“Lost In The Moment”
( EAW Intro plays )
( There is no Voltage intro, instead we cut open to the Webster Bank Arena where the raucous audience is filled to the rafters, making tons of noise and buzzing in excitement for the show. )
Nick Angel: WE ARE LIVE IN THE SOLD OUT WEBSTER BANK ARENA IN BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT! HELLO EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE ON FX! TONIGHT WE’VE GOT CARLOS AND RYAN WILSON IN A STREET FIGHT, FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD TAKING ON REVENANT IN A NEW BREED TITLE, STEEL CAGE MAIN EVENT AND SO MUCH MORE BUT BEFORE ALL OF THAT WE’RE STARTING ON A MAJJJJOOOORRR HIGH NOTE!
( “Icon” by Jaden Smith plays, and the fans all simultaneously jump to their feet in a roar of applause. )
( Smoke billows from the stage, and soon after Mr. DEDEDE rushes out through the smoke to an even LOUDER response from his hometown audience. He embraces the energy of the fans, pounding on his chest and looking out to the crowd while sporting his Newaza Deep Space Rashguard attire. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is set for ONE FALL! Introducing first, making his way to the ring, he is BRIDGEPORT’S OWN… MMMIIISTEEEEEEEEER DEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
( DDD embraces as many fans as he can walking to the ring, and the ovation from the crowd does not cease during his entrance as he’s busy hi fiving fans, kissing babies and taking photo ops. )
Kawajai: BRIDGEPORT HAS OFFICIALLY BECOME GAWD COUNTRY! We are completely sold out in this 10,000 seat arena, and despite a momentous Voltage we’ve got in the cards for tonight, I’m pretty sure it didn’t take much more than the announcement of this man to immediately fill up this this place! My god what a reaction!
Nick Angel: I can barely hear what you’re saying Kawa! I mean that’s usual during a DDD entrance but this place is losing their minds over The Gawd!
Kawajai: Well it’s to be expected, these are after all his original stomping grounds. Mr. DEDEDE has come ready to compete this evening after making his intentions known, he plans on getting back into the fray of competition and outdoing as many people as he can. We’ve got an exciting event planned this evening – including a STEEL CAGE bout that will pit the defending Champ, Finnegan Wakefield, up against a man who just got to share the ring against Mr. DEDEDE last week, The Revenant!
Nick Angel: We’ve also got the returning former EAW Champion, Mstislav, who will address the EAW Universe regarding his appearance and his actions last week – and it is highly anticipated as well that Ryan Marx himself plans on an emphatic response.
( We cut back to ringside where DDD is posing for a selfie with himself and his niece, Veena Adams, as well as several other relatives who are seated at ringside. DDD rushes back into the ring and throws up his signature corna taunt to the joyful crowd. His music dies down, and the fans continue chanting his name as he soaks in the love and support. )
( “Don’t Be Nice” by Watsky plays, and Ahren Fournier walks out with a look of disdain on his face as he comes equipped with a microphone in hand. )
Rebecca Sawyer: And his opponent, from Pawtucket, Rhode Island weighing in at 210 POUNDS…. AHHHHRENNNNNNN FOURNNNII–
Ahren Fournier: SHUT UP, SHUT UP, SHUT UP. SHUT YOUR MOUTH. SHUT THE MUSIC OFF.
( Ahren walks slowly to the ring, and the crowd gives him a negative response before he continues. )
Ahren Fournier: It’s disgusting. Truly disgusting. It makes me sick, all of you people make me sick! It makes me sick how a decrepit old bastard like Mr. DEDEDE can sit in his ivory tower down in New Jersey.. and all of a sudden he decides he wants to play dress up and drag his old ass out here to feed his ego, and still gets heralded by you sycophants – you SHEEP! YOU’RE ALL WORTHLESS!
( The fans continue to rain down upon Ahren with boos. DDD stands by in the ring with a smirk on his face. )
Ahren: AWWWW “BOOO, BOOOOOOO!” I’m out here casually putting the rest of this roster to shame, and I came just inches away from winning it all against Jamie O’Hara – a man who I know for a FACT I’m better than! But as usual you morons root for the liars, the pretenders, the frauds, when none of these people are your heroes. You can’t let go of your precious little golden calf like Mr. DEDEDE even though the guy is 90 years old, and is one kneebar away from having his whole career ended by little old me. Wrestling fans are an EMBARRASSMENT, you’ll always be stuck in the past because you’re too busy overlooking the future!
( Ahren steps up to the apron, steps through the ropes and enters the ring. )
Ahren: And as for you “Mr. Adams”, if you knew what’s good for you you’d make way for the future… and get the hell out of my ring right now.
( DDD pretends to ponder Ahren’s request, and the fans are chanting “No!” )
Nick Angel: DEDEDE JUST SLAPPED THE TASTE OUT OF HIS MOUTH!!!! THAT STUNS AHREN! THIS WHOLE PLACE JUST EXPLODED AFTER THAT!
( DDD orders the ref to ring the bell, and the ref obliges to his request. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Kawajai: Ahren Fournier just got panhandled, and that definitely had to piss him off there! Ahren rushes right back at DDD for a right hand, DDD blocks it and delivers a series of strikes, including a left that tags him and sends Ahren reeling into the ropes – only for DDD to follow up with a series of body shots! Swipe by Ahren is ducked by DDD and DDD takes him across the ring with an Irish whip – only to bring a rebounding Ahren to the mat with a leaping forearm! Ahren recovers, another forearm! Ahren gets back up quickly and DDD takes him by the head just to sling Ahren through the ropes and dump him out of the ring! DDD seems to verbalize something to the effect of how it’s “his ring”, referring back to that last comment by Ahren right before this match started! Fournier rushes back into the ring, and DDD sends him RIGHT BACK OUT OF THE RING, TAKING HIM BY THE HEAD AND DUMPING HIM OUT THE EXACT SAME WAY!
Nick Angel: That’s pissed him off! Ahren rushes back up to his feet slapping his hands on the ring apron, kicking the ring steps and cursing at the taunting Bridgeport fans in the front row! Ahren’s clearly got some pent up aggression. I don’t blame him for being bitter over the loss to Jamie and perhaps a feeling of being overlooked by the fans, but I can say with personal experience that if you try to rush into a match with DDD bullheaded you will not like the end result.
Kawajai: You and I certainly have both personally experienced that, Nick! Ahren slowly rolls into the ring, and he and DDD slowly circle the ring with Ahren in particular looking for any opening he can find…. and he rushes for the right leg! DDD looks to send some low elbows to the head of Fournier, but Ahren manages to lift the leg and hit a QUAD KICK! He follows up with a shoot kick to the other leg, with has DDD turned away from him holding his thigh, and Ahren fires off with a stiff forearm! DDD goes stumbling over to the corner, where Ahren rushes right over and hits a STIFFFF RUNNING RIGHT HAND, DAMN NEAR LEAVING AN IMPACT CRATER ON THE SIDE OF DDD’S FACE! That may have tagged him, DDD drops to the mat and Ahren follows up with a swift cover!
Nick Angel: Swift, but brief cover – DDD shoots the shoulder up after one. Ahren returns to his feet and delivers a few well placed stomps, trying to slow down DDD’s recover. Now he hits a swift kick to the arm, which has DDD clutching at his right shoulder despite returning to his feet. Now Ahren follows up with a NICE ENZUIGIRI TO THAT RIGHT SHOULDER! That one sends DDD back to the ground, and Ahren watches his opponent recover while bad mouthing him – definitely stuff we wouldn’t wanna repeat on national television. DDD’s laying on his side, and AHREN HITS A RUNNING PUNT KICK TO THE RIGHT SHOULDER YET AGAIN! DDD’s favoring that right shoulder and he rolls to the ropes… there may perhaps be an opening for Fournier if he can capitalize on it.
Kawajai: It certainly wouldn’t hurt for him to try. Ahren follows up trying to drag DDD up, but he only half assed it before resorting to a stiff barrage of punches while DDD’s leaned against the ropes! The official gets in between, urging Fournier to back away and allow his opponent to get out of the ropes. Now Ahren charges back at DDD, only for DDD to lift a boot to the face! DDD positions himself in the corner, but Ahren charges AT THE CORNER DDD – ONLY FOR DDD TO EVASIVE COMBAT ROLL PAST HIM! DDD COMBAT ROLLS BACK TO HIS FEET AND CHARGES TO THE ROPES IN FRONT OF HIM, REBOUNDS OFF OF THAT AND FOLLOWS AHREN WITH A CORKSCREW JUMPING BACK ELBOW, WITH THE LEFT ELBOW! That’s got Ahren rolling under the ropes and dropping down to ringside… DDD on the ground turns to the audience and nods his head before rolling over to the apron himself, and using the ropes to pull himself back up before waiting on Ahren to recover…………
Nick Angel: AND WHEN HE DOES, DDD SOMERSAULTS OFF THE APRON FOR THE SENTON NECKBREAKER!!!! BEAUTIFULLY EXECUTED, ALTHOUGH IT’S GOT DDD FAVORING HIS RIGHT SHOULDER, POSSIBLY WORSENING THE EXISTING DAMAGE TO THAT AREA! Regardless the fans loved it, and DDD’s back up hi-fiving a girl and her mom wearing his t-shirts!
Ref: 1! 2!
Nick Angel: DDD pulls Ahren back up to get him back in the ring, but Ahren hits a big uppercut in response to cut him off! DDD cocks back to throw a right hand, but Ahren cuts him off with a knee to the midsection! Now Ahren takes DDD BY THE HEAD AND RUNS HIM AROUND ONE OF THE RING POSTS, SENDING HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE WITH AUTHORITY!!! NOW AHREN UNLEASHES A FLURRY OF STOMPS TO THE GROUNDED MR. DEDEDE, AND I MEAN THOSE ARE SOME BRUTAL SHOTS! AND HE’S DOING IT RIGHT IN FRONT OF DDD’S FAMILY MEMBERS AS WELL!
Ref: 6! 7!
( Ahren rolls himself into the ring, but then rolls himself back out of the ring. )
Kawajai: Ahren’s definitely not relenting on this attack just yet, he straightens DDD up and hits him with a EUROPEAN UPPERCUT, SENDING HIM FALLING BACK OVER THE BARRICADE ALMOST INTO THE LAP OF SOME OF HIS RELATIVES! HOWEVER AHREN DRAGS DDD BACK INTO HIS CLUTCHES, SETS HIS SIGHT ON THE RING STEPS, AND SENDS DDD WITH ALL HE HAS CRASHING SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STEEL RING STEPS!!!! HE HIT THOSE STAIRS HARD, AND NOW AHREN RETURNS TO THE RING WHERE HE ORDERS THE REF TO START HIS COUNT!
Ref: 1! 2! 3!
Nick Angel: Not a good situation for The Gawd, and these Bridgeport fans know it. DDD’s hardly able to stir here, there may be a chance he doesn’t even make it back in by the count of ten!
Ref: 4! 5! 6!
( DDD uses the ring apron to help drag himself up. )
Ref: 7! 8!
( DDD grips around the bottom rope, and drags himself into the ring sluggishly using the ropes. )
Kawajai: Ahren Fournier pulls Mr. DEDEDE back up perhaps looking for a decisive blow here — BUT DDD MANAGES TO SLING AHREN’S ARM OVER HIS SHOULDER, AND IS LOOKING FOR THE GRAND SLAM!!!!!! GRAND SLAM!!!! BUT AHREN HAMMERS BLOWS OVER THE OBVIOUSLY DAMAGED RIGHT SHOULDER, BREAKING IT UP! This audience jumped to their feet as soon as it looked like DDD was about to send this match home, but now Ahren applies a wristlock on the right arm and hits a JUMPING KNEE TO THAT LOCKED UP RIGHT ARM! DDD stands his ground, although barely! Ahren comes back at him, and DDD FIRES OFF IN REBELLION WITH LEFT HAND KNIFE EDGE CHOPS, LIGHTING UP THE CHEST OF FOURNIER! Those blows are holding Ahren off from any offense for now, but it may very well be a form of offensive filibustering on DDD’s part, because he’s running out of answers fast! DDD finishes off a set of ridiculously loud chops to the chest but ducking a wild swipe from Ahren, and snatching the arm for an Irish whip — but Fournier reverses the whip — WITH THE CLIMAX!!! RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW!!! THAT SENDS DDD SPINNING AROUND AND DROPPING TO HIS KNEE, AND FOURNIER FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A BRUTAL KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!! GET F*CKED CONNECTS!!!! THERE’S A COVER NOW!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Nick Angel: Mr. DEDEDE still has it in him to kick out! Ahren is giving it absolutely everything he has, and a win against Mr. DEDEDE would clearly put him back into World Title contention – especially if he manages to do it in DDD’s hometown! Ahren wraps his hand around one of the ropes and is just scowling, waiting for DDD to push himself back up to a vertical base. Sweat drops from DDD’s face to the mat below him, and he straightens himself up before turning around ….. INTO THE PROTECT YA NECK!!!!!!!!!!!! CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL DECAPITATING DDD!!!! NO DDD SOMEHOW MANAGES TO BACKBEND UNDERNEATH THE ARM, AND ROLL AHREN UP FROM BEHIND WITH THE CRAFTY SCHOOLBOY ROLL UP! WHAT A COUNTER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Kawajai: AHREN FRANTICALLY KICKS OUT! HE ROLLS BACKWARDS AND SCRAMBLES UP TO HIS FEET – BUT INSTEAD FEEDS HIMSELF INTO THE IMPALER!!!! THAT DRILLS AHREN HEAD FIRST INTO THE MAT, AND DDD GRABS A HOOK OF THE KNEE PAD FOR THE WIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Nick Angel: NOT YET! AHREN KICKS OUT AT TWO! Mr. DEDEDE is on survival mode, which is a dangerous place to force DDD into, because that’s when he starts to get crafty and come up with new angles to hit you from… although right now it looks like DDD’s about to go back to the well, he’s crawling to an all too familiar place, which sends a jolt of energy into this crowd, because DDD is IN THAT KNEELING POSITION RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE TURNBUCKLE ….. AHREN FOURNIER MIGHT BE A BIT TOO DAZED TO REALIZE WHAT’S GOING ON, BUT DDD’S GOT THAT BURNING FIRE IGNITED IN HIS EYES, AND HE’S SHOWING HIS FANGS TO MATCH! BEFORE WE KNOW IT AHREN IS BACK UP, AND HE TURNS AROUND…. INTO THE SPEEEEEEEEAR!!!!
