McAllister, EAW National Elite Champion Prince of Phenomenal, Mr. CITV Noah Reigner, Hall of Famers Devan Dubian and a returning Lethal Consequences! The scene then flashes to interactions between both new and old roster members such as Lars Grier warning Noah Reigner:)

Lars: I refuse to be another notch under the belt of nothing more than a glorified indy darling who thinks he can just waltz into this company and be handed everything….Congrats on your move to Voltage, you better hope I get moved elsewhere, for your sake.

Noah: ….Step up to the plate but the end result is always the same, House always wins.

(We cut to shots of Noah fighting Jack Ripley before ultimately getting the win.)

(We see more announcements of Voltage draft picks from the social stream flash on the screen: Scott Diamond, Charlie Marr, Daryl Kinkade, Lars Grier, Xander Payne, Carpenter Munrowe, James Ranger, Jacob Moore, Alex Bowden, The Woogieman, and Jonah Brown! Before each pick, a clip of them in action is shown. Scott is shown hitting Darkane with The Vortex at Pain for Pride, Charlie Marr and Daryl Kinkade are shown defeating the Core Brothers in tag team action on that very night, Lars hits the Ravenbeak on Jamie O’Hara, Xander takes out Alex Bowden with the Paynekiller at Pain for Pride, Carpenter performs the Dark Necessity, James Ranger is shown hitting the Final Execution, Moore has Nobi in a Butterfly Lock, Bowden hits a 12 Gauge Boot on a helpless opponent, The Woogieman hits The Bottom on Shaker Jones at PFP, and Jonah Brown is shown doing a taunt to the camera.)

( Voltage intro video plays featuring the song “Machine Gun” by Chase & Status, and we open up to the Infinite Energy Arena in Duluth, Georgia with MASSIVE gold and white pyro firing off from the stage, the titantron, the turnbuckles, and an incredible spectacle of lights prompting the capacity crowd to give every ounce of energy behind their applause. )

Nick Angel: WELCOME TO THE SEASON 12 PREMIERE OF SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE! 11 YEARS OFFICIALLY IN THE HISTORY BOOKS, 11 PAIN FOR PRIDES WRAPPED UP, AND NOW ON THE HEELS OF OUR DRAFT SHOW.. WE ARE HERE IN WHAT IS SURE TO BE A HISTORIC SEASON!

Kawajai: That’s right Nick! We couldn’t have asked for a more successful draft and now here we are! Fresh off of Pain for Pride, a night that saw our World Heavyweight Champion Chris Elite retain his belt! We saw our National Elite Champion and now member of the Voltage roster Prince of Phenomenal overcome an old foe in the Heart Break Boy by retaining his championship! Now lets see what amazing moments season 12 brings us!

(Camera transitions to Bella Braxton standing in the middle of the ring)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!

(If Ya Smell By Adam Massare plays throughout the arena Woogieman walks down the ramp taking in the atmosphere)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first… From Jacksonville, Florida. Weighing in at 265 lbs… he is the Big Boogie Bhampionnnn…. The Woogieman!!

Kawajai: I couldn’t think of a better way to start this show off than with the GOAT HIMSELF! Our Bhampion, Woogieman!

Nick Angel: Woogie had an amazing Pain for Pride moment and he’s looking to ride that momentum onto season 12, I’m just glad we have him on our brand!

(“God’s Plan” by Drake blasts throughout the arena, as Vince I. Pride, walks down to the ring with a mic in hand accompanied by a gang of beautiful women, he’s sporting a Drake “Scorpion” shirt and some unreleased Adidas that might be from Drake’s “Adidon” collection.)

VIP: 901 Voltage Drive look alive look alive! It’s your boy Vincent I motherfucking Pride. I come from the 6ix Side, I turned REVOLT inside out and made it TLOVER. The T is for Toronto, now watch me as I elevate! Elevate! Only obligation is to set it straight! I’m upset! Putting me against Woogieman is disrespect! But I’ll make quick work of him and then it’s onto bigger and better things.

Bella Braxton: Introducing next… From Toronto, Ontario, Canada! Weighing in at 280 lbs… Vince I. Pride “V.I.P”!!!!!!

Kawajai: Well he’s certainly talkative.

Nick Angel: Pay your respects Kawajai! This isn’t just anybody, this is Vincent I Pride! He made a name for himself in REVOLT, as witty as he is on the mic, he’s even more witty in the ring so be on the lookout for him going forward here on Voltage!

(‘Kill The Sound’ By Celldweller fills the arena as Jonah Brown walks down the ramp and rolls into the ring)

Introducing last… From Edmonton, Alberta, Canada! Weighing in at 220lbs Jonah Brown!

(DING DING DING)

Kawajai: Here we go there’s the bell all three of these men ready to compete, circle the ring like shots, who is going to make the first move.

Nick Angel: OH! “VIP” and Jonah both charging woogieman backing him into the corner, just laying into him, right and left hands from both men as well as kicks.

Kawajai: Woogieman could be taken out of this match early, as both men now throwing woogieman out of the ring like a piece of trash no remorse whatsoever.

Nick Angel: Now like two sharks they turn their attention to one another circling the ring…

Kawajai: They come to the center for a test of strength “VIP” with an early advantage but Jonah now battling back… and a kick to the midsection of “VIP” by Jonah as he was starting to lose the battle again.

Nick Angel: It just doesn’t make sense to me why would you get into a test of strength with a man who you give up a lot to, but Jonah with the advantage early after that vicious cheap shot, grabbing “VIP” by the hair picking him up delivering a quick snap suplex.

Kawajai: Just like that Jonah back to work on “VIP” with kicks to every section of his body.

Nick Angel: Taking the opportunity to make this a one on one while he can, Jonah now lifting “VIP” back up again as he goes for a strong Knife edge chop to the chest… but “VIP” ducks under it off the ropes and he delivers a shoulder block knocking Jonah clean off his feet.

Kawajai: The Athleticism Nick by “VIP” he is not a small man to be able to fly through the air like that is just amazing, but now it’s “VIP” lifting Jonah back to his feet… “VIP” going behind now to deliver a strong belly to back suplex throwing Jonah halfway across the ring.

Nick Angel: What a display of power and strength by “VIP” literally throwing another grown man halfway across the ring, “VIP” with a cover

REF: ONEEEE!!!! TWOOOO!!!!!! KICKOUT!!!!!

Kawajai: “VIP” right back on the assault with some kicks to the back of Jonah, now setting up Jonah for an Abdominal Stretch!

Nick Angel: You can see the pain on the face of Jonah, that move not only stretches you to the point where you almost rip in half, but it also forces you to support most of the weight of your opponent as well as your own it just wears you down in every sense.

Kawajai: “VIP” intentionally breaking his own hold now, with a kick to the back of Jonah, now turning Jonah around kicking him in the midsection he lifts him up for “BACK TO MAT”, he holds that vicious powerbomb for a pin!

REF:ONEEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOO!!!!! THREEEE!!!

(“God’s Plan” by Drake plays through the arena as VIP celebrates his victory, the women come back into the ring with him as they celebrate together.)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner by pinfall! Vince I. Pride…. V… I… P!!!!!!!!!!!

Nick Angel: I told you Kawa! This man is no slouch and you’ll see that behind all the flash, is also cash! I know you can’t relate to him but this man is someone to be on the lookout for. A successful debut in EAW is in the books for VIP, I look forward to seeing what the future holds.

(Camera transitions to a gloomy undisclosed area backstage where Lars Grier can be seen sitting down on a chair, he begins talking)

Lars: Last week at the EAW Draft, I had the pleasure of meeting an up and coming talent who has been taking the company by storm ever since his arrival, a man by the name of Noah Reigner. I offered him some advice, some guidance, some help. In doing that I managed to hurt the kids feelings and offend him by doing such a thing. My advice was taken as a backhanded gesture and my genuine attempt to help somebody new in this company was met with disrespect in return. Now…. it’s personal. What Noah Reigner doesn’t understand is that I have been in the same position as him before, albeit I haven’t accomplished something such as winning the Cash in the Vault, but I’ve had plenty of opportunities to capture a world championship in my young career. Keyword, opportunities, because if we’re going to be honest here, the only thing the Cash in the Vault truly is when you break it down….. is an opportunity. What Noah doesn’t realize is that he’s starting to take his success for granted, and NOTHING in EAW is guaranteed. Not even a successful cash in, or an undefeated streak. But hey what do I know right? I’ve never had either so maybe I’m not qualified to talk about this? Get the fuck outta here.

(Lars’ calm expression changes to a more visibly angry one as he looks directly towards the camera)

Lars: Noah, listen to me you conceited piece of shit, I know you’re in the back watching with your trainer and your little bitch by your side and you think you got this whole thing all figured out, but you’re in for a rude awakening. You were better off trying your shot at the New Breed division to start off, but now you’ve been thrown to the wolves off the rip, and the wolves are hungry. It doesn’t help with your dismissive and careless attitude towards those who have come before you, but that’s just gonna make it that much more satisfying to bring you down from that little high you’re on. Listen to me and listen to me carefully, you know that little briefcase you’re holding? Let me give you a history lesson on it since you fail to realize the fact that you can lose that little hype you have just as quick as you picked it up. Let’s talk about that Cash in the Vault briefcase and some men who have won it but have failed to do what actually matters in the grand scheme, like… cashing it in.

(Lars pauses and stands up and paces around before putting the mic back up to his face and resuming)

Lars: You see, with that briefcase you have a one year ceiling at the very most, of the world looking at you and going “omg this guy is the future of the business! Surefire world champion by the end of the season!”. In reality it ends up being significantly less than a year because you guys love blowing your load early and thinking you have an opportunity to take advantage of. Typically by Road to Redemption the CITV winner sees the grueling and damaging war the champion just went through in the extreme elimination chamber and uses that as an opportunity to cash in because it’s just too good to pass up, they’ll never know if they’ll ever have another opportunity like that ever again. So in reality you probably have six months of the fans looking at you like you can do no wrong and putting all of their stock into you before you either prove them right by successfully cashing in…… or you fall flat on your own fucking face. I’m gonna be honest here Noah, looking at how careless you act towards the history that comes before you in terms of thinking you’re the only newcomer to have ever been hyped on the scale you currently are, or acting like there’s never been failed Cash in the Vault winners, you’re starting to lean towards one of those future failures if you ask me.

Lars: The worst thing you can be in this business is oblivious and careless, you don’t have the answers no matter how lucky you got at Pain for Pride. You know who else didn’t have the answers? Eddie Mack. Eddie Mack? Who could that be? One of the biggest disgraces and failures to ever step foot inside this fucking company and the biggest smudge on the history and prestige of the Cash in the Vault. Eddie Mack at the time though, unlike you he was somebody who actually paid his dues before reaching the level of being able to win the briefcase. When he did actually win it, all was right in the world of Eddie Mack for like a couple of months, he couldn’t do any wrong! He was the future of the business! The next world champion because the CITV is a guaranteed world title win! ………Until he failed his cash in opportunity and immediately fell off the face of the earth never again to reach the heights he experienced during that brief period.

