(EAW intro plays)

(The broadcast opens up to show a recap of Territorial Invasion from the Sunday Night Voltage side of things: On Night One, Team TLA are able to defeat the Ice Aces with TLA being able to regain his job back, just after ARIA revealed to everyone that Eden Sinclair and Drake King worked together to cost TLA his job. Sierra Everett triumphs over Diamond Dixon and she earns the Crown Jewel moniker to herself. Then, in the Brand Warfare match, after many twists and turns, Team Voltage is able to take the win with Dr. Bethany Blue pinning last Bronson Daniels and being the sole survivor for Team Voltage. On Night Two, the New Breed Showcase takes place, with Kenn Kenn representing Voltage and going up against Hunnid Honcho and Milli Banks, but sadly, Kenn isn’t able to succeed and Milli takes the win for Dynasty. After various weeks of dealing with the Triangle of Terror, Theron Nikolas faces off against Harley Lewis, and Theron, after a hard fought match, is able to take the win. Backstage, Drake King is preparing himself for Anarchy in the Arena before Hikari Kanno and Minerva storm inside his locker room, enraged and annoyed because of what was revealed on Night One with him working with Eden. Drake tries to explain himself, but the two of them don’t want anything to do with it, they don’t trust Drake after that so they decide to shove him in the janitor’s closet and leave him there. The night ends with the Anarchy in the Arena match where total chaos breaks out and all the Elitists give it their all to win, and after Drake is able to break out from the closet and the ring is even set on fire, Drake is able to hit the Book of Dristianity and pin Xander Payne to win it for Team Voltage. The recap ends with Drake celebrating the victory, but Hikari and Minerva exchange looks behind his back, as they turn their backs either way after everything that happened.)

(The recap ends and Sunday Night Voltage fades away to show a shot of the Salle Mohamed V Sporting Arena in Casablanca, Morocco. An edited version of ’33rd Blakk Glass’ by ZilaKami & SosMula is played through the speakers as spotlights are panning around and golden pyro is shooting out from the stage. The crowd cheers wildly as the camera then goes over to show the broadcasting team of Rich Russillo, James Peters, and Persephone.)

Rich Russillo: Ladies and gentlemen…WELCOME TO SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE! We are coming off of a very successful Territorial Invasion for the Voltage brand and we are now en route for Voltage’s first exclusive marquee event of the season, Wicked Games!

James Peters: Indeed Rich, but we have a long way to go there, because tonight, it is another exciting night of Voltage! Where we will see various matches like Haruka Kashimashi settling her differences with Halsey Neel, and one of the Ice Aces, Usagi Senshi, going up against Daryl Kinkade!

Rich Russillo: We will also have Kylie Grace going up against Theron Nikolas and Ronan Malosi facing off against Kenn Kenn. And of course, in a main event, we will see the Hardcore Champion Charlie Marr face off against the man who regained his job back a week ago, TLA!

Persephone: WOOOOO! WE DID IT VOLTAGE! We succeeded in Territorial Invasion and tonight we can celebrate another exciting night of action! I hope we don’t have a highly egotistical and very annoying man starting the show off and interrupting this happy moment! 😊

(Voltage fades to the stage, and after a few seconds ‘Mo Money’ by Ben McLusky hits. This causes extremely loud boos to come from the crowd as the fans couldn’t be any less happy to see the man this music belongs to, and before long Ronan Malosi begins to walk out along with his personal announcer, Amaya. Amaya has a microphone in her hand, and despite his very short run in the Brand Warfare match, Ronan has a big grin on his face as well as a very confident look. As the two make their way down the ramp, Amaya begins to speak.)

Amaya: Ladies and gentlemen… Please welcome your locker room leader, the man who carried Voltage to victory at Territorial Invasion…

James Peters: :skip:

Rich Russillo: Oh brother…

Amaya: HE IS THE MILLION DOLLAR MEGASTAR, HE IS THE ESSENCE OF EXCELLENCE AND HE HAS MORE MONEY THAN YOU… ROOOONNNAAANNNNN MAAALLLOOOSSSIIIIIIIII!!!

James Peters: Well here comes Ronan Malosi, and honestly I don’t even think I want to know what he’s here to talk about. Most people would be upset to be the first one eliminated in a match like Brand Warfare.. But it looks like that’s not the case for Ronan.

Rich Russillo: Yeah, somehow Ronan seems to think that HE’S the reason team Voltage won the Brand Warfare match, as little sense as that makes.

Persephone: I don’t know what you guys are talking about, Ronan did great! Such a memorable performance. :wow:

(The crowd boos even louder than before after hearing the announcement, and when the two get to the ring, Amaya hands Ronan her microphone before taking her leave. Ronan seems to be in a really good mood, and he begins to speak despite the loud boos.)

Ronan Malosi: You’re welcome everyone! What’s that, the third year in a row that Voltage won the Brand Warfare match? All because you guys had ME on the team! Like the locker room leader that I am, I made sure that Voltage’s Brand Warfare team was in perfect shape and left the Brand Warfare match as the winners once again, so if you ask me there should be a huge “Thank you Ronan” chant going on right now, because without me Voltage wouldn’t have even come close to winning!

(Ronan stops for a second and holds out his microphone towards the crowd, waiting for them to chant… But they never do. The boos just grow louder, so Ronan quickly pulls the microphone back.)

Ronan Malosi: Okay, I get it. Not in a talkative mood, that’s fine! Either way I’m sure all of you know that my efforts pushed the Voltage team further than ever! I think we all know that I don’t give myself enough credit for how great I really am, so if none of you are gonna join in I think it’s only right that I pat myself on the back for such a successful performance at Territorial Invasion! At first I wasn’t a fan of my placement on the team since I never chose to be there, but in the end that was just me not wanting to embarrass Dynasty and Showdown too badly! I knew that things would be too easy if I ended up on team Voltage, and I ended up proving myself right at Territorial Invasion! Honestly, one could say that Voltage was a one man team. After all, I was by far the greatest Elitist on the team, and the others aren’t actually all that great if you ask me. The only reason they performed as well as they did in the Brand Warfare match is because they had my support backing them! Just think about it, I was obviously the biggest star on that team, as well as the most influential, and the most talented! All four of my teammates knew that they had to make me proud and they managed to do exactly that, after capitalizing off of MY work and taking out all of the opponents after I weakened them!

(The fans just continue booing, and Ronan completely ignores them as if the fans aren’t even there.)

James Peters: I can’t believe he’s serious..

Rich Russillo: Are we sure about that? Maybe this is just some really well thought out joke. :lupe:

Ronan Malosi: Now that Brand Warfare is over, I think it’s about time that I get what was promised to the winners of the Brand Warfare match, a favor of my choosing! Honestly, after all I did to help team Voltage I should really be given all five favors, but I’ll be kind enough to let the rest of team Voltage have theirs. After all, if they weren’t there the Brand Warfare match might have actually been a slightly bigger challenge!

James Peters: Can someone please stop this already?

Ronan Malosi: Now the question is, what should I do with my favor? The possibilities are endless really, even if someone like me wouldn’t need a favor to get what I want. I’m a star, if I want something I’m given it anyway, but it doesn’t hurt being able to use a favor like this for literally anything, no questions asked. Maybe a paid vacation would be nice. I do deserve the time off after the hard work I put in at Territorial Invasion, and getting some pocket change while I’m at it wouldn’t hurt. It wouldn’t have to be long, either. Just a nice month or two away from the ring to cool off. Then again, another shot at the EAW World Championship would be nice, too. I haven’t forgotten about how lucky Minerva got at Midsummer Massacre. I had that match won and she knows it! Although she’s not the only Champion that got lucky against me, and being Hardcore Champion can’t be too hard nowadays. Hmm… I might need some more time than I thought to think about it, but I hope Captain Charisma and Eden Sinclair are listening closely, because once it’s time for me to cash in on my favor I expect to be-

(Ronan’s voice is cut off by ‘Praise The Lord’ by Bandokay, and out walks Charlie Marr.. But he’s not alone. Some members of the audience surprisingly begin to cheer just because of the fact that Ronan Malosi has been shut up, and all four remaining members of team Voltage: Charlie, Dr. Bethany Blue, Sheridan Müller and Daryl Kinkade all walk out with microphones in their hands. Ronan looks a bit offended that he was interrupted, and quickly starts to speak.)

Ronan Malosi: Excuse me? I was in the middle of something! I’m glad that you guys are here to thank me for being such a great member of the team, but-

Charlie Marr: What are you doing?

Ronan Malosi: What?

Charlie Marr: What the hell are you talking about, you didn’t do anything. You were the first one eliminated in the match, we literally would have been better off without a fifth partner than with you.

Ronan Malosi: I don’t know what you’re talking about. I get that I was eliminated prematurely, but I still c-

Dr. Bethany Blue: No, no you did not. Literally every single member of the team managed to get an elimination except you. Everyone here actually contributed to team Voltage, except you. All you did was leech off of our success, and yet you had the nerve to walk out there after the match as if you actually did anything besides look like a complete fool? Against Lexi and Ryan Wilson might I add, two Elitists you have enough experience with and should’ve been able to handle. Kirk Redwood didn’t do anything, yet he outlasted you. Lexi didn’t last too long herself, yet she still managed to help take you out because you’re that pathetic.

Ronan Malosi: Look, who cares when I was eliminated? You guys still won, right? Be honest, would you really have won without a natural born star like myself on the team?

Dr. Bethany Blue: Yes.

Daryl Kinkade: Yeah.

Sheridan Müller: No doubt.

Charlie Marr: Stop asking stupid questions.

Ronan Malosi: :francis:

Daryl Kinkade: Look man, we managed to work as a team better than I expected, and while I was on the “eliminated” side of things much like you in the end.. I did what I could for team Voltage. We did win in the end, but we could have had an even more decisive victory if we weren’t being held down by a teammate that said himself he didn’t even want to be there. When I was trying to help us all get on the same page I knew you didn’t want to be on the team, but I didn’t think that’d mean you’d be deadweight when the time came. What happened to wanting payback against the people that “wronged you” in the past? That was the best chance you’d ever have to right those wrongs all in one night, and you blew it. Lexi, Ryan Wilson, didn’t you face Bronson Daniels more than once?

Ronan Malosi: I don’t want to talk about it.

Sheridan Müller: If the rest of team Voltage didn’t do as well as we did there’s no guarantee that we would’ve been able to come close to victory after what you did. I don’t think you understand how much of a problem it was having to rely on someone that in the end failed to do their part. The other teams knew heading into the match that you were a weak link, and that they’d be able to get rid of you easily. There wasn’t much we could have done about that if you weren’t willing to pull your own weight and prove them wrong on your own, and in the end we were stuck fending for ourselves and cleaning up the mess you made with your lackluster performance in the Brand Warfare match. Don’t you feel even slightly guilty walking out here and taking credit for such a victory knowing that you did absolutely nothing to help and instead held us back, humiliating us at the very start of the match?

Dr. Bethany Blue: It’s Ronan, so I’d assume the answer’s no. There’s nobody as shameless as a man that’d celebrate being eliminated before anybody else. Honestly, I’d be embarrassed for Ronan if I didn’t know him as well as I do. This isn’t even out of the ordinary for someone like him.

(This conversation has started to annoy Ronan, as the smile on his face has completely faded.)

Charlie Marr: Ronan, let’s make one thing clear. You don’t “deserve” anything but to be publicly shamed for that joke of a performance. You made Voltage look bad and if I wasn’t good enough of a team Captain to make sure that the rest of us were on the same page and ready to work without you, Voltage might’ve been in trouble. You’re useless, and you shouldn’t be given a favor at all. After trying to hand the other teams a win you really should be shipped off to Dynasty or Showdown, not that they’d actually want you on this brand. Only reason you were drafted to Voltage in the first place is because Minerva accepted that stupid challenge. You shouldn’t be here, and you proved that last week.

(Ronan doesn’t say anything for a few seconds, seeing how upset the rest of team Voltage is with him. It takes a little while before he finally does respond.)

Ronan Malosi: Is that what you think?

Charlie Marr: Yes, obviously. Not just me, either. Ask anybody that watched Territorial Invasion. You didn’t help Voltage and you definitely didn’t carry the team. You humiliated yourself, just like you do every week.

Dr. Bethany Blue: There had to have been a better Elitist for Eden to choose for our final member. One that isn’t a complete joke.

Sheridan Müller: Or at the very least, one that doesn’t have a problem wrestling.

Daryl Kinkade: We needed a partner, Ronan. If you want to pat yourself on the back for things you didn’t do, do it when you’re not in front of thousands of people who watched you nearly sabotage the match for us-

Ronan Malosi: Alright, SHUT UP! I’ve heard enough, and at this point it’s clear that none of you are respecting my contributions to team Voltage, and I’ve had it! Without my guidance you guys would have been doomed, because none of you can compare to the kind of talent that I am! You’re all lucky that I even gave you the time of day! I’m rich, do you really think I need any of this?

(The crowd boos loudly, and the four remaining members of team Voltage just look at one another, almost with a look of agreement, before beginning to surround the ring, each of them taking a side.)

Ronan Malosi: Um… Guys?

(The crowd suddenly explodes into cheers as all four of them slide into the ring at once.)

James Peters: WOAH!!! ALL FOUR MEMBERS OF TEAM VOLTAGE SLIDE INTO THE RING AS RONAN DOESN’T HAVE ANYWHERE TO GO, AND CHARLIE MARR TAKES RONAN DOWN WITH A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN AS THE OTHER THREE BEGIN STOMPING AWAY AT HIM! CLEARLY THEY’VE HEARD ENOUGH FROM THE MAN THAT WAS ELIMINATED FIRST IN THE BRAND WARFARE MATCH!! THEY’RE JUMPING RONAN MALOSI, ALL FOUR ELITISTS ARE STOMPING AND PUNCHING AWAY AT THE MAN THEY JUST TEAMED UP WITH ONE WEEK AGO!!!

Rich Russillo: RONAN TRIES TO CRAWL AWAY, BUT SHERIDAN MÜLLER GRABS RONAN AND PULLS HIM UP IN A SLEEPER HOLD, BEFORE SHOVING RONAN MALOSI INTO THE CORNER AS SHE AND DARYL STOMP AT RONAN, AND CHARLIE MARR HITS PUNCHES TO THE JAW!!!

James Peters: CHARLIE AND DARYL GRAB RONAN NOW AND SEND HIM RIGHT INTO DR. BETHANY BLUE, WHO CONNECTS WITH THE TJD, CAUSING RONAN TO STUMBLE BACKWARDS, RIGHT INTO THE ENDLESS FANTASIES FROM SHERIDAN MÜLLER!!!! HUGE TAG TEAM COMBINATION FROM THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, AND THAT KIND OF TEAMWORK IS WHAT REALLY HELPED VOLTAGE IN BRAND WARFARE, NOT RONAN MALOSI!!!

Rich Russillo: Ronan Malosi is down and out, but these four aren’t done yet! Charlie drags Ronan back up to his feet as Daryl backpedals! These two clearly have something in mind, AND CHARLIE CONNECTS WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT, CAUSING RONAN TO STUMBLE BACKWARDS AND TURN AROUND-

James Peters: RIGHT INTO THE MONKĒ FLIP!!!! THE FOUR MEMBERS OF TEAM VOLTAGE JUST LAID OUT RONAN MALOSI, AND IT LOOKS LIKE RONAN MADE A HUGE MISTAKE BRAGGING ABOUT THAT VICTORY!!!!!

(‘Primrose’ by Dream State hits as the fans have a mixed reaction, and one by one the four Elitists make their way out of the ring, with Daryl Kinkade being the last to leave. By the time they’re at the top of the ramp, heading to the back, Ronan is able to wake up just enough to say a few words.)

Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) They’re gonna pay for that… Nobody treats their locker room leader like that.

(Ronan slowly rolls out of the ring after saying this, dropping to the ground and having to use the barricade to try and pull himself up. From there he stares at the stage with a frustrated look on his face as he thinks about the attack that just occurred, and Voltage fades away from ringside.)

(Commercial for ROBLOX starring Jake Smith, featuring games such as Ro-Wrestling 2k23)

(Voltage fades to ringside, where Bella Braxton is seen holding a microphone.)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

(‘Seek and Destroy’ by Metallica plays as the crowd boos Halsey Neel as she makes her way to the ring. She doesn’t pay any attention to it at all, just focusing on the task at hand. Halsey looks ready for this match, not wasting any time on her way down the ramp, obviously wanting to get the match started as soon as possible.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND…WEIGHING IN AT 140 POUNDS…SHE IS “THE RIPPER”….HAALLLSEEEYYY NEEEELLLL!!!

Rich Russillo: A lot of people don’t like her, but you gotta admit she’s extremely talented and has shown she has one hell of a future here. And tonight, looks to gain some much needed momentum for herself and build her stock.

(“W-B-X ~W-Boiled Extreme~” by Aya Kamiki [Feat. TAKUYA] plays as the crowd roars in approval of Haruka Kashimashi. She pumps up the crowd and soaks in the reaction before taking a deep breath, with her eyes locked on Haksey Neel inside the ring.)

Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT….FROM SAPPORO, HOKKAIDO….WEIGHING IN AT 128 POUNDS…SHE IS “THE PRODIGIOUS VALKYRIE”….HAARRRUUUKKKKAAA KAASSSHHHHIMASSSHHIIII!!!!

James Peters: And speaking of bright futures. it’s quite the opposite of Halsey with the crowd, the crowd just can’t get enough of her, and neither can we. Haruka has shown so many flashes but tonight chases the same goal, get some momentum for her to build off the rest of the season, one match at a time.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: And here we go, this should be w good one as Halsey and Haruka step out of their respective corners and they holds up their arms and lock hands in a test of strength – BUT HALSEY GOES FOR A FOREARM SHOT…BUT HARUKA BLOCKS IT! Haruka blocks it and now it looks like we’re back at square one with these two.

Rich Russillo: After several seconds, they both lock up in a collar and elbow tie-up! And then Halsey gets her in a side headlock, and Haruka tries to run and push her to the ropes…But Halsey drops to a knee with the headlock still applied, and then flips her on her back! Halsey has three maximum amount of pressure applied, but Haruka uses her legs to escape in a headscissors, and then both race to their feet…and then Haruka ducks a clothesline before running off of the ropes…AND THEN RUNS INTO A BIG BOOT FROM HALSEY!!

Persephone: Halsey gets Haruka up and places her in the corner – And delivers several knife edge chops to the chest! And then she picks her up and sits her on the top rope and she goes up with her, and both of then begin exchanging blows with the other back and forth…A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE HEAD FROM HARUKA AS HALSEY JUST BARELY HOLDS ON! Haruka balances her and sets her up – A HURRICANRANA FROM THE TOP ROPE!! HALSEY MIGHT BE IN SOME SERIOUS TROUBLE IN THE EARLY GOINGS OF THIS MATCH!!

Rich Russillo: Halsey uses her ring awareness and escapes under the bottom rope – AND HERE COMES HARUKA WHO TAKES HER OUT WITH A SUICIDE DIVE THROUGH THE SECOND ROPE!! Haruka is absolutely pumped up with all the momentum going in her favor! Haruka picks her up and then tosses Halsey back inside as Haruka climbs up the apron and runs up to the top rope beside her – AND HARUKA GOES FOR AN ELBOW DROP OFF THE TOP…AND IT CONNECTS DRIVING HER ELBOW INTO THE HEART OF HALSEY!

James Peters: Haruka looks to keep the momentum going for herself practically stalking Halsey waiting for her to stand up…AND THEN A TIGER SUPLEX FROM HARUKA AS HALSEY LANDS HARD ON THE BACK OF HER HEAD!! AND SHE GOES FOR THE FIRST COVER OF THIS MATCH!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!

Persephone: AND THE KICKOUT FROM HALSEY! And Haruka doesn’t waste any time in going back on the attack picking her up off the mat… and she looks to be setting up for the german suplex, but Halsey throws a back elbow to the face, she reverses it to face Haruka’s back.. And delivers a German suplex of her own buying herself some valuable time to recuperate.

Rich Russillo: Halsey steps up to Haruka – AND THEN HITS A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT THAT DRIVES HARUKA OFF OF THE ROPES AND THN BACK INTO HER ARMS….A SIDE SLAM PLANTS HARUKA ON HER BACK! Halsey now looks to be the one in control now as she goes for a right hand, but it’s blocked by Haruka who delivers several body kicks before running off the ropes….AND GOES FOR A FRONT DROPKICK! BUT NO!! HALSEY GRABS HER LEGS IN MID AIR AND DROPS HER ON HER BACK – THE FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK IN APPLIED NOW ON HARUKA AS SHE SCREAMS IN PAIN! WHAT IS SHE GOING TO DO?!

