sVo Ultimate Victory 2007
28th October 2007
Goodfellas Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada
Backstage, Mike Best sits in his locker room talking to someone on a cell phone. He nods, listening to the voice on the other end, and a smile comes over his face. Suddenly, however, a sharp knock at the door startles him.
Best: Someone’s here. I gotta go. Everything’s set for tonight though, right? Alright. Bye.
He makes his way over to the door, pulling it open to reveal sVo co-owner Jon Page. The two men lock eyes for a moment, neither smiling.
Page: Well aren’t you going to…
There is an awkward silence for a moment, both men just staring at each other, waiting.
Page: Have you thought over my proposal?
Best: Yeah, I have. Jon, I burned my bridge with Jimmy Moretti a long time ago, and I did it because I believed in Dynasty Wrestling. And yet, where were you when it was time to return to the favor? Where were you when I was suspended from Project: Violence and stripped of the championship I’d worked so hard to hold on to? Where were you last week, even, when Jimmy Moretti ended my undefeated streak in the sVo with a little bit of cold steel justice, right on top of my head? I don’t trust you, and as far as I’m concerned this little working relationship isn’t permanent. But I know that Moretti is going to do everything in his power to stop me from becoming champion tonight, and I need to even the odds. So yeah, Page, we have a deal.
Page extends his hand for Mike to shake. After a brief moment of hesitation, Mike reaches in, takes his hand, and shakes it in return. But when Page tries to let go, Mike grips harder, pulling him in close.
Best: But I’m warning you, Page. If you get any bright fucking ideas about where your loyalties lie tonight…
Page pulls away from him, a smile on his face.
Page: You just take care of Joey Peyton. I’ll handle the rest.
He turns to walk away, but just before Mike closes the door, Page pokes his head back into the room.
Page: Oh, and good luck out there tonight… champ.

The scene switches to the office of Jon Page, where the co-owner of the sVo is shuffling some papers on his desk when the door bursts open and in storms an enraged Joey Peyton.
Peyton storms right up to Page’s desk and Page jumps up to his feet ready to defend himself from any attack that might be forthcoming.
Joey Peyton – “Page, if you even think of getting involved in tonight’s main event and helping out Mike Best, then god help you!”
Jon Page smirks at Peyton who tonight will fight Mike Best for the sVo World Heavyweight Championship belt and the Victory Cup in tonight’s main event.
Jon Page – “A little advice for you, don’t worry about what I am doing tonight, just keep your mind on what you are going to do tonight.”
Joey Peyton – “Oh I know exactly what I am going to do tonight. I am going to walk down to that ring in tonights main event, defeat Mike Best and claim what is rightfully mine, the sVo World Championship belt!”
Jon Page nods as Peyton and smiles.
Joey Peyton – “And anyone that even thinks of getting in my way will end up regretting it for the rest of their life!”

Eshan Aariz (c) vs. Spring Heeled Jack
The sVo Hardcore Championship is on the line as Spring Heeled Jack stares at the belt that is hanging from around the waist of his opponent, who is on the otherside of the ring warming up for their encounter which is only a few seconds away! The referee calls for the bell to ring and Spring Heeled Jack sprints towards Eshan Aariz who slowly makes his way out of the corner of the ring towards the center. Eshan Aariz ducks under the oncoming arm of Jack, and then manages to swing around and catch the challenger with a big boot to the face. Jack drops to the mat, and Eshan Aariz quickly peels the sVo Hardcore Championship belt from his waist and stands waiting for Spring Heeled Jack to rise up to his feet. Jack slowly makes his way up and Eshan Aariz springs into life, smashing the belt over the back of Jack’s head, which causes Spring Heeled Jack to fall over the top rope and to the outside of the ring!

As Spring Heeled Jack struggles up to his feet, Eshan Aariz sets up the table on the outside of the ring! Eshan Aariz grabs hold of Jack in the suplex position, however as he tries to lift the challenger up above his head, Spring Heeled Jack counters the move with a suplex of his own, which sends Eshan Aariz through the table at ringside!
The sVo Hardcore Champion looks in pain in the wreckage of the broken table, as Spring Heeled Jack makes the cover on his opponent.

Eshan Aariz clutches his face in pain as Spring Heeled Jack pulls the ring steps away from the side of the ring and then turns his attention back to the champion. Spring Heeled Jack pulls Eshan Aariz over the top of the ring steps and positions him for a piledriver! If Spring Heeled Jack piledrives Eshan Aariz onto the steel steps then it might be the end of his career let alone his Hardcore Championship reign!
Spring Heeled Jack attempts the piledriver on Eshan Aariz, but he is able to counter with a backdrop on Spring Heeled Jack, which sends him down on the unforgiving floor back first.

