(EAW intro plays.)
(A recap of last week’s Voltage begins, starting with the conversation with Voltage’s Brand Warfare team, where they gain the idea to have Minerva join them as the final member. The recap then shows the singles match between newcomers Azrael and Franko Betoli, where Azrael would pick up the win. The recap then shows the number one contendership triple threat match for Sienna Jade’s National Elite Championship between Adam Lucas, Shane Gates, and Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, where Adam Lucas would get the win by pinning Kensingten. The recap then shows Donovan Duke successfully defeating Molly Quinn. Afterwards, the recap would show Sofia Clarke’s interview with Candice Blair which would be interrupted by Minerva, who didn’t believe she has what it takes to defeat Serena Bennett, leading to a match between the two being set up. The recap would then show Candice’s match with Conor Ryan, which Candice would win. The recap then shows Malcolm Jones and Darcy May Morgan’s conversation about Drake King’s new attitude, which would soon end as Drake shows up to the scene. The recap would then show Ahren Fournier picking up a win against Kasey Kaos, though in cheap fashion as he’d use his umbrella to do so. The recap then shows Voltage’s Brand Warfare team deciding that Myles would have to recruit Minerva to their team, and as the recap shows Minerva and Myles’ match and Minerva’s win over him, it shows her accepting their invitation to the team. The recap then shows a number one contendership match for the Unified Tag Team Championships being set for Territorial Invasion between Parental Advisory and Conor Ryan and Donovan Duke, before showing Shane Gates ruining the match between Sienna Jade and Terry Chambers with an attack on Sienna, before Shane would receive a T5 from Terry. The recap then shows a match being set between Azrael and Kasey Kaos, before showing Kasey cost Ms. Extreme a win against TLA. The recap then would show Rex McAllister planting SOSA Henderson with a Rex Effect after a confrontation between the two, and finally the match between Parental Advisory and Darcy May Morgan and Drake King, where Darcy and Drake would win with the help of Malcolm Jones.)
(As the recap ends, the camera transitions to the EAW Performance Center, and the socially distanced crowd immediately begins to cheer once they realize they’re on air. The camera then pans over to the commentary table)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen… Welcome to Voltage! I’m James Peters, and with me as always is Rich Russillo and Persephone Tsitsipas! We’re on the road to Territorial Invasion, and I can’t help but be excited for the night we have planned! So many exciting matches to come, including a Brand Warfare preview triple threat match!
Rich Russillo: Don’t forget a match between Miss Cash in the Vault Darcy May Morgan, and the EAW Champion Rex McAllister. That’s going to be one hell of a match, I can’t wait to see what’s to come tonight-
Persephone: SHUT UP! You already said the most important match happening tonight, you don’t need to talk about anything else. All that’s important is that I get to see Rex McAllister win yet another mat-
(Before Persephone can finish speaking, ‘Overlord’ by Suicide Silence hits, prompting the socially distanced crowd to begin booing. Shane looks completely pissed off as he storms down the ring, and it’s pretty obvious why he’s upset after what went down last week in his number one contendership match for the National Elite Championship. When he enters the ring he doesn’t wait for the crowd to quiet down at all, and instead just begins speaking.)
Shane Gates: I should be the number one contender for the National Elite Championship right now! I should be going onto face and DESTROY Sienna Jade at Territorial Invasion before taking her title, and now I’ve been robbed of that opportunity all thanks to Kensingten Calhoun-Astor! I don’t have the opportunity to become National Elite Champion all because Kensingten’s not capable of being a competent wrestler! This is YOUR fault. You’re so terrible at wrestling that even someone like Adam Lucas was able to pin you. That idiot managed to defeat you and because of that I was robbed of an opportunity I DESERVE! Adam was not good enough to beat me, and it’s an absolute miscarriage of justice that he’s being rewarded with a National Elite Championship match at Territorial Invasion! I already proved my dominance when I beat the fuck out of her during her match against Terry, and I should be proving it again with that damn title on the line!
(The crowd begins booing Shane Gates even louder, but Shane doesn’t seem to care about their booing at all. He’s clearly frustrated with the result of the number one contendership match, and isn’t going to be bothered with whatever the crowd thinks about him.)
Shane Gates: Oh yeah, you’re welcome for the win by the way, bitch. I bet you’re real happy right now. We all know how your match is gonna go at Territorial Invasion. Thanks to me being screwed over you’re getting yet another free title defense. It’s obvious that you’re just being gifted an easy Championship reign since the people backstage favor you. We saw how easily you destroyed Constance Blevins at Bloodsport and it’s gonna be an absolute shitshot watching you destroy an idiot like Adam Lucas in what will no doubt be one of the worst matches on the Territorial Invasion card. That match should be mine and you know it yourself Sienna. Adam Lucas doesn’t have what it takes, he’s nowhere near as much of a threat as me. You know that I should be facing you, Adam Lucas can’t get the job done and if the two of us faced without that waste of space Kensingten involved I would destroy him, just like I did to you last week. You better be grateful Sienna.
(‘Survival’ by Eminem hits, and all of the boos turn to cheers as Adam Lucas makes his way to the stage, and eventually down to the ring. He also has a microphone in his hand, and begins speaking while he enters the ring, meanwhile Shane Gates watches on, growing more and more frustrated.)
Adam Lucas: Um, are you serious right now? Do you really think I’M the one that doesn’t have what it takes? I know I’m new, but you literally have one of the worst EAW records of all time. Dude you really suck.
(The crowd begins cheering in agreement, meanwhile Shane Gates stays silent, clearly bothered by what Adam Lucas has said already. Gates was already mad as soon as he entered the ring, so it wasn’t hard for Adam’s words to get to him.)
Adam Lucas: Let’s make things perfectly clear. You were NEVER going to defeat me last week Shane. You were never going to face Sienna at Territorial Invasion. I was going to find a way to win that match and number one contendership regardless of who I had to defeat to do it, Kensingten just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
Shane Gates: I-
(Before Shane can begin speaking, Adam immediately cuts him off.)
Adam Lucas: No, I don’t want to hear it Shane. I don’t want any more of your excuses about how I couldn’t have possibly beaten you or whatever. I’ll tell you what. If you want a shot at the National Elite Championship so badly, then I’ll give you one last chance to go for it, by putting my own number one contendership on the line in a match against you next week. The winner gets to face Sienna Jade at Territorial Invasion, and the loser has no more excuses to make.
(Shane takes a few seconds to think, but as soon as he goes to answer, ‘Unfuckwithable’ by Deez Nuts hits, causing the crowd to begin booing once again as Sienna Jade makes her way to the ring with the National Elite Championship on her shoulder and a microphone in her hand as well. Both Adam and Shane are a bit confused as to why Sienna is there, but it’s clear Sienna didn’t forget what Shane did to her as she steps into the ring, looking specifically towards him.)
Sienna Jade: Honestly, none of this is really necessary to be honest. After last week, I’m more than happy to defend my Championship against the both of you. Shane you signed your fucking death warrant when you showed up and stuck your nose in my business just because you couldn’t get the job done. I’m literally the eye collector, have you seen what I’ve done to bitches like Constance Blevins and Serena Bennett? I really can’t wrap my head around what you were thinking.
Adam Lucas: Well, I for one am up for the challenge, and I don’t mind if Shane is added to our National Elite Championship match. That just means I’m going to be defeating the both of you to win my very first Championship in EAW.
Sienna Jade: Alright, then it’s settled.
(Sienna turns to walk out of the ring, but soon after she stops, before knocking out Shane Gates with the National Elite Championship!)
James Peters: WOAH! WHAT!? SIENNA JADE JUST HIT SHANE GATES WITH THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP! Just like that, Gates is out! I don’t blame Sienna one bit for that one though, Gates ruined a really good match between her and Terry Chambers last week! If anything Shane deserved more than that!
Rich Russillo: Hold on, I don’t think Sienna is done there! SIENNA GOES TO ATTACK ADAM- BUT ADAM DUCKS UNDER WHAT WOULD’VE BEEN A SHOT TO THE FACE WITH HER CHAMPIONSHIP! ADAM NOW WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, AND THAT FORCED SIENNA TO DROP HER CHAMPIONSHIP! ADAM NOW SENDING SIENNA INTO THE ROPES, AND AS SHE REBOUNDS OFF OF THEM ADAM GOES FOR THE POP UP POWERBOMB!
James Peters: SIENNA JADE COUNTERS IT WITH A HURRICANRANA! ADAM IS BACK TO HIS FEET THOUGH AS HE BACKS TO THE ROPES, AND NOW SHE CHARGES RIGHT TOWARDS HIM- JUST FOR ADAM TO SEND HER OUT THROUGH THE ROPES- BUT WAIT! SIENNA MANAGED TO LAND ON THE APRON! SIENNA IS ON THE APRON AND ADAM GOES TO ATTACK, BUT SIENNA DRIVES HER SHOULDER INTO HIS MIDSECTION, FORCING HIM TO BACK UP!
Rich Russillo: RAW SIENNA!!! SIENNA JUST HIT ADAM LUCAS WITH THAT SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK! IF SIENNA DOES THIS AT TERRITORIAL INVASION, WE WOULD NOT BE SEEING THAT TITLE LEAVE HER WAIST! Both Adam and Shane are out, is this the sight we’ll be seeing in a few weeks time!?
(‘Unfuckwithable’ hits, and the crowd begins booing as Sienna Jade picks up her National Elite Championship, and raises it above Adam Lucas. Shane Gates is rolled out of the ring, still trying to recover after getting hit with the Championship. As Sienna stands tall with the National Elite Championship against both of her challengers, Voltage begins to fade away from the performance center.)
(Commercial break for Lexus. They are very pretty cars.)
(Voltage returns from break and cuts to the ring where Bella Braxton is standing by. She is ready to announce the competitors for the first match of the night!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(An instrumental version of “Rage” by Rico Nasty begins to blast across the PA system. The socially distanced crowd politely reacts as Lisa Wren steps on the stage and begins to make her way down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! FROM BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA… WEIGHING IN AT 140 POUNDS… LISA WREN!
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to Voltage! Before the break, Sienna Jade and Adam Lucas agreed to the addition of Shane Gates to their National Elite Championship match at Territorial Invasion! Shane certainly made his feelings known, and Sienna responded by taking out both of her challengers.
Rich Russillo: I can’t wait to call that match, James, because you know both Lucas and Gates are going to be hungry as they try and capture their first ever championship here in EAW.
Persephone: Yeah but will they, though? Probably not. Shane Gates sucks donkey dick and Adam Lucas doesn’t deserve to win anything until he changes his stupid hair style. Like honestly, who the fuck still rocks the mullet in 2020???
James Peters: The man who could very well become the next National Elite Champion.
Rich Russillo: Sienna Jade is a pretty dominant front runner. There is something about Sienna Jade and a championship that just go hand-in-hand. It will be interesting to see how Territorial Invasion goes for all three of our competitors.
Persephone: This next match is not something that’s interesting though. I’m not sure who booked such a fucking snoozefest, but I’m already over Lisa Wren versus Molly Quinn.
(Lisa is in the ring now, and her music has faded out. The lights go off with a flip of a switch plunging the arena into complete darkness.)
Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT… FROM CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY… WEIGHING IN AT 185 POUNDS… MOLLY QUINN!!!
(Instantly the opening to “God Is She” by In This Moment begins to play over the P.A System. Just then the entrance begins to light up with a crimson hue as smoke slowly begins to fill the stage when the curtain parts ways and a silhouette walking through only to stop at the center of the stage with their head down with an obvious hood covering their head while the opening lyrics begin.)
“I am the God and the Devil Around You”
“I am the Heaven and the Hell that your crave”
“I am the Queens and the Kings that you bow to”
“I am Name written on your grave”
(The arena’s lights come on with the smoke having dissipated a little to reveal Molly Quinn who looks up from under the hood, she begins to walk down towards the ring.)
Persephone: I’m sorry, but how does this no name, fat ass have a more impressive entrance than our own EAW World Champion, Rex McAllister? This is absolutely fucking ridiculous.
James Peters: Molly Quinn is looking to get back in the winner’s circle tonight, that much is certain. She’s had a rough go of it after picking up a win in her debut match against Jason McKormick over on Dynasty, and I know she’s got some high hopes for herself.
Rich Russillo: Absolutely. Tonight’s match against Lisa should be a good test for Molly. I know Lisa doesn’t have the best record on Voltage, but she always gives her opponents trouble and she might be able to outsmart the powerful Molly Quinn here tonight and get herself a much needed win.
(Once Molly reaches the bottom of the ramp, she tears the hood off with a roar of rage. With a leap onto the apron in one fluid motion, Molly vaults over the top rope and walks across the ring to the opposite corner which she climbs and poses where she smirks before looking back towards the referee. He makes sure both women are ready and he calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And we’re off! Molly and Lisa circle one another and it’s Molly who initiates the collar-and-elbow tie up! She outmuscles Lisa, twists Lisa’s arm behind her back and drops to her knees, bringing Lisa down on the mat! Molly wraps her arm around Lisa’s neck and Lisa has to fight her way to freedom! She manages to wrap her legs around Molly’s neck, but Molly is quick to kip up and out of the head scissors and leaps up to her feet!
Rich Russillo: Lisa scrambles up as well but Molly nearly takes her head off with a big boot to the face! She drops down for the first cover of the match!
Persephone: Shoulder up for Lisa.
James Peters: Molly helps Lisa up and immediately cinches in a side headlock. Lisa elbows her way free, and grabs Molly, but Molly catches Lisa in the side of the head with an elbow of her own! Lisa breaks the hold she had on Molly but she immediately tries for a waistlock takedown! She manages to wrestle Molly to the mat, but Molly rolls over Lisa and grabs the arm! Molly looking for an armbar, but Lisa slips free and immediately runs the ropes! She catches Molly on the rebound with a clothesline! Lisa snatches Molly up by the hair and whips her into the corner! Lisa runs towards Molly, but Molly ducks and lifts Lisa up! She dumps her on the apron, but Lisa is able to nail Molly in the back of the head with a forearm! She climbs the ropes, gets set on the top turnbuckle, and launches herself off!!!
Rich Russillo: Molly turns around and she catches Lisa! Lisa was going for a flying crossbody but Molly caught her in mid-air! Molly turns and takes off running… and she smashes Lisa into the corner! She lets Lisa drop to the ground and takes a few steps back. Molly allows Lisa to pull herself up and she takes off at full speed! Molly leaps in the air and she flattens Lisa against the corner with a huge splash! Molly drags Lisa from the corner, scoops her up, and she plants her in the middle of the mat with a running power slam! Molly hooks the leg for a cover!
James Peters: Lisa gets the shoulder up once again!
Persephone: Molly is up and making her way to the ropes. I really hope this bitch doesn’t try and climb to the top because she might fucking break the ringpost.
Rich Russillo: :whoa: Molly is very muscular and fit. She is not fat.
Persephone: I mean, she’s fucking fat, but hey, if this whole wrestling thing isn’t working out for her, then she can always pose for some BBW fetish pictures. I bet she can cram her rolls into one of those little bondage harnesses or something.
James Peters: :whoa:
Rich Russillo: Look at Lisa though! She’s up and she is rushing to the corner! She slams into the ropes and Molly is forced down into a sitting position! Lisa with punches to the gut of Molly Quinn and she’s got the former strongwoman competitor off balance! Lisa grabs Molly and this is a really impressive show of strength by Lisa! Lisa is lifting Molly off the top turnbuckle and she has her up in the powerbomb position! Molly fires off several punches to the top of Lisa’s skull, but Lisa plants Molly in the center of the ring and stacks her on her shoulders!!!
Persephone: Kick out by Molly!
James Peters: Lisa wastes no time mounting her opponent and going to town! Right hand after right hand connects with Molly’s face and she is unable to fend Lisa off! Lisa Wren is feeling it right now and she rolls off Molly and runs the ropes! Lisa uses the momentum to hit a beautiful running elbow drop that lands right in the middle of Molly’s chest! Lisa is back up and she quickly lands a double foot stomp down in the middle of Molly’s chest! No doubt that move just drove all the air out of Molly’s lungs, but why is Lisa not going for the cover?
Persephone: Well I assume she wants to hit one more move to be sure that Molly doesn’t kick out.
Rich Russillo: It looks like Persephone is right! Lisa is going for Rolling Thunder right now!
James Peters: But Molly is moving out of the way! Lisa crashes and burns, and Molly quickly goes for a roll up style pin!
Persephone: But Lisa quickly rolls through and she’s back to her feet! She nails Molly in the back with a dropkick and sends her chest first into the ropes! Lisa from behind and Molly’s head slams into the back of the mat thanks to that beautiful German suplex from Lisa Wren! Lisa bridges up for the pin!!!
Rich Russillo: Molly manages to pop her shoulder up off the mat, but Lisa is not bothered! She keeps her arms locked around Molly and she brings them both back up into a vertical position! She goes for another German suplex but this time Molly plants her feet! Lisa is not able to bring Molly down! Molly connects with an elbow to the side of Lisa’s skull and she drives them both back into the corner!
Persephone: Molly separates herself from Lisa and tries to shake the cobwebs out! She quickly runs around the ring, looking for a Facewash, but nobody’s home! Lisa moves and Molly connects with nothing but air! Molly turns around and eats a spinning heel kick from Lisa!
James Peters: Lisa with shoulder after shoulder into Molly’s gut, and this aggression we are seeing from Lisa is incredible! She knows she has the advantage in the match right now and she does not want to let it go! Lisa has had several matches slip through her fingers but she so desperately wants tonight to be different! Lisa has switched to stomps now and she’s forced Molly down into a sitting position! A knee to the face connects with Molly, and drags her opponent out of the corner by the hair. To Molly’s credit, she is still fighting. She’s making sure stays in this match, but Lisa summons all her strength and lifts Molly into the air! Lisa Wren has Molly Quinn upside down, letting all the blood rush to Molly’s skull, and she drives her headfirst into the mat! Lisa with a cover!!!
Rich Russillo: Molly kicked out at the last possible nanosecond! Lisa looks a bit frustrated at the moment, but she can’t afford to let her emotions get the better of her right now! She’s back to her feet and she stomps away on Molly! Lisa has really found another gear tonight. I’m kind of impressed. You can tell how badly she wants to win this match and get herself back on track.
Persephone: I guess but it’s not like Lisa isn’t going to revert back to her old losing ways next week. It’s forever going to be one babystep forward and ten giant steps back for this bitch. She just doesn’t have the killer instinct needed. She’s no Rex :wow:
James Peters: Well right now we have to live in the present and Lisa Wren just landed a beautiful front flip knee drop onto Molly! That is setting Lisa up for the kill, I believe. She is going to go for the Rolling Thunder once again!
Rich Russillo: LISA HITS IT! Lisa hooks the leg and she goes for the cover!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER… LISA WREN!
(The instrumental version of “Rage” by Rico Nasty once again begins to play throughout the Performance Center. A very jubilant Lisa Wren slowly gets to her feet and allows the referee to raise her hand.)
James Peters: That’s a great win for Lisa. She needed that, especially after what happened last week on Dynasty. She was forced to team up against her arch enemy, Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, in what was a losing effort against Mason Massacre, and the man we will see in action later on tonight in Xander Payne.
Rich Russillo: I definitely agree. An athlete like Lisa has all the tools needed to become an impact player here on Voltage, but she just can’t seem to get anything going for herself. She remains incredibly inconsistent, but at least tonight, she came and got what she’s been searching for, and that’s a solid win.
Persephone: One match down. One step closer to Rex.
(The camera takes a final shot of Lisa still celebrating inside the ring before fading into a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Bed, Bath, and Beyond candles.)
(As Voltage returns from commercial, the shot opens with Bella Braxton standing in the ring holding an EAW branded microphone.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for… ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Girei’ by Yasuharo Takanashi blares through the speakers to loud boos, as the lights cut out almost instantly. As the song continues further, bright lights begin to flash down the ramp like a pulse, as Azrael appears inside that area.)
James Peters: And to start off the match, we are met with a flashy entrance, no pun intended, by Azrael! Is it too late for an epilepsy warning?
Rich Russillo: Yes. But that’s totally fine, because this entrance is both chilling yet amazing to look at!
James Peters: It is indeed, but let’s not forget what led up to this match. Azrael’s opponent sent a FIREBALL into the face of Azrael’s brother! I’m very sure he wants revenge right now.
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… weighting in at 290 pounds… AAAAAAAZRAAEEEEEEEEEEELLLL!
(Azrael climbs onto the apron, then enters the ring. He walks to the center of the ring, then stares down the hardcam… standing still…)
(‘Cry Little Sister’ by Mairilyn Manson interrupts Azrael’s theme. The lights remain dim, until Kasey Kaos walks onto the stage, with the lighting turning red, and purple. The crowd explodes with cheers, as she begins to walk down the ramp)
Bella Braxton: And introducing his opponent… billed from The Lake of Fire… weighing in at 140 pounds… KASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY KAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS!
James Peters: Speak of the devil… probably literally, here comes the woman who threw a fireball into Mr. Jacobs’ face! That was a shocking moment, and I sincerely hope he’s okay.
Rich Russillo: I’m sure he’ll be fine! It’s not like she set his entire head on fire, it was just a little flash, I assume.
James Peters: You assume?
Rich Russillo: Yeah, I assume.
James Peters: Well… if you insist.
(Kasey Kaos climbs onto the apron, and enters the ring, as she stares across at Azrael with a sinister smile plastered on her face. Her theme then fades out.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The bell rings, meaning this match is under way but…I don’t know what to expect, to be quite honest! As these two… well… to put it blunty, crazed beings, stare off with one another I just… it feels unsettling to say the least.
Rich Russillo: Man up, broth- OH MY GOD AZRAEL’S STICKING HIS FINGERS DOWN HER THROAT!
Persephone: I’d let Rexy Roo do that to me
Rich Russillo: BUT WAIT, KASEY MANAGED TO GRAB HIS TWO FINGERS BEFORE THE LAST BREATH CAN BE LOCKED IN! SHE THEN BEGINS TO WRENCH THEM IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION OF HOW FINGERS ARE SUPPOSED TO BEND!
James Peters: A FORM OF JOINT MANIPULATION BEING PERFORMED BY KASEY KAOS! SHE CONTINUES TO PULL HIS FINGERS BACK, BUT AZRAEL DOESN’T SEEM TO BE HAVING ANY OF IT, AS HE GRABS ONTO HER HAIR AND TRIES TO YANK STRANDS OUT OF HER HEAD!
Rich Russillo: BUT KASEY OUTSMARTS HIM, BY PLACING HIS FINGERS BACK IN HER MOUTH, AND DIGGING HER TEETH INTO THEM! SHE THEN USES BOTH OF HER ARMS TO CRUSH AZRAEL’S HEAD LIKE A ZIT WITH TWO CLUBBING FOREARM STRIKES!
James Peters: BUT IT DOESN’T APPEAR TO WORK! AZRAEL BARELY FLINCHES, AND LET’S GO OF HER HAIR! HE QUICKLY USES HIS OTHER ARM TO GRAB UNDER HER ARMPIT, BEFORE HE LIFTS HER UP WITH FREAKISH STRENGTH! SPINEBUSTER!!
Rich Russillo: BENEATH THE MASK HIS EYES LOOK CRAZED, ALMOST AMUSED AT WATCHING HIS OPPONENT IN PAIN! KASEY TRIES TO RISE TO HER FEET, BUT AZRAEL CLOBBERS HER WITH AN UPPERCUT TO THE JAW, KNOCKING HER BACK DOWN!
James Peters: BUT SHE CATCHES HIS HAND BY HIS FINGERS, USING BOTH OF HERS! HOLY SHIT!!! SHE SNAPS HIS FINGERS IN TWO, WHICH CAUSES AZRAEL TO CLENCH ONTO THEM AS HE TAKES A STEP BACK!
Rich Russillo: KASEY KAOS BOUNCES TO HER FEET, AND TRIES TO TAKE CONTROL- BUT AZRAEL WAS BLUFFING! HE QUICKLY SNAPS BACK WITH A HUGE LARIAT, TAKING KASEY OFF HER FEET, FLIPPING HER IN THE AIR!
James Peters: BUT AZRAEL ISN’T DONE! HE QUICKLY CRAWLS OVER, AND PLACES HIS HAND OVER KAOS’ THROAT!! HE BEGINS TO CHOKE HER ON THE SPOT!
Rich Russillo: KASEY KAOS IS BUILT DIFFERENT, HOWEVER! SHE COMPLETELY POWERS THROUGH NOT BEING ABLE TO BREATHE, AND STICKS HER FINGERS INTO AZRAEL’S EYES, THROUGH HIS MASK! HIS GRIP IS LET GO, AS HE FALLS ONTO HIS BACK, LEAVING KASEY TO CATCH HER BREATH!
James Peters: Kasey quickly rises to her feet, still with a hand on her throat, as she eyes down the other being in the ring! Once Azrael returns to a stable position, she quickly sprints forward and nails him with a leaping stomp to Azrael’s upper body! She drives him into the mat with her feet, before covering him!
James Peters: WHAT!?!? Azrael kicks out already! It appears Kasey hasn’t done enough damage to him in order to put him away!
Rich Russillo: Not even enough for a two count, actually! Kasey quickly rises to her feet, and begins to uppercut Azrael in the head, but he powers through, and lifts her into the air! Chokesla-
James Peters: Kasey backflips out of it! She then hits a snap headbutt onto Azrael… BUT HE DOESN’T BUDGE! HE THEN HITS ONE OF HIS OWN, AND KASEY DROPS TO THE FLOOR! SO FAR AZRAEL IS DOING EVERYTHING KASEY DOES, BUT WITH MORE, SICKENING, POWER!
Rich Russillo: One difference has been Azrael NOT going for the cover! So far he just wants to punish Kasey Kaos as violently as possible! Brutal, hard hitting, destructive attacks!
Persephone: Rex can destr-
James Peters: Azrael crawls over to Kasey Kaos, and mounts on top of her. Looking down at her… stomach? What is he thinking of doi-
James Peters: OH MY GOD, DID YOU HEAR THAT?!? THE THUNDEROUS AXE HANDLES TO KASEY’S STOMACH, WHILST SHE’S LED DOWN! VERY SLOW, BUT DISECTIVE ATTACKS!
