sVo Showdown Episode #072
27th February 2011
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 Jay Wildman, Roscoe Shame, Night, Bobby Dean and Samuel Amos 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 #71Bobby Dean makes a challenge…..
The camera cuts to the ring, where we see Beautiful Bobby Dean, standing with a microphone in hand. The crowd buzzes.
BBD: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m out here tonight, to issue a challenge to someone. It might be someone you all know, and some of you obviously have come to idolize. But I think the only realize that you’ve all been blindly lead to worship them, is because you are all confused.
The crowd boos.
BBD: You’re confused, because like most unwashed, uneducated, ugly masses, you’re drawn to things with bright lights, and pretty colors. And this person, has decided to use the prettiest color of all to lure you into their grasp. I can’t blame them, as I can tell they have good taste….BUT Sara Pettis has tricked each and every one of you, into thinking she is so much better than she really is!
The crowd pops at the mention of the sVo Tap-Out Champion.
BBD: Don’t you all understand? She’s a blue hair temptress, who is using her blue tights, and blue strobe lights to make you think she’s got any talent. She knew this color blue was my thing! And that by just wearing the same color, she could ride by on my coat tails to superstardom! But not anymore Sara! No more are you going to leach by on my accomplishments! I challenge you, next week on this show, to a “Loser Loses Blue” Match! Winner takes all…we’ll see how great you are when you don’t have Bobby Dean’s Beautiful image to take advantage of anymore! I’ll be looking forward to hearing from you by UnSanctioned! Or I might just see you before then lil’ Ms. Tap-Out Champion!
With that, BBD’s music hits, and he drops the microphone. The audience boos, as BBD leaves the ring, and begins to walk up the ramp out of the arena.
BlueThe scene opens with a shot of the arena. Before long “Nobody But Me” by the Launderettes hits the arena P.A. Blue and white strobe lights begin flashing at the entrance, as from the back, we see Sara Pettis come out. She’s not using crutches, but is still wearing a walking boot on her broken ankle. The crowd pops as Sara makes her way down to the ring, her Tap-Out Championship belt over her shoulder.
Sara gets to the ring, and pulls herself up onto the apron, and a sVo official inside the ring holds the ropes for her to enter the ring. She does so slowly as not to aggravate her injured ankle. As she hobbles to the center of the ring, she asks for a microphone.
Sara Pettis: Ladies and gentlemen, I have come out here tonight, because last week Bobby Dean challenged me to a special match. Last week on Showdown!, Bobby decided that I’m the reason his half-assed over produced crap wasn’t selling. Because I wear a lot of blue. So last week in this ring, Bobby challenged me to a match for tomorrow night, a “Loser Loses Blue” match. Which I can only assume would me the loser of the match would have to stop wearing blue. I will be honest, even though I question Bobby’s actual wrestling talent, I had doubts about accepting this challenge. Because for those of you who don’t know, blue is more than just a color to me. It means more to me than this title belt I have with me right now…
Suddenly, as Sara is talking, “You’re the Best” hits, signaling the arrival of “Beautiful” Bobby Dean. From behind the curtain steps one half of the sVo Tag Team Champions. He walks out with his t-shirt on, a bottle of Beauty Block, and a jar of Beauty Sauce in each hand. As he walks down towards the ring, we see he has price tags attached to all the items, making sure to point out the tags to the fans as he walks passed them. He gets to the ring, and tosses the jar of Beauty Sauce into the ring. Then the bottle of Beauty Block. The jar lands on it’s side, and rolls to Sara’s feet. Bobby slides in under the bottom rope, and walks up to Sara, before bending over and picking up the jar of Beauty Sauce. He asks for a microphone and one of the ringside guys tosses it too him. He turns it on.
BBD: So, I take it you’re trying to say you don’t want to go through with this match huh?
BBD says with a smirk.
Sara Pettis: If you’d let me finish, I’d like too tell you what I want to do.
BBD: Ok, lets hear it.
Sara starts to respond but Bobby interrupts her.
BBD: I’m sorry, you know what, I don’t want to hear what you have to say. You’re boring kid. So why don’t you let a Beautiful person talk for you. Oh, I’m the Tap-Out Champion…I’m a rassler…even though I got huge tits, and blue hair….oh I’m so serious.
Sara brings the microphone up to her mouth.
Sara Pettis: Are you done?
Sara Pettis: Now if you don’t mind, I was trying to accept your pathetic challenge from last week.
The crowd pops at these words, and Bobby smiles.
BBD: Good, good, that’s awesome kid.
Sara Pettis: And all this crap that you have…
Sara bends over and picks up the jar of Beauty Sauce.
