(The EAW logo appears on the screen…)
(Footage of a busy city is shown. The lights of the town are bright as signs and street lights illuminate in the dark. Inside the buildings are people as they sit in their homes comfortably watching television. The camera continues to go around the city, stopping at the powerlines which hold the source of all this light.)
“For decades, there has been one blessing to all man…That blessing is electricity. Some have managed to harness the power of this invention, for the better and the worst. Some have suffered and some have prospered with the use of this breakthrough in human history. Tonight, the same will apply to the most talented individuals that have ever stepped into a squared circle.”
(We head back into the people’s homes as the program they’re watching is interrupted. Footage of both a suit clad Zack Crash and Carlos Rosso are shown as their past rants are spliced in which draw the ire of the crowd and their respective opponents, Eclipse Diemos and Nasir Capitani.)
“These Kings and queens demand for power and will do everything that they can to possess it.”
(The issues between the OG Vixens and The Sirens are shown followed up by highlights of Nathan Fiora’s Hardcore Championship reign along with his rivalry with Drastik.)
“Some Castles will be built while others will collapse…..”
(Voin stands in the middle of the ring with Y2Impact and Matt Miles.)
“Mortals shall test their luck against the most powerful of gods….”
(The saga between Carson Ramsay and Kenny Drake ends up in the mix: Kenny Drake uses Carson Ramsay’s own blood to sign his name onto the contract and Carson retaliates the following week by burning him with a cigarette.)
“There will shocks and thrills, but only one will reign supreme. Who will manage do this in the night where electricity is supreme?”
(Faces appear on the screen at random including the likes of Mike Showman, Jon McAdams, Maero, Aria Jaxon, Stephanie Matsuda, J.D. Damon, Madison Kaline, Heart Break Gal, Ahren Fournie, Sheridan Muller and many more.)
“Who will be the blessed and who will be the cursed? This night will be electric; there is no other one like it. It is time to feel…a new element of pain.”
Narrator: And now….EAW Voltage and Battlefield 1 Presents……..SHOCK VALUE!!!!!
(“Crossfire” by Stephen plays as blue fireworks shoot up from the stage, exciting the sold out crowd in attendance. The camera does a pan around the arena before settling in on WWEFan and Kawajai who are dressed up specially for the event.)
WWEFan: HELLO EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SHOCK VALUE, LIVE FROM THE CHESAPEAKE ENERGY ARENA IN OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA! 14, 708 FANS ARE IN AN ATTENDANCE TO WITNESS THIS VOLTAGE EXCLUSIVE EVENT, WHICH I MUST SAY, HAS ALL OF THE MAKINGS TO BE A CLASSIC!
Kawajai: IN-FREAKING-DEED! It is an honor to be here with you calling the action tonight alongside you Fan! We are bringing a new element of pain tonight! There are two big High Voltage matches scheduled for tonight: Eclipse Diemos vs Zack Crash and Voin defending his EAW Championship against Matt Miles and Y2Impact, Carlos Rosso returns to in ring competition against Nasir Capitani in a Blackout Match, and Drastik returns from an even longer hiatus to face defending Hardcore Champion, Nathan Fiora!
WWEFan: Don’t forget about Kenny Drake and Carson Ramsay’s Electric Death Match, or the Top Prospect Scramble match! Hell, we’re not alone in this endeavor either, SG1 and Starr Stan will join us for a special presentation of Empire at this event! The very first Control in The Vault Match + a chaotic five on five awaits us from the Vixens!
Kawajai: Before we get to all of that we have Marco Fedor vs Keelan Cetinich, a match I just can not wait for any longer! Ring Announcer, take it!
Ring Announcer: The following contest is a Shock Collar I Quit Match! The only way to win this match is by punishing your opponent to the point of verbal submission!
(“Rise Up” by Cenacle plays as Marco Fedor comes out, high fiving several people in the audience. He makes his way to ringside and sees his family in the front row as he comes toward them, having a pre-match pep talk before heading into the ring.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Lexington, Kentucky! Weighing in at 185 pounds! MARRRCOOOOOOO FEEDDDDOOOORRRRRRRR!!
WWEFan: Marco Fedor is showing up in good spirits to start us off here at Shock Value! This is a big match for him as this is the first time he’ll be competing one on one at a major event. His family is in attendance for support though I feel like they’re happy mood will wear off soon. This match won’t be pretty. Marco will have to go against his own mentor Keelan Cetinich to prove himself to him! I know he didn’t want it to come to this but all of the same he better drop that smile and focus on the task at hand! Here comes Keelan!
(“Oblivion” by 30 Seconds to Mars plays as Keelan Cetinich comes out, shaking his head at Marco’s happy go lucky attitude, pointing at him and shouting threats.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Brisbane, Australia, now residing in Los Angeles, California! Weighing in at 227 pounds! He is “The Hannibal Lecter of Hardcore”…..KEEEELAAAANNN CETINICHHHHH!!!!
Kawajai: Keelan does not like the way Marco’s carrying himself in the slightest! He’s really looking to teach him a lesson tonight! Keelan has a lot of respect for Marco but he believes that he can’t let Marco continue to act like this! He wants to force Marco into having a killer instinct by hardening him in this match! He’s made some requests to management and this match has been altered a bit as now they will be tied by their shock collars but instead of the collars only activating during submissions, they will react upon each move delivered to a competitor. This truly will be a grueling match as every move made matters now!
(The two have their collars placed around their neck and get in their respective corners as the referee signals for the bell to ring.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: The bell rings and WOAH! Marco Fedor just yanked at the chain that’s attached to shock collars as Keelan Cetinich is pulled half way across the ring into a running knee! Keelan falls hard against the canvas, activating his shock collar! You can see Keelan’s body convulse from that sudden jolt! Wow, who would have thought that Marco would be the first to strike!? He’s definitely looking to show that killer instinct Keelan was asking of him! Keelan is learning about the old phrase “be careful what you wish for” right now. He rolls out of the ring to regain his senses but with the two of them being attached at the neck he can’t exactly get too far!
Kawajai: Marco Fedor pulls back on the chain and that sudden jerk backs Keelan up against the ring apron. He does not remain resting up against that for long though, there goes Marco to catch him with a baseball slide! Right into the barricade Keelan goes and his collar activates with a shock! Marco observes the outside and backs away for as far as that chain can allow him him! He gathers up a full head of steam! SUICIDE DIVE! Marco shoots so far he nearly went into the audience! Keelan sinks down in a heap but Marco wastes no time as he brings Keelan back up to his feet and then rolls him into the ring!
WWEFan: Interesting, Marco decides to not join him in the ring. He’s instead running up the steel steps and ascending up to the top rope! He’s perched up high, watching Keelan Cetinich rise to his feet! Listen to him yell at Keelan Cetinich to turn around! And turn around he does, right into a MISSILE DROPKICK! The shock collar goes wild on Keelan as he takes his biggest hit yet! Marco experiences a shock as well but he sucks it up, shooting up to his feet with a look of pride on his face! The crowd is on their feet, Marco’s own mother is can’t believe it, she’s ecstatic right now, clapping with glee at her kid! Marco has the people in the palm of his hand, what has gotten into him?
Kawajai: He has a huge amount of motivation heading into this match! He’s up against a veteran, his own mentor! He has to stay on Keelan and he knows it! The adrenaline kicks in when your back is against the wall! It is high energy right now as he paces himself in the corner opposite of his recovering opponent! Marco raises his fist to capture the excitement of the crowd and charges at Keelan soon after! FOREARM SHOT IN THE CORNER! WAIT! NO! Keelan sidesteps the blow and catches Marco in his arms! EXPLODER SUPLEX INTO THE CORNER! MARCO’S BODY FOLDS UP IN PAIN! HE MUST HAVE HAD A HELL OF A SHOCK TO GO WITH THAT ALREADY DEVASTATING MOVE!
WWEFan: And just like that Keelan is now in control. He has Marco by the hand, pulling him in for a short arm clothesline! Marco goes down like a ton of bricks but Keelan maintains a hold of that grip…….and he delivers an STO! Both men are currently on the ground, Keelan standing over Marco! Keelan uses one hand to force Marco to stay on the mat, he is now wrapping the chain of their shock collars around Marco’s head while he is trying to restrain him! He is using the chain to SQUEEZE Marco’s head! Those steel chain links are pressed up against his skin, currently crushing his skull! Marco is shouting in pain! Eugh, his head is as red as a tomato right now! The referee is checking up on him to see if he’ll quit but Marco just waves him off!
Kawajai: Keelan is a bit frustrated by that, while he still has Marco at his mercy he grabs his head and bangs it over and over into the canvas. That head is still wrapped in chain! Marco is beginning to become bloody in the mouth! OH! And if that is not bad enough, all of this action is getting his shock collar going! Marco is in a bad way; the referee approaches Marco!
Referee: Marco. Marco! Do you quit?
Marco: No! Not a chance!
WWEFan: Check out that little laugh from Keelan Cetinich after Marco’s response! It’s almost as if he has no other way to react to the display of will by his partner Maco tonight! He chooses to finally unwrap the chain from Marco’s face and is now kicking him around! Keelan has Maco set up, looking to go for a powerbomb, but Marco sneaks right past his guard! He’s now behind Keelan and is hooking onto his legs! He’s going for a roll up from the look of it but there are no pins allowed in this match up!
Kawajai: No, no, no, Fan! Don’t you see? The roll up simply provided a smooth transition for him to wrestle Keelan Cetinich onto his stomach and into a crossface! CROSSFACE BEING FULLY APPLIED! Marco has the submission locked in, he’s using Keelan’s own move against him! THE COLLAR ACTIVATES FOR THE SUBMISSION! I can’t tell if Keelan’s eyes are bulging out in pain or in shock! He’s in a panic as he moves his hand around, pondering what to do with it! Rope breaks or tap out submissions won’t matter in this environment nevertheless! The referee leans in to ask for verbal surrender and Keelan merely uses his free hand to flip our official off! Keelan is fidgeting around but it’s not of much use! This is where Marco’s amateur wrestling skills come into play, wrestling is all about dominance, Marco knows how to keep control and keep his opponent downed! Marco shows no sign of letting go of that crossface while Keelan shows no sign of being able to break it! We may see Keelan quitting here! Marco is rearing back that crossface, making every second in the hold that more excruciating!
WWEFan: Keelan Cetinich is tapping out but like you said, it does not matter! Then again, hitting that mat may be the only thing taking his mind off of verbally submitting! Marco now is positioning himself in a way where he can rear back even farther!His feet are practically pushing off of the mat now while his back is hovering! Marco is showing some great prowess right now, this looks PAINFUL! Keelan is picking at the fingers of Marco but Marco keeps those hands tight! Keelan goes for a new plan! He punches the knee of Marco, wanting to break apart the submission! Marco is not breaking it though! Man, look at how determined he is, he’s putting his all into maintaining that crossface!
Kawajai: Keelan will not be denied! He grabs Marco by the legs and LIFTS him up with him! Keelan has Marco up in the air, that crossface is broken now! Keelan Cetinich backs away with Marco…..and then pops him up into the air! Marco lands on his shoulders and Keelan runs as fast as he can! BUCKLE BOMB! Marco’s body bounces off of the turnbuckle and Keelan wishes to go for a follow up! THE SLING BLADE! Marco has been planted and now has to endure a brutal shock!
WWEFan: Keelan again cuts Marco off while he has momentum! Keelan has Marco down but he is not done. He helps Marco back up to his feet….just knock him back down with a well placed superkick, catching him clean on the chin! Spit goes flying and Marco falls into the ropes, saving himself from a fall but rebounding him off of of them as well! Marco ends up walking… RIGHT INTO AN OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY BY KEELAN! MARCO GOT TOSSED ACROSS THE RING! Marco just took another horrible shock thanks to that but he barely even gets any time to come down from it before he goes flying again with a fall away slam! Keelan is punishing Marco right, going for whatever big moves he can to produce the most powerful shock. Marco is crawling, feeling around at the floor right now. He’s been badly shocked so many times that I would not be surprised if his vision was a bit blurred.
Kawajai: I think it is. Marco happens upon the ropes and is trying to use them to pick himself back up but Keelan stops him, pushing his head down and forcing him up to the middle rope. He takes his leg and drapes it over Marco’s neck, pressing Marco’s throat up against the ropes! Marco is being choked out while having to stare across from the people at front row — the same row that his mother is in in! Through his defiance you can still see a look of confliction! Imagine being in her shoes, having to watch your son get battered! God damn, this must have been intentional by Keelan, he’s smiling! These are some admittedly brilliant mind games!
Keelan Cetinich: (without a microphone) Come on, look at her face, Marco!…Look at her! You can stop this, ya know! Say it! Say you quit!
WWEFan: Marco gets approached by the referee again while getting choked out and STILL having to look at her dead in the face! He is questioned by the ref….and he shakes his head no! Marco refuses to quit! It must have taken a lot both physically and emotionally to do that! Having gone through that, Keelan brings Marco to his feet and then goes to town on him with chops! Marco is hunched over, groggy from all of this abuse. Keelan does not allow him a breather, hitting him with a snap suplex as a follow up! Marco may have went unconscious from that if he didn’t get awoken by his shock collar!
Kawajai: Marco is now down in the center of the ring and Keelan sees a golden opportunity here! He goes between the ropes and stands up on the apron, climbing all of the way up to the top rope! Ohhh…..Keelan’ going for the Death Drop, that back senton of his! OH SHIT! MARCO JUST PULLED AT THE CHAIN FROM DOWN BELOW! KEELAN SLIPS UP ON THE TOP ROPE AND THE BACK OF HIS HEAD HITS THE STEEL PART OF THE TURNBUCKLE ON THE WAY DOWN! THE BACK OF KEELAN’S HEAD HAS BEEN SPLIT OPEN! Keelan puts his hand over his head as blood is pouring from him right now. He feels it gushing out as it is staining his blond hair to red! Keelan seems to have momentarily passed out as he lays on his back!
WWEFan: Keelan is in a pool of blood right now. He wakes up as quick as he can and is doing his best to sit up, but Marco is there waiting for him! ROUND HOUSE KICK! GOD! THAT CRACKING SOUND AS MARCO’S LEG HIT KEELAN’S FACE WAS NASTY! Marco now stands up in the corner. He spits up blood into the air and lets out a battle cry! The crowd is deep into their chants of “Marco! This is his moment! He scales to the top for the second time in this match and unlike Keelan he connects! DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! Keelan holds his ribs and shakes from yet another shock! The referee is quick to get involved, asking if he’ll quit!
Keelan Cetinich: Fuck. OFF!
Kawajai: Now Marco is the one laughing! It seems we are having a role reversal right now with Marco outshining Keelan! Marco has manned up a lot tonight! He is stalking Keelan, waiting for him to get up! He takes his knee pad and pulls it down, it looks like he’s aiming for a blunt shot this time! Marco watches Keelan get up and charges! KNEEE — NO! KEELAN JUST TOOK THE CHAIN OF THEIR SHOCK COLLARS AND BASHED IT INTO THE UNPROTECTED KNEE OF MARCO! MARCO’S KNEECAP HAS JUST BEEN BUSTED AS HE FALLS OVER! HE’S ON ONE LEG NOW! KILLER-KO! KEELAN SPIKES HIM WITH THE CUTTER! WITH MARCO DOWN KEELAN THEN LOCKS IN THE DEATH VICE! KEELAN HAS THE LOCOPLATA LOCKED IN AND IS SQUEEZING THE LIFE OUT OF MARCO! AS HE HAS HIM STUCK IN THE SUBMISSION HE SHAKES HIM ABOUT, SLAMMING HIM INTO THE MAT AT THE SAME TIME AS THE SHOCK COLLAR IS ACTING UP! MARCO FEDOR IS IN A WORLD OF HURT RIGHT NOW!
WWEFan: MARCO IS IN ALL KINDS OF PAIN BUT HE DOES NOT WANT TO GIVE UP, HE CAN NOT AFFORD TO IN HIS MIND! OH MY GOD! KEELAN BLASTS HIM WITH A BRUTAL ELBOW SHOT AS IT CATCHES HIM ABOVE THE BROW AND HE GETS BUSTED OPEN THERE INSTANTLY! AGAIN AND AGAIN WITH THOSE ELBOW SHOTS WHILE IN THAT SUBMISSION! THE REFEREE IS ASKING IF HE’LL QUIT BUT HE JUST REMAINS STRAIGHT FACED, TAKING THE PAIN! MARCO IS ENDURING SHOCKS, ELBOWS, BLOOD LOSS, CHOKING, HE MAY JUST LET HIMSELF DIE BEFORE HE QUITS!
Kawajai That seems to be a worry for the people in the crowd though, there is a hush right now as they uncomfortably watch! Keelan is STILL going! Marco is remaining stern on his stance of not quitting but then he looks out at the people, including his family in attendance! OH! ANOTHER ELBOW SHOT TO INTERRUPT HIM! Marco may need to start thinking about his safety at this point as much as it would pain him to!
Referee: Marco! Do you quit!
WWEFan: ANOTHER SHOT! Marco isn’t even answering back at this point! He’s just taking it without any reaction! Keelan is even looking concerned, this guy is showing superhuman endurance! The fans are cringing with each shot here, Marco is a bloody mess while stuck in that Death Vice! Come on Marco, you have a whole career ahead of you! Live to fight another day here!
Referee: MARCO! I need an answer! Do you quit!?
Marco: Augghh…..(breathes heavily) I….I……I quit.
WWEFan: Thank God, Marco has just quit, the referee can now call for the bell as this bout is officially over.
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Oblivion” by 30 Seconds to Mars plays as Keelan Cetinich gets up and has his hand raised in victory.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner………KEELAN CETINICCCCHHHHHH!!!!
Kawajai: — And the first thing Keelan Cetinich does is drop down and check on the condition of Marco Fedor! He didn’t even have to think about it there! He offers Marco his hand and brings him up to his feet, raising his hand up high as the crowd cheers! After a performance like that Keelan HAS to give Marco his due!
WWEFan: Those two tore the house down! Win or lose, there is no denying Marco Fedor manned up tonight and came into his own. Keelan Cetinich and Marco’s relationship has just ascended teacher and student, these two now respect each other as MEN. They are truly equal partners now. What a way to kick things off here at Shock Value!
Keelan Cetinich: (without mic) I’ll be damned. You really are ready, kid. Welcome to the big leagues, officially.
(Keelan gives Marco the floor as “Marco” chants pick up once again, this time louder than ever. Marco smiles as we fade away from ringside.)
(Camera pans backstage where Drastik is sitting in his locker room with a variety of local talents from around the area)
Drastik: OK. So this is how you do it.
(All of the local talents intently look at Drastik)
(Drastik looks back at them)
Drastik: Now do it with me.
Local talents: SAIL!
(Drastik, appearing satisfied with their cheers, pats some of them on the back)
Drastik: Alright, now it’s on to the next one. This is among my my favorites.
(The local talents once again intently listen to Drastik’s chants)
Drastik: BEST. IN THE WORLD.
Drastik: BEST. IN THE WORLD!
WWEFan: What the hell is he doing…
Drastik: All right. Now join in.
Local talents: BEST. IN THE WORLD. BEST. IN THE WORLD. BEST. IN THE WORLD.
(Drastik and fellow local talents begin chanting “Best. In the world” in unison in his locker room as the camera pans back to ringside)
Kawajai: BEST. IN THE WORLD!
WWEFan: Pipe down! Not you too. I hope that guy never wins another match again.
(The camera cuts to ringside where the Empire commentary team has taken over. SG1 is shown wearing tight black yoga pants and a revealing top displaying excess sideboob. Starr is shown sitting next to her wearing a zoot suit with an American flag pin.)
SG1: Ladies and gentlemen this is the moment you have all by waiting for! I have returned to FPV!!!! All hail!
Starr: We could not be more excited to be here at Shock Value. We hope to deliver an experience like only Empire can provide!
SG1: Recently that ignorant bitch Cleopatra has been running Empire like complete shit. So tonight the Vixens get to fight for Control in the Vault! They have the chance to actually run Empire right for a change!
Starr: Let’s take a look at how this match came to be.
(The camera cuts a video package revealing Cleopatra snapping on Empire and trying to burn Erica Ford alive. Ken Stark then announces the first ever Control in the Vault match. The camera then cuts back to ringside.)
RA: The following contest is the first ever Control in the Vault match!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
RA: Nah that ain’t how this match works…
Crowd: TWO FALLS!!!
RA: No you dumbasses… The participants of this match will all be fitted with a special shock collar. When they are eliminated from the match it will trigger the collar and electrocute the living hell out of them! Also with each elimination the shock will be greater! People could die here folks!!!
Starr: Empire is not responsible for any fatalities. These Vixens signed away their rights to a safe working environment when they were forced to join our brand.
(“Deadlihood” by Sixx A.M. hits!!!)
(Purple lights shine around the entrance, moving around in random patterns as the beginning lyrics play, the fog machine filling the entrance…)
The sun is shining,
Though everything’s dying,
Your stars burned out for good,
Somewhere in Hollywood.
(As the guitar riff stars up, the purple lights flicker like strobe lights as Autumn walks out slowly from the back, coming to a stop at the top of the ramp as the fans begin to boo, showing their disdain. She smirks arrogantly and flings her arms out to the sides before descending down the ramp.)
Ring Announcer: From Los Angeles, California, weighing one hundred and twenty pounds!! Autumn Raven!!!
What the hell,
This ain’t no way to treat the living dead,
Is this something from a novel that you read,
It’s time to cut the cord and say goodbye,
Cos I’m the only thing that hasn’t happened yet,
And when it does I wished we’d never met,
I did the best I could.
(She walks around the ring, glaring at the fans at ringside, before she slides under the bottom rope and leaps to her feet, giving the crowd a smug smile.)
SG1: Oh god I just realized we actually have to sit through entrances for all ten Vixens.
Starr: Show some respect SG1. I’m sure it won’t actually take that long.
SG1: Autumn Raven everyone! YEAOOOOOOOOH!
(“Breakdown” by Lady of Rage hits!!!)
RA: From Raleigh, North Carolina… LAAAAAAAAA DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVAAAAAAAA!!!
Starr: Here she comes! The almost mythical presence of La Diva joining us here tonight. Can she pick up what may not only be her first ever FPV victory… but her first ever victory in general?
SG1: I swear she won a match once… Someone check the records….
La Diva: Autumn Raven be my tag team partner please in Control in the Vault battle royal?
(Autumn Raven looks uncomfortable as she turns away from La Diva who is entering the ring eating a bag of popcorn and carrying a microphone. La Diva gets a look on her face suggesting she doesn’t understand.)
La Diva: But be my partner in tag team tournament on Voltage show against Nostalgia and Luke Cage?
(The referee takes away La Diva’s microphone as she looks out at the crowd with a blank longing expression.)
Starr: I’ve seen that look before… La Diva means serious business here tonight…
(“Sounds of Silence” by Disturbed hits!!!)
RA: Introducing next… representing The Sisters of the Sanatorium… ALEXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXIS DIEMOS!!!! BROOOOOOOOOOODY SPARRRRRRRRRRRRKS!!!! AND MADISON KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALINE!!!!
(Maddie shoves past Alexis to walk in front of her on the way to the ring as the crowd boos. As she enters the ring Maddie scolds the ring announcer for not introducing her first.)
Starr: Maddie’s ego is out of control holy shit. She needs to check that privilege!
SG1: Maddie is the number one contender to the EAW Specialist’s Championship! She has earned her privilege!
La Diva: Amy Jayne would you face me in Steel Cage Match for Golden Dildo Championship at WMW show?
Starr: When did Amy Jayne get out here? And how did La Diva get another mic? Someone take that away from her!
SG1: BRODY SPARKS TAKING DOWN LA DIVA WITH A CLOTHESLINE OUT OF NOWHERE!!!!
Starr: This match is underway and we are still waiting on four more participants to join us!! The Sanatorium laying waste to the ring right now!!!
SG1: Maddie, Brody, and Alexis begin the attack on La Diva, Autumn Raven, and Amy Jayne!!! What a vicious beatdown! Brody Sparks with a huge sit down powerbomb on La Diva!!!
(“Let The Flames Begin” by Paramore hits!!!)
RA: Introducing next… from Macon, Georgia she is “The Flaming Princess” NICOOOOOOOOOOOLE FYRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREE!!
