( SCREENBAR – “EARLIER TODAY” )
Voice (O.S.): What the hell…
( The scene fades in to show Matt Daniels approaching the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum. The entire building has been surrounded by protestors, police officers, and rabid wrestling fans. The EAW production trucks have been parked in a row in the middle of the parking lot, and the EAW ring crew, production techs, and the men and women who get the arenas set up for the show and television are all hanging around by the trucks. They have cops standing all around them, and it appears they are all being kept from going inside the building. Matt locks his rental car, having just driven in from the New Orleans airport, about an hour away, and begins to head towards the chaos. At the same time Matt is making his way towards the building, EVP of Intermedia Production, Ashten Cross, is strolling angrily towards Matt. )
Ashten Cross: Matt! Matt! We have a problem! We have a huge fucking problem!
( Matt and Ashten stop in front of one another and Matt removes his sunglasses, squinting at the scene. )
Matt Daniels: What the fuck is going on?
( Ashten slams a piece of paper into the chest of Matt Daniels. )
Ashten Cross: That group of police officers over there gave me this. It’s an official document from the state of Mississippi BANNING us from producing a show here tonight that is going to profit Elite Answers Wrestling in any way. That arena is locked and there’s no way for us to get in, and you know good and goddamn well that we can’t get another location on such short notice. The closest arenas to us that could host Voltage are the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans and the Mobile Civic Center in Mobile and we don’t even remotely have enough time to get everything fucking moved to another state, no matter how close in proximity they are to us. I’m at a loss. In all my years of doing this, I have NEVER seen anything like this.
( Matt is reading the document that Ashten had been holding. His face is a mix of horror, anxiety, stress, and confusion. For once, Voltage’s golden god of a co-commissioner is speechless. )
Ashten Cross: Our hands are tied, Matt. Our legal department can’t do anything because this is an official declaration from the state. Because Mississippi is full of snowflakes and Republicans, they aren’t going to allow us to use private property to host a show, meaning we have to cancel Voltage tonight, and refund everyone. Oliver and Ryan are going to have a fucking fit. Why the fuck would you let Veena have a deathmatch last week AFTER you two were placed on probation?! You know Mattel is angry with Voltage. You know that every time Voltage airs, something horrible happens and EAW stock continues to plummet. Extreme wrestling only appeals to a certain demographic and believe me, there’s not enough fans of shitty backyard wrestling that is going to keep EAW in business and Voltage on the air.
( Ashten pauses mid-rant and looks at Matt. )
Ashten Cross: Plus we are in the heart of the goddamn Bible belt. You know as well as I do that these tea party motherfucker extremists are offended over every little thing that happens these days. I’m not totally shocked that we have a bunch of bored housewives and Bible thumpers out here protesting, but cops? Getting banned from the entire state?! What the hell are we supposed to do?!
( Matt Daniels has to take a step back, as he is obviously shook. He takes another look at the paper, and just shakes his head. )
Matt Daniels: Territorial Invasion is in two weeks. We have Darkane and Chris Elite scheduled to compete tonight and that match with Andrea has to go on.
Ashten Cross: And how the hell is going to go on if we don’t have a building for it?
Matt Daniels: Sofia filmed an interview with Rex in that arena yesterday. How the hell did everything change overnight?
Ashten Cross: I don’t know! But you need to figure something out. Your ass is on the line, and we have been working together alot of years. I don’t want to see it end like this for you.
( Matt anxiously drags his hand down the golden scruff on his face. His mind was racing with a million and one different thoughts. )
Matt Daniels: Fuck.
( Matt Daniels and Ashten Cross just stand there staring at one another as the scene fades to black. )
( EAW intro plays. )
( Voltage opens up with its usual highlight video, recapping last week’s action packed episode. The match between Sarah Price and Blade is showcased first, with Blade picking up the win in the most controversial fashion. Kai Zolomon is seen defeating Consuela Rose Ava with a little bit of controversy around the victory. Felix Hartley and Archimedes J. Manson, Kai’s Territorial Invasion opponents would unintentionally distract Consuela and cost her the match. Afterwards, Kai would get some revenge and dispose of Archimedes, but Felix continued to evade him. Shawn Sturgis would pick up his first win on Voltage and defeat the living legend, The Woogieman :wow:. Newcomer Aniyah Mitchell is seen continuing her impressive roll thus far, defeating Damian Butler. After the match, Aniyah would approach Matt Daniels and demand an opportunity, thus getting herself inserted into the Divide & Conquer match at Territorial Invasion. An update of sorts is provided on Terry Chambers, via ‘found footage’ video, and the Interwire Champion is seen escaping the clutches of Dr. Bethany Blue and Nurse Rannanah Goldstein. Later on, after being defeated alongside her partner for the night, Frankie Paradise, by the team of Andrea Valentine and Ms. Extreme, Dr. Blue would find herself on the receiving end of a beatdown courtesy of Terry! The odd couple pairing of Korey Gaines and Cepheus St. Claire would defeat Jesse Barlow and Jalyn Garcia! The highly anticipated grudge deathmatch between Shortfuse PAKA and his rival, Serena Riot, would end in a no contest as both competitors were unable to answer the 10-count. For the main event of the evening, Fire and Ice would emerge victorious as Raven attempted to trap Veena in a submission hold. Veena would verbally submit and wiggle out of Raven’s hold, thus giving Fire and Ice the victory. )
( The Voltage highlight video fades out and the camera catches a panoramic shot of Biloxi Beach. Thousands of people have come out for this unique episode of Voltage, including the protestors from earlier! The protestors have their own little designated area, and are behind barricades, and the EAW ring crew and production staff have done a hell of a job turning a public beach into a fresh looking, almost free-per-view quality set for the popular Sunday night show. There is no pyro, but the Voltage theme song, “33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula & Zillakami, is blasting from some impressive bose speakers found in the production truck. Everyone on the beach is drenched in the setting sun, liquor and beer in hand, and look to be having a blast. The camera finally cuts to James Peters and Rich Russillo who are chilling in lounge chairs, dressed in swim trunks and matching palm tree print shirts. They beam. )
James Peters: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… WELCOME TO VOLTAGE!
Rich Russillo: :blessed: THEY TRIED TO CANCEL US BUT HERE WE FUCKING ARE!
James Peters: Come hell or high water, Voltage will go on!
Rich Russillo: Fuck yeah it will, and tonight we have one hell of a main event. In the final War Games preview of the weekend, Voltage’s own Andrea Valentine will take on Darkane from Dynasty and Chris Elite from Showdown. Thus far, Voltage and Showdown have picked up victories with Ms. Extreme defeating Ahren Fournier and Serena Fournier on Dynasty, and Jamie O’Hara winning against TLA and Raven Roberts last night.
James Peters: I know our Queens were looking for a clean sweep this weekend, but Raven fought her heart out last night and I know that this setback is only going to make her hungrier going into War Games.
Rich Russillo: Two out of three a’int bad, though. There’s no doubt in my mind about Andrea’s ability to get the job done tonight!
James Peters: Tonight’s show is action packed, and even though they tried to ban us from having it, here we are! In addition to tonight’s main event, the number one contender for the EAW World Championship, Rex McAllister, is in action tonight. He will square off against Jesse Barlow, and what makes this match fun is the fact our wonderful champion, Big Dick Bharlie, is going to be the special guest referee. There is no way he will ever be impartial, and I’m just curious to see how Rex ends up surviving this match.
Rich Russillo: Well if anyone can overcome the odds, it would be Rex. The former two-time world champion is as resilient as they come, but…
James Peters: Yeah…
( Rich and James are cut off as “For Free” by Drake begins to play. The crowd cheers as the host of ‘Cloth Talk’, Talib Bari, makes his way out. Talib is wearing expensive sunglasses, and is keeping with the chill vacation vibe by wearing a stunning gold silk shirt and baggy, camo print cargo shorts. )
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME THE HOST OF ‘CLOTH TALK’… TALIB BARI!!!!
( Inside the ring, dressed in cut off denim shorts, sandals, and a white tube top, the Voltage ring announcer beams. Talib smirks as Bella passes him the microphone and the former REVOLT GOAT motions for the crowd to get loud. They obviously oblige him and after a few more seconds “For Free” fades out. )
Talib Bari: Yo this ain’t our usual set but it’s all good. I get we gotta improvise because those bozos over there stay trying to get us cancelled and knocked off the air.
( The camera cuts to the annoyed protestors and the crowd jeers. )
Talib Bari: I respect the fuck outta Matt and Veena for improvising. The show’s gotta go on and tonight on ‘Cloth Talk’ we gunna be talkin’ War Games! Now I know there’s a little bit of drama surrounding Team Voltage, and how Ms. Extreme, Raven, and Andrea been set up to fail, and I wanna talk about that. That’s why imma just go ahead and bring out my first guest. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… VEENA ADAMS!!
( Not even the drunks in the crowd utter a cheer as “Me” by Taylor Swift featuring Brenden Urie begins to play. In fact, the boos Veena receives might be the loudest ever and as the blonde walks out onto the stage, she smiles sweetly. As always, Veena soaks up the reaction she gets and trolls the crowd, begging them to be even louder. On her way up the ring steps, Veena is handed a spare microphone. )
Talib Bari: Welcome to ‘Cloth Talk!’
Veena Adams: Trust me, the pleasure is all yours.
Talib Bari: So I gotta ask, did you really put together the Voltage War Games team in hopes they would walk their pretty little asses into that match and lose??
( Veena casually shrugs her shoulders. )
Veena Adams: A lot of things went into my decision when it came to putting together a War Games team, but if those three sluts happen to humiliate themselves in the match by shitting the bed and putting on the worst performance in the history of the sport, then oh well. I wouldn’t even remotely be surprised because when the pressure is on, these little cunts have a tendency to crumble. I know they want to whine and cry, and say they’re being set up to fail, and who knows? Maybe they are, because they’re inferior. That being said, they’re the ones who carry themselves with a disgusting air of undeserved arrogance, and act like this place owes them opportunities afforded to superior male talent, and people who are just generally better than they are. So if those whores actually put their hatred for me aside, and look at this match, they would see that I actually did them a favor.
Talib Bari: How so?
Veena Adams: I put them in this match so they could flex their little baby dicks and pretend to be something other than what they really are. They’ve got a golden chance to show the world that they can actually hang with world champions and future world champions, although Raven already stunk up Showdown last night. Granted, I never in a million years believed she could actually beat Jamie O’Hara and TLA in a match, but whatever. She had her chance, and she sucked as per usual. As far as Camille’s lucky break on Dynasty, I think the crowd reaction goes without saying. She was NEVER favored to win that match. The used toilet of Dynasty, Serena Bennett, was. But honestly, can we even count Ahren Fournier as worthy male competition? He’s the bitch of the Showdown team anyway, with a vagina of his own, slapped with the stigma of having my uncle’s cum receptacle carry him, and that’s really embarrassing. So I guess when Camille faced a glorified urinal of a woman and Ahren, it was inevitable she would have SOME measure of success. But Raven did what Raven does, and that is fail when it counts, and there’s no doubt in my mind that Andrea won’t do the same tonight. She has no fucking chance of defeating men like Darkane and Chris Elite, and when you take all of that into consideration, take a wild guess about what is going to happen at War Games. They’re going to lose, and that’s not my problem.
Talib Bari: So you really sayin’ that you think they’re gunna lose, in a match where brand pride is on the line, as well as bragging rights? Why do this? Why not just pick a team that you believe could win the match?
Veena Adams: Because I honestly don’t give a fuck about the match. There is one match at Territorial Invasion that I care about and that’s Charlie Marr versus Rex McAllister for the EAW World Championship. Once Charlie disposes of Rex, and finally rids Voltage of that disgusting cancer, we can finally do what we set out to do, and that was mold Voltage into our image, and that means ring rats compete in their own matches against one another.
( Talib goes to reply, but much to the crowd’s delight, ‘Mark My Words’ by Dollskin begins to play. The crowd erupts as Raven Roberts walks out, followed by her War Games teammates, Ms. Extreme and Andrea Valentine. Ms. Extreme and Raven are dressed in street clothes, while Andrea is in her gear, and all three begin to make their way to the ring. Veena wisely retreats to the outside of the ring, once Team Voltage gets inside. All three have been given microphones. )
Raven Roberts: Doing what you do best, which is running away when people actually come out and step up to you. Last week proved what a spineless, gutless coward that you are, and believe me, one of these days you are going to find yourself locked in the Aviary and unable to get out. No verbal submission is going to make release the hold until I’m sure you are broken and left in a heap right there in the middle of the ring.
( On the outside, Veena rolls her eyes. )
Veena Adams: Give me a break. I saw the bigger picture, and future opportunities for myself, and I made the executive decision to get the hell out of the ring. You never really got the satisfaction of beating me last week, and you certainly didn’t get the better of Charlie because someone like you could literally never. So while it may show on paper, that yourself and your master won the match, there will always be controversy around the win because you didn’t pin either of us or make us physically submit. That being said, I get how important moral victories are to you. That’s all you really have going for you, and I suppose the same could be said for the bottled blonde, and the ugly Ava. The fact of the matter is, the three of you represent everything that is wrong with EAW, and everything that needs to be fixed, and exposing you for the inferior little assholes you actually are will be what the actual definition of what poetic justice is.
Ms. Extreme: No one is buying a fucking thing you are saying because if there is anyone out here right now that’s a dumb cunt it’s you. You are no better than any other piece of trash in this company, and talk is real fuckin’ cheap when you’re spewing shit to three women who know how to back up every fucking thing they say. You wanna cut down Raven for not getting the job done last night? How about you acknowledge the fact that neither Jamie nor TLA could put her away? Jamie couldn’t pin Raven, so he went after the weaker competitor and that’s the only damn reason he won the match. Raven did everything she could to win, just like I did on Dynasty, and just like Andrea will tonight. And once we get to Territorial Invasion and get inside that structure with those other two teams, we are going to once again do whatever the hell it takes to win. None of us have ever claimed to perfect, or even model fucking employees. In fact, it’s taking everything inside of me not to get out of this ring and beat your skinny ass, and drown you in the Gulf of Mexico right now. But leaving you alive, so you can watch War Games, and watch us win the match, is going to be enough of a punishment for you.