Sara Pettis: …I’d say it’d go rancid in a warehouse…but having tasted it, I think it’s already gone bad.
BBD laughs, and reaches over taking the jar from Sara.
BBD: Funny you should bring up this stuff. Because I already talked to some people in charge…and this match is getting ANOTHER stipulation.
Sara rolls her eyes.
BBD: Tonight’s “Loser Loses Blue” match, we’re not going to have it in this ring. Instead, it will be up there, to the side of the stage. The “Loser Loses Blue” match, will also be…a Beauty Bath Match.
Sara raises an eyebrow.
Sara Pettis: What the hell is a “Beauty Bath” match?
BBD: Oh its simple really lil’ girl. I hope you have something sexy to wear. Preferably a two piece. Because tonight we’re going to be wrestling in a pool, of Beauty Sauce…it should be fun.
Sara’s jaw drops. Up next to the stage is a darkened area that lights up, revealing a medium sized rectangular blue swimming pool where sVo stage workers are pouring in jars and jars of “Beauty Sauce”.
Sara Pettis: Are you serious? Why would you have a match like that?
BBD: Because it’s sexy…it’s what I do…if you want to back out…I’ll understand. I just don’t expect you to wear these colors again.
Sara looks down at the jar in BBD’s hand.
Sara Pettis: Fine. I’ll do it.
BBD: Don’t worry kid…this stuff is good for the skin….I think. I don’t know…maybe not.
BBD unscrews the lid of the jar, and begins pouring the sauce over his own head. He laughs.
Sara Pettis: You, are a very different man.
With that Sara drops her microphone, as Bobby begins rubbing the sauce into his face and hair. Sara has a disgusted look on her face as she leaves the ring. Bobby continues his self message with the sauce, as Sara looks back…obviously wondering what it is she’s gotten herself into.
The Plan Comes Together
Nathan Paradine and “Sexy” Simon Marks are shown standing backstage in the parking lot, both men discussing something in whispers. Paradine glances around to make sure they are being unobserved.
Nathan Paradine: “So, can I assume your… job… was successful?”
Marks rolls his eyes and reaches inside his sequined leather jacket. He withdraws a disk and hands it to Paradine who quickly stuffs it into his own jacket.
Simon Marks: “I took the liberty of burning it to a disk for you. I wasn’t sure if your muscle-bound brain could handle operating a computer. I’m sure you could handle others things though, preferably my-“
Nathan Paradine: “Yeah, whatever. Here’s your money, try not to spend it all in one place. Pleasure doing business with you.”
Paradine pulls out his wallet and fishes out a handful of hundred dollar bills. He hands them to Marks who counts them carefully before putting them into his pocket.
Simon Marks: “Believe me, the pleasure was all mine.”
Paradine turns around and begins to walk back towards the arena, his shoulders hunched. He smirks as he approaches the backstage door, happy that his plans for “Beautiful” Bobby Dean are finally being put into motion.
Jack Heart Vs. Crippler
“Last Resort” plays as Canadian Crippler comes out from behind the curtains. His attention is completely focused on the ring, as he makes his way down the ramp. He enters the ring, sliding in under the bottom rope and awaits the arrival of his opponent, Jack “Rookie of the Year” Heart.
“Club Foot” by Kasabian blares around the arena as Jack “Rookie of the Year” Heart makes his way out from the backstage area and slowly walks down to the ring. Heart jumps up on to the apron and enters the ring with a rope-assisted flip over the top rope.
Both men stare at each other ready to begin the match.
Heart and Crippler circle each other, before Heart offers his hand in the classic strength test opening to the match. As the two men entwine their fingers, Jack Heart quickly kicks Crippler behind the right knee forcing the sVo veteran to break the hold. Heart follows up with a second and third kick causing Crippler to buckle to his side. Heart goes for a front kick, but Crippler catches his foot and pushes Jack away before getting back to a properly upright base.
Both men stare at each other for moment, while the crowd cheers. They circle each other before locking up in a collar and elbow, Crippler using his experience by slipping around and placing Heart in a waistlock. Heart throws elbows left and right, but Crippler is able to dodge them, before being caught off guard by mule kick from Heart. Crippler releases the hold and collapses to his knees in pain. Heart pivots on the spot before kicking Crippler in the ribs on the right and then on the left. He follows up both kicks with a roundhouse kick to the head of Crippler. Heart seizes his earlier opportunity and goes for the cover.