Rich Russillo: TO MAKE SURE SHE DOESN’T SIT UP, AZRAEL PUTS THE END OF HIS BOOT AGAINST HER THROAT, BEFORE HE BEGINS TO JAB HER AS HARD AS HE CAN IN HER STOMACH!
(The crowd is completely silent, watching on in horror at this disturbing yet simple torture.)
James Peters: NOTICE HOW AZRAEL DOESN’T RETRACT HIS STRIKES AFTER THEY CONNECT! HE LEAVES HIS FIST LAYING ON THE STOMACH, WHICH I WOULD ONLY ASSUME ADDS EXTRA WEIGHT TO THOSE CLUBS!
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL CONTINUES TO STRIKE, BUT KASEY APPEARS TO HAVE FOUND A WAY OUT! SHE PULLS AZRAEL’S LEG BEHIND HER HEAD, BEFORE COUNTERING A PUNCH WITH A HUGE KICK TO THE CHEST! AZRAEL UNINTENTIONALLY LET’S KASEY GO, AS SHE RISES TO HER FEET! SHE GRABS ONTO THE LOCKS OF AZRAEL, BEFORE HEADBUTTING HIM IN HIS HEAD! AND AGAIN! SHE RAPIDLY HITS MORE AND MORE HEADBUTTS, BEFORE AZRAEL FINALLY CRUMBLES! SHE FALLS INTO A COVER!
James Peters: KICK-OUT! SOMEHOW AZRAEL KICKS OUT!
Rich Russillo: SOMEHOW? YOU’RE STILL SURPRISED!?!?
James Peters: …fair enough to be honest with you.
Rich Russillo: Wait did you just agree with me?
James Peters: Don’t make me retract my statement, bud.
Persephone: Ugh! Get a room!
James Peters: Kasey doesn’t waste any time, and continues to headbutt Azrael! As soon as he gets his head off the ground, he’s knocked back down!
Rich Russillo: This type of kiss is painful!
Persephone: I’d let Rexy kiss me!
James Peters: Ugh! Get a room!
Rich Russillo: Kasey Kaos’ headbutts were a smart tactic! She was not only using them as a means to wear down Azrael, but also stall as she thought of an idea! This became obvious to me just now, you’re welcome for my genius.
James Peters: That was a great observation! Too bad you don’t do those much.
Rich Russillo: WOW! Okay.
Kasey Kaos: (off-mic) Get. The fuck. Up.
James Peters: Kasey is calling Azrael up to his feet, waiting to use what she has planned, and I don’t doubt it’s something just as sickening as everything has been earlier! Azrael climbs to his feet in the corner, but Kasey stops him by using the sole of her boot to crush his skull against the turnbuckles! But that’s not all! She grabs his ear, and now wrenches backwards, whilst using her feet to push forward!! Jesus this is hard to watch, and that’s saying something!
Rich Russillo: I don’t think that was her plan… Azrael’s ear is just something to grip! She pulls his head back with her boot AND STOMPS IT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! AZRAEL DROPS TO THE FLOOR, AS KASEY FALLS INTO A COVER!
James Peters: NO! AZRAEL STAYS IN IT! HE POPS THE SHOULDER UP AT THE VERY LAST SECOND, AND THE MATCH CONTINUES! KASEY KAOS LOOKS STUNNED!
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL ISN’T STAYING DOWN! IS THIS RESILIENCE OR SIMPLY HOW STRONG HE IS?? I DON’T EXACTLY KNOW, BUT HE IS GETTING BACK UP EVER SO SLOWLY!
James Peters: KASEY IS GETTING TO HER FEET ALSO! SHE BACKS OFF INTO THE CORNER, AS SHE AWAITS AZRAEL! HE GETS UP TO A SEATED POSITION, AND SHE STRIKES! RUNNING SHOTGUN DROPKICK TO HIS CHEST KNOCKS HIM BACKWARDS, BUT HE SLOWLY RISES TO HIS FEET AGAIN! KASEY STANDS BACK UP, RUNS THE ROPES, AND HITS ANOTHER SHOTGUN DROPKICK TO THE CHEST, BUT AZRAEL WILL NOT STAY DOWN! HE RISES TO HIS KNEES, AND KASEY SLIPS TO HER FEET! SHE RUNS TO THE CORNER, BOUNCES OFF AND USES THE RECOIL TO DELIVER A HUGE SHOTGUN DROPKICK TO AZRAEL’S HEAD! AZRAEL SNAPS TO THE FLOOR, AS KASEY SCRAMBLES TO HER FEET AGAIN! SHE SPRINTS TO THE CORNER AGAIN, AND BOUNCES OFF… CHERRY BOMB!!! THE SHINING WIZARD SMASHES AGAINST AZRAEL’S HEAD!! KASEY KAOS CRAWLS TO THE COVER, WITHOUT HOOKING ANY LEGS FOR EXTRA LEVERAGE!
Rich Russillo: KICK OUT! AZRAEL KICKS OUT BEFORE THREE! WAIT, KASEY LIES BACK INTO THE COVER, AND LOOKS A LEG!!
Rich Russillo: ANOTHER KICK OUT! KASEY IS COMPLETELY PUSHED OFF, AND SHE ROLLS TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! AZRAEL SLOWLY RISES TO HIS FEET, AS KASEY RUNS TOWARDS HIM… SPEAR-
James Peters: WHIPLASH OUT OF NOWHERE! AZRAEL CLOBBERS HER WITH A BATTERING RAM HEADBUTT JUST BEFORE THE SPEAR CONNECTS! AZRAEL HOLDS ONTO HIS HEAD AND ADJUSTS HIS POSITION BEFORE HE KNEELS DOWN AND MAKES HIS FIRST COVER!!!
Rich Russillo: NO! KASEY KAOS KICKS OUT, POPPING HER LEFT SHOULDER UP TO ESCAPE THE PINFALL, AND TO STAY IN THE MATCH! AZRAEL MOUNTS KASEY AGAIN, AND BEGINS TO PUMMEL HERE MORE! FOREARM AFTER FOREARM AFTER PUNCH AFTER JAB, ALL SORTS OF STRIKES ACROSS THE BOARD! AZRAEL THEN GRABS KASEY BY HER FACE, BEFORE SMASHING THE BACK OF HER HEAD INTO THE MAT OVER AND OVER! MAKING LOUD THUDS, AS IF SOMEONE WAS BEING POWERBOMBED AT FULL FORCE! AZRAEL THEN STANDS UP, AND PULLS KASEY WITH HIM, BEFORE PLACING HER HEAD UNDER HIS ARM, AND PROJECTING HER ONTO THE APRON! FASTER THAN SHE WENT OUT, SHE’S PULLED ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE, BEFORE AZRAEL HITS HER WITH A ROPE-HUNG SNAP DDT!
James Peters: NO! KASEY KAOS SLIDES OFF THE ROPE INTO A STANDING POSITION… ASK THE ANGELS!!! A SPINNING KICK TO THE BACK OF AZRAEL’S HEAD KNOCKS HIM DOWN TO THE FLOOR WITH A LOUD THUD! BUT THIS TIME, KASEY THINKS TWICE ABOUT A COVER! INSTEAD, SHE DECIDES TO DEAL MORE DAMAGE, AS SHE DRAGS AZRAEL TO THE CORNER, AND PLACES HIS HEAD AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE… ANOTHER SPINNING KICK, CRUSHING HIS HEAD BETWEEN HER BOOT AND THE PROTECTED STEEL ONCE AGAIN! AZRAEL FALLS TO THE FLOOR, AS KASEY LIES ON TOP OF HIM!
Rich Russillo: THREE- NO! AZRAEL POPS THE SHOULDER UP TO REMAIN IN THE MATCH AND KEEP GOING! AFTER TWO SPIN KICKS TO HIS HEAD, AND USING THE TURNBUCKLE ON THE SECOND ONE, HE’S ABLE TO STAY IN THE MATCH!
James Peters: AND NOW KAOS IS THE ONE ON THE OFFENSE! SHE MOUNTS AZRAEL, AND BEGINS TO POUND DOWN ON HIM WITH OPEN HAND PALM STRIKES TO HIS HEAD AND CHEST AT A RAPID SPEED! SHE WANTS TO DO MORE THAN HURT HIM, SHE INTENDS ON MAKING HIM STOP MOVING! A LOT OF PHYSICAL TRAUMA WILL BE SUFFERED AFTER THIS MATCH, INTENTIONAL BY KASEY!
Persephone: I get a lot of trauma when you shout.
Rich Russillo: KASEY THEN ROLLS TO HER FEET, AND LEAPS TO THE MIDDLE ROPE! SHE JUMPS BACKWARDS, BEFORE HITTING A DOUBLE KNEE DROP TO THE FACE! CRUSHING AZRAEL’S HEAD ONCE AGAIN! CONCUSSION MANIA, EVERYONE!
James Peters: KASEY KAOS ROLLS BACKWARDS, AS SHE STARES OFF AT AZRAEL, WHO IS FINALLY NOT MOVING! AND BLOOD TRICKLES TO THE MAT FROM THE TOP OF HIS HEAD!
Persephone: All that for a drop of blood?
Rich Russillo: I understood that reference.
Persephone: Didn’t ask, to be honest.
James Peters: Kasey stumbles backwards to the corner, as she waits for Azrael to get into position for her to hit whatever she has prepared next! She squats down in the corner, measuring Azrael… SHE RUNS FORWARD AND HITS A SPEAR-
Rich Russillo: AZRAEL CATCHES HER! HE’S GOT HIS HAND OVER HER SHOULDER… URANAGE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, BEFORE HE FOLLOWS UP WITH A SNAPPING URANAGE INTO THE MAT! KASEY KAOS BOUNCES EVER SO SLIGHTLY OFF THE GROUND BECAUSE OF THE IMPACT TAKEN AFTER THE BUMP! SHE ARCHES HER BACK IN PAIN, AS AZRAEL GROWLS, AND PICKS HER BACK UP FACING THE OTHER DIRECTION! HE PLACES HIS ARMS AROUND HER WAIST AND LIFTS HER INTO THE AIR! SHE HAS NOWHERE TO GO… REVERSE SPINEBUSTER… FACEBUSTER? EITHER WAY, SHE WAS DROPPED INTO THE MAT WITH FORCE!!
James Peters: AZRAEL BEGINS TO STEP BACKWARDS, CLEARLY CHARGING UP LIKE A BULL, AS HE WAITS FOR KASEY TO GET BACK UP TO HER FEET, WHICH COULD TAKE A WHILE CONSIDERING HOW HARD THAT FALL WAS!
Rich Russillo: I WOULD NEVER HAVE IMAGINED SOMETHING SO SIMPLE COULD BE DELIVERED WITH THAT AMOUNT OF POWER AND INTENSITY, BUT SOMEHOW AZRAEL MANAGED TO DO THAT, SO CREDIT TO HIM!
James Peters: KASEY KAOS USES THE ROPES NEXT TO THE REFEREE TO RISE TO HER FEET, AND AS SHE TURNS AROUND AZRAEL CHARGES! WHIPLAS- NO! KASEY MOVES, AND AZRAEL ALMOST CONNECTS WITH THE REFEREE! THE REFEREE TURNS HIS BACK AND HOLDS HIS HEAD TO PROTECT HIMSELF, LUCKILY HE WASN’T HIT! AZRAEL TURNS AROUND AN-
Rich Russiillo: WHAT THE FUCK!?!??! A FIREBALL INTO HIS EYES!
(The crowd gasps in shock.)
James Peters: AZRAEL FALLS AS HE HOLDS HIS EYES, POSSIBLY BLINDED BY THE FIRE! THE REFEREE DOESN’T NOTICE ANYTHING IS UP YET, AND KASEY CAPITALIZES! SHE KNEELS DOWN, SHOOTS THE HALF, AND TRANSITIONS INTO A SMALL PACKAGE HOLD!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Cry Little Sister’ by Mairilyn Manson hits the speakers as Kasey Kaos rolls off of Azrael, who has been covering his eyes through the entire pinfall.)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… KAAAAAAAAASEEEEEEEEEY KAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOS!!!!!
James Peters: WE KNEW SHE WAS CAPABLE OF THIS, BUT TO SEE IT LIVE IN FRONT OF OUR EYES MAKES IT EVEN MORE SHOCKING!
Rich Russillo: IT APPEARS THE HELL DEMON FOUND A WAY TO SLAY THE MONSTER INSIDE OF AZRAEL, BY BURNING HIS EYES, POSSIBLY BLINDING HIM, AND WORSE!
(As Kasey celebrates on the top rope, rather villainously to cheers, Voltage transitions to commercial break.)
(Commercial for EAW 2k21 Legends Edition.)
(Voltage returns from break and a screen bar flashes across the screen.)
[ SCREEN BAR – EARLIER IN THE WEEK ]
(In an attempt for Team Voltage who all members have been chosen to represent Voltage at Territorial Invasion, one of the main concerns for them was to be able and bond with their newest and last chosen, the former Universal Women’s Champion, Minerva. The Gypsy Moth outside of the ring is a bit of a mystery, nobody really knows anything about her likes and what she does for fun. Ahren Fournier as Team Captain along with Terry Chambers, Myles, TLA and Minerva in order chosen, they had decided to try and do what each likes for entertainment…..)
[The Poon Palace]
(The Poon Palace had turned out to be like the Hall of Justice for the Super Friends. Last week this was the venue where the four men had decided to choose Minerva as the last and final member to their team as they entered Brand Warfare. TLA sitting there in his white suit, and vest, the warm Florida weather playing its part, sitting pool side as the Poons enjoy themselves in their bikinis by the water. Ahren Fournier doesn’t look overly impressed, wearing enough suntan lotion, his nose white as chalk. Myles in his Australian speedos sits comfortably on lawn chair sipping a Margarita, his wandering eyes covered by sunglasses. Terry Chambers is on the phone, explaining why he is there to Consuela…)
Terry: I am not looking at anything but you babe.
Consuela: (On the Phone) You better, why are you even there!? You were there last week, surrounded by all those Poons and…
(Terry tries to whisper to her so no one else hears.)
Terry: No baby, they have nothing on you. I am not looking at any of them, they don’t exist, only you in my life, know what I am saying? We are here to bond as a team and with Minerva.
Consuela: (On the Phone) Get her really drunk so my sister beats her.
Terry: Anything for you.
TLA: Really puto?
(TLA Stands over Terry, sneaking up on him, Terry quickly tries to hang up.)
Terry: Gotta go, call you later!
(Before Consuela can say anything Terry hangs up.)
Terry: Maybe you shouldn’t eavesdrop.
TLA: Maybe you shouldn’t be so pussy-whooped. We all decided to have team building bonding sessions, I was first, Poon Palace. We were here last week but look at Myles, amigo? That vato is secretly enjoying himself. Ahren is probably miserable because we got a different type of cat here today, buey. Look at you though cabron, all still dressed up like you’re going to church, surrounded by Poons.
Terry: I didn’t want to come here again, but I am here. Where is Minerva?
TLA: She will be here soon, I just learned she lives thirty minutes down the road in the Glades, had I known that I would have had her in the Poon Palace sooner, know what I mean?
Terry: NO, I don’t.
TLA: Damn, you really head over heels for….
Terry: Shut up.
(Ahren chimes in…)
Ahren: Why is it so hot here? I am melting! Please, I am choosing the next outing! A nice air-conditioned place! What are you doing Terry?
(Terry shrugs his shoulders.)
Terry: I don’t know, maybe we can all go work out together in my gym and….
(Before he could finish his sentence, he noticed Myles, Ahren and TLA staring at him, all with narrowing eyes.)
Myles: Work out at your gym? Are you being serious?
Terry: Well… yeah! Why not. We need to be ready for Territorial Invasion!
Ahren: I’m not going to Detroit, besides I have sweat enough today, I am not going to sweat in some smelly gym.
TLA: That sounds boring, amigo. I got a better idea vato, why don’t we all accompany you on a date with Consuela?
(Terry’s head turns quickly almost spinning off his neck, TLA Is smiling, Myles smirks, Ahren rolling his eyes.)
Ahren: I rather not go to some cheap place like Red Lobster.
Terry: Hey…. What is wrong with Red Lobster!?
TLA: Speaking of red…..
(TLA points to the back entrance as Minerva shows up, surprisingly wearing jean shorts, sandals and a black halter top, Myles lowers his glasses, they all catch it.)
TLA: I knew it, chingon! You….
Myles: Don’t even go there, mate.
Ahren: Really, she hit him in the jewels, she tried to gouge out my eyes. What did she do to you TLA and Terry?
(TLA and Terry look at one another, shrugging their shoulders.)
Terry: Nothing. But she does want to kill Cand….
TLA: Hijo de la chingada, don’t worry about that buey, this woman is our partner, we need to make her feel welcomed, like be good teammates, whatever she did to Myles last week or Ahren a month ago mean nothing right now or if she wants to beat up your heina’s hermana. We need to welcome her with open arms, like this….
(TLA stands up with open arms as Minerva approaches them.)
TLA: Minerva! Welc….
Minerva: Sit the fuck down, TLA, I’m here, aren’t I?
TLA: Oh. I like her. Don’t take offense, Myles carnal.
(Minerva’s head pivots toward Myles, checking out his body in the Australian flag speedos, before turning back to TLA.)
Minerva: So, what are we doing? This is supposed to be some Team Building thing, I begrudgingly agreed to it and if you haven’t noticed, I don’t lay out much in the sun or do “pool” things.
TLA: Yes, we took that factoid in mind, so we have catering, plenty of your Latin favorites, the Tequila is flowing, and we have good music and dancing.
Minerva: I don’t dance that Salsa shit.
TLA: We can’t all be perfect, mami just relax and we….
(He notices Minerva looking over at the red headed pale Poon dancing on the pole.)
Minerva: Who is that?
TLA: Ruby, we have credited her with giving Myles and the rest of us the idea of asking you on our team.
Minerva: Is that so? Does she always dance on the pole like that?
TLA: Si mon, that’s her pole.
Minerva: Ruby, huh?
TLA: Orale, Ruby.
(A Sheepish grin comes across the face of Minerva who kicks off her sandals and starts making her way toward Ruby and the pole. TLA lowers his glasses, Terry looks on, Ahren tilts his head, Myles pretends he isn’t watching but he is as Minerva hops on the stage, she starts conversing with Ruby when suddenly she kicks her in the gut, Ruby buckles over and Minerva DDT’s her on the platform knocking her cold, kicking her off the stage and landing in the pool. Minerva then grabs the pole and starts to dance much to the surprise of the four men, Myles then looks on as TLA smirks.)
TLA: Amigos, I think we made the right choice.
(The footage continues to show Minerva dancing on the Pole as the others look on before it transitions to a Holistic Day Spa the following day. Terry Chambers stands by the entrance way refusing to go any further as Ahren has purchased a whole day package for the team including Mani/pedis, mud bath, facial, hot rock therapy and finally a juice bar in a zen garden. Minerva looks intrigued by it, Myles looks away trying to avoid contact with anyone, TLA is all smiles with his fedora and pimp cane.)
Ahren: This is going to be the best day, oh yes!
(The other four members look on as the Team Captain has a huge smile on his face as the scene fades into a commercial break.)
(Commercial break reminding everyone who important it is to vote in the upcoming election. Register to vote and use your voice!)
(As Voltage fades back to the performance center, ‘Player Haters’ Ball’ by Palisades hits, and the Voltage crowd begins to boo. Soon after Jesse Barlow, Korey Gaines, and Hannah Marin begin making their way towards the ring. Both Korey and Jesse have microphones in their hands, and they don’t seem to care about the booing as they eventually enter the ring, and finally begin to speak.)
Jesse Barlow: Conor Ryan and Donovan Duke have gotta be the dumbest motherf**kers alive. Last week they challenged us to a number one contendership match at Territorial Invasion, and I’ve been wondering ever since then. Are they serious? Was that just some type of stupid prank? I just can’t believe there’s anyone on the roster that f**king stupid, but it looks like it’s official. Donovan Duke and Conor Ryan are about to be embarrassed by Parental Advisory at Territorial Invasion, and then we’re going to go on to defeat the Grand Athletes for the Unified Tag Team Championships and be at the top where we belong. Those two dumb**ses Conor and Donovan don’t stand a chance, they’re way in over their heads.
Korey Gaines: That’s right. Territorial Invasion is a forgone conclusion, and I don’t think those two are capable of beating anyone, let alone the two of us. We’re going straight to the top, and this match at Territorial Invasion only made that road easier, as now we’re basically guaranteed a Unified Tag Team Championship match, since there’s obviously no way we’re gonna lose to the likes of you guys.
Jesse Barlow: Just imagine that. Imagine losing to Conor Ryan and Donovan Duke. How much of a f**king worthless loser do you have to be to let guys like them beat you? We’ll never have to worry about that though, because we’re on a way higher level than those two.
(‘The Phoenix’ by Fall Out Boy hits, and both Donovan Duke and Conor Ryan make their way out to the stage. Neither of them look very impressed by Parental Advisory, and they begin to speak while walking down the ramp, and eventually entering the ring.)
Donovan Duke: Wow, so you’re underestimating us yet again..
Conor Ryan: No shock there.
Donovan Duke: I hope you two understand that this is just gonna come back to bite you. We know that we’re good enough to get past the two of you, and whoever’s holding the Unified Tag Titles once we’re done with you guys. Your ego’s just gonna get the best of you guys. Makes things way easier for the two of us.
Conor Ryan: We’re more than capable of winning, and we can prove that.
(Korey, Jesse, and Hannah all look towards each other with grins on their faces, as if they found humor in what Donovan and Conor said.)
Jesse Barlow: You know what? We’re glad you said that! We do want you to prove it, because until you two can beat a tag team you don’t deserve to face the future greatest tag team of all time.
Conor Ryan: Alright, perfect! Come on then, let’s do this!
(As Conor speaks, all three members of Parental Advisory begin exiting the ring, before standing down at ringside, which confuses both Conor and Donovan.)
Korey Gaines: Woah woah woah, you guys didn’t think you’d be facing us tonight, did you?
Donovan Duke: Uhhh, yeah? Who else would we be facing?
Korey Gaines: Them.
(Korey Gaines points to the stage, and soon after some generic music begins to play as two pretty big and angry looking guys begin walking down the ramp. Neither Donovan nor Conor look very amused seeing this, but they don’t really care if that’s who they have to defeat.)
Jesse Barlow: Making their way into the ring… At a combined weight of… Like… 600 pounds? Somewhere around there. The team of Crash and Hulk!
James Peters: 600 pounds? That’s a pretty big weight difference compared to these two.
Rich Russillo: Those names aren’t related to Marvel or anything are they? Is that even allowed?
Persephone: What type of geeks did Jesse and Korey just bring in..?
(Conor steps out onto the apron, and Hulk stands on the apron, allowing Crash and Donovan to start the match.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: Well this impromptu match is now underway, and Donovan immediately locks up with Crash! Crash has a huge weight advantage- but it looks like that doesn’t matter right now as Donovan manages to lock him in a headlock! Crash is rushing towards an uninhabited corner, but Donovan runs up to the top turnbuckle before turning around and delivering a huge Tornado DDT- WAIT! CRASH LIFTS DONOVAN UP AND PUSHES HIM OFF OF HIM! CRASH NOW CHARGES TOWARDS DONOVAN- BUT DONOVAN FLOORS HIM WITH A LEG SWEEP!
Rich Russillo: Donovan grabs Crash and slowly drags him into the corner, before tagging in Conor Ryan! Conor and Donovan are both in the ring, AND DONOVAN CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING FOREARM SMASH IN THE CORNER! CONOR CHARGING IN NOW, AND HE HITS CRASH WITH A DROPKICK IN THE CORNER! Crash stumbling out of the corner, and Conor runs up to the middle rope before hitting Crash with a diving hurricanrana! Crash was just sent to the opposite side of the ring, AND THAT ALLOWS HIM TO TAG IN HULK!
Persephone: If this place gets sued that won’t affect us or anything right? I’ll just not say his name just in case. That other big guy just ran in the ring and hit Conor with a big boot, but since this hasn’t been going for very long Conor’s able to get back up pretty quickly. Big guy is going for an irish whip on Conor now, sending him to the ropes, but Conor jumps onto the middle rope and delivers a springboard kick to the big dude’s head. That didn’t take him down though.
James Peters: Conor sending Hulk into the corner before charging in, AND HE HITS A HUGE KNEE TO THE HEAD! Conor tagging Donovan in now, AND NOW DONOVAN CHARGES IN BEFORE HITTING A KNEE OF HIS OWN! Hulk slowly stumbles out of the corner, AND NOW DONOVAN BEGINS RUNNING THE ROPES, BEFORE HITTING A HUGE RUNNING SUPERKICK! Parental Advisory doesn’t seem to like this much at all.
(The camera shifts over to ringside, and Korey and Jesse both look unamused, meanwhile Hannah is trying to encourage Hulk and Crash to get back into the match.)
Rich Russillo: Yet another tag by Donovan to Conor, and now Conor runs the ropes- BUT WAIT A MINUTE! JESSE BARLOW JUST GRABBED CONOR BY THE LEGS! I DON’T THINK THE REFEREE CAN SEE JESSE’S LEGS FROM WHERE HE IS, AND NOW HULK CHARGES TOWARDS HIM- BUT CONOR IS ABLE TO SLIDE UNDER HIM FROM BETWEEN HIS LEGS, CAUSING HULK TO BOUNCE INTO THE ROPES AND FALL TO THE MAT!
Persephone: What an idiot. Conor’s rushing up to the top rope, and he just hit the Cold Sun or whatever he calls that shooting star press. Conor now just tagged Donovan back in, and it looks like he’s about to finish this.
James Peters: BANKRUPT! DONOVAN DUKE WITH A GROUNDED VERSION OF HIS USUAL GUILLOTINE CHOKE, AND THAT’S IT! HULK TAPS OUT!! HULK TAPS OUT TO DONOVAN DUKE!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners…. CONOR RYAN, AND DOOONNOOOVAAANNNN DUUUUUKKKEE!!!!!!
James Peters: Well, that wasn’t very long, but nonetheless congratulations to Conor Ryan and Donovan Duke for winning their first match as an official tag team-
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD!!!!
