(EAW intro plays.)
(Voltage fades into a highlight video that recaps last week’s absolute mess of an episode. The drama with the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum being locked, and the state itself banning Voltage from profiting is highlighted. The show’s location being moved to the beach across the street is shown, and the crazy work the ring crew and staffers had to do in order to get it set up for television in such a short amount of time. Voltage goes on as planned and Talib Bari hosts another episode of ‘Cloth Talk.’ Veena Adams absolutely runs down Team Voltage, but Andrea Valentine, Ms. Extreme, and Raven Roberts don’t take kindly to her words. They come out, clap back, and Veena of course doesn’t stay in the ring with them. As Veena continues to rant about them, Consuela comes out and dumps an entire container of baked beans on Veena, causing Veena to have a breakdown. #QueensOnly stand tall to end ‘Cloth Talk’, thus cementing themselves as even more of a unified front than ever before. Cepheus St. Claire and Shortfuse PAKA would somehow work together flawlessly to win a tag team match against Damian Butler and Blade. They would qualify for the Divide & Conquer match at Territorial Invasion as a result of that win, but Blade and Damian would get into it after the match! The Woogieman would be given the PETA Representative of the Month award by PETA President, Rachelle Owen. Woogie would be overjoyed at this honor, however one of the nasty church protestors that tried to get Voltage cancelled would interrupt the happy celebration. Woogie would challenge the protestor to a Biloxi Beach Match and would emerge victorious, much to the delight of the crowd! Popular newcomer, Sarah Price, would pick up her first win in EAW against Shawn Sturgis, and later on go to Captain Charisma and ask for a chance to compete at Territorial Invasion. Captain Charisma would place her inside the Divide & Conquer match, much to Sarah’s delight! Two more Divide & Conquer participants, Aniyah Mitchell and Serena Riot, would put on a classic of a match. The two women would give each other everything they had before Aniyah would survive and emerge victorious over Serena. The fuckery during the match between Rex McAllister and Jesse Barlow is showcased. Charlie Marr was probably the worst referee in Voltage’s history, and he would eventually cost Rex the win against Jesse after taking Rex out with his finisher! Dr. Bethany Blue would make a final plea to Terry to change his life and let her help him get healthy. She would make it personal by dragging Terry’s ex-wife, Trinity Jan, into the picture, and mention his kids several times over. The main event would be the final of the War Games preview matches. Andrea Valentine, Darkane, and Chris Elite would battle tooth and nail to win the match, but in the end, it would be Darkane who would emerge victorious on behalf of Dynasty by pinning Chris Elite.)
(The highlight video fades out and cuts to inside the arena. Instead of Voltage’s theme song playing, “Let It Go” by A$AP Ferg is blasting throughout the building. The fans aren’t really sure how to react. The typical reaction to Mr. DEDEDE is to boo the fuck out of him, but tonight he is being accompanied by HRDO and it’s clear they’re here on business. Mr. DEDEDE does not have the Answers World Championship in his possession, and he is dressed in the Gawdzilla Pro© Steel Blue tracksuit. HRDO is dressed in a designer suit.)
James Peters: War Eagle and Roll Tide! Welcome everyone to Sunday Night Voltage live from Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama! As you can already see, we are in an actual building this week, and the Chairman and Vice President are on their way to the ring!
Rich Russillo: We’re about to get canned, I just know it. After what happened last week, and all the protestors, and literally everything else going on right now with Voltage, we’ve become to much of a liability!
James Peters: :lupe: Well, I don’t want to jump to conclusions and we’re not going to act like Voltage hasn’t gotten EAW banned from places before. We still aren’t allowed in the country of Liechtenstein thanks to Osamu Arcichida and Daryl Kinkade.
Rich Russillo: I know we are banned from the Marshall Islands too, I believe.
James Peters: That was Xander Payne’s fault.
(Mr. DEDEDE and HRDO climb into the ring, and Bella Braxton passes them both microphones. Mr. DEDEDE’s music fades out, and the crowd quiets down. They seem to be just as anxious as everyone else is right now.)
Mr. DEDEDE: I thought I made myself perfectly clear a couple of weeks ago when I told Matt Daniels and my idiot of a niece they needed to get their acts together and get this show back on track. Instead they both made the decision to continue to defy me, book the type of matches they were told to stay away from, and just generally be a collective pain in my ass. Insubordination is something that I do not tolerate and to top it all off, last week’s piece of shit episode of Voltage cost the company money. To take every fucking bit of profit a show makes and RETURN it to the city that kept you from making the money in the first place is the absolute most assinine thing I have ever heard of, and quite frankly, I’m disgusted. I have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to losing money. When EAW loses money, I lose money, and I invest way too much time into this shit to have the absolute idiocy of two people cost me profit.
HRDO: What happened last week with this show was unfortunate, and Mr. DEDEDE, the board of directors, and myself recognize that if we continue to allow Voltage to continue down this particular road, we might not be able to salvage it.
Mr. DEDEDE: Quite frankly, I don’t give a damn about attempting to salvage it at this point. I have absolutely no problem pulling the plug on this show and sending it straight to hell just like I did Empire earlier this year. However, the board of directors had other ideas.
(HRDO gives Mr. DEDEDE a weary smile.)
HRDO: Cooler heads prevailed in that meeting, but one thing we all agreed on is that something has to change. So effective immediately, Matt Daniels and Veena Adams are suspended indefinitely.
(The crowd gasps, and even Rich and James seem a little startled. The camera cuts to their faces, and both of them are staring at one another in shock, and it’s pretty evident no one had any idea this was going to happen.)
Mr. DEDEDE: For the next few weeks, HRDO and myself will personally be overseeing Voltage and running the program, and WHEN slash IF the both of us decide that we want to give Matt and Veena another chance, their decisions will be heavily monitored and have to go through me before they ever even come to fruition on Voltage. The bullshit that has plagued this program since January is going to stop.
HRDO: With Territorial Invasion less than a week away, we won’t be changing any of the matches. Terry Chambers will still defend the Interwire Championship against Dr. Bethany Blue as per the unique opportunity she earned back at Bloodsport. Rex McAllister will still get the chance to dethrone Charlie Marr for the EAW World Championship. All other Voltage Elitists competing in matches will remain in place as well. We don’t want to take any opportunities away from anyone, and going forward the opportunities to be earned that are going to be given to the Voltage roster will be presented to the Elitists for the right reasons. There will be no more back and forth between two feuding commissioners, and no more petty, underhanded decision making or favoritism.
(Mr. DEDEDE goes to speak, but that’s when “It Ain’t Safe” by Skepta begins to play. The crowd knows exactly how to react to the presence of the EAW World Champion. As soon as Charlie Marr and Jordie Ripley step through the guerilla curtain, they unleash a torrent of heavy boos. Charlie looks angry as he makes his way down the ramp, with Jordie having to practically run in her stilettos to keep up with him.)
Mr. DEDEDE: What the fuck do you want?
(Mr. DEDEDE asks that question as soon as Charlie slides into the ring and fixes him with a glare. Charlie immediately snatches the microphone from Mr. DEDEDE, which causes Jordie to look nervous and step behind Charlie. An amused little smile crosses Mr. DEDEDE’s face, while HRDO remains neutral to whatever is about to happen.)
Charlie Marr: How the fuck are you going to suspend Veena from Voltage? Now, I always knew you were a stupid piece of shit, but to suspend the one person who actually has the brand’s best interests at heart is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.
Mr. DEDEDE (Off Mic): What did you just say to me??
Charlie Marr: I didn’t stutter. You know damn well that Veena’s vision is exactly how Voltage should be ran. You have absolutely no respect for women and their so-called wrestling ability, except for that gaping little cunt you decided to take as a wife. Why would you do something to jeopardize the destruction of the useless whores who are determined to continue undermining authority and not know their place in the world?? We both know you don’t have any love for the Ava whores, and there are two of them on this brand! That’s part of the reason why this show sucks right now.
(HRDO decides to intervene before things get out of hand.)
HRDO: Business is business, and something you don’t really need to worry about, Marr. You have a match later on tonight against a woman in Consuela Rose Ava who is looking to beat you and send a message to everyone who underestimates her.
Charlie Marr: It’s just Consuela.
(Mr. DEDEDE snatches the microphone back from Charlie.)
Mr. DEDEDE: And you don’t have Veena here tonight to restart the match after you get embarrassed. You’re not going to have her at Territorial Invasion either when you face off against Rex McAllister. So if I were you, I’d get the hell out of this ring before I fucking drop you and you don’t make either of those matches. Worm.
(Charlie narrows his eyes at Mr. DEDEDE and his mouth forms a hard line. It’s obvious the EAW World Champion has a million and one different things he wants to say, and the look on Mr. DEDEDE’s face is just daring him. Jordie gently places her hand on Charlie’s arm and tries to get him to back away. Charlie shrugs her off, but luckily for everyone involved, HRDO steps between Charlie and Mr. DEDEDE.)
HRDO: The fact of the matter is, the tenure of Matt Daniels and Veena Adams as the Co-Commissioners of Sunday Night Voltage is done for now. As Mr. DEDEDE stated, when and if they return from suspension, they will both be kept on a short leash. This brand has always had a reputation of being the best in terms of pure wrestling and we have gotten away from that. Expect that to change in the upcoming weeks as we go back to what made Voltage the standout brand here in EAW to begin with.
Charlie Marr (Off Mic): This is complete bullshit. Voltage is my brand and I will be damned if my agenda changes. I’m the EAW World Champion and whatever the fuck I want on MY show is exactly what’s going to go down, and there’s not a damn thing either of you can do about that. As long as I have this championship, it’s MY word that is law around here. I’m Main Event Marr… Big Match Charlie, the premiere champion here in EAW.
Mr. DEDEDE: :mjgrin:
(Charlie takes the EAW World Championship and holds it up in front of Mr. DEDEDE and HRDO. “It Ain’t Safe” begins to play again and Jordie has to use all her strength to pull Charlie away from the two executives. He finally exits the ring and Voltage fades into a preview for Territorial Invasion.)
(A promotional ad for Territorial Invasion airs, showcasing the upcoming War Games match between the three teams representing their brands. See Serena Bennett, Darkane, and TLA fly the Dynasty flag and attempt to make it two in a row for Dynasty as they take on the Showdown team of Jamie O’Hara, Chris Elite, and Ahren Fournier and the Voltage team of Andrea Valentine, Ms. Extreme, and Raven Roberts. Territorial Invasion is live from Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Alabama on September 22nd, 2019. Catch it on Free-Per-View!)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts to Bella, who of course is in the middle of the ring.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME… KAI ZOLOMON!!!!
(The lights in the arena dim ever so slightly as “Devil Trigger” by Casey Edwards hits. Kai Zolomon makes his way down the ramp in an all-black Armani suit with a red tie, holding his Ultimate Opportunity briefcase that he won at Bloodsport. He’s also sporting an expensive pair of shades. The crowd goes wild at the sight of Kai, cheering him loudly as he enters the ring. Bella passes him the microphone before taking her leave, leaving Kai alone in the ring. The New Breed Championship competitor clutches his briefcase tightly and scans the crowd with a smile on his face. Eventually, Kai takes off his shades, placing them in his breast pocket of his suit.)
Crowd: KAI! KAI! KAI!
Kai Zolomon: 118 days. That’s a profound number right there. See, in any other case, it would just be that, a number. Three digits that no one would normally give a shit about. Nothing of any special merit or greatness. But you see, I have taken a number and turned it into something more, something beyond merely units and statistics. I’ve given it meaning. Purpose. Definition. It took me 118 days since I stepped foot in this company to be where I am today. Some people….they rot away entire years, hell, some their whole careers to get to this spot. To be where I am. I’ll be honest, I feel lucky. But, we all know it wasn’t luck. Luck can only get you so far, and I have not come this far merely on chance and probabilities. Oh no no no, I stand before you, before EAW, based on my own merits and my own merits ALONE! I was never handed anything on a silver platter, nor did I have to kiss someone’s ass to reach where I am right now. All I had to do on my part, was prove day in and day out that I am one of the greatest wrestlers and performers to step through those curtains and steal the show. What I hold in my hands is not simply an opportunity, but a mark, a symbol of what happens when you are simply head and shoulders above competition here in this company.
(The crowd cheers as they seem to with his sentiment. Kai nods as he continues.
Kai Zolomon: Some people call me cocky. I get that a lot. But there’s a difference between being cocky, and knowing your worth. I know my worth. Knew it the moment I stepped here that I would have to struggle, I would have to bleed, bust my ass and have my back against the wall. But in the end? In the end I would prevail. I would reach a point where anyone in the back would be foolish to discredit me, to overlook me, to underestimate me. You know, people can label me whatever the hell they please to do so. Call me emo, edgy or whatever term you gave to your high-school bullies. The truth is all those terms are thrown at me for a reason, which being, I am simply better than my opposition. They think they can try to get under my skin and inside my head. Mind games they call it. I call it child’s play. A waste of time. A waste because while they stand back lagging behind their careers, I stand in the forefront. I am paving a way for future pro wrestlers to look back into my career and go, ‘damn, I wish I could be like him someday.’ And even if they don’t want to admit it, it’s the truth. Everyone in the back knows I’m just as good as I say I am, and even if they will refuse to acknowledge that fact, or worse, still act like I’m some sort of novice at this, well, they’ve got another thing coming.
Kai Zolomon: Ever since the news broke that I would be taking on Felix and Archimedes for the New Breed title, I’ve been on overdrive. I’ve put my money where my mouth is and I’ve taken on every challenge as a legitimate threat. In the past two weeks, I layed out GOATS and would-be future stars alike. I won’t ramble on about what I’ve done. That’s in the past and if you want, go look back at it in your own time. What I will talk about, and my sole purpose for being out here tonight, is to send a little parting gift of a message to my two beloved opponents at Territorial Invasion.
Kai Zolomon: Felix Hartley and Archimedes J. Manson feel like the two most polar opposite opponents I could take on, but in reality, they are the two sides of the same coin. One is a woman who sells her body off for minimum wage, the other is a half-breed that sells brain cells for a cheap laugh. At the end of the day, they may be credible, and dare I say, tough set of Elitists to face, but if anyone is seriously going into this match thinking they are the two life forms in the ring that are going to best me at this little back and forth we have had going on…. oh boy, I can’t wait to tell you how wrong you are. Felix Hartley, you may be the hot shit, and you may be hot, but you ain’t on my level, and no, I don’t mean level as in terms of stature, but in terms of skill. Ability. Talent. While you’ve done a damn good job of stacking your talents in certain places, it seems you’ve also relied on those ‘talents’ to get you far in your wrestling career. A path that is soon to be cut short because shit… you do a pretty impressive job of always underestimating me. Well, keep doing it hon. You say I’m not worth the time because you beat the man who beat me. First off, let’s keep that loser Cepheus out of the discussion. He has become an afterthought and to be honest, I could give a rat’s ass about who you’ve taken on in the past, after all, I made Cepheus tap out on national TV, yet for some reason no one brings that up. How convenient, right? And Archimedes… just shut the hell up. You my friend are an anomaly, because you’re in a match that you don’t belong in. A spot that you were shoehorned in because… I don’t know. Hell. What DID you do to earn this spot anyways? I mean…. I… I climbed a barbed wire ladder, what did yo—OH OOHH right, you did jack shit. You won a battle royal, which believe it or not, is way, waaaaayy easier said AND done than to lay a foot on a ladder wrapped in barbed wire. Hell, my foot still hurts from kicking your ass last week. I don’t mean to come off as a mean person, trust me, I’m probably the nicest guy around, but the fact is, in a ring between you, me and Felix, you’ve been dealt the shortest end of the stick. I mean, talk about being an underdog, except for the fact where the underdog gets the storybook-ending win. That ain’t gonna be in your ending. Oops, spoilers!
Kai Zolomon: I guess…what I’m trying to say is that, it took a lot of balls for Felix and Manson to roam around MY brand, the brand of Voltage like a bunch of uninvited guests from Dynasty and Showdown walking around acting like they’re the big shots of this place. Well, fuck that. At Territorial Invasion, I make it very well known that there’s only one territory where a title like the new breed can rest; Voltage. No matter what anyone says or claims, I am the future of this business. Unlike Archimedes who can’t climb up a one-way escalator to the top and Felix, who’s been generally a poor representative of a title deemed ‘new breed’, when in reality the bitch just hogs the title because no one took her on a real ride yet, I actually consider my chances of walking out the victor to be quite high. Because at the end of the day, I give a damn. I’ve sacrificed my health, both physical and mental, to get this far. This briefcase I hold in my hands, it’s a burden, because I look at it each day and I know that to make my Bloodsport achievement worthwhile I will HAVE to beat you two. And you know what?
(Kai places his briefcase in the middle of the ring.)
Kai Zolomon: I will. Out with the old, in with the new. New Breed.
(Kai puts on his shades and exits the ring, as “Devil Trigger” blasts around the arena. The roaring of fans almost drown out the music as they rally behind their brand hero. The final shot of the ultimate opportunity briefcase is shown in the center of the ring as Voltage fades to commercial.)
(Commercial break for McDonalds featuring the buy one, get one for a dollar special deal they have going on right now. Provencal is seen pulling up to the drive-thru with all of his 21 children packed into the refurbished Jeep he won back at Operation: Doomsday. It’s a very tight fit. Nevertheless, the French Elitist orders Filet-O-Fish sandwiches for everyone! McDonalds, they’re loving it.)
(Voltage returns from break, and everyone is ready for the first match of the evening! Bella steps forward and begins to speak.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
(‘Land of the Innocent’ by The Feathers begins to play, as Sarah Price enters and waves to the crowd.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM LONDON, ENGLAND… WEIGHING IN AT 110 POUNDS… PLEASE WELCOME, SARAH PRICE!
Rich Russillo: We’ve seen a lot from this woman so far, but this is one of her toughest challenges yet, I’m not sure if she can overcome this obstacle.
(Price enters the ring and smiles at the crowd as they cheer her on.)
(‘Country’ by Upchruch plays Zak Simmonsonto the stage throughout a chorus of boos.)
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT… FROM LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY… WEIGHING IN AT 245 POUNDS… PLEASE WELCOME ZAK SIMMONS!
Rich Russillo: Zak is making his debut here tonight on Voltage. I’m curious to see what he brings to the table for this match.
James Peters: Sarah’s going to be a tough challenge for him, but I know Zak is definitely going to be looking for a ‘W’ here tonight.
(Zak enters the ring with a smug expression, ready to fight. The timekeeper rings the bell.)
(DING, DING, DING!)
James Peters: HERE WE GO! Price and Simmons now immediately locking up, bodying and vying for position. Zak Simmons easily powers Sarah Price into the turnbuckles, viciously unloading punches and forearms onto The Guardian Angel, Price weathers the early storm of Simmons and fights her way out of the corner. Price off the ropes now…RUNNING HURRICANRANA! What a move from price!
Rich Russillo: She’s held her own so far against the far bigger Simmons, but she needs to capitalize on it.
James Peters: She looks like she’s about to, perhaps looking for a big move to the outside! PRICE LAUNCHES HERSELF TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A SUICDE D- SHE’S BEEN CAUGHT…PUMPHANDLE SLAM ON THE FLOOR FROM SIMMONS!!
(Crowd rings out with boos as they see the smug expression on Simmons face.)
Rich Russillo: JESUS FUCKING CHRIST JAMES, THAT THUD ECHOED THROUGHTOUT THIS JAM PACKED ARENA!! We discussed the size advantage of Simmons earlier and it has already made a massive impact in this match. Simmons back up to his feet now, rolls Price back into the ring, he goes in for the cover…Price rolls out the other side of the ring, avoiding a pinning predicament, great move on Sarah’s part.
James Peters: Simmons exits the ring, methodically stalking Price…HE GOES FOR THE LARIAT…PRICE AVOIDS IT AND COMES BACK WITH A DROP KICK, LAUNCHING ZAK SIMMONS INTO THE BARRICADE!!! THAT MOVE COULD HAVE JUST CHANGED THE MATCH DRASTICALLY IN FAVOR OF SARAH PRICE!
Rich Russillo: It most certainly has, Sarah Price not wasting any time, trying to take advantage of this momentum as she rolls Simmons back into the ring. She ascends the ropes now…could be looking for the ‘Happy Ending’ Moonsault! SHE IS, HERE SHE GO- Simmons clips her legs, dropping her on the top turnbuckle! Simmons scales the ropes now, his feet firmly planted on the second rope…he scoops her up…OH NO, HE’S GONNA END IT HERE…BODY SLAM OF THE TOP ROPE!!! A RING RATTLING MOVE FROM SIMMONS, HE GOES INTO THE COVER…
James Peters: KICK OUT FROM PRICE! PRICE ESCAPED THAT DEVASTATING DROP, FUCKING HOW?!?!?! The perseverance and heart we see from this Woman every week is incredible!!
(Crowd in disbelief, begins to chant, “HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!”
Rich Russillo: James, honestly? Do you really think all that heart is enough to beat a ruthless animal like Simmons? Price needs to realize that sometimes, you have to leave your pride in the back and channel that cutthroat nature.
James Peters: Simmons with a disgusted expression on his face, picks her up again, loading her up for a brainbuster…SHE’S UP..PRICE ESCAPES OUT THE BACK DOOR, GOES FOR A JUMPING KNEE..BUT ZAK AVOIDS..SIMMONS NOW OFF THE ROPES WITH AN ATTEMPT AT A LARIAT…PRICE COUNTERS AGAIN INTO A FLOAT OVER NECKBREAKER!! ZACK POPS RIGHT BACK UP, HOW THE FUCK IS SIMMONS UP…HE NAILS A SPINEBUSTER ON SARAH, DIRIVNG HER INTO THE CANVAS!!!
Rich Russillo: HOLY HELLLLL!!! WHAT A SEQUENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO WARRIORS! BUT NO ONE CAN COVER, THEY’VE BEEN BRUTALIZED AND APPEAR LIFELESS! BOTH COMPETITORS SLOWLY RISE TO THEIR FEET..FACE TO FACE..FIST TO FIST, ENGAGING IN AN ALL OUT BRAWL!! THIS IS A HOCKEY FIGHT FOLKS! BOTH COMPETITORS RELEASING A BARRAGE OF STRIKES ON THE OTHER, IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL WHO’S GOT THE ADVANTAGE..
James Peters: IT APPEARS TO BE THE MACHINE ZAK SIMMONS JUST NAILED PRICE WITH SKULL SHATTERING DDT..HE COMES BACK FOR A- SALIDA DEL SOL BY PRICE! NOW ITS SARAH TRYING FOR THAT BIG SPRINGBOARD KNEE STRIKE…SHE NAILS IT, CRACKS THE JAW OF THE MACHINE!! THIS COULD BE THE END OF THE ROAD FOR ZAK SIMMONS IN THIS MATCH, AS PRICE ONCE AGAIN ASCENDS TO THE TOP ROPE…SHE HITS THE MOONSAULT PERF-NO! NO! NO! ZAK CAUGHT HER IN A GULLTIONE CHOKE, WHAT A FUCKING COUNTER!!
Rich Russillo: SARAH’S IN A LOT OF TROUBLE AT THIS POINT, SHE LOOKS TO BE FADING’..NO SHES ALIVE, DESPERATELY FIGHTING HER WAY OUT, THE LARGER SIMMONS, LIKE A CONSTRICTOR SQUEEZING THE LIFE FROM THE LUNGS OF SARAH! PRICE ESCAPES THE GRASP AND NAILS A BUKKAKE KNEE AGAIN TO THE JAW OF ZAK!!! SHE ROLLS HIM OVER FOR A COVER, THIS HAS TO BE IT!!!…
Rich & James: KICKOUT! KICKOUT!
James Peters: HOLY FUCKIN SHIT RICH! HOW DID HE KICKOUT!?!?!
Rich Russillo: I HAVE NO IDEA, HIS JAW’S THE EQUIVALENT OF SHATTERED GLASS RIGHT NOW! BOTH COMPETITORS ABSORBING AN UNREAL AMOUNT OF PUNISHMENT!
(Crowd chants “THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME! THIS AWESOME!”)
James Peters: This Voltage crowd, no matter how they feel about any competitor, always appreciate the absolute war these en and women go through for their entertainment…you love to see it. Sarah Price dragging Zak up to his feet..SIMMONS WITH A SAMOAN DROP, HE WAS PLAYING POSSUM!! THE SPINE OF PRICE ABSOLUTELY SHAKEN TO ITS CORE!!
Rich Russillo: HE KNOWS THIS IS HIS CHANCE, HIS CHANCE TO PUT AWAY SARAH PRICE…HE PICKS HER UP…DROPS HER HEAD FIRST ONTO THE CANVAS WITH A PILEDRIVER!! THIS IS THE END!! SARAH PRICE HAS LOST! ZAK SPEEDS BACK TO THE CORNER…THEN CHARGERS AT HER WITH A PUNT KICK…SARAH SOMEHOW MANAGES TO SLIP BETWEEN THE LEGS OF SIMMONS, THEY CHARGE AT EACH OTHER WITH A DOUBLE CROSSBODY!! BOTH PRICE AND SIMMONS ARE DOWN AGAIN!
James Peters: I don’t see any clear winner in this bout at this point, both are so evenly matched, it’ll take something absolutely devastating to end this battle. For Price, the double rotation ‘Happy Ending’, for Simmons, the Super nite nite bomb’ can end any given match.
(Bboth competitors rise up to their feet. Sarah Price with a gassed look on her face, Zak Simmons with a cocky expression.)
Zak Simmons (Off Mic): You’ll never put me down you over enthusiastic bitch!
James Peters: Oh my god, how disrespectful, SARAH NOW POUNDING HIM DOWN, GIVING HIM THE ASSKICKING HE DESEVERES! She better be careful not to get herself disqualified. The referee now pulling Sarah back, she moves him out of the way- A LOW BLOW FROM ZAK… THE REF DIDN’T SEE IT!!! OH NO, ZAK SCOOPS HER UP FOR THE POWERBOMB NOW, HE’S GONNA CHEAT HIS WAY TO A WIN…
(Crowd with heavy boos as people begin to exit the arena, outraged with how this match is ending.)
Rich Russillo: Now Zak with the p-WHAT THE HELL SARAH COUNTERED AND ROLLS THROUGH…SHE STACKS HIM UP!!!
James Peters: SHE FUCKING DID IT!!!
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOURRRR WINNERRRR…SARAHHHH PRICCCEEEEE!!!!
Rich Russillo: SHE OUTSMARTED, AND OUTWRESTLED ZAK AND FOUGHT HER WAY TO WIN THIS MATCH!! THAT’S A HUGE MOMENTUM GAINER FOR HER AS WE HEAD TO TERRITORIAL INVASION NEXT WEEK!
(Sarah celebrates her win, pure joy written on her face.)
(As the celebration in the ring continues, the camera cuts to a split screen shot of the other two female Elitists in the Divide and Conquer match for Voltage. Aniyah Mitchell and Serena Riot are both watching monitors and taking note of Sarah’s celebration and excitement over her victory. Aniyah doesn’t look impressed at all, and Serena is smiling. What those reactions mean are anyone’s guess. Voltage fades to break.)
(Commercial break for the Florida Lotto and their nightly drawing of the Fantasy 5 numbers. Why are we getting commercials for the Florida lottery in Alabama? Well, gambling is illegal in Alabama, therefore if you want to win the lottery, you gotta drive to another state. Georgia works too.)
(The camera fades into the backstage area as Voltage returns from break. Shortfuse PAKA is seen walking around as Sofia Clarke walks up to him.)
Sofia Clarke: PAKA, can I have a moment of your time?
Shortfuse PAKA: Of course Sofia, what do you want?
Sofia Clarke: I’d like to ask you how you feel about the Divide and Conquer match coming up at Territorial Invasion, specifically how it’s the Battle Of The Sexes.
Shortfuse PAKA: It’s certainly going to be interesting Sofia, seeing how everyone wants something in this match. I’m going to beat the other team and more specifically my good, good friend Serena Riot!
Sofia Clarke: And why Serena Riot?
Shortfuse PAKA: I think it’s clear to see Sofia that I have some unfinished business with her. We’ve been going at it for the past few months and I want to finish it! I know our battles are far from over and I’m gonna make sure that she doesn’t come out the victor. Forget Divide and Conquer! I just want to beat the shit out of everyone! I want to fight everyone in this match!
Sofia Clarke: Do you have any kind of message to your partners at Territorial Invasion?
Shortfuse PAKA: It’s clear that they won’t go unnoticed will they? From Jake Smith, the bitch who embarrassed my brother-in-law Provencal. To Osamu Arcichida, to Cepheus St-
???: Cepheus what?
(Cepheus St. Claire walks into frame. He has a smug look on his face as he looks at Sofia Clarke and then to PAKA.)
Cepheus St. Claire: Sofia, I’m sorry you had to listen to the sounds of that poor, sad man. Tonight, I’m facing Jesse Barlow and I’m going to show everyone why I’m going to be the sole survivor of Divide and Conquer.
Shortfuse PAKA: Excuse me?
Cepheus St. Claire: You heard me. You can’t do as much as I can do, the fact you even think you’re on my level is disgusting. I carried you in our match last week, and if anything you should be thanking me for the fact that you’re even going to Territorial Invasion.
Shortfuse PAKA: You wanna prove that tough guy.
Cepheus St. Claire: Here’s the thing, I already did. I proved that I’m much better than you, and most of the people in this match, your better off trying to prove ME wrong
Shortfuse PAKA: Oh I’ll prove you wrong right now big guy.
Cepheus St. Claire: Nah, my man unlike you I got a match later in the night. Unlike you I actually have a life to live and definately DEFINATELY unlike you, I’ll be the one coming out victorious, tonight, and next week.
Shortfuse PAKA: I know I lost to you-
Cepheus St. Claire: That’s all you need to fucking say.
Shortfuse PAKA: Shut up. I’ve changed, I’m able to beat anyone at will, and at least at Territorial Invasion I’ll be able to beat you. No matter who, no matter when, I’ll beat up everyone in sight, I’m not stopping till I get what I want at Territorial Invasion. Cepheus, you aren’t gonna stop me, you may have stopped me before but who said you’re going to stop me now? You’re not lamb to the slaughter for all I know. You say I’m not able to beat you but really you’re just a pussy, scared of me.
Cepheus St. Claire: ME?!?! A PUSSY?!?!? Not in my wildest dreams would I ever be scared of you. All that matters is, I’LL BEAT YOU! And don’t be surprised, when I beat you again.
PAKA: You’re scared, you know I can prove you wrong, you know I can beat you. You just don’t want to admit that, I CAN BEAT ANYONE!
Cepheus St. Claire: I’m gonna phrase this as nice as possible, you’re a fucking joke. You’re related to a joke, you face jokes, you are a symbolic joke. Tell me, after you lost to me, after I did all the work last week and carried you on my shoulders no matter how fat you are, what makes you think you can beat me to get a championship opportunity.
Shortfuse PAKA: Because besides, I probably won’t be the one pinning you. But if I can, if the opportunity arises, don’t expect me to be nice to you.
Cepheus St. Claire: Oh please your just stating the obvious. But what don’t you not get about I already beat you?
Shortfuse PAKA: The element of surprise my friend-
Cepheus St. Claire: What kind of fortune cookie bullshit are you on? There’s no surprise when it’s clear as day you can’t win against me, I’m starting to believe you can’t win against ANYONE?!?!?!
Shortfuse PAKA: You wanna see me win by beating you? You truly are nothing after that championship loss, you’ve lost what once was and you’ve lost the elements that you need to beat me. This’ll be nothing but a cakewalk.
Cepheus St. Claire: What makes you think that? You know what I’d like to see you try and beat me at Territorial Invasion. I’d like to see you even try and beat anyone! But now if you excuse me, I have more important matters to deal with than you, I have to teach good ole’ Jesse Barlow a lesson again, your name will always come after me, don’t forget that bitch.
(The camera pans away from Cepheus and PAKA for a moment to show Jesse Barlow. He breaks into a run and goes right after Cepheus. Cepheus tries to fight back but Jesse already pushed him to the ground and has him nailed with the ground and pound. Cepheus pushes Jesse away and as he stands up PAKA nails him right in the head as he joins the fight. Both men are on a barrage of onslaught as security quickly runs in and tries to separate them. All of them are finally separated and yelling at each other as the screen fades elsewhere.)
(The shot reopens where Frankie Paradise and Korey Gaines are seen in the interview room with grins on their faces. After the camera is set in place, it’s Gaines who begins to speak, of course about the upcoming Territorial Invasion match.)
Korey Gaines: Hello EAW Universe, now, last week we were allowed an opportunity to get revenge, something me and Frankie are very grateful for. That opportunity, is going to be me and Frankie as well as some of Showdown’s guys versus Eric Havoc and the rest of his Dynasty pals. See, what those guys over at Dynasty thought they could do was selfishly come over to our show while we’re trying to entertain those in attendance, take us out all in an attempt to make a name for themselves, and expect to not face the consequences. That’s not what’s going to happen here.
Frankie Paradise: Yeah. Honestly I can’t wait to get my hands on you guys. Usually I’d try and keep my calm, and play it cool and all, but there’s no way I’m just gonna get shoved to the side by you guys just so you could have the spotlight for a few minutes. We’re going to make you guys pay for your actions, and when we’re done I’ll be glad to know that the two of us managed to shut you guys up.
Korey Gaines: Don’t forget the three from Showdown.
Frankie Paradise: Ah, right. Those three. Lance Blackfyre, Santo Muerte, and Viktor Stone. Not gonna lie man, I’m actually not very thrilled to be teaming up with those three. I’m not really trying to be rude or anything, but it’s the truth.
Korey Gaines: I’m not too thrilled either to be honest. I wanted to be able to get payback without having to rely on help from guys over on Showdown. I wanted to be able to beat those Dynasty jerks up by myself.
Frankie Paradise: Same here. Not to mention, can we really trust them? They’re on Showdown. We’re on Voltage. There’s literally an entire match based around brands fighting each other. That’s basically the theme of this entire event, yet we’re supposed to trust them?
Korey Gaines: Well, whether we like it or not they’re our partners. In all fairness, they got attacked by those Dynasty idiots too. They’re in the same shoes as us, not to mention unlike us they actually retaliated, so we’ve got to give them credit for that, don’t ya think?
Frankie Paradise: Yeah, I do respect them for that. Instead of sitting around, or begging for a chance, they went over to Dynasty and gave them a taste of their own medicine. They did what we couldn’t, so maybe it won’t be so bad. As long as we can trust Viktor, Santo, and Lance, and as long as they don’t try anything funny, I think we’ve got this one in the bag. Eric Havoc is a self centered idiot, and I’m sure half of the people on his team don’t even like the guy, yet they’re supposed to work as a team? That’s ridiculous. They’re probably gonna end up tearing each other apart before we even finish the match.
Korey Gaines: That’s right. I mean, their ideals are totally different. Eric and his T.R.U.E Initiative want to take over EAW or whatever since they seem to have this weird issue with management and all that. The other guys just want payback after Showdown attacked them. As far as I know, they couldn’t care less about Eric Havoc or his goals. They don’t care about his plans, they just want payback. Me, you, and Showdown though? We’re all on the same page. We all want one thing, and that’s get our own payback. I’ll admit, I didn’t expect to find myself in a match like this. In fact, I wasn’t even sure if I’d be on the Territorial Invasion card, but now look where we are. Fighting a group of people that are choosing to use their talent to wreak havoc, no pun intended, rather than actually try and entertain people, win matches, or literally anything else, as well as a group of people that want revenge because of what our partners have done.
Frankie Paradise: Yep. They gave us a rocky road to Territorial Invasion, but in the end that’s not gonna mean a thing. I’m ready to face Eric and his goons. I’m ready to put those guys in their place and teach them a lesson. I’m ready for Territorial Invasion, because that’s where we’re finally gonna get our revenge. Eric, you guys aren’t going to get away with what you’ve done to us. You’ve made the two of us angry, and that was the first of many mistakes you’ve made, but you’ve run out of chances now. You can’t change what you’ve said or done, now you’ve got to back up your actions. The time to fight is now, and I’m ready to fight.
Korey Gaines: Yeah, I’m glad that we’re getting this match. We went up to Captain Charisma wanting an opportunity, and we got an opportunity, of course I’m thankful for that. Sure we have to stay on guard and all since we don’t fully know whether or not Showdown is really on our side, but in the end this is exactly what we wanted. We wanted a chance to put the people at Dynasty in their place, and this is our chance. This is great.
Frankie Paradise: Yep, and don’t forget. The guys on Showdown want the same thing we do. We can’t fully trust them, nor can they really trust us, but there’s one thing we can agree on. We need to take Dynasty down at all costs. We can’t let them get away with what they’ve done the past few weeks, they need to be stopped here and now.
Korey Gaines: You’re right. Dynasty, you guys chose to invade our brands, and now it’s time for you to pay. Eric’s T.R.U.E initiative, your plans to get revenge, all of it will go up in smoke, because Voltage and Showdown are going to take you guys down. You chose to start this whole mess, and we’re going to be the ones that finish it, and this little story here is going to end with us as the winners, and all five of you down and out. Good luck at Territorial Invasion you guys, you’re going to need it.
(The two have much more serious expressions looking towards the camera, but after Gaines is done talking the two begin walking out of the camera frame, before the show slowly fades to another commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Taco Bell party packs featuring Dr. Bethany Blue scolding absolutely everyone in line who is coming into the popular fast food place! Seriously though who doesn’t want 12 delicious Taco Bell tacos in one pack?! YUM!)
(Voltage returns and the camera cuts to Bella in the middle of the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Thunderstruck” by AC/DC plays to cheers as Korey Gaines comes out to the stage. He looks pumped as he goes to the ring with a corny smile and a look of determination on his face.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Oklahoma City Oklahoma, weighing in at 170 pounds… THE AERIAL WONDER, KOREY…GAINES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Korey Gaines has a lot on his plate tonight. Not only with just fighting for the integrity of Voltage, but also facing his opponent tonight, Dr. Bethany Blue.
James Peters: No means no- I MEAN! If you’ve been keeping a close eye on social media you’ve seen the reason why this match was bound to happen someday. We’re sure in for a fight.
(Korey Gaines jumps into the ring and goes to the top rope basking in the crowd’s cheers. He hops down and gets ready as “Thunderstruck” fades out. “Bad Medicine” by Bon Jovi hits as the crowd cheers for Dr. Bethany Blue. A spotlight shines down as he turns around showing the back of her jacket, she quickly turns around and straightens her doctors jacket before making her way to the ring)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Miami Florida, weighing in at 128 pounds…DR, BETHANY…BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Dr. Bethany Blue has surely held a grudge against Korey Gaines.
James Peters: From DMs to Social Media to embarrassing Doctor visits, Gaines has done a lot to push the Doctors buttons leading up to tonight. We’ll just see how she takes it in this matchup.
(Dr. Bethany Blue enters the ring and only takes a glance at Korey before going onto the second rope and motioning with her hand to “Bring It” with a smile. She jumps down and takes off her jacket as “Bad Medicine” fades out and the bell rings)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as this highly anticipated match is underway. Korey is starting to circle around but wait? Dr. Bethany Blue is stopping him?!?!

