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 new commentator team of Julian Fiasco & Jeremiah Sloan 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.

Dallas Jordan vs. The Teacher
“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.
‘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.
With both men in the ring, the referee calls for the bell to be rung and the first sVo match of 2021 to get started! Jordan and Teacher, both desperate to start the year off with a win, circle around each other, before Jordan lays into the Teacher with some big right hands. Jordan backs the Teacher into the corner of the ring, before the Teacher manages to halt the punches with a knee to the midsection. The Teacher fights back with some right hands of his own, before grabbing his opponent by the arm and sending him into the ring ropes. Jordan bounces back into the middle of the ring where the Teacher takes him down with a drop toe hold, before bouncing into the ropes himself and landing a diving dropkick to the face of his opponent!
Dallas Jordan struggles up to his feet holding his face in pain, but the Teacher is straight back on him with a double arm drag to take him down to the mat. The Teacher follows up by bouncing into the ring ropes and landing a running elbow drop to his opponent. Dallas Jordan struggles up to a standing position, and the Teacher continues the offense with some more punches to the back of his opponent. With Dallas Jordan in trouble, the Teacher hooks his opponent in a front face lock before lifting him into the air and dropping him on his head with a brainbuster! The fans cheer for the big move, and the Teacher looks for the win as he leaps on his opponent to make the cover.
Dallas Jordan kicks out before the three and the match continues!
The Teacher pulls Dallas Jordan up to his feet and lands some stiff chops across the chest of his opponent, backing him into the corner of the ring at the same time. The fans are behind the masked Teacher as he lays into Jordan with the chops in the corner. Jordan tries to fight back with some desperate right hands, however, the Teacher pulls Jordan away from the ring ropes before dropping him on his head with a twisting neck breaker! With Jordan down and hurting again, the Teacher hooks the leg and looks for the cover.
No! Once again Jordan shows some grit and kicks out before the three! The Teacher wastes no time in grabbing his opponent and dragging him to his feet, before positioning him in the corner of the ring. The Teacher takes a few steps back before running and looking for a splash in the corner, but Jordan has the move scouted and dives out of the way causing the Teacher to hit the turnbuckle hard!
The Teacher stumbles out of the corner, and Jordan follows up with a chopblock to take his opponent down to the mat. With the masked man on the mat, Jordan works over the leg to try and slow his opponent down and take control of the match. The Teacher fights his way to a standing position, but Jordan grabs him with a leg screw takedown, before rolling to his feet, bouncing into the ring ropes for extra momentum, and following up with a knee drop on the leg of his opponent!
The Teacher stumbles up to his feet in pain, but Dallas Jordan lands a fisherman’s suplex into the cover!
This time it is The Teacher’s time to kick out before the three count and save the match! Dallas Jordan curses at the referee for not counting the three, before landing some big stomps on the body of his opponent. Dallas Jordan signals to the crowd who give him a mixed reaction before pulling the Teacher to his feet! Dallas Jordan whips his opponent into the ring ropes before bouncing off of the opposite side himself and looking for a running lariat on his opponent!

The referee raises the arm of the victor in the air as Dallas Jordan lays on the mat, once again ending the match staring up at the lights.
Winner via pinfall: The Teacher
A new Horizon
After the impressive victory for the Teacher over the young Dallas Jordan, the cameras head backstage where a long limo pulls up in the parking lot of the Goodfellas Casino Arena, the waiting cameras quickly focusing in on the door and the blacked out windows for a hint of who is inside!
The driver of the limo quickly jumps out and rushes around to open the passenger door, and after a few seconds JD James steps out! The crowd cheer for the sight of JD James, however as the former commentator straightens his suit, out of the limo behind him steps Johnny All Star, Gunner Lang, Darwin Jones & Hugo Ryzing!
The crowd in the arena go wild for the sight of the five stars, however one man who doesnt seem quite a thrilled seems to be standing waiting for them at the arena door, the suited sVo Owner Jon Page.
Jon Page: “Well, was wondering if you guys were going to show up here tonight….”
Page makes a show of checking the expensive looking gold watch on his wrist, not even looking at the time displayed. The five new arrivals at the arena all look around at each other, before JD James steps forward to speak for them.
JD James: “First sVo show of the year and another chance to make Anthony Moretti’s life miserable, we wouldn’t miss it for anything.”
