(EAW intro plays.)
(As always, a recap from last week’s episode of Sunday Night Voltage is seen: The night starts off with Chris Elite making his way to the ring and demanding his EAW World Championship shot, saying Justin Windgate should be nowhere near the World Title picture. Justin comes out afterwards, questioning why he deserves anything in the first place. Captain Charisma finally comes out afterwards looking to solve the problem, but he’s interrupted by New Eden as well. The problem is solved when Minerva offers Chris a National Elite Title shot, which Chris accepts. Then confirming Drake King and Justin Windgate for the EAW World Championship at Bloodsport. Shane Gates is then met by a woman named Elizabeth, who claims that Lizzie (destroyed at Pain For Pride) is still alive. She manages to make an alliance with Shane, to help end Lizzie before she begins to harm people once again. Alex Myers and Mary S. Atlas fight in the first match of the night for New Breed Championship contention, which is won by Alex after Holly Arrow interferes and costs Mary her opportunity. Holly then cuts a promo challenging Mary to Bloodsport, which Mary accepts as well. Donovan Duke cuts a promo focusing his sights on Bloodsport, putting up an open challenge for Bloodsport and even putting his 24/7 Contract on the line as well. That is accepted by Danny Tanner leaving Donovan absolutely baffled, but he still accepts it, sending a warning to Danny in the process. Shane Gates and Lucas Johnson have a match to follow up, Shane looks close to winning but is interrupted by Lizzie appearing and disappearing surprisingly leaving Lucas to take advantage and beat Shane for the victory. Miku Sakai has an interview talking about her frustrations before she’s interrupted this time by Candice Blair who has had enough. After Candice slaps Miku, Miku has had enough leading into a brawl which ends with her crushing Candice’s face in and making her cough up blood. Myles then cuts a promo in the ring calling out Jamie O’Hara after something said last week caught his eye. Jamie ultimately comes out, leading to a back and forth between the two of them. After Myles takes a shot at his son, Jamie snaps and attacks Myles, leaving him knocked out at the center of the ring. Candice Blair, still hurting from the attack earlier, goes up against Donovan Duke. Fighting in an intense back and forth, in the end it’s Donovan that manages to come out on top when it’s all said and done. An interview by Sofia Clarke is conducted for Jake Smith talking about how Season 15 is going to be his Season, before suddenly his shoulder is brushed by Raven Roberts. Jake demands an apology but manages to successfully piss off Raven who pins him to the wall and sends a warning towards him. Ryan Wilson confronts Lucas Johnson who tells him to relax and have a talk with him. He says rather than giving him another loss at his hand, he should make the 24/7 Contract match a three way, which Lucas seems to be happy to look towards. Jake Smith is once again back as he finds himself in action against Chris Elite, but despite his best attempts, Chris manages to come out on top in the end. Ms. Extreme has a conversation with Candice Blair after, unintentionally managing to persuade Candice to challenge Miku the week after to a match at Bloodsport. Ms. Extreme is then confronted by Drake King who is only looking to check on her but she simply just does not want his concern. Drake, then meeting Minerva, tells her to make sure that Myles is ready and that a loss tonight against Justin Windgate is not something that can be afforded. Myles and Justin Windgate then have that match against one another, which Justin wins swiftly with a victory roll. Afterwards New Eden absolutely maul Justin, ending with them standing on top of the World Title contender to end it. Danny Tanner then has a conversation with The Woogieman which is interrupted by a pissed off Shane Gates after what happened last week, but Danny stands up for himself this time, headbutting him and leaving him embarrassed. Jamie O’Hara then has his first match back on Voltage facing a formidable opponent in Raven Roberts. When it’s all said and done, Jamie manages to come out on top and get the victory. Both Ms. Extreme and Hikari Kanno then spin the Bloodsport wheel to determine the stipulation for their Bloodsport match, which is revealed to be a Scaffold Match. It ends in a brawl where Hikari manages to snip off a bit of Ms. Extreme’s hair standing on top in the end. And in the main event, a Champion versus Champion match is underway between Drake King and Ryan Wilson. In a bloody and excellent match in itself, Drake manages to come out on top as that’s the last shot seen before the recap ends.)
(“33rd Blakk Glass” by Sosmula and ZillaKami blasts through the speakers of the American Airlines Arena while pyro shoots out from the stage getting the EAW Universe in attendance hyped up. The camera pans around to show the excited crowd, taking a good look at the atmosphere tonight before transitioning over to the commentary table. Rich Russillo, James Peters, and Persephone are seen as always while the camera transitions over to them.)
Rich Russillo: Ladies and gentlemen welcome tonight to SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE!
James Peters: What a time to be a fan of EAW right? With Midsummer Massacre on the horizon for the Showdown brand, we have three weeks left until Voltage’s first Free-Per-View of the Season, Bloodsport! But let’s focus on the present moment and talk about the stacked matches that we have tonight, including the match between Hikari Kanno and Jake Smith in our main event of the night!
Persephone: Yeah the smaller than average pre-pubescent teen goes up against that disgusting excuse of a woman, woo. Quite frankly I am not excited for Voltage this week, this card seems more depressing than ever. Like I care about Drake King, like I even knew who Justin Windgate was. This is all just really sad and I hope brighter days are upon us. But you know what? Whatever, let’s just get this show over with.
(‘Diva’ by Beyoncé hits while the camera transitions from the commentary table towards the stage. The crowd cheers loudly upon seeing Candice Blair make her way out to the stage. Despite what happened last week she still manages to muster out a smile upon standing on the stage, with bruises tattered all over her face. She looks around for a moment before making her way down the ramp and towards the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing at this time… CANDICE BLAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: I think we all know what happened last week involving Candice Blair. Candice interrupted Miku Sakai’s interview during the show and looked to put an end to her tirade, instead telling her to focus on her alcohol addiction. Instead that led to a brawl which ended in Miku squishing Candice’s head and leaving her splayed out on the floor. Which might’ve been the reason why she lost to Donovan Duke last week.
James Peters: Well she looks to have recovered, but at the same time she looks very unhappy in the process. She seems to have a few things to get off her chest and it’s going to be very interesting to see what she has to say.
Persephone: I hope her vocal cords were actually damaged and she just doesn’t say anything at all. They were right anyways, she does have a very annoying high pitched voice and it pisses me off. But in all honesty a lot of things piss me off. Like sitting here with both of you.
(Candice makes her way up the steel steps and onto the apron, before entering into the ring. She makes her way towards the center of the ring, spreading her arms out, before turning around and taking a microphone from ringside. The crowd continues to cheer for Candice while she makes her way back towards the center of the ring. ‘Diva’ from there fades out while Candice looks around for a moment. She nods her head before she begins to speak.)
Candice Blair: I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel like enough is enough; can you blame me? Here I was, heading into the new Season as a pop sensation! Working on my new album and of course, continuing my work as an activist. You know, Candice Blair doing Candice Blair things. All in all, it was going great for me in my role as the most interesting Ava. But with being a celebrity and being a star, of course you’re going to get your haters. You’re going to get those people that despise you even being there, and that’s Miku Sakai. Who got pissy after I interrupted her interview and of course had to vent all that post Pain For Pride bitterness and alcoholic rage on me. That’s what happened this week and the week before, and that’s why I’m out here. There’s a lot of reasons that Miku would have snapped at me the way she did last week after I stepped up to defend my family name. But the only logical reason that I can truly think about, is her budding alcoholism. That didn’t come out of nowhere did it? Last I checked while IDOL-GUN reigned as Unified Tag Team Champions I didn’t see Miku chugging down bottles of alcohol before her matches. You want to know why? Because alcoholism is her way to cope with the fact that Hikari Kanno and Miku Sakai, mostly Miku, have fallen and she no longer has a purpose. Believe me, I still think the only purpose Ms. Extreme versus Hikari Kanno serves is to give Camille a defense under her belt, but at least Hikari got that opportunity. What can Miku really do heading into the first Free-Per-View of the Season other than stir up trouble? As much as she wants to believe otherwise through constant denial, Miku wishes she was Candice Blair; the very definition of a cross-over star. She wishes she was a future Grammy award winning singer and an activist like I am. Because of that, I’m going to show her who’s the boss come Bloodsport. Because as much as I’ve tried to help her, she needs to realize that it was a mistake getting on my bad side. Now there’s-
(‘Age-Age Money’ by LADYBABY plays up to loud boos from the crowd while Miku Sakai makes her way down the stage. She’s trying to hold in her laughter while she makes her way down the ramp, snickering every once in a while when she makes eye contact with Candice. Candice inside of the ring seems annoyed that Miku would interrupt her promo, but Miku doesn’t seem to give a care in the world for that. Miku makes her way up the steps and into the ring, before breaking down into hysterical laughter. She gives herself a moment to breathe while Candice looks to her in disappointment. ‘Age-Age Money’ fades out while Miku collects herself and dusts herself off. She sighs for a moment before looking towards Candice fully.)
Miku Sakai: God you’re such a cunt, do you think you’re my mother or something?! Fuck… you’re so irritating it baffles me that your family can actually tolerate your constant dickriding and that high-pitched noise you call a voice. If you ask me, I think I was doing you justice when I crushed your face in. You should’ve prayed that you were unable to speak again because you’re so fucking ANNOYING! Why don’t you just leave me the fuck alone and do your own thing, make your fucking music or whatever why does this have to involve me?! Let me live and continue to do whatever the hell I want, none of this needs to be your concern you fucking shit for brained, cum infested bitch. Here’s some actual good advice, something that you seem incapable of actually giving, you should just kill yourself. This would make the locker room a much better place, it’s not like we’re going to lose much in the first place. If you don’t pull the trigger though, I’ll be happy to pull the trigger come Bloodsport. In fact, I hope that when we spin that stupid wheel that we just have a shotgun on a pole match or something. It would make this much easier rather than forcing you to cooperate and simply wasting my fucking time.
(The crowd continues to boo Miku, Candice rolling her eyes in the process.)
Candice Blair: 🙄 Look, I’ve had enough of your games. You can say whatever you want, but the problems in your life are all because of you. I’ve only been trying to help you, trying to turn you away from your life of alcoholism so you don’t end up in a lower point than what you’re already at. You can say whatever you want, but sooner or later you’ll begin to realize that I was right. At Bloodsport you are going to be humbled, and I’m going to make sure it happens at my hands.
(Candice drops her microphone down on the ground while ‘Diva’ once again plays up. She makes her way out of the ring while Miku looks to be absolutely fuming at this point, mouthing “fucking bitch” before shaking the ropes. Candice begins to make her way up the ramp, looking towards her with a deadpan look on her face. The Bloodsport opponents stare at one another for a moment, which is the last shot seen before Voltage then fades out to the first commercial break of the night.)
(Promotional ad for Miku Sakai versus Candice Blair at Bloodsport.)
(As the camera fades to ringside for the first match of the show, the camera pans to show Bella Braxton standing in the center of the Voltage ring, holding an EAW-branded microphone.)
Bella Braxton: This match is scheduled for one fall…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Bad Man’ by Blues Saraceno hits the speakers, as Kirk Redwood walks out of the curtains, brushing his hair back. He shows his fists to the camera, with the name “FUJI” written across his right knuckles and “WARA” across the left. He then begins to walk down the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… hailing from Boston Massachusetts, weighing in at 210 pounds… KIIIIIRK REEEDWOOOOOD!!!
James Peters: Tonight, in our first bout, we see two brand-new professional wrestlers here in EAW squaring off in their very first matchup! Both of these two have a totally different background in wrestling, but let’s start off with Kirk!
Rich Russillo: Oh, you handed me a note… uhhh… So he’s a fighter from Boston… yeah I’m not reading this. From the looks of things, he’s pretty tough, and soon we’ll see exactly what he’s all about! Any comments, Persephone?
Rich Russillo: Amazing!
(Kirk Redwood hops onto the apron, before entering the ring, as he then climbs to the top turnbuckles. He shows the crowd his fists, before hopping down into the ring. His theme song is then replaced by ‘Somewhere I Belong [AEON REMIX]’ by Linkin Park as his opponent begins to walk out of the curtains. Slowly approaching the ring, Japan’s own Fujiwara would lightly pace his way to the ring, staring a hole through his opponent.)
Bella Braxton: And introducing his opponent… Hailing from Tamana, Kumamoto, Japan… weighing in at 194 pounds… THE ONE KICK MAN…. FUUUJIIIIWARAAAA!!!
James Peters: As you heard, this man is a Japanese wrestler, but as we’ve learned, he’s been all around the world. He’s had a pretty interesting history, and you can always look it up if you want to know; but one key part is that he’s blacklisted from wrestling in Mexico after refusing to relinquish his motorbike to an opponent in defeat. That tells you a lot about this man!
Rich Russillo: :lupe: Oh no. Don’t tell me he’s a degenerate. We know what Shane Gates is like, but hopefully it was just something else. Regardless, that attitude IS something that can help with success, and as long as it’s not crazy, it’s totally fine!
(Fujiwara hops onto the apron, before entering the ring, as he extends his arms and gets in the face of his opponent. He whispers to him, saying he’s guaranteed to win, before stepping back.)
Kirk Redwood: (off-mic) You’re not winning shit.
Fujiwara: (off-mic) Just wait.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: The bell has rung as the first match of the night has begun; and we’re about to see the debut of two fresh superstars! On a world tour, we have Fujiwara, and on a mission to be the best fighter in the world, we have Kirk Redwood, and tonight, they’ll get a boost on their journey! But the question is, which one will it be that comes out on top? Fujiwara and Kirk circle the ring, before entering a lockup! After a back and forth struggle, Kirk Redwood quickly transitions into a wristlock!
Rich Russillo: Applying pressure, he places that palm on Fujiwara’s elbow, before hitting a forearm straight to it! Fujiwara pulls his arm back, before Kirk Redwood locks in a headlock; wearing his opponent down! Fujiwara begins to charge towards the ropes, before forcing Kirk to rebound off of them! Leapfrog over Kirk! He then ducks down underneath him! Fujiwara goes for a hurricanrana- but Kirk ducks underneath and continues to run the ropes!
James Peters: However Fujiwara also runs too, following Kirk Redwood before hitting an elbow straight to the chest! Kirk holds the chest, before Fujiwara irish whips him again! He goes for a hurricanrana, however, this time it connects! Kirk rolls forward into the corner, and Fujiwara begins to follow up! He places Kirk over the ropes, before pressing his knee right into the curvature of the back!
Rich Russillo: And this also pushes the throat right into the ropes, and unless it was Persephone? I’d hate to get choked out, so this must be really bad for Kirk right now! Fujiwara continues to push the knee, before letting go and pushing Kirk out onto the apron, draping him over the ropes, as he turns to the left and runs the ropes! Double knees- No! Kirk slips out!
James Peters: Fujiwara stops dead in his tracks as he sees Kirk slip out onto the apron, but he doesn’t get to capitalize! Kirk hits him straight in the head with a huge European Uppercut, sending him stumbling back, as he begins to plan something huge! Oh my, HE GOES FOR THE .50 CAL SPRINGBOARD SUPERMAN PUNCH- But Fujiwara rolls out of the way, and Kirk lands on his feet; surprised as to what just happened!!!
Rich Russillo: But he made a mistake, a rookie mistake, something I’d never make personally; he took his eyes off his opponent! Fujiwara rolls back to his feet before running the ropes, and hitting a Bulldog straight into the center of the ring! Kirk lands on his forehead before his body even hits the mat, and Fujiwara believes it’s enough; shooting the half and going into the cover!!
James Peters: But it’s just for a two count! Kirk Redwood gets the shoulder up just for two! Fujiwara pushes himself off the ground, as he stumbles towards his opponent, using the sole of his boot to push Kirk onto his back! He then uses it again to impale his chest, pushing his foot down into the ribs- big Kirk manages to get his hands underneath the boot! He throws the leg away, before rolling back to his feet!!!
Rich Russillo: Kirk then takes Fujiwara off his feet with a clothesline to the chest, but it’s not enough to keep him down, as he quickly gets back up; only to meet another clothesline! Again, Fujiwara gets back up, and it’s HIS turn to go for a clothesline; but Kirk ducks! Thrust kick to the head- But Fujiwara manages to duck underneath!! Fujiwars pushes Kirk by the leg, and drops to a knee… SNAP DDT FROM FUJIWARA! KIRK SPIKES ON HIS HEAD, AS FUJIWARA GOES FOR ANOTHER COVER!
James Peters: HOWEVER IT’S ANOTHER KICK OUT! KIRK GETS THE SHOULDER UP, AND FUJIWARA IS PUSHED OFF AGAIN! Fujiwara doesn’t get frustrated though, he stays calm, and gets back up again, with Kirk’s hair in hand! Fujiwara then begins to connect with some open-hand palm strikes to the side of Kirk’s head! He swings again-
Rich Russillo: BUT KIRK MANAGES TO DUCK UNDERNEATH THE ARM, BEFORE GRABBING THE OTHER ONE, INTO THE RIPCORD POSITION! HE PULLS THE ARM, BEFORE HITTING A FOREARM STRIKE ACROSS THE CHEST, STUNNING FUJIWARA, AS HE TURNS AT A 180 DEGREE ANGLE, AND NOW KIRK GRABS THE WAIST! SAITO SUPLEX RIGHT ONTO FUJIWARA’S NECK!
James Peters: THE WHIPLASH OF FUJIWARA’S BODY BOUNCES HIM ONTO HIS LEGS, BUT KIRK ISN’T DONE! HE PULLS FUJIWARA UP BY THE TRUNKS, BACK INTO THE SAITO POSITION, AND DRILLS HIM INTO THE MAT WITH A SECOND ONE! SPIKED ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! KIRK PUSHES FUJIWARA ONTO HIS BACK, BEFORE HOOKING THE LEG!
Rich Russillo: FUJIWARA WITH THE KICK OUT! He got hit with two brutal Saito Suplex’s straight into the mat, and unlike Persephone, that isn’t pretty!
James Peters: Kirk Redwood crawls to the ropes and begins to pick himself up, as Fujiwara remains on the ground! Kirk grabs Fujiwara and lifts him back up, before pushing him into the ropes! ANOTHER SAITO- NO! FUJIWARA LOCKS HIS HANDS AROUND KIRK’S WRISTS, BLOCKING HIM FROM BEING ABLE TO LIFT, AS HE PULLS HIMSELF DOWN TO THE GROUND! AND NOW, LOOK AT THIS! ASAI DDT FROM FUJIWARA- BUT KIRK CATCHES HIM! ‘DOWN TO HELL’!!!! THE RUNNING LEAPING TOMBSTONE INTO THE MAT!!! KIRK INTO THE COVER NOW!
Rich Russillo: BUT AGAIN, FUJIWARA FINDS HIS WAY OUT! LIKE ME TO PERSEPHONE, HE’S HYPER FIXATED ON HIS OPPONENT AND HE’S REFUSING TO LET UP HERE TONIGHT IN HIS DEBUT MATCH, AND HE’S HELLBENT ON COMING OUT ON TOP! IT MEANS A LOT TO HIM AS A PERFORMER, AND HE COULD BE LOOKING TO END IT, AS HE RECOVERS TO HIS FEET AND RUNS THE ROPES! ‘BLITZKRIEG BOP’! RUNNING KNEE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD- FUJIWARA DUCKS!
James Peters: THE TWO QUICKLY RETREAT BACK TO THEIR FEET, AND KIRK GOES FOR THE GUN STUN- OH! A COUNTER FROM FUJIWARA, THE SPINNING BACKFIST TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! FUJIWARA TO THE TURNBUCKLES NOW!
Rich Russillo: HOLDING ONTO HIS NECK DUE TO THAT PILEDRIVER, HE ROLLS HIS HEAD TO RECOVER, AS HE CLIMBS THE TURNBUCKLES ONE BY ONE, REACHING THE PEAK OF THE MOUNTAIN FACING AWAY FROM THE RING; HE COULD HAVE THIS DUB IN THE BAG YO!!!
Persephone: Please stop.
Rich Russillo: FUJIWARA STANDS UP, BEFORE LEAPING OFF THE TOP ROPE! THE DIVING MOONSAULT- KIRK ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY, AND FUJIWARA SOMEHOW LANDS ON HIS FEET! BUT HE’S TAKEN OFF GUARD EVER SO SLIGHTLY, AS KIRK SPRINTS TOWARDS HIM! ‘BLITZKRIE-
James Peters: OH! OH GOD! DRAGON SLEEPER! JUST AS KIRK LIFTED UP THE KNEE, FUJIWARA TWISTED HIS BODY AND MANAGED TO HOOK HIS ARM AROUND KIRK’S FACE, AND NOW THEY’RE IN THE DRAGON SLEE- NO! KIRK SOMEHOW ROLLS ONTO HIS FEET! BUT THE SPEED HE WAS TAKEN DOWN AT PROPELS HIM BACKWARDS, AS HE STUMBLES TOWARDS THE CORNER!!!
Rich Russillo: FUJIWARA SLIPS BACK TO HIS FEET AND CHARGES TOWARDS KIRK, BUT HE MEETS THE TURNBUCKLE AS KIRK SLIPS OUT ONTO THE APRON, BEFORE DRIVING HIS SHOULDER INTO FUJIWARA’S STOMACH! KIRK THEN SLINGSHOTS HIMSELF INTO THE RING-
Persephone: Oh look, more wrestling! **yawn**
James Peters: FUJIWARA MANAGES TO CATCH KIRK REDWOOD IN THE REVERSE ATOMIC DROP POSITION, AND IT CONNECTS! DROPPING HIM INTO THE KNEE, BEFORE TRANSITIONING STRAIGHT INTO THE NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! WHAT A COMBINATION; BUT HE’S NOT DONE! FUJIWARA BRIDGES OVER ONTO HIS FEET, BEFORE LIFTING KIRK ONTO HIS FEET, BEFORE TRANSITIONING INTO A FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX BRIDGE! INTO THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: BUT A KICK OUT FROM KIRK! FUJIWARA ALMOST HAD IT, BUT IT WASN’T QUITE ENOUGH; ROLLING AWAY FROM KIRK, HE PULLS HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET, AND THEN WAITS IN THE CORNER! KIRK GETS TO HIS KNEES, BEFORE FUJIWARA CONNECTS WITH THE BUZZSAW KICK-
James Peters: KIRK CATCHES THE LEG! HE CATCHES THE LEG BEFORE IT CAN FLY AT HIS HEAD, AND GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET! EXPLODES SUPLEX INTO THE MAT; THIS TIME IT’S KIRK WHO BRIDGES!!!
James Peters: BUT IT ONLY REACHES A TWO COUNT, AS FUJIWARA MANAGES TO POWER THE SHOULDER OFF THE MAT!!! LOOK IN KIRK’S HANDS, THOUGH! HE HAS THE WRIST OF FUJIWARA, AND IF MY STUDYING IS CORRECT, THIS IS GOING TO TRANSITION INTO THE BACK SUPLEX! KIRK GETS ONTO HIS FEET BEFORE PULLING FUJIWARA… IT CONNECTS! BASTARDPLEX!!!! AGAIN, INTO THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: BUT A KICK OUT!!! FUJIWARA AGAIN POWERS THE SHOULDER UP OFF THE MAT, HE’S FOR REAL DEDICATED TO THE CAUSE!!! Hmm, wonder where I’ve heard that before.
Rich Russillo: Why hello ther-
James Peters: Kirk Redwood grabs Fujiwara by the hair, and brings him up to his feet! Fuji has spaghetti arms right now, sloped down by his side, as Kirk begins to punish him for the kick out! Now he’s going to show us why he wants to be the best fighter in the world, as he begins to hit punches straight to the head! One! Another! A third! He then transitions to the gut!
Rich Russillo: But Fujiwara manages to clap back! An open hand strong style palm strike connects with Kirk’s head, and instead of the wear-down nature of Kirk’s punches, this one was DESIGNED to topple giants! The sweat flies off of Kirk’s body, before he follows through with his own! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT; AND IT TAKES FUJIWARA OFF THE GROUND!!!! IF THIS WAS JUST A FEW SECONDS PRIOR, I THINK HE’D BE STILL STANDING! THOSE SAITO’S HURT!
Kirk Redwood: (off-mic) Come on. Back up.
James Peters: BUT KIRK IS CALLING HIM TO STAND BACK ON HIS TWO FEET; AND I DON’T BELIEVE THAT TO BE A VERY EXEMPLARY DECISION! FUJIWARY SMIRKS AND PUSHES HIMSELF OFF THE GROUND, BEFORE GIVING KIRK A MIDDLE FINGER, AND OBLITERATING HIM WITH A FOREARM STRIKE TO THE JAW! KIRK STUMBLES BACKWARD JUST FOR A SPLIT SECOND, BEFORE GOING FOR ANOTHER PUNCH- FUJIWARA DUCKS!
Rich Russillo: FUJIWARA HITS A HUGE SLAP TO THE GUT, RINGING OUT INTO THE CROWD, BEFORE FOLLOWING UP WITH TWO INTERCHANGING-HAND PALM STRIKES TO THE FACE! HE GOES FOR A SPINNING BACKFIST AGAIN-
James Peters: BUT KIRK REDWOOD MANAGES TO DUCK UNDERNEATH IT AND BOUNCE BACK UP TO HIS FEET! KIRK REDWOOD WITH THE BICYCLE BOOT RIGHT TO THE JAW OF FUJIWARA, THAT SPINS HIM AROUND MOMENTARILY- BUT HE REBOUNDS WITH A PELE KICK-
Rich Russillo: AGAIN, KIRK MANAGES TO DODGE! HE SIDESTEPS THE PELE KICK, ALLOWING FUJIWARA TO LAND ON HIS KNEES, BEFORE HE CLOSES THE SEQUENCE WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE JAW!!! WAIT, HE’S NOT DONE AFTER ALL! KIRK DEADLIFTS FUJI, BEFORE PLANTING HIM INTO THE MAT WITH A HUGE DRAGON SUPLEX! INTO THE COVER ONCE MORE!
James Peters: WAIT! FUJIWARA ROLLS ONTO HIS STOMACH TO KICK OUT! HE’S HAD A SUDDEN SPARK OF ENERGY, AS HE ROLLS KIRK OFF OF HIM! THEY BOTH RECOVER… REVERSE STO!!!! ‘HELLS GATE’!!!! BUT HE’S SPENT, THERE’S NOTHING LEFT IN HIM! HE HOLDS ONTO HIS NECK, AS HE ROLLS AWAY FROM KIRK WHO IS COMPLETELY READY TO BE PINNED!
Rich Russillo: But I think Fujiwara is having some second thoughts! Because he rolls back towards Kirk, and attempts to lock in the Koji Clutch- but it fails! Kirk rolls away towards the ropes, and Fuji can’t get to him in time.
James Peters: Fujiwara wasn’t planning on those suplexes to damage his neck, so intentionally driving himself into the mat along with Kirk only gave him a whiplash effect; stopping him from finishing the match. But right now he wants to make up for lost time, as he gets back up, and stumbles toward Kirk-
Rich Russillo: BUT KIRK WITH A SLAP TO THE FACE! FUJIWARA STUMBLES BACK, AS KIRK JUST SLAPPED HIM, CLENCHING ONTO A DEBUT VICTORY! HE THEN EXITS OUT ONTO THE APRON, AND SPRINGBOARDS BACK IN… ‘.50 CAL’- FUJIWARA DODGES! KIRK LANDS ON HIS KNEES-
James Peters: BBBUZZZSAWW KICKKKKKKKKK!!!! FUJIWARA SHOOTS THE HALF!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… THE ONE KICK MAN…. FUUUUJIIIIIWAARAAAAAAA!!!!
(‘Somewhere I Belong [AEON REMIX]’ by Linkin Park hits the speakers, as Fujiwara rolls off of Kirk Redwood, before climbing back to his feet. The referee raises his arm, as he celebrates his victory in his debut match.)
James Peters: And it was Fujiwara who came out on top! After a nice back and forth match, it ended with Fujiwara shutting Kirk Redwood’s lights out, and ending with his arm raised!
Rich Russillo: I don’t know this guy yet. I don’t love him or hate him, but as long as he’s not a psycho like Shane Gates is? I’m totally fine. It’s his debut after all, he’ll either grow on me, or I’ll want him fired…
James Peters: :snoop: Again with the Shane stuff? He’s not even relevant here.
Persephone: It’s Rich Russillo, the word relevant is never included with his name.
James Peters: :wow: Well, regardless, congratulations to Fujiwara!
(As Fujiwara is seen celebrating on the turnbuckles, Voltage fades out to commercial break…)
(A commercial for “EAW: Twin Peaks” begins to play, where we see Theron Nikolas and Limmy Monaghan teaming up against the team of Sierra and Holly Arrow, who are ALSO teaming up against Kawajai and Drake King.)
(The camera cuts to Bella Braxton in the ring.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…ONE FALL!!
(‘Nothing Helps’ by ONE OK ROCK plays out Mary S. Atlas, who makes her way down to the ring, looking all business for her match tonight, however, occasionally high fiving fans on her way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first! Hailing out of St. Louis, Missouri, weighing in at 125 pounds…SHE IS MOST WANTED…MARY S. ATLAS!!
James Peters: It’s safe to say that Mary S. Atlas is all business tonight, and the reason for that is: she needs to mount some momentum.
Rich Russillo: Plain and simple, she’s looking to bounce back from the loss to Alex Myers, and I feel as if Woogieman is a catalyst for a lot of talents aiming to bounce back.
James Peters: Yeah, but Woogieman is not a competitor to be taken lightly either.