James Peters: KOREY GAINES JUST HIT CONOR IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH A SLEDGEHAMMER! DONOVAN GOES TO TRY AND FIGHT BACK, BUT JESSE IMMEDIATELY SLIDES IN WITH ONE OF HIS OWN AND HITS DONOVAN IN THE MIDSECTION WITH IT, FORCING HIM TO HIS KNEES! JESSE GOES TO STRIKE AGAIN, BUT DONOVAN MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING BEFORE HE COULD GET HIT AGAIN!
(Donovan Duke crawls to the bottom of the ramp, clearly frustrated and unable to even think about the impromptu match win he just got as Korey and Jesse begin to attack Conor. He turns around, and Jesse and Korey both have grins on their faces as Korey picks Conor up. He’s now hurt after that shot with the sledgehammer, and can’t do much now as he knows he is outnumbered, forcing him to just back up the ramp and watch.)
James Peters: Oh God. Korey is just holding Conor in a full nelson, meanwhile Jesse is preparing the sledgehammer as if it was a baseball bat! Jesse please don’t do it! Please don’t- NO!
Rich Russillo: JESSE HITS CONOR RIGHT IN THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD WITH THE SLEDGEHAMMER! CONOR IMMEDIATELY JUST DROPPED TO THE MAT AND BLOOD IS ALREADY RUSHING DOWN HIS HEAD, BUT JESSE AND KOREY AREN’T STOPPING THERE! KOREY JUST PICKED HIS SLEDGEHAMMER BACK UP, AND BOTH MEN ARE HITTING CONOR OVER AND OVER WITH THAT SLEDGEHAMMER, AND DONOVAN CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT NOW!
James Peters: Jesse and Korey are sharing some words with Donovan that I can’t really hear from here, but it’s pretty obvious that Conor is out of it! In a matter of moments he’s formed a huge pool of blood, someone needs to come out here and check on him quickly! Jesse, Korey, and Hannah all have just evil looks on their faces, is Conor gonna okay!?
Persephone: Look at him. Would YOU be okay if that happened to you? Obviously he’s hurt, very hurt. I’d be surprised if he’s even-
James Peters: KOREY JUST HIT CONOR IN THE HEAD WITH THE SLEDGEHAMMER FOR A SECOND TIME!
Rich Russillo: Oh my God. Poor Conor, and poor Donovan. There’s no way Conor is making it to Territorial Invasion!
(‘Player Haters’ Ball’ hits, and the crowd begins to boo as Jesse, Korey, and Hannah just laugh at Donovan seeing what they just did to Conor. Donovan Duke can’t believe his eyes, but is clearly still feeling the effects of the sledgehammer shot as he is forced to use the barricade to try and pull himself up. As Donovan slowly begins backing up the ramp in complete horror, multiple officials begin walking out towards the ring to tend to Conor while Voltage fades away from the performance center.)
(The scene fades from ringside and reopens to a pre-recorded segment.)
(Images from the early days of SOSA Henderson’s career starts flashing on the screen. In the first video clip, SOSA Henderson is seen walking down the streets of Philadelphia. He’s then seen competing in a run down gym, as he jumps off the top turnbuckle in a casual attire. The footage focuses on SOSA’s first sparring sessions and then it cuts to one of his first matches that was performed live in front of a small crowd and hosted in a high school gym)
SOSA Henderson: My path to greatness was not an easy one. I’ve started off on the streets of Philadelphia, a city that never truly gave me the opportunities I wanted. I had to take those opportunities instead, I had to make a name for myself when nobody was believing in me, thinking that I could never break out and become the EAW Elitist I am today. I had to scratch and claw, I had to grind every single day of my life to get to the point I am today.
(The highlight reel transitions to the days SOSA Henderson spent in Japan, perfecting his craft in the Japanese pro circuit. SOSA Henderson is seen going back and forth against very tough and stiff opponents, exchanging knee strikes, German suplexes and overall high impact moves. The flashback ends with SOSA Henderson successfully pinning a local competitor and celebrating in front of the Japanese crowd)
SOSA Henderson: Japan was like an anvil to me. It helped me shape the person I am today. I am a thug, through and through. Japan made me invincible. I can’t help but laugh at these pussies who wrestle over here in the US thinking they are edgy because they do “strong style” shit. Bitch, please. I witnessed the real strong style. No, scratch that. Even better. I was FORGED by it. I was forged by the anvil that is Japan.
(The highlight reel then cuts to a sequence of SOSA Henderson having a boxing match with full on boxing gloves and attire, in what seems to be a pub of some sort. The feed then fast forwards to yet another set, but this time it seems to be some sort of Lucha Wrestling event and SOSA Henderson is seen flying around the ring performing very spectacular moves)
SOSA Henderson: Most of today’s rappers claim they’ve seen it all. Nah, son. SOSA Henderson has seen it all in pro wrestling. I’ve been all over the world, I’ve boxed, I’ve wrestled, I’ve fought everyone, everywhere, at any given time. And that’s when I wasn’t even signed to EAW yet. I was already traveling the world, perfecting my craft and improving myself, day after day after day. Now I’m SOSA Henderson, the New Breed excellence. Yesterday? I was a nobody. I had nothing but dedication and passion for this industry from day fucking one and I’m proud to say those sacrifices paid off.
(We then cut to the modern days. SOSA Henderson makes his debut in EAW back in 2018. We see flashes of his very first matches and then the epic feud he had against another promising rookie at the time, Noah Reigner. The highlight reel shows he two going face to face back in February 2019 and then fighting each other over the course of the month after their initial confrontation)
SOSA Henderson: Noah Reigner? I hate that motherfucker, don’t get me wrong. However one thing has to be said. He helped SOSA get his name out there. I will never forget my Rivalry with Noah. At the time we were both young guns willing to prove our worth and make a name for ourselves in an industry that was looking at us as the underdogs. We succeeded. Or at least, I succeeded and I stuck around despite shit getting tough. I put my name out there and I became the Elitist I am today.
(The highlight reel then transitions to the late part of March 2019. In particular, shots from the New Breed Gauntlet match at Under Siege are shown. SOSA Henderson somehow manages to emerge victorious at the end of it and then he moves on to face The Visual Prophet at Grand Rampage for the New Breed Championship. A match that he once again won. The highlight reel focuses on the post match moments as SOSA Henderson is celebrating with the title over his shoulder)
SOSA Henderson: 2019 was the year of SOSA. After I was done with Noah, I moved on to win the Gauntlet match and EARN my shot at the New Breed Championship. That’s right, “earn”, because that’s what SOSA is all about. Ever since day one, I’ve worked hard and earned every single thing that happened in my career including my New Breed title reign. That Championship did not define SOSA, SOSA defines the New Breed division. I elevated the division and brought it to new heights.
(The highlight reel then shows a montage of clips from the current EAW run of SOSA Henderson. We start off with moments taken from his massive return in late 2019, and then we transition to the key moments of his 2020. The highlight reel focuses on his battle against the former World Heavyweight Champion Drake King. The two squared off in a match that pushed both of their bodies to their respective limits. SOSA is seen missing a massive dive from the stage and crashing through a table. In the end, Drake King was successful in his title defense. The highlight reel then moves on to Pain for Pride, with SOSA Henderson fighting for the Cash in the Vault briefcase. A couple of insane ladder dives are shown and overall action shots of SOSA Henderson cleaning house. We move on to Bloodsport with shots from The Triple Threat match against Candice Blair and Ahren Fournier. This time around, SOSA Henderson is seen hitting the Steal Yo Bitch on Ahren Fournier but also losing to Ahren after Candice locked him in the Candy Lock)
SOSA Henderson: 2020 was a difficult year not only for the world as a whole but for SOSA as well. Ever since I’ve lost my precious New Breed title, my New Breed Majesty has been taking hits. But I’m still here. I’m still grinding and I’m still on the hunt for gold. That little bitch Drake King got away with a win he never truly deserved, Darcy May Morgan stole that briefcase but she’s finna choke the cash in, mark my words. As for Candice and Ahren, well I’m fighting for a World Championship while Candice is fighting for the broads title and Ahren is the captain of team nobodies. Guess who got the biggest deal?
(The camera then transitions to a dark room.)
(SOSA Henderson is in the middle of it as some soft white light is illuminating his face that is contrasting to the background)
SOSA Henderson: Rex McAllister is done. It is about time SOSA Henderson wins the world Championship and becomes the undisputed face of Voltage. Nobody, not a single soul has been through the same grind that SOSA has been through. I don’t even wanna hear it. I’ve seen it all, I’ve done it all. Blood, sweat and tears, I’ve poured all I had for this industry since day motherfucking one. Every moment, every sacrifice, every choice I’ve made has led me to this very moment. This is not one of those Gangsta stories where a thug tries to make it in the big leagues but fails miserably and either gets caught or catches a bullet in the head.
(SOSA pauses a moment before continuing.)
SOSA Henderson: My story is going to have a happy ending. Rex McAllister has had it easy up until this point because he has yet to face a fighter as tough and as talented as me. I absolutely am the biggest threat to Rex McAllister’s title reign which will be short lived. I will make sure it won’t last long. Fuck Rex and everyone who loves him and supports him. He’s nothing more a generic piece of shit, and the “safe” choice when it comes to who holds that championship. He wants to make a big deal about how I got my title shot, I just say that shit was smart. Come TI… imma do it the right way and take that championship, showing Rex and everyone else in Elite Answers Wrestling just who ‘BULLETPROOF” really is.
(A smirk crosses SOSA’s face, and lingers there for a moment before fading into a promotional ad for Territorial Invasion.)

[The Garden of Affectional Tempest (GOAT)]
(Terry Chambers sits there after being practically forced to spend spa day with the rest of the Team members, it was his obligation just like the rest of them to make Minerva feel as she was part of the team. Minerva sits next to Ahren and Myles, she is having her nails down, feet in the spa water, Myles begrudgingly also was forced to sit next to her, she hadn’t spoken a word to him, as Minerva has been more of a loner. TLA is all smiles as they work on his feet along with Ahren, Terry looks down at the manicurist.)
Terry: STOP TICKLING ME!
Manicurist: I am so sorry Mr. Chambers, would you like a wax job?
Terry: Uh, what kind of business do you run around here!?
Ahren: A WAX job you Neanderthal! They wax your legs and feet, it is heavenly, right Minerva?
Minerva: I don’t know, never had one.
(Ahren looks shocked.)
Ahren: Heathen! Carmella get this woman a Wax job before you pain her nails!
(The Manicurist nods, then goes to get the wax ready.)
Ahren: You too Chambers, and Myles. TLA I am sure you are for it.
TLA: Si mon, amigo. Wax Job it is.
Terry: This is ridiculous, we should be working out! We should be sweating our asses off and preparing for Dynasty and Showdown! Why are we getting our nails done!? Mud baths, this is stupid!
TLA: Spanish women like a guy who is in touch with his soft side vato. Besides, this is about reaching out to Minerva and at the same time pampering ourselves, right carnal?
TLA: You mean Orale.
Ahren: Right, that.
(Minerva is listening to all of this while staring at Myles who is sitting there frozen, emotionless, watching the Bonsai trees slowly grow, or so he thinks. The Koi pond in front of him.)
Minerva: What color?
Myles: Wh… what?
Minerva: What color should I paint my nails?
Myles: Why the hell are you asking me?
Minerva: I figured that you guys are trying to bond with me, and this is my way of bonding by asking you a simple question, what color should I paint my nails? Look, if you are still pissed about the last Voltage, it was about winning. Don’t hold it against me, you would have done the same thing.
Myles: You’re right, I would have.
TLA: Myles, the woman is flirting with you, buey.
Minerva: I am not flirting, I am engaging in conversation, but that is fine, I will relegate to my go to color, black and …..
Myles: Midnight blue.
(Her eyebrow arches surprised that Myles even responded, she was simply testing him, cracking a smirk. TLA puts a thumbs up for Myles causing him to scoff.)
Minerva: Midnight blue it is.
Terry: Great, so we are all bonding and I’m going to be hairless and feel like a Metro-Sexual Carnivore.
Ahren: That is a brilliant name!
Terry: Man, shut up before….
TLA: Zen vato, remember breathing in and breathing out…. WAX on and WAX off….
(Myles, Ahren, TLA and Minerva all sit there quietly for a second before they all bust out laughing at Terry’s expense. As he starts seething, he doesn’t even realize the hot wax being poured on his legs and feet.)
Terry: TWV IVF UTIEVFUTFVU TEFVU OWQVCUVWQUW VU V UUVCUWVIWBIWVBUVBI PGBIYGGQY!
(About an hour later, all five team members sit in the mud pool, Ahren has slices of cucumbers on his eyes, Myles is eating his, Minerva looks over, shaking her head.)
Minerva: You’re not supposed to be eating those.
Myles: What the hell are they for?
Minerva: Don’t ask me how I know this, exfoliation.
Myles: Exfoliation? Bloody hell. What is this mud supposed to do, Fournier?
Ahren: My dear boy, it helps with the skin and pores. Trust me when all of you get out of here, you will feel like new men….. and woman.
TLA: I gotta admit, this is wild, feels good especially on my cajones, buey. Now I know why Those Maidens got all hot and bothered at Pain for Pride. I….
(Minerva slowly pushes herself further away from the four men, but not too far from Myles who is trying not to engage too much in conversation with her, but understands that the whole point to this exercise is to make Minerva feel like she is part of the team. Terry is obviously not enjoying himself, ready to get out, the rest are particularly enjoying themselves.)
Minerva: So who is next?
TLA: That would be….
Terry: Me. We are going to work out, Cross Fit.
(A collective groan echoed through the pool of therapeutic mud. It was apparent that no one wanted to go work out at Terry’s Gym or even do Cross Fit.)
Ahren: No, it’s Myles turn, then we can do you and Minerva last.
Minerva: Me? You really want to do what I like for fun?
Ahren: Unfortunately, this is what all of this is about, bonding. So long as we are not sacrificing any animals, then yes, we will do what you like.
(Another Sheepish smile comes across her face, this time it starts to worry the other four members, while Myles is deep in thought not knowing what to do.)
(After about half an hour, they were moved into the stone therapy move and the Zen Garden, the ladies offered them all freshly squeezed organic juices to cleanse their impurities, considering Minerva is all impure, she was given a gallon. Sitting with their legs crossed, Terry opens one eye looking around, they are all sweating, smelling the essence of limes and lavender.)
Terry: Why are we doing this?
Ahren: Deep meditation, once you are in tune with your own soul, then we can defeat anything, why are you continuing to act like a caveman, Chambers? Accept the Zen, let it flow into your life, it will make you a better man.
TLA: A better lover too.
Terry: Are you serious?
TLA: Yeah, I am.
Terry: I didn’t mean it like that, I meant…. Oh, never mind.
Minerva: Will you guys shut up, I am actually digging this. I am in touch with my Zen and…
(Minerva opens one eye looking over at Myles who hasn’t moved but can sense her looking over at him.)
Myles: You are raping me with those eyes, Sheila.
(His eyes shot open, looking right at Minerva who licks her lips, he quickly turns back, closing his eyes. TLA starts to chuckle, leaning in on Myles.)
TLA: I have had many Poons but never a Gypsy Poon, got for it vato.
Myles: Shut up, TLA.
TLA: Myles and Minerva sitting in a tree….
Myles: You want a bloody team building exercise or to beat the Zen out of your ass!?
Ahren: GENTLEMEN! WOOOO SAAAAHHHHHHH!
Terry: I hate you all. I feel like I lost my man card today.
(They all open their eyes, looking at one another, before Minerva starts to giggle some.)
TLA: See, it’s working!
(As the Team Building continues, Minerva has a sly smirk on her face, looking over at Myles who keeps his eyes closed, not making any sort of eye contact. As their spa day continued Team Voltage was set out for the next chapter of their bonding with Minerva, the Question is, what was Next?)
(It was Movie Night at Myles’.)
[ SCREEN BAR – LATER THAT NIGHT]
(Popping over to Myles Apartment, TLA was already sitting on the couch, he had a Corona in hand, Ahren was on the other side of the couch, sitting there, slowly eating some sour gummy worms. Terry was still pouting about not going to work out, he had a huge bottle of Smart Water, finally Myles was popping some corn, they were still waiting for Minerva who quickly knocked on the door, Myles walked over to open it, the smell of his cologne shower followed him.)
TLA: That chingon bathed in Drakkar Noir.
Ahren: I think it smells kind of nice.
Terry: He smells like a whore.
TLA: Hey Terry, did you call Consuela, make sure you got permission to stay out late, vato?
Terry: After this is over…..
Ahren: Shhhhh! The previews are on!
(Myles opens the door, Minerva stands there in some tight jeans, a black loos halter top and heels, she holds up a twelve pack of Fosters.)
Minerva: Fosters…. Australian for beer.
(In that moment, Myles knew this was going to be an exceptionally long night.)
(‘No Sleep Leak’ Instrumental By Lil Uzi Vert starts playing as a newcomer with the name of Puma X walks through the entrance ramp, as he is seen smiling and ready for the match. Meanwhile, the announcer, Bella Braxton is ready to start her introductions.)
Bella Braxton: The following singles match is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, making his way to the ring, from Oakland, California, weighing in at 185 pounds, he is THE SKILL OF X…. PUMA X!!!!
James Peters: Look at that man right there. A new guy debuting in Voltage, with the name of Puma X. This man has potential!
Rich Russillo: Exactly. However, he is put in a very hard challenge as his opponent won’t be easy to beat!
Persephone: This dude looks like a loser.
James Peters: He isn’t and he is going to prove it tonight.
Persephone: No. I don’t think he will.
Rich Russillo: Let’s be positive just for this night. Time for his opponent to come out. Oh, I can’t wait!
(As Puma X is seen posing on the top turnbuckle, the music switched to ‘Middle Fingers’ by MISSIO. Korey Gaines comes out with Hannah Marin and Jesse Barlow walking together behind him. Barlow is seen clapping his hand, trying to hype his tag team partner up while Hannah Marrin just followed, Gaines quickly ran into the ring and started a staredown with Puma X before Bella Braxton continued the introduction.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, accompanied by Hannah Marin and Jesse Barlow, from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, weighing in at 170 pounds, he is one-half of Parental Advisory, he is THE AERIAL BASTARD….. KOREY GAINES!!!!!
James Peters: Like I said, Korey Gaines isn’t just Jesse Barlow Plus One. He is his own man. He doesn’t deserve to be called the guy with Jesse Barlow, but instead he deserved to get his own name recognized.
Persephone: Boring guy.
Rich Russillo: He isn’t boring. He is a very interesting man that we need to be invested in.
James Peters: This match will hopefully open your eyes, Persephone. These two have talent.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: And the match is underway! You could see both men circling around the ring right now, with Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin walking outside, spectating the whole match. Still in the circling part, they start slowing their movement down a little bit.
Rich Russillo: And the lockup is fast! Puma X with the early headlock, got pushed to the ropes and he went with a handstand flip and he’s in front of Korey Gaines again. A lockup again, this time with both men, trying to outpower one another. Gaines threw him to the ropes again and a clothesline attempt, X ducked and went to the other side of the ropes and went with a discus punch!
James Peters: Reverse Hurricanrana! X quickly got him to the turnbuckle, but Gains used the turnbuckle to help him, Gaines climbed on top of the turnbuckle, making X collapsed with the turnbuckle, Gaines flipped and landed on the middle of the ring and he went to the man at the turnbuckle with a fast Corner Dropkick! Gaines with a heavy chop to his chest! Jesse Barlow is cheering for him down there.
Rich Russillo: Now, Korey Gaines got him in a headlock. But X quickly with a fast Belly to Back to counter him, but Gaines managed to land on his own two feet and he pushed X to the ropes, he slaps X! He throws him back to the turnbuckle but Puma X countered and now Gaines is at the turnbuckle! A cannonball!
James Peters: Gaines now falling on the middle rope, X sees an opportunity as he is hyping it up, the crowd is just enjoying his outlandish movements, this man is entertaining! He went to the ropes and charged, Tiger Feint Kick, missed as Gaines managed to stand up! Elbow to the back of X’s head!
Rich Russillo: Gaines with a German Suplex attempt, but X refused! X with some punches to his face, and Gaines let go, a lockup done by both of them.
Persephone: This looks boring right now.
James Peters: It’s alright. You need to give them a little bit more time. Gaines managed to push X to the turnbuckle, and an elbow managed to help him! He throws X to the ropes now, Dropkick, missed as X put his hands on the ropes without running! He quickly got a grab of Korey Gaines’s legs and a Boston Crab is locked in!
Rich Russillo: Jesse Barlow is trying to attack him verbally, talking trash in front of him while he just nods sarcastically, he pulled out his tongue on Barlow! Barlow is probably angry right now as Hannah Marin is seen trying to calm him down. Gaines managed to get out of the lock while pushing X out of the way, the referee didn’t focus on him, BARLOW WITH A JUMPING SLAP! He acts like nothing happened at all! Puma X went to the referee, telling him about what Jesse Barlow did but the referee won’t call for a disqualification because he didn’t see it!
James Peters: AND KOREY GAINES WITH A ROLLUP, IS IT EN- OF COURSE IT’S NOT ENOUGH! A kick to his head from Puma X. He quickly got him up again, DRAGON SUPLEX! KOREY GAINES IS DIZZY, HE WENT TO THE TURNBUCKLE TO HELP HIM SIT! Puma X used this to his advantage as he is now playing with him!
Persephone: Will that make him interesting, though? I don’t think so.
Rich Russillo: Korey Gaines is grabbing his face right now as Puma X starts posing in the middle of the ring. Korey quickly got him and pushed him near the turnbuckle, it’s his turn to chop now! WOAH, THAT IS HEAVY! Puma got out of the ring, standing on the apron and HE IS IN AGAIN, WITH THE ASSIST OF THE ROPES, HE DID A SLINGSHOT JUMPING NECKBREAKER! HE IS GOING FOR THE COVER! IS IT ENOUGH?
Referee: ONE!!!! TWO!!!! THR-
James Peters: Of course. The answer is no. There is no reason to lose for Korey Gaines as it’s not even a signature or even a finishing move. He grabs him by the head and he goes to throw Korey Gaines outside of the ring. He is going to pull something crazy, running and charging to The Aerial Bastard, WAIT WHAT IS BARLOW AND MARIN DOING THERE, THEY SAVED GAINES!!!!! TOPE CON HILO FROM PUMA X GOT TO THE WRONG PEOPLE!
Rich Russillo: Puma thought that he got the right guy, he posed with happiness but then it turned into shock as he actually bumped into Jesse Barlow. He is grabbing his head right now. He quickly went to the real target and he is just attacking him with elbows down there! Puma quickly went and threw Gaines to the steps, but Gaines jumped on it and bounced, TORNADO DDT!
James Peters: That was a very good counter from Gaines, now he is throwing Puma back into the middle of the ring. He went to the top turnbuckle, READY FOR A FROG SPLASH!!!! HE POSES WITH PRIDE, HE FLIES!!!!! OH, PUMA X GOT UP OUT OF NOWHERE AND COUNTERED HIM WITH A DROPKICK! They are both down now! Puma X put his right hand on top, he is going for the cover!
Referee: ONE!!! TWO!!! THR-
Rich Russillo: Kick out by Korey Gaines! That was a little bit unexpected. They are both lying in the middle of the ring and it looks like both of them are going to roll to the turnbuckle! As they are both seen struggling, we see Barlow also struggling to get up as he still wants to cheer on his partner.
James Peters: And the match continues! Hannah Marin right now tries to help Barlow get up as she really is a great manager. Now, both competitors are up! They looked at each other and they quickly thought of something, THEY WENT CHARGED, THEY BOTH SUPERKICKED EACH OTHER AND THEY ARE DOWN AGAIN!!!! Korey Gaines went outside of the ring to his friends while Puma X was lying in the ring, tired.
Rich Russillo: Hannah is seen lecturing Gaines about his performance right now. As you can see, Gaines is holding the steps to assist his body and Marin is just telling him about what he should do to Puma X. The referee is actually counting but they don’t really care.
Persephone: So a countout win for Puma X will make me amazed?
James Peters: Puma X managed to crawl to the area and he looked at Gaines and Marin. Barlow is just looking behind him, so he shouldn’t try any dangerous stunt, or else Barlow will make sure that he fails! X is crawling to the ropes right now, he needs something that’ll help him stand up, the corner will do it! Meanwhile, Gaines had enough rest and he got into the ring as the referee counted three. He quickly went to X with a Stinger Splash! He lifted X and put him to the top turnbuckle, I KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING RIGHT NOW!!!!!
Rich Russillo: GAINES FLIES HIGH IN THE SKY AND A TOP ROPE HURRICANRAN- OHHHHHH WHAT?! PUMA X LANDED ON HIS OWN TWO FEET AND KOREY GAINES JUST REALIZED THAT HE FAILED! That look from Puma X is serious, he isn’t playing no more. However, Gaines definitely got his pants covered with brown after that.
James Peters: PUMA WITH A QUICK KICK TO THE BACK OF GAINES’S HEAD, CHARGED AND RAN TO THE ROPES, TIGER FEINT KICK!!!! HE NOW GOT THE GRAB OF GAINES AND THREW HIM TO THE ROPES BUT GAINES COUNTERED AND HE’S THE ONE THROWING, OHHHH HANDSPRING CUTTER BY PUMA X!!!!! Hannah Marin is disappointed as we can see by the look on her face. She is upset right now!
Rich Russillo: PUMA ISN’T WASTING ANY TIME!!!! HE WENT TO THE TOP ROPE ALREADY? HE WANTS TO GO FOR HIS FINISHER!!!
James Peters: WAIT, HANNAH MARIN IS DISTRACTING THE REFEREE RIGHT NOW!!! WHAT IS HER PLAN?
Persephone: Isn’t it obvious enough? The man with the low bar is going to interf-
Rich Russillo: JESSE BARLOW TOOK THIS CHANCE AND ATTACKED PUMA, HE PULLED HIS LEGS AWAY AND PUMA SLIPPED OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Hannah Marin stopped her part and let the referee look at the beaten Puma X. Jesse Barlow also pretends like everything is cool. What a cheap tactic. OH, WHAT WAS THAT? While Jesse is pretending that he is not doing anything, he tried to sneak some kicks to Puma X’s face as he was “walking” while talking to the referee.
