sVo Against All Odds
Goodfellas Casino Arena
Sunday 21st February 2021
‘Venom’ by Eminem hits and the new 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 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. After the rundown, the cameras head backstage as the show gets started!
The cameras head straight backstage to the office of the sVo Owner Jon Page, where the boss himself is sat behind his desk, as always dressed in a dark suit. Surrounding Page is all members of Horizon, with the exception of Gunner Lang who was brutally beat down last event by the newly formed ‘Blood Money’ stable. Directly in front of Page and looking angry is JD James.
JD James: “Page, we were completely blindsided last week and Gunner was nearly blinded at the hands of Moretti and the rest of Blood Money. He walked down there expecting a fair fight against Von Drake and got ambushed! We need some revenge tonight!”
Jon Page: “Look, there is no way that I am letting this break down into gang warfare around here…. Not unless it is on PPV and I am making some money out of it that is….”
Page looks around at the members of Horizon flexing their muscles, none of them laughing at his half joke.
Jon Page: “Look I will tell you what I will do. In tonight’s main event one of you can get a shot at some revenge on JVD, one of you that is! You can even pick. However anyone else lays a hand on another member of Blood Money during that match or visa versa, your all suspended!”
The members of Horizon all look around at each other, before JD James slowly nods his approval to Page’s idea. The youngster all step forward to volunteer to take on Von Drake, however Johnny All Star steps forward with authority.
Johnny All Star: “He’s mine. He nearly took Gunner out of action forever, tonight I will do the same to him.”
Darwin Jones and Hugo Ryzing look at each other, before nodding and knowing that there is no arguing with All Star.
Tonight Blood Money and Horizon will clash for the first time officially, but who will come out on top?

Winner via pinfall: Lucy Von Drake
The camera heads backstage to the locker room of ‘Blood Money’ where the group is sitting around watching highlights of Lucy Von Drake’s match which has just taken place. The sVo Champion Anthony Moretti looks in confident mood, as Money Malone warms up for his debut match which is set to take place next!
Anthony Moretti: “Right guys, Lucy has already shown the way, now we just need two more wins tonight. Money, your up next and you will have no problem taking down Judge.”
Malone smirks and nods his head as he continues his warm up. Moretti turns his attention over to the Las Vegas Champion as the massive Jone Barone watches on whilst relaxing with his feet up on the leather sofa.
Anthony Moretti: “The main event is the important one. It’s the first time we get to truly go one on one with JD James’s group of merry little men. Send a message out there JVD!”
Von Drake nods his head as he polishes up his Las Vegas Championship belt. With all the gold in the ranks of Blood Money already, can they be stopped?”
The cameras stay backstage as they switch away from the locker room of Blood Money and head back to the office of Jon Page where the sVo Owner is still sitting behind his desk, looking considerably more stressed than earlier in the evening. There is a knock on the door before it slowly opens and in walks Hiro Ryuu. Ryuu nods his head to Page, who doesn’t look thrilled by the interruption.
Hiro Ryuu: “Mr Page, a moment of your time please sir?”
Page nods his head reluctantly, like Ryuu might as well carry on now he is already in the room. Ryuu smiles and nods back, before going into his pre-rehearsed speech.
Hiro Ryuu: “Thank you sir. I am here tonight to request a PPV title match against the Las Vegas Champion JVD. I know I haven’t been in the sVo for as long as many on the roster, but I have already defeated Von Drake in non title action, I think I deserve my shot!”
Page nods his head slowly as he considers what Ryuu is telling him.
Jon Page: “I get where you are coming from kid, but then again Gunner Lang also beat JVD two weeks ago so maybe he deserves his shot as well? I tell you what, if you cant beat Gunner Lang at the next event, then you got your shot!”
Ryuu looks slightly disappointed, but nods his head in agreement.
Hiro Ryuu: “Thank you Mr Page.”
Ryuu turns and begins to walk away from Page, however is called back before leaving the room.
Jon Page: “Oh Hiro… one thing…. If Johnny All Star wins in the main event tonight then it’s only right that he gets thrown in as well to make it a triple threat….”
Ryuu nods his head as the scene fades out.
Money Malone vs. Nathan Judge
“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.

