sVo Sunday Night Showdown 132
Goodfellas Casino Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
19th June 2022
The entrance video package for Sunday Night Showdown begins, accompanied by the theme song of ‘Showdown’ by Pendulum as highlights of past action from 2013 to present day are sped up, showing the likes of Bobby Dean, Roscoe Shame, Night, Jay Wildman, Cody Williams & Nathan Paradine. As the video package finally comes to an end with an extended look at the ‘Sunday Night Showdown’ logo, the camera cuts to an exterior shot of the Goodfellas Casino Arena, in the heart of the Las Vegas strip, before cutting to a live shot of inside the arena. The camera pans around the sold-out crowd, most of them on their feet and screaming loudly whilst trying to get their homemade sign shown in front of the camera. The cameras finally head over to the commentary table, where Julian Fiasco and Jeremiah Sloan welcome the fans watching on TV to the broadcast and begin to break down some of the action that will take place on tonight’s show!
Jacob Izaz vs. Junior Gambino
After the impressive victory for Jacob Izaz over Blood Money’s Junior Gambino, the cameras head backstage to the interview area where Katie Smith is standing by with married couple, ‘the Dark Horse’ Curtis Knight & the sVo Roulette Champion Athena!
Smith looks up at Knight and Athena to begin the interview, with both of them towering above her.
Katie Smith: “Guys, thanks for joining me here tonight! Now tonight Jon Page has booked a big main event with all four of the semifinalists of the Victory Cup competing in a tag team match! With you both being tagged together, do you think that gives you the advantage?”
Athena: “Oh we have the advantage no doubt! Not only will we work as a well oiled team, but I will beat Alissia Young in the semi final and Curtis will wipe the floor with Johnny Moretti in the other one!”
Katie Smith: “Well that would certainly set up an interesting Victory Cup final with both of you competing against each other!…..”
Athena: “Well we can’t say that hasn’t happened before….”
The sVo Roulette Championship belt is proudly held in the air by Athena, as she smiles wildly at her husband who she won it from at the last PPV. Knight doesn’t look too impressed, as he gently lowers his wife’s arm.
Curtis Knight: “Trust me, it might be a rematch but the result will be very different…..”
Knight walks away from the scene, leaving Athena to awkwardly catch up with him as the scene fades out.
Carny Sinclair vs. Cherry Bordeaux
Tap Or Snap
The cameras head backstage, where alongside Katie Smith in the interview area this time is Johnny Moretti and the sVo TapOut Champion Alissia Young! The unlikely partners look in confident mood ahead of their main event match later tonight.
Katie Smith: “Thanks for joining me quickly. Now in the main event tonight you are teaming up to face Athena & Curtis Knight, does that leave you at a big disadvantage having not teamed together before?”
Johnny Moretti: “Katie, we all know that if Jon Page can stack the odds against me then he will do it in anyway that he can. Now whilst I would much rather be tagging with one of my Blood Money brothers, if I can’t then there is no one on the roster that I would pick over Alissia!”
Young nods in a show of mutual respect.
Alissia Young: “Katie, this right here means that it doesn’t matter who we face, we are the favourites….”
Young holds the TapOut Championship up to the camera.
Alissia Young: “Tonight I am going to make Athena tap again, unless she wants to hide behind her husband and then I will make him tap instead! We are walking out of here winners tonight, and then we will meet in the final of the Victory Cup!”
Alissia Young & Johnny Moretti fist bump, seemingly very much on the same page, as the scene fades out.
Tag Team Match
Son and a Gun vs The Starr Brothers
Big Aug vs. Money Malone
In Your Head
The cameras head to the backstage area, and there is a big cheer from the fans watching in the arena on the big screen as it focuses in on Darwin Jones! Jones is standing tall getting ready for his match against Kyle McRae, which is next! Jones slowly makes his way down the corridor towards the ringside area, but as he turns the corner he walks straight into the waiting Hugo Ryzing!
There are huge boos for Ryzing, as Darwin Jones snarls angrily at his former Tag Team partner.
Hugo Ryzing: “Oh dear Darwin, did you just touch me? Don’t worry, I won’t tell Page and get you suspended…. This time….”
Darwin Jones: “Go for it dipshit, if I get suspended then you do too. Don’t even think of taking the easy way out and getting involved in my match tonight so that it gives you an excuse not to show up at the PPV!”
Ryzing laughs in the face of Jones, keeping only a few inches away from touching him.
Hugo Ryzing: “Oh I don’t need to get involved Darwin, I am already in your head…. I know you are going to lose tonight and then lose to me at the PPV!”
Jones looks confused as he stares at Ryzing, before slowly making his way past him. Ryzing laughs loudly as he watches his former tag team partner walk away.
The cameras head backstage to the office of Jon Page, where the boss is watching the interaction between Darwin Jones & Hugo Ryzing with a great deal of interest. However suddenly the office door swings open and in staggers a sweating Money Malone, still exhausted from his victory over Big Aug.
Jon Page: “Yes?”
Page clearly looks annoyed at Malone bursting in without asking, but Malone doesn’t seem to pick up on the vibe.
Money Malone: “You see that Page? I just beat your boy one on one! Now I think that entitles me to a shot at the Las Vegas Championship!”
Jon Page: “Hmmm. Carny Sinclair has already staked a claim, but you do have a point. Tell you what, if you can beat Carny Sinclair then the winner can face Lazar at the PPV with the belt on the line!”
Malone looks angry at not getting the immediate title shot, but Page doesn’t look in the mood to argue as the scene fades out.
Darwin Jones vs. Kyle McRae
Step To The King
After the shock victory for Kyle McRae over Darwin Jones, the camera heads backstage where the sVo Champion William Vorheez is watching the action alongside the sVo Tag Team Champions the Black Brothers from their locker room!
The fans cheer upon the sight of the Champions, but suddenly the locker room door swings open and in walks Kenneth D Williams! The Black Brothers immediately jump into action, but Vorheez holds them both back with a hand on their chest.
Kenneth D Williams: “You see that Vorheez? Pretty big upset, not as big as an upset as when I beat you at Ultimate Victory!”
William Vorheez: “You got some balls walking right in here like this kid, I will give you that.”
Kenneth D Williams: “I’m not a kid, and you won’t give me anything…. Everything I am getting I will take myself! I am not afraid of you three…. The clock is ticking until Ultimate Victory for you Vorheez!”
Williams slowly backs out of the locker room, making sure not to turn his back to the Champion, before closing the door behind him.
Vorheez slowly turns to his protegees with an impressed look on his face.
William Vorheez: “Hmmm. I’m almost impressed guys….”
