(Andy Dominguez is seen in an area outside of the backstage area where several production trucks are seen. He barges into the main one.)
Andy: Which one of you guys have the tape from last week?
Production team member #1: Excuse me sir I’m going to have to ask you to leav-
Andy: No excuse yourself. Do you know who I am? I’m Andy Dominguez, CFO of EAW and then some. I demand some answers and I want them now. We can do this the easy way or we can do it the hard way. Where the hell is the security surveillance from last week?
Production team member: Alright alright calm down :whoa:. What footage exactly are you looking for.
Andy: A little before the main event of last week when I was bum rushed in the middle of the fucking ring. Devan Dubian snuck into the arena after being banned by myself and reprimanded by security. I need to know how he managed to still somehow find his way into the arena.
Production team member: Alright… let me just roll back the tape on this thing…. press this button… the main event started at around 10:50 so somewhere around that time… hmmmmm. Okay I got it! I see somebody entering the arena through a secret backdoor.
Andy: That’s definitely Dub. But wait, who’s that letting him in? Zoom in on that.
(He zooms in as it can be visibly seen who it is that let Dub into the arena last week.)
Andy: Matt Daniels….
(Andy frustratingly slams his fist onto the dashboard causing the frame in the picture to distort, he immediately gets up and storms out of the truck.)
(A recap of last week’s Voltage plays highlighting Xander Payne attacking VIP, Noah Reigner attacking Maximus Grier, POP trying to cause commotion between Daryl Kinkade & Charlie Marr, the contract signing between Chris Elite & Rex McAllister, and Devan Dubian being barred from the arena only to sneak back in and try to attack Andy Dominguez who swiftly escapes.)
(Voltage intro video plays featuring the song “Machine Gun” by Chase & Status, and we open up to the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts 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!!!!!! I’m Kawajai here with Nick Angel, and the days just get closer to Crossfire! Things are heating up, tensions are rising, rivalries are reaching new heights, or lows depending on who you ask. All in all, this just makes Voltage must see TV and I’m glad to be with you all for another week to see how this all unfolds.
Nick Angel: That’s right, I couldn’t agree more. Things tend to get extra juicy when we have an event around the corner and this is no different. I can’t help but can’t wait to get this show on the road though so let’s get to it!
(“Waves” by Kanye West hits to a big pop as Matt Daniels makes his way out in street clothes and a mic in hand, he does his peeps pose at the top of the ramp before entering the ring.)
Kawajai: Matt Daniels, the commissioner of Voltage has not had an easy ride here with his job, with The Enterprise breathing down his neck every chance they get, things have got to be stressful. He seems pretty collected here though so let’s see what he has in mind and why he’s about to address the crowd.
(“Waves” dies down as Matt begins talking)
Matt: Since the draft show, tensions have been brewing between two men on this Voltage brand. Two marquee names that I see carrying not only this brand, but this company into the future. What was once a petty back and forth between two prideful competitors has spiraled into something much more dangerous and something that has gotten very personal, very quick. It’s ugly folks, and that’s why I’m officially stepping in to ease these tensions before we go down a path that is just not ideal for anybody. I’d like it for everybody to walk out of this in one piece with everything in tact but I know that if this keeps going week after week one person will try to one-up the other and the disrespect will reach never before seen heights. If you don’t have an idea of what I’m getting at by now, I’m talking about Lars Grier and Noah Reigner.
(The crowd cheers at the mention of the two names)
Matt: Now don’t get me wrong I love a good old fashion rivalry just like the next person and I know you guys love to see people going at it with no regard for anything. But under no circumstances do I condone the actions of Noah Reigner last week. I have had officials and shareholders and other high ranking board members breathing down my neck because now they fear for the safety of other EAW employees at their headquarters and performance center. I don’t think you guys realize this, but Noah Reigner and his gang KIDNAPPED a former EAW employee on EAW premises, on camera! Threw him in the trunk of a car like some street thug, and then he proceeded to record himself and his crew assaulting him to a bloody pulp with weapons.
(Matt shakes his head in disappointment.)
Matt: It’s not good for business. It’s one thing for our talent who we employ to be put in these situations where they’re on the clock, in an arena where they’re expected to compete, and be attacked from behind or something. It’s ANOTHER thing when somebody is on their off day minding their business, or better yet SOMEBODY ISN’T EVEN IN THE DAMN COMPANY ANYMORE. I don’t think you people or Noah Reigner understand the compromising situation EAW has been put through. Maximus Grier is a businessman in his own right, he owns multiple companies and he’s a very wealthy man. That is why Maximus Grier doesn’t need EAW to survive and that is why he is no longer competing for us, with that said, he’s now threatening a huge lawsuit against this whole company. If you thought that The Enterprise and myself having a tug of war for power was bad, if Maximus gets his way we’d BOTH be working for him. That’s how serious this can get. That is why I’m out here right now, to put a halt to this never ending saga of bad blood and personal attacks on loved ones by the hands of Noah Reigner and Lars Grier, consider this a peace treaty of sorts, a truce. I hereby call the both of you out right here right now, to put an end to this once and for all!
(After several moments of waiting, “Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem blasts through the PA system to loud cheers as Noah Reigner makes his way out, CITV briefcase in hand followed behind by Cameron Church and Evelyn Ridley)
Nick: This man is the talk of the town, all week the people couldn’t stop talking about what happened last week between House Reigner and the Grier family, it got really ugly really quick but you can’t necessarily blame Noah for taking it to those heights. It’s almost as if people forget Lars is the same man who put his hands on the beautiful Evelyn Ridley with no regard for anything!
Kawajai: You have somewhat of a point Nick but at the end of the day, two wrongs don’t make a right. An eye for an eye only makes the world blind. Noah could have attacked Lars in the ring, he didn’t have to go for his family and stoop to his level.
(Noah and the crew enters the ring and stands across from a concerned looking Matt Daniels, while Noah looks on calmly.)
Matt: Sup? How about I tell you what’s NOT wassup. What’s NOT wassup is what you did last week and that was putting EAW in the position you put it in by doing what you did.
(Noah chuckles before beginning to speak.)
Noah: Let me get this right, EAW… a huge trillion dollar company with a million lawyers on retainer for any and every type of situation who gets sued on the regular and gets in all types of legal suits…. is shaking in their boots over Maximus Grier. I’m sorry but the thought of that alone is hilarious. Who the hell is Maximus Grier but a failed businessman who’s only barking because he wants you to put a stop to me, and it seems to be working in his favor.
Matt: Noah, I need you to end this squabble with Lars Grier, tonight.
Noah: Okay so we having a match or what?
Matt: No, go on in your own separate ways, or there will be repercussions.
Noah: You know, I don’t take kindly to threats. Especially from someone who has his panties in a bunch over one Maximus gave him. Maximus Grier is a con artist just like his brother and you’re a fucking idiot for feeding into his bullshit, I don’t know what kind of operating you’re running here but over at House Reigner, we don’t tuck our tails and wave white flags. We fight until the bitter end until a winner is declared. Let’s be real here, by some huge chance that Maximum sues EAW and wins, what effect does that have on me? What am I gonna do get fired? Okay, that’s one less investment into the future of this company and a cash in the vault winner down the drain. But it’s not the end of Noah Reigner, because Noah Reigner can compete in literally any company on this GLOBE and be welcomed with open arms. Noah Reigner can take over anywhere just like I’m taking over in EAW and I won’t miss a meal. So what are you going to do? Cave into the demands of a bust and his brother? Or let this sure thing right here lead your brand into becoming the most must-see show in all of EAW.
(Matt Daniels ponders and struggles to come up with a response.)
Noah: Exactly. The Griers are playing mind games. I’ve been in this business for too long to let something like this affect me and quite frankly so have you. What I’m going to do is this, I’m going to keep the pressure on Lars whether you like it or not. You see this woman right here? (points to Evelyn Ridley), he put his hands on her. When you fuck with one of mine, when you do something to my family, I do something to yours. People might look at last week and say “well now they’re even” but the thing is I don’t get even, I get OVER. I’m going to get one up over Lars week after week and make his life a living hell for all of the bullshit he caused my and my people all rooted from pure hatred and jealousy. I’m going to make an example out of Lars, Maximus, and whatever other Grier out there in this business that the last thing you want to do in an attempt to salvage your career and restore some glory to your tainted name, is to stand toe to toe against me.
(“4th Dimension” by Kids See Ghosts ft. Louis Prima to loud boos as Lars Grier storms up the ramp, Matt Daniels immediately tries to stop him from entering the ring but Lars persists and insists off mic that he won’t try to attack.)
Lars: Everybody’s acting like they’ve seen a ghost or something. You can put your fists down Noah, we both know you don’t use those until your two bitches do the dirty work for you beforehand. I won’t waste my time with that tonight, I’d like to speak to you instead. A lot can change in a month, I go from not being worthy of your attention to the point where you refuse to have a cordial conversation…… to being your main priority having your full undivided attention. I love the progress. The fUtUrE oF eAw actually cares about me now. It’s just unfortunate that it took all of this for it to happen, and what’s happened to lead up to it will result in your downfall after I kick your ass. Don’t worry though it won’t happen tonight but it’s coming soon.
