sVo Against All Odds
Goodfellas Casino Arena
Sunday 29th November 2020
‘Pretty Vegas’ by INXS hits and the opening video package for ‘Against All Odds’ begins to play, featuring classic action from the likes of Psyko Stevo, Bobby Dean, Roscoe Shame, Nathan Paradine & Night. As the package begins to come to an end, the live camera pans around the sold out Goodfellas Casino Arena in the heart of Las Vegas as fireworks begin to shoot up from the top of the entrance ramp.
Fans jump out at the camera trying to get their face on TV as the atmosphere for tonight’s show continues to build. The camera swings around to see the commentators of Johnny All Star & JD James sitting at ringside, before turning to show the giant screen at the top of the entrance ramp as some of the matchups for tonight’s show are shown.
Main Event Players
The fans in the sold out arena rise to their feet and cheer as “London Calling” by the Clash hits the sound system and the sVo Owner Jon Page walks out onto the top of the entrance ramp! Page is dressed in a dark suit and has a championship belt in each hand as he soaks in the cheers from the fans. Page slowly walks down the entrance ramp and climbs into the ring with the title belts, just as he did three shows ago on the return of the sVo. Page waits for the cheers to begin to die down before addressing the crowd as he is handed a microphone by the ring announcer.
Jon Page: “Ladies and gentlemen, many thanks for the warm welcome tonight. Now I know you are all itching to see the action get started so I will make this brief! Tonight in the main event we will see a new Las Vegas Champion crowned as two former Las Vegas Champions battle for this vacant title as JVD takes on Nathan Judge!”
Page holds the belt in the air and the fans boo for the main event match, if not the competitors that will be competing in it.
Jon Page: “However that brings me to the other belt which I have in my position right now, the vacant sVo Championship, a belt that has been held by the likes of Jay Wildman, Roscoe Shame, Psyko Stevo, Alex Ross & Mike Best!”
The fans cheer as Page holds the sVo Championship in the air this time.
Jon Page: “Now we are not far out from the Seasons Beatings PPV, and at that very event we will crown a new sVo Champion!”
More cheers from the fans.
Jon Page: “Now there have been three men unbeaten since the return of the sVo, and if they can remain unbeaten after tonight then they will compete in the main event of the PPV with the chance to become the sVo Champion! Those men of course are ‘The O-Town Outlaw’ Scott Washington….”
There are loud boos from the crowd for the former sVo Tag Team Champion.
Jon Page: “I see, not a lot of love for Washington here tonight in Vegas….. Ok well the second man is one of your own, Las Vegas born CJ Dreamer!”
There are cheers from the crowd for Dreamer, also a former Tag Team Champion who has been winning the crowd over in recent weeks.
Jon Page: “Ok, a bit more love for Dreamer. Finally, as much as it pains me to say it, the third man who has the potential to be in the match tonight, Anthony Moretti!
Nuclear heat for Moretti in the arena, which Page doesn’t look at all surprised at.
Jon Page: “Now speaking of Moretti, I feel I need to address what happened last week with you guys.”
Page leans forward over the top rope and looks straight and to the commentary table where JD James and Johnny All Star are sitting.
Jon Page: “Now I know you guys have some bad blood with Moretti and rightfully so, but I can’t have my commentators getting involved with the fighting talent. You two retired, so unless you want to lace up the boots again and leave the sweet commentary gig behind, I need you to do nothing more than call the action ok?”
All Star and JD James hold the stare of the sVo Owner for a few seconds, as the fans lightly boo the boss. However the message seems to be delivered as Page’s music hits and he makes his way backstage with the two title belts, leaving All Star and James to address the camera and the fans at home.
Growing the Family
The cameras head backstage to the interview area, where Katie Smith is standing by with a microphone in her hand alongside Scott Washington and Amy Page, fresh off of listening to Jon Page’s in ring announcement about the Seasons Beatings main event. Smith looks ready to ask a question to Scott Washington, however before she even has the chance the microphone is snatched from her hand by Amy Page.
Amy Page: “Beat it Katie, no one wants to hear your boring questions tonight. Scott is about to go out there and dominate Dallas Jordan, book himself a place in the main event and then win the sVo Championship at Seasons Beatings!”
Smith slowly bows her head and walks away disappointed.