Jon Page: “And you suppose you think I am going to let you all into my show after you two walked out just before the main event of my biggest show of the year and left me with no commentary team?”
The five again all look around at each other, with Ryzing and Jones looking ready to step forward and move Page out of the way if neeed, only for JD James and Gunner Lang to calm them down.
Johnny All Star: “Look Page, we gave you the chance to do something about Moretti, but you showed you weren’t able to. Someone had to step up and deal with that problem, and we all owe JD a lot in our lives, we were not going to let Moretti and his goons attack him like that.”
Page nods his head, looking like he took slight offence at the suggestion he couldn’t deal with Moretti on his own.
Jon Page: “Well I cant say I didn’t enjoy you all beating the crap out of Moretti after the main event…. But you two are on my shit list after walking out on me like that, so don’t expect any favours from me. You might all have history here, but as far as I am concerned you all start again at the bottom and work your way up. Any problems with that?”
The five once again look around at each other, before leaving it to JD James to speak for the group.
JD James: “Jon, this is a new Horizon for the sVo, I promise you that. All my boys are more than capable of working their way up and beating any one on the roster right now. If you want them to work their way up then so be it, although I thought that after Moretti attacked you before the PPV I would have thought that you would want that title off of him as soon as possible?”
Page nods and slowly smiles.
Jon Page: “Oh trust me I do, but there is already someone here in the arena that has a pretty good claim to that title. If we are all agreed then let me be the first to welcome you gentlemen back to the sVo officially….”
Page steps aside and pushes the arena door open, as once former but now again current sVo stars JD James, Johnny All Star, Gunner Lang, Darwin Jones & Hugo Ryzing all step past him into the arena, all taking a few steps to stop and eyeball the boss. It looks like the new horizon for the sVo is officially underway!
Orlando Fox 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.
“Cuz tha boyz in tha hood are always hard
Ya come talkin’ that trash we’ll pull ya cord
Knowin’ nuthin’ in life but tah be legit
Don’t quote me boy ‘cuz I ain’t said shit”
Boyz-N-Tha-Hood by Eazy E hits the sound system and the fans boo as Orlando Fox slowly makes his way down the entrance ramp. Fox, the former Hardcore Champion raises his arm in the air as he walks down towards the ring whilst staring out members of the audience at ringside. Fox soon rolls into the ring under the bottom rope and steps onto the bottom rope before performing his signature taunt to the crowd, which brings out even more boos for Fox!
The referee calls for the bell to be rung and the match is officially underway, with Yoshi Ono trying to get some revenge for his stablemate Scott Washington after Fox cost Washington his sVo Championship shot at the Seasons Beatings PPV at the end of 2020! Fox looks like he wants to stay away from the massive bulk of Yoshi Ono, who waddles over to his opponent menacingly and throws some sharp jabs. Fox weaves the bobs to avoid the right hand of Ono before bouncing off of the ring ropes and hitting a clothesline on the big man! However the clothesline doesn’t even knock Ono off of his feet! Fox tries to repeat the move, but once again Ono stays standing!
The fans are behind Orlando Fox as he looks for another big clothesline, however Ono ducks out of the way of the third one, before turning and dropping Fox with a big head butt to send him down to the mat with authority! Orlando Fox holds his face in pain as he stumbles back up to a standing position, however, Yoshi Ono is straight onto his opponent with a big thrust kick. Fox tries to pull himself back up to his feet in the corner of the ring, but Ono runs and splashes his opponent, using his size to his advantage! Ono wastes no time in hooking the leg of Fox and looking for the cover, showing that he doesn’t get paid by the hour!
No! Fox doesn’t have the strength to kick out, but somehow manages to put his foot on the bottom rope and cause the referee to call for a rope break and stop the count! Ono rises up to his feet and tries to get in the face of the referee, but as he does Fox takes the opportunity to roll out of the ring and try and put some distance between himself and the big man!
Ono continues to argue with the referee, and doesn’t notice as Orlando Fox takes the time to walk over to the commentator’s table and grab a steel chair from Natasha Ortiz the ring announcer! Fox roll back into the ring with the steel chair in hand behind the back of his opponent, before landing a blatant chair shot on Ono right in front of the referee!
The referee immediately calls for the bell to be rung, but the chair shot doesn’t knock Ono off of his feet! The fans cheer Fox on as he lands another chair shot to Ono, this time to the face, however once again the big man stays on his feet! Fox lands a third chair shot, but once again Ono stays standing, despite being wobbly on his feet!