(Lars shakes his head in disgust)

Lars: But let me guess you’re no Eddie Mack right? You aren’t somebody who spent a good amount of time in the middle of the pack before ascending to the top right? You’re somebody who immediately shot to the top while Eddie Mack was always somebody who was always a average middle of the pack performer at heart and the CITV only masked his mediocrity for a few months… so I’m sure you’ll say that isn’t your situation. I have a situation that better suits you then, another CITV winner… a man who once went by the name of Lioncross. You see just like you, Lioncross entered this company with all the hype in the world based on something he did in other companies for years. A man who spent 7 years absolutely refusing to join EAW because he had an elitist attitude(no pun intended) and thought he was too good because his precious companies like CWF and LEGION weren’t carcases yet. So years later after all the places he used to compete in were dead with no signs of ever returning, he finally bit the bullet and swallowed his pride because at the end of the day, we all gotta feed our family one way or another right? This man signs a “legends” contract based on some shit he did in companies that couldn’t hold a CANDLE to EAW even in their prime, companies that used to SHIT on EAW and shunned it, and these pieces of shit who used to call the shots gave him preferential treatment over dudes who had been team EAW through and through and helped build this shit.

Lars: So what does that have to do with you? Well just like Lioncross, you seem to have a reputation for what you did in past companies you’ve been a part of before coming here, and think that’s enough to make you succeed here. You seem to think ANY of us in the back give a shit about what you did in bingo halls for the past however many years, and just like Lioncross you’ll realize that this is another animal. So Lioncross goes on with his undeserved hype and special treatment and he finds himself a spot in the CITV ladder match at PFP 9. By some miracle… Lioncross captures the CITV!!! In less than a year of being in EAW, just like you.. he wins and everything is right with the world!! The “legend” cements his EAW legacy as he’s on the way to become a future world champion… until he realized that the going only got tougher and squandered the opportunity. Cementing his legacy as a failed CITV holder who couldn’t even manage to hold the fucking briefcase long enough to cash it in because somebody won it off of him. Does that hit home enough for you? No? Okay cool. Let’s talk about that precious undefeated streak of yours then. You think you’re the first person to enter this company and have an undefeated streak? You think you’re this is going to last forever? You know who else felt that way? A man I mentioned before last week.. Vance Tybull. Why do I keep bringing this man’s name up and what does he have to do with you? Well just like you he came into EAW with a load of hype and projections of being a future face of this company and had an undefeated streak that he thought would last forever until he finally got a reality check that he wasn’t ready for. He began to finally lose matches and he never recovered from it because he was a pampered spoiled bitch who ran when the going got rough and Tybull turned into Crybull. That’s why when I see all you’ve been able to accomplish, it doesn’t move me, because I see your attitude and I see exactly where this is headed… all it takes is one simple reality check.

(Lars pauses and looks down for a second before looking back up and staring hard into the camera)

Lars: And I’m going to be the one to deliver it to you.

(Lars pushes the camera at the way as it statics and fades to black)

(Commercial Break)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!

(“Champion” – Barns Courtney blasts throughout the arena as Ryan Davis makes his way down the ramp)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Kawajai: The bell sounds and we are underway in this fatal 4 way one fall to a finish match, this match stacked with up and coming talent, all 4 men circling the ring waiting for an opening.

Nick Angel: Van and Carpenter locking up trading punches in one corner, Alex Bowden and Ryan Davis in another, Alex with the upper hand unloading rights and lefts to the head and midsection of Ryan

Kawajai: Van and Carpenter now taking their fight to the outside, leaving the whole ring at the disposal of Alex still with the upper hand on Ryan Davis, Alex pushing Ryan back into the corner now Alex with a wicked Knife Edged Chop to the chest of Ryan.

Nick Angel: OH! Alex delivering chop after chop, now Irish Whipping Ryan off the ropes, Alex delivers a nice shoulder tackle and Ryan is down now center of the ring, Alex goes for a cover!

Ref: Oneeeee!!!! Twooooo!!!!! KICK OUT!!!

Kawajai: Ryan with a kick out at the count of two but Alex right back on the attack, trying to lock in a sleeper hold, he has it! Alex not just hammering away at the head and face area of Ryan with punches still with the sleeper hold tightly locked in!

Nick Angel: I think Ryan is being too fade, he’s not looking so good I don’t think Alex want’s it to end that way, as he is now lifting Ryan back to a vertical base a kick to the midsection, Alex now delivers a DDT. planting Ryan on his head.

Kawajai: Van and Carpenter still fighting on the outside, paying no attention to anything that is going on in the ring, it’s almost like they forgot a match is even going on, fighting against the barricade right almost in the fans laps!

Nick Angel: While this is going on Alex is just lighting Ryan up kick after kick just stomping on him, Alex beginning to pick Ryan up yet again, now setting him up for a beautiful swinging neck breaker, what will he do to this man next, he is just flat out having his way in this match.

Kawajai: Alex came prepared for this match, it seems like he is in just a completely different league tonight than these other three men.

Nick Ange: Alex lifting Ryan back up yet again, but this time Ryan fighting back tooth and nail whatever he can do, Ryan off the ropes BUT! He’s met with a vicious clothesline from Alex delivering that clothesline took a lot out of Alex what a hellacious clothesline.

Kawajai: Van taking control of Carpenter on the outside of the ring now, pushing him back first into the apron of the ring, now just whipping him into the barricade, Van on top of Carpenter now unleashing blows to the face of Carpenter, Van dragging Carpenter back to vertical base, Van tries to slam Carpenter into the steel steps but it’s reversed and instead Van is introduced to the steel steps instead!

Nick Angel: The action in this match is just through the roof, it is matches like these in my opinion that makes Voltage the best show in EAW, just the physicality and the will to win.

Kawajai: I couldn’t agree with you more back inside the ring, Alex is on his feet begging Ryan to get to his, almost pleading with the man! Ryan back to his feet dazed and confused, Alex standing behind him lifting him up onto his shoulders! ALEX BOWDEN HITS THRONE OF LIES ON RYAN DAVIS, Alex now scrambling for the cover, but Carpenter Munrowe trying to make his way into the ring to break up the pin, VAN BANKS has him by the legs not letting him in!

Nick Angel: The ref begins to count the pinfall, this match has got to be over Van Banks won’t allow Carpenter to get back in the ring I don’t think Van realizes or even cares what is going on at this point

Ref: ONEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘War Zone’ by World War Me plays throughout the arena as Alex Bowden celebrates his win)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner by way of pinfall! ALEXXX BOWWWDENNNNN!!!!!

Kawajai: What a great showing by the upstart Alex Bowden. He was one of the four New Breed competitors at Pain for Pride and tonight he shows exactly why!

Nick Angel: On another note though partner, I’m getting word that a very important person has just arrived to the arena and is making his way here immediately. We’ll get back to you soon!

(The camera goes to in front of the arena where a truck pulls up blasting “Noise Pollution” by Collar John as suddenly Lethal Consequences walks out. He notices the camera and looks towards it.)

LC: It’s time to get down to business. Literally.

(Highlights of Lethal Consequences career plays including him debuting at Midsummer Massacre 2008 by setting HRDO on fire, winning the tag team championships alongside CM Ronn, abandoning Ronn and pursuing a solo career that resulted in him capturing the Undisputed Hardcore Championship, fighting alongside Generation Genesis, and winning the Answers World Championship.)

(Suddenly, the camera fades back to the arena as “Blackout” by Company Flow hits to a huge ovation, Lethal Consequences makes his way out to the ring sporting an adobehouse t-shirt and some shades, he makes his way down the ramp with a confident strut handing fans CDs on his way up)

Nick Angel: And here comes Voltage’s surprise draft pick, LC! The last time we saw him in EAW prior to PFP he wasn’t necessarily in the greatest position, but today’s a new day and he looks to change all of that.

Kawajai: LC is a legend in this company and not someone to take lightly. If I know anything about LC from over the years, it’s the fact that he’s able to reinvent himself time and time again. Even in the face of adversity he makes the most of it. Now he’s back on Voltage, the brand that he helped build and the brand that won his last world championship in.

(LC stands in the middle of the ring as “Blackout” fades out as the fans are chanting “WELCOME BACK! WELCOME BACK! WELCOME BACK!”)

Lethal Consequences: …….. I guess this is the part where I say something enthusiastic and energetic to signify that I’m back in order to solicit a cheap pop from the crowd. So uhhh…. I’M BACK!

(The crowd reacts with loud cheers)

LC: Heh. It’s been quite a while I must say. Last time I was standing in the middle of an EAW ring you can say I was going through the motions, sleepwalking, not a care in the world about anything as it pertained to EAW and that translated to my work in the ring. I was over it. You can call me disgruntled, flabby old man who can’t get with the times, but at the end of the day I saw something that eventually the powers that be would eventually as well which would then result in the complete overhaul of this very company, and that is the fact that this was NOT my EAW. It hadn’t been in a while. And this wasn’t a personal issue about my treatment backstage which I’ll get to in a bit, but this was about EAW as a whole. When I walked down those halls, when I visited the corporate offices to negotiate business, everything about EAW that we knew and loved and we spent it’s formative years building into something fun and successful was turned upside down due to the selfishness of those who would later take the helm. It’s a fucking fact. You had people putting personal grudges over the betterment of the company, you had people making sure their piece of shit friendship groups flourished over everyone else, and you had people rewriting history to favor them while taking other people out because it didn’t fit their agenda. It’s how the game goes I guess, but I refused to sit there and be a part of that game, sooo… I left.

LC: I could sit here all day and dwell on the past. I could shit on those who wronged me, I can shit on the power dynamics that led to me being cast aside in the history books, cast aside every time I would make a return to this company with passive aggressive and underhanded bullshit being thrown my way. I could even shit on DEDEDE for that remark about me becoming a two time Hall of Famer at the last draft show. Especially considering the fact that he’s the guy who initially fired me in 2012 in the prime of my career in favor of slapnuts like Dark Demon who would later prove to be one of the biggest disgraces in the history of this company. But I’ve learned over the years that the best revenge is success, the best revenge is to sit back and let the decisions people make while they’re on a power trip and high horse come back to bite them in their ass like it has happened time and time again in EAW’s history. So while DEDEDE is in his power abusing circle jerk while shitting on past power abusing circle jerks and thinking that somehow he’s doing something different when in reality he’s just repeating history, I’ll be over here on Voltage restoring order. I could talk about how I came back at the tenth annual landmark setting Pain for Pride, which by the way I won the Answers World Championship at in 2011, and was thrown into a fucking battle royal alongside a bunch of jobbers and then treated like an afterthought in the 2017 EAW Draft. I won’t do any of that though.

