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

Kawajai: TERRITORIAL INVASION IS JUST ONE WEEK AWAY! WELCOME TO SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE! THE FINAL STOP BEFORE ONE OF OUR BIGGEST EVENTS OF THE YEAR! What a show we have lined up! Word on the streets is there are several elitists from all brands just waiting in the shadows so it’s safe to say this will be a hellacious show to say the least!

Nick Angel: I can’t wait to get it under way! We have an amazing card lined up as the number one contender to the Openweight Championship in Lars Grier takes on the WHC Rex McAllister and who knows? We could be looking at a future world championship match right there!

(“Still Unbroken” Lynyrd Skynyrd hits to a huge pop as Rex McAllister comes through the curtains donning his EAW World Heavyweight Championship, following closely behind are Charlie Marr & Daryl Kinkade who have on their own National Elite Championships, they make their way up the ramp alongside him.)

Kawajai: Speak of the devil, once again Voltage kicks off with the tandem of Rex McAllister and MarrKade! Last week didn’t necessarily end in the most predictable way as Charlie Marr kind of went off the rails and later that night he’d have to eat those words as Empire’s Jaded Wolfe Hearts made a surprise visit, we’ll see how they address things tonight!

(They stand in the middle of the ring as the music dies down, Rex begins to speak)

Rex: I guess we should start by addressing the elephant in the room. Last week, our friend Charlie here went on a tangent about the Empire roster and it’s safe to say that the message was heard loud and clear, and responded to. A blindsided attack left my two pupils laid out by the Jaded Wolfe Hearts. The big question that I was hit with all throughout the week on social media, in my text messages, on the streets, you name it, was “where were you and why didn’t you help your partners out?”. Well it’s simple, for one I was in the back preparing for my match against Xander Payne. For two, this was a much needed experience for my two partners. Who’s to say they won’t find themselves in a similar three on two situation in the actual War Games match due to the fact that one of us has yet to be released into the match? We have to be ready for all situations and all scenarios, what happened last week won’t happen again though. Jaded Wolfe Hearts already played their hand.

Charlie: I said what I said. Whether people agree with me or not, I’m not mincing words and I’m not backing down. I made a name for myself in this business being me and not compromising for anything and that reflects inside and outside of that ring. What happened last week when I was bumrushed is no big deal at all. I’ll have my opportunity to get my revenge on Sienna, Kassidy, and Tyler, and when I do, it will be when it actually matters and my brand will come out victorious because of it.

Daryl: As Charlie’s partner and co-champion, I echo those sentiments and we will do whatever it takes to make sure that our brand walks away with those bragging rights. We thrive under pressure and when our backs are against the wall. These brand’s all have a lot of talented people and they all have their own unique qualities that make them special. Team Showdown has a hungry Diamond Cage who’s out for blood, he alone carries the weight of the team on his shoulders as he’s accompanied by the NEO Syndicate who if I’m going to be honest have their work cut out for them, but I don’t doubt their will to win and that should be something to look out for. The Jaded Wolfe Hearts are not just looking to represent Empire, but they’re looking to represent every woman out there in the world. They want to prove that not only do they belong in this match, but they want to be VICTORIOUS. I’ve witnessed their fury last week, and I know we have our work cut out with them alone. Then there’s The 1%, the talk of EAW, the team everybody can’t stop talking about ever since Pain for Pride. Ironically they’re also the team who’s claim to fame was forming at our expense. I can’t wait to pay them back and show them who the top team in this company truly is.

Charlie: Isn’t it funny how Hurricane Hawk is the one who proposed this match and then proceeded to put together the weakest team out of all of us? The NEO Syndicate belongs nowhere near this match if we’re going to just be honest with ourselves. Not only do they bring the value of this match down, their inclusion basically automatically eliminates Showdown because really… who the fuck believes they actually have a chance? Between them, Tyler Wolfe, and Jack Ripley I just can’t quite put my finger on who the biggest tagalong freeloader out of each group is. What do you think Rex?

Rex: Well I’ve had my fair share of battles with Jack over the past year and some change, I’ll give him credit, he’s slightly above the level of a NEO Syndicate.

Charlie: Oh yeah how could I forget, the glorified tag team star Jack Ripley, these matches are his specialty! You know, I always did wonder what happened to his old running mate David Davidson? Did he run off Japan with those other sheep or what? Would be pretty ironic that two partners who seemed inseparable stand on completely sides of the war lines. Which would basically play into my idea that eventually Jack won’t see eye to eye with Theron and DEDEDE either once the smoke clears, but that’s another story for another day. MarrKade and Rex though? We are a cohesive unit and that will be on display come Territorial Invasion. Speaking of tagalongs, how about that Tyler Wolfe chick? I must admit, Jaded Hearts are better than MarrKade at one thing and that is being charitable. Those chicks have been a unit from REVOLT all the way to EAW and then all of a sudden they throw Tyler into the equation and expect us to just run with it like nothing’s wrong with the picture. Sorry girls, but you can’t make fetch happen. I think I can speak on behalf of all of the EAW Universe when I say we liked you better before you threw your little friend with her feminazi agenda into the equation and now everything that made you girls special is overshadowed by her overbearing annoyingness.

Daryl: Charlie Marr ladies and gentlemen. He doesn’t beat around the bush and I love the bloke for that. I can’t say that I disagree either. When you really think about it, we’re the only team who have naturally come together. We didn’t force some reach of an alliance, we didn’t align with one another because one person had power that the rest of us wanted to take advantage over, we didn’t just throw a random person in our team at the last minute, and we didn’t have a huge feud and have to force like we like one another. We all had a common goal and we all bring something of value to the table.

Rex: I saw something in you two men early into your careers and so far you’re both blossoming into stars. Future world champions in this company if you keep at it. Territorial Invasion is our biggest test yet and the perfect place to show how far we’ve all come. I look forward to-

(“Illest Motherfucker Alive” by Kanye West hits to a huge mixed reaction as a shocked and confused Rex, Daryl, and Charlie look on, Mr. DEDEDE makes his way through the curtain and up the ramp.)

Kawajai: Talk about an unexpected surprise! It’s the chairman himself here on Voltage for the first time since June!

Nick Angel: Territorial Invasion season brings the surprises on each brand on a weekly basis, it should be interesting to see what DEDEDE has to say especially without his two partners by his side.

(DEDEDE enters the ring and stands across from the trio as the music dies down)

Charlie: What the hell brings you here?

DEDEDE: I own the company dickhead. I go wherever I please and I just thought I’d check my old stomping grounds out in the last show before the big one and see how things have been holding up. Doesn’t look too good if you ask me. Rex is the world champ even tho last time he was a champ he couldn’t even successfully defend against bum ass Cage. :mjlol: LC and Andy actually think they own the company. :mjlol: Lars still a disappointment. :mjlol: The more things change the more they stay the same I guess.

Rex: That’s right I’m a world champion, for the second time this year. Two more than you’ve held this year and two more than Theron has ever held in his life. You wanna know what keeps Voltage at the top and as the most relevant brand on a weekly basis? We have balance. We have our fair share of legends and veterans who unlike you can still go in the ring. We have our modern stars like myself who hold the fort down, and we have our future stars headlined by MarrKade who also hold the fort down. What is Dynasty other than a 1% circle jerk? What’s Showdown other than Diamond Cage and then a bunch of other irrelevant people who’d be opening up on any other brand?

DEDEDE: The difference is that the 1% is at the top of our brand because we are that much better than everybody on it. You think it wouldn’t be the same if we touched down on the “balanced” Voltage? We set up shop here and your nostalgia acts who burned out in 2014 wouldn’t be a factor anymore and those two transitional world title reigns will be the only world title reigns you ever have again as long as you’re under the same roof as us, guaranteed. Maybe if MarrKadeLister or whatever other tumblr esque ship name you guys wanna call yourself were as good as the 1%, Voltage wouldn’t be as “balanced” as you like to say.

Rex: Like I said, I’m the world champion, and that’s for a reason.

DEDEDE: What about your partners over here? The co-champs of a singles championship. The most idiotic concept I’ve ever witnessed in my life by the way. What’s the reason for their title reigns? Oh yeah, because neither one of them could beat POP by themselves.

Charlie: A lot of smugness from the guy who hides behind Theron and Jack Ripley. You couldn’t beat us by yourself at PFP, you think I forgot?