Fox lands one last chair shot that sends Ono tumbling over the top rope, but once again Ono lands on his feet! The fans cheer on Orlando Fox, who looks shocked at what little impact the chair shots seem to have had on Yoshi Ono, but still holds the ring as the winner by DQ Yoshi Ono slowly backs up the entrance ramp with an angry look on his face!
Winner via DQ: Yoshi Ono
After the big DQ win for the big man Yoshi Ono, the cameras head backstage to the interview area where Katie Smith is stand by, microphone in hand with one of the newer members of the sVo roster, Jupiter James! The two red heads look in an excitable mood as the camera man signals to them that they are live!
Katie Smith: “Jupiter, at Seasons Beatings you shocked the world by making a surprise debut and beating Lucy Von Drake in your very first match. Surely it was a dream come true?”
James giggles at the question, excitedly nodding her head.
Jupiter James: “I grew up watching the sVo with the likes of Mike Best & Psyko Stevo, it was always my dream to compete here and in 2013 I thought that dream had died forever! But when the sVo came back and reached out to me it was unreal, especially when Page gave me the chance to have a match again Lucy Von Drake, someone that I have had so much history with out side the sVo”
Katie Smith: “Now Lucy von Drake has been very vocal about wanting a women’s division in the sVo…..”
Smith doesn’t get the chance to finish the question, as from behind Jupiter James is floored with a punch to the back of the head by Lucy Von Drake! Von Drake stomps away on Jupiter James on the floor, with the Las Vegas Champion JVD stopping anyone from stepping in and stopping the beat down!
After Lucy Von Drake has sufficiently kicked Jupiter James enough times, she picks up the microphone that was dropped by Katie Smith as she ran away from the scene.
Lucy Von Drake: “Listen here girl, there is no woman in the sVo who is on my level now, in the past or in the future. I am the baddest bitch in the sVo, and anyone that wants to test me will end up under my foot, just like you are right now!”
Lucy Von Drake gives one last stomp to Jupiter James, before walking away from the scene of the crime with her husband in tow!
Nathan Judge vs. Joe Barone
“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 continues to boo Nathan Judge as he stands tall in the ring looking ready for the match to begin.
‘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 the sVo Championship belt over one should, and the sVo Tag Team Championship belt over the other. Alongside Moretti and dressed for the battle is the big Italian enforcer, Joe Barone, who is wearing the sVo Tag Team Championship around his waist. Moretti and Barone slowly make their 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.
Whilst Moretti cockily walks around at ringside with all of the gold, Barone and Judge stare each other down across the ring and wait for the referee’s signal for the match to officially get started! The bell rings and both big men slowly make their way towards each other in the middle of the ring, before beginning to trade big right hands back and forth.
Barone, the bigger and stronger of the competitors, quickly gets the upper hand over the former Las Vegas Champion, backing him into the ring ropes and then taking him by the arm and sending him across the ring. Judge bounces back into the middle of the ring, and Barone lands a big boot to send him down to the mat with authority.
Judge rolls up to his feet feeling the pain of the big boot, but Barone is straight back on him with some right hands. Judge absorbs a few punches before landing a knee to the midsection of his opponent to halt the attack. Judge fires back with a few right hands of his own, before landing a big head butt which sends Barone into the corner. Judge lands some big stomps in the corner on his opponent, before taking a few steps back and then landing a running knee to the Tag Team Champion!
The fans give a mixed reaction to the move as Moretti complains to the referee at ringside, however, Judge continues the offense as he pulls Barone up to his feet and then takes him down with a suplex. With Barone on the mat, Judge floats over and makes the cover.
No! Barone kicks out with authority and the match continues! Judge lands some big kicks as Barone gets to his feet, with Moretti screaming instruction at his tag team partner from ringside. Barone fights back with some big punches, before scooping up Judge and landing a backbreaker in the middle of the ring. Judge struggles up to a standing position, but the big Italian born Barone is back on him with some stiff knee strikes, followed by a big forearm chop across the chest. Judge stumbles back in pain, before Barone sends him into the corner of the ring.
With Judge in the corner, Barone runs at his opponent and lands a big clothesline! Judge stumbles out of the corner of the ring and straight into a powerslam from Barone who makes the cover.