Noah: Kick my ass? Are you forgetting what happened last week?
Lars: Of course not, how could I ever forget your coward ass hiding backstage and not facing me man to man while I looked around for you to confront you because I actually have a set. You’re too pampered Noah, you need to go out there in the trenches like me and see the world for yourself without getting his hands held.
Noah: See that’s where you get it all twisted. From day one you’ve judged me and have had this false idea of who I am based on my early success. Thinking that just because I make it look easy in that ring or because I’ve defeated marquee names or because I’ve made myself a fucking STAR in this company in less time than you did, that I have everything handed to me on a silver platter. Just because I MAKE it look easy doesn’t exactly mean that I HAVE it easy. Unlike some people my career didn’t start when I came here to EAW, I’ve been doing this for some time and I’ve honed my craft and I’ve gone through the trials and tribulations just like anyone else. That’s why when I finally did make it big time and came to EAW, I stood out from the bunch. So when you try to give me advice as if you’re a seasoned vet and I’m some lowly rookie who’s never experienced shit you’re damn right I’m going to disregard your underhanded bullshit. I had an undefeated streak that couldn’t be stopped until you decided to stick your nose where it didn’t belong. You’ve made my time here on Voltage more difficult than it has to be, but you’re no different than any other obstacle I’ve had to face and overcome. Wait actually you are, because you aren’t nearly as hard.
Lars: That’s cute, you could have been wrestling in bingo halls and middle school gyms for 20 plus years for all I give a fuck, at the end of the day there is no place like EAW and you know that. I tried to help but when you’re a entitled spoiled stuck up piece of shit know it all, you tend to react the way you do. You know what I see when I see you? I see an overprotected indyriffic clown who can’t go anywhere without his side bitch and his trainer holding his hands making sure their golden goose doesn’t get hurt. But here’s the thing, those two clowns standing behind you aren’t going to be able to fight every fight for you and you’re gonna get yours one way or another. If they decide to get in the way then House Reigner will just be collateral damage.
Noah: You know what I see when I see you? I see someone who started off on the same foot as me as someone who was considered a promising prospect and turned into a huge disappointment. I see somebody who has failed to rise to the occasion time and time again to the point where he’s become an afterthought who’s been long passed up. When EAW and REVOLT became one, you didn’t adapt to the change, you didn’t embrace the change, you ran away from the challenges that presented you, tucked your tail and continued to underachieve in typical Lars fashion. My first two months in this company and I have wins over the likes of Devan Dubian, Theron Nikolas, and Jack Ripley. I have a Cash in the Vault briefcase that damn near guarantees me a world championship by seasons end as long as I play my cards right. I have everything to show for my work, what do you have to show for yours? Broken promises and failed prospects and a deflated ego. You spent your time in the sun being treated like a ragdoll by Jamie O’Hara, then you got outclassed by Ahren Fournier… but for some reason you think that the reasonable solution to those problems which will get you back on track is to make an enemy out of Noah Reigner. To make matters worse, your brother is an absolute joke and even HE won a championship in this business before you did. You’ve been here going on two years and have nothing to show for it, no championship, no definitive moments, just a bunch of “what-ifs”. You left yourself out of that half assed history lesson a few weeks back it seems.
Lars: Yeah I lost to Jamie several times, I lost to Ahren, am I ashamed to say so? Not at all because those losses made me into the man that I am today and the man that’s going to kick your ass when it’s all said and done. You’re no Ahren Fournier and you’re DAMN SURE no Jamie O’Hara, you could never feel his shoes no matter how much these idiots who are just thirsty for a replacement hype you up. You’re a product of a hype machine and you’re the shiny new toy everyone will get tired of when that shine wears off and sees you for what you actually are, a one trick pony. You’ve had so much smoke blown up your ass that you think you want smoke with me, but I’ll tell you right now bro, you’re gonna choke.
Noah: Well how about this, how about you prove to the people just how much of a future bust(kinda like yourself) you think I am? Step into that ring with me one on one and for once in your life, back your bullshit up with actions instead of words.
(Matt Daniels interjects and gets in the middle of the two)
Matt: Woah! Woah! Woah! Gentlemen! We are supposed to be calling a truce here, not adding flame to the fire.
Lars: It’s fine Matt, you can’t put this fire out. No way no how. I’ll tell you what though, that Maximus Grier problem you’re having, I can make this whole thing with Maximus go away if you give me what I want.
Matt: What do you want?
Lars: I want Noah Reigner one on one, in a match at Crossfire.
Noah: Now you’re talking my language.
Lars: No but’s, you make this happen and it’s all water under the bridge. You’ll be able to breathe a sigh of relief and nothing will be filed outside of Noah’s death certificate. I would like to bring Maximus with me by my side as well, I think he deserves to get a front row seat to see his kidnappers getting their asses kicked one by one.
Matt: Alright you got it. At Crossfire it will be Lars Grier taking on Noah Reigner!
(The crowd pops at the announcement)
Noah: If I may, I’d like to up the stakes. How about we make this…. an Extreme Rulez match! Lars deserves to feel the same pain his poor brother did last week.
Lars: I’ll do you one better, an Extreme Rulez match….. with your Cash in the Vault briefcase on the line. You’re a sure thing right? So prove it.
Noah: You’re on. You just might meet the Chair-man again.
Lars: I won’t count on it. See you soon.
(Lars drops the mic and brushes past Evelyn and Cameron while exiting the ring as “4th Dimension” picks back up. Noah and Matt Daniels look on as Lars backpedals down the ramp yelling off mic at Noah.)
Nick Angel: Another huge match has been announced for Crossfire! Lars Grier vs Noah Reigner with the CITV briefcase at stake in an Extreme Rulez match! I can’t wait!
Kawajai: Call me optimistic but I honestly feel like this is a different Lars from what we’ve been used to seeing over the past few months, he seems revitalized. And we all know what Noah is capable of so this should be a great one!
Nick Angel: Well Lars has a huge test tonight against the former Answers World Champion Scott Diamond! We’ll see if that theory holds true.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall.
Crowd: One Fall!
(‘When Doves Cry’ by Prince plays as Marcus Washington makes his way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Chicago, Illinois, weighing in at 213 pounds, MARCUUUUS WASHINGTOOOOON!
Kawajai: Ladies and gentlemen we’re getting started with the first match of the night and we’re joined on commentary by the one and only…
VIP: Vincent I. motherfuckin’ Pride. Thank you Kawajai and we’re here to see the momentarily New Breed Champion get beat by two rookies. Seems interesting.
(‘Second Guessings’ by Get Scared bumps through the speakers as Chase Conners makes his way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing next, from Des Moines, Iowa, weighing in at 178 pounds, CHASEEEE CONNEEEEEEERSSSSSS.
Angel: Chase Conners, a high-flying submission specialist who made his debut on 2009, seems pretty experienced, but does he have what it takes to make it in EAW?
VIP: It doesn’t matter how experienced he is wrestling in front of 20 people, you gotta have something special to make it here, just like I have. However, I still think they will be able to beat this fat ass.
(‘It Follows’ by Cane Hill blasts through the speaker as Xander walks onto the stage, scanning the crowd in attendance.)
Bella Braxton: And last but not least, from Brampton, Ontario weighing in at 255 pounds! HE IS THE NEWWWW BREED CHAMPION…. XAAAAANDERRRRR PAAAAAYYYYYNEEE!!
Kawajai: This should be an easy win for Xander Payne, he’s more experienced, he has the resposibility of being a champion. I think he will win this for sure.
(Xander enters the ring as he holds the New Breed Title high looking at VIP with a smirk on his face.)
VIP: This bozo wants the smoke, huh? He can have fun with these two guys, but when I go there and take the title from him, he won’t be so confident anymore.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: The match is underway as all of the three men circle eachother and it’s Marcus and Conners who start the fight exchanging fists and kicks between them as Xander Payne looks carefully. Marcus has Conners on the corner stomping him on the stomach, but now Conners gets Washington on the corner as he stomps and kicks him furiously, meanwhile Xander Payne sits on the opposite turnbuckle unbothered. Conners grabs Washington by the hair and throws him towards Xander, but Xander gets out of the way as Washington collides to the corner. Payne with a couple of elbows to Conners, as he gets him on the corner alongside Washington, AND PAYNE NOW WITH THE CLOTHESLINE ON THE CORNER HAVING BOTH MEN DOWN. PAYNE GOES FOR THE COVER ON WASHINGTON!
Ref: ONE! TW-
VIP: KICKOUT! THE FAT MOTHAFUCKA COVERS CHASE CONNERS NOW!
Ref: ONE! TWO!
VIP: AND A KICKOUT AS EXPECTED. Did this dumbass really think he got it just with a clothesline?
