Voltage 9/2/2018

 

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

Kawajai: WELCOME TO SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE! This crowd in Lincoln, Nebraska is electric! Everyone is excited and understandably so because BOY what a show we have ahead for you tonight! We have a glimpse of the present versus the future as Chris Elite takes on Xander Payne for the first time ever! Speaking of first time evers, our main event features the World Heavyweight Champion Rex McAllister taking on Prince of Phenomenal! This hasn’t been an ideal past two weeks for the Hall of Famer but a win over the champ would be a huge way to get back on track!

Nick Angel: That’s right partner this is shaping up to be another great episode of Voltage! After the events of last week I can’t help but wonder what the fallout is going to be tonight. How will Andy respond? How will Scott respond? What’s next for several elitists? Well let’s find out..

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: The following match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first…

(“Eyes on Fire” by Zed’s Dead plays and the lights dim slightly before a yellow light fills the arena. ‘Osaka’s Greatest’ Osamu Arcichida makes his way out to the ring to a warm reaction from the crowd.)

Bella Braxton: …from Osaka, Japan – weighing in at Two Hundred and Thirty-Four pounds.. OSAMU ARCICHIDA!

( ‘God’s Plan’ by Drake start playing as Vincent I. Pride comes out of the ring wearing a “Coldblood” merch t-shirt and a jacket with “God’s Plan” written on the back. )

Bella Braxton: Fom Toronto, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 280 pounds, he is “The 6ix God”, VVVVV IIIII PPPPP!

Kawajai: VIP is cocky as ever coming off of his win last week, defeating two opponents in a triple-threat match in quick fashion. We’ll see if he can match that success this week.

(‘We Are’ by Hollywood Undead bumps through the speakers as Jason Ryan slowly makes his way to the ring. )

Bella Braxton: From Billings, Montana, weighing in 245 pounds, the son of Satan, JASONNNN RYANNNNNN!

Angel: Here comes the man who was defeated last week by VIP with a discus punch – he looks like he’s ready for some revenge.

(‘Walk with Me’ by Jeffrey Sciullo plays and the lights go out before coming back to reveal Kronos standing at the entrance ramp with his arms crossed, accompanied by his manager Hera. They begin to make their way to the ring.)

Kawajai: Well, Nick, here we go… this match is officially underway. All four men are in each corner of the ring, looking closely at each other. VIP makes his way to the middle of the ring, looking at his three opponents… HE SPITS IN OSAMU ARCICHIDA’S FACE! OSAMU… WRAPS HIM UP IN THE OSAMU LOCK! HE’S GONNA TAP…

Angel: NO… Jason Ryan breaks it up, saving the win. Jason Ryan is hammering away at Osamu while Kronos takes advantage of VIP’s predicament with a few stomps to the chest.

Kawajai: What a start to this match! Jason Ryan helps Osamu to his feet; he steps back a bit… SUPER KICK! Osamu goes flying out of the ring from the impact of that kick. Ryan wastes no time now as he grabs Kronos by the back of his mask… inverted DDT! Ryan is going to work right now. A quick cover!

ONE…

TWO…

Angel: A quick kickout from Kronos. LOOK OUT! VIP LANDS A HUGE LEG DROP ON BOTH JASON RYAN AND KRONOS! Kronos rolls out of the ring, looking to get out of harm’s way. VIP doesn’t give Jason Ryan anytime to recover, however, putting his head between his legs, setting him up…

Kawajai: VIP is cocky tonight, doing the hotline bling dance with Ryan… OH! OSAMU ARCICHIDA COMES OFF THE TOP ROPE WITH A DROP KICK TO THE CHEST OF VIP! OSAMU LIFTS HIM UP… NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! HE GOES FOR THE COVER, COULD THIS BE IT?

ONE!

TWO!

Kawajai: No! Kronos makes it back in the ring in time to break up the cover and now he’s pounding away on Osamu Arcichida. A left, a right! Osamu goes for a kick, but Kronos catches his leg. DRAGON WHIP! OSAMU CONNECTED… WAIT, VIP JUST TOSSED OSAMU OUT OF THE RING. HE’S COVERING KRONOS!

ONE!

TW-

Angel: Quick kick out by Kronos again, more damage is going to need to be done to put him away. Jason Ryan is now back to his feet in the corner. Kronos whips VIP into the same corner, making a human sandwich. He runs across the ring… AND CONNECTS WITH A CROSSBODY. Jason Ryan is knocked silly by that one. OH MY, IT LOOKS LIKE KRONOS IS GOING FOR ONE MORE. HE RUNS ACROSS THE RING…

Kawajai: OUT OF NO WHERE! OSAMU ARCICHIDA LANDS A HUGE SUPER KICK ON KRONOS. WHAT’S THIS?! OSAMU SUPER KICKS VIP OUT OF THE RING…

Angel: Jason Ryan stands to his feet. OSAMU SLAPS HIM! HE ROLLS HIM UP… IT’S THE OSAMU LOCK AGAIN!