DEDEDE: Imagine being that delusional. I love the confidence though Charlie, you’re gonna need it to compensate for your lack of talent. You talk a lot and hope that it overshadows the fact that you’re the third wheel, if anything you’re just as irrelevant as Tyler Wolfe and the NEO Syndicate.

Rex: Charlie irrelevant? You clearly don’t watch your own product.

DEDEDE: Admittedly, I could give two shits about Voltage especially with a world champion as bland as you at the top of it. It’s a shame Chris burned out and has to resort to playing sidekicks to dykes to stay relevant.

Daryl: Alright DEDEDE enough of the games, what did you come here for? You wanted a preview for TI or something? Because we can deliver that to you right now.

DEDEDE: I thought you’d never as-

(“F.U.U” by Dream Wife hits to loud boos as Sienna Jade makes her way up the ramp and into the ring)

DEDEDE: Oh great.

Charlie: You got a lot of nerve coming out here especially with no backups.

Sienna: Who says I don’t have them? Just because I’m a big girl who doesn’t need my partners to breath down my neck 24/7 like you and Daryl seem to need to do with one another doesn’t mean I need to do the same. We believe in our abilities to hold our own unlike you. But yeah hows the head by the way? You know.. after being dropped on it last week.

Charlie: I’ll be asking you the same question when it actually matters. You know you don’t belong in this match. DEDEDE damn sure knows you don’t belong in this match and probably feels the same way that I do but since he’s such a sellout this wouldn’t be the first time he traded in his morals for a paycheck.

Sienna: Morals? What the hell are you talking about as if women being included in this match is supposed to break some code? You’re a delusional piece of shit and Rex you’re just as much of a piece of shit for enabling him. You parade around like this pure cool calm and collected guy but then you give people like this a platform.

Rex: I’m Charlie’s partner, not his father. That’s the difference between the two of us because my intent isn’t to control or hinder anybody from being themselves. If Charlie being who he is, is enough to catapult him into stardom then I’ll be supporting him along the way. You could learn a thing or two especially when dealing with Kassidy, we all know it eats you alive to see her surpassing you and slowly but surely becoming the more relevant one out of the duo.

Sienna: Oh my gosh another “Kassidy is better than you” diss whatever will I do?! Well even if that’s actually the case I’d be honored, I wouldn’t wanna be number 2 to anybody else in the world. You’d know a thing or two about being number 2, since you’re the world champ and still not the most relevant on your brand.

DEDEDE: You both failed at Pain for Pride. You’re both going to fail to will your team to victory at Territorial Invasion.

Sienna: I’d say the same to you about willing your team but you let Theron cuck you out of the captain slot.

Charlie: Ooooo, wait a minute! Didn’t you two briefly have a thing back in REVOLT? I see where this is going now..

DEDEDE: I’ve slept with hundreds of women between the time of REVOLT and now and you think I’m supposed to remember all of them? I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between Sienna and some random thot I gave a backstage pass to. But shid I’ll take your word for it.

Charlie: Wait a minute… does…. does…. does Impact know about this Sienna?!?!

(Charlie sarcastically puts the microphone to the face of Sienna before she slaps it out of his hand)

Sienna: The day I sleep with that dirty old man is the day you learn how to become relevant without latching onto Cuckade over there.

Charlie: Speaking of cucks, you’ve spent the latter half of 2018 being cucked. Cloud cucked you out of your championship, Kassidy cucked you out of your popularity, Tyler cucked you out of your best friend and we don’t even care about her. If Sienna is Beyonce and Kassidy is Kelly, Tyler must be… Michelle Williams! How do you get upstaged by the third wheel?!

(Sienna slaps Charlie in the face to the delight of the crowd. He pauses for a second before regaining his composure.)

Charlie: ….You’re gonna regret th-

(Sienna slaps him again before Rex steps in between)

Sienna: This isn’t the last you’re gonna hear from me, and I won’t be alone next time.

(Sienna rolls out of the ring and storms up the back)

DEDEDE: Women am I right? See you fellas soon, be on high alert, because you don’t wanna have a repeat of last week if you know what I’m saying ;).

(Mr. DEDEDE leaves as well as “Illest Motherfucker Alive” picks back up, Rex & MarrKade stand in the middle of the ring looking on)

Kawajai: What a way to start the show! DEDEDE and Sienna with the surprise appearances, but no representative from Showdown, something tells me this isn’t the end of the cross-brand festivities and we’re only just getting started.

Nick Angel: I think so too, a lot of verbal slugs have been thrown but if I know these individuals like I think I do, they won’t be satisfied with just that heading into Territorial Invasion. I just hope our Voltage team has their head on a swivel this time and are prepared for whatever comes their way because I sure can’t stand to see my brand get embarrassed in their own home for a second week in a row!

(Commercial break)

(Voltage comes back on air as ‘We Are’ by Hollywood Undead plays as Jason Ryan makes his way to the ring. He slowly walks, focused on his match, but taking in the boos from the crowd.)

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST….. FROM BILLINGS, MONTANA.. WEIGHING IN AT 245 POUNDS.. JASON RYAN!!!!

Kawajai: Jason Ryan, “The Son of Satan”, is here to have a fight, and he is here, to harm his opponent. His target, is none other, that the Woogieman.

(If Ya Smell By Adam Massacre plays as Woogieman walks out to the loud audience reaction. He takes a minute to look at them, before shifting his attention to Jason Ryan, and walking towards the ring.)

Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT….. FROM JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA… WEIGHING IN AT 260 POUNDS.. THE.. WOOGIEMAN!!!!!

Nick Angel: Jason Ryan wants to inflict pain, but Woogieman is no easy opponent. This match could go either way, but we will see who gets the victory.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Kawajai: And this match goes under way. Woogieman, wanting to go into a collar and elbow tie up, but Jason Ryan slaps him in the face, sending him to the floor! Ryan now, laughing, as this match gets a quick start. Ryan, holding Woogieman in a headlock, trying to wear him down, before Woogieman is able to fight back. But Woogieman, attempts to life Jason, but he fails, Ryan Irish whips him to the ropes, amd a clothes- no! Woogieman, tossing Jason Ryan right over the top rope! Ryan, falling out of the ring, and hits the barricade! Woogieman now, runs the ropes, and a Suicid- OH! A punch to the face of Woogieman! Causing him to fall, hanging on the second rope! Jason Ryan, gets back in the ring, and now is just choking Woogieman on the ropes, but lets go at the count of 4. Ryan now, waiting for Woogieman to get up, and now goes for a Discus Clothesline, but Woogieman ducks it, and drops Jason Ryan with a huge Samoan Drop!

Nick Angel: Woogieman isn’t done yet, as he picks him back up, for a Belly to Belly Suplex! He picks him back up, and drops Jason with a Snap suplex! Woogieman now goes for the cover.

ONE!
TWO-

Nick Angel: Ryan kicks out, and Uh oh! Woogieman, setting up for the People’s Elbow already, he runs to the ropes, but Jason Ryan flooring him with a huge Discus Clothesline! Jason Ryan so far has been bringing the pain to Woogieman, as he is forced to roll out of the ring. Jason Ryan now, mocking Woogieman, and now is going for a Suicide Dive of his own! But Woogieman now with the counter, but this time, he grabs him, and floors Ryan with a huge DDT to the outside! Woogieman now, picking up Jason Ryan, and throws him into the barricade, he tries to clothesline him over the barricade but Ryan catches him by the throat! Chokeslam on the outside of the ring! Meanwhile the referee on a five count!

Referee: 5!…6!..7-

Kawajai: Ryan throws Woogieman into the ring, and now covers him.

ONE!
TWO!
TH-

Kawajai: Wow! Woogieman somehow, kicking out of that chokeslam! Jason Ryan, wondering how Woogieman was able to survive it, but it doesn’t matter to him, as he backs up into the corner, getting ready for a Punt Kick. Woogie man, gets on his hands and knees, and Jason charges at him, but Woogieman! Using his arm to trip Jason! Woogieman getting into position for it now, and locks in the Sharpshooter! Right in the middle of the ring! Jason Ryan, trying to get to the ropes! Woogieman, attempts to pull him back, but Jason kicks Woogieman off of him. Ryan now back to his feet, AND A PUNT KICK TO THE WOOGIEMAN!!!!! THE COVER BY RYAN!!