Kawajai: AHREN CUTS HIM OFF WITH A KICK TO THE FACE!!! THAT STUNS HIM, THAT’S STUNNED DDD, AND AHREN REDIRECTS ALL OF THE ENERGY AND MOMENTUM BY SENDING DDD THROUGH THE CORNER, SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS!!!! AND AHREN FOLLOWS UP, STACKING DDD ONTO HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE PIN – AND HE’S GOT HIS FEET PROPPED UP ON THE ROPES FOR SUPPORT!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Nick Angel: AHREN GETS UP TO CELEBRATE, BUT THE REFEREE WAVES OFF THE CALL! The official saw Ahren with his feet on the ropes! Some of these fans damn near had a panic attack, but the crowd rejoices in knowing that the call has been waved! Ahren is fuming by that no-call, and that may have gotten Ahren the win 4-5 years ago but it’s completely against the rules to use any type of rope support for a pinfall now. Fournier has had an excellent match so far, but only the win can truly validate this performance. DDD’s on one knee holding that badly damaged shoulder, and without strength in that right shoulder you take away a lot of power behind some of the most effective moves in his arsenal. Fournier hooks DDD up and delivers a vertical snap suplex! Forunier follows up by rolling through … and DELIVERS A MICHINOKU DRIVER, INTO THE CROSS ARMBREAKER!!!! BUT DDD CLAPS HIS ARMS TOGETHER, REFUUUUUSING TO ALLOW AHREN TO COMPLETE THAT SUBMISSION HOLD! DDD HAS ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE TO GO SHOULD AHREN BREAK THAT GRIP, AND AHREN WANTS TO YANK BACK THAT RIGHT ARM SO BADLY TO PUT THIS MATCH TO A FINISH, BUT DDD IS HANGING ON WITH HIS LIFE!
Kawajai: AHREN USES HIS RIGHT ARM TO BEAT DOWN ON THAT RIGHT SHOULDER, BUT AHREN MAKES THE MISTAKE OF BEING CAUGHT OFF GUARD AND DDD MANAGES TO TURN HIMSELF IN A WAY WHERE HE CAN STACK AHREN ONTO HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE PIN! ALL OF HIS BODY WEIGHT APPLIED!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Nick Angel: AHREN ADJUSTS!!! HE SNATCHES THE RIGHT ARM AND ROLLS ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD TO TAKE DDD ONTO HIS BACK — AND CATCHES HIM IN THE CROSS ARMBAR!!! BUT MR. DEDEDE SEEMED TO HAVE THAT SCOUTED THE WHOLE TIME, BECAUSE HE’S LANDED WITHIN RANGE OF THE BOTTOM ROPE, AND HE USES HIS FREE LEFT HAND TO GRAB THE BOTTOM ROPE!!! AHREN CAN DO NOTHING BUT PULL BACK AT THAT ARM, BUT THE HOLD IS NULL AND VOID!
Ref: HE’S ON THE ROPES LET GO! 1! 2! 3! 4!
Kawajai: Ahren Fournier begrudgingly releases the hold! Ahren sits there seething, cursing the fact that he had DDD right where he wanted him – but I guess in all actuality he didn’t, because even while he had the proper submission applied, the ring placement was his folly. Ahren’s going to have to follow up now, and he’s got his hands around DDD’s head aggressively trying to pull him up… and DDD sends a shot to the midsection in defiance! AHREN FOLLOWS UP WITH A BRUTAL KNEE TO THE FACE! Now Ahren drags Mr. DEDEDE back up and sends him across the ring with an Irish whip! But DDD doesn’t rebound, he holds himself to the ropes, and Ahren comes sprinting across the ring, only for DDD to pop him up and over to the outside! Ahren manages to land on the apron, and BANG!!!! MR. DEDEDE DELIVERS A FEROCIOUS SPINNING BACKFIST THAT’S GOT AHREN COLLAPSING DOWN ON THE APRON HERE IN FRONT OF US! Ahren’s got a glazed over look in his eye, but it doesn’t look like his lights are out just yet! DDD on the other hand crawls to the center of the ring looking to gain some space, and Ahren drags himself back up to his feet on the apron using the ropes as his saving grace…………. OH MY GOD!!!! LOOK OUT!!!!
Nick Angel: SPEEEEEEEEEEEEARRRRRRRRRRR!!!! DDD SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING AND SENDS AHREN FLYING OFF THE APRON, SMACKING FACE FIRST INTO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE WITH THE SPEAR!!!!!!!!!!! DDD USING HIMSELF LIKE A BATTERING RAM, UNLEASHING EVERYTHING HE HAD, AND SACRIFICING THAT SHOULDER TO DELIVER THAT LAST DITCH SHOT! DDD’S FLAT ON HIS BACK LAID OUT, BUT AHREN’S AT RINGSIDE MORE THAN LIKELY UNCONSCIOUS!
Ref! 1!!! .. 2!!! … 3!!! … 4!!! .. 5!! … 6!! 7!!! 8!!!
( Ahren can hardly stir. )
Ref: 9!!! 10!!! RING THE BELL!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( The fans jump to their feet as “Icon” by Jaden Smith plays, and DDD receives a big ovation from his hometown crowd as the referee raises his arm, and he throws up a limp corna taunt with his free arm. )
Rebecca Sawyer: Here is your winner by count out, MISTERRRRRR DEDEDEEEEEEE!!!
Kawajai: It was a knock down drag out fight, probably more contentious than anybody expected, but the Elitist of the Decade pulled out the necessary stops to contain Ahren Fournier and come away with the victory!
Nick Angel: Keyword “contain”, which says a whole heck of a lot about Ahren, who no doubt is in the run of his young career thus far! To be able to hold your own against the perennial and arguably the cornerstone of our very sport – that’s a place most athletes can only dream to be in!
( Mr. DEDEDE shakes off the cobwebs of pain and throws both arms up into the air for the corna taunt. He blows a kiss out to the crowd, and turns around …. )
Kawajai: WHAT THE HELL!!!! WHAT THE HELL!!! LOOK OUT!!!!
Nick Angel: AHREN FOURNIER RUSHES AT DDD WITH THE RING BELL IN HIS HANDS!!!! AHREN DRIVES THE RINGBELL OVER THE SKULL OF MR. DEDEDE!!!!! OH DEAR LORD!!!!!
Kawajai: HOLY HELL DID YOU HEAR THAT SOUND?? WE’RE GONNA NEED SOME HELP OUT HERE NOW!
( DDD’s theme music cuts off. Blood comes rushing out of DDD’s head and covers his face and torso with a coat of blood, and officials rush into the ring as Ahren stands over Mr. DEDEDE’s unconscious body. )
Nick Angel: AHREN FOURNIER HAS LEFT THE CHAIRMAN LAYING IN A BLOODY HEAP! THIS CROWD IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIED BY WHAT THEY JUST SAW! YOU NEED TO SEE THAT AGAIN, LOOK AT THE IMPACT, LISTEN TO THE SOUND….
( A replay shows Ahren Fournier driving the ring bell over Mr. DEDEDE’s head, with slow-mo on the impact of the bell hitting DDD’s head. We cut back to the show where Ahren is down at the bottom of the ramp, looking back at the ring with no remorse. A few members of DDD’s family rush into the ring to check on him, and officials join in to tend to his wounds. Ahren shrugs his shoulders on the ramp, showing no regret at all for his actions. )
Kawajai: This whole arena is in a stupor, I don’t remember the last time I’ve seen a crowd looking so horrified! Just what has Ahren done?
(AD: Coming Soon to the Food Network: “That’s Delicious” with Finnegan Wakefield! Tune in as he samples all of America’s top fast food cuisine.)
(The crowd is lively all abuzz from the previous events. Suddenly the lights go out. Ominous chanting starts to fill the speakers. The ramp and stage lights start pulsing a deep red color as smoke surrounds the ring. The chants stop as “Crushed” by Parkway Drive starts to play. The Lights are still dim but spotlights center onto the stage with Mstislav sitting on the ramp. He slowly gets up and makes his way down to the ring.)
Nick Angel: This energy. By god.
Kawajai: Menacing yes, but don’t shit yourself yet Angel, because this is just vintage Mstislav. The world has been abuzz with the murmurs of why, the why of his return and the why of his targeting of Ryan Marx.
Nick Angel: Yeah while we got answers as to who was attacking Marx, we never understood why hopefully Mstislav is here to shed some light.
(Mstislav is given a mic and he sits in the middle of the ring, the lights still dim and spotlight on him.)
Mstislav: You wonder. I’ve heard the whispers, and the concerns of my actions. None of it being that you are concerned for my return though. And that’s where I want to start tonight. You see since Territorial Invasion I’ve had so much time to think. So much time to wonder how to reinvent myself, how to make myself something new yet the same as I once was. And many months passed, before finally, my ideas started to talk back. You see Aren was weak, he was blind, he was a glory hound, and when he finally met his match he knew he had to leave before it got worse.
(Mstislav stands up and goes to lean against the ropes of the ring, pointing towards the audience.)
Mstislav: He saw it in your eyes. He heard it from your voices. You all were turning on him. And it drove him crazy. Crazy enough to where he became weak. But let me tell you this, the man you look before you isn’t the same as the one you last saw at Territorial Invasion. I’ve not only made peace with my demons, but I am now one with them. Voin and Mstislav are one in the same, and to make an impact, we decided to do the one thing that would make us both feared. We planted our voice, our presence in the minds of not only Marx, but of you, of DEDEDE, of everyone. We planted the date that you’ve all be dreading, the date, the Vengeful One comes to take back what is his.
(Mstislav starts to pace around the ring.)
Mstislav: That’s why I attack Marx, that’s why I wanted to make my presence known with nothing but imagery. And you know what, that’s why ever since it happened, you people haven’t been able to get it out of your minds. And it progressed like a virus, progressing until it culminated with me kick the lights out of Marx, with one single strike. And the best thing about it, was the way I toyed with him. Show the replay.
(The replay starts playing with Mstislav lifting up Marx’s face with his boot. It’s slow, but you could see the methodical pace that Mstislav did it.)
Mstislav: I made him my puppet, without even having to pull one string. Me lifting him up with just my boot showed you the very structure Voltage has become. Weak willed, easily toyed, and when all is said and done.
(The replay images flash up to the point of contact of the boot.)
Mstislav: Easily dispatched. I could talk all I want out, here but I’ve made my point known.
(Mstislav drops the mic and starts to leave…..but is stopped in his tracks as the stage lights up and “Digital Bath” by Deftones begins to play.)
Nick Angel: It couldn’t just be that easy! Mstislav thought he could make his statement and leave but of course Ryan Marx wasn’t going to allow for this man to come out and not give him the receipt he owes him for last week! Mstislav seems to have expected it somewhat as he immediately gets into a stance and prepares himself for a fight, anticipating Ryan’s arrival! Ryan sure is taking his sweet time here, Mstislav has had plenty of time to wait in the ring!
Kawajai: Yeah, Ryan Marx still has yet to come through those curtains! He’s gotta be teasing Mstislav here and trying to get annoyed!
Nick Angel: Ryan Marx has never been the one to play those types of games though, Kawa! He has shown to be a man of action countless times, he gets down to business as quickly as possible. I figured he’d waste no time coming out here but I guess I figured – WRONG!
Kawajai: THERE HE IS! COMING OUT OF THE CROWD, FROM BEHIND! RYAN MARX CLUBS MSTISLAV IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD, CAUSING HIM TO STUMBLE FORWARD! A dazed Mstislav shakes it off and turns around so that he is face to face with Ryan Marx, who swings wildly at him! Ryan Marx going for shot after shot as Mstislav is forced to think on his feet to evade them! Ryan Marx looking frustrated here as he looks for vengeance, continuing to throw shots Mstislav’s way as he ducks the blows! OH! Mstislav backed away too far and ran into the ropes, he’s cornered! PUNCH STRAIGHT TO THE FACE! HAYMAKER! Mstislav is on wobbly legs here; AND HE GETS HIT WITH ANOTHER SHOT!
Nick Angel: Mstislav kneels over….but then shoots up to deliver a jab straight to the throat! Ryan Marx is coughing up a storm as Mstislav bought himself some time! He’s fighting his way out of that predicament! Kick to the solar plexus by Mstislav! THEN A HIGH KICK TO THE JAW! Ryan Marx takes a few steps back after that blow!….But comes back looking for a lariat! NO! Mstislav ducks it by dropping down onto his back, and then kipping up once Ryan Marx passes by him! Ryan Marx can’t stop his momentum and hits the ropes!
Kawajai: Mstislav catches him on the rebound with a spinning heel kick! Mstislav looks for a follow up…..DISCUS CLOTHESLINES CONNECTS! Ryan Marx has been knocked down as he begins to roll out of the ring looking for a reprieve, but no! Mstislav will not let him get away after he started this! He’s walking right behind Ryan, getting onto the apron as he looks to join him outside! JESUS! Ryan Marx possibly baiting Mstislav as he sweeps the leg, causing the lower back of Mstislav to hit the edge of that ring! THEN A SHOULDER THRUST DRIVING MSTISLAV FARTHER INTO THAT APRON! Mstislav falling over as Ryan Marx now delivers some brutal stomps to his downed opponent!
Nick Angel: Ryan Marx is taking his boot and digging it into the jaw of Mstislav, pressing down with all of his weight like he is trying to stomp his head out! Mstislav letting out a groan as you can tell he is in agony! Ryan Marx is letting out all of his anger from last week!
Ryan Marx (without mic): I’m not the one to try and make a statement with, Mstislav! If you thought it was a good idea to target me for your comeback – you couldn’t have made any worse a mistake! YOU’RE A DEADMAN, MSTISLAV! I’M PUTTING YOU BACK ON THE SHELF TONIGHT! YOUR CAREER IS DONE!
Nick Angel: UGH! Ryan Marx finally lets up and spits in the face of Mstislav, showing how he feels about The Vengeful One! Ryan Marx now grabs Mstislav by his neck and lifts him up looking for a one handed chokeslam — BUT NO! Mstislav flips out of it and brings his feet back onto the ground! Him and Marx are standing in front of each other again and just look at Mstislav’s face! He is not going to take what Marx just did lightly! Marx knows a switch has been turned on and so he reacts quickly! Elbow smash to the face, then a European Uppercut for good measure; I Think……THEREFORE —
Kawajai: ROLLING ELBOW! Mstislav interrupts that combination just as Ryan Marx brought his foot up for the superkick with the rolling elbow and then lifts Marx up! SNAP SUPLEX ONTO THE FLOOR! Marx gets up, clutching his back as there will be no rest for the weary! MSTISLAV TACKLES MARX INTO THE STEEL STEPS, THE BACK OF HIS HEAD HITTING IT HARD AS THE STEPS TURN OVER OUT OF POSITION! Mstislav now pummeling Marx SAVAGELY as Marx tries to protect himself! Marx does his best to get out of the mount Mstislav has him in! Marx kicking Mstislav away to get some distance! He uses the turned over steps as an assistance to get himself up and then keeps Mstislav at bay with a poke of the eyes! MARX SLAMMING MSTISLAV’S FACE INTO THE STEEL POST, STUNNING HIM!
Nick Angel: Mstislav looks like he has no idea where he is! Ryan Marx gets behind him and goes between the legs, standing himself up as Mstislav was just put into the air on the shoulders of Marx! Ryan Marx has Mstislav in electric chair position and is heading back toward those steps! No! NO! He can’t be thinking of going for that driver into the steel steps! We need security out here, we need Kenny Drake, somebody has got to come out here and stop Marx before Mstislav is put on the shelf two weeks into his return!