Crippler manages to get his shoulder off the mat at the last moment. Heart slaps the mat in frustration before pulling Crippler to his feet but the shoulder straps on his singlet. He whips the former sVo Tag Team Champion into the ropes and swings a clothesline which the veteran is smart enough to duck under, as he comes back from the other side, Crippler smashes Heart with a clothesline of his own. Crippler quickly picks Heart up and throws him with a release belly to belly suplex. Crippler waits for Heart to pull himself to his feet in a three point stance, as Heart stands; Crippler charges him and connects with a shoulder right under the rib cage of Heart taking the wind out of his lungs. Crippler follows up with a snap mare take over and then kicks him in the small of the back.
Crippler plays to the crowd who are cheering for the action, before returning his attention to Jack Heart. He lifts the debutant up and connects with an inverted atomic drop, before driving his face into the mat with a bulldog. Heart rolls over to his back while holding his face and Crippler quickly follows up with an elbow drop. Crippler makes a cover…
Kickout! That wasn’t enough to keep the newcomer to Goodfellas Casino down. Crippler looks around the arena as he brings Jack Heart to his feet, he locks him a front facelock and it looks like he is going to emulate his partner’s finisher and go for Rey’s DDT. NO! It didn’t happen as Heart countered with a backdrop. Both men are on their feet and Jack Heart goes to kick Crippler but he catches his foot, Heart quickly balances himself and connects with an enzuguri. Crippler hits the mat and Heart goes for the cover.
Crippler gets a shoulder up. Heart stands up and so does Crippler, but he is quickly taken back down when Heart hits him with a dropkick to his knees. That can’t be good. Heart picks Crippler up and drives a knee into his throat, leaving him double over, Heart connects with a scissor kick that sends Crippler into the mat. Heart stands there gloating at his more experienced opponent before telling the crowd what he thinks, drawing a chorus of boo’s from the audience. After yelling at the fans ringside Heart makes his way over to the corner turnbuckle and goes to leap to the top rope, but in all his time wasting Crippler had recovered and clips him just as he is about to land. This causes Heart to lose his balance and get hung up in the tree of woe position. Crippler kicks him until the force of his boots causes him to unhook and collapse in a heap on the sVo canvas.
Crippler picks Heart up and drops him with a Russian legsweep, before following up immediately with an elbowdrop. He lifts him to his feet and quickly strikes with a backbreaker and strikes down on the prone Jack Heart with a falling double axe handle. He grabs Heart off the mat and takes him back down with a snap suplex. At this stage of the match, Crippler is firmly in control. Crippler whips Heart into the corner and charges, but is caught by a boot to the chest just as he arrives; Heart comes out of the corner and takes him down with a reverse neckbreaker. Jack jumps on the bottom turnbuckle and jumps at Crippler connecting with a flying forearm, both men tumble on the mat. Both men use this moment to catch their breath, but stir before the official starts to count, Heart is slightly more aware and sweeps Crippler’s legs out from underneath him and locking in a knee lock submission hold. But, Crippler is too close to the ropes and grabs hold of them. The referee insists that Heart release the hold, which he eventually does, but not before he gets to four of the five count, which could of lead to his disqualification.
Crippler uses the ropes to pull himself to his feet, and Heart stands. As Crippler pulls himself away from the ropes, Heart charges and Crippler ducks just as Heart leaves his feet. Jack gets his throat caught on the top rope in a sort of self applied hot shot. Crippler grabs him as he falls away from the ropes and nails him with the Crippler Suplex. Heart crashes into the mat and Crippler quickly locks on the Canadian Lock onto the newcomer, applying an incredible amount of torque to his ankle.
Jack Heart is twisting and squirming trying to escape the painful submission hold. He can see the ropes in his sights, he’s reaching, reaching. No, he’s not there yet. Heart is being asked if he wants to tap, but not yet. Jack tries to pull himself closer to the ropes. He reaches out…
YES! Heart has got hold of the ropes. He twists his body and kicks Crippler off him just as the sVo Official is telling to let go. Heart pulls himself up and rests against the nearest turnbuckle to regain composure. Crippler charges, eager to take advantage of his near victory, Heart moves out of the way at the last second and Crippler collects the turnuckles at full force. Heart lifts Crippler onto his shoulder, struggling to hold him on his ankle. He spins around in circles; Heart drops Crippler onto his knee with the brutal facebreaker known as FYA! Heart collapses and covers Crippler.
The newcomer did it. Jack Heart has defeated sVo veteran Canadian Crippler on his debut in an outstanding match.
Cody Williams & Nathan Paradine Vs. JVD & Benedict WilsonThere 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.

After a few seconds the figure of Benedict Wilson cuts through the dark smoke and makes his way down to the ring, ignoring the booing crowd. Wilson rolls into the ring and slumps down in the corner as he waits for his opponent to arrive.
