(EAW intro plays.)
(The camera fades into a recap of Voltage’s events at Grand Rampage. The recap would start with Chained Fury challenging IDOL-GUN to a match for the Unified Tag Team Championships after Ronan lost the Interwire Championship, and reluctantly IDOL-GUN would accept the match for the upcoming Voltage. After this, the recap would show Lisa Wren’s match against Andre Walker for the New Breed Championship, which Lisa would lose. The recap then shows a backstage confrontation between Sierra Bradford and Harper Lee, which would reach an abrupt end as Sierra encounters Harper’s new ally, Ximena Velasquez. After this, Malcolm Jones manages to dethrone Terry Chambers in their match for the EAW Championship. In another backstage segment, Constance Blevins goes to make sure she was properly vaccinated, but Dr. Bethany Blue catches her off guard, taking her out in another big attack. After this, Darcy May Morgan defeats Veena Adams to retain the Universal Women’s Championship. Then, in a huge Grand Rampage match with tons of returns, Voltage’s Drake King would win after Myles and Minerca would sacrifice themselves to help Drake eliminate Impact.)
(The camera cuts away from the recap and to the World 1 Theatre, and as Voltage’s music begins playing the camera begins to pan around the audience, showing all of the cheering virtual fans in attendance. After a while, the camera fades to the commentary table, where James Peters, Rich Russillo, and Persephone Tsitsipas are seated.)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to Sunday night Voltage! We’re back after a huge Grand Rampage event!
Persephone: :mjcry: That was the worst Grand Rampage ever.
Rich Russillo: Is it because Rex didn’t win? :lupe:
Persephone: Don’t ask stupid questions. OF COURSE IT’S BECAUSE REXY DIDN’T WIN!
James Peters: Well, I understand that you may be angry, but we have an excellent night ahead of us. We may even learn Rexy’s next move after coming up short in the Grand Rampage match!
Persephone: Rexy was screwed over.
Rich Russillo: This is going to be a great show, I can just feel it!
(“Scenario” by Pop Smoke begins to pump through the speakers of World 1 Theatre as Voltage comes back from break. The camera is focused on the ring, where Bella Braxton is standing by with a huge smile on her face.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME THE NEW EAW WORLD CHAMPION… MALCOLM JONES!!!!
(The virtual crowd erupts with a huge ovation as Malcolm Jones steps onto the stage. He’s grinning from ear-to-ear with the EAW World Championship strapped around his waist. Malcolm takes a moment to take in the reaction, HAMing it up, and he unstraps the belt, raising it high in the air.)
James Peters: It was one week ago that Malcolm Jones played the role of spoiler and dashed any hopes Terry Chambers had of headlining Pain for Pride as the EAW World Champion. Jones and Chambers waged a hell of a war in one of the best matches of Grand Rampage weekend and it was Malcolm Jones who emerged with his second ever world championship.
Persephone: Seriously, don’t fucking remind me. I don’t want to live in a world where Rex McAllister doesn’t headline Pain for Pride for Voltage.
James Peters: That’s the next point I was going to bring up. New Eden dominated the Grand Rampage and when the smoke cleared, it was Drake King getting awarded the victory after an intense final four that featured Impact nearly pulling off a miracle win against all three members of New Eden.
Rich Russillo: Drake has said time and time again that championships don’t mean anything to him, and all of New Eden plainly stated they wanted to win the Grand Rampage match simply to take the victory away from someone else. I have no clue how that will factor into the Pain for Pride main event, but we shall see. Right now, our new champ is in the ring and I really can’t wait to hear what Malcolm has to say.
Persephone: I can…
(“Scenario” plays itself out, with Malcolm doing the ‘woo walk’ to pay homage to Pop Smoke, and just seemingly enjoying himself. As his music fades away, he stops goofing off and the smile on his face changes into one of pure confidence. He holds the title up for the fans, and then turns his attention to the Pain for Pride sign. After staring at it for a few moments, he finally brings the microphone up to his mouth.)
Malcolm Jones: Well, I did what I said I would do and that was end the charity reign of The Hamburglar, and once again I’m standing here as your EAW World Champion. I said during the build up to Grand Rampage that when I finally unlocked my true potential back in 2019, I came to realize just how truly special of a gift I was to this sport. The things I have managed to do in my time here speak for themselves, and now with another world championship and Pain for Pride main event on the horizon, I have more than cemented myself as someone who is Hall of Fame bound. I never, ever doubted my own abilities, and that was on display last weekend. I was dialed in, locked and loaded, knowing damn well that me walking out of Globe Life Field with yet another title to my name was going to leave a lot of bitches bitter. That’s the kinda shit I live for, knowing just how truly offended people get over my success. I have earned every single thing I have ever gotten out of life through my own hard work and perseverance, and I plan to keep the ball rolling. I guess I could offer a bit of perspective and say that Chris Elite getting his ass handed to him by rebels who stormed the White House during the Insurrection was a blessing in disguise for me. After carrying him through the Grand Prix, I was freed of the ball and chain when he was taken out and I was left without a partner to carry through a championship match. Maybe if that doesn’t happen, I become a two-time Unified Tag Team Champion, but I guess in hindsight, my partner this go around wouldn’t have been any better than my last :mjgrin:.
Malcolm Jones: Things just have a way of working themselves out because that fucking bozo Drake King decided to harass me and try to take me out, but low and behold, guess who brushed that off and came back strong? That’s right, fam. I did. I guess you guys have me to thank for the formation of New Eden, because if I hadn’t beat that bozo’s ass so badly, he never would have went running behind Myles and Minerva. I guess it’s only fitting that I have to stand here and rehash all of this, because unfortunately, Drake is the one who ended up winning Grand Rampage thanks to whatever drugged Kool-Aid he gave Myles and Minerva, who both ended up sacrificing themselves for what they all believe is the greater good. This shit is bizarre. You really can’t make it up, and I’m not sure I would even want too. I know I have been open with my criticism of Voltage in the past, but those three really take it to a whole other level, and quite frankly, it’s kind of boring. I have a lot of thoughts on Drake King, and just New Eden in general, but something tells me that I’m going to be crossing paths with them soon anyway. I know I’ll be defending this championship at Battle of Egypt, but come on. Does anyone really expect me to lose that fight? :mjgrin: We all know it’s gunna be Malcolm Jones beating the shit out of Dra-
(“My Brother (the Dragonslayer)” by Shiro SAGISU begins to play, interrupting Malcolm. Immediately, the virtual crowd becomes unglued, and that’s because that theme music belongs to none other than New Eden.)
Persephone: Oh. I was asleep and dreaming that Malcolm Jones was done talking, and now that I’m awake, I see he’s still in the ring. Seriously, why?
James Peters: I think the better question is why are New Eden making their way out here? From what we were told earlier today, none of them were scheduled to be here, and judging from Malcolm’s face, he doesn’t want them here!
Rich Russillo: Well Drake King is the Grand Rampage winner and I guess he has every right to come and go as he pleases. Sooner or later, he is going to have a decision to make, and who knows? Maybe he is coming out here to challenge the winner of the EAW World Championship match at Battle of Egypt??
Persephone: I mean, I thought this fruitcake didn’t care about world championships? Why would he step up and challenge someone for one if they don’t matter?
James Peters: So no one else can?
(New Eden, who went through absolute Hell in the closing stages of Grand Rampage, stop on the stage. Myles, Minerva, and Drake definitely look a little worse for the wear, and are still favoring the various injuries that were inflicted on them during the Grand Rampage. Drake’s hair has been pulled back into a manbun, and the camera doesn’t waste the opportunity to get an up close look at his mangled ear.)
Persephone: Ewww. That looks like something my dog chewed up.
Rich Russillo: New Eden definitely paint a grisly picture right now, and I don’t think any of them are amused right now seeing Malcolm Jones mock their injuries.
(Indeed, Malcolm is openingly mocking New Eden, much to their annoyance. It’s when Malcolm sits down on the ropes to invite them into the ring does Drake produce a microphone from the folds of his white silk robes and hold his hand up to stop the New Eden theme music from playing.)
Drake King: I know you think this whole situation is funny, Malcolm, but you’re the only person laughing right now. The list of things that are wrong with this company, and especially with this brand, continues to grow no matter how hard New Eden works. We did exactly what we set out to do at Grand Rampage and that was win the match, but all that hard work seems futile when someone like you is standing in the ring with that championship. As if Terry Chambers wasn’t bad enough. As if SOSA Henderson wasn’t bad enough. As if Rex McAllister was bad enough. Now we’re stuck with you, and you really are the embodiment of why championship belts need to be destroyed. The lavish and gluttonous lifestyle that you live is nauseating, and even if championships were more than just tangible symbols of greed, you wouldn’t respect the belt. You certainly don’t care about the history of it except for the part that was forged by your name. You like the championship because it’s a material possession, and gives you a reason to brag about being the best in the world.
(Malcolm, who is leaning on the ropes now, shrugs. He’s definitely not about to apologize for being good at his craft or for being a two-time world champion.)
Drake King: It makes me extremely upset that we live in a world where people are allowed to be so greedy. What good is bragging? What does it even prove? It’s so incredibly frustrating to turn on the television or pull up a video on the EAW website and hear every Elitist say exactly the same thing. How many times do I have to hear the entire company claim to be the best and most dominant Elitist in the world? It’s very redundant and eventually you just reach a point where nothing anyone says is even true anymore. Malcolm, why should the rest of us believe you will be a better champion than Terry Chambers? Why should the rest of us believe that you will be a better champion than SOSA or Rex? You really don’t have to answer that because I know exactly what you are going to say. You’re going to tell us it’s because you’re you, and apparently that makes you special.
Malcolm Jones: I mean…
Drake King: No.
Malcolm Jones: Fucking bozo.
Drake King: That’s extremely rude.
Malcolm Jones: Look bro, what’s your reason for even being out here? There’s three of y’all and one of me, and still you bitches don’t make your way down to the ring. What gives? You gunna announce that you’re challenging for the EAW World Championship at Pain for Pride? I mean, if that’s not what you’re out here for, then I suggest you get to steppin’. I’m out here ridin’ high, and celebrating another milestone in my career.
Drake King: I’m pretty sure no one really cares about you being out here when you’re just going to say the same thing you always do. Don’t you think it’s rather narcissistic to assume you’re going to successfully defend the championship at Battle of Egypt and move on to Pain for Pride? You don’t even know who your opponent will be.
Malcolm Jones: So that’s the thing. It doesn’t really matter to me who steps up to the plate come Battle of Egypt. I’m bulldozing right through them and continuing my championship reign with a title I never, ever should have lost in the first place. I understand there’s a final step between me and yet another headlining match, but I’m going to fly right over it and land with both feet planted firmly on the ground.
(Drake shares a look with Myles and Minerva, who have both remained quiet during this back and forth. All three wear identical, disapproving looks on their faces.)
Drake King: One day you are going to learn a hard lesson, Malcolm, and it’s that the world doesn’t favor those who favor themselves. Change is upon us, and it can not be stopped. New Eden will not be stopped. We will continue to push forward until all of our goals are met and people like you are left with absolutely nothing. You bring nothing to the table but arrogance. No one enjoys watching you. We all hate listening to you. No one really cares about you.
Malcolm Jones: :usure:
Drake King: Yes, I’m sure. Do you think people really want to see you do whatever the heck this is…
(Drake does a poor imitation of the ‘woo walk’ much to the chagrin of the crowd.)
Drake King: … whenever you come to the ring?
Malcolm Jones: Bro, you have done a lot of weird and offensive shit in your time here in EAW, but don’t you ever fucking do the woo walk again.
(Drake rolls his eyes.)
Drake King: The point I’m making is that you don’t deserve the spotlight. You don’t deserve the chance to call yourself a three-time Pain for Pride main eventer. Whether you get through Battle of Egypt or not with that championship around your waist matters not, because as far as I am concerned, Voltage will not be having a main event this year.
(The virtual crowd is a bit confused, and so is the commentary team. They murmur amongst themselves, with bits and pieces of the conversation being picked up on the television, and it’s Malcolm who appears the most confused.)
Malcolm Jones: The fuck did you just say?
Drake King: You heard me. There’s not a single Elitist on Voltage who should have their face on a poster, or have the ability to say that they are a Pain for Pride headliner. As the Grand Rampage winner, I have the right to choose any title I want to compete for, and I’m telling you now that I will not be competing for one. I will not allow you, Malcolm, or anyone else for that matter, get the opportunity this season to run around and talk about headlining Pain for Pride. That is all your greedy people want anyway. That stupid spotlight that does nothing for anyone in the long run. It’s ridiculous and thankfully I’m now in a position to put a stop to it. I will leave you with that to think about.
(Drake lowers the microphone and the New Eden theme music begins to play once again. For once in his life, Malcolm Jones is completely speechless, and even the crowd finds themselves unable to really react. New Eden leaves the stage, leaving a baffled EAW World Champion in the ring.)
(Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Good Molecules cruelty free skincare products. Affordable, gentle on skin, and good for all skin types, Good Molecules are now available online at ULTA and available in stores soon!)
(Voltage fades back in and we waste no time getting into the first match of the night! Bella Braxton is standing in the middle of the ring and she raises her microphone up.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Virtual Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
(The theme music of one of Voltage’s newest signee’s begins to blast across the public address system of World 1 Theatre.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST… BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY TYSON ZANE… FROM BROOKLYN, NEW YORK… WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUNDS… HE IS DANTE HERNANDEZ!!!!
(The crowd gives the newcomers a mixed reaction, but Dante and Tyson pay them no attention. Together, they begin to make their way down to the ring.)
James Peters: Welcome back to Voltage! We’ve had one… interesting start to our program tonight. We’ve had one hell of an explosive start to our program tonight. Malcolm Jones, the new EAW World Champion, was out here to celebrate his victory, but was quickly interrupted by the Grand Rampage winner, Drake King, and the rest of New Eden. To make a long story short, Drake has vowed that there will be no Voltage main event this year for Pain for Pride, leaving whoever is left holding the championship after Battle of Egypt concludes without a match for the biggest show of the year!
Rich Russillo: There’s no doubt that New Eden is about to make the rest of us miserable for the foreseeable future, but let’s turn our attention to the team making their way to the ring right now. A couple of weeks ago, Dante Hernandez and Tyson Zane made their debut for Voltage against the Showdown team of Strawberry Steve and The Woogieman, in what would end up being a losing effort. A lot of people thought the Showdown team getting the win was a huge upset, and quite frankly, it surprised me as well.
Persephone: Yawn. Who fucking cares? This match is really about to be a waste of fucking time, and my time is precious.
James Peters: As always, you are just a positive ray of sunshine aren’t you, Seph?
(Dante has gotten in the ring, as Tyson stands on the apron. The two partners talk strategy, as Dante’s theme music fades out. A few seconds later, “If” by Janet Jackson begins to play.)
Persephone: :skip: Damn. How many themes is this bitch gunna have in a single season?
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! FROM BRITISH COLUMBIA… WEIGHING IN AT 130 POUNDS… PLEASE WELCOME… LISA WREN!!!!
(Once again, the reaction from the virtual crowd is mixed, but there’s a few more cheers than boos. Lisa walks onto the stage, hands on hips, and takes a moment to enjoy the crowd’s reaction.)
Rich Russillo: I’ll tell you what, last weekend at Grand Rampage, Lisa Wren left everything inside the ring in her quest to become the New Breed Champion. Absolutely everyone wrote Lisa off, but she came so close to pulling off the upset and stopping Andre Walker from breaking Jamie O’Hara’s legendary record as New Breed Champion.
James Peters: It was one of the best performances of Lisa’s career and even though she came up short last weekend, I hope she’s proud of her efforts. I know all of us wanted to see Lisa bring home the last remaining tri-branded title to Voltage :wow:
Persephone: Speak for yourself, bozo. The day Lisa Wren wins a title in EAW, is the day this company really has gone into the shitter and that’s saying a lot considering how awful the product is right now unless Rex is wrestling.
(Lisa is on the apron now and has sat herself down on top of the turnbuckles. Tyson has taken his place on the ground, and Dante looks ready to go. The referee checks with both competitors and they signal that they are ready to go!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Lisa Wren begins this match by standing on the top turnbuckle! She flies off, looking to hit Dante with a huge crossbody BUT HE CATCHES HER IN THE AIR! Lisa struggles against Dante, hammering him in the back with her fist but he immediately slams her down into the mat! Dante runs the ropes and comes back at Lisa with a nice looking leg drop across the throat and he immediately goes for the cover!!!
James Peters: LISA POWERS OUT! Dante immediately begins punching Lisa in her face, forcing her to cover up, but it’s no use! Dante is unloading, looking to score his first win here in EAW, and he’s not going to hold anything back tonight! He finally snatches Lisa up and whips her across the ring! Lisa manages to duck underneath the clothesline attempt and she leaps in the air, landing on the ropes, and using them as a springboard! She connects with a back elbow, that staggers Dante, and Lisa follows up with a dropkick! Dante is down and he immediately rolls to the outside of the ring!
Rich Russillo: Lisa doesn’t waste any time! She goes back up and launches herself off, this time connecting with the crossbody! Dante Hernandez is down and Lisa Wren is on fire right now! She points at Tyson Zane, warning him to keep his distance, before grabbing Dante up! She slams his face off the ring apron and tries to roll him back inside, but Dante fires back with an elbow that catches Lisa right in the temple! Lisa is off balance and that allows Dante to recover and he nearly takes her head off with a massive discus clothesline!!!!
Persephone: You know, to see someone actually get beheaded on this program would literally make my whole life.
James Peters: :comeagain: Wut?
Rich Russillo: Dante rolls back into the ring to break up the count, but now he’s back to the outside. He kicks Lisa in the ribs a few times before picking her up and dropping her face first across the top of the steel ring steps! This guy is going to fit in great on Voltage with all the aggression he is showing in the opening minutes of this bout.
Persephone: I mean, dropping someone on the steps isn’t that big of a deal. Maybe if he shot Lisa with a gun or stabbed her with a knife, I would be more impressed.
Rich Russillo: :whoa: No knives!!!!
James Peters: We definitely do not allow knives here in Elite Answers Wrestling, but nevertheless, Dante has rolled Lisa back into the ring and is keeping her grounded with a headlock. It’s smart strategy to try and wear Lisa down, keeping her from running around the ring. Lisa has really come into her own this season and continues getting better with each match, and it’s very important for Dante to understand that and respect that.
Persephone: There is literally nothing to respect about Lisa Wren :mjlol: She is fucking trash, bro.
Rich Russillo: I respect the fact she’s fighting back against Dante Hernandez right now. The crowd is starting to come around and urge Lisa on as she fights her way back to her feet! Dante still has that headlock cinched in, but look! Lisa grabs him by the head and drops down into a sitting position! She just freed herself with a nice jawbreaker and she quickly rolls over on Dante for the cover!
Persephone: Oh look. He kicked out. Great.
James Peters: Lisa is quick to pepper Dante with those vicious forearm shots before she pulls him up and Irish whips him into the corner! Lisa charges forward, but Dante is quick to move! Lisa crashes into the corner and Dante kicks her right in the back of the head! Lisa eats a face full of turnbuckle padding and slumps to the mat! Dante grabs onto the ropes and begins stomping Lisa in the head! The referee is quick to jump in, giving the rookie a warning, but Dante doesn’t stop! He continues to stomp away on Lisa and now he’s put all his weight down on Lisa’s head! Dante is standing on her head!
Referee: (off-mic) Come on Dante! One… two… three… four…
Rich Russillo: Dante lets go of the ropes and lets off Lisa, but that’s just temporary! Dante checks his ring positioning and he locks Lisa into a crossface! Lisa Wren is trapped in that submission hold and Dante has her right where she can’t reach the ropes! Lisa might have to tap out and what a statement that would make for Dante Hernandez!
James Peters: Well I think Dante made a mistake with this. He should have pulled Lisa towards the center of the ring, because she’s stretching her foot out, desperately trying to get it on the ropes. The referee sees this going on, but Lisa is just a few centimeters shy! She’s being forced to dig deep now, as Dante wrenches back on her neck, and Lisa just can’t come up with the break! The referee asks her if she wants to quit, but Lisa continues to fight! She uses what strength is left and throws her leg, and her foot hits the rope! Lisa Wren got her foot on the bottom rope!
Rich Russillo: A frustrated Dante lets go of the submission BUT LOOK! HE TAKES LISA BY THE ARM AND DRAGS HER TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! HE DROPS DOWN FOR ANOTHER CROSSFACE BUT LISA! LISA WITH A REVERSAL AND SHE’S GOT DANTE IN A CRUCIFIX STYLE PIN!
Persephone: Oh. He kicked out.
Rich Russillo: Absolutely! A shocked Dante Hernandez managed to kick out and he scrambles back to his feet! He goes to stomp on Lisa, but she’s rolled onto the apron of the ring and looks to pull herself up! Dante tries to clothesline her off the apron, but she ducks and darts between the ropes, driving her shoulder into his midsection! Dante is doubled over and LISA WREN WITH THE SUNSET FLIP INTO A PIN!!!!
James Peters: NO! DANTE ROLLS RIGHT THROUGH, LEAPS UP, AND CATCHES LISA IN THE FACE WITH A DROP KICK! HE QUICKLY RUNS THE ROPES AND NAILS LISA WITH A BIG BOOT RIGHT AS SHE WAS SITTING BACK UP! DANTE HERNANDEZ PULLS LISA UP, HOOKS HER, AND ABSOLUTELY DESTROYS HER WITH A MICHINOKU DRIVER! THIS HAS TO BE IT!!!!
Persephone: :noah: But it’s not :noah:
Rich Russillo: HUGE KICK OUT BY LISA AND DANTE CAN NOT BELIEVE IT!
James Peters: He thought for sure he had the match won with that picture perfect Michinoku Driver!!!
Persephone: Yeah but unfortunately for all of us who want to move on with our lives, Lisa just had to kick out and prolong the suffering.
Rich Russillo: On the outside of the ring, Tyson Zane is urging his partner to finish the match! This crowd has gotten behind Lisa, and they want to see her somehow pull this off! Dante pulls Lisa up and he sends her into the ropes! HE CATCHES LISA ON THE REBOUND! DANTE SPECIAL! BLUE THUNDER BO-
James Peters: NO! LISA REVERSED IN MID-AIR! HURRICANRANA BRINGS DANTE DOWN TO THE MAT! LISA FOLLOWS UP WITH A STANDING CORKSCREW DROPKICK RIGHT TO DANTE’S STOMACH! SHE PULLS HIM UP AND THERE SHE GOES! SWINGING RELEASE FISHERMAN SUPLEX! LISA WREN PUTS DANTE DOWN WITH HER FINISHER AND GOES FOR THE COVER!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER… LISA WREN!
(“It” by Janet Jackson kicks up once again, and the crowd gives Lisa a nice pop. She gets to her feet and lets the referee her hand, and she’s clearly happy over her victory.)
James Peters: What a great win for Lisa Wren over a newcomer in Dante Hernandez who clearly came to win tonight. Dante put forth one hell of an effort, even got himself in position to finish off Lisa, but she came up with a clever counter to ‘Dante’s Special’, that turned the match in her favor.
Rich Russillo: It really did. Lisa looked great out there tonight and scores a nice win as we make our way towards Pain for Pride.
(Lisa rolls out of the ring and makes sure she bumps her shoulder against Tyson Zane.)
James Peters: Hold on. Lisa just bumped the shoulder of Tyson as she was making her way to the ramp, and he doesn’t look too happy about it. We know how fiery Lisa’s personality is sometimes, and how she feels about intergender wrestling, and this could get pretty interesting!
Rich Russillo: :lupe: Lisa is mouthing off to Tyson now, and he seems to be getting more and more irritated by her. TYSON FINALLY SNAPS AND CLOTHESLINES LISA TO THE MAT! TYSON PUTS THE BOOTS TO LISA AND DANTE HAS ROLLED OUT OF THE RING NOW! DANTE TAKES A CHEAP SHOT AT LISA AS WELL! FRUSTRATION OVER HOW THE MATCH ENDED, PERHAPS, AND TYSON JERKS LISA UP BY THE HAIR! TYSON WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX ON LISA WREN! THAT’S HIS FINISHER!
Persephone: Hold up…
(A woman is seen running down the ramp, blonde hair flying behind her, steel chair in hand.)
James Peters: TYSON PULLS LISA UP FOR ANOTHER BELLY TO BELLY BUT SOMEONE JUST CRACKED A STEEL CHAIR ACROSS HIS BACK!
Rich Russillo: I THINK THAT’S KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR!
Persephone: :mjlol: Well she looks… different.
Rich Russillo: Well, she’s wearing normal clothes for one…
Persephone: And her hair is a little more blonde, and some other things are different :mjlol:
James Peters: WELL KESINGTEN JUST TOOK A CHAIR TO THE BACK OF DANTE HERNANDEZ AS WELL! WHY ON EARTH DID SHE JUST COME TO THE RING AND SAVE LISA WREN?!?!
(Kensingten drops the chair, satisfied that the two men aren’t going to mess with Lisa anymore, and the crowd doesn’t know what to think. No one really knows what to think. Kensingten takes a look at Lisa, who is struggling into a sitting position, and the two women lock eyes. Lisa appears just as confused as everyone else, and that prompts Kensingten to shrug.)