Kawajai: JASON SCREAMS IN PAIN AS OSAMU WRENCHES ON THIS INVERTED KNEE BAR AND IT LOOKS LIKE… HE TAPS, JASON TAPS, OSAMU IS THE WINNER!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(Osamu’s hand is raised by the referee as VIP, half way into the ring, pounds on the mat in disappointment as Jason Ryan holds his knee in agony. ‘Zed is Dead’ plays over the speakers as the crowd cheers Osamu’s win.)

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER….. OSAMU ARCICHIDA!!!!

Kawajai: I am impressed Nick! Osamu fresh off of defeating the New Breed Champion last week defeats three other competitors. This is a man I can see being very successful if he can keep this momentum going.

Nick Angel: I couldn’t agree more. Osamu has the look and poise of a future star, but does he have the consistency? That’s yet to be determined, however great win for the up and comer!

(Camera transitions to backstage where Andy Dominguez can be seen on the phone in his office as a loud bang is heard causing him to jump up and drop the phone. His expression changes from shocked to furious as it’s Matt Daniels kicking his door open.)

Andy: What the hell are you doing?

Matt: I’ve been calling you all week to no avail. I told you I wanted to discuss business.

Andy: First of all you got some nerve barging in my office like I won’t have you mopping floors to make a living. Who do you think you are? That stunt you pulled last week has you feeling real tough huh? Well guess what, I still own you. You still do as I say, and you’re going to face the consequences for that real soon, just like your buddy Scott did.

Matt: Funny you bring that up because that’s why I’m here. We both know that this situation we have going on is never going to end. You’re never going to be happy with me here and I’m simply done laying down and taking your orders. This friction will only lead to fire, or one of us being fired so to speak.

Andy: I do the firing, you take the orders.

Matt: Yeah unless you wanna put your money where your mouth is and raise the stakes. Solidify the dominance of The Enterprise, if you truly believe in your boys.

Andy: I wholeheartedly believe in my boys but what’s it to you?

Matt: Then I’m officially issuing a challenge.

Andy: Hahaha, please. I don’t cave into the demands of peons.

Matt: Are you scared? Come on let’s do it. You assemble a three man team, I assemble my three man team and we go at it at Territorial Invasion. Team Daniels vs Team Enterprise, your team wins you get all of the power, my team wins I get it.

Andy: Absolutely no-

???: Deal.

(Lethal Consequences nonchalantly walks into the office past Matt Daniels.)

Matt: Seriously?

LC: Yep. Deal.

Andy: John what are you doi-

LC: The Enterprise got this under control, don’t sweat it. Have some faith in your partners, Blayde and I alone will do whoever Matt can find dirty.

Matt: Well I was hoping you’d accept, I’ve already found someone. My team captain is the man who’s already kicked the both of you guys asses, Devan Dubian. Good luck.

(Matt confidently walks off as LC looks unbothered and Andy looks flustered.)

(Commercial Break)

(Voltage comes back on air as “Odee” by A Boogie hits to a huge pop as Chris Elite makes his way to the ring, as focused as can be. He makes his way up the ramp slapping hands with fans before entering the ring.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL, introducing first …from Brooklyn, New York – weighing in at Two Hundred and Ten pounds.. CHRIS, ELITE!

Kawajai: It’s been a little while since Chris Elite lost his EAW World Heavyweight Championship, but that doesn’t make him any less of a star than before. In fact, he must be even more focused after losing it.

Nick Angel: I agree, I’m sure Chris is more determined than ever to get it back and this match is just the start of that journey for him.

(“It Follows” by Cane Hill starts playing as the crowd erupts into boos as Xander Payne makes his way to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent … from Brampton, Ontario, Canada – weighing in at Two Hundred and Fifty-Five pounds … he is the NEW BREED CHAMPION!… XANDER PAYNE!

Kawajai: The New Breed GOD! Xander Payne must be twice as focused as Elite, after losing to Osamu Arcichida, in his debut match!

Nick Angel: Certainly a smudge on Xander’s run but it served as a lesson learn to never underestimate your opponents no matter how big or small you think they are. Chris Elite is someone of a way higher stature so I’m sure Xander won’t make that same mistake this week.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Nick Angel: Both men here are focused, and have something to prove to each other. Chris Elite, the former EAW world champion, and Xander Payne, the current New Breed Champion. Chris Elite must want to prove that he still can go out there, and beat his competition, and Xander Payne, needs this win for a momentum boost, before his upcoming match at Territorial Invasion.

Kawajai: “And now a collar and elbow tie-up, but Xander Payne uses his strength to push Elite into the corner. The referee separates them, but Payne, slaps Elite in the face! And Elite, runs at Xander Payne, ducks a clothesline, and hits him with the HeadShot! Elite now, runs the ropes, and hits the kneeling Xander with an Axe Kick! Chris now, goes to the top rope, but Payne swiftly pushes his legs, dropping him right into the ring! Xander now, picks up Elite, throws him into through the ropes! Xander now, just dragging Elite, showing off his face to the crowd, but he throws him back into the ring, and hits a huge running senton on him! The cover!

