(A recap of Crossfire plays)
(Voltage intro video plays featuring the song “Machine Gun” by Chase & Status, and we open up to the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada 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.)
Kawajai: WELCOME TO SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE!!! Fresh off of what was an amazing overall weekend last week for EAW as we had not one but TWO huge events that saw Voltage shine in one of them! We are back to our regularly scheduled program! We have a lot in stored tonight, new champions across the board! New opportunities on the horizon! Territorial Invasion is coming up and we’ll be hearing about that soon, and so much more!
(“For The Love Of Money” by The O’Jays hits to huge boos as Andy Dominguez makes his way out to the ring accompanied by Jackson Blayde, he has a two piece suit on and some Jordan 1s as Jackson Blayde has on some jeans and a sports jacket over a t-shirt.)
Bella Braxton: Please welcome, making his way to the ring, the Chief Financial Officer of EAW and co-owner of The Enterprise, being accompanied by Jackson Blayde…….. ANDDDYYYYYYY DOMINGUEEEZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!
Kawajai: Here comes two thirds of The Enterprise, it is safe to say that these fellas are not in the best of spirits here tonight. Especially on the heels of what was a disappointing Crossfire for them as they saw their leader in Lethal Consequences fall to Devan Dubian. I can’t help but wonder what they have on their mind tonight.
Nick Angel: Well we’re about to find out buddy.
(“For The Love Of Money” dies down as Andy and Blayde stand in the middle of the ring with mics in hand waiting for the fans to settle before speaking.)
Andy: I’m not out here tonight for what you think I’m out here to do. I’m not out here to make excuses, The Enterprise doesn’t need to make excuses for anything. You know who should be coming up with a great excuse right about now though? Our Voltage Commissioner, Mr. Matthieu Daniels. I didn’t have a chance last week at the actual Crossfire show to reprimand him or reverse the decision because my priorities were elsewhere, but someone please tell me… WHAT THE HELL was he thinking by naming Daryl Kinkade and Charlie Marr the Co-National Elite Champions? How the hell does that even make sense?????
Blayde: I’ve been wondering the same thing all week.
Andy: So Daryl Kinkade makes the cover, Charlie Marr also drapes his arm over POP, and your decision is to say “fuck it, I’m too lazy to do my job and come to an actual conclusion so just give both of them the title and call it a day”. This is unprecedented levels of fuckery, foolery, and buffoonery. Never in my countless years in this business have I ever seen something as idiodic as that. EVER.
Blayde: You know Andy, if I were in that title match it wouldn’t have even been a debate as to who won the match.
Andy: I don’t doubt that at all Blayde. In the future I need to start making all of the booking decisions clearly.
Blayde: Yeah, it’d be great if a fucking idiot wasn’t the head booker on this show for once.
Andy: Speaking of the idiot, how about he come out now and explain his idiotic thought process behind doing such a thing. I’ll wait.
(As moments go by, “Waves” by Kanye West hits to a loud pop as Matt Daniels makes his way out with a smug look on his face doing his peep pose to the fans down the ramp. He enters the ring and stands across from Blayde and Andy.)
Matt: Evening fellas.
Blayde: eVeNiNg. You know why we called you out here so let’s get down to business.
Matt: Ha, the lackey has speaking privileges now that’s cute.
(Blayde is about to get in the face of Matt before Andy holds him back and calms him down.)
Andy: I see what this is. You’re feeling confident for whatever reason, you’re making irrational careless decisions and talking back to your superiors. Wreaks of a man who knows he’s in his last days with nothing to lose. At least you know.
Matt: No Andy, you got it confused. My decision was very rational and thought out. If you think about it, this isn’t even the first co-Champion situation in EAW history. Look back to Pain 4 Pride when former Team Starr members Devan Dubian and Chris Hessian both became co-holders of the same title. This is no different. The only reason I’m “talking back” is because I’m tired of your shit I’m just going to be honest. I come out here every week and bust my ass to put on the best show and I constantly have my patience tried and my authority undermined by you guys for no reason. I’ve tried to reason with you and come to a middle ground but all you wanna do is find people to bully and I’m done being your victim.
(Andy puts on a sad but at the same time sarcastic expression.)
Andy: D’awww, wittle Matt standing up to the big bullies over at The Enterprise? You’d make a great spokesperson for our “Don’t be a bully, be elite” initiative, however, you can miss US with that bullshit.
Matt: Look guys, it’s clear this little “partnership”, you know, the one I was bumrushed with and never agreed on… it’s simply not gonna work.
Blayde: I could’ve told you that the moment The Enterprise touched down on Voltage and you were rendered obsolete.
Andy: Nah Blayde, let’s give him a chance. I understand your frustrations Matt but we can still work this out, if you want your job that is. We aren’t a partnership either, we are the top of the food chain on Voltage, it ends with us. That means you report to us like you should have done before making that irrational decision at Crossfire regarding the National Elite Championship. But you’re gonna right that wrong right here right now. You have two options, name either ONE out of Charlie Marr or Daryl Kinkade as the SOLE National Elite Champion. Or you can vacate the championship in total and I’ll put together a match that will name a sole champion.
Matt: How about this… I’m not doing either one. I made my decision and I’m sticking with it.
Andy: Oh are you? We’ll see what you have to stick with when you have no job.
Matt: Well I’d rather be unemployed than to answer to a piece of shit like you.
(The crowd gives a loud reaction as a very annoyed Andy and Jackson now drop their mics and corner Matt into the turnbuckle as they begin ruffing him up, Jackson is choking him and lifting him up by his collar as they yell into his face.)
Blayde: YOU’RE NOT SO TOUGH NOW ARE YOU? YOU’RE GONNA LISTEN TO US AND YOU’RE GONNA DO WHAT THE HELL WE SAY OR MY FIST IS GOING UPSIDE YOUR NOGGIN.
Kawajai: Blayde has had enough and he tosses Matt across the ring!!!! Now him and Andy begin stomping him out as the defenseless commissioner is trying his darndest to guard himsel-
(“Shook Ones” by Mobb Deep hits to a huge pop as Scott Diamond comes running down the ramp to the surprise of Blayde and Andy)
Kawajai: IT’S SCOTT DIAMOND!!!!! SCOTT DIAMOND IS HERE AND HE’S LAYING WASTE TO ANDY AND JACKSON!!!!! A SUPLEX TO ANDY AS HE FLIES ACROSS THE RING!!!! JACKSON COMES RUNNING TOWARDS SCOTT WITH A FIST BUT HE DUCKS UNDER AND CATCHES HIM FOR A SUPLEX AS WELL!!!!!! HE LIFTS ANDY BACK UP, ANOTHER SUPLEX!!!!! HE LIFTS BLAYDE UP…. THE VORTEX!!!!! IT CONNECTS AS BLAYDE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING IN PAIN!!!! SCOTT DIAMOND HAS COME TO THE RESCUE OF HIS OLD MENTOR MATT DANIELS, THE MAN WHO THRUST HIM INTO STARDOM BACK IN 2011 AS A MEMBER OF MUTINY!!!!
(Scott Diamond lets out a roar as the fans react with loud cheers.)
Kawajai: Scott checks up on Matt as he helps him get back to his feet and they put their focus towards Andy who’s still recovering from those suplexes and slow to get up…… wait what’s this? MATT DANIELS MAKES HIS WAY OVER TO ANDY, AND HE PUTS HIM IN THE POSITION FOR…. THE UNPRETTIER!!!!! IT CONNECTS AS ANDY IS LAID OUT IN THE RING AND THESE FANS ARE GOING WILD!! SHADES OF OLD SCHOOL CAPTAIN CHARISMA!!!!!
(Scott lifts up Matt’s hand and they embrace with a huge as “Waves” picks back up.)
Nick Angel: WOW! What a way to open up the show! I don’t think ANYONE expected this but what a pleasant surprise. Could we be seeing a new alliance of sorts?
Kawajai: I don’t know Nick but holy cow! I don’t know if we can call this new found alliance Mutiny but it would surely make sense based on what this implies! What a moment!
(Scott and Matt stand tall in the middle of the ring looking at the scrambling Andy and Blayde as the camera fades to black)
( DING! DING! DING! )
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. And it is a triple threat match.
( 6:24 by Danger starts playing as James Ranger makes his way to the ring. )
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from London, England, weighing in at 243 pounds, “The Black Mamba”, JAMESSSS RANGEEEEEER!
Kawajai: James Ranger is back on Voltage for the first time in a few weeks, he looks to bounce back and get himself back on the winning side of things!
( ‘We Are’ by Hollywood Undead bumps through the speakers as Jason Ryan slowly makes his way to the ring. )
Bella Braxton: Introducing next, from Billings, Montana, weighing in at 245 pounds, JASOOOOON RYAAAAAAAAN!
Angel: Voltage’s newest addition makes his way out as he looks determined. What a scary fellow, I certainly wouldn’t wanna be caught in the middle of the ring with that guy!
( ‘God’s Plan’ by Drake blasts through the speakers as VIP comes out on the stage making his way to the arena as the crowd gives a mixed reaction to him. )
Bella Braxton: And last but not least, from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 280 pounds, VVVVVVV IIIIIIII PPPPPPP!