Persephone: Well this is mad weird…
James Peters: Weird indeed when you consider the history these two women share. They don’t like each other.
Persephone: Despite all that, Kensingten did save Lisa from a Saudi prison, though!
James Peters: Only because she lost a match to Candice Blair :skip:
Rich Russillo: Well Kensingten has been gone for awhile. She hasn’t been seen since losing to Bronson Daniels on Showdown awhile back. I wonder what’s going on?
(It’s a question that would linger as Kensingten began to make her way up the ramp, and Voltage faded into a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for “Queen of Meth”, a new documentary about Lori Arnold and the meth empire she created in the 1980s. Catch it now streaming on Discovery Plus!)
(Voltage returns from break and fades into the backstage area. Lisa Wren is seen storming down the hallway, looking for someone. It doesn’t take her long to find who she’s looking for, because Kensingten Calhoun-Astor is waiting for her.)
Lisa Wren: What the hell was that you cac-ass, whack ass bitch? I didn’t need you coming down there and getting involved in my business.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Are you sure? It seems like you were getting your butt kicked and could have used the help.
Lisa Wren: Why the fuck are you even here, Kensingten? I thought Bronson done ran you out of this company for good.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Kensi. Just call me Kensi going forward, and no, Bronson Daniels didn’t run me out of here. I think it goes without saying this has been one of the worst years of my life, but I’ve come too far to give up on my career now. A lot of the stuff that came out of my mouth felt like it was scripted, written by other people and I had no control over it :troll:, but I just want to put all that bull behind me and move forward.
Lisa Wren: Okay bitch, that’s great, but you’re still a racist piece of shit in my opinion and if you ever stick your nose where it doesn’t belong again, Imma knock you flat on your ass. Got it?
(Kensi, as she now wants to be called, practically rolls her eyes to the back of her head.)
Kensi: Here’s the thing, Lisa, I’m not a racist piece of crap and I’m not going to let you treat me like one either. A white person could breathe in your direction and you would somehow make everything about that into a racially motivated rant, which really makes you come off as someone who is a rather one-dimensional talker with nothing else to say, but I digress. While I’m not going to act like I’ve never said some questionable things, and I’m not about to act like I haven’t hurt a lot of people in the past with my words and actions, I’m NOT going to allow the rest of the world to continue condemning me for it. I’m here to make a living just like everyone else, and I have apologized time and time again for my past. I’m not going to do it anymore, and that’s something you and the rest of the world will just have to accept.
(This time it’s Lisa who can’t help but roll her eyes.)
Lisa Wren: Man, I really have better things to do with my time than listen to generic blonde wrestler 241.
Kensi: You’re the one who came looking for me, remember?
(Lisa opens her mouth to reply, but thinks better of it. She just doesn’t want to deal with Kensi anymore right now, so she glares at her. Kensi raises an eyebrow, almost as if she is daring Lisa to do something, but eventually, Lisa just walks off.)
(Voltage fades elsewhere.)
[SCREENBAR – World 1 Theatre’s parking lot]
(The camera opens up to New Eden in the parking lot getting ready to leave the World 1 Theatre. Neither Drake King, Minerva or Myles were booked for matches and after Drake announced that “there will be no Voltage Pain for Pride main event” at the beginning of Voltage it seemed like their work was done for the night, so likely to the joy of the EAW universe, the three took their leave. Their night wouldn’t end how they expected though, as someone was waiting for them.)
(All three members of New Eden would be caught by surprise as the Visual Prophet is seen standing right in front of them with a huge grin on his face.)
Drake King: :comeagain:
The Visual Prophet: :shaq:
Myles: :skip: In the parking lot? Really?
Minerva: How long were you waiting here?
The Visual Prophet: I know y’all didn’t think it’d be that easy to get rid of me. I told you, Drake. You’re mine still. You can come up with new gimmicks, attack me backstage and try to end my career, eliminate me from the Grand Rampage match, but you’ll never escape me. One match and you spent half the season afraid of just hearing my name, and now in just a matter of weeks we’re gonna do it again, and you know what’s gonna happen right? It don’t matter how many people you have standing by your side telling you everything you wanna hear. You’ll always belong to yours truly.
(Drake remains silent for a bit, clearly still slightly taken aback by the Visual Prophet’s sudden appearance and return to Voltage.)
Drake King: Grand Rampage should’ve told you everything you needed to hear. Things clearly changed between Pain for Pride and now. New Eden did exactly what we said we’d do at Grand Rampage and you were in that match even when you weren’t supposed to be. We took you out of that match. You were in our way and we made sure that changed. Battle of Egypt won’t be any different. When we took you out of action I made it clear that I was done letting you get inside my head. I was done being too afraid to even say your name, and if it takes more than a kick to the skull to take you out then that’s fine. I don’t plan on leaving our work unfinished. Things won’t end the same way they did at Pain for Pride, and if you really want another taste of what New Eden can do after we made your addition to the Grand Rampage match meaningless, then we can give you that.
The Visual Prophet: Once my bitch, always my bitch. I saw the look on your face at Grand Rampage. I wasn’t even supposed to be in that match and I still walked down that ramp and cleaned house, and that’s just a fraction of the shit you’re capable of when you’re me. You’d know. You saw first hand what I can do Drake and you had the opportunity to be standing right by my side as I did what I do best, everything. I was as loyal as I could be and you still found a way to fuck everything up. Instead of letting Drizzy and Vizzy become the best tag team of all time you threw away everything we built together and a year later your mistakes are still coming back to bite you. I thought Prophetic Visions would be enough but some people just don’t learn. You spent damn near an entire year facing the side effects and now look at you, preparing yourself for round two with Vizzy. You must’ve forgot. I can do anything and I *have* done everything. Biggest show of the year I had you running from Soulja Boy, and now you want round two? Myles and Minerva won’t be able to save you at Battle of Egypt, not when you’re in the ring with Viz. They sacrificed themselves so you could win the Grand Rampage but no amount of sacrifices could ever save you from the ass whooping you got coming. Battle of Egypt is right around the corner, and if y’all let Drake enter that ring he’s a dead man. Deep down inside Myles and Minerva know exactly what you’re in for, and come Battle of Egypt it’ll only take a matter of minutes for New Eden to go from the other stable in EAW led by someone known for not being trustworthy to just another tag team.
Minerva: After Grand Rampage, are you really in the position to try and threaten us? We lived up to our words. We promised to take the Grand Rampage match away from everyone and we did that. That includes you Viz, and not only did New Eden win the Grand Rampage, but New Eden eliminated the Visual Prophet. New Eden has gotten the better of the Visual Prophet time and time again. What makes this any different?
Myles: You of all people should understand that whatever you’re looking to gain at Battle of Egypt isn’t coming. Prophetic Visions happened. We all saw it, and we can’t change what happened at Pain for Pride, but history isn’t going to repeat itself. That was a different Drake King that went through Prophetic Visions, one that had no place in this company in the first place.
(Drake just shakes his head.)
Drake King: You really don’t know what you’re getting yourself into, Viz. You’re right. I’ve seen first hand what you’re capable of. I spent the better part of last season seeing what you could do whether it be as your tag team partner or as your opponent. I’ve seen what you do to people that get on your bad side. I’ve seen what you do to people just for standing against you. Once upon a time I WAS one of those people, but if you think history is going to repeat itself after the season I’ve had then you’re in for a surprise at Battle of Egypt. New Eden has one goal. We’re here to change this industry and nothing more, and after these past few weeks YOU know what WE can do. You know what we’re capable of, and if we can take you out of action and eliminate you from the Grand Rampage match, what’s stopping us from finishing where we left off and actually ending your career? You don’t deserve to be here, Viz. Pain for Pride was almost a year ago but week after week New Eden continues to prove that there’s nothing we can’t overcome, including you. It doesn’t matter how many times you try to get back up or how much you try to remind me of what happened at Pain for Pride. In the end you’re going to end up right where you were a few weeks ago, only next time you won’t be coming back.
Myles: I don’t know why you came back from our attack, anyway. This company is going to change thanks to New Eden, and Viz you’re not going to stop our change. Every single time you’ve stood in our way we disposed of you. Nothing’s gonna change this time, next time, or any other time you try to come back. You could’ve just stayed down, went home, and called it a career. Instead you just HAD to come back, all so you could be put down once again by New Eden. Is that it? Is that why you came back? Just to keep getting knocked back down?
The Visual Prophet: Shit, if y’all believe in yourselves this much then you can put your money where your mouth is and try to take me out right now. I didn’t come here for nothing, after all. I’m here for him.
(The Visual Prophet points at Drake King, and Myles and Minerva at one another before turning their attention back to the Visual Prophet.)
Minerva: You’re outnumbered, you do know that, right? There’s three of us, and it looks like you didn’t even bring your “Beloved Brother”.
Myles: What, should we be expecting Serena Bennett to come out of thin air and attack us?
The Visual Prophet: Nope. Just Big Viz.
(Finally, Drake speaks up once again.)
Drake King: We’ll see you at Battle of Egypt.
(Not willing to entertain him, the trio begins to walk past the Visual Prophet, all while Viz still has that grin on his face. As New Eden just barely passes the Visual Prophet, Viz grabs Drake by the arm, turning him around. Drake immediately goes for a strike, but Viz would duck under it before picking up a lead pipe he had on the ground hidden behind a car, before hitting Drake in the midsection with it. Myles would grab the Visual Prophet, but he’d suffer the same fate as Viz swings the lead pipe into his midsection. The same would happen to Minerva, and as she drops down to all fours Viz would slam the lead pipe onto her back.)
(Myles attempts to get back up, but he’s hit once again in the midsection before being hit in the back with the midsection. Viz then goes back and forth, hitting both Minerva and Myles with the lead pipe as both Elitists tried to free themselves from this assault by the Visual Prophet, in the end to no avail. Viz would swing the lead pipe at Drake once again as the Grand Rampage winner used a car to try and get back up, and Drake manages to catch it in an attempt to wrestle it away from Viz, but after everything New Eden went through at Grand Rampage there was no way Drake would have the strength to do so. The Visual Prophet kicks Drake in the midsection causing Drake to drop to both knees, and Viz swings the lead pipe across his face, causing him to drop. Clearly satisfied with his work after taking out the Elitists that took him out of action following Reckless Wiring, the Visual Prophet finally leaves the area. With New Eden bloody and bruised following the lead pipe attack, the camera fades to black.)
(Voltage returns as we see a shot of Bella Braxton standing in the center of the ring holding an EAW-branded microphone. She raises it closer to her lips, before announcing the following match.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…
Bella Braxton & Crowd: ONE FALLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(‘Mississippi Queen’ by Mountain plays through the AP System in the arena, as Greg Voltaire walks out through the curtains, wearing his regular gear; however he’s wearing a cap that reads “supper tuff dewd” on the front. The crowd boos the living shit out of this man)
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) Now c’mon, what did I do to you?
Greg Voltaire (off-mic) :dame:
James Peters: And here comes the man who… recently got attacked by Shane Gates. The reason I hesitate to say this, is because of the man who’s next to me on the commentary desk. With the recent viewer spike here on Voltage, I need to let all new viewers know; Rich Russillo has a… personal distaste with Shane Gates.
Rich Russillo: Personal distaste is a very weak word to describe it. Shane Gates is a psychopath, which makes rooting for Greg Voltaire even easier. A man who isn’t afraid of Shane, like myself, and a man who isn’t afraid to defend his people! A true, humble goat.
James Peters: :wow: Well, sure Rich. Greg Voltaire debuted not long ago here in EAW, and his first enemy has been Shane Gates. After being targeted by Lizzie The Doll whilst having a vacation backstage, Greg Voltaire has tried to get even with Shane by ATTACKING Lizzie.
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… hailing from San Francisco, California… weighing in at 223 pounds… HE IS THE GOLDEN EXPEDITIONER… GREEEEEEEEEEEG VOOOOLTAIIIIIIIIRE!!!
(Greg Voltaire climbs onto the apron, and enters the ring, before running the ropes multiple times, and throwing his hat into the crowd… only for it to be thrown back to him. Greg sighs, before kicking it out of the ring, as his theme song fades out.)
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) Despicable.
(‘Blow’ by Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars begins to play through the speakers, as the crowd reaction is completely flipped on its head; a loud cheer resonating with the audience, as Envy Ellis walks out through the curtains with a grin on her face.)
James Peters: And here enters his opponent! Making her EAW debut here tonight, many may view her as some rookie, a nobody, but tonight she’s going to make sure people know she’s more deserving of a spot on this roster than anyone else; someone like Greg Voltaire. And that’s an achievable goal, she just has to get through here… capable… opponent here tonight.
Rich Russillo: Is that Greg Voltaire slander I’m hearing? I don’t like the tone of your voice, bustah, and I’ll need to correct you on that. Greg Voltaire is a perfect first opponent for anyone; challenging, tough, a big obstacle. It’s better than facing off against someone like, I don’t know, SOSA Henderson. We’re not rocketeering someone to the top, nor driving them into the mud. Tranquilo!
Persephone: Rocketeering? Tranquilo:
Rich Russillo: That’s what I said. And very soon, I’m going to be saying “Greg Voltaire wins!” in joy, my love. I’m sure you love seeing me happy, don’t you?
Persephone: Grass is blue.
Rich Russillo: :oh:
James Peters: Well as you two argue, I’ll remind everyone; Envy Ellis picked up a victory in 5 seconds not long ago, and despite not being in EAW, that’s something you have to take into consideration. That’s a major accomplishment to have, and only shows off raw talent. Will the same happen here tonight?
Bella Braxton: And introducing his opponent… hailing in from Washington, DC, weighing in at 115 pounds… SHE… IS… ENVYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY EEEEELLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSS!!!
(The crowd cheers as Envy Ellis slides into the ring. She gets into Greg’s face, before nudging past him and going to the middle rope. She poses, before hopping down into her corner, and waiting for the bell to ring.)
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) :whew:
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: AND WE ARE UNDERWA-
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) WAIT!!!!
(Greg Voltaire puts his arms in the air to signal he isn’t going to attack Envy, a friendly gesture, as he slowly approaches her.)
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) Now listen! I know we’ve had a very rough back and forth, an exchange of some mean words, you know the criteria. But I have a solution…
(Greg Voltaire reaches into his singlet, and the crowd groans in disgust, only for Greg to pull out a $2 dollar bill, and hand it to Envy Ellis.)
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) What do you say??
James Peters: This is a… very strange tactic to say the least… but it looks like it’s working, as Envy Ellis is taking the $2 dollars… is she going to lie down? OH, I GUESS NOT! AS SHE IMMEDIATELY SWINGS GREG TO THE GROUND LOOKING FOR AN ARMDRAG, COULD SHE BE ENDING THIS MATCH QUICKLY TOO?? ‘ENVY ARMBAR’- BUT GREG VOLTAIRE ROLLS TO HIS FEET, HE WAS SO CLOSE TO LOSING IN JUST A FEW SECONDS THIS WEEK!
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) WAIT! WAIT! Listen… As a respectable GENTLEMAN, I don’t wanna hit a girl…
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) But… I NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT MY FEET!!!
James Peters: ‘COLD FEET’!!! THE STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI, A SIGNATURE MOVE OF GREG’S!! AND IT CONNECTS, ENVY ELLIS IS DOWN!!!!
Rich Russillo: YES! AN AMAZING TACTIC FROM SHANE GATES’ ARCH NEMESIS, AND THE MAN WHO SHOULD PUT THAT PSYCHOTIC SON OF A BITCH AWAY FOR GOOD, AND NOW HE QUICKLY SCURRIES INTO THE COVER!!
Rich Russillo: FUCK! BUT IT’S JUST A ONE COUNT, AS THIS NEWCOMER KICKS OUT! :noah: WAIT, BUT GREG VOLTAIRE LIFTS ENVY UP! HE’S LOOKING TO END THIS MATCH QUICKLY HITTING A HUGE WASTELAND-
James Peters: BUT ENVY ELLIS QUICKLY DROPS DOWN TO HER FEET, AND GOES FOR A SWINGING NECKBREAKER- HOWEVER GREG QUICKLY FIGHTS OUT OF IT, SPINNING ALL THE WAY AROUND, AND PUSHING HER BACK INTO THE ROPES! AND NOW GREG VOLTAIRE WITH A BIG BOOT-
Rich Russillo: ENVY ELLIS SIDESTEPS THE BIG BOOT, AND GREG VOLTAIRE’S LEG GETS HUNG OVER THE TOP ROPE! GREG VOLTAIRE STARTS TO REACH FOR ENVY, BUT SHE’S WAY TOO FAR AWAY TO GET AHOLD OF, AND NOW SHE’S THE ONE IN CONTROL, GRABBING **HIS** ARM! NO, DON’T DO IT!!! OH GOD!!! ENVY WITH A HUGE WRISTLOCK TAKEDOWN TO GREG VOLTAIRE, AND HE INSTANTLY GRABS HOLD OF HIS ELBOW!!
Persephone: Why is Greg Voltaire all of a sudden your favorite?
Rich Russillo: :mackie:
Rich Russillo: Oh no, not again. If one wasn’t enough, Envy Ellis is following up with ANOTHER wristlock maneuver to the arm, this time just slamming it straight into the mat!! But that’s not all… ARM DRAGON SCREW! A DRAGON SCREW TO DO DAMAGE TO THE ELBOW INSTEAD OF THE KNEE, AND NOW GREG VOLTAIRE RETRACTS HIS ARM; HE’S HAD ENOUGH! YES GREG, ROLL OUT! RETURN TO SAFETY!
James Peters: So far in her debut match, Envy Ellis has put on quite the showing; not dealing with Greg Voltaire’s… well, they’re either mind games or stupidity, but she’s not putting up with it! And hey, she got a free 2 dollars out of it also. And now, instead of risking life and limb for a dive, Envy Ellis exits onto the apron- OH! NEVERMIND, MAYBE THE DIVE WOULD’VE BEEN WORTH IT, AS NOW GREG VOLTAIRE TAKES HER DOWN WITH A HUGE ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO HER FEET, MAKING HER SLIP ONTO HER BACK, HITTING THE APRON – THE HARDEST PART OF THE ENTIRE RING – AND HITTING HARD!
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) Ha! Brain too big for you, Envy.
Rich Russillo: :goat: And now Greg Voltaire showing Envy Ellis who’s the man around her-
Persephone: Don’t even compare Greg to Rex.
Rich Rusillo: Okay… who’s the SECOND PLACE man around here, as he mocks her after taking her off the ground! But it won’t be long before she recovers, and he knows this, so he pulls her off the apron… THEN IRISH WHIPS HER STRAIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS! SHE HITS HER BACK RIGHT AGAINST THE METAL, AND NOW GREG IS TAKING CONTROL!
Referee: (off-mic) Gregory Allen Smith Voltaire, get your anal region back into this ring!
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) :wtf: That’s not my name!
Referee: (off-mic) I don’t care, just do it!
James Peters: Of course, the referee has to alert them to get back into the ring, otherwise he’d begin the start of his count; and whilst I’m sure Greg would happily take that, he appears to want a decisive victory over Envy, now grabbing her by the ar, and rolling her into the ring!
Crowd: WO-MAN BEATER! 👏👏👏👏👏
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) Hey, it was in the contract! Besides, I haven’t used my hands! It’s not like this company isn’t an intergender one anyway, quit the double standards.
James Peters: Greg Voltaire appears to be getting mad at the crowd; allowing them to rile him up, which I’m sure that’s what they’re trying to do here. Luckily for him, it doesn’t distract him enough to keep him occupied, and he climbs to the top rope… Envy Ellis insights… HE LEAPS AND HITS A HUGE MISSILE DROPKICK TO ENVY’S CHEST, BOUNCING HER BACK STRAIGHT INTO THE MAT! NOW GREG VOLTAIRE SLIDES INTO THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: A kick out from Envy Ellis!! Lifting the shoulder up, and Greg goes bug-eyed!
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) No, that is the BEST Missile Drop… you know what? It’s fine! I’ll just hit it again!
Rich Russillo: AS! HE! SHOULD! GREG VOLTAIRE CLIMBS THE TURNBUCKLES ONCE AGAIN, AS ENVY ELLIS SLOWLY RECOVERS… AND HE GOES FOR IT AGAIN- WAIT NO, NOT A DROPKICK! GREG HITS A DIVING EYE POKE!!! :damn:
James Peters: OH AND NOW HE’S PLAYING DIRTY! THE REFEREE IS FORCED TO INTERFERE, PUSHING GREG AWAY, BUT THE DAMAGE MAY BE DONE, AS THE SECOND HE’S FORCED TO LET THEM FIGHT… HE ROLLS HER UP! IT MAY BE OVE-
Rich Russillo: NO! ENVY FLIPS THE PRESSURE ONTO GREG’S SHOULDERS!
Rich Russillo: BUT GREG GETS THE SHOULDER UP! ENVY, RUNNING ON EYES SHE CAN BARELY SEE OUT OF, GETS BACK TO HER FEET AND STUMBLES TO THE CORNER! GREG VOLTAIRE CHASES AFTER HER, BUT SHE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY, AND GREG GOES HEAD-FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!! HE STUMBLES FORWARD WITH DAMAGE TO THE HEAD, BEFORE GETTING KICKED IN THE GUT!
James Peters: DESPITE THE WEIGHT DIFFERENCE, ENVY ELLIS LIFTS GREG VOLTAIRE UP INTO THE AIR INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION, BEFORE SLAMMING HIM DOWN STRAIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! ‘DC’ CONNECTS!!! GREG DROPS TO HIS KNEES AND HOLDS ONTO HIS BACK!
Rich Russillo: AND NOW ENVY DASHES BACK OVER TO GREG, AND GRABS BOTH OF HIS ARMS… DOUBLE ARM DDT! A KNEELING DOUBLE ARM DDT DRIVES GREG VOLTAIRE HEAD FIRST INTO THE MAT, BUT SHE HOLDS ONTO HIS LEFT ARM! SHE ROLLS TO THE SIDE, HOLDING ONTO THE ARM, BEFORE HITTING ANOTHER DRAGON SCREW, SNAPPING THE ELBOW, BEFORE FOLLOWING UP WITH A HUGE KNEE DROP TO THE ARM; SINGLING IT OUT AS A TARGET, AND IT’S CLEAR THIS IS EFFECTING GREG! :lupe: HE MAY BE IN A BAD POSITION HERE!
James Peters: ENVY ISN’T DONE THOUGH, AS SHE GRABS GREG BY HIS HAIR AND STANDS UP WITH HIM, FACING THE ROPES… I’VE DONE MY STUDY, AND PERHAPS NEXT IT COULD BE… IT IS! THE SPRINGBOARD BULLDOG-
Rich Russillo: BUT GREG CATCHES HER IN THE POWERBOMB POSITION WITH ONE ARM :damn:!!!! AND THEN HE TURNS AROUND WITH HER, AIMING TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLES HE WAS JUST THROWN INTO!
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT!
Rich Russillo: ‘PROPER POSTURE’!!!! THE BUCKLE BOMB OF HIS OWN TO ENVY ELLIS, AND INSTEAD OF DROPPING TO HER KNEES, SHE DROPS DOWN INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE CORNER; PROBABLY DUE TO BEING SLAMMED INTO THE STEEL STEPS!
James Peters: HOWEVER GREG ISN’T DONE HERE, AS HE TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK… OH NO, WHAT IS HE DOING HERE?? OH MY GOD, NO, NOT TO A WOMAN GREG! BE THE GENTLEMAN YOU CLAIM YOU ARE!!!
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) BRONCO BUSTER!!!!!!!!
James Peters: AND IT CONNECTS! THE BRONCO BUSTER TO ENVY ELLIS, AND NOW HE’S BOUNCING UP AND DOWN! THIS IS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING BEHAVIOR FROM GREG!
Rich Russillo: WHATEVER IT TAKES TO WIN THE MATCH, GREG VOLTAIRE WILL DO IT! AND HE DID EXACTLY THAT! HE ROLLS AWAY FROM ENVY ELLIS, AND GETS BACK TO HIS FEET, BEFORE GRABBING HER BY THE WRIST AND DRAGGING HER ACROSS THE RING; HE’S LOOKING FOR AN IRISH WHIP-
Referee: (off-mic) WAIT!!! WHAT THE HELL IS THAT???
Rich Russillo: Wait… DID ENVY PULL THE TURNBUCKLE DOWN!?!?!
James Peters: No… Greg did.
Rich Russillo: Pffft.
James Peters: BUT HANG ON A SECOND, THIS HAS BACKFIRED AS GREG WASN’T EXPECTING THE REFEREE TO NOTICE! THE SIDE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP FROM ENVY ELLIS, TRANSITIONING INTO A MOUNTED SLEEPER HOLD! GREG VOLTAIRE IS GONNA PASS OUT!!! HIS OXYGEN IS BEING CUT OFF!