Judge manages to kick out at the very last second! Barone looks angry at the referee for not counting the three, but Judge uses the time to slowly rise up to his feet. Judge fights back with some right hands on the Tag Team Champion, before aiming a stiff kick to the knee of his opponent. Barone staggers over in pain, and Judge takes the opportunity to take him down to the mat with a double arm takedown!
The crowd gives a mixed reaction as Judge stomps away on Joe Barone as he slowly pulls himself to his feet, before bouncing off of the ring ropes and returning with a big spear! The momentum now all looks with the former Las Vegas Champion Judge as he stands over Barone!
On the outside of the ring, Moretti senses the match slipping away from Barone, and quickly jumps up onto the ring apron with his two title belts! Moretti aims a title belt in the direction of Judge’s head, but Judge ducks under the attempted title shot to the face from the champion, before knocking Moretti off of the ring apron with a big right hand!
However, the distraction seems to have done its job as Judge turns back to face his opponent, only to be grabbed around the throat by Joe Barone! The crowd boo Barone as he lifts Judge into the air with one hand and throws him down to the mat with a chokeslam! With Judge down, Barone quickly makes the cover!
It’s all over, and Joe Barone picks up the three count and the victory!
The fans boo loudly as Barone rises up to his feet and has his arm raised in the air in victory by the referee! Anthony Moretti joins Barone in the ring, still holding his jaw from the attack from Judge, and the pair celebrate the victory as the fans boo loudly.
Winner via pinfall: Joe Barone
Hold the Line
With Nathan Judge still on the mat, Moretti and Barone turn their attention from their celebrations to the Canadian, with Moretti still feeling his jaw from the right hand that he was hit with earlier in the match. Moretti looks like he directing traffic as he pushes the referee out of the way, and tells Barone to grab hold of Judge!
The referee is powerless to do anything as the sVo Champion Moretti throws him out of the ring, whilst Barone positions Judge again for a chokeslam! The fans boo loudly as Barone drills Judge in the middle of the ring with the big chokeslam, before Anthony Moretti signals for his finishing move! Moretti circles around Judge as he begins to get to his feet, but before the Canadian can get to a standing position, there is a cheer from the crowd as ‘Pretty Vegas’ by INXS hits the sound system and out onto the top of the entrance ramp walks JD James, with Johnny All Star & Gunner Lang to his left and Hugo Ryzing and Darwin Jones to his right!
Moretti and Barone looked shocked by the appearance as JD James points down to the ring, and the four newest re-signings to the sVo roster march down towards the sVo Tag Team Champions!
Moretti and Barone look at each other and look ready to stand and fight, but with memories of Seasons Beatings still fresh, Moretti and Barone bail out of the ring just as the four reach the ring apron and escape through the crowd!
The fans boo loudly as All Star, Lang, Jones and Ryzing climb into the ring and dominate, whilst Moretti and Barone make their way through the crowd with their tails between their legs!
The camera heads backstage to the locker room of Yoshi Ono and Scott Washington, where Ono is licking his wounds from the earlier attack from Orlando Fox, whilst Scott Washington is sitting in silent preparation of his main event match against CJ Dreamer later this evening, knowing that Dreamer will be out for revenge for his actions a few weeks ago!
Standing over the two big superstars is Amy Page, who looks in confident mood as she paces back and forth.
Amy Page: “Right, Orlando Fox is becoming the type of problem that needs a permanent solution, the idea was that you take him out Yoshi after what he did to Scott at Seasons Beatings….”
Page stares at the big man, who looks at the wounds inflicted on him earlier by Fox before staring back angrily.
Amy Page: “Never mind, we will deal with him properly next week. We still have CJ Dreamer to deal with this week. Scott, you need to get that job done so we can move up those rankings. Another shot at the sVo Championship and those Tag Team Championships is what I want for us by the time the next PPV rolls around, let’s get things done!”
Page claps her hands, but as she does the door swings open, and in steps to the locker room the crazed Orlando Fox, with a kendo stick in hand!
Ono and Washington protect Page before protecting themselves, and the trio manage to escape the locker room with barely any strikes from the mad man, before locking Fox in the locker room as the scene fades out!
Hiro Ryuu vs. JVD
‘Starman’ by David Bowie hits the sound system and the fans rise to their feet as the mysterious Hiro Ryuu slowly steps out onto the top of the entrance ramp. Ryuu drops to his knee and raises a finger in the air for a few seconds before slowly pointing his finger down towards the ring. Ryuu then rises to his feet and walks slowly to the ring and rolls under the bottom rope. Ryuu climbs to the second rope of the nearest turnbuckle and looks out at the crowd before backflipping to a standing position in the ring!