Kawajai: Nobody is going to come out here and get between these two, you know that! Ryan Marx is poised to deliver this maneuver! He pops Mstislav up — IVORY TOWWWWEEERRRR!!! HUH! Ryan Marx releasing Mstislav, Mstislav clipping him in the face at the last second with a clean shot! Mstislav is now behind Marx and drives his face into those steel steps before kicking them away for good! They’re gone now! All that’s left in that corner of the ring is steel post AND MSTISLAV SLAMS THE SIDE OF MARX’S HEAD AGAINST IT! SECOND TIME! THIRD! MSTISLAV IS BLUDGEONING MARX WITH THAT STEEL RING POST WITH CONTINUOUS SLAMS! ONE MORE FOR GOOD MEASURE! Marx’s skull is bloody as he rests against that steel ring post, unable to process this! Mstislav looks at the mess that he has made of Marx and he is not done yet!
Nick Angel: OH MY GOD —
Kawajai: BICYCLE KNEE TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD, SMASHING MARX’S SKULL DEEP AGAINST THE RING POST! I HEARD THIS WOULD BE IN MSTISLAV’S ARSENAL! THAT’S WHAT HE CALLS “HERETICAL KNOWLEDGE” AND ON ITS FIRST NIGHT OF USE IT HAS LEFT MARX INCAPACITATED AS HE FALLS OVER, POURING BLOOD WITH HIS EYES GLAZED OVER! THIS FIGHT IS DONE NOW AS MEDICS NOW DECIDE TO COME OUT AND ASSIST HIM!
(EMTs rush to the scene, having Mstislav move to the side as they check the status of Ryan Marx. They motion for further help as someone comes out with a stretcher to carry Marx out on. They clean him up, do their best to keep him awake, and then strap him into the stretcher so they can get him out of the arena ASAP.)
Nick Angel: Ryan Marx is about to be carted off now for his troubles. He had Mstislav up until that closing encounter and now it might cost him his HEALTH! OH COME ON MSTISLAV! MSTISLAV RE-ENTERING THE SCENE WITH A STEEL CHAIR AS HE SWINGS IT INTO THE BODY OF MARX! SHOT AFTER SHOT TO THE CHEST, BENDING UP THAT CHAIR WITH THE FORCE BEHIND IT WHILE MARX CANNOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT DUE TO BEING STRAPPED IN TO THAT STRETCHER! THE EMTS ARE BEGGING FOR MSTISLAV TO STOP, ONE OF THEM IS EVEN TRYING TO GET THAT CHAIR AWAY FROM MSTISLAV BUT MSTISLAV TURNS AROUND AND SCARES HIM OFF! MSTISLAV TOSSING THE CHAIR AT AN EMT AS HE NOW GRIPS MARX’S STRETCHER…..HE’S HEADING UP THE RAMP WITH IT! MSTISLAV IS HEADING TO THE STAGE WITH THE STRETCHER MARX IS ON!
Kawajai: Mstislav is on the stage but stops before heading through the curtain! He’s changing directions as he’s making his way over to the side of the stage! The gears are turning in Mstislav’s head! Ryan Marx wanted a fight; he promised to literally END Mstislav’s career by coming out tonight and Mstislav is giving him the response he deems to be on par with an attempt at his livelihood! Mstislav has evil intentions as he inches closer to the side of the stage – HE’S PUSHING IT TO THE EDGE! MARX’S STRETCHER IS STARTING TO TIP OVER, OH HEEEEELLLLLLLL!!!
Nick Angel: RYAN MARX’S STRETCHER GETTING THROWN OFF OF THE STAGE! IT FALLS OVER, MARX LANDING FACE FIRST ONTO THE FLOOR BELOW WITH NO PROTECTING HIMSELF! THAT STRETCHER IS TIED TO HIM, PILED ON TOP OF HIM AS THE EMTS HEAD OVER TO THE SIGHT! Mstislav drops down, sitting with his legs crossed purveying the scene, admiring his work! NOOWWWWWW Mstislav is DONE! He wasn’t going to call it a quits after the Heretical Knowledge, he had to take it a step further and that may have resulted in the end of Ryan Marx’s career, at least for the time being! Medics do their best to flip the stretcher back over and help Marx who is completely unconscious! I have never seen him in such a bad condition! We’re going to need to take a break here! We’ll get updates to you as soon as we get them but right now Marx’s status may be up in the air. I am FLOOORED over what we just witnessed!
(AD: For years this man has been allowed to roam the streets with his corruption, abusing his power and ruining lives. The world now knows of the evils of Mil Molestes and you are not alone when it comes to crossing paths with him. Now is the time to let the healing begin. Share your story. Stand up. Speak out. #YoTambien.)
(The arena lights suddenly turn off and turn on again, one-by-one, pointing towards the titantron. Nathan Fiora appears on the titantron with a pricy suit, sitting on a chair cross-legged. Nathan seems to be enjoying the luxuries of his home, with a glass of sparkling wine. He is poured some wine by a random waiter and takes a sip of his wine.)
Nathan Fiora: Ahh. Reality speaks and never fails. I destroyed Dishonest Abe last week in record-setting fashion, which is no surprise to me. He didn’t stand a chance against my wrath against the EAW standard; the corps and suits watched me with fury in their eyes. As much as I’m enjoying myself in my current position, I feel like I’m missing something. There’s an itch I’ve needed to scratch since November of 2016…I need to hold a title once again.
(Fiora stands up and looks towards a painting of him holding the EAW Hardcore Title back in 2016.)
Hmm. Which title will a pursue now? There’re so many in EAW. Each title has blood, sweat, and tears behind it, but one title trumps them all. One title has fascinated me since my return last year. I’ve watched this title be defended by some of the best up and coming EAW elitists around. What title am I talking about? The New Breed Title, currently held by Finnegan Wakefield. Why am I so interested in this title exactly? Time will tell. However, that may change by the end of the night, so I’m officially naming myself as the next number one contender for the title.
(Nathan smiles as he points towards the painting.)
Good luck, Finn and Rev. I’ll be waiting on the other side.
(The camera fades to black as it focuses on the painting. With that we are able to switch scenes into the ring where Rebecca Sawyer is standing by.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is schedule for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(“Switch” by Otto Cate & Brian Skeel hits as James Ranger makes his way on stage, adjusting his sunglasses, shooting both arms skyward before walking down the ramp.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first, Hailing from London, England, weighing in at 243 pounds! The Black Mamba!!! JAAAAMESSS!!! RAAAAAANGER!!!!
Kawajai: James Ranger looked impressive last week in his match with Ryan Wilson, but it was his arrogance that got the better of him. Toying with Wilson lead to a, what he must consider, and embarrassing loss.
Nick Angel: Maybe so, but this week he has the perfect chance to bounce back and even redeem such a loss against the current Interwire Champion. Redeem an upset victory with an upset victory of your own.
(James Ranger removes his glasses and hands it to a member of the ring crew as “Ready to Die/ Party Party Party” Remix by Andrew W.K. hits as the crowd cheer. Moongoose McQueen emerges from behind the curtain with The Boys at his side and the crowd cheer louder and began to chant.)
Crowd: FOR! THE BOYS! FOR! THE BOYS! FOR! THE BOYS!
Kawajai: Sometimes, I don’t know who is more popular; McQueen or The Boys.
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing his opponent, from Austin, Texas, weighing in at 224 pounds! Accompanied by THE BOYS!!!
Crowd: THE BOYS!
Kawajai: Guess that answers that…
Rebecca Sawyer: He is the EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION!!! MOONGOOOOOOSE!!! MCQUEEEEEEEN!!!
Nick Angel: This newfound popularity of Moongoose McQueen may be contributed to the addition of The Boys, but that doesn’t take away from the incredible performances McQueen has had as of late, including his championship defense against Carlos Rosso last week.
Kawajai: Well, there is controversy behind that. Ryan Wilsons involvement might be the reason he still has the championship right now, but nonetheless he has still been performing at an all time high level… odd how involved Wilson is in the careers of three men at the moment, now that I think about it.
(The Boys remove the Interwire Championship from around his waist and elect to hold the title themselves as they exit the ring. McQueen lays across the top ropes of his corner as he waits for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: The bell has rung and both men are circling the ring, measuring each other up as James Ranger looks to go in for the collar and elbow tie up… Only to be met with McQueen putting his hands on his hips and puffing out his chest. Ranger isn’t exactly sure what to make of that.
Nick Angel: The flamboyant mindgames by McQueen coming into play early, and it halts Ranger dead in his tracks. McQueens odd behavior is possibly one of his strongest weapons —
(James Ranger fires a stiff knife edge chop into the chest that makes a sound as loud as the cracking of a whip! McQueen holds his chest with his eyes bugging out of his head!)
Nick Angel: OR HIS ACHILLES HEEL! DEAR GOD, THAT WAS A HARD CHOP!
Kawajai: Ranger is having none of McQueens shenanigans apparently, giving him another hard chop to the chest! And another! And another, backing McQueen into the ropes! He traps McQueens arms over the ropes… AND ONE MORE BIG, LOUD KNIFE EDGE CHOP RIGHT TO MCQUEENS ALREADY BEATEN RED CHEST!
Nick Angel: Ranger grabs McQueens wrist and launches him across the ring with an Irish Whip, off the ropes and James Ranger CATCHES HIM WITH A BIG BACK BODY DROP OVER THE ROPES AND OUT OF THE RING!
Kawajai: No, McQueen holds onto the ropes! Ranger doesn’t seem to notice as McQueen skins the cat back into the ring, waiting in anticipation for Ranger to turn around… AND LAUNCHES A SUPERKICK RIGHT INTO HIS JAW! RANGER HITS THE MAT AND ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND MCQUEEN IS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING!
Nick Angel: Hold on, the crowd are coming alive as McQueen is calling on The Boys! They’re sliding into the ring and… what are they up to? ARE THEY MAKING THEMSELVES STEPS!? THEY’RE MAKING THEMSELVES HUMAN STEPS AS THEY ARE ON THEIR HANDS AND KNEES!
Kawajai: Say what you will, they are very creative! McQueen runs off the ropes, RUNS OFF THE BACKS OF THE BOYS AND DIVES OVER THE ROPES WITH A HUGE TOPE CON HILO!!! THE CROWD ARE IN LOUD APPROVAL!!!
Nick Angel: An extremely hot start to this contest as McQueen rolls Ranger back into the ring, The Boys joining McQueen on the outside to assure he isn’t hurt from his big dive. McQueen pushes them aside and climbs to the apron and between the ropes… only to be caught with a big rope hung DDT by Ranger! The Boys look on in horror, realising their accidental distraction which has allowed James Ranger to take control!
Kawajai: James Ranger pulls McQueen to his feet, launching a European Uppercut into the jaw of McQueen before hooking his arm over his neck and drops him with a snap suplex! Forearm in the neck as he goes to cover!
Kawajai: Not just yet, shoulder up at 2! Stunned him with the DDT, but that isn’t enough to put away the Interwire Champion. Looking to capitalize, Ranger is pulling McQueen to his knees as he double underhooks the arms! Looking to execute either the facebuster or the Tiger Driver!
Nick Angel: Ranger is trying to hoist him up for one of his signature moves, but McQueen is finding the strength to prevent it! Ranger can’t seem to execute his move and has driven a double ax handle into the small of McQueens back! Giving up on one signature move to attempt another, Ranger runs off the ropes for the Final Execution Ax Kick!!!
Kawajai: But Moongoose McQueen springs to life and hits a low dropkick to the knee of James Ranger! Ranger hobbles back to his feet as quick as he can, ONLY TO BE MET WITH A SLINGBLADE BY MCQUEEN! Ranger is down, McQueen quickly scurries in for a cover!
Nick Angel: NO! NOT YET! Ranger still has some fight left in him! But McQueen sees just how rocked James Ranger is and picks him up to his feet quickly, ONLY TO DROP HIM BACK TO THE MAT WITH THE ONE WAY TICKET – THE ELEVATED WAIST-LIFT SIDE SLAM!
Kawajai: That’s the signature set up for his finishing frog splash, and McQueen quickly climbs to the top rope to go for it! He use to call it the Raigeki, but now it is FOR THE BOYS!!! MCQUEEN DIVES WITH THE FROG SPLASH!!! … BUT NO ONE WAS HOME!!! JAMES RANGER ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND!!!
Nick Angel: Impressive wherewithal by James Ranger, McQueen doubled over from the impact of his Frog Splash! Ranger finds his way to his feet, looking to capitalize and capitalize big! McQueen to his knees, Ranger locking his head beneath his arm, looking for the Northern Lights Bomb! LIFTING HIM UP!!! SUNSET FINISH!!!
Kawajai: OOOOO!!! THAT DIDN’T LOOK GOOD! RANGERS KNEE JUST BUCKLED! RANGER RHYTHING IN PAIN AS HE DROPS MCQUEEN! I THINK THAT DROPKICK TO THE KNEE DID MORE DAMAGE THAN WE ORIGINALLY THOUGHT!
Nick Angel: James Ranger could be seriously hurt, he’s on one knee trying to get it together… BUT EATS A SUPERKICK IMMEDIATELY BY MCQUEEN! RANGER FALLS FACE-FIRST INTO THE MAT, AND MCQUEEN GRAPEVINES THE LEGS!!!
Kawajai: HE’S NOTICED THE INJURY AND IS GOING TO EXPLOIT IT! HE WRAPS HIS LEGS AROUND THE BODY, LOCKING IN THAT INVERTED CLOVERLEAF HE CALLS THE KILLER MCQUEEN!!!
Nick Angel: RANGER IS SCREAMING IN PAIN! IT MUST BE REALLY EXCRUCIATING FOR HIS LEG IN ITS CURRENT STATE!!! RANGER IS TAPPING OUT AND QUITE FRANKLY I DON’T BLAME HIM!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Ready to Die/ Party Party Party” Remix by Andrew W.K. hits, the referee checks in on James Ranger as The Boys enter the ring and cater to McQueen, strapping the Interwire Championship around his waist.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Here is your winner!!! MOONGOOSE!!! MCQUEEEEEENNNN!!!
Kawajai: A great performance by our Interwire Champion! Showing us just how resilient he is with a big submission victory tonight!
Nick Angel: There is some serious concern about the condition of James Ranger, the referee is having to assist him to the back right now. From that hoble, it doesn’t look too good. Nonetheless, another victory for Moongoose McQueen tonight!
(The camera fades to a small office room where a suited El Irónico and another man are sat either side of a desk labelled “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement”.)
Immigration Officer: Ok sir, I’d like to firstly apologise for the prior mix-up but I hope you understand that with the National Security agenda at such a high priority at the moment, we are going to need to run you through the whole immigration process again.
Irónico: Aye, I knows. It’s a reet pain in the khyber to be marched all ‘round t’ Wrekin again but I canny be fucked to argue so let’s just roll our sleeves up and get on with it.