Rich Russillo: DO NOT TAP, GREG! DON’T DO IT! IT ISN’T WORTH IT, NOT AT ALL! OH NO, HE’S GONNA TAP ISN’T HE??? HIS ARM WAVING UP AND DOWN, IT’S GOING TO SLAM AGAINST THE MAT REPEATEDLY ANY TIME SOON! AND IT DOES, HE TAP-
James Peters: NO! HE DOESN’T TAP! HE BEGINS TO CRAWL ACROSS THE RING, TOWARDS THE ROPES! LUCKILY FOR HIM, ENVY ISN’T TOO HEAVY ON HIS BACK, AND HE’S GOING TO GET THERE IN NO TIME! GREG VOLTAIRE CONTINUES TO CRAWL-
Rich Russillo: HOWEVER ENVY ELLIS STANDS UP OFF OF GREG, AND GRABS HIM BY THE BOOT, AND PULLS HIM CLOSER TO THE CENTER- NO! GREG ROLLS TO HIS BACK, AND KICKS HER DIRECTLY IN THE JAW! ENVY DROPS TO THE FLOOR, AND GREG GETS RIGHT BACK UP!
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT!
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD! NO WAY, HE’S GOING TO DO A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT!!! WHAT A GOAT-
James Peters: BUT ENVY TUGS ON THE ROPES! GREG SLIPS AND HITS THE FLOOR, WHICH ALLOWS ENVY TO TRANSITION INTO A CRUCIFIX HOLD! AN AMAZING TRANSITION FROM ENVY!!!
Rich Russillo: HOLD ON!! HAHAHA, YES!!! GREG WAS LURING HER IN ALL ALONG! ‘COLD FEET’!!!! THE STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI CONNECTS ONCE MORE, MAYBE THIS TIME IT COULD FINISH HER OFF FOR GOOD! THE COVER!
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) Genius, I know.
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) :comeagain:
Rich Russillo: WHAT!?!?!?
James Peters: ENVY GETS THE SHOULDER UP! THE RESILIENCY PUT ON SHOW BY ENVY HERE IS INCREDIBLE, DESPITE BEING SEEMINGLY UNCONSCIOUS, SHE MANAGES TO KICK OUT TO SAVE THE MATCHUP FOR HERSELF TONIGHT! GREG VOLTAIRE STUMBLES BACK INTO THE CORNER, LOOKING CONFUSED AT HOW SHE KICKED OUT, HE THOUGHT HE HAD IT THERE! BUT GREG ISN’T DONE, AS HE QUICKLY SPRINTS FORWARD, AND CLOBBERS HER WITH A HUGE KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW!
Rich Russillo: ENVY ELLIS IS DOWN, GREG COULD COVER HER RIGHT NOW, BUT I’M MORE THAN CERTAIN HE’S LOOKING TO COMPLETELY END THE MATCH UP DEFINITIVELY, AS HE BACKS UP BACK INTO THE CORNER… HE’S CHARGING IT UP! HE’S MAKING THE X WITH HIS ARMS, IT COULD BE OVER RIGHT HERE!!
Greg Voltaire: (off-mic) ENVY ELLIS… YOU’RE GONNA GET THESE HANDS!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: :damn:!!!!
James Peters: GREG VOLTAIRE QUICKLY CHARGES FORWARD AND STRIKES ENVY ELLIS IN THE JAW WITH A HUGE ‘HAND OF GOD’!!! THE LIGHTNING FIST CONNECTS; WAIT, NO IT DOESN’T! ENVY COUNTERS WITH AN ARMDRAG, STRAIGHT INTO THE ARMBAR! ‘ENVY ARMBAR’ IS LOCKED IN! THERE’S NO WAY HE CAN GET OUT OF IT!
Rich Russillo: NO! NO! NOT NOW! GREG, FIGHT OUT OF IT! GREG LOOKS TO BEND HIS BODY TO GET HIS LEG ON THE ROPES, BUT HE CAN’T! HE’S ONLY DAMAGING HIS ARM EVEN MORE! GREG, SCREAMING AND CLAWING, HE MIGHT ACTUALLY TAP OUT THIS TIME! HEAVEN FORBID, STAY IN THIS GREG! YOU CAN’T LOSE TO ENVY WHEN YOU NEED TO SHOW SHANE WHO’S THE MAN-
James Peters: BUT IT’S TOO MUCH TO HANDLE FOR GREG! HE TAPS OUT! HE TAPS OUT! ENVY ELLIS IS THE WINNER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER VIA SUBMISSION… ENVYYYYYYYYYYYYYY EEEEEEELLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSS!!!!!!!
(The crowd erupts into cheers as ‘Blow’ by Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars hits the speakers. Envy Ellis slides off of Greg Voltaire, and rises back to her feet. The referee raises her arm, and declares her the winner.)
James Peters: It wasn’t in 5 seconds, despite trying, but she managed to submit her opponent! Using her finishing maneuver, then ending the match by almost snapping his arm in half! She promised she would do so, and she followed through on those claims; if he didn’t tap, he’d regret it, and he tapped.
Rich Russillo: This doesn’t mean that Shane Gates is at all better than Greg, don’t forget it. He tapped a few weeks ago too, this only means Greg’s victory over him will be intense, nerve racking… everything you love in a wrestling match! Of course, this week was a minor setback for him, but I’m sure he’ll recover.
Persephone: Why did you suddenly start thirsting over Greg Voltaire? I mean, out of everyone? You could’ve picked Rex McAllister, but you pick him… you really are down bad.
Rich Russillo: I’m up good, duh! I have you! 🙂
James Peters: Regardless of… personal beliefs… congratulations to Envy Ellis! Successful in her debut match; just the momentum she needs going forward, and if she keeps it up? Greatness will touch her tips in no time. First Greg Voltaire, who’s next? The start of a journey. :blessed:
(Envy Ellis climbs to the top rope, and poses whilst facing the crowd. They let out a huge roar of cheers back at her, as she celebrates the victory of her first match here in Elite Answers Wrestling. Voltage then fades out to commercial.)
(A commercial for Insurgency’s new restaurant begins to play; before cutting off prematurely, as it fades to a news clip of a restaurant in the California area burning down due to poor cooking.)
[SCREENBAR – Backstage]
(Fading in from obscure darkness, the area shown through the lens of the camera wouldn’t actually be that much different; a dark, obscure room, with the shadows of multiple items in the room only being slightly visible, not enough to make anything out, or to be able to tell what’s being shown through the lens of a camera. Small reflections of light bounces off the lens, however that’s the most shown in the opening seconds; most likely coming from underneath a door somewhere in the room. However something would be off, incredibly off, as it would become abundantly clear that the reflection of the light shouldn’t be on and off, and it would be clear if someone was turning lights off and on outside of the room. The flare being caused is because one of the shadows in the room is moving back and forth in between one spot to another, a confusing sight to see no matter what the context is. Could it be a human being, or could it be a piece of furniture? Or something else? It would soon become clear that it’s the former, as loud groaning is heard, and a voice speaks up.)
???: I know… you don’t need to keep repeating yourself… I SAID… I said I know. Repeating yourself isn’t going to solve anything, you know that right!?!? I know my mistakes!!! I know where i went wrong, and it’s been eight days and you are STILL dragging on about it! I had my plans, and they got interrupted; what more do you fucking want from me???
(The unknown voice would be familiar, however not too distinguishable, as in the background loud, VERY loud, white noise starts to flare up through the speakers of the camera, almost drowning out any distinct aspects of the voice; it just sounds like a regular, masculine voice, with a hint of anger in it. But this in itself would be a very revealing hint as to who it might be. Anyone familiar with that sound would recognize that’s the sound made whenever Lizzie The Doll would begin, attempt, to speak. And of course, wherever Lizzie goes, Shane goes too. These suspicions would be confirmed, as something is thrown across the room, and it hits the light switch; revealing everything in the room, and what hit the light switch. That being another garbage can.)
Shane Gates: WHAT THE HELL!?!? Why on earth did you throw that-
(The white noise begins to get louder and louder, with the shelves containing fragile items begins to shake, as they fall off one by one, shattering, cracking, and smashing.)
Shane Gates: Why didn’t I drop Minerva? Listen, I told you this, but you keep asking. Demanding. I told you it was all part of my plan, but you won’t accept that as an idea! I’m not saying this isn’t my fault, I’m saying that it’s not the main fucking problem here, Minerva was GOING to get eliminate-
???: Did somebody say Minerva!?!??!
(All of a sudden, before this voice would be heard, a door swings wide open, as a familiar redheaded Elitist would poke their head through the door… sadly, for all of the simps, mostly Twitter users with the username “Lean”, would all be let down as the redhead would not be Minerva; nor a female. Greg Voltaire pokes his head in, and as per usual, kills the entire vibe. Whether that’s good or not is left out in the air, but he definitely just made the entire vibe from intense to the complete opposite very quickly.)
Greg Voltaire: Oh, never… mind. Yeah I just… walked into the wrong room.
(Greg Voltaire suddenly turns around to exit the room, only to be stopped dead in his tracks as Shane Gates grabs him by the hair, and pulls him away. With the door slamming shut, Shane throws Greg across the room, luckily landing on a couch, as he slowly begins to approach his body, with a fierce, deadly look in his eyes, as he preys on the man who’s been bothering him for weeks, whether it’s as a victim, or intentionally, the man who’s been causing trouble for weeks. Screwing him out of matches, attacking Lizzie The Doll; now he’s able to get his hands on him, despite laying off for weeks.)
Shane Gates: I left my hands off you for good reason week after week so I didn’t mess up before the Grand Rampage… now… where’s the Grand Rampage? In the past. And soon, so will your fucking career. Believe me, it’s been agony not laying into you for so long, but now I can cure that agony and turn it into the satisfaction I need to keep going, after what happened at the Grand Rampage of course. I will make… you… suf-
(Before Shane Gates is able to finish his sentence, the white noise gets louder and louder once again. This doesn’t affect Shane, just making him look to the side, however, for Greg Voltaire this hurts his ears, and badly. Greg falls off the couch and lands shoulder-first against the concrete floor, as Shane begins to approach Lizzie; patience running thin and temper flaring up.)
Shane Gates: I’m trying to hurry up, Lizzie! What is this little punk going to do anyway? Sing a little song? Slap me? Please… I don’t need to be careful with him at all… and when I get my hands on him? I won’t be careful. And for the record, I won’t make the same mistake I did at Grand Rampag-
Greg Voltaire: Oh yeah, THAT mistake! :mjlol2:
Shane Gates: Watch your fucking mouth, boy, before I send you BACK on that losing streak, if you’re even lucky enough to get out of the hospital… now, where were we?
(Again, the white noise begins to ring through the camera’s speakers, shaking the lens and making it hard to see out of, that’s until it stops of course.)
Shane Gates: I told you, Lizzie. I won’t. Make. That. Mistake. Again.
Greg Voltaire: God damn this guy is loopy.
Shane Gates: I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU TO WATCH YOUR FUCKING MOUTH!?? TAKE MY WORD FOR IT, BEFORE YOU MAKE IT WORSE FOR YOURSELF!
Greg Voltaire: MAKING IT WORSE FOR MYSELF??? IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE WITH YOU? HELL, LIZZIE IS RIGHT! WHY DIDN’T YOU JUST DROP MINERVA?!
(Shane Gates would place his hands over his face and take in a deep breath of air, before letting out a loud battle cry; charging over to Greg Voltaire, and grabbing him by the throat. Shane lifts Greg off the ground, and appears to be searching for a chokeslam through the couch itself, however the white noise would flare up another time, and distract Shane Gates from the work he was trying to accomplish.)
Shane Gates: No… not you! How fucking DARE YOU?!?! LIZZIE, WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE A DUO; I WAS DOING THIS FOR YOU! AND YOU AGREE WITH THIS LOWLIFE SCUM??? HE’S ONLY SAYING THAT TO SAVE HIS SKIN, AND YOU BELIEVE HIM! YOU BELIEVE EVERY LITTLE WORD OF IT! You know what? I’m fucking done here, Lizzie. You know where to find me if you need me; I don’t suggest it, though.
(Shane Gates lets go of Greg, before giving him a harsh shove. He walks past the couch, and gives Lizzie a death stare, obviously his pride and trust being broken here in this moment. With Greg watching on with a smirk on his face, Shane Gates opens up the door before SLAMMING it shut, leaving the walls to shake due to the sheer force used with that one swift motion. Greg Voltaire stands back up on his feet, before stumbling past the couch, grinning in confidence, believing this to be a huge success.)
Greg Voltaire: Yeah, right! Go team! High fi-… oh, yeah…
(Greg Voltaire looks down at Lizzie, and his expression quickly changes from a look of confidence, and victory, to one of shock and horror, as the seemingly fake doll looks up at him, and reacts with a creepy smile. Clearly, Greg Voltaire is scared shitless.)
Greg Voltaire: Man… you shouldn’t… you shouldn’t function like that, big dog! That’s mad weird, and THAT IS A…. f-fact… Stop looking at me like that!
(Somehow, despite the design of the doll; and the plastic, the smile on Lizzie’s face grows bigger and bigger, leaving Greg to question what reality is or isn’t anymore.)
Greg Voltaire: Man, I knew I shouldn’t have picked up that needle outside… This is fucked up!
(Greg Voltaire, with a shake in his voice, sprints towards the door whilst muttering the words “fuck” over and over again, before leaving the room and slamming the door shut. The walls wouldn’t shake, in fact, the slam wouldn’t even be that loud on the camera, in comparison to Shane. As the camera pans over to Lizzie, she turns her head to face the camera, as the smile grows bigger, and her body mimics a laughing motion. Voltage then fades back to ringside.)
(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the ring.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
(‘Sk8er Boi’ by Avril Lavigne plays to a somewhat mixed reaction from the crowd Sierra Bradford heads to the ring, focused.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first! Residing in San Francisco, California, weighing in at 141 pounds…SHE IS THE WONDERGIRL…SIERRA BRADFORD!!
James Peters: Sierra along with Holly haven’t pulled any punches this week, and I especially don’t think any punches will be pulled in their match tonight.
Rich Russillo: Sierra believes Holly was involving herself in business that had nothing to do with her, and that’s where the animosity comes from tonight. Sierra has promised to do many things like beat Holly to a bloody pulp, and you can imagine why she looks to be all business tonight.
James Peters: Not just that, Sierra is in some need of a win recently as things haven’t exactly turned out well for her as of late. Can she turn the tides? Only time will tell.
(‘Sk8er Boi’ by Avril Lavigne fades out and is soon replaced with ‘Misery Business’ by Paramore as Holly Arrow comes out to a positive reaction from the audience.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent! Hailing out of Aberdeen, Washington, weighing in at 143 pounds…SHE IS THE MAIN ATTRACTION…HOLLY ARROW!!
James Peters: Holly Arrow, just like Sierra Bradford, is another fierce competitor in between those ropes, and she not only looks to collect a win here tonight, she also looks to perhaps beat some sense into Sierra Bradford.
Persephone: Someone needs to do it, she’s obviously lacking of something up there if she thinks Drake King is anything outside of a shit boyfriend.
Rich Russillo: Speaking of boyfriends…
Rich Russillo: Ok. :mjcry:
(‘Misery Business’ by Paramore dies down as Holly Arrow and Sierra Bradford both stare each other down before the referee signals for the bell to ring.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: There’s the bell, and as you should know by now, that means this match is officially underway between these two competitors! Sierra and Holly both circle each other before locking up in the center of the ring, both jockeying for position! Holly gets the early advantage with a go behind for a rear waistlock! Sierra slightly pries those hands of Holly apart before sliding behind her for a waistlock of her own! Holly wraps her arm around the head of Sierra and gains control again with a side headlock takedown!
Rich Russillo: Sierra looks for a way out of this before using those legs of hers to trap Holly in a headscissors! However, Arrow manages to kip out of it as both competitors now scramble back to their feet! Sierra and Holly circle each other once more, and it looks as if we’re gonna see another lockup, but Sierra has a different idea in mind with a sudden shoot kick to the chest of Holly that staggers her! Sierra hits another stiff shoot kick that sends Holly staggering back against the ropes this time!
James Peters: Sierra aims to hit another shoot kick, but Holly catches the leg and kicks Sierra right in the thigh! And now Holly is right back on the offensive with some chops to the chest that leans Sierra up against the ropes now! Holly bounces her off with an Irish whip, but Sierra comes back with a nice shoulder tackle that takes Holly down! SIERRA RUNS OFF THE ROPES! BUT HOLLY TURNS TO HER STOMACH, FORCING SIERRA TO LEAP OVER AND RUN OFF THE ROPES ONCE MORE! AND SIERRA RUNS RIGHT INTO A DROPKICK FROM HOLLY THAT TEMPORARILY TAKES HER DOWN!
Rich Russillo: Sierra looks to regroup herself in the corner, Holly looks to stop that from happening as she pursues Sierra there. BUT BRADFORD MAY HAVE BAITED HER AS SHE THROWS A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION AND GRABS THE BACK OF HOLLY’S HEAD TO SLAM HER FACE FIRST OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! Sierra continues her onslaught in the corner with shoulder thrusts, undoubtedly taking all the wind out of Arrow’s sails! Sierra grabs the arm of Holly and whips her into the opposite corner now!
James Peters: SIERRA CHARGES AT HOLLY IN THE CORNER WITH A HIGH KNEE! HOLLY COMES STUMBLING OUT BEFORE PLANTED DOWN IN THE CENTER OF THE RING WITH A SNAP SUPLEX FROM SIERRA! SIERRA HOOKS THE LEG FOR A PINFALL ATTEMPT!
Persephone: Holly kicks out at two, and Ms. No Personality is gonna have to think of a new game plan.
James Peters: Holly uses assistance from the ropes to get back to her feet! Sierra tries to throw Arrow back into the corner! BUT HOLLY SLINGSHOTS HERSELF UP AND OVER BRADFORD! SIERRA RUNS CHEST FIRST INTO THE CORNER BEFORE TURNING AROUND AND INTO A ROUNDHOUSE KICK FROM ARROW! SIERRA CRUMPLES TO THE MAT AS HOLLY MAKES A COVER!
Rich Russillo: SIERRA REMAINS IN THIS THING! HOLLY BRINGS HER UP AND SOON BRINGS HER DOWN AGAIN WITH A BACK SUPLEX! SIERRA IS FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THAT IN HER BACK AS SHE GETS UP TO A SEATED POSITION! HOLLY CHARGES OFF THE ROPES AND BULLDOZES INTO THE SEATED BRADFORD WITH A DROPKICK!
James Peters: SIERRA NURSES HER HEAD AS SHE SLOWLY GETS BACK TO HER FEET! HOLLY GRABS HER IN A FRONT FACELOCK AND IT LOOKS AS IF SHE’S GONNA TRY AND PLANT SIERRA DOWN WITH A DDT! BUT SIERRA PEDALS HOLLY BACK FIRST INTO THE CORNER, CAUSING HER TO RELEASE THE FRONT FACELOCK! AND HOLLY GETS LAUNCHED ALL THE WAY FROM THE CORNER TO HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX FROM SIERRA!
Rich Russillo: Bradford brings Holly up to a seated position in the center of the ring and locks in a side headlock!
Rich Russillo: Bradford has it strapped in tight, and what’s this gonna do for Sierra is give her time to rest and breathe, but also wear down her opponent at the same time, smart move by Bradford! But meanwhile, Holly starts to rally the fans behind her as she slowly moves back to her feet while in the hold! HOLLY SENDS SIERRA OFF THE ROPES TO ESCAPE FROM THE SIDE HEADLOCK! HOLLY ATTEMPTS A KITCHEN SINK ON THE REBOUNDING BRADFORD, WHO COUNTERS IT WITH A SCHOOL BOY!
James Peters: BRADFORD DOESNT HOLD IT IN FOR A PIN, AND INSTEAD TRIES TO TRANSITION OVER INTO THE BLACK PARADE HEEL HOOK! HOLLY FLAILS AROUND, MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR SIERRA TO LOCK THE HOLD IN! HOLLY GRABS AHOLD OF THE BOTTOM ROPE WITH BOTH HANDS AND USES THE LEVERAGE TO PULL HERSELF TO THE OUTSIDE, SUCCESSFULLY ESCAPING THE HEEL HOOK OF BRADFORD, WHO RUNS OFF THE ROPES IN ATTEMPT FOR SOMETHING TO HOLLY ON THE OUTSIDE!
Rich Russillo: BUT HOLLY SLID BACK INTO THE RING RIGHT AS SIERRA BOUNCED OFF THE ROPES AND CAUGHT HER WITH A SPINNING LEG LARIAT! HOLLY HEADS OUT ON THE APRON, AND LOOKS TO BE LINING SIERRA UP FOR SOMETHING! HOLLY SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES- OH! SIERRA TRIED TO KNOCK HOLLY OFF, CAUSING HER TO LEAP OVER SIERRA AND TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! HOLLY TURNS AROUND AND INTO A BICYCLE KICK FROM BRADFORD! AND IF SIERRA NAILS HER WITH ANY MORE OF THOSE KICKS, ID HAVE IT ON GOOD AUTHORITY FOR HOLLY TO VISIT A DENTIST SOON!
Persephone: I have it on good authority that I’m gonna need a doctor soon once this match kills me with boredom.
James Peters: :wow: Meanwhile in the ring, Sierra Bradford looks to end this match right here off that kick and hooks the leg of Holly!
James Peters: HOLLY KICKS OUT, AND MUCH TO THE CHAGRIN OF BRADFORD THERE! Holly moves to all fours as she tries to get her wits about her! But from behind, Sierra wraps her arms around the waist of the downed Arrow, and brings her off the mat for a German Suplex attempt! BUT HOLLY THROWS A BACK ELBOW INTO THE FACE OF SIERRA, WHICH CAUSES HER TO RELEASE HOLLY AND STUMBLE BACK INTO THE ROPES! ARROW WHIPS HER OFF OF THEM! HOLLY LEAPS IN THE AIR FOR A DROPKICK, BUT ENDS UP LANDING HARD ON HER BACK AS SIERRA HELD ON TO THE ROPES!
Rich Russillo: SIERRA TAKES THIS MOMENT TO CLIMB TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! HOLLY SENSES SHES IN TROUBLE, HOWEVER, AND ROLLS TO THE APRON! SIERRA TURNS HERSELF TOWARDS HOLLY ON THE TOP ROPE, BUT DOESNT GET TO EXECUTE WHAT SHE WAS THINKING AS HOLLY CUTS HER OFF! ARROW CLIMBS TO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! AND THIS IS EXTREMELY RISKY AS BOTH COMPETITORS ARE FACING TOWARDS THE OUTSIDE! HOLLY TRIES TO HOOK BRADFORD FOR A SUPERPLEX! BUT SIERRA SLIDES THROUGH THE LEGS OF ARROW AND ONTO THE APRON!
Persephone: FUCK! Right when these two could’ve something semi interesting by splatting on the outside! :will:
James Peters: SIERRA GRABS THE LEG OF THE TURNED AROUND HOLLY, WHO KICKS SIERRA AWAY, SENDING HER STAGGERING BACK AND LEAVING HOLLY ROOM TO CLIMB OFF THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! BUT HOLLY TURNS AROUND INTO A SUPERKICK ATTEMPT FROM SIERRA! LUCKILY THOUGH, HOLLY MANAGES TO CATCH THE BOOT AND THROWS IT DOWN! HOLLY SMASHES HER FOREARM INTO THE FACE OF SIERRA BRADFORD, KNOCKING HER OFF THE APRON! SIERRA REMAINS ON HER FEET, HOWEVER, NOT FOR LONG AS HOLLY SOARS OFF THE APRON WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE!
Rich Russillo: BOTH COMPETITORS LIE WIPED OUT ON THE OUTSIDE BEFORE HOLLY GETS TO HER FEET AND SENDS SIERRA BACK INSIDE! ARROW CLIMBS ON THE APRON AND AWAITS THE DAZED BRADFORD TO TURN AROUND, WHICH SHE EVENTUALLY DOES FOR THE SPRINGBOARD BLOCKBUSTER TO CONNECT! THAT MIGHT HAVE DONE IT RIGHT THERE AS HOLLY MAKES THE COVER!
James Peters: NO! SIERRA BRADFORD GETS THE SHOULDER UP, MUCH TO THE SHOCK OF ARROW! HOLLY GETS BACK UP TO HER FEET AS SIERRA MANAGES TO GET UP TO A KNEE! HOLLY LIFTS HER OFF THE MAT AND SENDS HER INTO CORNER- NO, WAIT! SIERRA REVERSES AND HOLLY GOES INTO SAID CORNER INSTEAD! SIERRA CHARGES IN WITH A RUNNING KNEE, BUT ITS UNSUCCESSFUL THIS TIME AS HOLLY ARROW MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! SIERRA GOES CRASHING KNEE FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!
Rich Russillo: SIERRA STAMMERS BACK INTO A LARIAT FROM HOLLY! THAT DOESNT KEEP SIERRA DOWN AS SHE QUICKLY GETS BACK TO HER FEET! ANOTHER LARIAT FROM HOLLY CONNECTS, BUT AGAIN, THAT DOESNT KEEP BRADFORD DOWN! AND SHE RUNS INTO A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION FROM ARROW! HOLLY RUNS OFF THE ROPES IN FRONT OF THE DOUBLED OVER SIERRA, WHO CATCHES THE REBOUNDING HOLLY WITH A LEG SWEEP! SIERRA QUICKLY MOVES INTO A COVER!