Kawajai: VIP lost against Xander Payne at Crossfire, but he put on an impressive performance nonetheless, this is a great way to bounce back from that loss if he wants to ever find himself with another championship shot!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Angel: The match has started as James Ranger makes the first step right away he goes after VIP, but VIP with a lariat taking Ranger down. Jason Ryan though with a flying forearm sending VIP right to the corner. As he punches the hell out of VIP but Ranger interrups the action attacking Ryan from behind and Ryan looks pissed. He grabs Ranger from the neck… CHOKESLAM. Ranger rolls on the side of the ring as VIP WITH A DISCUS PUNCH ON RYAN TAKING HIM DOWN. VIP GOES FOR THE COVER BUT RANGER BREAKS IT RIGHT AWAY. RANGER NOW STOMPING DOWN BOTH MEN, BUT RYAN CATCHES HIM BY THE FEET, TWISTS HIS LEG AND CAUSES HIM TO FALL ON THE MAT. VIP IS UP ON HIS FEET TOO AS BOTH MEN TEAM UP TO TAKE RANGER OUT. SPINEBUSTER FROM VIP AND IT’S FOLLOWED BY A FALLAWAY SLAM BY RYAN SENDING RANGER OUT OF THE RING. RYAN TURNS AROUND AND A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX BY VIP.
Kawajai: Jason gets on his feet, but goes back down as VIP leaves a mark on his face with a big boot planting him down. VIP HAS RYAN ON THE GERMAN SUPLEX POSITION… 0 TO 100! THE DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS. THERE IS THE COVER!
Ref: ONE! TWO!
Kawajai: But Ranger breaks the cover. He grabs VIP and connects with a DDT. Ryan is still down as Ranger climbs the top rope. ADVENT DOWN! NO, JASON RYAN MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AND RANGER LANDED HARD ON HIS FEET. RYAN WITH A SPEAR TO RANGER BREAKING HIM IN HALF. HE TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO VIP AS HE CONNECTS WITH A ROLLING CUTTER. JASON RYAN HAS THE CONTROL OF THIS MATCH AS HE GRABS RANGER AND LOCKS THE KIMURA LOCK IN! RANGER IS SUFFERING HERE AS RYAN HAS LOCKED THE KIMURA LOCK TIGHT. RANGER HAS NOWHERE TO GO. HE HAS TO EITHER TAP OR WAIT FOR VIP TO SAVE HIM. HE IS ALMOST TAPPING OUT! OUCH! VIP WITH A STOMP ON JASON RYAN’S FACE AND HE IS FORCED TO BREAK THE SUBMISSION. VIP NOW GRABS RYAN AND LOCKS THE ABDOMINAL STRETCH IN!
Angel: Jason Ryan getting a taste of his own medicine, but now Ranger can’t save him as he is out of the ring recovering. Ryan desperately trying to get out of the lock. AN ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD OF VIP. ANOTHER ONE. THE LAST ONE TO MAKE VIP BREAK THE SUBMISSION. VIP WITH A SHOULDER BLOCK ON RYAN WHICH BOUNCES BACK UP AS VIP CONNECTS WITH A DIVING BULLDOG. VIP GOES FOR THE COVER, BUT RYAN WITH A ROLLUP!
Ref: ONE! TWO!
Angel: Kickout! Ryan almost stole it here, but RANGER WITH A SUPERKICK TO RYAN! DEATHSTRIKE! THAT’S NOT ENOUGH AS HE CONNECTS WITH THE SNAKE EYES ON VIP! RANGER IS ON FIRE AS HE GOES FOR FINAL EXECUTION! NOPE, RYANS GOT OUT OF THE WAY. JASON RYAN WITH A KICK TO THE MID SECTION… LAST RITES! THE COVER!
Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREE-
Kawajai: VIP BREAKS THE COVER! HOW DID HE DO THAT? JASON RYAN TURNS AROUND… DISCUS PUNCH TO RYAN. LIGHTS OUT FOR HIM! COULD THIS BE IT?! VIP PICKS THE LIFELESS BODY OF JAMES RANGER UP! BACK TO MAT! THERE IS THE COVER!
Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( ‘God’s Plan’ picks back up as VIP has his arm raised in victory.)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. V…. I….. P!!!!!!!!!
Kawajai: VIP bounces back! He’s back to his winning ways and deservedly so, what a performance here tonight as VIP comes out with the victory. He couldn’t quite get it done at Crossfire but it looks like that loss only fueled him to go even harder! Congrats to the 6ix God!
(Voltage comes back on air as “Odee” by A Boogie hits to a huge pop as Chris Elite makes his way out with streets clothes on, some Mike Amiri jeans, Bordeaux Jordan 7s, and a shirt that says “Elitist of the Year” with a bunch of jewelry on. He makes his way up the ramp slapping hands with fans before entering the ring and getting a mic.)
Kawajai: It’s a weird sight to see him out here without the World Heavyweight Championship in his possession. For the first time since early 2018 Chris Elite is title-less, but nonetheless he still has a lot to say regarding last weeks loss and I can’t wait to hear it!
(Chris stands in the middle of the ring as the fans chant “Chris-Elite! Chris-Elite!”)
Chris: Thank you, thank you…….. I must say it feels hella weird to be out here right now without a championship on my shoulders but fuck it the show must go on am I right?
(The crowd reacts with cheers)
Chris: When I look back to this time last year I was nothing but a dude fighting scratching and clawing for my respect. I did everything in my power in order to solidify the name of Chris Elite and put a cap to what was an 8 year journey to finally be considered a top player in this business. I ceased every moment and opportunity that was given to me, I bullied the bullies and I kept my foot on the necks of every naysayer and doubter, and most importantly Mr. DEDEDE. I finessed it into eventually becoming the hottest thing in the whole company and my buzz was so undeniable that the top brass could no longer ignore the fact that I finally arrived. When I arrived I made sure that I would never look back and never go back to the position I was in beforehand and you better BELIEVE that I ain’t going NOWHERE. Voltage is still MY brand and I still run this shit!
Chris: Believe it or not, Chris Elite has respect for Rex. Not even just cuz he was the one to take the title from me but we go way back like the hairline on Diamond Cage. We competed against one another, we teamed with one another, so we were both very familiar with what we could do in that ring and that’s what made it that much better when we faced off for the biggest prize in the company. Another plus is the fact that unlike my other former partner, he didn’t have to pull no fuck-shit in order to send a statement. That’s why I fucks with Rex, he’s a clean cut “by the books” type dude and he’ll make a great placeholder champion before I get back on my bullshit and decide to get my rematch.
Chris: So what’s next for Chris? I got a couple things on my plate, for one you can f-
(“If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray hits to a huge mixed reaction as The Prince of Phenomenal makes his way out as he enters the ring to the annoyance of Chris Elite.)
POP: Hey Chris, you don’t look too happy to see me. I told you what was gonna happen when Crossfire wrapped up did I not?
Chris: …Fuck is this bozo talkin about?
POP: You know why I’m out here Chris, we got unfinished business and we gonna get this shit out the way. You’ve been a thorn in my side for the past month, my whole time going at it with MarrKade was polluted by your bullshit and in the end I lost my title, the ONLY title these people cared about because I held it, and it’s all your fault.
(The crowd boos)
Chris: Ight so boom first off, suck my dick. Second off, these people don’t seem to agree with that claim. Guess I’m not the only one who don’t wanna see you.
POP: Well you’re gonna have to see me because I ain’t going nowhere.
Chris: Fam don’t you got an Openweight qualifying match in tonight’s main event? Why you wilding breh channel that energy into something productive before I slap the shit outta you.
POP: I’d like to see you try.
Chris: Nah but forreal tho, I’d love to slap the shit outta you but I got other shit on the agenda before I get to doing that. So if you could take a rain check I’ll gladly get at you at a later time.
POP: What do you have to do outside of drown in your sorrows and reminisce on your flash in the pan ass title reign that you’ll never get a chance to re-live?
Chris: You know on a normal day that would’ve probably got under my skin but today’s a new day it’s August, the weather outside is beautiful, and I’m all about spreading positivity! :grinning:
POP: Enough of your petty bullshit Chris, we either set up a time and place to fight, or I’ll bring the fight to you right now.
Chris: Look b like I said, I’d love to body you and smack fire out you but I got some other shit to focus on in the meantime. So either you can take a raincheck OR I’ll have to initiate Plan G.
POP: Plan… G?
Chris: I thought you’d never ask.
(Chris digs into his pocket as he reaches and grabs a piece of paper out of it and unfolds it.)
Chris: THIS! This thing right here boi… you got no idea. Well you probably do but it’s been a while since I actually utilized it. You see before you came out here to disrupt me, I was going to pull this out and remind the people that I am still the owner of the Gawd Contract. So that means basically I do whatever the hell I want and it aint an Enterprise or Mutiny that can stop me ya dig? This is my ticket back to the position I need to be in and this is what will catapult me to redemption. What do you have to do with that? Well it’s simple, if you wanna keep fucking with me I can utilize this contract to make sure that you never get what you want and if you lay a hand on me not only will I sick the goons on your dumbass but I’ll also make your life a living hell as an employee of EAW. So we can do this the easy way, or we can do this the hard way. I’ll face you POP, just not when you want me to, and when we do I can guarantee we’ll tear the house down but until then you gonna need to find another angle.