Angel: However Xander now has Washington up on his feet as he throws him out of the ring, now taking care of Conners, as he connects with the german suplex, which gets followed with a fisherman’s suplex. Xander is fired up as he stands on the corner waiting for Conners to get up… DISCUST PALM STRIKE! XANDER GOES FOR THE COVER, BUT WASHINGTON IS BACK AND HE GRABS XANDER BY THE FEET GETTING HIM OUT OF THE RING, AND NOW BOTH MEN FURIOUSLY HITTING EACHOTHER WITH ELBOWS AND PUNCHES, AND WASHINGTON THROWS PAYNE HEAD FIRST ON THE RING POST. THE CHAMPION IS HURT.
VIP: Oh that’s nothing, when he meets the 6ix God, he’ll have to take much more damage than that. Get up now, fucking dummy.
Kawajai: Washington gets on the ring and is greeted by a DDT from Conners. Conners with a snapmare to Washington which is followed by a kick to the chest, now Conners USING THE ROPES FLIES RIGHT TO PAYNE, WHICH CRAWLS HIS WAY TO OUT ANNOUNCE TABLE, WHERE HE SLOWLY GETS ON HIS FEET.
VIP: Xanny, do you love me?
Xander (off-mic): Shut the hell up!
( VIP gets on his feet as Xander goes away. )
VIP: That’s right boy, go away.
Kawajai: But meanwhile Conners now having the cover on Washington after connecting with the “Breaking Point”. The facebuster did it’s job as he now covers.
Ref: ONE! TWO!
Angel: Xander saves the match as all three man are exhausted. Conners gets on his feet first as he’s followed by Xander. Conners connects with a neckbreaker, but Xander gets quickly on his feet as he’s met by a snap suplex. Xander is on the corner as now Washington assists to get Xander out of the way. Both men giving Xander a hard time as Washington connects with the shinning wizard, which is followed by a moonsault by Conners. Conners now goes for the quick pin!
VIP: Sneaky! Get it boy!
Angel: Washington breaks the pin, as he looks at Conners furiously.
Marcus: What do you think you’re doing?
Angel: Ouch! A low blow by Chase Conners as he goes for the roll-up!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THR-
VIP: Huh, Liam Payne’s cousin breaks the pin. Kawajai, Nick, look at him. He’s barely surviving against these two amateurs, what makes you think he will retain against somebody like me?
Kawajai: We don’t know that yet, but Xander gets Conners out of the ring AS HE CONNECTS WITH THE LAST DOSE! THE PUMPHANDLE NECKBREAKER! COVER!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREEE-
Kawajai: OH MY GOD MARCUS WASHINGTON ACTUALLY KICKED OUT! NOW CHASE CONNERS IS BACK ON THE RIND AS HE CONNECTS WITH THE CLOTHESLINE SENDING BOTH XANDER AND HIMSELF OUT OF THE RING! THEY’RE BOTH STANDING ON THE FLOOR EXHAUSTED FROM THE BACK AND FORTH ACTION. MARCUS WASHINGTON BARELY MAKING HIS WAY UP USING THE ROPES. XANDER USING THE BARRICADE TO GET UP, CONNERS USING THE APRON TO GET UP, BUT WHOA, A SUICIDE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE GETTING ALL THREE MEN OUT! THIS MIGHT BE A GOLDEN CHANCE FOR ANYONE WHO GET’S UP FIRST!
VIP: Hopefully not the fat boy…
Angel: It looks like Xander is up first as he is followed by Marcus Washington, BUT A SUPERKICK TO MARCUS BY XANDER PAYNE, XANDER THROWS CHASE CONNERS INTO THE RING, AS HE DELIVERS ANOTHER SUPERKICK! IT COULD BE OVER! XANDER GETS CONNOR IN POSITION FOR THE “PAYNEKILLER”… AND IT CONNECTS! THE COVER!
Ref: ONE!!! TWOOO!!! THREEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, The New Breed Champion, XANDERRRRR PAYNEEEEEE!
Kawajai: Just as expected, Xander Payne got the win over Chase Conners and Marcus Washington. Your thoughts on it, VIP?
VIP: I’ll show you my thoughts right now!
( Xander is celebrating his victory as VIP gets into the ring and both of them stare eachother down. )
Xander (off-mic): You’re mad right? That’s how you’re going to end up too!
VIP (off-mic): You think so, pleighboi? I’ll squash you just like my boi Drake squashes the haters! And I’ll get payback for what you did to me last week.
Xander (off-mic): Hey, chill. I don’t want to cause trouble, I just…
Angel: OH AND AN ELBOW RIGHT TO THE JAW OF VIP AND THERE IS A BRAWL GOING ON RIGHT NOW! VIP SHOTS BACK WITH SOME VICIOUS PUNCHES, SO DOES PAYNE! THESE TWO WON’T LET EACHOTHER GO AS THERE’S SECURITY ON THE RING SEPARATING THE TWO NEW BREEDS! A CHAOTIC MATCH, THE HEAT IS UP! I’M EXCITED TO SEE A FIGHT BETWEEN THESE TWO!
Kawajai: IT’S GOING TO BE A BRUTAL MATCH, BUT SURELY AND AWESOME ONE! THE HATE DEVELOPED BETWEEN THESE TWO IS MASSIVE. I HAVE FAITH THESE TWO WILL MAKE IT AN AWESOME MATCH AT CROSSFIRE!
(The scene fades backstage where we see Kathy Kush standing in the backstage interview area with a smile on her face and mic in hand.)
Kathy Kush: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time..the number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship, Rex McAllister!
(The camera pans out and Rex comes into frame with a smirk as a loud pop can be heard from the fans in attendance.)
Kathy Kush: Rex, last week you and Chris Elite made your title match at Crossfire official. As pointed out last week, if you were to win this match up, you will have held two EAW World Championships. What’re your thoughts going into the match considering your previous interactions with Chris?
Rex McAllister: I’ll start with one thing, Kathy. Look at my reign as EAW Champion, and then look at Chris Elite’s reign as World Heavyweight Champion. I was a fighting champion and did everything on my own meanwhile Chris can barely make it out of a defense without some sort of interference or assistance, and for some odd reason some of these people watching at home and in the audience eat it up! That’s not a real champion. As for the last couple weeks, we all saw me lay Chris out with the Rex Effect during the tag match. That was only a sneak peek of what’s to come at Crossfire. He can talk all the crap he wants like he did last week but all that matters is what happens in that ring. If he can’t save his ass during a tag match, he’s gonna have a hell of a time fending me off one-on-one.
Kathy Kush: So you’re saying you’re a better champion than Chris Elite?
Rex McAllister: He’s a joke. I have what it takes to represent this company – like I was before Pain for Pride – and be its face. I’m the best wrestler on this roster, and I say that stretching across ALL of the brands and I’ve long since proven that. I don’t need shady antics to win like Blayde did last week such as low blows, I don’t need to use weapons, and I don’t need my hand held by Big Mike so yes, I’m better. I’ve only been temporarily knocked off of my throne of champion, but at Crossfire I get that back and reestablish myself as the measuring stick of EAW.
Kathy Kush: Well, Rex, thank you for your time and good luck at Crossfire!
Rex McAllister: Trust me, I’m not the one who needs luck.
(Rex walks away as Kathy is left with a taken aback look on her face.)
(The camera fades back to the ring as Bella Braxton can be seen standing by)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: One fall!
( ‘We Are’ by Hollywood Undead blasts through the speakers while Jason Ryan makes his way to the ring )
Bella Braxton: Introducing First! From Billings, Montana weighing in at 245 pounds….. JAAASONNNNNN RYYYYYANNNN!!!!!!!!
Kawajai: Last week, Jason Ryan won against the Disgrace, Carpenter Munrowe. Tonight, he has another chance to showcase his talent and skill against the dangerous Jacob Moore!
( ‘As Jason enters the ring, ‘Today’ by Smashing Pumpkins plays while Jacob Moore walks down the ramp, entering the ring )
Nick Angel: I mean Kawajai, there is a huge reason why Jacob Moore is a dangerous man. 99 percent of the time, it is impossible to predict what move will he take next. He is an unpredictable man with dangerous and deadly intentions, that is why he is called the American Psycho.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Kawajai: The match is underway as both men are quick on their feet, circling around the ring looking for a huge opening! This is such an interesting matchup we got here. The self-proclaimed ‘Son Of Satan’ against the American Psycho, both men seeking to make a name for themselves in the land of Elite!
Nick Angel: The lock up at the center of the ring, testing to determine who is superior in the ring when it comes to strength and authentic power. The notorious test of strength is in play here as Moore appears to be overpowering Jason Ryan! Ryan refuses to be on the receiving end of humiliation as he shoves Moore away, making him crash into the ground and scrambling into the corner. Ryan steps down onto one knee, slowly cranking up something, which appears to be his hand. He slowly sticks a middle finger at Moore! Ryan straight-up stealing the signature taunts of Moore! Talk about insult to injury!
Kawajai: Moore charges at Ryan, cartwheeling as he sucker’d him into the corner! Moore steps down onto one knee, cranking his hand, slowly sticking the middle finger! Both men are involved in a battle of wits. Instead of focusing on the task of hand, they have chosen to mock each other!