ONE!!
TWO!!!
THREE

Nick Angel: How did Woogieman manage to get his shoulder up!? That is exactly what Jason Ryan must be thinking, as he sits there in shock! Jason now, picks him up, setting up for the Last Rites! But Woogieman, throws him with a Back Body Drop! Woogie man now, going towards Jason, but a huge running Clothesline drops him. Jason now, bouncing off the ropes, and a Curb Stomp to Woogieman! Jason Ryan though, collapsing after that Curb Stomp. He gets onto one knee, and goes for the cover.

ONE!
TWO!
THRE-

Kawajai: And he does it again! Woogieman won’t stay down in this match, but Jason is picking up Woogieman, trying to put him on the top rope, but Woogieman, with a huge DDT! And he kips up afterwards! The Woogieman is fired up now! Jason Ryan now, getting back to his feet, and runs at Woogieman, but is dropped by a clothesline! Jason gets back to his feet, but Woogieman catches him with a Spear! Ryan is down! Woogie man now, waiting, as Ryan finally gets back to his feet. Jason Ryan, charges at Woogieman, AND JASON IS FLOORED WITH A SPINEBUSTER!!! Woogieman runs the ropes, but Jason dodges the elbow! Jason gets back to his feet, and Woogieman charges at him! Jason throws him up! COLT.45!!! THAT’S IT!! THE POP UP SUPERKICK DROPS WOOGIEMAN!! JASON GOES FOR THE COVER!!

ONE!
TWO!!
THREE!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(‘We Are’ by Hollywood Undead plays as Jason Ryan gets up, smirking after his win over Woogieman.)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…. JASON….. RYAN!!!!

Nick Angel: Woogieman tried to do do whatever he can, but it just wasn’t enough, as Jason Ryan, gets the victory over him.

Kawajai: I think you’re underselling this victory Nick…. JASON RYAN HAS JUST DEFEATED THE GOAT!!!! DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS COULD MEAN FOR THIS MAN’S CAREER GOING FORWARD? TALK ABOUT A DEFINING WIN!

Nick Angel: Calm down there buddy… but yes, impressive victory by Jason who’s had some hiccups early in his career but he’s well on his way. We switch gears to the New Breed Championship scene as Voltage’s own Xander Payne finds himself in a huge title defense situation against three of each brands brightest young stars.

(Highlights of Andy Lush, Drake King, and Raven Roberts play showcasing their roads to contendership for the New Breed Championship.)

(“It Follows” by Cane Hill hits to boos as Xander Payne makes his way out holding his New Breed Championship up high in the air as he walks down the ramp.)

Kawajai: Last week the self-proclaimed New Breed God had a lot to say regarding his Territorial Invasion opponents and said he would invite all three men to Voltage this week for a face to face. Here he is tonight looking like he’s going to follow through with his promises.

Nick Angel: Xander’s confidence is certainly at an all time high, lets just hope that translates to the ring so that this New Breed Championship can stay on Voltage.

(Xander enters the ring with a mic in hand as the music dies down and he begins to speak.)

Xander: One week remains until I add another successful title defense under my belt. One week remains until I solidify myself as the top New Breed Competitor not just in EAW today, but in EAW history. Time and time again I am met with an obstacle, I am counted out, rooted against, and time and time again what happens? I destroy the dreams of every detractor hoping I would fail. This is no different, the only thing different are the names, but the results remain the same. The results will always be me standing tall with my championship intact and I will show the world that you simply cannot top the New Breed God.

(Xander raises his championship in the air as the crowd gives a mixed reaction)

Xander: For all of you people booing, you need to understand the fact that I am the only thing keeping this championship on this brand. I am the only thing keeping this championship relevant, so if I lose.. VOLTAGE loses, and not only that but EAW AS A WHOLE loses because now they don’t have a credible champion. I’ll make sure the opposite happens as I do what I do best, and that is protect home turf. So as you know last week I invited my opponents at Territorial Invasion to Voltage and from what I hear they have all accepted my invitation. So before I bring them all out I’d like to run down through the list of who they actually are since ya know, none of them are actually relevant and I’m the only draw in this match. So first we got-

(‘Make A Move’ by Icon For Hire hits to loud boos as Raven Roberts makes her way out. An annoyed Xander Payne looks on as she approaches the ring and enters)

Xander: Did I say you could come out yet?

Raven: First of all, I answer to nobody. Second of all I would rather die than to sit there and watch you ramble on about a bunch of nothing. You can’t talk about relevance when your title as long as it’s in your possession is the most irrelevant championship there is. It needs someone like myself to bring it to it’s true glory, and that’s exactly what is going to happen.

Xander: You…. beating me…… HA! Imagine that.

Raven: No need to imagine when you can get the reality this weekend.

Xander: Is that right?

Raven: Damn right. Don’t think just because I’m petite in figure and you’re one donut crumb away from morbid obesity that it automatically gives you some physical advantage. Don’t think that your sex automatically gives you one either. I am superior to you in many ways and that will be on display come Territorial Invasion.

Xander: I love the imagination, truly, I do… come on, keep going tell me some more jokes I’m entertained!

Raven: Okay so…. I got the biggest joke of them all, you ready… okay….. YOUR NEW BREED TITLE REIGN!!!

(Raven starts bursting out laughing as Xander’s smug expression quickly turns into a frown)

Xander: You-

(“Revolution” by Pennywise hits to cheers as Drake King makes his way up the ramp and into the ring, he brushes past Raven Roberts and winks at Xander on his way to be handed a microphone.)

Xander: You got some nerve. What is with you people just barging in without the proper introduction?

Drake: Spare me your half hearted introductions Xander. The only thing I want from you is that title. I was the first person to earn a shot at that championship, it was supposed to be Drake King taking on Xander Payne, and what happened? Empire just won’t stop until they get their hands in EVERYTHING and ends up putting Raven Roberts in the match as well, and THEN Dynasty puts Andy Lush in the match. That is NOT OK!

Raven: Cry me a river, are you sure you’re in the right profession complaining about getting more competition? Personally I can’t wait to show all of you up.

Drake: Don’t get me wrong Raven it’s just.. well… I’m the only one to actually earn my shot here. How many title shots have you gotten and how many times have you failed again? How many multiman matches with title implications have you been in and come up short in again? Please remind me.

Raven: Oh we’re going that route, well unlike you I’ve actually held gold here in EAW for one. For two I may have come up short a few times before but all that shows is that this isn’t my first rodeo. I have the experience and I know what it takes to get it done. You’re wide eyed and just excited to be in the position you’re in to where you have a match at a stage like TI and off of that alone you’re satisfied. Me? I’ve been there before, but now I’m ready to handle my business and make history.

Xander: You will indeed make history, by becoming the first female to ever be pinned in a New Breed Championship match! What a trailblazer! Icon!

(“Now You’re a Man” by DVDA hits as Andy Lush makes his way out with a confident look on his face, he struts down the ramp and into the ring much to the annoyance of the three competitors inside looking on.)

Andy: Sorry for being fashionably late. I had a few more important things to do than to stand here and bicker with you losers.

Xander: ……Who the hell are you?

Andy: Don’t worry, you’ll know who I am soon enough, when it matters. I may be the newest name out of the bunch, but when it’s all said and done I’ll be the most memorable name. For all of the “who the hell is Andy Lush” comments, did you idiots ever stop to think that there’s a reason why I made it into this match with just three matches under my belt? It’s because unlike you guys, I’m a SURE THING.

Xander: You’re not special Andy. Not one bit. My two successful title defenses came against men just like you, men early into their EAW careers with no more than 5 matches under their belt but they managed to qualify for a shot for this belt. What did it do for them? Nothing, they lost to me and disappeared, Tayo and VIP are irrelevant because of ME. You’ll just be added to that list.

Raven: Talk about an underwhelming list. If I were you I wouldn’t necessarily be bragging about beating the likes of Tayo, but then again that level of competition is to be expected when people of your caliber hold that title.

Xander: What makes you think you’re any better? I beat two damn near 7 foot behemoths when the odds were stacked against me. What’s your level of competition and claim to fame? Ending the career of Revy? You think that makes you an intimidating figure for beating up on someone who’s been a loser her whole career?

Drake: At the end of the day, none of that matters. All that matters is the match we have ahead of us. The match where you’ll witness A-OK Drake King save that title from Xander’s reign of terror.

Andy: Oh look he can actually form sentences when he feels like it.

Drake: Ok.

Raven: Yeah that’s my que to get out of here, I’ll see you idiots next week, keep the belt warm for me Xander.