(POP ponders for a bit before reluctantly speaking again)
POP: You know what, fuck it. Be a coward and hide behind that contract then. I’ll get what I want eventually, I’ll hold you to your word. Catch you eventually Chris.
(POP drops the mic and walks off as “If I Had A Heart” picks back up and Chris looks on from the ring.)
Kawajai: Can’t help but wonder what Chris is alluding to regarding the other business he has to tend to.
Nick Angel: It’s an excuse! Chris knows he isn’t ready for POP!
Kawajai: He just beat him a few weeks back though..
Nick Angel: So what!
Kawajai: Alright then. On another note up next we have a battle of two New Breed competitors! The New Breed Champion Xander Payne up against a NEO alumni making his main roster debut, Osamu Arcichida, next!
(Highlights of Xander Payne successfully retaining his New Breed Championship against VIP at Crossfire play)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: “The following match is for one fall. Introducing first..”
( “Eyes on Fire” by Zed’s Dead is the first theme song to hit the P.A. system. The lights dim slightly only for a yellow light to wash over the crowd. Osamu Arcichida makes his way onto the stage, greeted by a warm reaction from the crowd. The man heralded as ‘Oskaka’s Greatest’ marches down to the ring, focused completely.)
Bella Braxton: “…from Osaka, Japan – weighing in at Two Hundred and Thirty-Four pounds.. OSAMU ARCICHIDA!”
Kawajai: “Here we have Osamu Arcichida who’s spent time with NEO previously. Finally making his long-awaited EAW debut. He’s got quite a challenge, though.”
Nick Angel: “He certainly does. And here he is!..”
(Osamu had climbed into the ring just as the music switched from the softer, more mellow sounds of Zeds Dead to “It Follows” by Cane Hill. The crowd erupted into a massive chorus of boos as Xander Payne pushed through the curtain.”
Bella Braxton: “And his opponent … from Brampton, Ontario, Canada – weighing in at Two Hundred and Fifty-Five pounds … he is the [b]NEW BREED CHAMPIONNNN!!![/B]… XANDER PAYNE!”
Nick Angel: “The New Breed GOD!”
(Nick exclaimed as Xander entered the ring. Immediately, he handed the championship over and charged Osamu who wasn’t expecting it.)
Nick Angel: “IMMEDIATELY XANDER PAYNE RUSHES IN AND ATTACKS OSAMU! BACKING HIM INTO THE CORNER WITH A FLURRY OF RIGHT HANDS CONNECTING TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!”
Kawajai: “The champion is wasting no time working on Osamu. Backing him into the corner, Osamu is trying to cover up and block a few of those shots, but Xander now switching to knees.”
Nick Angel: “Knee lifts to Osamu’s stomach then OH! Suplexing him out of the corner! Dropping him right on his head, and going into the cover.”
Kawajai: “Shouting at the ref to come count.”
Kawajai: “Xander tried to get the quick win, but Osamu powered out just after one. It’s still too early.”
Nick Angel: “Xander’s pulled Osamu up to his feet and whipped him into the ropes. HUGE CLOTHESLINE!..”
Kawajai: “NO! Osamu ducks underneath Xander’s arm and hits the far ropes. Coming back… DROPKICK! Xander is wobbly, backing up to the ropes. Osamu’s back up to his feet and he clothesline’s Xander over the ropes with a big clothesline!”
Nick Angel: “Ouch! He hit the ground hard. GET UP XANDER!”
Kawajai: “Osamu’s climbed out of the ring and now he’s got his hands on Xander, pulling him up to his feet. Osamu looking to put Xander back into the ring. XANDER GRABS HIS TIGHTS AND PUSHES HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! NOW HE’S STANDING OVER THE TOP OF HIM, STOMPING AT HIS SHOULDER.”
Nick Angel: “YES THAT’S IT! THAT’S WHY HE’S THE NEW BREED GOD! .. XANDER PULLS HIM UP, SETS HIM UP AND POWERBOMB AGAINST THE STEEL POST..”
Kawajai: “NO! OSAMU PUSHED HIMSELF UP AND OFF OF XANDER’S SHOULDERS RIGHT BEFORE HE WAS RELEASED! Xander stops before he runs himself into the post and turns around.. RIGHT INTO ANOTHER DROPKICK FROM OSAMU.”
Nick Angel: “Osamu is fired up now. I don’t know how he’s doing this, but somehow he’s keeping pace with Xander. But now he’s making a mistake. He entered the ring and is letting Xander catch his breath and get back on his game plan. Big mistake!”
Kawajai: “I have to agree. Xander is intelligent and allowing him to collect his thoughts is dangerous.”
(Xander took his time before reentering the ring. Making sure the referee made Osamu gave him plenty of room. Xander rolled into the ring, only to be immediately covered up by Osamu. Osamu was bent down, grabbing at Xander’s neck and head to pull him up, but knowing the referee’s placement..)
Kawajai: “OH COME ON! Xander just thumbbed Osamu’s eye. Look at him backing up, holding his eye. And that grin from Xander while he stands up.”
Nick Angel: “Xander follows Osamu.. GERMAN SUPLEX! Rolling him over, still locked in.. ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX! HE’S GOING TO TRY FOR A THIRD.. RELEASING OVERHEAD!..”
Kawajai: “NO! OSAMU FLIPS BACK AND LANDS ON HIS FEET. XANDER CAN’T BELIEVE IT. XANDER MOVES FORWARD TO OSAMU AND GETS A KICK TO THE STOMACH. SWINGING NECKBREAKER!”
Nick Angel: “Osamu isn’t pinning him though. He pulls Xander back up – SNAPMARE DDT! Immediately followed by a BASEMENT DROPKICK! Holy! Look at the speed that Osamu is hitting this combination in.”
(After the basement dropkick, Osamu rolled Xander onto his back and slid into a cover.)
Nick Angel: “YES! SHOULDER UP.”
Kawajai: “Osamu stands Xander up and sends him into the corner following him in with a hard running knee to the face. Xander is dazed! Osamu is like a shark now, pulling him out and hitting a BIG Tiger Bomb!”
Nick Angel: “He’s too close to the ropes to pin though.”
Kawajai: “Good call. Osamu knows this too, that’s why he’s waiting for Xander to return to his feet.”
(Xander used the ropes to pull himself up to his feet, finally staggering around to face Osamu again.)
Kawajai: “Right hand! Left hand! Open hand slaps in rapid succession! High knee lift to the face right into a BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX! Jesus. Osamu unloading on Xander now. Staying down with him, covering him quickly.”
Nick Angel: “Xander kicks out at two! But look at that. He’s angry now. Osamu’s offense has just upset the New Breed GOD. You don’t want to upset a god. It won’t end well.”
Kawajai: “Up to his feet, Xander with a quick knee lift that stops Osamu’s momentum. Xander with a couple of stiff clubs to the back before pushing him back a step – SUPERKICK!”
Nick Angel: “Oh my god, I think the people in the last rows heard the impact of that kick. Osamu is completely out of it, too.”
Kawajai: “I’m not so sure about that. He’s beginning to come to, rolling up to his feet. Xander lifts him up – forearm, forearm, forearm! Three hard forearm strikes and then OH! GAMENGIRI! Osamu drops to a knee. He’s trying to shake off the effects of that kick.”
Nick Angel: “He’s not going to get the chance. Xander has picked him up. Crossing his legs.. Picking up up and [b] “PAYNEDRIVER”![/b] THAT’S IT! THAT’S IT! XANDER WITH THE COVER..”
Nick Angel: “WHAT?! How did he kick out of that!?”
Kawajai: “Xander is not happy at all. Swearing out loud at the referee, taking his eye off of the ball and letting Osamu catch his breath. And just like that, Osamu is back up to his feet. Xander turns around.. SPINNING PALM STRI—”
Nick Angel: “OSAMU DODGES IT?! WAIT. NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX BY OSAMU! HE ATTEMPTS A BRIDGE TO PIN, BUT IS TOO DRAINED TO ARCH PROPERLY.”
Kawajai: “Osamu instead pushes up to his feet, pulling Xander up with him. Osamu with another strong open hand strike before he turns and runs to the ropes. Coming back with speed…”
Nick Angel: “POP UP POWERBOMB! OH MY GOD!! XANDER JUST HIT A POP UP POWERBOMB ON OSAMU!”
Kawajai: “He’s staggering though. That might have been out of desperation, Nick. Normally he would go straight for the cover.”
(Xander staggered back momentarily before dropping to his knees and slowly covering Osamu.)
Kawajai: “THREE!!.. NO..!! HE KICKED OUT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND! THE REFEREE CALLS IT OFF AND XANDER IS FURIOUS!”
Nick Angel: “WHAT A BOZO! LEARN TO COUNT! THAT WAS CLEARLY THREE. NO ONE EVER KICKS OUT OF THE POP UP POWERBOMB!”
Kawajai: “It was the hesitation before pinning, Nick. He waited too long. And now he’s arguing with.. NO! GET YOUR HANDS OFF OF THE REFEREE, XANDER! THAT’S A SENIOR OFFICIAL..”