James Peters: HOLLY IMMEDIATELY POWERS OUT OF THAT AND BOTH COMPETITORS MOVE BACK TO THEIR FEET! SIERRA ATTEMPTS A STEP UP ENZIGURI ON HOLLY, WHO DUCKS UNDER IT, MAKING SIERRA LAND FLAT ON HER FACE! SIERRA GETS BACK TO HER FEET, CLUTCHING AT HER NOSE BEFORE BEING SHOVED FROM BEHIND BY HOLLY INTO THE ROPES! SIERRA FLIES OVER THE TOP, BUT CATCHES HERSELF ON THE APRON! HOLLY TRIES TO CHARGE INTO BRADFORD!
Rich Russillo: BUT SIERRA STICKS HER LEG THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE, CAUSING HOLLY TO RUN RIGHT INTO A BOOT THAT BRINGS HER DOWN TO ONE KNEE! SIERRA CLIMBS TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AFTERWARDS, BUT IS ONCE AGAIN CUT OFF BY ARROW WHILE SHE’S UP THERE! HOLLY CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE AND THROWS SOME PUNCHES TO THE HEAD OF THE PERCHED BRADFORD! HOLLY HOOKS HER UP FOR A TOP ROPE SUPERPLEX, BUT SIERRA THROWS SOME WELL-PLACED SHOTS TO THE RIBCAGE!
James Peters: HOLLY IS SOON SHOVED OFF THE TOP ROPE BY BRADFORD! AND SIERRA SEES HER IN PERFECT POSITIONING AS SHE SOARS OFF THE TOP ROPE WITH A BEAUTIFUL 450 SPLASH! SIERRA BRADFORD HOOKS THE LEGS FOR A COVER!
Persephone: ITS FINALLY OVER!
James Peters: NO! SIERRA LOOKS TO HAVE ACCIDENTALLY OVER-ROTATED HOLLY ON THAT COVER AND HER FEET GOT TO THE MIDDLE ROPE! THE REFEREE BRINGS THIS TO THE ATTENTION OF SIERRA, WHO THOUGHT SHE HAD THE MATCH WON RIGHT THERE! SIERRA LETS GO OF THE PINFALL AND STARTS TO POST IN THE OPPOSITE CORNER! SHE IS STALKING HOLLY ARROW, LINING HER UP, JUST WAITING FOR HER TO GET TO HER FEET!
Rich Russillo: HOLLY EVENTUALLY DOES AND SIERA CHARGES IN WITH HANGOVER!!! THE RUNNING KNEE FROM SIERRA BRADFORD IS…DENIED! HOLLY STOPPED HER RIGHT IN HER TRACKS WITH A SUPERKICK! SIERRA STAGGERS BACK AND GROGGILY REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES, RIGHT INTO FALCON’S ARROW FROM HOLLY! NO! SIERRA SLIPS OUT BEHIND ARROW, WHO SHE SHOVES INTO THE CORNER!
James Peters: BUT HOLLY GETS HER BOOT UP ON THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE, STOPPING HERSELF FROM COLLIDING! SIERRA BRADFORD RUNS AT HOLLY, ONLY TO GET CAUGHT WITH A BACK ELBOW THAT SENDS HER REELING BACK! HOLLY ARROW HEADS OVER TO BRADFORD AND THROWS A KICK RIGHT TO THE ABDOMEN! HOLLY MAKES ANOTHER DDT ATTEMPT, BUT SIERRA TWIRLS OUT OF IT AND PULLS HER INTO AN OLYMPIC SLAM! SIERRA BRADFORD MAKES A COVER!
Persephone: Another kickout by Holly Arrow, and for some reason, these fans at home actually look HAPPY this match is continuing. :wtf:
Rich Russillo: The match is great for the fans, but the competitors might be a different story. I mean, at what point does doubt set in? They’ve threw their best shots at each other and it’s either got countered or kicked out of, these two have certainly studied the tapes on each other.
James Peters: Yeah, and Sierra Bradford gets to her feet after that kickout, clearly a bit exhausted. She grabs the leg of Holly, and it looks as if we’re gonna see the heel hook that was attempted earlier! BUT HOLLY THROWS SOME KICKS TO THE HEAD WITH HER FREE LEG, STILL FIGHTING THE HEEL HOOK, NOT ALLOWING IT TO BE PUT ON! SIERRA IS PERSISTENT AND KEEPS TRYING BUT HOLLY SOON SHOVES HER AWAY WITH BOTH FEET! HOLLY GETS BACK TO HERS, AND SIERRA BRADFORD IS BROUGHT DOWN WITH A SLINGBLADE!
Rich Russillo: BRADFORD SEEKS REFUGE IN THE CORNER, ARROW RUNS AT SIERRA, ONLY FOR HER MOMENTUM TO COME TO A SCREECHING HALT AS ARROW GETS THE BOOT UP! HOLLY TURNS AROUND, CLUTCHING AT HER JAW AFTER THAT BOOT! SIERRA TAKES ADVANTAGE BY GRABBING THE HEAD OF ARROW AND MAT SLAMMING HER DOWN INTO THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE! ARROW CLUCTHES AT THE BACK OF HER HEAD AS SHE IS SUNK IN THAT CORNER!
James Peters: BRADFORD SENSES OPPORTUNITY AND BUILDS UP MOMENTUM USING THE OPPOSITE CORNER FOR A CANNONBALL SENTON! SIERRA PULLS HER OUT OF THE CORNER BY THE LEG, PUTTING HER IN PERFECT POSITIONING FOR BRADFORD TO SCALE THE TOP ROPE ONCE MORE! SIERRA HAS CRUEL INTENTIONS ON THE MIND AS SHE LEAPS OFF THE TOP WITH ANOTHER 450 SPLASH!
Rich Russillo: BUT THIS TIME, SIERRA IS UNSUCCESSFUL AS THERE IS NOBODY HOME! HOLLY ARROW SLID OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN THE NICK OF TAME, AND SIERRA FAVORS HER ABDOMINAL AREA IN AGONY ON THE MAT! HOLLY ARROW SEES OPPORTUNITY NOW AND CLIMBS THE TOP ROPE HERSELF! SIERRA HAS NO IDEA WHAT’S ABOUT TO COME NEXT AS HOLLY ARROW CRASHES DOWN UPON HER WITH THUNDERSTRUCK! AN ABSOLUTE BEAUTY OF A SWANTON BY HOLLY ARROW PERFORMED THERE, AND THE COVER IS MADE!
James Peters: HOLLY ARROW IS ASTONISHED AS SOMEHOW SIERRA GOT THE SHOULDER UP OFF THE SWANTON! ARROW GETS BACK UP TO HER FEET AND TELLS SIERRA BRADFORD TO GET UP! SIERRA DOES AND GROGGILY WANDERS BACK INTO A RIPCORD FROM HOLLY, AND SHE SOON GETS TWIRLED FOR HOLLY TO LAND SWEET 16!
Rich Russillo: BUT SIERRA BREAKS THE RIPCORD OF HOLLY WITH A KICK TO THE FACE THAT IS SOON FOLLOWED UP WITH A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE THAT TURNS HOLLY INSIDE OUT! SIERRA CLIMBS THE TOP TURNBUCKLE ONCE AGAIN THIS MATCH, THIS TIME WITH HER BACK TURNED ARROW! BUT THAT TURNS OUT TO BE A HUGE MISTAKE AS HOLLY FOLLOWS SIERRA UP THERE BEFORE SHE CAN LEAP OFF! HOLLY DELIVERS SHOT AFTER SHOT AFTER SHOT THE BACK OF BRADFORD, LOOSENING HER UP FOR AN AVALANCHE BACK SUPLEX!
James Peters: BUT SIERRA HAD THE WHEREWITHAL TO COUNTER SAID SUPLEX WITH A CROSSBODY AS THEY BOTH CAME CRASHING DOWN TO THE MAT! A TIRED SIERRA REMAINS LIED ACROSS HOLLY ON THE MAT AS THE REFEREE GETS INTO POSITION FOR WHAT JUST MAY BE AN INADVERTENT VICTORY HERE!
James Peters: HOLLY IS STILL ALIVE, MANAGING TO GET THE SHOULDER UP, BUT YOU CAN TELL HER LIGHTS MIGHTS AS WELL BE DIMMED RIGHT ABOUT NOW, PERHAPS JUST RUNNING OFF OF INSTINCT! SIERRA BRADFORD GETS TO HER FEET AND LIFTS HOLLY UP FOR A SUPLEX! BUT HOLLY ESCAPES OUT THE BACK, SIERRA GETS SLIGHTLY SHOVED BY HOLLY BEFORE SHE TURNS AROUND INTO A TILT-A-WHIRL HURRICANRANA ATTEMPT!
Rich Russillo: BUT SIERRA BRADFORD HOLDS HER FOOTING AS HOLLY ARROW HANGS UPSIDE DOWN, TRYING TO BRING SIERRA DOWN WITH THE HURRICANRANA TO NO USE! SIERRA WRAPS HER ARM AROUND THE RIGHT LEG OF THE HANGING ARROW AND LOCKS IN THE BLACK PARADE! A CREATIVE WAY BY SIERRA TO GET THAT HEEL HOOK IN, HOLLY HAS NOWHERE TO GO AS SHE REACHES FOR THE ROPES! SIERRA IS WRENCHING ON THE MOVE WITH ALL HER MIGHT, HOWEVER! HOLLY MAY HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO CALL IT QUITS HERE!
Persephone: YES! TAP OUT! LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY OR WHATEVER!
James Peters: THE HAND OF HOLLY GETS RAISED IN THE AIR, BUT LOOK AT THE HEART OF HOLLY ARROW, SHE ISNT TAPPING JUST YET DESPITE THE EXCRUCIATING PAIN SHES IN AT THIS MOMENT AND LOOKS TO TRY AND INCH HER WAY OVER TO THE ROPES! SIERRA BRADFORD WRENCHES HARDER AND HARDER ON THE HOLD WITH HOW CLOSE ARROW IS GETTING, JUST TRYING TO GET HER TO TAP OUT! BUT HOLLY GRITS THROUGH IT AND GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE, FORCING SIERRA BRADFORD TO BREAK THE HOLD!
Rich Russillo: BUT IS THE DAMAGE ALREADY DONE TO ARROW, AS SHE NURSES THAT LEG OF HERS! SIERRA BRADFORD ISNT LOOKING TO ASK QUESTIONS AND MORE SO LOOKING TO ENSURE AS SHE BEGINS TO STOMP THE DOWNED ARROW, WHOS DOING HER BEST TO COVER UP AS SHE MOVES TO ALL FOURS! THE REFEREE BACKS SIERRA AWAY FROM HOLLY, BUT SIERRA SOON IS BACK TO MORE, DELIVERING MORE STOMPS AND KICKS TO THE HEAD! FRUSTRATION CERTAINLY SETTING IN!
James Peters: THE REFEREE SEPARATES SIERRA FROM HOLLY ONCE MORE, SIERRA AGAIN GOES RIGHT BACK IN! BUT HOLLY USES THE FRONT OF SIERRA’S TRUNKS FROM LEVERAGE AS SHE PULLS HER TO THE OUTSIDE! SIERRA LANDS ON HER FEET AND GRABS THE ANKLE OF HOLLY FOR AN ANKLE LOCK! IT STAYS IN FOR A MOMENT BEFORE HOLLY BOOTS SIERRA IN THE FACE REPEATEDLY TO GET AWAY! SIERRA SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING TO PURSUE HOLLY, WHO GOES BEHIND HER AND DROPS HER WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX?
Rich Russillo: HOLLY ISNT DONE THERE AS SHE SLOWLY WORKS BACK TO HER FEET ON ACCOUNT OF HER LEG WHILE NOT HAVING THE GRIP AROUND THE WAIST OF BRADFORD BROKEN! HOLLY ARROW THEN DROPS SIERRA WITH ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX! HOLLY GETS BACK UP TO COMPLETE THE TRIFECTA, WHICH SHE DOES! BUT AGAIN, SHE KEEPS HER HANDS LOCKED TOGETHER, BRINGING THE STUNNED SIERRA BACK TO HER FEET! HOLLY GRABS HER IN A RIPCORD! …SWEET 16!!!
James Peters: NO! SIERRA BRADFORD AVOIDS THE CLOTHESLINE AGAIN, THIS TIME DUCKING UNDER AND RUNNING OFF THE ROPES! HOLLY TURNS AROUND INTO ELECTRIC FEEL!! THE SHINING WIZARD CONNECTS ON THE STANDING HOLLY ARROW, WHO LOOKS TO BE DOWN AND OUT RIGHT ABOUT NOW! ALL SIERRA HAS TO DO IS CRAWL OVER AND MAKE THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: ITS TAKING SIERRA JUST A LITTLE BIT TO DO THAT ON ACCOUNT OF HER FATIGUE AFTER THIS GRUELING MATCH UP, BUT EVENTUALLY SHE DOES AND LIES DOWN ON THE BODY OF ARROW FOR THE COVER, NO HOOK OF THE LEG AND THAT COULD COST HER HERE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: HERES YOUR WINNER…SIERRA BRADFORD!!
(Sierra rolls off of Holly as ‘Sk8er Boi’ by Avril Lavigne plays to a loud reception from the audience.)
Persephone: Finally! The match is over, and I’m one step closer to my sexy Rexy! :mjlit:
James Peters: Let’s not just gloss over the match these two just had, both putting it all on the line in the name of victory!
Rich Russillo: Yeah, but in the end, Sierra Bradford walks out with her hand raised and that has to sting for Holly Arrow!
(The camera fades to black on the final shot of Sierra Bradford leaving the ring after her celebration.)
(Commercial for McDonald’s featuring Andre Walker. He’s not present for very long as he begins exposing the secrets behind McDonald’s management, causing him to have to be replaced.)
(RECAP: A flashing fade-in effect comes across viewers’ screens to the Grand Rampage FPV, the Universal Women’s Championship match featuring the defending champion, Darcy May Morgan, and Friday Night Dynasty General Manager, Veena Adams! After having granted herself the opportunity to be the challenger for the title, the replay shows Veena looking determined as ever to ensure that she wins her first-ever championship in EAW! The Universal Women’s Champion is in no mood for games, only to find herself being attacked by Veena, who seems to surprise everyone when she begins a relentless assault. But it’s back and forth action with both women trading big blows, quick but hard-hitting strikes, and making use of the environment in and out of the ring. Having declared that she’ll see to it that Dynasty will have the better Pain for Pride line-up and knowing it’d sting Captain Charisma that she took a title from an Elitist of his brand, it shouldn’t be a shock that Veena often targets after the arm and shoulder of Darcy that had been dislocated at this very FPV the year before, as a way to bring herself that much closer to the forefront of the biggest event of the year.)
(RECAP: At one point in the match Veena tries to put Darcy away with her signature Kimura Lock, but Darcy manages to save the match and the championship for herself for the time being with a rope break, although the damage may be done. However, with Veena failing to keep Darcy down, the champion makes a comeback and fends Veena off, having repeatedly targeted Veena’s formerly injured neck at times throughout various moments of the match. Having already dropped Veena neck-first into the stairs, gone after it with submission holds, and dropped her with moves that would only bring more heavy impact to it, Darcy fires off in the ring on Veena! The two of them understand that a good portion of the other’s offense has been specifically targeted and one of them eventually won’t hold up to last long in the action, which also sees the two of them bring each other to get taken out of the ring. There are counters abound before Veena finally manages to fight Darcy off, knocking her back and attempting a spear, but Darcy wisely steps aside and shoves Veena to collide with a crash head-first into the steps – a counter that appears to further affect her neck upon collision as well. All this before Darcy is knocking her out with an inverted alabama slam into the very front of the steps just immediately after.)
(RECAP: With Veena effectively out, Darcy scoops her up and sends her into the ring to successfully strike with The Curtain Call that Veena can’t escape on the second time around, officially ending the match and ensuring that Veena won’t be holding a championship in EAW for the time being. On the image of Darcy celebrating another successful defense, the replay fades out.)
(Fading back onto the live broadcast, Captain Charisma stands in the ring with a proud smile on his face having been watching along with everyone else on the titantron. He nods his head and takes a spot in the middle of the ring with a microphone in hand, ready to speak to the virtual audience.)
Captain Charisma: The match for the Universal Women’s Championship was undoubtedly heated, both women took nasty hits but they both dished them back out just the same. While I think it’s safe to say that the EAW Universe will never be a fan of Veena Adams, there’s still no denying that she challenged Darcy in ways that I don’t think too many people can say that they were expecting. …However, the Universal Women’s Champion wasn’t going to allow herself to be put away and her resilience showed that! Securing another defense in her reign, Darcy showed that she’s going to stay on the path she created for herself when she cashed in the Cash in the Vault briefcase that she won last year at Pain for Pride.
Captain Charisma: Darcy has remained consistent and determined, but rather than just leave her in the back watching on, let’s bring her out! Everyone, help me in welcoming our Universal Women’s Champion, Darcy May Morgan!
(“Spotlight Saviour” by Iggy Azalea begins to play to cheers from the crowd, as they’re no doubt happy to have seen that she kept the Universal Women’s Championship from falling into Veena’s hands. Darcy comes out with the championship raised for all to see and a confident grin on her face as she makes her way down the ramp and into the ring. Retrieving a microphone Darcy places the Universal Women’s Title over her shoulder as she stands across from Captain Charisma.)
Captain Charisma: Congratulations on a second, successful defense, Darcy! Seeing how you’ve come into being a World Champion, and what you’ve done to maintain that position, has been quite a sight to see and has kept everyone captivated!
Darcy May Morgan: Well, could you have expected anything less from The Leading Lady, Captain Charisma? Let’s be honest, I’ve had all eyes on me for quite some time – ever since last year, I’ve had the world talking about me. No matter what I was doing, who I was facing, what match I was in – people wanted to see what Darcy May Morgan was going to do next and it all got to a point where I think it became quite clear to everyone that World Championship stardom was where I was set to be. Once I cashed in, all I did was make it a reality for myself that much sooner – and it was for the title that I said that I had long set my sights on. Veena honestly tried to say that she was the only woman who was willing to bet everything on the Universal Women’s Championship, but as she came to find out, handing herself that title shot was a mistake.
Darcy May Morgan: Veena wanted to take this from me, and she was willing to try to rip my arm off to get it. I’ll be honest and give her some credit: she tried. She honestly, truly tried to make herself the Universal Women’s Champion at my expense, and I think after her performance that she might’ve gotten people talking about whatever title shot she might go giving herself next as if she’s ever amounted to anything in her in-ring career to warrant one. 🙄 But now she knows better than to come after me the way she did.
Darcy May Morgan: And to think that she did all that before Pain for Pride, too?! She really thought she was going to be the one to take my championship before the biggest FPV that EAW has and prevent me from having my first main event match there?! Ha! That’s funny, cute even! But no, it was going to happen for Veena just like it wasn’t going to happen for Harper Lee. Now, with Veena out the way though, I’m looking that much more forward to seeing my way to my first Pain for Pride main event, only made better by the fact that I know I’ll be walking into it as the Universal Women’s Champion!
(Darcy looks to the championship over her shoulder with a wider smile, as the crowd cheers the statements made by the champion. It’s clear that main eventing Pain for Pride has been a huge goal for Darcy, but going into it as the Universal Women’s Championship is something that makes leading up to the event all that more major.)
Captain Charisma: Main eventing Pain for Pride is something that the fortunate few who end up in that position look forward to so much! To be the main event, to be the match that everyone has their eyes on, to have all their hard work bring them to a solidified spot in the history of the greatest company in the world. But as for who’ll be in that ring challenging for the very title that you hold? We’re soon to find out, in a No Way Out Match to determine that at Battle of Egypt!
(The crowd booms with excitement as Captain Charisma announces the match-up, knowing that it’s a wild match that pits six competitors against each other with, quite literally, no way out. Darcy nods her head, familiar with the match herself from last season.)
Captain Charisma: But that’s not all, as fortunately for everyone tuning in, I have the names of the competitors who’ll be facing off for the opportunity to meet you at Pain for Pride for the Universal Women’s Championship! First off, we have….
(Captain Charisma turns to the tron, bringing everyone’s focus to it as a moment passes before a picture of one of the women scheduled for the match appears on the tron!)
Captain Charisma: MIKU SAKAI! The Unified Tag Team Champion will be getting her chance to shine, much like her partner Hikari in Grand Rampage, and possibly find herself with a World Championship shot! As a part of IDOL-GUN, Miku has come in setting the Tag Team Division on fire in a short amount of time and the two of them haven’t stopped finding themselves as some of our most in-demand Elitists! Having ruffled feathers, frustrated plenty of opponents, and kept everyone on their toes, I’ve made it clear that IDOL-GUN has just as much plenty of value to Voltage. Miku has the chance to show everyone, as promised, why she’s an Elitist that people and simps alike are constantly giving her and IDOL-GUN their attention!
(Captain Charisma’s excited grin doesn’t falter as, eventually, Miku’s picture is replaced by one of…. HARPER LEE!)
Captain Charisma: A woman you’re no stranger to, Darcy, we have Dynasty’s HARPER LEE stepping into the No Way Out Match as well! You two faced off back at Shock Value in your first defense, and while you came out on top, Harper now has the chance to find herself in your path for a second time for the Universal Women’s Championship. While she’s dropped The Realm, she hasn’t dropped the athleticism and tenacity that she’s known for – in fact, I’d say that her determination to stand out and rise to the top has only been heightened in recent weeks! I have no doubt that she’ll be looking to show she’s got what it takes to rise up the ladder as a singles competitor!
(The picture of Harper is faded away from the screen, and the crowd cheers as… a picture of ALEXIS CHAMBERS is shown!)
Captain Charisma: And now we have ALEXIS CHAMBERS! Since coming over from Showdown to Voltage, Alexis has shown a desire to truly want to break out and stand on her own. She’s seen bumps in the road and she’s come out on the losing end at times, but who hasn’t? What makes Alexis a woman in the No Way Out Match to stay focused on is how she’s picked herself up, stayed at it, still collected wins along the way, and hasn’t thought to back down. Had she let the Showdown drama affect her more than it did, she just might not even be in this discussion but Alexis’ persistence is truly something to be admired! Coming all this way to win the No Way Out Match would certainly show why she’s an example of an Elitist who’s turned what was a bad situation into a golden opportunity!
(Alexis’ picture is faded out to be replaced by… one of RAVEN ROBERTS!)
Captain Charisma: Showdown’s RAVEN ROBERTS could very well be on her way to another Pain for Pride main event if she manages to win the No Way Out Match for a second time! I believe we all remember just how personal things between her and Minerva became, bringing into question just how far both women would go to overcome the other. Despite the personal details about Raven that were maliciously brought to light by Minerva, it remains one of the most extremely personal feuds that we’ve seen when it comes to the Universal Women’s Title and it resulted in a match that was brutal for both women to have to go through. While it goes without saying that it’s unforgettable for both women themselves, it’s left its mark in EAW – and Raven has certainly left a mark of her own in this industry as one of the best. Raven is regarded as one of the hardest working Elitists, as well as one of the smartest, and I believe there’s no doubt that she could be a World Champion once again at some point in her career. But you and Raven, Darcy, have faced off before – earlier this year, and even last season in this very match among other women – and she’s beaten you in both instances.
(Darcy’s expression is stoic at the reminder.)
Captain Charisma: But would a third match see the same result? Or would you have it in you to finally defeat this former Universal Women’s Champion?! I believe it’s a match-up that EAW fans would love to see!
(The virtual crowd responds with cheers, as a match between Darcy and Raven wouldn’t disappoint by any means. Raven’s picture comes to disappear from the tron, leaving…. one of MS. EXTREME!)
Captain Charisma: Our own MS. EXTREME would love to finally see her way into a main event of Pain for Pride, and while having competed for the Universal Women’s Title back at Road to Redemption, things just didn’t turn out in her favor. She makes it no secret that she sees herself as the best Elitist to have yet to win a World Title, and if she manages to see her way to victory in the No Way Out Match, she could very well be close to capturing it! She’s one of our toughest and most valued Elitists here on Voltage, who’ll tell anyone what’s on her mind while holding nothing back like she does in the ring, and I’m sure she’d love to do the same in a match against you again! And what a match that’d be, right?! Both of you competed in the Cash in the Vault match last year at Pain for Pride and to see you two come to the end of the season competing for a World Championship would be a way of coming full circle – all this time later, not just vying for the chance to earn a shot at a World Championship but actually competing for it on the biggest stage possible!
(Ms. Extreme’s picture is swept out of view from the tron, meaning that there’s one woman left and that’s revealed to be…. ANDREA VALENTINE! It’s no surprise that there’s plenty of boos ringing out from the crowd for her most recent actions at Grand Rampage.)
Captain Charisma: Another Showdown Elitist in ANDREA VALENTINE, who recently made her return to the ring from being sidelined with an injury! A former EAW World Champion, Andrea had shown during her reign that there wasn’t a challenge that she wouldn’t confront head-on. She took the EAW Championship all the way from last season’s Road to Redemption to that same season’s Pain for Pride, going in as the defending champion after facing off with and being made to deal with some of the toughest competition she just might’ve ever had. It was through that she established herself as one of the best women who’ll be going into this match. While you defeated her for the Specialists Championship, we’d be talking about you two facing off for the Universal Women’s Championship now – and you two meeting practically two years later in a Pain for Pride main event would show just where things stand now! While her recent actions definitely have people wondering where she stands with her former Beating Heart friends, a World Title shot is on the line and I’m sure that Andrea would love to see herself coming to the end of the season with a Universal Women’s Title shot!