( Veena practically rolls her eyes to the back of her head. She raises the microphone up to reply, but she is quickly cut off by Andrea. )
Andrea Valentine: You’ve literally done enough talking, and every time you open your mouth you continue to dig your own grave deeper. Trust me, Veena. The three of us are really ready to prove your ass wrong come Territorial Invasion, and beyond. We are well aware that when we do win and come back to Voltage, you are going to do everything in your power to make sure we pay for being successful. That’s why we have decided to end you, and make you regret ever picking this fight with us, and trust me. You’re not going to win.
Raven Roberts: We are more than prepared for Showdown and Dynasty come Territorial Invasion because what Camille said was exactly right. The great Jamie O’Hara wasn’t capable of putting me away. The so-called future world champion, TLA, couldn’t get the job done. I was at my best last night, and when I’m at my best, no one can touch me. I’m bringing my best to War Games and I will surpass it because I know that any little success I have in that match is going to be a slap to your ugly little face.
Ms. Extreme: And Andrea and I know that as well. That’s why we’re going to be prepared, and why Showdown and Dynasty aren’t going to have a damn thing for us. Three of us standing here have gone into wars before, willing to bleed and die, and we have always gotten right back up and come back for more.
Andrea Valentine: That’s not going to change once we are locked inside of War Games, or tonight for that matter. I’m happy to show Darkane and Chris Elite what I’m really about because I’m so much more than what either of them decided to give me credit for this week. I plan on winning tonight, defending my Specialists Championships against Helena Merriman next week, and then heading to War Games to fight beside these two women, and win yet another match people tell us we can’t win. That will be the biggest fuck you each of us can give you, Veena, and we’re going to deliver that to you with smiles on our faces.
Veena Adams: This is cute, honestly it is. But we all know what’s going to happen. You three are going to get overwhelmed, crack under the pressure of the match, and end up getting embarrassed.
( While Veena is talking, the crowd starts to buzz. Consuela Rose Ava has walked out and she is carrying a large pan of what appears to be some kind of food item from catering. )
Veena Adams: You don’t have the fucking talent to get inside the ring with the men you’re facing from the other brands. Andrea, you are nothing more than some wannabe Instagram whore who should be on her knees, sucking dick of a Saudi royalty while they piss on you and use your face to clean their dicks on. Raven, you should be strung out somewhere in a ditch, half dead, and being used a fuck toy for toothless, flea invested homeless men and their nasty ass dogs. Camille, you should be on your knees somewhere using your mouth for the greater good, because you damn sure do yourself no favors when you open it to speak. You should have a cock in that hole at all fucking times, beause someone like you should just get shipped to the nearest sex trafficker and sold to a fucking breeding farm so you can pump out nasty little sex slaves like your fat, ugly mother Car- AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!?!!?!?!
( Consuela, who’s heard enough, has dumped what appears to be a large amount of baked beans over the top of Veena’s head. )
Consuela Rose Ava (Off Mic): Put me in catering, and I’ll make the most of it.
( “We Appreciate Power” by Grimes hits, as Consuela hits the ring and joins her sister, and partners-in-crime. The four women raises each other hands in the air as Veena lets out of a string of obscenities that can be heard all the way over in Texas. Voltage fades to its first commercial break of the evening. )
( Commercial break for Harrah’s Gulf Coast featuring The Woogieman. He is seen walking around with PETA reps, wining and dining them, and making passionate speeches about animal rights. Woogie is also seen cutting into a big, juicy steak at one of the restaurants inside Harrah’s. Casinos in the heart of the Bible belt. We stan hypocrisy. )
( Voltage returns and Bella smiles into the camera. )
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A DIVIDE AND CONQUER QUALIFYING MATCH AND IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
( ‘Mob Ties’ by Drake hits as Cepheus St. Claire walks out to the stage accompanied by Lonnie Delmonty while the crowd begins booing as loud as they can. He walks down the ramp, not waiting for his partner before ‘Breakin’ Outta H*ll’ by AIrbourne hits, and Shortfuse PAKA walks down to the ring while the crowd begins to cheer. )
Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring.. The team of Shortfuse PAKA, and Cepheus St. Claire!
James Peters: Here we have another qualifier for the upcoming Divide and Conquer match at Territorial Invasion! Now, I’ve got to ask, do you believe this team is gonna work? I mean, Shortfuse PAKA has a no nonsense attitude, meanwhile Cepheus would do whatever he must to win. If you ask me, I don’t think this team could go too far.
Rich Russillo: Come on, really? Just because a team has a few differences you think they can’t win? They have enough talent to make up for however they may feel about each other. I know that they could win this.
( ‘Garou’s Theme (Instrumental)’ by Makoto Miyazaki then hits and the crowd becomes mixed, mostly full of boos as Blade begins walking down the ramp. In the meantime, the crowd switches back to cheering due to ‘The Next Movement’ by the Roots playing, which is followed by Damian Butler the Third. )
Bella Braxton: And their opponents… The team of Blade, and Damian Butler the Third!
James Peters: Now this team, I have to admit may have a harder time in this match. Not only may they not see eye to eye, but the two are both relatively new still, neither of them have the experience that Cepheus or PAKA do.
Rich Russillo: I mean, we’ve seen surprises in the past tons of times so you never really know for sure. I think Cepheus and PAKA will win, but I won’t be too surprised if we do see an upset.
James Peters: But you just said..
Rich Russillo: Anyways let’s start the match
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
James Peters: And this match is now underway! It looks like Cepheus St. Claire will be starting this match off against Blade, but Cepheus doesn’t seem impressed whatsoever as he actually has a smile on his face! Cepheus now walking towards Blade- SPINNING SOLE KICK BY BLADE, TAKING CEPHEUS TO A KNEE! BLADE NOW RUNNING THE ROPES, AND THERE’S A JUMPING LARIAT JUST AS CEPHEUS WAS BEGINNING TO GET BACK UP! Cepheus now quickly getting to his feet, but Blade is able to connect with another sole kick before nailing Cepheus with an uppercut! Cepheus seemed to underestimate Blade early on and now it seems like he’s gonna pay for it! Blade now stomping away at Cepheus in the corner, and it looks like St. Claire is down and out!
Rich Russillo: Cepheus now rolling out of the ring, walking over towards Lonnie Delmonty, meanwhile it looks like Blade is just waiting inside the ring, most likely waiting for the right moment to strike! Cepheus now is slowly climbing into the ring, AND NOW HE CHARGES AT BLADE BUT BLADE IS ABLE TO DUCK THAT LARIAT ATTEMPT, AND THERE’S A SUPERKICK BY THE HUNTER- WAIT, NO! I WAS WRONG, CEPHEUS CAUGHT BLADE’S FOOT, AND YOU CAN SEE THE GRIN ON HIS FACE, ALMOST AS IF HE KNEW WHAT WAS COMING! CEPHEUS NOW FLIPPING BLADE OVER, BUT BLADE LANDS ON HIS FEET- AND THERE’S A LARIAT, THIS TIME CONNECTING AS CEPHEUS GOES FOR THE FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!
James Peters: Quick kick out by Blade! Cepheus now with a grounded headlock, and it seems Blade is struggling as Damian Butler is trying to reach his hand out for the tag! Blade now had managed to pull himself onto one foot, and now he finally manages to push Cepheus into the ropes, causing him to release the hold while bouncing off of them! Blade now sliding under Cepheus just as he bounced off the opposite pair of ropes, AND THERE’S A DROPKICK BY BLADE! Blade now looking over at Damian, but it seems like he’s not ready to tag him in just yet as he insteads goes back towards Cepheus, who once again has rolled out of the ring! Blade now rolling out of the ring, walking over towards Cepheus-
Rich Russillo: CEPHEUS JUST THREW SAND IN BLADE’S FACE! IT LOOKS LIKE BLADE WAS DISTRACTED BY THAT SAND, AND NOW CEPHEUS IS TAKING CLEAR ADVANTAGE AS HE JUST RAMMED BLADE RIGHT INTO THE APRON! CEPHEUS NOW HAS ROLLED BLADE INTO THE RING, AND NOW HE’S WAITING IN THE CORNER AS BLADE BEGINS TO GET TO BOTH KNEES! CEPHEUS NOW CHARGING IN, RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE! Cepheus has managed to capitalize off of that distraction, but it looks like Shortfuse PAKA now wants into this match!
James Peters: Well, it looks like that’s what he’s gonna get, because there’s the tag by Cepheus! Shortfuse PAKA is now in this match and he’s going right after Blade! PAKA now is stomping all over Blade, causing the Hunter to roll out of the ring to try and get away from the attack! PAKA now charging after Blade- DROP TOE HOLD! BLADE JUST HIT A DROP TOE HOLD ON PAKA JUST AS HE WAS CHARGING TOWARDS HIM, AND NOW WHAT’S HE DOING!? BLADE IS GRABBING PAKA BY THE ARMS, PULLING HIM UP, AND HE JUST STOMPED HIS FACE INTO THE SAND!! BLADE NOW IS ROLLING PAKA INTO THE RING, CAN HE EVEN SEE RIGHT NOW?
Rich Russillo: BLADE NOW IS LIFTING PAKA UP, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GONNA PUT HIM AWAY! DISCORD- WAIT NO!! PAKA IS STILL ON HIS FEET, AND HE’S CHARGING INTO THE CORNER! PAKA JUST RAMMED BLADE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!! BLADE IS DOWN BUT PAKA STILL CAN’T CAPITALIZE WITH THE SAND IN HIS FACE! BLADE IS CRAWLING TOWARDS HIS CORNER, CAN HE MAKE THE TAG!? PAKA IS WIPING THE SAND OUT OF HIS FACE STILL, BLADE MIGHT MAKE THE TAG! HE DOES IT!! BLADE GOT THE TAG, DAMIAN BUTLER IS IN!!
James Peters: DAMIAN IS LEGAL AND HE’S GOING RIGHT AFTER PAKA! RUNNING DROPKICK BY DAMIAN, CAUSING PAKA TO STUMBLE INTO HIS OWN CORNER! DAMIAN NOW CHARING INTO THE CORNER, AND THERE’S A FOREARM SMASH!! DAMIAN NOW RUNNING THE ROPES AS PAKA STUMBLES OUT OF THE CORNER, AND THERE’S A SLINGBLADE BY DAMIAN!! PAKA IS DOWN, AND THERE’S THE COVER BY DAMIAN, THIS ONE MAY BE OVER ALREADY!!
James Peters: NO!! PAKA KICKED OUT!! This match definitely isn’t over yet, but Damian is still in control! Damian now with a rear chinlock on PAKA, seemingly trying to test him out and see if this will be enough to wear him down. PAKA is struggling right now surprisingly, although it’s no wonder after what has happened in the past few minutes.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, but nonetheless it looks like PAKA is able to get to one foot, and now he drives his elbow into Damian’s midsection! PAKA now grabbing Damian by the arm, SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE- WAIT NO! DAMIAN DUCKED IT! GERMAN SUPLEX BY DAMIAN, BUT PAKA QUICKLY MANAGES TO GET TO HIS FEET! LARIAT BY PAKA- WAIT NO! DAMIAN DODGES THAT AS WELL, AND NOW HE GRABS PAKA! STO!! DAMIAN IS ON FIRE RIGHT NOW! DAMIAN NOW BACKING INTO THE CORNER, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S WAITING FOR PAKA TO GET TO HIS FEET! HE MAY BE SIGNALLING FOR THE END HERE!!
James Peters: PAKA is slowly getting to his feet, and clearly he doesn’t even know where he is! DAMIAN NOW CHARGING IN- RIGHT INTO A CLOTHESLINE!! PAKA JUST NAILED DAMIAN WITH A CLOTHESLINE!! DAMIAN WAS JUST TURNED INSIDE OUT WITH THAT, JUST AS HE WAS CHARGING TOWARDS PAKA! PAKA NOW PICKING DAMIAN UP, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GOING FOR… A POWERBOMB!! WHAT A POWERBOMB BY PAKA!! DAMIAN IS LIFELESS RIGHT NOW!! PAKA NOW GOING FOR THE COVER AND THIS TIME I BELIEVE THE MATCH MAY ACTUALLY BE OVER!!
Rich Russillo: NO!! DAMIAN GOT HIS SHOULDER UP!! DAMIAN GOT HIS SHOULDER UP!! DAMIAN MANAGED TO SURVIVE AFTER THAT HUGE POWERBOMB AND YOU CAN SEE THAT PAKA IS FURIOUS!! I CAN’T BELIEVE MY EYES, AND IT’S APPARENT THAT SHORTFUSE PAKA CAN’T EITHER!! PAKA NOW BACKING UP INTO THE CORNER, AND I THINK HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THIS MATCH IS OVER AS HE BEGINS WAITING FOR DAMIAN TO GET BACK UP!
James Peters: It’s probably gonna take a little while for Damian to get back up, but it doesn’t seem like PAKA minds as he- WAIT! WHAT!? CEPHEUS JUST TAGGED HIMSELF IN!! PAKA CAN’T BELIEVE IT, CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE JUST TAGGED HIMSELF INTO THE MATCH, AND NOW THE REFEREE IS TELLING PAKA TO EXIT THE RING! DAMIAN HAS GOTTEN BACK TO HIS FEET- AND CEPHEUS JUST LOW BLOWED HIM!! CEPHEUS JUST HIT A LOW BLOW WHILE THE REFEREE WAS DISTRACTED AND THAT MAY HAVE BEEN HIS PLAN THE WHOLE TIME AS HE NOW GOES FOR THE COVER ON DAMIAN!