Xander: For you? Bitch please. Your title aspirations are as dead as your ex boyfriend.

(Raven who was half way through the ropes about to make her exit immediately pauses after hearing Xander’s comment. She stays still in that position for a few seconds as she’s processing what was just said and her facial expression turns to an enraged one. She immediately goes back and charges at Xander.)

Kawajai: AND ALL HELL HAS BROKEN LOOSE AS RAVEN ROBERTS JUMPS ON TOP OF XANDER AND IS UNLEASHING A FURY OF FISTS AT OUR NEW BREED CHAMPION!!! XANDER IS DAZED AND OUT OF IT AND RAVEN IS ENRAGED!!!! DRAKE AND ANDY ARE JUST LOOKING ON ENJOYING THE VIEW AS RAVEN WONT STOP, FIST AFTER FIST ON TOP OF THE LAID OUT XANDER PAYNE BY RAVEN ROBERTS…. XANDER FINALLY BREAKS FREE AS HE TOSSES THE MUCH SMALLER RAVEN ROBERTS OFF OF HIM AS SHE GOES FLYING ACROSS THE RING… NOW XANDER GETS UP AND IS IN ATTACK MODE…. BUT BEFORE HE REACHES RAVEN HE’S MET BY DRAKE KING AND ANDY LUSH… AND THEY BOTH START SWINGING AWAY AT XANDER AND GRAB AHOLD OF HIM… THEY IRISH WHIP HIM ONTO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING BUT XANDER SMARTLY ROLLS OUT AND SPEEDS UP THE RAMP, ESCAPING THE CHAOS!

(“Revolution” by Pennywise hits as all three New Breed Championship contenders look along from inside of the ring taunting Xander who’s making his way up the ramp recovering from the attack.)

Kawajai: This certainly didn’t go as planned for Xander, but at least he escaped the fray before things got too bad.

Nick Angel: Now you know it’s team gold here but I must say, Xander deserved that beating for that comment. That was just low.

Kawajai: It’s all about mind games Nick, while Xander may have lost the physical battle he has the mental edge over his opponents and knows just what to say to make them click. Besides, TI will be every man and woman for themselves, this is not a strategy that’s going to win them the match if they plan on teaming up, and if I know Xander like I think I do, he’s going to find a way to exploit this!

Nick Angel: This match is now underway as the newcomer Osamu takes on the veteran, Prince of Phenomenal. POP looks ready for a fight as he approach Osamu. He runs for a clothesline but Osamu quickly ducks! Osamu steps back as POP spins around charges towards him.. WITH A RUNNING DROP KICK! POP goes down and rolls out of the ring quickly while holding at his jaw. He looks into the ring seeming surprised that Osamu got the upper hand on him. POP rolls back in the ring. He walks around Osamu who is welcoming the challenge. BOTH MEN LOCK UP! OSAMU QUICKLY KNEES POP IN THE MIDSECTION! He now steps back and delivers another kick to mid section! POP is doubled over in pain as Osamu jumps up and drive his elbow directly into his spine!

Kawajai: He grabs POP and positions him for his next maneuver! He seems poised to execute a neck breaker but POP desperately fights out of it! He grabs the ropes to recover himself and to catch his breath as Osamu charges at him from behind! POP gets his foot out and connects to the stomach of Osamu! POP NOW JUMPS ON THE ROPES AND DOES A SPRING BOARD MOONSAULT RIGHT INTO OSAMU AS POP TURNS THE TABLES! POP stands up as he positions himself over Osamu and crouches down! He delivers several shots at Osamu as he attempts to pummel him! He rolls Osamu over and applies the camel clutch!

Nick Angel: POP is wearing down Osamu here as he applies great pressure to this hold! The back of Osamu is bending in ways it probably isn’t supposed to but Osamu is able to reposition himself so that he can grasp at the ropes! POP keeps the hold applies for as long as possible before the referee forces him to release it! Osamu pulls himself up and POP grabs him from behind and pulls him away from the ropes! He now spins him around… AND OSAMU WITH A HUGE FOREARM TO POP THAT SENDS HIM STAGGERING! OSAMU RUNS OFF THE ROPES AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE! POP rolls onto his hands and knees and Osamu delivers a running kick to his ribs! POP cluthes as his ribs in pain as Osamu quickly ascends to the top rope! HE LEAPS AND DELIVERS A DIVING FOOT STOMP TO POP! OSAMU QUICKLY MAKES THE COVER!

ONEEEEE! TWOOOOOOO!

Kawajai: POP KICKS OUT! A big move by Osamu but it isn’t going to be enough to put away the Hall of Famer! POP struggles to his feet. OSAMU WITH A RUNNING KNEE! MY GOODNESS! THAT SHOT SENDS POP THROUGH THE ROPES AND TUMBLING DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Osamu jumps back and charges once more… HE DIVES THROUGH THE ROPES! HE TAKES HIMSELF AND POP DOWN WITH A HUGE SUICIDE DIVE! Both men go down as their pain is apparent! Osamu is the first to his feet as he approaches POP! He applies a rear waist lock and seems prepared to attempt a German Suplex! POP quickly fights back with several elbows to the head of Osamu which causes him to break the hold! POP PICKS UP OSAMU AS HE BRINGS HIM ONTO THE APRON AND DELVERS A SCOOP SLAM RIGHT ONTO IT!

Nick Angel: Osamu is in almost immediately pain from that development! POP now pushes him back in the ring but he stays on the apron. No doubt planning his next move. Osamu stumbles to his feet and POP spring boards off the ropes from the apron… SPRING BOARD FOREARM SMASH TO OSAMU! POP WITH AN ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL MANEUVER! HE MAY HAVE KNOCKED OSAMU OUT AS HE HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!

ONEEEE! TWOOOOOOOO!

Kawajai: NO! OSAMU KICKS OUT AND POP THOUGHT HE HAD IT WON! POP now stands up and looks at Osamu with disgust! He picks him up and tackles him in to the corner where he unleashes with a flurry of punches! The referee forces POP to back it up! BUT POP RUNS RIGHT BACK AT OSAMU FOR A CLOTHESLINE! HE PULLS OSAMU OUT OF THE CORNER AND LIFTS HIM UP… MY GOD! A SIT OUT POWER BOMB! HE COVERS AGAIN!

ONEEEEE! TWOOOOOOO!

Nick Angel: ANOTHER KICK OUT BY OSAMU! POP gets up in frustration again. He takes a moment and plots his next course of action. He drags Osamu towards the corner before he proceeds to climb up the ropes! POP IS PERCHED AND HE DIVES! 450 SPLASH! BUT OSAMU RUNS OUT OF THE WAY! POP ROLLS AROUND IN PAIN AS HE CRASHED AND BURNED! HE GETS UP AND OSAMU JUMPS UP AND HITS A SWINGING NECK BREAKER! HE NOW PICKS POP UP… NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! HE BRIDGES IT INTO A PIN! COULD THIS BE IT?!

ONEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!

Kawajai: NO! IT IS NO GOOD! Osamu almost pulled off the upset right there but POP displays his resilience! Osamu now climbs to the top rope as he looks to high risk! I believe he’s setting up his Top Rope Dropkick! He’s ready as POP is still making his way to his feet…. BUT POP QUICKLY LUNGES FORWARD! BY DOING THIS, HE MANAGES TO DISRUPT OSAMU’S BALANCE! POP NOW JUMPS UP THERE WITH HIM! HE STAND OVER OSAMU AND DELIVERS SEVERAL STRIKES TO THE SKULL! OSAMU STRIKES BACK WITH SHOTS TO THE RIBS! POP RESPONDS WITH A BIG KNEE TO THE SKULL… HURRICANRANA! HE DELIVERS A TOP ROPE HURRICANRANA TO OSAMU! OSAMU CRASHES INTO THE MAT BELOW!

Nick Angel: POP NOW STANDS OVER OSAMU ONCE MORE! THIS TIME HE’S DETERMINED TO LAND IT… 450 SPLASH! POP CRASHES INTO OSAMU, THIS TIME CONNECTING! WHAT A MOVE! HE COVERS!

ONEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO! THR-

Nick Angel: WHAT?! A KICK OUT! POP IS IN COMPLETE SHOCK! OSAMU KICKS OUT JUST IN TIME! POP can’t believe it! Osamu just endured a 450 splash! POP stumbles up to his feet! He lifts up Osamu! He rocks him with a huge elbow to the jaw! HE’S GOT HIM! POP IS GOING FOR THE CROWN OF THORNS! IT’S OVER… NO! OSAMU GETS OUT OF IT! HE GRABS POP FROM BEHIND! GERMAN SUPLEX! BOTH MEN GO DOWN!