(Andrea’s picture fades away before all six pictures are put back up on the tron, showing again which women are in line to have the opportunity to go at it among themselves until there’s only one of them that can say that they’ll officially be in the Universal Women’s Championship match for Pain for Pride.)
Captain Charisma: And now-
Darcy May Morgan: Uh, let me stop you right there, Captain Charisma, because while I let you have your time and do what you could to hype these women up, I believe it’s my turn to weigh in here. I mean, after all, all six of those girls are facing off for the right to go against The Leading Lady and I want to let each of them know where they stand, right here right now! As far as Miku goes, I’ve already faced off against Hikari and Hikari went as far as to resort to trying to crack me over the head with her Tag Title. If those are the kinds of games that IDOL-GUN likes to play, they should know well enough from that whole experience that I play them a whole hell of a lot better – and all while looking better, too. 😌 But make no mistake about it, regardless of whether she’s a Tag Team Champion after tonight or not, I’ll still take her on and show that for as great as they believe they are, Darcy May Morgan is always going to be better.
Darcy May Morgan: And Alexis Chambers? She might try to redeem herself of that embarrassing mess she was a part of last year, but I’d be as ready as ever to show why she’s not prepared to face me. She hasn’t worked as hard as me, she hasn’t succeeded like I have to prove her worth – if her season hasn’t shown already that she’s not prepared to take that next step then me beating her in record time at Pain for Pride certainly would. But speaking of not being prepared to take that next step, there’s Harper Lee. She might’ve gone and traded in Sierra for someone else, and decided to get mean enough to try to rip Sierra’s tongue out with a pair of pliers, but she already knows I don’t get in that ring to fuck around. When I bloodied her face back at Shock Value, when I put her down and out back in my first defense, she knew right then and there that this Universal Women’s Championship was going to be something that she was a long ways off from getting to hold – and she’d come to find at Pain for Pride that she wouldn’t be getting her hands on it there, either.
Darcy May Morgan: When it comes to Raven, Ms. Extreme, and Andrea? I’ve got history with all three of those women. If there’s one thing I’d really love to do against Raven, it’s defeat her. She’s won over me far too many times for my liking – that’s something that needs to be addressed. People can go on and on about how much they adore Raven or whatever, but if there’s one thing I can’t settle with, it’s not having beaten her one-on-one in the middle of the ring. I’m the one leading the division that she decided had to be left behind before coming back, and so to go through all I did to get here just to get as far as Pain for Pride and fall to Raven Roberts once again? I won’t stand for it, and she’ll know damn well when I’m standing over her lifeless body at Pain for Pride that I’ve learned from my mistakes. But that’s if Andrea doesn’t go costing her another title shot. Everyone saw Andrea make it clear she’s seemingly got it out for everyone these days, and for what? If she can’t have her moment without a total meltdown, then no one can get theirs? Not even the women who’d been her closest friends? She’s certainly fallen from where she was last season, and I doubt she’s in the right state of mind to go carrying another World Title, let alone face off against me a second time seeing as how I beat her for the Specialists Title last season. But the results aren’t gonna change between that match and what’d possibly be a match at Pain for Pride. I defeated her and took over the Specialists Division, showing I was destined for greatness the entire time – defeating her at Pain for Pride would just prove this entire women’s division is mine now.
Darcy May Morgan: And Ms. Extreme loves to run her mouth about being the greatest Elitist to haven’t won a World Title, but is she really that proud of doing all that talking just to have never even gotten to hold a World Championship? Sure, she’s worked hard to establish herself… but outside of all that hard work, what else she’s also established is that her pursuits for World Titles are destined to end in disappointment. I kept her and everyone else from winning Cash in the Vault and I’d be stopping her from winning the Universal Women’s Championship. I know she was bitter and I know she was upset about losing then, and if she thought that was something? Once again, she wouldn’t know what the hell hit her at Pain for Pride at the hands of The Leading Lady – but ultimately, she’d leave from that ring certainly knowing that she just took a loss to me. That goes for her and every other woman going into the No Way Out Match, because at the end of it all, no matter who it is I’m facing, this all ends with me still reigning as the Universal Women’s Champion. This is my title and it’ll be my match to win against whoever I’m facing; they’re just here to be supporting acts to the star, and I’ll be the one shining bright in MY main event match at Pain for Pride!
(Darcy drops her microphone at Captain Charisma’s feet and raises the Universal Women’s Championship, Captain Charisma backing away to let Darcy have her moment to pose with the championship while she mouths off off-mic to the camera while “Spotlight Saviour” starts up again. She knows that all the women named have surely got to be watching and she’s making it known that there’s not a single one of them she doesn’t think she can take in the ring. What that means to any of them now remains to be seen, but if there’s one thing that’s clear, Darcy isn’t headed into Pain for Pride with any intention of losing. From there, the scene fades out.)
(Voltage fades into a commercial thanking everyone for spending their Mother’s Day with EAW. Happy Mother’s Day!)
(Voltage comes back from commercial break to show Bella Braxton standing at the center of the ring with a smile on her face as she begins to speak)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Diva’ by Beyoncé plays up to cheers from the virtual crowd as Candice Blair makes her way out to the stage. She has a grin on her face as she poses at the center of the ring, scanning the arena before focusing on the ring. It isn’t long after that she makes her way down the ramp and headed towards the ring)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from San Francisco, California… weighing in at 126 pounds… THE HOT COMMODITY… CANDICE BLAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Well the last time we saw Candice in the ring it definitely wasn’t the happiest occasion for her. But let’s not forget that the following week we saw her come out and cost Sierra Bradford her match against Jonny Airhart. Intentional or not it’s beyond me, but it did its job.
James Peters: Well Candice returns to in-ring competition tonight as she knows that she has to prove that she’s in the best shape heading into Battle of Egypt. She’s on a mission tonight, and who knows what’s going to happen.
Persephone: I really don’t care about any of this, do I care about this? A loser concerning herself about another loser getting abused by a loser. It’s just a whole bunch of bullshit that is really boring too so it doesn’t do it any favors.
(Candice makes her way around the ring as she jumps onto the apron and poses on it before she enters into the ring and jumping up onto the top rope as she spreads her arms with a smile on her face before jumping off and making her way over to her corner as ‘Diva’ fades out)
(‘Down With The Sickness’ by Disturbed plays up to boos from the crowd as Tyson Zane makes his way out to the stage as Dante Hernandez. Dante is clearly sore along with Tyson who grabs his head in pain after a chairshot earlier in the night. He shakes it off as he makes his way down the ramp and towards the ring)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent… accompanied by Dante Hernandez… from Brooklyn, New York… weighing in at 227 pounds… THE TURBINE… TYSON ZANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Well as for the team of Tyson and Dante it didn’t go well for them as they’re still shaking off the attack from the combined forces of Kensi and Lisa Wren. They’re out for blood now no doubt.
James Peters: A win under their belt especially against an established Elitist would do wonders for both of their careers and that’s exactly what they’re planning to do tonight.
Persephone: Oh great! The enhancement talent is here! We can make this match go by real quick so we can get to Rexy! :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:
(Tyson makes his way up the steps as he enters into the ring. Taking his hand off his head as he raises his arms in the air to the boos of the crowd once more. Dante cheers him on the outside as Tyson makes his way over to his corner, getting ready as ‘Down With The Sickness’ fades out as the ref signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go as this match is underway, AS TYSON ZANE RUNS TOWARDS CANDICE AND GOES FOR A SPEAR TO START OFF THIS MATCHUP!
James Peters: BUT CANDICE SHUTS HIM DOWN WITH A KNEE STRIKE TOWARDS HIS HEAD TO TAKE HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! Tyson crumbles down to the mat but he slowly drags himself up to his feet. BUT IT’S CANDICE THIS TIME WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK THAT TAKES HIM DOWN TO THE MAT!
Persephone: 🙄 Tells me how this match is going to go doesn’t it.
Rich Russillo: Well let’s not count out Tyson Zane yet he was undefeated for four months on the indies. :wow: Plus the numbers advantage with Dante Hernandez in his corner as well, it’s the beginning of the match anyways let’s not try and make assumptions.
James Peters: Tyson grabbing his head as he’s up to his feet, RUNNING TOWARDS CANDICE AND GOING FOR A CLOTHESLINE! But it’s Candice that ducks under it! Tyson turning around as he takes a wild swing, BUT CANDICE RUNS FORWARD AND TAKES TYSON DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A SLING BLADE! WHAT A DISPLAY BY CANDICE BLAIR!
Persephone: So you were saying, Rich?
Rich Russillo: I didn’t say anything. :krabs:
Rich Russillo: Candice grabbing Tyson by the head and dragging him up to his feet. But Tyson is showing life as he sends punches towards her gut to force her backwards! Candice is forced to let go as it allows Tyson to get up to his feet. He grabs Candice by her arm and sends her to the ropes with an Irish whip, AS THIS TIME HE TAKES HER DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A CLOTHESLINE! This might be the comeback Tyson needed as Candice slowly gets up to her feet, AS TYSON LIFTS CANDICE OFF THE GROUND AND GOES FOR A SPINEBUSTER!
James Peters: But it’s Candice who slams a elbow into the side of his head to force him to drop her before he can fully execute the Spinebuster!
Persephone: So close, yet so far. Wake me up when Candice wins alright?
Rich Russillo: Candice stumbles back and recollects herself as Tyson turns around and runs towards her! BUT CANDICE MANAGES TO REFOCUS JUST IN TIME AS SHE CONNECTS WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE AGAINST THE SKULL OF TYSON TO TAKE HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! CANDICE QUICKLY DROPPING DOWN TO THE GROUND AND HOOKING THE LEG AS SHE GOES FOR THE PIN!
James Peters: WAIT! DANTE HERNANDEZ PULLS THE REF OUT OF THE RING! DANTE JUST SAVED TYSON’S CHANCES JUST A LITTLE LONGER!
Persephone: :wtf: I understand partners are supposed to be supporting but you need to realize when people are just fucking losers.
Stew-O: Candice should’ve got the win right there but Dante saves his partner just in time, and she does not look happy! Candice yelling over at the ref as Tyson recollects with Dante at ringside, and look at the both of them just mocking Candice. BUT CANDICE ISN’T TAKING THAT SO LIGHTLY AS SHE RUNS TO THE ROPES AND LEAPS THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE TO TAKE EVERYONE DOWN AT RINGSIDE!
James Peters: Candice quickly grabbing Tyson and rolling him into the ring as she follows and slides in herself. Candice making her way towards him, WAIT! TYSON QUICKLY ROLLING CANDICE UP! NO WAY THIS IS IT FOR THIS MATCH!
Persephone: You’re right, no way. Because Candice took out the ref as well with that Suicide Dive you fucking bozo.
Rich Russillo: Well I don’t know if that was intentional or not but Candice might’ve just inadvertently saved herself in this match! Tyson is absolutely furious as Dante is quickly waking the ref up and rolling him into the ring in hopes of preserving his chances in this match. BUT I DON’T THINK HE SEES CANDICE BEHIND HIM AS SHE GRABS HIM AND DROPS HIM DOWN INTO A GERMAN SUPLEX!
James Peters: Definitely not a good strategy for Tyson as this match has not fared well for him so far. Tyson slowly dragging himself towards the ropes in hopes of getting away from Candice, BUT CANDICE KICKS TYSON RIGHT IN THE FACE TAKING HIM RIGHT BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND! Tyson retreating onto the apron and grabbing onto the ropes as he drags himself up. But Candice is already on the attack as she makes her way over.
Persephone: :comeagain: How is he even breathing?
Rich Russillo: Tyson sending his shoulder right into the gut of Candice before she can approach him any further! Tyson quickly entering into the ring as he grabs her by the arm and pulls Candice in, BEFORE SENDING A KNEE STRIKE TOWARDS HER GUT! Tyson has another chance as he grabs Candice and sends her into an Irish whip towards the ropes and back, BUT CANDICE LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND CONNECTS WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE!
Persephone: Wow he had a chance for all of 2 seconds. Just go for the pin Candice, please, end my misery.
Rich Russillo: I bet she would’ve already if Dante wasn’t outside of the ring helping Tyson every step of the way. You know Candice has to be pissed off about what’s going on at the moment and she has to find everything in her power to make sure that she gets through this because the numbers game is beginning to pile up.
James Peters: Tyson is taken down to the ground as Candice grabs him and brings him back up to his feet. Tyson attempting to send forearms towards the face of Candice but Candice isn’t going to go quietly as she sends her own forearm strikes towards the face of Tyson! Before Candice stops everything, grabbing him by his head and sending a knee towards his gut! Tyson grabbing his gut as he stumbles back and is forced to drop down to a knee, AS CANDICE TAKES HER LEG AND DROPS TYSON WITH AN INVERTED STOMP FACEBREAKER!
Persephone: This is a whole new definition of boring and I’ve watched Drake King matches. Can we just keep this show going before adopted silicone bitch takes up too much TV time?
Rich Russillo: :lupe: Well I think Candice shares the same sentiment as you because it looks like she wants to put this match away right now. As Candice grabs Tyson and sets him up, she’s going for it! AND DROPS TYSON DOWN INTO THE HAIR PULL GORY SPECIAL!
James Peters: Candice quickly climbing up to the middle turnbuckle now as she positions herself, I think we know what she’s going for here! AS SHE’S GOING TO EXECUTE THE CANDY DESTROYER! FLIP PILEDRIVER INCOMING!
Persephone: :noah: STOP YOU FUCKING WHORE!
(Dante out of desperate measures grabs Tyson by his arm and pulls him out of the ring and out of harm’s way before Candice can do anything. Candice is clearly at her wit’s end at this point as she looks on completely dumbfounded)
Rich Russillo: CANDICE HAS HAD ENOUGH AS SHE CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP ROPE AND TAKES BOTH DANTE AND TYSON DOWN ONCE AGAIN! Candice not bothering to get Tyson into the ring as she quickly jumps onto the apron, this doesn’t look good for Tyson Zane whatsoever!
James Peters: CANDY DESTROYER OFF THE APRON AND TO THE RINGSIDE FLOORING! TYSON IS COMPLETELY KNOCKED OUT COLD AS CANDICE GRABS TYSON AND ROLLS HIM INTO THE RING BEFORE HOOKING THE LEG WHILE DANTE IS DOWN! PIN ATTEMPT! PIN ATTEMPT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Diva’ plays up again as Candice pulls herself up to a knee with a smile on her face. She blows loose strands of her hair away as she gets up to her feet, along with getting her hand raised in victory by the ref. She climbs up to the top rope and poses at the top before continuing her celebration from there)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… CANDICE BLAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Persephone: IT’S DONE! THANK GOD IT’S DONE-
(Candice jumps off the top rope and quickly turns her head towards the stage as ‘Sk8er Boi’ by Avril Lavigne plays up to a mixed reaction from the crowd. Sierra Bradford makes her way out to the stage with a sarcastic smile on her face as she claps her hands together stopping at the stage. Candice raises an eyebrow but knows what she needs to do while she has an opportunity as she takes a mic from the timekeeper’s area as Sierra slowly makes her way down the ramp. ‘Sk8er Boi’ fading out after a bit as Sierra begins to speak as she stops at the ramp)
Sierra Bradford: Congratulations Candice. You showed you were able to do what everyone else is perfectly capable of doing. And that’s beating the bottom of the barrel here on Voltage. Though a struggle, I’ll cut you some slack because you’re one yourself. Must be hard to hear the truth from someone rather than being pampered and surrounded by lies-
Candice Blair: You see that right there! That’s not the Sierra Bradford we all know. Can’t you see? Snap the fuck out of it. Week after week you come out here acting like you’re doing the right thing. But the only thing you’ve been doing is listening and believing everything that abuser has told you. What part of that can you not understand? Take a moment, just a moment, to listen to me Sierra. All this time you’ve been attacking me for no good reason. You need to realize that the only thing I’m doing is trying to help you.
(Sierra’s face scrunches up as she hears Candice. Gripping her mic tighter she keeps her calm. Opening her eyes and looking towards Candice with a stern look on her face as she once again begins to speak)
Sierra Bradford: The last thing I need is help from someone like you. How many times do I have to say this, to not just you too! Mind your fucking business. I’m glad I could tell this to you upfront, but I’m tired of this bullshit. I’m tired of playing these games with you and concerning myself with things that shouldn’t matter in the first place. From Harper to you to Holly, I’ve been wasting my EAW career focusing my attention on each and everyone of you. It’s time I focus on myself, because I’m the only one that matters.
(Candice realizes that the only thing that Sierra has been doing is being uncooperative. She nods slowly as Sierra speaks before continuing right after her)
Candice Blair: You want to say all of these things about me. How I shouldn’t have done this and how it was the mistake of a lifetime apparently doing this. But why shouldn’t I have done the right thing? You, Sierra, are in denial. I’ve only been trying to be kind to you and you’ve been shoving me away. Despite what you’ve said, I’ve meant no harm whatsoever. But you know what? That’s ok.
Sierra Bradford: Oh really?
Candice Blair: Yeah! Because you did it to yourself. You’re talking about me regretting the stuff I did. I don’t regret shit, but you’re going to be the one that regrets rejecting my kindness. Maybe it’ll take me beating some sense into you at Battle of Egypt to realize that. But maybe after the Free-Per-View, you’ll take some time to think. You’ll realize you’re surrounding yourself with bad influences who have only dragged you to the dark side. And then? Maybe someday we’ll actually see the real Sierra Bradford. But until then? That’s your surprise to behold at Battle of Egypt.
(‘Diva’ plays up as Sierra looks absolutely pissed at the ramp. It takes everything in her to walk away as she turns around and leaves for the backstage area. Candice continues her celebration in the ring as that’s the last shot seen as Voltage fades away from the area.)
(The scene pans out to the Universal Women’s Champion herself, Darcy May Morgan backstage. Earlier, she found out that she would face the winner of the Women’s No Way Out match at Pain for Pride. There’s a part of her that’s a bit nervous about who could possibly walk out as the winner of that match, but she knows that she’ll be more than ready to face whoever wins the match at Pain for Pride. Darcy walks down the hallway with the utmost confidence. As the face of women’s wrestling, she needs to carry herself with the most poise and confidence that she possibly can. If she believes that she’s the face of women’s wrestling, other people should. Finally, she makes it to the women’s locker room, but the door swings open.)
(Cameron Ella Ava appears on the other side of the door as the virtual crowd explodes in a reception. The two competitors who will face each other at Battle of Egypt stare down at each other. The two of them don’t seem to hate the other, but they both recognize the other’s abilities and a victory over the other would be great for them going into Pain for Pride. Darcy forms a smirk on her face as Cameron looks at the Brit.)
Darcy May Morgan: I gotta know. Why not join your husband in retirement?
(Cameron Ella Ava seems unfazed by that question, which makes Darcy May Morgan continue her questioning. The Universal Women’s Champion asks the question that everyone has been dying to know.)
Darcy May Morgan: Why are you back, Cameron?
(This results to Cameron Ella Ava giving Darcy May Morgan a cute smile and taps Darcy on the nose like she’s a small child and says: )
Cameron Ella Ava: You’ll find out in a few. 😉
(Cameron Ella Ava steps aside and away from the presence of Darcy May Morgan. The camera follows Cameron as she heads towards the guerrilla area, waiting for her entrance music to begin. “ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli blasts through the speakers of the World 1 Theatre as it is met with a thunderous ovation from the crowd! Cameron walks through the curtain as the crowd showers here with some extreme love. She soaks up the reception of the crowd.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME BACK TO EAW AND SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE… EAW HALL OF FAMER… ‘THE GODDESS’….CAMERON ELLA AVA!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Cameron Ella Ava looks to be in the best shape of her life. You would never be able to tell that she had her face rearranged by an equalizer or had a child. She looks incredible.
Persephone: Don’t worry, Rich. I’ll send you the gif of the equalizer bashing into her face.
James Peters: Can you be nice? This is the first time that people are seeing Cameron Ella Ava in more than a year. She is a completely different version of herself. It was an amazing performance from her at Grand Rampage —
Persephone: She made herself be useful by being one of Rexy’s eliminations. If only Cuntven could have done the same thing… :wow:
Rich Russillo: It was announced on Fight Grid that Cameron Ella Ava would be headlining Battle of Egypt: Clash in Cairo as she takes on the Universal Women’s Champion, Darcy May Morgan! She hasn’t been back five minutes and finds herself in a poster.
James Peters: Her power. :wow:
Rich Russillo: :wow:
(The camera pans to Cameron Ella Ava inside the ring as she grabs the microphone from Bella Braxton. Cameron thanks the ring announcer as she takes her place in the middle of the ring. “ULTRAnumb” fades as the cheering of the crowd is still going strong. She tries to look for an opportunity to speak, but the reception of the crowd is making it difficult for her to do that.)
Cameron Ella Ava: Wow…
(Cameron Ella Ava is at a complete loss for words as the virtual crowd begins to chant: “WELCOME BACK!” at the returning Elitist. She takes the moment to let the crowd have their voices being heard. This is truly one of the first moments in over a year, where she gets to stand in the ring and listen to the crowd and their response for her. In a way, it almost makes her a tad emotional. She never believed that she would be standing in a ring, let alone standing without a walker and continuing her wrestling career, when it was basically robbed from her a year ago. Having her return at Grand Rampage was something that not many people expected from the former World Champion, who believed that the power of Ryan Adams’ flaming equalizer had basically left her for dead. Looking at the virtual fans and being able to soak in this moment truly means the world to her.)
Cameron Ella Ava: From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for your love and support.
(The crowd applauds Cameron Ella Ava as she tries to think about what else she wants to say next.)
Cameron Ella Ava: I have been completely moved by the love and sport that I’ve received for the past year. From my career-ending injury to my entire pregnancy to my beautiful baby boy and everything else in between, I am moved that the EAW Universe has continued to show their love and support in everything that I have done. It was truly a tough adjustment to accept the end of my professional wrestling career to accepting the role of becoming a mother. It wasn’t something that I planned to happen, but when me and Jamie got the news that they didn’t want to put me through certain shots because I was about six weeks pregnant, I couldn’t believe it myself. There I was, at the peak of my wrestling career and so stubborn to do what I can to get back in the ring and I had an entire baby inside of me. It derailed any plans that I had to return to the ring. There was a part of me that saw this as a sign that it was time up to lace up my boots and call it a day. I went from the role of a wrestler to the role of becoming a mother and there’s still things that I’m trying to learn, but my husband, Jamie has been my rock through it all. From catching flights as soon as he’s not needed for Showdown to coming to all of the ultrasound appointments and not complaining once. He has been so amazing. He was an amazing husband, but he’s an even better father and our son could not have a better role model than having ‘The Ace’ as a father figure. We’re both learning things everyday with Hathaway and one of the lessons that we wanted to instill on him was to never give up on your dreams.
(Cameron Ella Ava looks at the Pain for Pride XIV logo above the rafters.)
Cameron Ella Ava: One of my dreams was supposed to reach my tenth Pain for Pride and have myself headline the entire thing as Answers World Champion, but that was taken away from me by Ryan Adams, but I settled for the second best thing and that was to watch my husband, my soulmate and everything get his moment as he knocked the fuck out of ‘The Gawd’ and became the Answers World Champion.
(The virtual crowd pops, remembering ‘Gawd versus Ace’ at Pain for Pride last year.)
Cameron Ella Ava: My Pain for Pride moment was to be able to see him get his moment as sappy as that sounds. It was able to watch him overcome the doubts that he had in his mind and end the feud that Ryan Adams was determined to win. It was one of the most mind-fucking rivalries that he had ever taken apart of, but Jamie became stronger than ever. He is one of the strongest individuals I have ever met and to have him as the father of my child is something that I am always amazed about. Throughout this whole road to recovery, he has stood by my side, supporting me and my journey to get back inside this ring. Even before I said that I wanted to get back to the ring after Hathaway was born, he knew that it was always something that crossed my mind and seeing him completely kill it on Showdown this season inspired me to bust my ass off and make sure that I don’t miss out of Pain for Pride in Inglewood. I’ve sat in the bleachers and watched him completely dominate the scene on Showdown and prove to be the ‘Ace’ of this company. His success became mine, but surprisingly enough, my success was his as well. I was perfectly content with our little family and the life that we were building with each other. I could look back in my career and believe that I did everything that I could. Jamie shared that same sentiment with me and at the start of the New Year, we began to adjust to a normal family life, but still, he knew that I longed to get back into wrestling and he didn’t talk me out of it. All he told me was: “You took a backseat and let me be the Ace. Now, I am going to take a backseat and let you be the Goddess.”
(The virtual crowd cheers as Cameron Ella Ava tries to maintain her emotions.)
Cameron Ella Ava: I never let a man ‘let’ me do anything, but I understood where he was going with that before he went to this whole monologue about how I should shine and whatnot. We spent a good chunk of our careers saving each other and having our backs. We have gone above and beyond your typical marriage vows and we’re not ashamed about it. Thanks to my inner strength, his support and the contagious laughter and smile of Hathaway, Cameron Ella Ava is back!