“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.
JVD hands his belt to Lucy Von Drake on the outside of the ring who proudly parades the belt around the ringside, as the referee calls for the bell to be rung and the match to get started!

JVD cockily stands over Hiro Ryuu in the middle of the ring, with the Las Vegas Champion looking dominant over his opponent! Hiro Ryuu slowly begins to rise to his feet dispute the stomps from the champion, before trying to fight back with some more stiff kicks. JVD however cuts the kicks off as he grabs the leg of his opponent and then sends him down to the mat with a dragon screw takedown. With Ryuu down on the mat, JVD works over the leg of Ryuu before locking in a Boston crab in the middle of the ring!
The fans boo loudly as JVD screams at his opponent to tap whilst pulling back on his submission hold. The referee asks Ryuu if he wants to quit, but the Japanese star shakes his bravely begins to inch himself towards the bottom rope! The fans will Ryuu on, and thanks to their support he finally manages to reach out and grab the bottom rope to break the hold! JVD keeps the hold locked on for the full five count of the referee before finally releasing it at the demand of the referee!
Instead of going back to work on his opponent and taking advantage of his weakened state from the submission hold, JVD walks over and gets a kiss from his wife through the ring ropes, drawing even more boos from the crowd directed towards the sVo Las Vegas Champion!
JVD turns back and stomps away on Ryuu a few times before pulling him up to his feet. JVD lands some stiff chops across the chest of Ryuu, before sending him into the ring ropes. JVD looks for a back body drop as Ryuu bounces back, however Ryuu has the match scouted and counters with a kick to the face of his opponent! JVD stumbles away holding his face, before Ryuu follows up with a European uppercut and then a springboard dropkick to send the Las Vegas Champion down!
JVD looks shocked as he staggers up to his feet in the corner of the ring, but Hiro Ryuu runs at his opponent and nails a big boot on the Las Vegas Champion! JVD again looks unsteady on his feet as he stumbles out of the corner, allowing Ryuu the chance to nail a kick to the midsection and set up a big elevated DDT in the middle of the ring! With JVD being spiked on his head, Ryuu rolls him over and makes the cover!
JVD kicks out at the very last second to save the match! Lucy Von Drake looks nervous on the outside of the ring as Ryuu gets to his feet, still looking shocked that he didn’t get the three count right there! The fans continue to cheer on Ryuu, as the star from Japan calls for his finishing move! Ryuu waits for JVD to get to his feet, before grabbing JVD by the arm and spinning him into the ‘Tokyo Sunrise’! The fans pop for the move, but before Ryuu can make the cover, Lucy von Drake leaps up onto the ring apron to distract the referee and stop him from counting any pinfall attempt!
The fans boo as Lucy Von Drake gives attitude to the referee from the ring apron, but as she does there is a cheer as Jupiter James comes running down the entrance ramp! James grabs Lucy Von Drake from behind and pulls her down off of the ring apron before laying in her with right hands! Back in the ring, Ryuu seizes on the opportunity and rolls over JVD to make the cover!
It’s all over and in a shock outcome, it is Hiro Ryuu who scores the victory over the reigning sVo Las Vegas Champion James von Drake!
Jupiter James and Lucy Von Drake continue to brawl on the outside of the ring as referees rush down to the ring to try and separate them, however, in the ring, it is Ryuu who has his hand raised in the air in what is surely his biggest sVo victory so far!
Winner via pinfall: Hiro Ryuu
The camera heads back to the parking lot, where Anthony Moretti and Joe Barone hurriedly rush towards their rental car, struggling to hold all of their gold as they go! The pair seem to have left in such a hurry that Joe Barone hasn’t even had time to get changed from his match earlier in the night!
Behind the sVo Champion is Katie Smith, camera crew just behind her and a microphone in hand. Joe Barone throws the gold into the car as Moretti climbs into the drivers seat.
Katie Smith: “Wait Anthony, can we get a quick word? Are you guys running from JD James and his new group?”
Moretti scoffs at the suggestion as he tries to push Smith out of the way and close the door to the car whilst turning the key in the ignition.
Anthony Moretti: “We don’t run, we are just…. Re-grouping. It’s four against two out there, but don’t worry once we re-group then JD James won’t know what hit him!”