Nick Angel: “I don’t condone this normally, but he messed up. That should have been the three count..”
Kawajai: “NICK! LOOK! Osamu has moved closer. HE’S GRABBED XANDER’S LEG! OSAMU LOCK! THE ROLLING KNEE-BAR IS LOCKED IN TIGHT AND XANDER IS SCREAMING BLOODY MURDER. HE’S IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, THERE’S NO WHERE TO GO FOR THE NEW BREED CHAMPION! ….HE TAPS! HE TAPS!”
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: “Here is your winner. OSAMU ARCICHIDA!”
Kawajai: HE DID IT! Osamu defeats the New Breed Champion on his Voltage debut! What a first impression! I see a lot of potential in this young man if he keeps it up, the sky is the limit!
Nick Angel: Indeed partner, defeating Xander Payne is no easy feat especially as a fellow up and comer, and this was certainly no fluke! Congrats are in order for Osamu!
(Xander is seen pouting outside of the ring as Osamu has his arm raised, he looks on with a confident smirk as Xander scolds him from the outside.)
(Camera transitions backstage to Sofia Clarke standing by.)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen please welcome my guest at this time… the NEW World Heavyweight Champion (the crowd explodes)… REX MCALLISTER!!!
(Rex appears in the frame with the World Heavyweight Championship draped over his shoulder to loud cheers.)
Rex: Thanks for having me.
Sofia Clarke: Rex, it was announced early last week on EAW.com that you were named the captain of Team Voltage for Territorial Invasion. That means it’s in your hands to decide who will make up for the rest of the three-man team, have you made a decision yet?
Rex: I have, but before I get into that I’d just like to say….. Damn it feels good to be a TWO TIME World Champion here in EAW!
(The crowd cheers)
Rex: I would have never thought in my wildest dreams when I first started off here and couldn’t buy a win to save my life that I’d be where I am today but low and behold. I am your World Heavyweight Champion. I’d like to thank every fan who had my back and supported me throughout the way, when I lost at PFP and it seemed like all hope was lost you guys kept me pushing and it’s all paid off. Now it’s up to me to be the greatest champion I could possibly be, and I promise I’ll do everything in my power in order to do just that. I won’t let you guys down. With that being said, I’d like to also thank my opponent, the man who I won this championship from, Chris Elite. We obviously weren’t seeing eye to eye throughout the weeks leading to our bout but when the smoke cleared the respect was there, and I hope you know I meant that. You had an incredible reign and you have nothing to be ashamed of, hats off to you. I have a tough act to follow up but I’m ready for the task and I’m ready to take on any and every challenge that stands in my way.
Sofia Clarke: Great words from our World Heavyweight Champion! Now Rex, the fans are anticipating and have been on the edge of their seats for this next announcement..
Rex: Well I mean, after being named captain of the team that will be representing Voltage at Territorial Invasion is it not obvious? A three-man team led by myself? C’mon now, I wouldn’t choose any other two people in the world to stand by my side other than these two men. The future of this business and your new co-National Elite Champions…. DARYL KINKADE AND CHARLIE MARR!
(Charlie Marr and Daryl Kinkade appear in the frame to cheers sporting their own separate National Elite Championships)
Daryl: It’s an honor to fight alongside Rex and Charlie to represent the gold brand on a huge stage such as Territorial Invasion, especially as the champions of this brand. This business is crazy, I would have never imagined being where I’m at today and in the position to go even further but I’ll continue exceeding expectations and leading our brand to victory.
Charlie: That’s right. Your Co-National Elite Champs and your World Heavyweight Champion, I hope Showdown, Dynasty, and Empire bring their best because we’re ready for a war. It’s just a shame that even their best won’t be enough.
Sofia Clarke: Confident words from you guys and we’ll definitely need that attitude going into the match. Once again congrats guys.
(Rex and MarrKade all exchange handshakes as the camera transitions elsewhere.)
(The camera cuts back to the area, where “Today” by The Smashing Pumpkins blasts throughout as Jacob Moore walks out, wearing a traditional attire and a leather jacket with his logo on the back. He turns, a smile on his face, walking down to the ramp. “Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem then cuts “Today”, as Noah Reigner steps through the curtains and down, along with his tag team partner, and his Cash in the Vault briefcase in hand.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is a tag team match, scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, weighing in at a combined weight of 400 POOUNDSS!!!!……THEY ARE THE TEAM OF NOAAAHHH REIIIGNNERR, AND JAACCOOOOBB MOOOOOREEEEE!!!!!!
Angel: Up next on our match list is an uncanny one, but I know is still bound to be quite the show! Coming up first is the team of Mr. Cash in the Vault, Noah Reigner, and Jacob Moore! Noah is especially feeling good about himself after Crossfire where he managed to pull himself through fire and brimstone to retain his most prized possession against Lars Grier, a man who was hellbent on retrieving it. Moore wasn’t present during the SuperShow but tonight, expect him to bring his all!
(“The Charming Man” by The Smiths then plays as Charlie Marr steps out from the backstage area and onto the ramp, a smile on his face. The song then quickly transitions into “What A Shame” by Too Close To Touch, where Daryl Kinkade runs out, facing the crowd who greets him with a positive reaction. Both men sport their own separate National Elite Championships, as they share a look. They give each other a nod before heading down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPONENTS! Coming in at a combined weight of 440 POOOUNDSSS!!!!…….THEY ARE YOUR CO-EAW NAATIONAALL EELIITEE CHAAAMPPIOONNSS…….CHHAAAARLLIIEE MAAARRR, AND DAAAARYYLLL KIIINKKAAADDDEEE!!!!
Kawajai: Talk about two people who find themselves in a very, very strange situation! Both men are CO-EAW National Elite Champions after Crossfire in which both men pinned Prince of Phenomenal to the mat, and through Commissioner Matt Daniels, it was decided they would be co-existing champions! That’s something that is completely unheard of, but it’s exactly why Voltage is a show to watch! Unexpected, unpredictable, and an all-around show that every wrestling fan must see! Tonight they go up against Noah Reigner and Jacob Moore in a match that’s bound to be a hell of a show.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Angel: The bell has rung, this match has begun as it looks like it’ll be Jacob Moore and Charlie Marr starting for each of their teams, respectively! These two have actually crossed paths in the ring before, back when Marr was solo and they were vying for the National Elite Championship, and now they’re up against one another once more in a match-up that’s bound to be interesting. Moore and Marr circle each other, each man waiting for an opportunity to pounce on the other….they approach the center, BUT CHARLIE SKIPS RIGHT INTO THE MEAT WITH IT AS HE POPS OFF WITH A RIGHT HAND! Jacob is taken aback by the surprise hit, but replies back with a RIGHT OF HIS OWN! THEN A SHOOT KICK TO CHARLIE’S SHIN! He then grabs his stunned opponent, Irish whipping him into the ropes, coming back and connecting with a HUGE KNIFE-EDGED CHOP TO THE CHEST! He drops to the mat but quickly attempts to rise to his feet once more – ONLY TO MEET YET ANOTHER KNIFE-EDGED CHOP THAT KNOCKS FROM MOORE THAT KNOCKS HIM DOWN! Charlie grabs his chest in pain from the chop, Jacob now taking a look……he looks to take an advantage with this! He runs off against the ropes……THEN HE COMES BACK WITH A LEAPING KNEE DROP! NO! CHARLIE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND ONTO HIS FEET! Moore’s knee took the brunt of that as he grabs it in slight pain! AND OH! CHARLIE USING THAT OPPORTUNITY TO STRIKE WITH A BIG BOOT THAT TAKES MOORE’S HEAD NEARLY CLEAN OFF!
Kawajai: Jacob grabs his jaw in pain as Charlie manages to take him down with it, AND IMMEDIATELY CHARLIE DOES NOT RELENT AS HE ASSAULTS MOORE WITH RAPID-FIRE STOMPS TO HIS ABDOMEN! OVER AND OVER, JACOB’S TRYING TO FIGHT BACK BUT CHARLIE DOES NOT STOP! Charlie making good use of his feet as he just stomps out Moore, but Jacob is now starting to slowly rise to his feet despite the stomps……OH! CHARLIE WITH A HUGE HEADBUTT AND JACOB DROPS TO THE MAT ONCE MORE! JEEZUS! You could hear the bone colliding with bone there, and now I’m sure Moore is on spaghetti legs, completely disoriented from that headbutt! And Charlie uses that as he pushes his shoulders to the ground, hooking the leg for the pin! Will this be it?!