Starr: HERE SHE COMES! Nicole Fyre looking lit as she charges down to the ring! Nicole attacking The Sanatorium! Nicole turning the numbers game against The Sanatorium here!!!
SG1: But Alexis Diemos takes down Nicole with a Superkick to the face! That did not last long as Nicole was just completely rekked!
Starr: Madison Kaline picking up Amy Jayne as she kicks her hard in the gut. Maddie with a Snap Suplex flipping Amy across the ring. Maddie dusts off her shoulder as she raises her hands up in premature victory.
SG1: Maddie has this match on lock… Brody Sparks looks so dominant here as she chokes out La Diva with her boot. Brody showing surprising strength so far in this match for a woman of her size…
(“Dead End Game” by Haneda Kentarou hits!!!!)
RA: Introducing next… she is the “Dead End Bride” ERRRRRRRRRRRRICA FORD!!!!
Starr: Well here comes the woman who started this whole thing when she chose to defy Cleopatra.
SG1: I wonder if she still has any hair left! After Cleopatra lit it on fire last week on Empire!
Starr: What the hell is this?!?!? It’s AZUMI GOTO!!!!
(Azumi Goto appears at the top of the stage dragging Erica Ford by the hair down the ramp kicking and screaming. Erica is covered in blood as Azumi laughs psychotically and throws her hard into the ring steps.)
SG1: Azumi Goto assaulting Erica Ford before the match even begins! No wonder it took them so damn long to get out here… Azumi reaches underneath the ring and pulls out a steel chair. Azumi measures Erica Ford laying up against the ring steps…
Starr: AZUMI SWINGS WITH THE CHAIR! IT CONNECTS! AZUMI BASHING IN ERICA FORD’S HEAD AGAINST THOSE RING STEPS!!! IT SOUNDED LIKE A DAMN EXPLOSION!
SG1: There is so much history… so much bad blood between these two… It looks like Azumi Goto has not forgotten her intense beef with Erica!
Starr: Azumi tossing Erica’s lifeless body into the ring. Somehow I doubt Erica has much of a chance at winning this thing. Azumi follows Erica into the ring as I think we have every almost every competitor out here…
SG1: Nine of them in the ring by my count and it looks like The Sanatorium still has this thing under control. Brody Sparks trying to toss La Diva out of the ring but La Diva is shrieking no and demanding a Hardcore Championship shot on Showdown!
Starr: Autumn Raven coming in to help La Diva! She tried to ignore La Diva’s pleas for a tag team partner but she just couldn’t! In your heart of hearts you know that you just cannot refuse La Diva!!!
SG1: La Diva attempts to springboard back over the ropes into the ring but trips and accidentally takes down Autumn Raven! BAH GAWD THIS TEAM MAY BE IMPLODING BEFORE OUR VERY EYES!!!
Starr: I ship La Diva and Autumn Raven so hard I sure hope this isn’t the end…
SG1: Nicole Fyre showing some fire as she takes the fight back to Alexis Diemos on the other side of the ring! Nicole bashing Alexis’ head across the turnbuckle! Maddie tosses Amy Jayne over the top rope!
Starr: Amy Jayne holding on as Maddie thought she had that! Maddie trying desperately to kick Amy out of the ring! But she is holding on!
(Suddenly the arena goes black.)
SG1: KEVIN DEVASTATION IS RETURNING! HOLY SHIT!!!
Starr: I don’t think that’s it…
(A diamond encrusted throne begins to rise through the smoke on the stage as a spotlight shines down upon it. The throne slowly turns around to reveal a dark silhouette perched atop the throne.)
(“ChiRaq” by Nicki Minaj hits!!!)
RA: And finally making her entrance… she is the General Manager of Empire… CLEOOOOOOOOOOOOOPATRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAA!!!!
(Cleopatra smirks down at the ring from her throne as she props her feet up and begins to file her nails.)
SG1: What the hell? Someone get this arrogant ho in the ring!!!
Starr: Well the action in the ring appears to have completely stopped as the rest of the Vixens are all waiting for Cleopatra to make her way to the ring. She doesn’t look like she’s in much of a rush however…
SG1: Someone get Ken Stark out here and make her compete dammit! She needs to be put in her place!!!
Starr: Well Cleopatra is still the boss as far as Empire is concerned… I’m not even sure if anyone from upper management is here tonight aside from the Voltage bosses… Cleopatra might not have to enter this match until she is good and ready…
SG1: You gotta be fucking with me…
Starr: Look out! Erica Ford is back up and she’s dripping with blood! From the burns on her scalp to the whiplash on her back Erica looks like a complete monster!!! Erica charges at Azumi Goto!!!
SG1: DEAD END KICK!!!! NO WAIT!!!
Starr: Azumi dodged the Dead End Kick!!! DEAD END KICK CONNECTS ON NICOLE FYRE!!! No wait! Nicole caught the kick!!! Nicole Fyre caught the Dead End Kick at the last moment!!
SG1: Nicole shoves down the leg of Erica who nearly falls over as she jumps up on her back… THE FYREBOMB!!! THE LEG TRAP SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB CONNECTS!!!
Starr: Meanwhile it appears that Azumi Goto is helping the Sanatorium with their crusade against La Diva. Azumi with a series of extremely efficient German Suplexes to La Diva. Alexis appears to be helping her leader Madison Kaline as they stop away at Amy Jayne in the corner.
SG1: Nicole Fyre picking up Erica Ford and trying to toss her over the top rope… but Erica is struggling! Erica struggling like she has her entire career! Come on Erica don’t give up! We need you to win the crusade against Crooked Cleopatra!!
Starr: Erica Ford pulls Nicole Fyre over the top rope with her!!! NO! Nicole Fyre holding on to the bottom rope! Erica and Nicole both out there on the apron as they struggle to their feet! Both women on their knees now as they trade punches!
SG1: Nicole up to her feet first… Erica with a kick to the gut! Nicole almost falling to the ground… But Nicole grabs the top rope as she swings her legs around! Nicole holding on by her arms!!
Starr: WAIT! NICOLE SWINING HER LEGS UP TO ERICA’S NECK! HEADSCIZZORS TAKEDOWN! NICOLE TAKING ERICA TO THE OUTSIDE WITH THE HEADSCIZZORS! AND NICOLE LANDING ON THE APRON!
RA: Erica Ford has been eliminated!!!
SG1: And look as Erica Ford is convulsing outside the ring with those shocks from her shock collar! I think all of us here are shocked that Erica Ford would be the first elimination here tonight… She was many people’s favorite to win this whole thing!!!
Starr: Here comes the medical officials to remove the collar… Wait what is this?
(Cleopatra has stood up from her throne at the top of the ramp as she points menacingly backstage. The medical officials try to reason with her but she just holds up her palm.)
Cleopatra: Come back in five sweeties.
(Cleopatra wearing a long glittering silver cape walks slowly down the ramp as she spits on Erica Ford’s convulsing body.)
SG1: Cleopatra looking to torment Erica Ford even further?!?!? Does she have no regard for the health of her Vixens?
Starr: All Cleopatra cares about is causing pain to Erica Ford for refusing to work for her! Cleopatra showing what it means to be a strong leader! But has she gone too far?
SG1: Even at that low voltage Erica Ford could be suffering permanent damage from that electric shock coursing through her body!!!
Starr: Now finally Cleopatra calling for the medical staff to mercifully end this as they come running out to remove Erica’s collar. Nicole Fyre is begging Cleopatra to get in this match… will she finally lower herself to actually compete in this ring?
(The camera cuts to shots of a shocked and concerned crowd as they watch Erica Ford being helped out by the staff. The crowd shot cuts to Tomi Minns who is looking both confused and excited.)
Minns: WHEN DOES ARIA COME OUT?!?
Starr: Nicole Fyre taunting Cleopatra from the ring.
Nicole Fyre: Come fight me in the ring! Unless you’d rather sit back there and wait for Ken Stark to come out and grab that pussy!!!
SG1: Cleopatra is outraged! The Donald Trump reference has her triggered beyond repair! She is taking off her silvery coat! She’s going to get in the ring!
Starr: Wait she’s walking back up the ramp! Cleopatra shrugs as she sits back down on her throne and begins tweeting.
SG1: According to her twitter she just tweeted “lmao these ratchet hos don’t want none _#MESS _#GirlBye”.
Starr: It looks like Azumi Goto is beating the living hell out of La Diva as she connects with a hardcore backbreaker in the middle of the ring. La Diva is screaming and crying and begging for Scott Oasis to come out to be his tag team partner as he had promised.
SG1: It does not appear that Oasis is coming out however as Azumi climbs on top of La Diva wrenching her legs and back with a Boston Crab! I can’t stand to see La Diva in pain like this!
Starr: Maybe you should be her tag team partner SG1. I sure don’t want you as mine.
SG1: I bet. Nicole Fyre now joining the fight against the Sanatorium as she battles alongside Amy Jayne against Madison Kaline and Alexis Diemos in opposite corners. By battling I mean Maddie and Alexis are beating the hell out of both of them in their corners.
Starr: The Sanatorium has truly been dominant here tonight. Irish whip by both Maddie and Alexis… But both Nicole and Amy Jayne reverse it! Maddie and Alexis collide into each other! What teamwork!
SG1: Autumn Raven congratulating Nicole and Amy on taking out the Sanatorium… Wait what the hell! Brody Sparks from behind with a low blow! Brody Sparks connects with a low blow on Autumn Raven!!!
Starr: Does that even work on a Vixen?
SG1: Starr please… Empire is all about equality.
Starr: Autumn Raven is keeling over in pain as Brody is not done yet. She runs across the ropes… CURB STOMP TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!! BRODY WITH A VICIOUS CURB STOMP TO AUTUMN RAVEN! BAH GAWD!
SG1: Brody tossing Autumn over the top rope… but she tries to hang on with her legs… Brody with a series of hard shots to the groin!!! Brody working over that injured groin taking advantage of that low blow!
Starr: Autumn Raven in serious pain… She can barely hang on to the top rope with her legs… her groin muscles just can’t take this amount of punishment!!!
SG1: BRODY WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE GROIN OF AUTUMN RAVEN! HER LEGS FALL APART AS SHE FALLS TO THE OUTSIDE!!!
RA: Autumn Raven has been eliminated!!!
Starr: Autumn Raven the second Vixen to be eliminated here tonight as Brody Sparks sets her sights on a new target… And it looks like that target is La Diva!!!
SG1: La Diva tries to crawl away from the clutches of Azumi Goto but looks up into the cold menacing eyes of Brody Sparks! La Diva dodged a bullet only to step into another bullet!
Starr: Hell is about to come for La Diva… Wait what is this?!?!
SG1: Brody Sparks extending the hand of friendship to La Diva!!!
Brody: La Diva… I will be your tag team partner!!!
Starr: La Diva now looking up at Brody with a confused expression. La Diva simply cannot comprehend that Brody Sparks will be her tag team partner!
SG1: La Diva reaching out now to accept the hand of friendship from Brody Sparks! It appears that La Diva’s dream has finally come true! She has made a true friend for life here tonight at Shock Value!!
Starr: NO! BRODY SPARKS PULLING LA DIVA UP OVER HER HEAD! BROCKTON BOOT CONNECTS!!! LA DIVA LAID OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!
SG1: Brody Sparks and Azumi Goto look down at the fallen La Diva as they both laugh insanely and the crowd boos and chants for La Diva.
Crowd: LA LA DIVA LA LA!!! LA LA DIVA LA LA!!! LA LA DIVA LA LA!!!
Starr: Slowly now La Diva is actually getting back to her feet! Holy shit look at the will and determination from this Vixen! La Diva just will not stay down!
SG1: Brody Sparks now again offering the hand of friendship… to AZUMI! Azumi laughs as she takes Brody’s hand…
Starr: Brody and Azumi charge in as La Diva pulls herself to her feet using the ropes! DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE CONNECTS! LA DIVA FLIPPING OVER THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE!!!
RA: La Diva has been eliminated!
SG1: WAIT AZUMI GOTO TRYING TO FLIP BRODY SPARKS OVER THE TOP! THE DOUBLE CROSS FROM AZUMI!!!
Starr: Brody Sparks flipped over the top by Azumi as she lands on the apron! Can she hold on!
SG1: Meanwhile Nicole Fyre coming off the top with a Crossbody taking down both Madison Kaline and Alexis Diemos! Nicole Fyre is truly on fyre here tonight! Amirite Starr?
Starr: Please no… SG1 why you doin’ this gurrl? And why the hell did Amy Jayne just do that! Amy Jayne attacking Azumi Goto from behind! Azumi nearly had Brody eliminated from this match only for Amy Jayne to ruin it!
SG1: Amy Jayne making a costly rookie mistake there as her interference has allowed Brody to roll back into the ring… Azumi likely had her eliminated otherwise… Amy Jayne with a series of forearms sending Azumi back against the ropes…
Starr: Amy with an Irish Whip to Azumi… but she reverses it! Amy thrown across the ring… and taken down with a headscizzors by Brody! Brody back in this thing now as she shoves Maddie out of the way and charges in at Azumi!
SG1: SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR! Azumi didn’t see that coming with Maddie in the way as Brody just took Azumi Goto down with the kind of spear that would drive a teenage girl to suicide!
Starr: Brody now stalking her prey as Amy Jayne pulls herself up using the turnbuckle… Brody slams Amy’s head into the turnbuckle as she lifts her up to the top… Brody backing up slightly into the ring…
SG1: BRODY CHARGES IN RUNNING UP THE TURNBUCKLE AND GRABBING AMY JAYNE’S HEAD! BRODY LEAPS OVER THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE SLAMMING AMY JAYNE FACE FIRST INTO THE FLOOR!
Starr: BUT BRODY LANDS ON THE APRON! THE MODIFIED SPARKS FLY CONNECTS ON AMY JAYNE TO THE OUTSIDE!!!
RA: Amy Jayne has been eliminated!
SG1: Brody Sparks has been the truly dominant force of this match. Despite her size she has eliminated three Vixens so far from this match. And looking at the way she is stalking Azumi… she might be planning to eliminate at least one more!
Starr: It looks like the fyre has died out a little now as Madison Kaline and Alexis Diemos are now bringing the fight back to Nicole Fyre!
SG1: I see… So it is okay when you say it?
Starr: It is never okay to be honest… But Nicole is in trouble here as Maddie and Alexis have her trapped in the corner trying to maneuver her out of the ring. Nicole struggling as she grabs that pole tightly.
SG1: Nicole Fyre has that pole so tightly grasped as she struggles to latch onto the massive pole. Nicole puts the giant pole between her legs as Maddie and Alexis try to kick her off the pole but she is screaming and refusing to get off!
Starr: Nicole might not be able to hold on much longer!
SG1: WHAT THE HELL! CLEOPATRA WITH A STEEL CHAIR SHOT OUTTA NOWHERE!!!
RA: Nicole Fyre has been eliminated!!!
Starr: CLEOPATRA COMING OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THAT STEEL CHAIR TO THE SKULL OF NICOLE FYRE! NICOLE’S LEGS GIVING WAY AS SHE FALLS TO THE FLOOR! SHE IS BUSTED WIDE OPEN!!!
SG1: Cleo slamming down the chair next to Nicole as she walks away. Cleopatra apparently didn’t take kindly to Nicole Fyre’s taunts earlier trying to get her to actually enter the ring for this match… Cleopatra yet again showing what happens when you fuck with the boss!
Starr: Cleo laughing now as she walks back up the ramp to her throne.
SG1: WAIT FROM BEHIND! NICOLE FYRE HAS THE STEEL CHAIR! NICOLE CONNECTS TO THE BACK OF CLEOPATRA WITH THE STEEL CHAIR! CLEO LOOKS LIKE SHE HAS JUST BEEN SAVAGED BY THAT CHAIR!
Starr: Nicole Fyre with yet another chair shot as Cleopatra trips over her long silvery cape and rolls down the ramp towards the ring! Nicole chasing after her with the chair as Cleopatra tries to crawl away. Cleo is crawling into the ring!!!
SG1: Officials refusing to let Nicole Fyre do anymore damage as Cleo crawls into a corner of the ring to escape Nicole! Nicole has been eliminated… she needs to head backstage but she isn’t finished yet with this dastardly bitch Cleopatra! Im rlly bored
Starr: The officials seem to have talked some sense into Nicole as she is finally making her way backstage. Cleopatra now taunting her from the ring as Nicole walks backstage through the curtain.
Cleopatra: YEAH YOU BETTER RUN FROM ME! DO YOU KNOW WHO THE HELL I AM?!?!?
SG1: Cleopatra laughs as she turns around in the ring…
Starr: AND FINDS FOUR ANGRY BITCHES WAITING FOR HER! AZUMI GOTO, BRODY SPARKS, MADISON KALINE, AND ALEXIS DIEMOS ALL CHARGING HER AT ONCE!
SG1: The beatdown of the General Manager of Empire is on as Azumi Goto and the Sisters of the Sanatorium are punching and slapping and clawing and kicking at Cleopatra who hasn’t even gotten her entrance cape off yet!
Starr: Brody Sparks grabbing the cape of Cleopatra as she begins to choke her out in the ring! These Vixens showing what they think of Cleo’s leadership on Empire! Maddie spitting on Cleopatra as Alexis locks in an Ankle Lock on Cleo’s leg!
SG1: WAIT AZUMI GOTO FROM BEHIND WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF ALEXIS! AZUMI FLIPS ALEXIS DIEMOS OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE!!!
RA: Alexis Diemos has been eliminated!
Starr: Maddie and Brody now noticing what just happened as that devious wolf in sheep’s clothing Azumi Goto has betrayed them yet again! They were too focused on beating down Cleopatra they didn’t even expect her to double cross them…
SG1: Azumi proving she has no loyalties in this match to anyone but herself as she has betrayed a possible alliance with the Sanatorium at every turn. Honestly given their personalities you would think she would be a perfect fit…
Starr: Cleopatra getting a breather for now as Maddie throws hard right hands at Azumi Goto who swiftly dodges them. BUT AZUMI CAN’T DODGE A SPEAR FROM BRODY SPARKS! SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR!
SG1: Vixen spears are the most powerful spears in the game and Brody Sparks at 120 pounds proving exactly why!
Starr: Maddie now hitting Brody Sparks on the shoulder and pointing to Cleopatra. She wants to get the GM out of this match! Brody and Maddie now looking to pick up Cleo as she screams and tries to crawl back out under the ropes towards her throne at the top of the ramp!
SG1: Cleopatra clearly never wanted to enter this match. She has no intentions at all of fighting here tonight…
Starr: But she was forced to be in this match by Ken Stark and she needs to actually fight for it! Brody and Maddie dragging Cleopatra up and over the ropes kicking and screaming as she latches onto the top rope with arms and legs in a complete vice grip.
SG1: Cleo refusing to give up as Brody Sparks punches her hard with closed fist shots to the face. Her nose may be broke as Maddie tries to claw out her eyes! But Cleo will not let go! She absolutely refuses to let go of her power and her complete control over Empire!!!
Starr: Maddie now going through the ropes to the apron and trying to pry Cleopatra off the ropes finger by finger. Maddie pulls one of Cleopatra’s legs off the ropes… BUT CLEO KICKS HER IN THE FACE! MADDIE IS FALLING!!!
SG1: NO! Brody Sparks caught Maddie before she fell! That was a close one for the self proclaimed leader of the Sanatorium Sisters!
Starr: Brody and Maddie together can’t break Cleo’s grip on that rope… She can’t stay like that forever can she?!?!
SG1: AZUMI GOTO FROM BEHIND! AZUMI WITH A SPRINGBOARD FOREARM SMASH ACROSS THE RING TO THE BACK OF BRODY SPARKS! WHAT FORCE AS BRODY IS THROWN FORWARD WITH CLEOPATRA OVER THE TOP ROPE AS THEY COLLIDE INTO MADDIE!
Starr: MADDIE FLYING TO THE OUTSIDE WITH FORCE AS SHE BASHES HER HEAD AGAINST THE STEEL RAMP! CLEOPATRA TUMBLING OVER AS BRODY SPARKS JUST BARELY CLINGS ON TO THE BOTTOM ROPE WITH ONE ARM! BRODY’S FOOT HITS THE FLOOR BUT SHE SWINGS BACK UP TO THE APRON!!!
SG1: BLOODLUST KNEE KICK! THE BLOODLUST KNEE KICK BY AZUMI CONNECTS TO BRODY AS SHE FALLS TO THE OUTSIDE!!!
RA: Madison Kaline, Cleopatra, and Brody Sparks have been eliminated!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
RA: Here is your winner of the first ever Control in the Vault briefcase… AZUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMI GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
(“Evolution” by Girugamesh hits as the official hands the Control in the Vault briefcase to Azumi Goto as she falls to her knees clutching it tightly to her chest!!
SG1: AZUMI GOTO DID IT! “ARROGANCE PERSONIFIED” HAS WON THE RIGHT TO TAKE OVER COMPLETE CONTROL OF EMPIRE FOR 24 HOURS!
Starr: GOD HELP US ALL! IT NOW OCCURS TO ME THAT EMPIRE IS ABSOLUTELY NOT IN SAFE HANDS UNDER THE CONTROL OF THIS CRAZY ASS HO!
SG1: This bitch definitely be cray but I think we need to start things off on a sweeter note than that. Start asskissing now Starr! Maybe Azumi will give us a raise!!
(Cleopatra steps out to the stage with a scared and concerned look on her face as Azumi holds up the briefcase in the ring smiling sinisterly out at her.)
(The camera cuts to an advertisement for the new Jacob Senn documentary “The Arm that Runs the Farm” documenting his early years on his plantation.) jesus
(A video package plays highlighting the friendship between Carson Ramsay and Kenny Drake. A collection of their tag matches and skits are shown leading into their fallout post Pain For Pride as Kenny Drake would brutally laying out Carson Ramsay and shocking the world. This would cause a heated rivalry between the two as Kenny would form the Wolvesden and make it his mission to make Carson’s life a living hell, attacking him several times, threatening his sister and even writing the contract for this match in Ramsay’s own blood. Carson Ramsay ended up snapping and deeming himself the “Wolfslayer”, taking the fight back to Kenny in the lead up to this show.)
(Following the video package we are taken over to ringside. “Daylight” by Yelawolf begins to play and the crowd goes crazy for Carson Ramsay who comes out with a cattle prod in each of his hands.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is an Electric Death Match and it is scheduled for one fall! The only way to defeat your opponent is to keep them down for the count of ten! Introducing first, from Batman, Turkey! Weighing in at 230 pounds! He is “The Wolfslayer”…..CAAAARRRSOOOONNN RAMSAAAAYYYYY!!
WWEFan: Carson Ramsay is wasting no time in getting to the ring right now! He rushes in and he’s calling for Kenny Drake to get out right away! Carson already has two instruments of pain ready to use in the ring! He wants to get his hands on Kenny BAD! Carson has spent nearly six months dealing with this guy and tonight he looks to finally put it all to rest. Carson had all of the momentum in the world after Pain For Pride 9 and this little detour with his former best friend has been the thing stopping him from progressing, it is time to go through the roadblock and continue on to his road to glory!
“REACH OUT AND TOUCH FAITH”
(The lights go out and “Personal Jesus” by Depeche Mode plays as Kenny Drake comes out with Niki Khan by his side. A few member of his Wolvesden are behind him but he signals for them to head to the back so he can carry on on his own. He turns his attention to what’s ahead and smiles smugly as he gestures to the booing audience. He laughs at the angry Carson Ramsay while coming down the ramp before turning around, showing off his black leather jacket as a special design which reads “Made in Oregon” is patched onto it.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent! From Portland, Oregon! Weighing in at 200 pounds! He is “The Killer of Saints”
Kawajai: Kenny Drake right now is coming down the ramp, taking his time to egg on his opponent. Kenny is having fun and games but you know he must be hesitant to get in the ring after last week. Carson left a nasty mark on his head after putting out that cigarette on his skin! Kenny slides into the ring or at least looks like he will! He slides back out and gives Niki a kiss on the cheek but — OH CARSON ISN’T GOING TO LET HIM STALL ANY LONGER! CARSON RAMSAY JUST CAME OUT WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM AND GOES FLYING STRAIGHT INTO THE BODY OF KENNY DRAKE WITH A SUICIDE DIVE! NIKI KHAN JUST GOT CLIPPED AS WELL AS SHE GOES DOWN! CARSON CAN’T WAIT ANYMORE AS HE IS GOING TO TOWN ON KENNY DRAKE, THE REFEREE NOW SEES THAT HE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO SIGNAL FOR THE BELL AND GET THIS UNDERWAY!
