“The Raven Flies”
(“Bully” by Shinedown plays us in for our intro as we fade into the arena, doing a spin around the arena and going around different spots in the audience to show off the sold out crowd and the signs being held up by excited fans in attendance.)
Kawajai: Hello everyone and welcome to Voltage as we are LIVE from The Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon and we got a lot ahead of us tonight with a star studded card! For the first time ever in our main event Jamie O’Hara and Finnegan Wakefield will go one on one in a Champion vs Champion encounter!
Nick Angel: Along with that we got Chris Elite taking on El Ironico, Ryan Wilson vs Cody Marshall, another first time in Keelan Cetinich vs. Harvey Yorke and it’s fellow King of Elite Semi match: Cameron Ella Ava vs. Amadeus! You will not want to miss this show ladies and gentlemen so sit back, relax and get ready because things are about to get underway!
Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(“Leave” by R.E.M. blares through the public announce system, and wasting no time out comes Amadeus. Amadeus quickly scans the crowd from left to right before setting his sights directly toward the ring as he begins to make his way down the ramp.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first, he hails Naha, Okinawa Japan!…He weighs in at TWO-HUNDRED AND TWENTY POUNDS!…HE’S KNOWN AS THE RADICAL DREAMER, THE GRINNING DEMON, THE SAINT OF CHAINS!!!…HE’S AMMMMAAADEEEUUUSSSSSS!!!
Kawajai: He has arrived, Nick! The one and only “Radical Dreamer” of EAW in Amadeus! He’s been through a lot in recent times, not to mention his unfortunate loss of the coveted Interwire Championship that put him more on the map, especially here on Voltage!
Nick: You said it, Kawa, a man that has been working to re-invent himself through the many trials and tribulations he’s had to endure just to be here! Certainly losing the Interwire Championship in such controversial fashion hasn’t sat well with the now former. But last week in round one, in a great back and forth battle against Moongoose McQueen, it was this man Amadeus that came through when it counted most, and he’s to continue with that type of dominance this week.
(Amadeus is now in the ring using the ropes for extra leverage to stretch)
(“ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli immediately takes the place of R.E.M. as Cameron Ella Ava makes her way out from beyond the curtain. She gestures toward the crowd blowing a kiss sarcastically as they give her a mixed reaction.
Rebecca Sawyer: And introducing his opponent!…From LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA!…She weighs in at ONE-HUNDRED AND THIRTY POUNDS!…SHE’S KNOWN AS THE GODDESS OF EAW!…SHE IS CAMERON ELLAAAA AVAAAAA!!!
(Cameron starts making her way confidently down the ramp. She taunts the crowd with words that are inaudible as she approaches the ring.)
Kawajai: I hate to burst that bubble, Nick, I really do. You can’t speak of dominance without bringing up this amazing woman! Amadeus may have dreams of redeeming himself with by replacing that lost Interwire gold with a King of Elite crown, but Cameron doesn’t just dream, Nick, she grabs opportunities by doing whatever it takes to seize these moments! She immune to the pressure of tournaments like this! Her and The New EAW Champion over on Showdown, The Heart Break Gal have already journeyed through the Grand Prix tournament. I guarantee you, Nick, she looks at this tournament as another opportunity to add to her trophy case!
Nick: That may be, Kawa! Burst my bubble you did, Cameron is as accomplished as any mainstay in this company, but she’s still gotta prove it all over again in the ring like she or anyone else does any other week! Amadeus is no pushover, a former Interwire Champion, and a very prideful combative competitor, and if anyone has proven over time since coming to this brand that they define the words “continuous progress”, it’s Amadeus! I guarantee you he has what it takes to not only defeat this living legend right in the center of the ring, but win this entire tournament!
(Cameron is in the ring now in a neutral corner from Amadeus, her hands on her hips as the referee asks them both if they’re ready to begin the match. Both step out of their corners toward the center of the ring, and the referee signals for the match to begin.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: Both Cam and Amadeus begin to circle the ring cautiously for a moment before they ready themselves to lock up with a collar and elbow tie up with Amadeus taking the advantage during this exchange as he applies slightly more pressure with the headlock before transitioning into a hammerlock! Cam uses her strength though to reverse it into a hammerlock of her own, then transitions into a side headlock! Amadeus then uses his strength to send Cam to the ropes WITH CAM COMING BACK NOW WITH A KNOCKDOWN OF Amadeus! Cam uses the runs to the ropes again with Amadeus now dropping down as Cam hops over him into the ropes, and THIS TIME IT’S AMADEUS TAKING DOWN CAM COMING BACK WITH A PERFECTLY TELEGRAPHED ARM DRAG TAKEDOWN TO THE CANVAS RIGHT INTO AN ARM LOCK! Cam grimaces a bit as Amadeus looks to apply more pressure. Now Amadeus transitioning into a facelock on Cam seizing the advantage for the most part in the early going! Amadeus twisting Cam’s arm, and now with a clubbing blow to the forearm of Cam, and now quickly transitions into another headlock using his strength to bring Cam down to a knee now! The referee checking with Cam as she continues to gasp for small amounts of air! Cam now using her strength to slowly rise back up and shoving Amadeus to the ropes, and this time IT’S AMADEUS WITH A KNOCK DOWN OF CAM COMING BACK! AMADEUS RUNS TO THE ROPES AND THIS TIME IT’S CAM DROPPING DOWN WITH AMADEUS WITH THE MOMENTUM FROM THE ROPES COMING BACK BUT IT’S RIGHT INTO AN ARM DRAG TAKEDOWN BY CAM THIS TIME FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER ARM DRAG TAKEDOWN! CAM now with a sitdown grounded side headlock of Amadeus! Cam now lets go of the headlock and grabs the left arm of Amadeus and drops both of her knees down on the biceps area of that left arm of Amadeus who yelps slightly in pain! Now Cam back at it with the headlock!
Nick: You can just tell, Kawajai, that neither competitor wants to let the other gather too much momentum that could be nearly impossible to recover from! Both of these two warriors want to move on in this King of Elite Tournament! Amadeus now trying to rise back to a vertical base with Cam still applying pressure to that weakened arm of his! Cam now twisting that arm transitioning back toward a hammerlock but instead begins wrenching down on the arm of Amadeus, and again! Now Cam whips Amadeus to the ropes WHO COMES BACK THIS TIME WITH A ROLLING ELBOW THAT KNOCKS CAM INTO THE OPPOSITE ROPES! BUT CAM USES THE MOMENTUM OF THE ROPES COMES BACK WITH KNOCK BITCHES OUT!!! AND NOW CAM ON THE ATTACK OF THE DOWNED AMADEUS WITH CLOSED FISTED SHOTS TO THE FACE OF AMADEUS!!! CAM GRABS AMADEUS TO HIS KNEES AND THEN SENDS HIM BACK DOWN WITH A ROLLING WHEEL KICK! CAM IS SURELY THE AGGRESSOR NOW AS SHE PURSUES THE DOWNED AMADEUS WHO IS SLOWLY CRAWLING TOWARD THE ROPES! Cam now has Amadeus pinned on the second rope! NOW SHE’S CHOKING HIM ACROSS THE SECOND ROPE AND THE REFEREE GIVING THE MANDATORY FIVE COUNT!
Kawajai: The referee getting in there now pulling Cam away admonishing Cam. Everyone wants to see a clear cut winner in this important matchup, and that’s what the referee is trying to accomplish by keeping this match going! Now Cam with clubbing forearm shots to the back of Amadeus! Cam grabs Amadeus up now sends a right to the head of Amadeus, and now with a KNIFE-EDGED CHOP, AND ANOTHER, AND ANOTHER! Cam whips Amadeus now, Cam drops down again with Amadeus coming back! Amadeus hops over Cam who quickly rises back up to a vertical base, BUT WAIT AMADEUS SMARTLY HOLDS ON TO THE ROPES! CAM WASN’T ANTICIPATING THIS! NOW AMADEUS WITH THE SCISSORS KICK TO CAM SENDING HER FACE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS! AMADEUS GRABS CAM UP BY HER HEAD AND STARTS LAYING INTO HER WITH CLOSED FISTED SHOTS OF HIS OWN! It’s literally one upsmanship with these two right now! NOW THE STANDING SHIRANUI BY AMADEUS! HE QUICKLY CRAWLS OVER TO HOOK CAM’S LEG!
Nick: And Cam’s still in it, and I think Amadeus knows that he has to put more offense together to pull this off! Amadeus rises back to his feet now as does Cam! Amadeus whips Cam to the ropes and looks for a PELE KICK ON CAM COMING BACK! NOOO!!! CAM AVOIDS THE CONTACT, AND CAM NOW LOOKING FOR BREAKING BARRIERS BUT AMADEUS WIGGLES FREE! AMADEUS GOES FOR SEEING SPARKS! THE MOVE ADOPTED FROM THE LATE BRODY SPARKS! BUT CAM NOW BREAKS FREE FROM THE CLUTCHES OF AMADEUS! AND!!???? GODDESS TOUCH!!! SHE GOT HIM!!! BUT SOMEHOW SOME WAY AMADEUS WITH THE WHEREWITHAL AND PERFECT RING AWARENESS FALLS TOWARD THE ROPES ROLLING TO THE OUTSIDE! CAM CAN’T BELIEVE IT! SHE’S BESIDE HERSELF! THE REFEREE BEGINS HIS COUNT! Cam looking to take a bit of a breather as she paces in the ring awaiting Amadeus to recover!