James Peters: Haruka is trying with everything she’s got to escape out of this, but isn’t having much luck! She reaches for the ropes but is still a bit away, and she begins to drag herself there and she reaches out once more on my a few inches away – AND SHE REACHES OUT AND GRABS IT FORCING A BREAK! Halsey is forced to let go as she does a few moments later. Halsey though isn’t wasting any time and grabs her feet dragging her back to the center of the ring…but Haruka uses her free foot and delivers several kicks to the face causing Halsey to back up a few feet.

Rich Russillo: That gives Haruka just enough time to get back to her feet and she charges full speed at her – AND HALSEY CATCHES HER WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER! And Halsey now hooks the leg!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

James Peters: Haruka gets her shoulder up and stays alive! Halsey picks her up from the front by her head, but Haruka is trying to fight back with several shots to the rib cage…BUT HALSEY PUTS AN END TO THAT WITH A KNEE TO THE RIBS! And then Halsey presses her above the head – BUT HARUKA SOMEHOW REVERSES IT INTO AN ARM DRAG! That caught Halsey off guard as she pulls herself up in the corner, AND HERE COMES HARUKA!! HARUKA RUNS AND DRIVES BOTH KNEES INTO THE CHEST BEFORE FOLLOWING IT UP WITH A MONKEY FLIP AS HALSEY LANDS BACK FIRST ON THE MAT! And now Haruka quickly climbs up looking to go high risk for the second time…

Rich Russillo: AND SHE FLIES HIGH GOING FOR THE FROG SPLASH!! BUT NOBODY HOME THIS TIME AS HALSEY MOVES AT THE LAST SECOND! Halsey at the moment saves herself as she stands back up and sees Haruka stirring to a knee….AND THEN HALSEY DRIVES HER KNEE INTO THE SIDE OF HER HEAD AS HARD AS SHE CAN! Halsey pushes her hair back before picking her up and then lifting her up in a fireman’s carry looking for perhaps “Blood On The Leaves” –

Persephone: But again Haruka is trying her best to fight out of it, driving her elbow repeatedly into the side of her face, and then she slips off her shoulders from behind and then – A BACKSTABBER FROM HARUKA AS BOTH OF THEM ARE DOWN HERE AGAIN! Haruka stands up and feels momentum is back on her side now. Haruka is begging her to stand up towering above her before backing up a few feet, and Haruka runs at her from behind….BUT HALSEY APPARENTLY HAS EYES AT THE BACK OF HER HEAD AS SHE TURNS AROUND AND NEARLY TURNS HARUKA INSIDE OUT WITH A SPINNING LARIAT! Momentum swings just going back and forth with these two right now.

Rich Russillo: Both of them stir to their feet at the same time, and now both of them are going back and forth with the other exchanging blows – BEFORE HALSEY RETAKES CONTROL WITH A VICIOUS HEADBUTT! The headbutt causes Haruka to stumble into the corner…AND HALSEY RUNS AND DELIVERS A SPLASH IN THE CORNER, AND THEN FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A HIP TOSS! Halsey is in control right now as she stands above Haruka looking ready to strike….

James Peters: SHE GRABS AHOLD OF THE ARM AND DROPS DOWN IN THE TRIANGLE ARMBAR!! Haruka begins to scream in pain not knowing a way to escape as Halsey applies the maximum amount of pressure on the arm! Haruka looks and sees she’s way too far for a rope break, so what is she going to do? Is she going to tap? She might have no other option….OR DOES SHE? LOOK AT THE STRENGTH OF HARUKA AS SHE LIFTS THE WHOLE WEIGHT OF HALSEY UP…AND THEN SLAMS HER BACK DOWN RIGHT ON THE BACK OF HER HEAD AND IT CAUSES HER TO LET GO! GREAT RESILIENCE RIGHT THERE FROM HARUKA!

Rich Russillo: Haruka rolls away from Halsey holding her arm in some pain trying to shake it to see if it’s okay, and seconds later, she has her eyes locked on Halsey! Haruka charges at her in the corner and delivers a high knee strike – BEFORE FOLLOWING IT UP WITH A BULLDOG IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! And she doesn’t stop there as she steps out onto the apron ….I think we all know where this is going! Halsey turns around – AND HARUKA SLINGSHOTS….”CYCLONE DECAPITATION!!!” HARUKA LAYS HER OUT AS SHE CRAWLS OVER AND MAKES THE COVER!!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT HALSEY GETS HER SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST MILLISECOND!! WOW!! Haruka doesn’t let it phase her as she quickly gets her up and sets her up for a suplex…BUT HALSEY BLOCKS IT! AND HALSEY LIFTS HER UP IN THE AIR – AND THEN TOSSES HER STOMACH FIRST ON THE TOP ROPE! Haruka is just hanging on the top rope and is pretty much a sitting duck…AND LOOK OUT!! HALSEY RUNS OFF THE ROPES AND DELIVERS A BOOT TO THE SIDE OF THE FACE! BUT INSTEAD OF FALLING INTO THE RING, HARUKA FALLS OUT OF THE RING AND DROPS TO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR!!

James Peters: Halsey looks a bit annoyed at that because it seemed like she had a prime opportunity there to put Haruka away. Halsey right away exits the ring and grabs Haruka and tosses her back inside the ring before sliding in right behind her. And now she is stalking Haruka from the corner, she is just itching for her to stand up, and she does – “OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!!!” BUT HARUKA SIDESTEPPED IT SENDING HALSEY TO THE ROPES – AND HALSEY REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND NEARLY SLICES HARUKA IN HALF WITH A DEVASTATING SPEAR!! AND HERE’S THE COVER FROM HALSEY!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!

Persephone: HARUKA STAYS ALIVE! Halsey looks down at Haruka who holds her ribs in some pain after that spear, AND HALSEY BEGINS TO STOMP THE LIFE OUT OF HARUKA TARGETING HER LIMBS AND THE RIB CAGE!!

Rich Russillo: Haruka is trying her best to protect herself but there’s not really anything she can do. Halsey is relentless in her attack right now as she now mounts over top of her..and forearm strike after forearm strike! Halsey finally picks her up off of the mat… BUT BEFORE SHE CAN DO ANYTHING HARUKA FIGHTS BACK AND DELIVERS SEVERAL BODY SHOTS AND KICKS TO THE LOWER BODY! IS HARUKA GOING TO GET CONTROL BACK AS SHE RUNS OFF THE ROPES – NO SHE WON’T AS HALSEY FLATTENS HER WITH A SPINNING LARIAT!!

James Peters: Halsey looks to have regained control as she loosens her arm a bit before picking Haruka up by the head, AND LIFTS HER ABOVE HER HEAD ONCE MORE….AND THIS TIME SLAMS HARUKA FLAT ON HER BACK!! Halsey again picks up Haruka, and now what does she have planned here? Halsey puts her in place, I THINK SHE MIGHT BE GOING FOR “THE FALL” HERE….BUT NOT SO FAST AS HARUKA COUNTERS WITH A BACK BODY DROP SAVING HERSELF AT LEAST FOR THE MOMENT! Both women are down again and it’s a race to see who gets to their feet first.

James Peters: They both turn around to face each other after standing up at the same time – AND HALSEY SWINGS AT HER HEAD BUT HAKURA DUCKS IT AND THEN DELIVERS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD, AND HALSEY DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE, AND HARUKA RUNS FULL SPEED OFF THE ROPES, AND DELIVERS THE SHINING WIZARD TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!! Halsey might be in a vulnerable spot here as – SHE HOOKS BOTH OF THE ARMS, AND SHE HAS “TIEBREAKER” LOCKED IN!!!! THE CATTLE MUTILATION SUBMISSION HOLD IS LOCKED IN ON HALSEY AND SHE HAS NOWHERE TO GO, IS SHE GOING TO TAP OUT HERE?!

Persephone: HALSEY IS TRYING TO BREAK OUT, BUT IS NOT HAVING ANY LUCK, HARUKA HAS IT LOCKED IN TIGHT! Halsey is shaking her head no that she wants to quit…AND OUT OF ADRENALINE STARTS TO DRAG HER LOWER BODY…AND SHE SOMEHOW JUST BARELY BY INCHES GETS HER FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE FORCING THE BREAK!! Haruka is shocked that that sequence of moves wasn’t enough to put this natch away and secure the victory. Haruka lets go and thinks of what to do next to keep Halsey down.

James Peters: Haruka shifts her eyes from Halsey to that top rope… and we know what she has in mind most likely. Halsey is in perfect position as Haruka rolls underneath the bottom rope and ascends up the top rope. She stands and balances herself – OH MY GOD!!! HALSEY LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL SHOOTS UP AND RUNS UP THE TOP ROPE MEETING HARUKA THERE…AND THEN DELIVERS A BELLY TO BELLY FROM THE TOP ROPE!!!! Haruka looked like she had seen a ghost with how fast Halsey was up to that top rope with her. Man what a match this has been between two of the best stars with the brightest futures here on Voltage. Each woman throwing haymakers at each other and taking the best they have to offer. This match can really go either way.

Rich Russillo: And now we’re back at square one, with both women down and both exhausted from the battle so far. This match is simply who wants it more kind of match and that’s what Voltage is all about. Both begin to stir on opposite ends of the ring and both are trying to make it back to their feet, and Halsey looks like she is a tad bit quicker in getting to her feet – AND SHE CHARGES AT HARUKA BUT HARUKA SIDESTEPS SENDING HALSEY SHOULDER FIRST HITTING THE RING POST THROUGH THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE, HARUKA SHAKES THE COBWEBS OUT BEFORE SEEING HALSEY STUCK IN THE CORNER, AND THEN HARUKA PULLS HER OUT FROM THE CORNER AND ROLLS HER UP FROM BEHIND!!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEE!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!

James Peters: DID SHE GET HER?! NO, ONLY TWO AND THREE QUARTERS AS BOTH RISE UP AND THEN HALSEY SWINGS AND MISSES, AND HARUKA SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE SECOND ROPE – AND HITS A SPRINGBOARD ENZIGURI KICK!!! HALSEY IS STUNNED AND COULD BE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE NOW!!

Rich Russillo: AND NOW…..HARUKA LOOKS TO KEEP THIS FLURRY OF MOMENTUM GOING AS SHE RUNS OFF THE ROPES….AND SHE HITS A RUNNING KNEE!!! HALSEY IS DOWN AND OUT AS HARUKA NOW CLIMBS UP TOP ONCE MORE! THIS CROWD IS ELECTRIC AND BEHIND HER AS SHE STANDS TALL ON THE TOP ROPE – PRODIGIOUS LANDING!!!!!!” THE PHOENIX SPLASH CONNECTS!!

James Peters: NO!!!! HALSEY GOT HER KNEES UP JUST AT THE LAST SECOND!! Halsey rolls away from Haruka and uses the ropes to pull herself up and she sees that this might be her best opportunity to strike. Haruka is on both knees….AND HALSEY RUNS AND DRIVES HER KNEE INTO THE SIDE OF HER HEAD AT FULL SPEED BEFORE BRINGING HER TO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND SETS HER UP – “THE FALL!!!” THE ADJUSTMENT PILEDRIVER AS HALSEY SLOWLY HOOKS THE LEG! IS THIS GOING TO BE ENOUGH TO WIN IT?!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(‘Seek and Destroy’ by Metallica plays as Halsey rolls off of Haruka and stands to get her hand raised. The crowd doesn’t like the result, but she obviously doesn’t care.)

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…..HAALLLSEEEYYY NEEEELLLL!!!!

James Peters: Wow, a great match between two bright stars on our roster. Halsey gets a much needed win against a very game Haruka and picks up some momentum for herself. Well earned victory here tonight for The Ripper.

Rich Russillo: Haruka definitely had a great performance, but in the end Halsey picks up the victory, showing once more how dangerous of a competitor she can be!

(The final shot is of Halsey celebrating her win on the stage while Haruka looks disappointed in the outside sitting up against the barricade.)

(‘Cold War’ by Hans Zimmer hits, and the crowd boos extremely loudly as Drake King begins to walk out. In a rare sight, Drake has a huge smile on his face as he makes his way to the stage, obviously thanks to the outcome of Territorial Invasion’s Anarchy in the Arena match, where Voltage was able to pick up the victory. Drake doesn’t seem to notice the boos at all as he makes his way to the ring, despite them being even louder than they’d usually be after the reveal of him working with Eden Sinclair.)

James Peters: Here comes the former team Captain for Voltage’s Anarchy in the Arena team! In the end Voltage somehow managed to pick up the victory and it looks like that might just be the reason for the big smile on Drake’s face, but I don’t know if now is the right time for a celebration after what we learned about Drake that same night.

Rich Russillo: Yeah. It turns out that what happened at Rise of the Resistance was actually a plan formed by him and Eden Sinclair, purposely trying to get TLA fired!

Persephone: How awful! I’m so glad that TLA got his job back in the end. I’d just hate to see the Voltage roster lose such talented wrestlers!

(Drake makes his way into the ring, not waiting for too long to speak as the crowd continues to boo.)

Drake King: :blessed: WE DID IT! Voltage succeeded at Territorial Invasion, and I’m so glad that I was able to keep my promise and lead this brand to victory. I knew that it would be quite the challenge bringing this brand to victory with the kind of competition we were faced with, but in the end I knew that there was nobody else qualified enough to take the role of team Captain, leaving me with no other choice. Voltage needed someone that’d be capable of making sure this brand walked out of Territorial Invasion on top after spending the past few years unable to close the show with a victory, instead allowing Dynasty to win two years in a row. I knew that this year couldn’t be a third, and I wasn’t willing to let Showdown take the victory for themselves knowing who was on the team. I’ve said for a long time that this brand deserved better and for the past few years I’ve been working tirelessly to give Voltage the treatment that this place deserves, and now I’ve finally done it. After losing the match this event has been built around for the past few years the Voltage roster is finally able to walk away from Territorial Invasion with our heads held high, and I’m just glad that I could make this brand proud. :wow:

(The crowd immediately starts to grow even louder with the booing seeing Drake not even mention either of his partners in the match, Hikari Kanno and Minerva.)

Drake King: I know, I’m forgetting something, and it’s the fact that Dynasty and Showdown might have gotten what they wanted if I hadn’t found a way to escape the closet that I was locked in. I actually missed a good portion of the match thanks to the fact that I had trouble getting out of it, and had I been stuck there for any longer than I was, who knows what would have happened? Fortunately, I was able to find my way into the match and make sure Voltage got the victory. It’s very unfortunate that my own partners were unable to trust me and in the end tried to remove me from the match completely, but in the end everything worked out! I was able to pin Xander Payne and give Voltage a huge victory, just as promised. Stepping up to handle Territorial Invasion was the best decision I could have made, and with my leadership Voltage was able to gain a bigger victory than ever before. Voltage has been moving in the right direction this season and following Territorial Invasion we’re on the right track to reaching greater heights than ever before! This could be the best season Voltage has ever seen, and our victory at Territorial Invasion will-

(‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ by Tupac hits, and the crowd explodes into cheers. The smile quickly fades from the face of Drake King, and before long TLA begins to walk out with a microphone in his hand, staring right at the man that helped get him fired weeks ago. TLA doesn’t waste much time making his way to the ring, but he gives a smile to all the cheering fans in the crowd, just annoying Drake even more knowing that in the end TLA managed to get his job back.)

James Peters: Here comes TLA, and honestly I couldn’t be more glad to see him. He’s not the only one tired of hearing Drake take credit for Voltage’s win, but beyond that if it wasn’t for ARIA this man might not even be here right now, as she is the one that exposed the actions of Eden and Drake!

Rich Russillo: We said that Drake may need to watch his back after what was revealed, and this is exactly why! It looks like TLA isn’t going to sit back and let Drake get away with what he did, since he had just as big of a part in all of this as Eden Sinclair!

(TLA gets in the ring and walks up to Drake, who couldn’t be any less happy to see him. This time it’s TLA that drops the grin from his face knowing the history that he has with Drake, and finally TLA begins to speak as the two Elitists are face to face.)

TLA: Ok iight y’all know you be forgetting something up in here. You be forgetting that you a b- Wait no we can’t be saying them palabras up in here. You forgot what you done did homie? Luckily I be here back up in the game to remind you. Gotta spit and let you know. At Territorial Invasion you know that the chica ARIA she done came in with the receipts. There ain’t no hiding it now. Y’all got exposed for the coward you really are. You some low type homie you ain’t got no cred. I know that you was shook when she be sliding through revealing all of them dirty dealings for the world to see. But you ain’t gotta worry yo head too much dawg cuz the whole world already knew what you was. You just gave them a reminder just like imma have to give you. Gonna have to show you what happens when you step to a vato tryna take away he livelihood tryna take away he trabajo. You done broke the rules and you messed with some things that you shouldn’t mess with if you care at all about your well being. You even set up your own tag team partner just for the sake of getting rid of me only to fail completely. Guess y’all really ain’t had it in you.

TLA: You failed and I am still here still standing in this ring despite your’s and everyone else through the years’ attempts at getting rid of me. Y’all really want me gone that badly? You gotta get it through your thick skull that I am not going anywhere. I don’t get it. You have wanted me gone from this place for years. You even targeted me back when you returned at Bloodsport back in 2020. This isn’t just ordinary hating. This is advanced hating. I thought that maybe the distance between us last season when we were on different brands would change things. Pero I be sliding right back into Voltage and it’s like I never left. Clearly nothing has changed. Maybe you can explain it to me. Cuz from what I’ve seen from you, you’ve gone way off the deep end and done all kinds of loco type things in this ring, backstage, everywhere. But you got a problem with me when all I be doing is wrestling and chilling enjoying that vida enjoying that fiesta. You want to make this place better. Well so do I and I have been doing that by going all out in that ring putting on all of them classic matches winning them championships. It’s too late now though for you. Even if you have any explanation you missed out on your chance to move on from the beef we had in the past with what you were exposed for doing by ARIA. Now there’s no turning back from what imma be doing to you. :ufdup:

Drake King: :francis: Like I’ve said before, I was doing what was necessary to make this show as great as it can be. All I want is to make sure this place succeeds, so at Rise of the Resistance I did what I had to do. I won’t deny the fact that for years I’ve made an attempt to get rid of you, but that’s just the least I could do to help this place. You’ve dragged Voltage down every season you’ve spent on this show and now I’m not the only one that sees it. Eden Sinclair can too, which is exactly why she approached me the week that you and Sheridan challenged me. We had to get rid of you one way or another. Creating a Voltage without TLA was one of the biggest steps we needed to take in order to make this show perfect, and honestly I don’t know how you could blame anyone else but yourself for that, when you’ve been given so many chances to turn your career around and follow just a few basic rules. You decided to keep showing up week after week knowing that you don’t plan to fall in line, so we did what we had to do. It unfortunately didn’t last anywhere near long enough, but the time that you were away from Voltage made for a huge improvement.

TLA: Sounds like a lot of excuses to me. You think that you gotta make this place better but you have no concrete examples of how I am making this place worse. All y’all be spitting is that vagueness and basura about breaking some rules. Like you have never broken any rules in your life or in your career. Don’t be giving me none of that. I don’t buy into anything that Eden Sinclair or you have to say and after what we saw on that recording I don’t see how anyone else could either. I ain’t surprised that your teammates tried to keep you out of the match and as far as I’m concerned they just gave you a taste of what you gave me. It don’t feel so good Mr. King to be thrown out and told you ain’t welcome for reasons you don’t understand does it? Let’s be clear about what you did. You and Eden exposed your weakness not just to me but to the entire world. If Eden was as powerful as she claims to be she could have just fired me. She doesn’t want me around right? Why not just fire me? Why go through the trouble of coming up with some convoluted reason? All that does is tell me that I ain’t so bad at following the rules after all. Cuz she couldn’t even come up with a legitimate reason to get rid of me. So I’m back. Stay mad. Cope. Seethe. :umad:

TLA: I was gone for like a few weeks and you got to see what this brand was like. You really think it was that much better? Or did reality set in that not much really changed. Because the people were still here. As long as mi raza still be around then it really is like TLA never left. You are lucky that you managed to escape and sneak back into the main event at Territorial Invasion to get that W or else you would still be seen as a disgrace to the rest of the team which probably would have won without your help anyway. But don’t catch me hatin’. Congrats on bringing that W home to Voltage. You did it and I can respect that. But what I can’t respect is you trying to take away the career of a hard working luchador just minding his own business. This season started off so well I was competing in number one contender’s matches but you couldn’t just leave that alone you were targeting me from the beginning. You wouldn’t even give me a chance to represent Voltage or adapt to any changes under Eden’s management you just jumped the gun and came for my throat for no reason. I ain’t even know why y’all be hatin’. Imma good hombre.