James Peters: Korey Gaines gains some energy and he is now ready to fight again. He saw Puma X outside so he quickly went to the top rope like always. But this time, he has a real plan! He is ready in position, we are going to look at it in three, two, one…. DRAGONRANA!!!!!! HE QUICKLY THROWS PUMA X INTO THE RING AND WENT FOR THE COVER!!!!! THIS SHOULD BE IT!
Referee: ONE!!! TWO!!!! THR-
Rich Russillo: HE GOT HIS HAND UP. WHAT?!!!!!! EVEN KOREY GAINES COULDN’T BELIEVE IT. How was that even possible? Maybe because it was just a normal Dragonrana and not a very brutal move that can put away anybody. Gaines is now standing in a corner waiting for Puma X to be standing too, Puma with full commitment, stood up with nothing but determination, A SUPERKICK TO HIS FACE!!!! OHHHH, WHATT??!!!!!! Puma didn’t just get hit with a superkick, he asked Korey Gaines for more!!!! ANOTHER SUPERKICK TO HIS FACE!!!! ANOTHER ONE!!!! PUMA IS DOWN ON ONE KNEE!!!!
James Peters: LAST SUPERKICK AND HE IS DOWN!!!! HANNAH MARIN NOW CLAPPING FOR HER CLIENT! KOREY GAINES WENT TO THE TOP ROPE WITHOUT HESITATION, HE KNOWS THAT THIS WILL BE IT! OKIEEEEEEEEEE DOKIEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! HE GOES FOR THE COVER! THIS IS THE END!!!!!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!! TWO!!!!!!! THREEE!!!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: I knew it! I knew that Korey Gaines was the one to win this match!
Rich Russillo: However, we can say that Puma X is literally the MVP in this match. He had to overcome 3 people at the same time, two are known to be very dirty competitors.
Persephone: I don’t know if he can have a future in here. The guy lost… To Korey Gaines.
James Peters: We just have to believe in it. This match right here showed that he will actually be very great in the future. Wait and see.
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, KOREYY GAINESS!!!!!!!
(‘Middle Fingers’ by MISSIO started playing as the referee raised Korey Gaines’s hand. Jesse Barlow and Hannah Marin just clapped their hands, they were proud of him. Meanwhile, Puma X is seen walking to the entrance ramp, disappointed with the results. However, he knew that this is just a beginning to his journey in EAW.)
(Commercial break for Ugg boots, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and Northface jackets. It’s officially fall :blessed:)
(Voltage returns and cuts to Bella.)
Bella Braxton: The Following Contest is scheduled For ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Huntington Beach, CA.! Weighing in at 213 Pounds, he is “THE NATURAL BORN KILLER” SHANE GATES!!!
(As the lights fade to black 4 spotlights on the ground appear, they slowly begin to transition to red as Overlord begins to play. As the last light on the ground near the Tron turns to red. The Arena lights go Blood red and white fog appears on the stage. Shane Gates Walks out in a sleeveless black hooded trench coat with the words NATURAL BORN KILLER engraved on the back with blood stains dripping on the bottom of the word.)
James Peters: A very dangerous and determined man is Shane Gates, and we saw earlier his issues continue with Sienna Jade and now Adam Lucas. He wants to make a statement tonight against a member of Team Voltage in the Brand Warfare Match, Terry Chambers.
Rich Russillo: He does, and we have seen a more vicious and content side of Gates this season where he has come close to some very impressive victories, tonight he gets the chance at another.
Persephone: He needs to shave, that is gross.
(Shane walks to the ring and after he enters, he takes off the hood with a cold emotionless stare to the camera. As his music fades, “Natural” by Imagine Dragons starts to play throughout the arena as Terry Chambers slowly walks out wearing his coat, he slowly stands in front of the entranceway pointing right at Shane Gates before he starts to make his march toward the ring.)
Bella Braxton: His opponent, From Detroit, MI! Weighing in at 257 pounds! He is “THE BARBARIC CARNIVORE” …. TERRY CHAMBERS!!!!
(Terry continues to walk toward the ring, stopping for a moment and looking around the arena again.)
Rich Russillo: Terry Chambers on Dynasty took out Mason Massacre, a man many said reminded them of pre-Terry now, thanks to what many thinks was the feud with Dr. Bethany Blue that turned it all around. He took out Massacre forcing Team Dynasty to find an alternate in Khamsin, and now he brings that viciousness which we saw at Bloodsport here tonight.
James Peters: There is no doubt that Terry Chambers is going to continue his roll, he has a huge obligation at Territorial Invasion, at the same time, Shane Gates is out to make a point, this is going to be a great match.
Persephone: At least Terry’s beard is trimmed and all nice, he isn’t as cute as Rexy is but he has potential.
(Terry Chambers makes his way to the apron, in one leap hopping on and jumping over the ropes. He takes off his coat and stares at Shane Gates who gets right up to his face, the referee wastes no time and calls for the bell.)
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
James Peters: Terry with a huge right hand, Shane with a huge right of his own! These two men throwing the haymakers at each other over and over, but Terry is starting to get the upper hand, backing up Gates to the ropes, whipping him into the ropes with a huge clothesline but Gates doesn’t fall! He stumbles back some, Terry runs at him against with a clothesline this time taking him down! Gates rolls out of the ring to get a breather!
Rich Russillo: Smart on the part of Gates, while he is a big, menacing man, so is Terry Chambers, two men that are so evenly matched! Gates took a step back, Terry has been white hot since the Season has started, and the referee is about to administer the count.
(Gates shaking his head, walks around the ring, refusing to get back in arguing with the referee that Terry is using closed fists. The referee shakes it off and continues to count.)
(Shane Gates rolls in at the last second, Terry charges in and Gates rolls out of the ring again, this time Terry rolls out behind him and starts to chase him around, Gates runs around the ring, slides in, Terry slides in after him but is met with boots to the back of his head.)
James Peters: Shane Gates was waiting! He is kicking Terry to the back of his head repeatedly over and over! Shane is trying to keep him down on the mats! Shane now grabbing Terry by the hair, whipping him into the turnbuckle and charging in with a vicious elbow! Now a forearm and a bulldog…. NO! Terry picks up Shane Gates into an Atomic Drop! Shane is staggering, Terry runs as Gates turns into a huge clothesline! Gates falls again, he gets up and walks into a body slam! Gates gets up and EXPLODER SUPLEX ON GATES! Terry quickly goes for a cover!
Rich Russillo: A quick kick out by Gates! Terry with some stiff right hands, grabbing him by the beard as Gates screams! Terry picks him up, but Gates with a Headbutt! Terry staggers back, Gates picks him up, GORILLA SPINEBUSTER SLAM! Terry is down after that move! Gates doesn’t make a cover, he steps back, as Terry starts to slowly get up, Gates runs at him with a Big Boot, NO! Terry shifts his weight, Gates misses, he turns into a FLYING KNEE! IT HIT GATES RIGHT IN THE JAW! Terry roars before watching Gates slowly get up, Terry whips him into the ropes, he goes for a back-body drop, NO! A HUGE FOREARM TO THE BACK OF TERRY! NOW GATES PICKS HIM UP AND PILEDRIVER! SHANE GATES WITH A HUGE JUMPING PILEDRIVER ON TERRY! GATES HOOKS THE FAR LEG FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: Terry kicks out, that is pretty impressive after he was dropped on his head, it just shows its full of rocks.
James Peters: Gates is a little surprised that he didn’t have him down for the count! He grabs Terry and starts walloping him in the face with closed fists! Now he is choking Terry! The referee is trying to control the match, he’s screaming at Gates to stop! Administering the count!
James Peters: Gates lets go of the choke right before the end of the count! He grabs Terry, sitting him up and driving his knees into Terry’s middle back, Another! Another! Now he grinds the knee into the back with a chin lock! Terry is in a lot of trouble right now! Terry is trying to hang in there but Gates knows, he has to slow this match for him to have a chance, Terry has been one of the hottest stars on Voltage, he’s a new man and if Gates lets this go on any further, it could go into Chambers favor! He can’t let the big man get up to his feet, Gates is playing this smart.
Rich Russillo: He really is. Gates is trying to suck out all the energy from Terry, taking away the use of his middle back, a great place to concentrate his efforts on considering Terry relies on power, take out his back and those moves are nullified. So far we have seen an even match, but everyone is watching this with bated breath, we saw earlier the video of Team Voltage trying to bond with Minerva, and I think that an injury to Terry much like what happened to Dynasty would be devastating. Gates is grinding that knee in and the referee is asking Terry who screams NO.
Persephone: Terry needs to preserve himself and just quit, that way our team is still alright, and we get to Rexy versus that blonde girl.
(The crowd chants “TERRY! TERRY! TERRY! TERRY!” as he is being grounded by the knee to the back by Shane Gates. He is feeding off the fan energy, stomping his feet and trying to power out of it.)
James Peters: He is feeding off their energy! He is trying his best to break this hold, but has it already done the damage! Terry is now trying to get back to his feet, he is overpowering Gates who is no weak man! Terry is starting to break it! He is finally to his knees! Look at him, feeding off the fans! Terry is back on his feet; Gates is still holding the knee to his back. Terry with a back elbow to the gut! Another elbow to the gut! Terry scoops up Gates into a Back-Body Drop! Listen to the socially distanced crowd!
(The crowd roars)
James Peters: Terry is obviously hurt! He is holding his back, slowly getting up as Gates is finding his legs, up and wobbly, Terry hooks him, CHAMBERS OF PAIN! WHAT A DDT! THIS ONE IS OVER! TERRY THOUGH IS STILL HOLDING HIS BACK! HE FINALLY ROLLS OVER GATES FOR THE PINFALL!
Rich Russillo: GATES WITH A SHOULDER UP! That hesitation was exactly what was the difference between a two and a three count! I’d say the toll of this match is starting to show on Terry’s body, I’m not sure how much he has left to give. Terry is now waiting for Shane Gates to get back to his feet but the Natural Born Killer is already up, there’s no need for him to rest. The match keeps going. Terry goes for a scoop slam but Shane Gates is quick enough to plant his boots on the mat and anchor himself to the ring, making it so Terry couldn’t lift him up properly. Shane then responds with a stiff shot to the midsection of Terry Chambers as he has to let go of the scoop slam attempt.
James Peters: Shane Gates now follows it up with a stiff Irish Whip that sends him back first against the turnbuckle. Terry Chambers collapses to the mat after that stiff collision against the turnbuckle and… what the hell is Shane Gates thinking here? Gates has now exited the ring but he is dragging Terry Chambers bear the steel post, what is going on? Oh Lord, Shane Gates is wrapping Terry Chambers around the steel post! One hand on the neck, the other on the boots as Terry is bent around the cold steel. The referee starts the count and Shane Gates has to let go before he gets counted out. He gets right back inside the ring as he tries the pin…
Rich Russillo: Not even a one count! Terry Chambers got his shoulder up Immediately but now Shane Gates is in complete control of the bout. Shane Gates gets him up and gets a firm hold of his wrist… EAT DEFEAT… NO, TERRY CHAMBERS COUNTERED IT AT THE VERY LAST SECOND, TERRY TRANSITIONED TO THE BACK OF GATES AND HE NOW GOES FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX! THE BRIDGE! TERRY IS GOING TO WIN THIS ONE RIGHT HERE!
Rich Russillo: SHANE GATES GETS HIS SHOULDER UP! TERRY CHAMBERS CANNOT BELIEVE IT!
James Peters: Oh boy! What a sequence! Terry is now trying to get up, slamming the mat, working on pure adrenaline with as he is trying to muster the strength! Back up to his feet, he grabs and pulls up Gates by the hair, European Forearm! After European Forearm! After European Forearm! He has Gates in trouble, whipping him into the ring, charging in, no Gates ducks, turns and Terry runs into THE KILL SHOT! HE HIT ALL THAT AS TERRY FALLS ON HIS BACK! GATES DROPS ON TERRY FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: He does have rocks in his brain for raising his arm up and not staying down for the pin, come on Terry, give it up!
James Peters: TERRY WITH A SHOUDLER UP! GATES CAN’T BELIEVE IT! HE IS IN SHOCK LOOKING AT THE REFEREE WHO SHAKES HIS HEAD HOLDING UP TWO FINGERS! GATES SCREAMS, SLAMMING THE MATS! PICKING UP TERRY, I THINK HE IS LOOKING TO FINISH THIS SOON AS HE CAN! HE TRIES TO APPLY THE IRON CLAW! HE IS GOING FOR THE RECKONING! TERRY CHAMBERS HAD GRABBED A HOLD OF GATES WRIST! HE IS DOING ALL HE CAN FOR GATES NOT TO LOCK THIS IN! TERRY IS FIGHTING IT! TERRY IS TRYING TO STOP GATES BUT YOU CAN SEE HIS BACK IS PLAYING A HUGE PART IN THIS! TERRY IS HOLDING OFF BUT GATES IS ABOUT TO LOCK IT IN…. NO! KICK IN THE GUT TO GATES! TERRY BACKS UP, CHARGES IN BUT DISCUS CLOTHESLINE BY SHANE GATES AND TERRY CHAMBERS FLIPS INTO A 360! THIS MATCH IS OVER! GATES IS NOT GOING FOR THE PIN! HE PICKS UP TERRY…. SETTING HIM UP…. SUFFER AS ONE! NO!!!! TERRY REVERSES INTO THE GLASGOW KISS! GATES DROPS LIKE A SACK OF POTATOES AND TERRY NOW DROPS FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: GATES GETS THE SHOULDER UP AGAIN! TERRY LOOKS AT THE REFEREE IN SHOCK! WE ALL THOUGHT IT WAS OVER BUT NO! IT IS NOT, TERRY DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HE HAS TO DO TO PUT GATES DOWN FOR GOOD! HE IS SLOWLY GETTING UP, LOOKS LIKE HE IS WAITING FOR GATES TO GET UP!
Persephone: See that headbutt? ROCKS! I am telling you! Hit him again Terry, mercifully end this!
Rich Russillo: He is waiting, as Gates gets to his feet, Terry running full speed, BIG BOOT CAUGHT TERRY AND HE RAN RIGHT INTO THAT! TERRY IS DOWN! GATES IS RUNNING ON PURE ADRENALINE NOW! HE PICKS UP TERRY, HERE WE GO AGAIN WITH THE IRON CLAW! HE HAS IT IN! ALL GATES HAS TO DO IS PICK HIM UP FOR THE CHOKESLAM AND FINISH THE RECKONING! HERE COMES THE CHOKESLAM! NO!!!! TERRY WITH A KICK TO THE GUT! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! GATES LET’S GO AND TERRY WITH HIS OWN CHOKESLAM!!!! NO!!!! GATES BATTERS HIS ARM, LETTING IT GO! GATES WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! GATES DOESN’T GO FOR A PIN! INSTEAD HE CLIMBS THE TOP ROPE! THE BIG MAN IS GETTING UP TO THE VERY TOP! TERRY IS SLOWLY GETTING UP, GATES WITH A FLYING CLOTHESLINE! HE ALMOST TOOK CHAMBERS HEAD OFF AND NOW HE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: STAY DOWN TERRY, DAMN IT!
James Peters: TERRY CHAMBERS SOMEHOW KICKED OUT RIGHT BEFORE THE HAND HIT THREE! GATES HAS NO IDEA HOW TO FINISH THIS MATCH! HE IS STARING BULLETS AT THE FALLEN TERRY CHAMBERS, WAITING FOR HIM TO GET UP! I THINK THAT SHANE GATES IS LOOKING TO PUT HIM AWAY NOW! GATES IS IN THE CORNER…. TERRY IS SLOWLY GETTING UP, HERE WE GO…. GATES RUSHES IN WITH ANOTHER BIG BOOT! NO!!! TERRY CHAMBERS DUCKED! GATES STUMBLES FORWARD, HE TURNS RIGHT INTO THE RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE! THAT KICK TOOK SHANE’S HEAD OFF AND TERRY QUICKLY FALLS ON TOP OF GATES FOR THE COVER!!!
(DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner….. TERRY CHAMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Natural” by Imagine Dragons starts to play throughout the arena, he lies there on the mat next to Shane Gates who starts to stir, Terry slowly gets up to his knees as the referee holds up his arm in victory as the crowd cheers.)
James Peters: What a win! What a match! Both of these two men brought it all and just when you thought Shane Gates had it, Terry would flip the script and vice versa. What an amazing performance by both men here tonight, it could have gone either way!
Rich Russillo: It was amazing, and hats off to Shane Gates, he came to fight and gave it all to Terry Chambers who just keeps on winning. Shane Gates has established himself as a force on Voltage, and Terry is ready to be a leader on the Team Brand Warfare! What a match!
Persephone: It was okay, but the best part of it, it’s over so yeah whatever, congrats to Terry, both guys still suck compared to Rexy.
(Terry finally gets to his feet, holding his arms in the air while Gates rolls out of the ring, on the floor slamming the mat in anger. The referee again points to Terry and Voltage fades into a commercial.)
(Commercial break for the new Poon Palace Netflix Series coming in 2021.)
[ SCREEN BAR – EARLIER IN THE WEEK ]
(Minerva sitting in Myles apartment, couldn’t keep her eyes off the life size stuffed Kangaroo in his living room, the Koala pictures, Wallabies and a pack of Aborigines taking a selfie with Myles somewhere in the Australian Outback. She didn’t find it odd at all that he had a signed poster of Crocodile Dundee by Paul Hogan brandished proudly by the dining table. It wasn’t a coincidence that movie night consisted of Mad Max, The Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome. The bowl of kettle corn resting on her lap, TLA had taken one side of the couch, he forced Terry to sit next to him, Ahren was on the end of the couch which left the love seat that forced Myles and Minerva to sit together…)
(All planned by design.)
(She turned to look at Myles, he was in deep concentration as they were on the second movie now. She gently moved the bow some in his direction as he took some popcorn.)
TLA: Don’t they make such a cute couple?
Terry: Are you serious about this, TLA? We are not trying to set people up, we need to bond as a team and work out.
TLA: Man, that Doctor really messed you up, carnal.
Terry: “I am going to pretend you didn’t say that. I…..
(Terry feels his phone buzzing, quickly getting up and seeing Consuela’s face, the tone “Living La Vida Loca” continues to play as TLA’s eyebrow arches, Ahren turns, lowering his glasses, Minerva and Myles try not to laugh as he clears his throat.)
Terry: I uh, need to take this, I will be right back.
TLA: Ricky Martin, really cabron?
Terry: I hate you.
(Terry walks outside to take his call, the rest continue to sit there watching the movie.)
Minerva: So, these are the type of movies you like?
Myles: There are others, but yeah. I take it you don’t.
Minerva: Not at all, I prefer Wolf Creek and the second one but….
(Just as Mel Gibson is about to speak, she repeats the lines to the exact word even with the Australian accent.)
Minerva: Three days ago I saw a vehicle that can haul that tanker….. you wanna get outta here? You talk to me….
(His eyes widened, TLA and Ahren are both nodding with smiles on their faces. Minerva winked then turned her attention back to the movie. Myles was still shocked she was saying lines from his movie. Smirking, her eyes lock in the movie eating popcorn and sipping beer.)
TLA: So, while Terry is buttering up to his Ava….
Minerva: Don’t mention that name.
TLA: Orale, my bad. Anyway, while he is out there, I think we have all come to the consensus that we are not going to go pinche work out, we can do that shit on our own. So, Minerva, you’re up. How do you feel so far about being part of the team?
Minerva: I’m a loner, you all already know this, I don’t have to say it, but so far, I am being convinced that I can work with you four to have Voltage win. Let us not fool ourselves though, we all want something out of this, right?
TLA: Si mon.
Ahren: I can definitely agree with that, and as the Team Captain, no matter how much we despise each other and want to pick apart one another until we get what we want, maybe this whole tea, building thing needed to happen, but like the Cobra Kai, we must Strike First, Strike Hard and No Mercy.
Myles: Okay, Johnny. Anyways, we all want something out of it, she’s right, we work together no matter how much we hate it, and then go our separate ways.
(Myles turns to Minerva who bats her eyelashes, then throws popcorn at his face playfully. Myles lets it bounce off his face, before turning the other cheek, he still didn’t want to make too much eye contact.)
TLA: You know, those gypsies, can cast love spells on you gringo.
Myles: Shut up, mate.
Ahren: This movie is very violent, I love the mohawks, leather and chains. It is very soiree.
TLA: You’re a kinky loco, jefe.
Minerva: I already have our next adventure planned.
(Myles couldn’t help but turn and look at her icy blue eyes. Smirking, she sits back in the love seat to enjoy the rest of the movie, reaching over and offering him some popcorn just as Terry walks in.)
Terry: So, what did I miss?
[ SCREEN BAR – THE FOLLOWING DAY]
(They all met at on some desolate road in the country. There was nothing around for miles. All four men were dressed in hiking or hunter gear, they had no idea what to expect, all they knew is that Minerva asked them to all meet her here.)
Ahren: It’s a trap, she is going to kill us for all the mean things we have said about her in the past! She is literally going to murder us here and I didn’t say good life to Jennipurr!
TLA: Relax Mero Mero, Minerva isn’t going to kill us, at least TLA and Myles, I don’t know about you two gringos. She knows we are here for her. There is a lot more at stake than just winning for Voltage, we will be looked upon as heroes, and opportunities will open up for all of us.
Ahren: Yes, I know TLA but this is very Texas Chainsaw Massacre, what is your girlfriend planning, Myles?
Myles: Whoa, slow down there, mate, we are not talking about any girlfriends. I have no idea where she is.
Terry: I can’t get any cellphone reception.
TLA: I’m sure Consuela will put away your cojones safely in a jar.
Terry: There is no one out here to hear you scream.
(Just then, Minerva comes up from the brush in black pants, combat boots and a black tank top, hair slicked back in a ponytail, clearing her throat.)
(She was behind the four who quickly turn around facing her. Tilting her head, she cracks a smirk.)
Minerva: I heard your whole conversation, If I wanted to kill you, I would have asked you guys to meet me somewhere even more secluded where they will never find your bodies, so please do not insult me, now follow and keep up.
(Turning and heading down a pathway through the woods, Myles and TLA smirk, Terry shakes his head, still trying to get cell service, Ahren is looking behind himself as they follow Minerva. After walking about fifteen minutes, they finally arrive at an opening, it looks like a shooting range, there are targets spread out about fifty and a hundred yards apart, there are a couple of hillbilly looking dudes with an array of weaponry.)
Ahren: OH my…. Deliverance.
Terry: You got a purdy mouth.
Ahren: The horror! Do not talk like that. Why are we here!? What are we killing, make sure there are no hillbillies behind us, I will NOT be squealing like a pig today!
TLA: Relax cabron, if anyone should be afraid it’s me, these are the putos that patrol the wall, buey.
Terry: We should have gone worked out.
Myles: Minerva… what’s going on?
Minerva: Boys, I am going to show you how I grew up. In my Gypsy compound it was kill or be killed, I was raised to hunt for my dinner. When I learned how to play with dolls, I could shoot a .38 snub nosed, at eleven I was shooting ducks with a 12-gauge shotgun. You want to know me? Well, I can’t really show you who I really am, but I can at least show you what I grew up with. So what better way to bond then through guns, unless you boys are against guns?
TLA: Oh heina, I’m good with guns.
Terry: Me too, should be fun.
Minerva: Myles? Sorry it’s not a boomerang.
Myles: Har har… I’m in.
(The four turn to Ahren who looks behind him, then around, pointing at himself.)
Ahren: Yes .. yes… yes!
Minerva: Good, you look like a 9MM kind of guy Ahren. Terry, you definitely can handle an AR-15. TLA, you seem like a man of finesse, a Glock 17 for you and Myles, a .357 Magnum kind of guy.
Myles: You know your guns.
Minerva: My father is a psycho, he has an armory where I grew up, thinking gorgers are going to try and overrun it one day, that started when I was 4, I just turned 23, it still hasn’t happened. So are we ready?
Terry: Let’s do this.
(All four men have guns handed to them. They walk over to the firing range, Ahren just stares at the gun, Minerva takes it, shows him how to load it, places it in his hands and points at the targets. Terry figures it out, TLA knows his stuff, Myles gets comfortable with his as Minerva stands behind him and helps him hold it, whispering in his ear.)
Minerva: Cock it back, point and pull the trigger.
(Her sweet breath tickles his ear. Shaking his head, he tries to pay no attention, yet she stands next to him after they put their earpieces in, she points her Berretta before screaming….)
Minerva: OKAY BOYS, NOW!
(The targets come down. Suddenly Myles stops, as does Ahren, TLA and Terry. It is life size pictures of Consuela for Terry….)
Terry: Oh, come on!
(For TLA it is Charlie Marr as he smirks, Ahren it is Chris Elite, his eyes widen then laughs. Minerva has Raven Roberts and Myles has an exceptionally large Xander Payne. He turns to Minerva who winks. TLA screams over.)
TLA: I THINK SHE IS ONE OF US, HEY CARNALES!?
(They all nod, Myles takes his time, as do the rest of Team Voltage, and start to shoot at will. I think it is safe to say….)
(They have bonded with Minerva.)
(The camera cuts back to the commentary position)
Rich Russillo: Ladies and Gentlemen, coming up next we have a huge one on one match with Championship implications! Candice Blair takes on the former Universal Women’s Champion Minerva. Joining us on commentary, we have the current Universal Women’s Champion, Serena Bennett. Welcome, Miss Bennett.
Serena Bennett: Thank you.
(Minerva shows up on stage as “Blood, Milk & Sky” by White Zombie plays up. A lone spotlight shows Minerva as she kneels on stage, while he music and he chants get louder and louder. The camera zooms in as Mr. Gunari shows up next to Minerva and places her signature rose in her mouth. Minerva then starts skipping down the ramp)
Rich Russillo: Man oh man, what a match we have in store here tonight. Minerva said it very clearly. She doesn’t care about the title she lost to Serena Bennett. She’s on a mission and she’s going to make Candice Blair pay for her insolence of last week.
(Minerva stops at the end of the ramp. The camera zooms in on her facial expression as she rolls her eyes back. Mr. Gunari nods in approval as she makes the sign of the cross. She then walks towards the ring and hops on the apron)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Bucharest, Romania…. Weighing in at 122 pounds… MINERVAAAAAA!
