sVo Championship Match
Anthony Moretti (c) vs. William Vorheez
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 laser 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. Vorheez marches slowly down to the ring, his eyes fixated on the official sVo Champion who is still bleeding heavily in the ring, looking determined, and focused. As Vorheez climbs onto the ring apron and climbs inside the ring the lights slowly come up and the music fades, Vorheez undoes his jacket and reveals the old sVo Championship underneath. Removing the belt he lifts it high in the air showing that he is the real reigning sVo Champion.
Vorheez eyes Moretti as he tries to pull himself up to his feet in the corner of the ring and wipe the blood from his eyes. The referee takes the old sVo Championship belt from Vorheez that he never lost in 2013, and Moretti’s sVo Championship belt that he won in 2020, before holding them both in the air to signal that the match will crown an undisputed sVo Champion tonight!
The referee calls for the bell to be rung and the match is officially underway! Vorheez takes only a few seconds to jump forward and land a kick to the midsection on Moretti, before lifting the Champion into the air and nailing the ‘Wrath of Vorheez’! It looks all over already as Vorheez makes the cover!
Moretti kicks out at the very last millisecond!
Vorheez looks down at Moretti with wide eyes, thinking that it was all over right there! Moretti tries to stagger up to his feet, but Vorheez jumps straight back on him with lands some big right hands. Moretti looks like he might be out on his feet as Vorheez slams his head face first into the turnbuckle, before taking him down with an impressive spinning spinebuster.
Vorheez lands some more mounted punches on Moretti, before allowing him back up to a standing position. Moretti looks unsteady on his feet, and Vorheez follows up with a double arm DDT in the middle of the ring. Vorheez makes another cover, looking to win himself the chance to call himself the undisputed champion!
No! Moretti again kicks out and Vorheez begins to look frustrated. Vorheez pulls Moretti up to his feet once again, before landing a big head butt to the already cut forehead of the champion. Moretti stumbles away on his feet, and Vorheez takes him down with a big shoulder breaker. With Moretti on the mat, Vorheez scoops him up before landing a brainbuster in the middle of the ring!
With Moretti down, Vorheez calls for his finishing move once again and begins to wait for Moretti to get into position. But as he does the fans begin to boo loudly as down the entrance ramp walks Money Malone, JVD & Joe Barone! All three men look battered and beaten from their earlier matches, however they look at Vorheez with evil intent in their eyes! Vorheez stops what he is doing and looks back at Blood Money, waiting for the group to make their way to him!
However Blood Money only make it half way down the entrance ramp before they are jumped from behind by the new Las Vegas and Tag Team Champions! Gunner Lang, Darwin Jones and Hugo Ryzing take the fight to Blood Money, as the last hope of Moretti keeping hold of his title seems to be slipping away!
Vorheez turns back towards Moretti, but as he does Moretti rolls him up into a surprise cover!
No! Vorheez kicks out and quickly gets to his feet with a shocked look on his face! Moretti has now lost a lot of blood, but seems to be wildly swinging punches in the direction of Vorheez! Moretti connects with a few punches, before Vorheez fights back with some of his own!
Moretti uses his last ounce of strength to roll out of the ring and make his way around to the time keepers area, before snatching his title belt from the ring announcer Natasha Ortiz! Moretti staggers back up the entrance ramp with his belt, waving Vorheez off! The fans boo loudly towards Moretti, but Vorheez doesn’t look like he is willing for the match to end this way as he chases after the champion! The fans cheer as Vorheez runs after Moretti and drags him back to the ring, before throwing him back in under the bottom rope!
Vorheez climbs into the ring, and the fans cheer as he nails Moretti with big right hands, knocking him straight back down to the mat every time he gets to his feet. Vorheez eventually signals to the crowd before pulling Moretti up into the air, and nailing him with the ‘Wrath of Vorheez’ in the middle of the ring! The fans cheer as Vorheez drops down and makes the cover!
It’s all over and William Vorheez is the new sVo Champion! The fans cheer loudly as Vorheez rises up to his feet and is presented with both of the sVo Championship belts by the referee! Vorheez lifts both belts into the air in celebration as his music hits the sound system!