Immigration Officer: Right, of course. Before we can allow you back into the country, I am going to need to ask you some questions just to confirm the information we have here and to determine that you abide by our core American values. I understand you might be nervous but, honestly, it is nothing to worry about. I am actually half Mexican myself on my mother’s side.
Irónico (nervously): FALSE!
Immigration Officer: We haven’t started yet…
Irónico: Right… Right… Well, let’s not loiter, chavo, fire away.
Immigration Officer: First of all, is this the correct spelling of your name?
(The officer pushes a document across the desk to El Irónico. The Irónic Luchador squints down at it with deep focus.)
Irónico: I dunno, pal, I canny read… Er… I means I left my goggles back at the casita but that looks about right to me.
Immigration Officer: Your date of birth?
Irónico: I was boiled that week so I canny remember what day it was.
Immigration Officer: Right… Sex?
Irónico: Yes please.
Immigrations Officer: Place of birth? I have here a “Doncaster”…
Irónico: Via Mexico. Arriba las Rovers.
Immigration Officer: And how long do you intend to stay here?
Irónico: Well to be honest, pal, if we could wrap this up asap rocky then that would be bostin’. It’s already cien o’clock and I’m running late for pre-pre-drinks. Just dying here to crack open a few cold bevvies with the chicos.
Immigration Officer: How long do you intend to stay in The United States of America, sir?
Irónico: O… Until uno too many of Cam’s fishy burritos turns me stomach. Fuck coughing up for health insurance when it’s free back in Yorkshire.
Immigration Officer: I see… Relationship status?
Irónico: Unhappily married.
Immigration Officer: Have you ever been a member of the communist party?
Irónico: I have been to a lot of parties, but that doesnae ring any bells.
Immigration Officer: Have you ever been a habitual drunkard?
Irónico: All of my life.
Immigration Officer: What are the two major political parties in the United States?
Irónico: The National Rifle Association and Susan G. Komen.
Immigration Officer: Name the national anthem.
Irónico: “Africa” by Toto.
Immigration Officer: Under what state is the city of Chicago?
Irónico: State of emergency. No… Decay! Ugh… Civil War.
Immigration Officer: Either of those answers is acceptable. Congratulations, I think we are done for now.
Irónico: Ah beltin’. So how long you reckon I’m twiddling me thumbs waiting for my Visa to process?
Immigration Officer: If all goes well… Maybe 4 to 5 months.
Immigration Officer: Well yeah… The reality is that a lot of countries aren’t always sending their best. Now I don’t have to tell you that but unfortunately your past ties with Mil Molestes mean we cannot give you your visa without first putting you forward for “Extreme Vetting” checks. You know the sort of thing. Background checks. Past convictions. Anal probing.
Irónico: Did you just say…
Immigration Officer: It really is nothing to worry about, sir. I am sure that you have nothing to hide but this is an unfortunately lengthy process. I wish you the best of luck.
Irónico: But you don’t understand, Cabrón. This is my life, my livelihood. I canny afford to miss Grand Rampage and FIghting Spirit. What am I gonny do?
Immigration Officer: Well there is another way…
Irónico: Oh Aye?
Immigration Officer: For a surcharge we could prioritise your application.
Irónico: Surcharge? Are you shaking me down, chavo?
Immigration Officer: Well Trump did say he was going to make Mexico pay for The Wall somehow.
Irónico: That’s true… But it’s no use, amigo. I’m living hand to mouth as it is to support the sesh. There must be another way, right?
Immigration Officer: No.
Irónico: No comprendo, Señor. Answer en Español.
Immigration Officer: No…
Irónico: I see… Well I’ll be off then…
(El Irónico gets up and steps out of the room, shutting the door gently behind him as he takes a strenuous breath.)
Irónico: DAMN YOU MIL MOLESTES!!! EVERYWHERE I GO, YOUR WANDERING HANDS FIND THEMSELVES IN INAPPROPRIATE PLACES! But you aren’t gonny win. Not this time, Chico. I’m gonny work out a way to get back and when I does, your reign of harassment ends. For all of the lives you have shattered, the sesh is coming for you. #YoTambien

Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is a STREET FIGHT and is set for one fall!
(“Psyched Out” by The Supersuckers plays as Ryan Wilson comes down to the ring to a huge ovation from the fans.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, weighing in at 230 pounds….RYAN WILSON!
Nick Angel: This young man interjected himself in a huge way into last week’s Interwire Championship bout between champ Moongoose McQueen and his opponent tonight. Costing Carlos Rosso the title may have not been in his best interest.
Kawajai: It was in his absolute worst interests if you want my honest opinion. We all know how much Carlos obsesses over gold including the Interwire Championship and to be shown up in the fashion that he was last week, I don’t know that things he has planned will be legal even under street fight rules.
(“Already Home” by Jay-Z plays as Carlos Rosso sprints towards the ring wielding a bull rope with a cowbell attached to it.)
Rebecca Sawyer: And his opponent currently-
(Carlos slides into the ring and immediately comes to blows with Ryan Wilson as Rebecca Sawyer quickly scuries out of their way and the referee calls for the bell.)
DING DING DING!!!!
Kawajai: And we are not wasting any time here! I don’t think we’re going to see any kind of scientific wrestling here. Both of these men have been eager to do battle all week and here we are!
Nick Angel: Carlos Rosso getting the upper hand and now he’s using the cowbell on the end of that bullrope, mashing it into Ryan Wilson’s skull! He told anyone who would listen that he would punish this young man for costing him the Interwire Championship and he is making good on that threat so far! That mask already has a tear in it and Wilson is starting to bleed!
Kawajai: This could get ugly fast.
Nick Angel: But Wilson is fighting back somehow! He rakes the eyes of Rosso and hits him with a kick right to the calf, but Carlos responds with a kick right to the ribcage. Trading strikes with this man is not in the best interests of most human beings. Carlos again hitting him with that cowbell, this time sending him down to the canvas!
Kawajai: WIlson is slowly getting up to his feet though and Carlos slowly circling in, but Wilson catches him with a sneaky uppercut! Wilson grabbing the end of that bullrope now and using it to swing at Carlos, that thick-knotted rope leaving welts everywhere it strikes! Wilson has the upper hand and Carlos is retreating from the ring!
Nick Angel: Ryan Wilson following him to the outside, swinging that bullrope to try to make contact but missing and Carlos makes him pay with a lariat! Not his patented Southern Lariat but still one strong enough to send Wilson to the arena floor. Carlos making his way to the timekeeper area, scaring poor little Rebecca Sawyer out of her mind and tossing the timekeeper aside. He’s grabbing a steel chair!
Kawajai: Apparently Chairs aren’t for sitting anymore!
Nick Angel: Carlos swatting Wilson across the back with that chair and he falls in pain! But….is Wilson laughing!? Is something wrong with him!? This is only going to provoke more punishment as Carlos continues to wail away with shot after shot to the back of Ryan Wilson! The referee is frankly helpless, he’s urging Carlos to bring him back in the ring but the former Interwire Champion doesn’t appear to be interested.
Carlos: (No mic) Get up you son of a bitch! I SAID GET UP!
Kawajai: Carlos Rosso looks like a baseball player teeing off getting ready for Opening Day and this is not going to end well for Ryan Wilson!
Nick Angel: Carlos waiting, stalking Wilson, Wilson is up and here comes Carlos…..WILSON WITH AN ITALIAN MAFIA KICK THAT SMASHES THAT CHAIR RIGHT BACK INTO CARLOS’S FACE! The self-proclaimed Champion of Life has been lacerated himself! This crowd on its collective feet as Wilson rolls Carlos into the ring, taking a chance as he climbs up to the top rope…. SWANTON BOMB CONNECTS AND WILSON HOOKS THE LEG!
Kawajai: Rosso kicks out!
Nick Angel: Wilson, his mask torn but still intact, rising to his feet! We’ve seen him take some punishment, but now, Carlos Rosso is going to have to show his endurance, his intestinal fortitude as Wilson slowly pulls him up to his feet. Nice European uppercut from Wilson. Wilson with another one, and now he has Carlos Rosso…NORTHERN LARIAT! Now his version of the Lariat nearly takes Carlos’s head off!
Kawajai: Wilson is fired up! Do you know how big a win this would be for him if he could beat a former champion right here in a street fight!
Nick Angel: And now Wilson’s going for the Fourth Wall Break, that elevated Boston Crab, but Carlos is not turning over, Carlos is fighting for all he’s worth and manages to get one of his legs away, and Carlos here has an ankle lock applied! Carlos pulled from underneath and has the Ankle lock applied! Wilson now writhing in pain…but manages to power out of it!
Kawajai: The damage may have been done there! Carlos had that hold pretty tight and Wilson is up with a slight limp!
Nick Angel: Both men are back to a vertical base in the middle of the ring and Wilson lands an open hand slap right to the face of Carlos and Carlos doesn’t even seem fazed by it! He’s laughing it off in fact before landing a vicious chop to the chest! Wilson responds with one of his own and Carlos just shrugs that one off too before battering the masked man with a vicious elbow strike right to the face! Wilson summoning up his strength and lands another hard chop right across the chest! Even Wilson tilting his head with confusion as Carlos laughs!
Kawajai: Is Carlos inviting him to land another one?
Carlos: (no mic) Another one…..go right ahead.
Ryan Wilson: You sure? One more?
Carlos: One more. (gesturing to his chest) ARE YOU DEAF OR STUPID? I. WANT…..CHOP!
Nick Angel: Wilson gathers his thoughts as Carlos stands in the ring, waiting for him to do something…AND WILSON CONNECTS WITH A CHOP SO LOUD THE PEOPLE IN THE NOSEBLEEDS CAN HEAR IT! But Carlos is still laughing! He pulls him in and hits a thunderous headbutt right in the nose! Wilson collapses to his knees! Carlos is in complete control of this match now! He’s taking his time, trying to slowly pull Wilson up to his feet!
Kawajai: BUT WILSON HITS HIM WITH A LOW BLOW FIRST! THIS IS A STREET FIGHT AFTER ALL! His chest is hard as hell but if you get hit in the man region it’s gonna hurt!
Nick Angel: Man region?
Kawajai: Never mind that, just call the match!
Nick Angel: Wilson connects with a swinging neckbreaker! He knows he’s got a chance to really get some momentum going! Carlos is down…..Wilson with a Lionsault! He goes for another cover, going for a monumental win!
ONEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!
Kawajai: No! Carlos Rosso kicked out at the very last second! Wilson looks stunned! As hard as Wilson has hit the man, he refuses to stay down!
Nick Angel: Wilson knows that he’s got to find a way to put this man away and he’s going for the Mic Drop…but Carlos has it scouted and manages to pull free….ONE HIT KILL RIGHT TO THE JAW! Wilson is stunned and Carlos slips right behind him……DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX INTO A FLAWLESS BRIDGE!
Kawajai: Wilson kicks out! Carlos doesn’t even seem mad about it. He’s still smiling.
Nick Angel: I think it just gives him more leeway to torture this man. Carlos up to his feet now, pulling Wilson and whipping him into the ropes…Ipponzeoi! That judo takedown that could basically pop a shoulder out of the socket! It’s all Rosso right now and he’s gloating to the crowd, a streak of blood dripping down the right side of his forehead.
Kawajai: Wilson I have to say brought this on himself. He knowingly got in Carlos’s way and is now paying the price for it.
Nick Angel: Wilson is slowly getting to his hands and knees, Carlos just taking his time, waiting for him to get up. Carlos making his way over to continue the beating but WILSON HAS THE COWBELL! HE JUST GOT UP AND CLOBBERED ROSSO ON THE HEAD WITH THAT COWBELL, FURTHER EXACERBATING THE CUT! WILSON AGAIN GOING FOR THAT MIC DROP BUT ROSSO CUT HIM OFF WITH THE ROSSO REVOLVER!
Kawajai: How is that even possible!? Wilson hit that man as hard as he could with that bell and even though it staggered Carlos, he still had the presence of mind to counter with the Rosso Revolver again!
Nick Angel: Carlos is checking his head…he sees the blood now on his own fingers, his blood. That smile, that laugh that we saw earlier is gone. Rosso picking up that cowbell and bull rope, wrapping the rope around that right arm, the one he says is the Strongest in EAW. Wilson is up to his feet….LARIATOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Wilson does a near 360 as he spins and falls to the mat! Carlos is not finished yet either as he pulls Wilson up……A SOUTHERN LARIAT CONNECTS AND WILSON’S HEAD BOUNCES OFF THE CANVAS!
(Ryan Wilson kicks out and immediately sticks a middle finger in Carlos’s face as the crowd cheers.)
Kawajai: Wilson is showing just how tough he is! You don’t see many people kick out of that move and Carlos is immediately up on his feet! He pulls Wilson up and has him in the Gotch Style Piledriver position! Wilson is trying to fight out of it! He’s trying to escape! He’s got Carlos up! I think he’s going to back body drop him!
Nick Angel: NO! ROSSO WITH THAT DAMN BELL HAMMERING AT WILSON’S BACK……GOTCH! STYLE! PILEDRIVER! The Red Spike plants Wilson’s skull into the canvas and this one may finally be over!
ONEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
DING DING DING!!!
(“Already Home” by Jay-Z hits as Carlos Rosso gets up and immediately punches out the referee in the ring before continuing to stomp away at Ryan Wilson, the crowd booing every kick.)
Kawajai: Carlos is the winner of this street fight, but it was definitely a fight! And now he’s trying to end Ryan Wilson right here and now! He’s on top of him in a mounted position, pulling at his mask, revealing his face!
Nick Angel: That face is being battered with patented USA Elbows from Carlos! He’s unleashing every bit of fury in his body right now! We’ve got to get some damn security, police, SOMEONE OUT HERE TO STOP THIS! Wilson’s bleeding as Carlos continues to batter him, now using that cowbell! I think this is beyond retribution for that interference last week! All the comments, the cutting him in this match, and Carlos has just completely come unhinged!
Kawajai: Thank God we have some security out here at last! And now Carlos is turning his attention to them! He’s punching them out! This should be a suspension but Carlos has that damn iron clad contract! There’s nothing anyone can do about this!
Nick Angel: I think someone may have finally talked some sense into him, but Carlos still swinging that bull rope around, not wanting to be touched! Carlos leaves the ring to a chorus of boos, well deserved boos if you want my personal opinion!
(Carlos leaves the ring, holding the cowbell and bullrope high, a smug grin on his face as he leaves, admiring his work on the big screen that is focused on Wilson in the ring. The crowd roars as Wilson very slowly tries to pull himself up, throwing up a middle finger to Carlos, who is now staring blankly at the screen.)
Nick Angel: Oh God…….
Kawajai: This man is a glutton for punishment. This is insane! AND CARLOS IS STOMPING BACK TOWARDS THE RING! Wilson can’t defend himself but Carlos is making a point of trying to finish him off once and for all!
Nick Angel: Carlos again in the ring mounting Wilson, throwing punches, hitting him with that rope and cowbell, anything he can to do damage! Blood everywhere in the ring! This is just…..
(DING DING DING!!!)
Kawajai: Yeah, ring the bell, like that is gonna stop Carlos right now!