Angel: NOPE! KICK OUT BY MOORE! Too early to have a victor in this match, but I don’t think either man was expecting it to end there. Charlie up on his feet once more, as Jacob is slowly attempting to crawl back onto his feet……BUT HE KEEPS HIM GROUNDED WITH A RUNNING KNEE LIFT TO THE SIDE OF MOORE’S HEAD! DAMN! That was a vicious knee from Charlie, as he immediately follows it up with a grounded headlock onto Moore! He’s squeezing the life out of him, attempting to wear him down and right now Jacob’s too exhausted to get out of it! While it may not look much to the audience, headlocks are effective tools that most use to take away their opponent’s breath, as well as their coordination later on in the match! The crowd negatively reacting to this, booing Charlie as he keeps Jacob in the headlock, Noah Reigner on the outside stomping his feet and rallying his partner on…..but Jacob is trying to fight back! He’s on one knee, trying to pull Charlie’s arms away from his head! OH! A sharp elbow to the abdomen of Marr! Charlie still has that headlock tight though, and pulls Jacob in again once more! BUT JACOB STILL FIGHTING BACK WITH ANOTHER ELBOW! A second elbow but still not enough to stop the headlock, Charlie still has it locked in……so Jacob decides to use the ropes to his advantage! He moves forward, and pushes Marr against the ropes, making him bounce off! That’s enough for him to let go as Charlie runs off the rebounds against the ropes, coming back – STRAIGHT INTO A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT THAT DAZES HIM! THEN JACOB IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A SPINNING BACKFIST TO BOOT! THEN A RUNNING KNEE TO THE GUT! A swift combination of maneuvers by Jacob drops Charlie down onto both knees, as he must be in complete pain right now! Charlie’s on his knees and is disoriented……AND JACOB CONNECTS WITH A LOW ANGLE ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE SIDE OF HIS FACE THAT KNOCKS HIM DOWN ONTO THE MAT!
Kawajai: Charlie’s head falls onto the mat hard from that Roundhouse kick, as Jacob is now managing to regain control of the situation! And I think that Jacob knows just how to keep the pressure going, as he grabs Charlie’s head and lifts him off the mat, dragging him to his corner…..AND HE TAGS NOAH REIGNER IN! Jacob tags in Noah, and both men are now in the ring, grabbing the arm of Charlie…..AND PLANTING HIM DOWN WITH A DOUBLE BACKBREAKER! NICE TEAMWORK FROM THE TWO MEN! Noah gives Jacob a nod as he turns his focus completely on his opponent right now, looking to keep him away from his tag team partner long enough so that they can obtain the victory easily! Charlie grabbing his back in pain from the backbreakers dealt on him, but he won’t be allowed any more breathing room as Noah walks towards him, seeing Charlie attempting to sit up – BUT IS THEN TAKEN DOWN WITH A SLIDING FOREARM SMASH STRAIGHT INTO HIS JAW! DAMN! That was a vicious forearm from Reigner that planted Charlie back down onto the mat! Charlie needs to find some way to get out of the predicament he’s in! He needs to find a way to tag in his partner if he wants to escape this! But Noah isn’t it giving him any chance, lifting Marr back onto a vertical base….LIFTING HIM UP HIGH IN THE AIR! SUPLEX LIFT DROPPED INTO A KNEE! NO! CHARLIE PLANTS HIS HANDS ONTO NOAH’S KNEE, PREVENTING HIS FACE FROM BEING HIT! Noah is taken by surprise, and Charlie FIRES WITH A LEAPING KNEE STRIKE TO NOAH’S JAW THAT SENDS HIM SEVERAL STEPS BACKWARDS! Charlie starting to gain his fire again, running off the ropes, THEN COMING BACK WITH A DROPKICK THAT SENDS NOAH TUMBLING OVER THE ROPES!
Angel: Noah on the outside, grabbing onto the apron, trying to use it as leverage to stand back onto his feet….BUT CHARLIE FOLLOWS AFTER HIM! He steps out onto the ringside area – BUT NOAH GRABS HIM BEFORE HE CAN DO ANYTHING AND SLAMS HIS SPINE INTO THE BARRICADE! Marr has the wind knocked out of his sails with that as Noah grabs him once more….THEN SLAMS HIS FACE ONTO THE APRON! His face just meshed with the hardest part of the mat, he probably can’t tell where he is right now and Noah is going to use that to his advantage, walking towards his opponent, AND CONNECTING WITH STIFF FOREARM SHOTS TO HIS FACE! Rapid-fire forearms and elbows by Noah Reigner, trying to catch Charlie off-balance, but Charlie isn’t stopping his drive, he’s standing firm even against these shots! AND CHARLIE REPLIES WITH A FOREARM OF HIS OWN THAT KNOCKS REIGNER INTO THE STEEL POLE! Daryl Kinkade, his tag partner is on the apron cheering his partner on to fight, as Charlie moves Noah back into the ring! He slides back in, running off to use the ropes for momentum – PICKING UP NOAH REIGNER BY HIS LEGS! THE HEADMASTER RITUAL! The Headmaster Ritual Spinebuster connects, absolutely busting the spine of Noah as he bends his back in pain, but that comeback left Charlie severely vulnerable as both men are on the mat attempting to recover!
Kawajai: Charlie is attempting to crawl into his tag partner’s corner, but so is Noah! WHO WILL MAKE IT THERE FIRST?! Charlie on his knees, Noah is using the ropes to try and pull himself up…….AND CHARLIE MAKES A LEAP FOR IT! CHARLIE TAGS IN DARYL KINKADE, AND NOW HE IS LEGALLY IN THE MATCH! HE RUNS FOR NOAH WHO’S TRYING TO REACH JACOB, GRABBING HIM FROM BEHIND! SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX BY KINKADE DROPPING REIGNER ONTO HIS NECK! JESUS! A BRUTAL DRAGON SUPLEX STOPPING ANYTHING NOAH HAD GOING FOR HIM AS DARYL STANDS BACK UP……AND HE RUNS FOR A RUNNING, STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS ONTO THE DOWNED REIGENER! HOT DAMN! TWO BIG MOVES FROM DARYL KINKADE TAKING NOAH OUT OF COMMISSION AND GAINING SOME MUCH NEEDED MOMENTUM! Daryl has energy flowing through him, clearly he is more than ready to end this! Noah trying to escape but Daryl is stopping him, keeping him away from Moore as he tries to reach his hand out! NOAH RUNS FOR A SHOOT KICK! IT CONNECTS, BUT DARYL DOESN’T FALL TO THE MAT! His chest is in pain, as Noah grabs him by the arm, Irish whipping him into the opposite corner – BUT DARYL USES THE MOMENTUM TO SCALE THE TURNBUCKLES! HE FLIES BACK! OH MY GOD! MOONSAULT INTO A REVERSE DDT! WOW! JUST WOW! WHAT AN ATHLETIC MANEUVER FROM DARYL KINKADE SLAMMING THE BACK OF REIGNER’S HEAD ONTO THE MAT WITH A SLAM! Daryl is pulling out all of the stops tonight, he’s not holding back and you can sense that both him and the crowd are loving it!
Angel: Daryl wants to end this quickly, he wants to wrap this up as he places his feet onto the thighs of Noah…..AND THEN GRBAS HIS ARMS! WHAT’S THIS? OH! WORKING OUT THE KINKS! OH MY GOD! WORKING OUT THE KINKS IS OUT, THE SURFBOARD DRAGON SLEEPER LIFTING REIGNER UP IN THE AIR AS HE IS IN COMPLETE PAIN! A tricky yet effective maneuver, as he is absolutely BENDING THE NECK OF NOAH! HE HAS TO TAP! HE’S GOT TO OR ELSE KINKADE WILL SNAP HIS DAMN NECK OFF! BUT OHH! JACOB MOORE! HE RUSHES IN TO BREAK THE SUBMISSION, SAVING HIS TAG PARTNER! WOW! Jacob barely making the save there, stopping Daryl but I think some permanent damage may have been done! It doesn’t matter, Moore isn’t it even the legal man in this match but he saved it, AND I THINK THAT’S A CALLSIGN FOR CHARLIE WHO RUSHES IN! HE DROPS JACOB WITH A RUNNING KNEE SMASH TO HIS JAW! OH BOY! Chaos in the ring as all four men duke it out, Daryl trying to grab Noah, and Charlie assaulting Jacob! BUT JACOB FIGHTS BACK WITH A RIGHT HAND FROM HIS GROUNDED POSITION! It knocks him several steps back, allowing ample time for him to get back up…..AND HE RUSHES TO THE ROPES! MAGNIFICENT MILE KICK! THE SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK CONNECTING AGAINST THE SIDE OF CHARLIE’S FACE! A surprisingly athletic move from the big man, taking Marr down, as Daryl sees REIGNER’S partner cleaning house, AND CHARGES! MOORE SIDESTEPS! HE GRABS DARYL FROM BEHIND! GERMAN SUPLEX! A GERMAN SUPLEX BY JACOB ONTO DARYL, BUT HE DOESN’T LET GO! HE’S GONNA GO FOR THE TRIALTY! He gets back onto his feet again, lifting Kinkade along with him…..GOING FOR THE DRAGON SUPLEX – DARYL FLIPS! HE FLIPS AND LANDS ON HIS FEET PERFECTLY! WOW! Moore has no idea what has happened, as he scrambles to get up…..ONLY TO MEET THE DKO! THE DKO! MY GOD, THE SPRINGBOARD CUTTER DRIVING THE SKULL OF JACOB DOWN TO THE MAT!