(‘Nothing Helps’ fades out and is soon replaced with ‘If Ya Smell’ By Adam Massare plays out The Woog to a legendary reaction from the crowd, who’s always happy to see him.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent! Hailing out of Jacksonville, Florida, weighing in at 260 pounds…THE WOOGIEMAN!!
James Peters: Speaking of, Woogie’s a guy with upset wins over people like Diamond Cage, an EAW Hall of Famer, who’s to say he can’t pull out another upset tonight?
Rich Russillo: No one, I mean, sometimes anyone can be beaten on any given day, perhaps this day will be Woogie’s to shine.
(Both competitors stare each other down from opposite corners as the referee signals for the bell.)
( Ding Ding Ding! )
James Peters: And Here We GO! This match is officially underway! This will be an interesting fight with The Woogieman just under a full foot over Mary who is 135 pounds lighter than her opponent!! But as we know folks it’s not about the size of the dog in the fight!
Persephone: Yeah yeah can they get to fighting already?
James Peters: Oh please Persephone, let them do their jobs.
Persephone: Their job is to fight!
James Peters: Mary and Woogie are hooking it up in the center of the ring for a clinch both of them are straining for a short moment But Woogieman Suddenly Powers Forward And SHOVES MARY WHO ENDS UP DOWN ON THE GROUND!! She looks a bit surprised but she quickly gets back to her feet shrugging off the thing quickly and goes immediately for a clinch once more! Woogie doesn’t seem to want it but he goes for it any-WAY! MARY WITH A FIREMAN’S CARRY TAKING DOWN WOOGIE WHO DIDN’T EXPECT IT! Down HE goes this time and Mary is smiling! She even extends a hand offering to help Woog back to his feet, he is hesitant to take it but he does it! Good sportsmanship from the smallest opponent helping the big man back to his F-RUNNING THRUST LARIAT BY WOOGIEMAN TAKING ATLAS DOWN!!
Rich Russillo: What are they trying to do? One up each other?
James Peters: Mary gets up quickly looking straight at her opponent throwing arrows at him.
Persephone: Don’t you mean daggers? The expression says daggers.
Rich Russillo: I don’t think it matters Perse as Mary goes to lock horns with Woogie once again this time she locked him into a headlock controlling his movement in the center of the ring! Woogie tries to get her off pushing her forward but her grip around his head is tight he isn’t going an-WAAIT!! HE GRABS HER BY THE WAIST AND TURNS THIS INTO A GERMAN SUPLEX! MARY DIDN’T EXPECT IT AND DOWN SHE GOES! BUT SHE DOESN’T LET GO OF THE HOLD! SHE IS KEEPING WOOGIE IN A SLEEPER HOLD!! Don’t Tell Me This Is How This Match Will End? No! He manages to grab hold of the ropes firmly the official having no choice but to order Mary to let go. Interesting start of the match between the two. Mary gets up getting Woog vertical as well! Punch to the face followed by a knee to the midsection and a whip into the ropes! TRIANGLE DROPKICK GETS WOOGIE DOWN! COVER!
James Peters: Woogieman with the shoulder up!
Rich Russillo: The action resumes quickly as both opponents get back on their feet! Mary whips Woog into the ropes both ducks each other and Atlas stops near the ropes. Woogieman follows suit leaping to tackle the Most Wanted but Mary evades Woog’s shoulder BUT SHE GETS CAUGHT FROM BEHIND! WOOG TRIES FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX BUT MARY is holding to the ropes which send Woog rolling to the center of the ring!
James Peters: Meanwhile, Mary turns to look at Woog who moves to attack her! He gets tripped for his efforts as she goes for a low kick to his ankle it makes him fall flat just by the low ropes and Mary takes advantage by going for a few quick elbow drops! She then picks Woog’s legs! WOAH GUILLOTINE RIGHT UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPES BY MARY!! WOOG IS HOLDING ON TO HIS THROAT COUGHING THAT MUST’VE HURT!! He is trying to get up he goes to a knee and Mary runs in grabbing an arm AND GOES FOR A RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE RIGHT AT WOOG WHO GOES DOWN!!!
Rich Russillo: If he keeps getting dished on like this he won’t be able to survive long as Mary moves on for more offensive throwing a few elbows to Woogieman before getting him up and whipping him hard into a corner. She goes for a corner superkick but she expected Woog to dodge it which he did! Mary with a rake to the eyes of Woogieman who was just about to unload a counter-response but instead gets blindly whipped into the ropes again! Mary is waiting for him with a running knee strike but Woog dodges the move! Both opponents run to opposite ropes-
James Peters: SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK BY WOOG! SEEMS LIKE HE RELIED ON INSTINCT TO THROW IN THAT MOVE!! Mary goes down! Woog goes on the offensive this is his shot as he picks Mary up rapidly and hammers her with a set of fists to the face followed by a forearm and a knee to the midsection making Atlas lean forward! To the ropes, Woog goes and runs it for A JUMPING NECK BREAKER! DOWN GOES ATLAS as any momentum she used to have seemed all but gone now!
Rich Russillo: Woogieman goes for a series of leg drops followed by a running senton before getting Mary S. Atlas to her feet and clocks her with a standing dropkick that gets Mary to step backward and into the ropes! She bounces back towards Woogie who throws in a spinning heel kick! Down goes Atlas! Woogiman with a cover!!
Rich Russillo: Not today! Mary S. Atlas with the shoulder up! Good offensive sequence! A quick-paced hard-hitting match thus far I like it!
James Peters: Both of them are throwing haymakers at each other in the center of the ring this time it’s Mary with the upper hand she is aiming high to strike at Woog hiding him hard and backing him into the ropes again! ENZUIGIRI!!!!! AND WOOGIE SWINGS OVER THE TOP ROPES AND DOWN NEAR THE BARRICADE! What A Kick By Mary Who runs to the ropes making her way towards the side where Woogie is AND WOAAAAH SUICIDE DIVE INTO A TORNADO DDT FROM THE RING TO THE OUTSIDE!!! MARY IS ON A ROLL NOW AND THE CROWD IS LOVING IT! AND SHE ISN’T DONE!
Rich Russillo: She goes to Woog, kicking him in the chest and side a few times she is going at it quickly before getting him up and whip him against the railing surrounding the ring! She backs off him but rushes back quickly WOOGIEMAN GETS A HOLD OF HER AND THROWS HER INTO THE CROWD WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!!! HOLY COW A GERMAN SUPLEX INTO THE CROWD! WOOG ROUSES UP THE CROWD OUT OF THAT MOVE!!!
Rich Russillo: LOOK OUT BEHIND HIM!!
James Peters: BUT HE DIDN’T REALIZE MARY ACTUALLY LANDED ON HER FEET!! WOOG TURNS TO FA-NINE MILES! NINE MIIIIIIIIIILES THE HELLUVA KICK RIGHT ON THE KISSER AND OVER THE RAILING BY ATLAS! HOLY CRAP EVEN WOOGIE DIDN’T SEE IT COMING AS HE HAS HIS BACK AGAINST THE APRON NOW LOOKING DAZED! MARY HIKES HERSELF ON THE RAILING What is she gonna do!? SHE LEAPS ON WOOG WHO BEGAN MOVING BEFORE HER AND SWINGS HIM INTO THE RING WITH THE MOST UNORTHODOX HURRICANRANA I’VE EVER SEEN! SHE THREW WOOG INSIDE THE RING THIS WAY AND HER ON THE APRON! Not something you see every day as Woog retreats into a corner sitting down but Mary doesn’t intend to give him a break!
Rich Russillo: She quickly goes to the opposite corner what does she have in mind as she measures herself up before rushing in a hasty dash towards Woogieman! THE STINKFACE ON THE PEOPLE’S CHAMPION!!!
James Peters: WAIT NO! WOOGIE JUST TOOK MARY DOWN, AND THERE’S THE SHARPSHOOTER!! THE SHARPSHOOTER! THE MOVE IS LOCKED IN!! MARY IS SCREAMING AND FLAILING FOR DEAR LIFE!! WOOGIEMAN APPLIES ALL OF THE PRESSURE HE CAN MUSTER WANTING FOR ATLAS TO TAP! SHE IS BENT IN SUCH A WAY HE COULD BREAK HER IN HALF!! SHE IS LOOKING ALL OVER! LEFT-RIGHT SHE IS CLAWING TRYING TO GET TO THE ROPES!! THE OFFICIAL IS ASKING HER IF SHE WANTS TO GIVE UP!
Mary S. Atlas: (off-mic) NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
Persephone: Fucking Banshee. JUST QUIT ALREADY!!!
Rich Russillo: Look At Mary She is Powering Her Way Towards The Ropes! WOOGIEMAN DOESN’T BELIEVE IT! SHE IS ABOUT TO GRAB ONTO THE ROPES AND HE REELS HER BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! IT’S GOTTA BE OVER NOW! HOW MUCH IS SHE WILLING TO TAKE IN ORDER TO TRY AND WIN THIS THING??? What is She… She turns herself as she looks at Woogie’s leg. She is pushing at one of his leg- WAIT A MINUTE!! HE STUMBLES FORWARD AS HE LET’S GO OF THE HOLD! BUT MARY IS MOVING BACKWARDS! NO WAY!!!
James Peters: NO FREAKING WAY SHE JUST REVERSED THE SHARPSHOOTER WITH ONE OF HER OWN!!! SHE HAS WOOGIE LOCKED INTO HIS OWN MOVE!!! BUT HE HAS TOO MUCH LEG POWER! HE MANAGES TO QUICKLY GET TO THE ROPES! HE TURNS AS HE GETS UP GAZING AT MARY HE DOESN’T BELIEVE SHE ACTUALLY MANAGED TO GET OUt OF THAT HOLD! HIS EYES ARE WIDE AS HE WIPES SOME SWEAT OFF HIS FACE AND THE CROWD ENJOYS THE RESILIENCE SHARP WIT OF HIS PETITE OPPONENT!!
Rich Russillo: What will he need to do to get her to stay down?
Persephone: Where is Holly Arrow to end this??
James Peters: Woogie goes to a corner poised to strike he is pumping himself up we know that’s coming folks he is going to charge in for a spear! With his power, he might decapitate Mary who is slowly getting up! Clearly, the sharpshooter did a number on her is she going to handle taking a spear at such a critical moment in the match? Woogie is ready, psyched the crowd cheering they know what’s coming! He charges in like a Bull! MARY COUNTERS IT WITH A SLINGBLAAAAAAAAADE!!
Rich Russillo: WHAT????
James Peters: THE SLINGBLADE TO COUNTER THE SPEAR!! CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS FOLKS??? MARY IS STILL IN THIS FIGHT!!! WOOGIE IS STUNNED BUT GETS TO HIS FEET AS MARY GOES TO HIM AND THROWS FISTS OF FURY AT HIM! Woogie backs himself into the ropes suffering the brunt of the attack unable to block most of the shots before being whipped off the ropes!
Rich Russillo: Mary tries to catch him with a dropkick but he ducks low going under! Against the ropes he goes to her again she tries to hopscotch over him BUT HE CATCHES HER IN MID-AIR! SPIIIIIINE BUSTEEEEEEEEEEERRR THE SPINE BUSTER FROM THE PEOPLE’S CHAMP MARY IS DOWN SPRAYED ON THE MAT AND WOOGIE STANDS TALL BY HER HEAD!!!
Rich Russillo: ARE WE ABOUT TO SEE IT?
James Peters: Woogie throws his elbow pad into the crowd much to its delight! HEre We GO! The Most Electrifying Move In EAW Today! THE PEOPLE’S ELBOW!! IT CONNECTS!!! THE PEOPLE’S ELBOW DRIVE RIGHT THROUGH ATLAS’ HEART!! WOOG WITH A COVER!!
Rich Russillo: HOW DID SHE MANAGE???
Persephone: DAMN IT!!!
James Peters: MARY S. ATLAS KICKED OUT!!!! SHE KEEPS THIS MATCH ALIVE!!! Woog picks up Mary and scoops her up she is in a jackhammer position this can mean trouble for her if Woog drives her down on the mat from that position!! But She Wiggles!! Woog is Struggling To Hold Her There! SHE SLIPS DOWN To Her Feet Facing Woogie! She Grabs His Head-UNFRIEND!!! UNFRIEND!! UNFRIEND!! THE JUMPING CUTTER FROM MARY PERFECTLY EXECUTED ON WOOGIE WHO GOES DOWN LIKE A LOG!!! THIS WAS DESPERATION FROM ATLAS WHO TRIES TO SURVIVE THIS MATCH!!! SHE GOES FOR A COVER!!
Rich Russillo: WOOGIE KICKS OUT!!!!
James Peters: What a display of athleticism we have witnessed by Mary S. Atlas tonight! Woogie on his end as well both of them have been showing us their love and passion for this business and Mary is not about to let go just yet! Here she goes with a Discus Elbow to the face of Woogieman who is stumbling on his feet! Stumbling forward and backward will he fal-Wait what is Mary doing? She is going up to the nearest turnbuckle! Atlas is going high risk! This could pay big time for her if she nails it! Are we about to go airborne with the 1996 AIRLINE?? SHE FLIES! THE 630 SENTON PER- NO WAY!!! WOOGIE CAUGHT HER MID FLIGHT!!!! HE CAUGHT HER UPSIDE DOWN!!! SHE IS IN A TOMBSTONE POSITION!!! WOOGIE GOT HER STUCK AS HE MOVES TO THE CENTER OF THE RING!!
Rich Russillo: HE DROPS TO HIS KNEES! TOMBSTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TOMMMBSTOOOOOOOOONE BY THE WOOGIEMAN THIS HAS TO BE IT!!
Persephone: OH FOR GOD’S SAKE!!!!!!! STAY DOWN BITCH!!!!!
Rich Russillo: UNBE-LI-VABLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEE!!!
James Peters: MARY KICKED OUT!!! MARY KICKED OUT OF THE TOMBSTONE!!! BY WHAT MIRACLE DID SHE PERFORM SUCH A FEAT??????? HOW IS SHE ABLE TO MAKE IT THIS FAR THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE!! Mary Is Heavily Panting On Her Back While Woogieman is Seated by her Side wondering what in God’s Green Earth will he have to do to put that little woman down!!! He smacks the mat in frustration before getting up and paces a little bit back and forth considering his options.
Rich Russillo: AN IDEA LOOKS TO FINALLY POP IN THE HEAD OF WOOGIE AS HE LINES THE NOW DAZED AND CONFUSED MARY UP WHILE SHE SLOWLY GETS BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE! MARY TURNS AROUND INTO THE WAITING ARMS OF WOOGIEMAN! THE BOTTOM!!
James Peters: NO! MARY ELBOWS HER WAY OUT OF IT, HAVING THE MOVE WELL SCOUTED! WOOG TURNS AROUND INTO A SUPERKICK ATTEMPT FROM MARY, BUT HE CATCHES THE BOOT BEFORE TWIRLING HER AROUND, SHOVING HER INTO THE ROPES IN WHICH SHE REBOUNDS OFF OF!
Rich Russillo: SPINEBUSTER! MARY RUNS RIGHT INTO A SPINEBUSTER FROM THE WOOG, WHO TOSSES HIS ELBOW PAD INTO THE AUDIENCE, ONE LUCKY FAN IS GOING HOME WITH A SOUVENIR TONIGHT AS WOOGIE BOUNCES BACK AND FORTH OFF THE ROPES, PERHAPS GOING FOR THAT PEOPLE’S ELBOW…WHICH IS AGAIN WELL SCOUTED BY MARY, WHO ROLLS OUT OF THE RING, EFFECTIVELY AVOIDING THE FINISHING MANEUVER OF WOOGIEMAN!
Persephone: COULD SHE NOT HAVE JUST STAYED THE FUCK DOWN?!
James Peters: MARY ISNT LOOKING TO TAKE AN L HERE AT THE HANDS OF WOOGIE, WHO STICKS HIS TORSO OUT THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE, GRABBING AHOLD OF ATLAS BY HER HAIR, HOPING TO PULL HER BACK INTO THE RING- BUT MARY BREAKS FREE WITH AN EYE RAKE! AND NOW LANDS A SUPERKICK ON WOOGIE, WHO COLLAPSES BACK INTO THE RING OFF OF HEADSHOT CONNECTING!
Rich Russillo: AND NOW LOOK AT MARY, LIKE A SHARK WHO SMELLS BLOOD IN THE WATER, CLIMBING THE TOP ROPE! WOOGIE HAS NO IDEA WHATS COMING AS HES IN PERFECT DROPZONE FOR…1996 AIRLINE! THE 630 SENTON CONNECTS AS MARY COMES CRASHING DOWN HARD! THE LEG OF WOOGIE IS HOOKED NOW, AND IT DOESNT LOOK LIKE HES GONNA BE ABLE TO GET HIMSELF OUTTA THIS ONE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: HERES YOUR WINNER…MARY S. ATLAS!!
(‘Nothing Helps’ by ONE OK ROCK plays to mixed reaction as a proud Mary gets her hand raised in victory over a downed Woog, having had the wind knocked out of him with that 630.)
Persephone: Thank God it’s over!
Rich Russillo: :wow:
James Peters: I’ll give credit where credit is due to both competitors, Woogie didn’t look too shabby at there, even having me believing he had this match won at times.
Rich Russillo: But Mary found a way to walk out with the victory, albeit a little bit dirty, but sometimes the ends justify the means as Mary has gained herself some momentum with this win.
(The camera fades elsewhere on a final shot of Mary exiting the ring.)
(Commercial promoting Petco, featuring Jake Smith and his new dog Josh, who for some reason is the same size as Jake.)
(Voltage returns as ‘Stop Breathing’ by Playboi Carti begins to play throughout the arena. To no surprise, Jake Smith is welcomed to a choir of boos as he walks onto the stage, an agitated look on his face this time. He walks to the ring fast and determined.)
James Peters: He’s definitely got something on his mind tonight, he’s not happy about the events that transpired last week.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, that loss to Chris Elite is certainly not sitting well with him.
Persephone: So he’s a loser and got some weirdo bummy screamo theme like this? Fucking Playboi Carti? Who the fuck is that man?
(Jake is handed a microphone and begins to speak.)
Jake Smith: It’s almost funny. Chris Elite is walking around EAW as if he actually has a win over its most prized possession, but in reality, you all saw what happened; I was attacked before my match began. I was assaulted, violated and damaged before my match with Chris Elite. You can’t call an excuse what you all saw happen. And even after that attack, I still walked down to that ring and came razor close to my victory.
(Crowd boos as Jake Smith shrugs.)
Jake Smith: You’re mad because your favorite elitist wouldn’ve dragged their carcass to that ring all taped up and shit, but I came out there, still hurting, and LOOKED like I belonged out there too. So, if Chris Elite wants to celebrate an illegitimate victory, them I’m not gonna stop him because it truly goes to show just how pitiful his fucking life and career are these days. I would never have lost had it not been for that attack and if you think differently, you’re an incel. You’re a fucking internet fan dork, who could never even make it between these ropes.
(Crowd chants “You’re a midget! You’re a midget” You’re a midget!”)
(Jake pretends to clean out his ears as if he’s not hearing them correctly.)
Jake Smith: Huh? HUH?! I can’t be hearing you right. I could swear you called me a midget? When I’m a specimen compared to all of you. My long hair and vascular arms draw the eyes of all your fatty wives, who I’d reject without a second thought regardless. Have fun being on the bottom of society’s food chain you fat inbred fucks.
(Crowd now raining down the boos on Jake Smith.)
James Peters: Man, these boos are something else. These people HATE him.
Jake Smith: It’s okay, you’ve always hated the truth. Any idea that challenged your world of living with your mother and grandmother, you’ve never listened. But you know what, competitors like Chris Elite and Raven…Raven motherfucking Roberts are the reason this company is going the way it is. You all are to blame for them acting this way. Your little cheers and high-fives make them feel as if it’s cool to be all nice to you guys and to be soft. They want to be accepted and liked so they can find some little sliver of comfort in the dying darkness of their career. It truly, TRULY pains me to think that Raven Roberts contributed to Chris gaining a win over someone like me on Voltage. She gave his career an unneeded confidence boost, now he’s going to walk himself into the bear cave when he sees me next.
(Jake pauses for a moment.)
Jake Smith: You know what…come to think of it, you did it on purpose, didn’t you, Raven? You did it on purpose, sabotaging my match, right? You did it because you’re jealous of Jake Smith, simply put.
(The crowd roars in boos as Jake smiles and nods his head.)
Jake Smith: You’re jealous that my career still has something left to give. That after Insurgency, I still came out better than ever, contrary to what everyone projected. I’m still here and still on top of EAW, but you, Raven, nobody ever seems to know if you’re still really competing or not. I mean, you’re here for a few weeks, then the next few…yeah, the hatred for my ability to persevere through what you can’t is obvious.
Jake Smith: She’s jealous of my ability to always do what I say I’ll do, jealous of every spect of Jake Smith’s career. Who isn’t? Figures you’d try and shoot down my chances of victory before I even got my FAIR chance to compete in that ring. You all always scorn me for “unfair tactics” yet praise someone like Raven Roberts when she blatantly just threw a huge match out the window for all of you. Make that make sense. Fucking losers.
Jake Smith: And you know what-
(‘In My Bones’ by The Score interrupts Jake Smith as he throws his arms up in the air and looks frustratedly at the stage. Raven Roberts walks out with a microphone already in hand, this crowd joyous to see her.)
Jake Smith: SHUT UP! CUT HER MIC! SOMEONE!
Raven Roberts: Listen to me, Jake-
Jake Smith: NO, YOU SHUT UP! NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY! NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR WHINY ASS RAVEN ROBERTS TRY TO JUSTIFY ATTACKING ONE OF EAW’S BEST BEFORE HIS MATCH!
Raven Roberts: First of all, Jake, if you did in fact lose because of me…that isn’t my fault. It’s on you for not being able to get your head in the game and focus on your match.And before you go again calling it an “attack” remember that you touched me first. You put your hands on me and you’re lucky as fuck that I only gave you that much.
Raven Roberts: In fact, I tried to apologize for bumping into you, it was YOU, Jake, who escalated things and turned it violent. Get over your own ego and maybe you’ll start winning matches and not losing them, maybe you’ll start not getting your ass kicked every week even before your matches. So, no, I’m in no way, shape or form jealous of anything Jake Smith has to offer because I could do what you could on your best day, on my worst.
(Crowd cheers loudly as Jake Smith looks livid that Raven Roberts is out here.)
Jake Smith: Yeah, okay. That’s why Raven Roberts’ name hasn’t been relevant for years in this goddamn company. You don’t have it anymore and you’re taking it out on this brand’s competitors. You want so badly to believe that you could fill Jake Smith’s shoes, but you’re one of many who thought that and then found out how badly they’d fail at it.
Raven Roberts: Fill your shoes? My feet are way too big for that you fucking midget.
Jake Smith: SHUT THE FUCK UP!
Persephone: Great, now we’re talking about her weird feet.
Raven Roberts: You fucked up and wanted to act like a little bitch, you paid for it and then you got your shit whooped by Chris Elite. Deal with it and deal with the fact that nobody who has ever walked the face of the planet will ever be jealous of a White short receding hairline off-brand Drake King like you.
Jake Smith: NO! Deal with this, bitch; You attacked me because you were jealous I was once more about to show out over your deadend career. That I was about to gain another major victory that could only be found in the history books for Raven Roberts. And really, you’re just too fucking sensitive. You bumped into me on purpose, waiting for a reaction, and you try to claim this whole good-guy facade, but you wanted a reaction so you’d have some “reason” to attack me. All because you’ll never be who the fuck I am. You’ll never be Jake Smith, dumb fucking cunt.
Raven Roberts: Wow. Okay. What reason is there for me to be jealous of Jake Smith? You beat Tyler Parker at Pain For Pride? Wow, what a shocker. You beat Chris Elite- Oh, wait. Yeah, there isn’t anything for me to be jealous of because your season will consist of wishing you still had Insurgency to pin your losses and unavailing results on. Now, you have to face the wreckage your career has turned to, so you’re desperately trying to use me as what Insurgency used to be; a way out. Trying to blame one loss on me, when you could just be the man you at least somewhat look like you are and get over it.
(Crowd laughs and cheers for Raven as Jake Smith grows increasingly angry.)
Raven Roberts: Yeah, I’m sensitive. You can’t face one poor result. That’s why YOUR career is going to be nothing more than what seemingly amounted to lost potential.
Jake Smith: And yours is nothing more than being overshadowed by accomplishments your dumbass husband will never again achieve or even barely live up to. Fucking dumb bitch.
Peresphone: FUCK YOU, JAKE! DON’T TALK ABOUT HIM!
Jake Smith: Sit back down, Persephone. I can smell your stench from here when you stand up and let that thing air out. So fucking nasty.
James Peters: :mjlol:
Raven Roberts: Look, Jake, you really want to prove what you’ve said? You want to live up to all that success you’ve claimed to have? You want revenge for what I did? Alright, how about this; Jake Smith vs. Raven Roberts, Bloodsport 2021.
(Crowd goes crazy as Raven lays down the challenge.)
Raven Roberts: I have no problem proving what I’ve said and I have no problem being the next member of Voltage’s roster to hand Jake Smith a loss in Season 15.
(Jake Smith ponders her offer.)
Jake Smith: You know what, I see what you’re doing. You’re trying to weasel and worm your way into the biggest match for any member of this roster at Bloodsport. You wanted to attack me, so hopefully I’ll be more inclined to grant your career the blessings it’s been needing badly for so goddamn long now.
Jake Smith: But it might just be Christmas for you because I accept your challenge. Raven versus Jake at Bloodsport.
(Crowd cheers as Raven smiles and nods her head.)
Jake Smith: So, I’ll see you then. But know that when I say I’m coming to retire you and put your pitiful career out of its misery, I mean it, bitch.
Raven Roberts: We’ll see about that, short fuckboy.
(Jake Smith with an enraged look on his face. Raven Roberts drops the microphone and begins to exit the ring.)
James Peters: JAKE! JAKE ATTACKING RAVEN! JAKE SMITH JUST GRABBED RAVEN BY THE HAIR AND THREW HER TO THE CANVAS! HE’S UNLOADING WITH PUNCHES AND STOMPS NOW TO RAVEN! JAKE ISN’T WAITING FOR BLOODSPORT NOW! RAVEN I(S BLOODIED ON THE CANVAS AND LAYING IN A HEAP AS JAKE SMITH WIPES HIS FACE AND HAIR WITH HER BLOOD!
Rich Russillo: WAIT, JAKE! NO! HE’S PICKING RAVEN UP AND GOT HER IN POSITION FOR THE ‘STARMAKER’! DOn”T DO IT, JAKE! OH MY, HERE HE GOES! ‘STARMAKER’!!!! RAVEN PLANTED FIRST FIRST ONTO THE CANVAS AND SHE ROLLS OVER ABSOLUTELY LIFELESSLY!
Persephone: Thank God, someone had to shut that dumb bitch up. Jake Smith is still a dumbass midget though. I’m not looking forward to this match.
(Jake finally rolls out of the ring and walks up the ramp, looking back at the damage done, he smiles and blows a kiss at Raven.)
James Peters: That was a savage attack and I can promise you, this is going to erupt every week until Bloodsport. Every chance they get, every moment possible, this just became personal.
(Jake walks backstage as Raven is still trying to sit up inside the ring. The crowd cheers for her as Voltage fades to commercial break.)
(Promotional ad for Jake Smith versus Raven Roberts at Bloodsport.)
(Voltage comes back from commercial break to the crowd erupting into cheers upon seeing one of Voltage’s newest acquisitions, Danny Tanner. He’s seen backstage in Gorilla Position pacing back and forth. He’s biting his nails and is suddenly startled by someone putting a hand on his shoulder. That person is revealed to be none other than the man, the myth, the legend, The Woogieman himself. The crowd is coming unhinged because of this while Woogie looks at Danny with a smile on his face.)
The Woogieman: Danny! I’m glad I caught you before you went out there. Look where we are now my friend, your first match in Elite Answers Wrestling. I was there, in your shoes before as a little Woogie, gearing up for my debut. It was a very scary experience, but look where it got me now. It brought me to a legendary career that allowed me to transcend the professional wrestling industry and become an actor in many Grammy winning movies.
Danny Tanner: Aren’t the Grammys for the music industry-
The Woogieman: My point is, there’s nothing to be afraid of. Shane Gates doesn’t stand a chance when he faces Danny Tanner at his best.
Danny Tanner: I appreciate the support Woogie, but I’m very unsure about this. There’s been a lot of thoughts going on in my head and I’ve been having second thoughts about this all day.
The Woogieman: Look man, everything is going to be alright. I’ve faced Shane Gates in the ring before and take it from me, he’s one tough challenge. A man with his stature means he’s capable of a lot in the ring and I’m sure he’s going to have a lot in store for you after what you did last week. It’s going to be hard, but that doesn’t mean beating him is impossible.
Danny Tanner: I’m not so sure man, I’ve been thinking about it in bed before today while getting my daily dose of serotonin looking through Hikari Kanno Rule 34-
The Woogieman: //media1.tenor.com/images/a36c1bab4fbda3f39ba712f5c6d9e882/tenor.gif?itemid=9201304
Danny Tanner: Browsing the interwebs I mean, hahahahahaha. But I don’t know man, I’m really unsure about all of this. I’m feeling all types of regret with what I did last week. I don’t know why I challenged Donovan, I don’t know why I picked a fight with Gates. I should’ve just let the whole attack by Gates go because now I have to fight him in a match that no matter how much I try to believe otherwise, I don’t think I’m going to win. I’m sorry Woogie, but I’m really second guessing myself right now-
The Woogieman: Hey! Snap out of it, you need to get your head together before it’s too late. You need to go down to that ring against Shane Gates, and defend it as if it’s your home. You accepting Donovan’s challenge and standing up for yourself are both good things.