ONE!
TWO-

Nick Angel: Chris Elite manages to get his shoulder up. Payne, picks him back up, and pushes him off the ropes, Pop Up Powe- No! Chris Elite! Hits Payne with a Hurricanrana! Now Elite, runs off the ropes, but gets hit with a huge lariat by Payne- Wait! Elite ducked the Lariat! A second Headshot! Elite now, runs the ropes, and the Bicycle Kne- No! Xander Payne, catches Elite’s leg, and a huge Lariat! Dropping Chris Elite! And now a Somersault leg drop! He isn’t done, as he runs the ropes, and a senton! But Elite! Getting the knees up! But that only hurt himself as much as it did Xander Payne! Elite though, rolls up Xander, but now a huge bicycle knee to Xander! Elite to the top rope! Frog splash- No! Xander Payne moved, and grabbed Elites leg! Figure four leg lock! Right in the middle of the ring!

Kawajai: I can only imagine the pain Chris Elite is having to endure, as he is crawling towards the ropes. But Xander let’s go of it, and instead grabs Elite’s left leg, and now has an Ankle lock locked in! This is bad for Elite, but he turns around, and kicks Xander away, sending him into the turnbuckles. Elite now, getting back to his feet, but his left leg is hurt after the ankle lock. But Elite now, has his sights set Xander, who is seated in the corner. He charges at him, but Xander Payne avoids the double knees! Chris Elite’s knees went crashing right into the turnbuckles! A rollup now by Xander!

ONE-

Nick Angel: Elite kicks out, and is immediately met with a Superkick! Xander Payne now, going for another cover!

ONE!
TWO!
TH-

Nick Angel: And Elite kicks out again! Xander Payne, has a smile on his face. He knows he is in control, as he grabs Elite’s left leg again. This time, just stomping away at it! Xander now, putting Elite in the corner, in a tree of woe position. He is backing up, don’t tell me.. Xander charges at Elite, Cannonball! But Elite, having to put his knees out again! Xander is hurt, but this is doing even more damage to Chris Elite’s leg! But Elite now, going to the second rope, and a 44 Bulldog off the second rope! That shotgun dropkick, right to the back of the kneeling Xander Payne’s head! Elite to the top rope now, and a Bionic Stomp! Right onto Xander Payne! But Elite is not done! He runs the ropes, and hits a beautiful People’s Moonsault onto Xander! The cover now!

ONE!
TWO-

Kawajai: But Xander Payne, manages to get his shoulder up! Elite now, feeling the effects of this match so far, and is holding his left leg in pain. Elite now, is going to the corner, and is thinking about doing something to put Xander away. Elite charges at Xander, with a huge Bicycle Knee, followed by an Elite Cutter! Elite now to the top rope, Shooting Star Press- No! Xander moved! But Elite, tried landing on his feet, but collapsed because of his hurt leg! Chop block by Xander! Right into Elite’s left leg! Xander now, attempts a senton onto his leg, but Elite moves out of the way, and does a running Shooting Star onto him! Elite now picking up Xander, and is attempting a huge German Suplex! He gets it! He rolls through, into the Electric chair, but no! His leg gave out! Xander now turns around, and picks Elite up for a powerbomb, but Elite grabs the ropes! Hurricanrana! Throwing Payne outside the ring! Elite to the top rope now! 450 splash to Xander Payne, outside the ring! Chris runs back to the top rope! Frog Splas- No! Xander Payne catches him! GO HOME DRIVER!! ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!! Xander throws Elite back into the ring, and gets the cover!

ONE!
TWO!
TW-

Nick Angel: And Chris Elite somehow! Getting his shoulders up! Xander picks him up, and throws him to the ropes, Elite bounces off, and a schoolboy rollup by Elite, into a SuperKick, but with the left leg! Xander, still on his knees! Elite runs into the ropes, but Xander, Pop Up- No, Elite jumps over him, but hesitates due to landing on his left leg! He runs at Xander, but right into a huge Lariat! But Elite! Ducked under the Lariat! Enzuigiri! Elite now runs the ropes! And Xander! Back body drop! Elite has been tossed right outside the ring!

Referee: One!..Two!…Three!..Four!

Nick Angel: Xander now throws Elite back into the ring. He runs at him for a clothesline, but Elite grabs his arm! He turns him around, and just slaps him! Right in his face! Xander is still standing! The Box Office Smash! Xander falls onto the ropes! And he bounces off, with a Superkick of his own! And both men collapse! Xander though, rolls out the ring, managing to get to his feet. He now climbs to the top rope, where he waits for Elite to get to his feet. He does, and Xander jumps, but another Box Office Smash by Elite! He now tries to pick him up for a Sit-Out Powerbomb! He can’t, he can’t lift Xander! Xander collapses out of the ring! Elite had it won!

Referee: One!…Two!…Three!..Four!..Five!

Kawajai: Elite goes outside to grab Xander, but Xander hits a huge forearm on Elite! Both men, roll into the ring, but Xander uses the ropes to get up before him. Now, he picks him up, and drops Elite with a huge Powerbomb! He isn’t done, as he picks him up for a second! He hits it, and picks him up again! But Elite, rolls him up, and a Bionic Stomp onto the grounded Xander! Elite now, picking Xander up, getting ready for a Face Value, but Xander drops him with a Spinebuster! Xander now, putting a headlock onto Elite, trying to slow down the pace.

Xander Payne: I AM THE NEW BREED GOD! YOU DON’T MEAN ANYTHING! YOU ARE NOTHING TO ME!