Kawajai: Daryl is exhausted from him pulling out all of these moves tonight, but he is determined to win despite everything! Charlie is dazed but not down, and Daryl sees this! He TAGS in his partner, as both men look towards Noah Reigner who is barely able to stand on his feet! THEY’RE LOOKING TO END HIM TONIGHT! DARYL CATCHES REIGNER, GRABBING HIS ARMS FROM BEHIND! HE SIGNALS TO CHARLIE TO END THIS FIGHT! CHARLIE’S GETTING READY, HIS ENERGY IS FLOWING…..HE CHARGES! CHARING CROSS! THE DISCUS LARIAT! OH MY GOD WAIT! NOAH DUCKS THE DISCUS LARIAT AND IT CONNECTS ON DARYL! OH MY! CHARLIE JUST HIT HIS FINISHER ON HIS OWN TAG TEAM PARTNER, AND HE IS COMPLETELY DUMBFOUNDED! HIS JAW IS ON THE FLOOR, COMPLETELY SURPRISED, AND I DON’T THINK ANY OF US EXPECTED IT EITHER! Charlie bends a knee, attempting to check on his fallen partner – CROSSFACE CHICKENWING! CHICKENWING! CHICKENWING BY NOAH REIGNER FROM BEHIND, GRABBING AGAINST THE FACE OF MARR! HE DRAGS HIM DOWN! LIGHTING QUICK SUBMISSION BY NOAH AND CHARLIE! CHARLIE TAPS ALMOST IMMEDIATELY! HOLY SHIT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem blasts throughout the arena as Noah Reigner lets go of Charlie who is writhing in pain on the mat. Daryl is on the outside, only just now starting to recover, as Jacob looks at the ring with an astonished look on his face.)
Bella Braxton: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS…….. JAACOOBB MOOOOREE, ANNND NOOOAAAHHH REIIIIGGNNEEERRR!!!!!
Angel: I DON’T BELIEVE IT! Noah Reigner and Jacob Moore just defeated our co-EAW National Elite Champions in what was an amazing tag match that took everyone off-guard! Especially with an ending like that, you’ve got to be thinking about how the two of them will react to it!
Kawajai: I don’t know, Nick! It was an accident but they may take it differently considering the circumstances and how they didn’t win this fight, but nonetheless congratulations on Jacob Moore and Noah Reigner for pulling out a surprise victory tonight that shows that they are some of the best talent that Voltage has to offer! This fight went back and forth like a tug of war, and while the champs showed that they are a force to be reckoned with, missteps caused them to lose coordination and fail! It could’ve gone either way, but now Noah and Moore stand tall!
(Camera fades to a undisclosed area where the scene is dark and gloomy, Heras, the manager of Kronos steps into the frame as she begins talking into the camera)
Heras: Last week at Crossfire, Kronos rekindled a flame that had long been blown out. Kronos did the impossible and made a man who had lost everything, regain it all in just one night. He may have lost the match, but he made a statement and he won something much more important…. the attention of the Voltage locker room. Crossfire was just the start of a very long road to domination and success for a man who has nothing to lose and everything to gain. He is a man ready to redeem himself and start his path of destruction… and next week, somebody will be an unlucky victim. Be ready.
(Heras intensely stares at the camera as it fades to black and transitions elsewhere.)
(Woogieman is seen walking down the hall with his Big Bhris Bhampionship as his appearance solicits a huge pop from the fans. He stops in his tracks as he runs into the Voltage commissioner Matt Daniels)
Woogieman: Just the man I am looking for.
Matt Daniels: To what do I owe the pleasure goat?
Woogieman: Let’s cut the small talk, I need some compe- excuse me.. bompetition… and I need it now. These open challenges aren’t giving me what I’m looking for.
Matt Daniels: I agree Woogie. You deserve much more than what you’ve been getting and I will do everything in my power to make sure you aren’t short changed any longer! Gotta keep my ch- my bhamp happy!
Woogieman: That’s right, I expect to hear from you soon.
Matt Daniels: You got my word sir.
(Woogie nods to Matt and continues walking as the camera transitions back to the ring.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
( “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by Foo Fighters blasts through the speaker as Devan Dubian steps onto the stage, scanning the crowd, who excitedly erupted once his theme song )
Bella Braxton: Introducing first! From Leicester, England, United Kingdom, weighing in at 230 pounds……….. DEVANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN DUBBBBBBIANNNNN!!!
Nick Angel: What a match Devan Dubian had at Crossfire, defeating the Lethal Consequences, who has an illustrious backstory and hall of fame induction under his track record. The win at Crossfire might have put his career trajectory up a notch substantially for beating someone with the legacy of Lethal Consequences.
Kawajai: Tonight, he faces Jackson Blayde, a man who was strangely not at the corner of Lethal Consequences at Crossfire, which might have been a disadvantage of LC as he could’ve used the support of Blayde. Dubian was determined to walk into Brooklyn and prove that Lethal Consequences can’t beat him without the help of the Enterprise.
( As Devan Dubian walks over to his designated corner, ‘Still Hungry’ by Adelitas Way blares throughout the arena, prompting for Jackson Blayde to jerk the curtain, walk onto the ramp along with his tag team partner Lethal Consequences )
Nick Angel: Jackson Blayde has recently introduced his extensive wrestling styles to the land of Elite after returning to the big leagues. Blayde will come off as cocky at the start, but he knows that when he says something, he will deliver on that promise.
Kawajai: He’s got the physique, the talent, the looks, he’s got everything and if he follows the footsteps of the legendary Lethal Consequences, he will be one of the greatest without a doubt.
(DING! DING! DING! )
Kawajai: The match is underway as Blayde immediately rolls out of the ring, walking over to Lethal Consequences, being whispered something into his ear. Devan rolls out of the opposite side of the ring, charging at Blayde from the behind! BLAYDE SIDESTEPS DUBIAN, MAKING DUBIAN COLLIDE WITH LC!!!!!
Nick Angel: Blayde comes from the shadows, grabbing Devan from the tights and relentlessly throwing him into the steel steps!! Devan going shoulder first into the steel steps, applying damage that Blayde could use as an advantage in this match! Blayde pulls him up, throwing him back into the steel steps once again!
Kawajai: Blayde clearly looking to put significant damage on the shoulder of Devan while he rolls him into the ring, locking in a fujiwara armbar on Dubian! Dubian rolls himself out of it, going for a roll-up pin on Blayde!! But before the referee gets the count, he rolls out of the pin, stepping back and charging into the arm of Dubian with a dropkick!
Nick Angel: Blayde obviously must’ve gotten this strategy from the legend himself Lethal Consequences. The old school technique where you repeatedly target a body part and damaging it! Blayde grabs Dubian’s arm, applying a hammerlock onto him! Blayde forcing his hand upwards towards the neck, applying pressure to the shoulder joint, which has already been targeted previously in the match.
Kawajai: Jackson has it sinked in, applying more and more pressure! Devan needs to get out of this hold immediately! Dubian takes Jackson down from over his head as they both get up on their feet at the same time! DUBIAN SPINS FOR THE DISCUS FOREARM!!! BUT JACKSON JUMPS UP WITH HIS KNEES AND CONNECTS WITH AN ARM-TARGETED STABBER! THE ARM VERSION OF A BACKSTABBER CONNECTS AS DUBIAN HOLDS HIS ARM IN PAIN!! JACKSON HOOKS HIS LEG FOR THE PIN!!!
Kawajai: Kickout!!! You know, if Jackson keeps targeting his arm, he might not be able to kick out which could be in favour of Jackson’s chances of toppling Dubian! Jackson picks Dubian up, irish whipping him into the corner. Dubian reverses the irish whip as Jackson goes into the corner instead! JACKSON BOUNCES OFF THE TURNBUCKLES AND CONNECTS WITH A SPINNING BACK ELBOW!!!! DUBIAN GOES INTO THE ROPES, REBOUNDING OFF AND TURNING JACKSON INSIDE OUT WITH A PENDULUM LARIAT!!!
Nick Angel: Both men taking each other out as they slowly rise up to the feet, using the ropes as a leverage. They get up and charge at each other, exchanging numerous right fists! JACKSON GRABS DUBIAN DOWN, SLAMMING HIS BACK INTO HIS KNEE WITH A STO BACKBREAKER!!! HE BRINGS HIM BACK IN FOR A NECKBREAKER BUT DUBIAN REVERSES IT, SPINNING JACKSON AROUND AND PlANTING HIM WITH A SNAP DDT!!!
Kawajai: Both men keep answering each others’ moves as Dubian steps back, running the ropes, jumping up and slamming his knee into the temple of Jackson with a leaping knee drop! He then rolls into the mat, getting on his feet signalling for the end as he is possibly going for the Bleeding Edge!
Nick Angel: Jackson has no idea where he is, walking backwards as DUBIAN COMES FROM THE BEHIND!!!! BLEEDING EDGE!!! NO!!! JACKSON DROPS DOWN PUSHING DUBIAN SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!!!!! HE IMMEDIATELY GRABS HIM FROM THE BEHIND FOR THE ROLL UP!!
Kawajai: DUBian GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!!!! Jackson immediately grabs his arm, LOCKING IN A BRIDGING FUJIWARA ARMBAR!!!! BUT DUBIAN QUICKLY RELEASES THE HOLD, GRABBING JACKSON AND PINNING HIM INTO A MAT!!!!