Kawajai: Cam now steps through the ropes now! She wants that clear cut win, and she had every chance to let Amadeus be counted out here! This in fact breaks the initial count by the referee. Cam now stomps away at Amadeus who tries to cover up but to no avail. Cam grabs Amadeus by his hair to bring him back to a vertical base again! THIS TIME CAM SLAMS THE FACE OF AMADEUS INTO THE STEEL RINGSTEPS!! AMADEUS’ HEAD BOUNCING OFF AS HE LOOKS TO ESCAPE THE ATTACK OF CAM, BUT CAM IN CLOSE PURSUIT! CAM NOW PICKING UP AMADEUS AND DROPPING HIM OVER THE RINGSIDE BARRICADE AND BACK DOWN HE GOES! Cam now rolls back inside to break the referee’s count again and then rolls back to the outside! This time Amadeus is returning to the ring, and Cam is climbing up on the turnbuckle to ready herself for her next attack! Amadeus stumbling AND HERE COMES CAM WITH….GLASS CEILING!!! CAM GOES FOR THE COVER!! THIS COULD BE IT!!!
Nick: WOW!!! What courage and tenacity it took to kick out of that maneuver, AMADEUS, INCREDIBLE!!! AND CAM ONCE AGAIN CAN’T BELIEVE HER EYES! SHE HOLDS UP THREE FINGERS BUT NO THE REFEREE INSISTS TWO!! Man it was close! Cam grabbing Amadeus up again, BUT AMADEUS NOW WITH WHAT HE CALLS ORAORAORA – COMBINATION LEFTS AND RIGHTS!! AND NOW A THRUST KICK TO FINALLY TAKE KILLA CAM DOWN! AND HE’S NOT FINISHED! AMADEUS GOING UP TOP NOW! CALAMITAS’!!! HE NAILS IT! AND CAM IS OUT!!! AMADEUS BACK ON HIS FEET AND SIGNALS FOR THE END HERE AND THE FANS FOR THE FIRST TIME TONIGHT ARE ACTUALLY UP IN ANTICIPATION GETTING BEHIND THIS MAN!! WAIT!!? WHAT’S THIS??? WHY ARE THE LIGHTS FLICKERING ALL OF A SUDDEN??? AMADEUS LOOKS AROUND JUST AS CONFUSED AS ANYONE ELSE!!??
(Cameras transition toward the entrance way. Then footage of a pack of Wolves are shown from a dark wilderness setting. Amadeus’ attention is completely diverted toward the direction of Voltage Titantron. The final live image is of a single Wolf howling toward the camera before the screen goes black again. Amadeus holds his arms out still confused.)
Kawajai: AND CAM’S UP!! AMADEUS TURNS AROUND! LOOK OUT!! GODDESS TOUCH!!! CAM QUICKLY SCRAMBLES TO HOOK THE LEG!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli picks back up as Cameron Ella Ava slowly sits up on her knees before finally rising back to her feet. The referee raises her hand in victory.)
Rebecca Sawyer: The winner of this match…CAMERON ELLLAAA AVVAAA!!!
Nick: I’m not sure what we just saw on the tron their, Kawa, shades of Kenny Drake and the Wolvesden perhaps. It was certainly enough to take Amadeus’ attention off the task at hand. Amadeus now coming to realizing what has transpired as he holds his head.
Kawajai: I’m not sure what we just saw, Nick, but if it was a sign of things to come. If in fact Kenny Drake had something to do with what just transpired, I’m sure the coming weeks will tell us a lot as things continue to unfold!
(Amadeus is seen sliding under the bottom rope speaking inaudibly as he stares up at the stage area as the screen fades.)

Why did it have to be Cosplayers?” Will Hanks James be able to stop the trade or will it be his last donut ever? Find out after Sunday Night Voltage!)
(DING DING DING!!)
Rebecca Sawyer: The following is a singles match set for one fall or submission!
(‘Psyched Out’ by The Supersuckers plays as Ryan Wilson comes out to a roaring ovation)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, weighing in at 230 lbs… He is the Jerk with the Mouth…. RYAAAN WILLLLLLLLSOOOOOON!
Nick Angel: Ryan Wilson having a blast here on Voltage, despite a rocky start here, you can tell he’s having the time of his life, posing with the crowd, and running around like a lunatic.
Kawajai: Yeah, that’s cool and all, but he seems to like picking fights all over the place, I mean, I don’t know if you keep up with the feed, but this man has been purposely antagonizing the likes of guys like Finnegan Wakefield, Lars Grier, and even his opponent for the evening, Cody Marshall.
(‘California Love’ by 2Pac ft. Dr. Dre as Cody Marshall comes out to booes)
Rebecca Sawyer: And his opponent, from Hollywood, California, weighing in at 305 lbs, Cody…. “A-List” Marshaaaaaaall!
Kawajai: I’m sure this man is looking forward to shut this man up tonight. I mean, I think a lot of people are hoping for that.
Nick Angel: Hey now, the guy is just having the time of his life, and he has spunk, gotta give him credit for that.
Kawajai: But you know what the issue with Ryan is? He thinks he’s funny. But it’s just aggravating and annoying, but you know who is hilarious? Cody Marshall and his show, Bad Cops. I laugh so hard, and honestly, if Cody were to wreck Ryan’s shit tonight, I’d be laughing all night as well.
Nick Angel: Ryan is kind of funny…. In small doses.
(DING DING DING!)
Kawajai: This match is underway now as these two men go toe to toe. Cody posing for the crowd to booes and Ryan Wilson swaying back in forth, light on his feet. Both these men are like night and in terms of styles in the ring and out of it.
Nick Angel: Yeah, but they are both crazy if you ask me. Cody and Ryan lock in, and Cody Marshall manages to push Ryan Wilson backwards . Ryan charges back up and Cody with a big shoulder block, knocking Wilson down with Authority. Cody drops the elbow, but Ryan rolls out of the way.
Kawajai: Ryan spring back up, off the ropes and drops a flashing elbow on Cody. Cody getting back to his feet, but Ryan with overhead blows to Cody now, And Ryan Wilson leaps into the air with a double axe handle to the back of the neck. Cody drops to one knee, but Cody pushes Ryan backwards. Ryan stumble backwards, but uses the momentum, bounces off the ropes, and springs forward.
Nick Angel: BUT CODY MARSHALL WITH A BIG BOOT! Ryan back up to his feet, but Cody has his hands wrapped around the throat of Wilson. He shoves Wilson into the corner now, planting his heel against the throat of Ryan as he chokes him with his boot. The ref making the count.
One! Two! Three! Four!….
Kawajai: Cody breaks the hold as Ryan clutches to his throat. Cody picking Ryan over the shoulders now, he takes him over to the corner once more and drops him… SNAKE EYES. Cody runs off the ropes, AND A HUGE CLOTHESLINES CONNECTS!! HOOKS THE LEG!
Nick Angel: Nope. Not enough to put Ryan down. Cody stomping away at Wilson now as Ryan tries to recover and get back to his feet. Cody with clubbing blows now, Ryan with multiple jabs to the gut, but Cody with a stiff elbow to the top of Ryan’s skull, pummeling him back down. Cody Marshall just over powering Ryan Wilson at every moment.
Kawajai: Cody Marshall with the irish whip now, he goes for the clothesline, but Ryan ducks under, he rebounds into a flying cross body, BUT CODY CATCHES HIM MID AIR! OH NO! Cody goes for the spinning side walk slam, he spins…. BUT RYAN WILSON MANAGES TO CATCH CODY MARSHALL’S ARM… ARM BAR!! HE GOES FOR THE CRIPPLER CROSS FACE, BUT CODY MARSHALL BLOCKING THE HOLD WITH OTHER ARM.
Nick Angel: Cody pushing himself and Ryan up now and Wilson is just riding and hanging on to his arm now. NO, HE LIFTS RYAN WILSON OVER THE SHOULDER NOW, HE GOES FOR THE DVD! THE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER….. LETHAL INJECTION BY RYAN WILSON FOR THE COUNTER, FACE PLANTING CODY MARSHALL!
Kawajai: Ryan on the offense now as he drops the flashing elbow! And another. AND A THIRD FOR GOOD MEASURE. Cody getting back up, but Ryan with the Italian Mafia Kick to the temple of Cody. Wilson from behind now as he applies an inverted head lock from behind…. AND DRIVES THE KNEE INTO THE BACK FOR THE BACKBREAKER! Ryan still as that head lock applies, and he drives the knee to the back of Cody once more. HEAD LOCK STILL LOCKED IN, AND THIS TIME, RYAN LIFTS CODY MARSHALL UP… AND THE BACK BREAKER CONNECTS!! SHOULDERS DOWN!!
Nick Angel: Kickout by Cody! Ryan aggressively stomping away at Cody now, but Marshall refuses to stay down. Ryan runs off the ropes as he goes for another Mafia Kick, but Cody catches him with a choke hold. HE LIFTS RYAN INTO THE AIR FOR THE CHOKE SLAM!! BUT RYAN COUNTERS INTO A TORNADO DDT OF DEATH!! DROPPING CODY’S HEAD ON TO THE MAT! OUCH! RYAN HAS THIS! HOOKS THE LEG!!
Kawajai: NO!! CODY RAISING THE SHOULDER JUST MILLISECONDS AWAY! Ryan grabbing the legs of Cody Marshall now, AND HE GOES FOR THE FOURTH WALL BREAK… CODY TRYING TO FIGHT IT OFF AS RYAN TRIES TO TURN CODY ONTO HIS BELLY, BUT CODY CONTINUES TO RESIST. CODY PULLING RYAN TOWARDS HIM NOW, AND KICKS FORWARD TO SEND RYAN THOUGH THE ROPES!