Eric Havoc (O.S.): My moment… my regime. It’s time to burn EAW to the ground! And, Korey Gaines, your not gonna do a single thing about it. See you at Territorial Invasion…

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, Dr. Bethany Blue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: What a win pulled off by Dr. Bethany Blue in this match. We all knew Eric Havoc interfering in some way was bound to happen. And because of that Korey Gaines screwed up and lost the match.
James Peters: I wonder how that’ll incorporate into the Dynasty versus Everyone match at Territorial Invasion. I can sure say that Korey Gaines will be more pissed off than ever at the nuisance that is Eric Havoc.
(Korey Gaines is seen sitting up looking in confusion as Dr. Bethany Blue is celebrating on the outside. Suddenly the camera cuts to Terry Chambers, he holds the Interwire Title as he claps on the stage. Dr. Bethany Blue beams a radiant smile at him. Terry takes a good look at the good doctor, and makes a throat slashing gesture, which causes that smile to slip right off the doctor’s face. The two Elitists who will be facing one another for the Interwire Championship stare one another down as Voltage fades to break.)
(Commercial break for Dasani bottled water. It’s absolutely a better alternative than drinking coffee, but coffee is GOAT and you could get addicted.)
(The camera fades back into the arena. Suddenly “If Ya Smell” by Adam Massacre plays to booming cheers as The Woogieman comes out. He has a cocky look on his face as he holds both his PETA award and his Big Boogie Bhampionship. He makes his way to the ring flaunting both of them as the crowd cheers in excitement)
Rich Russillo: :blessed: Another day, another week of Woogieman.
James Peters: Indeed, I’m sure Woogie has a lot on his mind after what happened in Mississippi last week, but he’s always a surprise to behold :whew:.
(Woogieman enters the ring and places his award and titles down next to him as he holds a mic in his hand and “If Ya Smell” fades out)
The Woogieman: Last week, was a momentous and certainly interesting day. I was awarded my PETA Representative Of The Month Award but then quickly and disrespectfully interrupted by a Protester who had the audacity to even speak to the Woogieman. Therefore I challenged him to a match and won, because I am the Woogieman, and because I am nice I won for the sake of Voltage, EAW, and PETA!
The Woogieman: Thank you, but along with that match that made me wonder. I defeated him so easily, I thought he would at least bring a challenge. And I realized for the past few months I’ve had 0 competition for the Big Boogie Championship that I’ve held gloriously since the beginning of time. In order to continue cementing it’s legacy as the greatest title in all of EAW! I have decided that I’m going to be issuing an open challenge! It’s not going to be a one time thing though. I’M GOING TO DO IT EVERY WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: We are not worthy.
James Peters: What a king.
The Woogieman: So anyone, anyone at all in the back that’d like to square off with gawd himself, come out, because I challenge everyone and anyone! I’ll be waiting.
(“3 Man Band” by Jim Johnson plays as the crowd goes dead silent. Woogieman is in confusion as he doesn’t know who this is. The music keeps playing as no one comes out. Then suddenly a skinny man gets pushed out from the curtain shirtless and wearing jeans. Woogieman laughs his ass off as the dude makes his way to the ring and immediately looks ready)
The Woogieman: Son, I have to ask? What makes you think you can come out to the ring and challenge greatness that is Woogieman? Well first what’s your name.
Skinny Dude: My name is Josh Jones…
The Woogieman: Good I didn’t care in the first place. Now answer my question.
Josh Jones: Because I think I can beat you! You’re a fraud Woogieman and your bhampionship means nothing.
The Woogieman: …
Rich Russillo: …
James Peters: …
Josh Jones: :neutral_face:
The Woogieman: … Ring the bell…
(DING! DING! DING!)