Nick Angel: Kawajai, it seems that it is 1-1 in the battle of wits! However, Ryan has had enough with mind games, quickly charging at Moore like a seeking missile taking him down and throwing punches at a grounded Moore! Moore is in trouble as Ryan is on top, pummeling Moore in a ground and pound position!
Kawajai: This match just escalated from zero to one hundred as Ryan has the dominant position, sending powerful blows down on the face of Moore! Moore trying desperately to get out of the hold, sticking his fingers into the eyes, illegally gouging it to get out of the hold! It works as Ryan is yelling in pain, clutching his eyes! Moore immediately crawls over to the blinded Ryan, raining down strikes, specifically on the eye socket area! Moore picks up Ryan, irish whipping him into the opposite corner and aggressively following up with a relentless european uppercut! Moore not slowing down on his offensive attack as he picks him up, wrapping his arms around his neck and dropping him with a swinging neckbreaker! Cover!
Nick Angel: Jason gets his shoulder up at two! Moore is still not done, sinking his nails into the eye socket of Ryan! The referee shoves Moore away as there is significant damage applied on the eye socket of Jason Ryan! The referee now asking the in-pain Jason Ryan as Moore is climbing up the turnbuckles, stalking the exposed Jason Ryan! Ryan has no idea where he is as he slowly gets on his feet! MOORE JUMPS OFF THE TOP AND CONNECTS WITH THE MISSILE DROPKICK TO THE HEAD OF RYAN!!
Kawajai: Both men slowly getting up as Moore is on his feet while Ryan is on his two knees! MOORE WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE EYE SOCKET AREA OF RYAN!!!! No!!! RYAN DODGES THE KNEE!!! Moore turns around and RYAN LIFTS HIM UP AND CONNECTS WITH THE POP-UP SUPERKICK!! Moore rebounds off the ropes WITH A SUPERKICK OF HIS OWN!!!! Both men are staggering onto one knee!
Nick Angel: They are both using each other to get up! MOORE STRIKES FIRST AS HE WRAPS HIS ARM AROUND HIS LEFT ARM, LIFTING HIM UP FOR THE HIS LAST WALK! RYAN GRABS HIS ARM IN MID AIR AND SENDS HIM TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING WITH AN ARM DRAG! Moore turns around and is met with a FLIPPING SPEAR!!!!!! NO!! HE SIDESTEPS IT, DODGING THE DEVASTATING SPEAR!!!! Jason just went crashing into the turnbuckles as Moore lifts him up and sets him on the top turnbuckle!! Moore joins him on the top as well! Moore is standing, both feet on the ropes as he jumps onto Ryan in a headscissors hold! BUT RYAN HOLDS ON!
Kawajai: The Avalanche Hurricanrana attempt has backfired as Ryan has him in a powerbomb position! HE TRANSITIONED HIM INTO AN ARGENTINE BACKBREAKER HOLD!!! NO!!!! NO!!! BURNING HAMMER OFF THE TOP ROPE!!!
Nick Angel: Kick out! Moore was attempting the Landslide, but it failed as Ryan held onto him, transitioning him into an argentine backbreaker hold and sending him into the canvas with an Avalanche Burning Hammer! Ryan is in complete shock as he slowly picks Moore up, hooking both arms for the Fatal Blow! He lifts him up! MOORE REVERSES WITH AN HURRICANRANA!!!
Kawajai: Ryan gets up charging at Moore! Jacob dodges it, jumping on the ropes and SPRINGBOARDING OFF IT, CONNECTING WITH THE MAGNIFICENT MILE KICK! THE SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK CONNECTS!! However, Moore couldn’t pin him as he immediately rolled out of the ring!!!
Nick Angel: Moore is exhausted, slamming his fist on the mat with disappointment. He now begins to climb up the turnbuckles as Ryan uses the barricades to get up! MOORE SOARS OFF THE TOP ROPE! BUT RYAN CATCHES HIM IN MID AIR!!!! RYAN CAUGHT HIM IN MID AIR AS HE RELENTLESSLY THROWS MOORE INTO THE RINGPOST WITH A LAWN DART!! Ryan immediately picks him up, throwing him into the ring!

Nick Angel: Jason Ryan was seconds away from connecting with the Last Rites, but Moore reversed it into the His Last Walk! Congratulations to Jacob Moore!
(Matt Daniels is seen in his office as he’s talking on the phone)
Matt: I saw Showdown last night and the proposal made by Hurricane Hawk is very intriguing, I’ve been talking to some representatives from Empire and Dynasty and from what I’m gathering the proposal is something that is being considered. What’s my answer to it? You know ever since he made that declaration my phone hasn’t stopped blowing up with that same question, but here’s how I feel about it and my answer to Hawk-
(Matt’s door opens as an angry Andy Dominguez storms through)
Matt: I-I’ll call you back. (click) Look, I can expl-
Andy: You look like you’ve seen a ghost, well you should. Yes please explain how you deliberately snuck Devan Dubian into the arena last week despite knowing my demands suggesting otherwise. Not only did you undermine my authority but you also put me in a compromising position.
Andy: You have nothing to say because you’ve been caught red handed!
(Andy gets in Matt’s face and grabs him by the collar before aggressively pinning him up against the wall)
Andy: I should kick your ass right here right now.
Matt: Get your hands off of me.
Andy: Or what? You gonna revert to Captain Charisma? You gonna attack me? You lay a hand on me and your job is down the drain and it’s back to wherever the hell you’ve been rotting at over the past 6 years.
???: Let him go, now.
(Devan Dubian walks in the office as a surprised Andy lets go of Matt and brings his attention to Devan)
Dubian: Who looks like they’ve seen a ghost now? For one, leave Matt alone. You and LC claim to be against the authority types who abuse their power and bully their way to the top with their power but you’ve become everything that you hate. The very entity LC made his return promo talking down on is what he’s managed to create a month later.
Andy: How about you mind your business? This is a personal matter, I don’t go around messing with just anybody.
Dubian: Is that right? Then how did I end up in this situation with LC? Exactly. I have every reason to kick your ass right here right now for what you did last week at Midsummer Massacre and what you did the day after trying to block me from making my way into the arena. But I’ll give you a chance to make it right before deciding on what I’ll do with you.
???: Slow your role kid, nothings happening here tonight.
(Lethal Consequences alongside Jackson Blayde appears)
LC: Hey Dubby, heard you were looking for me last week. Sorry I had left Newark shortly after beating you at MSM and went back to The Bay for a celebration party. I’m here now though. You forgot already? You’re the one who made it personal by attacking Andy. I just wanted a nice little friendly competition against good ol’ Dub, one of the top acts in this whole company. But Dub crossed The Enterprise now he’s mad that he paid for it.
Dubian: The only thing I have been concerned about has been winning another World Championship here in EAW, everything else is irrelevant. Unfortunately that path was ruined when you and your pal stuck your nose where it didn’t need to be and left me sidetracked. Now you have my undivided attention for the time being, I want a rematch and I want it at Crossfire.
Andy: No way no h-
LC: Wait Andy, let’s consider it. This clown is hurt because he ate that L last week, it happens to the best of us. LC appreciation day aka Midsummer Massacre was destined to go in my favor.
Dubian: You know you wouldn’t have won that match without the outside factors. I guess being on a powertrip is a great thing when the shoe’s on your foot.
LC: Heh. Power. You’d know a thing or two about getting ahead with power. I’m surprised you actually are still even in EAW knowing that your friends who once had power are no longer around to help catapult you and cover up you glaring mediocrity. It’s a new era Dub, you ain’t at the TOP no more and neither are them rejects. Who’s to say I don’t got a personal gripe with you either since you’re the closest thing left to them so you’ll feel what I felt all those years by being guilty by association? The era you made a name in is long gone and so are the gatekeepers of that time. Now I’M the one everybody has to go through first for approval. The Blue Moon, the Most Unique! The-
Dubian: It’s funny you say that my era is over, from you of all people. There’s nothing unique about you anymore LC, this isn’t 2011. Once you get passed the somewhat funny one liners and the puns and the overused memes, we get to the bottom of who you really are. Which is one of the most overrated pieces of shit to ever grace this company and can never experience any success standing by himself. Let’s talk about association, where would you be without Banks’ infatuation with you? Where would you be if you and Andy didn’t have a thing in common for running ponzi schemes? You can say you dropped Banks, but your independence never lasted and the majority of the time that you’ve stood by yourself you’ve been a FAILURE. You’ll do anything to not experience that same failure anymore and that’s why you’re stooping to the level you’re on now. That’s why you’re doing everything you can to compensate and make up for the last few years. It’s too late, we’ll never be on the same level I’ve long passed you up. When you returned years back you were getting your ass handed to you by younger talents, when I returned years back I took over the damn company and signified a new era. THAT’S the difference between the two of us. Your best hope is that Jackson Blayde guy over there but even he’ll eventually look at you guys and realize his worth is a lot more than being muscle for two old bitter power hungry bottom feeders. But then again last time Andy mentored somebody they turned out to be Chris Hessian, so let’s hope this one works out better.