Nick Angel: WILSON HOLDING ON TO THE SECOND ROPE AS HE LANDS ON THE APRON. Cody getting back up as Ryan follows. Cody is up first, as he takes aim and measure. CODY WITH THE DISCUS HEEL KICK, BUT RYAN DUCKS AND COUNTERS WITH A ROPE HUNG FRONT KICK! CODY STAGGERS BACKWARDS NOW. Ryan Wilson springboards off the top ropes, and he turns….

THE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER CONNECTS!!
Nick Angel: Cody gloating now as Ryan lies flat on his back in the middle of the ring now. Cody just slapping the mask of Ryan now, taunting him, and Cody goes up to the second rope now. The crowd booes as Cody begins his ascension now. Cody taking a proverbial snapshot of Ryan’s lifeless body now and he is now perched… HE TAKES A LEAP…. THE SECOND AMENDMENT LEGDROP….. NOTHING BUT AIR AS RYAN ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND!
Kawajai: RYAN CRAWLING TO THE CORNER TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET NOW, CODY TRYING TO GET BACK ON A VERTICAL BASE AS WELL, AND RYAN CHARGES AND THE LOU THEZ PRESS CONNECTS AS RYAN UNLEASHES OF FLURRY OF BLOWS LEFT AND RIGHT. Wilson taking a stance now as he stalks Marshall, and kick to the gut! HE GOES FOR THE MIC DROP, BUT CODY MARSHALL WITH A BACK BODY DROP.

Nick Angel: But Ryan Wilson manages to slip off and the swinging neck breaker connects! Ryan Wilson kips up and raises his fist into the air. He opens his fist into the figurative mic drop to signal for end. Kick to the gut as he goes for the MIC DROP! HE PICKS CODY UP, BUT CODY PUSHES HIM AWAY AND SLINKS OUT OF THE RING NOW.
Kawajai: Cody slamming his fist onto the apron in pure and utter frustration as if Ryan Wilson continuous has his number over and over. But Ryan Wilson goes for the baseball slide, but Cody moves out of the way! Ryan lands on his feet, BUT LOOK AT CODY MARSHALL GOING FOR THAT’S A WRAPTURE, NO, HIS HANDS AREN’T WRAPPING AROUND THE THROAT OF RYAN WILSON! ITS ON HIS MASK! CODY MARSHALL IS TRYING TO REMOVE THE MASK OF RYAN WILSON AND RYAN IS HOLDING ON TO IT FOR DEAR LIFE!
Nick Angel: Referee starting the count now as Cody and Ryan continues to tangle outside of the ring over the mask. AND CODY GAINING THE UPPERHAND AS WE SEE THE LOWER PORTION OF RYAN WILSON’S FACE. HE’S WHITE, BY THE WAY!
Kawajai: WELL, THE MAN IS CANADIAN, I COULD HAD GUESSED THAT. BUT RYAN WILSON WITH A KICK TO THE GUT AND CODY RELEASES. RYAN SCRAMBLING TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING AS HE TRIES TO READJUST HIS MASK NOW.
THREE…. FOUR….. FIVE!
Nick Angel: CODY FROM BEHIND, BUT HE IS STILL GOING FOR THE MASK INSTEAD, CODY PULLING FROM THE LACES AS RYAN TRYING TO USE ONE HAND TO KEEP HIS MASK IN TACT AND THE OTHER WITH THE ELBOW! CODY JUST MALICIOUSLY TARGETING THAT MASK, AND YOU CAN SEE THAT SADISTIC SMILE ON HIS FACE. This is hard to watch, even Tomi.
Kawajai: DID YOU JUST MAKE A PUN THERE JUST NOW? THIS IS NOT THE TIME FOR THAT, AS RYAN WILSON GRABS THE HEAD OF CODY MARSHALL AND DROPS DOWN WITH A JAW BREAKER. Cody stumbles backwards now… RYAN’S MASK TORN, EXPOSING THE SIDE OF HIS FACE NOW, BUT IF HE GETS BACK IN THE RING! He could still win this!

(DING DING DING!!)
Rebecca Sawyer: Due to a count out, the result of this match was a No Contest!
Kawajai: RYAN WILSON AND CODY ARE STILL GOING AT IT AS BOTH MEN EXCHANGING BLOW FOR BLOW, THE REFEREE TRYING TO BREAK THESE TWO MEN APART, BUT THEY CONTINUE TO BRAWL, AND MARSHALL KICKING AWAY THE REF!
Nick Angel: MORE OFFICIALS ARE MAKING THEIR WAY DOWN THE RING AS THEY PRY RYAN WILSON OFF CODY. AND CODY CONTINUES TO GRASP AND REACH OUT TOWARDS RYAN WILSON’S MASK. RYAN TRYING TO BREAK FREE BUT SECURITY IS ESCORTING HIM TO THE BACK.
Kawajai: MORE LIKE DRAGGING HIM KICKING AND SCREAMING, AS CODY MARSHALL FINALLY DROPS IT, BUT LOOK AT THAT FACE, ALMOST AS IF HE ENJOYED ALMOST RIPPING OFF RYAN’S MASK! YOU CAN’T GO OUT DOING THAT. THIS ISN’T HOLLYWOOD. NO MEANS NO! CODY MARSHALL!
Nick Angel: I doubt this will be the last we see of this, but Ryan Wilson better watch out, because I think we now know loud and clear what Cody is after. Whether it’s a sick game for him or to expose THE Ryan Wilson, we don’t know yet. But stay tune and find out. Stick around!
( EARLIER TODAY. )
(Chris Elite and Big Mike are shown in the office of General Manager Kenny Drake along with Niki Khan)
Niki Khan: Alright guys, I just received a text from Kenny and he said he will be here shortly.
Big Mike: I wish he would hurry up, I have things to do. My girl just hit me up and I gotta help little Sheldon with his homework.
Chris Elite: He has straight A’s and you didn’t even graduate why would he need your help fool!? You are right though I am running out of patience here, we’ve waiting like ten, fifteen minutes! I thought I was meant to be a top priority now! I’m one of the highest paid in EAW, I beat Mr. DEDEDE, but I can’t even have my boss meet me on time? I mean what is the point of having this contract just so I can demand title shots?
Niki Khan: I don’t know why you continually complain about that, anyone would want to be in your shoes with just that perk of the Gawd Contract alone.
Chris Elite: That’s the difference between me and them, Niki. They are satisfied with just little things, I want everything that this contract comes with not just one thing. I could get a million title shots off my talent alone, what I’m after is the power and the treatment of a Gawd. So you text Kenny Drake and you tell him to get in here now…
(Kenny Drake walks into his office as his expression changes immediately upon having his eyes on Chris and Big Mike. He stands in front of the door, looking both men up and down before letting out a huge sigh.)
Kenny Drake: So what is it you want today, Chris? Niki has been blowing up my phone for a good time now saying you were waiting for me. Shouldn’t you be getting ready for a match?
Chris Elite: I’m not worried about that match at the moment I am worried about you. You know what this contract allows me to do and yet I haven’t been able to do any of those things yet. So with that being said Kenny that’s why I am here. I want to be treated like a star, I want to be the center, I want to run things and get the media talking! I’ve spoke with my team and we’ve put together the perfect idea: I want to host an episode of Voltage. Which means I get to pick what matches these fucking bozos on the roster participate in. I get to choose everything that goes down that night and you have the night off so you can’t interfere or tell me what to do.
Kenny Drake: We have things coming up though you can’t just suddenly takeover the show when you feel like it. We have the King of Elite Voltage finals to prepare for and I have other things to be dealt with. So I’m afraid tha-
Chris Elite: I’m afraid I don’t give a damn B, I am taking over Voltage whether you like it or not because my contract says I can. I went over your heads and talked to Mr. DEDEDE myself; RTR match or not he knows not leave money on the table with the drawing power I have and he ended up saying it was a fine idea. Big Bhris has the control for a night and if you were wondering what show I plan on taking over, I plan on taking over the Bhristmas Eve edition of Voltage.
Kenny Drake: “Bhristmas”? Do you mean Christmas? Can we stop with all the B’s? It’s starting to hurt my head.
Big Mike: Well if you don’t hurry up and agree to his terms I am going to hurt your head B, so come on just say yes we have things to do.
Kenny Drake: Excuse me were you saying something Big Mike? Do you want me to get Jamie to hang you off a balcony again?
(Big Mike jumps up to his feet the minute Kenny finishes his sentence but Chris Elite holds him back and tells him to calm down.)
Kenny Drake: Yeah that’s right you listen to Chris before you get the both of you in trouble. Also fine you can have the “Bhristmas” Eve edition of Voltage. I want to spend time with my family anyway.
Chris Elite: That’s what I like to hear. I’m going to make the reservations now. Big Mike make sure to get tons of Henny, a couple of Cardi B hoes to be your little helpers and some presents for the children. This is going to be the best Voltage of 2017 so maybe you’ll pick up on a few things Kenny like how to make a show entertaining.
Big Mike: Facts, we out of here B and you better not let me catch you anywhere outside of EAW Kenny.
(The camera cuts back to present time in the arena where the ring announcer stands in the middle of the ring, as “Es Ironico” by Bocca Myers blasts through the PA with a wave of cheers erupting in the crowd, as El Ironico comes out through the curtains, high-fiving the fans and looking slightly intoxicated.)
Ring Announcer: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL! Introducing first, from Doncaster, England! Weighing in at 195 POOUNDSS!!!……HE IS “THE IRONIC LUCHADOR” EEELLLLLLLLL IRRRRROOOOOONIICCOOOO!!!!!