The door to the parking lot swings open, with Johnny All Star, Gunner Lang, Hugo Ryzing and Darwin Jones bursting through it! Moretti and Barone spot the four stars running at them, and Moretti quickly pushes Katie Smith out of the way and stomps on the gas, causing the car to speed away from the scene with a squeal of tyres despite the door not even being cleared!
Johnny All Star runs after the car a few steps before turning and giving up. All Star has a smirk on his face as he looks at his allies before looking over at Katie Smith.
Johnny All Star: “Looks like the sVo has a coward for a champion! He can’t run forever!”
The scene fades out as the group head back into the arena with the sVo Champion and his Tag Team Championship partner already seemingly clocked out for the evening!
CJ Dreamer vs. Scott Washington
“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.
“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.
With the two former Tag Team Champions turned bitter rivals staring across the ring at each other, the head referee Nick Jaxx calls for the bell to be rung and the main event of the night to get started!
Washington and Dreamer stare each other down for a few seconds, before slowly moving towards each other and nailing each other with some big right hands! The fans cheer the back and forth action, until the stronger Washington begins to get the upper hand of the exchange, before taking Dreamer down with a double leg takedown. Washington lays into Dreamer with some mounted punches, before Dreamer is finally able to fight his way up to a standing position. However, Washington doesn’t give his opponent any time to rest, as he is straight back on him with knees to the midsection to back him into the corner of the ring.
Dreamer bravely tries to fight his way out of the corner of the ring with some right hands, before aiming a head butt at his former Tag Team partner to try and change the momentum of the match. However despite Washington being uneasy on his feet after the big move, as Dreamer bounces off of the ring ropes and looks for a running clothesline to knock Washington down, Washington counters by grabbing Dreamer and throwing him to the mat with a belly to belly suplex!
The fans boo the big move from Washington, but he shrugs off the noise from the fans as he drags Dreamer up to his feet and repeats the suplex, sending Dreamer flying across the ring! Dreamer looks in real trouble as he struggles up to his feet, whilst Washington looks confident in the corner of the ring! Dreamer throws a desperate right hand in the direction of his opponent, but Washington ducks the fist of his opponent before grabbing him in a waist lock! Dreamer tries to struggle out with back elbows, but Washington drives Dreamer back down to the mat on the back of his head with a big German suplex!
However despite the massive move from Washington, he isn’t finished there as he keeps his arms locked around the waist of his opponent and drags him up to his feet!

With the main event over, as is customary at the end of the night the ring announcer Natasha Ortiz climbs into the ring and begins to thank the fans for their attendance and to have a safe trip home as the excited fans begin to rise to their feet and make their way out of the arena, and the sVo copyright information appears on the bottom of the screen for the fans watching at home.
However without warning, “Hillbilly Joke” by Hank 3 hits and the arena lights flicker red and white. After a few seconds, the crowd rush back to their seats in anticipation recognising the theme music! After around a minute of the atmosphere building, the man himself appears at the top of the entrance ramp, as William Vorheez walks through the curtain with his long cloak on and the old sVo Championship belt around his waist! As Vorheez marches towards the ring he is greeted with a wall of noise from the crowd! Vorheez climbs into the ring over the top rope and raises his arms up high.
Everyone in the arena is still in shock, including all of the sVo staff at ringside, as Vorheez, the last reigning sVo Champion before the 2013 closure, paces around the ring like a caged lion, before taking the microphone from Ortiz.
Vorheez holds the microphone to his lips for a few seconds, as the crowd begins to quieten down, waiting for the man himself to speak.
William Vorheez: “Las Vegas…. sVo…. It’s been a long time.”
There is a big cheer from the crowd, but Vorheez is unmoved.
William Vorheez: “But no matter how long it has been, I am here tonight because I have been made aware of an imposter. A false prophet claiming to sit on the throne of the sVo. Ladies and gentlemen, there is still only one rightful sVo Champion. That sVo Champion has been reigning for 2,820 days, that sVo Champion is the longest reigning sVo Champion in history…. That sVo Champion is me!”
Vorheez unstraps the old sVo Championship from around his waist and holds it up into the air, as Against All Odds finally heads off of the air with the crowd in shock!
What does the reappearance of William Vorheez mean for the sVo and current sVo Champion Anthony Moretti, who already has more than enough on his plate?