Kawajai: Payne, just shouting at Elite, with him in the headlock. Elite, trying to get to his feet, but is struggling with his left leg, but still, Elite manages to pick him up, and drops him with a huge Back Suplex! Xander is in the corner, and Elite, just stomping away at Xander! Xander is now leaning on the bottom rope, and Chris runs the ropes and lands a huge Bicycle knee on the back of Xanders head! Elite now, attempts another German Suplex, and gets it! Chris isn’t finished yet, as he hits a second! Chris picks him back up, and attempts a third, but Xander drags down the referee, and Low blows Chris! Xander now, has an evil look in his eye, AS HE HITS THE PAYNEKILLER, BUT ON THE REFEREE!!!! THE REF IS OUT!!! Xander is now grabbing a chair, and is hitting Elite’s leg over and over with it! He now opens the chair, setting it onto Elite’s leg. Xander now, going on the top rope. Oh no, Xande jumps, and HITS A HUGE SENTON!! Right onto Elite’s left leg, as the chair just crushes it!

Nick Angel: Payne is still not finished yet. He goes outside, and takes Elite with him. He picks him up, and drops him with a huge Powerbomb on the steps!, He drags him back into the ring, but Elite! A huge Enziguri to Payne! Just as the referee is finally getting back to his feet! The 5 Borough Combo onto Payne! Elite runs the ropes, right into a Pop Up Powerbomb by Payne! That’s it! Elite is out! Wait, no! He picks him back up! THE PAYNEKILLER!!! In the middle of the ring! That’s it! The cover by Payne!

ONE!
TWO!
THREE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, the New Breed Champion! XANDER, PAYNE!!!

Kawajai: Talk about a dirty win! Chris Elite with a huge disappointing loss to our New Breed Champion who had to resort to desperate measures in order to ensure victory!

Nick Angel: A win is a win Kawa, Xander learned from last weeks mistake and knew better than to let this opportunity slip. He secured the win. Chris Elite does not look happy here, he’s going to have to go back to the drawing board to figure something out really quick.

(Noah Reigner is seen with Cameron Church and Evelyn Ridley sitting on crates backstage as they are in the middle of a convo.)

Evelyn: So what do you think about our new world champ Noah?

Noah: Great guy. I’d love to face him one day.

Cameron: You could literally face him any time you want.

Noah: That’s true. But with these briefcases you never know what opportunity or moment may present itself to you.

Evelyn: Why do you think I asked you?… Look Noah, I think you need to start thinking about what’s next. You defeated Lars, your briefcase is intact but what makes you think that more guys won’t continue to come after you and try to pull the same thing that he did and take it from you? Kill two birds with one stone, cash that baby in and become a world champion.

Noah: Eve… do you know my win/loss record? I’d like to think that regardless of who steps up, the odds are in my favor. You don’t think?

Evelyn: You’re right, I just think it’s time to become world champ.

Noah: It’s a marathon, not a sprint. When the timing is right I’ll do what I have to do, that could be next week, or months from now for all I know.

???: Did I hear somebody say something about a win/loss record?

(The trio tenses up as Noah gets off of the crate to confront the voice, it turns out to be Devan Dubian who’s appearance solicits a loud pop from the crowd.)

Dubian: (Putting his arms up in a surrendering motion) I come in peace. I couldn’t help but hear your convo from down the hall and… I thought I’d add myself to the conversation.

Evelyn: You can see yourself ou-

Noah: Hold on Evelyn. What the hell do you want from me?

Dubian: Well listen. I know you mentioned your almost flawless record but the ironic thing about it is that the one flaw in it comes from me. I know that pisses you off to think about but at the same time I know deep down somewhere in there you can’t help but respect it. You respect the fact that all of these men who have stepped up to the great Noah Reigner have failed to best you, except for one.. and that’s me.

Noah: What are you getting at?

Dubian: As much as you respect it, the competitor in you also wants to right that wrong. You have a singles win over me, I have one over you, why not go for a third one to determine who the better man truly is?

Noah: You don’t have to ask me twice. I’m game.

Dubian: I thought you’d be, but there’s a condition.

Noah: Here we go… I guess I should’ve figured.

Dubian: I couldn’t help but overhear you talking about life after Lars and what’s next for Noah as you patiently wait for the opportunity to cash your briefcase in and I have just the thing for you.

Noah: Go on..

Dubian: I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I’ve found myself in a situation with The Enterprise. They’ve constantly tried to make not only my life a living hell, but our Commissioner Matt Daniels as well. He proposed the idea of a Team Daniels vs Team Enterprise match at Territorial Invasion and guess what? I’m the captain. After competing against you several times over the past few months I respect your abilities and I think you would be perfect to join our team and rid Voltage of the filth that plagues it.

Noah: So let me get this right. You need my help to take down The Enterprise at Territorial Invasion and the incentive is a rematch against you?

Dubian: Sure I guess. I’d offer you a world title shot but you clearly don’t need that. I’ll throw in this bonus, Jackson Blayde is a member of The Enterprise. Remember him? You thought you ended his career but instead he bounced back to spite you and is using his corporate ties to ascend to heights he never would have otherwise. How long do you think it is before he gets to you for revenge and screws you out of holding that briefcase or something? You better strike him first before he strikes you. So how’s it sound?