“Sorry, You’re Not A Winner” by Enter Shikari blasts around the arena as Nathan Paradine appears at the top of the ramp, his arms crossed over his chest and his head bowed. He glances up, the lights reflecting off his sunglasses and he points out towards the crowd, oblivious to their boos. He marches down to the ring and slides in underneath the bottom rope, climbing to his feet and raising an arm up into the air as the music dies away.
The sound of a THX Dolby Digital Surround Sound test fills the arena, synched to the slow dimming of the house lights. “Head Like A Hole” (Clay Remix) by Nine Inch Nails plays on the speakers. Gold lights and lasers wander throughout the arena as smoke and the flashing of a strobe light covers the entrance way.
The smoke gets heavier as it settles in a foggy haze as Cody Williams makes his way through the curtain. He looks out into the crowd and turns sideways, extending his arms out to his sides. Cody Williams sprints down to the ring before he rushes to the nearest corner and raises his arms up in the air, staring into the crowd. He opens up his fur coat, pounds his chest three times, and then points out to crowd and then points to himself. He jumps off the turnbuckle, doing a 180 turn and starts bouncing around while waiting for the match to get started.
With both teams at the ring the fans are looking ready for the tag team match as Cody Williams and James Von Drake look ready to get things started for their respective teams. With Nathan Paradine and Benedict Wilson both on the ring apron, the referee calls for the bell to be rung and JVD and Cody Williams slowly circle around each other in the middle of the ring.

Inside the women’s locker room, we see Sara Pettis pacing back and forth. She looks at her watch, and back towards a monitor showing whats going on in the arena. She knows it’s not much longer before her match with Bobby Dean, but she’s still wearing her street clothes. There is a knock on the door.
Sara Pettis: Who is it?
::from outside the door:: sVo Road Crew Member: I was sent here to give you something for your match tonight Ms. Pettis.
Sara thinks for a second. It could be someone wanting to jump her for the sVo Tap-Out Title, so she braces herself and gets behind the door before opening it. The sVo Crew member slowly enters the room, and as soon as he does, Sara shuts the door.
sVo Crew Member: Woah! Ms. Pettis, I’m alone, I’m alone!
Sara looks at the guy, up and down.
Sara Pettis: I can’t be too careful anymore. You said you had something for me for my match tonight?
The crew member nods, and hands Sara a bag.
sVo Crew Member: Mr. Dean asked me to give this too you. He wants you to wear it in the match.
Sara rolls her eyes, and reaches into the bag. She pulls out a light blue g-string bikini that looks only about as thick as dental floss in most places. She drops it back into the bag.
Sara Pettis: No…not happening.
She pushes the bag into the Crew Member’s chest, about pushing him back onto his ass.
sVo Crew Member: I’m sorry Ms. Pettis, it was Mr. Dean’s idea. Not mine.
Suddenly there is another knock on the door.
Sara Pettis: That’s probably the one I was waiting for.
Sara walks over to the door.
Sara Pettis: Sheldon?
Sheldon Hossteder: Yea, I got it Sara. And I got back as quick as I could.
Sara opens the door and Sheldon walks in with a bag from Sun & Ski Sports.
Sheldon Hossteder: I think you’ll like this one. It’s black, but it has light blue trim…it was the closest I could find.
Sara Pettis: That works just fine. You, take that back to Bobby Dean.
Sara tells the Crew Member who nods, and leaves the room. Sara looks in the bag, and up at Sheldon.
Sara Pettis: Thats perfect. Bobby will flip when he sees this.
DJ Vs. Roscoe Shame”Sinner” by Drowning Pool begins. On the big screen we see highlights of DJ. Then DJ comes out walking and dancing a bit toward the ring. The fans in the arena boo as yellow and red fireworks shoot up into the air from the entrance ramp as “Drop Tha World” by Lil Wayne hits the sound system. A few seconds later Roscoe Shame appears at the top of the ramp pretending to play the guitar, and the fans go wild for 6’6″ heavyweight from Kalamazoo, Michigan. The fans stand to their feet and cheer at the mockery he is making of himself at the top of the entrance stage before he makes his way slowly down the entrance ramp his way to the ring. As Shame walks past pyro’s shoot up alongside him from either side of the ramp until he reaches the ring. Roscoe Shame slowly climbs into the ring soaking up the fans reaction, before posing on the nearest turnbuckle.
The bell rings as Shame attacks DJ from behind. Shame throws DJ against the ropes and throws him high in the air but instead of falling face first to the mat DJ improvises and dropkicks Shame in mid air. Shame gets up quickly only to get a second dropkick that pushes the big man over the top rope to the outside.