Drake King: No, you’re a problem TLA. You always were, that’s why this has gone on for so long. You keep being given chances and nothing changes, and the one time we finally manage to do the right thing and get rid of you you’re given yet another opportunity to return to the company and mess things up. Voltage just had a huge victory at Territorial Invasion, and even now that we’re in the process of moving forward we’re still being held down because you’re somehow still here! I really don’t think it’s asking too much for you to just go away. You’ve been around for years, you’ve accomplished just about everything you could want to There’s no reason why you can’t just go away and allow this place to move on, and yet here you are. These past few years you’ve done everything in your power just to remain one of the biggest issues with this entire company, and no matter how hard I try, or even how hard Eden Sinclair tries, you just can’t seem to understand that we don’t need you here. EAW does not need you. EAW would’ve been far better off if you weren’t given the chance to return in the first place.

(The two Elitists have a staredown as the crowd boos, until finally a smirk reappears on TLA’s face.)

James Peters: WOAH, TLA JUST SLAMMED THE MIC IN DRAKE KING’S FACE!!! TLA HAD A GRIN ON HIS FACE AS IT LOOKED LIKE HE HAD SOMETHING ON HIS MIND! IT LOOKS LIKE THAT “SOMETHING” WAS PAYBACK AS TLA JUMPS AT DRAKE AND BEGINS ATTACKING THE MAN THAT GOT HIM FIRED AT RISE OF THE RESISTANCE!

Rich Russillo: TLA IS ON TOP OF DRAKE AND IS JUST LAYING IN ELBOWS AND PUNCHES TO HIM! TLA had to have been waiting for this moment ever since ARIA revealed the footage of his and Eden Sinclair’s plan, and now just one week later TLA is getting a bit of revenge!

James Peters: Drake King throws TLA off of him as the two get back to their feet, AND NOW DRAKE THROWS A RIGHT HAND, AND TLA SENDS ONE IN RETURN! THE TWO MEN NOW GOING BACK AND FORTH- UNTIL TLA IS ABLE TO DUCK A RIGHT HAND BEFORE CONNECTING WITH THE CARTEL KICK, CAUSING DRAKE TO STUMBLE BACKWARDS TO THE ROPES! TLA NOW GETTING UP AND RUNNING THE ROPES, BEFORE SENDING DRAKE OUT TO RINGSIDE WITH A CLOTHESLINE!

Rich Russillo: TLA RUNS THE ROPES AS DRAKE GETS BACK UP, AND TLA SENDS DRAKE INTO THE BARRICADE WITH A SUICIDE DIVE!!!

James Peters: TLA now pulling Drake up, AND DRAKE DELIVERS A PUNCH TO THE MIDSECTION, BEFORE GRABBING TLA AND SENDING HIM INTO THE APRON! TLA stumbles off, AND NOW DRAKE RUNS IN FOR A LARIAT BUT TLA DUCKS UNDER IT BEFORE KICKING DRAKE IN THE MIDSECTION! MEXICAN DESTROYER!!!!

(TLA gets back to his feet after the move, fired up as the fans in the audience explode with cheers.)

James Peters: TLA JUST LAID OUT DRAKE KING ONE WEEK AFTER TERRITORIAL INVASION, AND AFTER WHAT HAPPENED I DON’T THINK ANYBODY CAN SAY HE DIDN’T DESERVE THAT!

Rich Russillo: Yeah, Drake absolutely had that coming, and something tells me that these two aren’t finished with each other just yet. Drake and Eden tried to get rid of TLA, and that might have been their biggest mistake.

(‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ hits once more as the fans continue to cheer. TLA stands over Drake King, and that’s the final image shown as the camera fades from ringside.)

(Promotional ad for Wicked Games, Voltage’s next free-per-view event.)

(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the ring.)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!!!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(‘Catch Me If You Can’ by BABYMETAL hits to cheers from the crowd. After a few seconds, Usagi Senshi walks out to the stage, and she begins to make her way towards the ring with just a very focused look on her face, fitting of the attitude she’s carried with her this season. Usagi knows what kind of match this is, and wants to waste as little time as possible.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first from Fukuoka, Japan weighing in at 115 pounds she is the “Master of Excellence” USSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSAAAAAAAAAAAGIIIIIIIIIII SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENSHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Usagi Senshi was part of the Ice Aces’ match at Territorial Invasion where they lost but by their own will after ARIA revealed the dark truth behind Eden Sinclair. Wait I work here… should I even be saying that? :lupe:

James Peters: Too late now Rich. I wish you luck in your future endeavors. In all seriousness though, Usagi put on one hell of a performance in that match and there are some who think that the Ice Aces may have won if ARIA hadn’t made the call to throw the match so that TLA could return to Voltage.

Rich Russillo: We may never know that but with an L in the record books Usagi is obviously out to correct that here tonight against Daryl. This week Usagi got into a rather heated war of words with Daryl after he brought up her girlfriend and Ice Ace friends.

James Peters: Usagi has made some rather bold claims including saying that Daryl isn’t much of a challenge to her. She is sick of Daryl’s supposed arrogance and claims he is high on himself and she is going to bring him back down to earth tonight with a loss in that ring. These fans support her and sure think that she can do it! But we will see!!!

(‘Primrose’ by Dream State hits, and the crowd has a loud, mixed reaction for Daryl Kinkade who makes his second entrance of the night, having joined team Voltage in attacking Ronan Malosi earlier. Despite that, Daryl looks prepared for this match as he and Usagi stare at one another, no love lost after the heated exchange throughout the week.)

Bella Braxton: And her opponent from Norwich, England weighing in at 225 pounds he is “The Kink of Elite” DARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRYL KINKADEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

(Daryl Kinkade makes his way out to the ring looking very confident as he smirks down at Usagi Senshi in the ring his mere presence is enough to visibly agitate her.)

Rich Russillo: It was pretty clear that Daryl Kinkade was on a mission to get under people’s skin this week. But we also know he has the skill to back his talk up. Daryl is coming out here confident but he has also admitted that he isn’t happy because he wanted to do more than he did at Brand Warfare in spite of the win.

James Peters: Daryl Kinkade is sick of not quite getting the job done in big matches such as when he faced Charlie Marr or his matches against TLA and Minerva. But tonight maybe Daryl should consider this match to be one of those main event tier matches and get some practice in because he is intent on turning this around.

Rich Russillo: Well this easily could be on par with any of those matches. Usagi Senshi is not one to be underestimated and I doubt that Daryl will do that. Daryl has accused the Ice Aces of being boring and generic Elitists but I hope that doesn’t mean he is underestimating them because they can pull out all the stops when you least expect it.

James Peters: Daryl has accused Usagi of throwing a hypocritical tantrum all week and things got pretty heated between them and you know that they are just aching to throw down in the ring tonight. So let’s stop all the talking and jabbering and get to the fighting! Let’s go!

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: We are underway now as Usagi Senshi and Daryl Kinkade are looking to throw down here tonight on Voltage. They exchanged some heated words earlier this week but now it will be interesting to see them put up or shut up. Both competitors get face to face in the ring talking smack to each other as it looks like their war of words is just going to continue on in the ring here tonight. Eventually they both have enough and lunge at each other into a very aggressive lockup in the middle of the ring. Daryl uses all of his strength to shove Usagi across the ring sending her flying through the air into the corner with his aggressive strength!

Rich Russillo: Usagi Senshi falls back into the corner taking a breather reevaluating the situation here. Maybe the head on approach isn’t the way to go up against Daryl Kinkade who seems to be anticipating her but he does have more than a one hundred pound advantage on her she’s probably not going to be pushing him around tonight. Usagi gets back up… and she charges in for the lockup! What? That’s just the same thing again Usagi wh- No! Usagi uses the force behind the shove from Daryl as expected but grabs his arm and sends him flying instead! A smart counter there by Usagi who found a way to turn Daryl’s strength against him! Daryl is aghast as he lies on the ground realizing that he has been bested and he is clearly not happy about it! Daryl is enraged and he immediately gets back up charging wildly at Usagi! They lockup with Daryl shoving her back as hard as he can!

James Peters: But Usagi Senshi holds onto his arms yet again and they go spilling over the top rope! Usagi and Daryl Kinkade fly over the top rope to the outside slamming onto the apron as they fall eventually splatting on the floor below! But they haven’t stopped slugging it out! These two are really going at it throwing fists as they continue to beat on each other on the outside and this match has lost control! The referee is trying to urge them back into the ring and threatening the count out. It looks like that method worked as both competitors backed off and are trying to calm themselves down as they return to the ring. We need to have a nice fair competitive contest, no need to have any hard feelings over it. It’s just professional wrestling business. But things can certainly get heated in the midst of fierce competition. Both competitors slowly return to the ring and face off once again.

Rich Russillo: Daryl Kinkade and Usagi Senshi lock up in the ring with Usagi immediately transitioning Daryl into a Side Headlock. But Daryl breaks free of it grabbing the leg of Usagi and tipping her backwards onto her back. Daryl holds the arm of Usagi as she falls whipping her around in a snap like motion. Usagi suddenly with the Leg Sweep! But Daryl leaps high into the air not letting his legs get taken out from under him by that move from Usagi! But Usagi had it scouted as well grabbing his leg as he came back down and tilting him forward sending Daryl flying face first down onto the mat! Daryl immediately back up as he angrily shoves Usagi back! But Usagi responds with a hard slap to the face! The disrespect being shown by both competitors as Daryl responds with a hard kick to the gut! Usagi eats that blow followed by a barrage of back elbow strikes to the face just battering her down to her knees. Daryl not playing around anymore as he has forgone wrestling in favor of going full strike mode.

Persephone: I wish I could forgo wrestling for this entire show!

Rich Russillo: :usure:

Persephone: Because I’d rather be watching the trailer for “The Little Mermaid” being released next May in live action by Disney! It’s gonna be great!

Rich Russillo: :drakelike:

James Peters: Usagi Senshi collapses from Daryl Kinkade’s strikes but he picks her up and lifts her up over his shoulders! Daryl drops Usagi down hard on her back in the ring with a vicious Powerslam. What strength! Daryl then grabs the arm of Usagi and locks in a Cross Armbreaker right in the middle of the ring! Daryl trying to rip Usagi’s arm right out of the socket! Usagi may in fact be forced to tap out here tonight… but no! She manages to get her foot on the ropes! Daryl forced to break the hold as Usagi managed to get out of it before she was trapped for too long right there. Daryl goes to pick Usagi back up but she hangs onto his shoulders and drops down hard on her knees! That had to hurt as Daryl falls backwards staggering. Usagi quickly hops up and begins hammering hard into Daryl’s back just really going in as she delivers hard clubbing blows into his back but is unable to drop him.

Rich Russillo: Daryl Kinkade gets rocked as Usagi Senshi goes to whip him across the ring but he simply holds her arm refusing to allow her to whip him! Usagi with a Superkick to the face! But Daryl ducks beneath the blow! Daryl shoves Usagi from behind as she bounces front first off the ropes and comes flying backwards. Hard knee to the back of Usagi from Daryl as Usagi crumples to the ground but quickly rolls to the outside of the ring yelling loudly and holding her back in pain. He really nailed her there right in the lower back and that definitely was a painful strike. Usagi recovering on the outside as she gets back up defiantly and looks up at Daryl in the ring. She’s wondering what it is going to take to defeat this man as she paces on the outside before making her way back into the ring to try once again. Daryl looks on defiantly as well as he seems to think he has the advantage in this match and it is only a matter of time before he puts Usagi away with one move or another.

James Peters: The lockup in the ring as Daryl Kinkade grabs the arm but Usagi Senshi leaps across the ring with the roll through! Usagi grabs the arm of Daryl and rolls him up into a Small Package!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: No! Daryl Kinkade kicks out! But Usagi Senshi immediately rolls on top of Daryl Kinkade keeping him grounded and not wanting to give up this rare advantage that she has gained here tonight. Usagi hooks the leg and applies an STF on Daryl! The STF has been applied and Daryl is trapped in that devastating hold and may have to tap out here tonight real quick! But Daryl manages to break his leg free! Daryl breaks the hold and manages to stand up! Daryl puts his hands together and lurches forward with a Double Axe Handle right to the face of Usagi! No! Usagi ducks that and runs off the ropes! But Daryl catches her on the rebound with a Running Bicycle Kick! Usagi goes flying over the top rope to the outside and she is down and out! The referee beginning the count as Usagi may be done for having had her entire head kicked off and sent flying into the audience literally!

Persephone: No not literally. Learn to use words Rich. But why is the referee counting? The match shouldn’t end this way! 😃

Referee: ONE!! TWO!!! THREE!!!! F-

James Peters: But Usagi Senshi crawls her way back onto the apron! Daryl Kinkade is right there to cut her off! But Usagi suddenly leaps up grabbing the head of Daryl and pulls him neck first down over the top rope! Daryl goes flying backwards coughing and heaving holding his neck as he just messed up big time and handed Usagi a big advantage going forward in this match! Usagi finally climbs back into the ring knowing now is her time to strike indeed. Usagi grabs the rising Daryl by the neck and connects with a Swinging Neckbreaker dropping him and rocking him. Usagi to the cov- No! Daryl is getting back up already and Usagi instead transitions into a series of hard forearms beating him backwards into the corner aggressively. Usagi whips Daryl out of the corner but Daryl reverses! But Usagi holds onto the arm of Daryl whipping him round once again throwing him face first into the turnbuckle padding! Usagi grabs the leg of Daryl hooking him in and connecting with a Russian Leg Sweep! Usagi into the cover!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: The kickout from Daryl Kinkade! Daryl kicks out with authority but Usagi Senshi staying on him. She knows she has to keep him under control as she isn’t going to let this advantage slip through her fingers. She just has to keep him down keep doing damage and soon enough it will be lights out! Usagi positions herself on top of Daryl in an MMA style as she applies a headlock and delivers repeated elbow strikes to the top of his head. Daryl is fading and the referee might have to stop the match as Usagi really has him trapped and is battering his brains in up in here. But Daryl is slowly powering back up! Daryl not giving into this move as he manages to get one leg up… he manages to get… NO! Daryl falls back down with Usagi on top of him as she clenches in that headlock even deeper and continues to bash on him! Usagi now with repeated knee strikes to the head of Daryl who is again trying to fight his way back up through the pain!

James Peters: Usagi Senshi continues with the strikes but Daryl Kinkade with the will to stand up regardless and you have to admit that is admirable. Daryl gets his own knee up driving it into the gut of Usagi! Daryl breaks free with a shot to the face of Usagi as the headlock is broken! Daryl with a Roundhouse Kick to the face of Usagi dropping her to the mat! Daryl collapses from what he had to endure to get that move in as both competitors are laid out on the mat! The referee is counting. Could we have a draw out here tonight?

Persephone: Oh nos! I surely hope not! I hope they are okily dokily!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TE-

Rich Russillo: Daryl Kinkade gets back up and Usagi Senshi is back up on wobbly legs as well! They beat the count!

Persephone: Yay! 😃 !!!

James Peters: Daryl Kinkade makes his way over to Usagi Senshi who swings at him wildly with a haymaker! Daryl easily ducks beneath it going behind her and throws her back with a Snap Dragon Suplex out of nowhere! What velocity on that Snap Dragon! He makes it look easy! Usagi back up as Daryl grabs her from behind targeting her lower back he injured earlier with repeated strikes to the spine. Just sharp quick jabs and it is very effective! Usagi falls back into the corner where Daryl stalks her to continuing to light her up with strikes as she tries in vain to defend herself. Usagi kicks the arm of Daryl away and charges right for his face with a Running Forearm, AND IT CONNECTS, CAUSING DARYL TO STUMBLE BACK! Usagi charges forward immediately after but has her arm and head hooked by Daryl. SNAP SUPLEX FROM DARYL CONNECTS DROPPING USAGI IN THE RING! Daryl transitions into the cover!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: This time Usagi Senshi is the one who gets the shoulder up! But Daryl Kinkade thinks that he has this thing on lock and you can tell by his demeanor he isn’t concerned about the kickout at all. Daryl pulls Usagi back up and whips her across the ring. He catches Usagi as she runs across the ring and drives her down with a thunderous Side Slam directly into the mat and that has to be it! But Daryl not going for a cover yet he is going to punish her and make sure she is down for the count next time! Daryl grabs Usagi by the arm wrenching it back as Usagi immediately grabs onto the ropes before Daryl can get whatever kind of painful hold he had in plan applied. The referee forces the break.

Referee: BREAK IT UP! SHE HAS THE ROPES!!!

James Peters: Daryl Kinkade has no choice but to comply as Usagi Senshi rolls away using the ropes to help herself up. Daryl grabs her arm and whips her across the ring. He throws her back with a Back Toss!!! NO! Usagi in midair! Usagi counters transitioning into a Hurricanrana tossing Daryl across the ring! Usagi showing some extreme agility with that maneuver countering as Daryl rolls back to his feet. Usagi charges in… But Daryl with a Superkick out of nowhere catching her in the gut as it was a lower type of Superkick! Usagi goes back first into the corner!!! DARYL CHARGES IN AT FULL SPEED WITH A RUNNING SHOULDER THRUST INTO THE CORNER!!!

Rich Russillo: NO! BIG MISTAKE! USAGI SENSHI MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AND DARYL KINKADE LUNGED ALL THE WAY BETWEEN THE MIDDLE ROPE AND WENT SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE METAL POLE! Daryl falls to the outside of the ring holding his shoulder and screaming in pain! He may have dislocated that thing off that charge right there!

Persephone: No! Maybe we should end the match? We don’t want them to get hurt too badly! Violence is not right!

James Peters: Daryl Kinkade is in severe pain as Usagi Senshi has collapsed in the ring recovering from the ordeal that the match has taken on her. I can’t believe it but somehow Daryl managed to get back up first on the outside. Usagi struggling to get back up as Daryl rolls his way back into the ring and this is her chance to take advantage of Daryl’s injury if she really wants to win the match. Daryl favoring his shoulder as suddenly he realizes that Usagi is up on the top rope!!! Usagi with a Flying Corkscrew Press landing atop Daryl!!! Usagi into the cover!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Referee: THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: Daryl Kinkade found the will within to kick out! Usagi Senshi thought she had him there but Daryl isn’t finished just yet! You can definitely see the fatigue having set in for both of these competitors who have given it their all in this ring tonight. Usagi angrily stomping on Daryl just kicking him while he’s down and doing some damage before she eventually lifts him back up. But Daryl clings to the ropes trying to get away from her so she has to kick his arms and punch him in the head repeatedly to force him to break away. Usagi whips Daryl across the ring… No! Daryl reverses it whipping her across! Daryl catches Usagi in midair and spins around driving her into the mat with a devastating Spinebuster!!!

James Peters: No! Usagi Senshi counters in midair with a Spinning Tornado DDT planting Daryl Kinkade face first into the mat! Usagi just wrecked Daryl!!! But she is laid out as well and can’t get to the cover! Usagi has this thing here and Daryl has been knocked out as the referee begins the ten count! No wait! Usagi manages to suddenly get back up!!! She has done it! Wait! Daryl up as well and Usagi hasn’t even noticed!!! Usagi turns around… Daryl kicks her in the gut… HAIL TO THE VICTOR CONNECTS!!! PUMPHANDLE PILEDRIVER!!! THIS IS IT!!! DARYL TO THE COVER!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: How the hell!!! Usagi Senshi kicks out!!!

Persephone: Hell is an inappropriate word Rich. I am reporting you.

Rich Russillo: :whoa: !!!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: Daryl Kinkade can’t believe he didn’t win the match with that move and he is completely exhausted. But the match isn’t over! The referee is counting both men down as Daryl struggles to get back to his feet and he eventually does. Daryl has to have at least one more big move left in him and that may be all it will take to put Usagi away! Daryl lifts Usagi back up slowly and lifts her into the air… but he can’t get her up! He’s too tired and collapses! But Daryl not giving up! He yanks her back up lifting her up into the air!!! DARYL WITH A BEAUTIFUL LIE!!!

Rich Russillo: No! Usagi Senshi counters in midair landing down behind Daryl Kinkade! Daryl whips around wildly… Usagi manages to lift Daryl up onto her shoulders!!! CRITICAL DARLING!!! SAMOAN DRIVER CONNECTS!!!! USAGI TO THE COVER!!! CAN SHE PUT DARYL AWAY????!?!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

James Peters: No! No! No! Daryl Kinkade somehow kicked out!!! Usagi Senshi is shook! Usagi has passed out in the ring and she has nothing left! Daryl has nothing left! Both competitors are down and out as Usagi crawls slowly across the ring! Usagi makes it to the ropes to help herself up but can she even do it? We might just have to end this thing as a draw folks! But the fans don’t want to see that! I don’t want to see that!

Persephone: I don’t either! 😃

Rich Russillo: Of course not queen! None of us do! Usagi Senshi now goes to pick Daryl Kinkade up as she has something else in mind! Usagi shoves Daryl back!!! She charges in!!! FATALITY!!! USAGI WITH THE RUNNING BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE!!!