Rich Russillo: WAIT! BLADE JUST BROKE IT UP!! BLADE JUST STOMPED ONTO THE BACK OF CEPHEUS, AND THE REFEREE NOW IS YELLING AT BLADE AND WARNING HIM NOT TO BREAK THE PIN UP AGAIN, BUT HE MAY HAVE JUST SAVED THE MATCH HERE AS CEPHEUS NEARLY WON OFF THAT LOW BLOW!
James Peters: It looks like Blade might finally be exiting the ring now- WAIT NO! BLADE JUST GRABBED CEPHEUS AND THREW HIM OUTSIDE OF THE RING, AND NOW HE’S RUNNING THE ROPES! SUICIDE DIVE TO CEPHEUS!! BLADE NOW ROLLING CEPHEUS BACK INTO THE RING, AND NOW HE’S BACK ON THE APRON, AND HE CLEARLY WANTS TO BE TAGGED IN! DAMIAN IS CRAWLING TOWARDS BLADE, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GONNA MAKE IT! CEPHEUS IS BEGINNING TO GET BACK UP, BUT IT’S TOO LATE! BLADE HAS BEEN TAGGED IN, AND HE IMMEDIATELY FLOORS CEPHEUS WITH A RUNNING FRONT DROPKICK!
Rich Russillo: BLADE NOW RUNNING THE ROPES AS CEPHEUS BEGINS TO GET BACK UP, AND THERE’S A FOREARM SMASH! CEPHEUS NOW IS ABLE TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, AND HE’S CHARGING RIGHT AT BLADE- BUT THERE’S A SPINEBUSTER!!! BLADE CALLS THAT THE WRATH!! BLADE IS GOING FOR THE COVER NOW, IS THIS ENOUGH TO PUT AWAY CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE!?
Rich Russillo: WHAT!? NO, YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS! LONNIE JUST PULLED THE REFEREE OUT OF THE RING, JUST BEFORE BLADE WAS ABLE TO GET THE PIN! BLADE IS FURIOUS, HE JUST HAD THE MATCH WON!! BLADE NOW- WAIT! HE’S RUNNING THE ROPES!! SUICIDE DIVE TO LONNIE DELMONTY!! BLADE JUST TOOK OUT LONNIE DELMONTY, JUST WHEN IT LOOKED LIKE THE REFEREE WAS GOING TO CALL OFF THE MATCH!
James Peters: Blade now entering the ring once again as he begins to approach Cepheus St. Claire- SMALL PACKAGE!! CEPHEUS WITH A SMALL PACKAGE ROLL UP!! CEPHEUS IS GONNA STEAL THE MATCH FOR HIS TEAM!
James Peters: NO! IT’S NOT OVER! BLADE KICKED OUT, AND NOW HE’S BACKING UP INTO HIS CORNER AS DAMIAN TAGS HIMSELF IN! DAMIAN IS BACK IN THE MATCH AND HE IMMEDIATELY CHARGES TOWARDS CEPHEUS! LARIAT- NO! CEPHEUS DUCKS IT! SHADY ENDING- WAIT NO! DAMIAN PUSHED CEPHEUS INTO THE ROPES! SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP BY DAMIAN!
James Peters: QUICK KICK OUT AS BOTH MEN GET BACK TO THEIR FEET! SHADY ENDING BY CEPHEUS!! IT CONNECTS THIS TIME!! BLADE HAS ENTERED THE RING BUT SO HAS PAKA, AND PAKA JUST SENT BLADE OVER THE TOP ROPE!! THIS COULD BE IT, THE COVER NOW BY CEPHEUS ST. CLAIRE!!
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Bella Braxton: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS…. SHORTFUSE PAKA AND CEPHEUS ST. CLAAAAAIIIRRREEE!!!!!
James Peters: Wow! They did it! Shortfuse PAKA and Cepheus St. Claire are moving on to the Divide and Conquer match! I thought these two wouldn’t do too well with their contrasting styles but they worked just fine, and now these two have a great opportunity coming up at Territorial Invasion!
Rich Russillo: Yeah, other than Cepheus tagging himself in the two did just fine, and even then it seemed like Cepheus tagged himself in to get an advantage over Damian! That was a great showing and if they keep it up these two could do great at Territorial Invasion!
( ‘Mob Ties’ plays as Cepheus gets to his feet with a smile on his face. The referee raises his hand, before doing the same to PAKA, who still has a focused look on his face. On the other hand, Blade looks furious at the result of the match, and after a few seconds walks into the ring as Damian Butler gets to his feet. )
Blade (Off Mic): What was that? We could’ve won, you couldn’t kick out?
Damian Butler (Off Mic): You weren’t much help either you know. Where were you when I needed you?
James Peters: Uh oh. The two now are trading words towards each other, and it looks like they’re beginning to shove each other as well. Things are looking bad for the two.
Rich Russillo: Looks like they’re not taking the loss very well. I guess I can’t blame them too much but I don’t think this is how they should settle this.
( After trading words, Blade walks out of the ring, bumping into Damian’s shoulder, causing Damian to look at Blade walk out with a frustrated look on his face. )
( The scene at ringside fades out and cuts to Matt Daniels. Matt is seen on his phone in the “backstage” area, seemingly finishing up a call when Korey Gaines and Frankie Paradise walk up to him, both with serious looks on their faces. Matt takes a second to finish his call, before addressing the two. )
Matt Daniels: Oh, hey guys. Can I help you with anything?
Korey Gaines: Can you help us with anything? Is that really what you’re asking after what’s been going on? You should know by now why we’re here, this really shouldn’t be a surprise to you man.
Frankie Paradise: Yeah.. You know you’ve got to do something about Eric Havoc and Dynasty, right? You’re in charge of this show, you can’t just let outsiders come in and tear everything apart, we’ve got to fight back, or get a chance at revenge, or something, anything.
Matt Daniels: Oh, so that’s what this is about. I guess I should’ve expected that.
Korey Gaines: Seriously, the Red Brand has just been running wild both on Showdown, as well as your own brand Voltage, and all you’re gonna do is go over to StarrStan and lecture him?
Frankie Paradise: That’s not even close to enough. Simply telling StarrStan to make them stop, or letting him off on a meaningless warning isn’t going to do anything, we need to take action.
Matt Daniels: Look. To be quite honest with you guys, I couldn’t care less about Eric Havoc, his group, or anything you’ve said so far. I’ve got much bigger things to deal with than a group of attention seekers running wild, I seriously don’t have the time for this.
( Matt begins to turn to them to take another phone call, when Frankie interrupts him, still persistent on wanting to take action against Eric Havoc and Dynasty. )
Frankie Paradise: Seriously. Jenny Punk and Showdown took action. Eric and his T.R.U.E Initiative or whatever attacked their show, and what’d they do? They fought back. Come on man, are you seriously saying you’re not willing to fight back against people trying to ruin your show?
Korey Gaines: I don’t understand it at all. Are you actually willing to allow Dynasty to harm the Elitists on YOUR show, and then not do anything about it? If it were one of us in charge, I can guarantee that we wouldn’t be having the problems that we currently do, because we’re willing to actually fight back-
Matt Daniels: Alright, you know what? Fine. You really want a shot at Eric and his group of friends that bad?
Frankie Paradise & Korey Gaines: Yes.
Matt Daniels: Then surely you should be happy with this. I’ll let you two join Lance Blackfyre, Santo Muerte, and Viktor Stone to go up against Eric Havoc and his team at Territorial Invasion. Are you happy with that, or is there anything else you need?
Korey Gaines: I think that’s perfect man. Thanks.
Frankie Paradise: Yeah, it sounds great. Can’t wait to get some payback.
Matt Daniels: Glad I could help you then.
( Korey Gaines and Frankie Paradise then walk off, seemingly satisfied as Matt Daniels watches on, who looks clearly stressed before getting back to work as the camera to break. )
( Commercial break for the Palace Casino in Biloxi featuring Cepheus St. Claire and Dr. Lonnie Delmonty playing blackjack. Cepheus is clearly cheating, but winning big, and the dealer actually looks shook. Cheating and black jack, featured at any casino in Biloxi because that’s the Bible belt for you. )
( Voltage returns to the ring area. The camera cuts to a man in a formal suit standing in the middle of the ring. A mat has been laid down on the canvas of the ring and there are multiple people sitting on chairs in the ring. There is a nice podium in the center of the ring with an emblem emblazoned on it that says “PETA.” Next to the podium is a massive award that reads “PETA Representative of the Month” on it. The silence is quickly broken by “If Ya Smell” by Adam Massacre blasting across the speakers with massive cheers as Woogieman comes out. He is not in attire, instead he comes out shirtless with jeans along with a gold belt and sunglasses. He looks around with an accomplished look as he walks to the ring. )
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen please welcome, THE WOOGIEMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
( The Woogieman enters the ring and is handed a mic as the PETA representatives applaud around him. The main PETA representative, Rachelle Owen, then walks up to Woogieman to speak. )
Rachelle Owen: Woogieman thank you for coming out tonight for this important event, as we’ve come to present you with the “PETA Representative Of The Month” award.
Rachelle Owen: Ever since joining PETA as a representative we, as a shareholder, have been heavily boosted thanks to you and for that we’d like to present you with said award tonight to thank you for all you’ve done for PETA and animals around the world!
( The crowd cheers even more as Woogieman is handed the trophy, he places it back down before speaking again. )
The Woogieman: Rachelle thank you for this opportunity to show that I truly care for all animals, wildlife, sea creatures, and other things I can’t remember. I’m honored to win this award coming from inside and outside the ring. This shows that animal cruelty is not fun. I still have scars from my last battle because of them, and for that I’d like to make a change. Animals, people, and PETA have seen what my goal is and have reached out to help me achieve it. And for that, I’d like to thank y’all for what you’ve done, thank you…
( The crowd cheers again as Woogieman is on the verge of tears as he takes his award and raises it in the air. He goes to the top rope and raises it up before the cheers are broken by loud yelling. )
???: WOOGIEMAN DOESN’T DESERVE THIS! WOOGIEMAN DOESN’T DESERVE THIS!
( A protestor from the church that was protesting Voltage earlier hops the barricade and yells to the ring. )
Protestor: Giving this award to somebody that works for a violent company! This is bullcrap! FREAK THE WOOGIEMAN!!!
( The crowd boos as the Woogieman looks in confusion in the ring. )
The Woogieman: What is your name?
The Woogieman: SHUT THE FUCK UP! YOU DON’T DESERVE THE WOOGIEMAN’S SPOTLIGHT! If you truly disagree with this decision maybe you should man up and fight me!
( The crowd cheers as the man shrugs and takes off his shirt. )
Protestor: Bring it, I’m not afraid!
The Woogieman: Better yet let’s make it a Biloxi Beach Match!
Protester: A what?
The Woogieman: In order to win you have to throw your opponent in the water.
Protestor: :oh: Ok then.
( The crew quickly removes the mat, podium, and chairs as the PETA representatives scramble to the outside of the ring. Woogieman and the Protester face off as a Ref quickly rolls into the ring. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Rich Russillo: Oh my god the GOAT is facing the reason Voltage is on the beach tonight!
James Peters: What a wonderful moment indeed putting these people in place. The man is quickly running to Woogieman! HE PUNCHES HIM RIGHT IN THE FACE! The Woogieman doesn’t look happy as he grabs him! WOOGIEMAN THROWING HIM OUT OF THE RING WITH EASE!
Rich Russillo: Woogieman wastes no time getting to the point in this match as he grabs the Protestor by the hair! WOOGIE THROWING HIM OVER THE BARRICADE! Woogieman going out- THE PROTESTOR PUNCHES HIM IN THE FACE! Woogie stunned as the Protestor pulls him over the barricade.
James Peters: Woogie stumbles up as the Protestor is dragging him closer to the ocean as the many crowd members follow. The Protestor turning him around- WOOGIE THROWING SAND INTO HIS EYES! HE’S BLIND! WOOGIE GRABBING HIM! SPINEBUSTER! WOOGIEMAN GOING UP I THINK HE’S LOOKING FOR THE PEOPLE’S ELBOW! HE THROWS HIS ELBOW PAD INTO THE OCEAN AND KICKS SAND INTO THE FACE OF THE PROTESTOR!
Rich Russillo: More plastic in the ocean :mjcry:
James Peters: That’s not plastic but ok. Woogieman bouncing off invisible ropes! THE PEOPLE’S ELBOW! SAND FLYING EVERYWHERE AS WOOGIEMAN BRINGS HIM UP! THE BOTTOM INTO THE OCEAN!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “If Ya Smell” plays as the crowd jumps off their feet and the Woogieman quickly gets up. The ref gives him his award as the Woogieman sheds a tear and raises it high in the air. The cheering quiets down as the crowd begins to tear up as well. )
Bella Braxton: He-Here is you-your winner… THE W-WOOGIEMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *sniffle*
James Peters: :mjcry: What a wonderful moment for everyone in attendance as the Woogieman comes out strong and fights for Voltage’s integrity!
Rich Russillo: :mjcry: THIS- THIS MAN IS A NATIONAL HERO! HE NEEDS MORE THAN A PETA AWARD! HE NEEDS A PRESIDENTIAL AWARD! :goat: I love him so much.
James Peters: Me too, :kellycry: me too…
( The last shot is of Woogieman raising the award in the air again as the fans throw sand in the air as celebration. The crowd is now sobbing to death because of their GOAT as Voltage cuts to a brief commercial break. )
( Commercial break for the Golden Nugget Biloxi featuring Kai Zolomon and a host of various women. Kai is seen playing roulette while his various whores blow on the dice before he throws him, because this is the Bible belt, and exactly the way you are supposed to act in God’s country. )
( Voltage returns, and Bella steps forward, ready to announce the participants for the next match. )
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
( An acoustic version of “Headstrong” by Trapt begins to blast from the production truck speakers. The rowdy crowd greets Shawn Sturgis with a mixed reaction as he begins to make his way to the ring. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM FONTANA, CALIFORNIA… WEIGHING IN AT 199 POUNDS… PLEASE WELCOME, ‘THE FRESH PRINCE OF MID-AIR’ SHAWN STURGIS!!!