Danny Tanner: Woogie, I don’t know if I told you this before; but I’m thankful for you. Hey, maybe if I do win against Shane then we can go out with the women again. Maybe then, my fantasies will be fulfilled, and I’ll get some bitches!
The Woogieman: :francis: Maybe not that part. You kind of creeped them out last week so no, that won’t be happening tonight. But nonetheless, I wish you good luck kid. Make me proud tonight.
Danny Tanner: I won’t let you down!
(Woogie nods his head before leaving the camera frame. Danny anxiously waits in Gorilla Position, rubbing his hands with a smile of anticipation on his face. He takes a deep breath before walking away as well, leaving Voltage to transition back to the American Airlines Arena.)
(The camera transitions over to show Bella Braxton standing at the center of the ring. She has a microphone in her hands and a smile on her face, ready to announce the next match.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Loser’ by Charles Hamilton hits to the emphatic cheers from the crowd knowing exactly who it is. None other than Danny Tanner makes his way out to the stage with an enthusiastic look on his face. Just the thought of the EAW Universe supporting him gives him chills, scanning around the excited crowd clearly excited to be out here. He then turns his head to focus on the ring, his smile of enthusiasm turns to a more serious look. Taking the advice from earlier he’s more motivated than ever, taking a deep breath before heading down the ramp and towards the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… from Sarasota, Florida… weighing in at 205 pounds… DANNY “3 SECOND” TANNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: What a reaction from the EAW Universe towards the debuting Danny Tanner! Can you honestly blame them though? We all saw what happened last week, he made a name for himself accepting Donovan Duke’s challenge for the 24/7 Contract along with punking Shane Gates later in the night. The man has not been short on making a statement and trying his best to get himself out there.
James Peters: That doesn’t go without doubts though. We saw before this he wasn’t really feeling it, but thankfully The Woogieman slapped him into shape and got his head back into the game. I’m sure Danny couldn’t be better, Woogie shot adrenaline into him and now he’s up and running. The question is, can he make it out of what he’s dragged himself into tonight?
Persephone: Oh please, tell me again why we’re hyping up a glorified virgin? It’s like he’s one in a million but it’s not like 99% of the incels in attendance tonight aren’t ones themselves. If anything he’s the prime example of anything is possible, which is why next week I will be making my wrestling debut. :blessed:
(Danny excitedly makes his way up the steel steps and onto the apron, quickly entering into the ring from there. He circles around for a moment, taking his time and letting the adrenaline course through him; before climbing up to the top rope and raising his fists into the air. The crowd is eating him up at the moment, excited for what the newcomer might possibly have in store for his first match. He jumps off the top and makes his way towards his corner, jumping back and forth while stretching his limbs. ‘Loser’ fades out while Danny anxiously waits for his opponent to come out.)
(‘Swallowing The Rabbit Whole’ by Code Orange blares through the speakers of the arena to the thunderous boos of the crowd. Shane Gates begins to methodically make his way out to the stage, with a hood on his head, looking down while he stands on the stage. He slowly peels off the hood to show a pissed off, angered look on his face looking towards the ring. He keeps his attention on his opponent, Danny Tanner, the entire time, not breaking eye contact even once. His eye twitches while his face scrunches up, before making his way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent… from Huntington Beach, California… weighing in at 213 pounds… THE NATURAL BORN KILLER… SHANE GATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: It’s been a very interesting past few weeks for Shane to say the very least. Having considered Lizzie dead and gone after Pain For Pride, recently it seems like that has been proven otherwise. Having shown up last week costing Shane the win against Lucas Johnson, Shane got met by a woman named Elizabeth who managed to align herself with Shane to help put an end to Lizzie before she could cause any harm once again. It’s been very hectic to say the very least.
James Peters: Not only that, but having the recurring problem of Danny Tanner these past few weeks; there have been a lot on Shane’s shoulders. But I’m sure if there’s one thing he wants to do tonight, it’s dish out punishment towards the poor dude and go back on the hunt for Lizzie. Who knows, she might just show up in this match and we might be in for a treat.
Persephone: Who cares! Why should we be bothered with a doll that’s as hideous as Magdalena Wilson?! Shane should just move on and actually learn to do something interesting with his career. Oh right, he’s been incapable of doing that for the past three years that he’s been here. Fine, just let him do his extraterrestrial shit I guess it’s the most interesting thing he can do at the very least.
(Shane stands at the bottom ramp, the entire time he hasn’t kept his eyes off of Danny Tanner inside the ring. Danny is clearly trying to shield his vision and avoid eye contact but Shane is relentless in this staring contest. Shane makes his way up the steel steps, slowly trudging on the apron before entering into the ring. There are no theatrics whatsoever, just a deadpan stare looking at his opponent tonight. Shane turns around and stands at his corner, getting ready while ‘Swallowing The Rabbit Whole’ begins to fade out from there. The ref begins to check on both competitors, Danny reluctantly agreeing while Shane slowly nods his head. Before long, the ref then calls for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Rich Russillo: Here we go with what should be an interesting matchup. BEFORE DANNY CAN EVEN DO ANYTHING SHANE RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE TAKES HIM DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A RUNNING LARIAT! Shane has been waiting for this moment for two weeks and I’m sure he’s very excited to get his hands on Danny right now. Shane grabbing Danny by his head and dragging him up, pushing him against the corner before sending a sharp knife edge chop to the chest of Danny! Now Shane is just stomping a mud hole into him, caving Danny’s chest in! Shane is absolutely relentless making sure that Danny remembers the beating that he’s going to give him! The ref is forced to make his way over and separate the two of them, making Shane back up and stop his assault. But Shane is making his way towards Danny once again continuing his attack!
(Shane continues to slam his boot into the chest of Danny. But abruptly, it stops. Danny is using all the strength that he can to keep ahold of Shane’s foot. The crowd begins to rally behind him while Danny slowly tries to get back up to his feet, fighting back while Shane looks absolutely shocked because of what he’s seeing. Danny ultimately manages to get back up to a vertical base, shaking but still managing to keep ahold of his leg to the best of his abilities.)
James Peters: DANNY PUSHES SHANE DOWN TO THE GROUND! You can see the pissed off look on Shane Gates’ face, he is very unhappy. Danny should’ve been an easy opponent, but clearly Danny is looking to prove otherwise. SHANE RUNS FORWARD AND GOES FOR ANOTHER LARIAT! But this time Danny manages to duck under, before sending a right hook to the side of Shane’s face which stuns him! Shane is sent backwards, BEFORE DANNY CONNRCTS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE FACE! Shane stumbles backwards but manages to drop down to a knee, DANNY THIS TIME MAKING HIS WAY FORWARD CONNECTING WITH AN ENZUIGIRI TO TAKE HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS!
Persephone: The bar was already low for somebody like Shane Gates, but goddamn did he manage to disappoint in this match.
Rich Russillo: Surprisingly, Danny Tanner has the offense over Shane Gates. Shane is down on the mat but is trying to get back up to his feet, DANNY ISN’T LETTING THAT HAPPEN THOUGH GOING FOR A SLIDING D! Before that can happen Shane manages to roll out of the way of that one! Shane beginning to get up to his feet while Danny scrambles up as well. BUT IT’S SHANE THAT’S FASTER MAKING HIS WAY TOWARDS DANNY AND CONNECTING WITH A BIG BOOT TOWARDS HIS FACE TO TAKE HIM DOWN FOR GOOD!
James Peters: It was only a matter of time before that wave of momentum that Danny had was going to be stopped in place. You can imagine that Shane is absolutely seething right now, that doesn’t bode well for Danny whatsoever. Shane making his way towards Danny and grabbing him by his hair, BEFORE PICKING HIM UP OFF THE GROUND AND DROPPING HIM TO THE MAT WITH A SUPLEX! The pain etched all over Danny’s face tells it all, immediately he’s rolling right out of the ring and out of harm’s way which seems to be the best choice for him. Shane is making his way out of the ring and onto the apron though, patiently waiting for Danny to heave himself up to his feet to follow up. SHANE RUNNING TOWARDS HIM AND LEAPING OFF THE APRON GOING FOR A CROSSBODY!
Persephone: Did this man just do a Matrix evasion to avoid it? :comeagain:
Rich Russillo: That looks to be the case, Danny narrowly avoids trouble sliding away letting Shane plop down onto the ringmat! You can tell that hurt Shane more than he expected, but he’s already getting back up and making his way towards Danny. Danny seems to be in trouble, SHANE BEGINNING TO SPRINT TOWARDS DANNY AND COLLIDE INTO HIM LIKE A TRAIN! BUT DANNY MANAGES MOVE OUT OF THE WAY AND PUSH SHANE FACEFIRST INTO THE RINGPOST!
(Shane stumbles down to the ground, propping himself up to a knee while his entire body shakes. Danny’s eyes widen upon seeing Shane fuming in anger and turning around in place. Shane’s forehead is split in half with blood pouring onto his face. His vision is being obscured, but like a bull, he sees red.)
James Peters: Danny quickly retreating into the ring while Shane chases after him, TAKING DANNY DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A SHOULDER TACKLE! Shane mounting Danny, before sending stiff elbow shots towards the face of Danny! Shane’s rage is beginning to completely unload on the unfortunate Danny, and I don’t think that there’s anything that’s going to stop Shane! Shane brings Danny up grabbing him by his head, BEFORE SENDING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLES WITH A BRUTAL HIP TOSS! Danny clutching onto the bottom rope for dear life, but Shane has him by his head bringing him up and putting him onto the top rope. I think we know what Shane has planned next, HE’S CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP WITH DANNY AND GOING FOR A RELEASE BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX OFF THE TOP ROPE!
Persephone: BUT THE LITTLE SHIT MANAGES TO GAUGE THE EYES OF CORALINE!
Rich Russillo: DANNY CONNECTS WITH A HEADBUTT TO SHANE CAUSING SHANE TO FALL OFF THE TOP ROPE! Shades of last week! Shane stumbles up to his feet, while Danny is on the top rope! Look at the crowd coming undone, if there was a chance to capitalize it’s right now. DANNY LAUNCHES OFF THE TOP ROPE AND TAKES SHANE DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A MISSILE DROPKICK! Danny is right back up, look at how hyped he is. If there was a chance to finish this it’s right now, Shane is stumbling up to his feet with as much energy he can find in his body. Imagine the embarrassment if he loses to someone like Danny Tanner!
James Peters: WE MIGHT JUST BE SEEING THAT HAPPEN AT THE MOMENT! KILLSWITCH BITCH! SHANE’S HEAD IS DRIVEN DOWN TO THE GROUND COURTESY OF THE VOLTAGE COMMISSIONER CAPTAIN CHARISMA’S FINISHING MOVE! DANNY ROLLS SHANE ON HIS BACK AND HOOKS THE LEG! THE CROWD IS HYPED KNOWING THAT THE BOYHOOD DREAM MIGHT JUST HAPPEN RIGHT HERE!
Persephone: I’M DRINKING HIS FUCKING TEARS RIGHT NOW! SHANE KICKS OUT!
Rich Russillo: Look at the exasperation on Danny’s face. Danny has been through the wringer yet he’s going to continue to fight on for as long as he can. Danny slowly drags Shane back up to his feet showing that he has some more fight left in him. Danny setting Shane up, DANNY THIS TIME GOING FOR ONE MORE KILLSWITCH BITCH!
James Peters: But it’s Shane that manages to turn it around and push Danny away before it can connect and presumably finish the job! SHANE LIFTING DANNY OFF THE GROUND AND DROPPING HIM INTO A SPINEBUSTER! BEFORE TURNING IT INTO A SUPERKICK! KILLSHOT CONNECTS!
Persephone: Oh well, it was interesting while it lasted watching that virgin rub the floor with him.
Rich Russillo: I think Shane is looking to finish this though, patiently waiting for Danny to get back up to his feet. The presence of Danny Tanner has terrorized him long enough and he’s looking to finish this match once and for all! Shane is waiting, BEFORE LOOKING TO GO FOR SUFFER AS ONE!
James Peters: WHAT THE?! IT’S LIZZIE AGAIN!
(Shane turns to the stage in pure rage and anger, Lizzie The Doll is seen on the stage while the crowd begins to look scared at what they see. Shane begins to shake in furious anger while Danny stumbles up to his feet.)
Rich Russillo: SHANE WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE FACE OF DANNY! Shane is now stopping down with furious anger and rage upon seeing Lizzie, which is a much different reaction from last week! Danny is trying his best to block as many shots as he can, I don’t think he even knows that Lizzie has made an appearance in this match just yet! Shane brings Danny up, BEFORE GOING FOR DARKNESS BELOW! BURNING HAMMER!
James Peters: But Danny manages to slip off and stumble away, BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A KNEE TO HIS SPINE TAKING SHANE DOWN TO THE MAT! Danny has managed to turn it around before it gets worse for him, but I think he sees the reason for Shane’s furious anger. :lupe:
(Danny falls against the ropes looking around at the crowd before turning towards the stage. He sees Lizzie still situated at the center of the stage. Danny is absolutely stunned at what he’s seeing, kind of disgusted as well. He tries to get a grasp at the situation, taking his mind off the match for a moment, which appears to be his undoing in the process.)
Persephone: Big mistake getting so caught up with the American Girl doll.
Rich Russillo: SHANE WITH RECKONING! THE IRON CLAW CHOKESLAM DRIVES DANNY SIX FEET DEEP! SHANE HOOKS THE LEGS AND GOES FOR THE PIN! CAPITALIZING OFF THE UNINTENTIONAL DISTRACTION BY LIZZIE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Swallowing The Rabbit Whole’ plays up while Shane Gates gets back up to his feet. Shane does not look to celebrate, already rolling out of the ring and running towards the stage. It leaves the ref to check on the knocked out Danny Tanner while the crowd showers boos down.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, here is your winner… SHANE GATES!!!!!!!!!!!
James Peters: While Shane Gates might’ve came out on top tonight, that doesn’t seem to be the thing that he’s completely focused on. He’s running up the ramp and he’s looking to catch Lizzie while he still can!
(Shane lunges towards Lizzie, but before he can do that she disappears into thin air. Shane slides down onto the stage and pulls himself up to a seated position, and his frustrated look tells it all. Shane slams the floor beneath him in anger while rubbing his hands through his hair.)
Persephone: Maybe Shane’s the virgin and I just got both their roles twisted up.
Rich Russillo: Well what a match that we were able to witness here tonight. Danny surprisingly put up a fight against the veteran and gave it his all, but in the end he was all caught up with Lizzie on the stage, which ultimately got Shane the victory. While Shane continues to be on the hunt for Lizzie, it seems like that’s the only thing he’s focused on. Nonetheless, congratulations to Shane on the victory!
(Shane sighs, heaving himself up to his feet and beginning to make his way to the backstage area. Danny Tanner is seen stirring and recovering up to his feet, while the ref begins to help him out of the ring. The last shot seen is Shane yelling in anger before disappearing as Voltage from there fades out.)
(The camera cuts to backstage where Sofia Clarke is standing in front of the Wheel of Death. The fans outside in the arena pop loudly because they know that two more competitors are about to seal their respective fates.)
Sofia Clarke: Once best friends, and tag team partners, now bitter enemies, Holly Arrow and Mary S. Atlas come head to head at Bloodsport. It is a match that is bound to be one of the hatred induced battles to come. Last week, more fuel was poured on the fire of this rivalry, as Holly Arrow cost Mary S. Atlas her chance at the New Breed Championship. One swift Panicland to the temple of Mary S. Atlas put an end to the match, and her dreams. Today we spin the wheel to determine the stipulation for what match they walk into at Bloodsport. At Bloodsport these former friends turned bitter enemies will finally be squaring off. Now Ladies if you would join me.
(Holly Arrow walks into frame rolling her eyes with her arms crossed on the left side of the camera. On the opposite side Mary S. Atlas walks into view staring a hole right through Holly Arrow. The tension is pretty thick and it’s obvious these two women don’t like one another at all.)
Sofia Clarke: I know the two of you have had your issues with each other, so I would like to please ask that we keep this cordial, and not make this into a physical altercation. You two will get your chance to get your hands on each other come Bloodsport and quite frankly all people do on this brand is fight :mjcry:. Now, we’re going to spin the wheel in just a few moments, but first, I would like to know if either one of you have anything to say going into this match?
(Finally having the chance to come face to face with Holly while both of them are on even ground, Mary decides to speak first.)
Mary S. Atlas: You’re not the same person that I used to know. You used to be like a sister to me, someone that I could trust, and actually had dreams of success, and achievement together. You know how much this business means to me, and I know how much it means to you. I would never have actively gotten in your way of success.. I would never have even dreamt of it. I look at you now, and I see a shell of a Woman that I used to know. A few months back, we were chasing the Unified Tag Team Championships, or had hopes of doing that, and now this? I just don’t see the point, we could’ve been successful together. I mean to drop so low, to be so self conscious that you had to try, and take away …
Holly Arrow: I didn’t try… I succeeded..
(Mary lets out a sigh in frustration)
Mary S Atlas: To STEAL my chance at the New Breed Championship.. How dare you Holly! How dare you take that opportunity from me; the biggest opportunity of my entire career. All for what? Jealousy? Bitterness? You taking that chance away from me did nothing to crush my spirits, it just added a little layer onto what was already happening between us. You deserve every bad thing that I am going to do to you at Bloodsport. I refuse to let you get away with taking away my chance at the New Breed Championship. Something that I’ve worked so hard to get! Meanwhile you just waited in the weeds like the snake that you are; just waiting to strike. Just waiting for when the match was solely in my grasp. I should be the one at Bloodsport, not here, not spinning this wheel to go against you. But, it has to happen. It has to happen because you made it this way. Sure, I’m upset, and angry that I will not be competing for the New Breed Championship but.. I’ll be glad to get my hands on you. I plan on making you feel every emotion that you made me feel just last week. You have no idea the Pandora’s box that you opened when you decided to start messing with me. You took my chance away, and you’re going to regret it..
(Holly rolls her eyes again. Clearly Mary’s threats don’t mean a whole lot to her.)
Holly Arrow: Do you think I care? Do you think I care about your sob story? Oh boo hoo you lost a number one contenders match. Don’t even. You know you got what you deserved when I cost you the match. That match should’ve been mine from the beginning, I was simply just righting a wrong that this company decided to pull over on me. You never belonged in that match anyway. It’s time the world knows who the MVM.. That’s the Most Valuable Member, of the Most Wanted Arrow is. As if anyone thought it was you in the first place, but if there was any doubt in anyone’s mind, I will quickly silence those doubts. I hear the words you’re saying Mary, I do; but do I believe anything you say? No. You don’t have a spine. You don’t have the willingness to go that extra mile to shut me up. You stood here just a few seconds ago, and brought up our past. You brought up the fact that you thought of us like sisters.. Well that makes one of us. I never looked at you as anything but an anchor tied to my feet, drowning my potential. You’re right on one point though, we did both have dreams of being the Unified Tag Team Champions. But that’s the one thing that tied us together, and it was pretty early on that I realized that it wasn’t actually going to happen.. Not with you. You may create this sob story about how I turned on you, but what I did was what was best for me. You can appreciate that right? I didn’t know that I would constantly have to hear this whiny voice complaining at me all the time when I did it. You say you love the wrestling business, but I don’t think you even understand it. There was only 1 person that could’ve won that 24/7 Battle Royal contract, and I wasn’t going to let you stand in my way. I’ve let you stand in my way, and take me down for months now, and it was about time I started doing what was best for me. I’m ready for Bloodsport, and more importantly, I’m ready for Season 15 to be MY breakout season. I can tell just by looking in your eyes that you can’t say the same thing. This is the season that we all forget that Mary S. Atlas on the other hand, even existed in the first place. Hell with the way I’m going to embarrass you at Bloodsport, this might be the last time we see you.
Mary S. Atlas: Your own arrogance has always been your downfall. You may think that me actually caring about my partner was a weakness, but I don’t care. Whether you felt a bond between us or not, I don’t care, because I did. You shouldn’t form teams with people that you don’t have somewhat of a bond with, that doesn’t make for good team chemistry.. Now does it? All these feelings that you’re throwing at me right now, you may think you had them when we teamed.. But I know that’s not true. If I was such an anchor to your success you wouldn’t have even agreed to be in a team with me, and wouldn’t have even stayed for as long as you did with me..
(Holly lets out a little laugh, much to Mary’s disgust.)
Holly Arrow: We never even challenged for the Unified Tag Team Championships. I partnered with Kensingten like once or twice, or whatever, and we challenged for the Championships.. What does that say about you?
Mary S. Atlas: No.. What does that say about you? You’re the one that actually got a shot, and failed. Why would IDOL-GUN have let us challenge after you already messed it up for yourself? They already knew you weren’t good enough. It’s time to start taking accountability for your own mess ups. We could’ve thrived as a team, but your heart wasn’t in it. And instead of putting everything you had into it, you started playing the blame game, and turning on me. We needed to be 100% committed, otherwise what happened was going to happen. You’re the puppeteer to your own demise, just remember that.
Holly Arrow: No, no I don’t think I will. We had a match where everyone was out for themselves, so I did something about it. You got in your feelings about it, and we went our separate ways. Then this past week, I saw you getting an undeserved opportunity, so I did something about it. Not everything is as deep as you’re trying to make it out to be. You’re going to get hurt trying to use a big brain that you simply don’t have.. And honestly it makes me feel bad for you. The thought that you somehow deserve any amount of success here, it’s just sad.. So with that being said.. Since you don’t have much to look forward to here anymore, I’ll give you the honors, go ahead and spin the wheel.
(Mary shakes her head, and walks up to the wheel. She gives it a spin, and everyone watches eagerly to see where it lands. The wheel slows down, before finally landing on Fans Bring the Weapons. Both Mary and Holly seem excited, they both look back at each other)
Holly Arrow: You have just signed your own personal death warrant, you don’t have a chance at Bloodsport.
Mary S Atlas: Sure Holly.. We’ll see how much talking you’ll be doing after your jaw is wired shut.. I’m going to beat the ever living shit out of you, and win at Bloodsport..
(They both intensely stare at each other, before Holly Arrow throws her head back in a huff, and walks away. Mary watches her go before she takes her leave as well, leaving Sofia Clarke standing there by herself.)
Sofia Clarke: Well there you have it, guys. Mary S. Atlas will look to take down Holly Arrow in the always popular ‘Fans Bring the Weapons’ match. This is bound to be interesting, especially when we know how creative the members of the EAW Universe can be.
(Sofia signs off and sends Voltage to break.)
(Commercial for dictionaries featuring Xander Payne.)
(The camera fades to backstage where we see Shane Gates dressed in street clothes having competed earlier, and seemingly out for blood. He’s not paying much attention to the people passing by because he knows who he’s looking for. He has tunnel vision down the hall but soon his eyes lock onto a familiar face, and you see his facial expression change. Elizabeth is seen walking up to Shane. He tries brushing her off; he’s not in the mood to talk even though he did pull out the win over Danny Tanner earlier tonight.)
Shane Gates: Elizabeth please.. Not tonight. I’m trying to find Donovan Duke, and believe me you don’t want to be around when I find him. No Lizzie talk, I’m just trying to focus on finding Duke..
(Elizabeth grabs onto Shanes collar and pleads with him.)
Elizabeth: Mr. Gates please! You need to help me capture Lizzie so we can do something about it! She’s going to do something very bad, I can feel it. We can’t just let her keep running free like this. If she does something, and I could’ve stopped it, I’ll never be able to live with myself. And I bet you feel the same way too! She continues to fuck with you! She showed up tonight and this time you got lucky. You were still able to get the win. But what about next time?
(Shane takes her hands off his collar, and keeps pushing forward.)
Shane Gates: Not tonight Elizabeth, I have other things that I need to do.
(Elizabeth stops, and just stares at Shane as he keeps his pace down the hallway on the search for Donovan Duke. He hears Elizabeth down the hall yelling at him.)
Elizabeth: You’re going to regret this Mr. Gates. Lizzie won’t stop until she gets what she wants, and if she doesn we’re all doomed!
(Shane doesn’t look back but yells back a reply.)
Shane Gates: Yeah well we have that in common! I won’t stop until I get what I want! Go home Elizabeth, tonight is not the night for this shit!
( Shane continues his search for Donovan, but before he finds Donovan, he sees Lucas Johnson standing in front of the Commissioner’s office. Shane remembers a conversation that Ryan Wilson and Lucas had about challenging Donovan for his contract. Shane changes trajectory and makes a bee-line right to Lucas.)
Shane Gates: Hey! Lucas you son of a bitch, what the hell do you think you’re doing?
(Lucas looks back at Shane, and gets annoyed just by the sight of him)
Lucas Johnson: What do you want Shane? Can’t you see I’m busy right now? I don’t have time for this, I’m preparing my speech right now.
Shane Gates: What speech?
Lucas Johnson: My speech for when I challenge for the 24/7 contract. I need to sound cool, calm, and collected, so I’m just running lines through my head..
Shane Gates: Uh, that’s weird. Either way, I don’t care what you think you’re doing, you’re not going to do it. And I’ll be damned if you do it, because I’M going to do it!
Lucas Johnson: What?
Shane Gates: You’re not challenging for the 24/7 Contract, I am. You are not cutting any lines, because no one cares about Lucas Johnson. Enough already! This is my chance to get what I deserve.
Lucas Johnson: Tough shit Shane, your thoughts and feelings are invalid. I’m challenging Donovan Duke for the 24/7 Contract, and you’re going to have to just deal with it. I don’t care what you think you are owed, or deserved, because It’s going to be MY contract, and all you’re going to be able to do is just weep. Sorry pal, but this is all me…. Don’t you have a doll that you should be playing with right now anyway? Seems like you are too busy to focus on your career aspirations at this moment in time.
Shane Gates: You son of a bitch. Do you understand the hell I’ve been going through? You leave Lizzie out of this ok? This is about me, and what I deserve. I’m the one that’s getting this opportunity, you’ve been here for like 15 years, we know how this story goes. You challenge for something, you hype yourself up, no one believes in you, but you push this narrative that this time it’ll be different, and guess what? IT NEVER IS! You think this is your contract? You think this is your chance? No the hell it is not. So step aside, it is going to be MY contract! Besides, I just beat that dumb fuck who Donovan gave the match too. I definitely deserve the chance to face him at Bloodsport for the 24/7 contract.
Lucas Johnson: And I beat you! So by that logic, I beat Danny Tanner too. Besides, this time is going to be different! I swear this time! It’s my contract! If I don’t beat Donovan for the contract, then I’ll.. I’ll.. I’ll…
???: What the hell is this all about?
(Donovan Duke walks up to them with a smug look on his face. He has overheard enough of the conversation to know exactly what is going on.)
Donovan Duke: Sounds like you two are arguing over who’s contract this is? Well let me save you two some time on the bickering, because see, this is my contract. It’s not yours Shane, and it’s not yours Lucas. No matter how you might feel about how slighted you’ve been, it doesn’t matter. I won the match that gave me this contract, and I own the rights. But, it does sound like you two are angeling for something.. You guys wouldn’t be trying to snake an opportunity away from Danny Tanner are you? You guys know he’s the one that’s already challenging for my contract right? You guys don’t have a say in the matter, you missed out, sorry.
Shane Gates: HELL NO! We both know you took the easy way out accepting Danny Tanner as a challenger for that contract. He’s a nobody, done nothing, waste of time. You only took that match because you knew it would be an easy victory. Had you actually put that contract up against me, then you would’ve had some sort of worry that you might not keep that contract. Didn’t know you were such a wimp Donovan! Actually with you being an ex member of Insurgency and all.. I actually do believe it.
Lucas Johnson: Yeah, you’re just scared of someone like me.. No, not someone like me.. You’re scared of ME! Because you know that you wouldn’t have any chance of actually beating me. I bet you’re pissing your pants right now just standing this close to me, because you know I could strike at any moment, and knock you out.
Donovan Duke: :comeagain: Ok.. So this is one of the weirdest interactions I’ve ever had in my life. You two umm.. How do I put this? Aren’t very smart are you? Missing crucial details in this little bitchfest.. The most important detail that you seem to have missed was the fact that I said I would face anyone… I meant that. See as I said this is my contract, and I get to do with it, whatever I want to do. If I want to face Danny Tanner.. I’ll face Danny Tanner… If I want to face Lucas Johnson..
(Lucas Johnsons eyes light up, and a smile flashes on his face.)
Donovan Duke: Then I’ll face Lucas Johnson..
Lucas Johnson: Yeah, that’s right! I kn-
(Donovan keeps talking over Lucas)
Donovan Duke: If I want to face Shane Gates..
Donovan Duke: Then I’ll face Shane Gates… But you know what, I’ll do you two a favor. If you two want to get your asses beat at Bloodsport too, by all means. I have no problem making the match a fatal four-way. That way I can kill three hopeless birds with one stone, and you pests will stop pestering me.
Shane Gates: You’re on!
Lucas Johnson: Yupp. I like it.
Donovan Duke: Ok then… Well then it’s official at Bloodsport you two…will join the match, and make it a fatal four-way.. You’re on.
Lucas Johnson: Are you sure you want to do that? You’ll lose for sure.