Nick Angel: I don’t think I’ve ever seen Carlos like this before? He has completely come unhinged here! Security is trying to pull him off but he’s swatting them away. I don’t know how but Wilson is still trying to defend himself, still trying to fight back! Look at this now, Mao Ichimichi is out here, she and Wilson had a little bit of a spat last week but now she’s trying to get Carlos to stop!
Mao: (no mic) Carlos, STOP! Please….that’s enough! Please, just stop! You’ve proved your point….he’s cut pretty badly. Just stop….Please.
Ryan: (no mic, breathing extremely heavy)……So…..Mao’s got you by the balls?
Nick Angel: WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH BOTH OF THESE MEN!? Carlos battering him even more with elbows before Mao jumps in and tries to physically restrain him. And I think that maybe got some bit of rationality into Carlos’s mind. He gets up and leaves the ring with her sliding behind him…..he decks a random member of security on way to the back, no reason for that whatsoever!
Kawajai: Carlos immediately pushing aside EMTs who want to have a look at that nasty cut on him, but they quickly rush to the ring and I have to say, Ryan Wilson is in a bad way but…look at that!
Nick Angel: After all of that punishment, Wilson’s still somehow finding away to try to pull himself up to his feet, blood dripping down over his face and onto his costume, but the fans highly appreciative of his effort! I think this man has won himself plenty of new fans tonight…but it’s also clear he has earned an enemy that will not stop until he’s out of wrestling, out of EAW, permanently.
(The show cuts to commercial as the EMTs check on Ryan Wilson, the crowd still cheering for him as the picture fades to black momentarily.)

(The camera fades back into the backstage area where we see Shark Man standing in front of the camera, seeming to eagerly anticipate for something. Cassidy Vega is next to him with a microphone in her hand, as she begins to ask Shark Man some questions.)
Cassidy Vega: We’re here tonight in the Webster Bank Arena with the one and only Shark Man, who tonight seems to be preparing for something. What do you plan to do tonight?
Shark Man: Well, tonight, I’m gonna go and find the man who has been sending me these letters and tell him to show his face to me! The guy who has been watching me ever since I came into Voltage, the guy who has been following me and hounding me everywhere I go. He’s been sending me these creepy letters that even the deepest creatures in the sea would fear, but me? I’ve only just been more riled up, and now I want him to come out here and finally reveal himself to me and to these people, because tonight? He won’t be waiting for me – I’ll be waiting for HIM. Whoever you are, bring it on! I will beat you from pillar to post, all across the trenches of the ocean because clamnit, I am the toughest son of a fish in the sea and I will not allow some coward to show me up!
(Shark Man paces around the locker room, checking closets and fervently scanning around the area.)
Shark Man: He told me last week that he would be here tonight, so I hope he keeps his word and actually shows his chum bucket ass out here right now, where Aidan show him just why I am SHARK MAN, THE TOUGHEST SON OF A FISH IN THE SEA! GIMME A SHELL YEAH, AND SHOW YOURSELF!
(The crowd in unison shouts “SHELL YEAH”, as Shark Man goes over to the bench where he has laid out different items, such as a football helmet and a baseball bat, putting it on before getting into a fighting stance as he waits for the individual.)
Shark Man: BRING IT ON, CHUM –
(An unknown assailant attacks Shark Man from behind, clubbing him in the back of the head. He wears a green snake mask, looking down onto the downed Shark Man. Cassidy Vega rushes out of the room, screaming in fear.)
Nick Angel: OH MY GOD! SOMEBODY FROM BEHIND JUST CLOCKED SHARK MAN IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD! WHO IN THE HELL IS THAT? IS HE….HE’S WEARING SOME KIND OF SNAKE MASK AND HOLY CRAP, HE’S HUGE! HE PICKS UP SHARK MAN….OH NO! DON’T DO THIS! WHOEVER YOU ARE, WHATEVER YOU WANT, DON’T DO THIS! NOOOO!!
Kawajai: THE MASKED INVADER THROWS SHARK MAN RIGHT INTO THE TELEVISION SCREEN OF THE LOCKER ROOM! OH MY GOD! THE GLASS SCREEN JUST CRACKED AND THERE ARE SPARKS COMING OUT! THERE’S GLASS SHARDS STICKING OUT OF THE BACK OF SHARK MAN, DEAR GOD! WHO IS THIS? WHY DID HE DO THIS? WHAT DOES HE WANT FROM SHARK MAN?
Nick Angel: I….I don’t know, Kawa! I don’t even know if this is the same man, this just left us with more unanswered questions than solid answers! Tonight was not a good night for Shark Man, and I’m just all around puzzled at this entire ordeal!
(The camera focuses on the unconscious Shark Man who is bleeding from his back as EMTs and medical assistance rushes in to help him, before the camera turns to find the assailant gone. It then goes back focusing on Shark Man.)

(With Gabe Reno already in the ring “Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin plays over the arena and out comes Jamie O’Hara cocking his neck and patting his freshly retained EAW World Heavyweight Championship!)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing second, from Melbourne, Australia weighing in at 5’11” 190 pounds he is your reigning EAW World Heavyweight Champion… JAAAAAAAAAAAAAMIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE O’HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
Nick Angel: Coming off an impressive victory and successful defense of his championship against Ahren Fournier, Jamie O’Hara seeks out a new challenge and he might have one in Gabe Reno!
Kawajai: Jamie O’Hara is simply untouchable, Gabe Reno has his work cut out for him to say the least!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Nick Angel: Gabe Reno is wasting little time and immediately starts attacking Jamie with ripping knife edge chops to which Jamie looks at him and cocks an eyebrow! Jamie looks at Gabe curiously and smiles, patting his head! Gabe loo–
Kawajai: A JAW JACKING STANDING BICYCLE KNEE BY JAMIE TO RENO! Reno is sent flying into the ropes and but Jamie pulls him in by his arm and lifts Reno onto his shoulders!
Nick Angel: COUNTDOWN TO MIDNIGHT! RENO FLOPS OFF THE CANVAS LIKE A FISH! A BEAUTIFUL INVERTED DEATH VALLEY DRIVER. Jamie shakes his head no, not yet! Reno struggles to shake the cobwebs, Jamie pulls him in once again! SINGLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER JUST ABOUT SCRAMBLES THE BRAINS OF GABE RENO!
Kawajai: Reno is in big trouble, Nick! Who is somehow crawling on his knees LOOK OUT! KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINGGGGGGGGGGGSLAYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRR; a running bicycle knee flips Gabe Reno completely over onto his stomach!! He’s sprawled on the ring like road kill!!
Nick Angel: Jamie flips Reno unceremoniously onto his back and puts his foot on Reno’s chest!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEE, TWOOOOOOOOOOOO, THREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: Chalk up another one for the champ! He made that look way to easy.
Nick Angel: You know what I said about a new challenge for Jamie? Yeah, scratch that.
(The camera fades to the backstage area, where there appears to be a jumble of shouting voices from afar, the cameraman bursts through Kenny Drake’s office unseen. Meanwhile Lars Grier and Chris Elite are bickering back and forth about their match last week as Kenny stands there with an exhausted look on his face; trying to weather the storm.)
Kenny Drake: Guys… GUYS! I get it. I understand both of your frustrations. Obviously, we have no clear-cut winner here.
Chris Elite: It doesn’t matter! Tie or not, the number one contender should be clear to you; Lars can’t beat Jamie to save his life. Dude straight up sucks.
Lars Grier: I’m so terrible and underworthy, meanwhile you’ve done nothing but sit on your ass waving around that stupid contract as if it were bait.
Chris Elite: That contract means more than anything you’ve done in your whole career.
Lars Grier: I’ve only been in EAW for a year. You’ve been here for almost a god damn decade and all you got to show for it is a little piece of paper you won off a man past his prime.
Chris Elite: Ohhhhh maaannn, the “Mr. DEDEDE fell off defense”, God, is that the go to for you dick eaters. You’re bitter over my success so you gotta latch on to some nonsense in order to discredit me. At the end of the day Lars, I have shown that I can back up my words. I beat the literal Greatest of All Time. Jamie O’Hara didn’t truly beat me at Shock Value and I would have beat him on Voltage if you didn’t stick your nose into business that didn’t concern you. I should be World Heavyweight Champion right now and you shouldn’t even be anywhere near me; you shouldn’t even be in this conversation. The only reason your dumbass is standing in this office with me being able to cop pleas for a title that is far above your league is because I made the mistake of entertaining your little tantrums. Jamie beat you clean, your story should have been over, you’re lucky I gave you clout by setting up that match last week.
Lars Grier: Luck didn’t have me beat Keelan at Shock Value, luck didn’t have me destroy Jamie week after week and LUCK didn’t cause me to spear you off that trailer last week! What was luck was you getting that arm over me seeing as I rightfully won the match with MY move.
Chris Elite: Whatever you say, deadset. What I do know is you’d never be able to do that again.
Lars Grier: Want to test that theory?
Chris Elite: Want to get off my nuts and let me get my title anytime soon?
(The two men get in each other’s faces and continue to argue as Kenny Drake rolls his eyes. )
Kenny Drake: Okay that settles it! I’m sick of you two bitching back and forth. I’ll tell you what’s going to happen. It’ll be you Chris Elite.
(Lars raises his hand but is interrupted by Kenny.)
Kenny Drake: AND don’t worry Lars, you’re included as well, versus Jamie O’Hara in a………… TRIPLE THREAT MATCH! At the upcoming Super Show I’m putting together for all the marbles!
Chris Elite: Nah, I got a better idea. Fuck triple threats. I got an idea that can settle everything. Let’s be real here, both Lars and I want Jamie one on one, but you see, I’m the one with the Gawd Contract here. So I think I should be the one who calls the shots. You see Lars has got to prove that he can get that big ass monkey off of his back so how about this: Lars you can have your one on one with Jamie at the next Super Show. You get your crack at Jamie for the title, in fact, we can start the night with it, BUT……no matter the result the winner will be facing me later that night in the REAL main event thanks to my “little piece of paper”. We both get individual shots but it’s only fitting that I close seeing as I was the one who wasn’t fairly beaten. So that means Lars, when your bitch ass loses to Jamie, you’ll have nobody to blame but yourself and Jamie, I’ll be seeing his ass at the Super Show and correcting what happened at Shock Value!
Lars Grier: Don’t be so confident, Chris. I’m sure in your head this scenario seems beneficial to you but a guy like me doesn’t get tired, I can wrestle all night if I have to. I get to walk out as World Champion by beating you and Jamie in the same night one on one? Shit, I’m not scared of a challenge, in fact you just gave me exactly what I needed in order to prove myself. I’d be more than down for it if it’s the only way your fragile ego can accept someone else gunning for the title.
Chris Elite: Ahhhh, throw you a bone and you still wanna play tough guy, I got ya. Dick eating until the end……well anyway, forget it, he’s in. What do you say, Kenny?
(Kenny stands in silence and rubs his chin for a moment.)
Kenny Drake: Two title matches in one night, eh? Risky move for you Lars if you end up winning but that’s definitely big money for me……you know what? Fine! It’s set in stone. Lars Grier will be taking on Jamie O’Hara and the winner of that match gets Chris Elite to close us off. Both of you got your one on one title opportunities, there! Now, will the both of you kindly.. GET THE HELL OUT OF MY OFFICE!
Chris Elite: Gladly. Whenever this Super Show is, just alert me as soon as you mark it down so I know my date with destiny!
(With Chris Elite already departing from the office, Lars stares a hole through Kenny, perhaps feeling annoyed at Kenny’s suggestion of this being a risk for him. He ends up eventually turning around and slamming the office door on his way out.)
(“This Could Be Anywhere in the World” by Alexisonfire plays to a nice ovation from the fans as Madison Kaline comes out from behind the curtains with a smile on her face. She waves at the fans before making her way down the ramp, slapping hands on her way to the ring…)
Rebecca Sawyer: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… MAAAAAADDIISSSSOONNN KAAAAAAALIIINNNNEEEEE!!!
Nick Angel: Ladies and gentlemen she is the Mistress of Death! Madison Kaline, the girlfriend of Keelan, has been here on Voltage over the past few weeks to assess Keelan’s in-ring performance up close to find out exactly why he’s been falling short in his biggest matches over the past year.
Kawajai: And from what we understand, Madison has found the answer! She’s figured out exactly what it is that’s been holding Keelan back and she is going to reveal it tonight!
Nick Angel: I’m a big Keelan fan so I hope he can finally be given the answer he’s been looking for!
(Madison is given a microphone as her music fades out. The crowd’s positive energy picks up and she can’t help but offer a grin.)
Madison Kaline: That was very heartwarming, thank you! Before I get started I would just like to say that ever since Astraea Jordan injured me over on Empire a few months back, being back in the ring here on Voltage has been phenomenal. Coming out every week to support my man in his corner during his matches and being apart of your energy just makes me miss competing in this ring each and every single night, so from the bottom of my heart I would just like to say thank you.
(The crowd offer an applause as she nods with a smile on her face.)
Madison Kaline: Now… these past few weeks I’ve been trying to get Keelan to open up after he closed himself off. His loss at King of Elite evidently got to him and it got to him in a bad way. It was so bad that he would not even speak – he would just… walk around and keep to himself. He’d say nothing, do nothing. It made my task loads more difficult as I would attempt to assess his matches. It also made it very difficult for me as a girlfriend who loves him more than anything. It was obvious he was really struggling and all I wanted to do was help him, so two weeks ago on Voltage when he yelled at me backstage, while it did hurt I knew that then and there, his frustrations were one of the biggest reasons of his shortcomings. All he wants to do is get across the finish line, and after watching his Reasonable Doubt match against Cameron Ella Ava, he had her exactly where he wanted her. She was a woman on the verge of defeat, and she knew it. The only reason she survived the potential defeat was because Keelan was positioned wrong in that kimura lock. Seconds from tapping out, she found her way to score that victory.
(Madison sighs angrily before thinking about what she’s going to say next.)
Madison Kaline: The problem Keelan has been having is the fact that with every big match he walks into, he overthinks. He overthinks his performance, he overthinks the outcome, he overthinks what everybody thinks of him. The longer the match goes on, the worse it gets. It really sucks that this is the reason because Keelan is facing what I had a problem with for a long time. But you know what, I got over all of that about this time last year. What not a lot of people know is that this very night one year ago, Keelan and I got together. I–
(The crowd interrupt Madison as they cheer to that.)
Madison Kaline: Thank you. He was the reason I broke out of my slump. He was the reason I won my first FPV singles match in over a year at that point at Terminus. He was the reason I won at Pain For Pride X and got myself a championship match against Aria Jaxon. He was the reason I ultimately became the Empress of Elite! And now, because he has helped me out this past year, it should be my duty to return the favor and the the exact same for him! So, Keelan, please come out here and let’s talk about it all!
(Madison looks up on the stage. After a few moments of silence, “Wild Boys” by Duran Duran plays as Billy and Jimmy Wilde strut out onto the stage with smirks on their faces.)
Nick Angel: What’s this now?