James Peters: Insolence? I’d say Candice Blair had the guts to stand up to Minerva and faced her like the woman she is. We are going to see tonight who is the better woman and the ring is going to be the judge.
(Minerva steps inside the ring as she stands in the middle for a bit, before walking all the way towards the corner and sitting there, all while Mr. Gunari looks on)
Serena Bennett: Bitch, this ain’t no ballet. If you gots a problem with someone, you solve it in the good old fashioned way, a wrestling match. That’s it.
(“Diva” by Beyoncé plays up as Candice Blair shows up on stage. This time around there’s no smile on her face, only a look of determination and grit as she walks down the ramp. The camera switches back and forth between her and Minerva’s facial expression)
Rich Russillo: Here comes a woman who claims she’s ready to be the next Number one contender to the Universal Women’s Championship. Tonight will surely be a test for her. The real question is… Is she ready?
Serena Bennett: She had the balls to call out Minerva and I’ll give her that. However, she’s far from being a contender in my eyes. Tonight she MIGHT change my mind if she plays her cards right.
(Candice Blair quickly slides inside the ring and goes face to face with Minerva. The referee quickly steps in to separate the two. Once they are both settled down, he tells the timekeeper to get this match started with)
(DING DING DING)
Rich Russillo: And the match is underway… Wait just a minute, it looks like Minerva wants to have a little chat with our friend here at commentary first! Minerva slides out of the ring underneath the bottom rope and takes a few steps towards the commentary table. Serena… hey, what are you two doing now?!
(Serena Bennett gets up form the commentary position and both her and Minerva go face to face for a moment)
Minerva (Off Mic): Take a good look at what I’m going to do to this Barbie Doll here tonight.
Serena Bennett: Listen here, darling, I…
Rich Russillo: CANDICE BLAIR JUST TOOK BOTH OF THEM OUT WITH A MASSIVE SUICIDE DIVE! CANDICE BLAIR DIVED TO THE OUTISIDE AND CRASHED INTO THE BACK OF MINERVA BUT IN THE PROCESS SHE COLLIDED WITH SERENA BENNETT AS WELL! TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE!
James Peters: Talk about sending a message, These three women have one thing in common and that thing is the Universal Women’s Championship. I’m not surprised by Candice Blair and her intention to go all out here tonight, especially in front of one of her biggest doubters, Serena Bennett. Candice Blair has just sent Minerva right back inside the ring and she closes in on the former Universal Women’s Champion as she desperately tries to crawl towards the corner and get some separation between the two. Candice Blair keeps up the pressure e with a couple of stomps as Minerva is stuck in the corner, but that’s when the referee comes in and forces her to step back and give Minerva a breather… BUT THAT’S WHEN MINERVA DRAGS HER BY HER TIGHTS AND SENDS HER HEAD FIRST AGAINST THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE! JUST LIKE THAT, MINERVA HAS TURNED THINGS AROUND AND SHE IS IN CONTROL OF THE BOUT NOW!
Persephone: Uhm guys… I think Serena’s mic got busted in that earlier accident with the Suicide Dive thingy Candice did and… HEY THIS IS MY MICROPHONE, NOT YOURS!
(Serena Bennett takes the headset off Persephone and shoves her off the chair. She then sits right where Persephone was sitting, she puts her hair back in place and then proceeds to commentate as if nothing happened, all while Persephone is looking flabbergasted a few inches away from her)
Serena Bennett: As I was sayin, these two bitches are thirsty for gold. Minerva is tryna front that losin her title to me didn’t hurt her pride, but it did. I can guaran-damn-tee you that. However, the only one with something to prove tonight is that Ava girl right there.
Rich Russillo: It sure seems like Minerva has extra salt in her blood tonight by the way she’s going after Candice Blair with sheer intensity and grit. Candice Blair is now the one trapped in the corner and that’s a please you don’t want to be when you are fighting Minerva. The former Universal Women’s Champion is just stomping a hole in Candice Blair and.. what the hell? She’s now straight up biting Candice Blair’s forehead! Candice is screaming in agony as the referee FINALLY steps in and forces a clean break. Now Minerva gets a firm hold of Candice’s wrist and sends her running towards the ropes with a strong Irish Whip. Candice Blair rebounds off the ropes as Minerva goes for a clothesline, but Candice ducks under and nails her to the mat with a slingblade!
James Peters: It’s not over yet though, Minerva gets right back up as Candice Blair presses on the advantage. Roundhouse kick from Candice… NOPE, Minerva ducks under as Candice misses widely. Now Minerva has an opening and she makes the most out of it with a well placed kick to the midsection. Candice Blair collapses to her knees as Minerva glares at the ropes with evil intentions in her eyes. She runs towards the ropes and rebounds off her with extra momentum as she charges in for a Scissors Kick… BUT CANDICE HAD THAT MOVE SCOUTED! CANDICE BLAIR CATCHES MINERVA’S LEG AND SIMPLY PUSHES HER OFF FORCING HER TO FALL DOWN TO THE MAT, BACK FIRST! AMAZING COUNTER!
Serena Bennett: Yawn… for real. Is that what y’all call amazing? Man, y’all need some better standards. Y’all need Serena Bennett standards. Thankfully for you I am here and I’m here to stay, Serena Bennett aka the FACE of the Women’s Division. Not some blonde hair Barbie and that goth blood sucking vampire lady.
Rich Russillo: Well, that was still impressive by Candice Blair. Anyways, Minerva got right back up Candice knocked her out with a stiff Roundhouse Kick and this time it connected to perfection. Minerva is now down to the mat, stunned and gasping for air but Candice Blair is not done yet, oh no, she’s far from being done. Candice Blair is stalking Minerva, waiting for her to get back up to her feet. She finally does as Candice Blair sees the opportunity to charge in for a SPEAR…. NO, NOBODY’S HOME! Minerva got her knee up at the very last millisecond as Candice Blair’s head collided against it with a sickening thud that echoed thoroughout the arena. Now Candice is stunned as Minerva picks her back up and slams her down with a Scoopslam! Minerva goes for a quick pin attempt as Mr. Gunari looks on….
James Peters: And Candice Blair powers out at two! Powerful Kickout by Candice Blair who is definitely still in this match. Now Minerva is in control though as she makes sure to keep up the tempo. Minerva picks her opponent right back up with the help of a handful of hair. Candice is still out of it and doesn’t look as if she knows what’s about to hit her. Minerva wraps her arm around her neck and then she goes to hook her leg as well, probably thinking Fisherman Suplex her but Candice Blair senses what’s about to happen and she responds with a stiff shot to the midsection of Minerva… and yet another shot that has Minerva releasing the hold, at least temporarily. Candice Blair tries to make the most out of this opening as she charges in for a Bicycle Knee Strike but Minerva side steps it and Candice misses the mark by a lot. Candice Blair turns around as Minerva catches her with yet another kick to the stomach. Minerva runs towards the ropes and rebounds off them, is she thinking Scissors Kick again?
Rich Russillo: Yes! Minerva with yet another Scissors Kick attempt and just like the first Candice Blair avoids damage, but this time she does so by simply pulling back and ducking the hit. Minerva stumbles forward but somehow manages to keep her balance. Candice Blair tries to catch her for a sit out Jawbreaker but Minerva pushes her away at the last second, Candice turns around as… DEVIL’S KISS FROM OUT OF NOWHERE! MINEVA JUST ENDED THIS BACK AND FORTH SEQUENCE OF REVERSAL WITH HER SIGNATURE SUPERKICK! SHE GOT ALL OF IT! MINERVA GOES FOR THE COVER, THIS MIGHT BE IT!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT BY CANDICE BLAIR! This is the amount of resilience she will need if she wants to dethrone the current Champion!
Serena Bennett: Are you kidding me? I mean, I’ll give the Devil his due and say that both of these girls are good. But there’s “good” and then there’s “Serena Bennett”. Candice Blair is good… but she ain’t no Serena Bennett, sis. Not by a long shot she ain’t.
Rich Russillo: Either way, it seems as if Candice’s resilience is starting to make Minerva feel frustrated. I’m not sure she’s still on top of her game but she does seem a bit frustrated here. Either Minerva is still in control and she doesn’t want to let up. She bring Candice all the way near the corner, setting her for what I think it’s going to be a high risk maneuver. Minerva stops for a moment as she glares at Serena Bennett sitting in the commentary position.
Serena Bennett: Whatcha lookin at, bitch?
Rich Russillo: Minerva just blew a virtual kiss towards Serena Bennett! She’s ready for it, I feel like we’re about to witness… Hell’s Bells! The split legged Moonsault from Minerva connects…. NO, CANDICE BLAIR GOT HER KNEES UP AT THE VERY LAST SECOND! KNEES UP AS MINERVA CRASHES AND BURNS, WHILE CANDICE QUICKLY REGAINS HER VERTICAL POSITION AND GOES ON THE ATTACK. MINERVA IS STUNNED, FAVORING HER DAMAGED MIDSECTION WHILE CANDICE BLAIR IS READY TO STRIKE! CANDICE GOES ON THE ATTACK NOW AS SHE FINALLY HAS THE OPENING SHE NEEDS! RUNNING KNEE BY CANDICE BLAIR! RIGHT ON THE NOSE, THE BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE CONNECTS TO PERFECTION AS MINERVA COLLAPSES DOWN TO THE CANVAS! CANDICE BLAIR GOES FOR THE QUICK COVER!
James Peters: MINERVA KICKS OUT WITH EAS….. HEY, CANDICE BLAIR IMMEDIATELY TRANSITIONS MINERVA INTO THE CANDY LOCK! CANDICE BLAIR WAS INCREDIBLY QUICK AND WHILE MINERVA WAS STILL STUNNED OFF THAT STRIKE, SHE SUCCESSFULLY PUT HER INSIDE THE CANDY LOCK! MINERVA IS SCREAMING IN AGONY BUT SHE HAS NOWHERE TO GO, THE CANDY LOCK IS LOCKED IN TIGHT! MINERVA HAS TO FIGHT FOR HER LIFE AND DIG HELLA DEEP TO SURVIVE THIS HOLD!
Rich Russillo: THE ROPES! THE ROPES ARE CLOSE! MINERVA IS TRYING TO DRAG HERSELF TOWARDS THE BOTTOM ROPE AS CANDICE BLAIR IS DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO PREVENT HER FROM REACHING IT. CANDICE BLAIR IS TRYING WHAT SHE CAN TO KEEP HER STEADY BUT MINEVA IS JUST FINGERTIPS AWAY AND…YES SHE DID IT! SHE SUCCESSFULLY REACHED THE BOTTOM ROPE AND FORCED A BREAK!
James Peters: The Ref is quick to intervene as he forces Candice Blair to release the hold. She does not want to get disqualified and lose the match in front of The Champion, that would be terrible. Now Candice Blair is right back up to her feet though and she is stalking Minerva, begging for her to get right back up so she can put her down for good this time around. What an impressive performance from both of these competitors, Candice Blair is going toe to toe against the former Champion and proving to the world that she is a credible contender for the title! Minerva is back up, Candice Blair goes of a kick to the stomach, MINERVA IS DOWN, CANDICE GOES FOR THE CANADIAN DESTROYER…. NO, MINERVA SENDS HER FLYING WITH A MASSIVE BACK BODY DROP THAT SENDS HER ACROSS THE RING. BUT CANDICE BLAIR IS NOT DONE YET, SHE SPRINGS RIGHT BACK TO HER FEET AND CHARGES IN… BUT SHE GETS CAUGHT! STIFF KICK TO THE MIDSECTION BY MINERVA, AS CANDICE BLAIR STUMBLES BACK BUST SOMEHOW MANAGES TO KEEP HER VERTICAL POSITION! MINERVA LIFTS HER UP FOR ATLAS FALL….
Rich Russillo: NO WAY, CANDICE BLAIR JUST REVERSED THE SUPLEX ATTEMPT AND LANDED RIGHT BEHIND MINERVA! INSANE COUNTER BY CANDICE BLAIR WHO NOW PUSHES MINERVA FORWARD AND… OH NO! THE REFEREE WAS TAKEN OUT! THE REFEREE GOT TAKEN OUT! CANDICE BLAIR JUST SHOVED MINERVA INTO THE REFEREE BUT WAS UNINTENTIONAL! WHAT THE HELL!
James Peters: Candice Blair is now checking on the referee and seeing if he’s able to continue… OH NOW BEHIND YOU CANDICE! LOOK OUT! MINERVA WITH THE DARK! RIGHT ON CANDICE BLAIR’S FACE! CANDICE BLAIR IS BLINDED…. MINERVA STARTS LAUGHING! BICYCLE KNEE STRIKEEEEEEEEE! CANDICE BLAIR WENT FOR IT DESPITE BEING BLINDED BY THE DARK MIST AND SHE STILL NAILED MINERVA ON THE HEAD! I GUESS SHE USED THE LAUGH TO TELL WHERE MINERVA WAS POSITIONED! CANDICE BLAIR COLLAPSES DOWN TO THE MAT FOR THE COVER, BUT THERE IS NO REFEREE…..
Serena Bennett: What the fuck is going on? Who put his Barbie Doll on Sicko Mode tonight? That was nuts!
Rich Russillo: THE REFEREE IS NOW GOING FOR THE THREE COUNT, MINERVA IS STILL OUT…
Rich Russillo.: AND A KICKOUT BY MINERVA! Minerva survives another knee strike, some would say thanks to that slow count but I think she simply had better ring awareness and took all the time in the world to Kickout. Now her opponent is blinded, Minerva has this match under control and she knows it. Candice Blair is still trying to get the mist off his eye, the referee is way too confused to even understand what’s going on as he is still semi incapacitated on the mat.
James Peters: Mineva has this match won. She gets back up, as Candice is still stumbling around the ring. She catches her, this time we are going to see Atlas Fall… NOOOOOOOOOOOO
(Serena Bennett throws two bottles of Crip a Cola towards the ring. One crashes into Minerva’s head and the other one hits Candice Blair still on the head)
Rich Russillo: WHAT THE HELL? SERENA BENNETT JUST THREW BOTH BOTTLES AT THE TWO COMPETITORS! SHE KILLED THEM BOTH WITH A SICK DOUBLE HEADSHOT!
James Peters: The referee is back to his feet… He glares at the two bodies laid out on the mat. He then glares at Serena Bennett who winks at him. This time he finally understands just what the hell happened here. He calls for it! This match ends in a no contest!
Rich Russillo: NO CONTEST IT IS THEN!
(DING DING DING)
(Serena Bennett steps inside the ring and looks on as both Minerva and Candice Blair are on the canvas. Mr. Gunari is just as shocked as the rest of the socially distanced crowd)
(She lifts her championship high above her shoulders and smiles towards the camera)
Persephone: What a disgusting display of arrogance. Not only did she steal my headset, but she also ruined a back and forth match between these two bitches.
Rich Russillo: I’m absolutely shocked by the performance of Candice Blair here tonight. Minerva dominated most of the match as we were expecting from a former Universal Women’s Champion but Candice Blair somehow found a way to survive and claw her way back to a some sort of moral victory in the end.
James Peters: Candice Blair is a credible contendere for sure. Minerva confirmed her status as a monster who doesn’t care at all about her opponents health and well being. And Serena Bennett… well, she’s Serena Bennett alright. What’s going to happen next between these three women?
(Both Candice and Minerva sit up, each of them trying to figure out what really just happened. Their eyes clash with Serena’s, and both of them stare down the Universal Women’s Champion.)
(Voltage fades into a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Crip-A-Cola featuring Poon Palace workers and their customers.)
(Voltage returns and cuts to a pre-recorded interview.)
[ SCREEN BAR – EARLIER TODAY ]
(The scene opens up to the Fight Grid set where Sofia Clarke is sitting behind the news desk. She is joined by Ms. Extreme, who is dressed in street clothes, for an exclusive interview. Sofia flashes her professional smile at Ms. Extreme.)
Sofia Clarke: Thank you for joining me, Ms. Extreme.
Ms. Extreme: Let’s just keep this low key. You can call me Camille.
Sofia Clarke: :wow: Alright. It was around this time last year that I sat down with you and your War Games teammates, Raven Roberts and Andrea Valentine. A lot has changed since then. What’s the biggest difference between the woman you are right now as opposed to the woman you were at this point last year?
Ms. Extreme: Well, I’m a little less #QueensOnly this season. Don’t get me wrong, that’s a saying that I eat, breathe and sleep, but I’m without the rest of the Beating Hearts as we all got drafted to different brands. I feel like I can go and pursue any championship that my heart desires, but I’ve been in the hunt to get my first World Championship, it’s something that I’ve been wanting to get since my issues with Charlie Marr. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get the job done at Wicked Games and Road to Redemption. As much as I was happy that Andrea got her moment, there’s that evil thought in my mind that would have been me. I was glad that I got that reign as Interwire Champion; it was something that got me somewhat on track, but I don’t think that it provided me with the satisfaction that I was looking for. As I reflected on Consuela taking the title from me, it seemed like a blessing in disguise as I was able to pursue a World Championship. I wanted to win at Fighting Spirit, but was happy that Raven did. I remained optimistic as we went to Pain for Pride. I really wanted Cash in the Vault to be MY moment, but it didn’t happen.
Sofia Clarke: I know Pain for Pride was a huge disappointment for you. Have you accepted what happened at the event, or are you holding onto the bitter taste of defeat in order to find some more motivation for yourself?
Ms. Extreme: Pain for Pride was one of the first moments that I really found myself invested in something. I guessed, I gave in to the Cash in the Vault salt that comes with this match. I was bitter and angry. There’s a part of me that still is. I felt like I had a very good shot at winning, but I guess, it just wasn’t my time. I don’t know the reasoning for all of this heartbreak because I never saw myself needing to take another route to becoming World Champion. I don’t know where this route I’m taking is going to lead me, but I’m hoping it leads me to my very first World Champion.
(Ms. Extreme is very determined as she says that. A world championship reign is something she desires for herself and it’s a goal that she refuses to let go of. Sofia can’t help but nod.)
Sofia Clarke: I don’t think it surprises anyone to know that you have your heart set on becoming a world champion. That goal aside, what other goals do you have in mind for this season?
Ms. Extreme: I want to be one of the few women to have held all the male dominated mid card championships. I’ve held the PURE Championship and Interwire Championship, but the National Elite Championship would be nice. If I can’t be a World Champion this season, it would be becoming National Elite Champion. But, one of the most important goals that I have within myself is to go back to the Ms. Extreme that people loved. The one who won War Games. The Ms. Extreme who took Charlie Marr to hell at the Barbed Wire Massacre. I feel like I’ve lost her a bit and I want her back. I wanna go back to being the free spirit who doesn’t give a fuck about anything. I’ve gotten so lost with winning and being bitter when I don’t get the desired result and I don’t wanna be that person anymore.
Sofia Clarke: Let’s talk about your future opponent, Kasey Kaos, for a moment. She’s certainly an Elitist that has been making quite a name for herself since her arrival on Dynasty last season. How do you feel about stepping into the ring against her at Territorial Invasion?
Ms. Extreme: Kasey Kaos is like Adam Lucas in a way; she is looking for the best on Voltage and by taking them down, it raises her stock. It could make room for future opportunities for her, but just like with Adam, she is picking on the wrong woman. Who the hell decides to pick a fight with Ms. Extreme? Dumb fucking bitch. No one makes a name for themselves using me. That’s insulting to me and I’m not going to let it slide.
(Ms. Extreme folds her arms across her chest and glares at Sofia, clearly annoyed at even the mention of Kasey’s name. There is no love lost there at all.)
Sofia Clarke: How do you even begin to prepare for such an unpredictable opponent?
Ms. Extreme: You don’t prepare for someone like Kasey Kaos. You just need to be more unpredictable than her. Watching her matches isn’t going to prepare me for what I need to expect at Territorial Invasion, but it provides me with insight on what I’m dealing with. This woman was more than willing to attack me from out of nowhere to get one over on me. She is willing to piss me off because she gets off on getting some sort of reaction from her opponents. People say that I should be scared or Kasey Kaos. Yeah, she creeped me out at Bloodsport, but she shouldn’t mistake that for fear. There is nothing I fear in this world. Not even Kasey, but I’ll give her a reason to fear me. I don’t think that she is expecting for anyone to turn the tables with her, but I can be unpredictable. Perhaps, I can be more unpredictable than she can ever imagine.
Sofia Clarke: Who else on the Voltage roster do you hope to face this season? Voltage is stacked, full of Hall of Famers and former world champions. Surely there are some dream matches you’d like to have or even see.
Ms. Extreme: There is an evil side of me that wants to slaughter Drake King and give him another reason to have PTSD. Also, it would be quite tight to have the EAW Universe see a REVOLT rematch between me and Sienna Jade. Give people the match that made people wanna eye the REVOLT company and it’s women’s wrestling.
Sofia Clarke: I know a lot of fans are hoping for another classic match between yourself and Sienna Jade. I would love that, personally. Fans always want to see a one-on-one between you and Darcy.
Ms. Extreme: Who wouldn’t pay good money to see me slap Super Darcy around? :mjgrin: I don’t do so hot in multi-person matches, but one-on-one is where I thrive. Give me the match and I’ll shine and prove that I’m better than anyone I step foot against.
Sofia Clarke: Last season, you were part of some matches that had absolutely insane stipulations. In fact, to date, you are the only woman to compete in a Barbed Wire Massacre match. What makes you want to keep competing in matches like that?
Ms. Extreme: Apparently, I’m just looking to die. :troll: I’m always about pushing myself to the next level. Barbed Wire Massacre was a match that I felt at home. I felt in my element because I like to play with barbed wire. I love wondering how far I can push myself. Yeah, I constantly worry my mom with these matches, but I always end up fine. There is no other man or woman in this company that can push themselves the way I can. I’m not afraid of messing up my face. I’m not afraid of getting down and dirty if it means to win the match. Due to my history of injuries, people wonder why I co continue to compete in these matches, but I don’t live my life in fear. I make the most with every match that I am a part of and people seem to love that. I don’t get why, but I guess, they feel the fun I have each time I step inside the ring.
Sofia Clarke: I think it goes without saying that you are one of the toughest competitors in this company.
Ms. Extreme: And that’s something I take a lot of pride in. You’re fucking right I’m tough. I’m more than tough. I’m indestructible. That’s why I’m Ms. Extreme.
Sofia Clarke: Before we wrap up, do you have anything else you’d like to say directly to Kasey, or anyone else who might be watching?
(Ms. Extreme looks directly at the camera, almost as if she was looking at a person.)
Ms. Extreme: I don’t think that people are getting the message, but I’m not someone that you can use for clout. I’m not someone’s ‘feel good victory.’ I’m not someone that you can walk over like she’s completely nothing. It seems like Adam Lucas and Kasey Kaos didn’t get the memo. At least with Adam, he learned that I wasn’t someone’s feel good victory, but we had a nice little match. Kasey, it seems like she doesn’t take memos to heart. She is someone who will keep pushing and pushing until she gets what she wants. I gave her a match with me on a silver platter. Her biggest mistake was getting on my bad side. You get on my bad side and you aren’t going to like it. At Territorial Invasion, I plan to take down another rising star of EAW and expose them for being nothing at all. As for anyone on Voltage, who fucking considers to cross paths with me, don’t. Save yourself from that heartbreak and save yourself from spending the rest of your days in the hospital bed. If you aren’t taking what I say seriously right now, just watch Territorial Invasion. If what I plan to do to Kasey Kaos isn’t enough of a reason, then you’re really going to learn things the hard way.
Sofia Clarke: Thank you for your time, Camille.
(Ms. Extreme nods and begins to remove her microphone. As she stands up to leave the scene, the scene fades to black.)
(Voltage cuts to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for the 21 Days of Beauty sale at Ulta!)
(Voltage fades back to the performance center, where Bella Braxton is with a microphone in her hand, in the center of the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… The following Brand Warfare preview is a triple threat match, and it is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Enemy Strike’ by Yuki Hayashi hits, and the socially distanced crowd immediately begins to boo. Myles soon enters the stage as always, and as he makes his way down the stage and down the ramp, he completely ignores the fans booing him as usual. In this match Myles has the chance to once again face possibly his biggest enemy in the company and it’s obvious that he’s not going to let that opportunity slip by, especially after hearing what he’s had to say this week.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… From Melbourne, Australia…. Weighing in at 227 pounds…. MYYYYYYYLLLEEEESSSS!!!!!!!
James Peters: And here he is, Voltage’s representative in this Brand Warfare preview match, Myles! We all saw his fantastic performance against Minerva last week and against Rex McAllister back at Bloodsport, we know how good he normally is, but tonight I expect
him to kick into another gear seeing who he’s facing.
Rich Russillo: And by who he’s facing, you’re specifically referring to Xander Payne, right?
James Peters: Yep. Xander is the final person Myles faced last year before his long absence, and we all know how that match ended. I’m sure Myles wants the opportunity to both redeem himself and get back at Xander, this and Brand Warfare are his best opportunities to do that.
(‘It Follows’ by Cane Hill blasts through the speaker as Xander Payne slowly walks onto the stage, and the performance center crowd begins booing even louder than before. Xander only has his eyes on one person right now, and that’s Myles. As Xander begins walking down the ring, neither he nor Myles break eye contact, and to the two of them it’s like the booing just isn’t there at all. All they care about is destroying each other.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring….. From Toronto, Ontario, Canada…. Weighing in at 255 pounds…. XAAAAANDERRRRR PAAAAAYYYYNEEE!!
James Peters: Well, here’s Dynasty’s representative, the former PURE Champion Xander Payne! Fun fact, Xander’s actually beaten both of his opponents tonight in singles competition within the past year. Territorial Invasion one year ago Xander beat Myles just as we’ve mentioned before, and not too long ago at Pain for Pride Xander beat Jake Smith to win that PURE Championship. Honestly he has every right to believe he can win here.
Rich Russillo: I hate to say it, but you’re right. Xander might be one of the most dangerous Elitists on the Dynasty roster. We’ve seen him defeat the likes of Impact and Mr. DEDEDE this year too. I’m not giving up on Myles though, Myles has shown that he can be just as, if not even more dangerous than Xander.
James Peters: And I don’t disagree.