Amy Page: “Dallas Jordan might as well not show up tonight because the result is a foregone conclusion. The only reason it is worth watching is to see if it ends in pinfall, submission or knockout! No, the real reason for watching tonight’s show is to see one of the newest signings to the sVo roster, and a man that I am personally reasonable for bringing to the country and to the USA. Allow me to introduce the man that is going to make sure that CJ Dreamer doesn’t even make it to Seasons Beatings….”
Page steps to one side as a massive frame of a man wadles into the camera shot. Washington stares down the massive man for a few seconds, seemingly refusing to step out of his way, before finally relenting and letting him past.
Amy Page: “Ladies and the gentlemen, this is Yoshi Ono, one of the top sumo stars in Japan in the last five years and he is now here in the sVo under my guidance. Tonight he makes his first appearance in the USA against CJ Dreamer, and he is going to ensure that title belt ends up around the waist of Scott Washington!”
Ono stares into the camera as Amy Page laughs from behind him, the scene slowly fading out.
Scott Washington vs. Dallas Jordan
“My heart beat for the West Coast,
We grow the best on the West Coast,
We lowride on the West Coast,
So I’mma die throwing up the West Coast”
The fans are on their feet as ‘California Vacation’ by The Game hits the sound system and the lights in the arena dim. Golden sparks rain down from the top of the giant screen onto the entrance ramp as Scott Washington step through them and holds his arms in the air. The huge ‘O-Town Outlaw’ taunts to the crowd who boo loudly as he walks down the entrance ramp with his eyes focused on the ring. Scott Washington jumps up onto the ring apron before climbing into the ring and warming up in the corner of the ring for his upcoming battle.
“Living in America, eye to eye, station to station
Living in America, hand to hand across the nation
Living in America, got to have a celebration!
I live in America
I live in America!”
The upbeat “Living In America” by James Brown hits the sound system and the fans in the arena cheer as the arena is basked in a red, white and blue glow. After a few seconds the energetic Dallas Jordan steps out onto the top of the entrance ramp and throws up a salute to the crowd. ‘The Patriot’ quickly makes his way down the entrance ramp whilst slapping hands with fans at ringside, before climbing into the ring. Jordan stares out to the crowd for a few seconds before throwing up another salute to the crowd. Jordan retreats into his corner of the ring as the music begins to fade out.
The referee calls for the bell to be rung and the opening match of the night is quickly underway as Jordan and Washington circle around each other in the middle of the ring. The fans are clearly behind Jordan despite his 0-2 record so far in the sVo, but he makes a good start to the match as he lands some big right hands to the side of his opponents head. Washington is rocked by the right hands, but quickly fires back with a knee to the midsection of his opponent before taking him down with a double leg takedown! With Jordan on the mat, the fans begin to boo loudly as Scott Washington lays into him with some stiff ground and pound mounted punches, before Jordan is able to squirm to the ropes and the referee calls for a break.
Jordan staggers back up to his feet, but Washington is right back on his opponent with some clubbing blows to the back of his opponent, before grabbing him in a waist lock. Washington looks for a German suplex on his opponent, but Jordan holds onto the ring ropes to try and block the move from happening! Washington hammers Jordan on the back with some more clubbing blows, before pulling Jordan away from the ropes and finally landing the German suplex! With Jordan down on the mat, Scott Washington rises up to his feet and soaks in the loud boos from the Las Vegas crowd!
Washington stalks Jordan as he staggers up to his feet, before taking him down with a snapmare. With Jordan on the mat, Washington bounces into the ring ropes and lands a knee to the back of his opponents head before making the cover!
Everyone in the arena thought it was all over right there but somehow Jordan manages to get a shoulder up off of the mat before the three! Scott Washington looks shocked as he stares at the referee for a few seconds, before pulling Jordan up to his feet. Scott Washington lands a stiff spinning heel kick on Jordan which sends him crashing back into the corner of the ring. With Jordan in the corner, Scott Washington closes in on his opponent and begins to hammer him with some big right hands and kicks! Dallas Jordan looks desperate in the corner, but as the fans try to get behind him, he suddenly lunges forward and lifts Washington up, before dropping him with a snake eyes on the turnbuckle!