Kawajai: Osamu is giving POP everything he can handle. Both men struggle to their feet as exhaustion and pain is beginning to wash over both men as this match has featured some astounding moves. Osamu and POP manage to get to a vertical base and they exchange of blow begins. POP rocks Osamu with a right punch but Osamu quickly responds… AND HE GOES AGAIN! HE UNLOADS ON POP AND POP IS UNABLE TO DEFEND HIMSELF! OSAMU STEPS BACK… DROP KICK! HE MUSTERS HIS STRENGTH AND LIFTS POP TO HIS FEET ONCE MORE… ANOTHER DROP KICK! HE ISN’T DONE! ONE MORE TIME… A THIRD DROP KICK TO POP BY OSAMU! THE TRIPLE DROP KICK MANEUVER! OSAMU LIFTS UP POP ONCE MORE… HE GETS HIM UP FOR THE MUSCLE BUSTER… BUT POP ESCAPES! PELE KICK! HE GOES FOR A PELE KICK ON OSAMU BUT IT MISSES! HE GETS POP AND CONNECTS WITH A SNAPMARE DDT! HE COVERS!

ONEEEEE! TWOOOOOOO! THR-

Nick Angel: KICK OUT! THESE TWO MEN ARE PUTTING ON A SHOW! Osamu is the first to get up as POP is a little slower to do so! OSAMU CHARGES AT POP BUT POP RESPONDS WITH A DROP KICK OF HIS OWN! HE GOES FOR A ENZUIGIRI… BUT OSAMU DUCKS! POP RECOVERS AND OSAMU CONNECTS WITH AN ENZUIGIRI OF HIS OWN! POP STUMBLES AND OSAMU LIFTS HIM UP FOR THE MUSCLE BUSTER… NO! POP ESCAPES ONCE MORE… PELE KICK! THE PELE KICK ON OSAMU HITS! POP GRABS HIM… CROWN OF THORNS! THIS TIME IT CONNECTS! POP COVERS!

ONEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray begins to play as POP stumbles to his feet as the referee raises his hand. POP then begins to celebrate his victory.)

RA: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… PRINCCEE OFFF PHENOMENNALLL!

Kawajai: What a contest! Osamu pulled out all the stops and almost defeated the Hall of Famer, Prince of Phenomenal!

Nick Angel: I’m beyond impressed by the Osamu here tonight. He almost defeated POP in a great contest.

(The camera follows the back of a blonde haired man in a suit as he’s walking down the hall, as he continues walking it becomes more clear that it is Jacob Moore, who stops at a door that says “Matt Daniels” and knocks on it.)

“Come in!”

(Jacob opens the door as Matt Daniels is seen sitting in his office.)

Matt: Hey Jacob, what’s going on?

Jacob: I was just wondering what the hell is my purpose on this brand?

Matt: Huh?

Jacob: Week after week I come out here, I make statements, win matches and I still don’t get the proper respect and attention that I deserve. How many of your golden boys do I have to outdo before I’m looked at as a top talent on this brand?

Matt: Jacob, I’m not sure what you’re getting at here. I rate you highly and think you’re a great asset to this brand.

Jacob: Well then where are my opportunities? This brand is nothing but a slurp fest for guys like MarrKade and POP and Lars and all they ever do is let down those who put their faith in them. I’m consistent and I’m a sure thing, but I guess I’m not a shiny new toy or an antique with a overrated legacy.

???: Is this a wrestling company or is this a damn daycare?

Jacob: Excuse me? Who the hell are you?

(Osamu Arcichida walks in with a towel over his head fresh off of his match.)

Osamu: My name’s Osamu, the future of this company.

Jacob: Yeah I’ve certainly never heard that before.

Osamu: You don’t need to hear it, you can just see it. What you’ll see is, a man who is slowly but surely working his way up the ranks to become a huge factor in this business by EARNING his opportunities based on the work he puts in inside of that ring.

Jacob: Work? You mean like the loss you just took?

Osamu: Yeah I lost but I gave a Hall of Famer the fight of his life in what, my third or fourth main roster match? I’m working my way up the ranks the traditional way and I don’t have to bitch in private because I don’t get the attention I crave like you do. Stop acting like a child, grow up, and understand that it is nobody’s job to babysit you, if you want the proper respect that you THINK you deserve, then carry yourself like you’ve been here before and ACT like it.

(Jacob Moore smirks and then gets into the face of Osamu who doesn’t back down as Matt Daniel’s immediately jumps up to calm them down.)

Matt: Guys! Guys! Listen! I respect both of you as competitors and this is what I can do for you. I can give you both an opportunity to prove yourselves which will help you both get the proper respect you want. Now I cannot promise that next week I’ll still be in a position of power here, but since I’m still in power at the moment I can make decisions and what I can promise is this: on the first Voltage after Territorial Invasion there will be a number one contenders match for the National Elite Championship: Jacob Moore versus Osamu Arcichida.

Jacob: That’s all I needed to hear. You’ll be eating those words next week Osamu.

Osamu: We’ll see.

(Osamu walks off as a determined Jacob looks on)

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first…

(“Don’t Stop” by InnerPartySystem blares through the speaker as Noah Reigner walks onto the stage as the crowd breaks out in cheers. Reigner looks around the crowd turning around to reveal “THE ASSAULT RIFLE” logo on the back of his jacket. The crowd cheers. Devan Dubian steps out on the stage and the crowd pops for him as well, as he remains behind Noah with his arms crossed and a smirk on his face.)

Bella Braxton: From Seattle Washington, weighing in at 184 pounds, accompanied by Devan Dubian…. NOAHHHH REIGNEERRR!

Kawajai: Coming off a loss last week, Noah Reigner and Devan Dubian are possibly looking to get some payback tonight and redeem themselves…

Nick Angel: It seems like these two are very well matched in terms of skill and talent, Kawa, it’s going to be a great matchup.

(‘Blackout’ by Company Flow blasts through the speakers as The Enterprise make their way to the ring getting boos from the crowd. Blayde eats up the hate, yelling back in audience members faces.)

Bella Braxton: His opponent, from Memphis, Tennessee, weighing in at 229 pounds, accompanied by Lethal Consequences… JACKSON BLAYYYYYDE!

Kawajai: Well, Blayde got the victory for The Enterprise last week, Nick, we’ll see if he can manage to do it again here tonight.

(DING! DING! DING!)

Kawajai: Here we go! JACKSON BLAYDE runs out of his corner going right after Noah Reigner trying to take his head off with a clothesline! Noah Reigner ducks just in time… a stiff forearm right to the chin! Another one! Noah now, sending Blayde towards the ropes… A HUGE dropkick to Blayde, sending him crashing to the mat! Wasting no time, Noah picks up Blayde… punch to the gut by Blayde! Blayde… SPIKE DDT! Did you hear that impact?!

Nick Angel: Yes, Kawa, I did – Noah Reigner’s head crashed into the mat like a box of rocks. Blayde is on the attack now delivering several stomps to Noah as he tries to regain his footing. Blayde hooks his arms around Noah’s chest, it looks like he’s going to try for a German Suplex! … NO! During the attempt of that German Suplex, Noah flipped onto his feet! STEP UP ENZUIGURI TO BLAYDE!

ONE…

TW-

Kawajai: Blayde kicks out after that huge counter by Noah Reigner, what athleticism. Noah has a leg up on Blayde in terms of speed, but that power of Jackson Blayde is something Noah needs to watch out for. Noah is back on his feet now, looking at a downed Blayde… NOAH RUNS TOWARDS BLAYDE!

Nick Angel: Look at the ring smarts on Blayde, he rolls right out of the ring to avoid whatever offense Noah Reigner was thinking about… it looks like he’s still reeling from that earlier kick by Noa-

Kawajai: NOAH REIGNER goes for a suicide dive! BLAYDE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! JESUS! Noah Reigner just went head first right into the barrier, Nick, and I’d be surprised if he didn’t have a concussion!