DJ quickly bounces off the ropes as Roscoe Shame makes it to his feet on the outside. DJ jumps over the top rope with ease landing with a corkscrew plancha on Shame on the outside.

Simon Austin: Welcome back fans, as Showdown is turning into an extremely exciting event here tonight! And by far we are not even close to being done yet.
Anthony Moretti: Do you have to always suck up to the fans and put over sVo that much?
Simon Austin: I figured that you would be grateful that I was aiding something you help make so big, come across as exciting as it has been lately.
Anthony Moretti: Save your nonsense kid, you couldn’t sell food to a homeless man who is about to die from starvation!
Suddenly the Goodfella Casino’s lights start to flicker, as the crowd starts to rumble from the power surge they are eye witnessing at the current moment.
Anthony Moretti: I think someone forgot to pay the power bill. This is worst than section 8 housing when Social Services is closed for a holiday!
Simon Austin: Pardon the electrical issues fans. There are men currently trying to solve the problem and hopefully it will not mess up the show and the matches we have left for you!
Suddenly the lights go completely out, as a dead silence takes over. You can see cell phones being used as light sources from the fans and even a few lighters. A voice comes out from the sound system in the Goodfella Casino.
Voice: WHO AM I? WHY CAN’T I REMEMBER!
Suddenly the voice just stops, as darkness has engulf the place and one area of the Las Vegas strip is not shining in the dark of night.
Simon Austin: What are you doing Anthony? Trying to scare people with switching your headset over to the sound system in the Goodfella Casino?
Anthony Moretti: Yeah needle dick, I am sitting here minding my own business in the dark and all I feel is some hand on the inside of my thigh. Remove your chubby and oily fingers before they are served as room service in the morning and do not ever accuse me of something so pathetic as trying to prank you or anyone else!
Suddenly the lights come back on and there is someone standing in the ring, wearing a pair of black jeans and a black hoody that covers his head. His face is position down towards the canvas, as he slowly reaches up with his hand grabs the top of the hood. He quickly throws it back to reveal what looks to be some sort of Mexican or Japanese mask covering his face.
Simon Austin: Who is that?
Anthony Moretti: How am I suppose to know kid? Go up there and ask him if you are so curious!
Simon Austin: Hmm, no thanks Tony, I will pass!
Anthony Moretti: ANTHONY YOU MINDLESS TWIT! Call me Tony one more time and I will give you an extended vacation at the local intensive care unit in the hospital and your disfigured face and lifeless body will be image I use on my Christmas cards I mail to your mommy and daddy!
Suddenly the lights go back out, as the crowd starts to shout loudly and the lights come back up but the man in the mask is now no longer in sight. The Violence-Tron displays static and the sound system echoes it for everyone to hear. Suddenly Seether’s “Fuck It” plays and the Violence-Tron goes to a black screen with the words BLACK OUT flashing in white text as blood oozes down from it.
Anthony Moretti: WHAT THE FU
Simon Austin: WHOA ANTHONY! Fans we will regroup and return shortly!
Bobby Dean Vs. Sara Pettis
“You’re the Best” begins to play as the lights go down and a baby blue spotlight is shown at the top of the entrance ramp. BBD comes out to a chorus of boos in his baby blue Ric Flair-esque robe that is covered in sparkling diamonds. He walks over to the side of the stage where the pool has been set up for the match. There is a step ladder leading down to the area, and a ref wearing swim trunks and a striped shirt is waiting next to the pool. Bobby stops at the top of the stairs, and unsinches his robe, letting it fall too the stage, and revealing that he is wearing a light blue, European style speedo underneath. The crowd groans as Bobby stretches his arms out to his sides, showing off his physique in the flimsy material, before slowly descending down the ladder, and over to the pool area.
Natasha Ortiz: Ladies and gentlemen, this match is scheduled for one fall, and is a “Beauty Bath” Match, with the stipulation that the loser must do away with anything blue. Introducing first, he is one half of the sVo Tag Team Champions. From Houston, Texas, weighing in at 202 Lbs. “Beautiful” Bobby Dean!
Bobby stops at the pool, and raises his arms again, before being handed a microphone.
BBD: Oh, thank you everybody, thank you. But please. Not too much photography. I know you all want photographic evidence of my all around beauty, but I can’t imagine what the folks down at the Wal*Mart photo department might think when they’re developing you’re little one use funsavers. Now, I know I’m the eye candy you all wanted to see here in this match, but I couldn’t help but feel a little sorry for Sara, since I knew you all would have your eyes all over me. Yes, even the dudes, because we all know your curiosity won’t let you look away. So I sent a little something for her to wear so she might get some attention. I hope you all enjoy it. Oh Sara…why don’t you come on out and show us.
