The Champ is Here
[The camera shifts to the exterior of the Stratford Arena, capturing the arrival of the DW Heavyweight Champion, Jean-Louis Duval. The luxurious car pulls up, and Duval steps out, exuding an air of confidence and arrogance. William Smith, the intrepid interviewer, seizes the opportunity to catch a word with the champion.]
William Smith: Jean-Louis Duval! Quick word, if I may. Last week, Kral and Yutaka failed to secure a victory against British Hospitality despite you being in their corner. Any thoughts on that?
Jean-Louis Duval: [Smirking] Ah, Smith, always ready with the probing questions. It’s quite simple, really. If you want something done right, you do it yourself. I shouldn’t have to hold their hands through every match.
[Duval brushes off Smith’s question, clearly dismissive of the notion that he bears any responsibility for the outcome.]
William Smith: But, Jean-Louis, as their champion—
Jean-Louis Duval: [Interrupting] As their champion, I’ve got my own battles to focus on. If Kral and Yutaka can’t handle British Hospitality, that’s their problem. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have more pressing matters to attend to.
[Duval casually walks away, leaving Smith standing there, the dismissal evident on the champion’s face. The aura of indifference from Duval adds a layer of intrigue to his mindset as he heads into another night of ‘DW Clash.’]
A Rising Sun
[In the bustling backstage area of DW Clash, Emily Shaw, Riley Smith, and Leo Lewis are gathered, buzzing with excitement, discussing the breaking news about Jon Page’s venture into Japan with ‘Rising Sun Pro Wrestling.’]
Emily Shaw: Can you believe it? Jon Page is opening a new promotion in Japan! ‘Rising Sun Pro Wrestling’ is going to be huge!
Riley Smith: Absolutely! It’s fantastic news for the wrestling world. Japan is a hotbed for talent, and with Jon Page at the helm, it could be a big success.
Leo Lewis: I wonder who he’ll sign for the roster. This could open up some incredible opportunities.
[Their excitement fills the air, but it suddenly comes to a halt as DW General Manager Matt Anarchy walks by, catching wind of their conversation.]
Matt Anarchy: ‘Rising Sun Pro Wrestling,’ huh? Interesting chatter you’ve got going on here.
[The trio exchanges uncertain glances as Anarchy raises an eyebrow, clearly intrigued.]
Emily Shaw: Uh, yeah, Mr. Anarchy. Just talking about the wrestling world and all the exciting developments.
Matt Anarchy: ‘Rising Sun Pro Wrestling’ is certainly going to make waves. I certainly saw Amy Page’s reaction to it last night on sVo Showdown. Me, I prefer to take a different approach – Keep your ears open for any potential cross-promotional opportunities.
[Anarchy walks away, leaving the three wrestlers in a mixture of excitement and uncertainty.]
Riley Smith: That was unexpected. Cross-promotional opportunities, huh?
Leo Lewis: Well, it’s definitely a new chapter for the wrestling industry. Let’s see where this takes us.
[The trio resumes their conversation, but the air now carries a sense of anticipation for what the future may hold with the emergence of ‘Rising Sun Pro Wrestling.’]
[The camera cuts to the exterior of the Stratford Arena as a sleek black car pulls up to the entrance. The door opens, and Yutaka steps out, his stoic expression replaced by an intense glare. The silent Japanese assassin looks visibly angry as he heads towards the arena, catching the attention of both fans and the backstage crew.]
Steve Pringle: Folks, we’ve got a sight here. Yutaka, the usually calm and collected competitor, looks like a storm is brewing inside him.
Eddie Bates: That’s right, Steve. I’ve never seen Yutaka with such a fierce demeanor. Something’s definitely on his mind.
[As Yutaka strides purposefully towards the entrance, the speculation grows among the announcers.]
Steve Pringle: The big question is, what’s got Yutaka in such a foul mood? We’ve seen him dominate in the ring, but this level of intensity is unusual.
Eddie Bates: It could be anything, Steve. Maybe a personal matter, or perhaps he’s got his eyes set on something big here in DW.
[The speculation continues as Yutaka disappears into the arena, leaving the announcers and the audience intrigued about what might unfold later in the evening.]