The fans rise to their feet to continue their support of Dallas Jordan, but with both men down on the mat it looks like a race as to who will get to their feet first. Dallas Jordan manages to stumble up, and he lands some big right hands of his own on Scott Washington, before hitting a headbutt on the ‘O-Town Outlaw’! Washington staggers backwards, and Dallas Jordan takes the chance to bounce into the ring ropes before landing a spear on Washington! The fans are on their feet to see an upset as Jordan dives down to make the cover.
It looked like it was all over right there, but Washington kicks out at the very last second! Dallas Jordan can’t believe it as he staggers up to his feet and tries to build off of the momentum from the crowd! Jordan kicks away tiredly at Washington as he gets up to his feet, before positioning him for a suplex in the middle of the ring. Jordan tries to lift Washington into the air for the suplex, but Washington manages to block. Jordan tries the move again, but once against Washington blocks, before spinning and locking Jordan into the ‘Conviction’ submission hold!!
The fans boo loudly as Washington clenches in the hold as tight as possible on his opponent as Jordan gasps for air! Jordan struggles for a few seconds, before finally tapping out to the pain! The referee calls for the bell quickly before having to try and pull Scott Washington off of his opponent! Washington finally releases the hold and rises up to his feet. The referee raises the aim of Washington in the air for yet another victory, with Washington now 3-0 since the sVo’s return and in a prime spot for a sVo Championship shot!
Winner via submission: Scott Washington
The Problem Solver Pt1
After the impressive victory for Scott Washington over Dallas Jordan, the cameras head backstage where Anthony Moretti is standing in his locker room with a smirk on his face preparing to get interviewed by Katie Smith. Moretti looks pleased because standing beside him is a massive mountain of a man.
Katie Smith: “Anthony, I came here to ask you tonight about the chance you have to fight for the sVo Championship at Seasons Beatings if you win tonight, but I think everyone wants to know just who you had standing with you tonight?”
Moretti smirks as Katie Smith looks up and down at the man that towers above her.
Anthony Moretti: “You want me to introduce you Katie? Well this here is my problem solver! This is an old childhood friend, a man that I know has my back 100%. This is Joe Barone and he is here tonight in the sVo to have my back, to make sure there are no more sneak attacks, no more commentators getting all up in my business. Tonight everything changes Katie, and at Seasons Beatings I will be the new sVo Champion!”
Moretti nods to the big man Barone, who follows him out of the locker room leaving Katie Smith on her own clutching the mic.
Next Champion? Pt1
The cameras move to the backstage area, where the door to the parking lot opens and in walks a confident-looking Nathan Judge! Judge has a sports bag slung over his shoulder and is dressed in a tracksuit as he walks down the corridor with a purpose in his step.
With Nathan Judge being the last man to hold the sVo Las Vegas Championship belt back in 2013 when the sVo ran it’s last show, can he win the belt back tonight in the main event against James Von Drake?
Judge continues to walk towards the camera as the scene cuts back to ringside.
CJ Dreamer vs. Yoshi Ono
The lights in the arena dim and the mood changes as ‘GTA’ by Meek Mill hits the sound system. As the base reverberates around the arena, the massive figure of Yoshi Ono slowly steps out onto the top of the entrance ramp and looks out at the arena. The crowd loudly boo the sight of Ono, but the Japanese star ignores the crowd and performs a sumo ritual dance at the top of the entrance ramp. Ono then slowly walks down to the ring at his own pace, before slowly climbing into the ring and staring out at the crowd from the corner of the ring with a snarl on his face as the lights slowly come back up.
“It’s just one of those days
When ya don’t wanna wake up
Everything is fucked
You don’t really know why
But you wanna justify
Rippin’ someone’s head off
No human contact
And if you interact
Your life is on contract
Your best bet is to stay away, motherfucker
It’s just one of those days.”
‘Break Stuff’ by the Limp Bizkit blasts over the sound system as CJ Dreamer slowly walks out onto the top of the entrance ramp and stares out at the fans packed into the Goodfellas Casino Arena. Dreamer smirks at his hometown fans who are baying for his blood as he stops for a few seconds to signal to the fans, before briskly walking down the entrance ramp and rolling into the ring. Dreamer quickly rolls to his feet and skips in a circle around the ring whilst shadow boxing. Dreamer slowly returns to his corner of the ring as the music fades out and is replaced with the sound of just the boos from the fans.