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: CARSON RAMSAY IS LETTING OUT ALL OF HIS PENT UP AGGRESSION RIGHT NOW AS HE HAS KENNY DRAKE PINNED DOWN ON THE FLOOR! HE’S TEEING OFF ON HIM RIGHT NOW! Kenny Drake is disoriented as he was absolutely surprised by this attack! All he can do is cover up and try to endure the barrage Carson Ramsay is throwing his way! Kenny Drake is trying to crawl off but Carson Ramsay stays on him! PUNCHES TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! UGH! YOU CAN HEAR THE SOUNDS AS CARSON’S CLOSED FISTS BOUNCE OFF OF KENNY’S HEAD! Niki Khan has gotten up and is seeing what’s going on! There she goes with some smacks to the back of Carson, trying to get Carson away from Kenny!
Kawajai: She’s managed to get Carson Ramsay off of her husband but now he’s got his eyes set on her! WOAH! Carson Ramsay has both hands grasping the hair of Niki Khan, what is this maniac — HE JUST TOSSED HER HEAD FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! HOLY SHIT! NIKI KHAN IS OUT COLD! THAT’S A WOMAN HE JUST DID THAT TO! LOOK AT THE LOOK IN HIS EYES, THERE’S NO REMORSE AT ALL! WHAT IN THE HELL IS WRONG WITH HIM?
WWEFan: Carson Ramsay has come tonight on a mission! He wants revenge and will do anything to get back at Kenny Drake! He just took Niki out of the equation with that blow and now he can return his attention back to his nemesis, who seems to be back on his feet and is now trying to get some distance from Carson! That won’t work though! Carson pulls Kenny back by his jacket and brings him in! BACK SUPLEX ONTO THE EDGE OF THE APRON! Kenny shoots up and lets out a shout as all of that force just shot up through his spine! Carson follows that up with a clothesline, catching Kenny in his neck! Kenny’s head nearly crashed into the steel steps there, what a hard fall to the floor! Kenny puts his hands up to to keep from falling on his face, but him being on his fours nearly serves as an opportunity for Carson!
Kawajai: SOCCER KICK TO THE RIB CAGE! Kenny goes rolling in pain around ringside once more! Carson has been beating on Kenny all over the outside area so far and right now it looks like it’s going to move over to next to us! Kenny Drake is trying to take refuge in the time keeper’s area, pushing past the ring announcer and the chairs! I think he’s going for the exit through the crowd, perhaps to get a breather or maybe straight up to get away from Carson!
WWEFan: Carson looks undisturbed by Kenny’s cowardice, he just still has that same look, that same, cold, focused, look. Carson has his eyes set on Kenny like Jason Vorhees on one of his victims as he leans in and grabs Kenny who — OUCH! KENNY TURNS AROUND AND JUST TASED CARSON RAMSAY! KENNY JUST BURIED THAT TASER DEEP INTO CARSON’S CHEST AS HE PRESSES DOWN ON THE BUTTON AS HARD AS HE CAN! CARSON FALLS OVER, SHAKING UNTIL HIS BODY GOES MOMENTARILY LIMP! KENNY WITH SOME DESPERATE STRATEGY THERE AS IT APPEARS HE GOT THAT TASER OUT OF HIS JACKET POCKET, HE JUST NEEDED THE PERFECT TIME TO BRING IT OUT AFTER CARSON’S AMBUSH!
Kawajai: Kenny Drake is smiling ear to ear as he takes his finger and taps his head, showing how he outsmarted Carson Ramsay there! Kenny could have the referee go for a ten count on Carson here but I think he recognizes that he’ll probably need more than that to keep Carson Ramsay down. He drags Carson up to his feet and rolls him into the ring. Kenny goes to follow — but then he turns and sees the medics looking over Niki as they are taking her away from ringside! Kenny didn’t even get to notice what had been happening. His expression has just changed to one of anger as he rushes back into the ring! He stalks Carson and watches him return to a vertical base! Kenny is looking to let out some anger of his own — THE JOHNNY CUETO RIGHT HOOK CONNECTS RIGHT ACROSS THE JAW, DROPPING CARSON!
WWEFan: Kenny shakes that hand as he may have hurt it with how hard that shot was, the other hand of his is full as he keeps that taser in his hand, pressing down on the button as he listens to the sound excitedly. He walks over to his downed opponent……AND THEN DROPS DOWN ON CARSON WITH AN ELBOW DROP, BRINGING HIS WHOLE ARM DOWN ONTO RAMSAY THERE! KENNY HAD THAT TASER IN HIS HAND, ALL OF THAT ELECTRICITY WENT STRAIGHT TO THE HEART OF CARSON AS HE IS SUCKING UP AIR RIGHT NOW, ALL OF THE WIND HAVING JUST BEEN TAKEN OUT OF HIM.
Kawajai: Carson is coughing and spitting up right now. He can’t get up on his own right now and so he reaches out for the ropes, but Kenny pushes him away from them! Kenny again has that taser….and zaps Carson’s side! AND ANOTHER TO THE NECK! GOSH! He’ll be feeling that for a while for sure! Kenny finishes up with a stomp to the chest before shouting at the referee to begin his count, the first one of the match up!
WWEFan: Carson Ramsay isn’t going to go down that easily! He’s rolling onto his stomach and pushing himself back up to his feet, much to the chagrin of Kenny who runs up to him and PLANTS him with a spinning neckbreaker, making sure to spike Carson on his head there! Kenny is now slamming Carson’s head against the canvas, looking to do as much damage as possible! He has tossed away that taser and is now working Carson over with his bare hands! He takes his hands AND GOES TO STRANGLE CARSON! HE’S TRYING TO CHOKE THE LIFE OUT OF HIM RIGHT NOW AS CARSON IS TURNING ALL KINDS OF COLORS, KICKING AROUND AS HE IS FRANTIC TO GET OUT OF THIS! THERE IS NO DISQUALIFICATIONS HERE SO KENNY CAN KEEP THIS IN AS LONG AS HE LIKES!
Kawajai: Carson DIGS his nails into the eyes of Kenny as Kenny falls over blinded! Carson now has a break as he looks toward the corner! Those two cattle prods he brought to the ring with him are leaned up against the turnbuckle! Carson’s face just lit up! He’s crawling as fast as he can right now, he’s going for them! Kenny is starting to recover though and he jumps for Carson! He’s got Carson by the leg, he’s dragging him away from his potential lifeline in this match up! Carson is literally clawing at the canvas, doing everything he can to stay put but Kenny is pulling him with all of his might! Carson is getting up on one leg here! Carson is still in a bad position here…..HANG ON! CARSON CAUGHT KENNY WITH AN ENZUIGIRI TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD, KENNY HAS BEEN STUNNED!
WWEFan: Kenny backs away and Carson gets up looking to capitalize — but Kenny makes a recovery and responds with a pele kick! Carson is once again on the defensive as he falls over into the ropes! Carson hooks his arm on the middle rope and comes back like a pendulum as he charges at Kenny! WICKED CHARMS LARIAT TURNING KENNY INSIDE OUT! Kenny will definitely have trouble recovering this time! Carson Ramsay now has the opening he needed here as he rolls over to the corner and picks himself up a cattle prod! He gets behind Kenny with evil intentions, Kenny senses the dangers and looks to escape but Carson ends up getting the cattle prod under Kenny’s chin and then pulling him back! He lays him out with a Russian legsweep as now he is left vulnerable!
Kawajai: My god! Carson Ramsay is just POUNDING that cattle prod into Kenny Drake’s chest over and over again! Kenny is feeling more than just the shock there, Carson is straight up using the cattle prod as a blunt object! Kenny is starting to move away as he looks to escape to the outside but Carson jabs the cattle prod into his lower back, stopping him in his tracks! Carson Ramsay now grabs Kenny Drake by the waist and deadlifts him up! German suplex! Shades of his PFP 9 opponent who happens to be in the arena with us tonight! There he goes giving Carson a nod from ringside! Kenny got dropped on his cranium there as he retreats toward the ropes!
WWEFan: Carson follows him but is unable to catch up with Kenny as he ducks under him and then heads to the opposite side of the ring! Kenny runs up the ropes, balancing himself on the top rope! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT, NAILING CARSON BEFORE HE CAN GET TO HIM! Kenny kips up and heads to Carson! He kicks the cattle prod out of the ring and heads toward the corner, retrieving the other! Smart move, now Kenny is in possession of the only one! Kenny has the cattle prod in the ring and lays it on the top turnbuckle, using the tag rope attached to it to tie the two together! This does not look good if you ask me! Kenny walks up to Carson while he recovers and grabs him by the hand — IRISH WHIP INTO THAT CATTLE PROD IN THE CORNER, IT JUST SMACKED CARSON RIGHT IN THE FACE! CARSON’S NOSE JUST EXPLODED THERE AS IT IS POURING BLOOD! MY GOODNESS! CARSON IS USING HIS HANDS TO COVER UP AS THE WHITE TAPE WRAPPED ON HIS FISTS ARE TURNING A BRIGHT RED!
Kawajai: Kenny Drake lets out a howl and then makes a mad dash at Carson! SPLASH! CARSON GOT SANDWICHED BY KENNY AND THAT CATTLE PROD RIGHT AS HE GOT UP, BEING FORCED INTO THAT SHOCK! CARSON FALLS OVER IN A DAZE AS THE REFEREE NOW BEGINS TO COUNT!
WWEFan: Carson Ramsay doesn’t look like he even knows where he is right now but is currently making the effort to get back up to his feet! He will not give up without a fight though the question is if he’ll make it up to his feet in time!
Referee: FIVEEEEEEE!!!! SIXXXXXXXX!!!! SEVEN —
Kawajai: Carson Ramsay shoots up, only to fall right back down! Carson might have done that on instinct as he knew the count was getting close! Carson is currently being held up by the middle rope, that being the only thing stopping the referee from starting up a count once again! Kenny Drake grabs Carson by the legs and dumps the body to the outside! CARSON RAMSAY GOES TUMBLING DOWN HARD!
WWEFan: Carson keeps a grip on the apron and is trying to climb back into the ring but as he sticks his head out THERE GOES KENNY DRAKE WITH A SUPERKICK! CARSON IS HUNCHED OVER AS HE FALLS FORWARD INTO KENNY’S ARMS! DDT! Carson somehow is still hanging up on that middle rope though! Kenny grabs Carson and pushes him up, forcing him to stand while he lays into him with body shots! Kenny lets out a laugh between each strike as he dances around and messes with the crowd! Kenny is having a blast right now as he can just have fun here! Kenny brings up the chin of Carson and cocks back his fist, he’s looking for another Johnny Cueto right hook!
Kenny Drake: (without a microphone) Where’s the Wolf Slayer now!? This is what happens when you bite the hand that feeds you, kid!
Kawajai: AND AN ACT OF DEFIANCE BY CARSON AS HE HUCKS A LOOGIE RIGHT IN THE FACE OF KENNY DRAKE! Kenny can’t believe this! He goes for the Cueto but Carson catches him with a headbutt! Kenny Drake staggers back….but uses it as momentum to come back at Carson Ramsay! SPEAR THROUGH THE ROPES AND TO THE OUTSIDE AS KENNY AND CARSON ARE LAUNCHED INTO THE STEEL BARRICADE! I DON’T KNOW WHO GOT THE WORST OF THAT ONE! KENNY MIGHT HAVE MESSED HIMSELF UP BADLY IN THAT FIT OF RAGE, HE’S HOLDING HIS NECK WHICH IS WORRYING OUR REF RIGHT NOW!
WWEFan: The official has head to the outside and is looking over both men to see their condition! The referee sees both men as they are groaning in pain and is looking to start up a DOUBLE COUNT!
Referee: ONE! TWO —
WWEFan: Carson Ramsay yanks at the pant leg of the referee, begging him to stop the count! None of this draw nonsense, we are getting a decisive winner, even if it kills these men tonight! Both Kenny Drake and Carson Ramsay are making progress to their feet! Kenny Drake is using the steps while Carson uses the crowd restraint as a crutch! Hey! Look at what’s in Kenny’s hand! He just reached into the ring and got that taser he threw to the side earlier, Carson is once again none the wiser of it! Kenny Drake goes to zap Carson with it — BUT CARSON TAKES A MUG OF BEER FROM A FAN IN THE CROWD AND SMASHES IT OVER THE HEAD OF KENNY, INTERRUPTING HIS ATTACK! KENNY JUST FELL OVER! BLOOD IS GUSHING OUT OF HIS FOREHEAD AS HE IS LITERALLY SHIVERING IN A PANIC! KENNY IS FREAKING OUT, TRYING TO WIPE THE BLOOD FROM HIS EYES AS THE REFEREE CHECKS HIS STATUS!
Kawajai: The referee better get the hell out of the way! MAFIA KICK BY CARSON RAMSAY, SMASHING KENNY’S TEMPLE UP AGAINST THE STEEL RING POST! CARSON IS LOOKING TO END THIS RIGHT HERE! HE LETS KENNY FALL TO THE GROUND AS THE REFEREE GOES FOR THE COUNT!
WWEFan: This is a formality at this point. Kenny’s eyes are glazed over, his body covered in blood….he’s donezo.
Referee: SIXXXX!! SEVENNN!!!
Kawajai: No, Fan. It’s not over until the count is up, he’s raising his hand, he has some movement.
WWEFan: Unbelievable. Kenny Drake is getting back up! He uses that hand to reach for the ring tarp and yanks himself up! Kenny is on his feet but he’s on spaghetti legs! He throws a punch at Carson but Carson easily telegraphs it and moves out of the way! Carson rolls his eyes and brings him in! FATEFUL EIGHTY NINE! FATEFUL EIGHTY NINE!
Kawajai: NO! NO! Kenny slips out and drops to his knees! LOW BLOW! KENNY WITH A LAST RESORT THERE AS HE TAKES OUT CARSON! KENNY SEEMS TO BE OUT OF ENERGY AS HE FALLS BACK INTO THAT MESS OF BLOOD AND GLASS ON THE FLOOR! He’s stalled a little bit but now he needs to think of something to do, this is where you look around at your surroundings, this is when you act! Kenny Drake finds his taser once again and with everything he has goes to the stomach of Carson and holds down the button for as long as he can! The sound of that taser searing flesh is cringeworthy! Carson is huddled up in a ball right now holding his gut, the pain must be unbearable!
WWEFan: It also will be a huge distraction from the task at hand, this has just given Kenny Drake a lot of time! Kenny is making his way to our announce table! Eugh, his blood is literally pouring onto our desk right now as — Hey! What are you doing with that?
Kawajai: Kenny just took Fan’s water bottle and has now dumped it over his head to wash away the blood! That should help a bit, with his eyes flushed out his sight will be much better! He turns back to Carson Ramsay and stands over him….CURB STOMP TO THE HEAD! KENNY SLAMMED HIS BOOT INTO THE SIDE OF CARSON’S HEAD, HE CAUGHT CARSON IN THE EAR THERE TOO! HIS HEARING, HIS EQUILIBRIUM, ALL OF THAT COULD BE MESSED WITH THAT! Kenny is looking frustrated here, nothing has went as he planned! He is still loopy from the blood loss but is moving as fast as he can now as he takes the mats on the ground and flips them over, exposing the concrete! Uh oh….Kenny Drake places Carson Ramsay between his knees! OH MAN, HE’S LOOKING TO GO FOR THE PILEDRIVER ON THE CONCRETE!
WWEFan: RAMSAY! CARSON RAMSAY JUST COUNTERED THE PILEDRIVER WITH A BACK BODY DROP OVER THE STEEL BARRICADE, SENDING KENNY FLYING INTO THE FRONT ROW! KENNY DRAKE IS UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH THE FANS AS THEY SHOUT JEERS AT HIM! HE TELLS THEM TO BACK OFF BUT HE NEEDS TO QUIT WORRYING ABOUT THEM BECAUSE HERE COMES CARSON RAMSAY WHO GOES FLYING OVER THE BARRICADE TO JOIN HIM FOR A LOU THESZ PRESS! CARSON HAS GOTTEN CONTROL OF THE MATCH HAVING JOCKEYED FOR POSITION. KENNY DRAKE IS GRABBED BY THE TIGHTS AND THEN FLUNG INTO A ROW OF CHAIRS!
Kawajai: Kenny Drake brings himself up out of that pile of chairs as he is unaware that Carson is currently measuring him; running knee lift! Kenny Drake is again in a daze as he attempts to escape up the stairs on shakey knees. OH! Carson with clubbing blows to the back though to halt him! Carson gets a good handful of Kenny’s hair now as — What is he doing?
Carson Ramsay: (without microphone) Hey guys, hold him for me!
Kawajai: Carson throws Kenny into the grips of two fans as they hold back his arms from moving around! Carson takes his and lights up Kenny’s chest with a knife edged chop! And another! And another! Carson is delivering a frenzy of chops and Kenny can do nothing about it! Carson finally backs off, it looks like he’s done!
Carson Ramsay: Okay boys, let him go…..now you two hold him!
WWEFan: No he’s not! Carson just let another set of fans hold Kenny as he now repeats the process! Now this is what you call fan interaction! Kenny manages to push the group away though and nails Carson with the SHOTEI! Open palm thrust to the face, further damaging the damaged nose of Carson Ramsay! Carson takes a step back after that blow! Oh geez, Carson is losing his balance on the stairs now! He reaches out for the guard rail but it’s too late! Kenny gives him a good shove and CARSON RAMSAY FALLS DOWN THE STAIRS, GOING ALL OF THE WAY BACK TO THE FRONT ROW! CARSON JUST WENT DOWN THOSE STAIRS LIKE A RAGDOLL! MAN, WHAT A FALL! Kenny is now urging the referee to make the count!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!
WWEFan: Carson is looking lifeless….his eyes are open but he’s not all there.
Referee: FOUR! FIVE! SIX!
Kawajai: We’re now past the halfway point of the count, it looks like this may be over.
WWEFan: Wait, wait, wait Kawajai! Can’t count out Carson just yet, he’s moving. There’s hope!
Referee: SEVEN! EIGHT!
Kawajai: He’s pulling himself back up but can he make it in time is the question!
Referee: NINEEEEE!!! TEEE —
WWEFan: Indeed he can! Carson is up, he has beat the count! Kenny now heads down to him at the bottom of those stairs! WOAH! KENNY JUST SLID DOWN THE RAIL AND CAME FLYING INTO CARSON RAMSAY WITH A DROPKICK, FORCING HIM INTO THE CROWD RESTRAINT! Kenny Drake leans over the barricade, reaching to the floor as he picks back up that cattle prod he threw out the ring! Kenny gets Carson in the collar with a shock! Carson is going to be having bruises all over his body after tonight!
Kawajai: Carson Ramsay is easy pickings right now as Kenny gets him again and again with that prod, softening him up before scooping him up over his shoulders and then walking back up those stairs! Kenny is heading further and further up the rafters of the arena! Kenny is now hovering over the balcony! They’re right above our production tables as all kinds of equipment and monitors lay over them. Oh boy….You don’t think Kenny is looking to dump Carson Ramsay onto those do you?
WWEFan: That truly would end Carson Ramsay once and for all! Kenny tosses the cattle prod back to the ground and then repositions Carson! Kenny is showing some amazing strength as he brings up Carson over his head in guerilla press position!
Kenny Drake: It’s the end of the road Carson! You’re finished — UGH!
WWEFan: Carson Ramsay fish hooks Kenny Drake, Carson is yanking at the mouth of Kenny! Kenny is looking to bite him but then Carson uses the other hand to claw at his face! Kenny has loosened his hold over Carson as Carson lands behind him before falling back! Carson trips up, landing on the ground right next to the cattle prod! Both men know they must act as they lunge for it and engage in a struggle as the fans have an up close look at the fight! These two are rolling around on that floor, their clothes covered in dried up blood and the dirt from this dingy floor! Kenny wants that cattle prod bad but Carson gets him with a kick to the abdomen! Carson has it! ZAP TO THE CHEST! Kenny falls back against the balcony! Oh no, this is not a good place to be! Carson guns for him but KENNY! OH MY GOD KENNY JUST TOSSED HIM OVER THE STANDS!
Kawajai: NO, CARSON IS HANGING ON! HE IS LITERALLY ON THE LEDGE RIGHT NOW, SO CLOSE TO FALLING THROUGH THOSE TABLES AND TO THE FLOOR! KENNY IS TAKING HIS BOOT AND IS LITERALLY USING IT TO TRY AND PUSH CARSON TO HIS DEMISE HERE! CARSON SWINGS THAT CATTLE PROD AT HIM TO KEEP HIM AT BAY BUT THEY SOON ENGAGE IN A STRUGGLE ONCE AGAIN, THIS TIME IT’S BIGGER STAKES FOR CARSON AS ONE FALSE MOVE CAN HAVE HIM OFF THE LEDGE! HE MAKES SURE TO KEEP ONE HAND ON THAT GUARD RAIL AS KENNY PULLS AND HE PULLS AT THAT CATTLE PROD IN HIS OTHER! HE’S GOT IT! OH NO!
WWEFan: KENNY REACHES OVER TO TRY AND ZAP HIM WITH THE CATTLE PROD AS CARSON LEANS BACK AS FAR AS HE CAN! He can see the charge of that cattle prod just inches away from his face! Carson’s hands are loosening their grip around the rail! He’s slipping, he’s going down OH! CARSON GRABS KENNY BY THE ARM AND PULLS HIM WITH HIM, KENNY FLIPS OVER THE RAIL AND FALLS OFF THE LEDGE WITH HIM! THEY GO DOWN THROUGH THE TABLES FULL OF TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT! DEAR GOD WHAT A SPILL!!!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Kawajai: WHAT THE HELL HAVE WE JUST WITNESSED!? THOSE TWO MEN HAVE JUST DESTROYED EACH OTHER! THE REFEREE RUNS DOWN TO CHECK ON THEM AND BOTH MEN ARE MOTIONLESS! THE REFEREE IS UNSURE OF WHAT TO DO HERE! HE DIDN’T WANT TO DO A DOUBLE COUNT BUT HE MAY HAVE TO!
WWEFan: HE’S GOT TO AT THIS POINT! Against his judgement, the referee hesitantly starts up his count!
WWEFan: Still no movement! From either, it’s over!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(The crowd boos at the result as both men are still unable to get up. The EMTs rush over to tend to Carson and Kenny, running through the crowd.)
Kawajai: I am speechless. Speechless. That fall was truly scary, who knows what their condition is right now.
WWEFan: These men killed each other tonight. I don’t know if either of them will ever be the same again. Medics are tending to them right now as both men are unresponsive. Kenny Drake is the first to be loaded up on a stretcher and Carson Ramsay gets put up next. It’s off to the hospital these two go.
Kawajai: I am hoping that these two have a speedy recovery. It sucks that the match had to end this way but still, what a performance by both men. We’re going to need to take a break from the arena for a moment to get these two out of here but we’ll be back at ringside soon.
(We cut to the backstage area as Flannery McCoy is standing by with a smile on her face.)
Flannery McCoy: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time……NASIR CAPITANI!
(Nasir enters the picture as you can hear the crowd cheering all the way from ringside. He sports a “Agent of Change” T-Shirt, making sure to show it off to the camera.)
Nasir Capitani: Oklahoma City, what’s poppin though? (laughs) Thanks for having me, Flannery.
Flannery McCoy: No, thank you for being here Nasir. I’m sure you have a lot on your mind as tonight you head into a Blackout match with our Voltage General Manager, Carlos Rosso. I was wondering if we could quickly get your thoughts on the situation? Are you at all worried about going up against someone like Carlos, especially knowing that he is also your boss?