(The virtual crowd cheers as Cameron Ella Ava feels a sense of empowerment over what she declared. It’s seen by the smile on her face.)
Cameron Ella Ava: I think the million dollar question that everyone — including Darcy May Morgan— in the back is wondering is why I’m back? Is it the World Championships? Is it the main event of Pain for Pride? Is it to beat the shit out of everyone who wished harm on me as I was laying in a hospital bed withering away in pain? No worries, I got my own shit list when it comes to people that talked shit behind my back and were too pussy to say it to my face, but I’ll get to all of you when I’m able too. 😘 I have been in the best mental state than I’ve been in years and as of right now, my intentions aren’t to pursue any sort of championships at the moment. I’m a simple woman and I want to face the best competition I possibly can. It’s one of the reasons why I’m on Voltage and not Showdown or Dynasty. I want to go up against any man or woman who step up to me and it’s one of the reasons why I jumped on the opportunity to return during Pain for Pride season and face one of the biggest stars in this company, Darcy May Morgan for a hell ton of blood money and of course, get myself on the Pain for Pride card.
Cameron Ella Ava: My tenth Pain for Pride and in California? It’s a dream scenario for me. It’s been something that I wanted to happen since Pain for Pride II as I was in the audience hoping that I would find myself on that Pain for Pride stage in the future. It may seem like a cliche dream, but I have to promise that nineteen year old Cameron Ella Ava that I need to make it to that Pain for Pride stage in California. Someone, who made a promise to all of her sisters, that they would all find themselves in that stage in some sort of way. It seems like that dream is going to come true in some way for all of us. Consuela, Camille and Candice have been putting in the work, trying to make sure that they secure their spots at Pain for Pride and I am going to make sure that I do the same thing.
Cameron Ella Ava: There’s a ton of people who would have loved to see me just stay at home and be a mother. They would have the concept of Cameron Ella Ava being out of the spotlight, but the spotlight goes where I fucking go and that’s to the Pain for Pride stage. Whoever I face, it doesn’t matter, but much like I plan to do for Darcy, I will give them the best match of their fucking career. Now, if you excuse me, I got a flight to catch.
(Cameron Ella Ava drops the microphone as “ULTRAnumb” blasts through the speakers as soaks in the reception of the crowd before slowly making her exit in the ring.)
James Peters: Cameron Ella Ava is on Voltage and she’s looking for competition! Perfect for her, there is no brand that has competition like the Voltage brand! I do think that she’ll be a perfect fit for the brand!
Rich Russillo: This Cameron Ella Ava is inspired, motivated and has an idea of who she is. I do think that she’s in a better mindset than before and that’s something that Darcy May Morgan will need to take under consideration at Battle of Egypt!
Persephone: Oh god, I didn’t think that she’d stop talking! Can we move on to Rex?!?
(Voltage fades to a PSA with Ronan Malosi as he warns everyone about the ankle lock and why it’s the worst submission in wrestling. He ends the PSA trying to teach everyone how to escape the submission until realizing he can’t, leaving him in a lot of pain.)
(SCREEN BAR — EARLIER THIS WEEK.)
(The scene pans to the Poon Palace in Miami, Florida. We see various rooms of the Poon Palace; one for each sexual preference and fetish before it goes down to the dungeon. Some of them are sex dungeons, which were seen with Azrael a while back #RIPTHEBIGHOMIEAZRAEL; however, there’s one towards the end of the hall with the initials “S.D.” on it which obviously stands for Steroid Dawg, TLA’s most trusty companion. A moment passes before TLA is seen climbing down the stairs of the dungeon with a couple of t-bone steaks on a fishing pole. As he walks towards Steroid Dawg’s room, TLA walks past a couple of rooms. At least, two of them are being occupied by some of their usual clients, but happily, nothing about what is happening in those dungeons as seen. TLA finally stops at Steroid Dawg’s room as he delivers a knock on her door and rings the doorbell.)
TLA: Steroid Dawg, it’s me! ¡Abre la puerta por favor!
(Steroid Dawg doesn’t open the door.)
TLA: Babygurl, are you in there?
(TLA knocks on Steroid Dawg’s door again, but no answer. This time, it makes ‘La Pantera Sexual’ a bit of concern.)
TLA: I got some t-bone steaks hot off the grill for you, gurl. We always like to keep things fresh in the Poon Palace! 💯
(Still, no answer from Steroid Dawg as TLA reaches into the pocket of his business blazer for the set of keys to every room in the Poon Palace, including Steroid Dawg’s room. He places the key into the lock and opens the door.)
TLA: Babygurl, you got me scared for a moment! Couldn’t you hear me —WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT!?!?!?
(If TLA could have had a heart attack, it would have been in the particular moment of Steroid Dawg looking at a Jennipurr poster with her and a few Victoria Secret ‘Angels.’ TLA instantly drops the t-bone steaks in utter disbelief as he continues to look at the room. It looks a lot less like Steroid Dawg’s room and more like a shrine for Jennipurr, Ahren Fournier’s cat. The room is lit by candles that are surrounding the edges of the room. A huge poster of Jennipurr is in the center of the walls of her room, but there are also smaller Polaroid pictures of Jennipurr on the vertical sides of the walls consisting of some modeling photoshoots and next to some models. TLA’s eyes are scattered everywhere and he can’t seem to believe that Steroid Dawg had transitioned his room to a Jennipurr worship room.)
TLA: When I said, it would be nice to hang a couple of posters around here and liven up the place, this isn’t what I meant!
Steroid Dawg: Bark! Bark! Bark! (Translation: You said to make the room more like myself, papa.)
TLA: Is this your room or Jennipurr’s room? :wtf:
Steroid Dawg: Bark! Bark! (Translation: My room, duh! 🙄)
TLA: I have always been supportive of your phases and creativity. I let you be you in mi casa, but this shit has got to go! This is the enemy that we’re talking about!
(TLA begins to take out a polaroid picture off the wall, but Steroid Dawg begins to growl as the National Elite Champion.)
TLA: :whoa: Okay, I won’t do that, but let me explain something to you, mija. Can I give you that father-daughter talk that we see sometimes in ‘La Rosa de Guadalupe?’ I got no white rose, but imma drop some facts right now, so hear me out. Look, you know how protective I am of you. I know that you a strong and independent woman who don’t need no man fighting her battles. You pissed on Ronan Malosi and fucked up Drake King that one time, so I know that you’ll be able to beat anyone’s ass when I need the help. You’ll be at my corner and Jennipurr will be in Ahren’s — at least, that’s the plan, but we’ll see if the Egyptians wanna risk animal cruelty at Battle of Egypt, but we not trying to cost EAW any dinero this time around. What was I going with this talk? Oh yeah, we don’t trust that gringo Ahren or that pussy that he likes to carry around. Those two are nothing, but evil. We get that Jennipurr is some hot shot now that she’s a cat model, but you’ve been the top dawg for a lot longer than Jennipurr has been around.
(TLA begins to pet the black coat of Steroid Dawg’s fur. Steroid Dawg doesn’t seem to be too focused onto what TLA has to say as her eyes are looking straight at the television as another GivenchyxJennipurr commercial is being aired. Steroid Dawg is looking at the television with awe as TLA seems quite irritated that Steroid Dawg would not be paying attention to the lovely talk that he’s having with her.)
TLA: I was speaking from the heart and you ain’t even listening. I hate it here. :mjcry:
(Steroid Dawg doesn’t even listen to TLA’s last statement and that angers the National Elite Champion who grabs the remote and shuts the flat screen television off. This causes for Steroid Dawg to growl.)
TLA: I was speaking from the corazón and you ignored that. Now, that I fully got your attention, lemme prepare the rest of the speech that I got. Yeah, we don’t trust Ahren or that pussy that he carries around. Those two are nothing, but trouble and will do what they can to get the National Elite Championship in their clutches. I know that Jennipurr is your new muse in life and that you see her as the inspiration to get mainstream and all that shit, but you have always been that bitch and it’s not because you’re a female dawg. You always been that bitch. You have been the top animal in this company and no one is going to take that spot away from you, babygurl. You are superior to Jennipurr in every way possible and I need to keep it real with you because whatever I do to that gringo Ahren at Battle of Egypt, will not make Jennipurr happy and any potential friendship or relationship because I support the LGBTQ+ in the Poon Palace. By the way, ¿tú eres gay?
Steroid Dawg: Bark! Bark! Bark! Bark! :wtf: (Translation: Of course not! Why do you always ask me this question once a month?)
TLA: Abuela Pantera has said that you look…kinda…butch. :lupe: I keep assuring her that you just work out with me and we’ve been putting you in a strict diet, but if you gay, I’m not gonna judge. I’m gonna love you regardless. You know that?
(Steroid Dawg nuzzles into the chest of TLA. A sweet and loving moment between owner and pet. A knock is heard on the door as TLA and Steroid Dawg look up to find Michelle McGillislutty by the door.)
Michelle McGillislutty: TLA, someone is in the main room of the palace. She goes by the name ‘Jennipurr.’
(Steroid Dawg begins to bark anxiously as TLA seems to be a bit caught off guard that Jennipurr is at the Poon Palace. Steroid Dawg is scrambling for something before pulling out a poster rolled up before running out of the room. TLA shortly follows her after. It pans to the main room of the Poon Palace as Jennipurr, Ahren Fournier’s cat is sitting on a velvet red cushion. Next to her are two personal bodyguards that Ahren had entrusted Jennipurr to be around while he was doing some negotiations with her for her next set of bookings. Steroid Dawg seems more than starstruck as TLA and Michelle McGillislutty make their way up the stairs and into the main room. Next to Jennipurr, happens to have two boxes with giant bows on top of them.)
Jennipurr: Meow…meow…meow…meow… (In translation: I have decided to be here on behalf of my father, ‘Le GOAT’ and the next National Elite Champion, Ahren Fournier. Before I carry on the message that ‘The GOAT’ has passed along, I have brought presents for Steroid Dawg and TLA!
(One of the bodyguards lays the present in front of Steroid Dawg. Steroid Dawg pulls on the bow which unties the box. He opens the box and pulls out a collage of selfies of Jennipurr looking like the model that she is. Steroid Dawg is more than blessed with the present as it’s signed with a paw from Jennipurr.)
Steroid Dawg: Bark! Bark! Bark! Bark! (In translation: the gift is amazing. I have been a huge fan of you for the past few months, so this will go well with my room.) Bark! Bark! Bark! *slowly unrolls the poster of Jennipurr that she had in her mouth* (In translation: I hope that I’m not being annoying, but can I have your autograph?)
Jennipurr: Meow… meow…meow… meow…meow… (In translation: My dad is gonna kill me, but I can’t deny my fans the blessing of me.)
(Jennipurr gets the stamp pad and dips her paw before stamping her paw on Steroid Dawg’s poster. A few exchanges of words are said between the dog and cat before the other bodyguard hands TLA the other present that Jennipurr brought to him. TLA pulls the bow and unboxes the present. He pulls out a frame which has the picture of Ahren Fournier standing TLA over TLA from one of their previous encounters. He pulls out a note which reads:)
“I hope you look at this photo real closely because this is what will happen at Battle of Egypt. You are trash, TLA. You fucking suck. You don’t deserve to be National Elite Champion. That title will look better on me than it does with you. Did I mention that you suck? Look, it requires so much effort to write you a note. Sigh, I’m not good at this and I already sent my intern home at the time I wrote this note. But, look at the box, I left something for you…”
(TLA looks at the box before a bomb of glitter explodes on his face. TLA is coughing up a storm as Jennipurr has a huge grin on her face. As the glitter settles, he looks back at the note from Ahren Fournier.)
“Lolz, I knew it would be soooo easy to trick you. Gullible af…”
TLA: You think this is funny, pussy?
(Before he could lash out in Jennipurr or the bodyguards, they have truly disappeared without a trace. The only two people left are TLA and Steroid Dawg who is enjoying her present from Jennipurr. TLA throws the frame across the room in anger as he goes to clean up the glitter from himself. The scene ends here.)
(Inside the ring is where Voltage returns, and standing inside of it is Bella Braxton as she’s prepared to call the next match.)
Bella Braxton: The following tag team match is scheduled for one fall, and it is for the UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!
(“Fire Storm” A by Herman’s Langschwert, Wolfgang Killian begins to play and the crowd doesn’t hold back its boos for Ronan as he comes strolling out from the back. A smirk on his face, Ronan looks prepared to take care of business.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first-
(‘The Only Thing They Fear is YOU’ by Mick Gordon interrupts Bella, catching her off guard as coming out from the back is Ryan Wilson with a microphone in hand. He dismissively waves at her, shaking his head as he motions for her to lower her microphone.)
Ryan Wilson: Miss Braxton, it seems you have failed to do your job properly so allow me to do it for you and show you how it’s done! Ah-HREM! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN MEMBERS OF THE EAW UNIVERSE FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD! SHOWDOWN AND ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING PROUDLY BRINGS TO YOU IT’S SOON…TO…BE… EAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS OF THE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLD!!! RONAN MALOSI!!! AND YOURS TRULY!!! CHAINED….FURYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!
(Ryan’s music starts back up as he and Ronan make their way down the ring, with Bella looking put off by Ryan’s rude interruption. She rolls her eyes and shrugs, sighing as they eventually come to enter the ring.)
James Peters: After getting IDOL-GUN to agree to a Unified Tag Team Championship Match here tonight on Voltage, Ryan and Ronan are looking to make up for their Grand Rampage losses by becoming Tag Team Champions!
Rich Russillo: It’s definitely a task ahead of them, but if they’re so sure of their chances, then we might see new champions here!
Persephone: Rex lost Grand Rampage so fuck everything.
(‘The Day’ by Porno Graffitti takes over, and IDOL-GUN come out from backstage looking pretty unenthused with their competition for tonight before they look to their titles, and then back to each other with amused smirks before heading down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Next, weighing in at a combined weight of 231 pounds… they are the current and defending EAW Unified Tag Team Champions… Hikari Kanno and Miku Sakai… IDOL-GUN!!!!
Rich Russillo: It didn’t seem like they were interested in facing these two at all, but Chained Fury kinda forced their hand with Ryan and Ronan literally breathing down their necks, and now here we are!
James Peters: Just getting them off their backs and shutting them up about it seemed more like it, but who knows what Ryan and Ronan could bring to the table tonight! They faced off against them back at King of Elite with The Realm and Maidens of Malpractice also in the match, but tonight, they’re the only two teams present!
Persephone: Let me know when Captain Charisma announces that he’s realized the EAW World Championship Match at Pain for Pride needs Rex’s presence.
(IDOL-GUN enters the ring with the championships held up, taunting Ronan and Ryan, the latter of whom is quick to start mouthing off about him and Ronan taking the titles! But will tonight be their night?! The EAW Universe was about to find out as the referee handed the titles off to ringside before calling for the bell!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Ryan looks all ready to go getting himself in the ring across from Hikari, but both members of IDOL-GUN don’t look impressed at all! They actually seem pretty over this whole match-up but they agreed to it to get Chained Fury off their backs; they might be regretting it though judging from their bored looks :lupe:
Persephone: It’s gotta be that or it must be Ronan’s breath still smelling like shit from that time when they ran into him and Ryan at Grand Rampage. Those were Miku’s words, not mine :lupe:
Rich Russillo: Poor Miku, I hope she’s recovered since then :mjlol:
James Peters: Ryan wants to lock up in the middle of the ring but Hikari isn’t in any rush to engage, instead turning to talk to Miku for a moment- AND RYAN’S DONE ENOUGH WAITING AROUND! RYAN RUNS AT HIKARI FROM BEHIND AND CLUBS HER OVER THE BACK OF THE HEAD! MIKU TRIES TO TAKE A SWIPE AT RYAN BUT HE’S ALREADY OUT OF RANGE AND DRAGGING HIKARI BY HER HAIR BACK TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!
Rich Russillo: RYAN COMES DOWN ON HIKARI WITH A NUMBER OF STOMPS BUT SHE’S STILL TRYING TO GET UP! RYAN WITH A SWIFT KICK TO THE FACE THAT RAISES HIKARI TO HER KNEES, AND NOW A LOW CLOTHESLINE TO TAKE HER BACK DOWN!
Persephone: Appalling. Rex wouldn’t have allowed this to happen.
James Persephone: AND NOW RYAN BRINGS HIKARI UP TO HER FEET FOR A SUPLEX, SLAMMING HER DOWN TO THE RING MAT! HIKARI TRIES TO RAISE UP- BUT RYAN WILSON WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK AND HIKARI GETS KNOCKED INTO AN EMPTY CORNER OF THE RING! RYAN RUNS IN AFTER HER AS SHE GETS TO HER FEET-
Rich Russillo: HIKARI SIDESTEPS HIM AND RYAN COLLIDES WITH THE TURNBUCKLES! HIKARI RIGHT THERE BEHIND HIM WITH A SCHOOLBOY PIN!!!
Persephone: This isn’t over? Gross. Ryan kicks out and Hikari failing to hold him down for a three count just goes to show why Rex should’ve had her entry spot in Grand Rampage also so he could’ve had two chances to win. 😒 What was she doing there anyway? She’s a Tag Team Champion!
James Peters: A Tag Team Champion for the time being; Ryan and Ronan having a shot at these titles to themselves should have everyone suspicious and looking out for something they might have up their sleeves.
Persephone: If it’s an end to this match then I’m all for it; I’m ready to get the hell out of here 😭
Rich Russillo: Ryan hurries up to his feet and tries to get his hands on Hikari before she can get up entirely, but the champion strikes with an uppercut that stops Ryan right in his tracks! Hikari kicks him back into the corner and unleashes a ruthless attack of kicks and stomps and punches! Hikari’s had enough of Ryan! But Ryan tries to fight out only for Hikari to capture his arm!
James Peters: RELEASE BUTTERFLY SUPLEX FROM OUT OF THE CORNER! RYAN CRASHES TO THE MAT AND TRIES GETTING UP BUT HIKARI RUSHES AHEAD OF HIM IN TIME FOR A SNAPMARE, FLIPPING RYAN TO THE MAT AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES TO BACK FOR A RUNNING KICK-
Rich Russillo: RYAN DUCKS AND TAKES HER DOWN INTO A ROLL-UP!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT IT’S NOT ENOUGH! HIKARI KICKS OUT AND THEY GET UP, HIKARI DUCKING A BIG BOOT AND SHE STOMPS THE BACK OF THE KNEE BELONGING TO RYAN’S OTHER LEG! RYAN COLLAPSES TO A KNEE AND HIKARI JUST STRUCK WITH A NASTY LOOKING SPIN KICK TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD!
James Peters: Hikari grabs him and takes him over to Miku! Miku tags in and there goes Hikari with a snap suplex- MIKU SLINGSHOTTING FROM THE APRON AND INTO THE RING WITH A SLINGSHOT SOMERSAULT SENTON! MIKU COMES CRASHING DOWN ON RYAN AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: Shit-breath sprints from Chained Fury’s corner and breaks up the pin to keep this boring match going; Ronan is soooo annoying :noah:!!! And now he’s stomping the little Asian girl when he’s not even legal, and he’s completely ignoring the referee telling him to get the fuck out. Just call the damn DQ already. 🙄
Rich Russillo: Ronan’s arguing with the official but Hikari is having none of this, coming into the ring as well! Hikari turns Ronan around but Ronan’s ready for her, striking her over the head! Hikari isn’t taking that without swinging back though, punching the hell out of Ronan in return! Miku comes up to her feet and begins fighting alongside her tag team partner, the two of them doubling up on their challenger!
James Peters: But Ronan isn’t without his either, as Ryan gets to a vertical base as well! Ryan and Ronan trade strikes in the middle of the ring, and the referee doesn’t know what to do! Ryan and Ronan! Miku and Hikari! AND CHAINED FURY KNOCKS THE TAG CHAMPS BACK WITH DOUBLE RIGHT HANDS!!!
Rich Russillo: IDOL-GUN STUMBLES BACK TO THE ROPES BUT THEY STAY ON THEIR FEET! BUT CHAINED FURY INTENDS TO SEE TO IT THAT IT’S NOT FOR LONG, AS THEY CHARGE AT THE CHAMPS-
James Peters: BUT MIKU AND HIKARI PULL DOWN THE TOP ROPE, SENDING RYAN AND RONAN OUT OF THE RING!! RYAN AND RONAN GO OVER THE TOP ROPE, HITTING THE GROUND ON THE OUTSIDE!!! Chained Fury is left to collect themselves and pick themselves up- BUT THE CHAMPS RUN ACROSS THE RING, BOUNCING OFF THE OPPOSITE ROPES BEFORE THEY BOTH COME RUNNING BACK TOWARD CHAINED FURY!!!
Rich Russillo: MIKU STRIKES DOWN RYAN WITH A SUICIDE DIVE- JESUS FUCK!!! HIKARI JUST PLUMMETED TO THE GROUND AS RONAN MOVED OUT THE WAY! HIKARI WENT FOR A TOPE CON HILO AND RONAN WISELY GOT OUT THE WAY!!!
(A replay shows of Hikari diving over the top rope and an obviously panicked Ronan Malosi realizing she’s coming his way before he throws himself down toward the apron, leaving Hikari to crash to the ground where Ronan previously stood.)
Persephone: Shouldn’t we call a medic or something? Because I’m pretty sure Hikari is dead. Couldn’t think of a better way to call for the end of this match.
James Peters: Miku is understandably concerned for Hikari as she comes over to her- BUT RONAN JUST SHOVED HER DOWN TO THE GROUND FROM BEHIND! RONAN GRABS MIKU AND SENDS HER INTO THE RING, BEFORE GOING OVER TO RYAN AND ROLLING HIM IN!
Rich Russillo: Sakai is obviously irritated with Ronan for getting in the way, and gets to her feet before trying to kick him through the ropes although Ronan is already making his way back around to Chained Fury’s corner!
James Peters: Miku’s yelling at Ronan for his interruption- BUT MIKU NEEDS TO TURN AROUND! TOO LATE! RYAN WILSON JUST SCOOPED HER UP INTO A BACK SUPLEX! MIKU GETS SENT DOWN TO THE MAT ON THE BACK OF HER HEAD!
Rich Russillo: Ryan hauls Miku up and launches her toward Chained Fury’s corner with a release suplex, letting her crash to the canvas before getting to his feet and kicking her while she’s down into the turnbuckles. Ronan tags in and he’s got quite the smirk on his face as he heads out to the middle of the ring, while Ryan hoists Miku up!
James Peters: RYAN THROWS MIKU INTO THE CORNER FOR A BUCKLE BOMB AND MIKU BARELY STAYS ON HER FEET AS SHE STUMBLES OUT- RONAN NEARLY TAKES HER HEAD OFF WITH THE HUGE CLOTHESLINE HE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH! MIKU SAKAI IS DOWN AND HIKARI HAS YET TO MAKE IT BACK UP ONTO THE APRON!
Persephone: That asshole is busy taunting Miku and the audience instead of going for the pin after the move he and Ryan just did on Miku, and it’s really no surprise he lost the Interwire Championship with the time he wastes for undeserved gloating. Does he really think anyone cares? Because I don’t.
James Peters: Ronan really does need to get into control of this match, which Ryan makes clear by shouting at him for showboating and not immediately trying to secure a victory. Malosi seems to finally understand and goes over to Miku, reaching down to grab her-
Rich Russillo: BUT MIKU PULLS RONAN DOWN INTO A SMALL PACKAGE PIN!! IDOL-GUN IS ABOUT TO RETAIN!!!
James Peters: RONAN KICKS OUT AND HE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED HAVING BEEN SURPRISED LIKE THAT! Ryan warned him about underestimating Miku and Hikari, and Ronan nearly paid the price for it! Ronan hurries to his feet but Miku rolls through Ronan’s legs toward an empty corner and Ronan whirls around trying to go after her!
Rich Russillo: Miku comes out the corner though into a scintillating wheelbarrow bulldog that takes Malosi face-first into the mat! Ryan looks annoyed as ever! Ronan has a hand to his face as he’s down on the mat; he’s clearly concerned that Miku just might’ve ruined his face :lupe:!!
Persephone: Trust me, he doesn’t have a damn thing to worry about :mjlol:
Rich Russillo: He managed to hook up with Alissa Brady, so he must have something going for him; maybe it’s his big, bald head. Is that something you’d be into, ‘Seph? ‘Cause I’m your guy to give you exactly what you want :mjlit:
Persephone: Can someone back there listening in production cut off the power to Rich’s headset? I think me and James are good without him.
James Peters: Ronan scrambles to crawl over to the ropes for a moment to breathe, turning around RIGHT INTO A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO THE FACE! MIKU NOW REACHING DOWN TO RAKE THE EYES! FEELING THE WRATH OF THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION IS RONAN MALOSI! THE REFEREE COMES OVER MAKING A COUNT, BUT MIKU IS SET ON TORTURING RONAN!!
Rich Russillo: MIKU DIGS HER NAILS AT HIS EYES AND RONAN IS SHOUTING, FLAILING WHILE RYAN SHOUTS AT THE REFEREE TO COUNT FASTER! RONAN REACHING OUT FOR SOMETHING, ANYTHING TO PUT A STOP TO THIS- AND RONAN GRABS MIKU TO SEND HER OUT THE RING AND SHE HITS THE GROUND WITH A THUD!
