sVo Uprising 18
Goodfellas Casino Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
4th May 2022
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!
The Victory Cup
The camera heads backstage to the office of Jon Page, where the sVo Owner is sitting behind his desk wearing a customary dark suit whilst facing into the camera. On top of the desk and slightly off center of the camera shot sits the sVo Victory Cup.
Jon Page: “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to sVo Uprising!”
There is a cheer from the fans watching on the giant screen in the arena.
Jon Page: “After last Sunday’s massive PPV, it would be easy to kick back and take a few weeks off, but things just keep rolling here and we look to the future! With Roll the Dice in the history books, the next PPV on the horizon is ‘Ultimate Victory’, and that only means one thing here in the sVo!”
Page looks at the massive cup sitting on his desk.
Jon Page: “That’s right, the Victory Cup starts right here tonight on Uprising with some qualifying matches from those who didn’t quite make the cut into the 16! The prize at the end of it is obvious, the glory of being crowned the winner of the Victory Cup winner of 2022, like the likes of Mike Best, JVD & Gunner Lang have achieved in years gone by, as well as a shot at the sVo Championship!”
The fans cheer again as a small highlight reel of past winners is played, before cutting back to Page behind his desk.
Jon Page: “May the best man…. Or woman…. WIN!”

“Trouble Coming” by Royal Blood starts to play and one by one, the members of the newest group within sVo start to come out. As the music kicks in, the camera cuts to a pre-set red carpet in the ring. Four sets of red balloon columns are set up on each corner of the ring.
BIGBOSS Batts first, standing at five-foot eight (though he’ll say he’s five-foot-GREAT!) dressed in a red leather jacket, black jeans and red-tinted sunglasses. He applauds the reception from the fans and stands to the left of the entrance.
BIG Kahuna Ali’i, the best-dressed big man in sVo. The agile Hawaiian comes out with a lot of swag on his own in a bright red business suit. His long is tied in a ponytail behind him and he eggs the crowd on for more cheers. He stands to the right of the entrance.
Then towering over them is the brand new sVo Las Vegas Champion, BIG Aug Lazar! Wearing a red dress shirt and black dress pants, the Romanian-born giant raises his title to cheers from the crowd. The trio known as BIG Trouble heads to the ring, but it’s BIG Aug getting the most reception as the giant rookie recently captured the title! BIGBOSS Batts enters the ring first, then Ali’i and finally, Big Aug as he steps over the ropes and then holds up the Las Vegas Championship for the world to see. When the music fades out, Big Aug has a microphone.
BIG Aug: “Wow… It been several days since Big Aug win this title… Big Aug went and rolled died at Roll The Dice… and unlike bullshit roulette tables… still unreal… but to you, sVo Wrestlings… thank you for supporting dream come true! I am Las Vegas Champion!”
The crowd cheers while BIGBOSS Batts grabs a microphone.
BIGBOSS Batts: “YOU DESERVE IT… YOU DESERVE IT… YOU DESERVE IT…”
In between breaths, BIG Kahuna Ali’i claps, which gets the crowd to join in. Big Aug looks a little taken aback by the response.
BIG Aug: “Thank you, Boss! Thank you, Ali’i! You know how to make young giant man with mildly successful food vlog feel special! Thank you!”
The crowd laughs while BIGBOSS Batts continues.
BIGBOSS Batts: “S! V! O! LAS VEGAS! WELCOME… TO BIG TROUBLE COUNTRY! AND WELCOME… TO THE BIG-ASS CELEBRATION!”
Another chorus of cheers as Batts walks over to slap BIG Kahuna Ali’i on the arm.
BIGBOSS Batts: “I… am BIGBOSS Batts and while you see a man who stands 5’8”, I assure you among these fine monsters, I stand FIVE-FOOT-GREAT! I am the master of BIG Trouble Country, BIGBOSS Batts! Next to me is our beloved president, BIG Kahuna Ali’i”
The BIG Kahuna salutes the crowd.
BIGBOSS Batts: “And the big guy behind he… that’s who our celebration is about tonight! Your NEW sVo Las Vegas Champion, BIG! AUG! LAZAR!”
More cheers for the big man!