Nasir Capitani: Well for one thing Flannery, Carlos Rosso has never been a boss of mine but tonight especially that rings true. The dynamic tonight is not going to be employee and employer but instead opponent vs opponent. He’s entering the ring as Carlos Rosso, the competitor, not Carlos Rosso, the General Manager. There will be no need for passive aggressive threats, no need for security to get involved and no need for under the table attacks from his boys, he will have to go and fight me man to man like he should have a long time ago! Finally Carlos will get what he deserves! Do you know how long I have been waiting for this? I’ve begged for this match for MONTHS! All of that time I spent sitting at home due to my suspension, I would watch Voltage, see his face on my TV and think up all kinds of ways that I could take him out, I’ve probably played this scenario out in my head a good thousand times at this point. Now don’t get me wrong, I know what he can do as a competitor, I know how much of a great wrestler he was — but I’m not scared. I’m excited in fact. I want him to be riled up. I WANT him to be at one hundred percent. I WANT him to enter that ring and be ready to tear me apart….because that will be the same attitude I’m going to carry towards him. This is more than just a match to me, this is standing up for what is right, this is doing what nobody else in the back will do and that’s standing up against bullshit management. Carlos may have thought that censoring my voice would somehow silence my movement but he is sorely mistaken, my fists will be doing all of the talking I need, I promise you that.
(With that Nasir Capitani walks off as the crowd continues to cheer for him and we head back to ringside.)
(DING DING DING!)
Announcer: The FOLLOWING CONTEST! Is the TOP PROSPECT SSSSSSCRAMBLE MATCH!!! The RULES are as follows: NINE MEN are currently in the ring. There is a FIFTEEN MINUTE TIME LIMIT. The Person with the MOST RECENT PINFALL at the end of the allotted time will be declared the WINNER and will receive a NUMBER ONE CONTENDERSHIP SPOT!”
(All nine men are already in the ring, taking in the cheers from the crowd. Alonzo Calrissian sits on the top turnbuckle, surveying the other combatants. Maero and Solomon Caine talk shop in their taken corner. JD Damon simply stares as Ahren Fournier talks his ear off. World’s Most Wanted jaw away at Mike Showman and Jon McAdams as…)
(DING DING DING!)
WWEFan: This match has started!! World’s Most Wanted are squaring off with Showman and McAdams! Maero and Solomon Caine brawl with the surprise pairing of Damon and Fournier! WMW double whip McAdams and Showman, who go to lariat Damon and Fournier…
Kawajai: THEY DUCK!! Jon and Mike instead lariat Maero and Caine out of the ring!!! Hey! They got SOMETHING! Jon and Mike turn around…and eat DROPKICKS from J.D. Damon and Ahren Fournier, sending THEM out of the ring!! Damon and Ahren stand and glare at each other…
WWEFan: And are clotheslined out of the ring by the WMW! Noxx and DeLion cheer for themselves…AND ARE DUMPED OVER THE TOP ROPE BY ALONZO CALRISSIAN!! Where did HE come from?!?
Kawajai: Eight of the Nine men are on the outside…Alonzo, the only man left in the ring…and he takes off towards the opposite ropes!! Alonzo rebounds…the other eight haven’t noticed…and the Milennial Falcon…FLIES!!!
WWEFan: TOPE COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! ALL NINE MEN ARE DOWN!!! Wait…no, Maero and Damon somehow got out of the way! Both men slide into the ring, and notice each other at the same time. Damon rises, looking for a slap, but Maero ducks underneath. Damon goes for a backhand, and again, Maero ducks, but Damon shuffles back…EPIC KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK!!!!!
Kawajai: NO!! Maero just barely dodged out of the way…WAIST LOCK FROM MAERO…LIFTS…But DAMON rolls forward and underneath, dragging Maero down into a PIN! ONE! TWO!!
WWEFan: …NO!! Maero kicks out and scrambles to his feet, hitting the ropes as Damon rises up and turns…
Kawajai: MAERO TRANSPLANT!!! MAERO TRANSPLANT KNEE!!! J.D. DAMON IS OUT COLD!!!! MAERO SCRAMBLES IN FOR A PIN!
Referee: ONEEEE!! TWWWOOO!! THRREEEEE!!!!
Announcer: “Victor Maero is the CURRENT Top Prospect with a Pinfall.”
WWEFan: Alright! Now he just has to defend that for the next….ten minutes?
Kawajai: Possibly less! Remember, fans, it doesn’t matter how many pinfalls you have or how long you have one for…the person with the MOST RECENT PIN at the end of fifteen minutes will be our Top Prospect Winner.
WWEFan: Danny Noxx and Jakob DeLion are brawling outside the ring with Solomon Caine, who has picked up a chair…No DQ here, fans…and…WAILS AWAY ON DANNY NOXX!!
Kawajai: NIGHTY NIGHT!
WWEFan: Caine rears back…and SWINGS AT JAKOB…BUT DELION DUCKS!! JAKOB rolls behind Solomon and shoots back to his feet…but Caine turns and swings wildly with the chair…AND CONNECTS UPSIDE JAKOB DELIONS HEAD…SOLOMON CAINE IS AN ABSOLUTE PSYCHOPATH!!
Kawajai: Keep your eyes on Mike Showman! Eyes on Mike Showman!
WWEFan: MIKE SHOWMAN HIT A HUUUUUUUGE SOMERSAULT SENTON OFF THE APRON ONTO SOLOMON CAINE!! WOW!! And Maero and Jon McAdams are going at it in the middle of the ring!! Hold on…Up on the top…It’s Alonzo Calrissian!!…Maero slaps the taste out of Jon’s mouth, and turns…ALONZO OFF THE TOP!!
Kawajai: PUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNCH IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!!!!
WWEFan: TOP ROPE SUPERMAN PUNCH FROM ALONZO CALRISSIAN LANDS SQUARE ACROSS THE JAW OF MAEROQ!! THE MAD SURGEON MIGHT BE OUT COLD…AND MCADAMS OUT OF NOWHERE, SHOVES THE UNEXPECTING CALRISSIAN OUT OF THE RING!! MCADAMS ROLLS UP MAERO IN A CLASSIC BOW AND ARROW PIN!!
Referee: ONE!! TWO!!!! THREE!!!
Announcer: “Jon McAdams is the CURRENT Top Prospect with a pinfall.”
WWEFan: I don’t believe it!! Jon McAdams, while not a very gentlemanly move, it was DEFINITELY the smarter one! Meanwhile, back on the outside…I can’t really see…it looks like Danny Noxx and Jakob DeLion are…what are they…they’re setting up a TABLE on the outside! Solomon Caine and Mike Showman are nearby them, brawling around ringside…Solomon Caine reverses an irish whip into the apron…and simply THROWS Mike Showman into the barricade!! What a THUD!! Noxx and DeLion, however, looking for some payback…Noxx grabs Caine by the back of his shorts…and DRIVES him shoulder first into the steel steps, knocking them away from the ring post!! BRUTAL!!
Kawajai: Jon McAdams and Maero, meanwhile, are duking it out in the ring…Maero hits a HARD chop…and it is reciprocated by McAdams!! Maero inhales sharply to work past the pain…and hits ANOTHER hard chop…but MCADAMS FIRES BACK IMMEDIATELY with a hard chop of his own! Both men’s chest are beet red!! Maero rears back for another chop…BLOCKED by McAdams, who holds on to the arm…and goes for a JUDO THROW…
WWEFan: BUT MAERO FLIPS OUT OF IT AND JUMPS INTO THE AIR…ENZIGURI!! McAdams is on wobbly legs here…Maero regains his bearings…AND LEAPS…PULSE CHECK!! MUSHROOM STOMP OUT OF NOWHERE!! MAERO CRUMBLES DOWN INTO A PIN!! LOOKING TO REGAIN HIS INTERIM WINNER POSITION!
Referee: ONE!! TWO!!!! THR —
WWEFan: NOOO!! NOO! J.D. DAMON BARELY BREAKS IT UP IN TIME!!! WOW!! THAT WAS CLOSE!!!
Kawajai: Hold on, World’s Most Wanted have Solomon Caine set up for something…they have him standing and leaning against the ring post…hold on, both men back up…and smile to each other…THEY BOTH SPIN…SANDWICH DEATH BY ELBO-
WWEFan: NO!! NO!! SOLOMON CAINE DUCKS AT THE LAST SECOND!! NOXX AND DELION BOTH HIT THE SOLID STEEL RING POST WITH A RESOUNDING CLANG!! BOTH MEN SCREAM IN PAIN…MIKE SHOWMAN!! ALONZO CALRISSIAN!! BOTH MEN HAVE WORLD’S MOST WANTED IN WAIST LOCKS…STEREO! GERMAN! SUUUUUUPLEXES! ON THE OUTSIDE!!! UN! BE! LEEEEEEVABULL!!
Kawajai: This match is too insane, I don’t know what to call over here…back in the ring, J.D. Damon and Maero…I can’t believe I’m saying this, but they’re working together on Jon McAdams…hold on…head count…McAdams is getting beaten by Damon and Maero…
WWEFan: That’s three…
Kawajai: Alonzo and Showman took out World’s Most Wanted, and Solomon Caine is trying to pop his shoulder back into place.
WWEFan: That’s five…
Kawajai: …Where’s Fournier?
Ahren Fournier (at the announcer’s table): Sup.
WWEFan: WHAT THE HELL?!?! WHEN DID YOU GET HERE?!?
Kawajai: YOU’RE A NINJA OR SOMETHING!!
Ahren Fournier: Pretty much…or a pirate or whatever…I’m taking a much deserved break, letting the clock run out, while these pickle juice drinkers beat each other senseless to get useless pinfalls.
WWEFan: I must admit, that’s a really smart idea…Anyway, back in the ring…
Ahren Fournier: I’ll take care of this: Jon McAdams is taking a drubbing from J.D. Damon and Maero!
WWEFan: A Drubbing?
Ahren Fournier: Yup. I either made it up or it’s an old word. Either way, it’s mine, it’s trending, and it’s awesome.
WWEFan: WILL YOU STOP!?! Anyway…Ok, Maero and Solomon Caine are standing side by side…Mike Showman and Jon McAdams are in their corner…Alonzo Calrissian and J.D. Damon, shockingly…Alonzo makes the first move and rushes in…BUT DAMON GRABS FOR A WAIST LOCK ON HIM…GERMAN SUPLEX INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!! ALONZO IS DEAD! REST IN PEACE ALONZO!! Alonzo instinctively rolls out of the ring, as Damon scrambles to catch him…Damon finally stands…and turns….RIGHT INTO A LEAPING DDT FROM MIKE SHOWMAN!!! DAMON’S FOREHEAD JUST GOT DRILLED INTO THE MAT! MIKE COVERS AS FAST AS HE CAN!
Referee: ONEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOO!!! THREEEEEE!!!!
Announcer: “Mike Showman is now our CURRENT Top Prospect with a pinfall!”
Kawajai: MIKE JUST PINNED J.D DAMON AND OUT OF THE RING HE GOES!! MIKE JUST TOOK THE SPOT FROM HIS PARTNER MCADAMS BUT IT SEEMS THE TWO JUST WANT TO WALK AWAY WITH THE SPOT NO MATTER WHO IT IS! IT’S MAERO, MIKE SHOWMAN, JON MCADAMS, AND SOLOMON CAINE LEFT STANDING, AND WE ONLY HAVE A FEW MINUTES LEFT!!! Maero and Caine whisper strategies to each other as Mike and Jon do the same…AND BOTH TEAMS CHARGE AT THE SAME TIME!! Maero spears down Jon McAdams, and Caine and Showman resume their brawls from before!! Showman and Caine battle into the corner, Caine delivering VICIOUS forearms to the forehead of Mike, who does his best to block…Caine drives his knee into Mike’s ribs, buckling the young man over…AND A HARD CHOP STANDS HIM BACK UP!! Caine smiles wickedly as he looks out at the jeering fans…he steps back slightly, rears back…AND LIGHTS UP MIKE’S CHEST AGAIN!! Solomon smiles again and lifts Mike up…setting him up on the top turnbuckle…what’s he planning here…
Ahren Fournier: Something dumb.
Kawajai: CLASSIC Ahren Fournier!
Ahren Fournier: WHO. ARE. YOU? Will you stop looking at me so much?!
WWEFan: …Ok…Solomon sends a hard slap to the face of Mike Showman, trying to disorient him further…Maero and McAdams are trading HARD forearms in the middle of the ring…Solomon slowly climbs up to the second turnbuckle…he hooks Mike’s head…AND SOLOMON CAINE STEPS UP TO THE VERY TOP!! HE’S LOOKING FOR A HUGE SUPERPLEX!!!
Kawajai: They need to be careful of that table out there…
Ahren Fournier: Yes…yes they do…Excuse m-
WWEFan: Well…Ahren Fournier is making his way to the ring…he slides in; Maero and McAdams haven’t noticed…AND HE RUSHES CAINE AND MIKE SHOWMAN, SHOVING THEM BOTH OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!! THEY CRASH THROUGH THE TABLE AND HIT THE MATS HARD!! AHREN FOURNIER PICKED HIS SPOT PERFECTLY!!!
Kawajai: He’s just the best…isn’t he? He is.
WWEFan: MIKE SHOWMAN AND SOLOMON CAINE ARE OUT!! MAERO AND JON MCADAMS ARE STUNNED!! HELL, AHREN IS STUNNED!!! THAT WAS HORRIFIC!!!
Kawajai: WATCH AHREN!!
WWEFan: Ahren RUSHES IN…PROTECT YA NECK TO JON MCADAMS!!! JON MCADAMS WAS FOLDED UP LIKE AN ACCORDION!!!
Announcer: “THIRTY SECONDS REMAIN…MIKE SHOWMAN HAS THE MOST RECENT PINFALL…”
WWEFan: AHREN FOURNIER AND MAERO ARE THE ONLY TWO LEFT STANDING!!! MAERO RUSHES IN!!!! LEAPS FOR A PULSE CHECK…AHREN ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY…AHREN ON A KNEE…SUPERKICK TO THE KNEELING AHREN FOURNIER….
Kawajai: MAERO TRANSPLANT!!! MAERO TRANSPLANT!! HARD KNEE TO THE SIDE OF AHREN’S PERFECT HEAD!!! MAERO DIVES IN FOR A COVER!!!
Referee: ONE!!! TWO!!!! THRRRR –
WWEFan: NOOO!!! AHREN KICKED OUT!!! AHREN SOMEHOW KICKED OUT!!! MAERO IS BESIDE HIMSELF…AND AHREN IS SOMEHOW RISING TO HIS FEET!! HE MUST BE IN SHOCK OR SOMETHING…HERE COMES MAERO, LOOKING FOR ANOTHER MAERO TRANSPLANT…NO!!!
Kawajai: AHREN SOMEHOW GOT OUT OF THE WAY!! MAERO TURNS!! AND IS CAUGHT WITH A SNAP BRAINBUSTER!!! AHREN FALLS INTO THE COVER…
WWEFan: BUT IT’S REVERSED BY MAERO INTO A CRUCIFIX PIN!!! INSTINCT!!! INSTINCT OF MAERO MIGHT GET HIM THE WIN HERE!!!!

WWEFan: MAERO RUNS IN FOR ANOTHER MAERO TRANSPLANT!! AHREN ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!! MAERO RUNS KNEE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!
Kawajai: MAERO BACKS OUT…AHREN IS UP AND HITS THE ROPES…
WWEFan: MAERO SPINS AROUND…
WWEFan: PROTECT YA NECK BY AHREN FOURNIER!!
WWEFan: WAIT!!! MAERO FLIPS HIM OVER!!! HE’S GOT AREN! STACKED UP!!
(The referee begins his count in unison with the announcer.)
THREE!!!!!!! / “ONE!”
Kawajai: THE TIME IS OUT, MAERO HAS DONE IT!
(DING DING DING!!!)
(“Burn It Down” by Skillet plays as Maero slides out of the ring with Ahren giving chase, stopping at the bottom of the rope as he lets out a shout.)
Announcer: “LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE MOST RECENT PINFALL….AND YOUR TOP PROSPECT WINNER….MAERRROOOOOOO!!!!”
WWEFan: MAERO’S GOT THE WIN! MAERO COMES UP FROM BEHIND AND IS NOW OUR TOP PROSPECT! Maero has been through all sorts of battle royals, scrambles and open invitationals, but has always come up short. Tonight changes that. TONIGHT HE HAS EARNED HIMSELF A CHAMPIONSHIP OPPORTUNITY!
(The fans clap for all of the men involved, leading in chants of “That Was Awesome”.)
Kawajai: The fans are right, that was awesome! Big ups to his opponents there! Ahren, Caine, PWC, WMW, those guys killed it! If I was Carlos I’d give them all shots!
WWEFan: I’m sure they’ll find their way to championship contention somehow if they keep performing like that but for now it’s Maero’s night! Again, congratulations to him!
Ahren Fournier: No…no….that was mine! THAT WAS MY MATCH TO WIN! GOD DAMN IT!
(Ahren kicks the rope and pulls at his hair in frustration as we fade away from ringside.)
(Advertisement: Don’t forget to check out Thursday Night Empire on PBS! Right Before Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood and Sesame Street! Warning: Viewers Discretion is Advised.)
(A promo package airs chronicling the conflict between Nasir Capitani and Carlos Rosso, starting from their initial encounter where Nasir attacked Carlos followed up by the news of his suspension and the protests that would happen soon after. Nasir would convince HRDO to bring him back but on his first week after suspension Carlos would challenge him to a Blackout match, taking us here to tonight.)
(Video package plays highlighting the war of words between Carlos Rosso and Nasir Capitani over the past two months. It shows Nas interrupting the EAW Championship match between Aren Mstislav and Y2Impact in October, being suspended, and almost fired before HRDO intervened. It shows Nasir Capitani goading Carlos into returning and a series of Nasir Capitani matches he’s had on Voltage and came out victorious in. Finally, it shows Carlos Rosso’s last match to date at PFP where he lost the CWF World Championship, then a graphic of the two men staring face to face. The camera then pans to ringside)
Ring Announcer: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!!
WWEFan I’ve got a feeling this is going to be ugly. That sawed-off midget Nasir Capitani doesn’t know WHAT he’s getting into!
Kawajai: You act like just because Rosso is the more accomplished name that it means he’s definitely going to win. Rosso went out in shame at Pain for Pride. It took the EAW Champion a low blow to stave off Capitani from taking his title. Don’t underestimate him.
(“Money, Power, Respect” by The LOX hits as Carlos Rosso makes his way down to the ring in his wrestling trunks with a confident smirk on his face and a microphone in his hand)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, weighing in at 211 pounds… He is the General Manager of Voltage… CARLOSSSS ROSSSOOOOOO!!!!!
Kawajai: Now, why would Carlos have a microphone when he’s competing in a match…?
(Rosso walks up the steel steps and into the ring, smirking at the crowd as he holds the microphone up to his face)
Carlos Rosso: You didn’t think I’d come empty-handed, did you? Nah, nah. As the Voltage General Manager… I’m a protected asset. If Nasir Capitani’s going to get to me, he’s going to have to get through…. THESE guys!
(“World on Fire” by Slash hits as Jakob DeLion and Danny Knoxx come out high-fiving each other and grinning, walking down the ramp and into the ring where they stand in front of Rosso. Rosso holds the microphone up to his face once again as their music dies down)
Carlos Rosso: I got one of the hottest new tag teams out on my side! So come down here, Nasir, come on down. See what’s up.
(The crowd is driven silent for a moment. No theme music plays)
Carlos: Yeah, I thought so. Come on, boys, let’s go… I declare this a win for me by forfeit.
(“Man of the Year” by Schoolboy Q hits as the crowd responds with a deafening reaction for Nasir Capitani. Capitani seems subdued, however, walking to the ring with a microphone himself, halting mid-way at the ramp and scratching his chin…)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Atlantic City, New Jersey, weighing in at 200 pounds… NASIRRRR CAPITANIII!!!!!
(The music dies down as Nasir holds up the microphone to his face)
Nas: Yeah. I’m outnumbered tonight, aren’t I guys? Carlos Rosso and his goons Jakob and Knoxx… Tonight’s just not going to be my night is it?
(Rosso looks back at Nasir, laughing with Knoxx and Jakob)
Rosso: Run on home. You know you want to.
(Nasir tilts his head both ways)
Nasir: Actually, Rosso, I thought about it building up to Shock Value. I knew you’d have an ace up your sleeve. I mean, you weren’t really going to face me, were you? We all know who’d win that battle. You’re out of shape. You can’t handle the heat you dish out. You should have fired me when you had the chance. And Knoxx, DeLion, boy have I got something for you…. WHAT’S POPPIN THO?!
(Coming out to no music, The People with Class Mike Showman and Jon McAdams walk down behind Nasir Capitani. Carlos Rosso’s jaw drops in surprise. Knoxx and Jakob look nervous)
Nasir: That ain’t it. I rented some more. Come on out here…
(Out of the curtain comes Solomon Caine and Maero of The Sanatorium. Carlos Rosso is livid)
Rosso: You can’t do this! I’m the General Manager!
(Nas smiles back at Rosso)
Nas: I guess my pockets are deeper than your pockets, eh Carlos? Get ‘em, boys.
(Solomon, Maero, Mike, and McAdams all storm down to the outside of the ring as Knoxx and Jakob DeLion try to escape over the barricade, but are unable to as they’re caught by the four)
Kawajai: Solomon and Maero have Jakob trapped, and on the other end McAdams and Showman have Knoxx! CLOTHESLINE OVER THE BARRICADE ON KNOXX, AND NOW MAERO HOLDS JAKOB BY THE ARMS! BIG BOOT ON JAKOB DELION BY SOLOMON CAINE! CARLOS ROSSO’S PLANS ARE NOT WORKING OUT WELL!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
WWEFan: And the match is SOMEHOW just now officially underway! Nasir charges into the ring and Carlos tries to defend himself, holding his forearms up to negate the force of Nasir Capitani’s shots, but Capitani is unloading on Rosso. Rosso is backed into the corner turnbuckles and Nasir isn’t letting up, slamming his boot in the throat of Carlos Rosso! The referee is trying to force Nas to break it as Carlos has grabbed hold of the ropes…
Ref: One! Two! Three! Four!
Kawajai: And Capitani breaks the hold! Captain forces Rosso back up to his feet and positions him in the middle of the ring, now irish whipping him off the Ropes, but Rosso ducks. Rosso on the rebound slingshots himself at Capitani for a shoulder block, but Capitani sidesteps the attempted shoulder block and connects with a Russian Legsweep on Rosso!
WWEFan: Capitani is FAR from finished as he goes for the legs of Rosso. He’s looking to apply some sort of submission. IT’S THE AFFIRMATIVE ACTION! THE SHARPSHOOTER IS APPLIED TO CARLOS ROSSO AS JAKOB AND KNOXX ARE BEING MAULED BY THE SANATORIUM AND THE PEOPLE WITH CLASS IN THE CROWD! WE DON’T KNOW WHERE IT’S BROKEN OUT TO AT THIS POINT!
Kawajai: The referee is asking Rosso if he wants to tap, and he’s trying to drag himself over the ropes to secure a break, but he’s not ANYWHERE near the ropes! The crowd is chanting Nasir Capitani’s name, they want to see Carlos Rosso tap out, and he’s waving his arm in the air… WILL ROSSO TAP?!
Kawajai: ROSSO TAPS! ROSSO TAPS OUT! WOW! NASIR CAPITANI JUST DISMANTLED ROSSO AND THWARTED HIS CORRUPT PLAN TO STIFLE CAPITANI’S CHANCES!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Man of the Year” by Schoolboy Q hits as the referee raises Nasir’s arm in victory. Carlos rolls out of the ring and is shouting obscenities everywhere as he lays on his back, holding his legs in pain…)
Ring Announcer: The winner of this match by submission… NASIRRRR CAPITANIIII!!!!!!
Kawajai: Wow. I thought Capitani had a chance, but even I didn’t expect this! What an amazing performance by Cappitani. And to hire The Sanatorium and The People with Class just in case Carlos pulled the shenanigans he did? Ingenious forward-thinking!
WWEFan: There’s no denying Capitani was incredibly proactive, but I would have thought Carlos on his own would have put up more of a fight. I guess when his plan didn’t go as, you know, plan… He unraveled.
(Captain walks back up the ramp as his theme music blares. The Sanatorium, PwC, and World’s Most Wanted are now out of sight in their brawl…)
(Camera pans backstage where …Y2Impact is tightening the laces on his boots. Y2Impact walks out of his locker room only to bet by interviewer Flannery McCoy)
Y2Impact: What do you want?
Flannery: Well, you have a major match tonight for the EAW Championship. I was wondering what your thoughts were on Matt Miles outing himself as Judas?