James Peters: No! Daryl Kinkade moved out the way! Daryl grabs Usagi!!! CROSS LEGGED FISHERMAN BUSTER CONNECTS!!! DARYL HITS A BEAUTIFUL LIE ON USAGI AND SHE IS DECEASED! DARYL INTO THE COVER!!!! THIS MATCH IS OVER!!!

(Suddenly Amaya steps out onto stage.)

Amaya: Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Children of all ages! Please get on your feet and deliver a fifteen minute long standing ovation for the face of Voltage! The man who single handedly brought VICTORY home for this brand in the Brand Warfare! THE HERO OF VOLTAGE HIMSELF!!!

Rich Russillo: Oh no.

Amaya: ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN MALLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Daryl Kinkade sits up with a look of confusion on his face as Ronan Malosi struts out to the stage wearing a suit and tipping his fedora towards him on stage as he smirks. Ronan begins to make his way down the ramp to heavy boos from the crowd.)

James Peters: What the hell is he doing out here? Was the beating that Daryl and the rest of Team Voltage gave him earlier not enough for him? Is he back for more?

(Ronan Malosi takes the mic from Amaya.)

Persephone: :whoa: !!! Not that!

Ronan Malosi: Hey Daryl! You messed with the wrong man earlier! What do you say we turn this thing into a Triple Threat Match???

Daryl Kinkade: (off-mic) Ok fine get in here right now!

Ronan Malosi: :whoa: Wait a minute I didn’t think you were going to accept…

Daryl Kinkade: (off-mic) Well I did. Let’s do it!

Ronan Malosi: Fine. On one condition. Turn around.

(Daryl Kinkade shrugs as he turns around with Ronan Malosi smiling deviously.)

James Peters: USAGI SENSHI CHARGES IN AND CONNECTS WITH THE FATALITY!!! SHE GETS ALL OF IT THIS TIME!!! USAGI INTO THE COVER!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ronan Malosi: :mjlol:

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ronan Malosi: :mjlol2:

Referee: THRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ronan Malosi: :russ:

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… UUUUUUUUUUUUUSSSSSSSSSSSAGGGGGGGIIIIIII SENSHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!

( ‘Catch Me If You Can’ – BABYMETAL hits from cheers from the crowd as Ronan Malosi enters the ring to raise Usagi Senshi’s arm in victory. However, she yanks her arm away from him and leaves the ring looking disgusted. )

James Peters: What an absolute disgrace! Daryl Kinkade had this match won! He had a great performance tonight only to have it be ruined by this clown! Get Ronan the hell out of here right now! He’s a disgrace to Voltage!

Rich Russillo: Not to take away from Usagi Senshi’s performance either… but this can’t be how she wanted to win this match. Ronan Malosi has made a mockery of this fantastic match and has robbed a true winner from the people who have been enjoying it here tonight!

Persephone: At least Voltage won at Brand Warfare. Considering that does anything else really matter?

James Peters: *audibly facepalms*

(Suddenly Daryl Kinkade sits up in the ring with Ronan Malosi almost literally leaping over the top rope to get to the outside of the ring. Daryl is visibly furious clenching his teeth and shaking as he watches Ronan leave up the ramp smiling. Daryl falls backwards in pain unable to get up to go after him. Ronan spends some time at ringside pointing and laughing at Daryl in the ring before leaving himself.)

James Peters: Well it would seem that Ronan has signed himself up for yet another beating. I can’t imagine that Daryl Kinkade is going to take this lying down… Well aside from right now where he is too hurt to get up. But that won’t last forever!

Rich Russillo: Ronan better watch his back!

(The camera cuts to a commercial for the upcoming “EAW: A Legacy of CTE” documentary exploring the effects this mysterious curse has had upon various Elitists. From Suicide Kid to Xander Payne learn the dark truth behind the trauma only on Disney+!!!)

(‘Blood, Milk & Sky’ by White Zombie hits as the crowd explodes into cheers. The camera returns to the stage as this happens, and after a few seconds the fans are greeted by the EAW World Champion, Minerva. Minerva has the EAW World Championship around her waist, and she begins to walk down the ramp just one week after her victory in the main event of Territorial Invasion.)

James Peters: The EAW World Champion is here, and so far she has been undefeated this season thanks to her victory at Territorial Invasion, where her, Hikari Kanno, and Drake King won the Anarchy in the Arena match. Then again, I’d say most of the credit belongs to Minerva and Hikari.

Rich Russillo: That’s right. They were actually in the match from the start and had to work together. In the end they still won, but I’ll say this. I’m very certain that everyone involved with that match is glad to not have to work together anymore.

Persephone: Awww ☹️. They were such a good team though! I would like to see them keep teaming up over and over, I’m sure it’d be a lot of fun!

(Minerva enters the ring before looking over at the timekeepers area, and an official hands her a microphone as the fans continue to cheer. It takes a while for the fans to quiet down, but once they do Minerva begins to speak.)

Minerva: I’m not at all surprised that even after all that happened at Territorial Invasion, Drake King would come out here and pretend he’s the one responsible for Voltage’s victory. He spent half of the match locked in a closet because I was proven right not to trust him, and where did that leave Hikari and I? Outnumbered throughout the entire match, yet still completely fine because in the end we didn’t need Drake King whatsoever. If anyone should be out here talking about the work they put in to leave that match with the win, it’s the Elitists that were actually there from the start, fighting for their brand because they were actually trustworthy and not going behind their partners backs. This was always going to happen, though. Everybody knows that Drake is nothing more than a disgusting narcissist, so I’m not going to waste any more time on him, because the Anarchy in the Arena match is over and it went exactly how it was supposed to. Voltage won, and now I can finally move on and continue fighting on my own, relying on nobody but myself to prove that I’m the greatest this company has to offer. There’s only one thing that I want to do and now that Territorial Invasion is done I have the opportunity to do it, so as we move to Wicked Games I want everyone in the back to listen very carefully. I’m putting this title on the line.

(The crowd explodes into cheers hearing that Minerva plans to defend her title once again.)

Minerva: That’s right. At Wicked Games I’ll put my EAW Championship on the line against anyone that walks down that ramp, but before any of you rush down here for a title shot I just hope you all understand that I’ve been here before. I’ve defended this title twice already with the exact same outcome each time, and soon enough it’ll be a third, because no matter who walks down that ramp I’m going to walk into Wicked Games and put them down. All throughout this title reign I have proven that I can put down any challenger that’s put in front of me, and when I say this I’m not just referring to this title being on the line. I’m referring to every match I have had since Pain for Pride. As of right now there’s not a single person that can say they’ve picked up a win against me this season, and there’s a reason for that, just like there’s a reason that I’m still the EAW World Champion after all this time and two different challengers, so before you walk down this ramp I want you all to remember just what it is you’ll be doing. You won’t just be walking into Wicked Games to fight for the EAW World Championship. You’ll be walking into Wicked Games to fight ME for my title. You’ll be heading into my third Championship defense with the goal of doing what two others have already been unable to and taking this out of my hands. If you walk down this ramp then there should be no excuses come Wicked Games, because this is your warning. At this point you know exactly who I am, so if you think you’re ready, all you have to do is say so.

(The cheers continue as Minerva begins to wait for an opponent.)

James Peters: Well you heard it here first! This is exactly how Minerva started her title reign, and now she’s bringing back the open challenge!

Rich Russillo: Yeah, I just wonder who’s actually going to walk down the ramp. It could literally be anybody on the Voltage roster, back at the Draft it was Ronan Malosi! Who knows who’ll-

(Before Rich could finish speaking, ‘Praise The Lord’ by Bandokay hits, catching everyone by surprise. It takes a little while for the fans in the arena to start booing, not at all expecting the Hardcore Champion, Charlie Marr, to be the one that walks out. Nonetheless, Charlie Marr holds a microphone in his hand while carrying his Hardcore Championship on his shoulder with the other, and he walks down the ramp as Minerva just watches.)

James Peters: Wait, WHAT??

Rich Russillo: It’s Charlie Marr!! The Hardcore Champion is here after Voltage’s Brand Warfare win, but.. Is he about to challenge Minerva??

James Peters: We all know how talented and dangerous Charlie is, but I didn’t expect a Champion like him to be the one to walk down and accept the challenge! What does all of this mean??

(Charlie Marr walks into the ring, where he and the EAW World Champion have a staredown, until finally Minerva begins to speak.)

Minerva: Does this mean that you’re stepping up, because I don’t actually care about the fact that you’re the Hardcore Champion. When I put out this open challenge and warned the entire locker room about what was to come, I wasn’t excluding any of the other Champions.

Charlie Marr: Isn’t it obvious? Anarchy in the Arena isn’t the only match Voltage won at Territorial Invasion. There was also Brand Warfare, a match that had an actual main eventer and legitimate star as the team Captain. For the past three years Voltage won that match and we got that third win because I led the team and made sure nobody on the other two brands could compare to us even with that waste of space Ronan Malosi on the team, and as a former winner of the match you of all people should know what that means. I received a favor, a well deserved favor for the work it took to make Voltage’s Brand Warfare team such an unstoppable force, and instead of wasting my time thinking about what I could do with it, I used it to get what I deserved. Since this season started this Hardcore Championship has been stuck on ordinary shows being defended against the bottom of the barrel and I’m far above that. I deserve to have my talents recognized in the main event of every single free-per-view event that comes around, so if I can’t have that with the Hardcore Championship I’ll just take what was always going to be mine as soon as we ended up on the same roster. No need to look for a challenger, I used my favor to get a shot at the EAW Championship at Wicked Games.

(The crowd explodes with cheers, completely out of shock from the announcement Charlie Marr just made.)

Minerva: Really?

Charlie Marr: Do you think I’m joking?

Minerva: No, I’m just not sure why you’d waste your favor on a match you can’t win.

Charlie Marr: Oh right, I forgot. You beat Ronan Malosi so nobody else stands a chance. Don’t be stupid, you know you haven’t had a threat to the EAW Championship like me before, and better yet you know that I was both the best and worst possible Elitist you could’ve had challenge you. Now you’ll finally be getting a real challenge, but it’ll be happening in the final match in your title reign. I’ve had enough dealing with the likes of ARIA and Roberto. It’s a waste of time, everyone knows that they couldn’t beat me on my worst day, and that EAW Championship has my name on it. My last reign with that title was one of the best reigns this company has ever seen, and I think it’s about time I become World Champion and once again stand where I belong, at the top of this brand.

Minerva: Do you really believe it matters to me who steps up to fight for my title? I accept all challengers for a reason, Charlie. No matter who steps up the result will be the same. I’ve gone this entire season without facing an Elitist actually capable of putting me down, so no I don’t believe that you don’t stand a chance because of Ronan Malosi. I know you don’t stand a chance because I’ve already spent years proving to be the most dangerous person in the company, and since Pain for Pride I’ve been on the right track to becoming a World Champion none of you are capable of dethroning. I gave you a warning just to stop you from making yourself look stupid, and in the end my warning didn’t even matter because you had already gone and had the match made. I get it, you won the Brand Warfare match even if you weren’t actually there when the match was won, so now you seem to think you’re ready to move on to bigger and better things and not stick with what you were doing before. I don’t care about what choices you make for your career, but when you try to come after my title, you’ll suffer the exact same fate everyone else does.

(The crowd cheers, but Charlie Marr doesn’t look phased at all by Minerva’s words.)

Charlie Marr: I’m not any of your last challengers. I could see why you’d actually live up to your promises against Ronan Malosi or Daryl Kinkade, but I’m not like either of them. You’ve had the luck of defending your title against mediocre opponents on free-per-view events all season long, and I can’t get this title on one of those shows at all when everybody knows that I’m already the best Champion in the company. I’m not about to keep wasting my season because Disney doesn’t want to see me with the Hardcore Championship, so enjoy your title reign while it lasts, because at Wicked Games you’re about to have your first and last real challenge. I’m an EAW Hall of Famer. I’ve had this Hardcore Championship almost all year because nobody, including BOTH of your last challengers, could take it away from me, and before
long I’m going to be a double Champion because you’re not good enough to stop me. I’m the best I’ve ever been and it’s time that I get what I deserve after carrying this brand on my back for the entire season. This place needs me more than anybody else on the roster, which is why I’m the man in the main event week after week even without the EAW Championship. This is the Charlie Marr show and after Wicked Games none of you will be denying that, because I’m not just leaving that show as Hardcore Champion. I’m taking that title, and I’m going to be returning to Voltage as the Hardcore Champion AND the EAW World Champion.

(The crowd starts to boo once more as Minerva and Charlie stare at one another, until finally ‘Praise The Lord’ begins to play once again.)

James Peters: Wow, what a huge announcement! Charlie Marr earlier in the week mentioned something about maybe wanting to go and challenge Minerva, but I’m pretty sure we all thought it was just a joke! How could we have expected him to actually be the one to answer this open challenge?

Rich Russillo: We couldn’t have, but in the end it just made for a very exciting EAW World Championship match at Wicked Games! I can’t wait to see these two face each other, I just know that their match is going to be fantastic.

Persephone: You’re sure right about that! It’s a good thing the Hardcore Championship can’t be defended on these events either. Everyone knows that there’s nothing more exciting than ordinary matches without any sort of stipulation. 🙂

(As ‘Praise The Lord’ continues to play, Charlie Marr begins to walk out of the ring with a smirk on his face after announcing the Wicked Games match. Minerva remains in the ring, staring down her challenger and the Hardcore Champion as Voltage fades away from ringside.)

(Voltage cuts to the another promotional ad for Wicked Games, which features the newly confirmed match between Minerva and Charlie Marr for the EAW World Championship.)

(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the ring.)

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…ONE FALL!!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!

(‘Unbreakable’ by Fireflight plays to a loud reaction from fans, who have grown to love newcomer, Kylie Grace, who rides down to the stage on her miniboard. She waves to them on the stage before heading down the ramp area, interacting with fans on her way to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first! Hailing out of San Diego, California, weighing in at 125 pounds…KYLIE GRACE!!

James Peters: Tonight, Kylie has an opportunity of a lifetime, and that’s to score a win over Theron Nikolas. Granted, it’s easier said than done.

Persephone: That’s an understatement if anything.

James Peters: I wouldn’t cut Kylie short, we’ve seen upsets happen in the past, and we’ve seen the qualities she possesses to be a future big time player here in EAW.

(“Pass The Nirvana” by PTV plays out Theron and Natasha to an equally positive reaction from fans. While Kylie’s demeanor was more bubbly, Theron is more reserved, focused on the task at hand, which is his match against Grace.)

Bella Braxton: And her opponent! Hailing out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, weighing in at 224 pounds, accompanied to the ring by Natasha Angello…HE IS THE GHOST…THERON NIKOLAS!!

Rich Russillo: Theron’s focused, meaning Kylie will have to bring her “A” game in order to stand a chance.

James Peters: She would’ve had to bring her “A” game regardless.

Rich Russillo: True. But they’re both coming off big wins at Territorial Invasion, although only one will keep the momentum rolling.

James Peters: Let’s see who that shall be.

(Theron takes off his entrance gear, and turns to face Kylie in the opposite corner, both competitors prepping themselves.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

James Peters: The bell has rung, and this match is officially underway between Theron Nikolas and Kylie Grace. Theron has the size advantage, standing in at 6’1, and as mentioned by Bella Braxton, weighing in at 224 pounds.

Rich Russillo: Once again, Kylie finds the odds stacked against her, but she’s not completely out of this fight, just needs to accentuate against someone like Theron.

James Peters: The crowd are electric for this match as both competitors circle one another before locking up in the center of the ring. KYLIE WITH A SCHOOL GIRL ROLLUP! HOPING TO SCORE ONE EARLY!

ONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOO-

Rich Russillo: Kickout! Remember when I talked about accentuating her strengths? Well, she just did exactly that, using quickness to her advantage, catching Nikolas off guard.

James Peters: Grace scrambles back to her feet, meanwhile, Theron gets to a knee, staring down his opponent, who creates some slight separation, giving Theron room to stand up. Not sure if this was a wise move on Kylie’s part, she should’ve stayed on him.

Persephone: Wow! More circling! 😀

Rich Russillo: Which leads to another collar and elbow tie-up. This time, Theron gets the advantage with a standing side headlock. He wrenches on the hold, having firm control over Kylie before she bounces him off the ropes, freeing herself! SHOULDER TACKLE BY THERON! A cover is made!

ONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!

James Peters: Kylie kicks out! Theron watches from a kneel as she gets to all fours, and wraps her in the side headlock once more. Grace powers back to her feet, and sends Nikolas off the ropes again! Drop down by Kylie! Followed up by a leapfrog! DROPKICK!

Rich Russillo: Theron goes down momentarily, and Kylie scales the middle rope, stalking her opposition. DIVING HURRICANRANA! Theron sits up, but is laid back down for a cover by Kylie!

ONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!

James Peters: Theron explodes out of the cover! Kylie stands him back up, and delivers a forearm smash to the face! Theron is stunned, and Kylie runs off the ropes! But in a turn of events, there’s a leapfrog by Theron, then a drop down! …BACK ELBOW! Kylie better steer clear of another elbow, which Theron refers to as “Carpe Diem.” It’s finished off multiple opponents already.

Persephone: It’s early on, but gosh! I’m so invested!

James Peters: Glad to hear.

Persephone: :montez:

Rich Russillo: Kylie uses the ropes to pull herself back up. Theron takes notice of this, and charges in! HOWEVER, THOSE ROPES ASSIST KYLIE ONCE MORE AS SHE LOW BRIDGES THE TOP ONE, CAUSING NIKOLAS TO GO UP AND OVER!

James Peters: Natasha yells at Theron, encouraging him to get back up after wiping out. Nikolas uses the apron for assistance, AND THIS LEAVES HIM OPEN FOR A BASEBALL DROPKICK FROM GRACE! Theron stumbled back first into the barricade! Kylie rolls out of the ring, and slams Nikolas face first off the apron before rolling him back inside the ring. Kylie follows suit, and picks Theron up for a snapmare, transitioning into a seated rear chinlock.

Rich Russillo: Kylie’s trying to wear down Nikolas, and you can see it’s working with him struggling for air. But as expected, it’s gonna take a lot more than that to really put a chink in his armor. Theron fights back to a vertical base, and a right handed shot to the body was enough to break the grip of Kylie. THERON RUNS OFF THE ROPES IN FRONT OF HER! KYLIE GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE! THERON DUCKS UNDERNEATH!

James Peters: DROPKICK FROM KYLIE! Despite lacking the experience, she stayed one step ahead of Nikolas, and rushed into a lateral press!

ONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!

James Peters: Theron kicks out, and sits himself up, favoring his mouth and nose area, which he got blasted in by that dropkick. Kylie doesn’t let “The Ghost” breathe, and digs her knee into his back for another rear chinlock.

Rich Russillo: I can respect this approach done by Kylie, not rushing into anything just yet, and being rather calculated with Theron. She’s put together a solid gameplan, and is slowly, but I feel surely wearing him down further and further. It takes energy for Theron to power back to his feet quite like he is now. Nikolas successfully pries the hands apart of Kylie, and scores with a hard right!

James Peters: DROPKICK BY THERON! Kylie crawls to the corner, and picks herself up in it, but Theron isn’t gonna allow her separation. He’s hot in pursuit- WALKING RIGHT INTO A BACK ELBOW! Nikolas is dazed, and Kylie climbs to the top rope, but she took a bit too long, and paid for it with a right hand. Actually, a barrage of them by Theron, making sure she’s stunned on the top turnbuckle.

Rich Russillo: Theron climbs to the middle rope, and hooks her up for a TOP ROPE SUPERPLEX! Nikolas clutches at the back of his neck, the superplex having taken some out of each competitor. But he scoots over into a cover on Kylie, hooking the leg!

ONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHH-

James Peters: SHOULDER UP!

Rich Russillo: Theron wasted some time, and wasn’t able to make the cover right away, giving Kylie a chance to recover. Theron gets to his feet, and Kylie gets to all fours. Nikolas stands her back up for a STIFF European uppercut! Kylie went down, but got back up, getting her jaw jacked with ANOTHER European uppercut! Kylie goes down a second time!

James Peters: Theron isn’t done, and wants the trifecta, lifting Grace back to her feet. EUROPEAN UPPERC- NO! KYLIE COUNTERED WITH A BACKSLIDE!

ONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

James Peters: Immediate kickout there at two! Both competitors get to their feet at the exact same time with Theron landing the first right hand, grabbing Kylie by the hair when they were knelt down! A second right hand connects by Theron! An Irish whip sends Kylie off the ropes! Wait, she reversed it last minute, sending Theron toward the ropes instead! Grace ducks down, possibly signaling a back body drop!

