sVo Showdown Episode #065
12th December 2010
Goodfellas Casino Arena, Las Vegas Nevada
“Natural High” by The Union Underground hits the sound system as the sVo Showdown entrance video hits the screens of TV’s all over the world! The video featuring the likes of sVo Champion Roscoe Shame, Night, Bobby Dean and Grimnir shows some of the best action to have ever taken place on the flagship show of the Sanctioned Violence Organization.
As the video comes to an end, the camera cuts to the arena and pans around the sold out crowd as pyro’s shoot up from the entrance stage whilst the theme music continues to blast out over the sound system. The camera picks out several signs in the crowd as the fireworks continue to explode around the ringside area.
The camera then pans across to the entrance stage, where a video recap of last weeks action is shown on the giant Violence-Tron before tonight’s action gets under-way.
LAST WEEK ON SHOWDOWN #64sVo Boss Matt Anderson demanded that Nathan Paradine tell the world who the Masked Man Is…..
“Real Solution #9” by White Zombie begins to blast over the sound system as Matt Anderson appears at the top of the ramp to a tide of boos from the crowd in the Goodfellas Casino. He laughs and indicates for a troop of Company suits to follow him down the ramp, ordering them to circle the ring while he climbs to steel stairs. He calls for a mic and his music dies down as he motions for silence.
Matt Anderson: “All of you, shut up! Tonight is going to be a monutmentous occasion in the history of the Company. In just a few moments we will remove the thorn in our side known as the Masked Man and take a step towards eliminating all opposition to our plans. So, without further ado, I’d like to invite down to the ring… Nathan Paradine!”
“Sorry You’re Not A Winner” by Enter Shikari begins to play, the familiar techno beat giving way to screeching guitar as Nathan Paradine emerges from backstage, slowly walking down the ramp. The camera focuses on various signs around the arena such as “Sellout” and “We Support the sVo”, before focusing on several male fans jeering at the Australian Submission Machine. Paradine climbs into the ring and stares down Anderson as his music dies away.
Matt Anderson: “Thank you for joining me here, Nathan. Now, if you’ll be so kind as to call down your masked friend and we can get this over and done with, alright?”
Paradine slowly nods and raises the mic to speak, however there is a sudden uproar from ringside. Several fans part as the Masked Man approaches the ring from the crowd, hopping over the guardrail and shouldering past the security before climbing up onto the ring. He walks to the center of the ring, looking at both Paradine and Anderson before holding out his hand for the mic with Anderson grudgingly obliging.
Masked Man: “You know, I have been here ever since the sVo first began in 2007. I watched men like Mike Polowy, Psyko Stevo, Jay Wildman and Kerry Milano pass through this company before its eventual downfall at the end of 2008. I sat and watched it rise again like a phoenix from the ashes, and I witnessed firsthand the destruction of everything that I helped build thanks to the Company.”
The Masked Man turns to face Anderson, jabbing him in the chest with his finger.
Masked Man: “You’re nothing more than a puppet, Anderson. You’re not even half the man I was, and that’s saying something. You people have destroyed my life and for too long I have stood by in the shadows. Not anymore! Regardless of what happens tonight, I will join the fight against the Company. I have been thinking long and hard about the discussion I had with this man Nathan Paradine on Showdown two weeks ago and I have decided to finally fight for something I believe in; the destruction of the Company. I will go along with whatever decision Nathan makes tonight, because I believe that he knows what he is doing.”
Anderson snatches the mic away in fury.
Matt Anderson: “Shut the hell up! You can’t even reveal your true identity to the world. Why is that? Is it shame? Is it Peter Gimour hiding behind that mask? Paradine, I’m going to give you two minutes to get that mask off before I fire you, understand!? Make your choice now!”
The Masked Man turns to face Paradine, daring him to remove the mask. Chants echoe around the arena, ranging from “take it off!” to “you are fired!”. Paradine’s hands twitch as he contemplates his decision…
Matt Anderson: “Do it! Do it now damn you!”
Paradine turns away from the Masked Man, his face twitching. Anderson raises the mic, his face beet red.
Matt Anderson: “Nathan Paradine, you’re fi-“
Before he can finish, Paradine spins around and grabs the Masked Man, attempting to tug the mask off his face. The crowd explodes, however before Paradine can remove the mask “Travel Now Journey Infinitely” by Trinacria begins to play on the sound system. Paradine turns around in shock, while the crowd greets the sudden appearance of Grimnir with cheers. Grimnir raises a microphone and speaks, his voice betraying no emotion.
Grimnir: “Come one now, what kind of a display is this? We’re all adults, yet we have Anderson screaming like a spoiled child, Paradine scrabbling like an old woman to get that mask off and the Masked Man himself just… well… “taking it like a bitch”, to use a certain expression.”
Grimnir walks down to the head of the ramp, shaking his head.
Grimnir: “Of course, every single fan in this arena knows that there is only one true masked man here in the sVo… myself, of course.”
Grimnir taps his own mask, before feigning a melodramatic sigh.
Grimnir: “However, if you’ve been paying attention to sVo programming recently, you would’ve noticed that I’ve grown a little tired of the masked act. It’s so very boring listening to people talk about how they think they know who you are; which is why I have a proposition for you, Anderson. Next week, live on Showdown… we have a mask versus mask match. Everybody wins that way, you see! Paradine keeps his job and the fans find out the identity of either myself or the Masked Man. Can you see the ratings!?”
Anderson raises his eyebrow, looking apprehensive.
Matt Anderson: “How do I know you’re not just doing this to try and get Paradine off the hook?”
Grimnir: “You should know that I have no love for either Paradine or the Masked Man. I seek only to entertain the men and woman who pay to attend our shows with a proper spectacle, instead of this… whatever the hell it is you have happening right now.”
Anderson ponders the decision for a moment, before eventually sighing and nodding his head.
