sVo Against All Odds
Goodfellas Casino Arena
Sunday 22nd August 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 inside. 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 matchups for tonight’s show are shown.
A New Horizon
‘Viva Las Vegas’ by Metal Elvis hits the sound system and the crowd pop as the ‘Welcome to Las Vegas’ sign appears on the giant screen and pyros shoot up from both sides of the entrance ramp. After a few seconds the man himself, Johnny All-Star steps out onto the top of the entrance ramp and holds the sVo Heavyweight Championship belt in the air! All Star wildy celebrates at the top of the entrance ramp with the belt and receives a mixed reaction from the crowd, who are still seemingly not happy with how the main event of Ultimate Victory 2021 went down!
All Star doesn’t seem to care however, as he throws the title belt over his shoulder before waving to the backstage area. Soon All Star is joined on the entrance ramp by Hugo Ryzing & Darwin Jones holding their sVo Tag Team Championship belts! Next up on the entrance ramp is Gunner Lang with the sVo Las Vegas Championship belt! The four sVo Champions pose with their belts on the top of the entrance ramp, before they wave to the back again and are joined by JD James, holding the Victory Cup trophy won by Gunner Lang at Ultimate Victory! The five men pose again, before they all head down towards the ring with the gold! All five men climb into the ring, before JD James grabs a microphone.
JD James: “Ladies and gentleman, let me present to you the most dominant force in the history of the sVo, Horizon!!”
The fans mostly cheer Horizon as they pose with their belts and trophies again, despite some fans still not forgiven All Star for what they see as a tainted victory.
JD James: “Never in the history of the sVo has one group held all of the gold like this. Now these four men beside my thought that there chance to be champions in the sVo had died along with this company back in 2013, yet here we are holding all the gold!”
James fist pumps the air, clearly overjoyed which gets a cheer from the fans, before he hands the microphone to Johnny All Star. There is a mixed reaction from the crowd as All Star addresses them.
Johnny All Star: “I get it guys I get it. The main event of Ultimate Victory did not go down the way I wanted it to go down. It’s not the way I wanted to finally win the biggest prize of my career… but then I think back of all the times I have been screwed out of this belt and I think the wrestling gods kind of owed me this one….”
Another mixed reaction from the crowd.
Johnny All Star: “Now I promise each and every one of you that I had no hand in what happened at Ultimate Victory, it wasn’t my doing at all, just an unfortunate coincidence. William Vorheez has a lot of enemies over the years, it could have been any one of them that attacked him at the PPV….”
Loud boos from the crowd as the rest of Horizon look at each other awkwardly.
Johnny All Star: “But I am going to be a champion that the sVo deserves, which is why if Vorheez works his way back up the rankings I will have no problem facing him again for this championship….”
The fans boo loudly at All Star, with many expecting Vorheez to be given a title shot immediately after the way the match went down. All Star looks like he is finished trying to appeal to the crowd, but there is a loud cheer as Gunner Lang takes the microphone.
Gunner Lang: “Speaking of title matches Johnny…..”
Lang takes the Victory Cup from JD James and holds it in the air.
Gunner Lang: “You know what this grants me right?”
Lang is all smiles, but JD James quickly tries to come between Lang and All Star and play peacemaker. All Star doesn’t look like he likes what Lang is suggesting, but as the Tag Team Champions try and help JD James diffuse the situation, there is a loud pop as “Abominator” by Doyle hits the sound system!
All eyes turn to the entrance ramp, as after a few seconds the former sVo Heavyweight Champion William Vorheez appears with a steel chair! Vorheez looks furious as he storms down to the ring with the chair in hand! Horizon look like they want to try and reason with Vorheez as heads straight for them!
JD James: William, William! Calm down! I know you must be angry but this isn’t the way to…”
James is cut off as Vorheez climbs into the ring with the chair and begins to swing it wildly! The Horizon members duck and weave out of the way of the steel, before they all quickly bail out on different sides of the ring! Horizon re-group on the entrance ramp and back up towards the locker rooms, as Vorheez stands in the ring with the chair and challenges Horizon to get back in and face him! The fans cheer Vorheez on as referees rush down to the ringside area to get between Horizon and the former Heavyweight Champion, as the broadcast cuts to a commercial break amongst a chaotic start, with Vorheez clearly blaming Horizon for what went down in the main event at Ultimate Victory!