Persephone: Oh God, not another fat guy. Pretty sure that weight is a couple hundred- or thousand pounds too light. Wow he’s so ugly too, this match is going to be hard to watch.
(As the two men already in the ring try their hardest not to just start fighting immediately, ‘War’ by Grandson hits and the crowd’s booing doesn’t stop. Jake Smith soon walks out to the stage, and unlike the other two he has a pretty confident smirk on his face. Jake begins walking down the ramp just radiating arrogance, and soon both Xander and Myles begin shifting their attention towards Jake, who doesn’t seem to care much about the personal feud those two share.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponent…. Residing in Atlantic City, New Jersey… Weighing in at 210 pounds…. JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKEEEE SSSSMMMMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTHHHHH!!!!!!!!
Persephone: Oh this guy sucks.
James Peters: What? He’s a two time PURE Champion. Jake Smith has never been a popular member of… Just about any locker room he’s been in, but he has talent. A lot of it. Showdown made a good choice when it comes to Jake.
Persephone: Just look at him. He’s so bland, he just looks boring.
Rich Russillo: Well, love him or hate him we do know he must have something to prove here. Jake Smith has never defeated neither Myles nor Xander, and if he wants to bring home a win for Showdown he’s gonna have to actually do that tonight.
Persephone: Wait, he never beat either of these guys? See, he does suck. I don’t know what talent James was talking about.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: Here we go! Myles versus Xander Payne versus Jake Smith, Brand Warfare preview match! I think it’s pretty obvious who Rich and I are rooting for here, after all Myles is the one representing our brand in this match! Persephone… She doesn’t really care about anyone here. Jake, Myles, Xander, all three men are circling the ring and- Jake just rolled out? What’s he doing? He’s just watching on, and I think he’s just gonna let Myles and Xander fight amongst themselves for now! Neither Myles nor Xander really know what Jake’s thinking here, but- WAIT A MINUTE! OVERDOSE BY XANDER!!
Rich Russillo: NO, MYLES DUCKED IT! MYLES JUST DUCKED IT AND NOW HE’S ATTEMPTING TO HIT XANDER WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! XANDER HITS MYLES WITH AN ELBOW THOUGH, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THIS IS GOING EXACTLY HOW JAKE WANTED! RIGHT OFF THE BAT XANDER AND MYLES ARE GOING AFTER EACH OTHER, AND MYLES EVEN ADMIT HE CARED MORE ABOUT XANDER THAN HE DID JAKE! Myles responded to that elbow with a huge elbow strike as soon as Xander turned to him, and he goes for another one but Xander blocks it before kicking him in the midsection!
Persephone: I don’t care for any of these three but I guess Myles kinda has to win since he’s representing my brand. Xander just sent Myles into the ropes- and it looks like he already tried to hit the last sedation but Myles countered it with a hurricanrana sending Xander under the bottom rope. Xander just rolled back to his feet though, and coincidentally he rolled right towards Jake. Jake’s immediately going after Xander now, but in the meantime Myles is running the ropes and I don’t think neither Jake nor Xander have realized this.
James Peters: TOPE CON HILO! MYLES JUST TOOK OUT BOTH XANDER PAYNE AND JAKE SMITH WITH THAT TOPE CON- WAIT! NO HE DIDN’T! JAKE MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST MOMENT AND MYLES ONLY TOOK OUT XANDER! JAKE IS GRABBING MYLES AS SOON AS HE GETS BACK UP, AND NOW HE SENDS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST! Jake sends Xander into the ring now, and it looks like he’s already going for the first cover of the match without even doing much!
James Peters: XANDER SHOVES JAKE OFF OF HIM! Xander’s already starting to get back up, BUT NOW JAKE RUNS THE ROPES! RUNNING KNEE LIFT-
Rich Russillo: XANDER MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! XANDER QUICKLY PUSHES HIMSELF BACK TO HIS FEET, AND NOW HE NEARLY TAKES JAKE’S HEAD OFF WITH A LARIAT! Xander doesn’t look too happy with Jake right now, AND NOW HE’S DEADLIFTING JAKE UP INTO A SUPLEX POSITION, BUT JAKE HITS A KNEE TO XANDER’S HEAD TO GET OUT OF IT! Jake now with an irish whip to the ropes- AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT HE WAS GOING FOR BUT XANDER STOPS IT WITH A SHOULDER TACKLE, SENDING JAKE INTO THE CORNER!
James Peters: JAKE QUICKLY PULLS HIMSELF UP, BUT XANDER’S NOW CHARGING IN- AND JAKE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! JAKE NOW PULLING XANDER DOWN, AND HE TRIES TO ROLL HIM UP BUT XANDER IMMEDIATELY MANAGES TO KICK OUT! As Xander gets out he tries to hit Jake with a boot to the face, but Jake manages to move out of the way! Jake quickly grabbing Xander and running up top- AND HE GOES FOR A TORNADO DDT BUT XANDER MANAGES TO LIFT HIM UP AND TOSS JAKE OVER THE TOP ROPE! The size advantage obviously went to Xander there, and I have to admit he may be the biggest threat in this match with how he’s been the past few weeks-
Rich Russillo: MYLES WITH A DIVING METEORA!! Myles managed to take Xander down with that meteora, but not for long! Xander’s already getting back up, and that’s exactly what Myles wants it looks like! Xander gets back to his feet- AND IMMEDIATELY ATTEMPTS TO HIT MYLES WITH A LARIAT- JUST FOR MYLES TO DUCK UNDER IT BEFORE SENDING XANDER OVER THE TOP WITH A CLOTHESLINE OF HIS OWN! Myles going back out to the apron now, and Xander is back to his feet, JUST TO BE HIT WITH A RUNNING KNEE BY MYLES ON THE APRON!
Persephone: Huh, I guess Myles is just the least trash one in the match. Budget pre-Prophetic Visions Drake is running towards Myles, and now Myles hits him with a meteor- O. Nevermind, Jake just hit him with a steel chair, knocking Ginger Jamie off the apron. That probably hurt. Jake is raising that chair again, and now he’s just beating down Myles with it. I’mma be honest, Jake’s been the smartest person in this match so far. He knows he’s a terrible wrestler and nobody wants to see him, so he’s been choosing his spots for a good portion of this match.
James Peters:… I doubt that’s why he’s doing it, but I get what you’re saying. Jake now is wrapping that chair around Myles neck, and I don’t think I like where this is going! Jake now, SENDING MYLES INTO THE PLEXI- NO! MYLES MANAGED TO STOP THAT CHAIR HITTING PLEXIGLASS AND BEING SENT INTO HIS THROAT! JAKE GOING TO GRAB MYLES BUT MYLES HITS HIM WITH A BACK ELBOW BEFORE TAKING THE CHAIR OFF HIS HEAD, AND HITTING JAKE IN THE BACK WITH IT!
Rich Russillo: Myles grabbing Jake now and.. OH GOD! MYLES WITH A BACK SUPLEX TOSS ONTO OUR TABLE, AND THE TABLE DIDN’T BREAK
BUT THAT STILL HAD TO HURT JAKE! Jake rolling off of the table now and Myles immediately grabs him, AND RAMS HIM INTO THE RING APRON! Myles isn’t finished with Jake just yet though, NOW IT’S MYLES SENDING JAKE INTO THE- WAIT NO! JAKE TURNS IT AROUND AND SENDS MYLES INTO THE PLEXIGLASS! Jake and Myles are just using everything around them at the moment, but they need to be careful! Xander is looking under the ring for something, and this is Xander we’re talking about. He can’t be up to any good right now.
Persephone: It’s Xander Payne, he’s probably looking for a fork and knife. Anyways both Myles and Jake are using the barricade to stay on their feet, and Myles just went for his bicycle knee but Jake moved out of the way. Jake grabbing Myles from behind, and he went for a german suplex but Myles landed on his feet. Jake turning towards Myles, and Jake was just hit with a superkick. Myles grabbing Jake, and it looks like he’s going for a suplex or a brainbuster- oh what the hell?
James Peters: XANDER JUST HIT MYLES IN THE BACK WITH A KENDO STICK! MYLES JUST DROPPED JAKE AND IN THE PROCESS FELL DOWN TO A KNEE, AND NOW XANDER HITS HIM AGAIN WITH THE KENDO STICK! AND HE HITS HIM AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN! XANDER’S JUST HITTING HIM OVER AND OVER WITH THE KENDO STICK! Jake in the meantime is rolling himself back into the ring, and now Xander’s grabbing Myles and leaning him against the ring post- BEFORE PUSHING THE KENDO STICK INTO HIS THROAT TO CHOKE HIM WITH IT! XANDER’S TRYING TO TAKE ONE OF HIS BIGGEST ENEMIES TO DATE OUT OF THE EQUATION HERE!
Rich Russillo: MYLES KICKS XANDER IN THE MIDSECTION TO GET THE KENDO STICK OFF OF HIM, BUT HE DOESN’T GET MUCH TIME TO RECOVER AS XANDER IMMEDIATELY HITS THE OVERDOSE RIGHT AFTER! THAT DISCUS PALM STRIKE CONNECTS AND MYLES IS OUT! Xander rolling Myles back into the ring before entering himself- COLD NIGHT HOME! COLD NIGHT HOME BY JAKE SMITH ONTO XANDER PAYNE!!! JAKE’S IMMEDIATELY GOING FOR THE COVER, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S ABOUT TO STEAL THE MATCH JUST LIKE THAT, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?
James Peters: XANDER KICKS OUT, BUT NOW JAKE IS PINNING MYLES AFTER WHAT XANDER DID TO HIM!
James Peters: MYLES KICKS OUT AS WELL! Jake doesn’t look too happy right now, he spent that entire time waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike and win the match, but that wasn’t enough to get the job done! Jake’s rolling back out of the ring and grabbing both the kendo stick and the steel chair from earlier before sliding them into the ring, but he isn’t stopping there! Jake is grabbing the top of the steel steps, and he’s bringing that into the ring too! What’s he even gonna do with that!?
Rich Russillo: Well, I guess we’re about to find out! JAKE IS GRABBING XANDER BEFORE PULLING HIM TOWARDS THE STEPS, AND NOW IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S SETTING UP FOR THE ABYSMAL ENDING! IF JAKE CONNECTS WITH THAT ELEVATED DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT ONTO THE STEEL STEPS, THIS MATCH IS GOING TO END! THERE’S NO WAY XANDER WOULD SURVIVE SOMETHING LIKE THAT! JAKE TRYING TO LIFT XANDER UP- BUT XANDER MANAGES TO KEEP HIMSELF DOWN AND TOSS JAKE OVER HIM WITH A BACK BODY DROP!
Persephone: The morbidly obese guy is effortlessly pulling Jake back up and he has him in a gutwrench position, what’s he trying to do here? OH! WAIT, I KNOW! XANDER’S ABOUT TO FINISH THIS MATCH THANK GOD! XANDER LIFTING JAKE UP, AND HE GOES FOR THE RIPTIDE ONTO THE STE- WAIT NO! OH COME ON, JAKE’S TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT! XANDER IS HOLDING JAKE UP STILL AS JAKE’S DOING HIS BEST TO FIGHT OUT OF HIS GRASP! Really Jake!? This isn’t Territorial Invasion yet, do you really need to win a match like this?
James Peters: It’s not Territorial Invasion, but this is still a preview of what could happen there! It looks like Jake’s managed to fight out of Xander’s powerbomb and land safely on the steps, AND NOW HE GOES FOR THE SEE YOU NEVER OFF OF THE STEEL STEPS- BUT XANDER HOLDS HIM IN PLACE BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE ALABAMA SLAM ONTO THE STEPS! JAKE HAS TO BE OUT OF IT, THERE’S NO WAY HE CAN CONTINUE AFTER SOMETHING LIKE THAT! Jake slowly rolling off of the steel steps, and now Xander just places his foot on top of Jake, that’s it, Xander’s won!
Rich Russillo: MYLES WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX TO XANDER! Myles just saved the match for himself right there! Xander’s trying to use the ropes to pull himself up, BUT NOW MYLES RUNS THE ROPES- AND TAKES XANDER DOWN WITH A BICYCLE KNEE! XANDER’S BARELY HANGING ONTO THE ROPES STILL, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT MYLES WANTED AS HE’S WASTING NO TIME RUNNING THE ROPES ONCE AGAIN, AND DELIVERING A SECOND BICYCLE KNEE! XANDER’S FALLEN INTO A SEATED POSITION IN THE CORNER, AND NOW MYLES BACKS UP BEFORE CHARGING BACK IN, AND HE HITS XANDER WITH A RUNNING METEORA!
James Peters: What? That was amazing! Myles now is pulling Xander away from the turnbuckles, and now he’s going for a cover of his own! That might’ve actually gotten the job done!
James Peters: WHAT!? IT DIDN’T? HOW!?!? Xander is still in this match, he just kicked out of all of that, but Myles doesn’t look impressed at all! In fact, he looks pretty content with him kicking out, and we all know exactly why he looks this way. Now it’s Myles taking that steel chair and wrapping it around Xander’s neck before seating him in the corner, and this can’t be good! If he does what I think he will he could really injure Xander here!
Rich Russillo: MYLES IS CHARGING IN- BUT JAKE JUST GRABBED MYLES AND PULLED HIM INTO A SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP! HOW IS JAKE EVEN IN THIS MATCH RIGHT NOW!?
Rich Russillo: MYLES IS OUT! MYLES KICKED OUT OF THE SCHOOL BOY, AND IMMEDIATELY HE GRABS JAKE BY THE ARMS! KAMIGOYE- NO! JAKE GETS OUT OF THE WAY! Jake quickly getting back to his feet, AND HE HITS MYLES WITH A HUGE SUPERKICK, JUST TO FOLLOW IT UP WITH A SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE!
Persephone: About time, he’s actually kinda fighting face to face. OH WHAT THE HELL, THE FAT GUY JUST THREW THE CHAIR AT JAKE AND JAKE CAUGHT IT, AND XANDER JUST HIT A BIG BOOT TO THE CHAIR SLAMMING IT INTO JAKE’S FACE! PIN HIM NOW! PIN HIM, HURRY UP AND PIN HIM SO THIS MATCH COULD FINISH- Why isn’t he pinning him? Jake just fell into the corner and instead of going for the cover Xander is backing into the opposite corner, and now he’s just running towards Jake! Poor Jake, he’s about to be crushed to death.
James Peters: CANNONBALL- WAIT, NO! JAKE MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! JAKE AVOIDED THE CANNONBALL! XANDER IS TRYING TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT JAKE CHARGES TOWARDS HIM AND DELIVERS A HUGE BOOT TO THE FACE! That boot sent Xander out to the apron, and now Jake’s following behind! I think I know what Jake’s going for! JAKE IS SETTING UP FOR THE PLUS ULTRA ON XANDER PAYNE! JAKE IS SETTING UP FOR THE SNAP SWINGING NECKBREAKER OFF THE APRON- BUT WAIT! XANDER JUST TOSSED JAKE OFF THE APRON AND INTO OUR TABLE! JAKE JUST HIT THE EDGE OF THE TABLE, HE HAS TO BE HURT, HOW IS HE SUPPOSED TO CONTINUE!?
Rich Russillo: I don’t think Xander cares whether or not Jake is okay! Xander’s rolling Jake back into the ring- AND MYLES IS BACK UP, AND HE JUST HIT XANDER WITH A HUGE BICYCLE KNEE!!! THAT HAD TO CATCH XANDER OFF GUARD, HE’S ON SPAGHETTI LEGS- AND HE JUST HIT JAKE WITH THE HAPPY PILL JUST AS JAKE NEARLY GOT BACK UP!!! MYLES GRABBING JAKE NOW, AND HE’S GOING FOR A SU- WAIT NO!! TOP PEAK FALL!!!! JAKE JUST CONNECTED WITH THE TOP PEAK FALL AND NOW ALL THREE MEN COLLAPSE ON THE CENTER OF THE RING, BUT WHAT’S GOING ON HERE!?
James Peters: ARE ALL THREE MEN COVERING EACH OTHER!? JAKE’S ARM IS COVERING XANDER, XANDER’S LEGS ARE ON TOP OF MYLES, AND MYLES IS ON TOP OF JAKE! ALL THREE OF THESE ARE PINFALLS, AREN’T THEY!?
Rich Russillo: YES, BUT THE REFEREE CAN’T COUNT THIS, CAN HE!? WHAT’S HE DOING!?
Persephone: DOESN’T MATTER, AS LONG AS THE MATCH ENDS!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: Um… Who won!?
Rich Russillo: I’m confused, what just happened!?
Persephone: Does it really matter? The referee called for the bell, that’s it! The match is over!
James Peters: But all three men just pinned each other in a Brand Warfare preview match, we can’t go without a clear winner! This is such an odd decision here, I’m very confused.
Rich Russillo: The referee is talking with Bella Braxton and the others in the timekeepers area, and I don’t think they know what to do! Why would the referee call for the bell without a real winner!?
Persephone: Because he sucks at his job just like everyone else here, except for Rexy obviously.
James Peters: So… Is that it? Are we just ending it there!?
(As all three men in the ring slowly come to their senses and realize what just happened, ‘Self Help Tape’ by Moses Sumney hits, and soon after Captain Charisma walks out to the stage with a microphone in his hand. He looks down at the ring for a few moments and thinks to himself, before beginning to speak.)
Captain Charisma: You know what, we’re not ending this match like this! We’re going to have a clear winner, so please, restart the match! Ring the bell!
(As Captain Charisma makes his way to the back, the socially distanced crowd begins to cheer as the three men in the ring slowly get back to their feet, all looking at each other carefully after hearing what Captain Charisma just said.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: Wait, what!? So the match is being restarted!? Well, here we go! All three men are back on their feet, and they’re just looking straight at each other! JAKE GOES FOR A SUPERKICK ON XANDER, BUT XANDER CAUGHT HIS LEG! XANDER TURNING JAKE TOWARDS MYLES AND MYLES ATTEMPTS A BICYCLE KICK, BUT JAKE AVOIDED IT! XANDER NOW ATTEMPTING TO HIT MYLES WITH THAT OVERDOSE PALM STRIKE ONCE AGAIN, BUT MYLES DUCKED IT- DOUBLE SUPERKICK BY JAKE AND MYLES! XANDER’S ROLLED OUT OF THE RING!
Rich Russillo: LEG SWEEP BY JAKE ONTO MYLES! MYLES IS DOWN AND NOW JAKE RUNS THE ROPES!! SO LONG AND GOODNIG- NO! MYLES MANAGED TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY, AND NOW HE HITS JAKE WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! MYLES PULLING JAKE UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION, AND NOW BE POWERBOMBS HIM ONTO THE STEEL STEPS THAT ARE STILL IN THE RING, AND NOW HE’S APPROACHING THE ROPES! MYLES IS GONNA THROW JAKE OUT OF THE RING- WAIT NO! JAKE IS HOLDING ONTO THE TOP ROPE, AND NOW HE’S PULLING MYLES OUT WITH A HURRICANRANA!
Persephone: Ugh…. Why is this still going..?
James Peters: Myles manages to grab onto the apron! Myles and Jake are both on the apron, AND MYLES JUST PUSHED JAKE INTO THE POST! JAKE MANAGES TO HOLD ON THOUGH, AND HE CHARGES IN AND HITS MYLES WITH A BICYCLE KICK! Both men are trying their hardest to hang on right now! ELBOW STRIKE BY MYLES! AND A SECOND-
Rich Russillo: NO!! JAKE MANAGED TO CATCH THE SECOND ELBOW, AND HE HITS MYLES WITH A FOREARM! JAKE GOING FOR ANOTHER, BUT NOW MYLES CATCHES THAT, AND HE HITS JAKE WITH A HUGE CHOP! JAKE MANAGES TO SUCK UP THE PAIN THOUGH, ALL TO DELIVER A HUGE CHOP OF HIS OWN! BOTH MEN ARE SLOWLY LOSING THEIR BALANCE ON THE RING APRON, THEY’RE GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER TO FALLING OFF WITH EVERY HIT THEY TAKE! They need to be careful though, they still need to worry about Xander Payne!
Persephone: Why would they be worried about Xander? They just hit him with a double superkick, you saw them take him out didn’t you? If anything, Xander’s probably taking a nap right now since he’s too fat and lazy to even try to get back to his feet. The rest of this match is just gonna be between Myles and Jake, and speaking of those two Jake just managed to knock Myles off of the apron by kicking out the arm he was using to hold onto the top rope- wait what!? How is he back?
James Peters: XANDER JUST GRABBED MYLES, AND NOW MYLES IS SENT TOWARDS US WITH AN OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! WAIT, XANDER PULLS JAKE OFF THE APRON NOW, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S TRYING TO POWERBOMB JAKE ONTO OUR TABLE, BUT JAKE MANAGES TO FIGHT OUT OF IT AND LAND SAFELY ON THE ANNOUNCE TABLE BEFORE KICKING XANDER AWAY! Xander’s not backing down though, he’s climbing onto our table, he really wants to finish this match!
Rich Russillo: BUT JAKE KICKS XANDER’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HIM! What’s Jake thinking here!? Jake has Xander in a front facelock, don’t tell me he’s gonna try and pick Xander up! WAIT, NO WAY!! JAKE’S USING ALL THE STRENGTH HE POSSIBLY HAS IN HIM, AND HE’S PULLING XANDER UP! I THINK HE’S TRYING TO SET UP FOR ANOTHER TOP PEAK FALL, AND THIS MIGHT BE IT FOR XANDER PAYNE- OH MY GOD!!
James Peters: MYLES JUST TACKLED JAKE THROUGH THE TABLE WITH A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN, ALL WHILE JAKE HAD XANDER UP IN THE AIR! ALL THREE MEN JUST FELL THROUGH OUR TABLE, HOW ARE THEY SUPPOSED TO CONTINUE!?!? AT THIS POINT, THEY MIGHT’VE BEEN BETTER OFF STICKING WITH THE TRIPLE PIN, BECAUSE AT THIS RATE THEY’RE JUST GOING TO KILL EACH OTHER!
Rich Russillo: I think the referee is being forced to start a count! Usually in multiman matches count outs are not possible, but in an event like this where all three men seem unable to continue this is what’s needed to make sure we actually get a clear finish!
Referee: (off-mic) ONE!… TWO!….
Persephone: So, the match has to end here right?
Referee: (off-mic) THREE!…
James Peters: At this point, I think it will.
Referee: (off-mic) FOUR!…
James Peters: WAIT A MINUTE! MYLES IS CLIMBING OUT OF THE PILE OF BODIES! MYLES IS STILL ALIVE, AND HE’S CRAWLING TOWARDS THE RING! MYLES IS ABOUT TO WIN THE MATCH FOR VOLTAGE!
Rich Russillo: YES, COME ON MYLES, YOU GOT THIS!
Referee: (off-mic) FIVE!…. SIX!…. SEVEN!…
Rich Russillo: MYLES GETS A HAND ON THE APRON, HE JUST NEEDS TO PULL HIMSELF BACK INTO THE RING!
Referee: (off-mic) EIGHT!….
James Peters: WAIT WAIT WAIT, NO! LOOK OUT MYLES!!!
Referee: (off-mic) NINE!!…..
Rich Russillo: XANDER PAYNE JUST RAMMED MYLES INTO THE RING APRON! MYLES WAS JUST CRUSHED IN BETWEEN THE RING APRON AND XANDER, AND NOW XANDER JUST SENT MYLES INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!! XANDER QUICKLY ROLLING INTO THE RING, NO!! DON’T TELL ME HE JUST STOLE THIS MATCH FROM MYLES!
Referee: (off-mic) TEN!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…. XAAANDDDEERRRRRR PAAAAYYYYYYYNNNNNEEEE!!!!!!
James Peters: NO!!! XANDER PAYNE WINS! Myles was so close, but in the end Xander didn’t collapse through the table the same way Jake did, so he was able to come in at the last second and stop Myles from winning, before taking that win for himself! I have to admit Xander was smart and probably lucky, but that’s still a disappointing loss nonetheless.
Rich Russillo: Well, a lot went down here. Don’t forget the match was restarted and the three men had to deal with a countout in a match that usually has no count outs. I wouldn’t say Myles let anyone down. Instead, Xander found an opportunity and took it. I’m sure Territorial Invasion will end differently.
Persephone: Meh. Myles is a loser and so is Jake Smith. Xander’s not much better but somehow he won tonight. Whatever, onto the next match.
James Peters: Congratulations Xander Payne, but don’t get too comfortable. Voltage will take home the win at Territorial Invasion. If anything, a loss like this is probably just going to fuel Myles more.
Rich Russillo: Hell, Myles was probably going to roll right back out of the ring once he made it in. Count out wins isn’t exactly something I’d expect from him. Can’t wait to see what he has to say about this one.
(‘It Follows’ hits, and the socially distanced crowd begins booing once again as Xander slowly gets back to his feet once again. The referee raises Xander’s hand, but soon after Xander pulls his arm away before raising them on his own.)
(The camera takes a final shot of a gloating Xander Payne, while Jake Smith and Myles look thoroughly frustrated on the outside of the ring, and fades to the backstage area.)
(The scene reopens into the lockerroom of Darcy May Morgan. Miss Cash in the Vault and the captain for Team Voltage, Malcolm Jones, are both seen hanging up pictures of Sarah Price all over the lockerroom. Darcy slaps a final photo smack dab in the middle of the only free spot left and then she goes to grab a cardboard cutout of the Specialists Champion. She drags it to the center of the room and then turns to Malcolm Jones.)
Darcy May Morgan: There. Drake should be arriving at any moment. I’ll be damned if he ever leaves us high and dry again. I don’t care how mentally unstable he is. I don’t care how badly Prophetic Visions has screwed up his life. He will not cost us this match and another arse kicking by freezing at the sight of Sarah Price
Malcolm Jones: Fucking bozo. Clearly he’s got a lot of issues he needs to address and I don’t get paid to be a therapist.
Darcy May Morgan: Well my mum is a therapist and she says that problems need to be addressed head on and you have to allow yourself time to heal. We don’t have time, but we are going to make him face this problem. A hypocritical, wannabe Disney Princess who actually comes off as ugly as one of Cinderella’s stepsisters, is not the type of person to be scared of.