Matt Anderson: “Fine. Next week… Grimnir versus the Masked Man, with the loser being forced to reveal their identity. But if this is some kind of double cross… well, trust me. You’d better start job-hunting.”
Grimnir nods, and turns to look at the Masked Man as ‘Real Solution #9″ begins to play. Matt Anderson exits the ring and walks back up the ramp with the Company agents in tow, while Grimnir simply turns and leaves the ring with little fanfare as the show comes to an end, leaving Paradine and the Masked Man standing in the ring wondering just what will happen next week.
The scene opens up to the backstage area where we see “The Reflection” of Perfection himself, Cody Williams. He is decked out in his wrestling attire sitting on a metal folding chair while a sVo trainer finishes the last of Cody’s wrist tape. The trainer rips off the last piece and Cody opens and closes his hand several times.
Trainer: How’s that?
Cody Williams: It’s perfect, thanks!
Cody stands up and shakes the trainer’s hand before retrieving his belongings, a shirt which he throws over his shoulder and his trademark sunglasses that he places behind his head. He starts to make his way down the hallway, stretching his arms out and shaking everything out in an attempt to get his muscles loose and limber, while trying to keep them warm. He waves to a few production assistants and passer-byers in the hallway as he continues his walk.
Voice: Well, well, look at who we have here.
Cody turns his attention to the side with a look of wonder and confusion. He makes eye contact with someone who is out of sight, and a smirk fills his face. The view slowly begins to pan out and it is revealed to be Nathan Paradine standing there, his hands on his hips.
Cody Williams: Look what the wind brought in.
Cody extends his hand out to Nathan Paradine and the two shake hands.
Nathan Paradine: I’m looking forward to this little exhibition match that they have planned for us.
Cody Williams: So am I. All I know is that the fans in attendance and all over the world are in for a treat because you and I are about to put on a wrestling clinic like only we can.
Nathan Paradine: Damn right. You better come out there swinging and bring your “A” game because I’m going to be giving you everything I’ve got and then some.
Cody Williams: I wouldn’t expect anything less!!!
The two of them stare each other down, a friendly grin on the both of their faces. Nathan Paradine passes Cody Williams as the two of them continue going their separate ways. Cody continues down the hallway and stops right in front of his locker room door, staring at the name placard before entering.
Entering his home Colt Cooper was startled by Chris Wrestling who sat on a chair holding Colt’s International title like a baby in his arms. His fingers gently glide through the plated gold medal cracks as he sings a dreamfly stares at the title.
Colt::”What the hell are you doing in my home?”
Colt takes off his jacket and throws it on the bed. He snatches the International title out of Chris’s hand and throws it on the bed also. Grabbing Chris by his collar he lunges him from the chair bracing him on the wall lifting him up.
Chris::”Calm down. I’m just here to give you a little warning.”
Chris smiles and taps Colt on the top of his head. Colt’s a bit rejective at first, but he lets him go, and Chris falls to his knees. He stands and fixes his clothes up.
Chris::”See that title right there? It’s going to be mines. There is nothing you can say or do that’s going to stop me from taking it from you either. I’m tired of seeing you strutting around here thinking you’re some big dog. You aint nothing Colt Cooper. If you’re so good how come you haven’t won a WOM yet. You know why? Because you SUCK.”
Colt who is sitting on the edge of the bed with his arms folded just laughs.
Colt::”I’m nothing? You can’t compare to what I’ve been doing for the SvO. You’re lucky you even got a International title shot. Oh, I almost forgot….you bought it.”
Chris Wrestling looks as if he’s confused.
Chris::”What does that have to do with anything?”
Colt::”See…if you were like me then you wouldn’t have to pay for a shot at a title. All you would do is collect your pay, let it build, and fight for your shot at a title. But then theirs guys like you who feel they so desperately need a shot. They need a title. When I on the other hand just wait until they feel I’m ready for a shot at that specific title. If anything. You SUCK.”
Grimacing Chris Wrestling looks like he’s ready to explode. Colt stands and becomes face to face with him. He smirks and folds his arms at the boiling Chris Wrestling.
Chris::”I’ll show you who sucks.”
Chris Wrestling turns and begins his way exiting Colt’s home.
Colt::”Don’t get your hopes to high.”
Colt gives the camera a wink and closes the door so he can get ready for his match that’s coming up next.
“Last Resort” plays as Canadian Crippler comes out completely focused on the ring. He enters the ring and awaits the bell.
“Last Resort” hits the sound system and on the big screen we see highlights of Canadian Perfect Chris Wrestling. Then Canadian Perfect Chris Wrestling comes out with a huge smirk on his face, trying to prevent the crowd from touching him.
The lights dim out quickly and suddenly, and the cacophany of chatter from the audience falls to silence. The opening bars of ‘Forsaken’ by Skillet hits out over the PA System and a single jet of Golden pyro erupts from the stage, the light from it illuminating a lone, solitary, dark figure. Ethan Rider is dressed in a long trench coat and his usual ring trunks, black with a tint of metallic silver. ‘Rider’ is written in gold lettering on the cuffs of the coat and the right leg of the trunks. Ethan gives a small smirk and straightens up, the lights slightly returning so he is visible. He walks to the ring, only slightly acknowledging the audience with the occasional nod. When he reaches the ringside area, he stands still, staring at the ring as two officials come forward and carefully remove the coat, producing a series of wolf-whistles from the females as he exposes his well defined, ‘Sexy’ abdomen and pectoral. He bounces on the spot a bit, warming up for the match, before sliding into the ring, just after a single flash of golden pyro shoots just millimetres over his shoulder. Bouncing off the ropes and raising two fingers up in front of him, giving another small smirk as the lights return.