Still unbelievable to believe that Jack kicked out, Eshan Aariz locks Jack in position for a DDT! However before he can go for the move, Jack pushes Eshan Aariz back and the Hardcore Champion falls backwards off of the stage, ten feet to the unforgiving concrete floor below! Jack looks over the edge of the stage in disbelief at the Hardcore Champion who is laying out cold, before doing the unthinkable! Spring Heeled Jack motions to the crowd, before leaping off of the stage himself and landing on Eshan Aariz himself with a frog splash! Spring Heeled Jack looks to be out cold himself, but as he is laying on Eshan Aariz the referee makes the count!
We have a new Hardcore Champion, but does he even know he has won the belt? The referee looks down at the carnage below him as EMT’s rush out from the backstage area to check on the new sVo Hardcore Champion Spring Heeled Jack, and the former Champion Eshan Aariz!
RESULT: Spring Heeled Jack def. Eshan Aariz via pinfall

Jimmy Moretti is situated in his office having a conversation with Candi Cross when a knock at the door inturupts him.
Jimmy Moretti – “Come in!”

Johnny All Star – “What the hell have you done with J.D James?”
Johnny All Star snarls at Moretti as Candi Cross looks on in shock.

Burraca sprints at Johnny All Star and knocks the challenger for his title down with a straight clothesline.

Before the referee can count the three count, the music and entrance video of J.D James hits the arena and Johnny All Star leaps up to his feet.

No! To everyone’s surprise Johnny All Star manages to get a shoulder up off of the mat before the three can be counted! Burraca can’t believe it as Johnny All Star somehow is able to rise up to his feet after the shot to the face from the International Championship belt. Johnny All Star still seems to be reeling from the belt shot as Burraca throws the belt down on the floor in frustration before running at Johnny All Star. All Star ducks out of the way of the attempted clothesline from Burraca and somehow nails the champion with a ‘Touchdown’ onto his old championship belt! Burraca slams down onto the gold and All Star hooks the leg!
This one is all over and we have a brand new sVo International Champion on our hands! Johnny All Star grabs the belt from under the body of the former champion Burraca and holds it into the air in celebration! However as he looks up at the gold that is now his, All Star’s mind turns back to his manager, and the new International Champion makes his way out of the ring and back up the entrance ramp to find out what JD’s entrance music playing was all about.
RESULT: Johnny All Star def. Burraca via pinfall
Just moments before the main event, Michael Best can be seen making his way to the entrance ramp. He stops for a moment at a bench, to tie up his boots a little bit tighter, when sVo interviewer Candi Cross catches up with him.
Cross: Mike, do you have a second?
He looks up, a smirk on his face.
Best: Literally? Yes. What’s up?
Cross: I was just wondering, along with the fans at home I’m sure, how your relationship with the owners of Sanctioned Violence is going to affect your match tonight. Do you think they’ll be a factor.
Best: Look, Candi. If I’ve learned anything since I became a part of this business, it’s to always back up your back-up plan. I’m going out there tonight to wrestle Joey Peyton, and I can assume you that while anyone standing at ringside can have an impact on a match, tonight, it’s going to come down to me, a title, and a crying, shaking Joey Peyton going home empty handed.
Before he can continue, a muscular figure comes in between Mike and Candi. It’s Joey Peyton! The two just glare at eachother for a moment, until Mike chuckles, turns around, and heads for the entranceway.
With only moment to go until tonights main event which will see Mike Best take on Joey Peyton with not only the Victory Cup but the sVo World Heavyweight Championship belt on the line, we catch up with Jimmy Moretti who is walking through the corridors of the arena on his way towards the ringside area! Moretti looks in confident mood and will no doubt be trying to follow up on his promise to stop Mike Best from winning the sVo World Championship belt tonight! However as Moretti walks, he is suddenly struck from behind with a steel chair to the back of the head by an attacker just out of camera shot!
Moretti drops to the floor and the attacker drops the chair before sprinting off! Has Moretti just been taken out of the game, and if so who was it that took him out?

THE ULTIMATE VICTORY
Mike Best stands in the ring, hoisting his new belt over his head. Boos, catcalls and despite expectations a good number of cheers erupt throughout the arena. Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger thunders over the pa system. This tournament is over.
Suddenly, the champion is hit with a bucket of scummy green water. Within this aquatic assult, dozens of frogs slide down the champion’s now glistening body, many landing on his fallen opponent. The voices in the crowd range through shock into laughter and little pockets of outrage.
The champion glares out of the ring to where Spring-Heeled Jack stands atop the security wall, the bucket formerly containing the amphibians dangleing loosely from one hand. His other fist is wrapped around a microphone. A frightened frog croaks on the champ’s shoulder.
“Just a bit of public service for my two favorite godlings.” Jack grins up at the man holding the gold, “Since we’ve been getting all biblical this week, I thought I’d remind you what comes of worshiping gold. In fact, let me make a promise here and now.”
Up in the ring Mike Best spews unheard obcenities. Jack makes his vow: “I will bring down all of the plagues on you so long as you hold that title.” Jack grins a little broader. “Just to keep you humble.”
With the fluid grace of a hunting tiger, Mike drops and rolls out of the ring. In seconds he’s on his feet and bull rushing the man who has made a joke out of his victory. Jack brings down the bucket on the champion’s head. It’s not enough to damage him, but it buys the Jester a few seconds to vault the enraged Best and sprint up the ramp, laughing maniacally the whole way as Ultimate Victory draws to a close.