LC: I’m not going to lie, I didn’t ever see another EAW return in my future especially after how my last run here went. I never imagined the people who were calling the shots and ruining this company alongside DEDEDE at the time to ever actually face justice and get a long overdue reality check, but EAW pleasantly surprised me and my faith was once again restored. I see how my fellow co-irrelevant from last year Scott Diamond was able to capture a world championship and become a part of a Pain for Pride headlining match, I see how Darkane, a man who was also in last years 24/7 battle royal at Pain for Pride was able to become the number one contender for a world championship and also found himself in the Pain for Pride headlining match. I look at my phone and I get a call one day about being inducted into the Hall of Fame once again due to be being a part of Generation Genesis, that was a pretty encouraging gesture. But you know what reaaallllyyyyyyy made me say “okay things are definitely different now”? WHEN THEY FINALLY BROUGHT BACK MIDSUMMER FUCKING MASSACRE. ALL THESE YEARS I BEEN PLEADING BACKSTAGE FOR THEM TO BRING BACK THE VERY DAMN EVENT THAT I DEBUTED AT AND THEY FINALLY LISTENED, ALL IS RIGHT IN LC’S WORLD!….. and then I fucking find out the shit is Showdown exclusive. That’s fine though, I’ll find myself on the card one way or another ;). Back to my prior point though, seeing Darkane and Scott both in prominent positions is when I figured, if they could turn a shitty situation from last year into the position they would later find themselves in, I don’t see why I can’t do the same thing. Tonight is the perfect opportunity and test for that. This Chris Elite guy, I don’t know much about him but I do know he has what I want, and that’s world championship gold, and I don’t see why a win over him WOULDN’T place me in direct contention. Oh wait, because I’m LC and the powers that be still have a hard-on for giving me a hard time right?! Wrong. Because I’ve ensured that “The Man” will NEVER hold me down again. I hit up an old pal of mine and we figured why not get the band back together. In order to beat the man, you have to become the man. That’s why it’s my pleasure to bring out to you all my good friend… the CFO of EAW….. ANDY DOMINGUEZ!!!!

(“For The Love of Money” by The O’Jays hits to cheers as Andy Dominguez comes through the curtains doing his signature entrance and making his way up the ramp slapping hands with fans)

Nick Angel: I can’t say that I’m sure about what’s going on here but the CFO of EAW Andy Dominguez has made his way out here by request of LC, we first saw these two men together at Pain for Pride, but what could be going on here?

Kawajai: I’ll tell you what’s going on Nick, Andy and LC go wayyyyy back, these two men practically had EAW at their will in a group named The Enterprise! It took an anonymous stockbroker to eventually knock them off of their feet, that stockbroker? Well he turned out to be Mr. DEDEDE. There’s a lot of history there Nick, there might just be unfinished business!

(Andy enters the ring and shakes hands with LC before grabbing a mic as the music dies out)

Andy: Whats up, Duluth Georgia?!

(The crowd pops in excitement)

LC: Cheap..

Andy: That’s what I’m talking about, there’s a certain type of excitement here in EAW that I haven’t felt in a very long time. A very special feeling, a feeling of hope, I can actually look forward to the future of this company without being worried about where this place will end up when it’s all said and done. Like my friend LC here, my faith has been restored in this company which has resulted in the two of us putting our hat back into the ring. But we’ll get to that later.

LC: You see, we’ve started wearing less and going out more.

(Andy looks confused at LC)

LC: No! Not like that but you know the Drake analog- fuck it. Basically, I wasn’t going to return to EAW with my excitement at an all time high just for it to be drained from me via backstage politics anymore. I wasn’t going to let my legacy be put in the hands of biased bookers with agendas. I wasn’t going to let anybody control my destiny aside from me. That’s why I’m sure this run in EAW will go a lot smoother than past ones.

Andy: EAW is a game of chess ladies and gentlemen. When I ran AWF, I was young and naivee and it cost me my company. I sat there and watched two upstarts who came from under our wing in EAW and ACW both go onto have their success while AWF became a thing of the past. That’s because I made mistakes and I lacked the experience. Even in gaining experience, five years later I once again found myself having the rug pulled from under me when my ownership of this company was taken from me. Another lesson to be learned. I didn’t understand that in this industry you have to be ten steps ahead in order to truly prosper, but now I do.

LC: We’ve fallen on our ass time and time again but these battle scars have hardened us, and taught us valuable lessons that we applied to our everyday life going forward, and now in the second, or third, or fourth? Wind of our EAW careers. Who’s really counting though? I look around and I see the confused and eager faces, just wondering what the hell we could possibly be getting at, what could we be referring to? Well perhaps Andy can do the honors.

(Andy reaches deep into his pockets as he takes out a folded paper and unfolds it before holding it up showing it off to the crowd.)

Andy: THIS! This right here is our golden ticket, this is the thing that will assure us not only career stability, but absolute POWER. You wanna know why I skipped out on that watch party alongside the rest of the board and decided to go hang out at the Poon Palace instead? Because I needed to CELEBRATE.

LC(sarcastically): But wait! How could you be celebrating in times like this? The great legendary Ronn, the man who’s handed me everything who all my success can be attributed to since my God given talent wasn’t enough. His career is over, how could this be something to celebrate?!

Andy: Well it looks like Ronn “handed” his buddy something else on his way out. You know karma has a funny way of working. Five years ago when I seemingly at the time ended the career and reign of terror of our current Voltage Commissioner and former CEO Matt Daniels for what I thought would be full control of EAW, he sold all his shares in the company to an anonymous stockbroker. For months that stockbroker caused me nothing but hell before finally revealing himself to be a returning Mr. DEDEDE whose career was supposed to have been ended at Pain 4 Pride, and then we battled for the company in what was a losing effort for LC and I. Our careers never recovered, until now.

(LC sarcastically gasps in shock)

Andy: As we all know, Ronn Banks created Elite Answers Wrestling, when he returned to this company he was a principal owner. He had his feud with Theron Nikolas in what would determine the outcome of their in-ring careers, but Ronn Banks the executive was never affected. Ronn figured if he couldn’t compete then there was no reason to be involved in this company in any capacity anymore. So him and his old Generation Genesis buddy LC met up Pain for Pride weekend and discussed business. This is chess not checkers right? Although Ronn felt he was going to win, he was fully prepared for any situation that may have occured to prevent that from happening, because like any smart successful business man does, he protected his assets. So he signed off on this very paper in my hands, that in the event of a Pain for Pride loss, passes down every LAST BIT he owned in this company…. to The Enterprise. That now means that on top of my CFO position, I also have the power that once belonged to Ronn passed down to me, alongside LC. That means that the 1% isn’t the only power hogging clique you have to worry about in EAW now hayyyy.

LC: Oh no, did we just become a power abusing circle jerk?

Andy: Don’t worry though, we aren’t here for another power struggle tug of war, we aren’t here to step on anyone’s toes or settle some old score. We’ll stay in our lane here on Voltage, we have no desire to get involved in whatever’s happening on another brand as long as it doesn’t affect us.

LC: My first order or business? Competing at Midsummer Massacre. My second order or business? Winning a world championship. With this power in my hands, NOTHING can stop me. The Blue Moon is here.

(“Blackout” picks back up as LC and Andy taunt in the ring before making their way to the back)

Kawajai: Welp, there you have it. I knew the moment Andy made his way out here business was going to pick up but I didn’t realize business was going to pick up in THIS way. This is MAJOR. I guess The Enterprise is officially back in business? This is certainly not something I expected but I’m certainly here for it!

Nick Angel: As am I, but what does this spell for our Voltage Commissioner Matt Daniels? This could get really ugly. What an announcement though, and this is just the first Voltage of the season, I can’t wait to see what becomes of this all!

(Highlights of Prince of Phenomenal successfully defending his National Elite Championship against Heart Break Boy play)

(The camera fades back into the arena as we hear “If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray blast through the arena speakers, as Prince of Phenomenal steps out through the curtains with his hood down, before pulling it up to perform his signature pose as he grins. The National Elite Championship rests across his waist as he walks down the ramp before climbing into the ring and onto the turnbuckle, doing the “PI” hand-sign.)

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL! Introducing first, from South Beach, Florida! Weighing in at 220 POOUNDDSS!!!!……HE IS YOUR EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIOOONN……PRINCE! OF! PHENOMENAALLLL!!!!!

(“6:42” by Danger then plays through the speakers as James Ranger comes out, slowly eyeing the fans to the left and right to him, as a slow smile creeps on to his face, as he stops short of the ramp, the lights focus upon just James Ranger, his sunglasses reflecting the light as it transitions from white to an eerie green. He then slides into the ring, eyeing POP intensely.)

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! From London, England! Weighing in at 243 POOUNDSSS!!!!……HE IS THE “BLACK MAMBA,” JAAAMMEEESS RAAAANNGEEEERRR!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Nick Angel: And we’re off as the bell rings, signalling the official start to this match as Ranger and POP stand across each other from the ring, appearing to have a staredown of some sorts. Now circling the ring in ready positions waiting to strike…..and they lock up in a collar-and-elbow-tie-up! Each men vying for better control in this situation but neither relenting….and it’s James Ranger with the 20-pound weight advantage, using that leverage as he pushes POP into a stiff headlock! But POP with the quick thinking runs and bounces Ranger off the ropes before he can keep it locked, as he comes off and POP plants him down with a drop toe-hold into the mat! James Ranger appears to have the wind knocked out of him from the quick thinking of Prince of Phenomenal, and it’s starting to show now as POP moves onto a mount position, attempting to barrage Ranger with elbows and forearms!

Kawajai: But Ranger manages to block these attempts, shifting his weight and pushing POP off of him! Now both men are up, but James charges in first, not allowing his opponent to get the jump on him any longer as he charges for running knife-edged chop across his chest! Ouch! And ANOTHER knife-edged chop to boot, and ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! POP’S CHEST IS SLOWLY TURNING RED AFTER THESE RAPID-FIRE CHOPS FROM JAMES RANGER THAT HE CAN’T SEEM TO DEFEND FROM! Ranger grabs POP’s wrist and irish whips him into the opposite corner before POP could react, as he charges once more…..AND LOOKS FOR AN EARLY DEATHSTRIKE?! NO! POP MOVES HIS HEAD AND DODGES THE SUPERKICK BEFORE IT COULD HIT, AS HE GRABS THE FOOT DRAPED ON THE TURNBUCKLE, AND PUSHES RANGER UP!

Nick Angel: AND SLAMS HIM DOWN FOR A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB, SMASHING HIS SPINE ACROSS THE MAT! Ranger tried to go for the kill early but was shut down by POP’s counter, as he keeps the shoulders down for the first pinfall of the match!