Kawajai: The Wild Boys are making their way out here now.
Nick Angel: Well these two had a small altercation with Madison a couple of weeks ago on Voltage backstage. Perhaps this appearance by them now links in with that?
Kawajai: Let’s wait and find out.
(The Wild Boys enter the ring and slowly circle Madison, before they both get handed microphones from the timekeeper. Their music fades out.)
Jimmy Wilde: Well look what we got over here, Billy.
Billy Wilde: Ah, a beautiful, elegant, sophisticated woman, Jimmy.
Madison Kaline: What the hell do you two want?
Jimmy Wilde: Whoa, whoa, whoa, take it easy sweetness. We’re just out here to talk.
Madison Kaline: Well make it quick.
Billy Wilde: What’s with the attitude? We’re out here to talk about our little encounter two weeks ago backstage.
Madison Kaline: What about it?
Jimmy Wilde: Well I don’t like to be the one to point out the obvious, but… Maddie honey come on.
(Madison looks at both of them in confusion.)
Billy Wilde: We know you’ve been checking us both out.
Madison Kaline (laughing): Are you fucking kidding me?!
Billy Wilde: We never joke when it comes to ladies.
Jimmy Wilde: Let’s be honest, Maddie. Billy and I both know that…
(The Wild Boys look at each other with a grin on their face.)
Jimmy & Billy Wilde: That you wanna take a ride on the Wilde side!
Madison Kaline: Oh my lord. I wouldn’t touch EITHER of you with a ten foot pole. I mean god… look at your foreheads!
(Both Wild Boys are startled by the comment.)
Jimmy Wilde: What’s uh… what’s wrong with them?
Madison Kaline: I mean, god. Jimmy you can land a fighter jet on that forehead!
Billy Wilde: Whoa, uncalled for!
Madison Kaline: And yours?! Your forehead is in another timezone to the rest of your body!
Jimmy Wilde: Alright we aren’t here for all that. Look, you owe US an apology!
Madison Kaline: For what?! I did absolutely nothing wrong. I was backstage with my man and you happened to run into me. The fact that you are making a big deal out of this really, really minor issue… it’s almost like you’re trying to find something to do here on Voltage because all you do is lose matches. You’re starting to stir things just because you both have nothing better to do. Now, if you will excuse me, I would like you to please leave the ring and get out of my face!
(The Wild Boys look at each other again, before slowly stepping closer towards Madison.)
Billy Wilde: Or what?
(Madison begins to slowly step back but The Wild Boys continue to get closer.)
Kawajai: This doesn’t seem too good for Madison here.
Nick Angel: Not at all, Kawa! Madison may not be on crutches anymore but she’s got that injury! Wild Boys might be looking to do some damage here!! They corner Madison and they force her to her knees! Oh my god!
Jimmy Wilde: It’s time to show the world the REAL you, Madison.
Billy Wilde: Madison Kaline, the dickeater!
(The Wild Boys put their arms in the air before doing a cross chop.)
Jimmy & Billy Wilde: SUCK IT!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nick Angel: NO, NO, NO! BILLY GRABS MADISON BY THE BACK OF THE NECK AND TRIES TO FORCE HER FACE INTO JIMMY’S CROTCH! WHAT THE HELL!!! WE CAN’T AIR THIS SHIT, GO TO COMMERCIAL!!
(“Oblivion” by 30 Seconds to Mars plays to a huge ovation as Keelan sprints out from behind the curtains, wearing his new, “I’M A FACE!!!!” t-shirt.)
Kawajai: IT’S KEELAN!!! THE WHITE KNIGHT IS HERE TO SAVE THE DAY!!
Nick Angel: KEELAN SLIDES INTO THE RING AND THE WILD BOYS BAIL! THEY’RE GETTING THE HELL OUT OF DODGE! Keelan helps his girlfriend up as he watches The Wild Boys head halfway up the ramp! Keelan kicks the bottom rope in rage before letting out a huge scream as the fans cheer him on! Madison stands in the center of the ring… she looks traumatized, Kawa!
Kawajai: I couldn’t even begin to imagine what’s going through her mind right now. She looks up at Keelan, thankful for the save, but she has her hands behind her neck almost in shame! Keelan goes up to her and lifts her chin up so they can look into each other’s eyes!
Nick Angel: This is a little cute… AND THEY KISS! THE FANS CHEER AS WILD BOYS LOOK ON ANGRILY! Madison walks over to the ropes while Keelan stays in the middle, looking down at the canvas.
Madison (off-mic): DON’T EVER MESS WITH ME OR MY MAN AGAIN, OR WE BOTH WILL FUCK YOU UP! WE’RE BOUND BY FATE, DON’T YOU KNOW?!
Kawajai: Madison turns back towards Keelan and–
Nick Angel: WHAAAAAAAAT THEEEEEEEEEEE FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK?!?!?!
Kawajai: NO!!! NO!!! WHAT?!
Nick Angel: SUUUUUUUUUUUPERRRKIIICCCKK!! ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! KEELAN JUST SUPERKICKED HIS OWN DAMN GIRLFRIEND!! MADISON IS GROUNDED, AND KEELAN IMMEDIATELY DROPS TO HIS KNEES BY MADISON’S HEAD! HE IS IN SHAMBLES!!! WHAT THE HELL DID WE JUST SEE?!
Kawajai: KEELAN IS PANTING REALLY HEAVILY, ALMOST LIKE HE’S JUST REGRETTED THE DECISION HE MADE!!
Nick Angel: AND WHY DID HE MAKE THAT DECISION, KAWA?! WHAT THE HELL?! KEELAN LIFTS HIS HEAD UP AS A TEAR DROPS FROM HIS EYE!! I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS!!
(A replay shows Keelan superkicking Madison right under the chin, and Keelan dropping to his knees instantly after.)
Kawajai: And now The Wild Boys, with smiles on their faces, jog back down to the ring and roll underneath the bottom rope! They rise to their feet and look down at Keelan, who is in the middle of a breakdown! He leans down and kisses Madison on the forehead before slowly rising up to his feet, keeping his eyes towards the ground. He isn’t wanting to make any eye contact with anybody right now!
Nick Angel: Oh, hold on Kawa. Keelan looks up at the two brothers! Keelan’s face… he is just drawing a blank right now. He is as expressionless as you can possibly be! Keelan takes a deep breath, closes his eyes… BEFORE POINTING A FINGER GUN TOWARDS MADISON!! WHAT THE HELL?! KEELAN LEAVES THE RING… HE’S LEAVING THE ARENA!! THE WILD BOYS LIFT MADISON UP! KEELAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! GET THE HELL BACK INTO THE RING AND SAVE YOUR WOMAN!!!
Kawajai: BILLY LIFTS MADISON UP INTO THE TOMBSTONE POSITION WHILE JIMMY EXITS THE RING ONTO THE RING APRON! THE CROWD ARE BOOING SO LOUDLY AS KEELAN GLANCES BACK TO THE RING FROM ON TOP OF THE STAGE!!
Nick Angel: OH NO… NOT THIS!! ANYTHING BUT THIS!! JIMMY SPRINGBOARDS… AVA DRIVER!!!!! THE SPRINGBOARD SOMERSAULT SPIKE TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER!! MADISON KALINE IS DEAD!! THE WILD BOYS, WITH THE ASSIST FROM KEELAN, JUST KILLED THE MISTRESS OF DEATH!!!
Kawajai: THE WILD BOYS TOO SWEET IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! THIS IS BIZARRE!!
(The Wild Boys exits the ring as we get a slow zoom-in on Madison’s body as we fade to commercial…)
(FINAL COMMERCIAL BREAK)
(AD: Tune in at the start of March as our fellow show Dynasty presents its first brand exclusive PPV of the year: RECKLESS WIRING!)
(We cut backstage as Keelan comes out of the gorilla position and down the stairs where Cassidy Vega is there waiting.)
Cassidy Vega: Keelan… do you… do you care to explain your actions?
Keelan: Actions?! No… just fucking no, Cass. Madison came out and said she found the one thing that was holding me back from reaching my full potential. It dawned on me this past week that the one thing that was ever holding me back… was her. Now get the fuck out of my face.
(The Wild Boys come out of the gorilla position and down the stairs to stand behind Keelan just as he was about to leave. Keelan looks back at the two brothers, before the three look at Cassidy. Keelan leads The Wild Boys out of the frame as we fade back to ringside…)
Rebecca Sawyer: Ladies and gentlemen it is now time for our MAIN EVENT of the evening! The following contest is a STEEL CAGE MATCH scheduled for one fall…..
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Rebecca Sawyer: And it is for the EAW New Breed Championship!
(The lights dim and “For Whom The Bell Tolls” by Metallica starts up, the titantron crackling and turning to static. Finally when the bell starts to chime, purple smoke starts up at the top of the ramp, and culminates with it clearing to reveal the sight of The Revenant standing there, full entrance gear, with a stern expression. He proceeds down to the ring, escorted by security.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first, from Chicago, Illinois, weighing in at 237 pounds! He is “The Reaper”…..THE REVENANNNNNNNTTTTTTTT!!!!
Nick Angel: The Revenant is in an environment that suits him more than any other Elitist! This is a steel cage, a structure made for a fighter! No escape, no hiding, this is a match that can only be one by pinfall or submission! Revenant has been hunting Finnegan and his title and tonight he has him right where he wants him with neither being allowed to leave until a victor is decided! After six months of waiting, Revenant may finally get the recognition he deserves and truly prove that despite his lack of tenure nobody is out of his reach!
(“Morning Glory” by Oasis plays to the excitement of the crowd. As the pre-verse kicks in, Finnegan Wakefield bursts through the curtain, standing on the stage with his hands behind his back and the New Breed Championship on full display. He pops his collar and walks down the ramp. He walks with confidence, extending his hands for fans to touch.)
Rebecca Sawyer: And his opponent, the champion, from Bury St Edmunds, West Suffolk, England! Weighing in at 181 pounds! He is The EAW New Breed Champion……FINNNNEEEGGGAAANNNN WAKEEEEFFFIIIEEEELLLDDDDD!!!!
Kawajai: Finnegan Wakefield has had nobody gun for him as aggressively as Revenant has since his reign began! Finnegan is very much out of his element here, he’s used for people chasing him and his belt, but for someone to be breathing down his neck like this, it’s been hard to adjust. Last time Finn faced Revenant, he got off by the skin of his teeth and since then Revenant has tried to drive him to the brink of madness. This feud has turned Finnegan into a much more serious competitor and he’s going to need that demeanor to make it through this steel cage match!
(As Finnegan Wakefield gets to ringside and climbs the steps, he locks eyes with Revenant. He immediately steps into the ring, skipping his usual routine of pointing to the sky and instead keeping his focus on his opponent. Finnegan hands the referee his belt so that he can pass it off, not once breaking away from Revenant. The two keep their gaze as the cage lowers as the referee signals for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Nick Angel: The door has been shut, the bell has rung, our New Breed title match main event is underway and both men are charging each other looking to gain control right out of the gate! Finnegan Wakefield advanced to Revenant first and swung but Revenant went low on his approach and scooped Finnegan Wakefield off of his feet, slinging him over his shoulder and powering him into the corner like a battering ram! THE COMBAT SPEAR RIGHT AWAY! Finnegan Wakefield is pressed up against that turnbuckle, eating body shots with some lung crushing shoulder thrusts being swapped in as well! Revenant is acting like a caged animal with his attacks right now and with this match it is very fitting! Finnegan Wakefield tries to pry Revenant off of him and get some breathing room but Revenant stays on him, continuing to take the air out of him with a rock hard punch to the gut! That one was a HEAVY strike! Revenant finally backs away by a few feet as he is able to get a look at the results of the damage he has done! Finnegan Wakefield is hunched over, holding onto that turnbuckle to keep himself up as he spitting up and gasping for air!
Kawajai: Finnegan appears to be in shock over how brutal those strikes were! His eyes are bulging to the point that they might pop out of his skull and he is still very much struggling to compose himself following that flurry. It is a scary sight here for our champ — BUT IT JUST GOT WORSE! Finnegan left his face right open while he was leaning out in that daze AND THERE GOES REVENANT KICKING UP AND CATCHING FINNEGAN IN THE JAW WITH INTENT TO TAKE FINN’S HEAD OFF! The teeth of Finnegan damn near getting knocked out of his throat as he steps out of that corner on spaghetti legs, walking right into the waiting Revenant who tosses him over his head with a belly to belly suplex! Finnegan Wakefield cringes in pain as his back bends from the impact! The Revenant heads into the corner that Finnegan just got out of and lunges out from it, diving onto Finnegan for a standing splash! The Revenant has a lateral press and the shoulders are down, we got a cover here!
Nick Angel: A cover is not what he’s looking for yet, Kawa! Not long after he landed on Finnegan, he snatched him up in a side headlock! Revenant is using that almost fifty pound weight advantage over Finnegan to keep that pressure on him and tire him out so that he’ll be useless later on in the match! Finnegan has too much fight to go out early, but if you break him down even if his will his strong his body won’t be able to keep up! Finnegan is struggling but you can he’s still yet to fully recover from the flurry he’s been receiving! He’s coming to his sense though and trying to shift out of that headlock! Finnegan turns onto his hands and knees as Revenant changes positions with him! They’re no longer on their side as Revenant hovers over him in a mount, his headlock now turning into a rear naked choke that is being applied! Finnegan Wakefield is pushing himself up with Revenant on his back but that might have been a mistake! Revenant decides to follow his lead and stand up as Finnegan is on his knees, his guard having been let up with Revenant now being able to get that RNC in deep! Revenant towers over him with the choke and is rearing back on it, pulling upward so that his forearm is forced up against Finn’s throat! You can see the immediate panic taking place as that pathway is entirely blocking up!
Kawajai: Finnegan knows that he must get out of there as soon as possible! He’s shaking his head about but there is no room to wriggle out! Finnegan has his hands to Revenant’s arm and is now tearing away at it, digging his finger nails deep into that forearm in an effort to get it removed from his neck! Finnegan is literally ripping at skin and leaving dots of blood on the arm of Revenant but Rev stands firm, stone faced as he focuses on choking the life out of our New Breed Champion! Finnegan’s face is turning beet red, he can’t even muster up a scream! He puts his head down….AND BITES THE ARM OF REVENANT! FINNEGAN CHOMPING DOWN AS REVENANT LETS OUT A YELL FOR HIM! Revenant’s grip loosens as Finnegan Wakefield slides out of his clutches and gets to a vertical base, his back still turned to Revenant! PELE KICK BY FINNEGAN WHICH LANDS RIGHT ON THE BUTTON!