Kawajai: BOTH MEN QUICKLY RISE UP TO THE FEET BUT JACKSON STRIKES FIRST WITH A KINSHASA KNEE STRIKE!!! NO!!!!! DUBIAN DUCKS IT, SWEEPING FROM BELOW AND SLAMMING HIM INTO THE GROUND WITH A WHEELBARROW SUPLEX!!!!! Instead of going for a cover to end the match, he picks him up, hooking him up for the double underhook piledriver! JACKSON SPINS HIM AROUND, PUTTING HIS HEAD IN BETWEEN HIS LEGS AND HOOKING HIM UP FOR HIS SIGNATURE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER!! BUT DUBIAN PUSHES HIM INTO THE ROPES, REBOUNDING OFF IT AND BEING MET WITH A VICIOUS RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!!! DUBIAN JUST TOOK HIS HEAD OFF WITH THAT EUROPEAN UPPERCUT AS HE PICKS HIM UP!!! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK PILEDRIVER!!! NO!!!! JACKSON JUMPS OUT OF THE HOLD!!! CHARGING RIGHT INTO DEVAN WITH THE BLAYDE RUNNER!!! THE KINSHASA KNEE STRIKE CONNECTS!!! COVER!!!
Nick Angel: NO!!!!! DEVAN KICKS OUT!!!!!!! JACKSON IS LIVID, SLAMMING HIS HAND ONTO THE MAT AS DEVAN JUST GOT HIS SHOULDER UP AFTER THE DEVASTATING BLAYDE RUNNER!!!!! Dubian slowly rolls out of the ring and onto the apron while Jackson argues with the referee, yelling at him that it was “3”. Blayde steps between the ropes and onto the apron, grabbing Dubian by his head!! DUBIAN LEANS DOWN, PICKING HIM UP FOR A OVER THE SHOULDER BACK-TO-BACK PILEDRIVER!!!! LC YELLS AT DUBIAN, DISTRACTING HIM AS BLAYDE GETS OUT OF THE HOLD, GRABBING HIS HEAD!!! FRACTURE DDT ONTO THE APRON!!!!!! LIFTING DDT ONTO THE APRON!!!!
Kawajai: Blayde rolls him into the ring, crawling over to the opposite corner of the ring! Hyping himself up as he signals for the end, yelling at Dubian to get up!!!! HE CHARGES……. …. ……… BLEEDING EDGE OUT OF NOWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE KINSHASA KNEE STRIKE COUNTERED INTO A BLEEDING EDGE!!! COVER!!!
( “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by Foo Fighters hits as Devan Dubian drops onto the mat like a sack of potatoes as he raises his arm while laying down )
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner….. DEVANNNNNNNNNNNNN DUUUUUUBIIIIIIIIANNNNNNNNNNN
Kawajai: WHAT A MATCH!!! BOTH MEN DID THEIR HOMEWORK AND HAD ANSWERS FOR EACH MOVE THAT THEY PURSUED AGAINST EACH OTHER!!!!
Nick Angel: Yes indeed! Both men gave it their all tonight, showing their true colours and that is pure competition in their hearts. Hats off to both men but Devan Dubian walked out of this battle as the winner.
(LC is seen gathering Jackson outside of the ring helping him get to his feet as he is seen telling him something that causes the brief disappointment to turn into a smirk, they both look back at Dub smiling and immediately run to the back leaving Dub to look on confused as the camera fades to black.)
(The camera cuts back to the ring as we see Bella Braxton standing in the center for the final time tonight.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall..
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton:..and is your MAIN EVENT of the evening! The winner of this match will receive an Openweight Champioship match at Territorial Invasion!
(We then cut to an aerial shot of the fans in the arena clapping and cheering before “4th Dimension” by Kids See Ghosts begins to blast throughout the venue, signalling the entrance of Lars Grier who is met with a reception of boo’s. Lars steps out onto the stage a few seconds later and makes his way down the ramp unbothered.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first..from Cincinnati, Ohio, weighing in at two hundred and sixty five pounds..“THE CROOKED MAN”, LARSSS GRIERRRRRRR!
Nick Angel: Now here’s a man who is looking to redeem himself! He had a lot of momentum going into Crossfire but unfortunately came up short against Noah Reigner.
Kawajai: And what a battle that was! I don’t think Lars has anything to be ashamed of but of course, the focus is always on gold and the winner of this contest tonight gets a shot at just that: Andrea Valentine’s Openweight Championship!
Nick Angel: That’s right, Kawa, the stakes are high in our main event here tonight. Lars will be facing off against two other men looking to earn that title shot as well in Prince of Phenomenal and Scott Diamond.
(Lars enters the ring and begins to walk up to one of the corner turnbuckles, but this is only a tease as he slowly backs up to the opposite corner and mentally readies himself. “4th Dimension” fades out and “If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray quickly takes its place and the camera pans back to the stage. The Prince of Phenomenal bursts through the curtain and does his signature pose atop the ramp to a mixed reaction but mostly cheers.
Bella Braxton: And his opponent..from South Beach, Florida, weighing in at two hundred and twenty pounds..PRINCE! OF! PHENOMENALLLLL!
(POP ignores the fans reaching for him as he walks down the ramp, 100% focused on the match ahead and locking eyes with Lars Grier.)
Nick Angel: Well, someone doesn’t seem to be having the best night..
Kawajai: Of course not, Angel, POP just lost his championship at Crossfire! But this just means he is even more determined to win this bout. He has to!
Nick Angel: In a way, so does Lars Grier, don’t you think? I think he needs it more, actually.
Kawajai: Lars has been unreliable and on a notorious streak of losses in big matches. He’s been given chance after chance..I don’t know, Angel, if he pulls this off, I’ll be surprised.
(POP makes his way through the ring ropes and poses in the middle of the squared circle as the fans cheer louder. He then begins to take off his entrance gear as he backs into the corner across from Lars, who smirks at him. POP starts to talk to Grier but ultimately drops it. Finally, “Shook Ones” by Mobb Deep picks up as we await the arrival of Scott Diamond.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponent..from Long Island, New York and weighing in tonight at two hundred and eighty pounds..accompanied by Albert Hitchman, HE IS THE “PERFECT STORM”, SCOTT DIAMOOOOONDDD!
(A moment passes by as Diamond is nowhere to be seen.)
Kawajai: Where’s Diamond?
(The camera then suddenly cuts to the backstage area – the guerilla position, specifically – where we see Scott Diamond being stomped on by two hooded figures. Albert Hitchman is also seen in the background already laid out.)
Nick Angel: WHAT IN THE HELL? WHAT IS THIS?
Kawajai: CAN WE GO ONE WEEK WITHOUT THIS ATTACK FROM BEHIND FOOLERY? SCOTT DIAMOND IS BEING PUMMELLED BY THESE GUYS! WHERE’S SECURITY?!
(Scott tries to fight back but it’s no use. Then, the two figures reveal themselves by pulling back their hoods.)
Nick Angel: OF COURSE! IT’S LETHAL CONSEQUENCES AND JACKSON BLAYDE! THE ENTERPRISE!
Kawajai: DESPICABLE! BLAYDE PICKING UP SCOTT NOW AS LC LOOKS ON LAUGHING! RIGHT INTO THE MONITOR! JACKSON BLAYDE HAS JUST THROWN SCOTT DIAMOND HEADFIRST INTO THE TV MONITOR! GLASS IS EVERYWHERE!
Nick Angel: I THINK SCOTT IS BLEEDING! HE’S DEFINITELY UNCONSCIOUS NOW! SECURITY!
(An abundance of officials and security rush the scene as Blayde and LC quickly flee. They start to tend to Diamond who has blood dripping down his face and a banged up Hitchman.)
Nick Angel: Obviously Diamond cannot compete in this match right now. What’re we doing?
(The camera cuts back to the ring where a confused Lars and POP look on. POP gestures towards the referee, asking if the match is still on. The referee nods.)
Kawajai: Looks like we’re still getting a fight! A fair one at that..
(The ref then signals for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Nick Angel: It’ll just be Grier vs Phenomenal tonight! Let’s go!
Kawajai: The bell rings and we are underway..POP comes charging right out of the gate at Lars but Lars quickly grabs POP and turns it into a headlock. POP elbowing Lars in his side now to loosen the Crooked Man’s grip! He attempts this for a few more seconds..POP now shoves Lars towards the ropes as Lars rebounds..POP LEAPS OVER LARS, LARS REBOUNDS AGAIN..STANDING DROPKICK TO LARS GRIER!
Nick Angel: AND LARS GOES DOWN HARD BUT QUICKLY GETS BACK TO HIS FEET ALMOST UNSHAKEN..Lars catches POP with a stiff right hand to the jaw which leaves POP dazed, Lars grabs POP by the hair and sets him up for a..VERTICAL SUPLEX! This is an evenly matched bout so far. Definitely interesting to see the contrasting styles between these two here tonight.
Kawajai: POP quickly crawls over to the ropes to try to get himself balanced again but Lars is not letting up! Lars shoves POP into the corner and steps up onto the second rope and lets the punches rain down on the former National Elite champion!
Crowd: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX!