Y2Impact: Hey, look, it doesn’t matter to me if he comes down to the ring in a mask. Some people do the strangest things to become comfortable in their own skin. If I walked out their in a tribal headdress, will I look more intimidating? Maybe to some, but more than likely I’d look like a jackass. Whether you wear a mask or you paint your face like Aren Mstislav and take on an alter ego, that doesn’t change your ability inside that ring. Y2Impact and The Machine are one in the same. I don’t need to hide behind a mask to be successful. And you know what else? I don’t need anybody following behind me just to hold my bags. Aren Mstislav has been the EAW Champion for well over six months. Tonight, his reign ends and another begins.
Flannery: Matt Miles seems to think it’s his reign that will begin, bu-
Y2Impact: Thinking and knowing. You have to understand the difference between the two. Matt Miles and Aren Mstislav THINK they’re going to walk out as EAW Champion. I know I am.
(Impact storms off, after which Flannery shrugs and the camera pans out)
(Video package plays highlighting the war of words between Drastik and Hardcore Champion Nathan Fiora, showing Drastik’s return, Fiora’s shock, and Rebecca Sawyer being laid out in the ring by Drastik on Voltage)
Ring Announcer: The following match is scheduled under Hardcore Championship rules and is set for one fall… And is FOR THE HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!
(“Sail” by AWOLNation hits as Drastik walks down the ring to a deafening reception from the crowd who chant “SAIL” as he enters the ring)
Kawajai: Drastik is a man on a mission. Don’t sleep on him.
WWEFan: I think for Drastik’s sake, he had better not sleep on Nathan Fiora. Fiora is a guy who can surprise and may just beat Drastik. Might not even be a surprise.
(“LONE (feat. JOY.)” by What So Not x Ganz hits as Nathan Fiora walks down the ring, strutting cockily with Preacher Jamal walking right behind him and the Hardcore Championship around his waist. Fiora looks at Drastik who doesn’t take his sights off Fiora for a moment. Fiora walks into the ring, the referee holds up the Hardcore Championship, and the title is then handed to the timekeeper’s area)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Chicago, Illinois, weighing in at 218 pounds… He is the HARDCORE CHAMPION…. NATHAN FIORRAAAAA!!!!!!!
WWEFan: Fiora shouldn’t be taking lightly. He’s the Hardcore Champion for a reason, damn it. He beat multiple other guys to win that title!
Kawajai: But you’ve got to realize that he isn’t facing just any guy. He’s facing Drastik!
WWEFan: So what?! Fiora is going to win!
Kawajai: You said it, not me.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Kawajai: This Hardcore throwdown is underway as Drastik looks eager to square up with Nathan Fiora, but Fiora himself doesn’t seem in any kind of rush whatsoever to lock up with Drastik! Again, while Nathan Fiora does have Preacher Jamal at ringside, Rebecca Sawyer isn’t here because she’s still tending to injuries given to her by Drastik! Nathan Fiora now looks about ready to tie up with Drastik, and the two are going to get into it, but Fiora once again recoils, backing away from Drastik. Fiora turns his back on Drastik for a moment here, and now Drastik dashes forward at Fiora! AND FIORA RETALIATES WITH A PUNCH! DRASTIK IS LAID OUT! FIORA HAD SOME KIND OF CONCEALED WEAPON IN HIS HAND! BRASS KNUCKLES! FIORA JUST PULLED A FAST ONE ON DRASTIK, CONCEALING THOSE BRASS KNUCKLES AND PUTTING THEM ON WHILE DRASTIK’S BACK WAS TURNED. FIORA SMILES AND SHOUTS “STILL HARDCORE CHAMPION!” AS HE GOES FOR THE PIN ON DRASTIK, HOOKING THE LEG!!!
Ref: ONEEEEEEE… TWOOOOOOOO…. THRRRR—
WWEFan: DRASTIK SOMEHOW KICKS OUT! Nathan Fiora thought he had Drastik, but this is a guy who has been through so many Hardcore matches in his career here, he’s conditioned to be able to kick out in spots like that! His experience and physical conditioning just did him an excellent service as he manages to get a shoulder up. Lesser men would be down and out! Nathan Fiora is shocked now, but Preacher Jamal is searching under the ring for him, and hands him the lid of a trashcan! Drastik tries to rise to his feet but you can tell he’s still groggy, and Fiora BASHES Drastik over the skull with that trashcan lid! Fiora throws the lid out of the ring and he’s asking Preacher Jamal for something else. Preacher Jamal looks under the ring again, and he’s handing Nathan Fiora something… What could be inside the bag?!
Kawajai: Nathan Fiora pours out the contents of the bag, AND IT’S A BAG FULL OF THUMBTACKS! THE HARDCORE CHAMPION — TRUE TO HIS TITLE — SCATTERS THE THUMBTACKS EVERYWHERE INSIDE THE RING, AND THIS ISN’T LOOKING GOOD FOR DRASTIK! FIORA MAY NOT HAVE HAD THE EARLY FALL, BUT THINGS ARE LOOKING GRIM FOR THE FORMER FIVE-TIME WORLD CHAMPION NOW!
WWEFan: Fiora may be wasting too much time if you ask me. He’s just cavalierly walking around the ring like the match isn’t important, as if he has Drastik in the palm of his hand. Fiora may have Drastik right where he wants him, but if he doesn’t execute soon this could all go awry for Fiora!
Kawajai: The thumbtacks are scattered about everywhere, and a dazed Drastik now finally manages to get back up to his feet. Fiora is just smirking at him, as if he’s not even important. Fiora is disrespecting this man tonight, not just as a wrestler, but his legacy, everything he’s carved out for himself in EAW! Fiora’s got Drastik positioned in the middle of that ring, hooked in, and now he’s going for the Powerbomb! Drastik is hoisted up in the air, BUT A TWEAK TO THE EYE OF FIORA BY DRASTIK RIGHT AS HE WAS ABOUT TO POWERBOMB HIM INTO HUNDREDS UPON THOUSANDS OF THUMBTACKS! DRASTIK LANDS ON HIS FEET, REGAINING A VERTICAL BASE, AND NOW HE SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES AS FIORA IS UNABLE TO REGAIN HIS SIGHT — AND A ROUNDHOUSE KICK FROM DRASTIK SENDS FIORA FLYING BACKWARDS, BUT HE’S NOT QUITE OFF HIS FEET YET!
WWEFan: AND FIORA’S MOMENTUM TAKES HIM BACKWARD! HE FALLS DOWN AND LANDS IN A BED OF THUMBTACKS, SCREAMING IN AGONY AS HE’S BEEN TURNED INTO A HUMAN PIN CUSHION! DRASTIK WITH A STATEMENT HERE THAT HE ISN’T TO BE TAKEN LIGHTLY! THE CROWD IS CHANTING “SAIL” AS DRASTIK PLAYS TO THE CROWD, SIGNALING HIS ARMS IN EACH DIRECTION AS THE CROWD RHYTHMICALLY CHANTS “SAIL” WHEN HE TELLS THEM TO!
WWEFan: Aren’t you supposed to be nonpartisan? True bias being shown from you, Kawajai!
Kawajai: Like you’re one to talk, Mr. Fiora Faithful.
WWEFan: Nathan Fiora certainly isn’t having any fun right now as he holds his back in pain, thumbtacks still stuck in his back, blood trickling down it as his associate Preacher Jamal looks on in horror. Drastik is laughing in Preacher Jamal’s face, but I have to wonder why he isn’t going for the pin here? Nathan Fiora has been completely subdued, but instead Drastik is going over to the ropes! Could Drastik be going for that Stigmata Corkscrew Moonsault he’s made famous?
Kawajai: And now Preacher Jamal is trying to interfere! Preacher Jamal has hooked Drastik’s right leg and taken him to the outside of the ring! PREACHER JAMAL WITH A CLOTHESLINE! NO! ELBOW TO THE FACE OF PREACHER JAMAL BY DRASTIK, AND NOW DRASTIK IS GETTING SOMETHING OUT OF HIS TIGHTS… ITS A PACKET OF SALT! DRASTIK QUICKLY TEARS THE SALT PACKET OPEN AND THROWS IT IN PREACHER JAMAL’S EYES, BLINDING JAMAL! WOW, YOU GOTTA THINK MAYBE DRASTIK WAS SAVING THAT FOR STEAK AND MASHED POTATO DINNER LATER, BUT TALK ABOUT RESOURCEFUL!
WWEFan: Oh yeah, like you really expect me to believe that scoundrel Drastik wasn’t planning to do something so diabolical all along!
Kawajai: Once again, not seeming very nonpartisan here.
WWEFan: Fiora’s going to make Drastik pay for that, I can sense it in my veins.
Kawajai: Drastik goes over to the blinded Jamal who staggers back and repeatedly pounds his fists into Jamal’s face! Nathan is still laying around the ring trying to pull all those thumbtacks out of his back, and now Drastik is trying to take Fiora out from within, first it was Rebecca Sawyer and now it seems to be Preacher Jamal that he’s set his sights on! Drastik looks underneath the ring now and he pulls out a steel chair! Preacher Jamal has absolutely no idea where he is right now. He’s vision-impaired, and turns around into no man’s land… AND IS MET BY A CHAIRSHOT TO THE HEAD FROM DRASTIK! WOW! PREACHER JAMAL IS GOING TO BE HEARING BIRDIES IN HIS HEAD FOR A WHILE AFTER TAKING THAT CHAIRSHOT RIGHT TO THE TEMPLE!
WWEFan: Drastik has effectively taken Preacher Jamal out of the equation. Drastik now goes to walk back into the ring, he’s up on the ring apron, and Nathan Fiora with a headbutt to the midsection as Drastik tried to get back in the ring! Fiora’s competing with thumbtacks stuck in his back! Whether you like or hate the guy, you have to admire the determination and toughness it takes to do that!
Kawajai: You can see Fiora is in pain, but he’s trying to fight through it as he now darts off the ropes and tries to spear Drastik off the ring apron! BUT DRASTIK SIDESTEPS THE SPEAR ATTEMPT AND CONNECTS WITH A KNEE INTO THE MOUTH OF NATHAN FIORA! Drastik hops back down outside the ring and looks underneath the ring once again, this time finding… A TABLE!
WWEFan: But Drastik isn’t done searching, what else does he have? LIGHTER FLUID! DRASTIK HAS LIGHTER FLUID AND A TABLE, AND HE NOW THROWS THE TABLE INSIDE THE RING… DON’T DO IT, DRASTIK! HAVE SOME HUMANITY!
Kawajai: Nathan Fiora is laid out on the mat after taking that knee shot to the face, thumbtacks still all up in his back, blood streaming everywhere on his body. Drastik douses the table with lighter fluid, and he’s thinking something big here! DRASTIK HAS A MATCH AND HE LIGHTS THE TABLE ON FIRE! DRASTIK NOW HAS FIORA UP, THE TABLE IS FULL OF FLAMES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, AND NATHAN FIORA CAN’T POSSIBLY KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT BEHIND HIM, BUT HE’S GOT TO BE FEELING THE HEAT! GET OUT OF THE WAY, NATHAN, GO OUT OF THE RING! SOMETHING!
WWEFan: DRASTIK GRABS NATHAN FIORA’S ARM, WHIPS HIM OFF THE ROPES… BACK BODY DROP! BACK BODY DROP ONTO THE FLAMING TABLE! OH MY GOD! NATHAN FIORA IS CLUTCHING HIS BACK, HE’S SUFFERED BURNS OF ALL KINDS… WOW! I CAN BARELY OPEN MY EYES!
Kawajai: The ring assistants are quickly hose the fire down with fire extinguishers, but Nathan Fiora has been COOKED! Preacher Jamal doesn’t know what happened to his friend Fiora, and Rebecca Sawyer has to be watching from a hospital praying for Fiora’s health. Drastik now goes up to the top rope as Fiora lays motionlessly in the middle of the ring, looking like he’s almost dead… THE STIGMATA CORKSCREW MOONSAULT! IT CONNECTS! AND THE COVER!
Ref: ONEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOO…. THRRRRR——
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Sail” by AWOLNation hits as Drastik’s arm is raised by the referee, followed by him being handed the Hardcore Championship from the timekeeper’s section)
Ring Announcer: Your winner… and NEWWWW EAW HARDCORE CHAMPION….. DRASTIKKKKK!
Kawajai: Drastik pulled it out. He is the new Hardcore Champion, but frankly? I’m more worried about the health of Nathan Fiora than anything else.
WWEFan: Don’t doubt for a second that Nathan Fiora WILL come back from this. We’re talking about a guy who could potentially shine in the main events. Drastik may have had tonight, but Fiora WILL rebound!
Kawajai: Fiora just needs to get healthy. Congrats to Drastik, though!
(Drastik walks to the back with his newly won Hardcore Championship, playing to the crowd along the way as they cheer for him. EMTs come to ringside to drag Nathan Fiora to the back on a stretcher and give him medical assistance…)
(Advertisement: Road to Redemption 10 LIVE! December 17th, From the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana! Watch as EAW closes out an eventful year with the return of the demonic structure; The Elimination Chamber!)
(DING DING DING!!)
Announcer: “Ladies and Gentlemen…the following contest…is scheduled for ONE FALL! And is a HIGH VOLTAGE MATCH!!!”
(The lights dim to pitch black…a very harsh bright white light shines from behind the curtain…)
“The other night…dear…as I lay sleeeee-ping”
(The all-too-familiar opening words whisper throughout the arena. Several men in cloaks step through the curtain…before Eclipse Diemos follows behind them, wearing a black robe and skull face paint. In his right hand is a wooden staff with Elk horns tied to the top. The fans stay respectfully silent as the cloaked men remove the robes from Eclipse, revealing his horrifyingly detailed face paint.)
Announcer: “Introducing first…from Prescott Hills Sanatorium in Arizona…weighing in at 286 pounds….representing the SANATORIUM….he is FEAR. IIIIIIINCARNATE….ECLIPSE….DIIEEEEEEMOS!!!”
WWEFan: Eclipse Diemos is here tonight to compete in his first singles match for Voltage since weeks prior to Pain For Pride! For a while it seems Eclipse has abstained from competing, having preferred to send his Sanitorium brethren in to fight the good fight but now he’s here tonight as the last line of defense to complete his mission: that mission being to break Zack Crash.
(The music stops…and the lights flicker on and off…before “Mafioso” by Mac Dre strikes up, and the arena e-RUPTS in boos. A large curtain on the side of the ramp opens slowly, revealing a loooooooooooong, long stretch limo…the driver steps out and begins his long walk to the back door…He finally reaches the door and opens it…first, a beautiful Asian girl steps out…then a gorgeous black woman…then twin latinas…then a meh white girl…followed by three hot Puerto Rican girls…and finally…The Kingpin Zack Crash.)
Announcer: “AND HIS OPPONENT…from CHARLESTON, WEST VIRGINIA…WEIGHING IN AT 225 POUNDS…..HE IS THE KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINGPIN….ZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK…..CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASH!!!!!”
Kawajai: It’s still crazy to think Zack Crash is back here on Voltage. It’s been about a month and it’s still hard to get used to, not just for us as viewers but for Zack Crash as well. He went from being a true Kingpin to being all by himself here on Voltage, something Eclipse has tried to take advantage of. Eclipse Diemos wants to “break” Zack Crash and force him to bend to his will as a show of his genius and the strength of Sanitorium, something Crash refuses to let happen. He is a man who wants to stand on his own two feet and plans on continuing to do so, looking to defeat Eclipse Diemos and end this nightmare so that he can really begin his new Voltage career.
(Zack Crash follows the gaggle of ladies down to the ring, admiring the view while he has the chance. Eclipse, in contrast, stands alone in the middle of the ring. Stoic, expressionless, unimpressed. Zack slowly climbs up the steps and through the ropes, finally turning his attention to Eclipse. His mood immediately shifts to a combination of fear and rage…)
WWEFan: …and the cage is beginning to lower…our referee, George Caulk, showing his bravery by standing between these two…Eclipse, a blank slate, and Crash, extremely expressive…these two couldn’t be more different…
Kawajai: But the one thing that links them is the pursuit of POWER, and as long as the OTHER ONE is in the way, neither of these guys can reach the level they feel they deserve.
WWEFan: The cage, now completely surrounding the ring…our referees on the outside, locking it to the ring posts…They back away…and with a HUGE spark, the cage has become electrified! You have to think that reality must be setting in for both of these guys right now…
(DING DING DING!)
WWEFan: AND HERE WE GO!! Both men, standing in their respective corners…just watching the other…neither man wants to make an unnecessary mistake here…there are very REAL consequences for mistakes in this match…Eclipse makes the first move…stepping slowly out into the middle of the ring…Zack Crash slowly joins him…
Kawajai: AND CRASH SLAPS ECLIPSE ACROSS THE FACE!! He might have knocked that face paint CLEAN OFF…Eclipse holds his head in the position…he might be frozen in shock from the brazenness…
WWEFan: AND ECLIPSE SHOOTS IN WITH A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN, RAINING HEAVY FISTS DOWN ON ZACK CRASH’S HEAD!! Crash does his best to cover up and scramble away, but Eclipse drags him back and continues to fire away! Crash rolls over onto his stomach…not a good move, I’d imagine! Eclipse hooks Crash in a front facelock…AND DRIVES A KNEE INTO THE TOP OF HIS HEAD!! OH MY!…ANOTHER KNEE! AND ANOTHER! ANOTHER!! ECLIPSE DIEMOS IS FIRING OFF INSANE KNEES AT LIGHTNING SPEED, AND ZACK CRASH HAS HAD HIS LIGHTS TURNED OFF!! Eclipse, breathing heavily, rises to his feet, staring a hole through Crash…Eclipse suddenly roars in anger and DRAGS Zack Crash back to his feet by his ears…AND TOSSES HIM INTO THE NEARBY TURNBUCKLE!!! Crash hits the pads hard, and Eclipse immediately goes to work on Zack’s ribs, delivering a constant stream of punches and knees!
Kawajai: Eclipse grabs Crash by the wrist and whips him HARD towards the opposite turnbuckle…Zack hits HARD and stumbles out…HERE COMES ECLIPSE, looking for a body avalanche…AND CRASH DUCKS! DROP TOE HOLD INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE!!! Eclipse’s face hits hard, sending him stumbling backwards…Crash stands…HOOKS BOTH ARMS…SPINS….
WWEFan: CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAASH COUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURSE!!!
Kawajai: THE SPINNING UNPRETTIER!! THE CRASH COURSE!!! FROM NOWHERE!! CRASH IS GONNA WIN THIS!!! HE CRAWLS INTO THE PIN…
Referee: ONEEEEEE!! TWWWWWOOOOO!!!!
Kawajai: NO!!!!! NO!!! NO!!!! NO!!! ECLIPSE KICKED OUT!!! ZACK CRASH IS SHOCKED…pardon the pun…AND HE’S PLEADING WITH THE REF!!!
WWEFan: Eclipse suddenly wakes up and shakes his head, trying his best to push himself up and crawl to the ropes, but Crash turns his attention back and starts dropping heavy, HEAVY boots to the back of Eclipse’s head…
Zack Crash (no mic): “You think you’re tough? Huh, big boy?! Eat this!”
WWEFan: Crash takes off towards the ropes as Eclipse rises to a knee…Crash rebounds…
Kawajai: AND IS BROUGHT DOWN WITH AN EXPLOSIVE LARIAT FROM ECLIPSE DIEMOS!! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN! BOTH MEN ARE OUT!!!
WWEFan: Zack Crash spits up and sputters back to consciousness, and Eclipse is again slowly rising to a knee…Crash rolls over onto his stomach and pushes himself up to a knee…Eclipse is standing…he notices Crash…AND TAKES OFF towards the ropes…Eclipse rebounds, raising his leg…ROOM THIRTE-
Kawajai: NO!! Crash BARELY rolls out of the way!! Eclipse stumbles forward, almost hitting the cage!! Crash dives in…
WWEFan: AND SHOVES ECLIPSE FORWARD INTO THE ROPES AND CAGE!!! MY GOD!! THOSE SPARKS!!! ECLIPSE SCREAMS IN PAIN AS HE FALLS BACK, CLUTCHING AT HIS LEFT HAND, WHICH THANKFULLY TOOK THE BRUNT OF THE DAMAGE, BUT DAMMIT IF IT ISN’T BURNT TO A CRISP! Crash laughs hysterically as he surveys his havoc from a nearby turnbuckle! And of COURSE that sociopath is proud of himself!!
Kawajai: Zack Crash is a Hall of Famer for a God Damn REASON, Fan! He’s the smartest player in whatever game he plays, and this match is NO exception!
WWEFan: Oh, get over yourself! Crash stumbles cockily towards Eclipse, who still writhes in pain as Zack grabs him by the hair and slowly drags him up…Crash holds on and puts his finger in Eclipse’s face…then SLAPS the TASTE out of his mouth, AGAIN!! Crash takes off towards the ropes…BUT IS FOLLOWED BY ECLIPSE…Crash turns…
Kawajai: AVALANCHE INTO THE CAGE WALL!!! ZACK CRASH JUST GOT SANDWICHED AGAINST THE ELECTRIC CAGE WALL AND ECLIPSE’S MASSIVE FRAME!! A DAMN EXPLOSION OF SPARKS DAMN NEAR HIT THE FANS IN THE FRONT ROW, AND ZACK CRASH IS ON DAMN FIRE!!
WWEFan: OH, Please, but he’s CERTAINLY in TREMENDOUS pain!! Eclipse dives in for the cover!! THIS IS IT!!
Referee: ONEEEEE!! TWWWWWWO!!! THRRRRRR —
WWEFan: NO! NO! Crash got the shoulder up!! Eclipse shoots up to his feet and takes off towards the ropes…he rebounds..and LEAPS FOR SENTON…
Kawajai: BUT CRASH ROLLS AWAY! Eclipse hits the mat hard and sits up…Crash, in a moment of PURE adrenaline, hits the ropes…rebounds…SHINING WIZARD TO THE BACK OF ECLIPSE’S HEAD!! OHHHH MY WORD….Eclipse sits frozen in pain before falling back, his glazed eyes staring up at the lights…Zack Crash, still the worse for wear, struggles to recover from his last blast of energy…Zack drags himself over to the far turnbuckle and pulls himself up, buckle by buckle…Crash slowly turns and stares at Eclipse…and you can see the gears turning through his eyes…What is he planning?
WWEFan: Zack Crash turns his attention back to the turnbuckle…and starts UNHOOKING THE ROPES…WHAT THE HELL!?!
Kawajai: Zack uses whatever strength he has left to untwist the top rope from the turnbuckle…his early years of experience setting up rings and breaking them down, strangely aiding him in this ordeal…he has the top rope unhooked on one corner, and now he’s working on the second…
WWEFan: I think he’s looking to expose an ENTIRE side of the cage…My GOD…Zack unfastens the second rope…onto the bottom…Eclipse, meanwhile, shakes the cobwebs loose and drags himself to his feet…Eclipse slowly turns and notices what Zack is doing…just as Zack unhooks the bottom rope! Zack turns just in time to see Eclipse rush in… Zack charges in as well…
Kawajai: AND NEARLY GETS SPINEBUSTERED THROUGH THE RING BY ECLIPSE DIEMOS!! WAIT! Eclipse holds onto the legs…backs up…and STARTS SWINGING!! INSANITY’S CRADLE!! ONE…TWO….THREE…..FOUR….AND THE FIFTH…
WWEFan: SENDS ZACK CRASHING INTO THE EXPOSED WALL OF THE CAGE!!
Kawajai: I do NOT appreciate the pun, Fan! Not one bit!!
WWEFan: I DO! A SPRAY OF SPARKS GOES FLYING AND CRASH IS LEFT LYING IN A SMOKING HEAP!!! ECLIPSE DROPS TO A KNEE TO REGAIN HIS COMPOSURE…AND SUDDENLY LEAPS TO HIS FEET AND INTO THE AIR…HARD SENTON CRUSHES ZACK CRASH!! ZACK HUFFS IN PAIN AS ECLIPSE RISES TO HIS FEET, AND THESE FANS ARE GOING CRAZY!!!
Kawajai: Eclipse…stands in the corner, breathing heavily, but firmly in control here…
WWEFan: Why isn’t he going for the pin here?
Kawajai: How would I know? Eclipse is a weird guy. What’s he doing? He’s…he’s waving to someone up in the stands…
WWEFan: Wait…he’s waving to the Technical booth…he’s…he’s waving…
Kawajai: MAERO IS IN THE GOD DAMN TECHNICAL CONTROL BOOTH!!