Woogie basking in the glory of the crowd- WAIT JONES ROLLING HIM UP!
James Peters: KICK OUT! CLOSE CALL BY WOOGIEMAN AS JOSH JONES MIGHT’VE PULLED OFF THE DISAPPOINTMENT! Woogieman trying to get up but Jones is trying to keep him down with some punches! Woogieman is still getting up! SPINEBUSTER- Oh what a pussy! Jones rolls out of the ring as Woogie responds with a smirk as he waits for Jones to get into the ring. Jones finally rolling into the ring! WOOGIEMAN HAS HIM! SPINEBUSTER TO JONES! Woogieman going up to Jones! I THINK HE’S LOOKING FOR THE PEOPLE’S ELBOW! HE RUNS TO THE ROPES! IT CONNECTS- NO JONES MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! WOOGIEMAN IS IN SHOCK AS JONES RUNS TOWARDS HIM! CLOTHESLINE-
Rich Russillo: BUT WAIT! WOOGIEMAN IS STILL STANDING! Woogie telling him to give him his best shot! JONES GOING FOR ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE! WOOGIE IS STILL UP! WAIT! JONES TRYING TO LOW BLOW WOOGIEMAN! BUT WOOGIEMAN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! HE GRABS HIM! THE BOTTOM! THE BOTTOM CONNECTS OUT OF NOWHERE AS THE WOOGIEMAN QUICKLY GOES FOR THE PIN!!! :blessed:!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“If Ya Smell” plays as Woogieman kips up and immediately takes his title and award. He looks a bit disappointed but happy as he raises the title and award in the air to the many cheers of the crowd. He rolls out of the ring as Josh Jones is seen still knocked out as the Ref is trying his best to wake him up, to no success.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, THE WOOGIEMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: The GOAT pulled it off! He won! Think, if the Woogieman can do that to him, guess what he can do to anyone else!
James Peters: Well this isn’t the end of Woogieman’s journey as he has to do this every week, It’s sure to be long and painful for him, but let’s just see if he keeps that Big Boogie Bhampionship on him!
Rich Russillo: The fact you even question that…
(The commentary team breaks into argument as the last shot is of Woogieman looking happy high fiving fans and taking pictures to the cheers of the admirable crowd as Voltage cuts to commercial break)
(Commercial break for the SEC Network, available as part of your ESPN sports package. When your conference is so GOAT it needs its own network :wow:)
(Voltage returns from commercial and cuts to the ring. Bella smiles confidently into the camera and raises up the microphone.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR…ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(“Garou’s Theme”- One Punch Man hits as Blade walks down the ramp with a cocky and aloof look on his face as the crowd boos him.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! FROM JAPAN, WEIGHING IN AT 195 POUNDS, HE IS THE HUNTER!!!…..BLLAAADDEEE!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Wow, this guy seems intense, and I can already tell you that he will be a future GOAT because he’s from Japan. Only the best of the best come from Japan!
James Peters: :lupe: But no seriously, this man has all the tools of the trade, it’s all about how he’s going to apply it tonight against his opponent.
(“The Next Movement” by The Roots hits as Damien Butler makes his way down the ring, his arms raised as he walks inside the ring. The crowd seems to receive him positively.)
Bella Braxton: ..AND HIS OPPONENT, FROM SILICON VALLEY, CALIFORNIAAA, WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUNDS, HE IS DB3…..DAMMIEEENNN BUTTLERRR THE THIIIIRRDDD!!!!
James Peters: Now here’s a man with an IQ as big as his wrestling skills. This man here is a genius I tell you, and he’s taken on some of the best prospects in this brand already.
Rich Russillo: Smart, talented and dangerous. A combination that Damien is best known to possess, but can it be enough to put out Blade. This win can be huge for Damien!
James Peters:Same for Blade, time to see who earns their stripes!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Blade wasting no time going into the offensive here, lefts and rights as Butler seems to be taken off guard by this incredible burst of speed and strength! Blade now with a low gut kick! Damian is slouched over! Blade scoops him up! WRATH!!! BLADE JUST LAYS OUT DAMIAN WITH WRATH SPINEBUSTER!!
James Peters: Oh no, don’t tell me it’s over already! LOOK! Blade now picking up Damian, barely letting him catch a breath….STARRCRASH!!!! WTF?!!! THE PIN!!
Rich Russillo: And a kickout! Looks like Blade just pulled off everything in his arsenal in the beginning of the match, but that means that Damian was not as affected, but still, Damian is shocked it was about to end right there! Blade now smirking like a demon as he measures Butler up, Blade holding up a “2” sign with his fingers mockingly! Blade with a vicious kick to Butler’s head! Blade lifting him up again, looking for a slam, BUT NO! Butler is wriggling free, Butler on his feet, back elbow! Blade stunned, Butler looking to capitalize… WRATHH!!! FOR A SECOND TIME, BLADE JUST LAYS HIM OUT! BUTLER INSTINCTIVELY ROLLING OUT OF THE RING!
James Peters: I wouldn’t call it instinct, probably just got knocked the fuck out! But regardless, Butler now on the floor and still with no air in his lungs after that terrific spinebuster. Blade is laughing in the ring as he continues to show his impressive presence in this match! Blade now looking at a recovering Butler, what could he be thinking of?! – Blade running back, LOOKING FOR A SUICIDE DIVE– NO!! Butler catches him mid-air with a right hand hook!

James Peters: Damian puts his feet on the ropes! We’ve seen him do this before! Butler is a beast of a man and few can decisively put him down! Blade now showing frustration as he grabs Damian by the hair and tries to lift him back up! — NO! Damian with a kick to the knees of Blade, SINGLE UNDERHOOK DDT!!! –BUTLER NOW WASTING NO TIME GOING FOR THE STF!!! STF LOCKED IN!
Rich Russillo: Blade struggling as Butler keeps pressing on the devastating submission hold. Butler always knows how to read his opponents, Blade might be looking to give up soon! HIs spine getting pulled back like pork meat! Blade on the verge of tapping out! — NOT SO SOON! Blade with a backward headbutt! Damian loosened his grip! BLADE LIFTS UP BUTLER ON HIS BACK!! — Damian reverses it into a Sitout Jawbreaker!!! PIN!!
James Peters: ANother kickout! This match has been going on full octane ever since the bell rang, both men trying desperately to prove before T.I that they have what it takes. And all it takes to carve your path is a well-defined victory, but it seems like Butler overestimated his chances! Butler now looking pissed off as he picks up Blade– NO! Blade with an eye poke! I don’t think the ref saw it properly! IRISH WHIP by Blade to Butler, Butler crashes against the corner turnbuckle, Blade charging in but Butler already anticipated it! Butler moves out of the way– NO!!! BLADE WITH CALAMITY!!! CALAMITY STRIKES!!
Rich Russillo: Both men crashing down on each other, Blade on top of Butler, so it’s a pin!
James Peters: NO! A kickout! I don’t know how he did it but Butler is still in the match!! Blade cannot believe it! Blade lifting up Butler by his head, talking him down and slapping him. The disrespect! , BUTLER RETALIATES! A series of forearms, followed by — SLINGBLADE! Damian now on the offensive as Blade looks out of his element here against the strategist of Voltage! Damian now measuring up Blade! Damian going behind an unsuspecting Blade, MOTHERBOARD!!!! DAMIAN WITH THE MOTHERBOARD!!! –NO!!! THE IMPACT MAKES BLADE FALL OUT OF THE RING!!
Rich Russillo: SO CLOSE! Blade, calling himself the perfect hunter, always knows how to not become the hunted! Damian now sliding out of the ring to bring him back in the ring, the referee now with a restricted view of what’s going on….LOW BLOW!! A KICK IN THE NETHER REGIONS BY BLADE TO DAMIAN!!
James Peters: Ouch! Blade now on the top again as the slams Damian against the barricade!! Damian writhing in pain as Blade tosses him back in the ring!
Rich Russillo: Blade now looking for the end here as he goes for the Fanged Wolf….NO! DAMIAN STRUGGLING!! — DAMIAN SLIDES OFF THE TOP,, REVERSAL MID AIR!!! — EMP SHOTGUN STUNNER!!!! PIN!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“The Next Movement” by The Roots hits as Damian Butler looks astounded at his own quick-reflexes that earned him a win, Damian, clutching his neck, looks on with a sight of hatred)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…DAMIANNN BUTTLERRR THEE THIRDDDD!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Woah, what a win by this man! We’ve seen him try again and again to put away the elistsist he’s come across, but this win here solidifies him as one of the top future stars now!
James Peters: He took on the relentless Blade and lucked out, something very few can, but I’m willing to bet that Butler was just that good and he had it all planned out. Regardless, a well-earned victory!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST!! FROM LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, WEIGHING IN AT 225 POUNDS, HE IS THE KING OF SWING…FRAAANKIEEE PAARAADISSSEE!!!!
Rich Russillo: This man made the ultimate upset when he beat Cepheus! I’m telling you all, if he can somehow pull off this tonight, he will become a legend in the future!
James Peters: You know, normally I’d say you exaggerate, but damn, I gotta agree, say what you will, but this man beating Cepheus IS something to brag about, but tonight he’s taking on a foe much, MUCH fearsome than the mobster could be, and he’s gotta be in his A-game
(The music dies down as “Natural” by Imagine Dragons hits and Terry Chambers makes his way down the ramp with a cocky stride as the fans cheer him on)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT, FROM DETROIT, MICHIGAN, WEIGHING IN AT 287 POUNDS, HE IS THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION…THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE…TERRRRYYYY CHAMBERRSS!!!!
James Peters: Now here’s a man who’s been pushed far last week by Dr. Bethany Blue. I’m sure he’s pissed, but he gets to take on the breakout star Frankie here tonight for the go-home show!
Rich Russillo: Hell yeah, I want to see how Frankie fares against a champion! Will the future pornstar pull off another miracle, or will Terry crush those dreams?
James Peters: :lupe:
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: And here we go! Terry wasting no time as he goes in for a headlock, but Frankie sidesteps the move, Frankie now with a series of punches, but Terry is unflinched! Terry retaliating with a headbutt! Frankie seems momentarily stunned as Terry WITH A LARIAT THAT SENDS FRANKIE OVER THE TOP ROPE!