BIGBOSS Batts: “In the opener of Roll The Dice 2022, myself and the BIG Kahuna here put this tag team division on notice! We’re coming for the sVo Tag Team Championships held by those LITTLE MEN, Ding and Dong Black. And then…”
BIG Kahuna Ali’i stops the BIGBOSS of BIG Trouble and whispers in his ear. When BIGBOSS realizes his mistake, he points.
BIGBOSS Batts: “Sorry. Igor and Frankenfurter Black, WE COMIN’ FOR YOU! We got…”
Another pause and whisper from BIG Kahuna Ali’i to correct him.
BIGBOSS Batts: “Mr. President, thank you… Boris and Natasha Black, we’re hunting for those belts and we don’t care if you’re backed by William Vorheez, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, Pennywise, whatever the hell that thing was in the Paranormal Activity… those ! But that’s for another night. Right now, this moment belongs to BIG Trouble’s Secretary In Charge of Throwing Down!”
The 7’4” champion nods.
BIG Aug: “Thank you again, Boss! Thank you! It been several months since I duck underneath the doors of sVo to fit inside this great organization! People who put me in matches be like “Augie, you big as f**k! But can you be success?” I answer question by winning the first-ever sVo Roulette Tournament to become King of The Roulette Tables! I lose all damn money betting on black when I should have bet on red, but I won Roulette Title!”
He then looks to the newly acquired title.
BIG Aug: “I lose title to Absolute Zero after his fourth time fighting me, but I bounce back! Fast forward to Roll Dice… I win this title! Kenneth D Williams was great fighting champion, but I want to take title and go even higher! I not settle as King of Roulette Table that rob me of my money! I want to represent sVo proudly as the King of ALL Las Vegas!”
He points to the crowd.
BIG Aug: “I want to do great things with title and defend against anyone who want title shot! I will be proud representative of this great tourist attraction called Vegas! People all around world! If bullshit slot machine take money… BIG Aug be there to kick machine over and share its coins with masses! If bullshit roulette machine take money like it take mine… BIG Aug be like Superman to spin shit table backwards, turn back time and give you back money! If you’re young newlywed couple looking to elope quietly and hopefully avoid family, BIG Aug newly ordained! Five dollars online and I have no shame will dress like Elvis to marry you today! If you expensive hooker looking for new clients… we…”
BIGBOSS Batts: “Nope, nope, nope, not legal, nope.”
BIG Aug: “WHATEVER… I SAY BE BEST HOOKER EVER! REPRESENT LAS VEGAS PROUDLY!”
A loud cheer rises up from the male contingent of the crowd.
BIG Aug: “OR BE BEST DAMN ESCORT YOU CAN BE! REPRESENT LAS VEGAS PROUDLY!”
Now loud cheer rises up from the women as this segment has clearly gone off the rails.
BIG Aug: “As King of Las Vegas, my royal proclamation be this… kick ass! Defend title! Do previous things I talk about! And make BIG Trouble the best stable in sVo! Thank you!”
“Trouble Coming” plays out BIG Trouble! August Lazar raises the championship one more time for everyone to see before the trio take their leave.

The camera heads backstage, once again to the office of Jon Page where the sVo Owner is busy working away on a laptop sitting on his desk. There is a knock on the door, before it quickly swings open and in storms his younger sister, Amy Page.
Amy Page: “You can’t be serious?”
The sVo Owner looks confused as he stares up at his sister.
Amy Page: “You are putting Scott into a qualifying match? This must be some kind of mistake? After all he has achieved here in the sVo?”
Jon Page continues to look confused.
Jon Page: “Look, I know you represent him and all, but my recollection of what he has achieved here in the sVo seems like it must be wildly different to yours?”
Amy Page: “Now I know you are joking! He is a former sVo Tag Team Champion! One of the most dangerous men on the roster!”
Jon Page: “He won the Tag Team title nearly ten years ago now! As far as most dangerous men on the roster, I’m not sure he has been showing that recently? Look, I know we are family and all, but Malone and McRae both lost at the PPV and they had to qualify…. Frankly he is only getting the chance to even qualify in this because you are my sister…..”
Amy looks outraged as she shakes her head and begins to storm towards the door.
Amy Page: “You are making a big mistake and Dallas Jordan is going to pay the price for it in the main event tonight! I hope you are prepared to cover his medical bills!”
Amy Page disappears out of the room as Jon Page shakes his head in disbelief.