WWEFan: So is Solomon Caine!! Maero is manning the controls while Eclipse is in the ring directing traffic!! Eclipse raises one hand and puts his thumb down…what does that mean?
(“Mafioso” by Mac Dre plays but cuts off quickly)
WWEFan: Eclipse looks frustrated…Maero simply shrugs…he flips another switch…AND ALL THE CAGE WALLS SPARK…and go dead!! What the hell is going on?! Maero is shoving Solomon Caine out of the Tech booth…what is this?!
Kawajai: It’s the Damn Sanatorium! Who the hell will ever know with these weirdos!
WWEFan: Eclipse is signalling for something else…wait, Zack Crash creeps up…ROLL UP!! ZACK PUTS HIS FEET ON THE ROPES FOR GOOD MEASURE…
Referee: ONEEEEE!! TWWOOOOO!!!! THRRRR…..
WWEFan: NO! Eclipse kicks out and rolls backwards to his feet…Zack rises as well and DUCKS a lariat attempt…Eclipse turns…TWISTING ENZIGURI FROM ZACK CRASH!! Eclipse stumbles over and collapses to the mat, but is quickly dragged to his feet by the rejuvenated Zack Crash…Zack knees Eclipse in the gut, bending him over…Zack shoves his knee into the side of Eclipse’s head…CODE OF SILENCE!! OH MY GOD!! ECLIPSE IS OUT COLD!! ZACK CRASH…DOESN’T COVER!!?!
Kawajai: CRASH AGAIN DRAGS ECLIPSE TO HIS FEET AND HOLDS HIM UP BY THE HAIR…SLAP!! SLAP!! A FLURRY OF THEM NOW!! ZACK CRASH IS LETTING OUT ALL OF HIS FRUSTRATION AND PAIN HERE!! ECLIPSE STAGGERS BACK…
Zack Crash (no mic): “YOU’RE DEAD!”
WWEFan: Crash Spins…DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!! ECLIPSE JUST GOT FOLDED UP LIKE A NEWSPAPER, RIGHT ON HIS NECK, WITH HIS OWN GLASGOW SMILE!!! ZACK COVERS!! HE’S DONE!!! IT’S OVER!!!!!!
Referee: ONE! TWO!!!!! THREEEEEEE —
WWEFan: NO!!! NO! NO!! ECLIPSE, AT THE VERY LAST SECOND!!!
Kawajai: Wait…there’s Solomon Caine! In the crowd!!
WWEFan: Solomon hops the barricade and rushes towards the steel cage…it’s not electric anymore, remember…Zack Crash looks up, enraged at the kick out…and sees Solomon! Crash erupts in anger and rushes towards the cage wall, spitting any insult he can think of…hold on, it looks like Maero is busy battling security! This has become complete anarchy! Zack, meanwhile, turns his attention back to Eclipse, who is barely beginning to stir, and goes back to laying the boots to him…six, seven, eight stomps…and he turns back to Caine, grinning like a madman.
Kawajai: Or like a man that knows that he’s back in control, Fan!
WWEFan: Solomon Caine…Solomon reaches into his pocket…what is that?
Kawajai: Are those ZIP-TIES?!?!? Of COURSE he would just HAVE zip-ties in his pocket, that serial killer!
WWEFan: TWO zip-ties,, he indeed has, and he shoves them them over the cage, where they fall uselessly next to the ropes. Zack nonchalantly picks them up, laughing as he looks back to Solomon.
Zack Crash (no mic): “Was this it? Was this the plan? HA!”
Kawajai: Yeah, you tell em, Zack! Zack Crash holds the zip-ties up mockingly and shows them to the crowd, who roar in disapproval, before he bends over laughing. Zack Crash turns his attention back to Solomon and smirks, before turning back…
WWEFan: ROOOOOOM THIRTEEEEEEEEEN!! ZACK’S HEAD BOUNCES OFF THE CAGE AND HE CRUMBLES TO THE MAT, AND ECLIPSE DOES THE SAME!! THAT HUGE HUGE YUUUUUUGE BIG BOOT MIGHT HAVE WON THIS MATCH FOR ECLIPSE!!! Eclipse, instead of going for the pin, goes for the zip-ties, and puts them between his teeth, freeing his hands to drag Zack Crash over to the exposed side of the cage….ohhh, I don’t like this at all…
Kawajai: WHO KNOWS WHAT THAT MANIAC HAS IN MIND! CALL THE POLICE, FOR GOD’S SAKE!!
WWEFan: Eclipse shoves Crash against the cage and holds one of his arms against it…he uses his free hand to grab a zip-tie…and FASTEN CRASH’S ARM TO THE CAGE!! OH NO! NO! Eclipse grabs the other arm…and fastens that one as well…CRUCIFYING ZACK CRASH ON THE CAGE!!! Eclipse stumbles back and falls to a knee, never taking his eyes off of Zack, who shakes himself back awake…I think…I think Zack Crash is realizing what’s happened…Eclipse slowly sits down on the mat, cross-legged…and raises his hand…
Kawajai: No…No…. Wait a minute…Solomon Caine is back in the control booth! When did he leave the ringside!? He’s fighting off the security…freeing Maero to regain control…OF THE ELECTRICAL BOOTH!! NO! NO! NO!! I KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING!! NO!!
WWEFan: Eclipse smirks at Zack, who simply screams in anger and fear as he throws kicks miles away from Eclipse…who drops his hand… AND MAERO FLIPS THE SWITCH!! THE CAGE SURGES TO LIFE WITH RAGING ELECTRICITY!!! ZACK CRASH IS BEING ELECTROCUTED BEFORE OUR VERY EYES!!! I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS BRUTALITY!!
Kawajai: WAIT…WAIT…ECLIPSE IS BACK UP…RUNS FORWARD…
WWEFan: ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM THIRTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN!!!!! ZACK CRASH IS AGAIN SMASHED AGAINST THE STEEL, AND HE IS BEING FRIED ALIVE…
Kawajai: HOW IS THIS NOT A PUBLIC EXECUTION!?!
WWEFan: THE ZIP-TIES…THEY’RE MELTING FROM THE ELECTRICITY…ZACK COLLAPSES FORWARD, STILL SMOKING FROM THE CAGE, AND ECLIPSE DIVES IN FOR THE COVER!!
Referee: ONEEEEEE!!! TWWWOOOOO!!!! THRRREEEEEE!!!!
(DING DING DING!!!)
Announcer: “HERE IS YOUR WINNER, ECLIPSE…..DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEMOOOOOOOOOOOOS!!!!”
Kawajai: I DON’T BELIEVE THIS!!
WWEFan: ECLIPSE DIEMOS JUST FRIED ZACK CRASH AGAINST THE ELECTRIFIED STEEL CAGE…AND THEN HIT THE ROOM 13 BIG BOOT!! THIS IS INSANITY!! I AM, AND PARDON THE PUN AGAIN, SHOCKED BY THIS!!!
(Maero, meanwhile, relinquishes control of the Tech booth and makes his way down to the ring, where the cage is now being lifted. Eclipse slowly regains his composure and slides under the bottom rope, collapsing into the arms of his brother Maero.)
WWEFan: ECLIPSE NEEDS TO HELPED OUT OF THE RING…ZACK CRASH IS LYING TWITCHING AND SIZZLING IN THE MIDDLE OF IT…THE RING ROPES ARE OFF AND LYING SINGED ON THE APRON…THIS WAS AN ABSOLUTE WAR….AND ECLIPSE DIEMOS, IN THE LOOSEST SENSE OF THIS WORD, IS THE VICTOR.
Kawajai: Zack Crash…is somehow…rolling over to his stomach…and out of the ring…How is he even ALIVE, let alone moving on his own accord? Zack falls to the mats, where ring crew and medical personnel stand waiting. Zack Crash is helped to his feet by the EMT’s…my God, look at his eyes!
WWEFan: Zack Crash’s pupils are as wide as dinner plates…he hasn’t blinked since the electricity returned to the cage and electrocuted him…his hair is smoking…he’s just…staring off as the EMT’s assist him up the ramp…
Kawajai: Eclipse Diemos just fried the brain of a GOT DAMN HALL OF FAMER!! I can’t BELIEVE this!
WWEFan: I hardly can either, Jai, but there’s still more to come after this…
(An exhausted Drastik is seen backstage with his newly won Hardcore Championship draped over his shoulder. Flannery McCoy walks over to talk to him)
Flannery: Drastik! The New Hardcore Champion! Tonight you put Nathan Fiora through pretty much everything imaginable. Where do you go from here?
Drastik: I just want to tell Nathan Fiora why I beat him out there tonight. He went out there with his buddy “Preacher” Jamal, and I went out there with my own two fists while he had to hide brass knuckles just to get a shot in on me at the beginning. It was a clever plan, but you should know that everybody has a plan until it stops working. Your plan didn’t work. I’m the new Hardcore Champion. But that isn’t all I am.
(Flannery appears confused)
Flannery: What else are you?
Drastik: BEST. IN THE WORLD.
Flannery: Uh… What?
Drastik: I said what I said. And again, I’m not done.
Flannery: So what else is there?
Drastik: I have an announcement. i spoke with the higher-ups before my match earlier this week, and I asked them if I could revive a little something if I ended up winning…
Flannery: Well go on, the crowd is waiting to hear it!
Drastik: I’m fearless. And that is why, as your new Hardcore Champion, I am reintroducing 24/7 rules. That’s right. I could get attacked right now and lose this Hardcore Championship.
(Drastik looks over his shoulder)
Drastik: Any time. Any place. Unlike our previous Hardcore Champion, I put my money where my mouth is.
(Drastik walks off the set)
Flannery: Wow! Big news! That means ANYBODY, at any time, can become the Hardcore Champion. Someone better catch Drastik sleeping!
(The camera cuts back to the arena as thousands of fans cheer. The camera then focuses on hundreds of cattle prods scattered throughout the outside of the ring.)
RA: Ladies and gentlemen… the following contest is a 5 on 5 tag team elimination match! The only way to win is by eliminating all 5 members of the opposing team until only one side is left standing! By orders of EAW Officials… everything goes but interference from opposite teams will not be tolerated and will result in a disqualification! Introducing first…
(“Wreak Havoc” by Skylar Grey begins to blast throughout the entire arena as Tarah, Aria, Cailin, Sheridan and Haruna Sakazaki come together as a unit, high-fiving all the fans as they walk down the ramp towards the ring, trying to not to make contact with the cattle prods.)
RA: The team of Tarah Nova, Aria Jaxon, Haruna Sakazaki… The 2016 Empress of Elite Cailin Dillon and… YOUR EAW VIXENS WORLD CHAMPION, SHERIDAN MULLER…. TEAM SIRENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SG1: As a recap to those who don’t follow, the original trio of team Sirens are Cailin Dillon, Aria Jaxon and Tarah Nova. However, weeks ago our general manager Cleopatra wanted to put an end to the recurring chaos on Empire caused by both the Sirens and the OG Vixens. Cleo wants to settle the score tonight and finally put an end to this battle.
Starr: The Sirens recruited Haruna Sakazaki and the Vixens champ Sheridan Müller for their team. Now we’ll see if they can go toe-to-toe with the Greatest Vixens of all time! Completely non-biased opinion, I swear.
(“We Hate Everyone” by K.Flay begins to play as the fans react with an immense amount of boo’s. After a few seconds, Team OG emerges from the back and taunts the crowd as they slowly make their way to the ring.)
RA: AND THEIR OPPONENTS!… Introducing the team of The Heart Break Gal, Cameron Ella Ava, Veena Adams, Cloud Matsuda and the EAW SPECIALIST CHAMPION KENDRA SHAMEZ…. TEAM OG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Starr: TEAM OG! TEAM OG! The holy trinity of Empire!
SG1: Oh for Christ’s sake, keep it in your pants, Starr! The OG Vixens have been the primary factors as to why Empire has gone downhill! They constantly interfered in matches, constantly tried to intimidate their fellow Empire roster members ACTING as if they have any seniority in this company. Just downright pathetic!
Starr: Acting as if they have seniority?! Uh… HELLO SG1! Get your head out of the sand and realize that the women that are walking before you are legends who paved the way for Vixens like Sheridan Müller and Cailin Dillon! Veena Adams and Cloud Matsuda are definitely up and coming and they are smart and humble enough to realize that if it wasn’t for the OG’s, they wouldn’t have a job right now. Finally, after tonight we won’t have to hear Tarah Nova’s nasally voice rant about how Team Siren is more powerful than Team OG. Put them in their place, baby!
(Team Siren is in their respective corner as Team OG gets ready. Kendra hops on the turnbuckle and winks at a flustered Starr Stan as she raises her championship high in the air.)
SG1: Jesus Christ.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Starr: The bell has rung and now this match has officially started! Both teams are deliberating as to who should go first. The OG Vixens have decided that the Specialist champ should represent their team as The Sirens have yet to choose who will face Kendra. Oh, hurry up! We don’t have all day!
SG1: Patience, Starr! It looks like the Leader of the Vixens is starting off the match for the left corner. Both Vixens are staring at one another attentively as the crowd begins to cheer for Team Siren. That’s the spirit! Team OG doesn’t seem too fond about these comments but Kendra is simply brushing it off as she turns around and gives a reassuring cocky smile to Team OG. BUT AS SOON AS KENDRA TURNS TARAH NOVA COMES IN FOR THE KILL WITH A VERTICAL PRESS THAT TAKES THE OG VIXEN DOWN TO THE MAT! Tarah is throwing left and rights and is acting like a savage animal! Kendra is trying her best to slide her way out of this situation but Tarah is going in! Tarah quickly rises to her feet and flies with a dropkick to the seated Specialist champ! And Tarah takes advantage as she goes for the cover!
Starr: AND AN IMMEDIATE KICK OUT FROM KENDRA SHAMEZ, THANK GOD. I wouldn’t be able to sleep if this piece of trash eliminated her from the get-go! An already frustrated Tarah Nova picks Kendra from her hair but is met with a grueling kick to the midsection! Kendra grabs Tarah and throws her against the ropes! Tarah comes bouncing back and Kendra catches Tarah’s head in between her arms and delivers a DDT! Man! You can just see Tarah’s face print the canvas! Well, what else could one expect from a gal wearing 1,000 pounds of make up?
SG1:… So unnecessary, Starr! ANYWAY! Tarah is cornered in the turnbuckle nearest the OG Vixens as Kendra takes a few steps back… A BACKHAND CHOP FROM THE SPECIALIST CHAMPION! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER!! Tarah’s chest is beginning to turn bright red! She’s holding her chest as Kendra removes Tarah’s hands… AND ANOTHER CHOP! DID YOU HEAR THAT IMPACT, STARR? That chop made Tarah fall down on her knees! God, the noise that made is going to give me nightmares!
Starr: What else do you expect from the OG Vixen herself?! Kendra is laughing at Tarah Nova’s pain as she tags in the 3-time Vixen of the year, 2012 Hall of Famer… CAMERON ELLA AVA!
SG1: If only all the Vixens got amazing introductions like that one…
Starr: HUSH! Can’t you see that we’re about to witness greatness?! Cameron is tagged in as she begins to taunt Tarah… and she rubs her hand all over her face! Cameron places the rubber heel of her boot to the neck of Tarah Nova as Tarah pleads for her to stop! Look at the faces of the Sirens, SG1! They’re looking completely distressed as Tarah is reaching out to make a tag. But it’s useless as she’s on the opposite side of the ring. CAMERON SLAPS THE HAND OF TARAH IN AN AGGRESSIVE MANNER AS SHE BEGINS TO THRUST HER SHOULDER IN TARAH’S MIDSECTION! One shoulder thrust after another! Tarah’s body is dwindling as Cameron is on a roll! Cameron is aligning Tarah to hit her with the Bitch Camp… AND… AND VEENA ADAMS JUST TAGGED HERSELF IN! Cameron is looking back at Veena in confusion as the eager future OG let’s herself into the ring! Cameron is now arguing with Veena as Veena simply ignores her and tells her to go back into her corner.
SG1: Looks like Team OG is already showing cracks but Veena is showing an immense amount of excitement to even care for what Cameron has to say! Tarah is already midway the ring as she’s crawling to her corner but Veena grabs her feet and drags her back to the OG’s side! She picks Tarah up and pulls her in a full nelson! Veena is squeezing as hard as she can as Tarah is just calling out for help! She immediately let’s go as she begins to strike Tarah’s back, having her fall to her knees! Veena takes a few steps back AS SHE GOES FOR THE DIVING KNEE STRIKE TO THE ARM OF TARAH NOVA! Tarah looks like she’s on the verge of being knocked out but is showing a bit of life as she flips the middle finger to the niece of the former Hall of Fame champion! Veena is appalled as she gives Tarah a shoot kick to the side of the head as Tarah unfortunately falls to her back. Veena goes for the cover!
Starr: BUT CAILIN DILLON COMES AND BREAKS UP THE PIN! The Empress of Elite has her best friend’s back as she just ruined Veena’s chances of eliminating The Elite City Siren! Veena is furious as she is yelling Cailin Dillon’s face! Cailin doesn’t hesitate and grabs Veena by her hair and throws her out of the ring! Veena goes tumbling down as Cailin quickly follows! Ref! Do something! Cailin isn’t even the legal woman of the match! HAVE HER DISQUALIFIED, DAMN IT! Veena is face down on the ground as Cailin reaches over… BUT CAILIN SCREAMS IN PAIN AS VEENA ELECTROCUTES HER WITH THE CATTLE PROD! RIGHT IN HER MIDSECTION YOU CAN SEE A WELT FORMING! Cailin is rolling around the ground in pain as the OG Vixens DEMAND Veena to get back in the ring and to finish off Tarah! Veena complies and slides back in… BUT IT’S TOO LATE! TARAH IS CRAWLING AND REACHING FOR SHERIDAN MULLER’S EXTENDED HAND… SHE’S ALMOST THERE! SHE’S ALMOST GOING TO TAG IN THE VIXENS CHAMP! BUT… BUT TARAH’S HAND CRIPPLES AS SHE FEELS VEENA ADAMS STAB HER IN THE LOWER BACK WITH THE CATTLE PROD! SHE DOESN’T LET GO! YOU CAN SEE TARAH’S BODY SHAKING AND SHIVERING AS THE ELECTRICITY SURGES THROUGH HER! TARAH’S YELLING OUT IN… AND ALL OF THAT SHOCK FROM THE CATTLE PROD MAY HAVE JUST CAUSED HER TO PASS OUT FROM THE PAIN AS VEENA FINALLY GOES IN FOR THE PIN!
RA: Ladies and gentlemen… Tarah Nova has been eliminated!
Starr: THERE IS A GOD! THERE IS A GOD! VEENA ADAMS SEEMS TO BE SHOCKED HERSELF THAT SHE ELIMINATED TARAH NOVA! Although, that look of slight confusion is quickly faded as Veena begins to taunt Tarah as she is checked by paramedics. Things don’t look so good since Tarah is barely moving!
SG1: Sheridan Müller is absolutely baffled at the performance she just witnessed. The Vixen’s champ is ready to get this match going as she makes through the ring ropes, however, ARIA JAXON BEATS HER TO THE PUNCH AND DECLARES HERSELF AS THE LEGAL WOMAN! Sheridan is growing increasingly annoyed but Aria Jaxon is coming into this match with fire in her eyes! She HITS VEENA WITH A CLOTHESLINE THAT ALMOST KNOCKS HER OUT! Aria corners Veena and HITS HER WITH THE BEAUTY MARK! FINALLY, THE SIRENS ARE MAKING A COMEBACK AS ARIA GIVES VEENA A HANDSPRING BACK ELBOW MASH! Veena is grabbing her face as Aria whips her to the opposite turnbuckle. Aria is charging towards Veena but Veena GIVES HER A BIG BOOT TO THE FACE BEFORE SHE COULD CONNECT! Veena’s cockiness shows through once again as she begins to laugh at Aria’s demise! She begins to flick Aria’s forehead with her finger as she repeatedly calls her a… what is she saying, Starr? An immigrant?! Um, I’m pretty sure Aria is from here. But Veena is calling her an immigrant regardless! A flustered Aria kicks Veena in the gut as she grabs Veena and PERFECTLY DELIVERS A BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! BUT THEN ARIA TRANSITIONS THE MOVE AND PUTS VEENA INTO A CROSS ARMBREAKER! SHE’S ALMOST GOING TO CONNECT! VEENA IS TRYING HARD TO NOT HAVE ARIA COMPLETELY LOCK THE MOVE IN! BUT SHE LOCKS IT IN! ARIA IS STRETCHING AS FAR AS SHE CAN AND VEENA IS CRYING OUT IN PAIN! THE AGGRESSIVE MS. JAXON IS GOING TO RIP VEENA’S ARM OFF ANY MINUTE! VEENA IS TRYING TO REACH OVER THE ROPES BUT IT’S USELESS! VEENA IS GOING TO TAP! SHE’S GOING TO TAP!!!
Starr: VEENA REACHES INTO HER BOOT AND PULLS OUT A MINI CATTLE PROD AND ATTEMPTS TO HIT ARIA’S SIDE! ARIA QUICKLY REALIZES WHAT’S HAPPENING AND IMMEDIATELY PULLS AWAY. Aria is avoiding the weapon as VEENA TURNS THE CATTLE PROD ON ANYWAY AND THROWS IT TOWARDS ARIA! ARIA DODGES THE MISSILE AS VEENA QUICKLY MAKES IT TO HER CORNER AND TAGS IN STEPHANIE MATSUDA!
SG1: SHE DOESN’T! ARIA PULLS VEENA A MILLISECOND BEFORE SHE GOT AN INCH CLOSER TO STEPH BY HER HAIR! ARIA WRAPS HERSELF AROUND VEENA… 187! THE REVERSED STO FOLLOWED BY A KOJI CLUTCH IS IN FULL EFFECT! VEENA’S FACE IS TURNING RED AS SHE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! WILL SHE TAP? WILL SHE TAP?!
Starr: SHE DOES! VEENA TAPS!
RA: Veena Adams has been eliminated!
SG1: VEENA JUST TAPPED OUT TO ARIA JAXON WHO HAS COMPLETELY CHANGED THE GAME! TEAM OG HAD THE ADVANTAGE BUT THE FORMER EMPRESS OF ELITE TURNED THINGS AROUND WITHIN THE BLINK OF AN EYE! AMAZING! SIMPLY AMAZING!
Starr: Stephanie quickly takes Veena’s place as the former Formation stablemates meet face to face after months apart. Aria is breathing heavily as she can’t help but to smile at Stephanie’s evil grin. Both Vixens lock up as Stephanie maneuvers Aria into a headlock! Stephanie’s quickness has obviously taken Aria by surprise as she’s attempting to get herself out of this predicament! Stephanie is squeezing Aria’s neck as hard as she can but Aria manages to slide her hand in between Stephanie’s legs as she slides her on her back for the pin!
SG1: And a kick out from Stephanie! Both Vixens rise to their feet as Aria whips Stephanie to the corner! Aria is going to charge towards her just how she did with Veena but Steph jumps over the ropes at the last second! Stephanie is standing on the ring apron as she hits her with her forearms right at the temple of Aria Jaxon! Aria looks slightly dazed and Stephanie is about to make her way back into the ring but ARIA JAXON HITS STEPHANIE WITH AN ENZIGURI! STEPHANIE FALLS ON THE GROUND BUT QUICKLY RECOVERS TO HER FEET… BUT SHE IS TAKEN DOWN ONCE MORE AS ARIA DIVES THROUGH THE ROPES! A SUICIDE DIVE FROM ARIA! Both Vixens are motionless! I think that suicide dive took more out of Aria than it did from Stephanie! After a few moments, Stephanie is the first to show signs of life. She attempts to get herself up as Aria is as well. Aria is first to get on her feet and she is attempting to slide into the ring… BUT STEPHANIE GRABS A CATTLE PROD AND HITS THE BACK OF THE LEG OF ARIA! ARIA IS WITHERING IN PAIN! ARIA IS SOOTHING HER IRRITATED SKIN BUT STEPHANIE SHOWS NO REMORSE AS SHE THROWS HER INTO THE RING! SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Starr: But Aria kicks out! And so close, too! Stephanie grabs Aria by her hair as she throws Aria towards the ropes… Stephanie goes for a vicious clothesline but Aria ducks! She ducks and jumps on the ropes as SHE HITS STEPHANIE WITH THE ONE NIGHT STAND! A SPRINGBOARD STUNNER! BOTH ARIA AND STEPHANIE ARE CRAWLING TO THEIR RESPECTIVE CORNERS…. AND ARIA TAGS IN THE VIXENS CHAMP WHEREAS STEPHANIE IS STILL CRAWLING TOWARDS HBG… The Vixens champion was ACHING to get her feet in the water in this match and finally, the time has come! SHERIDAN IS ANALYZING STEPHANIE, GETTING HER READY FOR THE SHERPLEX BUT… HARUNA TAGS HERSELF IN! SHERIDAN CAN’T BELIEVE IT! SHE IS BEGINNING TO ARGUE WITH HARUNA BUT HARUNA IS NOT HAVING IT! SHE’S REACTING ON PURE ADRENALINE AND RUSHES IN TO HIT STEPHANIE WITH LAPIS LAZULI! JUMPING CORKSCREW ROUNDHOUSE KICK! STEPHANIE IS OUT! SHE’S COMPLETELY OUT! HARUNA HOOKS THE LEG AND GOES FOR THE COVER!