(Noah and the gang all look to be pondering and considering Dub’s points.)

Noah: I’ll let you know soon.

(Devan Dubian nods as he walks off leaving Noah looking on.)
( DING! DING! DING! )

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! And it is you co-main event of the night!

( ‘Shook Ones’ by Mobb Deep blasts through the speakers as Scott Diamond comes out on the stage making his way to the ring. )

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Long Island, New York, weighing in at 280 pounds, SCOOOOOT DIAMOOOOOND!

Kawajai: A very interesting match we have here tonight ladies and gents, Scott Diamond, a destructive force of nature against a mastermind being Lethal Consequences, this is surely going to be great!

( ‘Blackout’ by Company Flow starts playing as Lethal Consequences slowly comes out accompanied by Jackson Blayde. The crowd erupts in huge boo’s but both of them smirk and make their way to the ring. )

Angel: The Enterprise looking confident, but they must be aware who they are fighting. Scott Diamond is a serious threat to be worried about. Let’s see how this match will go.

( DING! DING! DING! )

Kawajai: The match has started AND SCOTT DIAMOND RIGHT AWAY USING HIS UPPER BODY TO CRUSH LC TO THE TURNBUCKLE AND OFF HE GOES WITH THE SHOULDER SMASHES ALL OVER THE MIDSECTION OF LC. Scott backs out as LC falls on his knees holding his belly in pain. The damage has been done already and that’s why you never play with Scott. Once he catches you, the consequences are serious. Scott grabs LC by the head, gets him up AND A KNEE THRUST TO THE MID SECTION. ANOTHER ONE AND A LAST ONE TO HURT LC EVEN MORE AS HE TURNS HIM AROUND AND CONNECTS WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX ON LC. Jackson Blayde slapping the mat yelling at LC to get up, as Scott gives a scary look to Blayde making a few steps ahead but Blayde steps back.

Angel: HOWEVER LC WITH A STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF SCOTT DIAMOND AND LC BOUNCES OF THE ROPES TO CONNECTS WITH A FLYING DROPKICK SENDING SCOTT OUT OF THE RING! Blayde immediately gets closer to Scott and the referee tells him to back out. LC gets out of the ring PUNCHING SCOTT ALL OVER THE HEAD AND SPINE AND LC WITH AN EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!

Ref: One. Two. Three.

Angel: Scott is down and Lethal Consequences continues the assault stomping him all over the back. LC lets Scott get on his knees… KNEE LIFT BY LC! OUCH, DIAMOND’S JAW ALMOST BROKE!

Ref: Four. Five. Six.

Angel: LC admires his work as he smiles looking at the fallen Scott Diamond, but he’s not over yet. He helps Diamond get on his feet, SLAPS HIM AND CONNECTS WITH A DIAMOND CUTTER ON THE OUTSIDE! OH MY GOD! LC IS OUT OF HIS MIND! HE HURT SCOTT DIAMOND BADLY! THE REFEREE IS ABOUT TO COUNT HIM OUT!

Ref: Seven. Eight. Nine. Te-

Kawajai: LC gets on the ring holding the referee by the shoulders telling him not to count him out, BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE JACKSON BLAYDE WITH THE BLAYDE RUNNER ON SCOTT DIAMOND! THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE ANYTHING! WHAT A PAIR OF EVIL GENIUSES! THEY TOOK SCOTT OUT AND REFEREE SEEMS CONFUSED! Jackson Blayde backs out with his hands raised up as Lethal Consequences rolls out of the ring yet again. LC gets Diamond up and drives him through the barricade… NO, SCOTT HOLDS ON AND GIVES LC A NICE ELBOW AND SCOTT WITH THE BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX ON THE BARRICADE! LC IS HURT, HIS SPINE LANDED HARD ON THE BARRICADE AND HE HOLDS HIS BACK IN PAIN! SCOTT NOW TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO BLAYDE AS BLAYDE RUNS TOWARDS SCOTT BUT SCOTT WITH A CLOTHESLINE TURNING BLAYDE INSIDE OUT AND SCOTT UNLEASHES ON BLAYDE WITH THOSE LETHAL FOREARMS! SCOTT HAS LOST HIS MIND AS HE MAKES BLAYDE PAY FOR WHAT HE DID TO HIM! SCOTT CONTINUES THE ASSAULT LIKE A MAD MAN!

Angel: I SEE BLOOD ON SCOTT’S FOREARM! OH MY GOD, JACKSON BLAYDE IS BUSTED OPEN! SCOTT REALLY MADE HIM PAY, SOMEBODY STOP HIM FOR THE SAKE OF GOD! BLAYDE MIGHT NOT BE RECOGNISABLE AFTER THIS!

Kawajai: But there comes LC to break the monstrous attack, BUT SCOTT POWERS HIM AWAY AND GETS LC UP… POWERSLAM! REST IN PEACE LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!

Angel: BUT IT DOESN’T END YET! SCOTT DIDN’T RELEASE LC AS NOW HE GETS HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS… OH MY, IS HE REALLY GOING FOR THAT?!… VORTEX ON LC DROPPING HIM ON BLAYDE! OH MY GOD WHAT HAVE WE JUST WITNESSED? SCOTT DIAMOND JUST TOOK OUT BOTH LC AND BLAYDE WITH ONE MOVE! LET’S LOOK AT THAT ONCE AGAIN!