Referee: ONEEEE!!!!!!……TWWW—-

Kawajai: Still too early to call anybody a winner yet, Nick. POP knew this but he still tried to take the W there anyway, as he stands up and wipes sweat off his face. Still, he doesn’t look exhausted! Must be his veteran instincts and abilities that allow him to be in a match for so long without getting too tired! James is slowly regaining his bearings as he uses the ropes to pull himself upwards into a vertical base once more….BUT POP IS THERE JUST WAITING FOR HIM! HE’LL GIVE HIM TIME TO RECOVER BUT NOT TIME TO FIGHT BACK AS HE CHARGES IN FOR AN ENZIGURI – NO! RANGER DUCKS THE ENZIGURI KICK AS HE STILL KEEPS THE OTHER LEG OF POP IN HIS GRASP! AND NOW HE’S TAUNTING POP, LEG IN HAND AND LAUGHING IN HIS FACE! TRYING TO PLAY SOME MIND-GAMES! BUT PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL QUICKLY REACTS AS HE PUSHES RANGER AWAY AND ESCAPES HIM WITH A BEAUTIFUL MULE KICK! He backflips, still managing to land on his feet, BUT JAMES WON’T GIVE HIM TIME TO SPARE AS HE QUICKLY MOVES TO THE BACK OF POP, AND DROPS HIM WITH A VICIOUS GERMAN SUPLEX! RIGHT ON HIS SHOULDERS!

Nick Angel: Textbook german suplex there from James Ranger, but HE STILL KEEPS THE WAISTLOCK LOCKED IN! What’s he thinking here? Ranger keeping that waistlock as POP attempts to get out of it to no avail – he has that grip on tight! He’s now on his feet with the lock still attached…..AS HE SPINS POP AROUND AND GRABS HIS ARMS FOR A SNAP SUPLEX! WOW! He transitioned wonderfully from the waistlock into that snap suplex, as he returns the favor from earlier by slamming Prince of Phenomenal onto the mat with a quick but deadly snap suplex! And James Ranger wastes no time as he moves down to POP…..AND HE STEPS OVER THE LEG, PULLING BACK HIS HEAD WITH HIS LEGS AND HOLDING ONTO THE ARM FOR THE COILED EMBRACE! THE COILED EMBRACE! THE MANJI-GATAME, OR OCTOPUS HOLD AS MANY OF US MAY RECOGNIZE IS IN FORCE HERE AND IS COMPLETELY TEARING POP APART! HE HAS THAT HOLD LOCKED IN TIGHT, AND POP RIGHT NOW IS SCRAMBLING TO FIND A WAY TO ESCAPE! I can’t believe that these two are equally matched to each other, but I shouldn’t be surprised, since they’ve traded wins and losses with each other ever since they met, and tonight is no different as we have seen is a wrestling clinic! POP trying to inch himself closer and closer to the ropes, slowly stepping forward….BUT JAMES IS PULLING BACK EVEN HARDER! IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE HE CAN ESCAPE – BUT POP RUSHES FORWARD AND MANAGES TO SLAM HIMSELF ACROSS THE ROPES, EFFECTIVELY BREAKING THE SUBMISSION HOLD!

Kawajai: Well, that’s one way to do it! Ranger is forced to let go as the referee counts, wanting them to break up, and James relents much to his disdain! POP is saved from what could have been a match-ending maneuver right there, as James himself is exhausted from putting in the force from that submission! These two men equally going back and forth between each other throughout the match, and it doesn’t seem there’s any sign of stoppage between them! But Jame is not finished – he wants to end this match, right here, right now! HE CHARGES AND CONNECTS WITH A CLOTHESLINE RIGHT INTO POP, BEFORE HE STEPS OUTSIDE AND BEGINS TO SCALE THE TURNBUCKLE! HERE HE COMES! HE’S PERCHED! I FEAR FOR POP’S SAFETY AS JAMES LINES UP FOR HIS SIGNATURE MOVE……AND HE LEAPS! ADVENT DAWN! THE SHOOTING STAR DOUBLE FOOT-STOMP – WAIT! PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL LEAPS UP AND CATCHES RANGER MID-AIR! WOAH! HOLY SHIT! HE HAS HIM IN THE POSITION FOR…..A CROWN OF THORNS! THE CROWN OF THORNS! THE STYLES CLASH CONNECTS AS HE TURNS HIM OVER FOR THE PIN AND THE WIN! WOOWWW!!

Referee: ONEEEEE!!!!….TWOOOO!!!!!!!……THREEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray plays throughout the arena as POP is exhausted but victorious, a smile across his face as the referee pulls him up and raises his arm in victory.)

Bella Braxton: AND HERE IS YOUR WINNER…….PRINCE! OF! PHENOMMENAAALLL!!!

Nick Angel: And The National Elite Champion scores the win here tonight, but it was not easy by any stretch of the imagination! James gave POP a run for his money and almost won, but it was POP’s ingenuity and integrity that kept him alive for the match, before he ended it with a brutal counter to the Advent Dawn with the Crown of Thorns, catching him in mid-air! I’m still in disbelief, wow!

(Matt Daniels is shown sitting in his office on the phone)

Matt Daniels: Yes, I’m very pleased with the uptick in ratings in ratings since Voltage since April. While the merger with REVOLT was a great help, I feel like Chris Elite was the largest factor in all of this. Week after week we would have a peak in ratings whenever Chris showed up, that’s just not a coincidence. That’s why it was essential to keep him on our brand in the draft and we accomplished our goal.

……..

Matt Daniels: Life after Chris? Listen Dave, Chris is the face of this brand and a cash cow for EAW as a whole, why would we need to be preparing for life after Chris when he’s in the prime of his career?

………

Matt Daniels: I understand nothing lasts forever but either way we’ll be in good hands. I am very pleased with the roster we were able to draft last week. It’s a perfect balance of future stars and current stars. This season will truly make new stars, guys like Daryl Kinkade, Charlie Marr, Noah Reigner, they can all make a huge step here on Voltage this season. And you can’t forget the seasoned vets and current stars like Chris Elite of course, Rex, Devan Dubian, LC, P-

????: PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL.

(Matt jumps in shock as POP barges through the door mid-convo)

Matt Daniels: Hey Dave I’ll call you back. (click)

POP: You done talking about how excited you are about everybody on this brand besides me?

Matt Daniels: :whoa: I was just about to get to your nam-

POP: Bullshit. But I don’t care, I’m not here for moral boosters. I’m here to prove people like you wrong. I do that by kicking ass and taking names in that ring. James Ranger, he’s a little punk who I’ve slapped around several times in the past so I’m EXPECTED to win. I just came off of one of the biggest victories in my career by defeating HBB at PFP. I didn’t come to Voltage for charity CC, I came here to take the brand over and eventually win a world championship, give me more competition.

Matt Daniels: You’re right. You’re a Hall of Famer in the midst of one of the greatest second winds I have ever witnessed. There’s only one way to truly showcase your talents. So how about this, next week you face the World Heavyweight Champion himself! Chris Elite, in a champion vs champion match!

POP: Now that’s what I’m talking about.

(POP walks off excitedly as the camera transitions to Noah Reigner standing by backstage with Sofia Clarke)

Sofia Clarke: Please welcome my guest at this time, Mr. Cash in the Vault, Noah Reigner! Now Noah, I know you’ve seen Lars’ message earlier tonight with his “history lesson”, can we get a response?

Noah: Nah, I’ll let Lars continue yelling at a Cloud that he can’t reach. I’m not worried about that dude, he’s holding on for dear life to any type of relevance he can get and since I’m the hottest name in the company right now… well it’s no surprise that he chose me. He can project his failure to reach his expectations and potential in his disappointment of a career onto other people all he wants, but that isn’t my destiny. That’s all I gotta say about that.

(Noah walks off as Sofia Clarke looks on)

(The camera cuts back to the arena and the thousands in attendance as “What A Shame” by Too Close to Touch plays throughout the arena, as Daryl Kinkade steps out of the curtains, raising his arms for his signature pose to greet the crowd. He then walks down the ramp before sliding into the ring and climbing the turnbuckle, before performing a backflip from the top down to the mat.)

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL! Introducing first, from Norwich, England! Weighing in at 215 POOOUNDSSS!!!!…..”NORFOLK’S FINEST,” DAAAARYYLLLLL KIIIINNKKKKKAAAAAADEEEEEE!!!!!

(“Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem rips through the stage as the hook of the song blasts, and Noah Reigner walks out, Cash in the Vault Briefcase in hand with Evelyn Ridley trailing not too far behind. He wears his signature “ASSAULT RIFLE” outfit and jacket, as he slides into the ring, hurling insults at the crowd and at Daryl before doing his Assault Rifle pose, firing a shot into the camera.)

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! Being accompanied by Evelyn Ridley! from Seattle, Washington, and representing the Combat Church! Weighing at 184 POOOUNDSSSS!!!!! He is “THE ASSAULT RIFLE,”…….NOOOAHHH REEEEIIIGNNNNEERRR!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Kawajai: The bell rings, which means the match has begun, as Noah Reigner and Daryl Kinkade quickly meet each other in the center of the ring with a collar-and-elbow tie-up! Both men looking to find the upper hand over the other in this test of ability….but it’s Kinkade who gains the immediate advantage as he shifts around and grabs Reigner in a waistlock! He has that locked in tight, but Noah manages to escape by twisting the fingers of Daryl! That’s an illegal move but he stops before the referee can reprimand him for that, as his opponent lets out a grunt of pain, Noah twisting his arm in a way that it’s not meant to! Daryl is in slight pain, but not too much that he is left incapacitated as he performs a combat roll to escape out of the grasp of Noah Reigner, reaching behind him with a hammerlock! But Reigner throws an elbow back to Kinkade – THAT’S DUCKED! Daryl ducks the back elbow as the men shift position and Daryl is now pushing his opponent into the ropes, forcing him to bounce off! Reigner rebounds off the opposite ropes, going for a running attack but DARYL LEAPFROGS OVER HIM WITH GREAT AGILITY! WOW!

Nick Angel: He’s a fast and agile competitor, Kawaj, and we know this from his time here in EAW and his tag team with Charlie Marr! He had a great showing at Pain for Pride, unfortunately losing but tonight he does not want to waste an opportunity to bring down the current holder of the Cash in the Vault briefcase, who is now running off the ropes once more! Daryl drops down onto his belly as Noah steps over him, both men standing up once more as Daryl charges for the STEP-UP ENZIGURI – NOPE! Reigner ducks the kick as Kinkade lands face-first onto the mat! Noah sees this as an opportunity to strike as he runs off the ropes and comes back with a SLIDING FOREARM SMASH STRAIGHT INTO HIS FACE, AND ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AFTER THAT FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP TO HIS STERNUM! Kinkade lets out a groan of agony, sitting up once more, which allows Noah to have yet another opportunity to assault Daryl…..WITH A BRUTAL KNEE SMASH TO HIS FACE! AND ANOTHER! A THIRD! A FOURTH! Those BRUTAL grounded knee strikes to his head are making Daryl’s eyes roll to the back of his head, before Noah finishes off the combo…..running off the ropes and COMING BACK WITH LOUD RUNNING SHOOT KICK ACROSS THE CHEST OF KINKADE! OUCH! AND NOAH GOES FOR THE FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH, WILL IT BE IT?!