Dreamer stares across the ring at his massive opponent wondering what strategy to use to get the match won, as Ono stares back at Dreamer with dead eyes. The referee calls for the bell to be rung, and Ono quickly runs forward and looks for a big splash in the corner of the ring on Dreamer, but the former Tag Team Champion dives away before the massive 400pounder can squash him in the corner. Ono staggers out holding his chest, and Dreamer lays into the big man with some right hands.
Ono absorbs the big punches which are not enough to knock him off of his feet, and Dreamer tries to get some extra momentum by bouncing off of the ring ropes and landing a clothesline on his opponent! However the running clothesline is still not enough to knock Ono down! Dreamer looks at his opponent in disbelief, before looking to repeat the move, however this time Ono cuts Dreamer off with a big head butt to his opponent!
With Dreamer down on the mat, Ono bounces slowly off of the ring ropes before dropping a massive leg across the chest of his opponent and looking for the cover.
No! Somehow Dreamer is able to push the massive weight of Ono’s leg off of him and get his shoulder up off of the mat. Dreamer staggers up to his feet, but a massive savate kick from Ono sends him into the ropes. Dreamer stumbles back out of the ropes into the arms of his opponent, who drills him with a big side belly to belly suplex! With all of Yoshi Ono’s weight landing on Dreamer, the newcomer once again makes the cover!
Somehow Dreamer again kicks out! Ono rises up to his feet and looks at the referee in disgust at the two count. The crowd boo loudly for the sight of Ono lining up another splash on Dreamer as he pulls himself up to his feet in the corner of the ring. Ono runs at Dreamer once again looking for a big splash, but somehow Dreamer counters once again as he nails a drop toe hold on his opponent with sends Ono crashing face first into the bottom turnbuckle!
Ono might be out cold as Dreamer struggles up pull his dead weight away from the ring ropes and make the cover!
It’s all over and thanks to a stroke of quick thinking, it is CJ Dreamer who just about escapes with the victory! Dreamer quickly bails out of the ring before the massive Ono can come to and makes his way slowly back up the entrance ramp as the referee checks on his opponent.
Winner via pinfall: CJ Dreamer
Next Champion? Pt2
After the impressive victory for CJ Dreamer over the newcomer Yoshi Ono, the cameras cut to the backstage area where a limo pulls up in the parking lot. After a few seconds, the limo drive rushes around and opens the door to the limo, allowing James Von Drake and his wife to step out! JVD seems to be preoccupied on his mobile phone as he begins to walk into the arena, Lucy just behind him.
JVD: “Don’t worry about it, the plan is all coming together! Tonight I beat Judge in the main event to win the Las Vegas Championship and get things started!”
Lucy Von Drake notices the camera tracking herself and her husband in the arena, and quickly taps JVD on the shoulder to point it out.
JVD: “Sorry I got to go, I’m in the arena now and the cameras are all over the place! Catch up with you after the main event!”
Von Drake scowls at the camera as he hangs the phone up, before stepping into his locker room with his wife. Lucy Von Drake smiles sarcastically at the camera before slamming it shut so the camera can’t enter.
Just who was Von Drake on the phone to and can he get the job done in his title match in the main event tonight?
Anthony Moretti vs. The Teacher
‘Woke Up This Morning’ by A3 hits the sound system and the fans boo as the gold lights flash around the arena. After a few seconds, Anthony Moretti steps onto the entrance ramp with his hands in the air. Moretti slowly makes his way down the ramp towards the ring, ignoring the boos of the fans. Anthony Moretti cockily steps up onto the ring apron, before climbing through the ropes and into the ring. Acting like the superstar he thinks he is, Anthony Moretti raises both hands in the air, however receives nothing but boos from the fans.
‘Stand Up’ – Trapt begins to play over the sound system and the lights in the arena cut out. A spotlight searches around the crowd until it picks out The Teacher slowly making his way through the fans towards the ring. The Teacher leaps over the barrier and slides into the ring, ready to bring another wrong-doer to justice.
The referee calls for the bell to be rung and the action is underway as Moretti and the Teacher circle around each other in the middle of the ring. Moretti lands the first blow with a big right hand, but the Teacher fires back with some right hands of his own before grabbing his opponent by the arm and sending him hard into the ring ropes. Moretti bounces back into the middle of the ring, but as the Teacher looks for a back body drop, Moretti counters with a swinging neckbreaker. The fans boo loudly as Moretti rises up to his feet looking pleased with himself, as the Teacher rolls to the corner holding his neck in pain.
