Goodfellas Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada
‘Hip Hop’ by Dead Prez blares out around the arena as sVo Showdown comes to life inside the Goodfella’s Casino in Las Vegas Nevada. The entrance music of 50% sVo Owner Jon Page is met with boos from the crowd, and then a few seconds later when the man himself steps onto the top of the entrance stage, there are even louder boos. Page is wearing a sharp black suit, and is clutching a large trophy in his hands as he walks down the entrance ramp before climbing into the ring. Page parades the trophy around the ring for a few minutes before placing it down in the centre of the ring and requesting a microphone to speak to the public.
Jon Page – “Ladies and gentlemen of Las Vegas, let me welcome you back to the sVo!”
There is a cheap pop for the mention of the hometown from the crowd.
Jon Page – “Now my co-owner Jimmy Moretti cannot be here in attendance tonight, however I wanted to be the one to come out here and show you just what Mike B, Johnny All Star, High Flyer and Joseph Peyton will be fighting for the right to win!”
Page once again lifts the trophy into the air.
Jon Page – “The Victory Cup is aptly named, because not only will the winner of the trophy go down in the record books of the sVo, there victory in the tournament will also set them down in the history books of wrestling all over the globe as the first man to hold the sVo World Championship belt!”
Jon Page pauses for a few seconds as he looks at the trophy in his hand.
Jon Page – “The sVo is all about having the ability to rise to the top and show off your talents against the best in the world by winning belts like the World Championship and tournaments like the Victory Cup, and tonight we will go one step closer to finding out who the best man currently is on the sVo roster!”
The sVo heads to a commercial break as Jon Page holds the Victory Cup aloft and the camera zooms in on the blank nameplate on the front of it. Just which name from Peyton, All Star, Best or High Flyer will be the first to be attached to the trophy?
sVo HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Kid X vs. Santos Rockwell vs. Ehsan Aariz
The first match of sVo Showdown #2 gets underway as all three competitors in the match eyeball each other across the ring.

CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES!
Backstage, there is a large ruckus coming from behind a closed door. It has a star on it, and reads “Mike Best” in large, black letters. There is obviously some kind of party going on behind the door, as sVo interviewer Candi Cross knocks on it loudly. The door swings open and a jovial looking Michael Best appears, staring back at her with a grin on his face. In the background, women in skimpy clothing can be seen drinking champagne and talking to one another, while a few guys we’ve never seen before look on and enjoy a couple of beers.
Mike Best: *ahem* How may I help you, Ms. Cross?
Candi Cross: Well, uhm, Mike, I guess we’re all just wondering what you’re doing in there.
Mike Best: What am I doing? WHAT AM I DOING? Candi, I’m celebrating! I’m celebrating with my friends my victory over High Flyer tonight, that’s what I’m doing! I’m one step closer to the Victory Cup!
Candi looks at him, confused.
Candi Cross: Uh, Mike? You haven’t even wrestled him yet.
Mike: Oh I know. But tonight, the beating I’m gonna give him will be so bad, I need to start celebrating it NOW. This message has been brought to you by The Mike Effect, your once and future champion.
He begins to close the door, but Candi stops him.
Candi: Who in the hell are you TALKING to when you say that?
Mike Best: What? “This message has been brought to you by…. yada yada yada?” Oh, just my adoring public, Candi. But you know how that is. Now if you’ll excuse me…
He slams the door this time, locking it before Candi has a chance to continue. She shrugs her shoulders, turning and walking away, as the camera cuts back to the action.

Spring Heeled Jack vs. Burraca
Burraca and Spring Heeled Jack circle each other as the referee calls for the bell to be rung and the match for the sVo International Championship belt to get underway.

Burraca is able to counter by rolling Jack over and hitting him with some punches of his own, before rising back up to his feet and stomping down on the midsection of Jack.

Jack pulls Burraca up to his feet and sends him to the corner of the ring. Jack then runs at Burraca in the corner, but as he does Burraca jumps out of the way and Jack hits his shoulder into the ring post!

We have a new International Champion, and it is Burraca that picks up the three count and the belt!
RESULT: Burraca def. Spring Heeled Jack via pinfall
Showdown heads backstage where a dejected looking Kid X is packing up his belonging after losing in his triple threat match tonight for the sVo Hardcore Championship belt, a belt which he last week tried to steal. Kid X turns to leave his locker room, however as he does the door bursts open and in walks the sVo general manager Paige!
Paige – “Kid X, not a very impressive performance tonight….. Maybe you should give up fighting after all and turn to a life of crime.”
Kid X stumbles over his words as he looks at Paige.
Kid X – “Urmm, I don’t know what your talking about.”
Paige – “How about the fact that you broke into my office last week and STOLE the Hardcore Championship belt from my desk, that sounds like a sackable offence if ever I heard one!”
Kid X starts to look worried.
Kid X – “Come on Paige, there’s no need to talk like that, I am sure we could work something out.”
Paige – “Yeah there is defiantly something that we can do, next week you will have a match that will most defiantly be a ‘must win’ match for you. If you win, then we can forget about the whole thing, but if you lose, that’s you gone from the sVo! I would get training if I was you!”
Paige exits the room leaving behind Kid X, who is looking worried by just who Paige will have in store for him next week.