Rich Russillo: Last week on Voltage, Shawn Sturgis finally broke through against the Big Boogie Bhampion, The Woogieman. Tonight he looks to continue his winning ways against another relatively new Voltage Elitist in Sarah Price.
James Peters: It had to feel good for Shawn to finally get that monkey off his back and put a mark in the win column. He will definitely have his hands full tonight though because Sarah isn’t going to back down from him.
( Shawn slides inside the ring and his music fades out. “Land of the Innocent” by Feathers begins to play and the crowd starts to cheer. An energetic Sarah Price comes bouncing out and begins to head to the ring. )
Rich Russillo: While Sturgis got a win last week, Sarah suffered a rather controversial loss in her match against Blade. Sarah was setting up for a splash on Blade, but he moved at the last minute which caused Sarah to hit the referee.
James Peters: Honestly, the fact the referee disqualified Sarah was bullshit. She didn’t intentionally land on him, and these officials know what they’re signing up for when they step into the ring. Accidents happen and Sarah should not have lost that match like that last week.
( If last week has any lingering effect on Sarah, she’s not showing it. She gets into the ring and immediately gets set for the match. )
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Rich Russillo: For the second week in a row, Sarah Price finds herself outmatched in the strength and size departments. However she’s got her fists up and she’s ready to go! I know Sarah is ready for redemption here tonight! Sarah and Shawn lock up up and it’s Sarah who manages to grab Shawn in a headlock! She tightens her grip, and tries to wrestle him down to the mat, but Shawn doesn’t budge. Sarah tries again to bring him down to the mat, but Shawn remains stagnant. He punches Sarah in the stomach, lifts her up in the air, and brings her down with an atomic drop! Sarah grabs her vag and Shawn pushes her in the corner!
James Peters: Sarah turns around just as Shawn runs at her, and she quickly darts out of the way! Shawn stops his momentum before he crashes into the turnbuckles and both competitors stare at one another! Sarah looks a little upset about how the match has started, but Shawn’s smirking. He motions for Sarah to come at him, and the two lock up again! Sarah manages to grab Shawn in a wristlock and begins working over the wrist! Shawn grabs for his arm, but Sarah continues to hold on tightly. Shawn reaches out with his free hand and grabs Sarah by the hair! He jerks her towards him, lifts her up in the hair, and slams her down to the mat with a scoop slam!
Rich Russillo: Sarah quickly picks herself up off the mat and goes for Shawn, but he grabs her up, throws her over his shoulder, and runs towards the turnbuckles! Sarah wiggles out of his clutches and drops to the ground! Shawn quickly turns around and Sarah springs up, catching him with a dropkick to the chest! Shawn is forced back into the corner and Sarah rushes towards him! Shawn lifts her up and dumps her onto the apron! Shawn looks for a clothesline but Sarah lands a kick against Shawn’s temple! Shawn stumbles back and Sarah slips between the ropes catching him in the gut with a shoulder! Sarah jumps to the top rope… SPRINGBOARD LEGDROP DDT! SARAH WITH A COVER!
James Peters: Shawn kicks out!
Rich Russillo: Sarah Price just got real close to getting her first victory here in EAW and I know that would have helped put the nightmare that was last week behind her! Sarah gets back to her feet and goes to grab Shawn, but he wisely rolls to the outside of the ring to try and gather his bearings! Sarah doesn’t want to let the momentum go though! Sarah backs up and she takes off running! SUICIDE DIVE THROUGH THE ROPES!
James Peters: BUT SHAWN STURGIS CATCHES HER!
Rich Russillo: BUT SARAH WRAPS HER ARM AROUND HIS NECK AND SPIKES HIM INTO THE SAND WITH A DDT!
James Peters: This crowd erupts for Sarah and she smiles at them, all the while Shawn is grabbing the skirt of the ring and pulling himself up.
Rich Russillo: Sarah needs to get her head back into the match because Shawn just pulled himself back into the ring!
James Peters: Sarah must have heard you Rich, because she is back on the apron now and she is going to the top rope! Sarah is looking to take a risk here, and she gets set! FLYING CROSSBODY… BUT SHAWN CATCHES HER! SHAWN BRINGS SARAH DOWN BACK FIRST ACROSS HIS KNEE!
Rich Russillo: That was a nasty backbreaker!
James Peters: Sarah rolls to the ropes, gripping her lower back, but Shawn is back up. He heads for Sarah as she pulls herself into the corner! Shawn grabs Sarah by the ankles and lifts her up… SLAMMING HER INTO THE MAT! Sarah lets out a cry and Shawn quickly begins putting the boots to her back! He’s stomping away on her, and the referee has to intervene, because Sarah does have her hand on the rope. Shawn steps back, and that gives Sarah a chance to pull herself back into the corner! Shawn goes right back at her, grabbing Sarah’s legs again!
Rich Russillo: Sarah tries to kick him back, but Shawn lifts her in the air again AND DROPS HER BACK FIRST ACROSS HIS KNEE! SHAWN QUICKLY GOES FOR A COVER!
James Peters: Sarah kicks out!
Rich Russillo: Shawn shakes his head, but gets back to his feet. He slowly pulls Sarah up by the hair but wait! Sarah nails Shawn with a punch the chest! She catches him with another! AND ANOTHER! Sarah hammering away on Shawn, trying to get free, switching her punches to the face now! Sarah goes for a final punch, but Shawn is able to block the shot! He headbutts Sarah and sends her into the corner! Shawn flies forward but Sarah leaps over him and lands on her feet! Shawn turns around and goes for a clothesline, but Sarah with a back handspring to get out of the way! That was clever! Sarah goes for a clothesline of her own, but Shawn is able to duck! Shawn looks to knock her down but Sarah into a backbend! She avoids being taken down and kicks her feet up! She’s got Shawn in a headscissors and she brings him down to the mat! Sarah quickly goes for the cover, but Shawn is kicking out before the referee can even get into position! Sarah is on top of him now and throwing forearm shots at him with everything she has left in the tank! Sarah Price is showing so much heart tonight!
James Peters: Shawn finally muscles her off and rolls up to his knees! Sarah uses the ropes to launch herself at Shawn, and she looks to hit him with a basement style dropkick! Shawn is able to evade her, and get back up, while Sarah has rolled to the apron of the ring. She uses the ropes to pull herself up, but there is Shawn! He grabs her by the head and snaps her throat first across the ropes! Sarah tumbles into the sand, and Shawn Sturgis has finally stopped Sarah’s momentum!
Rich Russillo: Shawn quickly climbs to the top rope, and is looking to go high risk now! He’s got a nice 450 Splash in his arsenal, and I’m curious to see if he breaks it out right here!
James Peters: Shawn gets himself into position and Rich! I definitely think Shawn is going to go for ‘Look No Hands’!
Rich Russillo: SHAWN FLIES! Shawn goes for the 450 splash BUT SARAH MOVES! SHAWN SLAMS INTO THE SAND!!!
James Peters: This crowd is urging Sarah Price to get back to her feet and get Shawn Sturgis back into the ring. The referee has started the count, but ‘The Guardian Angel’ is using the energy from the crowd to get herself back up! She’s made her way over to Shawn and is pulling him back up! Sarah grabs Shawn by the hair and slams his face off the apron of the ring! She pushes him back inside and crawls back in herself! Sarah rolls Shawn to the center of the ring, and now she’s heading for the ropes! Sarah is looking to end this match with her ‘Happy Ending’ Moonsault!
Rich Russillo: Sarah gets herself set and launches herself off!
James Peters: SHAWN MOVES!
Rich Russillo: Sarah slams into the canvas and Shawn is forcing himself to his feet! He leans down and deadlifts Sarah up! German suplex that Shawn bridges into a pin!
James Peters: SARAH KICKS OUT!
Rich Russillo: HOWEVER SHAWN MAINTAINS CONTROL WITH THE WAISTLOCK AND HE LIFTS SARAH BACK UP! SHAWN IS LOOKING FOR ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX, BUT SARAH IS FIGHTING WITH EVERYTHING SHE HAS LEFT! SHE IS KICKING OUT HER FEET, CLAWING AT SHAWN’S ARMS! SHAWN IS FORCED TO SIT SARAH BACK DOWN ON HER FEET AND SHE CATCHES SHAWN WITH AN ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! SHE HITS HIM WITH ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! SHAWN HAS TO LET GO AND SARAH QUICKLY RUNS THE ROPES! SHE USES THE MOMENTUM TO BRING HER FORWARD AND SHE TAKES SHAWN DOWN WITH A CROSSBODY! SHE GOES TO HOOK THE LEGS, BUT SHAWN IS ALREADY KICKING OUT! SARAH IS LOOKING DESPERATE BUT SHE RETURNS TO HER FEET AND GRABS SHAWN UP WITH HER! SARAH WHIPS HIM INTO THE ROPES AND CATCHES HIM ON THE REBOUND WITH ‘PLOT TWIST’! BICYCLE KNEE CONNECTS WITH SHAWN’S FACE AND THAT HAS TO BE IT!
James Peters: SARAH MAKES HER WAY BACK TO THE TOP ROPE AND GETS HERSELF SET UP FOR A SECOND ‘HAPPY ENDING’! SARAH TAKES A DEEP BREATH AND FLIES OFF AND THIS TIME SHE LANDS ON SHAWN! SARAH WITH THE COVER!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER… SARAH PRICE!
( Sarah’s theme begins to play once again and she scrambles to her feet, pure joy written across her face. The referee raises her hand, and Sarah is so excited she won the match. )
James Peters: What a performance from Sarah! She did amazing and picked up her first victory here in EAW
Rich Russillo: Sarah showed a lot of grit and determination, and ultimately got the job done here tonight. Congratulations, Sarah!
( The camera gets a final shot of Sarah celebrating, before cutting to another commercial. )
( Commercial break for Boomtown Casino in Biloxi featuring Dynasty Elitist, Landerson. Landerson is seen with his family enjoying the buffets and just randomly screaming ‘HERE COMES THE BOOM!’ Gotta love the Bible belt. )
( Voltage fades back in and cuts to Bella. )
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR…ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
( “LLC” by Nicki Minaj blasts through the beach speakers as Aniyah Mitchell walks down the sandy beach towards the ring. She looks at the crowd and smirks, flexing her arms and admiring them before entering the ring. The crowd boos loudly. )
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, WEIGHING IN AT 155 POUNDS!!…THE HOOD PRINCESS…ANNNIIYAAHHH MIIITCHELLL!!!!
Rich Russillo: Well, let’s hope she’s out here to be the beach princess as well because it is hot as hell out here. But Aniyah Mitchell seems to have all her bases covered. This lady is a future GOAT in the making and make no mistake about that folks. The past two weeks have shown that every time Aniyah has walked into a match, she walked out the winner. Can she keep up the streak? Time to find out.
James Peters: Hey Rich you said it man! Last week Aniyah put on a clinic against Damien Butler, today she takes on one of Voltage’s most vicious ladies.
( “LLC” dies out as smoke begins to erupt from the sand. The smoke begins to become heavy as “We Own the Night” by Hollywood Undead plays and Serena Riot makes her way crawling into the ring. The crowd with mixed reaction and shocked. )
Bella Braxton: ….AND HER OPPONENT, FROM CLEVELAND, OHIO…WEIGHING IN AT 150 POUNDS, THE FALLEN PROPHET….SEREEEENNAAAA RIIIOTTT!!!
James Peters: :lupe: I thought she died last week. I’m surprised she’s not only alive again but cleared to wrestle. Should she really be out here?
Rich Russillo: Serena is many things but weak is not one of them. You have to remember, she’s one of the toughest ladies, and I believe pound for pound is one of the best wrestlers on Voltage. 100% or not, Aniyah is not having an easy time tonight against Serena.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: The bell rings and both challengers are looking intently at one another. Aniyah making the first move as she goes in for a headlock attempt! Serena expertly dodges and tries a lock of her own! Aniyah seems to have predicted it, sidestepping Serena and going for a suplex from behind….NO! Serena with a backward headbutt and Aniyah staggering back as the skull meets the face! Serena seeing an opening going for a lariat, BUT ANIYAH SEES IT COMING AND FLINGS SERENA OVER THE TOP ROPE!
James Peters: Not so fast! Serena landing on the apron, Aniyah turning around, STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI TO THE TEMPLE OF ANIYAH! Aniyah down on both her knees and…SERENA WITH A MINI STUNNER AGAINST THE ROPES TO ANIYAH’S THROAT AS SERENA JUMPS DOWN THE APRON! Aniyah clutching her throat in pain in the ring!
Rich Russillo: Serena sliding back in, locking the legs!
Rich Russillo: And a quick kickout at one! Serena now in control as she’s dragging Aniyah up by the hair. Aniyah better not underestimate Serena in this match! Aniyah trying to retaliate with elbow strikes but Serena shoving them aside, A KNEE TO THE GUT BY SERENA TO ANIYAH! Aniyah clutching her midsection in pain…ANOTHER KNEE BUT THIS TIME TO THE FACE OF ANIYAH! ANIYAH GROGGY AND DIZZY….NO! ANIYAH FIRES BACK WITH A VICIOUS HEADBUTT!! Serena Riot taken aback by the explosive power of Aniyah! Serena with a heel kick, Aniyah ducks under it, HEEL KICK OF HER OWN! …BUT SERENA CATCHES IT AND LIFTS UP ANIYAH OFF HER FEET, ANIYAH USING THE LEVERAGE TO HIT AN ENZUIGIRI!! — NO! SERENA DUCKS, STILL CLUTCHING THE LEG OF ANIYAH…SHE SLAMS THE LEG, KNEE FIRST ONTO THE MAT!