SG1: CAMERON ELLA AVA AND KENDRA SHAMEZ HAVE MANAGED THEIR WAY TO THE SIREN’S SIDE AS THE REF ORDERS THEM TO GET BACK TO THEIR CORNER BEFORE ANY ALTERCATION BEGINS! HARUNA HAS STEPHANIE’S LEG HOOKED BUT QUICKLY REALIZES WHAT IS HAPPENING. SHE STANDS AS SHE’S TRYING TO GRASP WHAT’S GOING ON! EVISCERATION!!!!!!!!!!! THE REF HAD HIS BACK TURNED AS THE HEART BREAK GAL JUST HIT HARUNA WITH THE CODEBREAKER! THIS IS AGAINST THE RULES! WHAT IS SHE DOING?! SHE’S RISKING GETTING ELIMINATED! HARUNA LAYS ALMOST UNCONSCIOUS AS HBG LAYS STEPHANIE ON TOP OF HARUNA! THE REF BEGINS TO COUNT!
RA: HARUNA SAKAZAKI HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!
Starr: THIS IS THE REASON WHY HBG IS A 4 TIMES VIXENS CHAMPION, SG1! DON’T HATE ON HER TACTICS! NOW TEAM SIRENS HAS 3 VIXENS AND TEAM OG HAS 4! BOTH CAILIN AND SHERIDAN ARE LOOKING AT ONE ANOTHER AND SHERIDAN IS THE ONLY ONE WHO HASN’T PARTICIPATING IN THIS MATCH THUS FAR. CAILIN APOLOGIZES TO SHERIDAN AND STATES THAT SHE MUST GO IN AND FINISH THE JOB! Sheridan rolls her eyes as she is CLEARLY on the verge of just leaving this match all together! Cailin Dillon gives Sheridan a reassuring smile and goes in for the kill on Stephanie Matsuda! BUT STEPHANIE REACHES HER CORNER AND TAGS IN THE HEART BREAK GAL! HBG comes in BUT IS STOPPED DEAD IN HER TRACKS AS CAILIN HITS HER WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! A SNAP DDT IS FOLLOWED ON HBG! Cailin knows this is her chance to eliminate the FORMER Vixens champion so she looks towards that turnbuckle. Oh, you know what that means! She’s thinking of flying high! Cailin makes her way to the top of the turnbuckle and tries to gather her balance… MOONSAULT ON THE BODY OF THE HEART BREAK GAL!
SG1: BUT NO ONE’S HOME! HBG MOVED AND CAILIN CRASHED AND BURNED ON THE CANVAS! HBG GOES FOR THE COVER!
Starr: THE EMPRESS OF ELITE MANAGES TO GET HER SHOULDER UP! HBG WASTES NO TIME AND GOES TO THE OG’S SIDE. TAG MADE! SHE TAGGED IN KENDRA SHAMEZ AS A REJUVENATED OG VIXEN EMERGES! KENDRA IS LINING CAILIN UP FOR THE SUNSET PEAK… SHE’S ATTEMPTING TO WRAP HER LEGS AROUND CAILIN’S NECK BUT CAN’T SEEM TO CONNECT! CAILIN’S STRENGTH IS UNMATCHABLE AS SHE CARRIES KENDRA AND PERFORMS A DEVASTATING BRAIN BUSTER! KENDRA’S HEAD BOUNCES ON THE MAT AS CAILIN REACHES OVER… AND TAG MADE! TO ARIA JAXON! ARIA COMES IN AND DELIVERS A DROPKICK! AND ANOTHER! ARIA IS FEELING THE MOMENTUM AND… RAGS TO RICHES! ANOTHER BRAIN BUSTER DELIVERED TO KENDRA! TWO IN ONE NIGHT, THAT MUST HURT! ARIA GOES FOR THE COVER!
SG1: NO! CAMERON JUST DELIVERED A PUNT TO THE SIDE OF ARIA’S HEAD, FORCING THE BREAK UP OF THE PIN! UH OH, BUT HERE COMES CAILIN AND DELIVERS THE EYES OF TEXAS! SWEET CHIN MUSIC ON CAMERON ELLA AVA! BUT HBG COMES FROM OUT OF NOWHERE AND ATTACKS CAILIN WITH A LOU THESZ PRESS! THE REF IS TRYING TO REGAIN CONTROL OF THIS MATCH BECAUSE IT’S BEGINNING TO TURN INTO A BRAWL! STEPHANIE AND SHERIDAN ARE BRAWLING ON THE OUTSIDE AS ARIA RISES… ARISE ARIA, ARISE!!! BITCH TREATMENT! JUMPING CUTTER FROM HELL FROM KENDRA SHAMEZ! SHE DEMANDS FOR THE REF TO COUNT!
SG1: KENDRA IS PUTTING HER FEET ON THE ROPES! ARIA LOOKS LIKE SHE’S ABOUT TO LIFT HER SHOULDER….
RA: Aria Jaxon has been eliminated!
SG1: WHAT! BUT ARIA LIFTED HER SHOULDER! AND KENDRA USED THE ROPES TO ADD PRESSURE TO THE PIN! THIS IS BULLSHIT!
Starr: BULLSHIT?! I CALL THIS CLASSIC RING AWARENESS! MY FORMER WIFE KNOWS HER SHIT!
SG1: Unbelievable! And Aria must be feeling what I’m feeling but 10x worse! Aria is arguing with the ref but there’s no use! She’s sent to the back as Sheridan finally gets in the ring! The Vixens champion is NOT holding back and this has turned out to be a Pain for Pride rematch! Kendra is about to engage as she’s about to lock in with Sheridan Müller…
Starr: But Kendra ignores Sheridan’s aggressive nature, as she should, and tags in Stephanie! Stephanie is a bit rattled from her previous encounter with the Vixens champ outside the ring, but she complies even though she questions why neither HBG nor Cam were tagged. Kendra demands for Stephanie to wrestle but Stephanie can’t help but to question the OG Vixen herself! Kendra is growing increasingly irritated but she has to understand that Stephanie has gone to hell and back in this matchup! BUT BEFORE SHE GETS TO EVEN TURN, SHERIDAN WRAPS HER HANDS AROUND STEPHANIE’S WAIST AND LOCKS HER FINGERS… SHERPLEX! … BUT SHERIDAN DOESN’T LET GO! SHE MANAGES TO TURN BOTH BODIES AROUND AND… ANOTHER SHERPLEX THAT LEAVES STEPHANIE’S NECK BENT IN AN AWKWARD POSITION! ONE MORE… SHERPLEX! AND SHE CONNECTS IT WITH A BRIDGE AND GOES FOR THE COVER!
Starr: CAMERON RUSHES OVER AND LUNGES AT SHERIDAN WITH A CATTLE PROD AS HER BRIDGE COLLAPSES, BUT THE PIN STILL REMAINS!
RA; STEPHANIE MATSUDA HAS BEEN EEELIMINATED!!!!!!!!!!
SG1: CAMERON TRIED TO RUIN THE PIN BUT SHERIDAN MANAGED TO COVER STEPHANIE ANYWAY! CAILIN IS FUELED WITH RAGE AS SHE GRABS A CATTLE PROD OF HER OWN AND STRIKES CAMERON ON HER BACK WITH IT! THE REF IS ASKING CAILIN TO GO BACK TO HER CORNER BUT SHE WON’T LISTEN! KENDRA COMES IN WITH A CATTLE PROD OF HER OWN AND SENDS SHOCKWAVES THROUGHOUT CAILIN’S SPINE. THE REF HAS HAD IT! THE REF IS CALLING FOR BOTH VIXENS TO LEAVE!
RA: Ladies and gentlemen… due to interference… CAILIN DILLON AND KENDRA SHAMEZ HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED!
Starr: OH MY GOD! EVERYONE’S JAWS HAVE DROPPED TO THE FLOOR! BOTH VIXENS, ARE YOU SERIOUS?!
SG1: I’M NOT SURE AS TO WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED BUT BOTH CAILIN AND KENDRA JUST GOT THE BOOT! CAILIN IS SHOCKED AND SO IS KENDRA. THEY’RE BOTH ORDERED TO LEAVE AND SHERIDAN IS ORDERING FOR CAILIN TO LEAVE AS WELL! Cailin looks like she’s about to get into Sheridan’s face but Cailin quickly de-escalates! Our Empress of Elite knows what she’s doing and won’t let this pitiful moment ruin everything she’s worked so hard for! Cailin is about to exit the ring but SHE’S HIT WITH A CATTLE PROD AGAIN! BY KENDRA SHAMEZ! RIGHT ON HER SPINE!!!!
Starr: CAILIN NOTICED THAT KENDRA WAS COMING SO SHE MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! OH MY GOD, KENDRA HIT THE REF! THE REF LOOKS LIKE HE’S HAVING SOME SORT OF CONVULSION! HE FALLS TO THE GROUND AND EVERYONE IS LEFT SPEECHLESS! Cailin DRAGS KENDRA OUT OF THE RING AND HBG QUICKLY NOTICES AND FOLLOWS AFTER! ALL THREE VIXENS ARE BRAWLING AND MANAGE TO GET IN THE CROWD! CAMERON IS THE LEGAL WOMAN AND HER AND SHERIDAN BEGIN TO TRADE BLOWS AFTER BLOWS! BOTH VIXENS RUN TOWARDS THE RING ROPES BUT CAMERON IS TAKEN DOWN WITH SINGLE LEG HIP TOSS! SHERIDAN PICKS CAMERON UP AND THROWS HER TO THE NEAREST TURNBUCKLE! CAMERON FALLS ON HER BOTTOM AND SHERIDAN BACKS UP… CANNON BALL SENTON! SHE JUST ROCKED CAMERON’S WORLD! SOMETHING HER EX COULDN’T DO! SHERIDAN IS ABOUT TO GO FOR THE COVER….
SG1: BUT CAILIN JUST CAME BACK INTO THE RING! HBG AND KENDRA SHAMEZ ARE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND! DID THEY JUST LEAVE CAMERON HIGH AND DRY?! CAMERON IS TRYING TO SEE WHERE THE OTHER FELLOW OG’S LEFT BUT AS I SAID BEFORE, IT SEEMS AS IF THEY LEFT THE BUILDING! CAILIN AND SHERIDAN BOTH STAND TALL BEFORE CAMERON AS SHERIDAN ATTEMPTS TO GO FOR THE PIN… BUT CAILIN STOPS HER!
Starr: CAILIN STOPS SHERIDAN AND QUICKLY SLIDES OUT AND BACK INTO THE RING… WHAT’S SHE PLANNING?… CAILIN HAS A CATTLE PROD IN HER HANDS! SHE WANTS SHERIDAN TO DO THE HONORS AND ELECTROCUTE THE LIVING HELL OUT OF CAMERON! TALK ABOUT DISRESPECT! SHERIDAN IS CLEARLY HESITANT… BUT SHE ACCEPTS! THIS IS DEFINITELY A NEW SIDE OF THE VIXENS CHAMP WE HAVEN’T SEEN BEFORE! CAMERON IS LOOKING SCARED AS WE CAN HEAR CAILIN TESTING OUT THE CATTLE PROD RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER!
SG1: WHAT THE HELL… OH MY GOD! CAILIN JUST HIT SHERIDAN WITH THE CATTLE PROD! THE ARENA IS LEFT IN SHOCK, LITERALLY!
STARR: CAILIN IS PRESSING THE NEEDLES FILLED WITH ELECTRICITY IN THE ABDOMEN OF THE VIXENS CHAMPION! I CAN SEE HER FAIR SKIN TURNING RED WITH IRRITATION. HOW PAINFUL! SHERIDAN IS SHRIVELLING DOWN TO THE CANVAS AS CAILIN DOESN’T STOP!
SG1: CAILIN JUST BETRAYED THE ONE WOMAN WHO SHE HAD SO MUCH RESPECT FOR! WHY, CAILIN, WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS?! CAILIN LIFTS SHERIDAN AND EYES OF TEXAS! CAILIN ALMOST SUPER KICKED SHERIDAN’S HEAD OFF OF HER SHOULDERS! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS! CAILIN GIVES A DEVILISH SMILE AS SHE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING… CAMERON IS LEFT IN COMPLETE SHOCK JUST LIKE THE REST OF US…
Starr: A NEW REF IS COMING DOWN THE RAMP, OH WHAT PERFECT TIMING! CAMERON HOOKS THE LEG!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
RA: YOUR WINNER… THE LAST TWO SURVIVING MEMBERS… THE HEART BREAK GAL AND THE GODDESS OF EAW… CAMERON ELLA AVA… TEAM OG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SG1: I AM AT A LOSS FOR WORDS. WHY WOULD CAILIN BETRAY TEAM SIRENS IN THIS MANNER? HAS SHE BEEN IN AN ALLIANCE WITH THE OG’S ALL THIS TIME? WAS IT IN THE HEAT OF THE MOMENT? HOW COME HBG GOT ANNOUNCED AS THE WINNER IF SHE WASN’T EVEN HERE?! I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY!
Starr: I’m not one to get easily shocked but I am at a loss for words… Next week’s Empire is going to be an interesting one… that’s for sure…
(The camera fades out momentarily.)[5 Minute Intermission – Stephen takes the stage to perform Shock Value’s official theme: “Crossfire”!]
(A recap of the events between Aren Mstislav, Matt Miles, and Y2Impact begins to play. It shows Aren Mstislav “channeling Voin” and retaining his EAW Championship at Pain for Pride after connecting with the Kaiser’s Crown Curb Stomp onto Carlos Rosso as the front of his head lied on the turnbuckle. After Aren’s celebration, it shows Judas’ winning streak, his matches with Pizza Boy, and memorable performance in the Grand Rampage. The package then flips to Y2Impact losing at Reckless Wiring before winning the Grand Rampage and failing to win the Answers World Title at Pain for Pride 9. It shows Impact unable to get back into the ring against Matt Miles several weeks ago, resulting in Miles’ countout victory. Impact is shown looking down in the video package as it turns to Judas and his assault on Aren “Voin” Mstislav from Voltage a couple weeks back. The video transitions into Judas exposing himself as one in the same with Matt Miles, the last image being the shocked expressions on the faces of the audience members as Aaron made the stunning revelation)
(The camera now pans back into the arena, where ominous music begins playing as the High Voltage structure descends down from the rafters)
Kawajai: It’s our main event of the evening! After Matt Miles shocked everybody by revealing to the world that he is in fact Judas, this is what we’ve all been waiting for. Miles defeated Y2Impact in singles competition via countout, a match Miles would argue is just another stepping stone on his path to World Championship gold. You cannot understate the grueling High Voltage structure! It’s fifteen feet high, and any impactful movement will elicit a shock from this terrifying cage.
WWEFan: To tell you the truth, I’m not sure the guys about to walk down to that ring are really prepared for what they signed up for. Time will tell.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Ring Announcer: This match is scheduled for one fall… and is a TRIPLE THREAT HIGH VOLTAGE MATCH FOR THE E! A! W! CHAMPIONSHIPPPPP!!!!! The only way to win is by pinfall or submission, and the final decision can only occur inside the High Voltage Steel Cage!
“Everything starts from now…”
(“Goodbye” by Kid Cudi blares over the speakers as Y2Impact walks out of the curtain, standing at the top of the ramp positioning himself in a Jesus pose. You can see “G.O.A.T.” on the back of his wrestling trunks before turning around and walking down to the ring. He mock-greets fans along the way who receive his entrance with deafening boos, pretending to extend his arm and high-five members of the audience before pulling it away and grinning smugly. Impact finally enters the ring)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first… Hailing from Seattle, Washington, weighing in at 226 pounds… Y! 2! IMPAAAAACTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!
Kawajai: Impact has had to down a few bitter pills to swallow over the course of this year. First he loses that Answers World Championship match against Mr. DEDEDE back at Reckless Wiring, effectively seeing Hexa-gun disband in the process. Then he has a momentary reprieve from all that heartache when he wins the Grand Rampage, only to lose in the Fatal Four-Way for the Answers World Championship at Pain for Pride! On the flip side, Impact has dominated his competition in recent weeks after taking that loss to Matt Miles. He can only hope it bodes well for him.
WWEFan: With Impact, any given moment the tables can be turned. He’s my wild card in this matchup.
(“Take Out the Gunman” by Chevelle hits over the speakers as Matt Miles energetically paces himself down the ramp, greeted by the fans with thunderous cheers, clapping hands with them along the way before making his entrance to the ring)
Ring Announcer: Hailing from San Diego, California, weighing in at 218 pounds… He is “THE MAN WITH THE MIDAS TOUCH” … MATTTTTT MILESSSS!!!!!
Kawajai: Matt Miles has been on such a great roll lately. You see what he’s done on Voltage and you see that he’s returned a new man. Everyone was shocked when he revealed himself as Judas, but that explains the level we’ve seen him competing at lately.
WWEFan: Think he takes it tonight?
Kawajai: I’m not going to make any predictions. It’s wait and see right now. All of these guys want it, and all of them are going to do everything in their power to make sure the guy on the other side of them doesn’t get it.
(“Tili Tili Bom” drones throughout the arena as the lights dim. Voin is seen at the top of the ramp with smoke coming from behind him, the EAW Championship around his waist. He slams his palm against the stage, simulating heartbeats. He slowly crawls to the center of the ramp before standing when the chorus heightens)
Ring Announcer: And their opponent, from Saint Petersburg, Russia, weighing in at 220 pounds… “THE RUSSIAN KING” AND YOUR REIGNING, DEFENDING E! A! W CHAMPIOONNNNN… “VOIN” AREN MSTISLAV!!!!!
WWEFan: THERE HE IS! VOIN! Before he became the EAW Champion, you just knew he had the potential to be one. He was “The Russian Prince” and now he’s cemented himself as the King of our industry over on Voltage. A victory over Matt Miles and Y2Impact tonight would only further cement the empire this Russian King has built for himself.
Kawajai: Something tells me Voin isn’t going to take too kindly to Matt Miles’ charade as Judas, and he’s going to take it out on him tonight.
(Aren Mstislav enters the ring as Y2Impact and Matt Miles both stare daggers through the back of his head. Voin has a blank expression on his face, handing the EAW Championship to an official to take over to the timekeeper’s area. As all three competitors are in the ring, the referee shuts the High Voltage cage door)
(A sound of electricity can be heard emitting from the cage as sparks begin to fly about. The official now calls for the bell)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Kawajai: And here it goes! The main event of the evening, with the man of the hour Aren Mstislav standing in the ring. Matt Miles is looking at Voin, and Voin isn’t taking his sights away from Miles. Y2Impact is scouting the two in the corner of the ring, and now Voin sprints at Miles to open this matchup! Voin is throwing haymakers and swinging punches all over Matt Miles, but Miles is retaliating! It’s a frenzy here in the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in front of a capacity crowd of 14,708! Voin tries to trap Miles with some sort of chokehold, but Miles twirls and spins his way out of it and absolutely CLOCKS Voin in the schnoz on the rebound! Voin momentarily staggers back, but regains his footing and fires back at Matt Miles to connect with a Spinning Backfist! Now Miles staggers back, his face looking like he’s on dream street, BUT A SUPERKICK TO VOIN! MILES SUPERKICKS VOIN AFTER AN EXCELLENT EXCHANGE BETWEEN THE TWO MEN, AND VOIN IS STILL ON HIS FEET! VOIN IS ABSOLUTE MONSTER! MILES IS STILL FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THE SPINNING BACKFIST WHILE Y2IMPACT LOOKS ON LETTING THE TWO MEN SQUARE UP!
WWEFan: The Electrified Cage hasn’t factored into the matchup early on, but now Miles charges at the dazed Voin in an attempt to send him into the Electrified Cage with a clothesline! BACK BODY DROP! BACK BODY DROP BY VOIN SENDS MATT MILES FLYING INTO THE ELECTRIFIED CAGE, AND HE FLOPS BACK INTO THE RING FLAILING AROUND LIKE A FISH AFTER BEING SHOCKED BY THAT ELECTRIFIED CAGE! WOW!
Kawajai: The crowd is full of “oohs” and “ahhs” after Miles just took that hit. Voin slumps his shoulders and head downward, grabbing near his knees and trying to regain his breath. Y2Impact goes in to capitalize and connects with a chop block to the back of Voin’s knee! The crowd responds with a torrent of boos and Impact is just eating it up! Voin clutches at his leg as Impact smacks the face-painted EAW Champion around on the ground. But you can see Voin getting back up! Impact is SCREAMING at him saying “STAY DOWN!” but Voin is getting angry as Impact continues smacking the side of his head relentlessly, and now Voin is back up to his feet! VOIN IS UP AND CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO THE SIDE OF IMPACT’S HEAD, NOW GRABBING HIS ARM AND TRYING TO WHIP HIM INTO THE ELECTRIFIED STEEL CAGE, BUT IMPACT WITH BOTH OF HIS HANDS ON THE ROPES IS TRYING TO DO ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING HE CAN TO PREVENT HIMSELF FROM BEING SHOCKED! VOIN IS OVERPOWERING IMPACT, BUT NOW IMPACT RELEASES ONE HAND FROM THE ROPES AND TWEAKS THE EYE OF VOIN! VOIN CLUTCHES AT HIS EYES AS IMPACT SPRINGS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG!
WWEFan: Miles is still down after being shocked by the Electrified Steel Cage, and Impact has the authority to do pretty much whatever he wants right now. Impact rises to his feet after planting Voin’s face to the mat with that running bulldog, and now he’s pointing toward the ropes! He’s going to go for the Lionsault, he wants to put this match away early and take home the hardware! The crowd isn’t having any of it, but Impact defiantly runs forward, spring boarding off the ropes! NO, WAIT! WHAT?! MILES RISES TO HIS FEET, DASHING FORWARD WITH SPEED OF A CHEETAH AND AND SLAMMING Y2IMPACT FACE-FIRST INTO THE ELECTRIFIED STEEL CAGE RIGHT AS HE WAS ATTEMPTING THAT SPRINGBOARD! IMPACT LANDS IN THE RING AND HE LOOKS COMPLETELY OUT OF SORTS RIGHT NOW! IMPACT’S SPLASHING AROUND AND HOLDING HIS FACE! THE CROWD IS ELECTRIC!
Kawajai: Miles doesn’t waste any time going back on the offensive as he checks Voin with a flurry of mudhole stomps to his shoulder! Miles is trying to blow Voin’s shoulder of its socket and take him out of the matchup! Miles now looks to the ropes and springboards! SPRINGBOARD CHAINBREAKER! THE SPRINGBOARD DOUBLE KNEE DROP CONNECTS ON VOIN AND MILES IMMEDIATELY GOES FOR THE COVER WITH A SHOULDER OVER VOIN!
Ref: ONEEEEEE… TWOOOOOOOO…
WWEFan: And a powerful kickout by Voin! Miles thought he might’ve had him there, but Voin isn’t any ordinary elitist. He’s got hellfire in his eyes! Miles wrenches his arm around Voin’s neck and furiously connects with multiple closed-fist punches right under Voin’s eye! You can see blood trickling down, he’s cut, and now the referee is pleading for Miles to stop, but the man is simply relentless! Miles continues his onslaught until finally backing away and getting back up to his feet. Look at Voin! Look under his eye! His entire right eye is swollen, blood is streaming down his cheeks, and Miles is now playing to the crowd. This man is your hero?! They’re cheering for a man who just bloodied another human! Absolutely no regard for human life from Matt Miles, and now Y2Impact is up! Impact is up!