Persephone: But we don’t find out as Nikolas lands a penalty kick to the face, placing his opponent on wobbly legs! Clothesline takes Kylie down, but she’s right back up, getting another clothesline for her troubles! Kylie’s up a third time, and Theron runs off the ropes!

James Peters: BUT KYLIE SNAPS OUT OF HER DAZE, AND PICKS UP SPEED HERSELF CATCHING THERON WITH A SPANISH FLY, USING HIS OWN MOMENTUM AGAINST HIM!

Persephone: 🤯

Rich Russillo: Kylie hooks the leg!

ONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHRRRR-

Rich Russillo: KICKOUT! That was a close one, the referee’s hand almost hitting three.

James Peters: I think it was that element of surprise on Kylie’s end. You can tell she’s a bit upset about not getting the three off that, but regardless, begins getting back to her feet. Theron moves at the same pace, and delivers a strong forearm smash! There’s Kylie with a right hand in return!

Rich Russillo: Theron fires back with one of his own! Kylie fires up, and hammers Nikolas with repeated forearms to the face, making sure he’s groggy before running off the ropes in front of him! CALF KICK! Theron gets to his feet, clearly disoriented off that kick, and Kylie takes advantage with a BACKSTABBER! Cover is made, having the leg hooked!

ONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHH-

James Peters: THERON POWERS OUT! Kylie is knelt over a downed Nikolas, questioning what more she’s gonna have to do in order to put him away. Frustration is washing over her face, but she’s reels it in. Honestly, the smart thing to do, when you’re frustrated, or angry in a match, you start to get sloppy, leading to mistakes. Mistakes that Theron will easily capitalize off.

Rich Russillo: Kylie climbs to the middle rope, awaiting Theron to get up, which he slowly does, having no idea what’s possibly coming his way. KYLIE DIVES OFF WITH A- OOH! THERON CAUGHT HER! THERON HOOKED BOTH HER LEGS IN MID AIR, AND TRANSITIONS INTO A JACKKNIFE PIN!

ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!

James Peters: DOUBLE LEG CRADLE! KYLIE REVERSES WITH A PIN OF HER OWN!

ONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHH-

James Peters: NIKOLAS EXPLODES OUT OF THE COVER, AND BOTH COMPETITORS SCRAMBLE BACK TO THEIR FEET! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT BY THERON! KYLIE’S DAZED, AND THERON ATTEMPTS A SPINNING URANAGE SIDESLAM!

Rich Russillo: KYLIE COUNTERS WITH AN ARM DRAG! Theron hangs himself on the middle rope, AND KYLIE PERFORMS A TRIANGLE DROPKICK, HITTING HIM SQUARE IN THE HEAD! Theron falls to all fours, and Kylie remains on the apron, trying to pull Nikolas back up. Theron delivers a SHOULDER THRUST INTO HER GUT!

James Peters: Theron tries to pull Kylie through the middle rope for a rope-hung DDT! But Grace resists, and drops off the apron, pulling Theron throat first into the top rope! Nikolas doubles over, coughing, and gasping for air. Kylie surveys the scene, and hops back on the apron, SLINGSHOTTING HERSELF OVER THE TOP ROPE FOR A SPIKE DDT! Theron is sprawled on the canvas! Natasha is watching with a keen eye, perhaps some worry flooding in.

Rich Russillo: Theron rolls to the center of the ring, and Kylie starts her ascension to the top rope.

Persephone: Theron isn’t moving.

Rich Russillo: And his window to do so is closing as Kylie balances herself on the top turnbuckle, preparing for takeoff. …FALL FROM GRACE! THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS HITS IT MARK! KYLIE HOOKS THE LEG, POSSIBLY HAVING THERON BEAT HERE!

ONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Persephone: It’s ove-

James Peters: Don’t speak so soon, Persephone! THERON KICKS OUT!

Persephone: :kyrie:

James Peters: Kylie has spent time wearing Theron down, playing the slow game, but still, it wasn’t enough to soften him up for that shooting star press, which was a spectacle in itself. I mean, did you see the height Kylie got on that?

Rich Russillo: It was impressive, but like you said, not enough to put Theron away, which is what matters in a time like this. Kylie needs to find another solution, but right now, she’s evidently fatigued, lying prone on the mat. Theron lies on his side, barely showing any signs of life past that kickout.

James Peters: I feel as if Kylie’s frustration has reached an all time high, she gave it her best shot, and has the gears turning in her head. Grace gets to her feet before Theron, who only gets up to a knee before being brought back to his feet by Kylie. WAIT! HE EXPLODES OUT OF HER GRASP WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT, SOMETHING WEVE SEEN HIM USE TO JACK THE JAW OF HIS OPPONENT MULTIPLE TIMES IN THIS MATCHUP ALREADY!

Persephone: Somehow, Kylie’s still getting caught with it.

Rich Russillo: That uppercut connected with so much force, it spent a groggy Kylie around, and she’s left open for Theron to hit TOUCH OF HEROINE! THE RIPCORD LARIAT! KYLIE’S HEAD SLAPPED OFF THE CANVAS, AND THERON MAKES THE COVER, PINNING HIS FOREARM UP AGAINST HER FACE, PUTTING A LITTLE EXTRA UMPH ON THE COVER!

ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHRRRRR-

James Peters: DESPITE THE TREMENDOUS IMPACT OF THAT CLOTHESLINE, KYLIE FINDS A WAY TO INCH THE SHOULDER UP! Theron looks down at Kylie before getting back up to a vertical base. He’s moving very methodically, grabbing each of Kylie’s hands for a double wrist lock, LEAVING HER DEFENSELESS AS HE REIGNS DOWN UPON HER FACE WITH STOMPS!

Rich Russillo: You talk about her face, Theron might rearrange it if he keeps this up, showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. The referee reprimands Theron for this, and soon he stops the onslaught, going for a cover on Kylie, who looks down and out.

ONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

TH-

James Peters: Still not enough! Theron didn’t rush into that cover, he just kinda took his time, possibly feeling as if he had Kylie unconscious, and perhaps he did for a brief moment, but she came too before the ref’s hand hit three at least. Both competitors are showing resilience, but something’s gotta give, and they’re both looking to find what said something is.

Rich Russillo: Theron slowly brings a prone Kylie back to her feet, holding her by the head. BUT SHE BREAKS FREE, AND GOES FOR THE KY-KICK! HOWEVER, NIKOLAS CATCHES THE BOOT, SUCCESSFULLY STOPPING THE SUPERKICK FROM HAPPENING! Theron throws it down, BUT KYLIE TRIES ONCE MORE, AND NIKOLAS LUCKILY HAD IT SCOUTED! CATCHING THE BOOT, AND TRANSITIONING INTO A SINGLE LEG BOSTON CRAB THIS TIME!

James Peters: THERON WRENCHES ON IT, PUTTING TORQUE ON THE HOLD! Nikolas has Kylie in a bad position, even if she doesn’t tap out, this hold wouldn’t have been for nothing. He can badly damage her leg, effectively putting Ky-Kick attempts to a halt, he could even stop the Fall From Grace. Who knows if Kylie could balance herself on the top rope with only one good leg.

Rich Russillo: Pain is etched across her face right now, and screaming can be heard. You gotta feel as tapping out has crossed the mind of Kylie. But she decides against it, crawling towards the bottom rope, and hooking her arms there. The referee tells Theron to get off, which he does, not spending any extra time, and giving a clean break. Perhaps he feels the damage is already done.

James Peters: Theron stomps the back of Kylie’s knee, and she clutches at it while rolling away from Nikolas, hoping to create separation, enough to figure out a game plan, and get back into this thing. Theron slowly closes in on Kylie, watching her get up to a knee in the center. He picks her up, and Irish whips her into the corner! THERON BUILDS A FULL HEAD OF STEAM, BUT RUNS RIGHT INTO A BIG BOOT FROM KYLIE!

Rich Russillo: That boot connected square on Theron’s jaw, which he favors, spinning around, and dropping to a knee. Kylie turns her back to Theron in the corner, AND SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE, CATCHING HIM IN A SUNSET FLIP AS HE TURNED AROUND, SLIGHTLY DOUBLED OVER!

ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHRRRRREEEEEEE-

James Peters: LAST MINUTE! LAST MINUTE, THERON WAS ABLE TO ESCAPE! Nikolas lies prone on the canvas, and Kylie is up to all fours, pounding on the mat in anger, which has slowly been building up.

Rich Russillo: Kylie gets to a knee, and Theron gets to his, both competitors are back up at the same time. AND KYLIE LEVELS HIM WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! Theron is barely able to stand after that, and Kylie looks to follow up with an Irish whip to the corner! No! Theron reverses at the last minute, sending her to the corner instead!

James Peters: Theron rushes in, but Kylie gets both feet up. This time, Theron expected it, catching both feet, and spinning her legs out through the middle rope. She’s seated on the middle now, and THERON HOOKS HER ARMS FOR A SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! That was certainly innovative, utilizing the set up for something of a sliding German suplex. But just like that, Kylie got dumped high on her head and neck. Theron shoots the half!

ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHHRRRRRRR-

Persephone: Kickout.

Rich Russillo: Kylie lies on her side, and Theron gets that look in her eyes, ready to wrap this thing up, encouraging Kylie to get to her feet.

James Peters: Grace slowly does, having her back turned towards Theron the entire time. She looks out of it, and probably doesn’t know what’s behind her, having gotten her bell rung off that dragon suplex. Theron ripcords the arm…

Rich Russillo: POWER PUNCH! KYLIE AVOIDED CARPE DIEM WITH THAT SUPERMAN PUNCH! BUT THERON DOESNT GO DOWN, AND REMAINS ON HIS FEET, ALBEIT BARELY! KYLIE FIRES UP, GETTING A SECOND WIND, AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES- RIGHT INTO A SPEAR FROM THERON! Natasha urges him to cover, which he does, having the leg hooked!

ONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEE-

Persephone: Nearfall after nearfall after nearfall.

James Peters: This match feels as if either competitor could put it away at any given time. All it takes is something big, something epic, and this could be over. Theron’s back to his feet, and staggers back in the corner, eyeing Kylie as she gets to all fours. Theron has a dangerous look in his eye, and starts picking up steam. POWER PUNCH! THE POWER PUNCH CAUGHT THERON AGAIN, AND THIS TIME HE GOES DOWN, UNABLE TO KEEP A VERTICAL BASE!

Rich Russillo: KYLIE RUSHES INTO THE COVER, AND HOOKS THE LEG!

ONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHHRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE-

James Peters: 2.999!! THE VERY DEFINITION! Kylie had her hopes up, expecting to have won it there, but Theron still kicked out. Nikolas lies prone on the canvas, meanwhile, Kylie gets up to a knee, having both hands on her head in absolute disbelief. Grace looks around towards the crowd, who’s just in shock as she is. They even thought she had it right there, scoring the biggest victory of her career thus far.

Rich Russillo: But Theron isn’t gonna allow himself to be bested so easily. Speaking of, he’s already stirring on the canvas, and that’s enough to make Kylie reel herself in, and get back to business, knowing she’s gotta plan out her next move.

James Peters: Under pressure, you can thrive, or you can crumble. We’re about to see what Kylie has in store for Theron, who she stands behind, stalking him. This is reminiscent of earlier, Kylie having a threat that looms behind her, however, not knowing it. Theron doesn’t realize what’s behind him either, having his back turned towards Kylie while getting to his feet.

Rich Russillo: Kylie ripcords the arm of Theron, AND POSSIBLY LOOKS FOR CARPE DIEM! BUT NIKOLAS CATCHES HER IN POSITION FOR GHOST’S REQUIEM! WAIT! KYLIE ESCAPES OUT OF IT WITH A SCHOOL GIRL! BUT DOESNT HOLD THE COVER, ROLLING THERON TO A KNEE! SUPERKI- THERON CATCHES THE BOOT, AND SPINS HER AROUND FOR A RIPCORD OF HIS OWN!

James Peters: CARPE DIEM!!! KYLIE GOES DOWN, AND SO DOES THERON, WEAKLY HOOKING HER LEG FOR THE COVER, BOTH COMPETITORS ABSOLUTELY EXHAUSTED! AND IN KYLIE’S CASE, POSSIBLY OUT!

ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!

THHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: HERES YOUR WINNER…THERON NIKOLAS!!

(“Pass The Nirvana” by PTV blares throughout the arena, receiving a raucous reaction from Voltage faithful, proud to have witnessed such a great, back and forth match between the two. Theron shows the effects, slowly getting back to his feet, but with some assistance from Natasha, manages to, and gets his hand raised in victory by the referee.)

Persephone: What a match!

James Peters: That’s the result you get when both competitors put it all on the line, and bring it to the table. Kylie knew how many eyes she’d have on her during this, and showed up.

Rich Russillo: Take nothing away, she stood toe-to-toe with Theron Nikolas, and the girl is only 19. She’s only gonna improve from here, and who knows? May defeat Theron Nikolas one day. But for right now, he proves to us why he’s a top tier competitor on Voltage.

(Theron Nikolas is seen standing inside the ring, still lightly nursing his wounds from the match before he begins to leave the ring. Before he can though, suddenly, the camera swipes upward to show a bird flying through the sky. Theron takes notice of this as well as it makes its way over and lands on one of the turnbuckles. He can only look over at it in confusion, with no clue what’s happening.)

Rich Russillo: Oh hey, look at that, a beautiful bird landed on one of the corners! It seems it wants to watch the action up close.

James Peters: What kind of bird is that? It looks like a raven.

Rich Russillo: Looks like a blackbird to me.

Persephone: Are you two blind- I mean, my fellow commentators, a blackbird doesn’t even look the same as a raven, that bird is clearly a crow!

Rich Russillo: But a crow looks like a raven!

James Peters: Wait, we can argue about this later…did you just say a crow?

(As soon as that was said, people quickly started to realize what that meant and Theron realized it too. He gritted his teeth in anger and put his guard up in preparation, as a crow signaled the appearance of one man…well, one thing. The lights immediately went out and in a few seconds a loud GONG sound could be heard. The entire arena was filled with dark dimmed red lights before all of the sudden…)

James Peters: SAMAEL! HE APPEARED OUT OF NOWHERE AND HIT THERON NIKOLAS RIGHT IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH A STIFF CLOTHESLINE! Theron was attacked where he couldn’t see and now he is on the ground as Samael looks like he isn’t letting up!

Rich Russillo: Samael is attacking Theron while he is down! He’s throwing stiff forearms right at the back of his head in a brutal fashion! Samael is putting all of his force into every strike as if Theron stole his Disney Plus account!

Persephone: What a fitting way to include a Disney related product fellow commentator Rich! But yes, what a horrible display of violence from Samael! I do not approve of this and I am certainly not enjoying watching this, oh, THE HUMANITY! :noah:

James Peters: Natasha Agnello is outside of the ring seeing what is happening right now and she is clearly panicking as Samael is picking apart Theron Nikolas. Samael suddenly pulls up Theron by his hair and he grabs him by his head, wait, he is going for it! R.I.P! SAMAEL DRIVES THERON’S HEAD RIGHT INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING! Is there anybody there that can stop this monster?

Rich Russillo: Can’t Natasha do anything? She is a Soothsayer, no? So can’t she talk down Samael? Or create any magic to stop him?

Persephone: I am absolutely sure that is not how it works, magic doesn’t exist, except in Disneyland, of course!

Rich Russillo: Well, didn’t we just have a haunted doll in the show?

Persephone: Uhhhhhhh…HEY, LOOK! SAMAEL IS DOING EVIL STUFF!

James Peters: Very evil stuff indeed! He is circling Theron while he is still down and out from that swinging reverse STO, he kneels beside him and it is clear what Samael is going to do at this moment, he is going for the Death Row! Samael is close to locking in the Mandible Claw-

(But before Samael can execute it, he is suddenly pulled back by his hand as Samael turns in slight confusion and he sees someone grabbing his hand, it was Kylie Grace!)

James Peters: KYLIE STOPS SAMAEL JUST IN TIME! After she realized what was happening she slid inside of the ring and she was able to grab Samael’s hand in time, and it seems Kylie is…trying to stop Samael?

Kylie Grace: (off-mic) Please, Samael! Stop this, you don’t need to do this!

Rich Russillo: Kylie is actually trying her best to talk Samael down, although Samael dismisses her for a moment and he tries to lock in the Mandible Claw once again!

James Peters: But Kylie holds on even stronger onto his hand and doesn’t let him go for it!

Kylie Grace: (off-mic) I said you don’t need to do it! It isn’t necessary, look at me! I am still here standing, I am fine, I promise.

James Peters: Finally, Samael turns towards Kylie and he seems to…actually listen to her! The lights in the arena slowly start going back to normal as he slowly gets up and he is stopped from locking in the Mandible Claw! Kylie actually did it, she was able to stop Samael!

Rich Russillo: Kylie is a very courageous girl for stepping up to someone like Samael, but…how was she able to talk him down?

Persephone: The power of…magic???

(Kylie lets out a small smile as Samael finally listens to her, she is able to calmly walk out with him out to the ring apron and out of the ring. This gives Natasha and other referees the chance to enter and check on Theron. Just then, while this situation is happening in the ring, the camera fades backstage where Dr. Doyle is seen standing with a hand on his chin, watching what was going down in the monitor. He was very confused and surprised at the same time, it looks like he didn’t expect what happened out there and he was in deep thought for the moment.)

Sofia Clarke: Everything good, Dr. Doyle?

(Dr. Doyle is taken off guard when Sofia appears right next to him, curious about the situation that just happened. He almost jumps in surprise as well seeing the interviewer pop out of nowhere, even though she clearly just walked around the corner.)

Dr. Doyle: Miss Clarke, are you trying to give me a heart attack? Give me a signal first before anything!

Sofia Clarke: Oh! Very sorry doctor!

Dr. Doyle: Didn’t I tell you that it was too much of a risk having to deal with someone like Samael? It isn’t safe that you are looking into this.

Sofia Clarke: Frankly Dr. Doyle, it is your job having to deal with and solve the problem with Samael. But my job as an interviewer is to report what is happening so everyone can know, which is what I’m doing with Samael. Making sure that everything can be safe and knowledgeable about the situation, I may be risking my life apparently, but this is to let the public know.

Dr. Doyle: I…Hm. Sadly, I can’t disagree with your logic. Fine, what do you need?

Sofia Clarke: Awesome then! So, do you know what all of that was about in the ring?

Dr. Doyle: I don’t have an exact answer to that question, I am as clueless as everyone who just watched that. I didn’t know Samael would go out there and do what he did, he is addicted to seeing the blood of people, he doesn’t shy away from using uncontrollable violence. It has been well known that all Samael wants to do is make people suffer, but everything that has happened the past month has shocked me to the core and it has shaken up my entire research on Justin and his personalities. It all has to do with the woman who stopped him right now, and that is Kylie Grace.

(Dr. Doyle reaches into one of the pockets in his jacket and he pulls out a notepad and a pen. He opens the notepad and he shows Sofia various notes that he has about his sessions with Justin and his other personalities, of course, he keeps the other notes confidential and he only shows Sofia the notes he wrote from the last month when Kylie first met Michael.)

Dr. Doyle: After the past month, it doesn’t look like a coincidence to me that Samael attacked Kylie Grace’s opponent tonight, and instead, it looks like he might have attacked Theron Nikolas for Kylie. Maybe he thought Kylie was in danger, maybe he thought she was seriously hurt, but Kylie is the main reason why Samael went out there and attacked Theron. All of this started when one of Justin’s personalities, Michael, first met Kylie. The two of them seemed to grow a bit of a friendship for the past few weeks, but I saw how strong it was first hand when just seeing and hearing her. Kylie was able to push Caine away and make Michael come out, I have never seen something like that happen before in all of my time doing research. Caine is mostly the opposite, it took me off guard seeing him seemingly worry about Kylie dealing with the situation with TLA. But of course, Caine doesn’t seem very fond of her himself after all. I don’t have anything on Justin yet because he hasn’t even met her properly. And finally, Samael…well…you just saw what happened out there.

Dr. Doyle: I can’t seem to find any consistency in all of the personalities, because of that it is very difficult for me to understand why Samael would go out there and attack Theron or what his motives were. I might not have all of the answers right now, but I do promise I am going to do everything I can to figure out what is going on.

Sofia Clarke: I am happy to hear that Dr. Doyle! Thanks for letting me know and informing everyone.

Dr. Doyle: Of course, please stay safe.

(Sofia gives Dr. Doyle a nod in response before she quickly turns the corner and she leaves. A small expression of concern appears on his face before he turns to the monitor once more, he clicks on his pen and begins writing more notes about what just happened while Voltage fades to commercial.)

(Commercial for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, in theaters 2022.)

(Voltage returns to ringside as Bella Braxton can be seen holding a microphone.)