Nick Angel: What a miscalculation by Noah Reigner here, Jackson Blayde knew Noah Reigner wouldn’t be able to resist that and baited him in just like a fish. Uh-oh, look at the face-to-face here between Dubian and Lethal Consequences as Jackson Blayde gets on his feet. Blayde mocks Dubian on the outside before grabbing Noah by the hair and rolling him back in the ring.

ONE…

TWO…

Kawajai: Noah Reigner is still in this match even after that colossal misstep. Blayde is back on the offensive, however… BLAYDE EXECUTES THE GERMAN SUPLEX!

ONE…

TWO…

Nick Angel: Wow, Noah Reigner kicks out yet again, but it looks like Blayde isn’t done, Kawa… ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX!

ONE…

TWO…

Kawajai: Noah Reigner isn’t done fighting. It looks like… EXPLODER SUPLEX ON REIGNER! MY GOD!

ONE…

TWO…

THRE-

Kawajai: NO! REIGNER KICKS OUT. He’s still in this thing and he’s not going to stay down. Jackson Blayde is visibly frustrated now, looking to the outside… looking at Lethal Consequences. LC makes a slashing motion towards his throat, it looks like he’s signaling for Blayde to take Noah Reigner out for good, Nick!

Nick Angel: You’re right… Noah Reigner is in trouble here. Blayde sets up Reigner in the suplex position, it looks like he might go for that Beale Street Backbreaker! REIGNER knees Blayde in the head! AGAIN!

Kawajai: Noah Reigner is back on his feet! OH! Blayde just poked Noah right in his eye… and slaps him in his face! BELLY-TO-BELLY suplex by Blayde to Reigner… ANOTHER SUPLEX!

ONE…

TWO…

Nick Angel: KICK OUT! Reigner yet again kicks out from another suplex by Jackson Blayde and Blayde is PISSED, Kawa!

Kawajai: You’re not wrong! Jackson Blayde gets right on top of Noah Reigner and begins raining down left and right hands as Noah tries to get his hands up to protect his face. These are brutal straights from Blayde who is clearly growing tired of dishing out these huge maneuver’s on Reigner.

Nick Angel: Look at Blayde now! He’s wasting time here… looking to the outside and mocking Dubian. Don’t waste time, Blayde, get back on Reigner and keep the right hands going.

Kawajai: Dubian is clearly eating this up as he’s laughing at Blayde… Lethal Consequences is pointing out Dubian, telling him to stay on his side of the ring… WAIT, WHAT’S THIS?! SCHOOLBOY ROLLUP FROM REIGNER!

ONE…

TWO…

Kawajai: KICKOUT! What a close one, that was almost three because Blayde was distracted! Blayde is back on his feet while Reigner remains on one knee… SNAP DDT! Blayde remains in control of his match. But he’s not going for the cover, Nick, he’s regaining his composure again here. It looks like Blayde is going up to the top!

Nick Angel: DIVING ELBOW! REIGNER ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!

Kawajai: Well it looks like Blayde is the one who miscalculated this time, Noah rolls out of the way of that huge elbow just in the nick of time and now he is trying to recover and get back to his vertical base to try and get some offense off in this matchup. Noah Reigner is using the ropes to get back on his feet now as Jackson Blayde is sat in the corner trying to get back to his feet using the ropes for leverage as well. Noah sees that Blayde is vulnerable here… RUNNING DOUBLE KNEES to Blayde connects as he finally gets some momentum going here!

Nick Angel: The crowd is louder than they’ve been the entire matchup here, Kawa, as Jackson Blayde is now on his knees trying to stand back up but he’s dazed and confused. Noah Reigner with a HUGE KICK to the chest of Blayde… ANOTHER huge kick! AND ANOTHER! The crowd is reacting to each kick here!

Kawajai: The crowd is loving this… A stiff forearm right to the chin of Jackson Blayde. Noah Reigner runs off the ropes… NO! BLAYDE CATCHES HIM! GRAPEVINE REAR NAKED CHOKE!

Nick Angel: WOW! Blayde knew what was coming and prepared for it, catching those big arms right around Reigner’s neck. He’s got that choke locked in now! This could be the end of this match with Reigner falling out of consciousness due to the pressure of this coke from Jackson Blayde.

Kawajai: Noah Reigner is struggling but it looks like he’s losing the ability to fight out of this. The referee is checking Noah to see if he’s going to be able to continue in this match. Dubian is on the outside pounding the mat, getting this sold-out crowd fired up… they want Noah Reigner to get out of this…

Nick Angel: Noah Reigner grabs a finger of Blayde’s… AND SNAPS IT! Did you hear that Kawa?!

Kawajai: I’ve never seen a man get out of a chokehold that way, but Jackson Blayde lost his grip immediately and now he’s holding his fingers as Noah Reigner tries to regain his breath as he holds his throat in pain from the pressure of that choke. The crowd clearly wants Noah Reigner to get back on his feet before Blayde does, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to be the case. Blayde is finally back to his vertical base but he’s holding the ropes… Noah Reigner is now back on his feet…

Nick Angel: Noah Reigner… HE RUNS TOWARDS BLAYDE… NO! Blayde ducked and pulled the ropes down and Noah Reigner went flying to the outside, knocking into Devan Dubian in the process!

Kawajai: Well, Dubian isn’t fazed by it but it looks like Noah Reigner is feeling the effects of that spill to the outside. Jackson Blayde is back to his feet but it looks like he’s climbing the top rope… as Noah Reigner is on his knees on the outside. JACKSON BLAYDE CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE! He signals for Noah Reigner to get up as Dubian looks on from the background. It looks like even Lethal Consequences is amazed that Blayde is thinking about this!

Nick Angel: Oh! Look at this! Blayde steps down from the top rope slowly and wags his finger at the crowd. They’re all booing! They thought he was going to jump to the outside, look at these idiots!

Kawajai: Well this crowd thought they were going to see a VERY high risk move but Blayde was merely taunting them. Blayde goes to the outside now, throwing Noah Reigner back into the ring once again – he wants to keep this matchup in between these ropes and avoid any outside involvement from Dubian, it seems to me. Blayde puts Noah Reigner’s into a DDT position… NO! Noah Reigner elbows Blayde in his ribs, he does it again and Blayde loses his grip and backs off… WOLFE’S BLOOD! That ripcord jumping knee strike hits Blayde where it hurts, right in the face!

ONE!

TWO!!

Nick Angel: YES! JACKSON BLAYDE KICKS OUT OF THAT WOLFE’S BLOOD! HE’S STILL ALIVE!

Kawajai: Huge kick out from Blayde as that knee-strike could’ve easily ended this match, Nick! Everytime Noah Reigner has tried to get some offense in during this match, Jackson Blayde has stopped him right in his tracks and this could lead to some huge momentum for REIGNER… KILL SHOT!

Nick Angel: NO! BLAYDE MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! A right hand to Noah Reigner and Noah Reigner delivers a right hand back… A SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE by Blayde, but Noah Reigner ducks! A forearm attempt by Reigner but Blayde blocks it! And a kick to the gut on Noah Reigner from Blayde… Blayde goes for a clothesline, but Noah Reigner ducks yet again, what a series of counters here!

Kawajai: Blayde turns around… ROGUE CUTTER: REDUX ONTO BLAYDE! LOOK AT THE QUICKNESS FROM NOAH REIGNER! LIGHTNING FAST. Blayde is hurt here, he’s trying to crawl away… he grabs onto the bottom rope but Noah Reigner is sizing him up here… OHHHHHH!

Nick Angel: KILL SHOT! KILL SHOT! THE PLACE ERUPTS!

ONE!

TWO!

THREEEE!

Kawajai: A KILLSHOT WINS IT FOR THE ASSAULT RIFLE NOAH REIGNER!

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…. NOAHHHH REIGNERRRRR!

Kawajai: Wow, what a matchup, Blayde had control throughout this matchup and kept putting a stop to any momentum Noah Reigner was gaining. In the end, though, Blayde couldn’t put Reigner away and Noah Reigner picked up the victory with that huge running knee to the head.

Nick Angel: Well last week The Enterprise picked up the victory but this week Noah Reigner evens the score.

Kawajai: Blayde and LC look on as they walk to the back as Noah Reigner has his hand raised by Devan Dubian… these men are now looking forward to Territorial Invasion! We’ll be right back, ladies and gentleman!

(Commercial Break)

(Voltage comes back on air as “Odee” by A Boogie hits to a huge pop as Chris Elite makes his way out to the ring.)

