EAW Voltage is a professional wrestling television program for Elite Answers Wrestling that currently airs on Sunday nights on FX in the United States, and on the EAW Network worldwide. The show exclusively features EAW employees that are assigned to work and perform for the brand, with the other brands currently being Showdown and Dynasty. It is currently the only television broadcast for the Voltage brand, though it features some Showdown and Dynasty wrestlers on occasion.

History

With EAW continuing to grow as years passed, by late 2010, it became clear that there was a need for a third brand. It did not take long before rumors began swirling backstage about the possibility of one becoming a reality. On New Year's Day 2011, vignettes and commercials began airing throughout EAW shows promoting a new show named "Voltage" as EAW’s official third brand. Two weeks later on January 14th, 2011, the Voltage brand hosted its first show. Voltage became a brand where emerging talent could have a platform to truly breakout and where veterans could reinvent themselves and revamp their careers. Voltage became host to EAW’s third world title, the Answers World Championship.

By June 2012, after one and a half years of operations on Voltage, EAW had declined in roster size, though still the number one company in the industry. At the time, it was within EAW’s best interests to downsize in order to compensate for the reduced number of talent. As a result, Voltage closed its doors and retired the championship that the brand hosted at the time, the EAW World Championship, alongside it. Two years later, EAW had reached a new boom period, growing and expanding to heights never before seen in the industry. The company recovered in roster size to the point where it was once again unable to maintain its talent with just two shows, thus Voltage was revived. On July 5th, 2014, Voltage returned for the first time in over two years and was included in the 2014 EAW Draft. A month later at the Midsummer Massacre FPV, the first EAW Champion in two years was crowned. Since then, Voltage has continued to run successfully for over six consecutive years.

Though it has been youngest EAW brand for most of its tenure, Voltage has had several moments where it has served as the hottest brand in the whole company. Recently, Voltage has slowly built itself up to be considered the most "hardcore" of all three EAW brands by highlighting talents of some of the most blood thirsty members of the EAW locker room in matches such as the infamous "Barbed Wire Massacre." Its fanbase is particularly fond of the Free-Per-View event Bloodsport where each match has a violent, extreme, and hardcore themed stipulation, such as "Fans Bring the Weapons," "Sadistic Maddness," and "Thumbtacks and Glass." Voltage has four brand-exclusive FPV’s: Bloodsport, Wicked Games, Shock Value, and Fighting Spirit. EAW Voltage has had eleven writers during it’s long, successful history with the most current one being Kassidy Heart.

Production

The Voltage set that has been used since the program's inception is the same HD set that is utilized by other EAW weekly shows. For the opening of the show, yellow, silver and gold pyrotechnics are used.