Persephone: Action outside the ring where pinfalls and submissions aren’t counted – this is just what I need right now. 🙄
James Peters: Miku picks herself up after hitting her head on the floor- BUT RONAN COMES AROUND THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING AND HE JUST CONNECTED WITH A MASSIVE LARIAT! THE FORMER INTERWIRE CHAMPION STRIKES DOWN THE REIGNING TAG CHAMP AND NOW HE PICKS HER UP, SPINNING HER AROUND BEFORE SENDING HER INTO THE FRONT OF OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! FUCK!
Rich Russillo: RONAN ISN’T FINISHED AS HE GETS A HOLD OF MIKU AND DEADLIFTS HER FROM THE GROUND INTO A SUPLEX OUT HERE IN FRONT OF US!! MIKU ARCHES UP OFF THE GROUND IN PAIN, AND RONAN COMES DOWN ON HER WITH A SERIES OF STOMPS! At the quick calls of Ryan, Ronan sends her into the ring where she sees Hikari back on the apron, she tries to make it over but Ronan has her ankle! He turns her over AND THE ELBOW STRIKES MIKU IS TAKING TO THE FACE ARE VICIOUS!!! THE REFEREE WARNS ABOUT THE HOLD HE HAS ON THE HAIR AND RONAN SIMPLY PINS HER DOWN TO SHUT HIM UP!!
James Peters: Ronan is already looking frustrated that Miku won’t stay down, and if he’s still upset over how things have gone for him since Grand Rampage, he’s going to have to put those emotions aside! IDOL-GUN are no slouches, even Ryan tried to make that clear to him, but I’m not sure if the message exactly got through to him in time for tonight :lupe:
Persephone: Clearly not for this shit to still be going on like it is. I’m pretty over the whole situation but let’s not act surprised when it kind of took a pep-talk from Ryan into convincing Ronan this was the way to go after Ronan was so upset when he questioned Ryan about not being there to help in his defense against Bronson.
Rich Russillo: And I do believe that Ryan made a fair point when he countered with asking where Ronan was when Ryan was up against Xavier Williams at Under Siege.
James Peters: Ronan tosses Miku into Chained Fury’s corner with a biel throw and he makes his way over as Ryan calls for a tag back into the match! Ryan steps in and the two of them lay into the champ with kicks and stomps despite the referee’s demands for Ronan to leave the ring! They hoist Miku up onto the top turnbuckle! They both start to climb up alongside each other in front of Miku, but what have they got planned?!
Rich Russillo: They both get an arm around Miku, THEY’RE GONNA SUPERPLEX HER FROM THE TURNBUCKLES! RONAN AND RYAN TRY LIFTING HER UP BUT THEY DON’T REALIZE SHE’S GOT HER LEG HOOKED AROUND THE ROD CONNECTING THE TURNBUCKLE TO THE POST! THEY TRY TO LIFT AGAIN! BUT NO! MIKU IS TOO STRONG!
James Peters: AND RYAN GETS PUNCHED DOWN FROM THE ROPES! RYAN CRASHES TO THE MAT AFTER A RIGHT HAND FROM MIKU RIGHT TO THE FACE, HE’S DOWN ON THE MAT- A PUNCH FROM MIKU TO RONAN KNOCKS HIM DOWN ONTO RYAN!! RYAN FRUSTRATEDLY PUSHES RONAN OFF HIM, YELLING FOR HIM TO GET OFF HIM-
Rich Russillo: MIKU SAKAI WITH THE DIVING CROSSBODY DOWN ONTO RYAN WILSON OUT OF CHAINED FURY’S CORNER! MIKU ROLLS OFF RYAN AND THEY RACE TO THEIR FEET, RYAN LOOKING FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT MIKU DUCKS AND SLIDES BETWEEN HIS LEGS, PULLING ON ONE ALONG THE WAY TO TRIP HIM UP! RYAN FALLS BACK TO THE MAT AND MIKU RUNS OFF THE ROPES FOR A RUNNING BLOCKBUSTER TO DRIVE RYAN’S HEAD TO THE CANVAS!!!
James Peters: Ryan pushes himself up BUT MIKU GETS HER ARMS AROUND HIM FROM BEHIND! MIKU’S GONNA TRY TO GERMAN RYAN AND IT’S GONNA BE A FEAT! MIKU GETS RYAN OFF THE MAT- NO! RYAN WRIGGLES HIS WAY BACK DOWN TO THE MAT AND RYAN BREAKS HER HOLD BEFORE SPINNING AROUND IN A WRISTLOCK-KICK COMBO! MIKU DOUBLES OVER AND RYAN HAS HER IN A FRONT HEADLOCK TO LIFT HER UP INTO A SUPLEX!
Rich Russillo: BUT BEFORE RYAN CAN FALL BACK, MIKU ENDS UP DROPPING DOWN BEHIND HIM TO SLIP OUT THE HOLD! RYAN TURNS NOT EVEN REALIZING THEY’RE FACING IDOL-GUN’S CORNER UNTIL HE LEAPS AFTER MIKU TRYING TO CATCH AND STOP HER, JUST AS MIKU DIVES TOWARD HIKARI-
James Peters: TAG! HIKARI RACES INTO THE RING WITH A BASEMENT DROPKICK BEFORE RYAN CAN MAKE IT UP! HIKARI IMMEDIATELY ROLLS OVER AND GETS HIM IN A HEADLOCK JUST AS HE’S TRYING TO GET TO HIS FEET, AND HIKARI KEEPS HIM CLOSE TO DELIVER KNEE STRIKES UP TO HIS HEAD AND FACE AS HE’S BENT OVER BEFORE TAKING HIM DOWN WITH A SNAP SWINGING NECKBREAKER!!!
Persephone: I thought she died earlier for real, but I guess not. Just means this shit gets to continue and all this screen time means their simps are gonna eat this shit up. Hikari drags him up and rattles him with some boring forearm strikes to back him against the ropes before whipping him across the ring.
Rich Russillo: Only for Ryan to counter and Hikari gets sent to the other side of the ring, bouncing back- RYAN LEAPS ONTO HER IN A THESZ PRESS!! RYAN SHOWS HE ISN’T DONE FIGHTING AS HE HAMMERS DOWN ON HIKARI AND HE HOLDS NOTHING BACK, SET ON WINNING THESE UNIFIED TAG TITLES WITH ALL HE’S GOT!!
James Peters: Ryan comes off of her and whips her into a corner of the ring, he charges in- but Hikari stops him with a back elbow! Hikari fights her way out the corner but Ryan goes trading blows, the two of them battling it out in the middle of the ring! AND NOW RYAN REELS BACK, IT’S GONNA BE A HUGE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!
Rich Russillo: NOBODY’S HOME! HIKARI DUCKS AND RYAN GETS WHIRLED AROUND INTO A STIFF KICK TO THE GUT! “KANNO SUPER BUSTER”!!! GUTWRENCH SITOUT POWERBOMB!!! HIKARI DROPS THE FORMER SHOWDOWN GENERAL MANAGER AND SHE MAKES THE COVER!!!!
James Peters: RONAN MAKES THE SAVE!!! Ronan’s talking shit to Hikari- BUT HERE COMES MIKU TAKING RONAN BY SURPRISE WITH A DROPKICK TO THE LEG! RONAN GOES DOWN TO A KNEE AND MIKU LOOKS TO DISPOSE OF HIM FROM THE RING, BUT RONAN KEEPS HIMSELF ON THE APRON! The referee is trying to direct traffic but Miku’s just ignoring him as she swings at Ronan- BUT HE CAPTURES HER ARM AND LIFTS HER UP AND OUT ONTO THE APRON! HE’S GOT HIS HAND AROUND HER THROAT AS HE SHOUTS HER IN HER FACE!!
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) Chained Fury are the next Unified Tag Team Champions!
Miku Sakai: (off-mic) Your breath… it still smells like shit 🤢
Rich Russillo: Guys, Miku doesn’t look so good :lupe:
Persephone: Who can blame her? I wouldn’t be either if I had Ronan’s breath practically melting the skin off my face.
James Peters: BUT HIKARI SHOVES RONAN DOWN FROM THE APRON, EFFECTIVELY GETTING HIM OFF MIKU! BUT LOOK! FROM BEHIND! RYAN LIFTS HIKARI OUT INTO MIKU AND THEY BOTH GO DOWN TO THE FLOOR!
Rich Russillo: Ryan drops down on the outside and finds Hikari but she pushes him back as she tries to make it up, Ryan capturing her and running her back-first into the apron! Miku sees this and tries to be of aid but Ronan clobbers her from behind! Miku throwing a back elbow into his gut to fight him off AND NOW A DROPKICK TO SEND RONAN FALLING BACKWARD INTO THE BARRICADE! RONAN GOES DOWN AND RYAN KICKS MIKU FROM BEHIND! HE ROLLS HIKARI INTO THE RING!
James Peters: Hikari slowly starts to get up to her feet with the help of the ropes between her and Ryan, AND RYAN WILSON SLINGSHOTS OVER HER INTO A SUNSET FLIP PUSHED OVER INTO A JACKKNIFE PIN!!! RYAN HAS HER SHOULDERS DOWN!!! AND MIKU IS RACING INTO THE RING!! THE REFEREE IS MAKING THE COUNT!!!
Rich Russillo: BUT RONAN BEATS MIKU INTO THE RING! HE’S NOT OUT! HE SLIDES IN AND MIKU GETS IN GOING AFTER RYAN, RONAN CHARGING AT MIKU!!
James Peters: RONAN GOES LEAPING AT MIKU TO STOP HER FROM BREAKING THE PIN FROM BEHIND RYAN!!!
Rich Russillo: HIKARI’S SHOULDER- RONAN COLLIDES WITH RYAN, BREAKING THE PIN?! WHAT?!
James Peters: MIKU SENT RONAN INTO RYAN WITH A DROP TOE-HOLD, TRIPPING HIM UP!! SHE BAITED HIM IN, CAUSING HIM TO ACCIDENTALLY FALL INTO RYAN AND HELP IN STOPPING THE COUNT! RYAN TURNS AROUND TRYING TO SEE WHO HIT HIM, AND HE’S LOOKING PISSED OFF!
Ryan Wilson: (off-mic) What the hell was that?! I just had her pinned!
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) It was an accident! She tripped me!
Persephone: These two bitches are arguing and it’s clearly getting personal, probably because they both seemingly abandoned each other when they needed each other in some crucial moments; it’s not like Ryan’s really that useful to Ronan now that he’s not Showdown’s GM anymore anyway. But the champions are on their side of the ring regrouping, hopefully on a plan to end this because I don’t even know who’s even actually legal anymore, but I also kinda stopped paying attention and I just also don’t care.
James Peters: I think Ryan’s under the impression he was closing in on having this won for Chained Fury but Hikari’s shoulder had come up off the mat as well! AND FROM BEHIND, MIKU AND HIKARI SEND RYAN COLLIDING INTO RONAN WITH A DOUBLE DROPKICK!! THERE’S NO MISTAKING WHO’S RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT, AS RONAN FALLS THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT THE RING!
Rich Russillo: IDOL-GUN takes Ryan and goes to position him in the nearby corner, the two of them having to work together by getting under Ryan’s arms and lifting him up on the top turnbuckle! But that’s Chained Fury’s corner and Ronan just sneakily tagged himself in before ducking back down – IDOL-GUN doesn’t even realize it!
James Peters: Hikari gets Ryan onto her shoulders before walking out the corner and Miku gets climbs to the top rope! Hikari turns back into position and Miku is ready for takeoff! “NEVER FADING IDOL FAME”!!! NO! RONAN JUST SHOVED MIKU DOWN TO THE FLOOR AND THAT’S ONE HELL OF A FALL TO TAKE FOR MIKU!!
Rich Russillo: AND INSIDE THE RING, HIKARI’S AT A LOSS FOR WHAT TO DO! RYAN SLIPS DOWN BEHIND HER INTO A KNEELING NECKBREAKER, HIKARI POPPING UP INTO A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE FROM RONAN! HIKARI STUMBLES ON HER FEET AND RONAN CONNECTS WITH A CHOKESLAM BACKBREAKER!! RONAN WITH THE PIN!!!
Persephone: I’m gonna petition for 6-minute time limits because this is insane. Hikari kicking out and for what?! Just stay down!
James Peters: I don’t exactly see IDOL-GUN being the type to just lay down for the likes of Ryan and Ronan, or any other team for that matter. Ronan’s taking exception to IDOL-GUN’s persistence, however, coming stand while holding Hikari’s wrists AND HE STOMPS DOWN ON HER CHEST! RONAN WITH REPEATED STOMPS, PUTTING AS MUCH FORCE AS HE CAN INTO THOSE!!
Rich Russillo: Ronan finally relents, dragging Hikari up and putting her into position to be lifted up onto his shoulders! Ronan has Hikari in position for a powerbomb only for her to fight her way down and she stumbles backward with Ronan charging- AND HIKARI JUST DUCKED OUT THE WAY OF A BIG BOOT AND IT STRUCK RYAN OFF THE APRON!! RONAN IS SHOCKED BEFORE HE TURNS AROUND, JUST IN TIME TO SEE HIKARI COMING AND HE POPS HER INTO THE AIR- BUT HIKARI FLINGS RONAN ACROSS THE RING WITH A HURRICANRANA!! RONAN ENDS UP IN IDOL-GUN’S CORNER! AND HIKARI TAGS MIKU BEFORE DRAGGING RONAN UP!!
James Peters: RONAN TRIES TO FIGHT HIKARI OFF NOT EVEN REALIZING SHE’S NOT THE LEGAL COMPETITOR ANYMORE! AND HIKARI CAPTURES RONAN AND HOOKS HIM UP AS MIKU ENTERS THE RING!! “ONLYENDS”!!! THEY PUT RONAN DOWN AND MIKU MAKES THE COVER!!! HIKARI TRIES TO BLOCK RYAN FROM GETTING INTO THE RING BUT HE PUSHES PAST HER AS THE REFEREE COUNTS!!
James Peters: RYAN TRIES TO MAKE THE SAVE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“The Day” by Porno Graffiti begins to play and IDOL-GUN quickly retrieves their championships, wanting nothing to do with sticking around for the post-match celebration seeing as how this was a match they wanted nothing to do with initially.)
Bella Braxton: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS, AND STILLLLLLL THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…. HIKARI KANNO AND MIKU SAKAI, IDOL-GUN!!!
James Peters: I have to say that I do believe Chained Fury put up a solid fight here, and they’ve got nothing to be ashamed of when it comes to that! What all they put into this can’t be taken away from them, but IDOL-GUN proves that their reign is far from over!
Rich Russillo: Ronan and Ryan had a few mishaps, especially at the end there with Ronan big booting Ryan off the apron, but that’s nothing that can’t be learned from going forward! Should they find themselves with another shot later on down the line, they just may understand how much closer they are in their efforts of winning them. I’m sure IDOL-GUN’s simps are definitely pleased though and can rest easy after tonight, knowing that they achieved yet another title defense.
(Miku and Hikari leave with their championships raised, not acting at all surprised but nonetheless enjoying that they still have the Unified Tag Team Championships in their possession. As their music fades out, Ronan comes to in the ring, Ryan trying to assist him to his feet before Ronan shoves him away! Even the referee is taken aback!)
Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) You really couldn’t break up the pin in time?! Where were you?!
Ryan Wilson: (off-mic) Me?! I tried even after you knocked me off the apron! You’re the one who wasn’t watching what you were doing twice in this match; you even ended up hitting me from behind! I could’ve brought those Tag Titles back to Showdown with us, but you weren’t doing your job or your part properly tonight!
(Ronan shoves Ryan once again in a fit of anger upon hearing that, but Ryan doesn’t back down, shoving Malosi back as well! The two of them get into a shoving war and start arguing over who’s to blame for the loss tonight, although not coming to truly physical blows. The referee still in the ring quickly tries to intervene and keep them separated, but he’s merely caught in the middle of an intense staredown between Ryan and Ronan. Truthfully, the referee might as well not even be there because these two are solely focused on each other and it looks like things could only get more heated from here!)
(However, Ronan shakes his head and leaves from the ring, walking up the ramp looking annoyed with what just happened while Ryan is left in the ring glaring in Ronan’s direction.)
Rich Russillo: Did we just witness the end of Chained Fury or are they still a team? Do you guys think they’re gonna be able to sort this out? :lupe:
James Peters: I… honestly can’t say. It seemed like they were able to keep their emotions in check for the most part, but there’s definitely some issues there that they’re going to have to address at some point.
Persephone: All these fallouts going on around here lately. But you know what’s going to last forever? The love me and Rex have for one another which is unbreakable, and the two of us being happy together is what really matters at the end of the day. People want what Rex and I have but our bond is one of a kind! 🥰
(Ryan remains in the ring watching Ronan make it up to the stage, both of them still staring each other down before the scene fades out.)
(Voltage fades to the backstage area, Sofia Clarke is seen standing in front of the camera. She has a microphone in her hand as usual, and as the camera fades to her the virtual crowd begins to cheer, knowing that her appearance usually leads to an announcement of some sort.)
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen.. At this time, please welcome Rex McAllister!
(The virtual crowd immediately begins cheering heavily as Rex McAllister walks into the camera’s view, but some of the cheers die down as they see the look on Rex’s face. He doesn’t look all too pleased, and it’s clear as day why seeing the result of the Grand Rampage match just one week ago.)
Sofia Clarke: Rex, last week you and twenty-nine other Elitists competed in the Grand Rampage match to see who’d get a ticket to the main event of Pain for Pride, and while you managed to win the Grand Rampage once before, things wouldn’t go your way this time around as Drake King managed to win the match. I know you and many others were looking to stop New Eden last week, so is there anything left you have to say following your failure to win the Grand Rampage?
(Rex remains silent for a few more seconds as if he was trying to collect his thoughts following such a loss, but finally he looks back up to answer Sofia.)
Rex McAllister: Last year was probably the biggest year of my career, and it all started with the Grand Rampage match. I won that match, Raven and I became Unified Tag Team Champions, I won the EAW Championship in the main event of Pain for Pride, I was inducted into the Hall of Fame, and the rest is history. 2020 was one of the greatest years of my career and who knows what my year would’ve been like had I come up short at Grand Rampage? I thought I’d be able to repeat history this year by winning my second Grand Rampage in a row, but things didn’t go my way. It’s disappointing, and that’s not just because I didn’t get that second Grand Rampage win. That loss doesn’t only hurt because I didn’t go back to back how I wanted to or because I didn’t even make it to the final four like I did both last year and in 2019, it hurts because of who the winner actually was. I’m sure you saw how everyone reacted at the end of the Grand Rampage match. All of the garbage being thrown in the ring, all of the booing, all of the hatred. That hatred was there because New Eden succeeded, and the winner of this year’s Grand Rampage match was their own Drake King. I’m not the only one that failed. We ALL failed, because New Eden got exactly what they wanted. They made it to the end of the Grand Rampage match. The worst case scenario became a reality. Drake King won the Grand Rampage match.
(The virtual crowd begins booing heavily. Not because of Rex, but because of the Grand Rampage winner, Drake. The fans’ reaction following the Grand Rampage match was anything but positive, and clearly Rex feels the same way.)
Rex McAllister: There’s a lot of reasons why Drake winning was the worst possible outcome and I think most of the people around here will agree with me when I say that. We all know what New Eden’s really about by now. We’ve been forced to listen to them for months now and unfortunately we couldn’t stop them from taking the Grand Rampage match from us, and when it comes to my own career it means I don’t have a clear road to Pain for Pride. Last year I was guaranteed to main event. I had a spot and it was because I overcame so many other Elitists in order to win the Grand Rampage match. This season hasn’t been pretty for me and I thought that the Grand Rampage match could’ve been where things changed just like it was last year, but now things are arguably worse than they were before. Now for the first time in a few years I don’t have a clear direction heading into the biggest show of the year. I can’t help but wonder where I’ll even find myself at Pain for Pride, because I’ve done this time and time again but at this stage of my career I fully understand that nothing’s guaranteed. I understand that after missing out on a second Grand Rampage victory that even making it on the Pain for Pride card won’t be that easy, but this isn’t the first time things looked rough for me and every single time things got tough I’ve found a way to keep moving forward. I’d love to main event Pain for Pride again. I’d love to win my fourth World Championship. I’d love to face Malcolm Jones.
(The fans begin cheering once again.)
Rex McAllister: There’s a lot of things I’d love to do at Pain for Pride, and a lot of that could’ve been accomplished with the Grand Rampage match but I didn’t get it. There’s still time until Pain for Pride though, and my chase to get back to the top isn’t over. It won’t be over until I’m right back where I was one year ago, holding the EAW Championship up high as I stand at the top of the mountain. My road isn’t clear just yet but I’m not going to give up, not when there’s still time for me to become Champion again. Earlier in the night Malcolm Jones said he’d be happy to defend his newly won EAW Championship in just a few week’s time, and Drake may be trying to stop Voltage from having their own Pain for Pride main event, but regardless of the outcome of his actions there’s still a lot of time until we finally reach the biggest show of the year. There’s still weeks to go before Pain for Pride where there may or may not be an EAW Championship match, and you know what that means? It means that there’s still a huge opportunity for me to become World Champion again, and while it may not be the main event of Pain for Pride, the main event of Battle of Egypt sounds pretty good.
(The virtual fans pretty much explode with excitement hearing Rex’s words, and even Sofia looks surprised. Rex McAllister and Malcolm Jones are without a doubt two of the best Voltage has to offer if not the entirety of EAW, and there’s no doubt that a match between the two for the EAW Championship would be huge.)
Sofia Clarke: Does this mean that you’re challenging Malcolm?
Rex McAllister: Yeah. Why not?
(As soon as Rex finishes, Malcolm Jones walks into the camera’s view to Sofia Clarke’s surprise with the EAW Championship on his shoulder. He actually doesn’t look too impressed by Rex at all.)
Malcolm Jones: Why am I not surprised you wanna be my Battle of Egypt challenger?
(Rex doesn’t say anything, instead standing up to the EAW Champion as they go face to face. Rex doesn’t look intimidated at all by the new Champion, having already made it clear that he wants the title.)
Malcolm Jones: Fuck it. You wanna go down as my first title defense? You got it.
(The virtual fans immediately begin cheering as loud as they can at the confirmation of Battle of Egypt’s EAW Championship match. Malcolm Jones walks past Rex and leaves the area having already said everything he needed to, and all Rex can do is nod having gotten exactly what he wanted in an EAW Championship match. Rex leaves as he walks in the opposite direction, leaving Sofia Clarke in the area still with the microphone in her hand.)
Sofia Clarke: Well, there you have it! Rex McAllister will be facing Malcolm Jones for the EAW Championship at Battle of Egypt!
(The cheering continues, as the fans are obviously extremely excited about the potential Championship match. Sofia has a smile on her face after the match announcement, even though she didn’t expect Malcolm to disrupt the interview the way he did. Finally, Voltage begins to fade away from the backstage area.)
(Voltage fades back to ringside for the final time tonight, and Bella Braxton stands in the center of the ring with a microphone in her hands.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen…. The following contest is a TAG TEAM MATCH, AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!
(‘It’s Corona Time’, the theme for the tag team between Terry Chambers and TLA, the Corona Hombres, begins to play. The virtual crowd begins cheering loudly as TLA makes his way out to the ring with his National Elite Championship, and while Terry Chambers follows behind it’s clear that he’s not in a playing mood. He just lost the EAW Championship after all, and the last thing he’d want now is to continue falling down the ranks. The former EAW Champion and the current National Elite Champion continue making their way down the ramp as Bella Braxton begins to speak.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first….. The team of… TTEEEERRRRYYYYYYYY CCCHHAAAAMMMMBBEERRRSSSS!!!!! AND THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION, TTTTTTTLLLLLAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
James Peters: We have a very interesting main event underway, but before we begin to mention that, just look at the face of Terry Chambers tonight. He’s not in the mood to play any games tonight, and I don’t blame him. He took a hard loss at Grand Rampage.
Persephone: :mjlol: Just look at these two losers. Imagine seeing a team like this and actually CHEERING for them. Terry already lost the title he didn’t deserve in the first place. Only a matter of time until TLA loses too.
Rich Russillo: Well… I’m not too sure what to think about the match they’re about to compete in tonight. This is going to be a good one.
(‘Bad Medicine’ by Bon Jovi hits, and the virtual crowd immediately begins booing heavily as Dr. Bethany Blue begins making her way down to the ring. It’s no secret that Constance Blevins and Dr. Bethany Blue aren’t exactly friends, and teaming up with each other is the last thing they’d want to do. Nonetheless, Dr. Blue continues making her way down to the ring as the virtual fans boo as loud as they can.)
Bella Braxton: And their opponents… Making her way to the ring…. Residing in Boca Raton, Florida… Weighing in at 125 pounds……. DOCTOR BETTHAAANNNYYYYYY BBBBLLLUUUUEEEEEEE!!!!!