‘Ladies and Gentlemen’ by Saliva hits the sound system and there are boos all around for Colt Cooper as his entrance video hits the sVo-Tron. After waiting a few seconds, Colt Cooper appears on the ramp with his normal cocky smile. He positions both of his arms out, tapping his chest taunting the crowd. A spectrum of black and blue strobe lights fill up the arena followed by a down pour of confetti. Colt struts his way to the ring extending his hands to some of his fans, and gives the middle finger to the fans of sVo who don’t like him.
There are boos in the arena as ‘JVD’ flashes up on the giant screen and the arena is basked in a pink glow. “All My Life” by Foo Fighters blares out as James Von Drake walks out, with his wife Lucy Von Drake as always by his side. JVD signals to the crowd before walking down to the ring and sliding in. JVD holds his arms in the air in the middle of the ring as Lucy Von Drake stands outside the ring clapping on her husband.
With all six men in the ring, this one is ready to get underway where the only way to win will be for one team to put a member of the opposite team through a table! Before the bell can even be rung for the match to begin, the Company team of Rider, Von Drake and Cooper quickly jump forward and knock down Wrestling, Crippler and Rosario from behind! The Company stomp down on the members of the Canadian Connection as the crowd boo loudly for the sneak attack.
Von Drake pulls Rosario up to his feet and sends him into the ropes, before taking him down to the mat with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker as he bounces back into the middle of the ring. Colt Cooper slams Crippler head first into the turnbuckle, before dropping him down to the mat with a spinning heel kick as he stumbles back out of the corner. Meanwhile Ethan Rider hits some big right hands on Chris Wrestling, before Wrestling grabs the arm of Rider and takes him down to the mat with an arm drag takedown. Chris Wrestling begins to stomp away on the arm of Ethan Rider, until he is nailed in the back of the head by Colt Cooper.
Colt Cooper pulls Chris Wrestling back into the middle of the ring, but Chris Wrestling twists the arm of Colt Cooper into a wrist lock, before taking him down to the mat with a side headlock takedown. With Colt Cooper down on the mat Chris Wrestling begins to lay into his opponent for Seasons Beatings next week with big right hands. On the other side of the ring, JVD brings Rey Rosario up to his feet, before sending him into the corner of the ring. JVD then begins to stomp away on Rosario with big kicks. Crippler however grabs hold of JVD from behind and takes him down to the mat with a German suplex!
With the Canadian Connection standing dominant in the ring, Rider, JVD and Colt Cooper quickly roll out of the ring to regroup. The fans boo loudly the actions of the Company until the Canadian Connection roll outside themselves and meet them with big right hands! Rosario knocks down Colt Cooper, whilst Crippler sends Ethan Rider into the turnbuckle. Chris Wrestling nails JVD with a knee to the midsection, before dropping him with a DDT on the unprotected floor!
With the Company down on the outside of the ring, the fans cheer as the Canadian Connection pull up the ring apron, and Crippler and Rosario pull out a table! Chris Wrestling looks to be directing things as the sVo Tag Team Champions slide the table into the ring, before rolling in to set the table up.
Rosario and Crippler set the table up in the middle of the ring, but as they do Colt Cooper nails Chris Wrestling with a low blow on the outside of the ring! The fans boo loudly as Chris Wrestling drops to his knees in pain, and Colt Cooper catches him with a Colt of Conduct on the outside of the ring! Ethan Rider and James Von Drake roll into the ring, but as they do Rey Rosario knocks them down with a double clothesline!
The fans cheer the move from Rosario, as Colt Cooper stomps away on Chris Wrestling on the outside of the ring. With Rider and Von Drake down on the outside of the ring, the Tag Team Champions pulls Von Drake up to a standing position before shooting him into the ropes! The fans cheer as Rosario and Crippler knock JVD down to the mat with a double shoulder block, before turning their attention back towards Ethan Rider!
Crippler pulls Rider up to a standing position, before setting him up in a powerbomb position! Crippler and Rosario pull Rider up as if they are going to hit him with a double team power bomb through the table! The fans pop, but before they can throw Rider through the table, James Von Drake saves his partner with a punch to the back of Cripplers head!
Crippler drops Ethan Rider down as Rosario rushes across and lays into JVD with some big right hands. JVD and Rosario brawl in the corner of the ring, but as they do Ethan Rider spins Crippler around! The fans give a mixed reaction as Ethan Rider sends Crippler crashing through the table with the ‘Blade Ridden’! The referee quickly calls for the bell to be rung as Crippler lays motionless in the wreckage of the table after the massive move from Ethan Rider. Colt Cooper rolls into the ring as Rosario is tossed over the top rope by JVD. The Company celebrate in the middle of the ring over the broken body of the Crippler, as the fans boo loudly for the group.
Is there anyone in the sVo that can put an end to the domination of the Company?
OUTCOME: The Company defeats Canadian Connection via Table
The official sponsor of Beautiful Bobby Dean
Please Drink Irresponsibly
The cameras are in the locker room of the still unnamed stable of Roscoe Shame, Bobby Dean and Joseph Equinox, along with Jeremiah Sloan. The four men are at it once again, spitting out names left and right. Bobby Dean offering any name that includes the term “Beautiful” in the title, while Roscoe and Joey are showing signs of annoyance at the self centered “Beautiful” One.
Roscoe Shame: Enough Bobby! Geez! We’re not going to be the “Beautiful Biches” or the “Beautiful Bastards” or the “Beauty Marks” or the “Beautiful Whatevers!” Just leave it!
Bobby sits in his chair and crosses his arms in dramatic fashion. Like a four year old on the verge of a massive temper tantrum, but he is interrupted as Sloan’s cell phone begins to ring. Fishing the phone out of his pocket he takes a peek at the Caller ID and smiles.
Sloan: About freaking time!
Pushing a button he rises to his feet and begins to pace the locker room, showing his anticipation at this expected and most desired phone call.