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(‘Sweetest Pie’ by Megan Thee Stallion & Dua Lipa (Sped Up/Tik Tok Version) plays and the crowd right away gives Kenn Kenn a loud ovation. Kenn enters the arena dancing to his music, just oozing confidence while sending the love back to the crowd that they have shown him.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST….FROM ATLANTA, GEORGIA….WEIGHING IN AT 120 POUNDS…”KENDOLL”… KENNNNNN KEEENNNNNN!!!!

James Peters: Someone who we just can never get enough of. You just gotta love that despite how Territorial Invasion ended…he didn’t let it break his spirit. He had the match won and it was practically stolen from him. But momentum can all change for him here tonight.

(Amaya steps into the frame replacing Bella.)

(‘Mo Money’ by Ben McLusky plays as the crowd rains down boos. Ronan comes out looking as smug and cocky as ever, just mocking the fans before smiling making his way to the ring.)

Amaya: AND FROM PALM SPRINGS, FLORIDA….WEIGHING IN AT 285 POUNDS….HE “HAS MORE MONEY THAN YOU”….ROOONNNNNNAAAANNNN MAALLLOOOSSSIIIIIIII!!!!!

Rich Russillo: How delusional is this guy? He was dead weight to his team at Territorial Invasion, got smacked around and eliminated first, then demanded a reward? I seriously don’t get what goes through this guy’s head sometimes.

James Peters: Don’t forget what he did earlier tonight costing Daryl his match. You have to wonder if he has to have eyes in the back of his head here tonight.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

James Peters: And this match is underway. Ronan and Kenn circle the ring…before Ronan…what is he –

(Ronan extends his hand out to Kenn Kenn as Kenn looks around the laughing crowd. It’s safe to say he wasn’t expecting this.)

Ronan Malosi: (off mic) The locker room leader wants to wish you luck!

Crowd, James Peters, Persephone, Rich Russillo, and Kenn Kenn: :comeagain:

Rich Russillo: Kenn won’t fall for this right? Locker room leader? Is this guy serious?

James Peters: After several moments… Kenn reluctantly goes to shake the hand….AND THEN RONAN TAKES A CHEAPSHOT TAKING DOWN KENN KENN! WE ALL KNEW IT! Kenny’s heart I guess was telling him to believe Ronan’s gesture.

Ronan Malosi: (off mic) Take that as a little lesson…don’t trust anybody!

Rich Russillo: Ronan looks to take advantage of that cheapshot and picks Kenn up and then throws him in the corner. Ronan delivers several elbow strikes to the face, before hitting an uppercut to the throat. Ronan grabs ahold of him and then hip tosses him from the corner to the middle of the ring! Ronan soaks in the boos as he picks up Kenn Kenn by the head – BUT KENN SMACKS HIS HANDS AWAY AND THEN DELIVERS AN ENZIGURI KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! Ronan immediately retreats out of the ring as he loses the upper hand.

James Peters: Ronan goes to turn around – BUT KENN GIVES HIM NO TIME TO BREATHE AS HE HITS A TOPE CON HILO!!! KENN IS FEELING ABSOLUTELY FIRED UP AS HE TRIES TO PUMP UP THE CROWD AS WELL! Kenn picks Ronan up and rolls him back inside the ring before he hops up on the apron. Kenn leaps through the second rope and rolls through – AND HITS A TORNADO DDT SPIKING RONAN’S HEAD INTO THE MAT!! AND KENN GOES FOR THE FIRST COVER IN THIS MATCHUP!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

James Peters: Ronan powers out of it! And Kenn Kenn is back up and pretty much begging for Ronan to stand and face him! Ronan is up and turns around to get a kick to the midsection…BUT BEFORE KENN COULD DO ANYTHING, RONAN COUNTERS WITH A BACK BODY DROP! Ronan already looks out of breath surviving that flurry from Kenn, and he pulls himself up and approaches Kenn, AND THEN REPEATEDLY HAMMERS AWAY AT HIS BACK BEFORE PICKING KENN UP, AND THEN LOCKING IN A BEAR HUG TRYING TO SQUEEZE THE LIFE OUT OF HIM!!

Persephone: Ronan is just screaming at him to just give up, but we all know Kenn Kenn won’t do that as he tries to find a way to get out of this. Ronan begins to swing him back and forth, but Kenn continues to fight as he drops several elbows on top of the skull of Ronan…and eventually Ronan is forced to let go of him as both face one another – AND KENN KENN WITH A HIGH KNEE STRIKE ACROSS OF BRIDGE OF THE NOSE THAT DROPS RONAN LIKE A SACK OF POTATOES!!

Rich Russillo: Kenn now delivers repetitive elbow drops to the heart of Ronan before picking him up and setting him up for perhaps a suplex, but Ronan blocks it with his foot before punching away at the ribs of Kenn…AND THEN HE DRIVES KENN BACK FIRST INTO THE CORNER! Shoulder thrust! Another! And another! Ronan now sits him on the top rope before delivering a strike to the throat! Ronan goes up too as well now and he is trying to set Kenn up looking for a avalanche sidewalk slam, but Kenn doesn’t let it happen as he hammers away at the head of Ronan, and now it’s a battle for control as the two of them go back and forth!!

James Peters: And Kenn Kenn looks to have the upper hand as Ronan looks to barely be hanging on…A ROUNDHOUSE KICK FROM KENN AND RONAN IS ABOUT TO FALL! Kenn using his flexibility on that kick, AND THEN LEAPS AND DELIVERS A SUNSET FLIP BOMB FROM THE TOP ROPE AS RONAN LANDS HARD ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!! KENN IMMEDIATELY TRANSITIONS INTO A PIN AFTERWARDS!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Persephone: Ronan kicks out of it! And Kenn wastes no time in running to the corner and ascending up the top rope looking to go high risk. AND SHE GOES FOR A HIGH FROG SPLASH – BUT RONAN GOT HIS KNEES UP AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND! AND NOW RONAN TRANSITIONS AND HE LOCKS IN A CROSSFACE SUBMISSION! Ronan just screaming at the top of his lungs at Kenn to give up, but Kenn looks like he has no intentions of that.

Rich Russillo: Kenn tries to reach out for the bottom rope….AND OUT OF NOWHERE ROLLS THROUGH, BUT IT BACKFIRED AS RONAN STILL HAS IT LOCKED IN, AND HE’S EVEN FARTHER FROM THE ROPES NOW! Ronan again screaming at him to tap, but Kenn tries to get to the ropes once more – AND HE DOES FORCING THE BREAK! The referee steps in forcing Ronan to let go who isn’t too pleased that Kenn got to the rope.

James Peters: And Ronan drags him back to the center of the ring, but Kenn pushes him back with his feet, And Ronan pulls him in going for “Death-Ro!!!!” But Kenn landed on his feet, SUPERKICK TO RONAN, BUT RONAN CAUGHT THE LEG! BUT THEN KENN REVERSES THAT INTO A SPINNING DOUBLE LEG LARIAT! Ronan is a bit rattled as he stumbles back up to his feet, AND KENN WAS WAITING FOR HIM WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, AND HE GOES FOR “WHAT’S ON THE MENU!!” THE AXE KICK!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT HE MISSES AS RONAN MOVED AT THE LAST SECOND, AND RONAN CREATES A BIT OF SEPARATION WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Kenn bounces off the rope and then leaps up and goes for a hurricanrana!! BUT RONAN CATCHES HIM AND PULLS HIS BODY WEIGHT BACK UP! AND HE LOOKS TO SEND KENN INTO THE CORNER WITH A BUCKLE BOMB….BUT KENN REVERSES INTO A HURRICANRANA SENDING RONAN FACE FIRST INTO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE!! Kenn follows that up and runs driving both knees into the back of Ronan’s neck at full speed! Kenn climbs up high again, will the second time be the charm? YES IT WILL AS KENN LANDS ON RONAN WITH A FROG SPLASH! THE HOOK OF THE LEG!!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEE!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!!

Persephone: KICK OUT AGAIN FROM RONAN! Kenn thinks of his next move now, and as Ronan is coming to, Kenn runs off the ropes… AND HE GOES FOR “WHAT’S ON THE MENU?” FOR THE SECOND TIME! AND FOR THE SECOND TIME IT FAILS AS RONAN MOVES BEFORE QUICKLY TAKING KENN OUT WITH A BICYCLE KICK! Ronan falls to the mat trying to catch his breath as he scoots and sits in the corner.

Rich Russillo: Ronan stands himself up in the corner, and then walks up to Kenn, AND THEN LOCKS HIM IN A BEARHUG! It doesn’t last long though because Kenn quickly fights out of it! Kenn runs off of the ropes… BUT RONAN CATCHES HIM AND THIS TIME THE BEARHUG IS IN TIGHT SWINGING HIM BACK AND FORTH!! But Kenn still manages to fight clobbering away at the head of Ronan finally getting him to let go! Kenn looks around before running off the ropes….and Ronan swings but Kenn ducks and then springboards off the opposite second rope… and the springboard dropkick connects!! KENN LOOKS TO KEEP THIS FLURRY GOING AS HE RUNS OFF THE ROPES…AND “WHAT’S ON THE MENU?” FINALLY CONNECTS AFTER A THIRD TRY!! KENN FLIPS HIM OVER AND MAKES THE COVER!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEE!!!

James Peters: BUT RONAN STILL GETS THE SHOULDER UP!! Kenn looks a little disappointed, but only for a second as he looks to go right back on the attack as he picks Ronan slowly up off of the mat. And he pulls him downwards trying to pump up the crowd! “SWALLOW IT!!!” THE SUNSET SPLIT!!

Rich Russillo: BUT BEFORE KENN COULD GET HIS LEG UP, RONAN SPINS OUT OF IT…AND THEN DELIVERS A HARD RIGHT!!! “THE DREAM CRUSHER!! KENN STILL STANDS AND THEN STUMBLES INTO THE ARMS OF RONAN AND RONAN HITS “VERTIGO!!!” THE DEEP SIX AS RONAN GOES FOR THE COVER AND THE VICTORY!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!!

Persephone: BUT KENN STILL STAYS IN IT AND SURVIVES! And Ronan looks to be in absolute disbelief pounding the mat in some frustration that that combo didn’t put Kenn away.

Ronan Malosi: (off mic) THAT WAS THREE!!!

Rich Russillo: It was not though as Ronan finally goes back on the offense – BUT I THINK HE WASTED A BIT TOO MUCH TIME AS KENN SLAPS THE HANDS AWAY AND HITS A ENZIGURI KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD THAT DROPS RONAN TO A KNEE!!! AND THEN ANOTHER ENZIGURI KICK KICK THAT TAKES RONAN DOWN AND NOW BOTH COMPETITORS ARE DOWN AGAIN!

James Peters: Both begin to stir on opposite ends of the ring, AND RONAN CHARGES….BUT KENN COUNTERS WITH A BACK BODY DROP OVER THE TOP ROPE! But Ronan held on to the apron and the exhausted Kenn has no idea. Ronan looks beside him….and he’s climbing the top rope? Come again now? He’s not really a high flyer, AND HE GOES FOR THE CLOTHESLINE OFF THE TOP ROPE!! NOBODY HOME!!! RONAN TOOK A RISK AND HE CRASHES AND BURNS! AND FROM BEHIND…THE CRUCIFIX PIN FROM KENN KENN!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!!

Rich Russillo: DID HE GET HIM?! No, and both of them race to their feet – AND BOTH RUN INTO A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE TAKING EACH OTHER OUT! Now it’s just a matter of who gets to their feet first here.

Persephone: Both of them stand now to face each other – AND A RIGHT HAND FROM RONAN! AND KENN RESPONDS BACK WITH A SHOT OF HIS OWN!! RONAN! KENN! RONAN KENN!! Both exchanging shits before Ronan looks have gotten the upper hand and backs Kenn up against the ropes….AND AN IRISH WHIP INTO THE ROPES, AND KENN SLIDES UNDERNEATH HIS LEGS FACING HIS BACKSIDE!

Kenn Kenn: (tapping Ronan’s shoulder, off mic) Yoo hoo!

Rich Russillo: Ronan turns around and then….A HIGH KNEE STRIKE ACROSS THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE FROM KENN KENN! Kenn playing some mind games there with Ronan and he now looks completely in control…AND HE DROPS DOWN WITH A SUPERKICK! RONAN COULD BE IN SOME VERY DEEP TROUBLE HERE AS KENN KENN GRABS HIS LEGS, AND HE ASKS THE CROWD AS THE CROWD IS DESPERATELY URGING HIM TO LOCK IT IN….AND HE DOES!!! “BOTTOM’S UP”!!! THE FIGURE EIGHT SUBMISSION IS LOCKED IN NOW AS RONAN IS ALMOST IN A PANIC NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO!!

James Peters: Ronan may have no choice on but to tap here and just live to fight another day, but he is still shaking his head no repeatedly! And he looks back and sees the ropes within reach…AND RONAN BEGINS HAMMERING AWAY AT THE KNEECAP OF KENN AND KENN IS UNFORTUNATELY UNABLE TO KEEP THE SUBMISSION LOCKED AS HE FALLS! That may have been pure desperation from Ronan, but it worked and got the job done. Ronan is holding his leg in some pain as he limps up back to his feet using the ropes for some leverage.

Rich Russillo: Ronan faces Kenn’s back as Kenn stands – AND THEN RONAN DELIVERS A BIG BOOT TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD BUYING HIM A FEW SECONDS AS HE HAS REGAINED CONTROL IN THIS MATCH! Ronan is begging for him to stand up again like a predator stalking its prey AND THEN HE GOES FOR “DREAM CRUSHER” FOR A SECOND TIME – AND IT CONNECTS FOR THE SECOND TIME AS RONAN DROPS DOWN ON KENN WITH A COCKY GRIN AND HOOKS THE LEG!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!!

James Peters: ARE YOU KIDDING?! KENN GETS THE SHOULDER UP ONCE MORE! And now this time Ronan us irate because he’s not hit that twice on him in this match. Ronan looks to for sure put this match away and picks up Kenn from the mat….”DEATH- RO!!!”

Rich Russillo: AGAIN KENN LANDS ON HIS FEET…AND THEN HE HITS A REAR VIEW RIGHT TO THE FACE OF RONAN DROPPING HIM DOWN!! Kenn eyes the top rope and approaches the corner and makes his way up top again, and he balances himself in position, and does his signature twerk – “A4D!!!!!” PICTURE PERFECT MOONSAULT AS KENN HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE VICTORY, WHAT A WIN THIS WOULD BE FOR HIM

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!

James Peters: RONAN HAS HIS FOOT UNDER THE ROPE, AND THE REFEREE JUST NOTICED IT IN TIME! Kenn Kenn is in disbelief as we all are thinking that was going to be the dagger in this match. Now what does Kenn do from here? Did he just take his best shot to win this? The one thing he can’t do is get too flustered at this stage in the match.

Rich Russillo: Kenn slowly stands back up using the ropes, and he stalks Kenn from behind – AND GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD, BUT RONAN PUSHES AWAY BEFORE ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN AS HE COLLAPSES BACK TO THE MAT! Ronan is just trying to get some wind back in his body at this point. And Kenn isn’t having it as he approaches Ronan and grabs him by the head once more –

Persephone: BUT I THINK RONAN WAS PLAYING POSSUM AS HE DELIVERS A VICIOUS CLOTHESLINE TAKING OUT KENN!! Ronan shakes the cobwebs out before….Ronan has that grin on his face again as he slowly gets back to his feet, and…Ronan begins to taunt now as the crowd just rains down the boos as Ronan embraces it all. Ummmm, you might wanna keep an eye on your opponent dude?

Ronan Malosi: (off mic) You all boo me because you ain’t me. JEALOUSY!!

Rich Russillo: Uhh….I’m not so sure on how true that claim is, but Ronan obviously feels this match is all his at this point so he’s in no hurry to put this match away just raking his sweet time – BUT NOW IT’S KENN WHO WAS PLAYING POSSUM THIS TIME THANKS TO RONAN’S ARROGANCE AND HE JUMPS UP AND HITS A DDT SPIKING RONAN’S HEAD INTO THE MAT!! Kenn is up and he GRABS Ronan’s legs….HE’S LOOKING TO LOCK “BOTTOM’S UP” IN AGAIN FOR THE SECOND TIME…BUT NO!! RONAN USES HIS FOOT AND SHOVES KENN WITH HIS FEET FACE FIRST INTO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE!! AND-

Ronan Malosi: (off-mic) :krabs:

James Peters: IT’S DARYL KINKADE!!!! DARYL KINKADE SLIDES INTO THE RING WITH A STEEL CHAIR, AND RONAN MALOSI IMMEDIATELY BAILS!!!! DARYL WAS COST HIS MATCH AGAINST USAGI SENSHI EARLIER IN THE NIGHT BY RONAN, AND IT LOOKS LIKE DARYL ISN’T TAKING IT TOO LIGHTLY AS HE LOOKS TO GET A BIT OF PAYBACK!

Rich Russillo: RONAN QUICKLY CLIMBS OVER THE BARRICADE, BUT DARYL IS ABLE TO HOP OVER IT, BEFORE CHASING RONAN THROUGH THE CROWD!!!

(Kenn Kenn slowly pulls himself out from the turnbuckles, looking in confusion at what happened in the past few moments. The referee on the other hand begins to count, as Daryl has yet to touch Ronan meaning the match is still on.)

Referee: ONE!…. TWO!…. THREE!….

James Peters: DARYL IS TRYING TO CATCH RONAN WITH THE CHAIR, BUT RONAN IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO ESCAPE DARYL’S WRATH, EVEN PUSHING OVER FANS’ CHAIRS BEHIND HIM IN AN ATTEMPT TO TRIP DARYL UP!

Referee: FOUR!… FIVE!… SIX!…

Rich Russillo: Kenn Kenn is still in the ring just watching this all play out, and he just shrugs knowing that there’s nothing he can really do about this! Everyone would prefer getting a legitimate victory, but right now Ronan’s own actions are coming back to haunt him!

Referee: SEVEN!… EIGHT!… NINE!…

James Peters: Well it looks like Ronan isn’t gonna make it back into the ring! Ronan has high tailed it out of here, doing his best to get out of harms way which has left Kenn Kenn inside of the ring on his own, reaping the rewards! Daryl Kinkade clearly wants to get some payback, but when it’s all said and done I think costing Ronan this match will be enough for him, for now at least!

Rich Russillo: Yeah, and there’s no point in thinking otherwise at this point. This match is over!

Referee: TEN!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner by countout… KENNN KEENNNN!!!!!

(‘Sweetest Pie’ hits and the crowd cheers, and while Kenn Kenn has his hand raised by the referee, he just looks over to where Daryl and Ronan were, shaking his head as he turns his attention to the fans.)

James Peters: It’s sad to see how this one ended, but who can really be blamed besides Ronan himself? He went and cost Daryl against Usagi Senshi, he had this coming!

Rich Russillo: One could say that he only did that because of what happened earlier tonight, but either way Kenn Kenn just picked up another victory, even if this isn’t the type of win people usually like!

James Peters: We can’t deny that this was a good match up until the ending, too. Both Elitists had a good performance, but in the end Kenn Kenn takes it! Congratulations, Kenn Kenn!

(As Kenn Kenn makes his way out of the ring, Voltage fades from ringside.)

(Sunday Night Voltage fades into the backstage area where Molly Waters is standing in front of the camera with a smile on her face like always ready to start another interview.)

Molly Waters: Hello to everyone watching and tuning in right now, I hope you all have enjoyed the show! Everyone is still reeling from what happened at Territorial Invasion last week and, most importantly, how successful Voltage was at the event. But there was another newsworthy moment that came out of the show regarding TLA being able to get his job back, and well, it’s better I let the woman behind all of it explain herself. So please welcome, Eden Sinclair!

(Loud boos from the crowd can be heard when Molly presents her guest, as Eden Sinclair calmly walks into the shot with a neutral expression on her face. It has been a long week for her and she has been mostly silent about what was revealed at Territorial Invasion. She is clearly not in the best mood, but her expression doesn’t show that.)

Molly Waters: Hi there Eden!

Eden Sinclair: …

Molly Waters: Uh…everything alright? You don’t look very good. :lupe:

Eden Sinclair: What made you arrive at that conclusion, Molly?

Molly Waters: Well, a lot actually!

Eden Sinclair: Just please ask your questions.

Molly Waters: Right, of course! This is probably one of the most obvious questions I’ve asked, but after what happened at Territorial Invasion, where it was revealed that you worked with Drake King to kick TLA out of not just Sunday Night Voltage, but Elite Answers Wrestling as a whole, do you have an explanation for making that kind of decision?

