sVo Uprising #003
Goodfellas Casino Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
7th November 2021
The entrance video package for Uprising begins, accompanied by the theme song of ‘Uprising’ by Artificial Intelligence 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 ‘Uprising’ 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 that will feature non-stop in-ring action from the future stars of the sVo!
‘Welcome To Toronto’ by K Money hits the sound system, and there are loud boos from the crowd as onto the top of the entrance ramp steps Alissia Young, Jake Hughes & Scott Cole of the Canadian Connection! Young signals to the crowd, before slowly walking down the entrance ramp bopping her head to the music. Cole & Hughes roll into the ring under the bottom rope before climbing to the second rope and staring out at the crowd with their arms folded, before jumping down as Alissia Young grabs a microphone as the music fades out.
Alissia Young: “Last week on Showdown, we stood out here in this ring and laid out a challenge to any team in the world to come and take a shot at the sVo Tag Team Championship belts….”
The fans boo loudly as Hughes & Cole hold the belts in the air.
Alissia Young: “But here we are standing out here on our own! It seems that no tag team in the world wants to step to the best tag team in the world!”
The fans continue to boo loudly, but suddenly “Going out in Style” by the Dropkick Murphy’s hits the sound system and there is a cheer as the arena is basked in a green glow. After a few seconds Tom Flynn & Sean O’Grady, collectively known as the Shamrocks, step out onto the top of the entrance ramp and raises their arms in the air to acknowledge the crowd!
The Canadian Connection look surprised by the arrival of the Shamrocks, but quickly call for a referee to get in the ring and it looks like we are going to start the night off with a Tag Team Championship match!
Flynn cracks his knuckles at the top of the entrance ramp whilst O’Grady hypes up the crowd, before the pair march down to the ring and climb in, ready to fight!

The cameras head backstage after the big tag team championship match, where Absolute Zero is standing by with Katie Smith in the interview area! Katie Smith has a microphone in hand as they both stand against the sVo branded back drop.
Katie Smith: “Absolute Zero, thanks for joining us here tonight. Now we understand that straight after Showdown last week you went straight to Jon Page’s office and demanded a rematch against Big Aug tonight on Uprising! What made you ask for the rematch and do you think the result will be any different tonight?”
The usually easy going Absolute Zero glares at Katie Smith as he answers the question.
Absolute Zero: “I asked for the rematch because I need to correct the fluke result that was last week on Showdown. Big Aug is a nobody, a rookie, someone that won’t even be in the sVo after I embarrass him out there in the ring tonight….”
Katie Smith: “Well he did….”
Absolute Zero: “Wait, I haven’t finished answering your question yet, don’t interrupt me…”
Zero glares at Katie Smith who looks a little uneasy at the change in attitude from the veteran.
Absolute Zero: “You asked me why I think the result will be any different tonight? I think the result will be different because I have been in this industry for fifteen years and Big Aug has been here for fifteen minutes. Tonight, I send that big rookie back to Brazen where he belongs…”
Smith starts to ask a follow up question, but Zero holds a hand up to signal that the interview is over, before storming off of camera shot. Katie Smith shrugs her shoulders towards the camera as the scene fades out.
Absolute Zero is certainly not happy about losing a match he was so confident of winning last week, but can he get the job done this week against the impressive Big Aug?