Sloan: Hey buddy, long time… Yeah I got a deal of a life time for ya… I’ve got a sweet spot lined up for you over here in the sVo with a few friends of mine. We’re talking, World Champion, former Tag Team, International, Las Vegas Champion, and a guy that is a future champion in the making. You’d be joining the best of the best… Yeah… No… Nah, we haven’t come up with a name just yet but we’re getting there… Alright, yeah man, think about it and let me know what you want to do… Later.
Closing the phone, three pairs of eyes are all on Sloan. The pouting Bobby Dean leaning forward in his seat anticipation stamped on all of their faces as Sloan casually strolls over to his chair and sits back down. Look at the other three he smiles.
Sloan: He’s going to think about it some and get back to me.
Bobby Dean: No shit, we heard that!
Shame: Jay, who is this guy!?
Sloan: Alright, I’ll tell you, but you can’t say nothing to no one!
Motioning for all of them to scoot in, closer, closer, closer, all three turn their ear towards Sloan as he whispers the name. Three pairs of eyes go wide in surprise. All three men sit back in their chair, Roscoe with a smile on his face, Equinox a smile on his face, Bobby Dean a grimace on his.
Bobby Dean: Anybody but him Jay! No…
The three men laugh at Bobby’s forlorn look as Bobby goes back to crossing his arms and pouting like a four year old.
Now tell me how you love it
You know you at the top when only heaven’s right above it
‘Cause we onnnn
Karma Jones embraces the music and the crowd filled with boos and scepticism as he makes his way to the ring from the ramp. As Karma is poised on the top turnbuckle the music fades out and the lights come on.

The Very Best in Classic Wrestling Action
Candi Cross: I’m standing here outside of the TapOut Champions’ locker room and I’m about to get a word with Samuel Amos..
Candi knocks on the locker room door. Samuel Amos answers.
Candi Cross: Hello, Sam! I’m here because I wanted to hear-
Amos snatches the microphone from Candi’s hand. The crowd boos.
Samuel Amos: First of all, I’m tired of telling you people that it’s Samuel.. no no.. it’s Mister Amos to you! Do you understand that..?
Candi nods her head.
Samuel Amos: Good! Now.. let me show you something. Samuel Amos is many things.. I bet you knew that already. Samuel Amos is talented, he’s deadly.. he’s Infamous! ..but I wanted to show you something that you didn’t know about Samuel Amos. Samuel Amos is magical. Huh? You don’t believe me? You don’t believe that Samuel Amos is magical?
Sam places the microphone up to Candi’s lips.
Candi Cross: I never said..
Samuel Amos: Shut UP!
The crowd boos.
Samuel Amos: Shut up, woman. I AM magical because I’m going to tell you what you were thinking. I’m going to tell Candi Cross what she wanted to ask me.. without even knowing myself! Isn’t that special? Here goes..
Sam places his fingertips on his forehead, and pretends to be thinking deeply.
Samuel Amos: You wanted to ask.. it’s coming in clearly.. you wanted to ask what decision I was going to make.. if I was going to join the Company or tell the Company to buzz off! Isn’t that true..? Well.. isn’t it?
Candi doesn’t look too impressed.
Candi Cross: Well, actually.. that is what I was going to ask..
Samuel Amos: I KNEW IT!! I knew that you wanted to know what I have decided and my magical powers suggest that you’re not the only one. I bet the entire world wishes that they have my powers.. wishes that they KNEW what Samuel Amos was going to choose! But that is something that only I know!! Now if you’ll excuse me..
Samuel Amos hands the microphone back to Candi and she steps out of the way. Just as Sam is about to leave.. he is surrounded by the Company in it’s entirety. Cooper, Thompson, Rider, The Von Drakes, Clarissa English, Serenity and Matt Anderson himself. Sam looks a little bit distressed as all directions are blocked by a member of the company and Matt Anderson is standing directly in front of him. Candi holds the microphone up to Matt Anderson.
Matt Anderson: Well Amos, I’m waiting. What is your choice?
Sam looks a little bit worried as he looks over at Rider, then Cooper, then James Von Drake and then Howard Thompson.
Samuel Amos: You know what Anderson? You’re a funny man. The kind of funny that no one really laughs at, but everyone thinks is sad and pathetic. You’ve been trying to sabotage me since the Submission Elimination Challenge.. and that’s no lie. You’ve been trying to make my life miserable.. quite unsuccessful at that.
Matt Anderson: ..so what you’re saying is..
Amos cuts Anderson off, which seems to make Anderson very angry.
Samuel Amos: What I’m saying is this. You realize that you need me.. because apparently these clowns aren’t enough for you.
Ethan Rider lunges at Amos, but Colt Cooper holds him back, as their orders were to wait for Anderson’s instructions first.
Samuel Amos: You’re not asking me to JOIN the company.. you’re asking me to LEAD the company. You know how I know that..? Because I’m..
Matt Anderson: You listen here AMOS!! You have a choice!! Friend.. or Foe?!
The group move in on the TapOut Champion.
Samuel Amos: I.. uhh.. I .. just.. I need more time!
The crowd boos.
Samuel Amos: This decision.. this is a big decision! This is a career changer! You can’t expect me to make this kind of decision in just one week’s time!
“N I G H T M A R E”
The curtains part and a man in red trunks with a black streak down the side and a black mask cut away at the top to reveal a freshly shaved head of hair. He half-grins/half-sneers at the jeering audience surrounding him and wastes little time in stalking down the entrance ramp before quickly sliding under the bottom rope and into the ring. He stands, jawing off at various members of the crowd as he awaits the start of the match.
“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 rematch from last week is quickly underway as Nightmare dives forward and grabs hold of The Teacher in a front face lock. Nightmare begins to pull The Teacher backwards, however Teacher reverses into a waist lock onto the monster Nightmare, before nailing him with some clubbing blows to the back of the head. Nightmare staggers forward, only to get taken down with a single leg takedown by Teacher. Teacher lays into Nightmare with some big punches, until Nightmare grabs the arm of Teacher and rolls him through into a arm bar submission hold. Nightmare tries to lock the move in, however The Teacher manages to roll out and up to his feet to free himself.