Eden Sinclair: You know what Molly? Yes, I do. It’s because I was simply looking out for what was best for EAW and Disney! Everyone is right on what they saw, I did work with Drake King, and so what? I dare to say that I’m not even going to apologize for doing it! TLA has been a nuisance since the very first day I arrived here in EAW. I told him countless times that he needed to go along with the new rules and this new mindset, because his attitude and practices in his other “businesses” weren’t acceptable in the new EAW. But what did he do? He tried and failed in the worst way possible to clean up his act, he failed to follow orders, he refused to change to conform with the new era of Voltage. During the period when he wasn’t an employee, he literally stormed the show and invaded it with a TANK! I simply saw the opportunity to get rid of someone who was insubordinate, and I took it, and I do not regret a single bit of it. It didn’t work out the way I wanted at the end, as unfortunate as that is. But, I am completely sure that TLA will do something to screw up this second chance that he has. I assure you that Disney will be watching him closely, but…as per Captain Charisma, I have to inform you that I will no longer have a say on anything involving TLA.

(This makes the crowd explode in cheers after hearing what Eden said, she very much tries to ignore that reaction and is trying her best to calm down. She is obviously annoyed about all of what has happened, but she is giving it her all to remain professional.)

Molly Waters: I…see then. There is also as well the factor of who revealed the information and what happened in the match, after all of that, the Ice Aces-

Eden Sinclair: Stop.

(Eden doesn’t waste any time on cutting off Molly after hearing the name of the Ice Aces, it seems her composure didn’t last long, and a crack slowly started to show as a lot of anger could be shown on Eden’s expression.)

Eden Sinclair: I already know where this question is going, so let me give you the answer already. I feel angry, I feel disappointed, and most importantly, I feel betrayed after putting my trust in the Ice Aces. I wanted to help them after the turbulent end they had to their Season 15, there was an air of toxicity around them with the new direction they were taking and I wasn’t letting it happen to them, not when I thought they were actual Disney stars in the making. After all of the research I did on them, I thought they would be the perfect group of Elitists to shine in the new EAW as stars and for Disney to be able to market them that way… but after what happened? When Ayu and Usagi mercilessly attacked me? Right after ARIA showed how much of an underhanded person she turnt out to be? I am appalled by all of this, and I do actually regret believing them in the first place. They are not the Disney reps I thought they were, and they are not going to get away with what they did to me. I am going to make sure of that no matter how much it costs me-

???: It’s going to cost you another kick to the head, that’s for sure.

(Eden’s expression quickly turns to a shocked one after hearing that voice, she turned over and what stood in front of her were all three of the Ice Aces as they were met with cheers from the crowd. Usagi boasts with pride after making that comment as she lets out a very confident grin seeing Eden like that, before speaking up again.)

Usagi Senshi: Really, it is ironic seeing you act like this in front of the camera. Annoyed, angry, nervous, because that is how we felt when we were forced to listen to your orders and fight against someone the three of us respected. You were this close to actually succeeding, I’ll give you that Eden, you focused on the fact that we were willing to do anything to succeed and that is why we were up to doing it in the first place. But, we were able to snap out of it and prevent that from happening, and you failed miserably. You felt failure just like the three of us have many times before, and you are going to continue to feel that way if you go up against the three of us again. Because a few seconds ago you were happily talking trash about us and now that we are here in all of our presence, you shut your mouth. You are pathetic. I want to puke just at the mere sight of you. I can practically gloat as much as I want because we were able to save the job of one of the most beloved Elitists ever, and we foiled your plan to get rid of him.

Ayu Megumi: Can you see that now, Eden? That after everything that happened we are not willing to be your pawns anymore? Your plan failed because nobody was going to let someone like you actually succeed, and despite you working for Disney, all you have shown to do is be immoral and evil! You have manipulated your way into the position you are in right now, you abused the power that you had on everyone who slightly disagreed with you and you acted like a complete bully to those weaker than you. But at the end of the day, what did we do? We stood up against you, and stopped you. We ended up beating you and showing the Ice Aces are not your puppets! Are you actually going to learn your lesson, Eden? Are you going to stop bullying us? Are you going to stop bossing us around? Because no matter what happens, no matter how much you throw us, we are never going to give up and let you succeed!

Eden Sinclair: …

Usagi Senshi: Oh, what now? Cat got your tongue?

Ayu Megumi: Maybe her jaw still hurts from those superkicks?

(Usagi and Ayu are ready to mock Eden even more, but ARIA puts a hand on both of their shoulders and stops them for a moment. She decides to step up in front of them to get right in front of Eden’s face and look at her directly in the eyes.)

ARIA: Look, Eden, you must be having the worst feeling in the world right now, this must be one of the worst moments in your life. Coming all of this way to failure, and frankly, after everything that you have done, I do not feel one single bit of sympathy towards you because, honestly, you brought this all upon yourself. You probably think you were doing this because you thought it was the right thing to do, you believe in Disney’s vision and all of that, but are you proud of what you have done to enforce that? Did you think it was right to force Kylie to apologize publicly and humiliate her verbally for one single misunderstanding? Did you think it was right to force me to breach other people’s privacy for information? Did you think it was right to blame a man for something he didn’t do and fire him for it? Go to those kinds of distances because of a man who is supported by almost everybody, even though there are a lot worse people in this company than him? If you actually wanted to help us, and prove to everyone that this new change for EAW was worth it, then why did you perform morally wrong actions that painted you as the villain? That is why I exposed you, that is why I showed the world your true nature, because what you did was wrong. I am a detective, my job is to help those who can’t help themselves. I fight for justice and for what I believe is right, because if to succeed you need to hurt those around you and destroy their dreams, then that isn’t a way to live for me.

(Eden stays completely silent after hearing from the Ice Aces, she takes it all in for a moment before she finally reaches a conclusion and a smile appears on her face. But it isn’t her usual sweet smile, it is a smile that is filled with pure evil on it, and ARIA is even taken aback for a moment when seeing it.)

Eden Sinclair: So…is that what you decided? Is that how you want to live? Is that the answer you believe is right? Do you want to be the hero that bad? Fine, let’s see what you actually care about, because I just remembered a very important message I need to give you! At Road to Redemption, the Specialists Chamber is making a comeback, and Voltage has their first exclusive Free-Per-View coming up. So at Wicked Games, there will be a qualifying match to enter that Chamber and it is none other than…Usagi versus ARIA versus Ayu in a triple threat for the opportunity!

(The Ice Aces are shocked to the core after hearing that bombshell from Eden. Despite everything, Eden wasn’t letting up and she was forcing them to fight against each other.)

Eden Sinclair: Do not screw with me.

(Eden gives them that last message before that evil smile turns into her usual sweet one and she walks off without saying another word. Usagi is feeling enraged, Ayu is feeling worried, and ARIA is still feeling surprised from that announcement, but the three of them are definitely stewing from it. Molly looks over at the scene and she nervously tries to wrap things up.)

Molly Waters: Well…uh, that has been Eden Sinclair folks! We will be back after commercials with another interview for all of you, see you!

(Molly rapidly waves goodbye to the camera before Voltage fades to commercial break.)

( Commercial for Netflix’s new special Dahmer. Before the trailer can play, the commercial is cut immediately because absolutely nothing about Dahmer is appropriate for children. )

( Voltage fades back in from break and cuts down to the broadcast booth. James and Rich are ready to talk, while Persephone is understandably bored and scrolling through her social media feed. James takes a look over at her and clears his throat, obviously getting Persephone’s attention. She shoots him a dirty look before flashing a very fake smile into the camera. )

Persephone: Welcome back to the greatest show on Earth!

Rich Russillo: :wow: I appreciate your enthusiasm, Seph.

James Peters: Or sarcasm. Either way, welcome back to Voltage. We were expecting to be airing Sofia Clark’s sit-down interview with Hikari Kanno right now, but needless to say, things didn’t go as planned earlier today when the two of them sat down.

Rich Russillo: An unexpected guest showed up and well, let’s take a look at how things unfolded.

( The scene fades away from the announce table and cuts to footage from earlier today. )

[ SCREEN BAR – EARLIER TODAY ]

( The scene opens up in the stands of the Salle Mohamed V Sporting Arena. In the middle sits Voltage backstage correspondent, Sofia Clark. She is joined by one-third of the winning Anarchy in the Arena team, the former Unified Tag Team Champion, Hikari Kanno. The two women appear to be making small talk until it is time to get down to business. With the camera focus just on them, Sofia begins to talk. )

Sofia Clark: Last weekend at Territorial Invasion, Voltage, as a brand, made a huge statement at the expense of Showdown and Dynasty. Not only did Voltage manage to secure the three-peat with Brand Warfare, they picked up a huge win in the main event as well. The team of Drake King, the EAW Champion Minerva, and my guest today, Hikari Kanno, were able to win the first ever Anarchy in the Arena match, although it wasn’t without a little bit of drama.

( At the mention of ‘drama’, Hikari cracks a smile. Sofia turns to her and gets right down to business. )

Sofia Clark: The drama I’m speaking about is the action you and Minerva took against Drake King after it was revealed he was working with Eden Sinclair to get rid of TLA.

Hikari Kanno: Drama isn’t the correct term in this instance, Sofia. Drake King set me up to lose and every action has a consequence, whether it’s good or bad. I can speak on this because it wasn’t that long ago I tossed my own tag team partner to the side to focus on my solo endeavors, and I have been reaping the consequences of that action ever since. While I wouldn’t go as far as saying I regret cutting the legs out from under Miku, things certainly haven’t gone how I’ve hoped since Grand Rampage. I assumed the Iconic Cup would be my crowning moment. My actions and my belief in myself as the future of EAW would finally be rewarded with a near guaranteed Universal Women’s Championship reign. Obviously the outcome wasn’t what I had hoped and it left me wondering if my sacrifices were all going to be in vain. While my match with Ghost Perv was cut from Midsummer Massacre, I was still able to prevail when it mattered and that was a win I expected to get and needed, truth be told. Things were finally looking up, or so I thought. Rise of the Resistance was frustrating, and I’m not happy whatsoever knowing it was my own tag team partner who had a hand in making sure something ridiculous happened.

Sofia Clark: To be fair, Drake King has a history of doing underhanded, shady things. You knew going into this partnership with him that he wasn’t to be trusted.

Hikari Kanno: The same thing could be said about me, and Drake had the balls to bring that up when I approached him about joining the Anarchy in the Arena team.

Sofia Clark: A lot of people questioned your decision to work with Drake.

Hikari Kanno: Of course they did because everyone wants to be a professional wrestling analyst. I wanted to be in the main event of Territorial Invasion and more than that, I wanted to win it. Minerva and I nearly accomplished that on our own, without Drake, but he found his way into the match despite our best efforts to keep him at bay. At the end of the day, our team walked out of London with a win, and I got what I wanted, which was a major win in a free-per-view main event.

Sofia Clark: Voltage’s next marquee event is none other than Wicked Games, which will take place on November 6th. What are you hoping to be involved in?

( A thoughtful look crosses Hikari’s face. )

Hikari Kanno: I’ve thought about this. Captain Charisma is a generous commissioner and made sure to let Minerva, Drake, and myself know that we will be compensated for bringing Voltage the victory at Territorial Inva-

( Sofia lets out a startled cry as Hikari is knocked from her seat by a blow to the skull. Sofia scurries out of the way as Sierra Everett leaps over the seats, drops down, and begins to slam her fist into Hikari’s face! The camera zooms in on the assault and it’s clear that Sierra has a pair of diamond studded brass knuckles on as she continues to wail away on Hikari. Once she’s busted open the former champion, and the blood is blurred out, Sierra gets up and hauls Hikari up by the hair. Hikari is completely out of it, and Sierra drags her out of the row of seats and into the aisle. Hikari is unable to fight back and there’s a look of pure satisfaction across Sierra’s face. )

( However, Sierra is not done. )

( ‘The Crown Jewel’ picks up Hikari’s deadweight and hoists her into the powerbomb position. She slams Hikari across the metal handrails, hangs on to her, and slams her down across the steps. Hikari hits the ground with an emphatic thud and to add insult to injury, Sierra drags her up by the hair and throws Hikari down the stairs! Hikari tumbles down the stairs, landing hard at the bottom. Sierra takes a moment to admire the damage she has done as she fluffs out her platinum locks. She looks around, her eyes finally settling on a stunned Sofia Clark and she motions for her to come to her. )

Sierra Everett: Sofia! Over here please! Your interviewee has arrived!

( Sofia trepidly heads towards Sierra, who has her hands on her hips. )

Sofia Clark: With all due respect, Sierra, this is not your interview time.

Sierra Everett: It’s not really Hikari’s anymore, now is it? Instead of talking about an Anarchy in the Arena match that no one cares about because ‘The Crown Jewel’ wasn’t involved, how about we talk about the best match of the entire event? Let’s talk about how I put on an absolute wrestling clinic and destroyed Diamond Dixon, ridding her from this place, and leaving absolutely no doubt who the clear jewel of this industry is.

Sofia Clark: I think Kassidy Heart over on Showdown would beg to differ about that.

Sierra Everett: Pfff. Give me a break. One superkick to the head and that girl is done for. She’s already the poster child for CTE anyways. Besides, we’re not about to waste my precious time talking about someone who is completely irrelevant to this company. What we are gunna do is talk about me and my next move seeing as how Diamond Dixon is gone for good. So go ahead, Sofia. Ask me about what’s next. I know the world is dying to know what I’ve set my sights on.

( To her credit, Sofia refrains from rolling her eyes. )

Sofia Clark: What’s next for you Sierra after your commanding performance at Territorial Invasion?

Sierra Everett: Ohmygosh! Thank you SO MUCH for asking. From day one I said I was going to take Elite Answers Wrestling by storm and seeing how easy it was for me to get rid of Diamond Dixon, I think I’m just going to run roughshod over the entire women’s division until I get myself a Universal Women’s Championship shot! It’s obvious that every other belt is below me, and truthfully, seeing as how the woman I just destroyed is someone who could be considered a future challenger for that belt, I don’t see a whole lot of competition that is going to be standing in my way. I plan to destroy and get rid of every single woman on Voltage just because I can and have that capability and once I’m done doing that, I’m going to take that title for myself. My descent to the top of this company is going to be one of the fastest rising ever in history and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop me.

( Sierra looks down at Hikari, who is being tended to by the security and medical officials that Sofia had called for. )

Sierra Everett: And if they do, all they have to do is reference what just happened to Hikari to see what fate has in store for them.

( With a flick of her hair, Sierra takes a bow. She’s clearly pleased with herself for not only injuring Diamond, but possibly injuring Hikari too. Sofia Clark doesn’t bother to hide her disgust as Sierra walks out of the scene and then she rushes down the stairs to check on Hikari. )

( The scene fades out and returns to the broadcast booth. )

James Peters: We’ve been told that Hikari Kanno was taken to a local medical facility to be checked out, but she was able to walk with assistance from our medical team. Coming off the heels of a huge win like Anarchy in the Arena, I doubt Hikari thought she would be the victim of such a violent attack.

Rich Russillo: Despite only being here for a short time, Sierra Everett has already proven herself to be a force to be reckoned with. What she did to Hikari was absolutely heinous. Hikari isn’t the type of woman to take something like that and just let it pass. Sierra is going to have to answer for her actions.

Persephone: :drakelike: I hope it’s in the most bloody and violent way too!

James Peters: Uhhhh Seph… please keep in mind that Disney doesn’t condone unnecessary violence.

Persephone: 😃 I hope it’s in the most peaceful and happy way too!

Rich Russillo: And on that note, we’re going to take our final commercial break of the evening. When we come back, TLA and Charlie Marr go to war in the main event! Stick around folks!

( Voltage fades to a commercial break. )

(A commercial is shown for Hot Topic starring Sierra Bradford. Want to make it look like you have a grudge against everyone? They got just the look for you; the edgiest clothes for the edgiest people.)

(Voltage returns from break, and Bella Braxton is seen with a microphone in her hand.)

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SET FOR!!!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

Bella Braxton: AND IT IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING!!

(‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ by Tupac hits, as the crowd instantly begins to cheer at the top of their lungs. After a moment, TLA pulls up onto the stage in his low rider bumping that Tupac for the whole world to hear!! He exits out of the vehicle, then turns around and climbs up on top of it to truly embrace this crowd. He then hops off of the vehicle, and looks pumped on his way down the entrance ramp and towards the ring.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first.. From THE POON PALACE IN MIAMI, FLORIDA!! Weighing 210lbs!!!! LA PANTERA SEXUAL!! TLA!!!!!!!!

Rich Russillo: And here comes the poster boy for Wicked Games this November!!

James Peters: Him and Drake share their second Wicked Games Poster cover together, and that’s one of the things that upsets his opponent Charlie Marr. There were quite a few things being said between these two this week, but it sounds like the recognition and praise that TLA gets is what pisses Marr off the most.

Rich Russillo: And to think that if TLA lost at Territorial Invasion, he would have been terminated from this company and that poster wouldn’t even be a thing.

James Peters: Well, whether Marr likes TLA’s face on the poster or not, he might have to deal with seeing it over and over again, because these fans love TLA.. And from the looks of it, he might be here 5EVER!!!!!

(’Praise the Lord’ by Bandokay hits, as The crowd instantly begins to boo. This reaction roars throughout the arena, as we see Charlie Marr stepping out onto the stage with the EAW Hardcore Championship strapped around his waist. Marr looks fierce and ready to go, as he makes his way down the entrance ramp, and towards the ring.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent.. From Tower Hamlets, London, United Kingdom!! Weighing in at 240lbs!!! He is THE MAN OF ALWAYS!!! YOUR HARDCORE CHAMPION!!! CHARLIE MARR!!!

James Peters: Here comes the captain of Team Voltage’s Brand Warfare team this past weekend. Marr helped lead Voltage to victory. He helped be the connecting piece for his team, and ultimately, it helped Voltage attain the three pete for that match.

Persephone: Yeah, but he’s been complaining about not getting recognition for his efforts, and getting over shadowed by Dr. Bethany Blue.

Rich Russillo: But hey. He can use that built up frustration against TLA here tonight!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Rich Russillo: There’s the bell, and this match is underway! Both TLA and Charlie Marr begin to step towards each other, as they meet in the center of the ring. There is no doubt that this match is about to be an all out battle ESPECIALLY after the back and forth these two had throughout the week.

James Peters: There’s definitely a lot of built up tension between these two, and we’re about to witness it all unleash in that ring. Both competitors stare into each other’s eyes like daggers. Fierce as ever, these two look like they’re ready to throw down!!

Rich Russillo: Wait! TLA is backing up! He has his hand extended out, gesturing to Charlie and telling him to hold on!

James Peters: And it doesn’t look like Charlie is amused by this. He’s confused and actually aggravated at the fact that TLA is backing away.

Persephone: But look guys! TLA is reaching into the back waistband of his attire and pulls out a large piece of paper that’s all rolled up. He unrolls it in front of this sold out crowd, and..

Rich Russillo: IT’S THE 2023 WICKED GAMES POSTER!!! TLA HAS THE WICKED GAMES POSTER WITH HIM AND HE… HE EXTENDS HIS ARMS OUT TO PRESENT IT TO CHARLIE MARR!!

James Peters: The look on Marr’s face tells us that he’s furious about this gesture from TLA. He looks at the poster, then back at TLA.

Rich Russillo: And look at TLA just mocking the Hardcore champion, as he releases one hand from the poster to point at his face, then back at the poster. TLA continues to go back and forth pointing at the poster then back at himself, all while he looks right at Charlie Marr with a bright smile face!!

Persephone: AND CHARLIE MARR SNATCHES THE POSTER FROM OUT OF TLA’S HANDS AND BEGINS TO WRIP THE POSTER UP!!! HOW CAN ANYONE DESPISE AN EAW POSTER SO MUCH?

Rich Russillo: HE JUST TOSSED THE SHREDDED PAPER INTO TLA’S FACE, THEN CHARGES RIGHT AT TLA WITH NUMEROUS STRIKES TOWARDS THE UPPER BODY!!

James Peters: TLA gets his guard up, as he manages to block some of these consecutive strikes from Charlie Marr! However, Charlie ends up collar tying the back of TLA’s neck, then drives a brutal knee strike that lands right into the abdomen of TLA!!! That knee definitely knocked the wind out of TLA, but that doesn’t stop Marr from delivering another knee to the stomach!!!

Persephone: Charlie Marr hangs heavy on that collar tie, and uses it to shove TLA across the ring and towards the ropes at the far end! TLA hits the ropes, and rebounds back towards Charlie Marr!! BIG BOOT BY MARR!!!

Rich Russillo: NO!! TLA with a running combat roll to evade the big boot from Charlie! TLA pops back to his feet, as he now stands behind Marr! Marr turns around..

Persephone: CARTEL KICK!!! TLA GOES FOR HIS SIGNATURE PELE KICK!!!