Kawajai: The former WHC has arrived! Last week was not the best of weeks for Chris Elite as he was met with an attack at the hands of his former, and I guess now once again current rival Malcolm Jones and his partner Astraea!

Nick Angel: Let’s hope Chris is more prepared this week..

(Chris enters the ring as the music ends and he begins speaking)

Chris: Last week Malc did what Malc does best. Outnumbers me because he can’t do it by myself. He could never in his life fuck with me one on one and time an time again it is proven. I can’t even be mad at slime anymore you get it how you live I guess. We saw how this story plays out before, Malcolm gets his cheap shots in leading up to the big match, then Chris wins the big match and history only remembers the big match. So I’ll show up when it matters. I didn’t come out here to ponder about Malcolm or his dicksucking girlfriend though, I came out here to invite a very special guest. A legend, a goat, the BEST talent on Empire, my tag team partner and Brooklyn’s own…. the Unified Women’s World Champion…. STEPHANIE MATSUDA!

(“Glory Bridge” by Chief Keef & A Boogie hits to boos as Drillmatic make their way up the ramp. An unexpected and shocked Chris Elite looks on with an annoyed expression as they smugly enter the ring surrounding Chris.)

Malcolm: What was you saying?

Chris: Which part? The part about inviting Cloud or the part about not wanting to talk about you and your dicksucking girlfriend?

Kawajai: AND ONCE AGAIN DRILLMATIC START POUNDING ON CHRIS!!!!! NO TIME WASTED!!! UNLEASHING A BUNCH OF STOMPS ONT-

(“Kill Jill (Cloudy Remix)” by Archie & Sizzle hits to a big pop as Cloud comes running down the ramp and Drillmatic stops attacking Chris to divert their attention towards her, she stands on top of the ring but doesn’t go through the ropes as she is outnumbered and Drillmatic with their backs turned to Chris are begging her to enter.)

Kawajai: BUT WAIT!!!!! LOW BLOW TO MJ!!!! CHRIS GETS REVENGE ON MJ WITH A LOWBLOW WITH HIS BACK TURNED!!! HOPEFULLY ASTRAEA HATES THE PROSPECT OF HAVING CHILDREN BECAUSE I DON’T SEE MALCOLM BEING ABLE TO REPRODUCE AFTER THAT ONE! ASTRAEA TRIES TO TEND TO THE LAID OUT MALCOLM BUT SHE NOW FINDS HERSELF OUTNUMBERED AS CLOUD ENTERS THE RING… AND BROOKLYN’S FINEST ARE NOW LAYING WASTE TO ASTRAEA JORDAN!!! CLOUD LIFTS ASTRAEA UP….. CLOUD CITY!!!!! THE SUPLEX CONNECTS!!! BUT THAT ISN’T IT…. CHRIS ELITE GOES TO THE TOP ROPE…. YOU GOTTA LOVE IT!!!! 630 SENTON CONNECTS ONTO ASTRAEA! BROOKLYN’S FINEST GETS THE LAST LAUGH THIS WEEK!

(“Odee” picks back up as Chris Elit & Cloud dap each other up and leave up the ramp, as a barely recovering MJ tries to tend to the laid out Astraea Jordan in the ring.)

Nick Angel: Drillmatic got a taste of their own medicine this week, but it’s not going to be as simple as sneak attacks and outnumbering for either side come Territorial Invasion, it’s put up or shut up in that ring. Will Drillmatic overcome what has been the biggest obstacles in their careers so far? Or will Brooklyn’s Finest continue to display their superiority over the duo? Only one way to find out.. LIVE on the EAW Network!

(Highlights of Voltage’s opening segment play)

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

( ‘The 4th Dimension’ is the first song to hit the P.A., and with it comes out Lars Grier. Lars is pure business as he walks toward the ring, not taking his eyes off of the battleground for this evening.)

Bella Braxton: First, from Cincinnati, Ohio. Weighing in at Two-Hundred and Sixty Five pounds .. he is “The Crooked” LARS GRIER!

(Lars was posed on the ropes, arms in the air with a roar out to the crowd.)

Angel: There he is, the challenger for Andrea Valentine’s Openweight Championship. We’re a week away from Territorial Invasion, and he has a big opportunity to win the championship there.

Kawajai: While that’s true – tonight he has a big mountain in front of him. He’s facing the current World Heavyweight Champion, Rex McAllister. If he’s too focused on Andrea, he could lose sight of his opponent tonight, and that won’t end very well for him.

Angel: But we know Lars better than that, and we know he’s not going to think past Rex tonight. Lars is always prepared for the person directly in front of him. Always ready to send a message to the next. And if he’s successful, it will be a big message!

(Lars’ theme song faded right into ‘Still Unbroken’ by Lynyrd Skynyrd. The crowds response turned into a massive roar of approval when the champion walks out onto the stage. He’s all smiles as he pats the championship before making his way down.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent .. From Sea Isle, New Jersey – weighing in at Two-Hundred and Thirty Eight pounds .. he is the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION …. REX MCALLISTER!

Kawajai: The World Heavyweight champion getting a loud ovation from the crowd tonight. And just like Lars, Rex has a big match coming up next week where he leads team Voltage in the classic War Games match. He will be joining MarrKade to face the 1 Percent, Jaded Wolfe Hearts and team Showdown.

Angel: A lot at stake in that match, specifically brand supremacy. Rex is as dominant a champion as anyone, so I feel that Voltage is in good hands with him. But like we discussed with Lars, Rex can’t afford to overlook his opponent. Both men know that.

Kawajai: And I don’t think either man is going to do that. Look at them, they both seem focused. Lars hasn’t taken his eyes off of Rex since he emerged from the back, and Rex’s smile is gone as he turns his attention to Lars in the ring.

(Climbing into the ring, Rex handed his championship to the referee before taking his corner and stretching. Lars remained motionless on his side, his eyes locked on Rex.)

DING, DING, DING!

Kawajai: And there’s the bell. Both men move out of their corners and meet in the middle of the ring.

Angel: The two trade words — HUGE RIGHT HAND by Lars that caught Rex off guard. Rex firing back with one of his own and the two heavyweights throwing down right now. Back and forth… until Lars with one, then quickly hitting him with another. That one looked like it knocked Rex loopy.

Kawajai: Turning around, Lars hits the ropes – charging – SPEAR! BROKEN BEAK..

Angel: NO! Rex side stepped that! Lars on his hands and knees… KNEE TO THE FACE. Ouch. That smack echoed through the arena. But Lars is almost immediately back up to his feet.

Kawakai: Rex fires forearm strikes to Lars, one after another hitting Lars in the jaw. Now he brings up his knee suddenly into Lars’ stomach, doubling him over. Rex is giving up a few pounds, but that doesn’t seem to be intimidating him at all. Not backing down from the bigger Lars, he takes him down with a snapmare before following with an immediate whipping neckbreaker! Lars holding his neck in pain. Rex with the cover!

(One! Tw— NO)

Angel: Powerful kickout by Lars before the two. Lars quickly back to his feet now and Rex is firing away with more forearm shivers that don’t connect. Lars’ guard us up and he’s successfully blocking them. Rex reaches forward and grabs him in a clinch..

Kawajai: Lars pushes him off to the ropes. Rex comes back and BAM! Hard forearm that staggers Lars. Rex is looking very impressive right now, hitting Lars with a quick Belly-to-Belly suplex – driving him into the mat. But he doesn’t go for the cover?

Angel: No. Rex immediately moves into position to apply a grounded sleeper hold. His arm is locked tightly around Lars’ throat and his legs grapevined around his body. Is this it for Lars? He unsuccessfully tried to fight out of it, but the more he struggled the tighter the sleeper sank in. Senior official is in there to check on Lars, asking if he’s going to submit. No response.. Arm check, DROP!

Kawajai: WAIT! Lars furiously shaking. Adrenaline coursing through his veins now as he POWERS himself up, pushing up from his hands and knees. Rex still with the sleeper locked in tight. Lars standing up fully and powerfully pushing himself back into the corner. Still Rex doesn’t release the sleeper. He is legitimately trying to put Lars out.

Angel: Rush out of the corner and Lars falls back – slamming Rex onto the mat! He’s released the sleeper after absorbing that impact. Wow. Lars rolls up to his knees and lands a MASSIVE right hand across Rex’s face. Rex up to his knees then his feet. KNEE STRIKE! NO! Lars blocks it and sweeps out the leg.

