sVo Against All Odds
Goodfellas Casino Arena
Sunday 9th May 2021
The sVo logo fades on and then off of a black screen before ‘Venom’ by Eminem hits and the opening video package for ‘Against All Odds’ begins to play, featuring classic action with highlights from the likes of Psyko Stevo, Bobby Dean, Anthony Moretti, Roscoe Shame, William Vorheez, Nathan Paradine, JVD & Night.
As the package begins to come to an end, the live camera shows a shot of the outside of the Goodfellas Casino, sitting on the heart of the Las Vegas strip, before heading inside and panning around the sold-out Goodfellas Casino Arena. Fireworks begin to shoot up from the top of the entrance ramp as fans jump out at the camera trying to get their face on TV as the atmosphere for tonight’s show continues to build, with the music playing over the arena’s sound system.
The camera swings around to see the commentary 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 match ups for tonight’s show are shown.
The camera head backstage where there is a big cheer from the fans watching on the big screen from in the arena, as JD James walks into shot. The legendary sVo manager and leader of the ‘Horizon’ stable looks in confident mood as he walks around catering backstage, high fiving and nodding to everyone as he passes them. JD James clearly looks like a popular figure backstage, however the mood changes as James runs across two men he is certainly not popular with, former sVo Tag Team Champions Anthony Moretti and Joe Barone.
James looks around for back up as the massive Barone blocks his path, however everyone behind him quickly melts off into the background. JD James gulps as he stares up at the massive Joe Barone standing in front of him, with Anthony Moretti smirking near by.
Anthony Moretti: “Well, well! JD, unlike you to be caught out without any of your Horizon boys for back up!”
James stares at Moretti with contempt.
JD James: “What do you want Anthony? You want to beat me up is that it? If you can’t wait until the Organised Chaos match then why don’t you take a shot now.”
JD James points to his chin as he bravely extends it out in front of Moretti, Moretti however laughs JD James off as Barone gently pushes JD James backwards with a hand to his chest.
Anthony Moretti: “Come on, I am not going to hit a defenseless old man. I am glad to run into you though, with Organised Chaos only a few weeks away I hear that you are going to be stepping into the ring right? Seriously, when was the last time you were between the ropes? The 1960’s?”
James looks offended as he stares back at Moretti.
JD James: “Listen kid, I have more experience in the wrestling business than your whole Blood Money group put together. I have been in my fair share of matches, fair enough that I have been retired for a while but if there is one thing I would be happy to come out of retirement for it would be to put you in your place junior!”
Moretti smirks as he slowly shakes his head, half impressed with the old man.
Anthony Moretti: “You god balls JD, I will give you that. But…. I think maybe you should consider stepping aside. This is going to be the biggest match of a lot of my teams careers, I really don’t want it tarnished by having the asterisk next to it in the history books to say that we won by beating an old man to death.”
James looks enraged as his face begins to turn red with anger.
JD James: “Listen, I might be long in the tooth but I can still hang with any of you fools! Tell you what, meet me out there in the ring tonight and I will show you!”
Moretti laughs off the suggestion.
Anthony Moretti: “Come on JD, there is a fine line between brave and stupid! I tell you what, if you want a little warm up match how about I get Page to book you against Lucy tonight?”
JD James looks insulted.
JD James: “Why don’t you give me Lucy and James Von Drake, I will show you just what you have to worry about in the Organised Chaos match!”
Moretti shakes his head in disbelief as he looks up at Barone.
Anthony Moretti: “Ok you can face both the Von Drake’s, I am not unfair though and I don’t want their reputation ruined either, so bring a partner of your choice with you and I will get Page to set this thing up tonight!”
JD James angrily brushes past Moretti and away from the scene after nodding his head in agreement. Moretti slowly turns to face Barone with a disbelieving look on his face.
Anthony Moretti: “Can you believe the old guy took the bait on that one so easily?”
Moretti shakes his head in disbelief whilst laughing to himself, as Barone stares back with a blank expression, as the scene fades out.
I Want Vorheez
The camera cuts to the office of sVo Owner Jon Page, with the boss sitting behind his large wooden desk, dressed as always in a smart dark suit. Page is tapping away on his laptop as the door suddenly bursts open and in steps Orlando Fox with an aggressive expression on his face. Page looks up angrily at Fox as the former Hardcore Champion slowly walks to the front of Page’s desk and slumps down in a chair.
Jon Page: “Orlando…. Please come in…”
Fox doesn’t seem to understand what Page is saying to him as he looks around and shrugs his shoulders. Page sighs as he leans back in his chair and stares at Fox.
Jon Page: “Well, what can I do for you? Let’s make it quick as the show is about to start and I want to catch the first match.”
Fox aggressively leans forward.
Orlando Fox: “I saw last week you got beef with Vorheez finally.”
Page slowly shakes his head as he begins to explain himself.
Jon Page: “No I wouldn’t say beef, it was just a small disagre…”
Page catches himself explaining things to Fox and slowly shakes himself out of it.
Jon Page: “Hang on a minute, what do you want?”
Orlando Fox: “I want Vorheez in a match tonight. If I can beat the sVo Champion then that is going to shoot me up those rankings yo.”
Page looks back at Fox for a few seconds before shrugging his shoulders and giving a nod of the head.
Jon Page: “Fine, you got it. I am sure Vorheez would be glad of some competition ahead of his sVo Championship match at the PPV.”
Fox screws his face up.
Orlando Fox: “I aint just no competition homie. If I beat Vorheez tonight then I want my shot!”
Page leans back as he stares back at Fox, remembering that Fox only had an opportunity at the Las Vegas Championship a few weeks ago which he was unsuccessful in.
Jon Page: “Whatever. You win tonight and you get a sVo Championship shot later down the line. Seems fair.”
Fox rises up from his seat and gives the air a little fist pump, obviously happy with himself. Fox doesn’t look back as he exits the room as quickly as he entered, leaving Page deep in thought about the sVo Championship picture as the scene fades out.

The rest of the group don’t seem to share JD’s confidence.

Don’t worry, I got your back out there, I will team up with you and make sure we take out the Von Drake’s!”

Amy Page: “Yeah that belt in your hand, that is actually what I am out here to talk to you about! You see in my hand here I hold the contract for the Roll The Dice 2021 sVo Championship match which has my client Yoshi Ono’s name on it! You see Yoshi is looking forward to slapping that bear hug on whoever is the Champion at Roll the Dice and claiming that belt for yourself!”
The fans boo at the mention of Yoshi Ono, who was dominant in singles action earlier in the night.
Amy Page: “However as the #1 contender, Yoshi is the only name that is on the PPV contract so far, because you still have a mandatory Championship defence to complete before we get to the end of the month!”
Vorheez looks a little confused as he stares at Page who is still holding the contract in the air.

The fans boo loudly, as Vorheez stares back in disbelief. Page smiles back at Vorheez for a few seconds, before cheekly waving to the Champion and making her way back around the curtain to the backstage area.