Moretti makes his way to the corner of the ring and stomps away on his opponent, before finally bringing the Teacher up to a standing position in the corner. ‘Woooos’ ring out around the arena as Anthony Moretti lights up the chest of the Teacher with some stiff knife edge chops in the corner! The fans boo Moretti, but the knife edge chops seem to wake the Teacher back up, as he grabs Moretti and throws him into the corner before landing some knife edge chops of his own!
Moretti fights out of the corner with some right hands, but the Teacher lands a knee to the midsection of Moretti before sending him down to the mat with an impressive over the shoulder arm drag. Moretti staggers back up, but the Teacher is there with a reverse sleeper hold slam before making the cover on his opponent.
No! Moretti comfortably kicks out before the three to maintain his unbeaten record since the sVo’s return.
The Teacher doesn’t slow down on the offence as he locks in a underhook leg trap neck submission on Moretti and tries to wear down his opponent and look for the submission victory. The fans cheer on the Teacher and seem excited about the prospect of Moretti tapping out, however as the referee asks him if he wants to quit he quickly shakes his finger! Moretti tries to drag himself towards the bottom rope for a rope break, but the Teacher uses all of his strength to keep the move locked in! Eventually, Moretti manages to reach out and lay a hand on the bottom rope, causing groans of disappointment from the crowd.
The Teacher releases the hold and rises up to his feet, looking for the big knockout to get himself his first victory since the sVo return. Moretti tries to get to his feet, but the Teacher drops him with a DDT in the ring, before making his way to the corner and beginning to climb the turnbuckle! The fans rise to their feet waiting to see the high flying move, but as the masked Teacher flies from the top rope, Moretti gets his knees up and drives them into his opponent’s midsection!
The fans boo loudly as Moretti pulls himself up to his feet using the ring ropes with a smirk on his face. The Teacher looks dazed as he rises up to his feet, but Moretti puts him back on the mat with a spinning DDT. With the Teacher down, Moretti signals for his finish as he stalks his masked opponent. The Teacher slowly staggers up, but he walks straight into a ‘Hitman’ from Moretti, who then rolls over to make the cover.
It’s all over, and Moretti picks up another victory to move to 3-0 since the sVo’s return! Moretti looks in pain as he pulls himself up to his feet and shouts at the referee to raise his arm in the air. The referee reluctantly does his job and raises the arm of Moretti in the air in victory, causing another loud volly of boos from the Las Vegas crowd.
Winner via pinfall: Anthony Moretti
The Problem Solver Pt 2
With The Teacher down in the ring, a large smile slowly spreads across the face of Anthony Moretti as he pushes the referee away and stalks The Teacher once again on the mat. The Teacher tries to rise up to his feet, but Moretti quickly takes him down to the mat with a ‘Hitman’, before rolling to the outside of the ring.
Moretti smirks as he walks slowly over to the announcers table and then suddenly jumps forward and pushes JD James out of his seat with a pie face of the commentator! JD James falls into Johnny All Star, and Moretti quickly grabs hold of James’s chair!
The crowd boo loudly as Moretti begins to make his way towards the ring with the steel chair, but before he can make it Johnny All Star is around the otherside of the commentators table, grabbing the chair away from the grasp of Moretti!
The crowd pop for All Star as he threatens to hit Moretti with the chair, causing Moretti to quickly back away from his half brother. However Moretti backs right up into JD James who cuts off Moretti! The crowd pops as it looks like All Star and JD James have Moretti cornered, and JD James shouts at All Star to take Moretti’s head off with the chair! However before All Star can do anything, Moretti has some back up as the massive Joe Barone runs down to ringside to stand alongside Moretti! Moretti smirks as with the numbers even, All Star raises the chair up but Barone punches it straight out of his hand!
It looks like All Star and James and Moretti and Barone are about to come to blows, until Jon Page rushes out onto the top of the entrance ramp and waves to the back for security! The fans boo as security rushes out from the backstage area to get between the two sets of men and stop them from coming to blows!
With Moretti seemingly wanting to antagonise JD James and Johnny All Star at every turn, can they all exist within the sVo?