James Peters: And here comes one half of the tag team competing against the Corona Hombres. Dr. Bethany Blue and Constance Blevins have been at each other’s throats for weeks. Can they really co-exist as a team?
(‘Forgotten’ by Avril Lavigne hits, and for the most part the virtual crowd begins cheering as Constance Blevins makes her way down to the stage with her Specialists Championship. She soon after makes her way towards the ring, not wanting to waste any time. She doesn’t look too happy about the match she’s in either, and as she eventually makes it to the ring she gets inside of the ring, telling Dr. Bethany Blue that she’s starting the match.)
Bella Braxton: And her partner…. From Baltimore, Maryland…. Weighing in at 120 pounds…. SHE IS THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION, COOONNNNNSSSTTAANNCCEEE BBBBLLEEVVVIINNNSSSS!!!!!
Persephone: I swear we have matches like this every few weeks and you idiots ask the same question every single time. NO! They can’t co-exist! Did you not see what happened at Grand Rampage? I don’t even care about either of these two and I can see the end of this match coming a mile away.
Rich Russillo: The end of the match? What do you mean?
Persephone: They’re gonna screw themselves over and the Corona Hombres will capitalize since they can’t win matches normally. Duh.
James Peters: Well, we’ll see about that I guess. :lupe:
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: It looks like Terry Chambers is starting this match with Constance Blevins- AND TERRY IMMEDIATELY POWERS CONSTANCE INTO THE CORNER! Terry Chambers is just coming off of the loss of his EAW Championship so I’m sure he’s not in the best of moods right now! This is the perfect opportunity for Terry to let out all that- BETHANY TAGS HERSELF IN! TERRY HAD CONSTANCE BACKED INTO THE CORNER AND BETHANY USED THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAG HERSELF IN! Both Terry and Constance look confused as Bethany enters the ring, and now there’s a kick to Terry’s side!
Rich Russillo: Dr. Bethany Blue is taking the fight to Terry Chambers as Constance Blevins is forced to exit the ring by the referee, AND TERRY CHAMBERS SWINGS FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT BETHANY DUCKS UNDER IT BEFORE TAKING OUT HIS LEFT LEG FROM BEHIND WITH A CHOP BLOCK! Terry Chambers is down to a knee, and that allows Bethany to get him in a headlock! Constance Blevins doesn’t look too amused after Bethany tagged herself in extremely early on, but Bethany seems to be doing alright for herself right now as Terry Chambers is stuck in that tightly applied headlock!
Persephone: Well of course Bethany’s doing fine. Look who she’s in the ring with. Terry Chambers is coming off of one of the worst World Championship reigns of all time. I mean, didn’t Terry spend like six months losing to Dr. Bethany Blue every time they stepped in the ring with each other? Bethany isn’t Interwire Champion anymore and I don’t know if she’ll ever win a title again since she’s not that good and wasted the majority of this season with Terry’s stupid sister, but she probably has what it takes to beat Terry. Hell, even I could probably beat Terry.
James Peters: Terry lifts Dr. Blue up, AND THE DOCTOR FLIPS OUT OF THE BACK SUPLEX ATTEMPT AND LANDS ON HER FEET! Dr. Bethany Blue now attempting to grab Terry’s leg for possibly a dragon screw, BUT TERRY MANAGES TO LIFT BETHANY UP OFF THE MAT INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION! Dr. Bethany Blue immediately begins punching away at Terry’s face to try and get him to let go, and she’s making Terry stumble but I don’t think he’s actually- WAIT A SECOND! WHAT DID BETHANY JUST DO!? Terry is holding his eye as Bethany drops down to the mat, AND NOW THERE’S A STEP UP ENZUIGIRI BY THE DOCTOR!
Rich Russillo: It looks like Bethany might have used her thumb to poke Terry in the eye while she was delivering all of those punches! The referee probably didn’t realize it was an eye poke thanks to the punches, and that poke just gave Bethany an opportunity to get right back into this! That was an extremely smart move by Bethany, and now the doctor sends Terry Chambers into the corner before charging in- AND DELIVERING A HUGE FOREARM SMASH! DR. BETHANY BLUE NOW RUNNING THE ROPES AS TERRY STUMBLES OUT OF THE CORNER-
Persephone: Yikes…. Terry nearly took her head clean off with that clothesline. She ran right into that one too. Bethany had the upper hand for pretty much this entire match but somehow Terry actually managed to get back into this. Terry now deadlifts Bethany before delivering a snap suplex, and now he drags her into the corner before tagging in TLA. I wish I could be happy to see Terry Chambers not in the match, but TLA really isn’t a good replacement. The “CoRoNa hOmBrEs” might just be the worst tag team ever.
James Peters: Terry Chambers lifts Bethany up into another suplex position as TLA hops up to the top rope, AND THERE’S A DIVING SUPLEX TAKEDOWN BY THE CORONA HOMBRES! WHAT AN AMAZING TAG TEAM MANEUVER BY THESE TWO AS TLA GOES FOR THE FIRST PINFALL OF THE MATCH!
James Peters: AND THERE’S THE KICKOUT! Dr. Bethany Blue remains in this match after all, and now TLA locks in a grounded rear chinlock! Dr. Bethany Blue doesn’t take too long to pull herself towards the ropes, and she manages to put her foot on top of the bottom rope! TLA pulls Bethany up to her feet, AND THIS ALLOWS BETHANY TO DELIVER A PUNCH TO THE MIDSECTION!
Rich Russillo: Dr. Bethany Blue now grabbing TLA and going towards the corner, before smashing TLA’s face into the top turnbuckle! Dr. Blue continues smashing his face into the turnbuckle, but TLA manages to finally stop himself by putting his foot on the middle turnbuckle, and that allows him to deliver a back elbow! TLA now hopping up onto the middle rope, BEFORE DIVING ONTO DR. BETHANY BLUE WITH A CROSSBODY! Just like that TLA has control of this match as Dr. Bethany Blue stumbles into the corner!
James Peters: TLA now charging in, AND THERE’S A RUNNING SPLASH! TLA now running the ropes-
Rich Russillo: BUT CONSTANCE BLEVINS ENTERS THE RING AND TAKES TLA DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE! When Bethany stumbled into the corner after the crossbody it looks like Constance used the opportunity to tag herself back into the match! TLA didn’t expect that at all, and that gave Constance the ability to take control of the match as both Champions are now in the ring! TLA is getting back up to his feet, AND CONSTANCE RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE GOING FOR THE ABOLISHMENT, BUT TLA AVOIDS IT BEFORE GRABBING CONSTANCE FROM BEHIND! GERMAN SUPLEX BY TLA!!!
Persephone: Nope. Constance landed on her feet.
James Peters: AND THAT ALLOWS CONSTANCE TO GO FOR A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ON TLA- JUST FOR TLA TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY! TLA now springing back up to his feet, AND HE DELIVERS A DROPKICK TO THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION! Constance Blevins now stumbles back up to her feet, and now TLA sends her into the ropes with an irish whip! Constance ducks TLA’s clothesline attempt, AND SHE REBOUNDS OFF THE OPPOSITE PAIR OF ROPES WITH A HUGE HURRICANRANA!
Rich Russillo: BUT TLA MANAGES TO ROLL BACK TO HIS FEET! TLA NOW CHARGES INTO CONSTANCE BLEVINS, AND HE GOES TO RETURN THE FAVOR WITH A HURRICANRANA OF HIS OWN BUT HE FACES THE SAME RESULT AS CONSTANCE ROLLS BACK UP! Constance Blevins now charging in, AND SHE FINALLY TAKES TLA DOWN WITH A HUGE SLINGBLADE! What an amazing back and forth between the Specialists and National Elite Champions! These two actually faced one on one weeks ago, and it looks like they know exactly what to expect from each other for the most part, making for an amazing clash between the two Champions!
Persephone: Amazing to who, exactly? I don’t know how anyone could find any of this entertaining. Constance Blevins is one of the most boring and bland Specialists Champions we’ve had in years and TLA is TLA. They might just be the least impressive Champions on the Voltage roster, but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised morons like you two are actually impressed by any of this. Rexy could do everything they’re doing ten times better. Why isn’t he National Elite Champion?
James Peters: Well… He just made it clear he wants the EAW Championship tonight.
Persephone: SO WHAT?? He can win both!!
James Peters: Okay.. Anyways TLA is back up to his feet, and Constance Blevins is attempting a suplex but TLA is using his size advantage to pull himself back down onto the mat! TLA manages to push Constance away, AND CONSTANCE CHARGES BACK IN BUT TLA MANAGED TO GET HIS FOOT UP, CAUSING CONSTANCE TO CHARGE RIGHT INTO HIS BOOT! TLA now jumping out onto the apron as Constance stumbles back, AND TLA DELIVERS A HUGE SPRINGBOARD BACK ELBOW! TLA has been putting his athleticism on display here tonight, and this is exactly why he’s the National Elite Champion!
Rich Russillo: Constance Blevins is slowly finding her way back up, but TLA sends her shoulder first into the ringpost! TLA now moving back out onto the apron, AND TLA NOW CHARGES IN BEFORE GOING FOR A MODIFIED 305 AROUND THE RING POST- BUT CONSTANCE BLEVINS MANAGED TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY! TLA ENDED UP SLIDING THROUGH THE ROPES AND BACK INTO THE RING, BUT HE JUST FELL RIGHT INTO CONSTANCE’S GRASP! HUGE SPINNING HEEL KICK BY CONSTANCE BLEVINS, CAUSING TLA TO STUMBLE INTO THE CORNER! Constance now charging into the opposite corner before running in, AND NOW THERE’S THE SHINING LIGHT! CONSTANCE BLEVINS NOW WITH THE COVER!
Persephone: UGH, TLA KICKS OUT! Why do they always have to kick out!? It’s always meaningless matches like this that drag out for way too long too! It doesn’t make any sense!
James Peters: Dr. Bethany Blue is screaming at Constance to tag her in, and Constance really doesn’t seem to want to, but after TLA kicked out of that huge move I think Constance was left with no choice, and now there’s the tag! Dr. Bethany Blue is now in this match and she’s all over TLA!
Rich Russillo: Dr. Bethany Blue is stomping a hole into TLA right now, and now she pulls TLA up, BUT TLA DELIVERS A FOREARM TO BETHANY! That forearm got the Doctor to stumble a bit, but she immediately goes back on the offensive as she delivers a knee to TLA’s midsection! Dr. Bethany Blue now ramming TLA into one of the unoccupied corners, and once again she begins stomping away at the National Elite Champion! It looks like tagging Dr. Blue in was the right choice for Constance!
Persephone: This match should’ve been over by now and Constance knows that. If TLA didn’t decide to suddenly be resilient then Constance wouldn’t have even needed to tag Bethany in.
James Peters: TLA MANAGES TO CATCH BETHANY’S FOOT! BETHANY WAS STOMPING ON TLA AS MUCH AS SHE COULD BEFORE THE COUNT OF FIVE, BUT TLA FINALLY MANAGES TO PUSH HER AWAY! TLA finally getting back up, AND DR. BETHANY BLUE GOES FOR A LARIAT BUT TLA DUCKS UNDER IT, AND NOW THERE’S THE CARTEL KICK! THE CARTEL KICK CONNECTS WITH DR. BETHANY BLUE, AND NOW THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION PULLS HIMSELF ON TOP OF BETHANY FOR THE COVER-
(Right before the referee could begin counting, ‘How You Like That’ by BLACKPINK hits, causing the virtual crowd to immediately begin booing.)
TLA: (off-mic) :comeagain:
(Ahren Fournier begins walking down the ramp with a grin on his face, taking his time as TLA slowly makes it back up to his feet, completely abandoning the pinfall.)
James Peters: What’s he doing here??
Persephone: No idea, and honestly if he’s not here to end the match then I don’t know why anyone should care.
Rich Russillo: Ahren Fournier is making his way down to ringside, and it looks like he’s trying to get a good look at this main event match! TLA has no idea what’s going on or why Ahren’s here, but-
James Peters: DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST PULLED TLA INTO A SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP! DR. BETHANY BLUE IS GONNA STEAL THE MATCH!
James Peters: NO! TLA MANAGED TO KICK OUT! TLA JUST BARELY MANAGES TO KICK OUT BEFORE THREE! Ahren Fournier’s appearance nearly cost TLA the match- TJD!!! THE TJD CONNECTS AND DR. BETHANY BLUE FALLS ON TOP OF TLA FOR ANOTHER COVER! THIS TIME THE MATCH MAY END! THIS MAY BE IT!
Rich Russillo: NO! ONCE AGAIN TLA KICKS OUT!! Both Bethany and TLA must be hurt after hitting each other with their big moves, and now it looks like both Elitists are crawling towards their respective corners! Both TLA and Dr. Bethany Blue are looking for the tag!
(As both Elitists crawl to their corners, TLA jumps out and manages to tag in Terry Chambers, but instead of tagging in Constance Blevins, Dr. Bethany Blue grabs onto the ropes and pulls herself back up.)
Rich Russillo: WHY DIDN’T SHE TAG CONSTANCE IN!? SHE HAD THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO TAG OUT!
James Peters: TERRY CHAMBERS SENDS DR. BETHANY BLUE OUT OF THE RING WITH A CLOTHESLINE BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES! TOPE CON HILO TO DR. BETHANY BLUE!!! TLA made the right decision tagging out of the match after Ahren Fournier’s arrival! Terry has been itching to get back into this and now’s his opportunity! Terry now rolling Dr. Bethany Blue back into the ring, AND HE GOES FOR THE TAG TO TLA! Terry sends Dr. Bethany Blue into the ropes, TERRY DROPS HER WITH A DROP TOE HOLD BEFORE TLA CONNECTS WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!
Rich Russillo: And now there’s another tag! Dr. Bethany Blue doesn’t even seem to know where she is right now, BUT TERRY AND TLA POP BETHANY INTO THE AIR- BEFORE BETHANY DROPS TLA WITH A DDT! THE CORONA HOMBRES WERE SETTING UP FOR ANOTHER TAG TEAM MOVE BUT SOMEHOW DR. BETHANY BLUE MANAGED TO SAVE HERSELF- JUST FOR TERRY TO IMMEDIATELY GRAB HER AND SEND HER ACROSS THE RING! Terry Chambers is still pretty fresh after not being in the ring for a while, AND NOW TERRY CHARGES TOWARDS DR. BETHANY BLUE- BUT BETHANY GETS OUT OF THE WAY, CAUSING TERRY TO GET SENT SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE POST!
James Peters: Dr. Bethany Blue now waiting for Terry to pull himself out of the corner….. TJD- WAIT NO! DR. BLUE WENT FOR THE TJD BUT TERRY CAUGHT HER FOOT- BEFORE SIMPLY USING HIS POWER TO FLIP BETHANY OVER ONTO HER BACK! Dr. Bethany Blue was just flung like a ragdoll thanks to Terry Chambers, and now Terry quickly grabs her BEFORE GOING FOR THE CHAMBERS OF PAIN- NO! DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST BARELY MANAGES TO WRAP HER LEGS AROUND THE ROPES, FORCING THE ROPE BREAK! Dr. Bethany Blue has been fighting smart tonight, and she may have just saved herself from taking a loss!
Rich Russillo: DR. BETHANY BLUE WITH A FOREARM TO TERRY! As soon as Terry Chambers released the hold, Dr. Bethany Blue used the opportunity to strike! Terry Chambers was caught off guard by the attack, and now Dr. Bethany Blue doesn’t let up! Forearm after forearm to the former EAW Champion- BUT TERRY GRABS BETHANY NOW BEFORE RAMMING HER INTO THE TURNBUCKLES-
Rich Russillo: :krabs: AND CONSTANCE BLEVINS JUST TAGGED HERSELF IN- BUT TERRY CHAMBERS TAKES HER OFF THE APRON WITH THE MOMENT OF SILENCE! Constance didn’t even have time to get in the ring because Terry saw the tag coming! Terry used Constance and Bethany’s inability to work together as a real team against them!
Persephone: Wow. Finally Terry did something smart. That, or he’s just so stupid he hit Constance on accident. I really don’t want to give Terry credit for anything so hopefully it’s the latter.
James Peters: Terry Chambers is a one man wrecking crew at the moment, AND NOW TERRY BEGINS RUNNING THE ROPES JUST LIKE HE DID WHEN HE SENT BETHANY OUT OF THE RING- BUT DR. BETHANY BLUE GETS IN TERRY’S WAY, CAUSING TERRY TO DELIVER A HUGE POUNCE, SENDING THE DOCTOR THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT OF THE RING!
Rich Russillo: Both Dr. Bethany Blue and Constance Blevins are outside of the ring, and it looks like Terry Chambers has an idea! Terry is running the ropes as both women get back to their feet, AND TERRY CHAMBERS TAKES THEM DOWN WITH A HUGE DROPKICK THROUGH THE ROPES! TERRY CHAMBERS WITH SOME OF HIS OWN ATHLETICISM ON DISPLAY TONIGHT AS HE SENDS CONSTANCE BLEVINS BACK INTO THE RING, AND NOW THERE’S THE COVER ON THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION!
James Peters: BUT CONSTANCE JUST GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Terry Chambers isn’t wasting any time! Terry lifts Constance up onto his shoulders and he makes his way to the center of the ring- possibly so he doesn’t make the same mistake he did at Grand Rampage against Malcolm Jones, BUT CONSTANCE BLEVINS BEGINS DELIVERING ELBOWS TO THE SIDE OF TERRY’S HEAD! CONSTANCE SLIPS BEHIND TERRY BEFORE SHOVING HIM INTO THE CORNER, AND NOW SHE CHARGES IN! SHINING LIGHT BY THE SPECIALISTS-
Rich Russillo: AVOIDED BY TERRY! TERRY AVOIDS IT BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! THE COVER NOW BY TERRY CHAMBERS!
James Peters: AND DR. BETHANY BLUE BREAKS IT UP!!! Dr. Bethany Blue breaking up the pin so her team wouldn’t lose the match, and I’m surprised she’s even back in this after seemingly being taken out for the count moments ago- WAIT A SECOND! TLA!! TLA IS IN THE RING RIGHT NOW AND HE’S GOING RIGHT AFTER DR. BETHANY BLUE! Dr. Bethany Blue isn’t the legal competitor so she’s not supposed to get involved, so now TLA is in the ring to settle things! Things have completely broken down here!
Rich Russillo: There’s not much the referee can do about this, this has become a full on brawl! TLA WITH A HUGE BICYCLE KICK TO DR. BETHANY BLUE, AND THAT CAUSES DR. BLUE TO STUMBLE TOWARDS THE ROPES! TLA now charging in- BUT DR. BETHANY BLUE MANAGES TO PULL DOWN THE TOP ROPE, CAUSING TLA TO FLY OVER THE TOP ROPE AND OUT OF THE RING RIGHT INTO AHREN FOURNIER, WHO’S BEEN WATCHING AT RINGSIDE THIS WHOLE TIME! It looks like Dr. Bethany Blue has managed to get the better of TLA after all of that- BUT HERE COMES TERRY CHAMBERS, SENDING BETHANY OUT ONTO THE APRON WITH A HUGE BOOT TO THE FACE!
Persephone: This is a mess.
James Peters: AND IT LOOKS LIKE THAT MESS ISN’T OVER, AS CONSTANCE BLEVINS CHARGES AT A DISTRACTED TERRY AND DROPKICKS HIM THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT OF THE RING! That took a lot out of Constance thanks to everything she took earlier, but all of the Corona Hombres were just sent out of the ring, giving Constance time to recover! Constance Blevins now getting back to her feet, and she tries to go out of the ring but the referee stops her, telling her that Terry Chambers needs to get back into the ring first! I don’t blame the referee right now. There’s way too much going on outside-
Rich Russillo: AHREN FOURNIER HITS TLA WITH THE PROTECT YA NECK!!!
James Peters: NO!! TLA DUCKED HIS ATTACK, AND AHREN FOURNIER JUST TOOK OUT TERRY CHAMBERS WITH HIS FINISHING MOVE WHILE THE REFEREE WAS DISTRACTED! AHREN ACCIDENTALLY HIT TERRY- AND NOW TLA GRABS AHREN BEFORE TRYING TO SEND HIM OVER THE BARRICADE! Ahren Fournier turns it around- BUT NOT FOR LONG AS TLA ELBOWS AHREN! TLA NOW RAMMING AHREN INTO THE BARRICADE, AND TLA SOMEHOW MANAGES TO SEND BOTH HIMSELF AND AHREN OVER THE BARRICADE! Ahren and TLA are engaged in a brawl right now, making their way through the virtual fans!
Persephone: Guess TLA just doesn’t care about his match anymore.
James Peters: :wtf: Ahren just attacked him, or at least tried to! Ahren Fournier is stumbling through the virtual crowd towards where the stage is, and TLA continues fighting! AHREN FOURNIER WITH A THUMB TO THE EYE THOUGH, AND THAT ALLOWS AHREN TO SEND TLA INTO ONE OF THE SCREENS!
Rich Russillo: This entire time Constance has been arguing with the referee, but finally Terry manages to roll back inside of the ring-
James Peters: THE ABOLISHMENT!!! TERRY CHAMBERS WAS USING THE ROPES TO TRY AND GET UP AFTER GETTING HIT WITH THE PROTECT YA NECK EARLIER, BUT CONSTANCE IMMEDIATELY CAPITALIZED AS SHE HITS TERRY WITH THE RUNNING KNEE LIFT! I don’t even know if she realized what went down outside of the ring, but it looks like this match might be coming to an end! Constance drags Terry away from the ropes, and now there’s the-
James Peters: :comeagain:
Rich Russillo: DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST TAGGED HERSELF IN! CONSTANCE BLEVINS HIT TERRY CHAMBERS WITH THE ABOLISHMENT AND SHE JUST TAGGED HERSELF IN!
(Constance Blevins watches in confusion as Dr. Bethany Blue steps inside of the ring with a grin on her face, dropping down onto Terry for the cover.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here are your winners…. THE TEAM OF DOCTOR BETHANY BLUE, AND THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION CONSTANCE BLEVINS!!!!
(At this point, TLA and Ahren Fournier’s brawl seems to have made its way backstage. The virtual fans are booing as ‘Bad Medicine’ hits, mainly because of Dr. Bethany Blue’s actions at the end, and Constance Blevins looks furious.)
James Peters: Wow. Where do I even start?
Persephone: How about the fact that this is finally over? That was a mess. An overly long mess between four awful competitors and I guess Ahren Fournier since for some reason he just had to be here.
James Peters: Constance Blevins and Dr. Bethany Blue get the win, but there’s so much that went into that! First, Ahren Fournier accidentally hit Terry Chambers with the protect ya neck as he was aiming for TLA, and after Constance hit the abolishment Dr. Blue tagged herself in and stole the victory! TLA and Ahren are gone now, and because of their brawl this unlikely duo won!
Persephone: Why was Ahren here anyway?
James Peters: Ahren would likely say he was just here to watch, but he was clearly there to distract TLA. He nearly cost him when he first came out, and in the end he’s part of the reason the Corona Hombres lost-
Rich Russillo: CONSTANCE BLEVINS HITS DR. BETHANY BLUE WITH A SUPERKICK! Constance Blevins just sent Dr. Bethany Blue rolling out of the ring! What was that about!?
James Peters: I think she didn’t take the end of that match too kindly. :lupe:
(Constance Blevins rolls out of the ring and grabs her Specialists Championship, waiting as Dr. Bethany Blue slowly gets up.)
Rich Russillo: CONSTANCE BLEVINS LAYS DR. BETHANY BLUE OUT WITH HER SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP!! Dr. Bethany Blue has already put Constance through a lot these past few weeks, and it looks like the Champion has had enough!
James Peters: Constance Blevins drags Bethany towards the steel steps before laying her face down onto the point of one of those steps, AND NOW SHE BEGINS STOMPING DOWN ON THE BACK OF BETHANY’S HEAD!! CONSTANCE STOMPING REPEATEDLY ON THE BACK OF DR. BETHANY BLUE’S HEAD AFTER LAYING IT DOWN ON THE CORNER OF THE STEP, AND NOW SHE PULLS THE DOCTOR UP BEFORE THROWING HER FACE FIRST INTO THE OPPOSITE PAIR OF STEEP STEPS!!
Rich Russillo: Constance Blevins just left Dr. Bethany Blue a broken mess! Bethany’s forehead has been busted open badly by all those stomps onto the steps, and I don’t think Constance is done just yet! CONSTANCE LIFTS BETHANY UP OVER THE STEPS, BEFORE DROPPING HER DOWN ONTO THEM WITH A MODIFIED VERSION OF THE LAST RITES!!!
James Peters: I don’t even know what to say. Constance Blevins just destroyed Dr. Bethany Blue even though they won their match tonight! If this is what they’re doing now, what’s their Specialists Championship match going to be like?
(Multiple officials come swarming in to check on Dr. Bethany Blue, and to make sure Constance can’t do anymore damage. Blood is pouring out of the Doctor’s forehead extremely quickly, and a pool of blood soon begins to surround Constance’s future challenger. Constance Blevins simply raises her Specialists Championship, before finally leaving. As the officials continue checking on the now extremely bloody Dr. Bethany Blue, Voltage begins to fade to black for the final time tonight.)