James Peters: Here I was thinking this would be an easy match for Aniyah, but Serena is clearly proving me wrong! Serena smart, focusing now on Aniyah’s legs and knees, Serena with a knee lock but Aniyah seems to be hitting her back with her free arms, Aniyah grabbing a handful of Serena’s hair and pulling it now! ANIYAH USING THE HAIR AS LEVERAGE TO GET BACK UP! –SERENA WITH A SLAP! BUT ANIYAH PULLING HARDER! REFEREE TRYING TO BREAK UP THE HAIR PULLING.
( Ref breaks up both the ladies. )
Rich Russillo: SPEAR!! SPEAR BY ANIYAH TO SERENA WHO’S NOW SANDWICHED BETWEEN THE TOP AND MIDDLE ROPE! ANIYAH RUNNING BACK NOW, LOOKING FOR ANOTHER SPEAR?!- NO!
James Peters: Aniyah with a SUICIDE DIVE THROUGH THE ROPES, TAKING SERENA DOWN WITH HER THROUGH THE ROPES AND ONTO THE HOT SAND!! Serena looks twisted like a pretzel here! Aniyah recuperating outside as both ladies seem to have hit the barricade in their fall! The ref begins the countout.
James Peters: Aniyah back up on her feet and grabbing Serena, lining her up against the barricade!
Aniyah (off mic): Bitch you ain’t shit!
Rich Russillo: ANIYAH WITH A HARD CHOP ACROSS SERENA’S CHEST!! Aniyah now wrapping Serena’s arms behind the barricade, locking her in! More flurry of chops across the chest!! That’s almost ten chops in a row!
James Peters: :wow: Looks like Aniyah is taking some time doing pushups now! The nerve on this lady, she gives no fucks! LOOK OUT! Serena free and using her feet to drive it on the back of Aniyah’s skull just as she was unaware of Serena while doing the pushups! Aniyah’s head now trapped under the boots of Serena! Serena with a maniacal laugh! SERENA LIFTING ANIYAH BACK TO HER FEET AND RAMMING HER INTO A NEARBY SANDCASTLE WHICH I SWEAR I SAW SOME KIDS SPEND FIVE HOURS BUILDING!!!!
( Nearby kids shocked and crying as their precious castle goes poof! )
Rich Russillo: Ref is still counting, the two ladies better get back in the ring quick!
James Peters: Well, that can wait, LOOK! Serena now taking a handful of the sand and shoving it inside Aniyah’s mouth….yuck! Is that even legal in this match!? Aniyah choking on it as Serena simply laughs like a maniac! Serena now taking the now-mouthful of Aniyah and….SHOULDER JAWBREAKER!!! You know, a couple of weeks ago Felix made Cepheus eat glass, and considering glass is made from sand, this might be pretty brutal!
Rich Russillo: :lupe:
James Peters: :lupe:
Rich Russillo: Well, a jawbreaker is a jawbreaker and Aniyah is down on the sand clutching her mouth as she’s spitting out the sand! SERENA FROM BEHIND! Shoving Aniyah back inside the ring and following inside herself! Serena looking to set something up now as she positions behind Aniyah! RUNNING BOOT! –NO! Aniyah with an elbow strike that perfectly lands across Serena’s face! BUT IT ONLY SEEMS TO HAVE MADE SERENA MORE ANGRY!! RUNNNING BOOT BY SERENA!! IT CONNECTS!! BUT SERENA NOW FOLLOWING WITH A VICIOUS SET OF KICKS TO THE BACK OF ANIYAH’S SKULL!! ANIYAH DOWN! SERENA TAKING A STEP BACK AND USING THE ROPES FOR LEVERAGE — WICKED WAYYYYSS!!! WE’VE SEEN SERENA END MULTIPLE LIVES WITH THIS MOVE!!
James Peters: BUT ANIYAH ROLLS OUT! Serena lands on the canvas with force but misses the mark, Aniyah giving herself more distance from this demonic lady! LOOK! Aniyah is still flexing! Damn! Serena seems to be even more riled up, and here I was thinking she was ready to pop a blood vessel already! SERENA CHARGING AT THE GROGGY ANIYAH! JUMPING KNEE STRIKE!!! — NO!!! ANIYAH CATCHES HER MID AIR!! THE POWER!!! GOOOD NIGHT POOOH!!!!! OUTTA NOWHERE TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!! RIGHT ON TO SOME OF THE CROWD MEMBERS!! MULTIPLE BODIES JUST COLLAPSED ON EACH OTHER!!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT!! HOLY SHIT!! HOLY SHIT!!
James Peters: Who would’ve thought Aniyah had the strength to pull this off? LOOKS LIKE ANIYAH IS NOT DONE! SHE’S PERCHED NOW ON THE TOP ROPE!!
Aniyah (off-mic) Clear the way bitches!
Rich Russillo: BREAK A BITCH!!! ANIYAH WITH A CORKSCREW SENTON FROM THE TOP ROPE RIGHT INTO THE CARNAGE BELOW!! Both ladies are now on the sandy shores as neither of them looks like they have anything else to continue. Serena was in a deathmatch last week, so I’m shocked she’s even going this far into the match, but as always, Serena is a monster and she claims that something sinister “powers” her from within.
James Peters: Well whatever powers her, she better hope it can overpower Aniyah! Speaking of which, Aniyah back on her feet now and looking down at Serena with contempt! Aniyah lifting Serena up…GORILLA PRESS SLAM ONTO THE SAND!! –BUT WAIT! SERENA LANDS ON HER FEET! ANIYAH DIDN’T NOTICE IT…SPINNING BACK ELBOW BY SERENA ON ANIYAH!! ANIYAH DOWN ON HER KNEES! WICKED WAYYSSS!!!! SERENA PLANTS ANIYAH DOWN HER WITH WICKED WAYS!!! —SERENA DRAGGING ANIYAH BACK INSIDE THE RING WITH DIFFICULTY!!
Rich Russillo: A PIN!
James Peters: Kickout!! Aniyah is still in this match! Serena looks like she’s seen a ghost! Serena pinning again!!!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! Now, there are advantages to pinning someone so soon, it takes up more energy to kick out again and again, but Serena must be getting pretty desperate to be pinning so soon. We haven’t seen this kind of urgency from her!
James Peter: Mhm, SERENA NOW LOOKING TO END THIS! SHE’S GOING UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE NOW!!! — NO! ANIYAH BACK TO HER FEET WITH A KIP UP!! SERENA IS PERCHED UP AND NOWHERE TO GO AS BOTH WOMEN LOOK AT EACH OTHER!!….ANIYAH WITH A QUICK JUMP UP AND NOW SHE’S ON THE TOP ROPE TOO!! BOTH WOMEN IN A PERILOUS POSITION!! They continue to trade strikes up there! Looks like Serena is becoming groggy!! —ANIYAH IS GOING UNDER SERENA…SHE PICKS HER UP ON HER SHOULDERS….GOOODNIGHT POOOH!!! FROM THE TOP ROPE!!! HOLY SHIT!
Rich Russillo: THAT DREADED F5! SERENA IS PLANTED RIGHT ON THE TURNBUCKLE…SHE BOUNCES FROM THE IMPACT AND LANDS SQUARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!! ANIYAH WASTING NO TIME!!! SHE’S PICKING UP SERENA ONCE MORE….BARBIE DREAMSS!!!!! GOES FOR THE PIN HOOKING BOTH LEGS!!
Rich Russillo: …A KICKOUT!!! HOW?!
James Peters: Well, the look on Aniyah’s face should be enough of an indicator how we all feel. Serena is a monster and Aniyah can’t believe two of her patented signatures with have put countless wrestlers on the shelf couldn’t get the job done! Aniyah arguing with ref!
Rich Russillo: Aniyah now looking back at Serena and positioning her for a powerbomb! — NO! SERENA FLIPS ANIYAH OVER!! ANIYAH LANDS ON HER BACK AS SHE WRITHES IN PAIN!! SERENA WITH THE DEVIL FANGS!! SERENA HAS THE DEVIL FANGS LOCKED IN!! THAT DRAGON SLEEPER IS A DEADLY HOLD..WILL ANIYAH TAP?!!
James Peters: Aniyah is struggling, she keeps viciously trying to get out as to make sure her airflow is not getting fully cut off! KICKS TO SERENA’S HEAD BY ANIYAH AS SERENA STILL HOLDS THE MOVE IN POSITION!! SERENA TRANSITIONS IT INTO A BACKBREAKER!!! PIN!!!
James Peters: AND A KICKOUT BY ANIYAH!! She’s proving again and again why she’s a powerhouse in this match! Serena now pissed off, picking up Aniyah by the hair and slapping her!! Serena mocking Aniyah!! Serena flexing her own arms in front of her! LARIAT!! LARIAT BY SERENA ON A GROGGY ANIYAH! ANIYAH SEEMS TO BE ON HER FINAL LEGS!! ….RUNNING BOOT BY SERENA…NO!!! ANIYAH DUCKS … ANIYAH JUST SPAT IN THE FACE OF SERENA!! KICK TO THE GUT OF SERENA!! PEDIGREE!!! PEDIGREE!!! BUt Aniyah too tired to capitalize on the pin!
Rich Russillo: Both ladies crawling back up, Serena up on her feet first but she seems dazed! Serena now pulling Aniyah outside on the sand again! Serena lifting up Aniyah’s face by the chin, HEADBUTT!! ANIYAH JUST PLANTS A HEADBUTT!! Serena begins laughing maniacally again!! Serena picking up Aniyah and holding her upside down!!! PILEDRIVER?!!! –NO!!! ANIYAH IS STRUGGLING TO BREAK FREEE!!! SHE USES HER LOWER BODY STRENGTH TO FLIP THE POSITION— NOW IT’S SERENA WHO’S IN THE UPSIDE DOWN POSITION!!! –I”VE NEVER SEEN A DISPLAY OF SHEER POWER! PILEDRIVERR!!!!!! PILEDRIVER ON THE HOT SAND!!!! — SERENA’S HEAD IS BURIED IN THE SAND AND HER BODY IS STILL HANGING OUTSIDE IN A WEIRD HANDSTAND POSITION!! ANIYAH LITERALLY PLANTED SERENA LIKE A POLE INSIDE THE SAND!!
James Peters: SERENA STUCK! Serena can’t even break free if she tried! — Aniyah twerking in front of Serena making an even bigger mockery of her! Aniyah now back in the ring and going to the top rope! She’s looking down at Serena who’s still buried head-first inside the sand! — BREAK A BITCH SENTON ON SERENA!!! SERENA’S BODY JUST GOES LIMP AT THE IMPACT!!! ANIYAH DOWN AS WELL, BUT SHE’S RISING BACK TO HER FEET! THIS TIME SHE’S DRAGGING SERENA OUT OF THE SAND AND BACK NEAR THE SANDCASTLE WHICH THE KIDS HAVE PAINSTAKINGLY REBUILT!! SERENA NOW BEING FORCED TO HAVE SAND SHOVED DOWN HER THROAT BY ANIYAH!! THE SANDCASTLE IS DESTROYED AGAIN!!
( Cue the screaming and crying kids. )
Rich Russillo: Aniyah now dragging Serena back inside the ring, Serena has no idea what’s been going on ever since the piledriver! She’s totally out of it! ANIYAH WITH ONE LAST FLEX!! — BLACK GIRL MAGIC!!! ANIYAH ABOUT TO SEAL THE DEAL HERE! CAN IT BE?!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “LLC” by Nicki Minaj plays as the ref holds up Aniyah’s arms, which she shrugs off and raises on her own before flexing them with a cocky smile. Serena lays there motionless. The fans with mixed reactions as some of them clearly enjoyed the brutal beating Aniyah delivered. )
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…ANIYAHHHH MITTCHELLLL!!!!
Rich Russillo: Wow, here we were thinking this would be a quick and easy one, but these ladies gave us a classic and I’d be lying if I said I’m not shocked that Aniyah won! In the end, the sheer power of this woman caught Serena off guard, and no matter what Serena did, Aniyah had an answer to it. If this is the pace at which Aniyah keeps destroying her opponents, her path to glory in EAW will be something special to behold!
James Peters: Absolutely, and that’s taking nothing away from Serena Riot. This woman is a monster in her own right, putting on killer matches and just last week took on PAKA in a deathmatch, toe to toe against an opponent who is not only at a 100%, but also gifted in the ring, Serena pulled off a great match, nevertheless, congratulations to Aniyah who I’m sure has earned a lot of fans after this match!….the poor sandcastles tho.
Rich Russillo: :lupe:
( As Aniyah Mitchell celebrates her hard fought victory, Voltage cuts to the inside of one of their tents. The tents are serving as the backstage area tonight, and Sarah Price is seen standing in front of a monitor. She was victorious in her match earlier against Shawn Sturgis, and seems rather impressed by the match she witnessed between Aniyah and Serena Riot. A thoughtful look crosses her face and she turns away from the monitor, and begins walking. )
( Sarah makes her way out of the tent and heads for one of the others that have been set up. Once she gets inside, she heads right for the space that has been designated the ‘office area’ for Matt and Veena. A smile crosses Sarah’s face as she sees Matt sitting in a beach chair with his iMac on his lap. )
Sarah Price: Excuse me, sir?
( Matt looks up. )
Matt Daniels: Sarah. How can I help you?’
( Sarah flashes Matt a shy smile and bites down on her bottom lip. )
Sarah Price: Well, I kinda wanted to talk to you about Territorial Invasion.
Matt Daniels: What about it?