Kawajai: One of the most unique personalities to have ever stepped into an EAW ring, tonight El Ironico looks to bounce off from his failure to move on into the King of Elite tournament with a win under his belt, but it will be a challenge, especially since the man he is coming up against tonight is none other than the Gawd Contract holder, Chris Elite!
Nick Angel: Tonight, he’s the underdog heading into the match, but we wonder if his quirkiness and his unorthodox style will be able to garner him the victory.
(“Many Men (Wish Death)” by 50 Cent blasts throughout the arena to an explosion of cheers from the New Orleans crowd, as Chris Elite walks out wearing his new “God Forgives, Elite Don’t” shirt. Big Mike trails behind him as he high fives fans heading to the ring.)
Ring Announcer: AND HERE IS HIS OPPONENT! From Brooklyn, New York! Weighing in at 210 POOUNDSS!!!…..HE IS “GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS”, CHRRRIISSSSSSS EEEELLITTEEEE!!!!
Nick Angel: And this is the challenge that Ironico will face tonight! A man who’s truly an example of a true “rags to riches” story in EAW, at Shock Value he came so, so close to becoming Champion and breaking Jamie O’Hara’s undefeated streak, but he decided to save Big Mike, a man who he considers more than his bodyguard, but his friend. That gained him the respect of the fans, and even now he doesn’t seem to be too affected with what occurred on that night.
Kawajai: Last Voltage he came off with an impressive victory over Nathan Fiora and as we just saw from earlier today Chris Elite is hitting that next level as he will be hosting a whole episode of Voltage! Let’s see if he can continue this streak of good luck with a win tonight.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Nick Angel: The bell has rung, as the two men eye one another, but it doesn’t appear that Elite is minding Ironico! He’s just playing to the crowd, adoring their cheers, but he returns his focus back to Ironico in the ring as the two meet up for a collar-and-elbow tie-up..No! Ironico able to gain the early advantage as he rolls behind Chris and drops him down into a north/south position! Ironico shifts to Elite who is down on the mat and grabs him with a facelock, slowly lifting him back up, but Chris Elite is able to maneuver out of it as he grabs the arm of Ironico and twist it, turning it into an arm wrench. Ironico however begins to think, and quickly tries to escape as he rolls along the mat, trying to escape, and he succeeds, grabbing Elite behind with the waistlock! Chris Elite however runs towards the rope as he grabs the top rope and sends Ironico rolling backwards, as both competitors rush back to their feet!
Kawjai: IRONICO RUSHES IN FOR A CLOTHESLINE! ELITE DUCKS IT! He runs and bounces off the ropes, as Ironico turns around LOOKING FOR ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE! CHRIS DODGES IT AGAIN! He dodges it and runs to the ropes, gaining momentum, as he now springs off the middle rope and comes back to the turning El Ironico! SPRINGBOARD ENZIGURI TO THE SIDE OF IRONICO’S HEAD, WOW! Ironico drops down like a sack of bricks onto the mat, but it doesn’t appear that Elite is done as he runs off the adjacent ropes and comes back, HITTING A LOW DROPKICK TO THE SIDE OF THE KNEELING IRONICO’S HEAD! IRONICO IS DOWN AS ELITE DROPS AND HOOKS HIS LEG!
Nick Angel: Ironico manages to kickout! Despite not seeming like it, Ironico is someone who you need to watch out for, somebody who has an uncanny amount of resilience, and this shows in this match! Elite doesn’t appear surprised however, as he stands back up and begins to the play to the crowd yet again who is completely behind him! It doesn’t even appear that Elite cares at all about this match, almost to the point of not trying! I wonder how that will affect Ironico’s mindset, who right now is slowly beginning to get back up to his feet….but Chris Elite realizes this as he now runs towards Ironico! RUNNING DROPKICK TO THE CHEST! IRONICO CATCHES ELITE IN A THESZ PRESS! HE PUMMELS HIM INTO THE MAT WITH RIGHTS AND LEFTS, IRONICO CAUGHT BIG BHRIS OFF GUARD! Ironico with some offense in this match, as he now rises back to his feet, and lifts Chris Elite back up to a vertical base….HE DROPS HIM WITH AN INVERTED ATOMIC DROP! Ironico dropping Elite right on that no no square, as he runs off the ropes….AND LOOK AT THIS! IRONICO IS ATTEMPING TO SPRING OFF THE ROPES! WILL THIS BE A LUCHA MOVE WE WILL SEE TONIGHT?
Kawjai: ….NOPE! IRONICO JUST SLIPS OFF THE ROPES AND FALLS BACK INTO THE MAT! Ouch! He tried to do a lucha move but it didn’t appear to work out in his favor, Ironico really does need to find a new line of work if he advertises himself as a luchador. Chris Elite who is now back in his right mind, looks confused at the downed Ironico who is grabbing onto the ropes, slowly lifting himself back up into a seated position…but that gives Elite the chance for him to strike! He bounces off the parallel ropes facing Ironico, AND HITS HIM WITH A DEVASTATING PENALTY KICK ACROSS THE CHEST! WHO SHOT YA! Chris Elite with that penalty kick absolutely shooting Ironico in the chest, and it looks like he wants to end it now! Chris lifts Ironico up by his waist….AND DROPS HIM WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT HE DOESN’T RELEASE THE HOLD! He keeps Ironico within his grasp as he rolls through, and places Ironico into an Electric chair position! AND THERE IT IS! THE ONE WINGED ANGEL CONNECTS, DRIVING IRONICO DOWN INTO THE MAT! THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT, THE DEVASTATING COMBINATION OF MOVES SENDS IRONICO DOWN AS ELITE KEEPS HIS SHOULDERS DOWN FOR THE WIN!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Many Men (Wish Death)” by 50 Cent plays as Chris Elite stands up, nonchalantly raising his hands up as Big Mike cheers in the ringside area.)
Ring Announcer: AND HERE IS YOUR WINNER……CHRRRRIIISSSSS EEEEELLIITTTEEEEEE!!!!!!
Nick Angel: And here goes Chris Elite with yet another impressive victory to add up! It didn’t even look like he tried or cared about this match at all, ending it swiftly with a Who Shot Ya and a Long Kiss Goodnight to finish Ironico off. Big Bhris Elite stands tall tonight yet again, the Gawd Contract in his hands and glory for Chris Elite in his sights.
Kawajai: Yet another victory in the cap for Chris Elite, building momentum as he looks ahead into 2018 along with the final Voltage of 2017: Bhristmas season is upon us! I honestly cannot wait to see what goes down!
(The camera pans over to a beaming Rebecca Sawyer, who is standing in the center of the ring. She waits for the fanfare to die down a bit before bringing the microphone up to her lips.)
Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Kawajai: I have to admit, I’m really looking forward to this one. Two former champions, two potential future flagbearers of this brand, with two radically different styles of handling business are about to lock horns, and truthfully–
(The commentary is suddenly cut off by “John the Revelator” — Curtis Stiger and the Forest Rangers hitting the PA system, and the crowd responds with a sizable pop for the impending (and apparently unexpected) arrival of Kevin Devastation. The Hall of Famer coolly strides down the ramp and the ring announcer hurriedly interjects through the cheers.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome…EAW HALL OF FAMER…“THEEEEE LONE LEGEND”…KEVIIIIIIIIIIIN DEEEEEEEEEVASTATION!
Nick Angel: I think you spoke too soon, partner! Before we even get to the action, it looks like this crowd on hand is welcoming the one and only Kevin Devastation, and it looks like he’s heading this way!
(The ringside attendant quickly shoves a rolling chair in the general direction of the announce table and unfurls a headset cord, plugging it and handing it to Kevin as he takes a seat in the booth.)
Kawajai: Kevin, welcome. I won’t foolishly ask if you have a vested interest in this match, because…
Kevin Devastation: I’m just out here to get a front row seat to whatever this kid THINKS he can do. I can promise I’ll be hands-off for the time being. The tape I’ve watched hasn’t impressed me at all, so I’m thinking seeing Fiora live and in color might change my mind. But something tells me I’ll realize all over again just how far in over his head he is.
(“You Will Know Our Name” — ACE+ hits to a mixed reaction. A characteristically energetic Moongoose McQueen bounds out into view, grinning ear to ear as he strums an imaginary air guitar as he makes his way down the ramp.)
Nick Angel: Moongoose McQueen has all the potential to embark on a red-hot run. Say what you want about his bizarre antics, but this dude’s already proven that he’s championship material. Not to mention his stellar recent outing against Cameron Ella Ava.
Kawajai: He’s got all the tools to be a real problem, he’s already shown that. Tonight, though, he’s up against someone with a lot to prove to our…broadcast colleague, and he could very well end up on the wrong side of a disgruntled Nathan Fiora wanting to send a message.
Rebecca Sawyer: IIIIIIIINTRODUCING FIRST! FROM AUSTIN, TEXAS…WEIGHING IN AT 236 POUNDS…“THEEEEEEE DUKE”…MOOOOOOOOONGOOSE MCQUEEEEEEEEEEEN!
(“The Reality” — Memphis May Fire hits and the audience’s reaction promptly switches to rousing boos. A scowling Nathan Fiora stomps through the curtain, shouting “THIS IS YOUR REALITY!” at the top of his lungs. He makes his way down the aisle, his eyes locked on Kevin behind the table as he goes.)
Rebecca Sawyer: AAAAAAND HIS OPPONENT! FROM CHICAGO, ILLINOIS…WEIGHING IN AT 211 POUNDS…“NO MERCY”…NATHAAAAAAAAN FIOOOOOOOOOORA!
Kevin Devastation: (chuckles) Well, well, well, if it isn’t the dead man walking.