Rich Russillo: Terry setting the tone for this match early on, looks like he’s trying to keep Frankie from retaliating! Terry with series of kicks! Look at him go, he’s denting in that skull of Frankie, now he’s picking Frankie up again and tossing him back inside the ring! Terry rolling in the ring too, RUNNING ELBOW DROP! PIN!
James Peters: KICKOUT! But Terry now transitions to a headlock and pressures the neck and chin of Frankie! Frankie struggling to get up as Terry holds on tightly.

Rich Russillo: A kickout! So far, Frankie has been hanging on well but for how long? Terry has set a great pacing for this match and has remained in control all the while. Terry now looking to end this it seems! Terry setting up for the T-5! Terry measuring Frankie! NO! JUMPING FRANKIE-STEINER!!! Terry caught completely off-guard with that move! Frankie transitions to a pin!
James Peters: Kickout!! Frankie not wasting any time, Frankie picking up Terry, but Terry with a kick to Frankie’s knee!

James Peters: KICKOUT! The Barbaric Carnivore with a kickout! Frankie will need to do more to put down the interwire champ! Frankie getting back to his feet!

FRANKIE REBOUNDS- TERRY WITH A KICK TO THE GUT OF FRANKIE! SNAP SUPLEX!! Frankie is just feeling it as Terry is showering his wrath on this sleazy SOB!
James Peters: Looks like Terry just about had enough of this, he’s taking Frankie and placing him at the corner, pulling him to the top rope! Both of them now on the top rope— WE MIGHT BE SEEING SOMETHING BIG HERE! –NO! FRANKIE WITH AN ELBOW TO THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE’S SKULL!

Terry clutching his back as he seems to show anguish in his face! — FRANKIE THROUGH THE ROPES AND LANDS ON TERRY! WOW!
Rich Russillo: Frankie going at it on Terry! This is an explosive side of him we’ve rarely seen! Frankie with kick after kick on a downed Terry, not letting the interwire champ back on his feet! Frankie with a running knee! IT CONNECTS! TERRY’S SKULL CRASHING AGAINST THE BARRICADE! The ref begins the countdown for both men to get back in the ring!
James Peters: Frankie not looking to end it this easily! Frankie picking up Terry and dragging him to get him back into the ring! BUT TERRY PUSHES HIM AWAY, BIG BOOT!!! FRANKIE GOES CRASHING AGAINST THE STEEL STEPS!!
Rich Russillo: NOW TERRY WITH A RUNNING KNEE! — BUT FRANKIE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!! TERRY’s KNEE MEETS THE COLD-HARD STEEL! FRANKIE WITH A KICK TO THE CHEST, FOLLOWED BY A BASEMENT DROPKICK!