LC: You got your assed kicked by a power hungry bottom feeder at MSM. You have never been better than me nor will you ever be. You know why Andy chose to mentor a colossal bust in Chris Hessian? Because he saw nothing in you but trouble, you thought you were hot shit from the jump because of people gassing your head up. It’s hard to see the potential in a new guy who gravitated towards everything wrong with EAW. You already thought your shit hadn’t stunk because you sat at the cool rejects table. Sure in the end you outlasted your rookie class, the Dark Demons, the Kawajais, the Colin Kalines, the Moonlight Predators, the Hessians, the Erik Yungs, shit might as well throw Scott and POP into it too, I’m sure people value you over them. But at the end of the day Dub, you know like I know… you’re a product of knowing the right people just like you say I am.. and if those people were in the same circle jerk cliques as you well they’d be around still too.
Dub: Is that right? Let me prove to you otherwise then. If I recall, only one of us needed our “connections” to help us win at Midsummer Massacre. I have nobody in my corner, all I have to back me up are these (raises fists). You can call it a turning of the tables. I just call it me not needing help to kick your ass.
LC: Word? You got yourself the match. I’ll see you later tonight and I’ll see you at Crossfire. Don’t forget to bring your balls with you next time. Let’s go guys.
(The Enterprise all storm off leaving Matt and Dub looking on)
(DING! DING! DING)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
(‘Don’t Stop’ by InnerPartySystem’ blares throughout the arena as Noah Reigner makes his way down the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first! From Seattle, Washington weighing in at 184 pounds…. HE IS THE 2018 CASH IN THE VAULT WINNER….. NOAHHHHHHH REEEEEIIIIIGNER!!!!!!!!!!
Nick Angel: For the last four months, Reigner has been on a roll, carrying on his winning streak. This winning streak lasted from his debut in April, to two weeks, which was put to a halt by Devan Dubian with some help from Lars Grier. He’s yet to win a match here on Voltage since being drafted here due to all of the distractions so tonight he hopes to get back to his winning ways.
(‘Noah walks over to his corner, sitting down as he awaits for the presence of his opponent. ‘Mayhem’ by Halestorm plays as Carpenter Munrowe shoots through the curtain to an abundance and plethora of boos)
Bella Braxton: His opponent.. From Louisville, Kentucky weighing in at 200 pounds……. CAAAARRPENTERRRRR MUUUNNNNNROOOOWWWWWE!!!!
Kawajai: Just like Reigner, Munrowe was on the receiving end of a loss last week. For the past couple of weeks, Munrowe has chosen to stay quiet. If he could prevail against the 2018 Cash In The Vault Winner, this could put his name on the map.
(As Munrowe walks over to his corner, he refuses to acknowledge Reigner as he hasn’t even looked at him. Then, the referee signals for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING)
Kawajai: We can truly see the determination and aspiration in both contestants eyes as they stare each other down. Reigner and Munrowe are desperate and hungry to get a win under their track record, especially Munrowe. Munrowe with a spit right to the face of Noah Reigner. What a sign of disrespect! Carpenter possesses a smirk on his face as NOAH RESPONDS WITH A V-TRIGGER! MUNROWE IS OUT COLD!!! Noah hooks his leg for the pin!
(‘Don’t Stop’ by InnerPartySystem blasts through the speaker while the crowd is in disbelief after the shortcoming for Carpenter Munrowe)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… NOAHHHH REIGNER!!!!
Kawajai: What a way to win. NoaH Reigner with an immediate V-Trigger right to the face of Carpenter Munrowe after the disrespectful spit to his face!
Nick Angel: This is a certainly a disappointing loss for Carpenter Munrowe. Hopefully soon enough, he can gather himself and get his head back into the game!
(Before walking into the back, Reigner raises his Cash In The Vault briefcase in the air.)
(Charlie Marr is seen sitting in the locker room taping his wrists as suddenly he’s approached by Daryl Kinkade)
Daryl: Hey Charlie, you ready for tonight?
Charlie: Of course, how about you?
Daryl: Wouldn’t miss it for the world, but look man, I just wanna say I’m sorry about last week. You know just like I know that POP has been trying to drive this tension between us and cause us to not be on the same page in order to give him an advantage going into Crossfire.
Charlie: Of course, he knows it just like everybody else knows it that his title reign is coming to a swift end so he’s reaching and hoping something sticks. Don’t sweat it I know you didn’t intend to hit me. And about going behind your back to lobby for a match, I really didn’t mean anything by it. I thought you’d understand and if that rubbed you the wrong way I’m sorry. I should’ve consulted with you first.
Daryl: Initially I felt a way but now? Honestly. I wouldn’t wanna share this moment with anybody else but you, win lose or draw. I’m glad we’re in this match together, may the best man win. Anybody but POP.
Charlie: Well you did say best man, which POP is far from compared to us two.
Daryl: Haha you’re right about that. Let’s show him that MarrKade is still a cohesive unit and the best tag team in this whole company. Let’s show him that he’s in over his head and that title reign is coming to an end real soon.
Charlie: I wouldn’t want it any other way. Besides, POP is the only one who’s gonna have to team up with somebody he doesn’t get along with, not us. Hope he has fun playing second fiddle to the “bhampion” with that inflated ego of his.
Daryl: Oh that should be fun to see…
(Daryl and Charlie fist bump as the camera fades to black.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is a SINGLES MATCH!!! Introducing first…..
(‘4th Dimension’ by Kids See Ghost hits to a mixed reaction as Lars Grier walks down the ramp, looking more focused than ever for this match, as he slides into the ring).
Bella Braxton: From Cincinnati, Ohio, weighing in at 265lbs….. LARS!!! GRIER!!!
Nick Angel: It wasn’t too long ago Lars managed to bounce back from his long string of setbacks. It’s a slow start, but considering he’s showing signs of getting back to the man he was, I don’t think it’ll be long before we see the grier we used to know…
Kawajai: I hope he’s as ready as you say Nick…. Because the man he’s saying, well-
(‘Shook Ones’ by Mobb Deep hits as Lars and many in the audience look, and see Scott Diamond walk out. The 300 pound monster looks unafraid as he leaps onto the outside apron, and The Referee has to keep Lars and Scott apart as they face off).

Kawajai: AND LARS GRIER SHOVES THE REFEREE ASIDE, AND CHARGES THE ANIMAL THAT IS SCOTT DIAMOND!!!! The Referee sees he can’t control this, he calls for the bell!!

Nick Angel: And we’re off, Lars Grier trying to work Scott in the corner, not a bad strategy, press the big man up against the wall of the proving ground and try to wear him down. But it seems The Referee doesn’t think so as he starts yelling to Lars to bring it back to the ring center!!!

The Crooked man is flattened, Diamond basking in the air of the crowd, both cheering and booing him, as he exits to the outside. The Referee screaming for them to get back in!!
Nick Angel: Gotta imagine being Scott Diamond right now. Tossing around a 265lbs Lars grier like he’s nothing, the guy seems entertained as he pulls Lars back to his feet, by his EARS!!! Ouch!!!- WAIT!!!

Nick Angel: I hope Noah Reigner is watching. This is a clear message for what’s in store two weeks from now.
(The mystery lady who had been standing there the whole time gives off a light chuckle as she makes her way to the back.)
(The Camera focuses on Lars as he rolls out of the ring, and wipes, the adoration of the crowd for both men deafening as he heads up, and the camera fades [TRANSITION] ).
(The camera fades to the backstage area where we see Prince of Phenomenal, National Elite Championship on his left shoulder, roaming one of the hallways.)
POP: Where is this dude..
(POP keeps walking for a couple more seconds before coming to a stop.)
POP: There you are!
(The camera pans to the left as we see Chris Elite standing there dressed in his ring gear with his World Heavyweight Championship.)
Chris Elite: Yes indeed. So let’s go over our lil gameplan for later on, huh? So, last time we teamed that was nice and all because we won but I think-
POP: But what? We won, that’s all that matters.
Chris Elite: BUT that ending was pretty messy. We gotta get on the same page.
POP: Same page? You know, I agree, because you almost cost us the match and I was the one who saved our asses.
(Chris’ chill expression changes.)
Chris Elite: Excuse me?
POP: You heard me.
Chris Elite: Listen oldhead, I’m the World Heavyweight Champion so you need to listen to me. Besides, I beat you a few weeks back so I mean, we know who’s really the better man here.
POP: Nah, I have the experience and I’m the greatest champ going today, no oldhead bullshit. I’ve proven I can hang with these newbies and beat them all the same. Hell, I pinned Daryl last time and I’ll have no problem doing it again. Just let me do my thing because your thing seems to be getting saved at the last second – by me or Big Mike or whoever.
(Elite chuckles while POP rolls his eyes.)
Chris Elite: Bruh, I don’t care who you pinned because you did it just barely. POP NOT holdin’ it down. If you wanna get this next dub we gotta work together but I’m fosho not taking orders from you. I’m on top of the mountain here, not you. You out here facing the Charlie Marr’s, I’m facing the Rex’s. Two very different things.