( Replay flashes through the screen as Scott Diamond hitting the Vortex on LC dropping him on Blayde is shown again. )

Kawajai: Just like you said before, Nick, Scott Diamond is a serious threat. Look at what he just did! He caused a massacre out here tonight. I can’t imagine the amount of pain The Enterprise must be going through right now.

Ref: One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six. Seven. Eight.

Kawajai: Scott gets LC back into the ring, irish whipping him into the corner AND A SHOULDER THRUST TO LC BLASTING HIM DEAD INTO THE FLOOR! SCOTT DIAMOND ADMIRES THE WORK HE DID, LAUGHING DIABOLICALLY LIKE A PSYCHOPATH! LC crawling his way to the turnbuckle, slowly getting up on pain, as Scott Diamond gets in position in the other corner. LC is on his feet, turns around making a few steps ahead unconscious… DIAMOND’S EDGE! SCOTT JUST PLANTED LETHAL CONSEQUENCES DOWN. IT’S OVER! THERE IS THE COVER!

Ref: ONEEE! TWOOO! THRE-

Angel: LC JUST KICKED OUT! HOW IS HE STILL ALIVE FOR THE SAKE OF GOD? JUST END IT HERE LC, STOP THE SUFFERING. Scott can’t believe LC kicked out and now he delivers a couple of stomps to the chest of LC, now taking a break from the beating he gave The Enterprise, SPEAKING OF WHICH JACKSON BLAYDE IS ON THE APRON YELLING AT SCOTT! Scott gives him a surprised look but then it all changes when he furiously charges towards him, but Blayde gets of the apron and makes a few steps back.

Jackson Blayde *off mic*: Stop it you fucking loser!

Kawajai: DIAMOND IS CHASING BLAYDE, BLAYDE MAKING CIRCLES AROUND THE RING RUNNING FOR HIS LIFE, BLAYDE GETS IN THE RING FOLLOWED BY SCOTT, BUT BLAYDE SLIDES OUT OF THE RING, HOWEVER SCOTT CAN’T BECAUSE LC JUST CONNECTED THE DIAMOND CUTTER ON DIAMOND! DIAMOND GETS ON HIS FEET DAZED BY THAT DIAMOND CUTTER AND WHAT AN IRONIC NAME THE MOVE HAS! LC GRABS SCOTT AND LIFTS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS… G T S! IT CONNECTS! CAN THIS BE OVER?

Ref: ONE!!! TWOOOO!!! THREEEEE!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, LETHAAAAAAL CONSEQUENCEEEEES!

Angel: What a way to win the match, out of nowhere with a diamond cutter followed by a GTS, LC just got the win by the help of his partner, Jackson Blayde.

( Blayde and LC are shown celebrating in the ring as shortly after they turn their attention at the floored Scott Diamond. )

Kawajai: Oh no, don’t do this. LC AND BLAYDE UNLEASH AN ASSAULT ON SCOTT DIAMOND, TAKING REVENGE FOR WHAT HAPPENED EARLY IN THE MATCH! LC HOLDS SCOTT ON HIS KNEES AND JACKSON BLAYDE WITH THE BLAYDE RUNNER! THIS IS HORRIBLE TO WATCH! NOW BLAYDE IS HOLDING SCOTT AND LC IS READY TO TAKE OFF!

( “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by Foo Fighters blasts through the speakers as Devan Dubian and Noah Reigner rush their way to the ring. )

Angel: IT LOOKS LIKE WE GOT NOAH’S ANSWER! IT’S DEVAN DUBIAN AND NOAH REIGNER! BOTH OF THEM FIGHTING WITH THE ENTERPRISE, NOAH GOES AFTER BLAYDE, DUB THROWS LC OUT OF THE RING! NOAH IRISH WHIPS BLAYDE TO THE CORNER AS DUB HELPS SCOTT GET ON HIS FEET, MAKING SURE LC DOESN’T COME BACK AGAIN. NOAH STOMPS BLAYDE ALL OVER THE PLACE AND BLAYDE FALLS DOWN HOLDING ON THE CORNER. NOAH GRABS HIS CASH IN THE CASE BRIEFCASE AND CHARGES TOWARDS BLAYDE WITH IT… HE MISSES, LC AT THE VERY LAST SECOND GOT BLAYDE OUT OF THE RING AND NOW BOTH OF THEM ARE RUNNING AWAY!

Kawajai: Yet again LC and Jackson Blayde managed to save themselves from Reigner and Dubian. The Enterprise with a pissed off look on their face get out of the arena and Blayde is still covered in blood after what Scott did to him. This surely won’t end here!

(LC and Blayde talk smack from down the ramp at Noah and Dub who talk smack from in the ring, they continue to go at it as the camera fades to black.)

(Commercial Break)

(“4th Dimension” by Kids See Ghost hits to a loud mixed reaction as Lars Grier makes his way out to the ring alongside Maximus Grier, he is sporting a “The Crooked Man” t-shirt as he makes his way up the ramp with a focused look on his face.)