Donovan Duke: 100% because once I beat all three of you, I won’t have to deal with any of you, and I really don’t want to drag this along longer than it needs to be. So I say we just get all of us in the ring, I win the match, and you three disappear into obscurity. Pretty simple don’t you think?
Shane Gates: Son you just made the biggest mistake of your life. I’m not the one to play with, you shouldn’t play with fire, because you’ll get burned.
Donovan Duke: Oh.. Would you rather I play with dolls? That seems to be more of the thing that you’re used to. Listen Shane, I know what I’m doing, I don’t need you to ominously threaten me. I don’t need you to tell me what mistakes I’m making, because coming from you, doesn’t mean much. I’ve done some things in my life I’m not proud of. I’ve made mistakes that I regret. So believe me when I say, I think it’s a pretty safe bet if I’m being honest.
(As the three disperse, the camera can see a figure in the distance watching them, but it’s too blurry to see who or what it is. From there, the camera fades to black.)
(Voltage reopens at ringside, where Bella Braxton is seen with a microphone in her hand.)
Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR… ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… PLEASE WELCOME THE NEW BREED CHAMPION, RYAN WILSON!!!!
(‘The Only Thing They Fear is YOU’ by Mick Gordon hits, and Ryan Wilson makes his way down to ringside with his New Breed Championship, ignoring the reaction from the crowd as he has a smile on his face. He takes a seat in the open seat by the commentary table, putting on the headset laid out for him.)
James Peters: Glad you could be here Ryan!
Ryan Wilson: The pleasure’s all mine! There was no better opportunity to see my Bloodsport opponent in action than this. Let’s see what they’ve got!
(‘While She Sleeps’ by Trophies Of Violence blasts through the speakers to a loud boos by the crowd. Alex Myers comes out, starting to make their way to the ring with a focused look on their face.)
Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring, from Seattle, Washington…weighing in at 170 Pounds… ‘The Forgotten Mortal’, ALEX…MYERS!!!
James Peters: Here comes ‘The King of Pain’, Alex Myers.
Ryan Wilson: In other words, the person who I’ll be successfully defending my Championship against at Bloodsport.
Rich Russillo: They kicked off their season with an impressive Voltage debut match win over Kevin Hunter, and a Number One Contenders Match win against Mary S. Atlas last week.
James Peters: But, the real question is, can they keep their momentum going by beating Miku Sakai tonight? We will see.
(As Alex Myers is inside the ring, ready for the match, ‘Age-Age Money’ by LADYBABY starts blasting through the speakers to the loud boos by the crowd. Miku Sakai comes out, with a serious look on her face. She starts making her way to the ring as the crowd emerges with boos.)
James Peters: Here comes The Former Unified Tag Team Champion, the one who had a brutal attack on Candice Blair last week and the one who accepted her Bloodsport challenge earlier tonight, Miku Sakai!
Rich Russillo: Miku Sakai has seemed to be really dangerous lately. And after accepting Candice Blair’s Bloodsport challenge earlier tonight, I think she will make it the most difficult mission for Alex Myers to leave with the victory.
Ryan Wilson: Well if Alex wants any sort of credibility going into this match, they better get the win tonight. I want the best competition possible, and Alex needs to convince me that they’re just that.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: Ladies and gentlemen, this match is now officially underway! We got The Current New Breed Championship Number One Contender, ‘The Forgotten Mortal’, Alex Myers, against the former Unified Tag Team Champion, Miku Sakai! And before we say anything, please welcome The New Breed Champion, Ryan Wilson, who is with us on commentary at the moment!
Ryan Wilson: Thank you, James. It’s good to just sit here and watch what Alex Myers can bring to the table at Bloodsport.
Rich Russillo: I mean, they have already shown a lot when they could defeat Mary S. Atlas to earn their Number One Contender spot last week. And tonight, they can keep their momentum going if they could defeat a former Unified Tag Team Champion in Miku Sakai, who now has them in a headlock.
James Peters: into a takedown! Miku Sakai converted it to a takedown, as she gets right back up to her feet looking at The King of Pain with a smirk on her face. Alex Myers gets back up to his feet as well, not looking so happy. They stare at Miku Sakai, not even moving, while Miku still has the smile on her face.
Rich Russillo: But, Alex Myers, all of a sudden, with the big boot! The big boot to the face of Miku Sakai whipping that smile off her face! Alex Myers does not seem to waste any time, as they lay down on Miku. They hook the leg! The first pin in the match!
James Peters: But, Miku Sakai immediately kicks out! Not even anywhere near enough to end this off this early!
Ryan Wilson: That’s a cheap shot. How the hell can it be close to doing anything, James? This guy cannot do anything as long as it’s not a cheap shot! Just like when Miku was NOT expecting it! Is this the person facing me for my New Breed Championship at Bloodsport?
Persephone: It’s fine as long as it will end this shit.
Rich Russillo: Alex Myers does not seem to even give Miku Sakai a chance to catch her breath. Alex Myers rebounds running off the ropes, in the same second Miku got right back up to her feet in. Alex Myers still does not waste anything though, AS THEY NAIL MIKU WITH THE SLINGBLADE! THE SLINGBLADE DROPPING MIKU SAKAI’S BACK OF THE HEAD ON THE MAT! Miku Sakai is downed! Alex Myers hooks the leg, another cover!
James Peters: But, Miku Sakai with another quick kick out! Alex Myers starts to have a bit of an angry expression on his face, as they grab the arm of Miku Sakai, locking in an Armbar! The Armbar to Miku Sakai! Will Miku Sakai tap out and give Alex Myers the fast win they want go get, or will she just keep the match going as it technically should?
Ryan Wilson: See! Alex Myers has been literally trying everything they can to finish off this match as fast as as possible! Welp, what a coward.
Rich Russillo: Alex is still as Ryan said, trying to finish this off as fast as he can, as he picks Miku Sakai back up to her feet. He lifts her up, and WITH THE TIGER SUPLEX TO MIKU SAKAI!
James Peters: NO! MIKU SAKAI COUNTERS! THE REVERSAL BY MIKU SAKAI! SHE SLIPS OUT OF IT, PUSHING OFF THE BODY OF ALEX MYERS! ALEX MYERS TURNS AROUND, AS MIKU SAKAI REBOUNDS, AND MIKU SAKAI WITH THE RUNNING KNEE! THE RUNNING KNEE CONNECTS NAILING THE FACE OF ALEX MYERS, WHO FALLS DOWN ON THE MAT! WHAT AN INSTANT COMEBACK BY MIKU SAKAI!
Rich Russillo: However, Miku Sakai does not seem to go for the cover, as she runs to the ropes. Alex Myers gets back up to their feet to a SPRINGBOARD FOREARM BY MIKU SAKAI! THE SPRINGBOARD FOREARM BY MIKU SAKAI RIGHT TO THE FACE OF ALEX MYERS CONNECTS! ALEX MYERS IS DOWN! MIKU SAKAI TAKES THE ADVANTAGE! SHE HOOKS THE LEG, FOR THE COVER!
Referee: ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOO-
James Peters: Alex Myers kicks out! For sure, it will take a lot more than that to take out the Number One Contender tonight! Miku Sakai looks quite angry, as gets right back up to her feet. She picks the body of Alex Myers back up to the feet as well, as she nails them with a kick right to their gut. Miku Sakai then grabs his head, looking to end it early with the ‘Death Note’ Asai DDT! AND THE ‘DEATH NOTE’!! THE ASAI DDT TO ALEX MYE-
Rich Russillo: BUT, ALEX MYERS SAVES THEMSELF AT THE LAST MOMENT, AS THEY COUNTER THE ‘DEATH NOTE’ BY MIKU SAKAI, AND NAIL HER WITH A SPEAR INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND A FIFTH SPEAR INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! AND WITH A NINTH ONE! AND A TENTH SPEAR INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! Alex Myers backs away as the referee backs him off, while Miku Sakai falls down on the floor. Alex Myers has an angry expression on their face, looking at the downed Miku Sakai.
James Peters: He looks like they have something big planned there. They roll out onto the apron, starting to slowly climb up the top rope, which they reach. Alex Myers starts balancing themself as Miku Sakai starts slowly getting right back up to her feet. Alex Myers goes for the ‘Sinner’s Lullaby’ Coffin Drop. Alex Myers looking to end this one early… THEY DIVE AND NAIL MIKU SAKAI WITH THE ‘SINNER’S LULLABY’!!! THE COFFIN DROP TO MIKU SAK-
Rich Russillo: NO!! MIKU SAKAI SAVES HERSELF MOVING AWAY AT THE LAST SECOND!! ALEX MYERS FALLS FROM THE TOP ROPE ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE MAT!! ALEX MYERS STARTS SLOWLY GETTING RIGHT BACK UP TO THEIR FEET, ALLOWING MIKU SAKAI TO TAKE THE ADVANTAGE. SHE JUMPS TO THE CORNER, AND NAILS ALEX MYERS WITH A TORNADO DDT! THE TORNADO DDT CONNECTS, SLAMMING ALEX MYERS’ HEAD ON THE MAT! THE COVER BY MIKU SAKAI! SHE HOOKS THE LEG!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOO-
James Peters: BUT, ALEX MYERS WITH THE KICK OUT! THEY STAY ALIVE GETTING THEIR SHOULDER UP! MIKU SAKAI HAS A BIT OF A SHOCKED EXPRESSION ON HER FACE, WHILE ALEX MYERS IS DOWN IN THE RING.
Ryan Wilson: They are giving everything they can, but I don’t think it will be anywhere near enough to win this. Nor do I think it will be to have the slightest possibility in winning MY New Breed Championship. After all, they are a guy who has an ill will in inflicting pain!
Rich Russillo: But, after all, they are the Number One Contender, Ryan. Miku Sakai picks Alex Myers back up to their feet, as she throws him out of the ring- But, no! Alex Myers manages to counter, throwing Miku Sakai out of the ring! Miku Sakai is downed on the floor right in front of us the commentators!
James Peters: Miku Sakai starts getting back up to her feet looking hurt, while Alex Myers wastes no time! Alex Myers rebounds, they run off the ropes! What are they thinking about at the moment!!!? OH MY GOD, ALEX MYERS WITH THE TOPE CON HILO!!! THE TOPE CON HILO TO MIKU SAKAI CONNECTS!!! WHAT A MOVE BY ALEX MYERS!! MIKU SAKAI IS DOWN! ALEX MYERS IS DOWN! HOWEVER, HE STILL MANAGES TO GET BACK UP TO HIS FEET, STARRING DOWN AT THE HURT MIKU SAKAI! THE REFEREE STARTS HIS TEN COUNT!
Ryan Wilson: :notbad: Well, that was kinda impressive.
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE!
(Alex Myers starts walking up to the commentary as they hit the table with their fist, starting to stare at the New Breed Champion, Ryan Wilson. Ryan Wilson stands up, holding his New Breed Championship up in the air. Alex Myers does not react with anything but a slight evil smirk, while Ryan Wilson has a grin on his face.)
Alex Myers (off-mic): You’re not holding it for long… BLOODSPORT WILL BE YOUR LAST DAY AS THE NEW BREED CHAMPION!
James Peters: Things are starting to heat up even more between our New Breed Champion and the Number One Contender for his title now! BUT MIKU SAKAI FROM BEHIND WITH AN ENZU LARIAT! THE ENZU LARIAT TAKES DOWN ALEX MYERS!! MIKU SAKAI TAKES DOWN ALEX MYERS!!!
Referee: SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT!
Rich Russillo: Miku Sakai picks Alex Myers back up to their feet, she looks around then throws them back inside the ring. Alex Myers is downed in the middle of the ring, while Miku Sakai is leaning on the barricade, trying to catch her breath.
Referee: NINE! TE-
James Peters: And Miku Sakai rolls back in the ring at the last second. She holds the top rope to stand, as she is apparently quite hurt.
(Ryan Wilson sits back on his chair, still having the grin on his face.)
Ryan Wilson: I mean, did you just see that? Alex Myers just couldn’t focus the match they are having right now because of their New Breed Championship Match against me at Bloodsport! How can someone like this be capable of being THE NEW BREED CHAMPION? Who beat Ronan Malosi at Pain For Pride to win the New Breed Championship? ME. Who is the current New Breed Champion and for sure, the man leaving Bloodsport as the New Breed Champion? ME. Who had the best match of the week against the current EAW World Champion in Drake King? ME. Can Alex Myers do anything from what I did? NO. Because at the end of the day, I am Ryan Wilson, and they are Alex Myers-
Rich Russillo: AND MIKU SAKAI WITH THE CORNER HIP ATTACK IN THE SAME SECOND ALEX MYERS GOT UP LEANING ON THE CORNER IN!! MIKU SAKAI DOES NOT ALLOW ALEX MYERS TO CATCH HIS BREATH!! She backs off to the opposite corner, BEFORE SHE NAILS HIM WITH ANOTHER ONE! ANOTHER CORNER HIP ATTACK! MIKU SAKAI WITH TWO CORNER HIP ATTACKS TO ALEX MYERS, WHO FALLS DOWN ON THE MAT! MIKU SAKAI WITH THE COVER ON ALEX MYERS!! SHE HOOKS THE LEG! A PIN!
Referee: ONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-
James Peters: AND ALEX MYERS WITH THE KICK OUT!! ALEX MYERS GETS THE SHOULDER UP AGAIN, STAYING ALIVE! MIKU SAKAI PUNCHES THE MAT IN ANGER, AS SHE GETS ON TOP OF ALEX MYERS!! OH MY GOD!! MIKU SAKAI WITH THE PUNCHES RIGHT TO THE NOSE OF ALEX MYERS!!! A PUNCH FOLLOWED BY THE OTHER AND IT’S ALL TO ALEX MYERS’ NOSE!! MIKU SAKAI
Referee: ONE! TWO! THR-
Rich Russillo: And Alex Myers throws the body of Miku Sakai off themself! Both Alex Myers and Miku Sakai get right back to their feet. Miku Sakai runs at Alex Myers, BUT ALEX MYERS WITH THE SUPERKICK!! THE SUPERKICK RIGHT TO THE FACE OF MIKU SAKAI CONNECTS!! Miku Sakai falls to her knees, BUT ALEX MYERS TAKES THE ADVANTAGE NOT ALLOWING THEMSELF TO WASTE ANYTIME, NOR ALLOWING MIKU SAKAI TO CATCH HER BREATH, AS HE NAILS HER WITH ANOTHER SUPERKICK RIGHT TO THE JAW CONNECTING!! MIKU SAKAI IS DOWN!
James Peters: Alex Myers doesn’t go to the cover at the moment, as they pick Miku Sakai right back up to her feet. They lift her up in the air, AND WITH THE BRAINBUSTER!! THE BRAINBUSTER TO MIKU SAKAI CONNECTS!! THE BRAINBUSTER CONNECTS!! Miku Sakai is totally hurt, as we can see the evil smirk on the face of The Forgotten Mortal, who is sitting right next to Miku Sakai, as they stare at her with that evil smirk on their face.
Rich Russillo: Alex Myers is still not willing to go for the cover, as they pick Miku Sakai back up to her feet. They grab her, then rolls out onto the apron, still holding her. Both competitors are standing on the apron… it looks like Alex Myers is setting up something. What is he going to do now!!? He lifts Miku Sakai up again, AND WITH THE BRAINBUSTER!!!!!! OH MY FUCKING GOD!!!!!! ANOTHER BRAINBUSTER, BUT ON THE APRON!!!!! THE BRAINBUSTER ON THE APRON!!!!! THE BRAINBUSTER ON THE APRON BY ALEX MYERS TO MIKU SAKAI!!!! Alex Myers gets off the apron, rolling back inside the ring, and pulling Miku Sakai back in as well! But, what a move by Alex Myers!! ALEX TAKES THE ADVANTAGE, HE ROLLS ON THE BODY OF MIKU SAKAI, AND HOOKS THE LEG, FOR THE COVER!!
Referee: ONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! TTTHHHRR-
James Peters: AND MIKU SAKAI KICKS OUT!!!!! MIKU SAKAI JUST KICKED OUT!!!! MIKU SAKAI JUST DID THAT, SHE GOT HER FREAKIN’ SHOULDER UP SOMEHOW!!! MIKU SAKAI STAYS ALIVE!!! SHE KEEPS THIS MATCH GOING!!!!! ALEX MYERS IS IN A COMPLETE SHOCK AS THEY CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED!! THEY CAN’T BELIEVE THAT MIKU SAKAI JUST KICKED OUT!!! THIS MATCH IS STILL GOING!!!
Rich Russillo: Despite how shocked they are, they still try everything they have out till anything works without any sign of wasting time, as they grab the body of Miku Sakai, and lock in a Triangle Choke! The Triangle Choke is locked in! The Triangle Choke is applied! This might be it!
James Peters: Miku Sakai is clearly in horrible pain! She tries to elbow the head of Alex Myers multiple times, trying to break free. But, ALEX MYERS STILL HAS IT IN, NOT ALLOWING HER TO ESCAPE IT AT ALL! Miku Sakai cannot slip out of the Submission applied in by Alex Myers, as she starts trying to crawl and grab the bottom rope! Miku starts crawling, as she finally grabs bottom rope!!-
Rich Russillo: BUT ALEX MYERS PULLS HER BACK INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, STILL NOT ALLOWING HER TO BREAK FREE! They lock the Triangle Choke in even more harder, doing everything he can to tap or faint out Miku Sakai and pick up the win, BUT MIKU STARTS CONTINUOUSLY ELBOWING THE HEAD OF ALEX MYERS, WHILE CRAWLING TO THE BOTTOM ROPE!!
James Peters: SHE DID IT! MIKU SAKAI **FINALLY** GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE!! ALEX MYERS TRIES TO PULL HER BACK IN, BUT MIKU HOLDS ON!! SHE IS STILL HOLDING THE BOTTOM ROPE!! ALEX MYERS IS FORCED TO LET IT GO OF THE FACE OF MIKU SAKAI!! ALEX LETS GO!! THEY LET IT GO OF THE TRIANGLE CHOKE!! THEY PUNCH THE MAT IN ANGER, WHILE MIKU IS CATCHING HER BREATH TOTALLY HURT!!
Rich Russillo: After accepting Candice Blair’s Bloodsport challenge earlier tonight, will it be possible to take out Miku Sakai and pick up a win over her? I do not think so. But, with Alex Myers being The New Breed Championship’s Number One Contender, they might definitely turn it from not possible to a reality. Alex Myers picks Miku Sakai back up to her feet-
James Peters: BUT MIKU SAKAI IMMEDIATELY AND ALL OF A SUDDEN WITH THE SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB!! THE SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB BY MIKU SAKAI FROM OUT OF NOWHERE!! MIKU SAKAI KEEPS THE POSITION OF IT IN, PINNING ALEX!! WITH THE COVER!
Referee: ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! TTTTHHHHHRRRRRRR-
Rich Russillo: AND ALEX MYERS WITH THE KICK OUT! ALEX MYERS GETS THEIR SHOULDER UP, STAYING ALIVE! Both competitors get right back up to their feet, BUT MIKU SAKAI FROM OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE RUNNING BLOCKBUSTER!! ALEX MYERS FALLS ONCE AGAIN!! ALEX MYERS IS DOWN!!
James Peters: Alex Myers starts slowly getting right back up to their feet, but Miku Sakai does not seem to be done, as SHE NAILS THEM WITH ANOTHER RUNNING BLOCKBUSTER!! A SECOND RUNNING BLOCKBUSTER TO THE FORGOTTEN MORTAL CONNECTS!!
Rich Russillo: Alex Myers starts slowly getting right back up to their feet once again, as Miku Sakai runs at them with A THIRD RUNNING BLOCKBUSTER!!! A THIRD RUNNING BLOCKBUSTER TAKES DOWN ALEX MYERS!! ALEX MYERS IS DOWN!! MIKU SAKAI LAYS DOWN, SHE HOOKS THE LEG!! THE COVER ON ALEX MYERS!!
Referee: ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! TTTTTHHHHHHHRRRRRRRR-
James Peters: BUT ALEX MYERS GETS THEIR SHOULDER UP!!! ALEX MYERS KICKS OUT AGAIN!! ALEX MYERS KEEPS THIS MATCH GOING!! MIKU SAKAI LOOKS COMPLETELY SHOCKED!!! ALEX MYERS IS DOWNED BREATHING HARD, WHILE MIKU SAKAI IS JUST THINKING WHAT SHOULD SHE DO TO TAKE OUT ALEX MYERS!!
Rich Russillo: Miku Sakai gets back up to her feet, while Alex Myers is still downed in the middle of the ring. Miku Sakai stares down at Alex Myers, before backing off. Looks like the former Unified Tag Team Champion is setting up something, AND WITH A BODY SPLASH TO ALEX MYERS! She gets right back up not satisfied, she picks Alex Myers back up to their feet as well, AND NAILS HIM WITH THE ‘STARFALL’!!! THE VERTEBREAKER CONNECTS!!! ALEX MYERS IS DOWN!!! THE COVER BY MIKU SAKAI!!! THE COVER!!! SHE HOOKS THE LEG!!! THIS DEFINITELY HAS TO BE IT!!!
Referee: ONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! TTTTHHHHRRRRREEEEEE-
James Peters: ALEX MYERS KICKS OUT AGAIN!!! ALEX MYERS STAYS ALIVE!!!! ALEX MYERS KEEPS THIS MATCH GOING!!! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE!!! ALEX MYERS JUST KEPT THIS MATCH GOING!!! MIKU SAKAI’S EYES OPEN WIDE, AS SHE IS IN A LITERAL DISBELIEF IN WHAT JUST HAPPENED!!! MIKU SAKAI’S EYES OPEN WIDE AS SHE’S SHOCKED AFTER WHAT JUST HAPPENED!! WHAT AN EFFORT BY THESE TWO!!
Rich Russillo: Yes, Miku Sakai is shocked, but she is still trying. She picks the body of Alex Myers back up to the feet, BUT ALEX MYERS FROM OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE ROLL-UP!!! THE ROLL-UP UP BY ALEX MYERS!!! THE ROLL UP ON MIKU SAKAI!!! THIS MIGHT BE IT!!!
Referee: ONNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! TTTHHHHRRRRRREEE-
James Peters: BUT, MIKU SAKAI WITH THE KICK OUT!! THE KICK OUT BY MIKU SAKAI!! MIKU SAKAI STAYS ALIVE!!! SHE ESCAPES ALEX MYERS’ ROLL-UP, ROLLING UP ALEX MYERS!!! MIKU SAKAI WITH A ROLL-UP OF HER OWN!!! THIS MIGHT BE IT!!! MIKU SAKAI MIGHT LEAVE VICTORIOUS RIGHT NOW!!!
Referee: ONNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! TTTHHHHRRRRREEE-
Rich Russillo: BUT, ALEX MYERS GETS THEIR SHOULDER UP!!! ALEX MYERS KICKS OUT, ESCAPING MIKU SAKAI’S ROLL-UP, AS BOTH COMPETITIONS GET RIGHT BACK UP TO THEIR FEET!! MIKU SAKAI RUNS AT ALEX MYERS, BUT ALEX MYERS WITH THE SLINGBLADE!! ALEX MYERS FROM OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE SLINGBLADE!! THE SLINGBLADE BY ALEX MYERS!! THE SLINGBLADE TO MIKU SAKAI CONNECTS!!
James Peters: Both competitors get right back up to their feet AGAIN as Alex Myers runs at Miku Sakai with ANOTHER SLINGBLADE!! ANOTHER SLINGBLADE TO MIKU SAKAI CONNECTS!!! MIKU SAKAI IS DOWN!!!
Rich Russillo: Alex Myers is not done. They back off while they stare at Miku Sakai. He smirks an evil smirk, before nodding, as he rolls out of the ring onto the apron, starting to climb up the top rope, which he reaches. He stares down at Miku Sakai looking completely focused, BEFORE HE NAILS HER WITH THE DRIVING KNEES RIGHT TO THE SKULL!!! THE ‘DOCTOR SLEEP’ CONNECTS!!! THE DIVING KNEES CONNECT WITH THE SKULL OF MIKU SAKAI!!! ALEX MYERS HOOKS THE LEG, FOR THE COVER!!
Referee: ONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! TTTTTHHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEE-
James Peters: MIKU SAKAI GETS HER SHOULDER UP!!! MIKU SAKAI KICKS OUT!!!! MIKU SAKAI WITH THE KICK OUT!!!!! MIKU SAKAI STAYS ALIVE ONCE AGAIN DESPITE EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED!!! HOW ARE THEY STILL DOING THIS!!!!!!??
Rich Russillo: Alex Myers punches the mat multiple times literally not believing what happened; Miku Sakai kicking out once again. He rolls out onto the apron again, starts climbing the top rope, reaching it. As he waits for Miku Sakai to get back up to her feet, which she finally does. He takes a deep breath, BEFORE HE NAILS HER WITH THE ‘SINNER’S LULLABY’ COFFIN DRO-
James Peters: BUT, MIKU SAKAI MOVES AWAY!!! ALEX MYERS LANDS RIGHT ON THE MAT ALL THE WAY FROM THE TOP TO THE FLOOR!!! ALEX MYERS GETS BACK UP TO THEIR FEET FROM THE IMPACT COMPLETELY HURT, AS MIKU SAKAI TAKES THE ADVANTAGE WITH A KICK RIGHT TO THE GUT, INTO A ‘DEATH NOTE’!!!! THE ASAI DDT CONNECTS!!! ALEX MYERS IS DOWN AND SEEMINGLY OUT COLD!!! THIS IS MIKU’S MOMENT!!! SHE HOOKS THE LEGS!!! THE COVER!!! THAT’S DEFINITELY IT!!!!
Referee: ONNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! TTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Age-Age Money’ by LADYBABY starts playing through the speakers to a loud boos by the crowd. Miku Sakai gets up looking completely tired, but having a huge smirk on her face. The referee holds up her hand in victory, acknowledging her as the winner.)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… MIIIIIKUUUUUUUUU..SAAAAKAAAAAIIIIIII!!!!!
James Peters: What a match! Great performance by both competitors, and a well-deserved win for Miku Sakai!
Rich Russillo: Definitely well-deserved. Alex Myers wasn’t easy to defeat at all, and I’m sure they had a great performance tonight.
(Miku Sakai rolls out of the ring, she walks to backstage, leaving the arena as she looks completely tired despite the smirk on her face. Ryan Wilson stands up, as he takes off his headset. He grabs a microphone, then rolls in the ring as ‘Age-Age Money by LADYBABY stops playing)
Ryan Wilson: Is that the “Number One Contender”? I guess the one who should have been truly facing me at Bloodsport is Miku Sakai, not that guy. I mean, he just lost to her. Doesn’t that mean that she is the one who actually deserves to earn that shot? But, it turns out, this guy is the one facing me somehow! WHAT AN OPPONENT!
(Ryan Wilson suddenly drops the microphone and the New Breed Championship, as he jumps on Alex Myers’ body, starting to deliver straight punches right to his face.)
James Peters: OH MY GOD! THE ATTACK BY RYAN WILSON!!! THE ATTACK ON ALEX MYERS!! THE NEW BREED CHAMPION IS NOW JUST BEATING THE HELL OUT OF THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER!
Rich Russillo: LOOKS LIKE RYAN WILSON IS NOT DONE! HE PICKS ALEX MYERS BACK UP TO THEIR FEET, AND NAILS THEM WITH THE ‘MIC DROP’!!! THE MIC DROP BY RYAN WILSON CONNECTS!! ALEX MYERS IS KNOCKED OUT!! RYAN WILSON STANDS OVER ALEX!!!
(Ryan Wilson grabs his New Breed Championship Belt that he dropped before attacking Alex Myers; he stands tall over Alex as he holds his New Breed Championship up as ‘The Only Thing They Fear is YOU’ by Mick Gordon starts playing through the speakers. From there, Voltage begins to fade away from the area.)
(Commercial for water. Not any specific brand, just water in general, featuring Ronan Malosi.)
(The camera fades back to the American Airlines Arena as “Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi blasts through the speakers and the Cash in the Vault briefcase holder, Myles makes his way through the curtain to a CHORUS of boos from the thousands packed in attendance. Myles stands on the stage, still obviously furious at the actions of Jamie O’Hara before his match last week; he slowly makes his way down to the ring, paying no attention at anything this crowd throws his way.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome at this time… THE 2021 CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE HOLDER!!! MYYYYYYYLLLEEEESSSS!!!!
James Peters: You have to be wondering about what’s going through the mind of this man after last week. He stood out in front of the world and threw out a challenge towards undoubtedly one of the greatest of all time in Jamie O’Hara, but it didn’t stop there. We watched the conversation between the two and how personal Myles wanted to try to make it. Myles spoke about Jamie’s family and the selfishness of both Jamie and Cameron, and brought their child into the equation. Jamie obviously didn’t take it well, resulting in a brutal assault of the Cash in the Vault holder.
Rich Russillo: There are a lot of people that will say that Myles got exactly what he deserved last week at the hand of The Ace of EAW. You hit the nail on the head; it was a brutal assault before Myles had to compete later in the night against the Number One Contender to Drake King’s EAW World Championship at Bloodsport. It was two devastating knees; one to the back of the head and one directly to the face, as you can still see the results from the hint of bruising across the nose of Myles. I have no doubt that Myles or New Eden are going to take it kindly.
Persephone: By the looks of it – Jamie obviously didn’t do a good enough job if we still have to deal with him being here.