Malcolm Jones: I guess she just represents one of the seven deadly sins for Drake.
Darcy May Morgan: Lust.
Darcy May Morgan: I have no idea what Sierra Bradford sees in Drake.
Malcolm Jones: Money? It’s not like the bitch is marketable.
Darcy May Morgan: Fair enough.
(There is a knock on the door which prompts Darcy and Malcolm to exchange looks with one another.)
Malcolm Jones: Well?
Darcy May Morgan:
Malcolm Jones: Go answer the door, damn. It’s your lockerroom.
(Darcy rolls her eyes but she does go to the door.)
Darcy May Morgan: Is that you Drake?
Drake King: (off-mic) Of course!
(Darcy glances back at Malcolm, who just shrugs.)
Darcy May Morgan: Alright. I’m going to open the door, but first, I want you to close your eyes.
Drake King: (off-mic): Are we playing a game?
Malcolm Jones: da fuq?
Darcy May Morgan: Just close your eyes.
(Darcy rolls her eyes but cracks the door, and sure enough, ‘The Last Messiah’ is standing on the opposite side of the door with his eyes closed. Darcy opens the door fully and takes Drake by the arm, leading him into the room. She positions him directly in front of the cardboard cutout of Sarah Price and takes a deep breath.)
Darcy May Morgan: Now before you open your eyes, I have to warn you, you might not like what you have to see.
Drake King: ….are you not decent?
Darcy May Morgan:
Malcolm Jones: Bruh, just open your fucking eyes.
(Drake opens his eyes and almost immediately he freezes. Malcolm steps in front of the door, so Drake can’t bolt from the room, but the former World Heavyweight Champion almost seems like he is in a trance.)
[ FLASHBACK – PROPHETIC VISIONS ]
(Sarah pulls Drake in, locking lips with him again. Drake mounts on top of her missionary style.)
♪BAABYYYY I COMPARE YOU TO A KISS FROM A ROSE ON THE GREY
OOOH THE MORE I GET OF YOU, THE STRANGER IT FEELS YEAAA♪
Drake: I don’t want to do this. I am not consenting. This isn’t me.
[ PRESENT DAY ]
(Darcy and Malcolm watch as Drake stares hard at the cardboard cutout of Sarah. There is fear in his eyes, and neither of them are sure what to do. They notice Drake’s hands are shaking and that’s when Darcy looks at Malcolm.)
Darcy May Morgan: (mouthing) Uhhhh….
Malcolm Jones: (mouthing) What the fuck….
Drake King: (whispering) no…
[ FLASHBACK – PROPHETIC VISIONS ]
Sarah: Yes it is Drake. You know in your heart that it’s you. Don’t wait anymore. Stop making me wait, I can’t stand it anymore.
(Sarah guides Drake’s hands to her corset, and Drake involuntarily loosens up the strings holding it together.)
(Drake opens up Sarah’s corset.)
♪There is so much a man can tell you, so much he can say
Youuuuu remain, my POWER, my PLEASURE, my–♪
[ PRESENT DAY ]
Drake King: (whispering, but his voice is getting louder) no… no… no… no… no… make it stop… make it stop…
(Drake’s hands claw at his hair, ripping at it, and shocking both Malcolm and Darcy. He is breathing heavily, and the trance-like state he was in before has shattering. His face is red, and his eyes are wild. He drops to his knees.)
[ FLASHBACK – PROPHETIC VISIONS ]
( Instead of a feminine body, the corset unveils a set of bronze, chiseled, manly abs. )
( ♪Record scratch♪. Drake looks up, and sees himself mounted on top of The Visual Prophet, in between his legs, with Viz dressed in the same lingerie and “devil” horns on top of his head. )
The Visual Prophet: Aren’t you gonna buy me dinner first?
[ PRESENT DAY ]
Drake King: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
(Drake’s screams rips through the room, causing Darcy to jump. Even Malcolm is startled. Drake jumps to his feet and rips through the cardboard cutout of Sarah Price.)
Drake King: GET HIM OUT OF HERE! HE SHOULD NOT BE IN HERE! I FRICKING HATE HIM! FRICK HIM! DIE! DIE! DIE! DIE!
Darcy May Morgan: DRAKE! THAT IS NOT VI-
(Drake stops pummeling the cutout of Sarah and gives Darcy a wild look.)
Drake King: DON’T SAY HIS NAME! DON’T DO IT! I SWEAR ON MYSELF AS THE LAST MESSIAH DO. NOT. SAY. HIS. NAME. EVER.
(Darcy is beside herself. It’s clear that in Drake’s mind, Sarah Price and The Visual Prophet are the same person. Drake has torn the head off the cardboard cutout and he has sat back on his haunches. His breathing is still heavy, and slightly labored, and the murderous rage on his face is pretty clear.)
Malcolm Jones: Alright, little buddy. We won’t say his name. But it’s quite clear you have a lot of anger towards him. After all, you just destroyed a cardboard cutout of him…
(Darcy furrows her brows, but after a moment, it dawns on her what Malcolm is doing. If Drake wants to think Sarah Price and The Visual Prophet are the same person, they’re going to let him.)
Darcy May Morgan: You were shocked to see him in the ring on Dynasty, weren’t you?
(Drake doesn’t answer them. Instead he slowly gets up and walks around the room, ripping all the Sarah photos off the wall. The anger that is radiating off him is exactly what Malcolm and Darcy want him to channel.)
Malcolm Jones: You reacted like a grade A pussy on Dynasty, my guy.
Darcy May Morgan: Malcolm
Malcolm Jones: Am I wrong? That PTSD having motha fucka left us high and dry, while VIZ saved DEDEDE and Imp’s asses, despite them not even wanting anything to do with him. That’s some bullshit. Don’t even front like you weren’t pissed the fuck off our so-called teammate decided to tuck his tail between his legs and hide up under the ring. That shit ain’t gunna fly come War Games.
Darcy May Morgan: Well what happened to Drake was traumatic, Malcolm. While it wasn’t very nice of him to leave us high and dry, clearly you know who is in his head and he isn’t ready to face him just yet.
Malcolm Jones: Shiiiiit. So I guess just the two of us are heading into War Games then. Them odds stacked against us, but it is what it is. Clearly this fucking bozo isn’t ready to destroy the man who ruined his life and made him a pussy of a God who clearly doesn’t believe in striking down all those who oppose him…
(Drake turns around, standing in the mess of the torn up photos and decapitated cardboard cutout. The anger that was on his face has been replaced by a look of eerie calmness.)
Drake King: He’s here. I can feel him. The devil that walks the halls, disguised in his many forms, is here tonight. He put these pictures up just to mess with me. He is testing me. I was warned that I would be tested. I was told that the forces of evil would be out to get me. I will admit that on Dynasty I was not prepared to see him standing there in front of me in the flesh. I did not react how I should have and I apologize to the two of you for that. I am ashamed I failed my first true test as the Reborn entity that I am. But tonight and every night going forward, I will not fail. If HE wants to appear before me as HER, then I have no problem taking her and ripping her limb from limb. I will destroy him, and together, we will destroy all.
Malcolm Jones: Are you sure you’re up for this, little buddy?
(Drake retrieves the cardboard head of Sarah Price and grabs the scissors Darcy had been using to cut out all the Sarah pictures. He places it on the wall and stabs the scissors right between Sarah’s eyes, leaving it mounted on the wall.)
Drake King: He won’t win this time. Lets go to the ring.
(Drake leaves the lockerroom, and Malcolm and Darcy turn to each other. They don’t even bother hiding their smiles. They are truly pleased with what they have just managed to do. They took a broken man and manipulated him, and it’s clear both of them are ready to use Drake to their advantage.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for scissors. If you feel the need to be a weirdo and cut out pictures of people to tape the walls, then Office Depot has a lot of scissors for you to pick from.)
(Voltage fades back in from break and “Scenario” by Pop Smoke has started to play.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome Malcolm Jones, Drake King, and Darcy May Morgan… your 2020 Voltage War Games Team!!!
(The trio has appeared on the stage, and begin to make their way to the ring.)
James Peters: Welcome back to Voltage! Prior to the break, we saw Malcolm Jones and Darcy May Morgan confront their War Games teammate over his cowardice the other night on Dynasty.
Rich Russillo: Was it cowardice, though? Clearly, Drake King is not ready to deal with what happened to him at Pain for Pride.
Persephone: Okay but he’s a professional wrestler, not a fucking pussy, and that’s exactly how he came across on Dynasty. I mean, you would never ever see a man like Rex McAllister hide under the fucking ring out of fear for a stupid, ignorant 12-year old girl :mjlol: Give me a break.
James Peters: It was quite the sight on Dynasty, and no doubt the Dynasty War Games team think they have the advantage heading into the match.
Rich Russillo: I’m not so sure that’s the case, James. After what we saw backstage a few moments ago, I have no fucking clue what’s going to happen now.
Persephone: :noah: It looks like they’re all going to talk so I guess we’ll find out :noah:
(The trio are in the ring and they have all been given microphones. Malcolm’s theme music dies down, and Team Voltage all look at one another. Malcolm has a smirk across his face, like always, and Darcy looks fully confident. She’s dressed for her match, which will be next, and after what happened earlier, she certainly feels much better about everything going on. Drake has positioned himself in the corner, leaning against the ropes, and it’s clear to everyone watching that he is agitated, looking around, and assuming that ‘Viz’ is somewhere lurking in the building.)
Malcolm Jones: iiight, so, Dynasty was a shitshow. What else can I really say? A fucking bozo with PTSD let his situation get the better of him, and left Darcy and me hangin’. So that situation has been addressed and rectified, and like I promised on Dynasty, all three of us are now on the same page. We are walking into Territorial Invasion to win, and I’ll be damned if any of us settle for anything less than that. I know everyone else is gunna see us as having a weak link now, but trust me, that ain’t ever gunna be the case. It’s amazing the little things that can happen to truly bring a team together, and now that Darcy and I are aware of Drake’s ‘situation’, we can all move forward in the direction that best suits the three of us as a team. I know people been hyping this shit up and whatnot, but personally, I think all that is a waste of time. It’s a foregone conclusion that whenever I step into the ring, all eyes are gunna be on me and what Imma do, and Im finna hurt a lot of feelings come Territorial Invasion. For whatever reason people seem to take the shit I say to heart :mjgrin:. Well guess what, it’s open fuckin’ season, and I’m willingly puttin’ that target on my own back. Who the fuck is gunna stop me? It damn sure won’t be Grandpa Imp, a neutered podcast host who hasn’t been in the ring since gettin’ his ass beat at Pain for Pride, and the leader of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic squad.
Malcolm Jones: Showdown already showed their hand, and how fuckin’ fragile their egos are. We been knew Jack Ripley and Xavier Williams were crybabies, but Justin Windgate? Well that’s new. I guess when you’re the odd person out of the match, the one even Princess Sparkle thinks is eating the pin, you gotta do what ya can to blend in and go along with your teammates, praying they’ll carry you in a match you know you don’t belong in. At least Xav and Jack can brag about winning War Games before. At least both of ‘em have reputations of really bringing it when everything is on the line, and in Jack’s case, two years ago helping DEDEDE carry an actual disgrace of a King of Elite winner at the time, to a win. However, this isn’t 2018. I’m not a vanilla bitch like Rex McAllister with a watered down version of MarrKade on my side. This ain’t even 2019 when Team Suck A Dick faced a Showdown Team that was Jamie and two lazy fucking bozos who got together, thinking everything was about to be handed to them on a silver platter, and a Dynasty Team that was defaultly led by the biggest walking example of a charity champion that I have ever seen in my life, an uninspired Serena who magically lost her voice after Jamie shit all over her one-dimensional promotional videos, and well… we all know what kind of spineless fucking bitch Darkane is these days. So yeah. 2020… shit’s about to be lit.
(Malcolm twirls the microphone and looks at his teammates. Drake is still looking over his shoulder, not fully focused on what is being said in the ring. Darcy lets out an exhausted sounding sigh, but at least she can take a little bit of comfort in knowing that at least Drake seems ready for an actual fight this time.)
Darcy May Morgan: My presence in this match seems to annoy a lot of people, which quite frankly, amuses me more than it should. I knew the second I snatched this briefcase down at Pain for Pride that people would be upset. I knew that the Pain for Pride ‘salt’ would be real. I absolutely assumed that people would have moved on by now, but I guess not ! I wish I cared about their general unhappiness, but honestly, I don’t. I made it my goal to become The Leading Lady I was meant to be, and at Pain for Pride I took my destiny in my own hands. I secured myself a world championship reign, and I can’t wait to rub my victory in the faces of everyone when that time comes. In a few minutes, I’ll step into the ring against Rex, and I will show everyone just how good I am. I know that I deserve to be in the War Games match, more so than anyone else on Voltage. I do the work. I continue to improve. I have cemented myself as someone everyone should be worried about facing. I’m not easy to beat. In fact, it takes a massive effort from anyone to put me down and keep me down. My War Games opponents won’t be able to do it. Rex isn’t going to be able to do it tonight. Like Malcolm, I welcome the smoke from everyone. I want everyone to come at me with everything they have, verbally and physically. I keep hearing everyone talk about how DEDEDE’s words have the ability to throw you off your game and make you question everything about yourself :mjlol: There’s not a single person in this company capable of making me question myself. I know who I am and where I’m going, and I know everything that I will end up accomplishing. I’m an all time great in the making and War Games Winner is going to look amazing on my resume.
Darcy May Morgan: Being in a match like War Games is something I have been waiting to sink my teeth into. I have always welcomed competition, and there are some bigtime names that will be across from me come Territorial Invasion. I can’t wait. Team Voltage is going to dominate. The false hope that the Liquid Swords and Sarah Price will carry into the match will only take them so far. The experience Xavier Williams and Jack Ripley have, and the drive their teammate, Justin Windgate has, won’t get them a much needed victory. It’s going to be satisfying to add all these so-called important names to the list I have of all the people who have fallen at my feet. I said I wanted more moments like the one I had when I won the Specialists Championship. Standing over Andrea Valentine’s body after taking a championship from her is something I’ll never forget. Grabbing the briefcase at Pain for Pride is something I’ll never forget. Standing in the ring as a winner at the end of War Games is going to be something I never forget. Bring it on, bitches.
(The attention is on Drake now, and he seems to realize that. He looks at Darcy and then at Malcolm, and then he turns his attention to the stage. Drake takes several deep breaths, obviously to try and suppress his emotions, and he points a shaking hand towards the entrance to the ringside area. After a moment, he thinks better of it, and brings his hands together with the microphone between them. He bows his head.)
Drake King: Let us pray.
Malcolm Jones: :skip:
Darcy May Morgan: :lupe:
Drake King: I call upon Myself, asking Myself to find the answers to the questions that are currently haunting me. Do I practice what I preach and continue to right the wrongs that I have done to the people of this wonderful company? Or do I reach deep down into my soul and find the darkness, unleashing Hell on all those who dare to mock me, intimidate me, and play their mind games with me? I do believe it is my ultimate calling to help my brother, Malcolm, and my sister, Darcy, as they head into this bloody battle in just a few weeks time. I have placed this responsibility on my shoulders, to take them both by the hand, and lead them into a war that we will no doubt win.
(Darcy and Malcolm, both of whom were at least pretending to try and bow their heads and play along, can’t help but look at each other, both of them with “wtf” looks on their faces.)
Drake King: I forgive Myself for failing the first true test I have been given. Feeding the Devil and allowing him to live on is a mistake that can not be duplicated going forward. For I have the power to decide the fate of each and every single Elitist that steps foot inside this ring, and I, for one, vow to continue my mission of rewriting the future, and giving the world the one it deserves. The one where I stand tall, striking down those who do not follow the vision of what MY world is supposed to look like. Amen.
(Drake looks up and immediately, Malcolm and Darcy neutralize their faces. Darcy does what she believes to be the blessing of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and Malcolm mumbles ‘amen’ or something along the lines of it. Drake, meanwhile, gives a cold hard stare into the camera.)
Drake King: Galatians 5, verses 19 through 21 state the following: Now the works of the flesh are evident; sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of Drake the Almighty. For I am ‘The Last Messiah.’ I am the judge and the jury, and come Territorial Invasion, I will be the executioner. To follow this up with a quote from 1 John 3:8, whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason I have appeared is to destroy the works of the devil. The wrath of Drake will rain down inside of War Games, and from that, absolutely nobody is safe. Let this be a warning to everyone, that from this moment and going forward, there will be no mercy.
(Drake drops the microphone and takes a deep breath, closing his eyes and allowing himself to feel the power of Drake the Redeemer course through his veins. “This is Your Life” by The Dust Brothers & Tyler Durden begins to blast across the PA system. Malcolm and Drake turn their attention to Darcy, to give her some encouragement before her match with Rex, and Voltage fades into a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for U.S. Open tennis.)
(Voltage fades back in from break.)
(With Darcy May Morgan already in the ring, she stands out of the way of Bella Braxton, who’s ready to call the match!)
Bella Braxton: The following non-title match is scheduled for one fall!
(“Champion” by Barnes Courtney begins to play into the Performance Center and the crowd explodes for the EAW World Champion as he comes out with the championship and an excited, yet determined expression as he takes in the atmosphere!)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first and already in the ring, from Kent, United Kingdom weighing 130 pounds, DAAARRRCYYY MAAAAY MORRRRGAAAAANN! And now her opponent, making his way to the ring from Sea Isle, New Jersey… weighing in at 238 pounds… he is the EAW WORLD CHAMPION….. REEEXXXX MCAAAALIIISSSTEERRRRR!!!
Persephone: He looks so good!!!
Rich Russillo: Besides that, he’s also prepared to go at it tonight with Darcy in what I’m sure will be one hard-hitting match! They’ve both got a lot on their plate ahead of them in the weeks to come, but tonight, they’ll get each other and this match has been one that the EAW Universe has been looking forward to themselves!
James Peters: These two are at their best, and with everything going on, I couldn’t think of a better time to have these two meet in the ring! Darcy may have made her intentions clear for the Universal Women’s Championship, but that’s surely not going to stop her from bringing everything she can to the table against Rex, and knowing him like we’ve been able to get to, he’s got to be just as ready to get this underway!
(Rex enters the ring and raises the EAW World Championship before he looks back over his shoulder to Darcy, grinning confidently in her direction only to receive a sarcastic smile and applause, along with an impatient wave and a call for him to get for the match to start. With his determination and eagerness unwavered, Rex hands off the title and takes his position across from Darcy!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Darcy and Rex start things off by circling around the ring, and all I can imagine is going through Darcy’s mind now as they go to lunge at each other is-
Persephone: WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!?
Rich Russillo: JUST AS THEY GO TO LOCK UP, DARCY DROPS REX RIGHT WHERE HE STANDS WITH THE TTYN!! TALK TO YOU NEVER!!! REX TAKES THAT PUNCH RIGHT TO THE FACE FROM DARCY AND REX GOES DOWN!!! DARCY QUICKLY DROPS DOWN OVER REX FOR THE COVER!!!
James Peters: REX KICKS OUT! AND DARCY LOOKS TO THE REFEREE FOR ONLY A MOMENT BEFORE SHE STARTS POUNDING REX OVER THE HEAD WITH PUNCH AFTER PUNCH!!
Persephone: CAN SHE STOP?!?! IT’S BAD ENOUGH THAT SHE LITERALLY CHEATED WHEN SHE TOOK THAT CHEAP SHOT ON REX AND YOU TWO ARE PRACTICALLY CONDONING IT!
Rich Russillo: Cheap shot or not, Darcy knows exactly who Rex is and what he’s capable of! Not only that, but this is one hell of an important match for her to win just before Territorial Invasion – what winning could do and mean for her team’s and her own momentum would be monumental!
Persephone: Who the fuck can even be bothered thinking about momentum at a time like this, Rich?! Get your priorities straight; she just tried to steal the damn match!
James Peters: Rich explained things quite well just now if you ask me! Darcy continues to want to prove that she can continue to rise to the big occasions, and tonight, there’s no bigger occasion than being inside that ring with a competitor like Rex!
Persephone: Well can she stay the hell down for once?!
James Peters: Darcy brings Rex to his feet and whips him across the ring into the ropes, and Rex comes rebounding back to find Darcy bent forward perhaps looking to hit a back body drop, but the EAW Champion flings DMM to the mat by her hair! She quickly rushes to get up off the canvas just to take a jumping knee to the side of the head that takes her back down, and Rex works hastily to snatch up her arms to send her across the ring with a butterfly suplex! Darcy hits the mat and sits up, and Rex follows up with a bicycle kick the back of the head, and now a rolling neck snap!
Rich Russillo: Rex uses his momentum to come right up onto his feet after that, and now there’s a low dropkick, giving Darcy no time to even think about getting out the way! And now Rex drops into a pin!
James Peters: Rex immediately gets his hands back on Darcy and she’s hauled up into a snap suplex! Rex turning over now while stilling holding onto Darcy and he connects with another! Our EAW World Champ now rolls backward to end up over Darcy and he’s coming down hard with those elbow smashes to the face while he keeps Miss Cash in the Vault’s head up!
Persephone: I love it when he gets aggressive like this
Rich Russillo: And he knows he’s going to need to be, perhaps even more so when dealing with Darcy! She’s proven to be as cunning and sharp as anyone could be, but at the same time, if there’s anyone who could combat that, it’s Rex!
Persephone: Duh! As if there was anyone else who could do it as great as him while looking as good as he does? Speaking of, let’s take this time to talk about how cute he is while trying to break Darcy’s face into something actually worth looking at; he’s so generous!
James Peters: I can assure everyone watching on that there’s nothing cute about how those closed fist punches must feel to Darcy! Rex brings Darcy to stand and whips her off into a corner of the ring where Darcy collides with the turnbuckles, where she comes to turn around into a jumping clothesline! Rex pulls her into a side headlock ready to take off running into a bulldog, but Darcy shoves him away just in time!
Rich Russillo: Darcy takes off at Rex just as she’s turning around looking for the Face Ache! But Rex catches her leg! Darcy hops around on one foot while trying to convince Rex to let it down, Rex simply toying with her for a moment before he spins her around and takes her up off the mat completely for a back suplex! Darcy turns over trying to get up but takes a big boot to the best instantly that shoves her into the ropes, and Darcy comes springing forward with that surge of velocity into a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker! Darcy gets slammed to the mat off his knee and Rex makes another cover!
Persephone: This bitch is so annoying; she kicks out and for what?! Does she really think she stands a chance?!
James Peters: She seemed to have Rex, and even you, pretty caught off guard earlier.
Rich Russillo: Rex proceeds to toss Darcy through the air with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex and Darcy goes rolling to the ropes looking completely thrown off in the moment! She pulls herself up with the use of the ropes as Rex comes at her and she ends up lifting him up over the to rope and out onto the apron! The EAW Champion manages to cling onto the rope, however, and he lands on his feet!
James Peters: The former Specialists Champion just tried to hit Rex off to the ground but he stopped that idea right in its tracks as he caught her clean in the face with a huge right hand! Rex shoots one of his legs through the ropes to kick and knock her away, sending back toward the middle of the ring before he grabs onto the top rope looking to slingshot his way back in-
Rich Russillo: BUT DARCY LEAPS FORWARD, STEPPING UP ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE AND BLASTING REX OFF THE APRON WITH A KNEE STRIKE!! REX FLIES OFF THE APRON AND DARCY STEPS OUT THE RING, GOING TO GET A HOLD OF REX!
James Peters: But once getting down, Darcy stalks around the champion with a smirk on her face to admire her handiwork while Rex is slowly looking to make it back to his feet. Done with watching, Rex looks to be in trouble as Darcy runs him back against the apron! She pulls him away from the ring and drives him into the edge again, causing a shout to come from the champion this time! She finally rolls him into the ring and goes to climb the turnbuckles from the outside-
Persephone: But Rex shoots up to his feet, and runs over to knock her down with a big boot! HAHAHAAAAAAA! DARCY LOSES HER GRIP AND SHE HITS OFF THE APRON BEFORE SHE HITS THE GROUND! Rex runs across the ring to hit off the ropes and comes back for a baseball slide while Darcy tries to get up, and he- ends up in the apron skirt?!
Rich Russillo: Innovative offense from Darcy as she pulled the apron skirt forward to avoid taking that hit! AND NOW SHE STARTS PUMMELING REX WHILE SHE HAS HIM TRAPPED! DARCY WITH A MUTLTITUDE OF KICKS AND STOMPS TO GET THE CHAMPION DOWN! EVEN AS HE DISAPPEARS UNDER THE SKIRT DARCY REFUSES TO LET UP AND GIVE REX A CHANCE TO BREATHE!
James Peters: Darcy drags him out from under the apron skirt and gets him into the ring, but this time doesn’t waste a second as she stays on him and follows him up with a running bulldog from behind! Rex turns over covering his face and Darcy comes dropping down on him with a moonsault double knee drop for a pin!
Rich Russillo: Rex’s shoulder comes shooting up off the mat and Darcy slaps him across the face !!! She gets him with a stomp over the back as he turns over and clubs him over the head as she goes to bring him up, laying into him with yet another big strike on the top of his head! Darcy now going for a german suplex that causes Rex to come dropping down on the back of his head and neck, and just as he tries to push himself back up, Darcy sprints forward with a low dropkick that sends him rolling to a corner!
James Peters: Darcy heads to the opposite corner across from the champion before she takes off into a run, jumping forward into a handspring forearm smash! Darcy steps up onto the bottom rope and batters the side of Rex’s head with a number of side kicks as he’s stuck in the corner, and Darcy finally relents when Rex manages to stumble out the way! But Darcy’s right behind him, not giving him a chance to recover as she goes low with a chop block to take one of Rex’s legs out from under him!
Persephone: I’m pretty sure she’s been cheating this whole match, so I’m not surprised she’d keep playing dirty while the referee does nothing about it . And Rex is struggling to stand now while Darcy backs away, I don’t like the way she’s looking at him. She comes charging at him- SPEAR!!! YESSSSS!!! REX LEAPS FORWARD AND TAKES THAT BITCH TO THE MAT WITH A SPEAR THAT MIGHT AS WELL HAVE PRACTICALLY CUT HER IN HALF!!!