With that, “Nobody But Me” by the Launderettes begins to play, and from the back steps Sara Pettis. She’s wearing a long blue robe that goes all the way down to the stage, which she’s keeping closed tightly on her. Bobby Dean stands next to the pool and laughs at this as Sara, on her broken ankle hobbles along to the ladder against the stage. Doing her best to keep her robe closed, and her Tap-Out Championship belt over her shoulder.
Natasha Ortiz: And his opponent, from Queens, New York, weighing in at 127 Lbs. She is the sVo Tap-Out Champion…Sara Pettis!
Sara gets to the top of the ladder, and Bobby brings his microphone to his mouth.
BBD: Wait, before you start coming down that ladder Sara. Maybe you should…you know…lose the robe. That way you won’t trip over it or something, and hurt yourself even more.
BBD smiles, and Sara takes a deep breath. She unties the strap around her waist, and lets the robe fall.
BBD: Wait! What the hell is that? That isn’t the swim suit I gave you!
Sara is revealed to be wearing a black and blue, form fitting, spandex wet suit…similar to what a surfer would wear. She smiles down at BBD as she begins to climb down the steps of the ladder to the area where the match is taking place.
BBD: This is bullshit Sara! I spent good money on that swimsuit, and you’re not even going to wear it? That’s just disrespectful!
Sara gets to where Bobby is standing, and is handed a microphone of her own.
Sara Pettis: You want to talk about disrespectful? Look at what you’re wearing Bobby. Do you really think I want to wrestle you, when at any moment your “Lil’ Bobby” might spring out of that thing. The decent thing would’ve been to at least worn trunks.
BBD: Sorry, but somebody had to look Beautiful in this match…it is called a Beauty Bath after all.
The two stare each other down, and the ref steps between them.
Referee: Alright you two, listen up. These are the rules of the match. Match begins when you both get in the pool. Once inside the pool, neither of you can leave the pool. The match will be one fall, and can be won by submission, or pin. If you leave the pool, you will be disqualified. Illegal weapons, and outside interference will also get you disqualified, you got that?
Sara Pettis: Yes.
Referee: As always, the Tap-Out Championship is on the line if you submit Ms. Pettis. Do you understand?
Sara Pettis: I do.
Referee: Alright, then lets start this match.
The ref climbs over the side of the pool, and into the light blue glop lining the bottom of it. It reaches about halfway up his leg. Sara and Bobby Dean both climb over the side, and into the goo. Sara’s face cringes as she does so. Bobby bends over and scoops some up as the ref calls for the bell.
The bell rings, and BBD slings the handful of goop towards Sara, who ducks out of the way. She charges towards BBD as best she can on her bad leg and tackles him, causing both to flop into the blue slime, sending a huge wave into the air, and the fans into a frenzy. Sara and BBD roll around in the goo for a few seconds, trying to get the better of one another. The fans get into it as the two wrestle in the Beauty Sauce, trying to get the upper hand. Finally Sara begins to get slight upper hand locking BBD into a rear naked choke. Both Sara and Bobby are already completely covered in Beauty Sauce, making it hard for Sara to keep the hold locked in on BBD. Everytime BBD tries to shake Sara off, he about slips out of the hold, but Sara is determined to not let go. Finally Bobby stands up with Sara on his back. He then drops backwards, driving Sara right into the floor of the pool which is the only thing padding the concrete of the arena floor. A huge splash of sauce flies up as a result. Sara groans on her back as BBD gets his bearings, and leans against the inflated side of the pool.
Sara begins to stir, and gets up to her knees in the slime, and BBD walks over and kicks Sara in the midsection, causing her to collapse back down to the pool floor. Bobby then grabs Sara’s bad ankle by her bare foot, and begins to wrench on it. Sara begins to scream in pain as BBD continues to twist swollen, black and blue ankle of the Tap-Out Champion. The ref leans down and asks if Sara wants to tap, but she refuses. Bobby wrenches again, causing Sara to let out a shriek and the ref asks again if she wants to tap. But she doesn’t. Sara then quickly rolls her weight sideways allowing her to slip her foot out of BBD’s grasp. BBD about slips in the sauce, and fights to keep balance, allowing Sara to grab BBD’s leg, and legdrag take down him onto the floor of the pool. Sara quickly rolls BBD over onto his stomach, and jumps on his back, pushing his face down into the Beauty Sauce. BBD struggles, as it seems like Sara is trying to drown BBD in his own product. The ref pulls Sara off BBD, and warns her about what she was doing, and the fans groan. BBD lifts himself up to his knees, and begins to cough, getting air into his lungs as he couldn’t when he was face down in the Sauce. Sara waits for Bobby to stand up, and when he does, she does a handstand, wrapping her legs around Bobby’s neck, and lifting herself up onto his shoulders for what appears to be a Saracanrana. But before she can finish the move, BBD reverses it into a sickening sit down powerbomb into the sauce that sends it flying, splattering people in the front row next to the area the match is taking place. BBD laughs as he crawls on top of Sara, and hooks her leg. The ref doesn’t lay down to count, instead just crouching down and counting…
The crowd roars as Sara surprisingly is able to kick out of the high impact maneuver. BBD can’t believe it, and begins to chastise the ref for not counting the traditional way. The ref explains that he didn’t want to lay down in the sauce, and Bobby bends over, and scoops some up, throwing it in the ref’s face. The ref is blinded by this, and as soon as BBD turns around, he is greeted with a blatant low blow by Sara, due to the ref’s being blinded by beauty sauce.