(Myles enters the ring and is handed a microphone from Bella Braxton before making his way to the middle of the ring and placing the Cash in the Vault briefcase down beside him.)
Myles: I’m a big enough person to admit that I made a mistake. Last week, I did exactly what Jamie O’Hara wanted… or well, ask for anyone on this brand to do. I knocked on that proverbial door and extended the challenge that he wanted. After he was embarrassed at Pain for Pride and was forced to submit for the “betterment of his family”; I offered him the chance to prove that the “Ace” was as great as he constantly professes himself to be. But, in doing so – Jamie O’Hara proved that there’s nothing great about the man. He proved that Jamie O’Hara is nothing more than a liar. He proved that he’s selfish. He proved that he’s a coward. He proved that he’s a man that’s trying to convince the rest of the world that he’s a good man; a good father that put his own son before his own selfish desires at Pain for Pride, but immediately turned his back on him the moment that this company extended their hand and offered him the chance to put himself before Hathaway. His actions last week weren’t because of the fact that I brought his son into the equation. Don’t worry, I’ve listened to everyone talk about the idea that I deserved to be assaulted last week. I deserved to be attacked before I was FORCED to compete later in the night. No. Jamie O’Hara’s unprovoked assault was because he wasn’t willing to accept the truth. He wasn’t willing to accept that we could all see him for what he, and the mother of his child are. People that put themselves before the people that they say they love. People that are going to mould their own child into being the same things that they are. I remember watching years ago as Jamie won that No Way Out match to set his date against Mr. DEDEDE for the Answers World Championship at Pain for Pride XIII. I remember seeing him stand in that corner, the picture of his unborn child in his hand, telling it that he was doing this for them.
(A look of disgust crosses the face of Myles.)
Myles: I remember watching all of you fall for every piece of it. He never did it for his son. He never did it for Cameron. He did it for himself. He did it for his own glory. Just like Pain for Pride; constantly talking about how he didn’t want to return. It was Kassidy Heart who forced his hand, but the truth is that he never would have given the idea a second thought if that were the case. He jumped back here the moment that he had the chance.
(Myles closes his eyes and takes a deep breath, calming himself.)
Myles: But, like I said; I’m a big enough person to admit when I’ve made a mistake. I made the mistake of believing that Captain Charisma, for the first time, would have done the right thing. But, you’re obviously given free range to do whatever you’d like if your name isn’t linked with New Eden. We’re constantly punished for doing the right thing, but Jamie O’Hara can physically assault me in an unprovoked attack and Captain Charisma doesn’t lift a finger. This is not something that I’m going to stand for. This is not something that this brand is going to stand for! Captain Charisma needs to come out here and do… the right thing. It’s about time that Captain Charisma treats Jamie O’Hara in the same fashion as if New Eden had done what he did last week.
(Myles lowers his microphone, turning his attention towards the stage awaiting the Voltage General Manager. But, nothing happens. There’s no sign of Captain Charisma.)
Myles: Why… am I surprised? Why would I think that for one moment that Captain Charisma would even think about doing the right thing? Just more proof of the double stand-
(Suddenly, “Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin blasts through the speakers as the thousands packed inside the American Airlines Arena ERUPT with cheers as Jamie O’Hara makes his way through the curtain and out onto the stage. He already has a microphone in hand, opting to stand on the stage as Myles seethes in the ring.)
Jamie O’Hara: There’s something that I’ve come to understand throughout my time in this business. The faces change, but the attitude always seems to remain the same. It’s always someone else’s fault. You didn’t deserve what happened to you last week. It was my fault. It’s Captain Charisma’s fault that I wasn’t punished for retaliation for the things that you said about my family last week. But, this all started because you extended your challenge and brought my family into it. Did you really think that there weren’t going to be repercussions, Myles? I’m at the stage of my career where I don’t have anything left to prove. The legacy that I’ve created is one that’s going to live forever. I don’t need to face any random person on this roster to prove anything. But, do you know what last week was an attempt to do, Myles? It was an attempt to make yourself seem worthy; worthy to stand in shoes that your feet are far too small to fill. But, are you really going to stand there and pretend that you compare to me in any facet of this business? That briefcase doesn’t prove anything, especially when you’re not going to use it to attempt to elevate yourself further in this business. You’re going to use it to protect a coward and a championship that the entirety of New Eden openly profess that they don’t even want :mjlol:
(Myles clenches his fists as a big smirk crosses the face of The Ace.)
Jamie O’Hara: But, I’m not going to accept your challenge for anything that you want. If we really want to call it a challenge in the first place. Last week was a lesson for this entire roster of what’s going to happen the moment that you’re going to try to stand on my ground. I’ll walk out and cut you down, because we both know that’s exactly how this is going to end, and the lowest mutt in New Eden, Drake King, Minerva, alongside the rest of the Voltage roster are going to understand that there isn’t another name that’s more dangerous than I am. What would I be if I stopped you from being the first person that’s forced to understand that, Myles? What would I be if I took away your chance to pick the hill that you die on? If I did what I did last week in the matter of a few seconds – imagine what I’m going to do to you in the confines of an actual match? What do you really think you’re going to be forced to withstand the moment that you’re forced to understand that there’s going to be nothing coming to save you from everything I’m going to do to you at will?
(Jamie’s tone changes.)
Jamie O’Hara: Who are you going to blame then? You’ll look at yourself in that mirror and understand that the blame falls onto your own shoulders. You’ll be able to walk back to the rest of New Eden and explain to them in full detail what’s coming for them the moment they’re ready to step up. There’s the rest of the Voltage, Myles, and then there’s The Ace. There’s nobody that comes close to The Ace. You’d be smart to remember that.
(The two stare at each other from the stage and the ring respectively. Neither man saying a word as the entire American Airline Arena chants Jamie’s name. Finally, “Kashmir” picks back up as neither show signs of backing down.)
James Peters: When I saw Jamie coming out here after the things that Myles said – I was positive that this may have ended in the same fashion that last week did. But, Jamie put it out clearly to Myles. Myles doesn’t compare to The Ace. Jamie’s ready for anybody on this roster to step up, and he’s not going to stop Myles from being the first person that falls. Jamie told Myles that he’s picked the hill that he’s going to die on, and the same fate is going to be waiting for both Drake King and Minerva if they’re willing to do the same as Myles has.
Rich Russillo: We’ve seen Jamie do incredible things in this business, but there are few times that we’ve seen the man with this mindset, and when he has been – it has rarely ended well for the person standing across from him. Myles has signed himself up for the biggest match of his career, but what price is he going to be forced to pay for it. We’re weeks away from Bloodsport and this still may only be the beginning of what’s going to happen between these two men.
(The camera cuts elsewhere as Myles picks up the Cash in the Vault briefcase and holds it tightly in his right hand. Jamie points both hands down the ramp towards Myles, as he did last week, and fires.)
(Voltage fades to a promotional ad for Showdown’s Midsummer Massacre free-per-view, featuring Lethal Consequences who goes over his history with the event.)
(The camera cuts back to the center of the ring where Bella Braxton is ready to announce the next match.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for……ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(“you should see me in a crown” by Billie Eilish starts to play as Holly Arrow makes her way to the ring to loud boos from the crowd.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from the Gold Coast, Australia, she weighs in at 140 pounds. SHE IS “THE DIAMOND DARLING” HOLLY ARROW!
James Peters: Holly Arrow didn’t compete last week, but she sure as hell made her presence felt in a match. She interfered in the number one contender’s match last week attacking her former tag team partner Mary S. Atlas and costing her the match against Alex Myers. She’s competing this week and she looks ready for action.
Rich Russillo: Speaking of last week. After the match, she issued a challenge to Mary for a match at Bloodsport and Mary S. Atlas accepted the challenge. So we will see these two beat the hell out of each other at Bloodsport.
Persephone: I just hope that the match is so gruesome that we never have to see them again!
(Holly Arrow enters the ring and leans against the ropes still proud of the chaos she caused last week as her theme stops playing. “Ready To Die” by The Notorious B.I.G. now plays as the boos continue for Lucas Johnson, who is making his way to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing her opponent! He is from Long Island, New York and weighs 210 pounds. He is “THE EMPEROR OF VIOLENCE” LUCAS JOHNSON!
Rich Russillo: Lucas Johnson comes to the ring trying to keep the momentum going after his victory over Shane Gates last week. With Bloodsport on the horizon, Lucas Johnson wants to go in with as many victories as he can.
Persephone: It won’t happen. Guy’s a loser facing another loser. The smell of loser is too strong in this match. I think we should skip this match.
James Peters: I don’t think that will happen. Lucas has entered the ring and he and Holly both look ready to fight. Lucas’ theme has stopped and the referee is in between the two. The referee calls for the bell and here we go!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: This match is now underway. Two Elitists looking to prove themselves ahead of Bloodsport. You won’t be hearing very many cheers in this match. If you ask the fans in the arena or watching at home, Holly Arrow and Lucas Johnson won’t be high on any of their lists.
Persephone: Who gives a shit? One’s a loony bitch and the other is a hopeless loser. Let’s get this damn match over with so I can go back to dreaming about Rex.
Rich Russillo: Good thing this isn’t a popularity contest. But as everyone can see after an initial period of feeling each other out, they have finally locked up. Johnson has the obvious strength advantage and backs Holly back into the ropes. The referee is asking for a clean break, but Holly is screaming at the same time.
Holly Arrow: (off-mic) GET HIM BACK! GET HIM BACK!
Rich Russillo: Lucas didn’t like that too much and tried to take a cheap shot at Holly, but the ref gets in between the two and stops that real quick. But the ref has his back to Holly trying to back Lucas off and that gives Holly a perfect opportunity to give Lucas a thumb to the eye. Lucas claws at his eye and he didn’t like that and now he’s going for Holly again. Holly makes it out of the ring, but the ref prevents Lucas from chasing after her. Holly Arrow is outside the ring proud of herself and starts talking to the fans at ring as Lucas gets angrier by the second and the ref begins the count.
Persephone: Why is that dumb bitch talking? They like her just as much as I do and that’s not at all.
ONE! TWO! THREE!
James Peters: Lucas Johnson can’t take it anymore and goes out the opposite side of the ring and he is running at full speed toward Holly. She has no clue what is coming as Lucas reaches Holly and CLOBBERS HER IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH A CLOTHESLINE!! LUCAS HAS HAD ENOUGH WITH HOLLY PLAYING AROUND!! HE DRAGS HOLLY BY THE HAIR AND THROWS HER FACE FIRST AGAINST THE RING STEPS WITH A THUD!! Lucas isn’t letting go and tosses Holly back into the ring.
FOUR! FIVE! SIX!
Rich Russillo: Johnson back into ring at six and he is STALKING HOLLY ARROW! Holly has made it back to her feet and LUCAS CATCHES HER WITH ANOTHER BIG CLOTHESLINE! HOLLY DOWN AGAIN AS LUCAS LOCKS THE HEAD OF HOLLY AND ADJUSTS HER ARMS AND BEGINS TO GATOR ROLL HOLLY ARROW!!
Persephone: Now the bitch will be dizzier than normal.
Rich Russillo: Lucas believes he got enough revolutions with the gator roll. HE KEEPS IT LOCKED IN AND BRIDGES FOR A COVER! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
James Peters: HOLLY KICKS OUT BEFORE TWO! Lucas picks up Holly and is looking for a suplex. Johnson lifts, but HOLLY BLOCKS IT WITH PUNCHES TO THE SIDE OF LUCAS!! HOLLY HOOKS THE LEG AND COUNTERS WITH A FISHERMAN’S NECKBREAKER!! NOW IT’S HOLLY’S TURN TO BRIDGE FOR A COVER! LUCAS’ SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
Rich Russillo: JOHNSON KICKS OUT AT TWO! BOTH ARE BACK UP TO THEIR FEET, BUT HOLLY IS A LITTLE QUICKER AND MEETS LUCAS WITH A FOREARM TO THE FACE! Holly Arrow in control as she whips Lucas into the ropes. Lucas rebounds and HOLLY CATCHES HIM WITH A SLINGBLADE! LUCAS DOWN AGAIN AND HOLLY IS PROUD OF HERSELF!
James Peters: Holly drags Lucas corner before she climbs to the top rope. She looks below before diving. HOLLY GOES FOR THE DIVING LEG DROP OFF THE TOP ROPE…BUT LUCAS MOVES AT THE LAST SECOND AND HOLLY DOES NOT HAVE A GOOD LANDING! OUCH! You can see the pain in Holly’s face but LUCAS PUSHES HOLLY ON HER BACK AND ROLLS HER UP!!
Rich Russillo: HOLLY KICKS OUT, BUT LUCAS IS STAYING ON THE ATTACK! LUCAS LOCKS ONTO HOLLY’S LEGS AND IS TRYING TO FLIP HER OVER!! HOLLY IS FIGHTING IT BUT LUCAS MANAGES TO FLIP HER ONTO HER STOMACH. JOHNSON LOCKS IN THE BOSTON CRAB!!! LUCAS ADDING MORE PAIN TO THE LEGS AND LOWER BODY THAT WAS STARTED WHEN HOLLY MISSED THE LEG DROP!!
Persephone: TAP OUT BITCH!! GIVE IT UP SO I CAN MOVE ON WITH MY LIFE AND THIS SHOW!
Rich Russillo: Does your moving on involve going on a date with me?
Persephone: HELL NO!!
Rich Russillo: :mjcry:
James Peters: AM I GONNA HAVE TO BE THE ONLY ONE CALLING THIS MATCH? NOW HOLLY ARROW IS STRUGGLING TO GET TO THE ROPES! WILL HOLLY HAVE TO SUBMIT TO THE BOSTON CRAB? BUT LOOK!! HOLLY IS STARTING TO DRAG HERSELF AND LUCAS TO THE ROPES! CAN HOLLY MAKE IT? SHE IS SO CLOSE!!! AND…….SHE MAKES IT TO THE ROPES! LUCAS WILL HAVE TO BREAK THE HOLD BUT HE ISN’T!
Referee: (off-mic) COME ON, LUCAS!! BREAK THE HOLD!! BREAK IT NOW!! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI—
Rich Russillo: Lucas finally breaks the hold. It’s still early in the match, but I think that Lucas knew that the Boston Crab wouldn’t get the job done. He also knew he would be disqualified on five, so we wanted to make sure that he caused as much damage as he could in that extra four seconds. Now Lucas Johnson has full control of this match up and he is just slapping the back of the head of Holly Arrow. Lucas is showing Holly exactly what he thinks of her.
Persephone: Loser slapping another loser around. Nobody cares!
James Peters: Holly Arrow trying to make it to her feet, but it doesn’t help with Lucas Johnson slapping her in the head. Lucas stops the head slapping and goes to turn Holly around, BUT HE IS MET WITH A PALM STRIKE TO THE MIDDLE OF THE FOREHEAD!! THAT CAUGHT LUCAS OFF GUARD AND NOW HOLLY IS FIGHTING BACK TO REPEATED KICKS TO THE CHEST AND HE FINISHES IT OFF WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE HEAD! LUCAS DOWN AND HOLLY IS PAYING HIM BACK WITH REPEATED ELBOW STRIKES TO THE HEAD!! LUCAS MAKES IT TO THE ROPES AND SLIDES UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE TRYING TO GET A BREATHER, BUT HOLLY WON’T LET HIM!! HOLLY HITS THE ROPES AND HITS LUCAS WITH A BASEMENT DROPKICK SENDING HIM TO THE FLOOR!
Rich Russillo: HOLLY ISN’T DONE YET! SHE IS WATCHING LUCAS GET TO HIS FEET! HOLLY HITS THE ROPES AGAIN! LUCAS IS ON HIS FEET AND IS MET WITH A TOPE CON HILO FROM HOLLY ARROW!! LUCAS JOHNSON DOWN AGAIN AS HOLLY ARROW SHOW OFF FOR THE CROWD LIKE THEY’RE CHEERING FOR HER, BUT THEY ARE LOUDLY BOOING HER!
Persephone: Delusional bitch needs a clue or therapy.
James Peters: The referee has reached the count of four when Holly slides Lucas into the ring. Instead of getting back into the ring herself, AND SHE IS CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE AGAIN!! WHAT IS SHE GOING TO DO THIS TIME? SHE ISN’T WASTING A SECOND THIS TIME AS SHE HITS A BEAUTIFUL FROG SPLASH OFF THE TOP! HOLLY LOOKS THE LEGS!!
Persephone: Lucas kicks out. DAMMIT!!
Rich Russillo: He might be down, but he his feeling it from the frog splash. Holly brings Lucas Johnson back up to his feet and is LOOKING FOR A BACK SUPLEX!! BUT LUCAS FLIPS BACK AND LANDS ON HIS FEET!! NOW LUCAS HAS HIS ARMS WRAPPED AROUND THE WAIST OF HOLLY READY TO COUNTER WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!! HOLLY UP IN THE AIR BUT SHE COUNTERS AND FLIPS BEHIND LANDING ON HER FEET! HOLLY WRAPS HER ARMS AROUND THE WAIST OF LUCAS AND RUNS LUCAS TO THE ROPES!! HOLLY GOING FOR A ROLL UP BUT LUCAS HANGS ONTO THE ROPES!!
James Peters: HOLLY RUNNING IN BUT LUCAS CATCHES HER WITH AN UPPERCUT!! HOLLY STUNNED AS LUCAS LOCKS IN A FULL NELSON! LUCAS STEPS TO THE SIDE AND FORWARD SENDING HOLLY FACE FIRST!! LUCAS HITS THE KILLSWITCH!!! HIS VERSION OF THE SKULL CRUSHING FINALE CONNECTS!! LUCAS ROLLS HOLLY OVER LOOKING FOR THE PIN!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!
Rich Russillo: HOLLY GETS THE SHOULDER UP!! OH HOW CLOSE WAS THAT? LUCAS THOUGHT THAT WAS FOR SURE A THREE COUNT AND HE NOT HAPPY! HE IS GETTING INTO THE FACE OF THE REFEREE ARGUING HIS CASE!
Persephone: Stupid ref should count faster to end this match faster!
Lucas Johnson: (off-mic) THAT WAS THREE!!
Referee: (off-mic) THAT WAS A TWO COUNT!!
Lucas Johnson: (off-mic) BULLSHIT! THAT WAS A TH—
James Peters: LOOK AT HOLLY!! HOLLY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF LUCAS ARGUING WITH THE REF AND ROLLS UP LUCAS WITH A SCHOOLBOY! WILL HOLLY STEAL THIS?
Persephone: Lucas kicks out again. Dumbass just about screwed himself up! Should have stayed down. Would have taught him not to be so stupid!
James Peters: Lucas is on one knee and HOLLY GOES FOR ANOTHER ROUNDHOUSE KICK BUT LUCAS DUCKS!! LUCAS WITH A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN AND HIS TRYING TO THROW LEFTS AND RIGHTS IN THE FACE OF HOLLY ARROW! HOLLY DOING HER BEST TO BLOCK THE PUNCHES BUT SOME OF THEM ARE STILL GETTING THROUGH! THE REF TRYING TO GET LUCAS TO OPEN UP THE FIST BUT LUCAS ISN’T LISTENING! HE BETTER UNLESS HE WANTS TO GET DISQUALIFIED!
Rich Russillo: HE FINALLY STOPS THE PUNCHES AND GETS OFF HOLLY! HE BACKS UP AND LOOKS READY TO FINISH OFF HOLLY ARROW!! LUCAS IS LOOKING FOR THE FINAL CALL AND TO PUNT HOLLY’S HEAD INTO THE FIFTH ROW!!! HOLLY TO HER KNEES AND LUCAS GOES FOR THE PUNT! HE HITS THE FINAL CALL!!
James Peters: NO HE DOESN’T! HOLLY DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND! HOLLY TRIES FOR ANOTHER SCHOOLBOY ROLLUP BUT LUCAS ROLLS RIGHT THROUGH AND GETS BACK TO HIS FEET!
Persephone: DAMN! CAN ONE OF THESE PEOPLE LOSE ALREADY? THE LONGER THEY GO, THE LESS TIME I GET TO THINK ABOUT MY REXY!!
James Peters: I WOULDN’T HAVE SAID IT THAT WAY, BUT YOU MIGHT GET YOUR WISH BECAUSE HOLLY WAS QUICKER TO HER FEET AND SHE LOOKS READY TO END THIS MATCH AND FINISH OFF LUCAS JOHNSON!
Holly Arrow: (off-mic) SHORYUKEN!
Rich Russillo: HOLLY CALLS OUT TO FINISH THE MATCH WITH THE SAME MOVE SHE USED LAST WEEK ON MARY S. ATLAS SHORYUKEN UPPERCUT ON THE WAY!! HOLLY ARROW GOES FOR THE UPPERCUT, BUT LUCAS MOVES BACKWARDS OUT OF THE LINE OF FIRE CAUSING HOLLY TO MISS TO UPPERCUT! HOLLY STUMBLES FORWARD AND LUCAS TAKES ADVANTAGE AND LOCKS IN THE FALL AND PRAY!! LUCAS WITH THAT REAR NAKED CHOKE LOCKED IN DEEP!! WILL HOLLY BE ABLE TO ESCAPE?
Persephone: I HOPE NOT! COME ON, IDIOT! CHOKE THE BITCH OUT SO THE MATCH CAN END AND I CAN STOP LOOKING AT BOTH YOUR UGLY FACES!
James Peters: LOOK AT THE FACE OF HOLLY! IT IS GETTING REDDER BY THE SECOND THE MORE SHE STRUGGLES TO ESCAPE!! SHE IS FLINGING ABOUT TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO BREAK FREE!! BUT IT MIGHT NOT MEAN MUCH BECAUSE SHE IS STARTING TO FADE! WILL HOLLY ARROW HAVE TO FALL AND PRAY? LUCAS IS STARTING TO GRAPEVINE HIS LEGS AROUND HOLLY’S WAIST TO MAKE SURE SHE PASSES OUT, BUT WAIT A SECOND!! DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?
Persphone: Sadly. Why couldn’t the bitch pass out?
Rich Russillo: I CERTAINLY DO!! IN WHAT SEEMS TO BE HER LAST BIT OF ENERGY, HOLLY MANAGES TO FLIP BACK AS LUCAS STARTED TO GRAPEVINE THE LEGS! I DON’T THINK LUCAS SAW THAT COMING BECAUSE THAT CHANGE OF POSITION BACKFIRED ON HIM AS LUCAS NOW FINDS HIMSELF IN A PINNING PREDICAMENT!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!!
Rich Russillo: LUCAS JOHNSON KICKS OUT, BUT THAT ALSO MEANS HE HAS TO BREAK THE REAR NAKED CHOKE TO AVOID LOSING THE MATCH!
Persephone: DUMBASS! WHAT IS HE THINKING? IF HE WOULD HAVE REMEMBERED TO DO THAT SHIT IN THE BEGINNING, THIS CLUSTERFUCK OF A MATCH WOULD BE OVER!
James Peters: HAVE YOU BEEN WATCHING THE SAME MATCH AS THE REST OF US? THIS HAS BEEN A GREAT BACK AND FORTH MATCH! NEITHER ONE OF THESE TWO WANT TO LOSE! LUCAS JOHNSON BACK TO HIS FEET AND HOLLY HASN’T MOVED SINCE REVERSING THE FALL AND PRAY!! LUCAS IS DRAGGING HOLLY TO THE CORNER BEFORE STARTING THE CLIMB TO THE TOP ROPE!
Rich Russillo: LUCAS JOHNSON IS LOOKING TO TAKE A CHANCE TO WIN THIS MATCH! HE’S ON THE SECOND ROPE AND LOOK AT HOLLY AGAIN! SHE HAS JUST ENOUGH ENERGY TO MAKE TO HER FEET AND STOP LUCAS CLIMBING WITH A SHOT TO THE BACK! HOLLY CRAWLS UNDER LUCAS! IS SHE TRYING TO COUNTER WITH A POWERBOMB? SHE’S TRYING BUT SHE CAN’T MUSTER THE STRENGTH! BUT IT LOOKS LIKE SHE HAS A PLAN B! SHE CRAWLS OUT FROM THE POWERBOMB POSITION AND STARTS KICKING THE LEGS OF LUCAS TO GET HIM TO FALL!
James Peters: AND IT WORKED!! AFTER ALL THOSE KICKS TO THE BACK OF THE LEG, LUCAS FINALLY LOSES HIS BALANCE AND TUMBLES BACK TO THE RING! HE MIGHT HAVE LANDED ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH THAT FALL, BUT HE DOESN’T HAVE A LOT OF TIME TO THINK ABOUT IT AS HOLLY IS CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE AND IS GONNA TRY AND FLY ONE MORE TIME! SHE WAITING FOR LUCAS TO GET TO HIS FEET! THANKS TO ALL THOSE KICKS, LUCAS IS SLOW, BUT HE IS BACK TO HIS FEET! HOLLY JUMPS AND FLIPS LOOKING FOR THE HOLLY-GO-ROUND!
Rich Russillo: BUT LUCAS MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND AND HOLLY WITH ANOTHER BAD LANDING!! SMART MOVE BY LUCAS JOHNSON AVOIDING THE HOLLY-GO-ROUND!! HOLLY DOING HER BEST TO RECOVER BUT LUCAS JOHNSON HITS THE ROPES AND NAILS HOLLY WITH A SHINING WIZARD! LUCAS GOT ALL OF IT AND HOLLY IS DOWN ON THE MAT!
James Peters: NOW LUCAS PULLS HOLLY BACK UP TO HER FEET AND NOW HE’S THROWING THOSE BOXING-LIKE JABS RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF HOLLY ARROW!! HOLLY LOOKS DAZED AND SHE MIGHT BE OUT ON HER FEET!
Persephone: GOOD! Now this moron just needs to throw her back down and end this agony that I am watching.
Rich Russillo: LUCAS JOHNSON WITH SOME KICKS TO THE MIDSECTION FOR GOOD MEASURE! LUCAS JOHNSON WHIPS HOLLY INTO THE ROPES! HOLLY REBOUNDS AND LUCAS GOES FOR A BIG CLOTHESLINE! HOLLY DUCKS THE CLOTHESLINE AND HITS THE ROPES ON THE OTHER SIDE AND DUCKS ANOTHER BIG CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT FROM LUCAS JOHNSON AND HITS THE ROPES ONE MORE TIME BEFORE LEAVING HER FEET AND…
James Peters: PANICLAND!!! HOLLY ARROW MANAGES TO HIT HER VERSION OF THE GAMENGIRI! LUCAS JOHNSON JUST GOT WELCOMED TO PANICLAND!! HOLLY ARROW GOT ALL OF THAT AND LUCAS JOHNSON IS TURNED INSIDE OUT AFTER THAT SHOT TO THE FACE! LUCAS IS NOT MOVING AND IT LOOKS LIKE THE END IS NEAR FOR LUCAS JOHNSON AS HOLLY ARROW GOES FOR THE COVER!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN AND HOLLY HOOKS OF THE LEG!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“you should see me in a crown” starts to play again as Holly rolls off of Lucas and slowly gets to her feet.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner….HOLLY ARROW!
James Peters: What a hell of a match between these two! Contrary to the boos you here right now, these two put their alls into this match. Lucas Johnson put up a hell of a fight, but it is the Diamond Darling who walks away with the victory here tonight.
Persephone: Once again, NOBODY CARES! This match is finally over and the torture can end!
(Holly Arrow makes it to her feet and the referee raises her arm in victory to a chorus of boos from the crowd.)
Rich Russillo: You can’t take anything away from Lucas Johnson, he once again showed how capable he is in the ring. But the congrats go to Holly Arrow who picked up a much needed victory and much needed momentum towards her match at Bloodsport.
(Holly Arrow exits the ring and heads up the ramp holding her neck with a big smile on her face, very satisfied with her victory as Lucas sits up and starts pounding the ring in frustration with how the match ended before the camera fades elsewhere.)
[SCREENBAR – Earlier this week.]
(The scene opens up to show a Church located somewhere in Dallas, Texas. The sun is slowly setting behind the establishment as day turns to night, while a sleek black Acura TLX pulls up to the front of the building. The door opens showing none other than Chris Elite getting out of the car. He takes a deep breath before making his way inside, taking off his sunglasses and having a serious, contemplating look on his face.)
(It then cuts to the inside of the church where Chris is seen walking into confessional. He steps in with a somewhat nervous look on his face, knowing everything he’s done in the past. He’s said and done a lot of things that would be frowned upon in a place of religion like this one, also considering that it’s been a while since he’s stepped foot into a Church; who knows what’s going to happen. Chris takes a deep breath, before finally stepping into the confessional.)
Priest: Why are you here today, my son?
Chris Elite: Dad???
Priest: :comeagain: I mean, do you have anything to confess?
Chris Elite: Oh my bad well… I mean well honestly father I have a big match coming up, and I really don’t know how to deal with this crazy bi-… I mean this crazy woman. Like she’s sick in the head, something is seriously wrong with her. She’s like a Vampire… Annabelle… type of chick and it’s odd beloved. It’s really odd and I feel like that’s what’s going to throw me off my game. See, I’ve done fought Gawds, maulers, crackheads, Australians, deadbeat dads, I mean I even fought a bear once in my line of work. But this chick??? She’s sick in the head man, but there’s gotta be a way I can deal with her. There’s gotta be a way for me to beat her and strip her of that Championship because it’s been so long since I’ve held one and people are starting to sleep on me, father. People are starting to forget who Chris Elite is, including her. She looks at me like some Mulatto punk who doesn’t have what it takes anymore, and all my success came over nobodies when that isn’t the case. That one Australian I defeated is one of the best talents the company has to offer then and now, just don’t tell him I said that.