Referee: ONEEEEEEE!!!!!……..TWWOOOO!!!!

Kawajai: KICK OUT BY DARYL! He needs to find a way ASAP to escape out of the predicament that he is in right now, or else he’ll be in for a bad time for the rest of the match! Daryl shoots up from the cover, as Noah looks almost frustrated that he hasn’t managed to put him down yet! Noah stands up, grabbing Kinkade’s face as he does it, lifting him back up to a vertical base…..grabbing his head, AND LIFTS HIM UP IN A SUPLEX LIFT! HE MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR THAT FACEBUSTER ON THE KNEE, BUT DARYL STOPS ANY CHANCE OF THAT AS HE SLIPS THROUGH THE HANDS OF REIGNER, LANDING BEHIND HIM! Noah turns around quickly though to react – BUT DARYL QUICKLY ATTACKS WITH A STIFF FOREARM TO HIS FACE! NOW THIS TIME A RIGHT HOOK! ANOTHER RIGHT HOOK! A SHOOT KICK TO THE LEG! Daryl Kinkade is making a comeback ladies and gentlemen, AS HE LETS OUT A ROAR OF DETERMINATION! DARYL GOES FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK…..AND IT STRIKES LOUDLY AGAINST THE SIDE OF NOAH’S HEAD, ECHOING THROUGHOUT THE ARENA! YIKES!

Nick Angel: Reigner slumps down from the surprise comeback by Kinkade, dropping to his knees in a heft, as Daryl runs back off the ropes……AND GOES FOR ONE OF HIS SIGNATURE MOVES, AFTER MIDNIGHT! THE SHINING WIZARD…..DOES NOT CONNECT AS REIGNER CATCHES THE LEG BEFORE IT COULD DO ANYMORE SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE! UH OH! THIS IS NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR DARYL, WITH NOAH HAVING THAT LEG IN HIS GRASP! He taunts Kinkade, laughing at his face as you can see Reigner’s manager, Evelyn Ridley off to the side cheering Noah on! NOAH MOVES DARYL CLOSER AND SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A HIGH IMPACT STO! ST-NOAH! That classic move from Reigner in play as Daryl is once again on the mat, Noah turning to face the crowd and give Ridley a thumbs up…..BUT WHAT’S THIS?! DARYL KIPS UP! HE IS NOT GOING TO LET THAT MOVE AFFECT HIM AS NOAH TURNS AROUND, SURPRISED TO SEE DARYL UP! Don’t blame him, me and Kawaj are surprised too! NOAH CHARGES FOR A FOREARM – THAT DARYL DUCKS UNDER, RUNNING OFF THE ROPES BUT NOT REBOUNDING BACK! NO, HE…..SPRINGS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE FOR THE D! K! O!

Kawajai: THAT SPRINGBOARD CUTTER SENDING NOAH DOWN TO THE MAT BEAUTIFULLY! Noah is almost out like a light, barely gaining his bearings as Kinkade is on fire and hyped up! He is ready to end this match, and do it his way as he lets out another roar of confidence, the crowd responding accordingly as he lifts Noah back up! He crosses his legs, AND LIFTS HIM UP FOR THE BEAUTIFUL LIE! WAIT! NOAH IS FIGHTING IT! HE’S FIGHTING IT, HE’S STILL GOT LIFE IN HIM AS HE SENDS DOWN ELBOWS AND FISTS TO THE DOME OF KINKADE….AND KINKADE DROPS HIM! LEAVING NOAH JUST ENOUGH TIME TO RESPOND WITH THE KILL SHOT! OH MY! THE KILL SHOT CONNECTS RIGHT THEN AND THERE! THE BICYCLE KNEE STRIKING HIM RIGHT IN THE FRONT OF HIS FACE AND DOWN GOES DARYL! NOAH IS THE VICTOR OF THIS MATCH, PEOP – WAIT, WHAT THE HELL?!

(The camera cuts to the entrance ramp as a spotlight shines on Lars Grier walking down the ramp, the fans booing him and throwing garbage as Noah looks at him in surprise.)

Nick Angel: THAT’S LARS GRIER! WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING HERE?! IS IT BECAUSE OF THE EXCHANGE THAT THE TWO MEN HAD AT THE DRAFT SHOW?!

Kawajai: PROBABLY, NICK! The fans are absolutely tearing into this man tonight but Lars doesn’t seem to care, he seems intent on one thing – ruining Noah Reigner’s match tonight! Evelyn Ridley, Noah’s manager tries to stop him – AND OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! LARS JUST THREW RIDLEY INTO THE BARRICADE BY HER HAIR, OH MY! JESUS, SHE’S A WOMAN! THE FANS ARE BOOING HIM EVEN MORE NOW AND I THINK NOAH HAS HAD ENOUGH, AS HE SLINGSHOTS OVER THE ROPES AND LANDS A PLANCHA ON GRIER ON THE OUTSIDE!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Nick Angel: LOOKS LIKE THERE WON’T BE AN OFFICIAL ENDING TO THIS MATCH AS NOAH AND LARS ARE NOW BRAWLING AT RINGSIDE, HOLY! THEY ARE BEATING THE EVER-LIVING HELL OUT OF EACH OTHER AND THERE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE AN END IN SITE! LARS AND NOAH TRADING LEFTS AND RIGHTS WITH EACH OTHER AS ONLY NOW SECURITY IS COMING IN TO TRY AND BREAK THEM UP, AS THEY BEGIN TO HURL INSULTS AT EACH OTHER FROM AFAR! BOTH MEN WANTING A PIECE OF EACH OTHER, THIS RIVALRY GOT HEATED REAL QUICK!

(Security rushes in from backstage as they stop the two men from brawling, getting in between each other with Commissioner Daniels in the middle trying to stop both men.)

Kawajai: Security is now dragging both men away from each other at the behest of Commisioner Daniels who is in the middle of both men, also trying to separate the two as Lars Grier and Noah Reigner continue to stare each other down – Lars at the entrance ramp and Noah at ringside! WOW! This feud just got a hell of a lot more brutal, heated, and personal now with what Lars has done! Fucking hell…..

(Highlights of Pain for Pride Festival’s concerts play including A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, 6ix9ine, Meek Mill, & Reza Kordestani’s manager)

(Rex McAllister and Charlie Marr are shown backstage taping up their fists in the locker room)

Rex: I’m glad we were able to stay on the same brand. I have a lot to still teach you and Daryl, if you’re still willing to learn that is.

Charlie: We certainly are, if we want to reach that level of capturing world championships and headlining Pain or Prides, then you are the man to follow. We’ll do whatever it takes to prove ourselves.

(Daryl just walks in from his prior match mid convo as he begins to untape)

Rex: That’s the spirit. Pain for Pride wasn’t ideal for any of us. But we learned from the experiences and we’ll go from there and apply what we learned all season 12 as we take over this brand. I look forward to competing alongside you guys.

Charlie: Thanks man, my match is up next though so I should be getting ready to make my way out. Good luck with that number one contenders match, kill em dead out there.

Rex: That’s the plan.

(The two shake hands as Charlie makes his way out and Rex looks on)

(Camera transitions back to the ring)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for One Fal!!!

(‘FTW (F**k the World)’ by A$AP Rocky & Tom Morello plays as Lars Grier comes out to a sea of boos. Heading down the ramp, head hung as he climbs into the ring).

Bella Braxton: Introducing first…. From Cincinnati, Ohio, weighing in at 265lbs….. LARS GRIER!!!!!!

Nick Angel: It hasn’t been a good road for Grier since Brooklyn Heights. Going from nearly pinning Jamie O’hara, to loosing again, and again, and again. Every week. The man who at the end of last year, was a hot commodity, stands here humble and humiliated.

Kawajai: I don’t know what’s gotten into Lars recently….. I mean, he was the face of Voltage’s new generation for crying out loud. Now look… barely making ends meet. Here’s hoping Lars can find a way to rebound in this match. Maybe we’ll see a new resurgence within “the raven”.

(‘The Charming Man’ by The Smiths plays to a mixed reaction, as Charlie Marr comes out, confident, cool headed, and ready as he enters the ring against grier).

Bella Braxton: And his opponent….. London, England, weighing in at 240lbs…. CHARLIE MARR!!!!!

Nick Angel: And here comes the second half of one of the most dangerous tag teams of the division right now. Charlie Marr has been most known for his tag competition with Daryl, but it doesn’t mean he’s not capable of handling himself on his own.

Kawajai: But he stands against a man who’s taken on World Title contenders week after week, pulled a lot of weight and momentum during Voltage’s no way out match. I don’t know how Marr will beat Grier, but it’s going to need to be spectacular.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!).

Nick Angel: And Lars Grier staring things off- Drop Kick to Charlie Marr!!! But Marr side steps it!!!! Grier sent flying into the turnbuckle!!! Already starting things off strong, Grier rising to his feet- Shoot Kick to Grier’s thigh!!!! Grier turning around- BIG right hand from Lars Grier!!!! But Charlie ducks under- Knee to the back of Lars Grier!!!!!

Kawajai: The raven looks PISSED!!!!!! Grier turning around- KNEE TO THE CHEST OF GRIER!!!!! Grier buckles forward, as Marr wraps an arm around his head- SNAP SUPELX!!!!!! NO!!! Grier pressures down with his weight- AND COUNTERS WITH A SNAP SUPLEX TO CHARLIE MARR!!!!!!! In the matter of seconds, the momentum switches to Grier!!!! And It looks like he’s giving Marr NO CHANCE to recover- ROCKET KICK TO MARR!!!!! Charlie goes stumbling back into the turnbuckle, and Lars lays in with a BARRAGE OF STRIKES!!!!!

Nick Angel: The Referee’s telling Grier to ease up and back off, Grier not listening!!!

Referee: ONE!!!!! TWO!!!!! THREE!!!!!! FOUR!!!!

Nick Angel: -A furious Grier gets in the face of the referee, “This is a Fight!!” I think he mouthed. Grier’s gotta keep that temper under control- KICK TO THE KNEE OF LARS GRIER!!!!! Grier’s left leg gives out as he drops to a knee- RUNNING KNEE LIFT BY CHARLIE!!!!! Grier Is leveled, Marr standing Grier up, he’s got a grip- THE HEAD MASTER RITUAL!!!!!! SPINEBUSTAH!!!- NO!!!!!! GRIER WRAPS HIS LEGS AROUND CHARLIE AND LOCKS IN A TRIANGLE CHOKE!!!!!! GRIER’S BACK HITS THE GROUND!!!!! TRIANGLE CHOKE ON CHARLIE MARR!!!!