Kawajai: Eesh! Rex’s face smacked off of the mat after that sweep. Lars is back up now, a little winded after that sleeper hold. Rex is pushing himself back up – but Lars shoves him into the corner, immediately following him in. OH RAPID FIRE PUNCHES WHILE REX IS IN THE CORNER. One after another the punches land. Harder and harder they become. Rex finally staggers out of the corner and drops to the mat. I’m surprised he could even take one of them, many others would have dropped after the first.

Angel: Rex is a fighter though! Look at him, already climbing to his feet. Lars follows the champion, grabbing him by the hair to keep him steady as he aims another loaded right fist to his jaw. Rex drops to a knee, but pushes himself up almost immediately. Lars doesn’t look happy.

Kawajai: Not at all. He turns to hit the ropes and comes back – ENZIGURI BY REX! That stopped Lars DEAD in his tracks.

Angel: MAN! I’m not sure where Rex got the sudden jolt of energy to do that, but whatever Lars had planned is out of the window now.

Kawajai: Lars’ momentum stopped suddenly. He’s taking a moment to shake that one off. Rex is back up to his feet with a stiff kick to the stomach. .. Arms hooked … BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Did you see that he stalled for a moment there before dropping Lars?

Angel: Kip up! Showing that the champ has reserves of energy. That’s why he’s a two-time World champion. Not even Lars’ powerful strikes could put Rex down as quickly as they would someone else. .. Lars rolling onto his side now, pushing himself up to a knee .. Rex charging in for a running kick ..

Kawajai: Lars ducks that! Grabbing him and rolling him up in a school boy..

(One! Tw–)

Kawajai: WAIT! LARS LIFTS REX UP AND … POWERBOMB! POWERBOMB FROM THE SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP! WHAT POWER!

Angel: Ohmygod! Rex immediately rolling over onto his stomach to prevent the cover, but…how is he not out of it after that huge powerbomb?

Kawajai: I don’t know, but Lars DRIVES his knee into the rib cage of Rex. And again! … And again! Lars has snapped, he has that pissed off look in his eye. He grabs Rex by the hair and pulls him up to his feet. BAM! YAKUZA KICK! Almost taking the champions head off. And he immediately follows that up with a stinger splash after Rex used the ropes in the corner to pull himself up!

Angel: The momentum of this match has quickly been taken away from the champion. Lars doesn’t let Rex out of the corner, instead he gives him one more stiff right hand and lifts him up to the top rope. What’s he thinking here?

Kawajai: Lars climbs up with him, front facelock applied. Is he going for a superplex, maybe? Lars is willing to pull out all of the stops here. Grabbing Rex by the tights.. LIFTING! NO! Rex locks himself to the top rope and blocks it. Escaping the front face lock and hitting Lars with a stiff forearm, knocking him off of the ropes.

Angel: Lars lands on his feet and looks up.. REX FLIES OFF OF THE ROPES WITH A DIVING KNEE TO LARS’ HEAD!

(Both men are down, recovering, after that diving strike from Rex. The crowd popped after that and are mostly standing now.)

Angel: What a move from Rex. Unusual to see the champion take to the skies like that, but it worked to his advantage this time.

Kawajai: Both Lars and Rex now taking a few moments before pulling themselves together. Each of them fighting hard to get the edge over the other. Using the ropes, they both pull themselves up to their feet. Rex is up first, eyes on Lars. Lars is up.. But…

Angel: Look at the ramp! It’s Andrea Valentine. The Openweight Champion is here and she is slowly making her way down to the ring.

Kawajai: Her eyes are focused only on Lars. She’s coming out here to play mindgames with her TI opponent.

Angel: She’s stopped and … now the JADED WOLFE HEARTS ARE HERE! Tyler, Sienna and Kassidy all appear on the stage and join Andrea on the ramp. What is going on here?!

Kawajai: The four Empire wrestlers have stopped right in front of the ring. Lars and Rex are both to their feet, and now they stand ready in the ring.

Angel: Wait, wait! Look!

(From one side of the arena, the members of team Showdown: Damon Diesel, and Shane Gates hop over the barrier – followed by Diamond Cage. From the opposite side emerge the 1% representing Dynasty – Theron Nikolas, DEDEDE and Jack Ripley. The ring is surrounded now by all of the combatants for the War Games match, plus Andrea Valentine.)

Angel: What is going on here?! None of these people belong here and they have Rex and Lars surrounded.

Kawajai: In a sight I thought we would never see, Rex and Lars are back to back – ready for this to go down. They’re not going down without a fight, I guarantee that.

Angel: It’s not going to be much of a fight. That’s ten people against two.

(The 1% climb onto one side of the apron. Team Showdown onto the other, and the Jaded Wolfe Hearts with Andrea on the other. Three sides of the ring now occupied by every other brand. Rex and Lars are not backing down, though. This is their ring. This is Voltage!)

Kawajai: NOT FOR LONG! FROM THE CROWD RIGHT BEHIND US COME CHARLIE MARR AND DARYL KINKADE! SLIDING INTO THE RING AND NOW STANDING WITH LARS GRIER AND REX MCALLISTER!

Angel: THE SIDES ARE EVEN! MARRKADE OUT TO HELP THEIR WAR GAMES PARTNER AND LARS!

Kawajai: All four ready to go! Begging the other teams to enter the ring. It looks like we’re going to get a preview of War Games and Territorial Invasion right here on Voltage!

(The 1% are the first one’s to enter!)

Kawajai: THERON, DEDEDE AND RIPLEY ENTER THE RING AND ARE MET BY THE FOUR MEMBERS OF VOLTAGE.

Angel: ALL OF THEM TRADING STRIKES!

Kawajai: CAGE DIESEL AND GATES INTO THE RING NOW, ATTACKING THE VOLTAGE TEAM FROM BEHIND! CAGE GOING RIGHT AFTER MCALLISTER, TAKING HIM DOWN WITH A CHOP BLOCK. MARR AND KINKADE FIGHTING OFF RIPLEY AND THERON ONLY TO BE BLINDSIDED BY GATES AND DIESEL!

Angel: AND HERE COME THE EMPIRE FIGHTERS! ANDREA TAKING DOWN LARS WITH A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN AND MOUNTING HIM WITH PUNCHES. SIENNA AND KASSIDY JOIN THE FRAY AGAINST THE OTHER TEAMS AND TYLER DROPKICKS CAGE INTO THE CORNER!

Kawajai: MCALLISTER GRABBING WOLFE AND PUTTING HER DOWN WITH A QUICK HALF-AND-HALF SUPLEX BUT WOLFE IS BACK UP QUICKLY, DRAGON SUPLEX ONTO MCALLISTER! DEDEDE THOUGH, OUT OF NOWHERE, WITH HIS GRAND SLAM ONTO WOLFE!

Angel: SIENNA AND KASSIDY QUICKLY MOVE AND BOTH TAKE DOWN DEDEDE WITH A DOUBLE SPEAR AFTER WOLFE WAS PLANTED. MARR AND KINKADE BATTLE BACK, SENDING DIESEL AND GATES OUT OF THE RING FIRST BEFORE TURNING TO FIGHT OFF RIPLEY AND THERON!

Kawajai: EVERY OFFICIAL AND SECURITY HAS POURED OUT OF THE BACKSTAGE AREA TO TRY AND STOP THIS CHAOS

Angel: CAGE EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER, MURDER-DEATH-KILL ONTO MCALLISTER! KASSIDY WITH NORVINA LIGHTS ONTO GRIER! KINKADE WITH A TOPE CON HILO TO THE OUTSIDE TAKING OUT DIESEL AND GATES!!

Kawajai: CAGE FINALLY ROLLS OUT OF THE RING. SIENNA AND KASSIDY PULL TYLER AND ANDREA AWAY. RIPLEY, THERON AND DEDEDE HAVE ALL MOVED OUT OF THE RING AS WELL.

Angel: Kinkade rolls back into the ring and, personal feelings aside, all of the Voltage members help one another up to their feet and they stand tall in the ring. Ready for more.

Kawajai: Officials surround them and security is blocking every other team from entering the ring. War Games is going to be utter chaos!!

(The 1% and Team Showdown begrudgingly exit through the crowd. Jaded Wolfe Hearts and Andrea Valentine exit by walk backward up the ramp.)

Kawajai: That’s all we have for tonight but as you can see, the stage is set for Territorial Invasion. Only one team will be able to stand tall when it is all said and done.