Chris Elite: She feels as if things came easy for me or if I lost my step and not one of those things are true. I haven’t lost a step. I still got it! I just can’t seem to get it over her though. Time and time again she’s gotten the best of me, but this is our first time where it’s just us two. One-on-one and I gotta prove that I can get the job done. I gotta show everyone I still got it and give this company a wake up call so they can all stop munching on my private area. I became a name that’s thrown in when compared to people that suck. I mean can you believe that, father? “Chris Elite” and “sucks’ don’t belong in the same sentence; it’s blasphemy! I am a Hall of Famer! Former World Heavyweight Champion! Like I said I’ve beaten Gawds and all that, so there should be no reason why I can’t beat some possessed chick. Some chick who thrives off being some weirdo. The most wild thing about it is, this is really her.
Chris Elite: See the other people I’ve mentioned? That’s just what we call a gimmick, her though? Shorty is really like this outside of the ring and that’s what trips me out the most. She goes home and does satanic rituals, probably trying to get in contact with the dead, but if she thinks stuff at Bloodsport is finna be sweet imma help her contact them without the need of a board game. See I’m not even worried about New Garden and stopping them, I could care less. I said that at Grand Rampage what I’m worried about is Championship gold and making everyone remember exactly why I’m in the Hall of Fame. If taking one title off them hurts them in the long run? So be it, but that isn’t my goal.
Chris Elite: My goal isn’t to stop them from world domination. My goal is MY goal and MY goal is getting some gold around this waist. My goal is being a grand slam Champion, and I know she thinks she’s funny bringing that up. However she is going to wish she should’ve let me keep my attention on her leader instead of sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong, because now I take her championship and this “Mulatto” does Minerva filthy and gives Myles a new pack to smoke on. It’s a longtime story though and we know y’all love that. From Heavenly Hell to Territorial Invasion and me inviting her to my private area before she put me down like I was some dog. Now at Bloodsport where it’s me taking her title on her first defense. It’s a lovely story… for me anyway. A story about redemption, a story about an “old man” finally getting his step back again. All at the expense of Minerva, because she feels like she can beat me again and she can’t and she won’t. I failed before with her father, but I can’t and I won’t let it happen again.
Priest: Well, she sure does sound like something son. Go ahead and give me a full description of what she’s really like. What she looks like and how she acts. All of it, I want to hear more about this woman.
Chris Elite: Ight so boom have you ever seen that episode of Spongebob where he was dressed like a girl? She looks like that, and as I stated she looks like Annabelle, you know man that weird doll. She wears all that stupid edgy goth clothing like those kids in high school you’d tread lightly with just in case, cause you didn’t want them to air it out. I mean she used to call herself the Gypsy Moth. I still don’t understand what that means but I don’t like moths and I don’t like her. She’s real sick in the head too. She laughs off things others would get mad at. Laughs off things other people would be scared of, I guess she grew up around that weird stuff man. She’s just a demon sort of female. She clearly does satanic worship around her crib, I just know it. I mean she probably even had a ouija board and old and weird dolls from back in the day that look like they move they head when you’re not paying attention. I mean I have a lot of history with this person, and I also don’t have the best of luck either, honestly I’m over it. But this time it’s just us one on one, for a Championship at that as well. Every time we’ve faced off it’s always been a tag match of some sort, so this time I can take matters into my own hands and deal with it how I want and need to deal with it. She’s been a thorn in my side for far too long and I know she thinks this is going to be another cake walk, see in what I do people for the most part usually don’t lose the title on their first defense. Add that onto the fact I haven’t beaten her once yet and the odds aren’t really on my side. So father, I need to know if there is anything you can do that can help me win or do something about this demonic broad. You got some garlic or something? I heard if you throw it at vampires they melt or sum.
Priest: It sounds worse than needing some garlic for a Vampire. It sounds like you need to perform an exorcism, my son.
Chris Elite: Wait what you mean like the shi- I mean stuff you see in Annabelle? Like Holy Water? That LET THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPEL YOU! Sort of stuff? I mean then again a handsome black man like myself tying a white woman to a chair and throwing holy water on her won’t go over so well in court 🤔. I mean just imagine the headlines, I can’t do jail father. I’m too handsome!
Priest: There are other ways to perform them my son. It clearly sounds like the devil is inside of this young lady and if you want to save her and yourself, you must accomplish such tasks. You must take it out of her, and that’s the only way to do so; by performing an exorcism. That is the only logical thing you can do, you take the devil out of her so she isn’t as strong, and I’m sure you’ll be able to stop her then.
Chris Elite: :oh: !!! That’s a brilliant idea father, thank you! I’m about to call Big Mike now and let them know what the plan is. Finna bring back Pastor SK for this one :blessed: !!!
Priest: Pastor who? :comeagain: !!!
(Before the Priest can say anything else or even get an explanation about who Pastor SK is, Chris immediately gets up and leaves the confessional now with a plan. He must perform an exorcism on Minerva and that is the only way he can become a grand slam Champion. He gets on his phone, clicking on a contact that reads “Big Mike” before going on FaceTime. The last shot seen is Chris leaving the Church while Voltage transitions to elsewhere.)
(Voltage returns as Bella Braxton is shown inside the ring. Microphone in hand, the crowd quotes as she begins to speak.)
Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A SINGLES MATCH AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!
(Crowd repeats “ONE FALL!” excitedly.)
Bella Braxton: THIS MATCH IS ALSO A CHAMPION VS. CHAMPION SHOWCASE MATCHHHH!!!!
(Crowd cheers loudly as ‘The Only Thing They Fear Is You’ by Mick Gordon begins to play throughout the arena. Ryan Wilson comes dancing out of the curtain, raising his title high in the air, then hugging it close.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST, WRESTLING OUT O F MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADAAAA!!! WEIGHING IN AT 220 POOUUNDDSSS, HE IS THE EAW NEW BREEEEDDD CHAMPIIIOONNNNNNNN, RYANNNNNNNN ‘THE ARCHITECTTTTT’ WILSONNNNNNNNN!!!!!
James Peters: You know, Ryan Wilson has been new and improved as of late, just a whole new competitor in terms of skill. Despite a tough loss last week in the main event of Voltage to the EAW World Champion, Drake King, Ryan Wilson is looking to come back and sink his fangs into another member of New Eden this week. He has the chance to avenge that loss and certify himself as one of EAW’s top champions, you know he’s coming with a drive tonight!
(The crowd gives a mixed reception to Wilson as he dances down the ramp and jumps up the stairs. Ryan eagerly raises his title in the air as he takes his jacket off to prepare for the match. ‘Blood, Milk & Sky’ by White Zombie begins to ring throughout the speakers as Minerva walks onto the stage. Entering to a chorus of boos, Minerva drags the National Elite Championship on the floor as makes her way down the ramp.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT….. RESIDING IN THE FLORIDA EVERGLADES…. WEIGHING IN AT 122 POUNDS…. SHE IS THE EAW NAAATTIOONNAALL EELLIITTTEEE CHAMMPIOOOONNNN!!!!! “THE BLACK ROSE” MMMIIIIIINNEERRRVVAAAA!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Minerva dragging that title on the floor is a testament to all that she ISN’T fighting for tonight. She doesn’t just wanna be a great champion, she isn’t short sighted or one dimensional. She wants to change EAW with more than championships and wins, she wants to change the landscape and go against the grain.
James Peters: A huge win tonight for New Eden would certainly do that and help widen the gap between New Eden and everybody else on this voltage roster, even the other champion, Ryan Wilson.
(The referee calls for the bell as Minerva throws her title to the ringside official and takes her jacket off.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: And here we go! Minerva and Ryan Wilson, champion vs. champion showcase on Voltage! Ryan and Minerva both out of the corner early, circling for position. They lock up in a collar and elbow tie-up, but Ryan is able to pressure Minerva back to the turnbuckles. Forearm pressed in the face of Minerva as he pushes her back, Minerva is able to push Ryan away and turn this around! She slips under his grasp and pushes him into the turnbuckles, trying to follow up with a short clothesline into the corner! Ryan is able to lift a boot up into the face of Minerva, but she catches it and throws it down to the canvas! She follows up with a stiff clothesline that sends Ryan whip lashing against the top turnbuckle! She got all of that one!
Persephone: Minerva should’ve already had this match won. Ryan Wilson isn’t a real champion, he’s holding a title that a man who beat him vacated. Minerva is a loser too for not already disposing of this ginger idiot.
James Peters: Ryan Wilson won that New Breed title back at Pain For Pride against Ronan Malosi in a hard fought battle. Ryan’s proven a fighting champion this far and as was announced just recently, he’ll be defending that New Breed title at Bloodsport against Danny Tanner!
Rich Russillo: Anyway, back inside the ring now, Minerva is controlling Ryan with a wrist lock and holding him in the corner, yanking his hand down and trying to dislocate the shoulder of Ryan Wilson! She now uses the arm to scoop Ryan onto her shoulders in a back rack! What power from the New Eden member!
Persephone: They’re both fucking geeks so as far as I’m concerned, they’re both New Eden members.
James Peters: Minerva is shaking Ryan Wilson’s spine on her shoulders, but Ryan is able to escape out the front door and grab Minerva for a ddt! Ryan Wilson about to execute a brilliant counter- No! Minerva fights her way out of this and turns it around, Ryan still manages to kick the calf of Minerva, wobbling her and weakening her leg! He kicks the leg again and now shoots a big knee into the midsection of Minerva! The body attacks from Ryan Wilson are nasty as he picks at Minerva’s legs and midsection! Minerva is doubled over and Ryan tries to lift her up by the waist, here he goes! Ryan with a backbreaker that cracks Minerva’s body over his knee! Wow! Talk about a taste of your own medicine!
Rich Russillo: See, we’re witnessing the improvements Ryan has made to his game heading into a new season as a champion. Ryan knows his game needs to be as constantly evolving as this one is, he’s got the New Breed title to prove that he’s still one of EAW’s best! Now Ryan going for that elbow to the leg of Minerva! No! She fires a knee strike that stuns Ryan! Minerva gets back to her feet and charges towards Ryan! RYAN WILSON MEETS HER WITH AN INVERTED ATOMIC DROP! HE DROPPED HER AND NOW RYAN BOUNDS OFF THE ROPES- CLOTHESLINE FROM MINERVA TAKES THE HEAD OFF THE SHOULDERS OF RYAN!
James Peters: Ryan Wilson turned inside out with that clothesline! Now Minerva picks Ryan Wilson up on her shoulder! A RAPID FIRE POWERSLAM THAT RATTLES RYAN WILSON AGAINST THE CANVAS! MINERVA WITH A QUICK POWERSLAM THAT CHANGES THE MOMENTUM OF THIS MATCH! NOW GOING FOR THE PIN ON RYAN WILSON- MINERVA HAS HER LEGS ON THE ROPES! LEGS ON THE ROPES, SHE WANTS TO STEAL THIS ONE FROM WILSON!
James Peters: THE REFEREE CAUGHT HER! MINERVA CAUGHT WITH HER FEET ON THE ROPES AND THE REFEREE STOPS THE COUNT! SHE ALMOST STOLE THIS ONE FROM THE NEW BREED CHAMP! Minerva was on the cusp of snatching this from the grasp of Ryan Wilson and bringing home another huge win for New Eden, what a few months it has been for this group since their unification!
Rich Russillo: Ryan back up to his feet now, he’s met with a boot to the gut by Minerva! She tries a punch to the chin, but Ryan avoids it and lands a sharp forearm of his own! NOW RYAN JUMPS IN FOR THE GUN STUN, MINERVA SHOVES HIM AWAY AND SHE LANDS A TYSON LIKE HOOK TO THE JAW OF WILSON! THAT ONE SENT HIS TEETH FLYING INTO THE FRONT ROW! WOW!
Persephone: Thank god, they were ugly as shit.
James Peters: Minerva taking control of this match and trying to launch Ryan with a sambo suplex! This overhead throw, but Ryan has a hand on the top rope! He’s fighting Minerva for this one! She releases the hold and goes for another punch! SHE DROPS A FIST ON THE TEMPLE OF RYAN! AND AGAIN! TWO HUGE PUNCHES TO WILSON AND HE’S TEETERING AGAINST THE ROPES! WILSON IS ON WOBBLY LEGS, MINERVA IS ROLLING RIGHT NOW AND SHE’S LOOKING TO CONTINUE THE ONSLAUGHT!
Rich Russillo: MINERVA CHARGES- INTO THE GUNS TUN! THE GUN STUN HIT THIS TIME, RYAN DROVE HER FACE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS AS MINERVA GOES DOWN HARD! MINERVA IS DOWN AND RYAN WILSON IN A FLASH HAS CHANGED THIS TIDES OF THE MATCH! RYAN NOW LIFTING MINERVA UP TO HER FEET, RYAN WILSON WANTS TO FINISH IT HERE AND NOW! RYAN WILSON LOOKING FOR A SUPLEX?! NO! IT’S A BRAINBUSTER! RYAN THROWS MINERVA UP AND SLAMS HER BACK DOWN, SKULL FIRST INTO THE CANVAS! RYAN HITS THE BRAINBUSTER AND GOES FOR THE COVER ON MINERVA!!
James Peters: KICKOUT! MINERVA POWERS OUT AT 2, STRONG KICKOUT FROM MINERVA AFTER A DEVASTATING BRAINBUSTER FROM RYAN WILSON! I ACTUALLY THOUGHT HE MIGHT HAVE HAD HER THERE!
Persephone: That’s why you suck and you can’t commentate.
Rich Russillo: Anyway, Minerva got out of that crazy sequence from Wilson, but Ryan is rolling right now and Minerva is going for a ride on the wild side! Ryan clutching his neck as he rises to his feet and grabs Minerva by the hair- Minerva pops up with a poke to the eye of Ryan! Ryan grabs his eye and stumbles back as the referee warns Minerva, but she doesn’t care! Ryan turns around and is met with a forearm to the gut! Wilson just got the wind taken out of him and now Minerva grabs the arm of Wislon and tries to pull him into a fisherman’s suplex! Wilson is fighting out of it this time and tries to shoot off a big elbow to the skull of Minerva!
James Peters: Minerva ducked under that one and grabbed Wilson’s back! I THINK WILSON IS GOING FOR THE RIDE! MINERVA SENDS HIM ACROSS THE RING WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! MINERVA WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX THAT DROPS WILSON ON HIS HEAD AND HE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING JUST TRYING TO DO ANYTHING TO AVOID THE MINERVA ATTACK!
Rich Russillo: It doesn’t matter! Minerva isn’t holding back right now! She wants to punish Ryan WIlson tonight, these two have been spitting venom all week and this match has been a back and forth hard-hitting affair! Now MINERVA SIGNALING FOR AN ATTACK, SHE’S BOUNDING OFF THE ROPES! HERE SHE GOES! BASEBALL SLIDE DROPKICK TO THE OUTSIDE- NO! RYAN EVADES THE ATTACK AND SLIDES TO THE SIDE OF MINERVA! He grabs her leg and yanks her to the outside, what a brilliant counter from Ryan! WILSON HEADBUTTS THE SNOT OUT OF MINERVA AND NOW GRABS THE WOOZIE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION BY THE WAIST! HERE GOES WILSON!
James Peters: RYAN WITH A GUTWRENCH SUPLEX ON THE FLOOR! HE JUST THREW HIMSELF AND MINERVA TO THE FLOOR WITH THAT ROUGH GUTWRENCH SUPLEX! Minerva’s body shook against the floor, I think I heard her organs smack against her ribcage! That was nasty from Wilson! Now Wilson on top, the ground and pound from the New Breed champion! Fists and elbows being dropped on the face of Minerva, she’s trying to cover up, but Ryan Wilson just busted her wide open! A big gash above the right eyebrow of Minerva is spilling blood on the both of them!
Persephone: It’s probably period blood, that’s why she’s such a bitch right now. Well, she’s a bitch all the time.
James Peters: Sounds familiar..
James Peters: Ryan Wilson is cranking the wheel of this match’s momentum his way and has been for a few minutes now, Ryan is looking as good as he ever has and honestly, he looks as if he could beat the National Elite champion tonight!
Rich Russillo: That would be huge for his reign as champion, to do something that Andre only did once as champion, beat another champion on your brand! Ryan Wilson has been proving to us all that he belongs in the conversation with the best champion in EAW since he won it! And maybe most vicious, look at him! He’s grabbing the face of Minerva and pushing it against the edge of the barricade! He’s pressing her head against that edge as hard as he can!
James Peters: Ryan Wilson trying to just inflict pain at this point! He’s not even thinking about the result- Wait! Ryan, what are you doing?! He looks like he’s pulling the padding off that barricade, it’s straight steel right now! Ryan has evil intentions with that barricade- Minerva is able to break free and deliver a big punch to Ryan! That one wobbled him, NOW SHE’S BITING HIS EAR! THAT’S TOO MUCH TYSON, TOO MUCH TYSON! MINERVA IS BITING THE EAR OF RYAN AND NOW HIS EAR IS BLEEDING! HE’S BLEEDING INTO THE MOUTH OF MINERVA! SHE DOESN’T CARE, SHE’S TRYING TO RIP HIS EAR OFF LIKE A SODA LID! RYAN CAN’T PRY HER OFF, HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!
Rich Russillo: WILSON IS GRIPPING VIOLENTLY AT MINERVA, PULLING HER BY HER HAIR, RYAN IS TRYING TO RIP THE HAIR OUT BY THE ROOTS- WAIT, RYAN! DON’T DO IT, RYAN, DON’T! RYAN’S GOT MINERVA UP AND HE RUNS HER SPINE FIRST INTO THE EXPOSED BARRICADE! MINERVA’S BACK JUST RAMMED INTO THAT STEEL BARRICADE! SHE DROPS TO THE GROUND AS RYAN SCREAMS AT HIS BLEEDING EAR!
Persephone: EW, STAY OVER THERE YOU HOBO LOOKING FUCK!
Rich Russillo: RYAN WILSON IS WALKING TOWARDS US AND NOW DRIPPING A TRAIL OF BLOOD FROM HIS EAR! BLOOD DROPS ARE COVERING THE SURFACE OF OUR TABLE! RYAN AND MINERVA ARE BOTH BLOODIED AND EXHAUSTED, BUT NOW RYAN IS INFURIATED! HIS EAR WAS NEARLY CHEWED IN HALF BY THIS GODDAMN DOBERMAN THAT WE CALL OUR NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION!
James Peters: You’re right, Rich, Ryan looks disgusted that Minerva would dare bite him! LOOK AT RYAN, HE CHARGES IN WITH A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! BUT MINERVA SIDESTEPS RYAN AND HE GOES HIP FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! HE DROPS TO HIS KNEES AS MINERVA SEES THE MOMENT OF OPPORTUNITY! RYAN IS WEAK, HE JUST WENT BODY FIRST INTO THAT EXPOSED STEEL! NOW MINERVA SCOOPS RYAN UP, SHE’S GOT HIM IN POSITION FOR A BODY SLAM! A BODY SLAM ON THE FLOOR- NO SHE WANTS TO DRIVE HIM DOWN ON THE APRON!
Rich Russillo: LOOK AT RYAN, HE’S FIGHTING AND KICKING, HE WON’T ALLOW HIMSELF TO BE FINISHED HERE AND NOW! MINERVA IS FORCED TO DROP HIM TO THE FLOOR, BESIDE THE APRON- BANG! NO! RYAN HIT MINERVA IN THE CROTCH! RYAN WILSON JUST CLOCKED MINERVA WHERE THE SUN DON’T SHINE! RYAN RARELY EVER IS PUSHED TO THESE LIMITS, BUT TURNABOUT IS FAIR PLAY! MINERVA HAS BEEN CUTTING CORNERS THIS WHOLE MATCH, IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL RYAN EVENED THE SCORE!
James Peters: THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE IT! RYAN WILSON WAS SO CLOSE TO THE APRON THAT THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE THE LOW BLOW!
Persephone: How much of a loser do you have to be to punch a woman in the vagina? Okay Donald Trump LMFAO.
James Peters: Minerva is trying to catch her breath as Ryan Wilson is laughing at her! Ryan Wilson’s eyes are as wide as Jake Smith’s forehead, he’s got that crazed look on his face! Ryan Wilson grabbing Minerva and rolling her back into the ring, he rolls in after her and calls for her to get to her feet, Ryan Wilson knows that this could be his chance! Minerva uses the turnbuckles to get to her feet, but Ryan is waiting to strike! HERE HE GOES! RYAN CHARGES ACROSS THE RING AND SOARS WITH THE HELLUVA KICK!!!
Rich Russillo: MINERVA SIDESTEPPED HIM! MINERVA SIDESTEPS THE KICK AND RYAN WILSON CLOCKS HIS OWN GRAPES! WHAT GOES AROUND WILL COME BACK AROUND, RYAN! RYAN TRYING TO PRY HIS LEG OFF THE TOP ROPE, MINERVA TURNS HIM AROUND AND HEADBUTTS HIM TO HELL! BUT SHE’S NOT DONE! SHE GRABS HIS HEAD AND DELIVERS REPEATED HEADBUTTS TO HIS FEET! SHE’S BLOODYING RYAN WILSON WITH HER OWN BLOOD AND HIS! THEY’RE BOTH A MESS!
James Peters: Man! Ryan Wilson almost falls but the top rope keeps him on his feet! NOW MINERVA GRABS HIS EAR AGAIN! NO TIME FOR RYAN TO REST, MINERVA RIPS AT THE EAR OF RYAN WILSON! HE SCREAMS IN PAIN AS HE THROWS A WILD LARIAT TOWARDS MINERVA! SHE DUCKS UNDER IT AND SPINS HIM AROUND, NOW THROWING HIM UP AND DOWN WITH A SPINEBUSTER! THAT SPINEBUSTER SHOOK THE FACE OF THE PLANET, RYAN WILSON LOOKS OUT OF IT!
Rich Russillo: MINERVA KNOWS THIS COULD BE HER CHANCE TO AFFIRM HERSELF AS THE DOMINANT CHAMPION HERE! ESTABLISH THE HIERARCHY AND TO ONCE MORE SHOW EAW THAT NEW EDEN IS ON TOP AND NOBODY CAN DO SHIT ABOUT IT! HERE GOES MINERVA! SHE GRABS THE HEAD OF RYAN WILSON, LOOKING FOR ‘PARADISE LOST’!!! MINERVA TRIES TO SWING HER LEGS OUT, NO! RYAN WILSON PLANTS A FOOT AND DRIVED BACKWARDS! HE DRIVES HIMSELF AND MINERVA INTO THE ROPES AND THEY BOTH TUMBLE TO THE CANVAS!
James Peters: BACK TO SQUARE ONE, THEY’RE BOTH GETTING TO THEIR FEET! RYAN WILSON RUNS TOWARDS MINERVA, SHE DUCKS UNDER HIS CLOTHESLINE AND GRABS HIM FOR AN STO! HE’S ABLE TO GRAB HER WRIST AND DANCE HIS WAY OUT OF THIS HOLD, RYAN GRABS MINERVA’S FACE AND COLLIDES IT WITH HIS KNEE CAP! A CAR CRASH BETWEEN THE KNEE OF WILSON AND JAW OF MINERVA! SHE’S SHOOK, SHE’S ON WOBBLY LEGS, SHE’S DOING THE CHICKEN DANCE!
Rich Russillo: WILSON SHOVES HER BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, RUNS TO THE OTHER SIDE AND COMES ZOOMING BACK!!! HELLUVA KICK!!! A LIGHTNING QUICK HELLUVA KICK THAT LOOKED LIKE IT BROKE THE NECK OF MINERVA! OH MY GOD, I FELT THE WHIPLASH ON THAT ONE! I COULD FEEL THE ENERGY OF RYAN’S BOOT SENDING MINERVA’S NECK INTO ANOTHER GALAXY WITH THAT TREMENDOUS KICK!
James Peters: OH MY GOD, RICH, HE’S GONNA HIT IT! MINERVA FALLS INTO THE ARMS OF RYAN, WHO LOOKS LIKE HE’S GONNA EXPLODE WITH ALL THE ENERGY THAT’S COURSING THROUGH HIS VEINS! HE GRAB THE FALLING MINERVA, HERE HE GOESSSSSS!!! RYAN WILSON SPINS HER AROUND, HIGH IN THE SKIES AND BRINGS HER CRASHING DOWN TO REALITY WITH ‘LA BOMBE BLEUUUUUUU’!!!!! THAT SPINNING BOMB, ‘LA BOMBE BLEU’ JUST RATTLED MINERVA TO HER CORE!!!!! AND IT MIGHT HAVE PUT HER DOWN FOR THE COUNT, RYAN WILSONS EES THE WRITING ON THE WALL AND HIS FUTURE AS BRIGHT AS EVER!!!! HE HOOKS BOTH LEGS AND GOES FOR THE COVER ON MINERVA!!! RYAN WILSON FOR THE WIN!!!
Rich Russillo: KICKOUT!!! KICKOUTLALLDLD!!! KICKOUT! SHE KICKED OUT, SHE’S ALIVE, THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION AND FACE OF NEW EDEN’S FIGHTING SPIRIT IS ALIVE!!!
Persephone: FUCKING DAMNIT!!! HE SHOULD HAVE PUT THIS DUMB GINGER AWAY RIGHT THERE AND THEN!! I HATE THESE TWO REDHEADS!!!
James Peters: SHE JUST HAD HER ENTIRE JAW DISASSEMBLED WITH THAT KICK AND HER ORGANS RATTLED LIKE A RATTLESNAKE, SHE STILL. KICKED. OUT. WHAT A WARRIOR THIS WOMAN IS, NO MATTER HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT MINERVA, YOU KNOW WHAT, BOTH OF THESE COMPETITORS, NO MATTER HOW YOU FEEL, YOU CANNOT DENY THE HEART AND THE FIGHTING SPIRIT!! THIS HAS BEEN A WAR OF ATTRITION AND NEITHER IS TAKING A STEP BACK!
Rich Russillo: RYAN WILSON CAN’T BELIEVE MINERVA POWERED OUT, HE’S AS STUNNED AS THIS CROWD, BUT THEY’RE ON THEIR FEET FOR THIS ONE! WHAT A CHAMPION VS. CHAMPION MATCH! THOUGH THIS MATCH NOW MUST GO ON AND RYAN WILSON KNOWS IF HE’S GONNA PUT MINERVA DOWN FOR THE COUNT, HE HAS TO DO IT RIGHT NOW! SHE’S BADLY HURT AND IS STILL REELING FROM THAT VICIOUS SEQUENCE FROM WILSON!
James Peters: HE GRABS MINERVA BY THE EARS AND DRAGS HER TO THE TURNBUCKLES, PULLING HER UP TO HER FEET AND SCREAMING IN HER FACE, RYAN IS LIVID HE DIDN’T FINISH THIS MATCH! HE SAYS THAT THE NEW BREED TITLE IS….’SELF EXPLANATORY’!!! RYAN WILSON WITH THE FORESHADOWING, HE WANTS TO MAKE A STATEMENT ABOUT HIS TITLE REIGN! HE HEADS TO THE CORNER AND RUNS BACK TOWARDS MINERVA, HE JUMPS WITH THE ‘SELF EXCPK<ANATORY’ SUPERMAN PUNCH- HOLY SHIT!!!
Rich Russillo: MINERVA COUNTERED WITH AN SOT MID-AIR!!! SHW GRABBED RYAN IN THE AIR AND PLANTED HIM WITH AN STO, RYAN IS ABSOLUTELY CRIPPLED!!! OH MY LORD!!!
James Peters: EVEN PERSEPHONE KNEW THAT WAS FUCKING AMAZING, LADIES AND GENTLEMAN!
Persephone: YEAH, BUT YOU STILL SUCK AT YOUR JOB, YOU WALKING DILDO!!!
James Peters: :will:
Rich Russillo: MINERVA KNOWS THIS COULD BE THE TIME TO FIND THE FINISH, RYAN WILSON IS JUST BARELY ON HIS KNEES!
Rich Russillo: SHUSH! MINERVA PUNCHES RYAN IN THE KIDNEY AS HE GETS TO HIS FEET AND CURLS AGAINST THE ROPES! MINERVA NOW DELIVERING A SCISSOR KICK TO THE SKULL OF RYAN, DROPPING HIM TO THE SECOND ROPE, HIS BODY IS DRAPED ON THE SECOND ROPE AND HIS LEGS ARE LAYING IN THE RING! THIS POSITION IS NOT GOOD FOR RYAN!
James Peters: LOOK AT MINERVA, THE DROPKICK IS GONNA HIT THIS TIME, OH BOY! SHE CHARGES WITH A SLIDING DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF RYAN’S NECK THAT PUSHES HIS NECK AGAINST THE ROPES AND SENDS HIM COUGHING TO THE CANVAS! RYAN JUST GOT HiS THROAT SNAPPED AGAINST THAT MIDDLE ROPE AND HE CAN’T BREATHE! THAT WAS A MOVE OUT OF RYAN’S PLAYBOOK! HE’S SCRAMBLING TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLES, HE’S ASKING THE RINGSIDE OFFICIALS FOR HELP! HE NEEDS WATER!!
Persephone: Now why in God’s name would a man who is suffocating need water? You are one dumb motherfucker. Really.