James Peters: I don’t know if he’s really in here or he’s just playing mind games with Frankie like he did with Korey earlier, but he just cost Frankie the match…a match which he honestly felt like he was about to wi—-
(“Bad Medicine” by Bon Jovi hits as Bethany Blue makes her way out and on the stage holding her Ultimate Opportunity briefcase, smirking at Terry with a mic on in her hands. Terry demands for his own mic)
Terry Chambers: Hey, hey you, get inside the ring and face me. Here I am! Make your move, come on. COME ON!
Bethany Blue: Ha, all in due time Terry, you just went through a gruelling match, no way is the good doctor not taking that into account. A fight right now….would be unfair. You need to be at a 100% to beat me. I’m afraid that won’t be happening until….Territorial Invasion. So no Terry, I’m not making moves, not today.
(Bethany holds her briefcase up as she looks on to face Terry at Territorial Invasion. The scene at ringside fades to black.)
(Voltage fades to the backstage area where Aniyah Mitchell is seen on her phone. She’s watching a video and clearly it’s one of Jenny Cien’s latest promos, because ‘The Baddie’s’ voice is pretty recognizable. Aniyah is practically rolling her eyes to the back of her head, and after a moment she shuts the video off and lets out a laugh.)
Aniyah Mitchell: Imagine being such a hard up bitch that you really gunna waste your time talking about Ryan Wilson and Jake Smith, like they actually competition in the Divide and Conquer match. This little hoodrat needs to check herself and realize that her biggest fucking competition is gunna be the bitch who has to stand on the same side of the ring with her for a hot ass minute. Man, fuck Jenny Cien and any body who likes her because she a’int shit and WHEN we make it to the second stage of Divide and Conquer, Imma whoop her ass and take that world championship shot for my damn self. Talkin’ about how she’s some bright up and comer. Bitch is literally 30. How the fuck you gunna be an up and comer when yo ass already over the hill? Fuck outta here.
(Aniyah’s eyes widen and she spins around, coming face to face with the woman she defeated last week, Serena Riot. Serena has Revenge with her and she’s slapping it against the palm of her hand, and Aniyah can’t help but notice the trickles of blood on Serena’s palms and she makes a disgusted face.)
Aniyah Mitchell: The fuck you want, ho? Want me to beat the fuck outta you again?
(A knowing smile crosses Serena’s face.)
Serena Riot: I welcome it, but you already know that. I’m not one to shy away from fights or challenges, and facing off against you again is something I’m more than ready to do.
Aniyah Mitchell: Well do your part at Territorial Invasion and don’t be some stupid ass piece of dead weight, and who knows? Maybe I’ll make ya famous again and beat yo ass for the second straight time.
Serena Riot: Well, it’s an elimination style match so make sure you do your part as well, and get yourself to the second stage of it.
Aniyah Mitchell: Bitch, I’m winning the whole fucking thing and then taking my fine ass to Egypt and either whooping that old bitch Cameron Ella Ava, or destroying that ugly cac Kassidy Adams Heart or whatever the fuck she calls herself. That Universal Women’s Championship is as good as mine, and I’m about to win that shit in record time. Can’t tell me that I’m not the biggest and most important thing to ever walk through these doors.
Serena Riot: Believe me, you’re not. But before you pop off again, let me say this. The match we had against one another was a hell of a fight, and like I said, I’m more than happy to repeat it at any time, but when I look at the competition in the match, and even at the other so-called members of our team, I feel as if working together to get to that final stage would be beneficial for the both of us. We both know The Valkyrie are going to work together to try and make it to the final stage. Then who knows? Maybe they’ll both use their numbers advantage to take out the rest of us and make it a singles match between the two of them. There are a lot of factors to take into consideration, and I think you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t entertain all possible outcomes and alliances for this match.
(Aniyah opens her mouth to reply, but quickly shuts it because honestly, Serena did have a good point. In order to make it to the next stage, you needed to keep as many members of your team in the match as possible to keep the numbers advantage during the tag team portion of it.)
Serena Riot: A truce, at least for a little bit. Lets do what we can to eliminate every other man and woman from the match, and have ourselves a nice little rematch. I might not talk a lot about championship gold, but I wouldn’t mind getting a crack at it. Getting my hands on either Cameron Ella Ava or Kassidy Heart is certainly appealing especially when the both of them have faces that were just made for beating. The thought of taking Revenge and dragging her across the face of either those women makes me a little giddy.
Aniyah Mitchell: You a weird bitch, you know that right?
Serena Riot: :wow:
(Aniyah and Serena turn around and see Sarah Price approaching them. The blonde gives Aniyah and Serena a friendly smile.)
Sarah Price: Are you guys talking about the Divide and Conquer match?
Aniyah Mitchell: What’s it to you?
(Sarah keeps that smile of hers firmly in place and brushes her hair back off her face.)
Sarah Price: Well, I was kinda thinking the same thing you were, Serena, about how maybe having a number’s advantage could come into play. I mean, I know I haven’t been here long at all but I definitely want to give Territorial Invasion my all and hopefully earn myself a chance to compete for a championship! Even if it doesn’t necessarily happen right now, for me to even make it far in the match would be huge! I would love to work with you two in the Divide and Conquer match!
(Aniyah and Serena exchange looks.)
Aniyah Mitchell: Iiight, so hold up. You want us to carry you through the match, is that what you’re sayin’? Because I can tell you right now, sis. Shit aint about to go down like that.
Sarah Price: :whoa: Of course I don’t want you to carry me! I am more than capable of holding my own. I defeated Zak Simmons tonight to get my second win in a row, and I’m fairly confident I’m going to do super well at Territorial Invasion. Besides, there are three other Voltage Elitists in the match on the other side; Cepheus St. Claire, Jesse Barlow, and Shortfuse PAKA. I don’t know about you ladies, but I definitely don’t want to see any of them do well. Girl power!
(Aniyah rolls her eyes so hard she can practically see her brain, but Serena looks a little intrigued.)
Serena Riot: Trust me. Eliminating PAKA from this match is like my second biggest priority besides winning, and I’ll be honest with you both. I don’t really care for Cepheus and Jesse either. I would love nothing more to make sure that the only Voltage Elitists that are left in the match at the end are the three of us.
Sarah Price: Exactly! The women here are doing amazing things, and we absolutely deserve to be part of that conversation as well.
Aniyah Mitchell: You know, it does kind of bother the fuck out of me that the only names that get mentioned are Andrea Valentine, Raven Roberts, Ms. Extreme, and Consuela Rose Ava. Like fuck all that noise, I’m Aniyah Mitchell! That’s the name these people need to be sayin’ because if anyone is gunna end up with a world championship, it’s gunna be me. Lemme break it down for you bitches. You wanna call some kind of truce or make some kind of temporary alliance, fine by me. We work together and eliminate all these other pretenders from the match, and then I beat you both!
(Aniyah does an arrogant little twirl, but she’s got a smile on her face. Serena rolls her eyes and slams Revenge against her palm, causing Sarah to look a little disturbed, and Aniyah to make another disgusted face.)
Serena Riot: I wouldn’t bank on a victory if I were you, Aniyah, but I’m all for the first part. We work together and then it’s every woman for herself.
(Sarah looks at Aniyah and Serena, eagerly nodding her head.)
Sarah Price: May the best woman in the end!
(The Voltage girls all smirk as the scene backstage fades out. Voltage cuts to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Cheez-Its featuring The Woogieman. Woogie is seen sitting in a PETA meeting with Rachelle Owen, listening to a guest lecturer talk about how sad it is to see endangered Antarctic seals captured and skinned alive, and used for handbags and the lining of fur coats. Sad. However, Cheez-Its taste great and will temporarily make you forget about the dead seals and the fact you’re probably wearing one.)
(Voltage returns and once again, Bella is ready to announce the next match!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOW CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘The Path’ by Senses Fail hits and the crowd begins to boo as Jesse Barlow makes his way down to the ring. He doesn’t seem to be paying attention to the crowd, and instead looks a bit angered.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring… From Hoboken, New Jersey.. Weighing in at 210 pounds… JJJEEEESSSEEEEEE BAAARRLLOWWWW!!!!
James Peters: It’s clear Jesse Barlow isn’t in the best of moods tonight after a brawl that’s commenced earlier, but let’s speak about this match. Jesse Barlow is an extremely talented athlete, putting those like the 24/7 contract holder herself to the limit.
Rich Russillo: You’re not wrong about that. Sure, Jesse has come up short a few times, but he always gives it his best, and he always delivers. Tonight though? I don’t know if this will be a success for him.
(‘Mob Ties’ by Drake hits and the crowd doesn’t only continue booing, but start booing even louder as Cepheus St. Claire and Lonnie Delmonty walk out to the stage. After looking around at the booing fans, they begin walking down the ramp, as Cepheus also seems frustrated.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… Accompanied by Lonnie Delmonty.. Residing in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.. Weighing in at 230 pounds… CEEEPHEUS ST. CLAAAAIIIRREEE!!!!
Rich Russillo: Cepheus St. Claire. This man is someone who I think just may win the entire Divide and Conquer match, especially with Lonnie Delmonty by his side. This? I think this match will be a breeze for him. Cepheus is just amazing.
James Peters: I can’t deny Cepheus is a great talent. Despite his work ethic, he puts on a great performance every time he goes out there, which will make this a match to remember. The winner? We’ll just have to find out for ourselves, let’s start the match!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And this match is now underway! Jesse Barlow vs Cepheus St. Claire! Neither man is quick to make a move, instead they’re circling the ring, possibly waiting to see who’ll make the first move. Both men seem like they’re going to lock up- BUT NO! THERE’S A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION BY CEPHEUS! Cepheus has a grin on his face, clearly happy with himself, before irish whipping Jesse into the ropes! SHOULDER BLOCK BY JESSE! Jesse now running the ropes as Cepheus begins to get back up, AND THERE’S A DROPKICK, DROPPING CEPHEUS RIGHT ONTO HIS BACK! Jesse now making his way over to Cepheus, but the Treacherous One is quick to roll out of the ring! It looks like he’s buying time to recover as he’s just walking around the ring, looking up at Cepheus as the referee begins to count!
Rich Russillo: Jesse now rolling out of the ring himself, seemingly having enough of Cepheus already, but of course Cepheus rolls right back into the ring once Jesse gets out of it! Jesse clearly seems frustrated right now, but Cepheus just has a huge grin on his face! Jesse now slowly making his way into the ring- AND CEPHEUS GOES RIGHT AFTER HIM! CEPHEUS JUST KICKED JESSE IN THE MIDSECTION ONCE AGAIN, AND NOW HE’S POUNDING AWAY AT HIM BEFORE HE EVEN HAD A CHANCE TO DEFEND HIMSELF! CEPHEUS IS ALL OVER JESSE, CAUSING JESSE TO ROLL UNDER THE ROPES WHICH FORCES THE REFEREE TO SEPARATE THE TWO! Cepheus now is re-approaching Jesse- AND THERE’S A PUNCH RIGHT TO THE JAW, JUST AS CEPHEUS TRIED PULLING JESSE UP! JESSE NOW IS CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE AS CEPHEUS IS STAGGERED, AND THERE’S A DIVING DOUBLE AXE HANDLE!
James Peters: Cepheus now holding his head as he slowly gets back to his feet, but there’s an irish whip by Jesse into the corner! Jesse now charging in, AND THERE’S A CLOTHESLINE! Jesse now with an irish whip into the opposite corner, AND THERE’S ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE INTO THE CORNER! JESSE NOW PULLING CEPHEUS AWAY FROM THE ROPES, AND THERE’S THE FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!
James Peters: CEPHEUS KICKS OUT BEFORE TWO! Jesse now with a rear chinlock on St. Claire, and you can see at ringside Lonnie Delmonty is encouraging Cepheus to try and get out of this hold! Cepheus is trying to get onto one foot but he’s clearly having trouble as Jesse is trying as hard as he can to keep this chinlock applied! Jesse has the chinlock applied as tightly as he can, but still Cepheus manages to get to one foot! Cepheus now is able to get back onto both feet, and he pushes Jesse into the ropes, causing him to release the hold! Cepheus now, WITH A DROPKIC- NO! JESSE HELD ONTO THE ROPES, CAUSING CEPHEUS TO NOT CONNECT WITH ANYTHING! JESSE NOW GRABBING CEPHEUS BY THE BACK, AND HE JUST THREW HIM OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
Rich Russillo: Cepheus landed hard! He’s still able to quickly get to his feet, but he’s taking some time to recover after landing on his back the way he did. That may not be the best idea though as it looks like Jesse is running the ropes! SUICIDE DI- NO! CEPHEUS JUMPED ONTO THE APRON BEFORE JESSE COULD GO THROUGH THE ROPES! JESSE MANAGED TO STOP HIMSELF IN BETWEEN THE ROPES, BUT THERE’S A BOOT RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF HIS FACE BY CEPHEUS ON THE APRON! CEPHEUS NOW QUICKLY GETTING INTO THE RING, AND NOW THERE’S A SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP, AND HE’S PUTTING HIS FEET ON THE ROPES FOR LEVERAGE, HE MIGHT JUST STEAL THIS ONE!
James Peters: JESSE KICKS OUT! JESSE NOW GETTING TO BOTH KNEES, AND THERE’S A ROUNDHOUSE KICK- NO! JESSE DUCKED IT, AND NOW HE’S THE ONE ROLLING UP CEPHEUS!
James Peters: CEPHEUS KICKS OUT THIS TIME, BUT NOW JESSE IS RUNNING THE ROPES AS HE BEGINS GETTING BACK UP! ABOLISHE- NO! CEPHEUS THROWS JESSE OVER THE TOP ROPE BUT HE MANAGES TO LAND ON THE APRON! CEPHEUS NOW CHARGING TOWARDS JESSE BUT JESSE JUMPS OVER HIM, CONNECTING WITH A SUNSET FLIP, AS WELL AS THE PIN!
James Peters: CEPHEUS KICKS OUT AND GETS RIGHT BACK TO HIS FEET, AND THERE’S A BOOT TO THE FACE BY THE TREACHEROUS ONE! Cepheus now waiting in the corner, clearly waiting until Jesse gets back to his feet, but it looks like Jesse is beginning to climb into the corner! Cepheus seems just fine with that though, BECAUSE THERE’S A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE! CEPHEUS NOW WITH AN IRISH WHIP INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER, AND THERE’S A SECOND RUNNING KNEE! IT LOOKS LIKE CEPHEUS IS GOING FOR THE FOUR CORNERS OF DISDAIN, AND THERE’S AN IRISH WHIP INTO THE THIRD CORNER AS CEPHEUS CHARGES IN!!
Rich Russillo: JESSE MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! CEPHEUS NOW HOPPING OUT OF THE CORNER, HOLDING HIS KNEE AS JESSE RUNS THE ROPES! ABOLISHER!!!! ABOLISHER!! THE SPEAR CONNECTS, NEARLY SPLITTING CEPHEUS IN HALF, AND THERE’S THE COVER NOW TO PUT CEPHEUS AWAY!!
Rich Russillo: NO!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? CEPHEUS MANAGED TO GET THE SHOULDER UP, JUST BEFORE THREE!! JESSE IS SHOCKED, HE’S ASKING THE REFEREE BUT IT’S TRUE, CEPHEUS MANAGED TO GET HIS SHOULDER UP JUST BEFORE THREE! I can’t lie James, I thought Jesse had it won right there, but somehow Cepheus managed to stay in this match! I don’t think it’s gonna matter for long though, because Jesse is backing up into the corner and he’s yelling at Cepheus to get to his feet!
James Peters: Cepheus doesn’t even seem to know where he is right now. To be honest, I think this match is nearing the end. Cepheus is finally using those ropes to get to his feet, AND NOW JESSE IS CHA- WAIT! WAIT NO! LONNIE GRABBED JESSE’S FOOT, STOPPING HIM FROM CHARGING TOWARDS CEPHEUS! JESSE IS YELLING AT LONNIE NOW, CLEARLY FRUSTRATED WITH WHAT HE JUST DID- AND NOW CEPHEUS JUST BLINDSIDED HIM! CEPHEUS JUST MANAGED TO TAKE JESSE OUT AS HE WAS DISTRACTED BY LONNIE, AND NOW CEPHEUS IS STOMPING A HOLE IN HIM!
Rich Russillo: Things are looking really bad for Jesse right now! Cepheus now backing up as Jesse pulls himself up with the turnbuckles, AND THERE’S A THIRD RUNNING KNEE, THIS TIME TO THE BACK OF JESSE! CEPHEUS NOW WITH AN IRISH WHIP INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER, AND NOW HE FINALLY HITS THE FOURTH RUNNING KNEE, THE FOUR CORNERS OF DISDAIN CONNECTS, BUT EVEN AFTER THAT CEPHEUS ISN’T FINISHED! CEPHEUS NOW LIFTING JESSE UP, AND THERE’S A BRAINBUSTER! JESSE WAS JUST DROPPED RIGHT ONTO HIS HEAD WITH THAT BRAINBUSTER, AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER, THIS MAY BE IT!
James Peters: NO, IT’S NOT FINISHED! THIS MATCH STILL ISN’T FINISHED! JESSE MANAGED TO GET HIS SHOULDER UP THIS TIME, AND CEPHEUS IS FURIOUS!! CEPHEUS IS YELLING AT THE REFEREE RIGHT NOW BUT THE REF’S CALL WON’T BE CHANGED, JUST LIKE CEPHEUS KICKED OUT MOMENTS AGO, JESSE BARLOW HAS SOMEHOW MANAGED TO STAY IN THIS MATCH! LONNIE DELMONTY CAN’T BELIEVE HIS EYES RIGHT NOW, CEPHEUS NEARLY WON DUE TO HIS DISTRACTION BUT SOMEHOW THIS MATCH STILL ISN’T OVER YET!
Rich Russillo: Jesse is holding his neck after that brainbuster, trying to crawl towards the ropes as a way to make some space for himself, but it doesn’t look like Cepheus is just gonna let him do that as he’s just kicking him around! He looks like he’s just toying with Jesse at this point as he’s just slowly kicking away at him, not giving him a chance to recover! Jesse now finally pulling himself under the ropes but it doesn’t matter as Cepheus literally kicks him out of the ring! Cepheus now following Jesse outside and it seems he’s not done as he grabs Jesse by the neck, AND THROWS HIM INTO THE RINGPOST! Cepheus now pulling Jesse back up, AND NOW HE THROWS HIM INTO THE STEEL STAIRS- WAIT NO! JESSE JUMPED ONTO THEM, AND NOW HE’S TURNED AROUND! DIVING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT OFF OF THE STEEL STAIRS BY JESSE BARLOW!!
James Peters: I don’t know if that was a last resort or if Jesse knew what he was doing, but either way he took out both him and Cepheus while the referee is already at a count of three!
Referee: Four!… Five!..
James Peters: Jesse now pulling himself onto the apron at a count of six as Cepheus is slowly able to follow behind!
Referee:… Seven!… Eight!
James Peters: Jesse is in the ring a count of eight.. Count of nine- AND CEPHEUS IS BACK IN AS WELL!! THIS MATCH ISN’T OVER JUST YET AS BOTH MEN MANAGED TO GET IN THE RING JUST BEFORE THE COUNT OF TEN! Jesse of course is the first man to get to their feet as Cepheus seems to be using the referee to try and help him to his feet. Jesse now running the ropes- BUT NO! LONNIE JUST GRABBED THE LEG AGAIN BUT THIS TIME TRIPPED JESSE AS THE REFEREE WAS DISTRACTED! THAT MAY HAVE BEEN CEPHEUS’ PLAN ALL ALONG AS HE IMMEDIATELY CHARGES TOWARDS JESSE! SHADY ENDING- WAIT NO!! JESSE GOES DOWN AND PULLS CEPHEUS INTO A SCHOOLBOY ROLL UP!!
Rich Russillo: CEPHEUS KICKED OUT, BUT NOW JESSE IS RUNNING THE ROPES AS CEPHEUS JUST GOT TO ONE FOOT! NEVERMORE!! THE NEVERMORE CONNECTS, AND THERE’S THE COVER NOW BY JESSE BARLOW, THIS MATCH IS DONE, IT’S GOTTA BE OVER NOW!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… JJJEEESSSEEEEE BAAARRRLOOWWW!!!!
James Peters: JESSE DID IT, JESSE BEAT CEPHEUS! I thought Cepheus had it won when Lonnie tripped Jesse and Cepheus went for the Shady Ending, but somehow Jesse not only managed to counter it, but he hit the Nevermore and got the win!
Rich Russillo: That was the biggest display of luck I’ve ever seen! Cepheus DID have it won right then and there, but of course Jesse was lucky enough to roll him up, which of course allowed him to connect with that knee strike! Seriously, Cepheus should’ve-
(Suddenly, ‘Breakin Outta H*ll’ by Airbourne hits, which causes the crowd to explode as Shortfuse PAKA walks down to the ring. The first thing PAKA does is walk straight into the ring, staring a hole into Jesse Barlow.)
James Peters: We’ve seen the issues these three have had with each other earlier tonight during that brawl, and it seems like things haven’t gotten any better since then. You can see the rage in PAKA’s eyes, and I don’t like where this is go- OH MY GOD!
Rich Russillo: ANIYAH MITCHELL, AND SERENA RIOT!! THEY JUST TOOK OUT BOTH JESSE BARLOW AND SHORTFUSE PAKA!! THEY’RE BEATING THE LIFE OUT OF JESSE AND PAKA, WHAT’S GOING ON HERE!?
James Peters: I THOUGHT ANOTHER BRAWL WOULD START UP WITH PAKA AND JESSE, I DIDN’T THINK THESE TWO WOULD GET INVOLVED! THEY’RE ALL OVER PAKA AND JESSE RIGHT NOW, BUT LOOK WHO IT IS!!
(Right after those words, Sarah Price sprints down the ramp and into the ring, seemingly there to stop Aniyah and Serena. The two back off a bit as Cepheus very slowly begins to get back up, but they still have smiles on their faces.)