As BBD buckles over. Sara lifts herself off the ground, and hits BBD with “Blue Moon”! Bobby slowly falls back like a tree that just got chopped down, into the muck. Sara is quick to cover Bobby.
But the ref is still trying to get the sauce out of his eyes, and is asking for a towel as Sara hooks the leg. Sara screams at the ref that she has a pin, when finally a sVo set worker hands him a towel to clean his eyes. When the ref turns around and sees Sara with the pin, he runs over and begins to count…
The crowd groans, and Sara has a look of shock in her eyes as BBD at the last second is able to get his should up. Sara looks at the ref, who signals to her that it was a long two count, and she can’t believe it.
BBD begins to stir on the floor of the pool as Sara argues her case with the ref, who again tells her that it was a two count. BBD meanwhile can be seen scooping up a handful of sauce yet again, and as soon as Sara turns towards him, he slings it.
Once again though Sara ducks out of the way, and BBD again hits the ref in the face. But this time purely on accident.
As the ref is blinded again, we see a figure jump out of the crowd. It’s BBD’s tag partner Roscoe Shame! He runs over to the pool, reaches in, and grabs the Tap-Out Champion by her wetsuit. He pulls Sara up, over the side of the pool wall and onto the arena floor. He begins to put the boots to Sara, as the ref once again is toweling off his face. BBD yells at Roscoe to leave as the ref wipes his face clean, which Roscoe does, having done his damage to Sara. But as he tries to leave, suddenly out of nowhere from the stage comes a blur of black and white. We see that it’s Sheldon Hossteder, who has just dived off the stage, and tackled Roscoe onto the concrete. Sheldon lifts Roscoe up off the cold concrete, and begins to lead the other tag champion over towards the pool. He tosses Roscoe over the side of the pool causing him to flop down into the shallow pool of Beauty Sauce. Sheldon then walks over to the no longer blind ref, and points at Roscoe, then to Sara laying on the arena floor outside of the pool. Sheldon explains to the ref that Shame pulled Sara out of the pool, interfering with the match. The ref calls for the bell.
Everyone is confused as Sara sits up on the arena floor. Sheldon walks over and offers a hand to help her to her feet. BBD and Roscoe sit in the pool and wait, as no one is sure what the ref’s call is. He says something to one of the ringside workers, who sprints down to the ringside area where Natasha Ortiz is sitting.
Natasha Ortiz: Ladies and gentlemen, the winner of this match, by disqualification…..
All four perk up.
Natasha Ortiz: Due to outside interference. Sara Pettis!
The crowd erupts as Sheldon lifts Sara’s arm into the air. BBD and Roscoe can’t believe it, and start arguing with the ref. Sheldon grabs some towels from some ringside guys and Sara begins to wrap herself in them as Sheldon helps her hobble her way out of the arena. BBD and Roscoe are still arguing with the ref as the scene fades to commercial.
An Uninvited Guest
‘The Imperial March’ plays as Ahilles Young walks down the ramp ALONE wearing an all black suit. Achilles steps into the ring signals for a microphone and does and waves his hands for the music to stop.
Achilles Young: Well, well, well. Love me or hate me I am here. You found out last week and you found out yesterday. I love these second class citizens called wrestlers here in the sVo.
The crowd boos at a deafening volume.
Achilles Young: I love em because they nit pick. They bicker and all the while I am riding through taking over. You wanna know what I love most about these bums. I love how they…..
…. “Hurt” by Johnny Cash begins to blare across the arena as shots of Timothy Webb flash across the face of the big screen. Before Achilles even knows what’s going on Timothy Webb appears at the top of the runway in a black suite and white tie. Webb smiles widely at the crowed.