Nick Angel: POP FIGHTING BACK NOW! He blocks another punch from Grier and hits him with one of his own. POP REACHES UNDER LARS.. IS HE GOING FOR A POWERBOMB RIGHT NOW? LARS GRIER IS ALMOST THREE HUNDRED POUNDS, KAWA! LARS WAS ALREADY ELEVATED AND IN PERFECT POSITION FOR POP TO GRAB HIM! HE’S GOT HIM! POP LIFTS LARS FROM THE ROPES AND BEGINS TO WALK FORWARD! SIT-OUT POWERBOMB FROM THE PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL! HE’S GOING FOR THE PIN!
Referee: ONE! TWO!
Kawajai: KICKOUT! I think POP knew that wouldn’t finish the big man but it’s worth a try anyway. POP shoves Grier’s legs off of him and gets back to a vertical base. He takes a second to regroup as the crowd cheers! They’re already loving this! A highly competitive match between two of Voltage’s best! POP now stomping on the body and limbs of Lars Grier viciously! The arm! The ribs! The head! Pain shooting throughout! POP sitting up Lars now and digging his knee into the back, pulling both arms back at the same time! Lars wincing in pain right now!
Nick Angel: POP has been in the ring with the best of them and from all different backgrounds too! He knows he can’t let Lars get the upperhand as he obviously has a height and weight advantage here. Lars now trying to fight out of it! Lars trying to turn this over in his favor! AND HERE’S THAT STRENGTH I’M TALKING ABOUT! LARS MANAGES TO PULL PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL RIGHT OVER HIS HEAD! WHAT A REVERSAL! POP GOES FLYING ACROSS THE RING AND HE LOOKS DUMBFOUNDED AS HE RUSHES BACK TO HIS FEET. LARS JUMPS BACK UP AS WELL AS POP RUNS AT LARS BUT LARS SIDE STEPS AND CATCHES HIM FROM BEHIND..AND SENDS POP FLYING AGAIN WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! HE BRIDGES IT! PIN!
Referee: ONE! TWO! TH-
Kawajai: NOT QUITE! A KICKOUT FROM THE HALL OF FAMER!
Nick Angel: POP rolls over to face Lars as Lars looks a bit surprised! Before Lars can raise himself back to his feet, POP with the quickness! BASEMENT DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF LARS GRIER’S HEAD! LARS GRABBING AT THAT SPOT NOW! POP FOLLOWING IT UP NOW..HE JUMPS OVER LARS AND NOW COMING FROM THE FRONT..HE GOES FOR A PENALTY KICK NOW! NO! LARS CATCHES IT! LARS STANDS UP WHILE KEEPING A HOLD ON POP’S LEG! POP SHAKING HIS HEAD NO! BUT LARS DOESN’T CARE HE VIOLENTLY TWISTS THE LEG AND POP IMMEDIATELY GOES DOWN! IS LARS GOING FOR AN ANKLE LOCK NOW? THAT’D DEFINITELY BE SMART, KEEP THE HIGHFLYER FROM FLYING!
Kawajai: Lars indeed targeting that ankle now..OW! LARS JUST STEPPED ON THE HEAD OF A DOWNED POP! IS THAT EVEN LEGAL! HE DROPS POP’S LEG NOW..POP trying to get back on his feet but he’s currently on all fours here..LARS GRIER WITH A NASTY KNEE TO THE SIDE OF POP! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! HE’S NOT LETTING POP BREATHE FOR A SECOND! EVEN THE REF IS DEMANDING LARS TO BACK OFF!
Lars: Oh, go to hell. This is apart of the game!
Nick Angel: Lars hits POP with a few more hard knees to the ribs and gut before letting off. He stands and poses for the crowd as they drown him in negativity! These people do NOT like Lars Grier! But he’s not wasting any time..he immediately turns his attention back to POP and goes to lift him up once again, gutwrench style. NO! POP QUICKLY TURNS OVER AND GREETS LARS’ JAW WITH A STIFF KICK! LARS STUMBLES BACK AND POP RACES UP..LARS CHARGES BUT POP WITH THE PELE KICK! LARS IS DOWN! LARS IS DOWN! POP not going for a pin here, instead he looks towards the top rope! POP points at the corner and we all know what he has in mind! Prince using the ropes to get to his feet once again as he drags Lars into good position! He leaps atop the corner in one swift movement and does his signature taunt! THERE HE GOES!
Kawajai: 450 SPLASH FROM PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL! HE MIGHT’VE DONE IT THERE BUT OBVIOUSLY BOTH MEN SUFFER TO AN EXTENT WITH A MOVE LIKE THAT! POP GRABBING AT HIS ALREADY INJURED ABDOMEN BUT DRAGS HIMSELF ACROSS LARS GRIER FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!
Referee & Crowd: ONEEE! TWOOO! THREE-
Kawajai: NO! SO CLOSE! LARS KICKS OUT RIGHT BEFORE THE THREE COUNT! THE 450 WASN’T ENOUGH! LOOKS LIKE IT’S GONNA TAKE MORE THAN THAT TO PUT LARS AWAY! IF THERE’S ONE THING WE CAN COMPLIMENT LARS ON, IT’S HIS RESILIENCY!
Nick Angel: INDEED, KAWA! POP looking frustrated now! He wants to go on and face Andrea Valentine for that Openweight belt and represent Voltage so badly! POP taking a few seconds to rethink his game plan here. However, Lars seems to be coming to so he might wanna hurry it up!
Kawajai: Lars Grier rolls over towards the same corner POP just leapt from, tired but still alive! POP brings himself back to his feet as he strolls over to the downed Lars.
POP: What’s it gonna take, huh?!
Kawajai: POP talking some trash here..
Lars: Fuck you.
Nick Angel: Ouch. This obviously enrages POP as he quickly stomps on Lars and grabs him by the hair! POP lifting Lars to his feet..both men are up now..POP looks to be setting Lars up for the Crown of Thorns! NO! LARS LIFTING THE PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL THROWING HIM FOR A LOOP! LARS WITH THE ADRENALINE RUSH RIGHT NOW! AND BACK DOWN HE GOES! ALABAMA SLAM FROM LARS! POP CRASHING INTO THE MAT! BUT NO PIN ATTEMPT! LARS KNOWS HE HAS TO FINISH THIS FOR GOOD!
Kawajai: POP IS LAID OUT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! WHAT’S GRIER THINKING NOW? The roles have reversed as now Lars is grabbing POP by the hair, lifting him back up..Lars lifts POP back onto his shoulders once again in a fireman’s carry position! IS HE GOING FOR IT? YES! THE STARFALL!
Nick Angel: WAIT, KAWA! POP JUST POPPED GRIER IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH A KNEE! POP JUMPS DOWN TO HIS FEET AS LARS RELEASES HIM! POP WITH ANOTHER KICK! ENZUIGURI! AND LARS FALLS! POP WASTES NO TIME GOING FOR THIS NEXT MOVE! WHAT’S HE GONNA TRY THIS TIME?
Kawajai: I THINK I MIGHT KNOW, ANGEL! POP QUICKLY JUMPS TO THE OUTSIDE APRON AND WAITS FOR LARS TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET AS THIS BUILDING IS JUST RUMBLING RIGHT NOW! LARS IS UP! POP HOPS ONTO THE TOP OF THE ROPE..HE LEAPS! SPRINGBOARD FOREARM SMASH!
Nick Angel: LARS GRIER REVERSES IT! BROKEN BEAK! BROKEN BEAK! THE SPEAR CATCHES POP IN MID-AIR! LARS GRIER JUST SHOT PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL RIGHT OUT OF THE SKY! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!
Kawajai: PIN HIM LARS! THAT’S GOTTA BE IT!
Nick Angel: LARS TRYING TO RECOLLECT HIMSELF AFTER THAT BURST OF ENERGY! THESE TWO HAVE BEEN BATTLING IT OUT BACK AND FORTH! THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET! POP IS DAMN NEAR LIFELESS! LARS SHOVES POP’S BODY AWAY FROM THE ROPES AND TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! PINFALL ATTEMPT!
Referee & Crowd: ONEE! TWOOO!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: THAT’S IT! LARS GRIER DID IT! HE’S FACING ANDREA VALENTINE AT TERRITORIAL INVASION! HE’S OUR REP!
(“4th Dimension” picks back up to a mixed reaction as Lars slowly rolls off of POP, trying to catch his breath. Lars then sits up as the ref checks on POP.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner and NEW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP! LARSSS GRIERRRRRR!
Nick Angel: I said that Lars Grier needed to win this just as bad as POP if not more and by God, he did it! It took almost everything out of him but he did it! Lars Grier vs. Andrea Valentine at Territorial Invasion! What an event it will be!
Kawajai: I doubted Lars but he pulled it off! And props to the always immaculate Prince of Phenomenal! He’s not a Hall of Famer for no reason! Tonight wasn’t his night but I know he’ll bounce back soon enough!
(Lars is helped to his feet and the referee raises his hand in victory. Lars nods, pleased with his work. He looks at POP who is still laying on the canvas and shakes his head and laughs before rolling out of the ring.)
Kawajai: Ladies and gentlemen, this is Kawajai signing off on another great episode of Sunday Night Voltage!
Nick Angel: And I am Nick Angel! Be sure to tune in next week, the action never stops! Marquee Event caliber matches on the weekly!
(The camera pans to Lars Grier walking back up the ramp with a smirk on his face along with a shot of POP finally sitting up and alert in the background watching Lars full of disdain as we fade to black.)