Rich Russillo: I can’t really make out what they’re saying, but they’re pointing right at Cepheus, much to the dismay of Lonnie Delmonty, who’s clearly powerless in this situation! It looks like they’re encouraging Sarah to get involved! We all saw these three make a temporary alliance earlier! But Sarah seems hesitant to strike!
James Peters: BITTERSWEET ENDING!?!? SARAH JUST HIT CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE WITH THE BITTERSWEET ENDING!! THE SMILES HAVE GROWN EVEN MORE ON SERENA AND ANIYAH’S FACES, BUT IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE THEY’RE FINISHED JUST YET! SERENA RIOT NOW IS CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE AS PAKA IS IN PRIME POSITION!! THE DEMON DROP!! WHAT A SHOOTING STAR PRESS BY SERENA RIOT!!
Rich Russillo: YEAH, BUT NOW LOOK!! ANIYAH IS PICKING JESSE UP, AND IT LOOKS CLEAR WHAT SHE’S SETTING HIM UP FOR!! BARBIE DREAMS!! THE BARBIE DREAMS CONNECTS, AND THESE THREE WOMEN HAVE JUST TAKEN OUT SHORTFUSE PAKA, CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE, AND JESSE BARLOW, ALL MEMBERS OF THE DIVIDE AND CONQUER MATCH!!
(Aniyah Mitchell, Serena Riot, and Sarah Price stand over the three fallen competitors, with Serena and Aniyah sporting big, confident grins after what they’ve done to their competition.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for jelly.)
(Voltage fades back in and cuts to the ring. Bella can’t help but grin.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME… TEAM VOLTAGE!
(“Gangsta” by New Years Day begins to play across the PA system. The sold-out crowd inside the Legacy Arena rises to their feet and begins to cheer as Ms. Extreme, Andrea Valentine, and Raven Roberts step onto the stage. All three women wear gold shirts with the slogan #QueensOnly across the chest, as well as jeans and shoes in their respective styles. Andrea is carrying the Specialists Championship and Raven has her Cash in the Vault briefcase. Ms. Extreme leads them down to the ring, and the crowd’s chanting can be heard over the music.)
Crowd: QUEENS ONLY! *clap, clap, clap* QUEENS ONLY! *clap, clap, clap* QUEENS ONLY! *clap, clap, clap*
(Ms. Extreme, Andrea, and Raven get into the ring and all three of them take the time to soak up the reaction they’re getting. It’s plain as day the Voltage fans have their backs 100%, and they show their appreciation to the EAW Universe by posing for them and mouthing the words ‘thank you’ over and over again. After a few minutes of this, Raven retrieves microphones for all of them and Ms. Extreme’s music fades out. Andrea is the first speak.)
Andrea Valentine: After being at Dynasty and watching the show backstage, it’s become real clear that neither of the other teams understand a damn thing about us and what we’ve been through to reach this point. Serena Bennett proving once again she lacks class and overall awareness for what goes on in EAW, and screaming ‘suck my dick Andrea and Jamie’ just really sums up why they’re such a mess. I think I speak for all three of us when I say that Serena declaring herself a ‘GOAT’ captain is the most laughable thing I’ve heard so far and believe me, we’ve already been listening to the shit getting slung. Serena and Jamie might officially be called ‘captains’ but as far as Team Voltage goes, we don’t have a leader. I might be on the poster, but Camille is the one who marched into enemy territory last week and got the job done against Serena and Ahren. Raven is the one who’s proven time and time again that she can hang with any Elitist, male or female, in this company. She’s as tough as they come, and I am as well, and unlike the other two teams, our team is built on mutual respect and a shared goal with one another. We don’t need an egomaniac standing front and center for us. We don’t need trust exercises, or gifts, or whatever other forms of team bonding you can think of to bring us together. We’re in this together because we want to be, and we believe in each other and our own abilities to get the job done in War Games.
(Ms. Extreme twirls the microphone before she starts to speak.)
Ms. Extreme: Lack of awareness isn’t anything new. You can tell the second a member of Team Showdown or Team Dynasty opens their mouth, they don’t know what the fuck they’re talking about. The self-absorbed individuals on the other two teams have always relied on generic trash talk and other people feeding them lines (looking at you Ahren) to get the job done. Since they clearly don’t watch Voltage, or even pay attention to social media and message boards, I’m going to tell the world one more time that Veena Adams placed us in this match to fail. We weren’t given our spot in the match because this brand deems us the best it has to offer. I mean we are, but the woman who used to be in charge thinks so little of us that she decided to ‘feed’ us to War Games in hopes we would get injured or destroyed. Our brand does not respect us, but that’s alright. We respect one another. Team Voltage is on equal footing. We listen to each other and keep each other in line. We enter War Games standing next to each other as a united force. There’s not one woman who is leading the match for the other two. We’re all leading each other into this problematic match, and we will exit out victorious. We know what we’re up against come Territorial Invasion, and what odds the rest of the world thinks we’re facing. We’re more than prepared for whatever is going to come our way next weekend.
(Raven raises the microphone to take her turn, but the noise for the crowd temporarily stops her. The chants of the crowd, and just the overall electricity in the air has Ms. Cash in the Vault shaking her head in amazement.)
Raven Roberts: Wow. I’ll be honest. Competing in War Games is one of the items on my personal bucket list of things I want to do, but I never expected it to come under these circumstances. I definitely never expected it to be side by side with Camille and Andrea. I think it’s fair to say that when it comes to team environments, I’m weary. I don’t trust easily, and that’s because of what I went through with the Crowe’s Nest. I also know that it’s probably hard for these two women to put their trust in me. But here we stand, and the entire EAW Universe knows that out of all the teams going into this match, we are the most cohesive. We’re more than ready for War Games, one of the matches that epitomized the brutality of last season. A match that left bodies broken and World Champions helpless on the canvas. Alliances formed in a matter of weeks tested to their greatest lengths. This is the kind of match that’s probably going to shorten my career, which I know is exactly what it was intended to do. But I guess that’s part of the motivation this week. All this time you’re going to hear various Elitists try and tell you why they are going to win this match. What’s pushing them. Why they believe their brand or team is superior. Probably even some varying stances on brand loyalty. But let me summarize all of it up in one simple statement. None of the driving forces for any of the other teams makes a damn difference. And here’s why. Ask me why Camille, Andrea, and I think we’re going to win. Ask me what our driving force is. Ask me what our motivation in this match is centered around. Why does Team Voltage believe it’s going to win? Ask any of the three of us this question and we will give you the same answer.
(Raven, Ms. Extreme, and Andrea all exchange looks.)
Raven Roberts: Because we don’t have any other choice.
Andrea Valentine: Failure simply isn’t an option for any of us, and losing War Games isn’t something we’re going to entertain. Whether Veena gets to watch backstage or at home is completely irrelevant to us because we know she’s going to be watching. In one night she’s going to see everything she tried to build crumble before her eyes when Rex takes Charlie’s EAW World Championship and the three of us win War Games.
Ms. Extreme: We’re the underdogs; the ones set up to fail. But when the dust settles and the bell rings, 87,000 people in Auburn are going to be chanting ‘Queens Only’ as we raise our hands in victory.
Crowd: QUEENS ONLY! *clap, clap, clap* QUEENS ONLY! *clap, clap, clap* QUEENS ONLY! *clap, clap, clap*
Raven Roberts: ‘Queens Only’. Who knew that would end up becoming our battle cry? From the moment we set foot on the gold brand, Veena Adams made her contempt for us very clear. There would be no consideration for our talent, our capability, our accolades. None of it mattered. We were an abomination to her ideals because of our genders and that’s all that mattered, even doling out a hit list of the three of us and Camille’s sister to her bumbling half-wit of an incompetent puppet. But time after time as Veena has tried to test us, tried to break us, she’s failed. We’re still here and fighting at the highest caliber of this industry. And so now Veena throws us into War Games with one hope. She wants us to lose, to have our bodies broken by the other elitists in this match because she can’t get the job done. This match is our marching orders on the frontline of a war zone. The ones chosen to die. She wants our careers and possibly our lives ended inside that structure.
Andrea Valentine: But how many times have people tried to end us? How many times have we gone into matches that weren’t designed for us to survive? Maybe it is repetitive to bring that up, but we aren’t doing anything the other teams aren’t going to do. They’re going to brag and drag, and expect us not to clap back, which itself is ridiculous. None of us have ever been shy when it comes to speaking up and that’s exactly why we pose such a threat to the vision of Voltage that Veena and Charlie were determined to erect. Veena might be suspended now, but that doesn’t mean any of us are going to let up. We’re going to do whatever it takes to win.
Ms. Extreme: PeRiOdT.
(The Red Queen smirks.)
Ms. Extreme: There is no one I would rather go to war with than Raven and Andrea. It sounds sappy as fuck, and I don’t do that at all, but we need to go out there to prove to people like Veena Adams and Charlie Marr that if they wanted to put people into War Games to fail, that is never going to be us. We need to fight until we can’t fight any longer. We are taking no fucking prisoners.
Andrea, Raven, and Ms. Extreme: QUEENS ONLY!
(The crowd erupts as ‘Roll With Me’ by Charlie XCX begins to play. The girls drop their mics and raise one another’s hands. Voltage fades its final break of the night.)
(Commercial break for Monday Night Football, Browns versus Jets. Catch the game live on ESPN at 8PM EST!)
(Voltage returns and fades to the backstage area, where Sofia Clarke is standing by. She has a bright smile on her face.)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time… Rex McAllister!
(The camera shot widens and Rex is seen in street clothes. He gives Sofia a curt nod of his head, and she gets on with the interview.)
Sofia Clarke: I feel like we just did one of these interviews!
Rex McAllister: We did… last week in fact! Before the state of Mississippi banned us from using the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum.
Sofia Clarke: :wow: I’m not sure what to think about all that, but the show had to go on. We made due, and unfortunately, Rex, last week you suffered your first loss of season 13. I think we all kind of knew that your opponent for Territorial Invasion, Charlie Marr, wouldn’t exactly be the model referee.
Rex McAllister: Sofia, trust me. I am so far removed from what happened last week. But as we approach Territorial Invasion, it would be remiss if I didn’t stand here and think back to where I was at this time last year. I was the EAW World Heavyweight Champion and I was getting set to lead my team into War Games against the 1%, the Jaded Wolfe Hearts, and Diamond Cage and the NEO Syndicate. My team consisted of Daryl Kinkade and Charlie Marr, two men who were being groomed to be the future of this sport. Now, fast forward a year later and I’m taking on Charlie for the EAW World Championship. Daryl Kinkade is nowhere to be found. And I’m still the same rock steady Rex that I’ve always been. I’m heading into a world championship match that I’m more than determined to win against an opponent I know better than anyone. Charlie did nothing to me last week that I didn’t expect or anticipate. Like my fiancée and her friends have been done, I wasn’t set up to win last week. However, undefeated streaks will come and go, and after what happened earlier, I can stroll into Jordan-Hare Stadium with even more confidence knowing that Veena Adams won’t be there to serve as Charlie’s security blanket.
Sofia Clarke: That was definitely an interesting turn of events tonight, and something none of us really saw coming. Charlie definitely seemed upset about the fact that Veena Adams is indefinitely suspended from Voltage.
Rex McAllister: Of course he’s upset. All Charlie Marr has done this entire season is hide behind Veena’s skirt and let her clear the path for him. Charlie had the easiest and most undeserving path to a world championship shot I have ever seen. It was all but handed to him, although considering the lengths Veean and Jordie went through to make sure he actually won the match, I guess it is fair to say that Charlie was handed that belt. But to be honest with you, how Charlie obtained that championship is the furthest thing from my mind. All I know is that I want it, and when I want something and set my sights on achieving it, I never let myself down. I have never hidden the fact that I feel I belong in the world championship picture and getting that belt back around my waist is always the goal. At Territorial Invasion, I’ll be able to not only do what I want to do, I’ll be wrestling this match and going for the win for everyone else as well. No one wants to see Charlie Marr make a mockery out of the most prestigious world championship we have.
Sofia Clarke: What would it mean to you to become the EAW World Champion again?
Rex McAllister: It would be the culmination of my hard word, bit there’s so much to fight for right now. I’ve always been willing to carry Voltage on my back and go as hard as possible, and get the job done for everyone who supports me. That hasn’t changed and neither has my purpose. I’m the standard bearer the Voltage, the man everyone can count on when they need someone to get the job done. Next weekend, I’m going to take into account everything that’s happened so far this season and channel it, and put on the best possible match that I can. I know that when I’m at my best, no one is able to match me, least of all someone like Charlie.
Sofia Clarke: You could be right about that, Rex. It would be hard for anyone to make an argument against that. I personally wish you good luck next weekend at Territorial Invasion.
Rex McAllister: I appreciate that.
(The scene fades to the ringside area.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Bella Braxton: AND IT’S YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING!!!
( ‘We Appreciate Power’ by Grimes blasts through the speaker as the crowd responds with a resounding pop. Consuela Rose Ava emphatically makes her way towards the ring as she appears to be incredibly concentrated on the task at hand. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Frias, Spain, weighing in at 120 pounds… CONNNNSUEELLLLLA ROOOOSSSSSSEEEEEEE AAAAAAVVVVAAAAA!!!
James Peters: Consuela Rose Ava looking to add another piece to her puzzle as she seeks an opportunity to capture a victory over the World Champion, Charlie Marr. With the decorated resume of Charlie Marr, Ava has a massive challenge ahead of her, but this is nothing new to her. In the past, she has been on the other side of adversity and she hopes to maintain that reputation here in the main event of Voltage.
( After Ava gets comfortable in a corner, ‘It Ain’t Safe’ by Skepta is played throughout the venue. The crowd overlaps it with boos as Charlie Marr holds the EAW World Championship in his hand and is accompanied by Jordie Ripley as he marches down the ramp. )
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT! Accompanied to the ring by Jordie Ripley, from Tower Hamlets, London, England, weighing in at 240 pounds….. HE IS THE EEEAAAAWWWW.. WORRRRLLLLLLDDD CHAMPIIONNNNN… CHAAAARRRLLIIIIEEEE.. MAAAARRRRRRRRR!!!
Rich Russillo: One of the most polarizing figures here who reside on Voltage makes his way down the ring and he is closely followed by the mastermind that is Jordie Ripley. Charlie Marr is more dangerous than ever with that World Championship belt around his waist and he is going to prove that when he defeats Consuela tonight.
( DING! DING! DING! )
James Peters: Ava and Marr engaging in the center of the ring as Marr muscles Ava into the corner. AND WHAT A RIGHT FIST TO THE FACE OF AVA!!! Marr needs to consistently be ahead of Ava’s game if he wants to keep his physical and mental condition as pristine as possible heading into his championship defense at Territorial Invasion.
Rich Russillo: Ava was decked by that stiff fist to the jaw as Marr applies pressure onto her with a headlock. Ava clearly taking a gamble here with the major size advantage, but after the announcement of women not having to adhere to the Empire brand expectations, this is going to be a common pattern for the rest of her opponents.
James Peters: Ava now tries to break the strong grip of Marr, struggling as she begins to drive Marr into the corner turnbuckle. Marr refuses to relinquish the hold as he lets go and rams Ava into the corner! Ava needs to gain wind here as MARR BLASTS HER INTO THE CORNER WITH A CLOTHESLINE!!!
Rich Russillo: Ava floored by that corner clothesline as Marr sprints into the other corner! AVA SHOOTS OFF THE CORNER AND MEETS MARR HALFWAY WITH A YAKUZA KICK!! Ava getting in her first offense here as she bounces off the ropes, avoids Marr’s clothesline, SHOOTS UP AND SENDS MARR INTO THE CANVAS WITH A HURRICANRANA.
James Peters: Marr scrambles into the corner as AVA FOLLOWS UP AND DRIVES HIM INTO THE BUCKLES WITH A RUNNING EUROPeaN UPPERCUT. AVA PICKS HIM UP, CARRIES HIM THROUGH THE RING AND DRILLS HER WITH A SIDE SLAM BACKBREAKER!!! Ava quickly hooks her leg for the first cover of this match.
Rich Russillo: Marr immediately kicks out as Ava quickly wraps her arms around the neck of Marr, squeezing it as she applies a sleeper hold. Marr responds quickly, drops down and RELEASES THE HOLD WITH A SIT-OUT JAWBREAKER!! Ava momentarily stunned as Marr walks into the corner.
James Peters: AND GETS FLOORED BY A DEVASTATING BACK ELBOW TO THE JAW!! AVA SHOOTS FROM THE CORNER! AND MARR RETALIATES WITH A BIG BOOT!!! ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!! Marr ducks it and spins around! DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!!! BUT AVA EVADES IT!!!
Rich Russillo: Ava avoids the Charing Cross lariat as she blasts Marr with a kick to the gut. Marr grabs her foot, twists her around and lifts her up! BACK SUPLEX! AVA LANDS CLEAN ON HER FEET AS MARR CHASES HER INTO THE ROPES!! Ava pulls the ropes down and Marr goes splattering onto the ringside floor!
James Peters: The referee advising her not to go aerial as Ava goes quick on her feet and runs the ropes! BUT RIPLEY STANDS IN FRONT OF MARR!!!!! AVA NOT STOPPING AS SHE SHIFTS HER DIRECTION INTO THE CORNER!!! THE REFEREE ARGUES WITH RIPLEY AT RINGSIDE WHILE AVA BOOSTS HERSELF OVER THE RINGPOST!!
Rich Russillo: AND SOARS ONTO MARR WITH A TOPE CONSUELA HILLO!!!!! AVA OUTSMARTING THE WORLD CHAMPION AS SHE SHOVES HIM BACK INTO THE SQUARED CIRCLE! Ava leaps onto the ropes while Marr gets up to his feet! AVA SOARS AND FLOORS MARR WITH A SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY!!! COVER!
James Peters: Marr gets his shoulder up! Ava forces him towards the corner and FIRES A BARRAGE OF KNIFE-EDGE CHOPS ONTO THE CHEST OF THE WORLD CHAMPION!! Marr overpowered by these battering chops while Ava whips him to the opposite corner! AVA FOLLOWS HIM, JUMPS UP AND EATS THE TURNBUCKLE AS MARR SIDESTEPPED HER!
Rich Russillo: Marr drags her down, grabs her legs and DEADLIFTS HER UP INTO THE AIR!!! DEADLIFT POWERBOMB!!! BUT, AVA FLIPS OUT OF THE HOLD, LANDS ON HER FEET AND CONNECTS WITH A STEP-UP ENZIGURI!! Marr unable to finish off his showcase of raw power while Marr ricochets off the ropes AND ANNIHILATED HER WITH A LARIAT!!!
James Peters: Marr immediately grabs and hoists her up into the air with a vertical suplex! Marr looking for a big-time move AS AVA TURNS IT AROUND AND SPIKES HIM WITH A DDT!!! Marr held her up in the air for too long and that was enough for Ava to realize her position and turn it to her favour.
Rich Russillo: Marr and Ava for the first time in this match both laid out on the canvas as they make their way up to their feet. Both individuals charge into each other as Ava circles around his waist! Marr slaps her wrists away and brings her down into a headlock. Ava traps him with a headscissors, forces him to relinquish the hold as they both get up back to their feet.
James Peters: ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! But Ava grabs his foot at the right time, holding it in the air as she spins him around AND DECKS HIM WITH A DRAGON SCREW!!! AVA TARGETING HIS LEFT LEG AS MARR SCURRIES TOWARDS THE CORNER.Ava runs the ropes and BLASTS MARR WITH A JUMPING CORNER FOREARM!!!