POP: And yet, Rex whooped you last time. Listen, you don’t wanna take orders from me, I don’t wanna take ‘em from you so there was no purpose to this little meeting. Just don’t cost me this otherwise there’s gonna be some problems.
(Chris gets in Prince’s face as they start to have a staredown.)
Chris Elite: You think I’m scared of you or something?
POP: You should be.
Chris Elite: Riiiight.
POP: Screw this. Just try not to cost us the match, “Champ”. See you out there.
(POP walks out of frame clutching his NE title while Chris is shown shaking his head with a smile on his face. The scene fades elsewhere.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is SCHEDULED FOR, ONE FALL!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
Bella Braxton: AND IS A TAG TEAM MATCH!!!!! Introducing first….
(‘A Boogie‘ by Odee plays as Chris Elite walks out, World Heavyweight Championship slung over his shoulder, he slides into the ring and hands his belt to the referee).
Bella Braxton: From Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 210lbs….. He is the World Heavyweight Champion…. CHRIS!!! ELITE!!!!
(‘If I Had a Heart’ by Fever Ray hits as The Prince of Phenomenal comes out, the National Elite Championship wrapped around his waist, he takes off his hood, walking down to the ring. He unbuttons his title as he enters, holding it high to the crowd before handing it to the referee as well.
Bella Braxton: And His Tag Team Partner…. From South Beach, Florida, Weighing in at 220lbs…. He is the National Elite Champion….. THE PRINCE!!! OF PHENOMENAL!!!!
(‘This Charming Man’ by The Smiths hits to a mixed reaction as Charlie Marr comes out, locking eyes with a confident POP and Elite who meet him at the ramp side ropes, forcing him to enter on the far side ones).
Bella Braxton: And their opponents…. From London, England, weighing in at 240lbs….. CHARLIE!!! MARR!!!!
(‘What a Shame’ Too close To Touch plays to a positive crowd reaction, as Daryl Kinkade enters, the champions blocking Daryl the same way they did Charlie, and forcing him to meet his partner at their corner).
Bella Braton: And his Tag team Partner….. From Norwich, England, weighing in at 215lbs…. DARYL!!!!! KIIIINKADE!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Nick Angel: Starting off strong as The Prince of Phenomenal, POP himself is in the ring with Charlie Marr. It looks like Charlie wants to lock up, but POP keeps his distance, one hand out sort of feeling the distance reach.
Kawajai: Gotta admire Kinkade and Marr. Everytime a show asks you to take a match, you’re given a contract. So to take a match against the National Elite AND World Heavyweight Champion- gotta give it up for the two prospects, it might not look good, but they’ve got balls of steel.
Nick Angel: Truly- POP grabbin’ the right arm of Marr, Marr sending some punches POP’s way but he blocks with free arm covering his temple- OOF!!! POP with a shoot kick to Marr’s right leg, and now a Frontkick!!! He breaks off from Marr and rebounds- DROPKICK!!!! NO!!! Marr swivels out of the way and lands on one knee on the floor, Charlie Marr running- FOREARM SMASH TO POP!!!! Pop is rocked as Charlie rebounds- ANOTHER FOREARM SMASH!!!! POP drops to a knee, Charlie with another rebound- HURRICANA TO THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION!!!
Kawajai: NO DICE!!!! Pop pushes Charlie off, and sends a kick right to the body of Marr, but Marr catches it- PELE KICK!!!! Pop drops Charlie and swivels back to his base!! Pop looking to capitalize as he runs for the ropes, Charlie on wobbley legs as he rises to his feet- DROPKICK!!!! POP nails that move this time around as Charlie goes right into the turnbuckle!!! Chest pressed against the pads, Charlie trying to recover from the shock of the moves, but POP running up the turnbuckle from behind- INVERTED HURRICANA!!!! Marr goes SPLAT in the center of the ring, face first!! Marr trying to shake off the dust, and POP takes position in the corner, maybe looking to capitalize?…. Wait-
Nick Angel: TAG BY BHRIS ELITE!! HA HA!!! Bhris done tagged himself in, and POP’s stuck between confused and frustrated, and rolls outside of the ropes. Elite now entering the ring as the World Heavyweight Champion looks all too confident in himself. He’s taking position at the corner, sizing Marr up as he tries to rise…. Bhris Runs…. BHRIS LEAPS!!!! BIONIC STO- NO!!!!! MARR ROLLED BACK- AND INSTEAD DELIVERS A VICIOUS KNEE STRIKE TO THE CHEST OF THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT BHAMPION!!!!
Nick Angel: Marr looking like he knows he’s gotta seize the moment….. Marr running past Elite, rebound off the ropes FOREARM SMASH!!!! He runs to the opposite set, rebounds- RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE OF BHRIS!!!! MARR REBOUNDS- CHARING CROS- BUT BHRIS PUSHES MARR BACK MIDAIR BEFORE THE DISCUS LARIAT CAN CONNECT!!!!! Mar Lands on his back, surprised as Bhris shakes his head woozily
Chris Elite: (Off Mic) Fuck Outta Here…
Kawajai: Marr rolling backwards, back onto his feet- A STIFF KNEE FROM ELITE MEETS HIS HEAD AS HE RISES BACK UP!!!! Marr rocked- Spinning Backfist from Elite!!!! Marr trying to put his hands up to block the face strikes- AND A SPINNING KICK TO THE BODY, sends Charlie Marr heaving forward!!!
(Daryl Kinkade on the outside starts to stomp his feet, getting the crowd hyped).
Nick Angel: Bhris Spinnin’, SPINNING HEEL KICK!!!! NO!!! Charlie catches it!!!- Bhris rolls forward trying to break the hold, but Marr pulls back, causing Bhris to land flat on his ass- AND LOCKS IN A CHOKEHOLD!!!! A CHOKEHOLD!!!! Vicious of his battles with submission specialists, Bhris fights the lock as he reaches out to the ring center- Bhris now countering it with strikes, punching up at the face of Marr and FINALLY Marr breaks the hold, as Bhris sends him towards his the Marrkade corner with a short Armdrag!!!
Kawajai: Marrkade? :wtf:
Nick Angel: Bhris favoring his throat, goes over to Pop to tag the National Elite Champion i- BUT POP PULLS HIS HANDS BACK FROM THE ROPES!!
Chris Elite: (Off Mic) (Gives a :russwtf: look to POP)
(Charlie Marr slowly crawls to Daryl, the crowd getting more and more heated as he nears the corner)
Prince of Phenomenal: (Off Mic) (Shrugs) What?…. You’re the World Champ, Champ Champ…. Go Get ‘Em (POP crosses his arms with a smug grin).
Nick Angel: Play stupid games with your partners…. Expect stupid results-
Kawajai: CHARLIE MAKES THE TAG!!!! KINKADE HAULS ASS INTO THE RING!!!! Bhris tries to get up- MISSILE DROP KICK!!!!! Bhris is rocked, and still gassed from that chokehold!!! He forces himself off the turnbuckle, and runs at Kinkade!!! Clothesline- Kinkade ducks, SPINNING HEEL KICK!!! To the back of the head of Bhris, Kinkade with the short rebound- BICYCLE KICK!!!
Nick Angel: Elite is dropped, Kinkade soaking in the aura of the crowd as he hurries over to his own corner, he’s sizing up the champ-
Kawajai: A lot of sizing up in this match
Nick Angel: KINKADE RUNS!!!!!! AAAAAFTTTEEER MIGHTNIGHT!!!!! SHINING WIZA- ELITE COUNTERS WITH A KNEE!!!! A KNEE STRIKE SENDING KINKADE STUMBLING UP TO HIS FEET- ELITE CUTTER!!!! ELITE CUTTER!!!!! A JUMPING CUTTER WIPES OUT THE YOUNG PROSPECT!!!!
(Elite stands, breathing heavily, and holds his arms out to POP on the outside, who simply claps his hands).
Chris Elite: (Off Mic) HOW’S THAT? I’M THE WORLD CHAMP!!!
Prince of Phenomenal: (Off Mic) Heh, Heh- Yes you are!! (Golf Claps).
Chris Elite: (Off Mic) Bozo Soccer mom hair ass-
Kawajai: ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!!! ROUNDHOUSE KICK KNOCKS THE SENSE OF OUT ELITE AS HE TURNS AROUND!!!! KINKADE LOCKS IN THE FRONT FACELOCK!!!…
Nick Angel: WORKING!!! OUT!!! THE!!! KINKS!!!!! D-DARYL COVERS THE WORLD CHAMP!!!
Nick Ange: Wait…
Kawajai: No wa-
Kawajai: NO FREAKING WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nick Angel: THEY DID IT!!!! OH MY GOD!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!).
(‘What a shame – To Close Too Touch’ plays as a tired Daryl Kinkade rises to his feet as the referee lifts his hand, a shocked Charlie Marr on the outside).
Kawajai: THEY DID IT!!!! MARRKADE PINNED THE WORLD CHAMP!!!! MARRKADE BEAT THE TOP CHAMPS OF THE COMPANY!!!!