Nightmare runs at The Teacher and takes him down with a double leg takedown, before laying into him with some big mounted punches. The Teacher tries to roll away, however Nightmare grabs hold of him in with a side head lock and tries to squeeze the life out of his opponent. The Teacher tries to roll out of the hold, however Nightmare keeps it locked in to wear down his opponent, before pulling him to his feet. The Teacher suddenly finds his way back to the mat as Nightmare slams him down with a belly to back suplex.
Nightmare rises up to his feet and the fans boo loudly as The Teacher pulls himself up in the corner. Nightmare runs at Teacher in the corner, and buries his knee in the face of his opponent. The fans boo the move from the man who drove his brother Night out of the sVo, as he goes to work on Teacher with some big stomps in the corner.
The Teacher slowly rises up to his feet, but Nightmare grabs hold of him before tossing him across the ring with a release suplex before hooking the leg of the Teacher to make the cover.
It looked like Nightmare was going to pick up the three count right there, however The Teacher manages to get a shoulder up off of the mat before the three can be counted! Nightmare rolls up to his feet and lays into Nightmare with some big kicks to show his frustration at not getting the three count there.
The Teacher slowly gets up to his feet, and Nightmare grabs him by the arm and throws him hard into the ring ropes.

The fans boo loudly as Nightmare rolls into the ring with the steel chair and begins to stalk The Teacher as he tries to get to his feet. However as Nightmare measures up Teacher for a chair shot to the back of the head, the fans cheer as ‘The Unlikely Hero’ Alex Brooks sprints down the entrance ramp!

Tap, Tap, Tap!
The fans boo loudly for Nightmare’s submission finishing move, but The Teacher has no choice but to tap out before he passes out. Nightmare keeps the submission hold locked on for a few seconds longer than needed, before finally releasing The Teacher and rising up to his feet in victory. The referee tries to raise Nightmare’s hand in victory, but the monster scares him off before looking out at the crowd who are still booing him. Can anyone stop the monster Nightmare, and just what will he do to Alex Brooks for repeatedly getting involved in his business?
OUTCOME: Nightmare defeats The Teacher via submission
BRINGING THE FIGHTIn spite of his victory, Nightmare seems outraged by Brooks’ interference and bypasses his celebration to leap out of the ring towards the newcomer, tackling him to the ground and laying into him with pummeling left and right hands. Brooks does his best to cover up but the experienced grappler Nightmare keeps him pinned down.
Not yet content, Nightmare stands, grabbing a nearby chair and folding it before laying it out on the ground.

BBD comes out to a chorus of boos in his baby blue Ric Flair-esque robe that is covered in sparkling diamonds. He struts his way down the entrance ramp refusing to touch the out stretched hands of fans at ringside. Walking up the steel steps, he wipes his feet off before stepping into the ring. Walking over to his corner he proceeds to remove his robe and warm up for the upcoming match.
With both men in the ring and ready to get the match underway, the referee calls for the bell to be rung and this to get started.

Its all over, and thanks to some blatant cheating from Bobby Dean, he picks up the victory over the Unlikely Hero Alex Brooks! Bobby Dean quickly slides out of the ring and backs up the entrance ramp with his hands in the air in victory!

OUTCOME: Bobby Dean defeats Alex Brooks via pinfall
NOT THIS TIMEAlex Brooks is making his way backstage after his tough match at Beautiful Bobby Dean, when his nemesis of late, Nightmare, makes his way out from the backstage area.
sVo’s Unlikely Hero starts walking backwards down the arena walkway in an effort to avoid the monster stalking him.
Brooks takes a quick glance over his shoulder and realises that soon he will run out of room. Nightmare knows this too, and a broad sadistic smile crosses the monster’s face.
Brooks eventually finds himself pinned against the apron of the ring. Nightmare closes in, just as Nightmare lunges to grab Brooks around the throat, he ducks under his arm and sprints to the top of the ramp. When he gets to the top of the ramp, Brooks turns back to Nightmare, whose face is wearing a scowl, and waves his finger to the cheers of the crowd.
Nightmare stands there and motions for Brooks to come back down the ramp and fight him, but Brooks waves goodbye and exits through the curtains backstage, leaving a furious Nightmare foaming at the mouth.

Many will enter, only one will survive
“Talkin 2 Myself” by Eminem begins to play. Smoke begins to fill the stage as the lights dim to near darkness. A beam of bright white light shines from the stage. As the light begins to dim, Joseph Equinox can be seen standing at the top of the stage with smoke foating all around him. Equinox moves to the top of the ramp and stops before he flails his arms out to the side of him and a pyro lightning bolt fires down and strikes him. The spotlights loom over where Equinox was standing but he is no longer there. All of a sudden 4 more lighting bolts crash down on each corner of the ring and the arena lights change to a dark blue.

All the Latest News and Rumours from the Wrestling World
CHALLENGE ACCEPTEDBackstage Tamara Boyd is found, microphone in hand standing in front of a black sVo backdrop. Standing next to her is the still weary and raging Nightmare.
Tamara Boyd: “I’m here with Nightmare who not long ago defeated The Teacher in singles action. Nightmare, during the match clearly you had ill-intentions on your mind however your efforts were…”
Nightmare: “… Tamara, we all saw what happened. That little pissant Alex Brooks had the fucking nerve to stick his nose in my business and somehow managed to DDT me onto a steel chair.”
He seethes with anger, breathing heavily from a mixture of his earlier efforts from the match and subsequent altercation and fury.