Kawajai: Charlie is feeling the PRESSURE!!!! A twenty five pound weight advantage!!!! Marr is grunting, there’s no way he’s gonna be able to muscle his way out…. Wait, he’s standing on his legs, he’s pressuring Grier- Grier’s shoulders are on the matt, The Referee counts!!!!!

Nick Angel: Grier breaks the hold just in time, and sends Charlie staggering back with a kick to the Face!!!!! Grier’s had enough, he’s racing towards the ring ropes, I think we know what’s coming, he rebounds- RAVENBEAK- NO!!!!!!! CHARLIE MARR COUNTERS WITH A VICIOUS BIG BOOT!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!).

(‘The Charming Man’ by The Smiths plays as Charlie Marr rises to his feet, and the referee raises his hand in victory).

Bella Braxton: And HERE IS YOUR WINNER!!!!!! CHARLIE MARR!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nick Angel: And with that Marr – Kinkade brand of cleverness, Charlie Marr beats the former World Heavyweight Contender in a battle of Technique Versus Aggression!!!! Charlie Marr is starting off his Voltage Career with a BANG!!!!! And I can’t WAIT to see what he’s going to do next!!!!

Kawajai: But…. I have to wonder, where the hell does Grier go from here?

(The Camera pans over Lars Grier, banging his fist into the ground in frustration, and transitions over to a victorious Charlie Marr standing on the turnbuckle in victory as the camera fades out….)

(Highlights of Jacob Moore coming up short against Nobi at Reasonable Doubt 2018 play and his exit from the company)

(As the show returns to the Infinite Energy Arena, the beginning notes of “Today” by The Smashing Pumpkins begin to ring throughout the arena. The song then drops into a heavier more distorted section as Jacob Moore steps onto the stage to a generally mixed reaction. He is dressed in an all black Hugo Boss suit, a stark contrast to his still bleach blonde hair, and soaks in the crowd for a few seconds as he stretches out his arms. Moore makes his way down the ramp with a smirk on his face, even tagging a few fans’ hands as he gets closer to the steel steps.)

Kawajai: Now here’s a man who hasn’t been seen since February of this year! After a tough loss at Reasonable Doubt, the next night, he was shockingly fired from Showdown!

Nick Angel: That’s right, Kawa, how despicable! As far as I’m concerned, he has a home here on Voltage. No funny business. This is where the real ones fight it out, anyway, and before his disappearance, he was on fire! I hope he can continue that.

Kawajai: His sights were set on the prestigious National Elite Championship then held by Nobi which has seemed to follow him to his new brand. Now it is held by another new addition to the roster, Prince of Phenomenal.

(Jacob then pauses once again whilst standing on top of the steps before nodding once and entering the ring. He is immediately handed a microphone by an official and “Today” dies down. He glances around the arena once more taking in the crowd before raising the mic to his lips.)

Jacob: I know what’s on all of your minds. “Why the hell is this guy back again?”. I asked myself the same thing prior to the Draft. My last run ended on a bad note, I’ll admit. Yeah, I had a great showing at Reasonable Doubt but I still lost and for something I spent so much time working for only to come out empty-handed, it hit me pretty hard. I’ve experienced loss before, it’s nothing new, but I had the National Elite Championship basically in my hands already when it was ripped away from me and things like that never sit quite right with me.

(A few small cheers from members of the crowd as Jacob’s facial expression turns into that of a more serious one.)

Jacob: Many times, I’ve come out here or pressed record on my stupid phone and told my fans that “This is it! I will finally win a title here in EAW! Worry no longer after this and be sure of your support of me because it’s only up from here!”..only to be smacked back down to the ground by the hands of whatever God you believe in and come out utterly embarrassed. Reasonable Doubt was no different. I couldn’t let my lasting impression on this company, or the lasting legacy – if you could even call it that – of my career as a whole be losing every big opportunity I fought so hard to get in the first place.

And that’s what brings me back once again. I’m not gonna stand up here and make empty promises, I’m just gonna show you which is what at one point in history I solely prided myself on doing. I wasn’t much of a talker at all but you’d be an idiot to think I wasn’t coming down to this ring and kicking some ass. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know how my first few months in EAW went. They were promising, I was called a “rising star” and a ‘“future champion”. I was undefeated for those months. I didn’t let not one guy get in my face and tell me I couldn’t do something. I spit in his eye and told him to shut the fuck up before I dropped him on his head. Those were the days.

(The crowd pops for the mention as Jacob smiles.)

Jacob: Yeah, good times. I realize I lost that fire not long after, and I really don’t have a good excuse for it. When you’ve been in this business as long as I have, sometimes your motivation wavers. You don’t know if it’s time to hang it up or if you’re just going through a rough patch and can bounce back. After February, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I know I wasn’t the one pinned and I could take some solace in that but what mattered was having that gold on me, and I didn’t have that. I went back to Chicago with nothing to be proud of and that hurt the most. I’m not here to get emotional on you or anything of the sort because I may be a bit more tame and cleaned up these days but I’m still no pansy, I’m just sharing my thoughts on the whole matter and how important that day was, how it impacted me going forward.

Now, I answer your question. Why is Jacob Moore back again? Certainly not to lose, I’ll tell you that. My name doesn’t leave anybody intimidated anymore, instead it garners a scoff. I’ve tainted my own image and I have no one to blame but myself in reality but I’m a man and I own up to my mistakes. It wasn’t my fault I was fired from Showdown and replaced by better prospects, I wasn’t putting in the work to tell management I deserved otherwise, truthfully but that ends now. I am thankful that I’ve been granted this opportunity to prove myself worthy once again and it won’t be wasted, I assure you. I’m on a show I’ve never been on before, I’m starting with a clean slate. I’m out here right now to put everybody on notice. What you think you know about me and any previous opinion on me that you’ve had – throw it in the fucking garbage because that’s the past. I’m here to be a champion. I don’t give a damn who I have to go through to do it, that’s the goal and nobody can stop me from achieving that but myself – and well, I don’t even think myself is enough to do that now and that’s a warning for the rest of you in the back.

GIVE ME REX MCALLISTER, GIVE ME LETHAL CONSEQUENCES, GIVE ME SCOTT DIAMOND, GIVE ME DARYL KINKADE, GIVE ME XANDER PAYNE, GIVE ME PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL, GIVE ME NOAH REIGNER, GIVE ME MY OLD FRIEND CHRIS ELITE, GIVE ME THE DAMN WOOGIEMAN AND ONE WAY OR ANOTHER I WILL KNOCK. THEM. ALL. DOWN. THERE’S NO MORE WATCHING FROM THE SIDELINES. NO MORE HIDING WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH. NO MORE QUESTIONING MYSELF AND MY ACTIONS, I KNOW WHO THE HELL I AM AND WHAT I’M CAPABLE OF!

(Jacob takes off his suit jacket before throwing it down on the mat.)

I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU’VE DONE OR WHO YOU ARE, LOOK AT THIS FACE AND REMEMBER IT. YOU WILL BE SEEING IT IN YOUR NIGHTMARES, YOU WILL BE SEEING IT AFTER I SMACK THE TASTE OUT OF YOUR MOUTH AND PUT YOU ON YOUR ASS AND AFTER I SNATCH WHATEVER TITLE I CHOOSE TO GO AFTER, YOU WILL SEE IT ON THE BILLBOARDS AND ADVERTISEMENTS AND EVENTUALLY IN THE MAIN EVENTS OF SHOWS YOU WILL BE CURTAIN JERKING ME ON! I. DON’T. GIVE. A. DAMN. IF YOU’RE NEW HERE OR A HALL OF FAMER, YOU ARE AN ENEMY. EVERYBODY IS THE ENEMY. I CAME HERE ALONE, I’VE WON ALONE, I’VE LOST ALONE AND THAT IS HOW I WILL CONTINUE TO RUN.

(The camera zooms in closely on Jacob from the shoulders up as he pauses. He is almost entirely red in the face and seething with anger as a few sweat beads make their way down his face and his blue eyes are open wide.)

(He then suddenly looks down at the mat and chuckles to himself for a second as his voice is now more quiet and deep.)

Jacob: From this point forward, this is my show. I will be the shining star, I will be in the highlight reels, I will be on the posters, I will be representing this brand and company as it should be represented. Whether I have a belt to my name or not, the end game never changes and I will still be the best athlete on this entire roster and there won’t be anything anybody can say or do about it except fight me like REAL MEN only to get dropped like the LITTLE BOYS I expose them for because where I come from, my background, none of you motherfuckers would dare put yourselves through such hell but me? I’ll take it every chance I get. THIS IS MY SHOW and MY Voltage is represented with passion, valiance, and most importantly..

(He looks back up at the camera again, staring directly into the lens now.)

Jacob: Violence. And just when you think I’ve gone too far, I’ll take it one step further. There is no length I will stop at to get what I desire and what I desire is GLORY and RESPECT. And when I’m done, my name will no longer be associated with mediocrity of any level, it will only be associated with “THE BEST”.

(Moore throws the mic to the ground behind him as “Today” picks back up and he relishes in the mixed crowd reaction once more with a cold look on his face.

Nick Angel: What a statement by the newest addition to Voltage, Jacob Moore! If I was still in that locker room, I’d definitely be on watch.

Kawajai: I think I got chills, Angel.

(The scene then fades elsewhere.)

(A split screen of Scott Diamond, Devan Dubian, and Rex McAllister making their way down the hall is shown as the crowd cheers. A graphic text shows: Number One Contenders Match – NEXT!)

(Commercial Break)

(“Still Unbroken” Lynyrd Skynyrd begins to play as Rex McAllister emerges onto the stage to cheers from the crowd. He walks down the ramp and into the ring.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is a triple threat match. The winner of this match will become the Number 1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. Introducing first, from Sea Isle, New Jersey, weighing 238 pounds… REXXXX MCCAAALLLISSTERRRRR!

(“Shook Ones” by Mobb Deep begins to play as the crowd begins to boo heavily. Scott Diamond walks onto the stage with a annoyed look on his face. He walks down the ramp and into the ring where he faces his opponent.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Long Island, New York, weighing 280 pounds… SCOTTTTT DIAAAMONNDDDDD!

( “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by Foo Fighters begins to play as the crowd goes back to cheering heavily. Devan Dubian emerges with a look of confidence as he quickly comes to the ring to meet his opponents.)