Kawajai: That…doesn’t sound like something that someone who’s going to be “hands off” would say.
Kevin Devastation: What? I didn’t say he’d be a dead man TONIGHT.
Nick Angel: Some people are saying that Nathan Fiora must have a death wish to call for Kevin Devastation’s head the way that he has. Others say he’s choosing the perfect opponent to use to make an emphatic statement about his EAW future. Either point could be argued, but in the meantime, he needs to worry about tonight — and about McQueen.
(Nathan’s music feeds out and the referee is ready to call for the bell. All the while, his glare is fixed on Kevin.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: OH, JUST WHEN I WAS GONNA CRITIQUE NATHAN FOR NOT KEEPING HIS EYE ON MOONGOOSE, HE PIVOTS AS SOON AS THE BELL RINGS AND RUNS RIGHT AT MCQUEEN! HE SWINGS WILDLY FOR A CLOTHESLINE AND MISSES BY A MILE!
Kevin Devastation: Doesn’t he think it’s too early to be screwing up this bad?
Kawajai: Moongoose ducks the clothesline attempt with EASE, and Nathan is hurrying to turn around and face him! As soon as he’s face-to-face with McQueen again, he instantly gets lit up with a SICKENING sounding backhand chop! Jesus, the sound of hand on skin almost sounded like it echoed! Fiora goes to clutch his chest, but Moongoose hits a second backhand chop! A third! A fourth! He’s stringing them together here and he backs Nathan into a corner! Fiora’s been off-kilter since the second the bell rang, and I think it’s got everything to do with this man here at ringside!
Kevin Devastation: But the punk thinks he’s ready to put me on my ass? Playing this tape back would be the only response I’d need.
Kawajai: Fiora hasn’t been focused, he swung wildly just as the match was beginning, and McQueen’s been making him pay for the error in judgment! Moongoose turns his back to the still cornered Fiora, reaching over his shoulder before taking Nathan up and over with a snapmare. OUCH! A simple, sound shoot kick to the back rattles the spine of Fiora! Moongoose leaps over him, taking a few steps back and sizing him up. He charges back in Fiora’s direction…SLIDING CLOTHESLINE! Nathan’s been flattened already, and McQueen scrambles into the first pin of the match! Cover!
Nick Angel: Fiora throws that shoulder up just after one! Nathan stays alive, and Moongoose stays on him! He rushes back in and quickly slaps on a tight side headlock to keep Fiora neutralized. McQueen is rising up to his feet and dragging Nathan right along with him.
OH! Fiora throws an elbow back into the ribs of the Texan in an effort to break free, but McQueen is hanging tough! There’s another! And another! Moongoose relinquishes his grip, but he reaches out with a hand…he yanks on a handful of Fiora’s hair and takes him back down with a rear mat slam! He’s about to follow it up with the standing elbow drop…NO! Fiora rolls out of the way, and Moongoose quickly lurches up to a seated position, holding his afflicted elbow! OUCH! And there’s a low dropkick to the side of the head from Fiora, laying McQueen out! The Chicagoan moves into the lateral press!
Kawajai: It’s only good enough for a count of one! Fiora is keeping the pressure on, wasting no time peeling Moongoose from the canvas and spinning him around to slap on a rear waistlock. He heaves McQueen up and over…AN ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL GERMAN SUPLEX! And there’s the bridge! The shoulders of the former New Breed Champion are down!
Nick Angel: McQueen kicks out of the bridge with gusto, much to the chagrin of Fiora. He leaps up to his feet and starts stomping on the arms, legs, and torso of McQueen, look at this viciousness! Fiora’s trying to get a full-on onslaught kicked off here, but the official inserts himself into the fray, warning him to back off or face catching a disqualification loss. Nathan begrudgingly halts what he’s doing. What’s he doing now? The smart thing to do would be to go right back to working Moongoose over, but he’s making a beeline for the ropes! He’s glaring right in Kevin’s direction!
Nathan Fiora (off-mic): Watch what I do to this idiot, old man! This is gonna be your reality!
Kawajai: Strong words from Fiora as he stalks back over to McQueen! He readies himself, he jumps…STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS! WAIT NO! MOONGOOSE GOT THE KNEES UP! WHAT A WISE MOVE! Nathan decided to jaw jack and it cost him, as he’s now in pain on the mat clutching his midsection! LOOK ALIVE! Moongoose gets to a vertical base, he pulls Nathan up as well…GOODNESS! McQueen IMMEDIATELY grounds Fiora again with a forceful swinging neckbreaker! Here comes the next cover!
Referee: ONEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOO!
Nick Angel: Nathan stays in this contest, and he’s lucky that’s the case! Trying to showboat for Kevin here nearly ended his night prematurely. If he knows what’s good for him, he won’t do that again! Both men are getting up to their feet now, and Fiora strikes first with a THUNDEROUS forearm that catches Moongoose right on the bridge of the nose! The Austin native staggers backward, and just as he gets his bearings back…SUPERKICK ON THE MONEY!
Kawajai: NO! YOU SPOKE TOO SOON! MCQUEEN SIDESTEPS THE ATTEMPT BY FIORA! GOOD GOD, HE LETS OFF A SUPERKICK OF HIS OWN, AND THIS ONE CONNECTS! FIORA’S BEEN DROPPED! MCQUEEN MOVES INTO THE COVER AND HOOKS THE LEG!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOO!
Nick Angel: I’ve never seen Nathan this unfocused! It seems like he can’t mount any meaningful momentum here against McQueen. Moongoose is looking to continue to take advantage of this fact if it means him staying in the driver’s seat. He grabs a handful of hair to pull Fiora to his feet, and he hooks him up with a full nelson soon thereafter! He’s looking for a dragon suplex! But here comes the desperation move from Fiora in the form of a blind headbutt thrown back into the face of McQueen! Whatever works, I suppose! He cracks Moongoose right in the nose and forces him to back off! Nathan follows it up with a NASTY calf kick, and Moongoose is down! Nathan scrambles into the cover!
Referee: ONEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO!
Kawajai: We’re not quite done, and Nathan looks more irate than ever before. That’s saying something. With a huff, he stoops and forcefully hefts McQueen up. I don’t think this is gonna end well for Moongoose! WHEELBARROW BELLY TO BACK FACEBUSTER, GOOD GRIEF! MCQUEEN EATS CANVAS, AND…wait, this loon isn’t going for a pin? Fiora, c’mon, stop making rookie mistakes!
Nick Angel: Against his better judgment, Nathan is making a beeline for the nearest corner! He’s scaling the ropes and ascending up to the top turnbuckle! He’s got his back turned to the downed Moongoose, and this capacity crowd is buzzing, anticipating his next move!
Nathan Fiora (no-mic): GET A GOOD LOOK AT YOUR FUTURE, KEVIN!
Nick Angel: FIORA LEAPS…GHOST WALKING INCOMING! HE’S GONNA NAIL THIS SPLIT-LEGGED MOONSAULT, AND THAT’LL SPELL THE END!
Kawajai: OR NOT! MOONGOOSE EVADES DISASTER BY ROLLING TOWARD THE CORNER! FIORA CRASHES AND BURNS IN SPECTACULAR FASHION! MCQUEEN DRAGS HIMSELF UP TO A VERTICAL BASE…BAM! HE RUNS RIGHT THROUGH NATHAN WITH A PINPOINT-ACCURATE RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE, AND NATHAN IS STARING UP AT THE LIGHTS! MOONGOOSE ISN’T DONE! HE MAKES HIS WAY TOWARD THE SAME CORNER WHERE NATHAN JUST WAS, AND HE CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP IN QUICK FASHION! MCQUEEN SOARS! RAIGEKI! THE FROG SPLASH CONNECTS, DRIVING ALL THE AIR FROM FIORA’S LUNGS! MOONGOOSE HOOKS BOTH LEGS!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“You Will Know Our Name” hits once more. After a few moments, Moongoose drags himself up to his feet, and has his arm raised by the official soon thereafter.)
Rebecca Sawyer: HEEEEEEERE IS YOUR WINNER…MOOOOOOOONGOOSE MCQUEEEEEEEN!
Kawajai: Well, I wish I could say I was surprised. Not to say that I won’t vouch for McQueen’s skill or take away from the fact that he earned this victory, but Fiora was giving him unintentional helping hands the whole way through.
Nick Angel: All it took was Kevin Devastation’s PRESENCE to throw Nathan Fiora for a loop enough times for Moongoose McQueen to use to his advantage. Something tells me Fiora’s future opponent isn’t impressed.
(As Moongoose exits the ring and makes his way out the ramp, Nathan is just beginning to get his bearings back, and he’s trying in agony to get up to his feet. A smirking Kevin removes his headset and makes his way toward the ring.)
Kawajai: Uh oh, could Kevin be on his way to make Nathan’s night even worse than what it’s already been?
(Nathan eyes Kevin entering the ring and he shoots up to his feet, albeit holding his ribs as he does so. He stares daggers at the taller man.)
Nathan Fiora (no mic): Tonight doesn’t mean anything. It won’t do anything to change what’s happening to you on Christmas Eve.
Kevin Devastation (no mic): I think I’ve seen all I need to see. Unlike you, I know EXACTLY what I’m walking into — a match where I feel at home against a man who has no idea what he’s f**king with.
Nathan Fiora (no mic): I’ll still be there, ready to kick off your televised funeral. Don’t worry.
Kevin Devastation (no mic): I never do.
(Kevin brushes past Nathan to walk away, and Fiora turns to watch him walk up the ramp with a contempt in his eyes.)