Timothy Webb: “Wow! This is a lot of people.”
Webb bobs his head in approval.
Timothy Webb: “I’m Timothy Webb everyone! sVo’s newest talent. But I am far from new to…”
Achilles Young: “Shut up!”
Achilles barks at Webb from the ring which sends Timothy jumping nearly a foot into the air. He looks shocked to see it came from someone in the ring.
Achilles Young: “I don’t know who you are, and I really don’t care, all I want to know is what the hell… do you think your doing!”
Webb seems confused, only for a moment, before responding.
Timothy Webb: “Introducing myself to the sVo Fans!”
Webb yelps as he pans his arm across the stands of the area.
Timothy Webb: “And as I said, my name is Timothy…”
Achilles Young: “And like I said, I don’t really care! All I want to know is what the hell you’re doing out here interrupting My Time!”
Timothy shrugs as he makes a bewildered expression. He then proceeds to look about, in vain, for something he clearly seems to know isn’t there.
Timothy Webb: “Sorry, I didn’t see it written anywhere that this was ‘your time’.”
Webb impersonates Achilles as he says ‘your time’ by flexing his muscles and pointing to himself.
Timothy Webb: “Maybe you can come back later when I’m done introducing myself?”
This instantly, and obviously, infuriates Achilles. Grabbing the top rope in front of him, with his free hand, Achilles shakes it wildly.
Achilles Young: “That’s it kid! You’re…”
Timothy Webb: “Alright, alright! Clam down, I’ll go.”
Achilles, already halfway through the ropes, stops himself and slowly gets back into the ring. The whole time staring Timothy down.
Timothy Webb: “But before I go…”
Webb holds up his index finger but, before he can continue, Achilles is out of the ring and after Webb. With a mixed look of shock and awe on his face, Webb turns tail and disappears into the back. Achilles stops at the top of the runway as “The Imperial March” hits and he fans his hand at the crowd as if to say “Forget it.” The fams boo as Achilles walks to the back

Meeting of the Minds
Matt Anderson is shown sitting in his office, poring over various documents related to the running of the sVo. The door is abruptly thrown open however and Nathan Paradine steps into the room, dressed in his ring gear from his tag team match. He slowly approaches the desk and Anderson lowers the document he is reading, his eyebrow raised.
Matt Anderson: “Can I help you with something, Paradine?”
Paradine ignores Anderson and picks up a photograph of Anderson during his wrestling heyday. Paradine snickers and lowers the photograph back down onto the desk.
Matt Anderson: “Well? Or am I going to call security and have your ass thrown out of here?”
Nathan Paradine: “I’ve come to offer you… a deal, of sorts.”
Matt Anderson: “What the hell are you talking about?”
Nathan Paradine: “You’re the only man in the sVo with the power to book the match I want. Now, I want a match for the tag team titles against Beautiful Shame. I even put in a request to the Company on the down low, since we both happen to speak the same language.”
Paradine rubs his fingers together, making the universal symbol for money. Anderson nods his head slowly, urging him to continue.
Nathan Paradine: “Since the Company haven’t gotten back to me and I’m an impatient man, I’m coming straight to you. I want a tag team match at Vendetta, and I’m prepared to go to extremes to get it. I have something that could possibly destroy the reputation of Bobby Dean.”
Matt Anderson: “Do you really think I care? It’s easy to find a prima donna like him in this business.”
Nathan Paradine: “Heh. Believe me, this could be bad for the sVo… because I happen to have in my possession a sex tape starring a certain former member of the Hostility roster and sVo’s very own blue-wearing ass bandit. Do you really want that kind of publicity? Especially after the unfortunate death of Scott Love, and the unusually high number of workers you’ve laid off ever since you took over control in the name of the Company.”
Anderson grinds his teeth together, an action that only serves to widen the smirk on Paradine’s face. Eventually he swallows and manages to compose himself.
Matt Anderson: “I’ll see what I can do. No guarantees, mind you!”
Nathan Paradine: “I’m glad we’re now on the same page. The last thing the world needs to see is Bobby Dean attempting to perform fellatio on himself after all… but bear in mind, I’m only going to wait a week. If I don’t get an answer on Showdown, I’m going to play the sex tape for EVERYONE to see.”
Anderson nods again and Paradine turns to leave the office. He pauses next to the turn however and glances over his shoulder.
Nathan Paradine: “It’s a shame I have to force your hand like this, Anderson. I know we’ve had our differences, but I’m sure we could be a killer team if we wanted to.”
Paradine exits the office, slamming the door shut behind him. Anderson leans back in his chair with a thoughtful expression as the scene comes to an end.