Getting Back On Track
The cameras head backstage to the locker room of Scott Washington and Yoshi Ono are silently preparing for their upcoming tag team match on opposite sides of the room. Both men can barely even look at each other, as the door open and in stomps an angry looking Amy Page. Page looks from one man to the other, before shaking her head in frustration.
Amy Page: “RIGHT! I have had enough of this!”
Both men slowly turn and face Amy Page.
Amy Page: “You both have the potentially to be the most dominant force in the sVo. That could be us with all the gold like Horizon have, but it’s not going to happen unless you both get on the same page!”
Ono and Washington stare at each other, but definitely don’t look very much on the same page.
Amy Page: “Now Scott, I know you are angry about what happened at the PPV, and you are right, it was out of order!”
Washington nods his head in agreement as he looks smugly over at Yoshi Ono, who doesn’t look at all happen. Ono goes to protest, but Page holds a hand up to stop him.
Amy Page: “Yoshi, I know you are not happy with what Scott did in your Victory Cup match, and you are right it was out of order!”
This time it is Yoshi Ono’s chance to look smug and in the right.
Amy Page: “But now we put all that shit behind us and get back to winning ways! Now shake hands!”
Ono and Washington stare at each other, but don’t make the move to shake on it.
Amy Page: “I said shake hands and put this shit to bed!”
Amy Page gives Washington and Ono the death glare, before they finally and reluctantly shake hands briefly.
Page gives both men the evil eye, before leaving the locker room and slamming the door behind her, leaving both men to prepare to be on the same page in their upcoming tag team match.

William Vorheez: “Don’t even try and deny it JD.”

JD James: “Honestly William, we watched the whole scene from the locker room. Ask any one of the guys, hell ask Flip Dixon, he will vouch! We were no where near the ring that night! Johnny doesn’t know what happened, it was the first thing we asked him!”
Vorheez sneers as he leans in closer to JD’s ear.
William Vorheez: “We both know that Johnny All Star set this whole thing up. You were either complicit or you have turned a blind eye. Either way the whole of Horizon is going to pay the price for the sins of Johnny fucking All Star.”
Vorheez stares into the eyes of JD James to show him just how serious he is, before dropping him down from his grip and leaving him in a crumpled mess on the floor. JD James gasps for breath as Vorheez slowly walks away from the scene.

JD James: “How about you fill me in on this whole Moretti deal. A problem shared is a problem halved…”
Athena looks at James for a few seconds, before shaking her head.
Athena: “Sorry JD, I can’t do it. If anyone finds out….”
JD James: “But what does he have over you? Some kind of secret?”
Athena: “It’s not my secret exactly…. I can’t talk about it JD I’m sorry.”
James shrugs his shoulders and reluctantly gives up his line of questioning.
JD James: “Well how about you at least take your mind off of it and help us out tonight? We have a big problem with Vorheez, he seems to have it in his head that we had something to do with the lights going out during his main event at Ultimate Victory.”
Athena: “Sorry JD, Moretti won’t let me help you guys out…. I wish I had never come to the sVo….”