Nick Angel: I- I don’t know how they did it, but it seems by capitalizing on the flaws and unfocused approach of the champions, Daryl Kinkade and Charlie Marr just earned themselves one HELL of a match to add to bragging rights. For all that talk from POP last week about his Crossfire opponents not being on the same page, it seems as if maybe he should’ve practiced what he preached! MarrKade is fine! Luckily for POP he won’t need to rely on anyone but himself next time he faces off against these two men… hopefully it’s enough.
Kawajai: Two boys from NEO, now here on Voltage beating top champions. They started from the gutter, and now here they are, on the brand that TRULY builds the top brass of the company- We’ll be back with more top quality action on Voltage!!
(The camera fades out as Charlie Marr and Daryl Kinkade walk out the ramp laughing at a rueful Chris Elite who is arguing with Prince of Phenomenal)
(Rex McAllister can be seen backstage looking at a monitor clapping and laughing at the sight of his proteges defeating his rival.)
(A replay from earlier shows of Andy Dominguez discovering Matt Daniels letting Devan Dubian into the arena last week as well as the confrontation between LC and Dub.)
(The camera pans over to the arena where we see the ring Announcer standing in the middle of the ring, microphone in hand, and a smile on her face.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is your main event of the evening and is scheduled for ONE FALL!
(“Blackout” by Company Flow plays from the arena speakers as Lethal Consequences steps out, followed quickly by Jackson Blayde who wears matching outfits with his tag team partner. Andy Dominguez stands behind them, recovered from Midsummer Massacre.)
Ring Announcer: INTRODUCING FIRST! Being accompanied to the ring by Andy Dominguez! Weighing in at a combined weight of 459 POOOUNDSSS!!!!!….JACKSON BLAYDE AND LETHAL CONSEQUENCES, THEEEE EEEEENNNNTTEEEERRPPRRIIISSEEE!!!!
Angel: Here comes The Enterprise making their TAG TEAM DEBUT! For weeks LC has been building up this stable with CFO Andy Dominguez, and after Midsummer Massacre we know that this is a group that is primed and ready to make a statement on the Voltage Brand, and they’ll do that tonight as they go up against some of Voltage’s most prominent competitors…..
(“The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by The Foo Fighters then plays as Devan Dubian walks out wearing a sleeveless jacket carrying his emblem on it, as he walks down to the ring with focus and determination. The song then fades out before “Still Unbroken” by Lynyrd Skynyrd plays, to which then Rex McAllister steps out onto the entranceway, nodding at his partner before staring down The Enterprise.)
Ring Announcer: AND THEIR OPPONENTS! Weighing in at a combined weight of 468 POOUNDSSS!!!!!…….DEEEEEVVVAAAAANNNNN DUUUUBBIIAAANN, AND REEEEXXXXX MCCCAAALLLIISTTEEERR!!!
Kawajai:…..These two men! Devan Dubian got the short end of the stick on Midsummer Massacre when he was victim to Lethal Consequences’ trickery and dirty tactics, so you can be sure he wants retribution from that loss tonight, as the feud between him and The Enterprise grows each and every week, with last week him attacking Andy Dominguez once more! While Rex, on the other hand, is a man who is looking for some much needed momentum heading into Crossfire, to ensure his spot as a main event competitor on this brand! This is going to be one hell of a fight.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Angel: And the Bell rings as we see that it’s Jackson Blayde starting off against Devan Dubian as their partners stand on the apron in their respective corners. You can see the anger behind Devan’s eyes as he stares at Andy Dominguez from the corner with contempt. He still has to be pissed after being wrongfully banned from the arena last week and unable to let out his anger, as we can see tonight he is bursting with it! OH DAMN! DEVAN DUBIAN RUNS STRAIGHT TOWARDS JACKSON BLAYDE WITH A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT THAT SENDS HIM DOWN ONTO THE MAT! DEVAN IS MAD, HE WANTS TO GET HIS REVENGE TONIGHT AND HE’S SKIPPING THE TECHNICALITIES DOING SO! Lethal Consequences attempts to reach out to his partner already but DEVAN FROM BEHIND GRABS JACKSON BY HIS HAIR! THE RAGE…..AND HE HE SLAMS HIM DOWN BY HIS HAIR! WOW! Jackson is on the mat, reeling from the shot as he attempts to stand up, running off the ropes for a DROPKICK! BUT DEVAN DOGES IT! He falls on his face as almost immediately Devan comes back with a RUNNING KNEE SMASH TO THE SIDE OF JACKSON’S HEAD! Jackson isn’t prepared at all for this as he is knocked loopy from Devan’s attack!
Kawajai: Word, Angel! Jackson is attempting to use the ropes to pull himself up but Devan is right behind him, grabbing him from behind….FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX! NO! JACKSON IS HOLDING ONTO THE ROPES, PREVENTING HIMSELF FROM BEING LAUNCHED HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING! HE THROWS A POINTED ELBOW STRAIGHT AT DEVAN’S JAW! Dubian is knocked backwards as Jackson starts fighting back, RUNNING AT HIM! ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY BLAYDE KICKING DUBIAN STRAIGHT INTO THE NEXT DIMENSION, AND IMMEDIATELY THE ROOKIE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A SPIKE DDT! A BRUTAL spike DDT jamming The Amazing Emir’s head into the ring, the ring shaking as you can see both partners and Dominguez rallying on their allies to fight! Jackson leaps onto Devan for the pin, and maybe for the win?! His shoulders are down!
Angel: A one count but not enough to suffice for a victory as Devan shoots his arm up to kick out! Jackson stands up, expecting the match not to end there, running off the ropes…..COMING BACK WITH A GIGANTIC ELBOW DROP TO THE CHEST OF DEVAN! He drives the point of his elbow into the chest as Dubian lets out a cough, wow! I misinterpreted the situation as we can see now Jackson is dominanting the match, slowly growing confident in his ability to win! He spreads his arms wide as LC claps and the crowd boos ruthlessly, much to his chagrin! He turns his attention to Dubian who sits in the corner, walking over to him……AS HE BEGINS TO CHOKE THE ABSOLUTE LIFE OUT OF DEVAN DUBIAN! HIS FOOT IS AGAINST HIS NECK, DRIVING IT AND THAT IS AN ILLEGAL MOVE AND THE REFEREE MUST BREAK IT UP! He is not having it tonight as he pulls Jackson away before the Five count completes, as he puts his arm up acting as if he was innocent! That move’s not innocent, it’s illegal and right now it’s causing a whole world of pain for Dubian!
Kawajai:The referee scolding Jackson, not like he cares, as he pushes the referee away looking to attack Devan again – A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT OUT OF NOWHERE, CATCHING BLAYDE OFF GUARD! Devan back to full health as he walks towards Jackson once more with ANOTHER EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! NOW HE FIRES WITH A BARRAGE OF EUROPEAN UPPERCUTS, PUTTING HIS OPPONENT ON SPAGHETTI LEGS! Jackson is taken completely out of his game as he is barely standing in the center of the ring, AND DEVAN GRABS HIM BY THE NECK! INVERTED HEADLOCK BACKBREAKER! NO! JACKSON TURNS AND PUSHES DEVAN AWAY INTO THE ROPES! Jackson saves himself – OH DAMN! PENDULUM LARIAT BY DEVAN AS HE USES THE ROPES TO COME RIGHT BACK AND TURN JACKSON INSIDE OUT! A gigantic pendulum clothesline from hell nearly DECAPITATING Blayde! Blayde is down on the floor as Devan stares at him, a sick smile forming on his face, grabbing LC’s protege and showing it to him! He’s taunting LC, pointing towards the barely conscious Blayde, laughing in his face!
Angel: Mind games are on point tonight from Devan – WAIT! JACKSON BLAYDE GRABS DEVAN AND SHIFTS POSITION! AND LETHAL CONSEQUENCES GRABS DEVAN BY HIS ARMS, TRAPPING HIM FROM THE ROPES! I’M NOT SURE HE CAN DO THAT, BUT IT’S DIRTY AND SMART! AND NOW JACKSON IS BEATING THE LIVING HELL OUT OF DEVAN WITH SOME HARD RIGHTS AND KICKS TO THE CHEST! HE’S STOMPING A MUDHOLE INTO DEVAN AS LC TRAPS HIS ARMS AND KEEPS HIM UP FROM THE APRON! And now the referee is attempting to pull Jackson away once more from beating Devan to the point of no return! He steps back, BUT IMMEDIATELY GRABS DEVAN BY HIS HEAD! FRACTURE DDT! FRACTURE DDT CONNECTS, THE JUMPING DDT SMASHING DEVAN’S HEAD INTO THE MAT AS HE SHOOTS UP FROM THE PAIN! WILL THIS BE THE GOLDEN TICKET TO VICTORY?! HE PINS DEVAN AGAIN!