Nick Angel: What an exchange we managed to pick up! With every word spoken, with every well-placed “distraction”, this back-and-forth between these two men gets more contentious. At this rate, House of Horrors might be the only appropriate place to settle this after all!
Kawajai: Christmas Eve is gonna be anything but a Silent Night if these two have their way.
Nick Angel: Switching gears here, at Shock Value Carlos Rosso managed to overcome Moongoose McQueen and Amadeus to claim EAW Interwire Championship. Being the braggart he is, Carlos vowed to defend the Championship anywhere against anyone, taking up independent bookings around the world over the past week and accepting the challenge of Lang the Irascible which you can see on NEO this coming Wednesday evening. Carlos documented his travels this weekend and made this video package that he wants to address to the ENTIRE EAW Roster, especially Jamie O’Hara and Lars Grier.
(“Keep Up” by Akon plays as a montage of Carlos entering the ring to rabid applause in Seoul, thunderous boos in Bangkok and a respectful reception in Merseyside, England as he faces off with three challengers, a young Korean rookie, a battle hardened former Muay Thai champion with whom he has an intense stare-down with and a respected older British wrestler with whom he exchanges a handshake.)
Carlos: I had to go across the world to find people willing to fight me. NOBODY on the main EAW roster answered my challenge. I had to go to independent organizations in Asia and Europe to find competition until Lang stepped up to the plate and accepted my challenge. There are so many people who are hateful of me and see this as a decline of the Interwire Championship, but I beg to differ. This is going to be the most coveted title in EAW soon enough, especially for those titles not considered World Championships. It’s not going to be a FAILURE like the Openweight Championship with its ridiculous rules and overcomplicated schedule. It’s not going to become a joke like the National Elite Championship has become. It’s damn sure going to be more exciting than the Specialists and Hardcore Championships. Nobody ever gave a shit about the New Breed Championship and the Tag Team division is an absolute shell of what it once was under the iron grip of Dynamite Rain.
(The three matches play out in very different fashion in his defenses. The match with the young Korean is an extremely easy affair, ended with a Southern Lariat that forces the challenger to a backflip. The bout with the old English veteran ends with Carlos applying one of his favorite submissions, an inverted figure four, to score a victory after a lengthy, extremely technical bout. As the battle rages on with the Thai challenger, the two men exchanging vicious strikes as the crowd roars in approval, he speaks.)
Carlos: This belt will define 2018. I will face anyone, anywhere, at any time. Sheridan, where you at? Ryan Marx? Chris E-Lite? Keelan? Pizza Boy? Diamond Cage? Someone from the High Rollerz? Cam, you don’t want this belt again? Where are all of you? Where is the real competition? Are you guys going to let a rookie on NEO outshine you and show more heart? I’m here. I’m looking for a fight. I’m looking to make this next year the biggest year of my long career….and then…. Jamie. I’m coming for you. Everything is gearing towards that day when we finally clash once again one on one. That is the likeliest of scenarios and it’s damn sure the one I want. But, in the unlikely scenario some loser lucks up and beats him first, I’ll gladly save them the embarrassment of being the worst drawing champion in EAW history by promptly beating them and relieving them of their Championship troubles.
Because in field, only the strong will survive
And if your heart is steel, you and I will collide
Commentator: Srichaphan and Carlos Rosso standing toe to toe in the center of the ring, exchanging blows, NEITHER MAN GIVING AN INCH! CARLOS LANDS A VICIOUS RIGHT HAND TO THE JAW OF THE CHALLENGER! Shrichapan staggering as Carlos lands a jumping kick to the midsection! AND NOW A LEAPING KNEE SENDS THE CHALLENGER TO THE CANVAS AND THE REFEREE IS STOPPING THE MATCH! HE’S OUT COLD AND CARLOS HAS RETAINED HIS EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP! EMPHATICALLHY!
We gonna rush at each other like two rams fighting in the grasslands
And I’ma be the last man standing!
(Carlos screams as he stands over the body of his defeated challenger before grabbing his belt and holding it up high for all the fans to see. A final clip of him sitting in the locker room being interviewed by the press is played.)
Carlos: This is not going to be some bull**** reign, man. This is going to be real. We are going back to the territory days on their asses, man. I will take this belt anywhere and defend it. EAW NEEDS a championship like this now more than ever. We got FOUR Champions who call themselves World Champion, but everyone wants to stay in their little Echo chamber and hear other people on their rosters tell them how great they are and how great they are for surviving AT BEST one or two good challengers a f***ing year. You can argue most of them don’t even face the best opposition on their own damn show! Nah, I’m not going out like that. People want to retire me, take this title, make themselves famous? I’m not very hard to find. Call the Voltage GM, grow a set, and come to my house, or I’ll come to yours, but it’s not going to be like April Song and Consuela Ava playing grabass in Spain. Nah, it’s gonna be WAR. Lang is gonna know what I’m all about and anyone who wants to try to take this belt from me is gonna know what I’m about to. I’m living at a Championship Level; a level even fellow Champions are jealous of. This belt, the INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP, WILL BE THE STANDARD OF SUCCESS THE WORLD OVER IN 2018! ICHIBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNN!!
Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is a semifinals match in the King of Elite tournament.
(‘Back to School (Mini Maggit)’ by Deftones begins to play as the lights go down, and a green spotlight illuminates the stage. Harvey Yorke appears under it, dressed in his signature straitjacket-esque bomber jacket, and pays little attention to the crowd as he makes his way to the ring.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first, from North Yorkshire, England, weighing in at 182 pounds….HARVEYYYYYY YORKE!
Kawajai: Harvey Yorke has been on fire of late. He beat seven other men to become the new number one contender for the New Breed Championship at Shock Value, and has since come out on top over Jon McAdams to advance to this stage of the King of Elite tournament. In this kind of form, it is hard to bet against him.
(“Signs” by Drake hits the speakers as strobe lightning fills the stage and causes numerous epileptic seizures. Keelan Cetinich runs out and descends the ramp to a loud applause)
Sawyer: And his opponent, from Logan City, Queensland, Australia…Weighing in at 218 pounds…”The Killer”. KEELAN CETINICH!!!
Nick Angel: Maybe, Kawa. But Harvey’s opponent tonight makes it a lot easier. He’s had things a little rough. Losing out in the final two of the Extreme Elimination Chamber. Losing out on his next big chance to Lars Grier. But he gas already edged out one Yorkshireman to get here and you just know that he will pull out everything to prove that he is among the best talents that Voltage have to offer.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Nick: There is the bell for the official start of hostilities, each man wasting no time in rushing together. KILLER-KO!!! WOAH! Harvey Yorke shoves Keelan away to save himself, but Cetinich looks like he is in no mood for games. He wants to tend this one early. The two men now circle with a thick tension forming between them. KEELAN SHOOTS LOW! Harvey sprawls well and the twain tie up close. Cetinich keeps pressing, ultimately forcing Yorke’s back against the ropes. Irish whip, reversed by Yorke. Keelan rebounds back WITH THE SLINGBLADE! KEELAN SPINS RIGHT ROUND INTO THE SEATED SLEEPER AND HE IS LOOKING GET IT LOCKED IN TIGHT AROUND THE THROAT OF THE BATTLING YORKSHIREMAN, HARVEY YORKE!
Kawajai: Keelan Cetinich is doing a really good job here of suffocating the match and just being right on top of everything. He is really setting the pace here and methodically grinding down what is a very tough opponent in Harvey Yorke. Right now Harvey really needs to find a way to shake things up. He is a man who really thrives on the chaos of a frantic brawl but Keelan has been allowed to play his own game thus far. Harvey struggles to little avail as Keelan slowly and steadily tightens the vice. Things a starting to get desperate… HARVEY GOUGES THE EYE! KEELAN RECOILS IN PAIN AND RELEASES THE HOLD BUT I DON’T THINK THE OFFICIAL SAW IT CLEARLY. HE WAS BEHIND THE ACTION AT THE TIME SO IT LOOKS LIKE KEELAN’S CRIES ARE FALLING ON DEAF EARS!
Nick: That’s Harvey for you. I don’t condone it but he really is a master at bending the rules and getting off scot-free. He scrambles to take advantage now… ILLUMINATION II! THE CRUCIFIX ARMBAR!!! BUT IS IT LOCKED IN!?!? NO. KEELAN HAS GOT HIS HANDS CLASPED TOGETHER TIGHT AND HE IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO PREVENT HARVEY FROM LOCKING IN THIS HOLD. Harvey is doing everything he can to pry apart those hands but it just is no good… AND YORKE’S HAD ENOUGH. HE STARTS STOMPING AWAY, PUTTING THE BOOT INTO CETINICH’S FACE! Keelan manages to roll clear but it was close. If he had hesitated Harvey would have had the armbar locked in for sure.
Kawajai: Harvey chases after Keelan, cornering him against the ropes and PUMMELING him with fists. Keelan tries to stumble away, but just finds himself being backed into the corner as Harvey Yorke continues to rattles his skull with heavy punches. Yorke makes a change now to batter Keelan’s midsection with shoulder tackle. Keelan is wheezing. It certainly looks like it hurts. Keelan begins to slump in the corner but Harvey is there to drag him back up… And up… AND UP SOME MORE! HARVEY YORKE SEATS KEELAN CETINICH ALL THE WAY UP ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND CLAMBERS UP TO MEET HIM THERE! YORKE APPLIES THE FULL NELSON! NO WAY! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE ULTRAVIOLENCE FROM THE TOP ROPE!!!