James Peters: BUT THEY’RE NOT HELPING HIM AND MINERVA IS LOOKING TO CLOSE OUT THIS SHOWSTOPPER RIGHT HERE AND NOW! ‘SHE’S CALLING FOR THE ‘DEVIL’S TOUCH’!! A SUPERKICK THAT WOULD SURELY PLANT RYAN FOR THE COUNT! MINERVA IS CALLING FOR IT AND RYAN WILSON TURNS AROUND, HERE WE GO- NO! RYAN DUCKS UNDER IT AND MINERVA IS LEFT FIGHTING WITH HIS SHADOW! SHE TURNS AROUND AND RYAN MEETS HER CHIN WITH ‘SELF EXPLANATORY’!!!! HE HIT IT!! THAT SUPERMAN PUNCH JUST PUT MINERVA ON UNCERTAIN LEGS!!!
Rich Russillo: BANGGG!!! BABNNGGNGNGM!!!! MINERVA WITH THE ‘DEVIL’S TOUCH’!!!!! MINERVA SUPERKICKED RYAN INTO OBLIVION AND HE FALLS AGAINST THE ROPES, WHAT A COMEBACK FROM MINERVA- NOW RYAN COMES OFF THE ROPES WITH NOTHING BUT ADRENALINE IN HIS VEINS! HE’S THE KING OF THE DEAD RIGHT NOW, HE TURNS MINERVA INSIDE OUT WITH A LARIAT!! SENT HER BODY FLYING WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE!!!
James Peters: RYAN WILSON JUST TOOK MINERVA FOR A RIDE AND NOW HE’S HEADING TO THE TOP ROPE!!! WHAT IN GOD’S NAME IS HE DOING?!? RYAN WILSON ASCENDING THE STAIRWAY TO EITHER IMMORTALITY, OR A STEEP FALL FROM GLORY!! RYAN NOW YELLING, FILLED WITH ENERGY AND TRYING TO SUMMON UP THE WILL TO FLY!!! HE’S CALLING FOR THE ELBOW DROPPPPPP!!!! RYAN WILSON FROM THE TOP….AND HE FLIEEESSSSSSS WITH AN ELBOWWWW DROPPPPPPP FROM THE TOP-
Rich Russillo: MINERVA ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY AND WILSON CRASHED INTO THE CANVAS!!!! HARD FALL FOR RYAN AS HE GRABS HIS ELBOW, NO WATER IN THE POOL FOR THE NEW BREED CHAMPIONE!!
James Peters: AND MINERVA KNOWS THAT! SHE KNOWS RYAN JUST FELL HARD AND ALL THE EFFORT HE HAD LEFT WAS JUST WASTED! THIS IS HER CHANCE, FOR NEW EDEN!!!! MINERVA LIFTS RYAN TO HIS FEET, SHE LOOKS FOR ‘ATLAS FALLS’!!!!! SHE LIFTS RYAN UP AND TRIES TO TWIST- NO! RYAN DROPS A KNEE ON THE HEAD OF MINERVA, COUNTERING THE POSSIBLE ‘ATLAS FALLS’!!!!
Rich Russillo: RYAN STILL FIGHTING! NOW SURGING TOWARDS MINERVA WITH AN ATTACK! SHE DUCKS UNDER IT AND GRABS RYAN IN AN INVERTED FACELOCK!!! OH, NO!!!!!!!! MINERVA SWINGS HER LEGS AND SLAMS THE BACK OF RYAN’S HEAD ONTO THE CANVS WITH ‘PARADISE LOST’!!! SHE JUST DROPPED HIM HARD AND THIS HAS TO BE IT!! IT IS OVER, RYAN IS DONE, WHAT A MOVE FROM MINERVA!! SHE HOOKS THE LEGS OF WILSON, THIS IS IT!!
James Peters: LKCICKKTOTOIOTIOT!!! KICKOUT!!! KICKOUT!! RYAN KICKED OUT, RYAN WILSON NOW WITH AN UNBELIEVABLE KICK OUT OF HIS OWN!!!
Rich Russillo: THESE TWO ARE DISPLAYING A DIFFERENT LEVEL OF DETERMINATION TO FIGHT! OH MY GOD!!
Persephone: OH MY GOD IS RIGHT, OH MY GOD, THIS SHIT IS TAKING SO FUCKING LONG! END THE FUCKING MATCH SOMEONE, RING THE BELL, THEY BOTH LOSE FOR BEING CUNTHEADS!!
James Peters: BUT LOOK AT MINERVA, SHE’S ENRAGED! SHE CANNOT FATHOM RYAN WILSON STILL BEING IN THIS MATCH AFTER THAT! HE HAS NOTHING LEFT BUT HE FOUND IT SOMEWHERE TO KICK OUT!!! THAT’S AMAZING! RYAN WILSON IS A WARRIOR, BUT IF HE’S A WARRIOR, MINERVA IS A GODDESS BECAUSE SHE’S ABOUT TO SLAY THE NEW BREED CHAMPION FOR THE FINAL TIME!
Rich Russillo: OH MY GOD, HERE IT IS!!! ‘THE STIR OF ECHOES’!!!! MINERVA IS MOUNTED ON TOP OF RYAN AND IS DRIVING HER NAILS INTO HIS SKIN!!! SHE’S CUTTING HIM UP AND HE CAN DO NOTHING BUT TRY AND TAKE THIS PAIN, HE HAS NOTHING LEFT! SHE’S SLICING UP HIS SKIN AND PUNISHING HIM! SOMEONE NEEDS TO END THIS! EITHER THE REFEREE SHOULD CALL THIS OE SOMEONE NEEDS TO GET A NEW REFEREE BECAUSE RYAN IS ON THE VERGE OF PASSING OUT FROM THIS PAIN!
James Peters: WAIT, LOOK AT MINERVA, SHE WANTS A STATEMENT WIN! SHE WANTS TO ONCE MORE SHOW NEW EDEN IS UNSTOPPABLE, THEY DON’T WIN BY A CLOSE GAp, THEY MARGINALIZE THEMSELVES FROM THEIR OPPONENTS! MIENRVA GOING TO FINISH OFF ‘THE STIR OF ECHOES’ WITH THE STO! ON FINAL BLOW TO RYAN WILSON! SHE LIFTS RYAN UP AND TELLS HIM IT’S OVER!
Rich Russillo: MINERVA NOW FINISHES ‘THE STIR OF ECHOES’ WITH THE-
James Peters: –
Rich Russillo: RYAN NOW GETS UNDER THE ARM OF MINERVA AND THROWS HER DOWN WITH AN STO OF HIS OWN!!! RYAN FUCKING WILSON!!!! RYAN DELIEVRED THE STO TO MINERVA AND NOW RYAN WILSON LIFTS MINERVA FOR HE ‘MIC DROP’!!! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE ‘MIC DROP’ AND THIS WILL SURELY FINISH MINERVA OFF!!! RYAN WILSON LIFTS HER UP AND HE, NO!!! RYAN CAN’T FINISH IT AND MINERVA GETS TO HER FEET, RYAN GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE AND MINERVA CATCHES HIM, ‘THE STIR OF ECHOESSSSSS’!!!! ONE FINAL TIME!!! THE STO HIT AND DESTROYS RYAN WILSON!
James Peters: OH MY GOD, LOOK AT MINERVA, SHE’S LIFTING WILSON UP ONE MORE TIME, THE STATEMENT IS GOING TO BE MADE!!! MINERVA DELIVERS ONE FINAL DEVASTATING STO!!! STATEMENT. MADE. MINERVA DROPS TO THE CANVAS AND COVERS THE LEGS OF RYAN WILSON, SHE HOLDS HER HAND IN THE AIR AND PINS THE NEW BREED CHAMPION!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER….. THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION, MMIIIINNEERRRVVAAAA!!!!!!
James Peters: THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION DID IT, MINERVA DID IT, NEW EDEN DID IT! RYAN WILSON IS DEFEATED AND MINERVA WILL LEAVE WITH A HUGE VICTORY!!
(‘Blood, Milk & Sky’ begins to play as Minerva rolls away from Ryan, not able to lift herself up to receive the hand raised, but she does smack the National Elite title from the referee and and chooses to wipe the blood from her face without it.)
James Peters: Wow, what a match. I can’t get over that war, that might be the best match we’ve seen so far this season. They left EVERYTHING out there and didn’t back down an inch. What a statement for both of them and for New Eden in particular.
Persephone: Minerva just showed she could beat a bum with ALL of her effort, that is a strong statement, you’re right.
Rich Russillo: I’m not sure I agree, Perse. I mean, Ryan has no reason to hang his head. He showed the world that he’s not the same Ryan Wilson that he was a year ago, six months ago, or even last week. He continues to get better and show the world that he will climb the ranks with the New Breed title by his side.
Persephone: Yeah, okay.
James Peters: Agreed, Rich, but tonight, Minerva and New Eden will revel in a massive and hard fought victory.
(Minerva rolls out of the ring and makes her way up the stage. Ryan Wilson is holding his title and looks angry that Minerva left with the win. The chapter between these two appears all but finished.)
James Peters: What a match and what a night so far! Congratulations to Minerva and thank you to all of you for sticking with us on Sunday Night Voltage! We’ll return shortly with more action!
(Voltage fades away from the area.)
( The scene cuts to the backstage area. Sofia Clarke is standing by and joining her is the Universal Women’s Champion, Ms. Extreme! Ms. Extreme is dressed in a pair of short, black jean shorts, Converse sneakers, and her own T-shirt which has been modified and shows off her midriff. Her brightly coloured locks are down and straight, and are showing off the effects of Hikari Kanno’s handiwork. The jagged, uneven ends of Ms. Extreme’s hair is on full display, as is the bandage that is wrapped around her left leg, evidence of last week’s stabbing. The Universal Women’s Championship has been thrown over Ms. Extreme’s shoulder, and she wears an extremely focused look on her face. No doubt she is going to have a lot to say about what happened last week. )
Sofia Clarke: Ladies and gentlemen, last week the Universal Women’s Champion, Ms. Extreme, met her challenger at Bloodsport, Hikari Kanno, in the middle of the ring so they could spin the Wheel of Death. Tensions were high between both champ and challenger, and ultimately it was the champion who gave the wheel a spin. As we all know, the Universal Women’s Championship will be on the line in only the second ever Scaffold Match in EAW history, but it’s what happened after that got the entire EAW Universe buzzing.
( At this, Ms. Extreme is heard scoffing. Clearly, Hikari struck a nerve and Sofia’s smile grew even bigger as she gestured towards the champion. )
Sofia Clarke: As you can see, my guest at this time is none other than the EAW Universal Women’s Champion… Ms. Extreme! Ms. Extreme, before we even get started, how is your leg? Will you be cleared to compete at Bloodsport?
( Ms. Extreme can’t help but roll her eyes. )
Ms. Extreme: This is my third season on Voltage. I’m pretty sure a shitty stab wound to my leg isn’t going to be what finally does me in. Once upon a time I got blown up by North Korea and lived to tell about it. You’ve really got to have something wrong with you if you think that I’m going to let something like this *she motions to her left leg* hamper me in any way, shape, or form.
Sofia Clarke: That’s fair enough. Things between Hikari Kanno and yourself took another turn last week, when she stabbed you in the leg to keep you down and took a pair of scissors to your hair. We can all see the physical damage that she did, but how are you feeling mentally after she attempted to humiliate you?
( Ms. Extreme runs her fingers through her uneven hair and holds it up, motioning for the camera to get a good look at it. )
Ms. Extreme: I’m not the one who got signed to EAW because she was an OnlyFans star. I’ve never been the one to use my looks to get ahead. I will admit that from time to time, I like to pamper myself. I get the occasional mani and pedi, especially when Candice drags me to the salon with her, and I like getting my hair done. What Hikari attempted to do last week was strip away some of my dignity, but I don’t feel embarrassed. I don’t even feel violated. She knows that in just a few weeks she is going to get her ass beat in her very first world championship match and sent to the back of the line after she fails to win this belt off me, so she’s desperate. She attacked me when I wasn’t fully focused on her, and I’ll accept the responsibility for that because I know how big the target on my back is, and she did one of the lowest things a human being could ever do to another one, all in an attempt to get inside my head. She cut my hair and shoved it down my throat. It was pathetic. It reeked of desperation. All it did was prove to me that I’m the one inside of Hikari’s head seeing as how she had to resort to such cheap tactics to get at me. My hair will grow back, Sofia, or I can simply pay to get it fixed. But what isn’t going to change is Hikari Kanno’s Bloodsport fate. She’s going to find herself on the receiving end of the worst loss she’s ever suffered in her entire career, and I’m not fucking around when I say that. So many Elitists, including Hikari herself, like to throw around these bold threats while knowing they never have a chance in Hell at backing them up. But we both know that I’m not one of those Elitists. I do exactly what I say I’m going to do and I leave my mark on everyone I meet inside that ring.
Sofia Clarke: Hikari took things a step further this week when she bragged about what she did to you. She admitted that if she had been able to find a pair of clippers, she would have shaved your head bald.
( Ms. Extreme takes a moment to think about that. She’s never been one to lack confidence, and even though having her hair cut in such a degrading fashion didn’t bother her, she does know that Hikari would have taken it a step further if she had been able to. IDOL-GUN are all about shock value, and doing whatever they can to get underneath the skin of their opponents. Last week could have been worse, and deep down, Ms. Extreme knows that. )
Ms. Extreme: I guess we’ll never know if she had those kinds of balls, will we? She had every opportunity to chop off all my hair, but she didn’t take it. She could have done a lot more damage to me, but she didn’t have the guts. Hikari knows that I could fucking snap her neck in half if I wanted, and she did just enough to get my attention without pushing me over the edge. She’s not equipped to face me once I’m pushed to my absolute breaking point, and God fucking knows that no one on this roster is. I’m just different; much different from all these other bitches who are all bark and no bite. I’m not going to make the mistake of assuming Hikari is the same rookie I faced in her very first match like seven months ago. I know better than that. But I know that I’ve been through a ton of ups and downs in EAW. I have competed in some of the most violent matches we have ever seen in this company. I’ve been put through the ringer on more than one occasion and what Hikari did last week was nothing compared to what I’ve been through before. She doesn’t truly know the lengths Ms. Extreme will go too in order to teach some dumbass a lesson. You would think that Hikari would have learned that lesson at Pain for Pride. IDOL-GUN did everything they could to fuck with Harlow Reichert and Xavier Williams and make their match against them personal. They never once stopped to think that perhaps they were going too far. They never bothered to consider that instead of hurting Harlow and Xavier, they were lighting a much needed fire under both of their asses. They paid a lofty price at Pain for Pride for making shit personal with Xavlow and lost their Unified Tag Team Championships in the process.
Ms. Extreme: Now Hikari has set herself up for an even bigger fall come Bloodsport. I just won the Universal Women’s Championship. I’m not about to let this belt go anytime soon. Hikari Kanno is just the first of many who are going to find themselves on the receiving end of an absolute fucking beating. I’m not going to let this belt go, and I’m certainly not going to let it fall in the hands of someone who only wants it as a prop for her photoshoots. IDOL-GUN have proven themselves as capable wrestlers, but at the end of the day, they’re still about nothing more than tits, ass, and sex. I’m not going to judge them for that, but I’m here to be a professional wrestler and nothing more. This was always my dream, and it’s always been my goal to be the absolute best in the world. Now that I’m the premiere world champion here in EAW, I’m finally right where I belong. There aren’t any race baiters or quitters standing in my way now. There are no more disgraceful cunts hanging out who are immediately set up for success and allowed to skip the line for whatever stupid reason. The one constant who’s kept going no matter how many times she got fucked over is finally the one standing at the top and I’m not relinquishing my spot to anyone. Hikari Kanno might be talented, but she’s not ready for a match of this magnitude. She’s not ready to truly take this business seriously and bleed for it. She’s not ready to put in hours of work, improve herself, and get the fuck out of her comfort zone. She’s not ready to be a world champion, and who knows, Sofia? Maybe after I beat the shit out of her and retain my title, I’ll take away what’s left of her pride and shave her head bald.
Sofia Clarke: :gladbron: Did I just hear you right?
( A little smirk crosses Ms. Extreme’s face. )
Ms. Extreme: I wonder how many of the simps have a haircut fetish?
Sofia Clarke: :wow: There is something out there for everyone. Thank you for joining me, Ms. Extreme.
Ms. Extreme: My pleasure. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a match to watch 😉.
( On that note, Ms. Extreme strolls out of the shot, and Sofia signs off, sending Voltage to commercial break. )
(Commercial for UNO featuring Jonny Airhart.)
(The camera fades back to the ring, and Bella Braxton is seen with a microphone in her hand.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen…. The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first…… PLEASE WELCOME THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION….. MS. EXTREME!!!!!
(‘Zombie’ by Bad Wolves hits, and the crowd explodes as Ms. Extreme does exactly what she promised. She makes her way to the stage holding her Universal Women’s Championship, and she walks down towards the ringside area as the crowd continues to cheer. She’s not here to wrestle, but instead to watch the match between Hikari Kanno and Jake Smith.)
James Peters: Here’s Ms. Extreme! Last week Hikari Kanno cut off a piece of her hair, and we all saw what Camille said backstage. I’m excited for Bloodsport, and from the looks of things I think she is too,
Rich Russillo: That’s right. I don’t think she wants to let Hikari get away with what she’s done, and that’s probably why she’s out here now. I’m sure her presence is going to mean something in this match, even if it’s just throwing Hikari off her game!
Persephone: What Camille needs to do is just attack both Jake and Hikari as soon as the bell rings so the match is called off.
(‘Stop Breathing’ by Playboi Carti plays out Jake Smith, who makes his way down to the ring, giving a slight smirk over to a disgusted Ms. Extreme at ringside before doing his signature pose in the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Making his way to the ring! Hailing out of Newark, New Jersey, weighing in at 210 pounds…HE IS THE INDUSTRY RULER…JAKE SMITH!!
James Peters: Last week, Jake Smith took a loss to Chris Elite, however, this week, Jake Smith battles Hikari Kanno, the woman currently slated to face the champion at ringside in Ms. Extreme.
Rich Russillo: Yeah, a win tonight could go a long way for Jake Smith, who’s looking to really make his mark in the landscape of Voltage.
James Peters: Yeah, but Jake’s also making enemies in the landscape of Voltage. Case in point: EAW Hall of Famer, Raven Roberts, who could be watching this match closely.
(Jake leans back in the corner, awaiting the arrival of his opponent in Hikari, who’s ‘Dream In Drive’ by The Oral Cigarettes theme soon plays her out. Hikari does take notice of Ms. Extreme during her entrance, keeping a close on her, but also taunting the Champion before turning her attention over to Jake Smith in the ring.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent! Hailing out of Okinawa, Japan, weighing in at 121 pounds…NIHON NO HŌSEKI…HIKARI KANNO!!
Persephone: What do you know, Hikari looks to be the one thousandth person taller than Jake Smith.
James Peters: Oh, will you stop it? :wow:
Rich Russillo: While we’re back on the topic of Jake Smith, I feel as if tonight could be advantageous to him, I can’t imagine Hikari not dividing some of her attention over to Ms. Extreme on the outside.
James Peters: Yeah, and when you’re in the ring with an opponent cunning like Jake Smith, that can be detrimental. However, Hikari did begin her first title reign here in EAW by beating three other teams alongside Miku Sakai, so this could be a cakewalk for her.
(Both Hikari and Jake stand in their opposite corners as they await the referee to ring the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
James Peters: Here we go! The main event match of Voltage is on, and in a surprising turn of events we have the Universal Women’s Champion Ms. Extreme out here at ringside! Hikari keeps herself focused on the match despite Camille’s presence, meanwhile Jake has a big grin on his face as he must know that this bothers Hikari! Either way both Elitists begin to lock up, and Jake is able to power Hikari into the corner! Jake has Hikari backed up into the corner, and now the referee is forced to begin a count!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE-
Rich Russillo: HIKARI JUST USED HER FOOT TO PULL JAKE INTO A SEATED POSITION, BEFORE HITTING HIM WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE FACE! That smile was immediately wiped off of Jake’s face, and Jake immediately backs up before getting back to his feet! Hikari Kanno goes to capitalize with a headlock, but Jake delivers an elbow to Hikari’s side! Jake now locking in a headlock of his own, AND HIKARI MANAGES TO POWER JAKE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, FREEING HERSELF FROM THE HOLD! Hikari Kanno now drags Jake down by the arm, and I think she’s about to go for a fujiwara armbar!
James Peters: She’s unable to lock it in though, as Jake is quickly able to slip out of her grasp! Jake quickly grabs Hikari in a front facelock, and Hikari immediately goes to counter as she attempts a northern lights suplex, BUT JAKE PULLS HIMSELF BACK DOWN BEFORE GOING FOR A SUPLEX- WHICH HIKARI’S ABLE TO SLIP OUT OF AND LAND ON HER FEET! Hikari Kanno now grabs Jake from behind, AND I THINK SHE WANTED TO ATTEMPT A DRAGON SUPLEX, BUT JAKE IS ABLE TO GET ONE OF HIS ARMS UNDER HIKARI’S ARM AND PULL HER DOWN WITH AN ARM DRAG!
Rich Russillo: Jake now with a rear chinlock on Hikari Kanno, and Jake looks right at Ms. Extreme, who doesn’t look too impressed. We all know how Jake is and sometimes his arrogance gets the better of him, but right now he’s in control of this match as Hikari has to try and escape this rear chinlock! Jake has an upcoming match against Raven Roberts at Bloodsport, and I’m sure he hopes Raven’s watching this while he still has control! Raven is no easy opponent for him, so he needs to be at his best.
Persephone: I don’t know how Hikari’s struggling this much with Jake Smith of all people. He’s like three feet tall at best, Hikari should be able to get out of this easily.
James Peters: Hikari’s getting back up to a knee which forces Jake to transition into a regular headlock, AND HIKARI LIFTS JAKE UP FOR A BACK SUPLEX, BUT JAKE MANAGES TO LAND ON HIS FEET- BUT WAIT! JAKE TRIED TO HIT A CLOTHESLINE BUT HIKARI SLIPPED BEHIND HIM BEFORE DELIVERING A SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Hikari just dropped Jake right onto his neck, that had to hurt!
Rich Russillo: Hikari now goes for the fujiwara armbar, and she properly locks in the submission this time! Jake Smith is in trouble here as Hikari begins to target the arm, and if Jake wants a good chance in this match he needs to get out of this quickly! We all know how much Hikari tends to go after stuff like the arm throughout her matches, and that’s all so she could set up for the ending! Jake doesn’t let things go Hikari’s way though, as he manages to turn himself onto his back and pull Hikari down into a pin!
Persephone: Hikari kicked out 😐. That was only the first pinfall of the match, this better not be one of those overly long matches that really don’t need to be this long whatsoever. I don’t know if the Voltage roster knows this, but we don’t need long matches just for the sake of them being long.
James Peters: Both Elitists get back to their feet after Hikari kicked out of the pin, BUT JAKE KICKS HER IN THE MIDSECTION! Jake now takes Hikari to the corner before smashing her face into the top turnbuckle, and now Jake pulls her up to the top rope! Jake now-
Rich Russillo: WAIT WAIT WAIT! HIKARI JUST GRABBED JAKE’S ARM BEFORE SLIDING OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND OUT OF THE RING, AND SHE HAS JAKE IN A ROPE HUNG ARMBAR! HIKARI CAN’T KEEP THIS SUBMISSION IN FOR LONG, BUT IT’S DEFINITELY GOING TO DO SOME DAMAGE!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! F-
Rich Russillo: HIKARI LETS GO OF THE ARMBAR! Hikari landing on the apron as Jake pulls his arm away in pain, and now Hikari gets up as- ENZUIGIRI BY JAKE! JAKE JUST HIT HIKARI WITH AN ENZUIGIRI OUT OF NOWHERE, AND THAT JUST DROPPED HER BACK DOWN ON THE APRON!
James Peters: Jake Smith climbs out onto the apron before pulling Hikari Kanno back up- AND HIKARI SHOVES JAKE BACK FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST! JAKE JUST CRASHED INTO THE POST AND THAT CAUSED HIM TO FALL OFF THE RING APRON! Jake doesn’t take too long to get back up, BUT HE TOOK LONG ENOUGH FOR HIKARI, WHO RUNS TO THE END OF THE APRON BEFORE DIVING OFF AND CONNECTING WITH A DIVING VARIATION OF THE EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! HIKARI KANNO SENDS JAKE BACK INTO THE RING, AND SEEING HOW QUICKLY SHE SLIDES INTO THE RING I THINK SHE HAS SOMETHING IN MIND!
Rich Russillo: Jake is using the turnbuckles to try and pull himself up, BUT HIKARI RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE DELIVERING A HUGE KNEE STRIKE! Jake drops down into a seated position, AND HIKARI RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE DELIVERING A SECOND KNEE TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! HIKARI RUNS THE ROPES A THIRD TIME, AND NOW THERE’S A THIRD KNEE BY HIKARI KANNO, WHO PULLS JAKE OUT OF THE CORNER BEFORE GOING FOR THE COVER!
Persephone: This better end the match.
Rich Russillo: JAKE KICKS OUT!!!
James Peters: Jake is trying to get back up, but Hikari just kicks him in the side of the head! Hikari’s not even giving Jake a chance to breathe right now, and that’s not a good thing if you’re Jake Smith! We all know what Jake’s capable of, but it doesn’t matter who you are right now. When Hikari Kanno gets going she can easily become one of the most dangerous on the roster!
Persephone: I don’t think it’s hard getting the upper hand against a midget. It’s like fighting that Hasbulla weirdo Andre Walker brought to Pain for Pride.
Rich Russillo: Jake is grabbing onto the ropes to pull himself up, and now Hikari kicks him in the midsection! Hikari now getting Jake’s arm in a hammerlock, BEFORE CHARGING INTO THE CORNER AND SLAMMING THE TRAPPED ARM INTO- WAIT NO! JAKE PUT HIS FOOT BACK ONTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE AND STOPPED HIKARI KANNO FROM DRIVING HIS ARM INTO IT, AND JAKE HITS HIKARI WITH A HEADBUTT TO FREE HIMSELF! You don’t see Jake use stuff like headbutts often but at a time like this I think it was necessary! Either way Hikari was just sent stumbling back!
James Peters: AND THAT ALLOWS JAKE TO CAPITALIZE WITH A HUGE BICYCLE KICK! THAT KICK CONNECTED TO THE SIDE OF HIKARI’S JAW AND TURNED HER AROUND, AND JAKE FOLLOWS UP THE KICK WITH A STRAITJACKET GERMAN SUPLEX! Fantastic move by Jake Smith who looks to be getting back into this match despite the offense he just suffered thanks to Hikari! Hikari Kanno grabs onto the ropes to try and pull herself back up, BUT JAKE RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE HITTING HIKARI WITH A BOOT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! Jake Smith now pulling Hikari into a front facelock…
Rich Russillo: AND JAKE DROPS HIKARI WITH A HUGE BRAINBUSTER!! THE BRAINBUSTER CONNECTS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND NOW JAKE GOES FOR THE COVER TO POSSIBLY PUT AWAY THE CHALLENGER FOR THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP!
Rich Russillo: HIKARI KANNO KICKS OUT!!! It’s a good thing Hikari kicked out of that. I can’t imagine what that’d do to Hikari’s confidence if she lost right there, just weeks before she faces Ms. Extreme for the Universal Women’s Championship! And that’s not even to mention the fact that Camille is out here right now watching the match!
Persephone: It would be pretty embarrassing if she lost to a midget right in front of the Champion. I kinda want it to happen now.
James Peters: Jake Smith pulls himself up onto the middle rope, and he’s waiting for Hikari Kanno to get back up! Jake clearly has something in mind, and I don’t know what it is, but it can’t be good for Hikari! Hikari Kanno is slowly getting back up to her feet, AND NOW JAKE GOES FOR HELL ABOVE- WAIT NO! HIKARI KANNO MANAGES TO HOLD ONTO JAKE BEFORE HE COULD CONNECT WITH THE FLIP PILEDRIVER, AND SHE DELIVERS A HUGE ALABAMA SLAM!!
Rich Russillo: You don’t see Hikari deliver powerhouse moves like those often, especially not to people bigger than her, but had that flip piledriver connected it could’ve been lights out for Hikari! Hikari Kanno isn’t finished after that Alabama slam though! She pulls Jake right back up to his feet, AND SHE DELIVERS THE BRIGHTSTAR!!! THE HIGH ANGLE URANAGE SLAM CONNECTS ON JAKE SMITH, AND NOW THAT MIGHT JUST BE THE END OF THE MATCH! HIKARI KANNO GOES FOR THE COVER!
Rich Russillo: JAKE JUST BARELY MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! That was definitely close though, that could’ve been it!
James Peters: Ms. Extreme hasn’t had any involvement in the outcome of this match so far, and I can see why she hasn’t gotten herself involved! She wants to actually watch Hikari Kanno in action here, and I don’t know what Ms. Extreme is thinking, but if you ask me Hikari has been putting on yet another fantastic performance tonight!
Persephone: That’s the problem, James. We didn’t ask you. Hikari can’t even beat Jake Smith of all people and we’re supposed to believe she can become Universal Women’s Champion? Ms. Extreme is complete trash and at this point I genuinely think she’s gonna squash Hikari.