Kawajai: AND HE IS NOT DONE! DEVAN KICKS OUT, HE IS STILL IN THIS THING! HE IS STILL ALIVE AS JACKSON HAS HIS HEAD IN HIS HANDS, COMPLETELY STUNNED BY WHAT HE’S SEEN! He did not expect Devan to kick out right then and there, but he should’ve! He has gone through worse in his career and right now, Jackson needs to focus on securing the win! He is stressed out, wondering why he isn’t out – AND LC TAGS HIMSELF IN! HE TABS HIMSELF INTO THE MATCH, AS JACKSON LOOKS SURPRISED! But he’s not mad, he knows that right now he needs his de-facto “leader” to take the lead in this match! Now we’re seeing LC vs Dub again, a callback to a few weeks ago during Midsummer Massacre…..AND LC IS SIGNALLING FOR THE END! He is in this match as he puts his thumb against his throat, marking for the end of the match as Rex looks on, hopeless!
Angel: HERE HE COMES! AAAAACIIIIDS REEIIGGGNNNN!!!!!! WAIT! NO! DEVAN LIFTS LC UP AND SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH THE OLYMPIC SLAM! THERE IT IS! IN HONOR OF HIS FORMER MENTOR STARRSTAN, THE MOVE SAVING HIMSELF BEFORE HE CAN BE FINISHED OFF FOR GOOD! AND NOW BOTH MEN ARE DOWN! THEY ARE DOWN AND OUT, BUT DUB NEEDS TO STAND! COME ONNNN!!! The crowd is rallying behind Dubian and Rex as you can see his partner in the corner, slamming his boot on the apron in anticipation for the tag! And on the other side, Dominguez is pushing for LC to stand and get back onto his feet! WHO WILL MAKE IT FIRST?! DUBIAN RUNS OVER TO HIS CORNER, LEAPING UP AND USING THAT LAST BIT OF ADRENALINE TO TAG IN REX MCALLISTER! AND THE REX MASTER IS IN THE MATCH! HOLY SHIT! LC STANDS UP ON HIS FEET BUT REX IS FINALLY IN THIS MATCH AS HE IMMEDIATELY RUNS TOWARDS HIS OPPONENT! JUMPING KNEE SMASH RIGHT INTO THE SIDE OF HIS JAW! THEN HE TURNS AROUND DELIVERING A DISCUS ELBOW TO JACKSON BLAYDE, KNOCKING HIM OFF THE APRON! HOT DAMN! Rex McAllister can feel the energy tonight as he lets out a battle cry which the crowd responds to eagerly! THIS IS THE MAIN EVENT!
Kawajai: Devan is exhausted on the outside, completely wiped out, so is Jackson, and now it’s the two freshest men going against each other in a battle of ability, agility, and strength! Rex picks up Lethal Consequences off the mat by his waist, BEFORE SENDING HIM BACK DOWN WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT HE DOESN’T LET GO OF THE HOLD, DESPITE COMPLETELY FOLDING LC IN HALF! He lifts him up again for a SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX TO BOOT! WILL HE GO FOR A THIRD ONE?! Seems like it as he stands up once more, that waistlock in tight, AS HE LIFTS HIM FOR THE THIRD GERMAN – NO! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES REVERSES IT BY TURNING IT INTO A STUNNER, AS REX IS SENT BACK! LC saving himself as he stands up AND BEGINS HIS ASSAULT WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK, AND REX FALLS INTO THE CORNER! HE’S TRAPPED AS LC BEGINS TO ATTACK HIM MULTIPLE TIMES WITH KNIFE-EDGED CHOPS AND STOMPS TO HIS STERNUM, WOW! LC not giving McAllister any moment to breathe, he knows the moment he does it’ll be game over for him, as he runs off to the opposite corner…..coming back FOR A STEP-UP ENZIGURI! BUT REX CATCHES THE LEG! WHAT?! HE CATCHES THE LEG AND BRINGS LC’S BODY CLOSER TO HIM……BEFORE THROWING HIM ITO THE CORNER WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX, FOLDING HIM IN THE CORNER! DAMN!
Angel: REX WITH A MASTERFUL REVERSAL AS HE STANDS UP, WIPING AWAY THE SWEAT OFF HIS CHEST! McAllister with some quick thinking there, but he’s not done as he keeps his energy and more by moving towards LC…… AND LEAPS FOR A JUMPING CORNER CLOTHESLINE, KNOCKING THE WIND OUT OF LC’S SAILS! LC falls onto the mat as Rex is about to get ready for the end! He grabs LC by the leg as he is on the mat AND THEN HIS CHIN! OH MY GOD! THE REX LOCK IS LOCKED IN! THE STF IS LOCKED IN TIGHT AS HE BEGINS PULLING AWAY AT THE FACE OF LETHAL CONSEQUENCES, CAUSING MORE AND MORE PAIN WITH EAH SECOND! LC’S EYES LIGHT UP AS HE STARTS TO SCREAM IN AGONY FROM THE HOLD, QUICKLY TRYING TO CRAWL TOWARDS THE ROPES! WILL HE MAKE IT?!……NO! REX STANDS UP AND DRAGS LC AWAY FROM THE ROPES IN THE CENTER OF THE RING AS HE IS UNABLE TO REACH THEM! BUT WAIT! JACKSON BLAYDE! JACKSON BLAYDE FROM BEHIND GRABS REX BY HIS ARM! HOLY – 901 KNEE! 901 KNEE CONNECTS FROM JACKSON AS THE RIPCORD KNEE SLAMS INTO THE JAW OF MCALLISTER, SAVING HIS TAG TEAM PARTNET RIGHT THEN AND THERE!
Kawajai: IF IT WASN’T FOR JACKSON, I THINK WE MIGHT HAVE SEEN THE END FOR THE ENTERPRISE HERE TONIGHT! WHAT A MATCH THIS HAS BEEN! Rex is droopy and dazed in the ring, as LC quickly crawls into his corner, holding onto his chin in pain! JACKSON ISN’T EVEN THE LEGAL MAN IN THIS MATCH, BUT IT’S COMPLETE CHAOS IN THE RING AS JACKSON LOOKS TO FINISH OFF REX! WAIT! Jackson turns around, noticing something – DEVAN DUBIAN! DEVAN DUBIAN RECOVERS AS HE LEAPS ONTO BLAYDE! BLEEDING EDGE! BLEEDING EDGE! OH MY GOD! THE JUMPING CUTTER SLAMMING HIS FACE ONTO THE MAT, AND NOW THE REFEREE CAN’T KEEP TRACK! WOW! YET ANOTHER PARTNER RUSHING IN FOR THE SAVE, AND THIS TIME I THINK HE’S TAKEN JACKSON OUT OF THIS MATCH FOR GOOD! He rolls out as you can see the deep look of concern on the face of Andy Dominguez on the outside, talking to LC who is trying to make sense of this – BUT REX LIFTS HIM UP! REX GRABS LC BY HIS HEAD, LOOKS TOWARDS DEVAN DUBIAN AND NODS! WHAT IS HE PLANNING HERE?! HE RUNS AND JUMPS ONTO THE ROPES, AND HE CONNECTS! THE REX EFFECT CONNECTS, SLAMMING LC DOWN ONTO THE MAT BY HIS HEAD, AS HE SHOOTS UP – AND OH MY GOD!
Angel: BLEEDING EDGE BY DEVAN DUBIAN IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE REX EFFECT! WHAT A COMBINATION MANEUVER, A DOUBLE FINISHER THAY HAS COMPLETELY WIPED OUT WHATEVER LC HAD PLANNED! AND ALL DOMINGUEZ CAN DO IS WATCH IN HORROR AS REX LEAPS ONTO LETHAL CONSEQUENCES FOR THE WIN! OH MY GOD! DEVAN NODS HIS HEAD AS HE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND THE REFEREE BEGINS TO COUNT! WILL THIS BE A LOSS?!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Still Unbroken” by Lynyrd Skynyrd blasts from the speakers to loud applause from the crowd, as Rex stands up with his hands raised. Devan joins him, the two celebrating over the downed bodies of Jackson Blayde and Lethal Consequences and a devastated Andy Dominguez.)
Ring Announcer: AND HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS…….DEVAN DUBIAN, AND REEEXXXX MCCCAAALLIISTTEEERRRR!!!!
Kawajai: WHAT A MATCH! THE TWISTS, THE TURNS, BUT IN THE END IT PROVED TO BE TOO MUCH FOR THE TEAM OF JACKSON BLAYDE AND LETHAL CONSEQUENCES! I’m sure these two men must feel vindication, especially after being dealt losses from these two, and especially Devan Dubian who has waited for a moment like this with baited breath since the beginning of this feud!
Angel: Agreed! This was a stellar main event match, and each men got their chance to shine! Lethal Consequences and Blayde were tricky with the way they teamed and used their tag team moves to keep Devan out for a long while, but after Rex was placed in the match it wasn’t too long before they had the upper hand! Blayde caught him off-guard but then almost immediately after, Devan caught HIM off-guard! I think it’s safe to say these two men will be heading home tonight being able to rest easy, with Rex gaining this after the dirty victory from Jackson last week, and Devan the same style of victory from LC and trickery by Dominguez! Wow!