Bella Braxton: Finally, from Leicester, England, United Kingdom, weighing 230 pounds… DEEVANNNN DUBBBIAANNNNNN!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Kawajai: This match features 3 former world champions and 2 Hall of Famers. The winner of this match could once again earn the right to call themselves world champion. Scott Diamond comes charges right at the beginning. He just lost his Answers World Championship to Darkane at Pain for Pride! HE JUMPS ON REX AND UNLOADS! HE THROWS A FLURRY OF FISTS INTO THE ABDOMEN OF REX! HE NOW ELBOWS HIM IN THE JAW! A RUTHLESS ASSAULT HERE BY SCOTT DIAMOND! NOW DEVAN DUBIAN COMES IN FOR A CLOTHESLINE FROM BEHIND! SCOTT DUCKS AND GETS BEHIND HIM! HE LOCKS HIS HANDS AROUND THE WAIST OF DUBIAN AND EXECUTES A HUGE GERMAN SUPLEX!

Nick Angel: Dubian crashes into the mat below! Scott goes back to Rex but Rex catches him off guard with a huge knee to the gut! Scott doubles over immediately in pain from that fierce blow by Rex! REX PULLS HIM IN AND LIFTS HIM UP! HE DROPS HIM BACK DOWN FOR A BIG POWER BOMB! Scott pulls himself up with the ropes! Rex is laying in wait! He knows just how dangerous Scott Diamond is! HE CHARGES FOR A BICYCLE KICK! REX IS THERE BUT SCOTT SEES IT COMING! HE QUICKLY PULLS DOWN THE TOP ROPE AND REX’S LEG GETS CAUGHT ON IT!

Rex is up on the outside and Devan Dubian is unaware! Rex grabs the foot of Dubian and pulls him down as Dubian crashes down! REX PULLS HIM OUT OF THE RING WITH A TON OF FORCE AS DUBIAN FALLS FLAT TO GROUND OUTSIDE! Dubian gets to his knees and Rex wastes little time in kicking him in the ribs! He pulls Dubian up and executes a tilt-whirl-backbreaker!

Nick Angel: Rex McAllister recently lost his EAW Championship to Diamond Cage at Pain for Pride. He now has an opportunity to become the number 1 contender for Chris Elite’s World Heavyweight Championship. He lifts Dubian up. While doing so, he looks back behind him at the ring apron! He gets him in Suplex Position! HE LIFTS DUBIAN UP… AND DROPS HIM DOWN FOR A BIG SUPLEX ON THE RING APRON! DUBIAN ROLLS AROUND IN PAIN AS HE BACK CRASHES INTO IT! SCOTT DIAMOND NOW COMES IN WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE!

Kawajai: Rex is knocked back close to the ramp as he goes down! Scott Diamond follows him as he exits the ring beside Dubian who is still laid out on the apron! Rex rolls onto his knees. SCOTT DIAMOND GRABS HIS ARM AND PULLS HIM TO HIS FEET… BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! REX FLIES TO RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE RING! Scott quickly comes at him again! HE MANHANDLES HIM AS HE PICKS HIM UP! HE’S ATTEMPTING ANOTHER BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! REX KNOWS HOW DANGEROUS THIS POSITION CAN BE! HE HEADBUTTS SCOTT! HE NOW GRABS SCOTT HIMSELF AND EXECUTES A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX OF HIS DOWN!

Nick Angel: Rex McAllister is able to fend off Scott Diamond. Devan Dubian is up on the apron and he kicks Rex in the back of the head as Rex was unable to see him! Rex stumbles forward from the blow! DUBIAN RUNS ACROSS THE APRON AND LEAPS OFF AND HITS A FLYING RUNNING KNEE INTO THE BACK OF REX! Dubian now focuses on Scott Diamond! He quickly rolls Scott into the ring while he’s still feeling the affects of that suplex from earlier! Dubian assists Scott in getting to a vertical base. Once he does, Devan takes advantage! He elbows him in the jaw, furthering staggering him! He pulls him in and executes a flawless move! INVERTED HEADLOCK BACK BREAKER! DUBIAN NOW GETS ON TOP OF SCOTT AS HE HOOKS A LEG TO MAKE THE COVER!

ONEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Still Unbroken” Lynyrd Skynyrd begins to play as the crowd explodes. Rex McAllister stumbles to his feet as he begins to celebrate in the middle of the ring.)

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… AND THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP… REXX MCCAALLISSTERRRR!

Kawajai: Rex does it! He will now face Chris Elite for the World Heavyweight Championship! Scott Diamond and Devan Dubian were so close!

Nick Angel: Scott hit the Vortex and thought he had it won. Rex then came in with The Rex Effect to pull of the victory. I hope Chris is watching, because he just got his first challenge of season 12, and quite possibly his last as World Heavyweight Champ if Rex can keep this up.

(Chris Elite is seen walking backstage with the WHC slapped over his shoulders as the sight of him solicits a thunderous reaction of cheers from the crowd. He has on Beats by Axl headphones as he’s singing a song in the zone, in his own world.)

Chris: :singing: Kiki, do you love me?! Are you riding?! Say you’ll never ever leave from beside m-

(Chris stops in his tracks before noticing somebody standing there as he pauses his music and takes off his headphones.)

Chris: Hey there little dude from across the hall!

(Woogieman is shown standing there with his “Big Boogie Bhampionship” in hand as the two embrace.)

Chris: How’s it been man? I see you’re holding that championship and challenging my spot as the top guy here on Voltage.

Woogie: I’ve been better, I lost tonight.

Chris: Hey man turn that frown upside down and be happy. Things could be much worse ya know. You’re still the champ and that’s all that matters.

Woogie: You’re right. I want to thank you for giving me an opportunity by the way. I wouldn’t have this without you.

Chris: No problem man, even though it should still be called the Big Bhris Bhampionship and not whatever unseasoned garbage it mutated to once it left NEO, but hey like I said things could be worse!

Woogie: So where do you think I should go from here in order to bounce back?

Chris: Just uhh… name it the Big Bhris Bhampionship and all of your problems will be solved!

Woogie: You really think so?

Chris: I know so.

(Woogieman is seen deeply pondering the idea)

Woogieman: I’ll strongly consider that, thanks dad.

(Chris pats Woogie on the head as Woogie walks away excited. Chris starts to continue walking until suddenly he’s approached by Sofiia Clarke)

Sofia: Chris! Chris! Do you have a moment?

Chris: I always have a moment for you ma :mjlit:. Wassup?

Sofia: Last week we talked about your future and you claimed you were “chasing history” in hopes of topping Jamie O’Hara’s record. With the latest developments on the Voltage brand such as you finally knowing who your #1 Contender is and Lethal Consequences basically being in control of his own destiny with your championship in his sights, are you still confident about your goals?

Chris: I’m lowkey insulted you’d even ask that. With all due respect to Rex… what is a Rex McAllister to a Big Bloody Bhris? I’m very familiar with Rex, we’ve teamed in the past, we’ve faced off in the past. But at the end of the day both of us walked into Pain for Pride with world championships…… but only one of us walked out the same way. As far as LC and his bombshell announcement, that’s cool I guess but lets not forget I still have a Gawd Contract, so if we wants to get into a game of abusing power I’m with the shits all day. But if we gonna be honest, that oldhead should be focused on staying in EAW for more than 3 months this time before thinking he can just be handed a world title. Now if you’ll excuse me ima go kick his ass in the ring.

(Chris Elite walks off)

Kawajai: Our main event of the evening, Chris Elite vs Lethal Consequences…. NEXT!

(Commercial break)

(Voltage comes back on air as “Blackout” by Company Flow hits as Lethal Consequences walks down the aisle to a mixed reaction from the audience)

Bella Braxton: The following match is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Oakland, California, weighing in at 230 pounds, “MOST UNIQUE” … LETHALLLL CONSEQUENCESSSSS!!!!

Kawajai: Lethal Consequences is back to prove he’s got a lot to provide this industry.

Nick: A lot of unfinished business. I got a funny feeling he’s gonna finish the job this time around.

(“Odee” by A Boogie hits as Chris Elite walks down the aisle to a chorus of cheers from the audience, the World Heavyweight Championship draped around his waist, handing it over to the timekeeper’s area and circling Lethal Consequences who doesn’t break eye contact with Elite’s person for a moment)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 210 pounds, “GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS”… HE IS THE WORLD! HEAVYWEIGHT! CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOONNN…. CHRIS ELITEEEE!!!!!!

Kawajai: Elite emerged from Pain for Pride still the World Heavyweight Champion, and tonight he’s on the prowl to add another trophy on his mantle as he aims to defeat the former Undisputed Hardcore Champion.

(“Still Unbroken” by Lynyrd Skynyrd hits as Rex McAllister walks down the ramp, making his way to ringside to be a spectator for the upcoming match after winning his number one contendership match for the World Title earlier in the night)

Kawajai: Rex is here!

Nick Angel: For what reason, though? To cause trouble? Clearly playing mind games with Chris Elite right now.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Kawajai: This match is underway as the new number one contender to the World Heayweight Championship, Rex McAllister, stands at ringside spectating the action! Lethal Consequences gestures for a lock-up and the champion Chris Elite is happy to oblige as he knots up with LC, but only for LC to quickly reverse the maneuver into a waist lock — but right afterward an elbow to the face of Lethal Consequences from Chris Elite! Elite draws some distance between himself and his opponent tonight, then proceeding to dart off the ropes and dash forward for a spinning wheel kick, but LC ducks under it and nobody’s home as Elite falls back-first on the canvas and flails around for a moment, clutching his lower back in pain! Consequences knows he has a window of opportunity to do some damage right here as he immediately wrenches in the neck of Chris Elite, applying a tight headlock to the champion, trying to cut off the flow of oxygen to the head of Elite!

Nick Angel: The fans begin clapping, attempting to rally Chris Elite to his feet, and Elite manages to get back to a vertical base, but with that headlock still tightly wrenched in by Lethal Consequences! Elite tries to shimmy his way off of Lethal Consequences and push him forward toward the ropes, but LC is simply too strong, too much of an overpowering force for the World Heavyweight Champion to immediately muster the energy to pull him off of him, and Lethal Consequences does Elite one better, now transitioning the headlock into a sleeper hold! Lethal Consequences is trying to put Chris Elite away early on by completely cutting off the flow of oxygen to his brain, and transitioning that deadly headlock to the foreboding, fearsome sleeper hold is exactly the way to do that! The crowd continues to try to rally the World Heavyweight Champion Chris Elite, but to no avail as Elite has fallen to one knee and he can’t get up! Lethal Consequences has a demented smirk on his face, almost as if he’s enjoying commuting Chris Elite on his way to incapacitation, as he flexes his strength by gripping that sleeper hold in tighter to render Elite a lifeless, listless shell of an existence!