Kawajai: Impact is up and he charges violently at Miles! MILES TURNS AROUND! EVISCERATION! DOUBLE KNEE FACEBUSTER! NO! NO! MILES PUSHES IMPACT OFF OF HIM, IMPACT LANDS ON HIS FEET AND CHARGES FORWARD AGAIN FOR A CLOTHESLINE, BUT NOBODY’S HOME! MILES REVERSES AND HAS IMPACT IN A BACKSLIDE PINNING POSITION!
Ref: ONEEEEEE…. TWOOOO… THRR—
WWEFan: Impact kicks out at a near-three count! Miles almost won the EAW Championship there, but can you BELIEVE how good Matt Miles’ instincts must be to throw Impact down after he attempted that Evisceration, and ultimately put Impact on his back and get him on the defensive? Wow!
Kawajai: Both competitors are quickly back up to their feet and they’re trading blows with one another! Impact with a left to the face of Miles, and Miles with a right to Impact! AGAIN AND AGAIN! It comes to a halt as Impact knees Matt Miles in the gut, and now Impact has Miles in that powerbomb position! Impact hoists Miles up for the powerbomb, but Miles with the reversal uses his hand to push off Impact’s face and land back to a vertical base! AND MILES SMACKS IMPACT RIGHT IN THE MOUTH! You could hear the thud of that throughout the entire arena! And now Miles connects with a spinning kick that hits Impact in the midsection, followed by Miles corralling Impact’s neck and trying to plant him into the mat for the DDT, but Impact blocks it as he hooks his leg in-between Miles’ and now charges forward as Miles won’t release his grip on Impact’s neck, AND MILES IS SENT BACK-FIRST INTO THE ELECTRIFIED STEEL CAGE! A SHOCK IS SENT THROUGH THE SPINE OF MATT MILES AS HE WOBBLES BACK INTO THE RING LOOKING LIKE HE DOESN’T KNOW WHERE HE IS AS HE DROPS DOWN TO THE MAT!
WWEFan: The crowd just got so quiet you could hear a pin drop in the arena! They’re stunned, and so am I and my broadcast colleague Kawajai! NO TIME TO SIT AROUND! VOIN FROM BEHIND IMPACT GRABS HIS TIGHTS FOR THE PIN!!!
Ref: ONEEEEE… TWOOOOO… THRRR—
Kawajai: And Impact with the kickout! Voin just tried to take advantage as Impact was spending too much time admiring what he just did to Matt Miles! Both Voin and Impact are now fast back up to their feet as Impact charges forward at Voin for the Spinning Wheel Kick, but Voin ducks under it and darts off the ropes, meeting Impact in the middle of the ring with a Bicycle Kick! Impact is down right now, but he’s surprisingly managing to stir soon after the Bicycle Kick, he’s doing everything that it takes to win! Voin is in disbelief as Impact has half of his body up, AND NOW THE VENGEFUL UPBRINGING! THE SUPERKICK TO IMPACT RIGHT AS HE WAS TRYING TO GET BACK UP TO HIS FEET! IMPACT IS OUT OF IT AND VOIN QUICKLY SEES HIS OPPORTUNITY AS HE WRENCHED HIS ARM AROUND THE HEAD OF A DOWNED IMPACT! THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE! THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE IS APPLIED, AND VOIN IS ABSOLUTELY SUCKING THE LIFE OF IMPACT! IMPACT IS FADING RIGHT NOW, THE REFEREE IS ASKING HIM IF HE WANTS TO SUBMIT, BUT IMPACT DEFIANTLY REFUSES, WAVING OFF THE REFEREE! I’M NOT SURE HOW MUCH LONGER IMPACT IS GOING TO LAST IN THIS PREDICAMENT, AS VOIN YELLS AT THE REFEREE “CALL THE MATCH! CALL THE MATCH!” BUT THE REFEREE IS REFUSING!
WWEFan: THE REFERE HOLDS IMPACT’S ARM AND DROPS IT DOWN, BUT NOW IMPACT SEEMS TO HAVE CAUGHT A SECOND WIND AS HE’S FLAILING HIS ARM AROUND IN THE AIR, BUT COULD THIS MEAN HE’S ABOUT TAP? THE ONLY WAY TO WIN THE HIGH VOLTAGE MATCH IS THROUGH PIN OR SUBMISSION, AND VOIN IS DOING EVERYTHING HE POSSIBLY CAN TO MAKE SURE HE GETS THE LATTER! VOIN IS TIGHTENING THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE ON Y2IMPACT, SUFFOCATING HIM AS IMPACT’S FACE TURNS RED LIKE A TOMATO!
Kawajai: WAIT, WHAT THE HELL?! IMPACT IS LIFTING VOIN UP! I’VE NEVER SEEN SUCH STRENGTH FROM THE MACHINE, WHAT A COUNTER TO THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE, BUT WILL HE HAVE IT IN HIM TO SLAM VOIN DOWN AFTER BEING DRIVEN TO HIS BRINKING POINT IN THAT CHOKEHOLD?! IMPACT HAS VOIN ALL THE WAY UP, AND VOIN IS ABSOLUTELY REFUSING TO BREAK THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE ON IMPACT! HE’LL SACRIFICE ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING TO RETAIN HIS EAW CHAMPIONSHIP, AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE’S GOING TO NEED TO DO, BUT HERE’S MILES! MILES IS UP! AND NOW IMPACT CHARGES FORWARD WITH VOIN REFUSING TO BREAK WHAT IS NOW A STANDING GUILLOTINE CHOKE HOLD, AND IMPACT SLAMS VOIN RIGHT INTO MATT MILES! BOTH MEN ARE NOW BACKED AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE, MILES IS DAZED. IT LOOKED LIKE THE BACK OF VOIN’S HEAD COLLIDED WITH MILES’ HEAD, BOTH MEN MIGHT HAVE A CONCUSSION NOW!
WWEFan: But Impact can’t follow up on it! Impact is absolutely physically SPENT after reversing the Guillotine Choke Voin had applied tightly on him, and now he falls to one knee, sucking wind and trying desperately to regain his breath as soon as he can! Impact slowly gets back up to his feet as Matt Miles and Voin are both nestled against each other in the corner where the turnbuckles are. AND NOW IMPACT CHARGES FORWARD AGAIN! VOIN GETS OUT OF THE WAY, BUT MILES REMAINS IN NO MAN’S LAND AND IMPACT CONNECTS A LEAPING CORNER SPLASH TO MATT MILES! I HAVEN’T SEEN IMPACT USE THAT MOVE IN YEARS, A FLASHBACK TO HIS TIME AS THE NATIONAL EXTREME CHAMPION! BUT MATT MILES REMAINS ON HIS FEET AS HE LURCHES FORWARD WITH HIS BODY TILTED DOWN FROM THE WAIST-UP! AND NOW VOIN! VOIN! VOIN CONNECTS WITH THE KAISER’S CROWN ON MATT MILES! THE KAISER’S CROWN CURB STOMP CONNECTS ON MATT MILES AND HE’S LAID OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT RING, BUT IMPACT IS STILL BEHIND THE EAW CHAMPION!
Kawajai: AND VOIN TURNS AROUND! EVISCERATION! THE DOUBLE KNEE FACEBUSTER! IT CONNECTS THIS TIME AND BOTH VOIN AND MATT MILES ARE LAID OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, AND IT’S IMPACT’S CHOICE OF WHO TO PICK FOR THE PIN! IMPACT NOW DRAPES HIS SHOULDER OVER THE EAW CHAMPION! NEW CHAMPION!
Ref: ONEEEEEE… TWOOOOOOO…. THRRRR—
WWEFan: VOIN WITH A KICKOUT! THE EAW CHAMPION ISN’T READY TO LOST HIS TITLE JUST YET AS HE KICKS OUT ON WHAT MUST HAVE BEEN PURE ADRENALINE ALONE! IMPACT IS IN UTTER DISBELIEF AND SHOCK AS HE TURNS HIS HEAD OVER TO THE REFEREE SMACKING HIS HANDS TOGETHER IN FRUSTRATION, SIGNALING HE WANTED THAT THREE-COUNT! THE REFEREE BARKS BACK AT IMPACT WITH AN EXCHANGE OF WORDS BEFORE HE GOES OVER TO MATT MILES AND NOW HOOKS THE LEG OF THE MAN WITH THE MIDAS TOUCH!
Ref: ONEEEEEEE… TWOOOOOO…
Kawajai: AND A KICKOUT BY MATT MILES! NEITHER VOIN NOR MATT MILES WOULD GO DOWN, AND Y2IMPACT IS ABSOLUTELY LIVID! IMPACT GOES BACK ON THE OFFENSIVE WITH A SERIES OF STOMPS TO THE CHEST OF VOIN, AND YOU CAN HEAR THE SCREAMS OF AGONY IN VOIN’S VOICE! HE’S TAKEN ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING MILES AND IMPACT HAVE DISHED OUT, AND IMPACT JUST CONTINUES TO RELENTLESSLY BRING IT! IMPACT NOW GOES OVER TO MATT MILES AND HE’S SMACKING HIM IN THE FACE AS MILES IS HELPLESS TO DEFEND HIMSELF!
WWEFan: Impact now once again turns his attention over to Voin! Voin is dragging himself back up to his feet with every bit of strength in his body, and he’s clinging to Impact’s leg for support, dragging himself up as Impact looks down on Voin in a scene that looks straight out of cinema! Impact’s mouthing something at Voin but I can’t quite make out what he’s saying, and now he drags Voin back up to his feet! Voin looks a lifeless zombie right now after all the punishment he’s taken and dished out in the duration of this matchup, and Impact grabs him by the nape of his neck now, trotting over to the turnbuckle and pounding his face iN! NO! VOIN BLOCKS IT WITH HIS BOOT, AND NOW IMPACT’S ATTEMPTED PUNCH TO VOIN’S FACE IS BLOCKED! VOIN BLOCKS IT AND CONNECTS WITH A RIGHT HAND, AND NOW HAS IMPACT IN A WAISTLOCK! MILES IS UP! MILES IS FAST UP TO HIS FEET AND HAS A WAISTLOCK IN ON VOIN!
Kawajai: AND A SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX INTO THE ELECTRIFIED CAGE! Y2IMPACT IS SLAMMED INTO THE ELECTRIFIED CAGE WITH THE FORCE OF A BATTERING RAM, HE TOOK THE BRUNT OF IT, BUT ON THE FOLLOW THROUGH VOIN’S HEAD MAY HAVE BEEN SHOCKED AS WELL! WOW! MATT MILES JUST CAME OUTTA NOWHERE TO COMPLETE THE GERMAN SUPLEX TRIFECTA, AND MILES NOW HAS A LITTLE SPRING IN HIS STEP AS HE RISES TO HIS FEET ONCE MORE! MILES DRAGS IMPACT OVER TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE PIN! NEW CHAMPION!
Ref: ONEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOO… THRRR—
WWEFan: AND VOIN WITH A DIVING FOREARM SMASH TO THE BACK OF MATT MILES, BREAKING UP THE PIN AT THE LAST MILLISECOND TO PREVENT A NEW CHAMPION FROM BEING CROWNED! VOIN ISN’T GOING TO RELINQUISH HIS THRONE THAT EASILY! MILES TURNS AROUND AND SEES VOIN, AND THESE TWO MEN HAVE NO LOVE LOST OR FOUND BETWEEN THEM! THEY RISE TO THEIR FEET AND ONCE AGAIN BEGIN TRADING A SERIES OF PUNCHES, MILES GAINING THE UPPER HAND AS VOIN STAGGERS BACK, AND NOW MILES WITH A SWINGING NECKBREAKER! NO! VOIN SPINS OUT OF THE NECKBREAKER AND ON THE REBOUND WRENCHES IN MATT MILES! SIDEWALK SLAM!
Kawajai: Aren Mstislav prides himself on having a great defensive, but when he channels Voin he leans more toward the offensive side of the spectrum! Voin just showed Matt Miles what it’s like to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Voin quickly rises as Matt Miles does everything within his powers to get back to his feet as well. Miles is half of the way up, but Voin charges at him with the running knee! THE RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE CONNECTS ON MATT MILES, AND HE’S DAZED! I THINK I MAY HAVE SEEN A TOOTH FLYING OUT RIGHT THERE, FAN! VOIN DRAGS MATT MILES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND HOOKS AN ARM OVER HIS SHOULDER, HOISTING HIM UP IN THE AIR FOR WHAT LOOKS TO BE A DELAYED VERTICAL SUPLEX! STILL SO MUCH STRENGTH AFTER EVERYTHING THAT’S HAPPENED THUS FAR, THIS MAN IS THE CHAMPION FOR A REASON! AND VOIN TAKES DOWN MATT MILES — NO! MILES LANDS ON HIS FEET, BUT VOIN IS TOO BUSY PATTING HIMSELF ON THE BACK TO NOTICE! VOIN FINALLY TURNS AROUND AND IS MET BY A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION FROM MILES! AND MILES FOLLOWS IT UP, HOOKING VOIN IN FOR THE MIDAS TOUCH! THE SNAP SINGLE UNDERHOOK FACEBUSTER CONNECTS AND THE CROWD IS ABSOLUTELY LOVING IT! THEY’RE ALL IN WITH MATT MILES, AND IMPACT CONTINUES TO JUST LAY MOTIONLESSLY ON THE GROUND NEAR THE CORNER. THIS IS MILES’ CHANCE!
WWEFan: But what’s this?! Instead of going for the cover, Matt Miles is taking Voin back up to his feet again! Voin’s wrenched in by Miles into that Snap Single Underhook Facebuster position again! AND MILES ONCE AGAIN CONNECTS WITH THE MIDAS TOUCH! MSTISLAV — VOIN — IS DOWN A SECOND TIME, AND HE’S GOING TO NEED TO CHANNEL EVERY LAST BIT OF ENERGY IN HIS BODY TO HAVE A HOPE OF KICKING OUT NOW! MILES HOOKS THE LEG, AND IT’S GOTTA BE BALLGAME!
Ref: ONEEEEE… TWOOOOOOO… THRRRRR——
Kawajai: AND IMPACT SLINGSHOTS HIMSELF TO BREAK UP THE PIN! BUT WAS IT THREE?!?! NO, THE REFEREE IS WAVING IT OFF, SAYING IT WASN’T A THREE COUNT AS IMPACT BROKE IT UP JUUUST IN TIME, AND THIS MATCH WILL CONTINUE! WOW! THE ENTIRE CROWD WAS CHANTING TO THE THREE COUNT IN UNISON, BUT IMPACT SAVED HIS CHAMPIONSHIP HOPES JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME, POSSIBLY DASHING MATT MILES’ OWN IN THE PROCESS!
WWEFan: You have to think that maybe if Miles capitalized after connecting with The Midas Touch the first time, Impact wouldn’t have been allowed the necessary time to recuperate and this match could very well have been over! Prolonging it and trying to ensure his victory may ultimately come back to haunt Matt Miles.
Kawajai: But Impact is still exhausted! It very well may have taken everything out of him just to break up that pin after being German Suplexed into the Electrified Cage with the force of two men behind it! Both Miles and Impact are up to their feet while Voin lays lifelessly on the ring mat, but Miles appears to have far more energy than Impact! Miles is furious with Impact as he broke up what would have been a pin and an EAW Championship victory, and Miles is absolutely letting Impact have it, connecting with just about every forearm and punch he swings in Impact’s direction! Impact is powerless to defend himself as he staggers back against the corner and up against the turnbuckles, but Miles isn’t relenting as he climbs to the second rope while Impact is caught up against those turnbuckles, and now pounds his fists away into the face of Impact, all of them closed! The referee can’t do anything about it inside this High Voltage match, but would Impact have it any other way? He’s the self-proclaimed “Last Extremist,” this may be exactly the kind of circumstance he wants to find himself in! Miles continues punching Impact and the crowd is counting for each punch he delivers! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! NO! IMPACT WITH A HEADBUTT TO THE GROIN! I THINK THAT MAY HAVE CAUGHT MILES IN THE NETHER REGIONS, BUT WHAT A SAVVY MOVE BY THE MACHINE! BEFORE MILES CAN FALL DOWN, IMPACT QUICKLY HOISTS HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS! POWERBOMB! IMPACT POWERBOMBS MATT MILES UP AGAINST THE ELECTRIFIED STEEL CAGE, AND MATT MILES HAS A SHOCK SENT ALL THROUGHOUT HIS SPINE AS HE DROPS IN THE RING AND ROLLS AROUND AGONIZING IN PAIN! WOW!
WWEFan: That tactic Impact just pulled is straight out of the extreme rulebook! Anything goes, everything is permitted, nothing is sacred! Wow! And now Impact’s walking over to Voin, still laying around having not moved a muscle after taking two Midas Touch Single Underhook Facebusters from Matt Miles earlier! You’d think Impact would go after Matt Miles after he crashed into the Electrified Steel Cage, but he’s turning his attention over to the EAW Champion, and now he hooks the leg for a cover!
Ref: ONEEEEEE… TWOOOOOOOO…. THRRRRR—
Kawajai: Voin somehow, some way manages to kick out! Voin had an extended period of time to recover from the two Midas Touch finishers he took from Matt Miles earlier, but anybody able to bounce back from those within a relatively short span has to have some kind of otherworldly resiliency! His toughness and perseverance CAN’T be questioned. That’s why Aren Mstislav has been the EAW Champion for over six months and running now, because no matter the case, the man simply doesn’t quit! But he may be in his last moments as champion now as this man Voin squares off with The Machine Y2Impact! Impact has to be wondering what more he has to do to put away one of these two wrestlers, and now he drags Voin back up to his feet with what has to be all of the strength remaining his body. Impact’s got Voin in that double underhook position, and he looks like he’s going for something BIG here. Impact’s still taking some time to set this move up, turning his head at each end of the crowd who boo him in unison from every corner… Could he be going for that Flashpoint?! The Double Underhook Facebuster? Essentially what amounts to a Super Evisceration!
WWEFan: AND IMPACT HAS VOIN UP IN THE AIR FOR THE FLASHPOINT DOUBLE UNDERHOOK FACEBUSTER, BUT VOIN! VOIN! VOIN FINDS HIS WAY OUT OF IT, PUSHING HIS BODY FORWARD AS IMPACT HELD HIM UP IN MID-AIR, LANDING ON HIS FEET AND SENDING IMPACT TUMBLING DOWN ON HIS BACK! MILES IS BACK TO HIS FEET AND HE’S GOT A CLEAR VIEW OF VOIN, DASHING TOWARD HIM AND CONNECTING WITH THE ROYAL JUDGEMENT! VOIN FALLS VICTIM TO HIS OWN MOVE, THE RUNNING CHARGING UPPERCUT, AS HE’S ABSOLUTELY LAID OUT BY MILES — POSSIBLY UNCONSCIOUS!
Kawajai: AND NOW IMPACT! IMPACT IS BACK UP ONCE AGAIN, BUT MILES HAS HIM BY THE NAPE OF HIS NECK — NO! — IMPACT REVERSES IT AND THROWS MILES HEAD-FIRST INTO THE ELECTRIFIED STEEL CAGE! OH MY GOD! IMPACT BASHES MILES’ HEAD STRAIGHT THROUGH THE ELECTRIFIED STEEL CAGE, AND MILES IS ABSOLUTELY LAID OUT! MILES ISN’T MOVING A MUSCLE, HE’S BEEN ELECTROCUTED! THE FORCE OF THAT THROW AND THE COLLISION BROKE THROUGH A PIECE OF THE STEEL CAGE! THERE’S A HEAD-SIZED HOLE IN THE ELECTRIFIED STEEL CAGE WITH MATT MILES THROUGH IT, AND HIS EYES ARE CLOSED SHUT! AND NOW IMPACT SEES VOIN LAID OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AFTER MILES USED HIS OWN FINISHER AGAINST HIM, AND IMPACT ONCE AGAIN SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES! LIONSAULT TO FINISH THIS UP!
WWEFan: KNEES UP! VOIN CAUGHT IMPACT AND GOT HIS KNEES UP SOMEHOW, WOW! SUPERHUMAN AWARENESS FROM VOIN, IMPACT WITH A REVERSAL OF HIS OWN AS HE LATCHES ONTO THE LEGS OF VOIN, NOT ALLOWING VOIN TO CATCH HIM IN THE RIBS, AND NOW HE’S TURNING HIM OVER! IMPACT IS TURNING VOIN OVER FOR THE WALLS OF IMPACT! AND HE’S GOT HIM, HE’S TWISTED HIM ALL THE WAY AROUND AND IMPACT HAS THE WALLS TIGHTLY APPLIED TO VOIN! THE REFEREE IS ASKING VOIN IF HE WANTS TO TAP OUT, BUT HE’S SCREAMING! VOIN IS SCREAMING, REFUSING TO TAP OUT, REFUSING TO GIVE UP, AND NOW HE’S DRAGGING HIMSELF OVER TO THE ROPES, BUT THAT’S NOT GOING TO DO MUCH GOOD I’M AFRAID! THERE ARE NO ROPE BREAKS IN A HIGH VOLTAGE MATCH!
Kawajai: VOIN’S INCHING CLOSER, BUT I DON’T KNOW WHERE HE’S GOING — AND NOW IMPACT DRAGS VOIN ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! VOIN IS SCREAMING IN AGONY, MILES HASN’T MOVED A MUSCLE, HIS HEAD STILL LODGED IN THE ELECTRIFIED CAGE. VOIN’S WAVING HIS ARM IN THE AIR, FLAILING IT ABOUT, AND HE’S GONNA TAP! NO! HE PULLS HIS HAND BACK UP, HE REFUSES TO SUBMIT! NEVER SAY DIE!
WWEFan: VOIN WITH THE LAST BIT OF STRENGTH IN HIS BODY USES HIS LEG MUSCLES TO PROPEL IMPACT OFF OF HIM AND INTO THE ELECTRIFIED CAGE, BUT INSTEAD OF THE ELECTRIFIED CAGE, IMPACT LANDS INTO MATT MILES! VOIN THINKS IMPACT HAS BEEN ELECTROCUTED AND HE’S SLOWLY MARCHING BACK UP TO HIS FEET NOT KNOWING THAT IMPACT IS RIGHT BEHIND HIM! VOIN IS UP!
Kawajai: EVISCERATION! THE EVISCERATION CONNECTS ON VOIN AND IMPACT HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE PIN, MILES HELPLESS TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT! NO! NO!
Ref: ONEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOOO…. THRRRRR——
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Goodbye” by Kid Cudi hits as Impact falls to one knee, unable to stand up of his own power after what went down in the High Voltage match, the referee raising his arm in victory. The Electrified Steel Cage descends back up to the rafters as Impact is handed the EAW Championship from the timekeeper’s section…)
Kawajai: NO! NO! IT JUST CAN’T BE!
WWEFan: HAHAHAHAHA!!! IMPACT DID IT! IMPACT DID IT! SEVEN REIGNS! THIS CROWD IS SILENT, AND I LOVE IT!
Ring Announcer: The winner of this match… AND NEWWWWWWWWW EAW CHAMPIONNNNNNN…. Y!!!!! 2!!!!!!! IMPAAAAAAACTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Y2Impact drops to both knees as he’s handed the title, holding it in both arms and kissing it in complete unbridled jubilation. Impact smiles as the capacity crowd commences throwing trash into the ring. Matt Miles is given assistance from medical personnel while Voin is being tended to as well)
WWEFan: IT’S HAPPENED! IT’S FINALLY HAPPENED! THREE YEARS REMOVED FROM HIS LAST WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN, ALL THE MISCUES, SETBACKS… AND Y2IMPACT IS YOUR NEW EAW CHAMPION! SEVEN REIGNS!
Kawajai: THIS IS AN ATROCITY! There are no words. Aren Mstislav was the EAW Champion for six months, beating anybody and everybody in his path. Impact somehow escapes with the title!
WWEFan: You better respect your new champion, Kawa!
(Impact is now seen walking out of the ring, holding the EAW Championship high above his head and pointing at each section of the audience yelling at the top of his lungs “YOU SAID I COULDN’T DO IT!” “YOU ALL SAID I COULDN’T DO IT!” as he makes his way to the top of the ramp, turning his back one more time and holding the EAW Championship high above his head with his right arm before walking to the back)