Nick: BUT KEELAN UNDERSTANDS THE DANGER HE IS IN! HE FORCES HIS WAY OUT OF THE FULL NELSON AND CLOCKS HARVEY YORKE WITH A HARD BACK ELBOW ACROSS THE JAW! AND ANOTHER! ANOTHER!!! THAT’S DONE IT! HARVEY DROPS TO THE CANVAS AND KEELAN IS FREE. KEELAN STEADIES HIMSELF AND TURNS AROUND…HE’S READY TO DIVE… PELÉ KICK! THE PELÉ KICK FROM HARVEY YORKE SENDS KEELAN CETINICH TUMBLING DOWN. HE MANAGES TO CATCH THE ROPE AND STOP HIMSELF ON THE APRON BUT KEELAN IS ROCKED! HE IS IN BIG TROUBLE NOW AS HARVEY STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES TO MEET HIM. Yorke pulls him in… THE LUDOVICO TECHNIQUE! HARVEY YORKE HITS THE ROLLING RELEASE SUPLEX ONTO THE APRON! KEELAN’S SPINE SLAMS ONTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING AND HARVEY MIGHT JUST HAVE THIS MATCH IN THE BAG!
Kawajai: He certainly does look to be in a strong position right now. Harvey hops to the outside and drags Keelan up to a vertical base… AND HE DRIVES HIM INTO THE RINGPOST! KEELAN’S HEAD BOUNCES OFF IT WITH A SICKENING SOUND. The crowd are booing vociferously. The official is equally unimpressed and he howls at Harvey to take this match back in the ring. Yorke, of course, obliges. He has already done the damage so he happily rolls the body of Keelan Cetinich under the ropes. Harvey Yorke slides in after to make the cover.
Referee: ONE!… TWO…
Kawajai: HE GETS THE SHOULDER UP! KEELAN IS STILL IN THIS!
Nick: in a manner of speaking, perhaps, Kawa. But didn’t you see how hard he hit his head? This guy is concussed. Keelan’s head’s still spinning as Harvey manhandles him up to a vertical base. Yorke heaves AND LIFTS KEELAN UP – BRAINBUSTAH!!! WHAT?!? KEELAN FLOATS OVER AND LANDS ON HIS FEET. SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK!!! KEELAN STAMPS HIS HEEL INTO HARVEY’S JAW AND YORKE IS STOPPED IN HIS TRACKS! YORKE IS STILL GROGGY AS CETINICH PULLS UP BEHIND HIM… BACKSTABBER! AND KEELAN ROLLS THROUGH TO FOLLOW IT UP WITH THE BRIDGING CROSSFACE! IT’S LOCKED IN! HARVEY YORKE LOOKS LIKE HE IS ABOUT TO BE SNAPPED IN HALF AS KEELAN CETINICH LOOKS TO END THIS MATCH RIGHT HERE WITH THE SUBMISSION! HARVEY HAS BUT ONE HOPE AND THAT IS TO MAKE THE ROPE-BREAK FAST. HE CRAWLS DESPERATELY… REACHING OUT… HE’S GOT IT! THE OFFICIAL MAKES THE COUNT!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!.. FOUR!…
Kawajai: Keelan is forced to make the release and the official moves quickly to separate him from Yorke and explain to Keelan how close he was to getting disqualified there. Keelan nods, all the while not taking his eyes off Harvey who is slowly making it back to his feet. Cetinich charges. KILLER-K-NOOO!!! HARVEY YORKE WITH AN UNBELIEVABLE REVERSAL! HE LEAPED WITH KEELAN AND WHEN THEY BOTH HIT THE CANVAS, YORKE ALREADY HAD THE CRUCIFIX ARMBAR LOCKED IN! KEELAN CETINICH IS IN AGONY! HE HAS NOWHERE TO GO! HARVEY YORKE COULD BE ON HIS WAY TO THE FINALS RIGHT HERE!!!
Nick: WAIT KAWA! KEELAN! KEELAN MANAGES TO ROLL HIMSELF OVER AND OUT OF THE HOLD! CETINICH IS LOOKS FOR AN INVERTED FIGURE FOUR BUT HARVEY KICKS HIM AWAY! KEELAN HITS THE ROPES… POP-UP DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!!! HARVEY HITS IT AND KEELAN IS LEFT CRUMPLED ON THE CANVAS! HARVEY RISES TO THE JEERS OF THE CROWD! BUT IN THE LANGUAGE OF HIS PEOPLE, HE DOESNAE CARE! HE JUST WANNY BE KING! AND HE LOOKS TO MAKE ONE MORE STEP IN THAT DIRECTION AS HE LIFTS KEELAN UP INTO THE FULL NELSON… ULTRAVI-
Kawajai: KILLER-KO!!! KILLER-KO OUT OF NOWHERE AND THE CROWD ARE ON THEIR FEET. KEELAN HOOKS BOTH LEGS!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Signs” by Drake hits the speakers as Keelan slides out of the ring to celebrate with his adoring fans and steal their beer and snagz.)
Sawyer: Ladies and gentlemen, your winner and now advancing to the finals of the Voltage bracket in the King of Elite tournament… KEELAN CETINICH!!!
Nick: HE’S DONE IT! THE WHITE ROSE WEEPS! That’s a second Yorkshireman down as Keelan Cetinich advances ever closer in his quest to become King of Elite.
Kawajai: I’m excited, Nick. Keelan is looking like somebody who could go all the way and make Voltage proud. Saying that, Harvey sure gave him a run for his money, I wouldn’t want to be Finnegan Wakefield right now that is for sure.
(“Morning Glory” by Oasis plays to a nice ovation from the fans as Finnegan Wakefield comes through the curtains with a smile on his face and the EAW New Breed Championship around his waist. He pops his collar before making his way down to the ring…)
Rebecca Sawyer: The following Champion vs. Champion match is scheduled for ONE FALL!! Approaching the ring, from Bury St Edmonds, West Suffolk, England! Weighing in at 181 pounds… HE IS THE WRESTLING ARTIST AND THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION, FIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNEEEEGGGGAAAANNNN WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKEEEFFFIIIIEEEELLDDDDD!!!
Kawajai: Boy oh boy, what a main event we got for you tonight ladies and gentleman! New Breed Champion vs. the EAW World Heavyweight Champion! First time EVER! Finnegan Wakefield is riding a high wave of momentum right now as the champion, but his toughest challenge comes in the form of the undefeated EAW World Heavyweight Champion of this season, Jamie O’Hara!
Nick Angel: I’m left to ponder whether or not Finn’s focus is solely on his task at hand here tonight because he’s got a huge championship defence in just two weeks time at our Christmas Eve Special live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles!
Kawajai: I think he’s got Harvey Yorke and Jon McAdams in the back of his mind.
Nick Angel: Guess we’ll have to wait and find out, Kawa!
(“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin plays to a mixed ovation from the fans as Jamie O’Hara makes his way out onto the stage with the EAW World Heavyweight Championship strapped tightly around his waist. He unstraps it before raising it in the air, keeping his eyes glued on his opponent in the ring Finnegan Wakefield. He makes his way down to the ring…)
Rebecca Sawyer: And his opponent… from Melbourne, Australia!! Weighing in at 190 pounds… HE IS THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, JAAAAAAAAAAAAMIIIEEEEEEEEEE O’HAAAAAAAAAAARRRAAAAAAAA!!!
Kawajai: COUNT THE DAYS, NICK! 240 DAYS NOW AS THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, AND YOU MAY LOVE HIM OR YOU MAY HATE HIM, YOU CANNOT DENY THAT HE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST ELITISTS TO EVER STEP FOOT IN THIS COMPANY!
Nick Angel: There is not a single individual on this Voltage roster that has managed to dethrone this man. Many have tried but all have fallen beneath him. Carlos Rosso, Amadeus, Keelan Cetinich, TLA, Cameron Ella Ava, and even the current number one contender to the belt Lars Grier! Who is going to be able to stop this man?!
Kawajai: Could Finnegan here tonight hand Jamie his first singles loss of the season? Let’s find out!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Nick Angel: And we are underway and this crowd is electric for this main event! Both men meet in the middle with a collar and elbow lock up and it is a strength battle right now! Both these men are under 200 pounds but they wanna see if they can out match each other powerwise here tonight! Both men are trying to push one another to the ropes, but Finnegan circles out of it and wraps Jamie in a headlock! Jamie immediately recognizes the predicament he is in and backs Finnegan up towards the ropes and pushes him forward! Finnegan stops in his tracks, glances over his shoulder before delivering a PELE KICK RIGHT ON THE BUTTON!! Jamie falls back into the ropes and he is clearly reeling from that kick to the head! Finnegan now is the one to send Jamie to the ropes with an irish whip! Jamie comes rebounding back and he attempts a forearm right to the side of the skull of Finn! Finn ducks it, and he runs the ropes this time! Jamie turns and receives a high knee to the chest which forces him back into the ropes! Upon bouncing off the ropes, Jamie comes back with a high knee of his own right to the forehead of Finn! Wow, what action to start!