Kawajai: And Chris Elite has now fallen down to both knees. Rex McAllister is on the outside, seemingly enjoying himself as Lethal Consequences tries to write the blueprint on how to stop the World Heavyweight Champion Chris Elite, and what an amazing architect he’s been thus far in the early goings of this match — perhaps the final goings if Elite can’t get up from this as the referee grabs his arm, pulling it all the way up and dropping it down for the count of one! An ear-to-ear grin forms on the face of Lethal Consequences as he mouths “I got this!” and signals for the referee to pull his arm up and drop it down for the count of two, to which the referee obliges! AND ELITE’S ARM DROPS! THAT’S TWO! One more time and Elite is proven unable to compete and LC is declared the winner in what would be a dominant, decisive, shocking victory! The referee lifts Chris Elite’s arm up, and my God, folks, I think that’s going to be it!

Nick Angel: BUT ELITE HOLDS HIS ARM IN THE AIR, A BEAR CLAW FORMATION FORMING ON THE HAND OF CHRIS ELITE, AS THE CROWD ERUPT IN CHEERS AND LETHAL CONSEQUENCES SHAKES HIS HEAD IN ABJECT DISBELIEF! I DON’T BELIEVE IT, KAWA — ELITE IS SOMEHOW MANAGING THE STRENGTH, WAVING HIS FINGER AROUND! ELITE IS GASSED UP AS HE VIOLENTLY, PASSIONATELY JUTS HIS FINGER BACK AND FORTH WITH THE REST OF HIS PALM BALLED UP IN A FOUR-FINGERED FIST! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES IS KICKING AND SCREAMING ON THE BACK OF ELITE, WITH THAT SLEEPER HOLD THAT ALMOST CAUSED ROME TO BURN AND ELITE’S EMPIRE TO CRUMBLE TO ITS PROVERBIAL KNEES STILL LOCKED IN — AND LETHAL CONSEQUENCES HOLDS ON FOR DEAR LIFE — BUT A SNAP TAKEOVER BY ELITE TO LETHAL CONSEQUENCES FINALLY MANAGES TO GET SEPARATION BETWEEN THESE TWO MEN AS CONSEQUENCES FALLS BACK-FIRST ON THE MAT!

Kawajai: Elite’s just mocking him with the finger gesture, as if to say “I only made you think you had me” before rising back up to his feet like a phoenix emerging from the ashes. Elite now with a stiff shoot kick to the back of Lethal Consequences as he was half-way up to his feet! A shriek of pain from Lethal Consequences as Rex looks on outside in disbelief himself, surprised at the unbelievable endurance and stamina of the champion, and now yanking him back to a vertical base by his arm! Lethal Consequences appears somewhat gassed, but Chris Elite appears to really be feeling the effects of that headlock followed up by a long sleeper hold, seeming quite winded himself, and now Elite with an irish whip sends Consequences bouncing off the ropes, trying to meet him in the middle of the ring with a knee to the gut, but Lethal Consequences sidesteps the attempted knee to the midsection and now tries to wrench the champion in and connect with a hip toss on Elite, but to no avail as Elite doesn’t land on his back, but on his feed! BUT LETHAL CONSEQUENCES SAYS TO HECK WITH IT AND IMMEDIATELY CHARGES ELITE WHILE THE CHAMPION WAS STILL CLINGING TO HIS OPPONENT, COMING AT HIM LIKE A BATTERING RAM AND KNOCKING HIS BLOCK OFF WITH A LEVELING CLOTHESLINE! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES HAS CHRIS ELITE COMPLETELY SUBDUED AND NOW HOOKS THE LEG OF THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION FOR THE COVER! AFTER ALL THE PUNISHMENT ELITE HAS TAKEN, THIS COULD BE IT!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOO…..

Nick Angel: BUT A KICKOUT BY CHRIS ELITE! THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION ISN’T GOING DOWN EASILY, AND IT CAUSES LETHAL CONSEQUENCES TO KIND OF LOSE HIS COMPOSURE A BIT, SHAKING THE ROPES IN FRUSTRATION AND POUNDING ON THE MAT WITH THE BACK OF HIS BOOT AS HE RISES TO HIS FEET! CONSEQUENCES WITH CLUBBING MUDHOLE STOMPS TO THE PECTORAL REGION OF CHRIS ELITE AS THE CHAMPION REMAINS GROUNDED, AND CONSEQUENCES WITH SOME FORCE MANAGES TO GET ELITE BACK TO HIS FEET! HE’S LOOKING HIM DEAD IN HIS GLAZED-OVER, LIFELESS EYES, TELLING HIM TO “STAY DOWN!” — BUT ELITE SPITS IN THE FACE OF CONSEQUENCES, AND LETHAL CONSEQUENCES IS IRATE AS HE WIPES THE SALIVA AWAY FROM HIS FACE, TRYING TO CONNECT A HEADBUTT TO CHRIS ELITE, BUT ONLY TO BE THROWN OVER THE ROPES — NO!!! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES HUNG ON TO THE ROPES FOR DEAR LIFE AS HE REMAINS SEATED ON THE APRON UNBEKNOWNST TO THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, AND ELITE TURNS AROUND AND IS MET BY A HEADBUTT TO THE MIDSECTION — BUT A KNEE! KNEE TO THE HEAD OF LETHAL CONSEQUENCES AS HE ATTEMPTS A HEADBUTT TO THE MIDSECTION OF ELITE THROUGH THE MIDDLE RING ROPE, AND THAT CONNECTED SMACK-DAB IN THE CRANIUM OF LETHAL CONSEQUENCES! CONSEQUENCES IS ON DREAM STREET RIGHT NOW AS HE LURCHES FORWARD INTO THE RING, AND NOW ELITE WRENCHES HIM IN, HOISTING HIM UP HIGH IN THE AIR AND POWERING HIM DOWN FOR A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB!

Kawajai: But rather than go for the cover, Elite darts toward the ropes! The crowd is giddy and excited as Elite takes to the air, on the top rope as his next challenger Rex McAllister looks on, and Elite stares in the eyes of Rex McAllister as he’s about to perform the maneuver, and he leaps! AND A FROG SPLASH FROM CHRIS ELITE TO THE PRONE, LIFELESS BODY OF LETHAL CONSEQUENCES CONNECTS! CHRIS ELITE EMPHATICALLY HOOKS THE LEG OF LETHAL CONSEQUENCES FOR THE COVER!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…. THRRRR—

Nick Angel: BUT A KICKOUT! THE CROWD WAS COUNTING ALONG WITH THE REFEREE, AND THEY’RE AS SHOCKED AS ELITE IS THAT CONSEQUENCES KICKED OUT! REX MCALLISTER IS LAUGHING AT CHRIS ELITE FROM THE OUTSIDE, JUST GRINNING, AND CHRIS ELITE LOOKS OVER AT HIM AND THE TWO ELITISTS BEGIN JAWING AT EACH OTHER! REX AND CHRIS ELITE ARE MOUTHING OFF TO ONE ANOTHER AS ELITE POINTS TO HIS WORLD TITLE IN THE TIMEKEEPER’S AREA, TELLING REX “THAT’S MINE!” “I’M THE CHAMP!” AS MCALLISTER SAYS “NOT FOR LONG!” BUT CAN ELITE REALLY AFFORD TO BE FORGETTING ABOUT LETHAL CONSEQUENCES? LC IS BATTLE-TESTED AND RIPE FOR THE OCCASION, DESPITE BEING LAID OUT ON THE MAT RIGHT NOW, AND CHRIS ELITE WALKS OVER TO LETHAL CONSEQUENCES GINGERLY, SEEMINGLY TAUNTING REX MCALLISTER IN A RATHER UNCHARACTERISTIC MOVE FOR THE CHASE-CUTTING CHAMPION — BUT LC OUTTA NOWHERE WITH A SMALL PACKAGE PIN!!!!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!…. TWOOOOOOO!!!!… THRRRR—

Kawajai: ELITE MANAGES TO KICK OUT IN THE NICK OF TIME! LC HAD HIM RIGHT THERE, BUT ELITE JUST BARELY MANAGES TO ESCAPE A HUMILIATING DEFEAT! A FLUB ON CHRIS ELITE’S PART ALMOST SAW LETHAL CONSEQUENCES AS THE VICTOR, AND ELITE IMMEDIATELY RESPONDS BY TAKING LETHAL CONSEQUENCES UP AND CONNECTING A QUICK SNAP SUPLEX! CHRIS ELITE ONCE AGAIN SETS HIS SIGHTS ON THE ROPES AS HE WALKS OVER TO THEM, AND HE MEANS BUSINESS THIS TIME!

Nick Angel: Look at Rex! Rex is mouthing off at Chris Elite, and Elite is too consumed by the number one contender to his title to give Lethal Consequences his complete, undivided attention, staring over at Rex McAllister and now mouthing “this one’s for you!”, but the delayed time is giving Lethal Consequences time to recover, and Chris Elite hasn’t even noticed as Lethal Consequences darts off and now sends Elite FLYING off the ropes, back-first onto the mat! Elite is writhing in agony on the canvas, and now Lethal Consequences takes him back to a vertical base by his arm and attempts to connect a short, quick clothesline, but nobody’s home as Elite ducks under the clothesline attempt of Consequences, darting off the ropes on the follow-through — but that’s exactly where Rex is, and instead of focuisng on LC, Elite throws one more verbal potshot in the direction of Rex! Elite turns around, hoping to find the subdued Lethal Consequences — ACID REIGN!!!! THAT DIAMOND CUTTER LETHAL CONSEQUENCES CALLS THE “ACID REIGN” CONNECTS, AND CHRIS ELITE IS COMPLETELY LAID OUT! ELITE WAS TOO DISTRACTED TRYING TO GET AT REX, AND A LATERAL PRESS PIN FROM CONSEQUENCES FOLLOWS UP THE DEVASTATING ACID REIGN! BALLGAME!!!!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!…. THRRRRR–

THREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Blackout” by Company Flow hits as the referee raises Lethal Consequences’ arm victoriously. Lethal Consequences looks all too proud of himself after notching a victory over the World Heavyweight Champion, a smile forming on his face as he rolls under the bottom rope and onto the outside, both arms held up the entire way. Rex McAllister looks on at the fallen Chris Elite with a smirk on his face)

Bella Brxton: The winner of this match by pinfall… LETHALLLL CONSEQUENCESSSSSSSSS!!!!!

Kawajai: Lethal Consequences has done it! Lethal Consequences has knocked off the World Heavyweight Champion! Could you imagine we’d be uttering that line a couple of months ago? It’s amazing how things change!

Nick Angel: You could give a little assist to Rex, you know.

Kawajai: As far as I’m concerned, Chris Elite wasn’t focused enough to avoid the distraction of Rex McAllister. Rex didn’t try to interfere with the match itself. It was Elite who fixed his eyes on Rex and allowed him to rent space in his head that ultimately spelled his undoing. This one is a clear-cut victory for Lethal Consequences, in my eyes.