James Peters: Ava stunned on the apron while Marr rebounds off the ropes and spins around! CHARING CROSS!!! BUT AVA DUCKS IT AND STEPS ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE PADS!!! FLIPS BACKWARDS AND SOARS FROM THE APRON INTO THE RING ONTO MARR WITH A MAGNIFICENT MOONSAULT!!
Rich Russillo: Marr immediately retreats out of the ring as Ava runs the ropes, jumps over the turnbuckle pads, STEPS UP ONTO THEM AND SOARS BACKWARDS!! ASAI MOOOOOOONSSAULLTTT!! LEMMOONNLIGHTTT AS AVA BRINGS MARR BACK INTO THE SQUARED CIRCLE!! AVA LOOKING FOR THE TRIFECTA FINISH AS MARR HAS NOWHERE TO GO!!!! SHE SOARS!!! ANOTHER MOONSAULT!!!! MOONSAULT OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS AVA COVERS HIM!!
James Peters: KICK OUT! Ava starting to become incensed as she backs him up towards the corner. She reaches down and attempts to hoist him in an electric chair, but Marr clings onto the top ropes and fights out of the position! Marr blasts Ava with the sole of his boot before he stands on the top turnbuckle.
Rich Russillo: AVA SPRINGS ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!! SPAAANISHH FLY!!! BUT MARR HOLDS ON FOR DEAR LIFE!! AVA STRUGGLING TO PULL HIM OFF THE TOP ROPE AS MARR BLASTS HER WITH A FOREARM SMASH!!