Nightmare: “Brooks, clearly you are too stupid to see what should be obvious to you. You are nothing compared to me. A fresh-faced teenaged rookie gunning after the seasoned ring warrior you see before you… it’s inevitable what will happen and as such, I felt it’d be a waste of time granting you a match. But your lucky shot tonight paired with your continued gnawing presence is beyond fucking annoying. And since Matt Anderson is apparently lacking in the seniority to grant me what I truly deserve at Season’s Beatings… I accept your challenge for Season’s Beatings – looks like you’re getting what you wanted for Christmas, but next week, I’ll bet you’ll be wishing you asked for a Kinect for your X-Box or some shit… fucking kids.”
Outburst over, Nightmare storms off, vanishing quickly into the maze of corridors comprising the backstage area and leaving Tamara lost for words.
The house lights slowly dim, synched to the sound of a THX surround sound test causing the jam packed audience of the Goodfellas Arena to erupt. The sounds of “Head Like A Hole” (Clay Remix) by Nine Inch Nails blares on the arena’s sound system as gold lights wander around the arena. A strobe light flickers at the top of the entranceway while the entrance begins to fog up. Cody Williams can be seen rising up from the top of the ramp by way of lift. Once the lift comes to a halt he throws his arms up into the air to an eruption of pyrotechnics, followed by fireworks raining down ontop of him from above the stage.Bow down before the one you serve
You’re going to get what you deserve
Bow down before the one you serve
You’re going to get what you deserve
He makes his way down the entrance ramp, pounding his chest and pointing out to the crowd as they continue to drown the stadium with cheers. He slides into the ring and rushes to the nearest corner and stands on the second turnbuckle leaning over, repeatedly pounding his chest and raising his arms in the air. He hops off and heads over to the opposite corner and does the same, taking off his “CCXX: Second Coming” shirt and throwing it into the crowd.
The referee points to Cody Williams who is standing in his corner, bouning up and down and asks if he is ready to go, Cody nods his head. He then turns his attention to Nathan Paradine who is shaking out his arms and legs and asks him the same and he nods his head as well.
And here we go, Nathan Paradine and Cody Williams circle each other around the ring and pause dead center of the squared circle. They extend their arms out towards one another and begin this match up with a respectful handshake. It has been over two years since these two last stepped foot into the ring against each other and tonight we get to see them go at it once more at the Goodfellas Arena.
Cody Williams moves in first and initiates a collar and elbow tie up with Nathan Paradine. Cody Williams digs his rear foot deep into the canvas for leverage and begins to power Paradine backwards before pushing him off several steps backwards. Nathan Paradine stares across the ring to Cody Williams who stares back at him and dusts his shoulder off. The two of them steps towards each other and engage in another collar and elbow tie up, with this time Nathan Paradine getting the upper hand. Paradine pushes Cody Williams sending him backwards onto the mat. Cody gets back up to a kneeling position and looks up at Paradine who dusts his shoulder off as well. Williams and Paradine stare at each other and trade smirks, knowing that this will be a competitive bout. Cody and Paradine begin to circle each other once again and begin to clap their hands in order to get the crowd to rally behind them.
Paradine and Williams come to a halt and nod their heads, the two of them lunge forward and tie up in another collar and elbow tie up. Paradine gets the best of Cody and locks in a wrist lock and Cody feels immediately. Nathan Paradine ducks under and wrenches Cody’s arm into a twisting arm bar. Cody does a forward roll and rocks back onto his back and kips up, he then reverses the leverage and applies a wrist lock of his own. Paradine pulls Cody in and applies a headlock before taking him and down, still keeping the headlock intact. Cody wraps his legs around the head of Paradine with a leg scissors to escape the head lock but Paradine kicks out of it and the two of them stand back onto their feet.
The two of them smile at each other and nod their heads in approval. They walk towards the center of the ring and lock up again, Williams this time immediately applying a headlock on Paradine. Paradine walks Cody backwards and pushes him against the ropes before pushing him off, sending him across the ring. Cody comes bouncing off of the ropes and hits Paradine with a shoulder block that sends him to the mat. Cody bounces off of the ropes and Paradine drops down prompting Cody to jump over him. Cody comes bouncing off of the ropes and Paradine leapfrogs up over him. Paradine bounces off of the ropes this time and Cody leap frogs over him. He turns around and walks into a hard boot right to the solar plexus by Nathan Paradine. Paradine whips Cody into the corner but he reverses it and sends Paradine running instead. Cody chases after Paradine and Paradine counters by tipping-up and over the head of Cody. Cody runs into the corner and leaps up onto the top rope and moonsaults over the head of Paradine. Paradine ducks under and jumps onto the second rope and comes flying off with a crossbody block onto Cody Williams. Paradine walks towards Cody but he sweeps his leg, dropping him to the mat. Cody goes for a front flip legdrop but Paradine evades the attempt. The two of them scramble to their feet and stare at each other to the satisfaction of the crowd. Paradine points at Cody and smirks while Cody claps his hands.
LET’S GO CODY!!!
LET’S GO NATHAN!!!
LET’S GO CODY!!!
LET’S GO NATHAN!!!
Cody and Nathan begin to circle each other once again, trying to size the other one up before deciding their next action. Cody and Nathan reach out towards each other and tease at a test of strength. They clasp one of their hands and before they can clasp their other hands they are dumfounded by the sounds of boos from the crowd. They turn around and see Las Vegas Champion James Von Drake making his way down to the ring with his championship belt in tow. JVD makes his way to ringside and looks into the ring and motions for them to continue.