Malone staggers back to his feet holding the back of his head in pain, but Judge bounces into the ring ropes and nearly cuts Malone in a half with a spear before making a cover of his own!
It looked like the hype around Malone’s debut was about to be wiped away right there, however Judge couldn’t quite get the three count! Judge looks frustrated, but keeps on the offence as he pounds Malone with some mounted punches before he is able to get to his feet. Judge grabs Malone and forces him to a standing position, before grabbing him in a front face lock.

The cameras head backstage to the locker room of ‘Horizon’ where the members of the group minus Gunner Lang are crowded around a monitor watching the celebrations of Money Malone, one of the newest members of the Blood Money stable. Despite the impressive victory for Malone, the group doesn’t seem too impressed with the newcomer.
Darwin Jones: “Give me five minutes in the ring with that punk, I’ll tear his arms off and beat him over his head with them.”
Ryzing smirks as he looks up at his fellow big man.
Hugo Ryzing: “Five minutes? I’ll do it in two!”
Darwin Jones: “Yeah your girlfriend says that about you…”
Jones and Ryzing playfully wrestle with each other, before JD James comes between them.
JD James: “Right guys, time to get serious. Blood Money is a serious threat right now, if you don’t believe me, just ask Gunner.”
The atmosphere grows quiet as the group think of their fallen comrade, taken out of action two weeks ago by Blood Money and still on the injured list.
Johnny All Star: “They shocked us all last week, but now we know just what a devious bastard Moretti is. Don’t worry, tonight I will get revenge for Gunner. Just make sure you all stay back here no matter what happens.”
The scene fades out with All Star fired up for tonight’s main event!
In the backstage area Orlando Fox is standing by with Katie Smith, who as always has a microphone in hand. Fox looks fired up for his match later tonight where he will take on Washington and Ono in tag team action after they accepted his challenge from the last event.
Katie Smith: “Orlando, you have a massive tag team match tonight where you get the chance for revenge. However we know you will be facing Scott Washington and Yoshi Ono but what we don’t know who is just who your opponent is!
Orlando Fox: “Well Katie, allow me to introduce you, someone that hates Washington and Ono as much as me….”
Fox waves off camera, and CJ Dreamer walks into the camera shot! The fans cheer for the sight of Dreamer on the screen as the hometown hero looks healed up after his recent beat down at the hands of Washington.
CJ Dreamer: “I’m not one for tag team matches Katie, but I couldn’t turn down the chance to get some revenge of my own. Fox, you stick with me and we will do ok.”
Dreamer walks off looking confident as Orlando Fox looks slightly put out at the orders from Dreamer.

‘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 arena goes pitch black as the opening guitar riff from “Abominator” by Doyle plays. Smoke billows up from the bottom of the staging area, as green lazer lights dance across the stage. Just as the opening riff comes to a close, two large hits of a drum can be heard, and pyro goes off syncing with them. The song dives in, as Vorheez makes his appearance at the top of the ramp. Wearing a long black, sleeveless coat, that has green stitching and it covered in small spikes, as well as a black, beat up, cowboy hat covering his eyes.

The Teacher is quickly back on the offence as he brings his opponent up to a standing position. The Teacher looks for a big boot to the face of Vorheez as he bounces back, but Vorheez side steps his opponent before taking him down with a big haymaker!
The Teacher looks rocked as he staggers to a standing position, but Vorheez continues the attack with a knee to the midsection before following up with double arm DDT to drop the masked man on his head!

It looks like Vorheez could make the cover and win the match after the combination of big moves on his opponent, however, the unofficial sVo Champion looks like he wants to out the exclamation on his return to sVo match as he signals to the crowd!

Katie Smith: “Amy, that was quite a dominating display for your team out there.”
Amy Page: “You are damn right it was. Look at the rest of the sVo roster Katie, there isn’t a team that competes with Scott Washington or Yoshi Ono. That might have been their first outing in an official tag team match, but they are already a well oiled machine!”
Katie Smith: “Do you think that they are finally ready to put the problems with Orlando Fox and CJ Dreamer beyond them and move on to other things?”
Page laughs at the question.
Amy Page: “Fox or Dreamer aren’t our problem, they never have been a problem to us! They should stick to their own level, we want a shot at the Tag Team Championships!”