James Peters: BUT CHARLIE MARR SLAPS TLA’S BOOTS AWAY, AS TLA CRASHES DOWN TO THE MAT!!!

Rich Russillo: TLA instantly gets back up to his feet, and faces Charlie Marr… BUT CHARLIE WITH A MONSTROUS HEADBUTT THAT COLLIDES WITH TLA’S HEAD, AND BLASTS HIM ACROSS THE RING, SENDING HIM INTO A SEATED POSITION NEAR THE CORNER!!

James Peters: TLA scoots towards the turnbuckles, then reaches up to grab the ropes and pull himself up to his feet. The Mexican Warrior rubs his forehead in pain after taking that headutt.. BUT HE BETTER GET OUT OF THE WAY, BECAUSE IT’S CHARLIE WITH A RUNNING LARIAT IN THE CORNER!!!

Rich Russillo: NO!! TLA CATCHES MARR WITH A BACK ELBOW THAT HAS THE MAN OF ALWAYS STAGGERING BACK!! Marr clutches at his jaw, then looks up at TLA who is already scaling up the turnbuckles!

James Peters: BUT LOOK!! IT’S MARR WHO RUSHES IN TOWARDS TLA WHO IS ALMOST AT THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, AND.. HIGH RISE DROPKICK!!! MARR JUST GOT INSANE ELEVATION AND DROPKICKED TLA RIGHT IN THE BACK!! THAT DROPKICK NEARLY SHOVES TLA OVER THE TOP ROPE, HOWEVER, TLA GRABS ONTO THE CORNER POST AND TOP TURNBUCKLE PADDING TO PREVENT HIMSELF FROM FALLING ALL THE WAY OVER!!

Persephone: AND WHAT’S THIS?! CHARLIE GETS HIMSELF IN POSITION RIGHT UNDERNEATH TLA!! HE HOOKS AROUND HIS LEGS AND LIFTS TLA HIGH IN THE AIR!!! FALLING POWERBOMB BY CHARLIE MARR CONNECTS, AND TLA INSTANTLY CLUTCHES AT THE BACK OF HIS HEAD IN PAIN!!

James Peters: Did you see the elevation on that powerbomb?! Charlie Marr put a lot into that one, and TLA felt ALL of it!!

Rich Russillo: TLA slowly turns onto his hands and knees, and attempts to work himself up to his feet.. BUT MARR DELIVERS A POWERFUL KICK TO THE STOMACH, THAT DROPS TLA FLAT AGAINST THE MAT!!!

James Peters: That one definitely had to sting. TLA is breathing heavily, and holding onto his abdomen. Meanwhile, it’s Marr who reaches down and grabs the Mexican Warrior!! TLA is then brought up to his feet and put into a front face lock!! What is Marr thinking here?! SNAP SUPLEX!!!!!

Persephone: NO!!! INCREDIBLE ATHLETICISM BY TLA, AS HE POPS OUT OF THAT SUPLEX, AND ROTATES IN MID AIR TO LAND ON HIS FEET BEHIND MARR!!!

Rich Russillo: DROPKICK TO THE BACK BY TLA!!! THAT DROPKICK SHOVES CHARLIE MARR FORWARD AND.. INTO A KNEELING POSITION AGAINST THE ROPES!! MARR’S HEAD AND ARMS ARE HANGING OVER THE MIDDLE ROPES, AND THAT HAS TLA AMPED UP!!!

James Peters: We know what’s coming next!!! TLA rushing in towards Marr!! 3!!!! 0!!!!! 5!!!!! THAT’S THE TIGER FEINT KICK BY TLA!!!!!

Rich Russillo: NO!!! MARR CATCHES TLA’S BODY WHILE THE MEXICAN WARRIOR WAS TRYING TO DELIVER THE KICK!!! Marr has his arms wrapped around TLA’s waist, and uses his strength to rise up to his feet!!!

Persephone: BUT LOOK AT TLA!! He’s keeping his grip on the middle ropes!!! Marr tries to pull TLA away from the ropes and towards the center of the ring, but TLA isn’t letting go!!!

Rich Russillo: Marr continues tugging and pulling!! Tugging and pulling!!! AND TLA RELEASES HIS GRIP!! HE COULDN’T HANG ONTO THE ROPES, AND… THE HEADMASTER RITUAL!!! SPINEBUSTER BY CHARLIE MARR!!!!!!

James Peters: WHAT A MOVE BY MARR, AS THE SOUND OF TLA’S BODY ERUPTS THROUGHOUT THIS ENTIRE ARENA!!!

Rich Russillo: He surely hit that move with a ton of force. And it looks like he’s trying to put this one away, as he covers TLA for the pin!!

ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TH-

Rich Russillo: KICKOUT BY TLA!!

Persephone: Yes! Even more wrestling for us to call before this show ends and I can go home!!

James Peters: Charlie Marr rises up to his feet, and grabs TLA by the head. He pulls TLA up to his knees, then..

Rich Russillo: RIGHT HAND TO THE ABDOMEN BY TLA!!! NOW A LEFT HAND!! RIGHT!! LEFT!! RIGHT!! LEFT!!! TLA HAS FOUND THE FIGHT IN HIM AND IS BLASTING CHARLIE MARR WITH THESE STRIKES!!!

James Peters: Marr hunches over after getting his so many times, but he keeps hold of TLA’s head, and.. HE PULLS IT IN AND BASHES HIS SKULL AGAINST THE HEAD OF TLA!!!! TLA INSTANTLY DROPS BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS, AS MARR STUMBLES HIS WAY OVER TO THE SIDE ROPES, AND USES THEM TO KEEP HIS BALANCE!!

Rich Russillo: That headbutt was powerful! No doubt about that, but you can’t help but notice how much it affected Charlie as well! He’s up against the ropes and shaking his head vigorously in order to shake out the stars he’s seeing right now!! That headbutt really is a double edged sword!!

Persephone: Marr clutches at his head with his left hand, as he uses his right to hold onto the side ropes on his walk towards the corner! Meanwhile, TLA is still down on the canvas, and covers his face from any further damage for the moment. He’s breathing heavily, but he knows he needs to work back up to his feet soon!

James Peters: Charlie now climbs up to the top rope. He’s looking down at TLA, and gets himself in position… TLA then stands up to his feet, and turns his head, as he sees the Hardcore Champion waiting for him!!!

Rich Russillo: DEATH OR GLORY!!! THAT’S THE DIVING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT BY CHARLIE MARR!!!!!

Persephone: AND IT MISSES!!! TLA SPUN OUT OF THE WAY, AS CHARLIE CRASHED SHOULDER FIRST ONTO THE RING MAT!!!

Rich Russillo: Marr is clutching at his shoulder in pain. He slowly sits up, then gradually gets himself up to his feet. Marr then turns around…

James Peters: VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT BY TLA!!! THAT EUROPEAN UPPERCUT JUST SNAPPED THE HARDCORE CHAMPION’S HEAD ALL THE WAY BACK!! Marr is stunned, as he takes a few unbalanced steps back before.. DROPPING DOWN INTO A SEATED POSITION IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!!!

Rich Russillo: AND TLA RUSHES IN AND BLASTS MARR IN THE CHEST LIKE HE WAS PUNTING A SOCCER BALL ACROSS THE FIELD!!!

Persephone: That was a powerful kick, and Charlie’s chest is beat red!!! He remains seated in the ring until.. TLA DELIVERS ANOTHER KICK!!! THIS ONE IS TO THE BACK OF CHARLIE MARR, AND CHARLIE INSTANTLY FALLS BACK AGAINST THE RING MAT!! HE’S ARCHING HIS BACK AND TRYING TO RELIEVE SOME OF THE PAIN!!!

James Peters: TLA now makes his way over to the corner, and scales his way up to the top rope!! He sets his feet, and looks down at Charlie Marr who is still flat on the ring mat!!! TLA LEAPS INTO THE AIR!!!!! 420!!!!!!! SHOOTING STAR PRESS BY TLA!!!!

Rich Russillo: NO!!! MARR ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY, HOWEVER, TLA LANDS ON HIS FEET!!! He looks over his shoulder and sees the Hardcore Champion on the ground!! STANDING MOONSAULT BY TLA!!!!

Persephone: BUT CHARLIE GETS HIS KNEES UP!!! TLA CRASHES CHEST FIRST INTO THEM, AND ROLLS OFF TO THE SIDE BY THE SIDE ROPES!!

James Peters: Two counters in a row by Charlie Marr there. Staying locked in on this match, and not allowing TLA to get a roll! Marr clutches at his lower back, and slowly gets to his feet. He begins to step towards TLA until… HE STOMPS DOWN ONTO THE BADDEST HOMBRE ON THE PLANET!!! ANOTHER STOMP!! ANOTHER!!! AND ANOTHER!!! Charlie now grabs the top rope.. AND HE PULLS ON IT FOR LEVERAGE AS HE PINS TLA’S FACE INTO THE RING MAT!!!!

Referee: One.. Two.. Three.. Four.. Fi-

Rich Russillo: And Charlie Marr releases his foot from off of TLA’s head! He backs away with his arms in the air, as he acts as if he had no idea that he was breaking the rules. Meanwhile, TLA rolls under the bottom rope and out on the ring apron. He reaches up, and grabs the ropes to pull himself up into a seated position. From there, TLA gets up, and works his way into the ring..

James Peters: BUT THE HARDCORE CHAMPION SEES THIS, AND BLASTS TLA IN THE FACE WITH A KNEE!!! TLA’S BODY IS LIMP, AS HIS UPPER BODY HANGS OVER THE ROPES ABOVE THE MAT, AND HIS LOWER BODY HOVERS OVER THE OUTSIDE!!

Persephone: Charlie Marr now grabs TLA by the head, and pulls him back so that its his boots that hang on the middle ropes… THE LAST JUDGEMENT!!!! ROPE HUNG DDT BY CHARLIE MARR CONNECTS, AND TLA’S HEAD IS DRILLED INTO THE RING MAT!!!

James Peters: WHAT A MOVE BY MARR!! He turns TLA over and goes for the pin here!!!

ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

THHHHHHHHHHHRRRRR-

Rich Russillo: KICKOUT BY TLA!!!!

James Peters: Marr slams his fist up against the ring mat, then looks over at TLA who is rolling over towards the side ropes. The Hardcore Champion rises up to his feet, as TLA grabs the ropes and uses them to pull himself up to his feet..

Rich Russillo: CHARING CROSS!!! DISCUS LARIAT BY CHARLIE MARR!!!!

Persephone: NO!! TLA DUCKED THE ARM!!

James Peters: NOT ONLY THAT, BUT HE GRABBED A HOLD OF THE TOP ROPE TOO, AND PULLED IT DOWN!!! MARR SPUN, LOST HIS BALANCE, AND FELL OVER THE TOP ROPE AND DOWN ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!! WHAT A COUNTER BY TLA!!!!

Rich Russillo: TLA is down on the ring mat, and looks directly at Marr who is down on the ringside floor.

James Peters: There’s no doubt that Marr is hurting after that landing moments ago. He’s holding his lower back, and slowly getting himself up to his feet.

Rich Russillo: AND LOOK INSIDE THE RING!!! IT’S TLA WHO IS FLYING ACROSS THE RING!! HE HITS THE FAR ROPES, THEN REBOUNDS BACK TOWARDS MARR!!!

Persephone: SUICIDE DIVE!!!! TLA LEAPED OVER THE TOP ROPE AND COLLIDED WITH CHARLIE MARR WHO HAD JUST GOTTEN UP TO HIS FEET!!! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN!!!

James Peters: Both TLA and Charlie Marr lay on the ground here at ringside. They’ve gone through an absolute war against each other and are still showing no signs of letting up.

Rich Russillo: Perfectly put James. While we watch these guys struggle to work up to their feet here on the outside, we simply can’t ignore how they have gotten to this point.

James Peters: Counters, signatures, big move after big move. These guys have been putting on a clinic, and it’s taking its toll on their bodies. However, like you said.. These guys are true warriors, and showing no signs of letting up!!

Referee: One.. Two.. Three.. Four..

Rich Russillo: We are at a count of four here, and it looks like both guys have managed to get up to their hands and knees. They continue working up until they get to their feet..

James Peters: RIGHT HOOK BY CHARLIE MARR!! He put a lot of power into that one, and even got the Mexican Warrior to take a step back..

Persephone: BUT TLA RESPONDS WITH A RIGHT HOOK OF HIS OWN!!! Marr now staggers back after that shot.. BUT AFTER A MOMENT, CHARLIE STEPS TOWARDS TLA AND DELIVERS A STRONG LEFT HANDED PUNCH TOWARDS THE TEMPLE OF TLA’S HEAD!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT LOOK AT TLA!!! RIGHT HOOK!! LEFT UPPERCUT!! THEY CONNECT AND STAGGER MARR BACK!! BUT CHARLIE ISN’T LETTING IT BE THAT EASY, AS HE THROWS A RIGHT HOOK TOWARDS TLA’S FACE!!!

James Peters: BUT TLA DUCKS THE ARM, THEN POPS UP TO DELIVER A STRAIGHT JAB TO THE FACE OF MARR!!!!

Persephone: Marr is just getting tagged here!! But he goes for another hook!!! This time it’s from the left hand!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT TLA DUCKS UNDER THAT ONE TOO, THEN POPS UP TO CONNECT TWO QUICK JABS TO THE FACE, AND FOLLOWS THOSE UP WITH ANOTHER RIGHT HOOK!!

James Peters: Charlie has to be seeing stars right now!! He looks dizzy and out of balance..

Rich Russillo: AND THAT LEAVES TLA AN OPENING, AS HE LEAPS UP, AND.. HURRICANRANA!!!! HURRICANRANA BY TLA CONNECTS, AS HE SENDS CHARLIE MARR DOWN TO THE THINLY PADDED RINGSIDE FLOOR!!!!

James Peters: TLA GETS DOWN ONTO A KNEE AND EMBRACES THIS CHEERING CROWD!!!

Referee: Five.. Six.. Seven..

Persephone: TLA now looks over his shoulder, and sees Marr trying to get up to his feet.

Rich Russilo: But it looks like TLA doesn’t like that, as he gets up and makes his way over to Charlie so that he can grab him and bring him up to his feet himself!!! TLA has Marr by the back of the head and tosses back into the ring under the bottom rope.

James Peters: TLA now makes his way up onto the ring apron, and stares at Marr who is laying right beside the ring ropes! The Mexican Warrior pulls back on the top rope, and.. SPRINGBOARD SPLASH!!!!

Persephone: IT CONNECTS, AND TLA STAYS COVERING MARR WITH THE HOPES OF PUTTING THIS ONE AWAY!!!!

ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

THHHHHHHHHHH-

Rich Russillo: BUT THE HARDCORE CHAMPION GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!!!

James Peters: TLA nearly got the pinfall right there, but it wasn’t enough to put Marr away!!

Rich Russillo: The Lucha Thug gets to his feet, and reaches down to grab Charlie from off of the mat. He gets a hold of Marr’s arm once he’s to his feet, and whips him across the ring and over to the corner!!

James Peters: Marr hits the corner turnbuckle hard, then turns around and.. HE BEGINS TO RIP THE TURNBUCKLE PADDING OFF!!! The pad is completely off, but from behind… IT’S TLA CHARGING RIGHT AT THE HARDCORE CHAMPION!!!

Persephone: BUT CHARLIE SIDE STEPS OUT OF THE WAY, AS TLA NEARLY COLLIDES WITH EXPOSED TURNBUCKLE!! LUCKILY HE GOT HIS BOOT UP AND CAUGHT HIMSELF AGAINST THOSE CORNER ROPES!!

Rich Russillo: TLA looks at the exposed turnbuckle in shock, as he knows that would have been bad if he ran into it.

James Peters: BUT FROM BEHIND!!! IT’S CHARLIE MARR WHO LOCKS IN A REAR NAKED CHOKE HOLD!! THAT’S TRANQUILITY!!

Rich Russillo: HE’S PULLING BACK ON TLA’S HEAD!!! WRENCHING AWAY AND TRYING TO SUFFOCATE HIM!! TLA IS GASPING FOR AIR!! HE’S REACHING OUT!! HE’S TRYING TO BREAK THIS HOLD WITH A ROPE BREAK!!!

Persephone: BUT MARR PULLS BACK AND BRINGS BOTH OF THEM DOWN TO THE RING MAT!!! TLA’S ARMS REMAIN EXTENDED OUT WITH THE HOPES OF GRABBING A ROPE!!!

James Peters: BUT THAT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE IT’S HAPPENING, AS CHARLIE SCOOTS THEM CLOSER TO THE CENTER OF THE RING!!!

Rich Russillo: The referee is getting a close look at TLA!! He’s checking to see if he’s going to have to call this match!!… But TLA is showing some fight!!! He’s now attacking the hands, as he tries to peel Marr’s grip from off of him!!

James Peters: AND HE DOES!! TLA BREAKS THE GRIP!!!

Persephone: BUT MARR WITH AN ELBOW RIGHT TO THE TOP OF TLA’S HEAD!!! ANOTHER!! AND ANOTHER!!! Marr shoves TLA off to the side, as he slowly rises up to his feet!

James Peters: The referee backs up, and notices the exposed turnbuckle! He’s clueless about what happened to the padding, as he tries to repair it!!

Rich Russillo: Meanwhile, Charlie reaches down, and brings TLA up to his feet! He gets him in a front face lock and attempts to take him over with a snap suplex!!

Persephone: BUT LOOK! TLA HOOKS HIS LEGS AROUND MARR’S TO PREVENT THE SUPLEX!!

James Peters: Marr releases his grip on TLA.. BUT INSTANTLY GETS SHOVED BACK BY THE MEXICAN WARRIOR!!!

Rich Russillo: This pisses Marr off, as he steps back towards TLA..

Persephone: VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT!! TLA JUST SNAPPED THE HARDCORE CHAMPION’S HEAD BACK!!!

Rich Russillo: Marr is seeing stars, but he desperately fires back with an unbalanced right hook to the face!!

James Peters: NO!! TLA DUCKS THE ARM AND TAGS MARR WITH A RIGHT JAB!!! NOW A LEFT!! RIGHT!! LEFT!! RIGHT!! LEFT!! RIGHT!! LEFT!! THESE JAB COMBOS ARE COMING OUT AS FAST AS THE SPEED OF A BULLET!! TLA IS PUTTING IN WORK RIGHT HERE!!!

Persephone: AND NOW A RIGHT HOOK BY TLA!!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT MARR BLOCKS IT WITH HIS ARM!!! The Hardcore Champion keeps TLA’s arm hooked with his right arm, then raises his left arm up to.. POKE TLA IN THE EYES!!! MARR JUST BLINDED TLA JUST NOW, AND TLA IS CLUTCHING AT HIS FACE IN PAIN!!!

James Peters: AND LOOK!! CHARLIE MARR DROPS DOWN AND.. LOW BLOW!!! HE JUST DELIVERED THE HARDEST LOW BLOW I HAVE EVER SEEN, AND TLA COULDN’T DEFEND AGAINST IT OR BRACE HIMSELF BECAUSE HE’S BLIND RIGHT NOW!!!

Rich Russillo: BUT LOOK!!! THE REFEREE!! HE HAD JUST FINISHED PUTTING THE TURNBUCKLE PADDING BACK ON, AND TURNED AROUND JUST IN TIME TO SEE THE ENTIRE THING!!! TLA IS DOWN ON THE CANVAS OF THE RING, AND THE REFEREE CALLS FOR THE BELL!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ by Tupac hits, as the crowd erupts into cheers. There are some boos for Charlie Marr after what he did to TLA in this match, but regardless, this arena is loud and vocal here tonight.)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner by disqualification… TLA!!!

Rich Russillo: You heard it folks!! This match ends in a DQ! This was a hard fought match, but Charlie couldn’t keep himself from using his cheap tactics.

James Peters: But even worse for Charlie.. He couldn’t get away with his cheap tactics. Normally a guy like Charlie can fool the referee, but not this time!

Persephone: And if we look at Charlie right now, he’s arguing with the referee. He’s yelling at him for making the call and calling off this match. The referee however, stands his ground until charlie exits the ring.

Rich Russillo: What a match that was tonight. Regardless of how it finished, we surely got a great performance from both of these two men.

James Peters: We’ll see what happens next for them, but for now that is all we have left for Sunday Night Voltage. We’ll See You Next Time!!

Persephone: WOOOOO!!! NEXT TIME!!!

(The screen shows Charlie Marr aggressively grabbing his EAW Hardcore Championship, then storming his way towards the entrance ramp. We then get a shot of TLA holding his cajones, as he looks up at Charlie Marr with a pissed off look on his face. He may have won this match, but it was only because Marr did him dirty with that low blow. TLA remains in pain, as the screen fades to black.)