Nick Angel: Finnegan Wakefield with his first hit of the match and he makes it count as it stuns the challenger! Finnegan feels up his throat, enjoying his freedom for a few seconds before forming a look of determination and approaching Revenant, grabbing him by the hair — AND THROWING HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE STEEL CAGE! Revenant tastes the steel, and Finnegan has him coming back for seconds; A SECOND TOSS INTO THAT STEEL CAGE! Finnegan walks off with Revenant’s head being dragged off in a cravate, AND HE TOSSES HIM FACE DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS! He follows that up with an elbow drop to the spine! The Revenant rolls away after that and scrambles to his feet, shaking off the punishment! He runs at Finnegan in anger! But hold on! Finnegan Wakefield with a baseball slide evasion right through the legs! He grabs Revenant in a waist lock and pushes forward, shoving Revenant into the ropes before falling back with an O’Connor roll! Finnegan transitions out of that, turning it into an Elite Suplex! Homage to the legendary Starr Stan as he bridges it looking for a pinfall!
Referee: ONNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWW —
Kawajai: Revenant pops the shoulder up off of the mat and falls onto his stomach. He looks to pick himself up but is unable to as there goes Finnegan giving him a taste of his own medicine with a PENALTY KICK! That gives Revenant a jolt as he shoots up and eats a superkick straight after that! The Revenant almost kneels over but does his best to bounce back from it, taking a roundhouse for his troubles now! Revenant engaged in a seesaw battle to keep himself up but he may have to stay down momentarily for his own good because Finnegan is going to continue treating him like a punching bag otherwise! Finnegan has him lined up once more….SECOND ROUNDHOUSE! WAIT! The Revenant catches his foot! The Revenant getting lucky and timing that just right before Finn’s boot could connect to his temple! The Revenant has a hold of his opponent’s leg and makes a sharp turn, flipping him over with a dragon screw leg whip!
Nick Angel: The Revenant now has some time to return to his feet but not much because Finnegan Wakefield rises up as fast as he can though with slight lag due to what that did to his leg. The two get up at almost the same pace yet Finnegan is quicker to the draw as he darts straight into the chest of the Revenant! Things are getting intense as these two are losing all care over their well being, Finnegan Wakefield is slugging it out with The Revenant! Finnegan almost gets the best of him, but Revenant stops him in his track with a boxing jab right above the eye! Finnegan Wakefield showing signs of that exchange quickly as he is leaking – blood is dripping down the side of his face! Finnegan Wakefield is taken aback from that as he must change over into the defensive! Revenant barrels into him for a takedown but Finnegan halts it by getting him in a front chancery, holding Revenant back as his feet grind against the mat!
Kawajai: These two are at a stalemate, Revenant is pushing with all of his might but Finnegan strains himself to match it, cancelling out the strength of his challenger! Revenant decides to break this deadlock by powering out of that facelock and shoving Finnegan away! Finnegan hits the ropes and hopes to use that momentum to his favor, but Revenant telegraphs it and delivers a hip toss! Wait! Finnegan Wakefield saves himself by landing on his feet! He spins around and gets Revenant in a wristlock! He pulls Revenant in…..CHECKPPOIINNTTT – NO, KNEE TO THE GUT BY REVENANT! Finnegan made Revenant come to him just for it to backfire! Revenant takes over the wrist lock Finn had set and turns it into an armbar! Revenant now bending the arm around, twisting and pulling at it! Revenant is forcing Finnegan to move with him on each turn that he makes or else risk that arm popping out of its socket! Revenant grabs the other wrist of Finnegan now and forces his arms to cross! Finnegan is defenseless as his arms are tied up! Straight jacket DDT, spiking Finnegan Wakefield on his head!
Nick Angel: There was no getting the hands up, no ability to protect himself, Finn’s neck just had to take the punishment from that spring loaded DDT! Revenant gets up looking proud of himself over that! He lets out a roar and then looks down at Finnegan, giving him a thumbs down! He now reaches for the throat of Finn and deadlifts him up into the air with that one hand! Revenant has him by the neck but is seeming to get sidetracked as he looks behind him. Suddenly he puts Finnegan’s feet back onto the ground and pulls him in – THEN DELIVERS A FLATLINE RIGHT UP AGAINST THE CHAIN LINKED WALL OF THAT STEEL CAGE, RATTLING THE STRUCTURE! The angle the camera got on that was telling as you could see the agony on Finn’s face as he is squeezed up against the cage wall, his facing being shredded up via that flatliner!
Kawajai: Finnegan Wakefield’s face is finally pulled away from the cage as you can see the blood stains left behind from his collision! Our New Breed Champion is looking rather feint as Revenant puts him back at an arm’s length, having the hand at Finnegan’s throat so that he may do what he was originally going to do! Finn goes UP! …. AND THEN DOWN FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD GOES WITH A RING SHAKING CHOKESLAM! “THE VERDICT”! The Revenant drops down right after him! He’s got body on body here, we got a cover, new champion maybe!?
Referee: ONNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO —
Kawajai: KICKOUT! Finnegan Wakefield getting it up at the count of the two as WHAT THE HELL, WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH HUM! Revenant shouting in frustration as he positions Finnegan back onto his back and gets on top of him! PUNCH AFTER PUNCH STRAIGHT TO THE FACE OF FINNEGAN! REVENANT IS INCENSED AS HE IS BATTERING FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD IN THAT GROUND AND POUND IN A TACTIC THAT HE CALLS THE MAULING! THE CUT ON FINNEGAN IS WORSENING AS THE BLOOD STARTS TO SMEAR ACROSS HIS FACE! FINNEGAN CAN BARELY EVEN LOOK UP AT REVENANT BECAUSE REV IS FIRING AWAY, LETTING OUT ALL OF HIS PENT UP ANGER! THE REF IS TRYING TO GET HIM TO LET UP FROM HIS ONSLAUGHT BUT IS SCARED AWAY BY THE ABSOLUTE PRIMAL LOOK ON REVENANT’S FACE! THE CROWD IS LOOKING STUNNED AS YOU CAN SEE THE WORRIED EXPRESSIONS OF PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE; THIS IS A SAVAGE BEATING BEING PUT ON DISPLAY! Revenant sets his sights back onto Finnegan, hold on! In an act of desperation Finnegan Wakefield reaches out and claws at his face but that just makes Revenant even angrier! Finnegan Wakefield aiming for the EYE NOW! That’s got Revenant thinking twice in regards to attacking him! Revenant walks off, shouting obscenities as he is temporarily blinded!
Nick Angel: Finnegan Wakefield could have bought himself some type there but he’s so beaten up from those strikes that he can’t even get up! Finnegan Wakefield brings his head up off of the mat, revealing the POOL of blood forming underneath him that is continuing to grow as it pouring out of his head! Finnegan Wakefield is SHIVERING from the SHOCK that the bare hands of Revenant caused him! This is going to be hard to comeback from but Finnegan Wakefield seems like the type who can gut it out! The Revenant meanwhile is in the corner and is able to open up his eye again! He’s got Finnegan Wakefield in his crosshairs and is watching him! Finnegan Wakefield is starting to crawl to the ropes and Revenant is on it! He races over to him and drags him away by his legs! Finnegan Wakefield is pulling away! He leaps for the ropes! Finnegan Wakefield is holding on for dear life! Revenant does his best to yank him away from those ropes! He gets his wish with a powerful tug that rips Finnegan away and gets him onto his shoulders! Powerbomb! COUNTERED!!!
Kawajai: Finnegan Wakefield sends Revenant across the ring with a hurricanrana out of nowhere! Revenant hit the mat hard but acts like he was inconvenienced more than hurt! Revenant sees Finnegan showing signs of life and looks to bring him back into a vulnerable state with a takedown but Finnegan has the sense of awareness to redirect Revenant and have him hit the middle turnbuckle jaw first!
Revenant (without mic): Son of a bitch!
Nick Angel: Revenant bounces off of that padding and turns around holding his mouth – GETTING POPPED UP IN THE AIR BY FINNEGAN! FEURRR!!!! FREEEEIIIIIIIIII!!!! FINN NOT JUST TAKING A PAGE OUT OF LANNISTER’S BOOK, BUT TURNING IT INTO HIS OWN! THE SOUND OF THAT FIST SMACKING AGAINST REVENANT’S FACE ECHOED THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE ARENA! FINNEGAN POTENTIALLY CHANGING THE WHOLE COMPLEXITY OF THIS MATCH WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT THAT WOULD MAKE EVEN RYU PROUD!
Kawajai: WELL I DON’T KNOW ABOUT ANY OF THAT WEEB SHIT NICK BUT WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT REVENANT APPEARS TO HAVE A TOOTH CHIPPED AND BLOOD IS JUST GUUUUSSSSHING OUT FROM THE MOUTH! FINNEGAN TRIED TO DRILL THROUGH HIS FACE WITH THAT UPPERCUT, THE CHAMP HAD TO HAVE BEEN RUNNING OFF OF ADRENALINE TO PULL OFF THAT ALMOST SUPERHUMAN FEAT!
Nick Angel: The referee has on gloves and has a rag at ready to try and clean him up but he’s going to need something much bigger, it’s just falling down onto the canvas rapidly! This nasty to look at, he might need stitches – but so may Finnegan which is why he doesn’t look so sympathetic as he takes Revenant away from the referee and WILDLY THROWS HIM INTO THAT STEEL CAGE! Revenant went FLYING into that cage wall, his arm smashing up against the cage and then falling over in a heap! Revenant fell onto the edge of the ring, his body is stuck between the ropes and the cage! There’s not a lot of room, making it difficult for him to get up and get out of that predicament on his own — OH! Revenant poked his head out but Finnegan Wakefield gets to him first with a knife edged chop! He then grabs Revenant AND WHIPS HIS HEAD BACK SO THAT IT IS SENT BACK INTO THE CAGE, OH MY GOD! REVENANT DIDN’T EVEN HIT THE CHAIN LINKS, HE HIT THE METAL STUDS THAT WHOLE THE CAGE TOGETHER! THE CRACKING NOISE FROM THE BACK OF HIS HEAD HITTING THAT IS ENOUGH TO MAKE YOUR SKIN CRAWL!
Kawajai: It’s a sound that Finnegan is enjoying though seeing as it’s a sign that he’s doing something! Finnegan keeps his hand on Revenant’s head and starts banging his head against that metal stud AGAIN AND AGAIN! Finnegan Wakefield is going to even the playing field by making Revenant feel just as rocked as he is! Finnegan Wakefield cocks his hand back AND HITS AN OPEN PALM THRUST RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES OF REVENANT, SANDWICHING REV’S SKULL BETWEEN THE FORCE OF THAT SHOTEI AND THAT HARD STEEL! THE BACK OF REV’S HEAD HAS BEEN BUSTED OPEN TO MATCH THE FRONT! HIS BLOOD COVERS THAT METAL AND WITH HOW DISAPPOINTED FINN LOOKS YOU’D THINK HE WAS HOPING TO BASH HIS BRAINS OUT!
Nick Angel: Finnegan Wakefield has nothing but hate in his heart at the moment! He looks at his hand and it is coated in the blood of his enemy! He looks at it in disgust, rubbing it all over Revenant, AND THEN SLAPS REV ACROSS THE FACE FOR GOOD MEASURE! Revenant’s knees buckle from that hit, he was doing his best to hold it in but he is obviously weakened! He falls over in a kneeling position! Another slap to the face by Finn, wiping Revenant’s own blood into his eyes! Finnegan is getting blatant with that fire, that disrespect, and I can not blame him! He runs off from Revenant but comes back around! GOODBYE EUPHORIA! RUNNING SINGLE LEGGED DROPKICK! REVENANT’S BODY GETTING SLICED UP BY THAT UNFORGIVING CHAIN LINKED WALL AS YOU CAN SEE HIS SKIN TURNING RAW FROM ALL OF THAT CONTACT! Like we said, there is almost no space between the ropes and the cage so he is constantly pressed against that wall and Finn smushing him into it time after time makes it even more excruciating! Finnegan Wakefield grabs the hair of Revenant, the once blonde locks now completely unrecognizable, and places his arm over his head….SNAP SUPLEX OVER THE ROPE, TAKING REVENANT BACK INTO THE RING!
Kawajai: Finnegan Wakefield maintains his grip on The Revenant and rolls over with Revenant in his grasp, guiding him up to his feet! Revenant is nearly two hundred forty pounds and is practically deadweight in Finnegan’s hands but somehow Finnegan is powering him up! He brings Revenant to his feet…AND SENDS HIM UP INTO THE LIGHTS SO HE CAN SEND HIM INTO THE CANVAS WITH THE HIGH ANGLE MICHINOKU DRIVVVVEEEEEERRRRRRR!!!!! FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD PINS BACK REVENANT’S SHOULDERS AND HOOKS THE LEG, IT’S OVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THRRRRRRR —
Nick Angel: REVENANT IS STILL IN THIS! REVENANT SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY GOT THE SHOULDER UP AND FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD CANNOT STAND IT! THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN IT! IT HAAAADDD TO BE IT! FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD IS SPENT AND NOW HE MUST OVERDRAW FROM THE RESERVES TO GATHER THE STRENGTH TO BRING REVENANT UP AND TRULY FINISH THIS! FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD SPITS VENOM AS HE LIFTS UP REVENANT’S SEEMINGLY LIFELESS BODY IN THAT FULL NELSON; ANDROMEDDDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! FINN HITTING THAT BRIDGING FULL NELSON AS BEST AS HE CAN WITH THE LITTLE BIT OF ENERGY HE HAD LEFT IN THE TANK! HE TRIES TO HOLD STEADY AS HE BALANCES REVENANT IN THAT BRIDGE AND KEEP THAT PIN IN AFFECT! THE REFEREE CAUTIOUSLY LANDS ON THE MAT, WATCHING OUT FOR BLOOD AS HE COUNTS!
Referee: ONNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THHHHHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE —
Kawajai: NO,NO, NO! REVENANT KICKS OUT! REVENANT FREAKING KICKS OUT! HOW DID HE HAVE THE WHEREWITHAL TO DO THAT? WHY IS THIS MATCH STILL GOING? FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD IS DISHEARTENED, HE WAS ABOUT TO MOUNT THE COMEBACK OF THE CENTURY BUT ALL HE CAN DO RIGHT NOW IS PUT HIS HANDS UP AND KEEL OVER IN EXHAUSTION! BOTH MEN ARE ON THEIR BACKS, LOOKING UP INTO THE SKY WHILE OUT OF BREATH, BLEEDING OUT! THE RING LOOKS LIKE A WARZONE AS THAT MAT HAS BEEN WORN OUT FROM THIS AMAZING MATCH!
(The commentators decides to stop talking for a moment to give the viewers an idea of the feeling in the arena. The fans in attendance are now in a frenzy, showing their appreciation for both men as they let them hear it for their efforts.)
Nick Angel: The insane crowd that is losing their minds might be the thing keeping these two men awake! Take this as motivation! Use this is as a reminder of your desire! You’re fighting for glory, you’re fighting for gold, you’re fighting for RESPECT! Finnegan Wakefield will do anything for those three goals as you can see from him rising to the occasion and once again willing himself to his feet. It looks like it causes him pain to stand. He’s limping, he’s got a pounding headache, his body is definitely weak from blood loss, but he’s soldier through like a man, like a CHAMPION! Finnegan Wakefield DEMANDS that the Revenant get up! He knows that his opponent has it in him and he’s giving him a command to get up on his own! The Revenant is gathering his bearings and as he looks up and sees Finnegan standing in front of him he begins SEETHING. Seeing Finnegan calling him out is making him angry and that’s great! It’s really got him going!