The Secret Pt.2
The cameras cut to the locker room of Blood Money, where the five founding members of the group plus a miserable looking Athena are sitting watching the replays of the Tag Team Championship match on the TV. The five founding members are laughing and look in a jovial mood, whilst Athena looks miserable.
Anthony Moretti: “Oh man, reward that so I can watch it one more time!”
Barone grabs the TV remote and rewinds with a smile on his face.
Anthony Moretti: “The fact that JD James was out in the ring only an hour or so ago crowing about holding all the gold makes it that much sweeter.”
The group erupt into laughter again, all apart from Athena.
Anthony Moretti: “Not only did they lose those Tag belts, but they are losing the Las Vegas Championship in the main event, right Money?”
Money Malone nods at Moretti and high fives the leader of Blood Money.
Money Malone: “You’re damn right boss man. That gold is coming home tonight!”
The group all give words of encouragement to Money Malone, until the mood chances as Moretti stands up and circles around Athena.
Anthony Moretti: “I guess the only thing we can’t take away from them is that Victory Cup, especially after I got screwed at Ultimate Victory…. Right Athena?”
The five sets of eyes stare a hole through Athena, until she slowly and sadly nods her head.
Anthony Moretti: “Well incase you get any more ideas tonight, just remember you are down to your last chance now…. Any more missteps and your big bad secret accidently gets out into the wide world…..”
Athena gulps and slowly nods her head, as the scene fades out.
Nathan Judge vs. Jacob Izaz
‘Not for Radio’ by Nas hits the sound system and the fans cheer as onto the top of the entrance ramp swaggers the confident looking Jacob Izaz. Izaz holds his arms in the air and stands motionless for a few seconds as flash bulbs go off around the arena, before he slowly continues his swagger down the entrance ramp towards the ring. Izaz hops up onto the ring apron and again throws his arms up in the air to poses for the crowd, before climbing through the ropes and into the squared circle.
‘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.
The fans are firmly behind Jacob Izaz as the bell rings for the action to get started!