Sarah Price: Well, everything I guess. Look, I know I’m a rookie and only have a few matches under my belt, but Aniyah Mitchell is in the same boat as me when it comes to experience here on Voltage. She’s getting a chance to compete at Territorial Invasion, and represent this brand in the ‘Divide and Conquer’ match, and I would like the opportunity to represent Voltage in some kind of match as well.
( Sarah smiles brightly; pure joy for the sport of wrestling written all over her face. )
Sarah Price: This company is full of strong, powerful women who do amazing things on a weekly basis. Just being in the lockerroom here on Voltage, and knowing that athletes like Raven Roberts, Ms. Extreme, and Andrea Valentine are going to compete in War Games is inspiring to me. This place has a female New Breed Champion, who continues to defy the odds and win her matches. Felix is amazing! Cameron Ella Ava and Kassidy Heart are going to put on a clinic when they face off for the Universal Women’s Championship, and even Doctor Bethany Blue finds herself with an incredible opportunity at Territorial Invasion. The point is, I really want a spot on the card, Captain Charisma. Please let me compete at TI.
( Matt stays silent for a few seconds, looking at Sarah and digesting everything she’d said just now. )
Matt Daniels: Competing at a major free-per-view is a lot different than competing on a regular, weekly episode of Voltage. Are you sure you are ready for a challenge like that?
( Sarah nods her head eagerly. )
Sarah Price: I’m more than sure. I didn’t come here to sit on my hands, and take a backseat. I came to Elite Answers Wrestling, the biggest company in the world, to make a name for myself and become one of the best wrestlers in the world. I want to show everyone that you don’t have to put on an act, and act tough, and act like a witch… or whatever, to be a solid in-ring competitor and performer. Being able to perform on a stage like Territorial Invasion would be the perfect chapter for my fairytale, and give me the experience I need to compete at the highest level. Please, sir. I’m sure there’s something I can be involved in come Territorial Invasion.
( Matt thinks for a moment. )
Matt Daniels: Have you heard about the Divide and Conquer match?
Sarah Price: Yes! Apparently it’s going to be a Battle of the Sexes?
Matt Daniels: That’s right. A male team of seven against a female team of seven, and whoever is left of the winning team fights for the right to have a title shot come Battle of Egypt.
Sarah Price: I would absolutely love to be a part of that! That’s exactly the kind of thing I’m talking about when I talk about showcasing powerful, female athletes. I know that Io Ishimori, The Valkyrie, Aniyah, and Serena are already on the team, and Showdown will fill out their remaining spot with either Jenny Cien or Kensingten Calhoun-Astor. To be part of that team and that match would mean everything to me!
Matt Daniels: Alright, then consider it a done deal. As far as I’m concerned, you and Jesse Barlow will be the final Voltage participants for Divide and Conquer.
( Sarah claps her hands together, clearly ecstatic over the opportunity she’s being given. )
Sarah Price: Thank you so much, sir! I will do my best to make Voltage proud.
Matt Daniels: I have no doubt.
( Sarah smiles brightly, pumped about being added to Territorial Invasion, Voltage fades into commercial break. )
( Commercial break for the Hard Rock casino and hotel in Biloxi featuring Charlie Marr and his girlfriend, Jordie Ripley. They are hanging poolside, while being waited on by the staff, because nothing screams Bible belt quite like a casino. )
( Voltage returns from break and the camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the middle of the ring. Jordie Ripley is seen at ringside as the referee has his back turned to the camera, but it’s kind of obvious who it is. )
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bella Braxton: In the ring, YOUR SPECIAL GUEST REFEREE! The EAW World Champion… Charlie…MARR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
( The crowd erupts in boos as Charlie Marr dramatically turns around sporting a referee tank top and a whistle. He has a smirk on his face as Jordie Ripley smiles at ringside. The boos linger in the air a bit before the crowd breaks into cheers as “Alive” by P.O.D. plays and Rex McAllister breaks out from behind the curtain to the many cheers of the crowd. He looks around for a bit before kicking sand in the air and walking to the ring. )
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Sea Isle New Jersey, weighing in at 238 pounds… Rex… MCALLISTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: In his head Rex McAllister must be fuming that Charlie Marr is the special guest referee of his match.
James Peters: Indeed. After Fire and Ice beat both Marr and Veena, he is bound to get revenge and what better opportunity than tonight when he has Rex in clear view with no consequences whatsoever. But whatever happens, this is bound to be interesting.
( Rex McAllister enters the ring and glares at Charlie Marr for a moment as Marr gives off a smug look. Rex goes to the top rope and takes off his jacket before jumping off and getting ready in the corner as “Alive” fades out. “The Pain” by Senses Fail plays to boos as Jesse Barlow comes out to the ring. He has a confident and cocky look on his face as he walks to the ring. )
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Hoboken New Jersey, weighing in at 210 pounds… THE VIRTUOUS, JESSE…BARLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: This match presents itself with a hell of an opportunity for Jesse Barlow. As talented as he is, things haven’t really gone his way on Voltage so far. If he could knock off the number one contender for the EAW World Championship, he could get himself right back on track here on Voltage.
James Peters: If anything Charlie Marr as a referee favors Jesse in this match as Marr is gunning for Rex.
( Jesse Barlow enters the ring and swings one arm in the air to the boos of the crowd. He takes a look at Charlie who has a smile on his face as “The Pain” fades out. Both men look ready to go as Charlie signals for the bell. )
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as what’s sure to be an interesting match tonight. Jesse and Rex quickly lock up both jockeying for position. Rex slamming Jesse to the ground as Jesse is swinging around trying to get himself out. JESSE QUICKLY PUSHING REX OFF! Jesse kipping up as he grabs Rex! BACKSLIDE! JACKKNIFE PIN BY JESSE!!!
James Peters: KICK OUT BY REX! Rex looking a bit angered as it seems Marr counted fast. Jesse stepping back as Rex is trying to get up! JESSE STOMPING ON THE FACE OF REX SENDING HIM BACK DOWN!

Rich Russillo: REX PUNCHING JESSE RIGHT IN THE FACE SENDING HIM BACK! Charlie already showing signs of bias here as Rex is getting into the face of Charlie. Charlie threatening to disqualify him! JESSE FROM BEHIND! GERMAN SUPLEX TO REX! Rex falling right into the corner as Jesse is quickly pulling him out of it. CLOTHESLINE- NO REX BLOCKS IT! SPINEBUSTER!

Charlie Marr (Off-Mic): No I love you more- OH!
Rich Russillo: Rex looking in anger as Charlie just screwed up a chance to win for him! Charlie shrugging him off. WAIT JESSE KIPPED UP! CURB STOMP- NO REX BARELY MOVING OUT OF THE WAY! Jesse stumbling up! JUMPING KNEE BY REX BRINGING JESSE DOWN! Rex bringing Jesse up- NO JESSE POKING THE EYE OF REX SENDING HIM BACK! Charlie Marr acting like he didn’t see anything as Rex falls right into Jesse! DDT! Rex falling straight down as Jesse is urging Rex to get up! JESSE RUNNING!

Everyone is blinded as Jesse is going for the pin on Rex!
Rich Russillo: REX BARELY KICKING OUT IN TIME! Charlie trying to pull a fast one on Rex but Rex turns the tables real quick on him. Jesse stumbling up to his feet as Rex is stirring up as well. Jesse grabbing Rex! GERMAN SUPLEX- NO! REX BARELY MANAGING TO LAND ON HIS FEET AS JESSE IS IN SHOCK! JESSE RUNNING AT REX! CLOTHESLINE! BOTH MEN COLLAPSING ON THE GROUND OUT OF BREATH!

James Peters: REX FINALLY REELING BACK AND HITTING HIM WITH A STIFF ELBOW DROP SENDING JESSE BACK AS REX PULLS HIM BACK UP AND BOTH OF THEM GO TO THEIR FEET! Rex taking a run I think he’s going for the Rex Effect! NO! JESSE GOING LOW WHILE REX WAS RUNNING AND GOING FOR A CHOP BLOCK! Rex falls down clutching his leg as Jesse drags him to the center of the ring and pulls him up to his feet and grabs his head! REPENT-
Rich Russillo: NO! REX BARELY MANAGING TO DUCK UNDER THE STIFF PUNCH AS HE GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND! RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP TO JESSE BARLOW!!! Jesse in a lot of pain as Rex is trying to get a gasp of air in. Rex finally getting up and falling to the corner as he waits for Jesse to get up as well! REX RUNNING! WAIT JESSE! SPEAR- NO REX! REX TRANSITIONS RIGHT INTO A DDT! Jesse trying to go for Abolisher once again but Rex catches him and the match continues!

Rich Russillo: Hey it’s the reason we got booted from the arena!
James Peters: :lupe:
Rich Russillo: Rex looking around as the crowd cheers for more! Wait what is he doing?!?!?! REX IS POURING SAND ON THE FACE OF JESSE! THAT MUST HURT AS JESSE IS SCREAMING IN PAIN!
Charlie Marr (Off-Mic): HEY THAT’S ILLEGAL BITCH!

James Peters: Charlie has been silenced as Rex is still going at Jesse with repeated punches!! Jesse finally retreating pushing Rex away as his face is filled with pain and suffering.

Rich Russillo: Jesse barely able to stand as he holds onto the ropes! Wait! CHARLIE IS STILL COUNTING ON REX WHAT IS THIS?!?!?

(DING! DING! DING!)
( The crowd erupts in boos as “The Pain” plays up as Jesse is still knocked out cold. Charlie brings Jesse up and raises his hand in victory before quickly dropping it and running to Jordie, who is laid out on some kid’s sandcastle. )
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… JESSE BARLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: Now if that isn’t a screwjob I don’t know what is. A well deserved win by Jesse Barlow but not in the right way. Charlie Marr did everything in his power to stop Rex from winning and in the end he had enough.
Rich Russillo: Indeed, this just proves that Rex needs to keep going to dethrone Charlie. He’s got his match against him at Territorial Invasion, but let’s just see how Rex is going to pull that one off when it comes!
( The final shot is of Rex grabbing his head in pain as Raven Roberts, angry and all, runs over to check on him. Rex looks pissed as the crowd boos for Charlie as he walks off with a beaten Jordie Ripley thrown over his shoulder. Voltage fades to commercial break. )
( Commercial break for the Beau Rivage Casino & Resort in Biloxi featuring Ms. Extreme, Consuela Rose Ava, and Andrea Valentine. The three are seen hanging out at the nightclub inside the casino, living it up, and having a great time because after all, why not spend your time in the heart of the Bible belt partying? )
( Voltage returns from break and cuts to the ring. “Bad Medicine” by Bon Jovi is playing, and Dr. Bethany Blue is making her way down to the ring. She is dressed in a fitted Prada mini-dress and black Louboutins, and is of course wearing her doctor’s coat. )
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome Dr. Bethany Blue!
( The good doctor beams as her name is announced, but the crowd doesn’t really know how to react to her. They greet her with a mix of jeers and catcalls, and once she slides into the ring, Dr. Blue is handed the microphone. The music fades out and the crowd quiets down, and the doctor has a serious look on her pretty face. )
Dr. Bethany Blue: One of my biggest pet peeves is the negative reaction people who work in the medical industry get, especially doctors such as myself, but I do understand it. No one likes to be admitted into a hospital and get poked with needles, have tests ran on them, and in the most extreme cases, get cut open for surgery. However, what people fail to realize is that doctors, especially ones like myself, just want to help. I care about each and every single one of my patients, and that’s why I go above and beyond, sometimes taking the most extreme measures you can think of, in order to get them into my office and make sure they’re okay. My opponent for Territorial Invasion, Terry Chambers, is no exception. A couple of weeks ago, I decided that it would be in Terry’s best interest, as well as in the best interest of the Interwire Championship AND Territorial Invasion match, to sit down with me and let me run a few tests on him, just to make sure everything is in good working order. I take both of my professions very seriously, and when I step inside the ring to do my other job, I want to face quality opponents and athletes who are in peak physical shape that can match me.
Dr. Bethany Blue: You can take one look at Terry Chambers and know that he’s not even remotely close to being in good shape, and as a medical professional, that hurts me more than anything. I hate to see a talented athlete like Terry just let himself go and become a walking advertisement for what it’s like to live with diabetes. While I can admit that so far Terry’s physique hasn’t caused him to suffer inside the ring, and he is still extremely talented and able to do things most individuals suffering with borderline obesity aren’t able to do, the doctor inside of me can’t help but think of what Terry could be if he would just let me help him. The right diet and exercise program would do wonders for Terry. Those few precious hours he was in my care a couple of weeks ago worked miracles on him. Terry dropped three pounds simply by having his nutrition intake cut to absolutely zero. Now some people would say that starving a patient is extreme, but labeling a patient as ‘NPO’ is simply common in my world. ‘Nil per os’ otherwise known as ‘NPO’ is Latin for nothing by mouth. Keeping food and liquids away from Terry reduces the risk of those things getting into his lungs and causing other medical problems such as pneumonia while he’s sedated, and plus it helps him drop a little weight. Honestly, those few hours Terry was in the care of Nurse Rannanah Goldstein and I were probably the best thing that’s happened to him in awhile.
Dr. Bethany Blue: I care about Terry, and I know the rest of the EAW Universe does as well. His championship victory at Pain for Pride while go down in history as the most feel good moment this sport has ever seen. Finally, a man like Terry got his first taste of championship gold after years of struggling and trying to break through. I was touched. I know all of you were as well, and when you think back to that moment, and remember the emotion on Terry’s face, when you remember your own emotion, think of how that moment could have been ruined if Terry had dropped dead from a heart attack after the match.