Kawajai: Revenant might have found his second win! He’s starting to get up — WHOOAAAAAA!! VAE VICTIS! BICYCLE PUNT KICK BY FINNEGAN….AND REVENANT JUST PUNCHES HIS OWN HEAD TO SHOW OFF HOW LITTLE IT MEANT TO HIM! I can’t even say that Revenant ate the shot this time, he absorbed it! Revenant is something EAW has never seen before, he lives for striking and he’s currently in the zone! One of Finnegan’s best tricks in his arsenal just went up in flames but he will not be scared off by it! Spinning backfist to Revenant! Forearm shot! Jumping knee! A JUMPING KNEE AGAIN! Slaps to the face with bullet speed, a punch to the ribs, RAKE OF THE CHEST! Finnegan winds back a punch, rebounds off of the ropes with it, and SSWWIIINNGGGGSSSS – noooo!! Revenant got the fist and Finn’s face changed! Revenant is CRUSHING that hand! Finnegan wants to get his hand back; REVENANT WITH THE HEADBUTT! Finnegan is knocked senseless as Revenant sees his opening and has him up – JACKHAMMER! THE EXECUTIONER IS GIVEN WITH MAJOR IMPACT TO IT! REVENANT IS RIGHT ON TOP OF FINNEGAN, HOOKING BOTH LEGS AS TIGHT AS POSSIBLE! IN A MATTER OF SECONDS THIS MATCH WAS TURNED AROUND AND WE MAY JUST GET A NEW CHAMPION THIS TIME!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
Nick Angel: IT IS NOT THE TIME! FINNEGAN HOLDS ONTO HIS TITLE AT 2 AND ¾! THAT WAS SUCH A CLOSE CALL THAT THE REFEREE WAS CERTAIN HE COULD CALL IT A MATCH! The Revenant is in disbelief! He gets on top of Finnegan Wakefield….AND ANOTHER MAULING COMMENCES! REVENANT IS TEARING FINN APART RAVENOUSLY! The knuckles of Revenant getting bruised against Finn’s skull with how hard he’s hitting him! FUCK! REVENANT CATCHING FINN DEAD IN THE FACE AND BUSTING UP THE NOSE! THAT HAD TO HAVE BEEN SOME KIND OF FRACTURE! Now what is Rev doing — HE’S RIPPING AT THE WOUND OF FINNEGAN! NO, THAT’S ENOUGH! FINNEGAN TAPS HIM ON THE JAW AND REVENANT STOPS! Revenant has eased up on Finnegan and looks at him after that hit, feeling his face…..I think Revenant just got angrier from him fighting back! He pulls Finnegan up, brings him over to one of those cage walls…..AND HE DRAGS HIS FACE ACROSS THAT WALL ALL OF THE WAY TO THE END OF THAT SIDE! FINN’S FACE GRINDING AGAINST ALL OF THAT STEEL IN ONE GO AS HE WAS SCREAMING IN AGONY THE WHOLE WAY! Finnegan lays against the turnbuckle, looking SPENT. He can’t take much more of this! STINGER SPLASH TO THE BACK, MY GOD! ENOUGH!
Kawajai: This is hard to watch, Revenant is back in the driver’s seat and he’s going to take this as far as he can after what Finn put him through earlier in this match. He makes Finn turn around so that his back is now against the turnbuckle. Strikes to the midsection! Finnegan Wakefield bucks up and looks to escape, COMBAT SPEAR BY REVENANT TO SILENCE THAT! Rev stopping Finn just like he did at the very start! Shoulder thrusts to pile on to the abuse! The Revenant muscles Finnegan up and is placing him on the top turnbuckle now! He’s joining him there too! The Revenant might be looking for something big here……oh no, he’s got Finnegan Wakefield hooked! Revenant is standing all of the way up on the top rope with Finnegan with a good grip of the tights and a smirk on his face! He preps himself for the lift and then tugs at Finnegan; SUPERPLEXXXXX!!!!!!
Nick Angel: FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD LOCKS HIS LEGS AROUND THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND REFUSES TO BUDGE! REVENANT WAS NOT ABLE TO DO THE SAME AND AS HE LOSES HIS BALANCE, HE CRASHES AND BURNS ON HIS OWN! Finnegan Wakefield is all by himself on the top turnbuckle while Revenant is flat on his back below! This is the perfect set up, come on Finn, capitalize! Wait…what is he doing! Finnegan Wakefield is standing himself up on the turnbuckle and is now turning around to face that cage wall! He’s climbing it! Finnegan Wakefield is scaling the cage looking to make his high risk move even more dangerous! This has way too high a likelihood of failure! Finnegan Wakefield does not have it in him to get up that cage as fast as he should be in order to pull this off! The guy is taking his sweet time in the stage that he’s in and it’s going to cost him! Revenant is already getting out of position and Finn is only just starting to get a leg over that cage so he can stand on it! By the time that Finnegan Wakefield starts to get his footing on that cage wall, The Revenant is up in the center of the ring and heading straight for it! This can’t be good, Oh Lord, please! REVENANT IS SHAKING THE CAGE WHILE FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD IS STANDING ON IT! THE FEAR IN FINN’S FACE SAYS IT ALL! IF FINN FALLS BACK THAT’S A FIFTEEN FOOT DROP STRAIGHT TO THE CONCRETE FLOOR ON THE OUTSIDE! FINN IS HOLDING ONTO THE WIRE THAT BRINGS THE CAGE DOWN BUT REVENANT IS LIKE A MAD MAN SHAKING THAT CAGE, MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR FINN TO STAND STILL ON THE CAGE! FINNEGAN’S STANCE IS STARTING TO FALTER — JESUS CHRIST!!!
Kawajai: FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD FALLS BUT HE LANDS GUT FIRST ON THE CAGE WALL, THANKFULLY THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS THERE! His upper body is hung up over the ring while his legs are swinging on the outside! Finnegan is clutching the cage wall and is hoping to climb down the cage while upside down but here comes the Revenant not letting him get off that easy! Finn’s arm going over the head of Revenant, the side of Finn’s tights are held up! Finnegan is readily set up for a vertical suplex thanks to how he landed on that cage! This one is going to be a much more extreme fate for him though! Revenant is stood up on the turnbuckle, Finn is spilling off the top of the cage! Revenant lets out a deep breath….AND HE LETS GO FOR THE SUPERPLEX SENDING FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD OFF OF THE CAGE! REVENANT MAKING SURE NOT TO FALL BACK WITH FINN, STAYING ON THE TOP ROPE THIS TIME TO AVOID ANY INJURY! Finnegan Wakefield falling straight onto his tailbone there as I’m sure that shot up his spine! He tries to sit up but soon lays down to recover while Revenant is still there on that top rope! Revenant checks out the downed Finnegan Wakefield and much like Finn did with him, he chooses to turn his back and start climbing!
Nick Angel: When will these guys learn? This is not a good idea! For Revenant especially, he’s a fighter, a ground based competitor, he has no business stepping out into high flyer territory like this! He does have a leg drop in his repertoire that he uses from time to time that could come into play here, but we’re talking about a huge margin for error by doing this move! Revenant is struggling to climb up to that cage! His body might be giving out on him but he’s not going to accept that! He’s going to get himself up that cage one way or another just because he’s a prideful man with a point to prove! Revenant gets a leg over that cage wall, the exact same spot that Finnegan Wakefield was stopped at, and history repeats itself as his opponent is up and is joining him there! Revenant was attempting to stand up on the cage but is beginning to back down! Revenant knows he can’t risk Finn pushing him off and so he is stuck sat on that cage wall as Finnegan approaches him! Revenant hopes to kick him off but Finnegan catches the leg and SLAMS IT into the chains of the cage! Revenant is focused on that knee which gives Finn some time to get up there with Revenant! Both are sitting right in front of each other; the two are duking it out on top of the cage! Rights and lefts being exchanged! A punch by Finn! A punch by Rev! FINN! REV! FINN! REV! FINN! REV! REV! REV! FINN! FINN! FII — HEADDDDBBBBUTTTTT!!! HEADBUTT BY BOTH MEN AS THEY WINDED BACK AT THE SAME TIME THEIR HEADS CRACK AGAINST EACH OTHER AS THEY SWING AROUND IN A DAZE! Revenant manages to keep himself from flipping off of the cage but the same can’t be said for Finnegan, he’s grasping at air looking for a way to save himself — HE FALLS BACK OFF OF THE CAGE! FINNEGAN GOES TUMBLING OFF OF THE WALL BACK INTO THE RING!
Kawajai: HOLD UP! HE DOESN’T GO ALL THE WAY DOWN, FINN FALLING ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE ALLOWING FOR HIM TO SALVAGE THE SITUATION! That was still of course not the most comfortable object to bump into – Finnegan is all twisted up on that turnbuckle, the walls of the cage keeping him up for support as he pushes himself to stand back up on the top rope! Revenant no longer feels the effects of that headbutt and sees Finnegan climbing back up to meet him again! Revenant stands up on the cage waiting for him, daring him to come closer and face the consequences! Revenant is hoping to stomp on Finn’s hands to keep him at bay, but Finn has no intent on going all of the way up! Finn has a good grip of the cage….AND HE’S SHAKING IT! Revenant is surprised by that sudden shifting of the cage’s foundation and panics to make sure he doesn’t fall off of the cage! Instead Revenant falls STRAIGHT down — Finnegan just crotched Rev on that cage wall! Revenant is a sitting duck as Finnegan Wakefield is now up top with him! Finnegan is sat up on the wall, but he is on the other end across from Revenant, what is he going to do here? Finnegan Wakefield is standing himself up, I dont get it — NAH YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME! Finnegan Wakefield is looking to WALK along the cage wall! He’s taking a few steps on that cage, testing the waters, carefully balancing himself! He looks like he could fall over at any second, this is ridiculous! Finnegan realizes that he’d be on borrowed time with this…..AND SO HE RUNNING UP THE CAGE LIKE A TIGHT ROPE STRAIGHT AT THE REVENANT – FINNEGAN WITH THE GOODBYE EUPHORIA DROPKICK TO REVENANT SENDING HIM FLIPPING OFF OF THE CATCH ONTO HIS BACK RIGHT BEFORE HE LOSES HIS BALANCE AND SLIPS OFF OF THE CAGE HIMSELF! FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD WITH ONE RECKLESS MOVE IN EXCHANGE FOR SACRIFICING HIMSELF! DOWN BOTH MEN GO TO THE GROUND!
Nick Angel: NOT BOTH MEN, KAWAJAI, NOT FINNEGAN! FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD DID NOT TAKE THE PLUNGE! FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD, RIGHT AS HE FELL OFF, REACHED OUT AT THE LAST SECOND AND GRIPPED THE CAGE WALL WITH HIS HAND! FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD HANGING BY MERE FINGERTIPS AS HE SAVES HIMSELF FROM THAT SICKENING THUD ON THE CANVAS! Observe the face of our Champion! Finnegan Wakefield has the biggest look of relief on his face as he is pulling himself up, bringing himself back up onto the top of that steel cage! Finnegan Wakefield has made it, he is now all alone on the top of that cage with no distractions! The Revenant looks like he was knocked unconscious from plummeting down into the ring! He’s out like a light, he’s done like dinner, there’s no reason for this match to keep going but Finnegan Wakefield wants to add that exclamation point to cap this off! This is a man who for a MONTH tested his competence, who questioned his killer instinct and legitimacy as Champion. This is his moment to soak in! Finnegan Wakefield stands tall over his opponent, primed for the checkmate! Finnegan looks around at the sold out crowd, he looks back at Revenant……..AIIIIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRRRRRRR RAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!
Kawajai: DOUBLE FOOT STOMP OFF OF THE CAGE, DRIVING THROUGH THE CHEST OF REVENANT WITH ENOUGH MOMENTUM TO CRACK EVERY LAST PIECE OF HIS RIBCAGE! REVENANT’S WHOLE BODY FOLDED FROM THAT WEIGHT HITTING HIM IN THE MIDSECTION, THERE’S NO AIR IN THOSE LUNGS OF HIS FOR SURE! FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD GOES BOUNCING OFF OF THE BODY OF REVENANT WITH A COMBAT ROLL AND THEN STICKS HIS ARM OUT, DRAPING IT OVER REVENANT’S CHEST! THE REFEREE RUSHES TO THE SCENE AND COUNTS IT! THIS MUST BE THE END! FOR THEIR OWN GOOD WE GOTTA BE ABLE TO CALL IT A NIGHT!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
(“Morning Glory” by Oasis plays as the referee checks the status of both men, signaling for the cage to be raised and motioning for EMTs. While they make their way to the ring a crew member hands him the New Breed Championship which he lays on top of Finnegan Wakefield who is too beat up to move.)
Rebecca Sawyer: The winner of this match…and SSTTTTIIIILLLLLL EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION….FINNNEEEGGGGAAAANNNNN WAKKKEEEEEFFFIIIIEEELLLLDDDDDDDD!!!!
Nick Angel: This is it. This is, without a doubt, the DEFINITIVE New Breed division match. This is what the New Breed Championship was made for! For that kind of high level competition, for that kind of passion, for two athletes like the ones we just witnessed to be able to make a name for themselves and get in the conversation! Finnegan Wakefield, Revenant, those two names are household names after that match! Those men have set their careers on paths to permanent main event stardom!
Kawajai: Without a doubt! I am proud to have called this match and will take pride in calling every match these guys have because they earned their stripes here tonight! Those two pushed themselves in ways not even you or I have had to experience in our careers! They lost enough blood to fill up a blood bank and even then they kept fighting! It took an unbelievable cage walk by Finnegan, something I don’t think will ever be duplicated in EAW history, and a breath-taking dive off of the cage to finally put an end to this match! Finnegan Wakefield has had some great wins, his match with Moongoose, his team’s win at Territorial Invasion, even his win at the Bhristmas Eve Voltage, but this to me might be his signature win! To be the winner of a match like this is something people won’t forget!
Nick Angel: Finnegan does not look like a winner after that war, only a survivor! He still hasn’t moved since the bell rung to signal the end! He needs some much deserved rest and relaxation – he might not even have any legs after that gutsy double foot stomp, but like you said, this is a signature win and a win that means he’s still New Breed Champion! Thank you all for tuning in to join us on this journey! It has been a pleasure to call tonight’s action! I’m Nick Angel signing off for my partner Kawajai, have a wonderful evening, we’ll see you next week!
Kawajai: GOODNIGHT EVERYBODY!
(The cage is fully raised up as the last shot we get for the night is EMTs examining both opponents who remain in the spot they were in following the pin. They put on their gloves and wipe up blood and shine flashlights into the eyes of both men, seeing if they’re conscious. The medics, and the viewers, get their answer as Finnegan mumbles a few words to show that he’s awake and Rev feebly swings at a doctor before we fade to black.)