Rich Russillo: Jake is trying to pull himself towards the ropes, BUT HIKARI JUMPS UP AND HITS A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO JAKE’S BACK! Hikari Kanno now pulls Jake back up to his feet, before taking Jake down with a snapmare! Hikari now runs the ropes- AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT HIKARI WAS GOING FOR, BUT JAKE JUST INTERCEPTED IT BY JUMPING UP AND DELIVERING AN ENZUIGIRI! Jake drops back down to the mat, but he has a smirk on his face as he managed to stop Hikari in her tracks!
James Peters: Both Elitists slowly find their way back up to their feet, BUT AS JAKE GOES TO CAPITALIZE OFF THE ENZUIGIRI, HIKARI DELIVERS A HUGE FOREARM TO JAKE! That forearm caught Jake off guard and caused him to stumble back, BUT NOW JAKE RUNS IN FOR A BICYCLE KICK- WHICH HIKARI AVOIDS, CAUSING JAKE TO RUN INTO THE ROPES, BEFORE BOUNCING BACK, RIGHT INTO ANOTHER SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX BY HIKARI! Hikari Kanno is getting back into this one despite Jake’s attempts to stop her, and I’m a little worried for Jake! What does Hikari have on her mind?
Rich Russillo: Definitely something that’ll put this match away! Hikari Kanno pulls Jake up, AND I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT SHE’S SETTING UP FOR! HIKARI’S TRYING TO SET UP FOR THE KANNO SUPER BUSTER, AND WE’VE ALREADY LEARNED THROUGHOUT THIS MATCH THAT SHE HAS THE STRENGTH TO PULL IT OFF, BUT JAKE IS ABLE TO GRAB ONTO HIKARI’S LEG AND TAKE HER DOWN BEFORE SHE COULD LIFT HIM UP! Jake looking to capitalize off of that, but Hikari uses both boots to push Jake away from her! Hikari now getting back up before charging in-
James Peters: WAIT!!! JAKE JUST SCOOPED HIKARI UP, AND HE DROPS HER WITH ULTIMA!! THE REVERSE BRAINBUSTER CONNECTS ON ONE HALF OF THE FORMER UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS AND THE CURRENT CHALLENGER TO THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, AND NOW JAKE COVERS HIKARI, PURPOSELY LOOKING AT THE CHAMPION AS HE DOES SO! I THINK JAKE IS TRYING TO SEND A MESSAGE TO CAMILLE, SAYING THAT HE’S EVEN BETTER THAN SOMEONE FIGHTING FOR A WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
Persephone: Sending a message? For what? He can’t even challenge for her title… Can he?
James Peters: HIKARI KANNO GETS THE SHOULDER UP!
Persephone: Nevermind then. It wouldn’t matter if he could challenge for it because he doesn’t know how to win matches anyway.
Rich Russillo: Jake doesn’t look too happy to see Hikari kick out of that pin, and he even looked up at the referee, but the ref just told him that it was only two! Jake getting back to his feet now, AND THERE’S A HUGE STOMP TO HIKARI’S FACE! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER! Once upon a time this was one of the most dangerous moves in Jake’s arsenal as he just viciously stomps on his opponents face, but even if he doesn’t call it “crushcrushcrush” anymore it’s still doing just as much damage to Hikari Kanno, who’s doing her best to try and shield her face from the stomps!
James Peters: Hikari Kanno pulls herself out onto the apron before finding her way back up to her feet, AND JAKE GOES TO TRY AND ATTACK, BUT HIKARI DUCKS DOWN AND SENDS HER SHOULDER INTO JAKE’S MIDSECTION, BEFORE GRABBING JAKE’S FACE AND DELIVERING A STUNNER ONTO THE TOP ROPE! Hikari seated on the apron, and she’s right in front of Ms. Extreme! Hikari and Camille look like they’re sharing a few words, and I can’t tell what they’re saying but after these past few weeks, I’m sure it’s nothing good-
Rich Russillo: JAKE NEARLY DROPKICKED HIKARI OFF OF THE APRON INTO CAMILLE, BUT HIKARI JUST BARELY MANAGED TO GET OUT OF THE WAY, CAUSING JAKE TO SLIDE UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE OUT OF THE RING! Ms. Extreme is lucky to come out of that unscathed, BUT JAKE DOESN’T HAVE THE SAME LUCK, AS HIKARI KANNO RUNS IN AND HITS JAKE WITH A JUMPING KNEE! That was some excellent awareness by Hikari Kanno, as things could’ve gone extremely badly right then and there!
James Peters: Hikari rolls Jake back into the ring, and she looks back at Ms. Extreme one more time, who just points back in the ring, pretty much telling her to pay attention. Hikari just rolls her eyes before climbing back onto the ring apron and entering the ring- WAIT A SECOND! JAKE SMITH RUSHES BACK TO HIS FEET AND GRABS HIKARI BEFORE SHE COULD FULLY GET BACK UP TO HER FEET, AND NOW THERE’S A SPIKE DDT BY JAKE! JAKE JUST DELIVERED A HUGE SPIKE DDT, CATCHING HIKARI KANNO BY SURPRISE JUST AS SHE WAS ENTERING THE RING!
Persephone: Well didn’t Ms. Extreme tell her to pay attention? That’s Hikari’s fault.
Rich Russillo: Jake is still hurt after everything that transpired in the past few minutes so he’s using the ropes to help pull himself back up to his feet, and I think he’s got another big move on his mind! Jake grabs Hikari Kanno and puts her in a headlock position, BEFORE DRILLING HER INTO THE MAT WITH IN BLOOM! JAKE SMITH CONNECTS WITH IN BLOOM, AND THAT’S A DEVASTATING MOVE TO CONNECT WITH THIS LATE IN THE MATCH! THAT MIGHT BE ENOUGH TO GET THE JOB DONE! THE COVER NOW BY JAKE!
Persephone: Another kickout 🙄.
James Peters: Jake Smith is just punching away at Hikari now, and neither Jake nor Hikari are strangers to using dirty or underhanded tactics in order to get the advantage in a match, but right now this has just been a battle! This has been such a physical match, and it may not be over just yet but it could be very soon! Hikari Kanno is slowly getting back up to her feet, AND NOW JAKE RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE ATTEMPTING A SHINING WIZARD TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD-
Rich Russillo: AND IT DOESN’T CONNECT!! HIKARI KANNO JUST BARELY MANAGED TO DUCK UNDER IT! Hikari’s still hurting after getting hit with In Bloom and isn’t able to capitalize afterwards, but she did avoid getting hit with that huge shining wizard! Jake quickly gets back up and grabs Hikari- BUT HIKARI PULLS JAKE DOWN INTO A SMALL PACKAGE ROLL UP!
Rich Russillo: JAKE SMITH KICKS OUT, BUT HIKARI IMMEDIATELY TRANSITIONS INTO AN ARMBAR! HIKARI KANNO HAS JAKE IN AN ARMBAR, AND THAT’S NOT GOOD FOR JAKE! JAKE MIGHT BE FORCED TO TAP OUT!
James Peters: JAKE IS SCRAMBLING AROUND IN THE ARMBAR, AND HE’S IN A LOT OF TROUBLE NOW! Hikari Kanno has been trying to target Jake’s arm throughout the match, and for the most part Jake has been able to avoid some of the offense, but not right now! Right now Jake is stuck in this armbar and he might not be able to get out! At this rate Jake might be done for! I don’t know if I see him getting out of this submission, he really might have to tap out here!
Persephone: Well he needs to hurry up and tap! I don’t have all night here!
Rich Russillo: Jake now is trying to get back into this as he gets onto a knee, but Hikari Kanno is able to transition into a triangle choke! Jake manages to get up to both feet anyway, but you can tell that he’s struggling in this submission! Jake is slowly dragging himself and Hikari towards the ropes, and he’s beginning to slow down! This match is really taking a toll on Jake, BUT HE MANAGES TO FALL BACK INTO THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND HE GETS HIS FOOT ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE! JAKE JUST FORCED THE BREAK AND SAVED THE MATCH FOR HIMSELF!
James Peters: Hikari lets go of the submission, and Jake immediately rolls himself out of the ring to try and recover! Hikari definitely did some damage, AND NOW SHE LOOKS TO DO MORE AS SHE RUNS THE ROPES! DROPKICK UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE BY HIKARI KANNO, SENDING JAKE CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE! Hikari Kanno now sending Jake back into the ring, and this time she clearly learned from her mistakes as she slides under the bottom rope to re-enter! Once again Hikari’s not giving Jake a chance to breathe, AND NOW SHE RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE-
Rich Russillo: JAKE DUCKS WHAT WAS GOING TO BE A HUGE LARIAT, AND NOW HE GRABS HIKARI FROM BEHIND BEFORE GOING FOR ULTIMA- WAIT NO! HIKARI KANNO MANAGES TO FLIP OUT OF IT BEFORE GRABBING JAKE FROM BEHIND, AND GOING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX- WAIT NO! JAKE HITS HIKARI WITH A BACK ELBOW TO THE JAW! JAKE NOW TURNS AROUND AND TAKES HIKARI DOWN WITH A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN, AND I THINK HE MAY HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A BOSTON CRAB OR SOMETHING SIMILAR, BUT HIKARI QUICKLY FREES ONE OF HER LEGS AND KICKS JAKE AWAY!
James Peters: Hikari Kanno quickly gets back up to her feet, AND NOW SHE’S THE ONE THAT GETS JAKE WITH THE DOUBLE LEG TAKE DOWN AS BOTH ELITISTS CHARGED AT EACH OTHER! HIKARI KANNO LOOKS FOR A CROSSFACE AS SHE GRABS JAKE’S ARM, BUT JAKE IS QUICK ENOUGH TO CRAWL OVER AND GRAB ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE! Jake begins to wrap himself around the bottom rope to make sure Hikari can’t pull him off of it, and that forces Hikari to let go of the submission before it could even be fully locked in! WAIT, HIKARI KANNO HITS JAKE WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE AS SOON AS SHE GETS BACK UP!
Rich Russillo: Hikari grabs Jake once more, and I think she’s attempting the Kanno Super Buster once again, but Jake is fighting out of it! Jake managed to land a huge punch to Hikari’s midsection that caused her to back off of him, and now Jake is looking to capitalize as he kicks her in the midsection, BEFORE LIFTING HIKARI UP AND- WAIT NO! JAKE WAS LIFTING HIKARI UP FOR A POWERBOMB IT LOOKED LIKE, BUT HIKARI QUICKLY SLIPPED OUT OF JAKE’S GRASP! SPINNING BACKFIST BY HIKARI, WHO NOW RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE TAKING JAKE OUT WITH A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE!
Persephone: I don’t know how Ms. Extreme is still here. If I were her I would’ve left already, because this match has been boring as hell.
James Peters: Hikari Kanno gets back up, and she’s telling Jake to get back up to his feet! Jake is pulling himself in the corner, and he doesn’t look too good right now. He’s definitely in a lot of trouble, and this definitely won’t help his case! HIKARI KANNO CHARGES IN, BEFORE GOING FOR A HUGE JUMPING KNEE!
Rich Russillo: AND IT DOESN’T CONNECT!!! JAKE MANAGED TO JUST BARELY MOVE OUT OF THE WAY, AND HIKARI KANNO CRASHED KNEE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! JAKE IMMEDIATELY TAKES ADVANTAGE AS HE LIFTS HIKARI INTO AN ELECTRIC CHAIR BEFORE BRINGING HER TO THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND NOW THERE’S A HUGE ELECTRIC CHAIR DRIVER BY JAKE!! THIS ISN’T A MOVE YOU’D USUALLY SEE BY JAKE, BUT IT MIGHT BE ENOUGH TO GET THE JOB DONE! JAKE NOW HOOKING THE LEGS!!
Rich Russillo: HIKARI KANNO MANAGES TO KICK OUT BEFORE THREE!!! THIS MATCH ISN’T OVER YET, IT’S NOT OVER!
Persephone: Oh my God, WE GET IT! Stop telling us it’s not over, especially when it could’ve been over like fifteen minutes ago!
James Peters: Jake slowly pulls Hikari up by her hair, AND I THINK JAKE WAS ABOUT TO TRY AND SLAP HIKARI IN THE FACE, BUT HIKARI DUCKED UNDER IT BEFORE HITTING JAKE WITH ANOTHER BRIGHTSTAR!! JAKE TRIED TO DISRESPECT HIKARI AND IT DIDN’T PAY OFF WHATSOEVER!! Luckily for Jake, Hikari doesn’t have it in her to go for the cover right now! She was just dropped with that electric chair driver, and I think the BRIGHTSTAR may have come out of desperation!
Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno is slowly pulling herself back up, and she’s not out of this match just yet, but there was no way she’d be able to immediately get back into this match after the big move Jake delivered! Jake is slowly getting back up thanks to the time Hikari spent recovering, AND HIKARI CHARGES IN BEFORE GOING FOR A SHINING WIZARD TO THE SIDE OF JAKE’S HEAD! THE SHINING WIZARD CONNECTS, AND THIS TIME SHE’S ABLE TO FLIP JAKE ONTO HIS BACK AND GO FOR THE COVER! IS THAT IT FOR JAKE!?!?
Persephone: Oh my GOD, JUST STOP KICKING OUT ALREADY! Why do these idiots love to stretch these matches out so much? WE DON’T NEED HOUR LONG MATCHES!
James Peters: Hikari Kanno gets back up before pulling Jake back up while getting him in a front facelock, AND THERE’S AN ELBOW TO THE BACK OF JAKE’S NECK! AND ANOTHER ONE! HIKARI IS REPEATEDLY HITTING JAKE WITH ELBOWS TO THE BACK OF THE NECK, AND SHE FOLLOWS IT UP BY HITTING JAKE WITH A NECKBREAKER! Hikari doesn’t stop there though, SHE PULLS JAKE BACK UP, AND I THINK SHE’S ABOUT TO GO FOR A HUGE SUPLEX-
Rich Russillo: JAKE PULLS HIM DOWN, AND HE PUNCHES HIKARI IN THE MIDSECTION BEFORE HITTING HER WITH A FOREARM! JAKE NOW PUSHING HIKARI AWAY, AND HE CONNECTS WITH A HUGE SUPERKICK! Jake stumbles down into the ropes, and he may be needed to hang onto the ropes in order to remain on his feet, but Hikari pretty much had her head taken off with that superkick! Jake looked like he was struggling just now but once again he managed to find his way back into this one! You have to give Jake credit for his performance tonight.
Persephone: Or what? What is Jake gonna do? He’s awful, Rich.
James Peters: Jake is pulling himself back into this match, and now he pulls Hikari Kanno back up to her feet- AND HIKARI HITS JAKE WITH A HUGE FOREARM! NOW JAKE HITS HIKARI WITH A FOREARM! HIKARI NOW WITH A SPINNING KICK TO THE MIDSECTION BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES, BUT JAKE CONNECTS WITH A BICYCLE KICK! JAKE LIFTS HIKARI UP FOR A BRAINBUSTER BUT HIKARI QUICKLY SLIPS OUT OF IT, AND NOW SHE ATTEMPTS TO CONNECT WITH A DRAGON SUPLEX, BUT JAKE FREES HIS ARM BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A BACK ELBOW!
Rich Russillo: Hikari Kanno stumbles back a bit, and now Jake grabs him from behind! JAKE SETS UP FOR THE STARMAKER!!
(Suddenly, Jake stops right before delivering his finishing move, and a smile grows on his face.)
Jake Smith: (off-mic) HEY RAVEN!!!
(The crowd begins to boo.)
Jake Smith: (off-mic) I HOPE YOU’RE WATCHING! THIS IS WHAT’S COMING AT BLOODSPOR-
James Peters: WAIT!!! HIKARI JUST RAKED THE EYES!!! JAKE WAS ABOUT TO PUT HIKARI KANNO AWAY WITH THE STARMAKER, AND HIKARI RAKED THE EYES!
Rich Russillo: ALLELUIA!!!! HIKARI KANNO DELIVERS THE NORTHERN LIGHTS BOMB, AND SHE GOES FOR THE COVER IN FRONT OF MS. EXTREME!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner….. HHIIIIIIKKAAARRRIIIIII KKAAAANNNOOOOOOO!!!!!!
James Peters: What a match! Hikari Kanno and Jake Smith both delivered in that match, but in the end Jake tried to show off and that cost him massively!
Persephone: :mjlol: What an idiot.
Rich Russillo: Jake had a great performance tonight, but in the end he got ahead of himself! He pretty much cost himself the match, but I don’t think he has anything to be ashamed of.
James Peters: Me neither. Jake did great, but in the end this was Hikari Kanno’s win, as she sends a message to the Universal Women’s Champ-
(‘Dream In Drive’ hits, and the crowd boos with the exception of IDOL-GUN’s simps. Hikari rolls off of Jake, but as soon as she lays her eyes on Ms. Extreme, she has her music stopped and she demands a microphone from the timekeepers area, which surprises the fans. As soon as Hikari is handed a microphone, she stares directly at Ms. Extreme.)
Hikari Kanno: Shave my head bald? Is that what you said you were gonna do?
(Ms. Extreme just nods, with a slight hint of a grin showing up on her face.)
Hikari Kanno: Well that’s a bunch of bullshit, but I’m feeling generous, so if you want to really embarrass yourself then I’ll give you the perfect opportunity to. Why don’t we make this a Championship versus Hair match? The winner gets the title, and the right to shave the losers head bald.
(The crowd actually begins to cheer loudly after Hikari’s words, and they begin cheering even louder as Ms. Extreme nods in agreement.)
Ms. Extreme: (off-mic) I accept.
Hikari Kanno: Good. I hope you’re ready to lose your Championship *and* your hair.
(Hikari drops her microphone, and once again ‘Dream In Drive’ plays, causing a mixed reaction from the crowd, with the cheers mainly being directed towards the added stipulation to the match.)
Persephone: Someone’s gonna go bald at the end of their match too? This might actually be fun :mjlol:.
Rich Russillo: These two really have a lot of stakes here. Bloodsport can’t come soon enough!
(Hikari slowly gets back to her feet. and Ms. Extreme can be seen mocking Hikari, making a scissor cutting motion with her fingers. Hikari and Ms. Extreme share a few more words which aren’t picked up by the camera, until finally the scene begins to fade.)
(Promotional ad for Ms. Extreme versus Hikari Kanno for the Universal Women’s Championship in a Championship versus Hair Scaffold Match, all at Bloodsport.)
(As Voltage fades back to ringside, the fans cheer as loud as they can as the Voltage commissioner Captain Charisma is seen inside of the ring. What’s next to him makes the cheering even louder, as next to him is the Bloodsport wheel of death, which has already been used to reveal various match stipulations for the free-per-view. Captain Charisma has a microphone in his hand and a smile on his face as he sees the excited fans in attendance, and soon begins to speak as he turns his attention towards the wheel.)
Captain Charisma: Honestly, I don’t think this wheel needs any more introduction after these past few weeks. We’ve already seen this wheel multiple times in the past few years, and this year things are more exciting than ever! We’re getting closer and closer to Bloodsport and already we’ve seen some awesome stipulations chosen. The Scaffold Match and the Fans Bring the Weapons match are returning this year, and we’ve also seen a debuting stipulation in the form of the Piranha Deathmatch!
(The crowd keeps cheering as Captain Charisma continues.)
Captain Charisma: We’ve already learned the stipulation for one of the World Championship matches in the form of the Universal Women’s Championship. Now it’s time for us to learn the stipulation for the EAW Championship! Without any further adieu, introducing first… please welcome the EAW Champion, Drake King.
(The crowd immediately starts booing as soon as they hear Drake’s name, and after a few moments ‘Cold War’ by Hans Zimmer hits, causing the booing to grow even louder. Drake King walks out dragging the EAW Championship, and he has a microphone in his hand, which just annoys the crowd even more as they notice. Drake doesn’t look as annoyed as usual, and Captain Charisma can clearly tell what he’s in for as he waits for Drake to enter the ring.)
James Peters: Here comes the EAW Champion, and he really doesn’t look too happy right now.
Persephone: When are these guys ever happy? Granted I probably wouldn’t ever be happy either if I was as bland or boring as New Eden, but still.
Rich Russillo: Drake has his eyes on the Bloodsport wheel, and I think that may be the reason he’s so upset :lupe:.
(Drake enters the ring, and he looks at the Bloodsport wheel, before looking at Captain Charisma with a look of disgust.)
Captain Charisma: Drake-
Drake King: No no no, stop right there. I know you’ve lost your mind, but this is crazy even for you. Do you really think this is okay? Are you even listening to yourself right now? Piranha Deathmatches? Scaffold Matches? Matches where the fans can just show up with whatever dangerous items they want? You’re putting your roster’s lives on the line and making it into some kind of game, and for some reason everyone around here is just okay with that! This Championship shouldn’t have to be defended in the first place, and not only are you forcing me to defend it, but you’re forcing me to defend it under one of these unnecessary stipulations. Every single year we’re forced to watch you make this all some kind of joke, do you even realize what you’re doing here?
Captain Charisma: I do. Some people just choose not to bitch about it the same way you do about basically everything.
Drake King: :wtf: And because they’re not complaining this is just okay?
Captain Charisma: Drake, Voltage has some of the best wrestlers on the planet on the roster. Everyone here has been through some of the most life threatening matches possible and that includes you, but you’re still standing here with the EAW Championship, aren’t you? People like Ms. Extreme have already competed at Bloodsport in the past, and right now she’s the Universal Women’s Champion. None of these people need your concern and I don’t think they want your concern either. Besides, *they* don’t look too worried, do they?
(Captain Charisma points to the crowd, and the fans begin to cheer once again, which just annoys Drake even more.)
Drake King: Of course they don’t see a problem with it! Of course they don’t see a problem with you forcing your roster to compete in matches that literally have the word “death” in the name! They’re not the ones actually competing, and the ones who ARE competing are only doing it because they either want some Championship or other accolade or they want to settle some stupid feud that only ever started because these people can’t keep their egos in check. We shouldn’t have to be forced to fight under these conditions, and you definitely shouldn’t be trying to make light of stipulations like this with some stupid wheel knowing just how dangerous these matches are. You’re supposed to be in charge of this brand. You’re the one responsible for what happens around here, and what are you doing with that power? The same thing you were always doing. Ruining-
(Finally, ‘High All The Time’ by 50 Cent hits, and Captain Charisma pretty much sighs in relief, clearly fed up after having to listen to Drake complain. The crowd explodes seeing Justin Windgate walk out, and he’s seen smoking while doing so, seemingly high already.)
James Peters: :blessed: Justin Windgate is here! As we all know Drake King will be defending the EAW Championship against Justin at Bloodsport, and we’re supposed to be finding out the stipulation for the match-
Persephone: But Drake likes to bitch. They really need to just hurry up and spin the wheel now. There’s no reason why I should still be here.
(As Justin Windgate makes his way closer to the ring and eventually inside of the ring, Drake begins to realize that Justin is high. Once he does realize it he just shakes his head in disappointment for beginning to speak.)
Drake King: You just can’t help yourself, can you? I’m not even surprised, because this is all you’re good for. All you ever do is poison yourself, and I don’t know how I ever could’ve expected you to gain some self respect when you’re encouraged by everyone around you. The entire arena just now cheered you for making a fool out of yourself and failing to resist the urge to do this. I don’t know what Captain Charisma was doing giving this match to you. Is this really who everyone wants to represent this place? Is this who everyone wants holding one of their dumb titles that everyone values way too much? Of all the people on the roster, they want the drug addict-
(The crowd explodes once more as Justin Windgate hits Drake in the face, sending the EAW Champion to the mat. Justin takes the joint out of his mouth, and he puts it out on Drake’s chest, causing the crowd to continue to cheer. Finally, Justin picks up the microphone that Drake dropped, looking at Captain Charisma.)
Justin Windgate: :mjlol: I really don’t know how you lasted an entire season with this guy. I heard him speak for only a few minutes and I’ve already had enough of his voice.
Captain Charisma: :wow:
(Justin turns his attention towards the Bloodsport wheel, before looking back at the commissioner.)
Justin Windgate: Mind if I do the honors?
Captain Charisma: :mjgrin: Go right ahead. Not like Drake was ever gonna do it.
(With a grin on his face, Justin puts his foot on Drake’s chest to keep him down before finally spinning the wheel. The wheel spins for a little while as both Justin Windgate and the fans wait in anticipation.)
Rich Russillo: :lupe: What’s it gonna be?
Persephone: It better be something good. The only way anyone could justify Drake King versus Justin Windgate being a World Championship match is with it ending in an actual murder.
(The wheel finally begins to slow down before finally landing on a stipulation, and once it lands both Elitists are surprised.)
Justin Windgate: :oh: Chainsaw Deathmatch!
James Peters: :krabs:
Rich Russillo: :krabs:
(The crowd explodes hearing the stipulation, which isn’t very surprising since it’s a Voltage crowd. Drake pushes Justin’s foot off of him before backing up, and he’s completely beside himself.)
Drake King: (off-mic) You’ve got to be freaking kidding me. Is this real?
Captain Charisma: Yep!
Justin Windgate: Looks like it :notbad:.
Drake King: (off-mic) No no no no no, this has to be some sort of joke!
Justin Windgate: Nope. I don’t think it’s a joke. I think this is the real stipulation.
Captain Charisma: It is! At Bloodsport, Drake King will be defending his EAW Championship against Justin Windgate in a Chainsaw Deathmatch :drakelike:!
Justin Windgate: Sounds good to me.
Drake King: No, you can’t be serious! There’s no way we’re actually fighting in a-
James Peters: I THINK JUSTIN WINDGATE HAS FINALLY HEARD ENOUGH! JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST KICKED DRAKE IN THE FACE, AND NOW HE’S BEGINNING TO STOMP AWAY AT THE EAW CHAMPION! I’m still in disbelief over that stipulation, but there’s no time to think about that right now!
Rich Russillo: WAIT, DRAKE MANAGED TO GRAB JUSTIN BY THE LEGS, AND HE TAKES HIM DOWN TO THE MAT BEFORE BEGINNING TO PUNCH AWAY AT HIS BLOODSPORT CHALLENGER! Captain Charisma is exiting the ring as he realizes things have erupted into a huge brawl, and it looks like his work here is done! We now have our Bloodsport stipulation, but I guess these two couldn’t end the night without getting their hands on each other! JUSTIN WINDGATE PUSHES DRAKE OFF OF HIM, AND BOTH MEN GET BACK UP TO THEIR FEET BEFORE CHARGING AT EACH OTHER!
James Peters: Both men are throwing lefts and rights, and I didn’t expect things to escalate so quickly! WAIT, JUSTIN WINDGATE SENDS BOTH HIMSELF AND DRAKE KING OUT OF THE RING WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE, BUT BOTH MEN MANAGED TO JUST BARELY LAND ON THEIR FEET, ALLOWING DRAKE TO SEND JUSTIN WINDGATE INTO THE RING APRON! Justin Windgate is still on his feet, BUT DRAKE KING LOOKS TO SEND JUSTIN INTO THE BARRICADE- JUST FOR JUSTIN TO TURN IT AROUND AND SEND DRAKE CRASHING INTO IT INSTEAD!
Persephone: Alright, I’m happy with the match stipulation but they can definitely wrap this shit up now.
Rich Russillo: Justin Windgate goes up to Drake King, BUT DRAKE KNEES JUSTIN IN THE MIDSECTION, CAUSING JUSTIN TO STUMBLE BACK- WAIT! JUSTIN JUST GRABBED ONE OF THE FANS’ BEERS, AND HE JUST THREW IT RIGHT INTO THE EAW CHAMPION’S FACE! Drake’s been temporarily blinded by the beer, AND JUSTIN WINDGATE GRABS DRAKE BEFORE SENDING HIM CRASHING INTO THE STEEL STEPS!! The crowd definitely seemed to love that one, Drake’s been effectively taken out by Justin Windgate!
James Peters: I don’t think he’s done though :lupe:!
(The camera shows Justin Windgate digging under the ring for something as Drake slowly begins to recover. Once Justin pulls the item he was looking for out of the ring, the cheers manage to get even louder than before.)
James Peters: JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST PULLED OUT A CHAINSAW!!! JUSTIN WINDGATE JUST PULLED A CHAINSAW OUT OF THE RING!
Persephone: :blessed: JUST KILL DRAKE NOW!!!
Rich Russillo: Justin is approaching Drake with the chainsaw, and Drake is petrified! Drake can’t believe what he’s seeing!
Drake King: (off-mic) :whoa:!!!
(Drake quickly begins backing up the ramp, not wanting to get involved with Justin Windgate and his chainsaw whatsoever. Justin Windgate stands at the end of the ramp with a grin on his face as he watches Drake leave, and the crowd cheers him on as he fires up the chainsaw.)
Justin Windgate: (off-mic) :mjlol2:
James Peters: :wow: What a sight! Drake was able to avoid it tonight, but at Bloodsport this is exactly what he has in store as he and Justin Windgate face off in a Chainsaw Deathmatch! I can’t even believe I’m saying those words!
Rich Russillo: Bloodsport is going to be insane, but clearly Justin Windgate is prepared! Could we be seeing a new EAW Champion when the time comes!?
Persephone: Doesn’t matter to me. They’re gonna die either way :drakelike:.
James Peters: This has been one insane Voltage and this is some big news to end the night! That’s all we have for Voltage, but I’m getting more and more excited for Bloodsport! As always I’m James Peters and with me is Rich Russillo and Persephone Tsitsipas. We’ll see you all next week!
(‘High All The Time’ begins playing once again as Justin Windgate waves the chainsaw around. Drake King has already disappeared, and the fans continue to cheer Justin Windgate on as Voltage begins to fade to black for the final time.)