Kawajai: Finn drops to a knee and Jamie notices his opponent’s positioning! Jamie attempts a step up enzuigiri! NO! Finnegan drops on his stomach to avoid the move! Finnegan rolls forward up to his feet and both men face each one another! Finn attempts a roundhouse kick but Jamie ducks it! Jamie goes for a sweep of the legs but Finnegan leaps over it! Jamie now goes for a simple clothesline but once more Finn avoids it and runs towards the ropes! Jamie is ready for an elbow to the head BUT FINNEGAN BASEBALL SLIDES BETWEEN JAMIE’S LEGS! He kips up! BIG BOOT TO JAMIE WHICH FORCES JAMIE BACK TO THE ROPES ONCE MORE!! JAMIE COMES BACK FOR A BICYCLE KNEE TO THE TEMPLE!!!!!!!! NO!!!! FINNEGAN SOMERSAULTS FORWARD AND JAMIE ONCE AGAIN GOES FOR THE ROPES, BUT THIS TIME HE LEAPS ONTO THE SECOND ROPE! HE MOONSAULTS OFF IT AND FINNEGAN DODGES IT BUT JAMIE LANDS ON HIS FEET! THIS IS MADNESS!! FINNEGAN WITH A BACK ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF JAMIE’S HEAD AND HE RUNS THE ROPES! JAMIE THOUGH SNEAKILY FOLLOWS BEFORE DROPPING DOWN ONTO HIS STOMACH! FINN RUNS BACK BEFORE LEAPING OVER THE DOWNED JAMIE AND RUNS THE ROPES POSSIBLY FOR THE FINAL TIME! JAMIE WITH PERFECT TIMING GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND LEAPFROGS OVER FINN WHO’S RUNNING BACK AND……. NOOOO!!! FINNEGAN CATCHES JAMIE IN MID-AIR WITH A SINGLE LEG TAKEDOWN AND FINNEGAN HAS A HALF BOSTON CRAB LOCKED IN!! JAMIE QUICKLY CRAWLS HIS WAY TOWARDS THE BOTTOM ROPE AND THE REFEREE BREAKS IT UP!
(As Finnegan releases the hold both men roll back up to their feet and stare each other down to a huge round of applause from the crowd.)
Nick Angel: Unbelievable sequence of events by both champions here to begin this one! Jamie nods towards his opponent, perhaps hinting that he is impressed by his performance right now? The two men begin to circle each other before locking up in the middle of the ring once more, but what’s this now? Jamie pulls back and Finnegan is confused… OHHH!! JAMIE O’HARA SLAPS FINNEGAN RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE!! JAMIE WRAPS FINN IN A HEADLOCK BEFORE TAKING HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS, ALL WHILE KEEPING THE HEADLOCK APPLIED!! Just like that, the EAW World Champion has the upper hand! But hold on now, Finnegan has found his way out of it! He wraps his legs around the throat of Jamie to get out it and Jamie releases and both men are back to their feet! OH!! A vicious sounding forearm straight to the face of Jamie, and JAMIE FALLS THROUGH THE SECOND ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE RIGHT AT OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE HERE!! Jamie slaps our table in frustration and turns back to the ring… BUT FINNEGAN IS ON THE APRON! FINNEGAN LEAPS OFF AND DELIVERS A HURRICANRANA!! JAMIE IS IN TROUBLE RIGHT NOW ONCE MORE AS FINNEGAN LIFTS JAMIE UP AND ROLLS HIM BACK INTO THE RING! FINN FOLLOWS, AND WE GOT OUR FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!
Kawajai: Jamie rolls towards one of the corners but Finnegan is keeping that offensive aggression on as he makes his way over and begins to lay lefts and rights into the head! Oh, hold on! OH! JAMIE WITH A KICK TO THE LEFT SHIN OF FINN AND FINN LIMPS INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! Finn turns back and JAMIE WITH A SLING BLADE TO TAKE THE NEW BREED CHAMPION DOWN! Jamie backs up to the corner he was originally in to take a moment to regroup and–
(The sound of a raven is heard.)
Nick Angel: Uh-oh, what’s this?!
Kawajai: That bird sound can only mean one thing, Nick. Lars Grier is nearby!! Jamie has his focus on the entrance stage and it looks like he is waiting for Lars to come out! OH HOLD UP! FINN IS BACK UP AND LEAPS TOWARDS JAMIE!! EXPLODER SUPLEX!! JAMIE IS DOWN, BUT SO IS FINN AS HE IS STILL HOLDING THAT SHIN IN PAIN! Finn however is the first back to his feet and Jamie rises up not long after! Finn with a kick to the gut with his good leg, before deciding to run up to the top turnbuckle… AVALON!!!!!! THE TURNBUCKLE CLIMB ENZUIGIRI CONNECTS AND JAMIE COLLAPSES IN A HEAP! FINN HOOKS THE FAR LEG FOR A COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!
Nick Angel: Shoulder up, but Finn isn’t phased as he rises back to his feet almost immediately and begins to stalk the EAW World Champ! Jamie now uses the ropes to help assist him in getting back to his feet. Finnegan slowly rushes forward with that painful shin, but JAMIE LIFTS FINN OVER THE ROPES AND TO THE OUTSIDE!! Jamie drops to one knee, and once again has a chance to recover. For what it’s worth, Jamie is in–
(The sound of a raven is heard once more and the lights begin to flicker.)
Kawajai: Is this more mind games from Lars Grier right now?
(Suddenly, Jamie looks up and has his eyes focused on something moving around the arena.)
Nick Angel: What is he looking at?
Kawajai: I can’t… I… HEY WHAT ON EARTH?! NICK LOOK ON THE RING POST… IT’S AN ACTUAL RAVEN! Jamie cannot believe what on earth he is seeing right now! Jamie continues to stare at it, but… WAIT A MINUTE! FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD IS BACK ON HIS FEET AND HE GRABS JAMIE FROM AROUND BOTH ANKLES AND JAMIE LANDS ON HIS STOMACH! Finnegan drags Jamie to the outside of the ring, BUT WAIT!! JAMIE WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE JAW OF FINNEGAN! Jamie glances back at that raven perched up on that ring post and shakes his head in anger. He lifts Finnegan up in a torture rack position… oh no!! OH NO!! NICK LOOK OUT!!!
Nick Angel: OHHHHH MY LOOOOOOORD!!! JAMIE O’HARA WITH THE COUNTDOWN TO MIDNIGHT ONTO THE EDGE OF OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE!! THE INVERTED DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!! FINNEGAN IN A WORLD OF HURT RIGHT NOW AS HE FLIPS OFF OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE ONTO THE GROUND! JAMIE SHAKES HIS HEAD THOUGH AS HE SITS FINNEGAN AGAINST OUR TABLE… IT’S THE BEES KNEES!! RAPID KNEE STRIKES RIGHT TO THE HEAD OF FINNEGAN! JAMIE LIFTS FINNEGAN BACK UP AGAIN… OH HE’S GOING FOR THE COUNTDOWN TO MIDNIGHT AGAIN!!! OHHH! RIGHT ONTO THE EDGE OF OUR TABLE! COME ON, FINN MIGHT HAVE SOME BROKEN RIBS RIGHT NOW!
Kawajai: Good lord! Finnegan had such control of Jamie and with a flip of the switch, it’s been ALL Jamie! Jamie rolls the slumped Finnegan into the ring, who has tears forming in his eyes from those two inverted death valley drivers onto the side of our table! He is taking deep breaths, Nick! He is having trouble breathing! Jamie lifts Finnegan up before taking one last look over at that raven. Jamie shakes his head before lifting Finnegan up in the suplex position….. KINGS REGNUM!!!!!!! SUPLEX INTO THE DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER! THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION IS DOWN AND HE IS OUT!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin plays as Jamie O’Hara rises up to his feet. The referee goes to hand him the EAW World Heavyweight Championship but Jamie snatches it from his hand and keeps his eyes on that raven.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Here is your winner… the EAW World Heavyweight Champion… JAAAAAAAAAAAAMIIIEEEEEEEEEE O’HAAAAAAAAAAARRRAAAAAAAA!!!
Nick Angel: And we cannot deny that Finnegan did give Jamie a run for his money early on, but like mentioned earlier – by the flip of a switch, Jamie O’Hara took FULL control and absolutely decimated the EAW New Breed Champion! SOLID effort though from Finnegan Wakefield here tonight in our main event!
Kawajai: But look at Jamie O’Hara. He begins to slowly step towards that raven.
(Jamie inches closer and reaches out to touch it, but the raven flies off the ring post and out of sight.)
Kawajai: Welp, there it goes. Jamie continues to stare at the ringpost, almost as if he was just hallucinating that raven. Jamie takes a couple of steps back before glancing down at Finnegan Wakefield, who is currently being assisted by the referee and a ringside doctor. Jamie leaves the ring and heads up the ramp!
Nick Angel: Well that is all the time we got for ladies and gentlemen thank you for tuning in! This is Kawajai, I am Nick Angel and this has been Sunday Night Voltage! Thanks for joining us and we will see you next week — hold on!
(Jamie O’Hara heads to the top of the ramp before turning and raising his EAW World Heavyweight Championship as Lars Grier shoots into view, finally showing himself by barreling into him with a Ravenbeak spear!)
Kawajai: OH MY GOD! LARS GRIER! LARS GRIER WAS HERE AFTER ALL! THE ACTUAL RAVEN HAS ARRIVED AND HE DELIVERS AN EMPHATIC STATEMENT WITH THE SPEAR! JAMIE HAS BEEN HIT WITH THIS TO CLOSE THE NIGHT FOR THE THIRD TIME THIS SEASON AND THIS ONE MIGHT BE THE MOST POWERFUL, NOT JUST AS A MOVE BUT FOR WHAT IT MAY MEAN FOR JAMIE AND HIS REIGN!
Nick Angel: Lars Grier is holding that World title up! Lars making a quick appearance and making it count! He is not only in Jamie’s head but he made his presence felt there, getting Jamie back for that smack across the face last week! I know I said it already but this time for real we must sign off, thank you for joining us, we’ll see you at the EAW Awards and as far as our next Voltage broadcast, we’ll see you at the Bhristmas Eve special!
(With the title in his possession, Lars Grier throws the World Championship up to tease the audience as we fade to black…)