With Us or Against Us
The camera again heads to the backstage area, this time the medical room where the doctor is checking over CJ Dreamer after his hard fought match over newcomer Yoshi Ono. Dreamer looks in pain as he holds an ice pack to his neck whilst the referee checks over his free arm.
However despite being in pain, Dreamer jumps up to his feet and into a fighting position as the door opens and into the medical room steps Amy Page, quickly followed by Scott Washington and Yoshi Ono! Sensing danger, the doctor quickly backs off as Dreamer picks up the steel chair he was sitting on and prepares to use it as a weapon.
Amy Page: “CJ! Relax, relax!”
Despite the words of Amy Page, Dreamer looks anything but relaxed as he holds the chair ready to swing.
Amy Page: “We are not here for trouble CJ, far from it! We were all impressed with your performance out there tonight!”
Yoshi Ono scowls at Dreamer as Washington remains emotionless, staring down his former tag team partner.
Amy Page: “Now you have booked your place in the Seasons Beatings main event, Scott booked his place and Anthony Moretti booked his place as well!”
Dreamer still doesn’t seem to trust anyone else in the room as he stands silently, still holding the chair ready to defend himself at a moment’s notice.
Amy Page: “So it looks like it’s a triple threat match… but what if it wasn’t a triple threat match? Now I know you and Scott haven’t spoken much recently, but you guys are former sVo Tag Team Champions! Wouldn’t it make things more interesting if Moretti got eliminated from that match early and we made sure that the best man truly was able to win instead of that weaselly bastard?”
Dreamer stares across from Page to Washington to Ono, all three surrounding him in a semicircle.
Amy Page: “Don’t worry, we are not looking for an answer right now. Have a think, chew things over…. We know you will come to the right decision!”
Page nods at Dreamer and gives him a little wink, before motioning to Ono and Washington. Amy Page turns on her heels and exits the medical room, Ono and Washington snarling at Dreamer before reluctantly following her out.
Las Vegas Championship Match
JVD vs. Nathan Judge
“All my life I’ve been searching for something
Something never comes never leads to nothing
Nothing satisfies but I’m getting close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope”
There are boos in the arena as ‘JVD’ flashes up on the giant screen and the arena is basked in a pink glow. “All My Life” by Foo Fighters blares out as James Von Drake walks out, with his wife Lucy Von Drake as always by his side. JVD signals to the crowd before walking down to the ring and sliding in. JVD holds his arms in the air in the middle of the ring as Lucy Von Drake stands outside the ring clapping on her husband.
“Howling winds keep screaming round
And the rain comes pouring down
Doors are locked and bolted now
As the thing crawls into town.”
‘Night Crawler’ by Judas Priest hits the sound system and there are boos in the arena as Nathan Judge slowly emerges from the backstage area onto the top of the entrance ramp. Nathan Judge doesn’t look too happy with the reception he is receiving from the Vegas crowd as he stares out at the sea of people before slowly making his way down the entrance ramp towards the ring.
Judge slowly climbs into the ring between the ropes before walking around the perimeter and staring out at the crowd. The crowd continue to boo Nathan Judge as he stands tall in the ring looking ready for the match to begin.
With both men in opposite corners and Lucy Von Drake watching from ringside, the referee walks into the middle of the ring and holds the sVo Las Vegas Championship in the air to signal that it will be on the line in tonight’s main event match! Both men look up at the vacant glistening title that they have both previously held, knowing they are only a three count away from getting their hands on it again!
The referee hands the belt to the outside of the ring before calling for the bell, and the main event is underway!
JVD and Judge both start the match cautiously, clearly not wanting to make an early mistake that will cost them their chance at taking home the Las Vegas Championship and the prize money that goes along with it. Both men tie up in the middle of the ring in a test of strength, with Judge getting the upper hand by pushing his opponent to the corner of the ring. The referee calls for a rope break, and despite Judge cleanly breaking the hold, JVD rakes the eyes of his opponent! The fans boo loudly, and the referee admonishes JVD, however he doesn’t seem to care as he shrugs his shoulder and follows up with some right hands on his opponent. Judge staggers backwards, allowing JVD to grab him by the arm and throw him into the ring ropes. Judge bounces back into the middle of the ring and JVD takes him down with a sidewalk slam in the middle of the ring.