James Peters: SUUUPPPPERRRPLEEXXX ONTO THE APRON!!!! A DEVASTATING SUPERPLEX ONTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING AS BOTH INDIVIDUALS GO BOUNCING OFF THE APRON!! I don’t think it was in favour of Marr as both of them took the same fall onto the apron.
Rich Russillo: However, Marr gingerly makes his way up to his feet and gets ahold of Ava. Marr choosing not to get her into the ring and record a pinfall as he clears our announce table. Marr gets onto the table, brings Ava with him as he has bad intentions in mind! AVA SHOOTS UP AND FIRES BACK WITH AN UPKICK TO THE JAW!!
James Peters: Ava crawls off the table as Marr is dazed! AVA JUMPS BACK ONTO THE TABLE, HOLDS ONTO MARR, FLIPS BACKWARDS AND PLANTS HIM ONTO THE RINGSIDE MAT WITH A SPANISH FLY OFF THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!!
RIch Russillo: Ava shoves Marr back into the ring and lines him at the corner! AVA SIZES HIM UP!!!! RUNNING KNEEEEE!!!! NO!!! AVA WAS LOOKING FOR HER LA RODILLA DE LA MUERTE RUNNING KNEE BUT MARR HOLDS HER UP IN A POWERBOMB!! AVA JUMPS OVER HIS SHOULDERS, RUNS PAST HIM AND SPRINGS OFF THE TURNBUCKLES!! MOONSAULT!!

AND DRILLS HIM WITH A SUPERKICK!!! Marr is perplexed as Ava hops onto the back of his neck, pulls him down, and SPIKES HIM WITH AN INVERTED HURRICANRANA!! However, Ava isn’t going for a pinfall attempt as she runs the ropes! SHE JUMPS ONTO MARR!! TILT-A-WHIRL DDDDDTTTT!!!!!!!!!!! COVER!!!

BUT AVA GRABS HIS ARM AND PULLS HIM DOWN! SUELLLA LOCKKKK!!!! SUELA LOCK IS APPLIED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS MARR SCRAMBLES!!
James Peters: Marr has nowhere to go as Ava applies more torque, pulling his head back as she wants to make the champion tap out in the center of the ring! Imagine how the headlines would be if Ava was able to obtain a submission victory over the EAW World Champion? Ripley frantically nervous at ringside as Marr has made little to none progress on moving towards the ropes!
Rich Russillo: Marr has three options, escape, tap-out, or pass out and the last two options are the last thing he needs before his championship defense against Rex McAllister! Marr uses his free arm to scratch and claw his weight to the bottom rope! However, the pressure that is being applied by Ava is too much for Marr! Marr is this close to falling asleep!
James Peters: Marr uses his trapped arm to roll Ava over! MARR DEADLIFTS AVA UP OFF THE GROUND!! BUT MARR STRUGGLES TO LIFT HIM UP AVA BRINGS HIM DOWN INTO A TRIANGLE HOLD!!! Marr has him detained in a triangle lock as Marr attempts to lift her up once again!
Rich Russillo: BUT MARR STILL UNABLE TO USE HIS STRENGTH AS AVA ROLLS HIM UP OVER AND APPLIES THE SUELA LOCK ONCE AGAIN!!! The Suela Lock is employed on the World Champion and he is in trouble! Marr needs to find a way out of this submission frenzy! Marr lifting his hand, he knows that one of the ways out of this could be a tap-out, but he doesn’t want to! Marr is inches away from the bottom rope as Ava puts every ounce of energy into this submission hold!
James Peters: ROPE BREAK!! Jordie Ripley just saved Marr from more misery as she places his foot onto the bottom rope. The referee is oblivious as Consuela stares a laser into her eyes. Marr. Marr is somehow getting up to his feet as Ava and Ripley exchange words! Ava shifts her attention back to Marr! CHARRRINNNNGG CROSSS!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: NO!!! AVA DODGES IT AND REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!!! LAAA RADILLA DE LAAA MEEERRRTTEEE!! AVA FLOORS MARR WITH THE KNEE OF DEATH, BUT RIPLEY PULLS HIM OUT OF THE RING!!! AVA WAS AN INCH AWAY FROM PINNING HIM, BUT RIPLEY SAVES HIM ONCE AGAIN!!

If Marr uses that steel chair that will result in disqualification and that will not benefit him moving into Territorial Invasion.
James Peters: Marr brings a chair into the ring with him as Ava leans forward onto the middle rope. Ava is exhausted and defenceless as Marr lifts up the steel chair! BUT THE REFEREE YANKS IT AWAY FROM HIM!!! The referee confiscates the steel chair while Ripley grabs the championship from ringside!! AND SMASHES IT ONTO THE FACE OF AVA!!!
Rich Russillo: Ripley avenging the Tope Consuela Hilo from earlier as Marr pulls Ava into the center of the ring! HE KICKS HER, HOOKS BOTH HER ARMS AND SPIKES WITH ANOTHER DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT!! THE QUEEN IS DEAD ONCE AGAIN AS MARR GOES FOR THE COVER!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( ‘Accompanied by ear-deafening boos, ‘It Ain’t Safe’ by Skepta hits through the venue speakers. Before Bella Braxton could announce the winner, Marr immediately attacks Ava! )
James Peters: CHARLIE MARR WITH THE CHAMPIONSHIP BELT TO THE BACK OF AVA’S HEAD!!! MARR TOSSES THE CHAMPIONSHIP AWAY AS HE BEGINS TO BASH HIS ELBOW INTO THE UNPROTECTED FACE OF CONSUELA ELLA AVA!! Jordie Ripley joins on the heinous assault as Ava is unable to defend herself!
Rich Russillo: IT’S REX MCALLISTER!! IT’S MARR’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP CHALLENGER AT TERRITORIAL INVASION AS HE JUMPS UP AND DRILLS MARR WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE!! A PRECISION KNEE STRIKE ONTO MARR AS HE JUMPS UP AND BLASTS RIPLEY WITH ANOTHER KNEE!!
James Peters: Ripley slides out of the ring as McAllister and Marr begin to trade strikes! McAllister overpowering the champion with a barrage of strikes as he picks Marr up! AND DRIVES HIM INTO THE CANVAS WITH AN OLYMPIC SLAM!!! Marr being overwhelmed by his upcoming challenger as he makes his way back up to his feet! MCALLISTER COMES OFF THE ROPES!! THE REX EFFECT!!
Rich Russillo: BUT MARR QUICKLY GETS OUT OF THE RING AND EVADES THE FLOAT OVER DDT!! Marr and Ripley retreat up the ramp while Rex McAllister stands tall in the center of the ring!