( The crowd gasps a little, and Dr. Blue’s beautiful face looks very somber. )
Dr. Bethany Blue: A man of Terry’s size, with all that unnecessary weight on him, is at risk for a heart attack. As much energy as we expend inside the ring, it blows my mind that Terry hasn’t dropped dead yet. He’s a medical mystery. I need to know what’s really going on inside of him, which is why Nurse Goldstein and I sedated him and took him into our care a couple of weeks ago. That’s how we can help him and prolong his precious life, and on a purely selfish note, that’s how I can guarantee myself the most impressive, championship caliber victory ever. When I beat Terry at Territorial Invasion and take the Interwire Championship from it, I don’t want it to be because he got tired or sick, or worse. I’m a flawless physical specimen, and the model of health and fitness that every Elitist should aspire to be. I never want any of my victories to be in doubt because I deserve only the best EAW can give me. However, this isn’t about me. I’m just a doctor and advocate, and I know Terry won’t better himself just for me. He proved that by running away and attacking me later on, showing how ungrateful he really is especially when I went out of my way to try and help him get healthy and on the right track.
( Dr. Blue dramatically pauses. )
Dr. Bethany Blue: All of us are well aware of Terry’s personal story, and are familiar with his family. The three beautiful children he shares with his ex-wife and former high school sweetheart, Mississippi’s own Trinity Jan, are the sources of light that kept our wonderful Interwire Champion going even during the darkest of times. Landon, Savannah, and Zachary deserve to have their father in their lives for the long haul, and at the rate Terry is going right now, I’m not sure if he will be around like that. Terry just isn’t taking care of himself, and how heartbreaking would it be if he was taken from this world before his time? Terry wouldn’t be around to eventually walk Savannah down the aisle at her own wedding. He wouldn’t be able to do the usual father/son bonding stuff with little Zachary. He would miss all the milestones in Landon’s life that were nearly taken from him! We all know that little Landon bravely fought and beat Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer, and wouldn’t it be the most bitter ending if Terry’s own life came to a tragic end because of a heart attack? Diabetes? Heart disease? He would miss those moments Landon fought so bravely to have with him, and it would just be the most heartbreaking thing in the world for those three children to grow up without a father.
( At the moment, the crowd is pretty stunned. They are in total shock that Dr. Blue is dragging Terry’s family into this. )
Dr. Bethany Blue: I know you are somewhere listening to me, champ. So open your ears and listen carefully. TERRY! JUST LET ME HELP YOU! LET ME HELP YOUR FAMILY! IF YOU WON’T DO IT FOR ME AND FOR EAW AND FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP… DO IT FOR YOUR FAMILY! DO IT FOR LANDON! SAVANNAH! ZACHARDY! Terry! Am I being loud enough for you? Can you hear me? Even if my words are falling on deaf ears, and even if you refuse to believe you have a problem, I know there’s one person in this world you will listen too. This past week, I spent a lot of time with this person and got to know her, and find out even more about you. Apparently being lethargic and refusing to do anything about your obvious weight problem has always been part of who you are. Ladies and gentlemen, please turn your attention to the video tron and listen to the heartfelt words of Terry’s ex-wife, Trinity Jan.
( The scene fades into a video testimonial. Pictures of Terry and Trinity flash across the screen showing them in happier times. Terry and Trinity are seen in their younger days, as teenagers, at prom, football games, and just hanging out by themselves and with their friends. As the picture slideshow progresses, wedding pictures are shown. There are pictures of Terry with each newborn child; family pictures from holidays and birthdays. There are photos of Terry and Trinity comforting Landon in a hospital bed. There are pictures from Landon’s celebration party from when he was declared cancer free, and once that ends, the slideshow fades into a shot of Trinity sitting on a black leather couch. )
Trinity Jan: I spent 13 years of my life with Terry Chambers, and honestly, I wish I could sit here today and say they were fantastic. I want to talk about how active he was and how much time he spent with the kids, and all the activities we did together as a family, but unfortunately I just don’t have that many positive stories to share. While he does do his best to be a good father, and take an active approach to spending time with the kids, more often than not Terry is too tired to do anything with them that involves getting up from the couch. I know his lifestyle as a professional wrestler is demanding, and leaves him tired, but at the end of the day, it’s our children who are suffering from his lack of accountability when it comes to taking care of himself and getting in better shape.
Trinity Jan: When Landon was fighting cancer, Terry made a promise to him that once Landon defeated the disease, they would spend more time outside, playing sports, and going hiking, and just being active together. However, none of that has happened so far and it’s because Terry just doesn’t have the ability or the energy to be the father he promised to be. I will admit that he’s always been a little lazy, and has never really done the whole going to the gym and eating right thing, and there were periods in our marriage when our sex life suffered because Terry would get winded when he shouldn’t, but I thought for sure that he would get himself together and start taking his health seriously for Landon’s sake. That’s just not been the case, and it just honestly destroys me to see my children hurt by their father and his lack of self love. Terry and I might not be together anymore, but I still care about him. The children adore him when he’s not disappointing them, and I want him in their lives for the long haul. I’m scared that one day he’s going to stop breathing in his sleep because his heart simply can’t keep up. I want Terry to get help, and get in shape, and live the healthiest possible life. That’s why I wish he would just listen to Dr. Bethany Blue, and take her advice.
( Trinity Jan looks into the camera with tears in her eyes. )
Trinity Jan: Terry, please listen to me. As the one person in this world who knows you better than anyone, you have to get yourself together. You’re a champion now and someone who is seen as a role model to not just our kids, but to every blue collar working individual! You are proof that if you continue to believe in something, you’ll eventually achieve it and because you have a lot of people looking up to you, you need to make sure you don’t let them down. Don’t let Zachary, Savannah, and Landon down. Stop being lazy and eating whatever you want, and get yourself fit. Be healthy. Live long. Do it for your kids. Please Terry. Don’t let them grow up without a father.
( The video fades out and cuts back to the ring, where Dr. Bethany Blue is standing quietly with a pained expression on her face. She touches her heart and shakes her head. )
Dr. Bethany Blue: Do it for them, Terry. Let me help you for their sake. You know where to find me, and my office door is always open. Lets get this figured out together before I take your championship come Territorial Invasion.
( “Bad Medicine” by Bon Jovi begins playing, and Dr. Blue lowers the microphone. The crowd has no clue how to even remotely react to what they have just witnessed, but one thing they know for sure is that Terry Chambers isn’t going to react well to this at all. )
( Voltage fades to commercial break. )
( Commercial break for the Imperial Palace casino and hotel featuring Raven Roberts and Rex McAllister. The happy couple are seen playing the slot machines and hitting big. When in the Bible belt, what better thing to do to waste time than gamble and drink? :wow: )
( Voltage returns and cuts to Bella for the final time tonight. )
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A WAR GAMES PREVIEW MATCH AND IT’S SCHEDULED FOR…
Drunken Crowd: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEE FFFFFFFFAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!
( ‘Odee’ by A-Boogie hits and the crowd explodes as Chris Elite begins walking out to the stage. He looks around at everyone in attendance before making his way down the ramp, towards the ring. )
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring… From Brooklyn, New York… Weighing in at 210 pounds… CHRIS EEELIIIIIIIIIITEE!!!!!
James Peters: It’s been a while since Chris Elite was seen here on Voltage. This is the man who just last year was the World Heavyweight Champion, the top guy here on Voltage, and now, he’s competing against them! Things sure changed quickly.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, but regardless of what brand Chris is on, he’s always gonna be a major threat to his opponents. Just look at all of his matches this year, and just ask the few people Chris has lost to how much of a fight he gave them.
James Peters: Yep. If his opponents aren’t careful, Chris could definitely come out the winner here tonight.
( ‘Born Too Late’ by Saint Vitus follows and the crowd gains a slightly mixed reaction, but is still mostly positive as Darkane walks out onto the stage. He wastes no time and begins walking down to the ring with a focused look on his face. )
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… From New Orleans, Louisiana.. Weighing in at 240 pounds… DAAAAAARRRKKAAAAANNEEE!!!
James Peters: Well, while Chris Elite may have been World Heavyweight Champion on Voltage, Darkane was Answers World Champion on Dynasty. Surprisingly, these two have only faced off once, and we all know how that one went down. I’d be surprised if things don’t get a bit messy with them tonight.
Rich Russillo: That’s true, and to be honest my bets are on Darkane. This man is near unstoppable, and while Chris may be a huge threat, I’m sure Darkane is someone that’s capable of defeating him.
( After Darkane’s music fades out, ‘Roll With Me’ by Charlie XCX follows, and Andrea Valentine walks out to the most positive reaction out of the three competitors. She walks down to the ring with a confident look on her face as Bella Braxton begins to speak. )
Bella Braxton: And their opponent.. From Orlando, Florida… Weighing in at 110 pounds, she is the EAW Specialists Champion, ANDREAAAAAA VAAAAALENTIIIIIINE!!!
James Peters: Now while Darkane and Chris are both former Champions, the only current Champion in this match is the Specialists Champion, Andrea Valentine! Her last title defense was a bloodbath to say the least, and even so she managed to come out on top. No matter what, you can’t deny Andrea’s ability, and I’m sure that she has a great chance of winning this match.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, she’s been through a lot in a short time. Since coming to Voltage Veena has put a lot of obstacles in her way on top of the competition she already had and she managed to surpass them.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: And the main event match is now underway! The third War Games preview match, Chris Elite versus Darkane versus Andrea Valentine! The three are seemingly waiting to see who will make the first move, the move to finally kick off this match! The three are circling the ring now, still paying attention to each other, BUT IT’S DARKANE WHO STRIKES FIRST AS HE GOES AFTER CHRIS ELITE! DARKANE JUST FLOORED CHRIS WITH A HUGE LARIAT, AND NOW HE’S STOMPING AWAY AT HIM! CHRIS IS IN TROUBLE RIGHT NOW AS DARKANE IS ALL OVER THE MAN- BUT LOOK! ANDREA NOW IS ROLLING HIM UP! ANDREA IS ROLLING DARKANE UP!
Rich Russillo: DARKANE KICKS OUT- BUT THERE’S A ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY ANDREA, JUST AS HE WAS TRYING TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! Now it’s Chris Elite beginning to get up as the two face off! The two now begin to lock up but of course Chris is able to overpower Andrea! Chris now with a headlock, but Andrea is quickly able to run him into the ropes, causing him to release the hold! Chris now off the ropes, INTO A HURRICANRANA BY ANDREA! Chris is quickly able to get to his feet, BUT ANDREA SENDS HIM OUT OF THE RING WITH A CLOTHESLINE! ANDREA IS ON FIRE RIGHT NOW!
James Peters: If this is the performance Andrea brings at Territorial Invasion, it’d definitely help in Voltage getting the win! Andrea now eyeing Chris Elite as he slowly begins to get up, and now she’s running the ropes! OH! RUNNING KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION BY DARKANE! ANDREA WAS STOPPED RIGHT IN HER TRACKS BY THAT KNEE!! CHRIS ELITE NOW IS BACK IN THE RING, AND HE AND DARKANE ARE GOING RIGHT AFTER EACH OTHER! THE TWO ARE TRADING BLOWS SO EARLY ON INTO THIS MATCH, YOU CAN TELL THE TWO STILL HAVE UNFINISHED BUSINESS!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Andrea is taking a backseat for the moment, possibly waiting for her moment to strike as Elite and Darkane are throwing everything they have at each other! Darkane now with a kick to the midsection of Chris as he now begins running the ropes- NO! Spinning sole kick from Elite! Elite now with two punches, both to the face, followed by a spinning back fist, AND THERE’S A LARIA- NO! DARKANE DUCKS THE LARIAT, AND THERE’S A LARIAT BY DARKANE! Darkane now running the ropes as Chris begins to get up- AND THIS TIME IT’S ANDREA STOPPING HIM IN HIS TRACKS AS SHE CONNECTS WITH A HUGE DROPKICK!
James Peters: Darkane went down hard! Chris Elite has gotten back to his feet though, and there’s a kick to the midsection of Andrea! Chris now with an irish whip, sending Andrea right into Darkane in the corner! Chris now charging in, AND THERE’S A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO ANDREA, DROPPING HER! CHRIS NOW BACKING UP INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER BEFORE CHARGING IN ONCE AGAIN, AND THERE’S ANOTHER UPPERCUT, THIS TIME TO DARKANE! CHRIS ELITE NOW CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE AS THE TWO OTHER COMPETITORS GET TO THEIR FEET, AND THERE’S A MISSILE DROPKICK, TAKING THEM BOTH OUT!
Rich Russillo: Both of the other competitors were taken out from that dropkick, but it looks like Darkane has rolled to the outside! Chris is running the ropes though and it looks like he’s going for something big! SUICIDE DIVE!! DARKANE IS DOWN, AND NOW CHRIS IS GOING UP TO THE TOP ROPE, POSSIBLY TO FINISH THIS MATCH ALREADY! BIONIC STOMP!! WAIT, NO!! ANDREA MOVED OUT OF THE WAY, CAUSING CHRIS TO STUMBLE BACK INTO THE CORNER AS SHE NOW CHARGES TOWARDS SHOWDOWN’S REPRESENTATIVE OF THIS MATCH! FOREARM SMASH BY ANDREA!! ANDREA NOW RUNNING THE ROPES AS CHRIS DROPS TO A KNEE! HURRICANRANA-
James Peters: WAIT, NO! CHRIS IS HOLDING ANDREA, AND NOW HE’S LIFTING HER UP! THE STRENGTH OF CHRIS ELITE NOW IS ON DISPLAY, AND THERE’S A SIT OUT POWERBOMB! CHRIS ELITE NOW WITH THE COVER, TO POSSIBLY PUT AWAY THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION AWAY EARLY!
James Peters: NO! ANDREA KICKS OUT! ANDREA KICKED OUT OF THAT POWERBOMB, BUT I DON’T THINK IT MATTERS TO CHRIS ELITE AS HE’S PICKING HER RIGHT BACK UP, AND THIS TIME HE HITS HER WITH A DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX, AND THERE’S THE PIN ONCE AGAIN!