Kawajai: Lars Grier defeated the Prince of Phenomenal last week for an opportunity to become the number one contender to the Openweight Championship. After a disappointing loss where he failed to capture the Cash in the Vault briefcase from Noah Reigner that was a helluva way to bounce back!

Nick Angel: You’re right Kawa, this is a rejuvenated Lars and you can just tell by the extra pep in his step that it’s not a matter of “if”… but rather “when” this man finally gets the moment he’s spent the last year working so hard to achieve.

(Lars and Maximus enters the ring and are handed mics as the music dies down and they stand in the center beginning to speak.)

Lars: They say when one door closes, another one opens. I say, when one door closes, you just kick that shit down and take what belongs to you. That’s what I did last week. Fresh off of a disappointing loss to Noah Reigner who couldn’t even survive me in the first place without help from his bitch, I was given another opportunity. An opportunity that I shouldn’t have even had to qualify for considering the details behind my CITV match, but nonetheless, I played the little game and I won. Now this is the time where Lars Grier can finally take what’s his and become the star I was destined to become the moment I stepped foot into this company.

Maximus: I don’t think you guys truly understand the magnitude of this. Even growing up as little boys Lars was always considered the golden child, the one most likely to succeed and do great things in life. Everything just came natural to him no matter what it was. It was me who used that as motivation to become successful for myself and open up Maximus Inc. When it came to wrestling it was no different. Lars took this company by storm as one of the brightest up and comers as he was considered a prodigy, and the next up for 2018. Well the time is now.

Lars: 2018 so far has been met with setback after setback. From disappointing at King of Elite in a losing effort against Jamie O’Hara, to losing again at Brooklyn Heights, and then the downward spiral that would follow it including shortcomings against Ahren Fournier and Noah Reigner. But here’s the thing, they didn’t deter me, they only motivated me to keep pushing and go harder and here I am now… with the ultimate opportunity, and this time I won’t let it slip. Knock me down and I’ll get up each and every time. I’m not going anywhere but to the TOP.

Maximus: Where you were destined to be from the jump.

Lars: I understand my opponent has different plans. Ms. Andrea Valentine, you’ve had quite the breakout year making a name for yourself and becoming the Openweight Champion after defeating three men at Pain for Pride in the upset of the year. I can’t take away from what you have been able to accomplish thus far but what I will say is that the road ends here. It was a good run and you definitely did your thing by displaying the girl power that EAW loves to push to the forefront. I’m sure there’s dozens of little girls out there looking at you feeling inspired from your performances as of late, but Lars Grier refuses to be another example and name to add to your little list. But you know what, I hear Andrea Valentine is actually in the building tonight scoping me out, so I’d like to formally invite her to come out to the ring right now, as I’d like to have a word with her…

Maximus: I don’t think she’s ready for that Lars. This is a far cry from Empire, she’s not in her comf-

(“Roll With Me” by Charli XCX hits to a loud pop as Andrea Valentine makes her way up the ramp sporting her Openweight Championship, she slaps hands with the fans on her way down before entering the ring.)

Kawajai: Well Andrea certainly looks excited to be here tonight, she doesn’t seem to be phased at all. Voltage may not be Empire but she looks right at home.. much to the surprise of the Griers who look along with disdain.

(Andrea stands before Lars and Maximus with a confident look on her face.)

Andrea: Well…. I’m here.

Lars: I see. You got a lot of balls kid. I respect it, but that doesn’t mean I’m gonna go easy on you come Territorial Invasion. I’ve fought my whole career for this moment and you’re the only thing standing in front of it. So you know what I’m going to do when the time comes? I’m going to run right through you like a freight train. It won’t be anything personal, I respect your will to compete and your bravery but… you’re out of your league now.

Andrea: You know, for the past few months every since Pain for Pride season hit and I was named as a qualifier for the Openweight Championship match, I’ve found myself in situations against several men just like you. I’ve gone back and forth on the mic, in the ring, these guys telling me how they won’t go easy on me as if I’m supposed to thank them for their generosity. Yet time and time again the result has remained the same. Andrea Valentine standing tall, victorious. I’ll admit, at first I was a bit flustered, I had never faced men on the level that I eventually would come Pain for Pride. Then Pain for Pride happened and I showed that not only could I keep up with the men, but I could beat the men. And you know what happened after that? I kept the momentum pushing. I faced a man with a stature similar to yours, he thought he could intimidate me with his size and his physicality but in the end it was me who prevailed, once again. So what makes you any different? You know who else said it was “their time to shine” while standing in front of me? Hurricane Hawk, TLA, Andrei Sokolova, Terry Chambers.. so yes Lars, unfortunately your name WILL be added to that list and I’ll be one step closer to doing what you WON’T do, and that’s becoming a world champion.