JVD poses in the middle of the ring which draws some boos from the crowd, but also allows Judge the time to get to his feet. JVD follows up with some more right hands to the face of his opponent, before sending him back down to the mat with a side Russian leg sweep. With Judge on the mat, JVD goes for the submission victory by flipping his opponent over and locking in a Boston crab in the middle of the ring! The fans boo loudly as Judge shouts out in pain whilst the referee asks him if he wants to quit! Judge shakes his head as he reaches out with both arms for the bottom rope, and tries to edge his way to the ring ropes! JVD shouts at his opponent to tap out, but Judge finally manages to reach the ring ropes and grab the bottom rope, causing the referee to call for the rope break! JVD keeps the hold locked on for the full five count, before releasing and immediately flipping Judge over into a pinfall attempt!
Judge somehow manages to kick out, despite JVD’s veteran move of trying to pin him straight after the effort used to get out of the submission hold!
Lucy Von Drake screams at the referee from the outside of the ring as JVD rises up to his feet and shakes his head in annoyance. Nathan Judge slowly manages to pull himself up to a standing position, but JVD is quickly back on his opponent with some right hands to back him into the corner of the ring. JVD lands some stiff body shots, but Judge backs him up with a headbutt! The fans give a mixed reaction to the fight back from Judge who lands a second headbutt on his opponent, before lifting up his opponent and landing a spinebuster in the middle of the ring!
JVD staggers up to his feet holding his back in pain from the big power move from his opponent, but Judge ducks under the attempted punch from JVD before slamming him to the mat again, this time with a double underhook slam! With JVD down on the mat, Judge drops down and makes the cover!
It looked like it was all over right there, but JVD manages to kick out just in time, much to the relief of Lucy Von Drake at ringside who was half way into the ring herself to try and break up the cover! Nathan Judge looks like the last two moves took all of his strength as he rises up to his feet and tries to compose himself to go for the kill on his opponent! JVD slowly staggers up, and Judge pounces forward to land a kick to the midsection of his opponent before landing a snap powerbomb in the middle of the ring!
With JVD down and hurting, Nathan Judge makes the decision not to make the cover and instead signals for his finishing move! The fans rise to their feet to potentially see the crowning of a new Las Vegas Champion as Nathan Judge pulls JVD up to a standing position! Nathan Judge hooks up JVD for the ‘Judgement Day’, but as he does Lucy Von Drake leaps up onto the ring apron!
The referee rushes over to try and stop Lucy Von Drake from getting into the ring, but with his back turned, JVD lands a low blow on his opponent! Nathan Judge sinks down to his knees in pain, and JVD quickly steps forward and with his last ounce of strength lands a ‘Dollar Drop’ on his opponent!
The fans boo loudly as JVD flops an arm over his opponent, and Lucy Von Drake jumps off of the ring apron just in time for the referee to turn around and make the cover!
It’s all over and we have a new sVo Las Vegas Champion in James Von Drake, who last held the belt back in December 2010!
JVD tries to struggle up to his feet after the high impact match, as Lucy Von Drake grabs the Las Vegas Championship from the hands of the referee and pushes him away! Lucy Von Drake ignores the boos from the crowd as she puts the belt around the waist of her husband, before lifting the new champion’s arm in the air in victory!
Winner via pinfall & new Las Vegas Champion: James Von Drake
The Problem Solver Pt3
As the celebrations continue in the ring for the Von Drakes, the camera cuts to the backstage area where Anthony Moretti and his new associate Joe Barone are watching the action on a TV monitor in the corner.
Anthony Moretti: “With you in my corner Joe, that will be me at Seasons Beatings holding up the sVo Championship! Don’t worry, when I win that belt you are going to see your money shoot up!”
Barone looks pleased with that statement from his old friend.
Joe Barone: “What about those two commentator dudes, we need to deal with them before Seasons Beatings?”
Anthony Moretti: “Those two has beens? No forget about it! It’s fun fucking with them each week, but there is only one man that can stand in my way from getting that belt. The same man that I know has been sending those masked opponents after me, the same man that’s sister is involved in the main event, the same man that stole this company from my father and your godfather…. Jon Page! Next week we will deal with him!”
The scene fades out as Moretti stares at the celebration on the screen, whilst Barone slowly nods his head in agreement.