James Peters: ANDREA KICKS OUT ONCE AGAIN!! Chris looks a bit more frustrated this time as he once again gets back to his feet, but it looks like he’s setting up for something! Chris now running towards the pair of ropes to the left of Andrea, before bouncing off and running to the opposite pair of ropes- RIGHT INTO A FOREARM BY DARKANE! I THINK CHRIS MAY HAVE BEEN SETTING UP FOR THE PEOPLE’S MOONSAULT, BUT DARKANE JUST STOPPED HIM FROM HITTING THE MOVE!
Rich Russillo: That forearm caught Chris by surprise, causing him to drop to a knee as Darkane enters the ring. Darkane now, THROWING CHRIS ELITE SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST! DARKANE ISN’T FINISHED YET, AS HE TAKES CHRIS OUT OF THE CORNER AND THROWS HIM INTO THE ROPES! DOUBLE-A SPINEBUSTE- NO! CHRIS MANAGED TO HIT A DROPKICK, PUSHING DARKANE INTO THE ROPES BEFORE HE COULD HIT THE SPINEBUSTER! CHRIS NOW CHARGING IN ON DARKANE- BUT CHRIS RAN RIGHT INTO A BOOT FROM DARKANE!
James Peters: Chris now stumbling back after that boot, AND THERE’S A LARIA- NO! CHRIS DUCKS IT! HEAD SHOT!! THE PELE KICK CONNECTS CAUSING DARKANE TO BE ON SPAGHETTI LEGS! DARKANE CAN BARELY EVEN STAND BUT THAT DOESN’T MATTER NOW AS CHRIS LIFTS HIM UP! HE HAS HIM IN THE FIREMAN’S CARRY! FACE VALUE- WAIT NO! DARKANE DUCKED THE ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! ENTER THE GRAVE!! THE EVENFLOW DDT CONNECTS, AND NOW DARKANE LOOKS LIKE HE’S READY TO COVER-
Rich Russillo: VALENTINE’S MASSACRE!! ANDREA VALENTINE JUST HIT DARKANE WITH THE VALENTINE’S MASSACRE, AND NOW IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GONNA COVER HIM, WHEN IT LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS DOWN AND OUT JUST A FEW MINUTES AGO!!
Rich Russillo: DARKANE KICKS OUT, BUT NOW LOOK! ANDREA IS COVERING CHRIS THIS TIME, SHE’S COVERING CHRIS ELITE!!
Rich Russillo: BUT CHRIS KICKS OUT AS WELL!! ANDREA LOOKS FRUSTRATED AS BOTH MEN IN THE MATCH HAVE JUST SURVIVED, EVEN AFTER EVERYTHING WE’VE JUST SEEN!
James Peters: Andrea now is climbing to the top rope, and it looks like Chris is the first one to begin getting to his feet, which ironically seems to be what Andrea wants as she waits on the top rope! Chris even doesn’t know where he is, BUT THERE’S ANDREA WITH A METEORA- WAIT NO! CHRIS CAUGHT HER!! CHRIS JUST CAUGHT ANDREA OUT OF MID AIR AS SHE TRIED TO HIT THAT METEORA, AND NOW IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S TRYING TO GO FOR A POWERBOMB OR SOMETHING, BUT ANDREA IS TRYING AS HARD AS SHE CAN TO FIGHT OUT OF HIS GRASP, FORCING CHRIS TO PLACE HER BACK ON THE TOP ROPE!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Andrea is getting ready to dive once again- BUT CHRIS DOESN’T GIVE HER THE CHANCE TO AS HE HITS A PUNCH! CHRIS NOW CLIMBING UP THE TURNBUCKLES, HITTING PUNCH AFTER PUNCH, AND I THINK HE’S TRYING TO GO FOR A SUPERPLEX! CHRIS IS TRYING TO HOOK THE ARM OF ANDREA, MEANWHILE SHE’S TRYING HER BEST TO STAY PLANTED ON THE TOP ROPE- BUT WAIT!! LOOK WHO IT IS!! IT’S DARKANE, DARKANE IS BACK UP!!
James Peters: DARKANE LOOKS LIKE HE’S SETTING UP FOR A POWERBOMB, MEANWHILE CHRIS FINALLY MANAGED TO HOOK ANDREA’S ARM! THIS COULD BE BAD! NO!! DARKANE HIT THE POWERBOMB, BUT CHRIS COULDN’T CONNECT WITH THE SUPERPLEX!! ANDREA MANAGED TO KICK CHRIS OFF OF HER AT THE LAST SECOND, AND I THINK DARKANE JUST REALIZED AS HE BEGINS TO TURN AROUND- DIVING METEORA BY ANDREA VALENTINE!! NONE OF THE THREE COMPETITORS CAN STAND RIGHT NOW, BUT ANDREA MANAGES TO PUT AN ARM OVER CHRIS, WHO’S THE CLOSEST TO HER!! IS THIS IT!? IS THIS THE END!?
Rich Russillo: NO!! CHRIS MANAGED TO GET THE SHOULDER UP, AND ALL ANDREA CAN DO AT THIS POINT IS ROLL OFF OF CHRIS, SHE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE ENOUGH IN HER RIGHT NOW TO REACT TO WHAT JUST HAPPENED! All three of these competitors are determined to win this match, because just imagine what that’d do for them heading into Territorial Invasion! This is a match I’m sure nobody wants to lose and we’re seeing proof of that right now!
James Peters: Yeah, it’s clear that these three would go this hard. I mean, both Darkane and Chris Elite are former World Champions, Chris at the time being the World Champion here on Voltage, meanwhile Andrea is a 2 time Specialists Champion! All three of them have went through their fair share of battles, this is just another one to add to that list.
Rich Russillo: Andrea now is crawling towards the corner, likely going to use the turnbuckles to try and pull herself to her feet, meanwhile Darkane is using the ropes to try and do the same. It looks like these two are the first to recover as they slowly begin to make their way towards each other, BEFORE DARKANE THROWS A PUNCH, CONNECTING WITH ANDREA’S JAW CAUSING HER TO DROP TO A KNEE! Andrea doesn’t take too long to get back up though, AS SHE HITS A PUNCH OF HER OWN, CAUSING DARKANE TO STUMBLE BACK! DARKANE NOW WITH A SECOND PUNCH! NOW ANDREA RETURNS THE FAVOR! NOW DARKANE! NOW ANDREA! NOW-
James Peters: BOX OFFICE SMASH!! CHRIS ELITE JUST HIT ANDREA WITH THE BOX OFFICE SMASH, BUT IT CAUSED HER TO FALL THROUGH THE ROPES, OUT OF THE RING BEFORE HE COULD EVEN THINK ABOUT PINNING HER, BUT NOW IT’S JUST CHRIS AND DARKANE LEFT INSIDE OF THE RING AS THE TWO SLOWLY BEGIN TO STARE AT ONE ANOTHER! THE TWO ARE SLOWLY GETTING CLOSER TO EACH OTHER, AND NOW THEY’RE TRADING BLOWS ONCE AGAIN! THESE TWO ARE GOING BACK AND FORTH JUST LIKE EARLY ON IN THE MATCH, THESE TWO JUST SEEM TO NOT KNOW WHEN TO QUIT!
Rich Russillo: DARKANE JUST HIT A HUGE RIGHT HAND CAUSING CHRIS TO TAKE A FEW STEPS BACK, BUT THERE’S A PUNCH OF HIS OWN, HAVING A SIMILAR EFFECT ON DARKANE! DARKANE NOW WITH ANOTHER PUNCH, AND CHRIS RETURNS THE FAVOR WITH ANOTHER HIMSELF! DARKANE NOW GOING FOR ONE MORE- BUT CHRIS CAUGHT IT! CHRIS CAUGHT DARKANE’S ARM- AND HE JUST SLAPPED HIM IN THE FACE! CHRIS JUST SLAPPED DARKANE IN THE FACE- OH MY GOD! WHAT A CLOTHESLINE FROM DARKANE! DARKANE JUST TURNED CHRIS INSIDE OUT WITH THAT CLOTHESLINE, AND I THINK HE MAY BE SETTING UP FOR THE END!
James Peters: Darkane now lifting Chris up, and it looks like he’s setting up for the Casket Closer- BUT CHRIS IS GETTING OUT OF IT! CHRIS IS TRYING TO GET OUT OF IT, AND HE DOES IT! CHRIS MANAGE TO GET OUT OF DARKANE’S GRASP, AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLEX, WAIT NO!! CHRIS ISN’T DONE!! HE HAS HIM UP IN THE ELECTRIC CHAIR NOW, HE’S GONNA HIT IT!! THE LONG KISS GOODNIGH- NO!! DARKANE WITH A PUNCH TO THE HEAD OF CHRIS, CAUSING HIM TO DROP DARKANE! DARKANE NOW BACKING UP AS CHRIS NOW TRIES TO CHARGE AT HIM ONCE MORE! DOUBLE-A SPINEBUSTER!! DARKANE JUST HIT THE DOUBLE-A SPINEBUSTER, THAT’S IT, THAT’S GOT TO BE IT!! THE COVER NOW BY DARKANE!!
Rich Russillo: ANDREA PULLED DARKANE OUT OF THE RING!! ANDREA JUST PULLED DARKANE OUT OF THE RING, SAVING THE MATCH FOR HERSELF AND CHRIS ELITE!! ANDREA NOW GRABBING DARKANE BY THE HEAD BEFORE JUMPING ONTO THE BARRICADE! TORNADO DDT, RIGHT INTO THE SAND!! DARKANE IS DOWN AND OUT, AND NOW ANDREA IS SLIDING INTO THE RING, TRYING TO COVER CHRIS- BUT NOW CHRIS JUST ROLLED OUT OF THE RING!! CHRIS JUST ROLLED OUT OF THE RING JUST BEFORE SHE GO FOR THE COVER, BUT I DON’T THINK IT SEEMS TO MATTER TOO MUCH AS IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S SETTING UP FOR SOMETHING BIG!
James Peters: Chris is only just barely using the barricade to try and get to his feet, BUT LOOK AT ANDREA RUNNING THE ROPES! LOOK OUT CHRIS!! SUICIDE DIVE!! ANDREA JUST TOOK HERSELF OUT AS WELL AS CHRIS ELITE AFTER THAT SUICIDE DIVE!! ALL THREE COMPETITORS ARE DOWN AND OUT RIGHT NOW, HOW ARE THESE THREE EVER GOING TO PUT THIS MATCH TO AN END!?
Rich Russillo: That’s a great question! These three are giving this everything they have, and it still looks like they’re not done! Andrea now is slowly making her way towards Darkane, and now she’s rolling him into the ring before climbing up to the top rope! Darkane is slowly beginning to get to his feet, and Andrea is lining him up! V-DAY- POWERBOMB!! POWERBOMB BY DARKANE!! JUST WHEN ANDREA WAS ABOUT TO HIT THAT SOMERSAULT SEATED SENTON, DARKANE MANAGED TO COUNTER IT WITH A POWERBOMB, BUT EVEN SO HE’S UNABLE TO CAPITALIZE AS HE DROPS TO THE MAT!
James Peters: That was a fantastic counter by Darkane, but even though he’s slowly getting back up now, it looks like he may have wasted his opportunity to end this match- MISSILE DROPKICK! CHRIS ELITE JUST NAILED DARKANE WITH A DIVING MISSILE DROPKICK OUT OF NOWHERE! I THOUGHT HE WAS STILL DOWN AND OUT BUT IT LOOKS LIKE WHILE DARKANE AND ANDREA WERE GOING BACK AND FORTH, HE SOMEHOW FOUND HIS WAY BACK INTO THE MATCH! CHRIS NOW URGING FOR DARKANE TO GET TO HIS FEET, AND IT DEFINITELY LOOKS LIKE HE’S READY TO FINISH THIS! BOX OFFICE SMASH-
Rich Russillo: DARKANE JUST THREW ANDREA IN THE WAY OF HIMSELF! CHRIS JUST HIT ANDREA WITH THE BOX OFFICE SMASH, AND NOW THERE’S DARKANE, ENTER THE GRAV- NO! CHRIS STOPPED HIMSELF BEFORE THE DDT COULD CONNECT, AND NOW HE HOOKED THE ARM OF DARKANE, AND THERE’S A SUPLE- NO!! DARKANE LANDED ON HIS FEET BEFORE THE SUPLEX COULD CONNECT, AND NOW HE’S PICKING CHRIS UP JUST AS HE TURNED AROUND!! SIX FEET UNDER!! THE SIX FEET UNDER CONNECTS!! IT’S GOTTA BE OVER, THERE’S THE COVER NOW BY DARKANE! ANDREA IS SLOWLY TRYING TO CRAWL INTO THE RING BUT I DON’T THINK SHE’S GONNA MAKE IT!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… DAAAARRKKAAAANNNEE!!!!
James Peters: She didn’t make it! Andrea was so close but she didn’t make it in time, and now Darkane is the winner! That was an incredible match though, and at all times this one could’ve gone any other way! In the end though, this provides great momentum for Team Dynasty heading into Territorial Invasion!
Rich Russillo: You’re right about that. Dynasty got a great win for them here, especially with Darkane pinning Chris Elite. Although you’ve got to wonder, if Andrea had somehow managed to break up the pin in time, do you think Darkane still would’ve won?
James Peters: Who knows. This match had a lot of shifts, but in the end what happened happened, and we can’t change that. But what I can tell you is that all three brands split wins this weekend, and I have no idea who will win come Territorial Invasion!
Rich Russillo: Voltage of course!
James Peters: :blessed: Of course!
( ‘Born Too Late’ hits and Darkane gets a slightly mixed reaction as he slowly gets to his feet before having his hand raised. Meanwhile Chris Elite is of course laid out on the mat after what just happened, and Andrea Valentine is seated in front of the apron, frustrated at the fact that she was just barely too late to stop the pin. )