Lars: There’s nothing more attractive in a woman than confidence and I must say you display a whole lot of it. I respect that, you not only talk the talk but you walk the walk. You back up your words, except for when it’s against Daisy Thrash but nonetheless, all the other times… right on the money! The REVOLT champions thought they’d trade in their gold for another piece of gold but you had other plans. Terry Chambers thought this was his time to finally win gold in EAW after five long years of waiting for his moment, you had other plans. What you’ll soon learn though is when I deal with women, I’M the one who takes charge and I make the plans, so it’s going to go MY WAY. You’ll also learn that I am not fucking Terry Chambers who’s a career underachiever and I’m not any of those REVOLT champs who couldn’t hold a candle to the greatest one of them all, my brother Maximus. For one, Hurricane Hawk hasn’t been shit since 2012 and pinning him is about as impressive as beating a snail in a race. And you got him with a surprise rollup, do better sis. TLA is another underachieving bum who will never win the big one no matter how hard he tries, congrats you beat another person known for coming up short when it actually matters. Then there’s Andrei Sokolova, the man who hasn’t amounted to shit since coming to EAW and still living off of his little run in REVOLT, basically an unproven commodity, not impressed. I’m not like any of those guys, I’m a sure thing in the prime of my career, and you? You’re going to find that out first hand.

Andrea: Am I? We’re actually a lot alike in a way. Similar paths that eventually go in different direction. For example, I came into this company and I eventually impressed the suits to the point where I was being considered in conversations as a person who should be one to lookout for in the future. You had the same situation. It’s how I managed to find myself in the Openweight match and it’s how you managed to get all of those world title shots. Where we go in a different direction is the fact that while I succeeded in my shot, you failed. You’re gonna fail again against me, then you’re going to get another opportunity for something else and you’re going to drop the ball for that, it’s going to be wash rinse repeat until management realizes you’re a waste of time and a waste of talent that failed to work hard. That’s why I had to chuckle when you mentioned TLA’s shortcomings, you and him might as well be cut from the same cloth.

(Lars’ expression changes to a visibly frustrated one as Maximus tries to calm him down)

Lars: Look honey I don’t know if you’ve been paying attention to Voltage over the past two months, but I have absolutely no problem slapping the shit out of a female who gets out of line. You’re no different. So I’d watch my mouth. Did you watch Crossfire? Or were you too busy still recovering from that asswhooping Daisy gave you. I had that match WON after putting Noah through a flaming table and that BITCH Evelyn Ridley screwed me over.

(Lars gets closer to the face of Andrea as he looks directly into her eyes.)

Lars: And I’ll be damned if I let another bitch cross me again.

(Andrea Valentine slaps Lars hard across the face.)

Kawajai: Uh oh.

(Lars holds his face after the slap for several seconds before removing his hands from his face, he looks back intensely at Andrea before his expression changes to sarcastic smile. He winks at Andrea and drops the mic, rolling out of the ring with Maximus.)

(“Roll With Me” picks back up as Andrea looks at Lars from the ring who is backing up the ramp with Maximus looking back at Andrea. They exchange taunts before Andrea stands on the top turnbuckle holding up her title as the crowd cheers.)

Kawajai: What a face to face! Both parties made excellent points. Me personally I just can’t wait to see how this all pans out, will Andrea continue overcoming the odds stacked against her? Will Lars finally reach what he feels is his destiny and grasp what he’s been clawing at all 2018? Stay tuned for Territorial Invasion! Up next we have our main event of the evening. Rex vs POP, it’s gonna be a great one!

(A recap of Rex McAllister, Charlie Marr, & Daryl Kinkade capturing their championships at Crossfire is shown. It then shows them forming team Voltage for Territorial Invasion before ending and transitioning back to the ring.)

( DING! DING! DING! )

Bella Braxton: The following main event is scheduled for one fall!

( ‘”Still Unbroken” Lynyrd Skynyrd blasts through the speaker as Rex McAllister walks onto the stage with his championship around his waist alongside MarrKade )

Bella Braxton: Introducing first! From Sea Isle, New Jersey, weighing in at 238 pounds…… REXXXXXXX MMCCCCCCCCAAAAAAALLLLLISTER!!!!!

Kawajai: We are about to witness an amazing main event between Rex McAllister and Prince Of Phenomenal. The Prince versus Master, who knows what we could see tonight?

Nick Angel: Rex is walking into this battle of the ages with the EAW World Heavyweight Championship around his waist, which who he defeated Chris Elite to win it. Rex lost the EAW World Championship to Diamond Cage, but he managed to bounce back by defeating Chris Elite for the championship.

( After posing on the top rope, Rex hops off while “If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray blares throughout the arena. Prince Of Phenomenal poses on the ramp, walking down the ramp and yelling ‘It’s my time’ )

Kawajai: You hear that? It is his time! After week of trying to grab the attention of Chris Elite and Rex McAllister, he finally has an opportunity to take the spotilight.

Nick Angel: Prince Of Phenomenal is a hall of famer, he possesses an illustrious and decorated career. If Prince Of Phenomenal walks out of here with a victory over Rex, that could present a future opportunity for Rex’s championship title.

Kawajai: If Rex picks up a victory over POP, he could say he defeated a hall of famer. Both men can benefit from this match.

( As POP walks over to his corner, he stares into the eyes of Rex before the bell rings )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Kawajai: This match is underway! Both men quick on their feet, looking for an opening. They lock up in a collar-and-elbow tie-up and ends with Rex locking POP with a headlock. POP now trying to get out of the hold, sending shoulder thrusts to the midsection of Rex. Rex refuses to give up his hold as POP is on one knee, slowly fading out!