James Peters: Rex takes a moment to collect himself before he starts bashing Darcy’s head with repeated forearm strikes as he brings her up to her feet, but Darcy lunges forward looking to strike! BUT REX DAMN NEAR TAKES HER HEAD OFF WITH A SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE! AND HE DOESN’T LET GO AS HE FORCEFULLY PULLS HER UP INTO ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE! AND NOW ANOTHER!
Rich Russillo: REX DRAGS HER UP AGAIN AND THIS TIME PULLS HER IN, TAKING HER DOWN WITH A RUSSIAN LEGSWEEP! Rex floating over now to get back to his own feet, this time with a hold on both of Darcy’s arm- AND HE BARELY GETS HER OFF THE MAT BEFORE STOMPING DOWN RIGHT ON HER CHEST, FORCING HER BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS!
Persephone: Didn’t I say she never stood a chance?! For whatever reason nobody listens to me or takes me seriously, and it always happens when I’m right! Darcy clutches at her chest as she’s still down on the mat and I hope that somehow Rex managed to actually bust one of her implants just now because it’s the only thing she deserves right now for trying to defy our Voltage King. And now he’s about to finish her off as he goes for the pin !!!
James Peters: Say whatever you want about Darcy, Persephone, but there’s no denying that Darcy has done everything that’d be needed so far to stay in this match and even had the upper hand at times so far! Rex looks to continue to wear her down though, as he stomps down on her stomach before hauling her off the mat with that deadlift german suplex!
Rich Russillo: And he simply rolls over with his arms still locked around Darcy’s waist to bring her up with him, and he drops her down on the back of her head with yet another german suplex! Rex brings her up once again- AND HE LAUNCHES HER BACK TOWARD THE TURNBUCKLES WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! THE BACK OF DARCY’S HEAD HITTING HARD OFF THAT BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE AS SHE COMES DOWN!
James Peters: Darcy is slow to pull herself up off the mat but she’s got the use of the ropes for help, and Rex is ruthless as he comes at her with shoulder thrust after shoulder thrust to the gut now that he’s got Darcy trapped in the corner! He refuses to let up until the referee steps in starting a count, but he stops to break it and backs up, only not before repaying Darcy for that slap from earlier as he calls for Darcy to come at him!
Rich Rusillo: Darcy’s still recovering however and Rex apparently isn’t interested in waiting as he goes running-
James Peters: DARCY COMES SPRINTING AT REX OUT THE CORNER AND SHE LEAPS THROUGH THE AIR AND RIGHT AT HIM!! PLOT TWIST!! DARCY TAKES HIM DOWN AND REX ENDS UP COMING DOWN ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD NOW, AND DARCY SCRAMBLES INTO THE COVER!!!
Persephone: DON’T LET HER WIN! PLEASE KICK OUT!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT NO!!!! Rex kicks out and Darcy sits up looking frustrated and exhausted! Miss Cash in the Vault finally brings herself to accept it by bringing Rex to his feet and she aims to bring him up across her shoulders, but Rex elbows his way down out her grasp and back onto his feet! Darcy with a back kick before landing a back handspring into a handstand headscissors takedown, flinging Rex across the ring!
James Peters: Darcy notices that he’s slow to rise and she darts after him, but he ducks under the clothesline and she ends up in the corner! She stops herself from hitting the turnbuckles and catches Rex with a back elbow just in time, and Darcy heads up the turnbuckles where she takes off and leaps at the champion to hit a diving crossbody!
Persephone: BUT REX COMES ROLLING OUT OF IT WITH DARCY IN HIS HANDS AND THROWS HER OVERHEAD WITH A FALLAWAY SLAM! Our EAW World Champion is so powerful !!! Darcy makes the dumb decision to get back to her feet and Rex goes to swing at her but she blocks it?! How?! Darcy lunges to punch but Rex catches her wrist just like I knew he would and pulls her in over his shoulders! OLYMPIC SLAM!! DARCY IS FLOORED AFTER THAT AND REX HAS HER RIGHT WHERE HE WANTS HER TO PIN HER!
Rich Russillo: I’m not so sure of that, and I don’t think Rex is so sure yet either, as he doesn’t pin her just yet! Rex brings her to stand and sends her off into the corner where he looks to hit a high knee, but Darcy slips out the way! Darcy runs off the ropes and comes back trying for a slingblade but REX STOPS HER MOMENTUM WITH A SPINNING SIDE SLAM! THE BACK OF DARCY’S HEAD HITTING THE MAT OFF THAT EXCHANGE AND REX NOW ON HIS FEET FOR A STANDING MOONSAULT! REX STAYS ON FOR THE PIN!!
Persephone: Super Darcy just won’t quit, will she?!
James Peters: Credit to her for taking that onslaught of moves and still managing to stay in it! She’s not wanting to pass up the chance of what she can bring against someone of Rex’s caliber, though not only is Rex one of the best to show her just what it’s like to compete at this level but he’s showing what he’ll do to set the bar for bringing it in the ring! Rex is looking to leave no stone unturned for how to keep Darcy down, proving that by lifting Darcy up for a powerbomb!
Rich Russillo: But Darcy starts coming down with punches to the top of Rex’s head, desperately trying to escape his grasp! But Rex refuses to go down! Rex turning now- HE’S GONNA THROW HER INTO THE CORNER AND LAND THAT BUCKLE BOMB!
James Peters: NO! Darcy rakes his eyes just before the release and she gets dropped, stumbling back into the corner and Rex comes at her, taking a back elbow to the face! Darcy getting onto the middle turnbuckle and takes flight with a meteora! But Rex ducks under her and Darcy rolls through her momentum, coming up to her feet only for Rex to get her from behind! BACK SUPLEX INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!
Rich Russillo: DARCY’S HEAD HITS OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND REX LEAVES HER TO UNCERIMONOUSLY COLLAPSE IN A HEAP ON THE MAT! Darcy kicks at the mat clutching at the back of her head, no doubt feeling the effects of that one and Rex pulls her out the corner, hitting a jumping double knee drop right to the abdomen before rolling forward through it and to the corner!
James Peters: Rex now looks to go up high! Rex climbs the turnbuckles with his back to Darcy and he aims to go all the way up top, and he’s slow to get his footing on the top turnbuckle- AND DARCY KNOCKS ONE OF HIS LEGS OUT AND CRASHES DOWN SEATED ON THE TOP BUCKLE! DARCY GOES TO PULL HIM OFF AND ACROSS HER SHOULDERS!! REX TRES TO ELBOW HER AWAY BUT DARCY WON’T LET UP!!
Persephone: CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS?!
Rich Russillo: PERSEPHONE’S WHINING CAN ONLY MEAN ONE THING, AND IT’S BECAUSE SHE KNOWS REX IS VULNERABLE RIGHT NOW! DARCY MANAGES TO GET HIM PROPERLY POSITION BEFORE TAKING HIM TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!! UP AND OVER HE GOES!! CURTAIN CALL FROM DARCY!!!
James Peters: AND REX COMES SWINGING DOWN WITH A HOLD STILL ON DARCY FOR THE REX EFFECT!!! REX COUNTERS DARCY FROM OUT OF NOWHERE AND SPIKES DARCY ON THE TOP OF HER HEAD WITH A DDT, LEAVING HER SPRAWLED OUT ON THE MAT!! REX TRUDGING OVER AS FAST AS HE CAN TO MAKE A COVER!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Champion” by Barnes Courtney hits and the crowd behind the plexiglass erupts into cheers as Rex slowly but surely makes it to his feet, the EAW Championship in hand after getting it from the referee!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, the EAW World Champion… REX MCALLISTER!!!!
James Peters: In an incredible match, Rex defeats Darcy May Morgan to come out on top here tonight on Voltage!
Persephone: Just like I knew he would!
Rich Russillo: You were sweating as much as Rex is, and all you did was watch.
James Peters: There’s no doubt that Darcy surely came close to winning, and displayed her abilities on the main event level that should have the attention of not only the women’s division but EAW in its entirety; and her being on Voltage is what makes it even better. She’s no one to take lightly or overlook!
(Inside the ring, Rex comes down from the turnbuckles with the EAW Championship still in hand and sees Darcy coming to in the ring with assistance from the referee, who Rex asks to step aside.)
Persephone: I hope he cheap shots her, it’s what she deserves after how she started this match and I wouldn’t blame him one bit- now why’s he holding out his hand?
(Rex has his hand out for Darcy to take as she remains seated on the mat, looking frustrated as she looks away from Rex and his hand for a moment. Darcy is as competitive as they come, and it’s clear that she had no other intention than winning this match.)
James Peters: Rex surely seems to know that he got Darcy’s best tonight, and even if she is frustrated, Darcy has got to know it too! A good show of sportsmanship from the EAW Champion, who’s recognized Darcy as a legit competitor despite how she may be criticized at times for her attitude.
(Rex has yet to budge and seeing this, Darcy looks back at him as he nods his head, before she finally takes his hand to help her up! Rex initiates a handshake and Darcy comes around to it, giving an understanding nod that doesn’t need accompanying words for everyone else to know there’s a mutual respect here in the moment.)
James Peters: Wait a second, WHAT THE HELL!?
Rich Russillo: YOU’LL FLOAT TOO!!
James Peters: IT’S TEAM SHOWDOWN!!! JACK RIPLEY JUST SUPERKICKED REX’S HEAD OFF HER SHOULDERS, MEANWHILE XAVIER AND JUSTIN JUST TACKLED MISS CASH IN THE VAULT!! XAVIER WILLIAMS, JUSTIN WINDGATE, JACK RIPLEY, THEY’RE MAKING A STATEMENT HERE ON VOLTAGE RIGHT NOW! ALL THREE MEN ARE ATTACKING BOTH DARCY AND REX, JUST AFTER THEY WENT THROUGH THAT GRUELING MATCH NOT TOO LONG AGO! IF THERE WAS A PERFECT TIME FOR THESE GUYS TO ATTACK I SUPPOSE IT WAS NOW, DARCY AND REX SEEN DEFENSELESS! THEY’RE CLEARLY OUTNUMBERED AND REX WAS CAUGHT OFF GUARD WITH A HUGE SUPERKIC-
(‘Scenario’ by Pop Smoke hits, and both Malcolm Jones and Drake King rush down to the ring, with Xavier Williams and Jack Ripley exiting the ring to go after them.)
Rich Russillo: MALCOLM JONES! DRAKE KING! TEAM VOLTAGE IS HERE AND THEY’RE GOING RIGHT AFTER XAVIER AND JACK, MEANWHILE DARCY IS DOING HER BEST TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST JUSTIN AS REX SLOWLY ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!
James Peters: MALCOLM HITS XAVIER WITH A HUGE KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION BEFORE SENDING HIM BACK INTO THE RING, AND NOW HE FOLLOWS BEHIND! DRAKE ON THE OTHER HAND JUST SLAMMED JACK’S FACE INTO THE POST, AND NOW HE BRINGS HIM BACK INTO THE RING AS WELL! RIGHT NOW BOTH VOLTAGE AND SHOWDOWN’S WARGAMES TEAMS ARE FIGHTING, AND VOLTAGE IS ACTUALLY GETTING THE UPPER HAND HERE AS DARCY MANAGES TO PULL JUSTIN DOWN TO THE MAT BEFORE PUNCHING AWAY AT HIM-
Rich Russillo: Oh my God! SHOWDOWN’S BRAND WARFARE TEAM IS HERE!! VOLTAGE IS DEFINITELY OUTNUMBERED NOW!! MALCOLM JONES WAS FIGHTING XAVIER WILLIAMS, BUT HARLOW REICHERT AND RAVEN ROBERTS JUST GRABBED MALCOLM BY THE LEGS AND PULLED HIM OUT OF THE RING!
James Peters: CONSUELA ROSE AVA AND SKA JUST WENT AFTER DARCY MAY MORGAN! Darcy just had the upper hand against Justin Windgate but that didn’t last too long, as now both Malcolm and Darcy are in three versus one situations here! Meanwhile Drake and Jack are still brawling it out- AND JAKE SMITH JUST CAME AND ATTACKED DRAKE FROM BEHIND! WAS THIS SOME TYPE OF AMBUSH!? BOTH SHOWDOWN’S WARGAMES TEAM AND THEIR BRAND WARFARE TEAM IS ATTACKING VOLTAGE’S WARGAMES TEAM, THEY DON’T STAND A CHANCE IN ODDS LIKE THAT!!
Persephone: REXY!!! SEXY REXY IS GOING TO HELP DARCY AGAINST CONSUELA SKA AND JUSTIN! REXY IS TRYING TO FIGHT OFF SKA, BUT WAIT!! NO!!! OH MY GOD THIS ISN’T FAIR AT ALL! JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST WENT AFTER REX WHILE CONSUELA IS STILL DEALING WITH DARCY! CONSUELA JUST KICKED DARCY OUT OF THE RING, AND NOW SHE’S FOLLOWING BEHIND HER, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY REXY IS OUTNUMBERED RIGHT NOW AND SKA AND JUSTIN MANAGED TO TAKE HIM DOWN!
James Peters: MEANWHILE OUTSIDE OF THE RING DARCY JUST RAMMED CONSUELA INTO THE RING APRON, BUT RAVEN ROBERTS IS RIGHT THERE TO HELP CONSUELA WITH DARCY! VOLTAGE DOESN’T STAND A CHANCE RIGHT NOW! HARLOW AND XAVIER ARE SURPRISINGLY WORKING TOGETHER AS THEY’RE JUST STOMPING OUT MALCOLM JONES, RAVEN AND CONSUELA ARE BOTH ATTACKING DARCY, SKA AND WINDGATE ARE BOTH ON TOP OF REX, AND DRAKE HAS TO DEAL WITH BOTH JACK RIPLEY AND JAKE SMITH ON HIM!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Showdown has taken over the show! I just don’t know how they’re gonna- WAIT! WAIT A SECOND, LOOK!!
(Soon all of the Voltage Brand Warfare members begin running down the ramp, causing Showdown’s Brand Warfare team to shift their attention there.)
Rich Russillo: WE’RE SAVED! WE’RE SAVED EVERYONE!!! JAKE JUST ROLLED OUT OF THE RING TO GO TOWARDS TERRY CHAMBERS BUT TERRY JUST TOOK JAKE DOWN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP WITH A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN! I’M SURE TERRY’S BEEN WAITING TO DO THAT FOR A LONG TIME, AND LOOK OVER THERE! MINERVA AND RAVEN ROBERTS CHARGING TOWARDS EACH OTHER, AND MINERVA JUST RAMMED HER INTO THE BARRICADE! TLA IS GOING AFTER SKA, MEANWHILE AHREN FOURNIER IS GOING AFTER CONSUELA ROSE AVA, AND MYLES IS GOING AFTER HARLOW!
Persephone: This is weird, is Terry just gonna let Ahren beat up his girl? Is Rex not gonna save Raven from Minerva? ACTUALLY, ON SECOND THOUGHT, PLEASE DON’T SAVE RAVEN REXY! LET MINERVA KILL HER SO YOU’LL BE FREE AGAIN !!!
James Peters: Do you really think any of them can really tell what’s going on around them right now!? This is a huge mess all around the ring and inside of it! Drake is backed in the corner inside the ring by Jack Ripley, still trying to find a way to fight back! Malcolm Jones has gotten the upper hand again against Xavier Williams, Darcy May Morgan and Rex McAllister have taken down Justin Windgate and are working together to keep him down! It looks like Minerva’s gotten the upper hand against Raven Roberts, AND SHE JUST SPIT THE DARK MIST IN RAVEN’S FACE BEFORE GRABBING HER AND RAMMING HER INTO THE RING POST! TERRY CHAMBERS HAS GOTTEN THE BETTER OF JAKE SMITH, AND HE JUST DROPPED HIM WITH A T5 AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Voltage is starting to take control right now! Most of the fights right now are either fairly even or are being ended by the members of the Voltage roster! Voltage is taking back their show, come on Voltage you’ve got this! WAIT, WAIT A MINUTE! TERRY LOOK OUT!! LOOK OUT TERRY!!!
James Peters: KHAMSIN JUST ATTACKED TERRY FROM BEHIND! NO WAY!!! DYNASTY’S WARGAMES TEAM IS HERE, BUT THEY’RE NOT HERE ALONE! DYNASTY’S BRAND WARFARE TEAM IS HERE, AND SO IS SERENA BENNETT!!! NO NO NO, THIS ISN’T GOOD!!! THIS ISN’T GOOD AT ALL!!!
Rich Russillo: RAVEN WAS BLINDED BY MINERVA AND THAT ALLOWED MINERVA TO TAKE RAVEN DOWN WITH THE DEVILS TOUCH, BUT NOW SERENA BENNETT IS GOING RIGHT AFTER HER! SERENA BENNETT MANAGED TO DEFEAT MINERVA AT BLOODSPORT FOR THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP, BUT I’M SURE THESE TWO STILL HAVE JUST AS MUCH HATRED AS EVER FOR EACH OTHER! SERENA IS ON TOP OF MINERVA RIGHT NOW, AND MINERVA LOOKS NEARLY DEFENSELESS AS SHE DIDN’T SEE SERENA COMING!
James Peters: CHARLIE MARR IS GOING AFTER MALCOLM JONES!!! MALCOLM AND CHARLIE IT SEEMS STILL HAVE SOME LINGERING ISSUES FROM PAIN FOR PRIDE, BUT NOW XAVIER GETS IN THE MIX AS HE TAKES ON CHARLIE MARR! MALCOLM WITH A HUGE KICK TO XAVIER’S STOMACH THOUGH, AND CHARLIE ATTEMPTS TO HIS MALCOLM WITH A KNEE BUT MALCOLM AVOIDS IT BEFORE SENDING CHARLIE INTO THE PLEXIGLASS!!
Rich Russillo: WAIT, WAIT LOOK!!! CANDICE BLAIR IS HERE NOW AND SHE’S GOING AFTER SERENA BENNETT!!!! CANDICE IS GOING AFTER SERENA, AND THAT ALLOWS MINERVA TO GET BACK UP AND HELP CANDICE WITH HER! IT LOOKS LIKE SERENA’S OUTNUMBERED HERE!
Persephone: NO!!! MR. DEDEDE JUST GRABBED REX AND PULLED HIM UNDER THE ROPES OUT OF THE RING!!! NO! NO NO NO NO NO!!!! MR. DEDEDE JUST TOSSED REX HEADFIRST INTO OUR PLEXIGLASS, OH MY GOD REXY LOOKS OUT OF IT!!!! WHY!? HE JUST WENT THROUGH THAT LONG MATCH WITH DARCY!
James Peters: SPEAKING OF DARCY IT LOOKS LIKE DARCY’S MANAGED TO TAKE JUSTIN OUT WITH THE TTYN, MEANWHILE DRAKE JUST HIT JACK RIPLEY WITH THE SCRIPTURE!! BOTH DRAKE AND DARCY ARE IN THE RING ALONE- BUT THAT DOESN’T LAST TOO LONG AS SARAH PRICE SLIDES IN AND DROPS DARCY MAY MORGAN WITH THE BITTERSWEET ENDING!!!
Rich Russillo: CANDICE AND MINERVA JUST WORKED TOGETHER AND SENT SERENA BENNETT INTO THE BARRICADE! Minerva and Candice clearly don’t like each other, but at a time like this do they really have any other choice but to work together!? MINERVA AND CANDICE BOTH GOING AFTER IMPACT NOW, BUT IMPACT JUST HIT THE FIST OF FUR- WAIT NO HE DIDN’T! MINERVA DUCKED THE FIST OF FURY AND NOW SHE KICKS IMPACT IN THE MIDSECTION, AND BOTH WOMEN ARE GOING AFTER HIM!
James Peters: This is insane! TLA managed to take out MITSUBACHI with the Mexican Destroyer, but now SKA is right back on top of TLA before he could even get back up! Meanwhile Harlow and Myles are brawling, BUT XANDER PAYNE JUST HIT HARLOW WITH THE OVERDOSE!!! HARLOW LOOKS OUT, AND NOW JUST LOOK AT THE LOOK BETWEEN XANDER AND MYLES, WHO STILL HAVE UNFINISHED BUSINESS FROM EARLIER!
Rich Russillo: Chris Elite and Ahren Fournier are too busy fighting, I don’t think they even realize that Consuela Rose Ava is on the top rope! MOONSAULT FROM THE TOP ROPE ONTO BOTH MEN!!!! THE FORMER ILLIONAIRES WERE TOO BUSY CAUGHT UP IN THEIR OWN FIGHT THEY DIDN’T EVEN SEE CONSUELA COMING, MEANWHILE XAVIER WILLIAMS IS ACTUALLY GOING AFTER MR. DEDEDE, LEAVING CHARLIE AND MALCOLM TO FIGHT ON THEIR OWN!
James Peters: TERRY TAKES OUT KHAMSIN WITH ANOTHER T5!!!! TERRY JUST TOOK OUT YET ANOTHER PERSON AND NOW HE- WAIT! HE’S STOPPED BY CONSUELA ROSE AVA!! CONSUELA AND TERRY BOTH ARE JUST LOOKING EACH OTHER IN THE EYE, I DON’T THINK THEY EXPECTED TO FIGHT EACH OTHER AT A TIME LIKE THI-
Rich Russillo: MINERVA!!!! PARADISE LOST ONTO CONSUELA!!!! Minerva is telling Terry to get his head back in the game, they can’t afford to just be standing around at a time like this! Terry and Minerva now going to help Candice Blair who’s struggling with Impact, AND BOTH OF THEM KICK IMPACT IN THE MIDSECTION BEFORE BEGINNING TO PUMMEL AWAY AT HIM!
Rich Russillo: Terry, Minerva, and Candice Blair are all on top of Impact right now! Candice and Minerva are holding Impact by his arms now, AND THAT ALLOWS TERRY TO HIT IMPACT WITH THE RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE!!! IMPACT IS OUT OF IT!!! I’ll admit I’m impressed by Minerva and Candice right now after what Minerva did last week to Candice, but once this is over I’m sure these two won’t be working together again anytime soon- WAIT LOOK! TLA HAS JUST HIT SKA WITH THE MEXICAN DESTROYER!!!!
James Peters: TLA TERRY AND MINERVA NOW ARE GOING AFTER BOTH MR. DEDEDE AND XAVIER WILLIAMS!!!! MINERVA JUST GRABBED XAVIER FROM BEHIND AND DROPPED HIM WITH PARADISE LOST, AND BOTH TLA AND TERRY JUST GRABBED MR. DEDEDE, AND WITH ALL THEIR POWER- OH MY GOD!!! THEY JUST THREW MR. DEDEDE THROUGH ONE OF THE PLEXIGLASS WALLS!!! THAT CAN’T BE GOOD FOR HIM AT ALL!
Rich Russillo: XANDER PAYNE JUST POPPED MYLES UP AND IS ATTEMPTING TO HIT THE LAST SEDATION, BUT CANDICE BLAIR JUST HIT XANDER FROM BEHIND WITH A CHOP BLOCK! XANDER DROPS MYLES, AND THAT ALLOWS MYLES TO FINALLY HIT XANDER WITH THE DE FACTO!!! MEANWHILE, LOOK AT CHARLIE AND MALCOLM!
James Peters: CHARLIE HITS THE CHARING CROSS- WAIT NO HE DOESN’T!!! MALCOLM DUCKED UNDER IT, AND TERRY CHAMBERS HITS CHARLIE WITH THE MOMENT OF SILENCE, ALLOWING MALCOLM TO CAPITALIZE AND HIT SHAKE THE ROOM!!! JUST ABOUT ALL OF SHOWDOWN AND DYNASTY HAS BEEN CLEARED OUT EXCEPT- Oh God… Look at the ring! Look at who’s alone standing in the ring!
Persephone: Oh boy… This should be good.
(Both Sarah Price and Drake King slowly turn towards one another after Sarah fully kicks Darcy out of the ring. Sarah doesn’t look intimidated at all, knowing that she’s basically Drake’s weakness after what went down at Dynasty. As Drake slowly turns around, not even facing her yet, Sarah begins walking towards him with a big smile on her face, as she knows he’s not going to do anything to her-)
James Peters: GUILLOTINE!!!
Rich Russillo: DRAKE JUST HIT SARAH WITH THE GUILLOTINE!!!
James Peters: Drake hasn’t pulled that move off since his return, and I don’t think there was a better time to do it than now! Has Drake gotten over his fear of Sarah like he said he did!?
Rich Russillo: Better yet, has he gotten over his fear of… The V word?
Rich Russillo: The other V word. The one that makes him snap.
Persephone: Ohhhh… That one.
James Peters: Drake is pulling Sarah up, and it’s like he’s gone mad just by looking at her! Sarah’s only able to even get to her hands and knees, BUT NOW DRAKE RUNS THE ROPES, AND THERE IT IS!!! JUDGEMENT DAY!!! DRAKE KING JUST HIT SARAH WITH BOTH THE GUILLOTINE AND THAT NASTY CURB STOMP, SARAH’S OUT! Drake’s finally showing signs of overcoming his PTSD, this is exactly what Malcolm and Darcy needed from him going into Wargames, and it looks like even his fear of… The V word, isn’t going to stop Drake! Wait… What’s Drake doing!?
Rich Russillo: Oh no, he’s pulling Sarah up again!
Persephone: What’s his problem?
James Peters: I think we both know what’s his problem! DRAKE RUNNING THE ROPES, AND HE HITS SARAH WITH A SECOND CURB STOMP!!! Drake just hit Sarah with the Guillotine, and two Curb Stomps! Drake just took out the Captain of the Dynasty Wargames team, meanwhile Voltage has managed to defend their show against both the Showdown and Dynasty roster! This was one hell of a night, I can’t even imagine what Territorial Invasion is about to bring.
(As Drake looks down at Sarah Price with nothing but malice and hatred in his eyes, fully believing that she is the Visual Prophet, Malcolm Jones helps up Darcy May Morgan, and the rest of the Voltage elitists standing help the ones that have been taken out earlier. As the Voltage roster surrounds the ring and Rex McAllister, Malcolm, and Darcy enter the ring, the two Wargames competitors both grow a smirk on their faces seeing that Drake’s seemed to overcome his fear. As the Voltage roster stands tall over the Brand Warfare competitors, Wargames competitors, and Universal Women’s Champion Serena Bennett, Voltage begins to fade out for the final time.)