Winner via pinfall: Jacob Izaz
The cameras head backstage to the office of Jon Page, where the sVo Owner is standing behind his desk looking up at a pair of angry looking former Tag Team Champions. Page, who isn’t a small man himself, looks dwarfed by Darwin Jones and Hugo Ryzing, as Jones bangs his fist on the table in anger.
Darwin Jones: “You saw what happened out there Page! We want a rematch and we want it tonight!”
Ryzing nods his head, but Page holds his arms out in a ‘what can I do’ gesture.
Jon Page: “Guys, the Canadian Connection have already left the arena. Besides, your own Johnny All Star isn’t giving Vorheez a rematch when he got screwed out of his title, why should you get some?”
Jones and Ryzing look even more angry, as Ryzing leans forward menacingly.
Hugo Ryzing: “Johnny didn’t have anything to do with what happened, he told us so. You saw exactly what happened tonight! What kind of promotion are you running around here with all these screwy title matches? Give us the chance to put it right next show!”
Page looks up at the angry team, but before he can answer the door swings open, and in steps William Vorheez with a steel chair! Before anyone has any time to reach, Vorheez swings the chair and smashes it into the skull of Darwin Jones, sending the big man down! Ryzing throws a wild right at the former HeavyWeight Champion, but Vorheez ducks and slams the chair into the midsection of Ryzing, before grabbing him around the throat. Page warns Vorheez not to, but he doesn’t seem to be listening as he lifts Ryzing into the air and chokeslams him through Jon Page’s office desk!
With Ryzing and Jones down and not moving, Vorheez finally looks up at Page.
William Vorheez: “This doesn’t stop until someone owns up to what happened at Ultimate Victory.”
Page doesn’t reply as he stares back at Vorheez angrily, as the former Champion turns and leaves the office without a further word. Page sinks back into his office chair and admires the chaos around him, as the scene fades out.
sVo Las Vegas Championship Match
Gunner Lang (c) vs. Money Malone
“The Champ is Here” by O Fresh hits the sound system, and boos ring out as the arena is basked in a dull red glow. After a few seconds the boos get louder as Money Malone steps out onto the top of the entrance ramp wearing a ‘Blood Money’ t-shirt and holding a roll of dyed red dollar bills in his hand. Malone taunts at the top of the entrance ramp, before slowly walking down towards the ring. Malone throws the red dollar bills into the crowd before slowly climbing up into the ring and taunting on the middle as the music slowly fades out.
The familiar riff of AC/DC’s Thunderstruck fills the arena. As the pyro goes off on the entranceway Gunner Lang explodes onto the entrance ramp shooting off his own pyro from a gun while the sVo Tron shows Gunner and a band playing his entrance music. The fans are on their feet cheering and shout ‘Gunner’ along with the song. Gunner drops the pyro gun and runs down to the ring slapping hands with the fans and giving devil horns. He slides into the ring under the bottom rope and proceeds to take off his shirt and bandanna throwing them into the crowd.
Gunner Lang hands the sVo Las Vegas Championship belt to the referee, who holds it high in the air to signal that it will be on the line in tonight’s main event match! The fans cheer as the referee holds the belt up for a few seconds before passing it to the outside of the ring and calling for the match to get started!
Lang and Malone slowly move towards each other in the middle of the ring, but as Lang looks to tie up, Malone nails him with a knee to the midsection! The fans boo as Malone shoots Lang into the ring ropes and looks for a spinning heel kick as he bounces back, but Lang ducks under the leg of his opponent and lands a short arm clothesline to knock down the challenger.
Money Malone quickly gets back to a standing position, but Lang nails him with some big right hands before landing an impressive Elevated Gut Buster. With Money Malone down on the mat Lang looks to lock in a sharpshooter submission hold, but Malone quickly gets to the bottom rope before the move can be locked in. Malone rolls out of the ring to put some distance between himself and the champion, which causes the fans to boo the Blood Money man loudly.
Lang waits for Malone to get back into the ring, before rolling under the bottom rope himself and grabbing the challenger from behind! The referee looks reluctant to count out either man in a championship match, but as Lang tries to slam Malone face first into the security barrier, Malone counters with a back elbow before dropping his opponent across the barrier!
Gunner Lang staggers away holding his chest in pain from the impact, but Malone follows up by grabbing Lang by the arm and whipping him hard into the steel ring steps! Lang tries to pick him up from against the steps, but Malone quickly rolls him into the ring before leaping onto the ring apron. Malone slingshots over the top rope and lands an elbow drop onto the champion, before making the cover!
Gunner Lang kicks out and saves his championship reign! The fans cheer Lang getting his shoulder up, as Malone looks angrily at the referee thinking he had done enough to secure the gold right there.

Malone grabs hold of Lang and tries to lock in the ‘Money Maker’, but this time it is Lang who makes it to the bottom rope!
Malone finally breaks the hold, but as the referee backs him up, Lang gets to his feet! Malone runs at Lang to try and keep the offense on, but Lang scoops Malone up and hits a Military Press Slam! The fans cheer the big move, as Malone follows up with a big boot, before bouncing off of the ropes himself to hit a Double Axe Handle smash! Lang looks like he is rolling as he pulls Malone up to his feet and throws him into the corner of the ring before taunting to the fans!
Gunner Lang runs at Malone in the corner of the ring and hits a big ‘Boomer-lang’ followed up with a ‘Gunner-Struck’ to a pop from the crowd! It looks like it is all over and Lang is going to retain the title, until much like the main event of ‘Ultimate Victory’ the lights in the arena cut and the match is plunged into darkness!
There is confusion in the arena as boos ring out, before the lights come back on a minute later for Gunner Lang to be laid out in the middle of the ring, much like William Vorheez was at the PPV! Money Malone can’t believe his luck, as he suddenly realises what is happening before crawling over the champion to make the cover!
It’s all over and we have a new sVo Las Vegas Champion! Money Malone staggers up to his feet, and the referee quickly presents him with the title belt, before turning to check on the condition of Gunner Lang who is still motionless!
Money Malone celebrates with the first sVo gold of his career, as the fans boo loudly at what has just unfolded! With the lights cutting in two shows in a row resulting in two title changes, just who is behind these mysterious turn of events?