Paradine and Williams reach out for another attempt at a test of strength and clasp hands, right before they test their strength Paradine breaks it up with a kick to the midsection. He pushes Cody up by the chin and hits him with a stiff forearm to the side of the head that dazes Cody. Cody musters up some strength and hits Paradine with a hard European uppercut that sends him reeling. Paradine comes back with two forearm shots to the side of the head and takes a step back before hitting Cody with a Muay Thai kick to the head that makes a sick slapping sound that echoes throughout the arena. Cody, visibly dazed, shakes his head and hits Paradine with a hard knife edge chop and a European uppercut. Paradine shakes it off and hits a discus elbow that sends Cody into the ropes. Cody bounces off and hits a running European uppercut that sends Paradine into the ropes. Paradine bounces off and hits a Yakuza Kick to the side of Cody’s head. Cody stumbles backwards and grabs his jaw. He bounces off of the ropes and hits Paradine with a Yakuza kick of his own. The two of them bounce off of the ropes and with the same mindset go for dueling Yakuza kicks that send both competitors down hard to the mat.
THIS IS AWESOME!!!
CLAP, CLAP, CLAP CLAP CLAP!!!
THIS IS AWESOME!!!
CLAP, CLAP, CLAP CLAP CLAP!!!
Both men slowly get onto their feet, using the ring ropes for assistance to find their vertical base. Paradine gets up onto his feet first and awaits Cody Williams to get back into a standing position. Cody finally gets back up onto his feet and Paradine runs towards the ropes, as his momentum builds up from the spring action of the ropes, James Von Drake grabs his ankle and trips him, causing him to land face first onto the mat. JVD immediately turns around and starts to laugh, much to the dismay and dislike of the Goodfellas Arena crowd. He starts to taunt the crowd and Paradine will have none of it and grabs JVD by the hair, dragging him onto the ring apron. Cody makes his way towards the two of them and assists Paradine, flipping JVD into the ring.
The referee calls for the bell and deems this a no contest due to outside interference. JVD sits up and holds his hands out, pleading with Cody and Paradine. JVD makes a run for it but Paradine and Cody grab hold of each of his legs and drag him to the center of the ring. They drag him onto his feet and Paradine sets him up for the PARAPLEX!!! Out of nowhere Karma Jones storms to the ring with a metal folding chair in hand and hits Cody across the back, sending him toppling to the ring canvas. Paradine lets go of JVD and turns around right into a chair shot to the gut, followed by a chair shot to the back. Karma raises the chair high into the air and lets out a roar. He turns around and gets a boot to the midsection by JVD, causing him to drop the chair. JVD places the chair into position on the mat and places Karma’s head inbetween his legs. He lifts him up and locks in the cradle before dropping him head first onto the steel folding chair with the DOLLAR DROP!!!
JVD hops onto his feet, breathing heavily as he stares at the aftermath in the ring. He kneels down to grab his Las Vegas championship and rolls out of the ring, continuing to look into the ring at his fallen adversaries. He begins to makes his way towards the ramp way, clutching his championship belt close to him.
Las Vegas Champion James Von Drake continues to make his way up the rampway, clutching to his championship belt. Karma Jones and Nathan Paradine start to show signs of life while Cody crawls to the nearest corner and demands a microphone. The ring announcer hands him one and Cody, who is slumped against the bottom turnbuckle raises it to his mouth.
Cody Williams: Hey.. HEY!!
JVD turns around and stares back into the ring, pointing to his chest.
Cody Williams: Yeah, I’m talking to you. When I first signed my contract for the sVo, I came here for one thing, and one thing only. And that is for the World Heavyweight Championship. I came back during Roll the Dice and made my intentions known loud and clear that I was coming after the very championship that eluded me during my first run here.
JVD, now a microphone in hand, throws his arms into the air and rolls his eyes.
James Von Drake: So what? That has nothing to do with me!!!
Cody Williams: Oh, it has everything to do with you. Because you see, when I stated my intentions and my motivtion for returning to the sVo Anderson basically told me that I needed to prove myself to him and to everyone else that I was still a big time player. He wanted me to show that I was deserving of the title shot that I requested, and that the only way to do that was to start from the bottom up and earn it. Remember what happened later that night?
James Von Drake: Yeah I remember, you attacked me from behind!
Cody Williams: Yeah, you’re right.. I did attack you, but not without reason. You see after I was told that I would have to start from the bottom up and work my way up to main event status I made a phone call and called my lawyer to discuss my course of action, my contractual obligations. And he pointed out something that was of interest to me. In my contract it states that I am promised a Championship match.
JVD’s eyebrow starts to raise slowly and he begins to intently listen to what Cody Williams is saying.
Cody Williams: You see, your Las Vegas Championship match at Season’s Beatings will be against the two people who earned that shot and became co-contenders for your belt.. Nathan Paradine and Karma Jones… And MYSELF, “The Reflection of Perfection” Cody Williams!!!
JVD starts to throw a fit and the entire crowd in attendance at the Goodfellas Arena erupts into cheers immediately after the announcement of Cody Williams.
James Von Drake: WHAT? WHAT? NO! NO! You can’t do that!
Cody Williams: Yes.. I can. I am using the championship match that was promised to me in writing and am challenging you for your Las Vegas Championship! See you next week, punk!
JVD shakes his head and starts to walk back up the ramp, not taking his eyes off of Cody Williams who is now standing in the ring, leaning over the top rope. JVD stops and the top of the ramp and grasps his championship belt and looks at it. Cody points towards his direction and makes a motion towards his waist, signifying that he is coming after it. Nathan Paradine finds himself outside of the ring, leaning against the ring apron, staring back into the ring at Cody who looks at him and shrugs. Karma Jones starts to pull himself together and has a look of disgust and anger on his face. Cody rolls out of the ring and throws his arms into the air to the roar of the crowd and makes his way back up the ramp, slapping a few fans hands on the way back.
ONE SIDED AFFAIR
Just as the last match finishes up and everyone clears the ring… “Money” by Pink Floyd begins playing. The fans boo as Howard “The Bank” Thompson steps out from the backstage area locker room and stands in front of a camera. The crowd takes a glimpse on the titantron while Thompson music fades in the background and begins to speak aloud.
Howard Thompson: “So now that it has come to my attention…”
The Bank looks to his side and then to the other.
Howard Thompson: “Come to my attention that I will be competing in my first match back with that no good piece of trash, Joseph Equinox. Well I’ve been given the right to pick the stipulation of this match.”
He pauses, takes a moment to himself and then continues…
Howard Thompson: “Now I’ve been thinking about it for the whole week and I’ve gotta say… whether or not you think you stand a chance, you’re a fool. Why? Because in the end of it all, I will have the last laugh. I always do, Joey boy…”
Thompson smirks and then cracks a laugh.
Howard Thompson: “That’s why I’ve decided to make Serenity the special guest referee…”
Howie has a conniving smile upon his face like he is up to something, meanwhile the audience boo’s even louder.
Howard Thompson: “You see… you may try to stop my sVo return before it even gets started, but what you need to understand is that I am back to stay… and come Season’s Beatings, I will walk through you and move forward!”
With that being said, Howie takes the mic patch on him and tosses it down to the hallway floor. From there he heads back into his locker room, making sure to keep a close eye on the rest of tonight’s show.
DEMANDS OF A MOCKINGJAY
The camera shot fades out to Matt Andersons office. Matt is sat at his desk, his feet up as he twiddles a pen between his thumb and finger, his trademark shades perched casually on the tip of his nose. Suddenly, the door swings open, and the shadows of two burly Company agents fall into the camera shot, hauling Ethan Rider into the room and throwing him to his knees.
Matt: “Ahh, Ethan! I’ve been expecting you.”
Ethan Rider raises his eyes slowly, glaring at Matt from underneath his eyelashes. The agents back off to the corner, just wary of Ethan after his outburst earlier in the week.
Matt: “I hope you’re over your little tantrum this week, Mr Mockingjay?”
Ethan rises to his feet, cocking his head slightly to the side and taking a step towards Matt.
Ethan: “I don’t regret anything I said that night, Anderson.”
Matt: “What a shame.”
Ethan flexes his shoulders, rolling them forward rapidly, before taking a seat facing Matt.
Ethan: “I want something, Matt.”
Matt: “What a surprise! What is it? Tips on how to crush Teacher? Finally come to your senses on that one?”
Ethan raises his eyebrows, tilting his head back, before snapping forwards, his eyes meeting with Matts over the table.
Ethan: “No. I refuse to partake in that match.”
A sneer crosses Matts face, and he barely supresses a laugh.
Matt: “In that case…”
He goes to snap his fingers, nearly ordering Ethans escort to take him away, but Ethan stops him.
Ethan: “You know what Matt? I’ve been here, in the SvO, for over two months now. Right, left and centre we have guys like Cooper as International champion, The Rodriguez brothers being handed OUR Tag title shots… What have I been given? Jack shit.”
Matt: “Your point is?”
Ethan: “Isn’t it time I was given something back? When you FORCED me to join your little posse, you promised me title shots and opportunities… I haven’t been given ANYTHING Matt. So I tell you what… I’ll fight Teacher, but If I win – You have to give me a Las Vegas Title shot.”

“Travel Now Journey Infinitely” by Trinacria begins to play over the arena sound system. The dull tones pick up speed as the haunting voice of a woman sings. As the voice reaches full pitch, the arena’s houselights washes out the arena in light before returning to normal, leaving Grimnir standing at the entrance. He starts to slowly walk down as the hammering drums and energy filled riffs grind through to his very last step. He stands at the front of the ring, points up the sky with both hands, slides into the ring and then kneels, looking as if he were praying. He stays there for a moment and then springs up to his feet, ready for action.
The house lights dim and a cheer erupts from the crowd as the Masked Man emerges from the crowd, his hood pulled low over his head. He slowly moves around the ring, climbing up the steel stairs and stepping between the ropes, cautiously eyeing down Grimnir as he moves to the center of the ring. They both begin to circle each other as the referee calls for the bell!
Both men stare each other down, knowing exactly what is on the line in this match. They both lock up and Grimnir comes out in control, wrenching the Masked Man’s arm behind his back before sending him running towards the ropes. The Masked Man rebounds and Grimnir catches him with a spinning sidewalk slam, however it doesn’t keep the Masked Man down for long. Grimnir attempts to apply an arm lock however the Masked Man manages to drive his knee into Grimnir, breaking the hold. Grimnir lurches forwards and the Masked Man climbs to his feet, clotheslining Grimnir to the mat before attempting a pinfall.
Grimnir gets his shoulder up and the Masked Man rolls away into the corner, climbing to his feet and carefully watching his opponent climb to his feet. As Grimnir raises his arms and prepares to go on the offense again, a chorus of boos from the crowd draws his attention. The Mavericks are making their way down the ramp, “Beautiful” Bobby Dean and Roscoe Shame, with their sights set on Grimnir! They both slide into the ring and move towards Grimnir, however a sudden attack from the Masked Man sends Bobby Dean tumbling down to the mat! Grimnir and Shame begin to trade blows as the crowd cheers for masked men, however the Mavericks quickly take control of the beat down and send both Grimnir and the Masked Man tumbling down to ringside.
The crowd groans collectively as several Company agents emerge from backstage with Matt Anderson following close behind, screaming at them to apprehend the Masked Man. Ignoring the Mavericks, who are stomping down on a writing Grimnir, they seize the Masked Man and begin to drag him back up the ramp. The agents disappear backstage as Grimnir manages to break free from the Mavericks, diving into the ring. He turns around, his mask slightly askew, inviting both men to step into the ring. They look at each other and nod, climbing into the ring to continue their assault. The edge towards Grimnir, however the arena lights suddenly blink out!
A moment passes…
Then, slowly, a spotlight begins to shine down on the middle of the ring, revealing one thing; Grimnir’s trademark green and purple mask, with no sign of the number one contender to the title. As the lights return to their usual hue, Shame and Dean look around wildly, wondering just where Grimnir is… and just who he is, as Showdown comes to an end.