Roddy King vs Leo Lewis
Paint The Town Red
[The backstage area is abuzz with activity as the camera focuses on William Smith, the interviewer, standing ready with the microphone. Geoffrey Hobbs, the gentlemen English wrestler, steps into the frame, looking composed and ready for his upcoming match against the formidable Angus Blackhart.]
William Smith: Geoffrey Hobbs, tonight you’re set to face Angus Blackhart, a powerhouse with a reputation for—
Geoffrey Hobbs: [Interrupting, but maintaining his gentlemanly demeanor] William, my good man, it’s always a pleasure to engage in a battle of wits before a match. Angus Blackhart is undoubtedly a formidable opponent, but I believe in the virtues of fair play and skill. Tonight, the ring shall be a canvas where elegance meets strength.
[Before Hobbs can continue, the unmistakable presence of Angus Blackhart interrupts the interview. The Scottish powerhouse steps into the scene, his intense gaze fixed on Hobbs.]
Angus Blackhart: Geoffrey, save your words for the ring. I’ve no interest in these interviews. The canvas you talk about? I’ll paint it red with your blood.
[Blackhart glares at Hobbs, a silent declaration that he prefers to settle matters in the ring rather than engaging in verbal sparring.]
Geoffrey Hobbs: Well, Angus, I do admire a man who lets his actions speak louder than words. Let’s let the ring be the judge of our mettle.
[With a nod of agreement, Blackhart leaves the scene, and Hobbs watches him go, the anticipation for their impending clash evident in the air.]
One Step Closer
[The camera shifts to the buzzing locker room of British Hospitality, where Harry Black, Alexander Hate, and Kyle McRae gather to discuss the upcoming one-on-one clash between McRae and Union Jack. The atmosphere is charged with camaraderie and determination.]
Harry Black: Kyle, tonight’s your night, mate. Union Jack is tough, no doubt, but you’ve got the skill to take him down.
Alexander Hate: And remember, we’ve got your back. If Duval tries any of his dirty tricks, we’ll be right there to even the odds.
Kyle McRae: Cheers, lads. This is my chance to show everyone I’m ready for that DW Heavyweight Championship. But Union Jack’s no pushover.
[The camaraderie within British Hospitality is palpable as they share words of encouragement.]
Harry Black: We’ve seen you overcome tougher challenges, Kyle. Tonight won’t be any different. Just stay focused, and remember, we’re a team.
Alexander Hate: Duval might think he can play games, but we’re not letting anyone mess with our chances. We’re going to make a statement tonight.
Kyle McRae: Damn right, we are. Thanks, lads. Let’s do this together.
[The trio shares a firm handshake, their unity evident. As the locker room door closes behind them, British Hospitality heads toward the ring, ready to face whatever challenges ‘DW Clash’ throws their way.]
Geoffrey Hobbs vs Angus Blackhart
[The Stratford Arena is buzzing with tension as the aftermath of the intense clash between Geoffrey Hobbs and Angus Blackhart unfolds in the ring. Blackhart emerges victorious, but instead of basking in the moment, the Scottish powerhouse decides to make a statement.]
[The referee checks on the fallen Hobbs, who’s visibly exhausted from the grueling contest. Instead of extending a hand in sportsmanship, Angus Blackhart seizes the opportunity to assert his dominance.]
[With a menacing glare, Blackhart grabs Hobbs and delivers an emphatic powerbomb, shaking the ring and leaving the English gentleman writhing in pain. The fans, once cheering for the contest, are now showering Blackhart with boos as he continues his relentless assault.]
[The referee pleads with Blackhart to relent, but the Scottish powerhouse is undeterred. He hoists Hobbs up once more, delivering a devastating spinebuster that echoes through the arena. Hobbs lies broken and battered, a stark contrast to the poised gentleman who entered the ring earlier.]
[As Blackhart stands tall, a chorus of boos rains down upon him. Unfazed, he raises his arms in a defiant gesture, reveling in the disdain of the crowd. The Stratford Arena is filled with a mix of shock and disapproval as Blackhart exits the ring, leaving behind a fallen Geoffrey Hobbs.]
[The message is clear—Angus Blackhart is a force to be reckoned with, unapologetically ruthless in his pursuit of dominance in ‘Dynasty Wrestling.’]
Loud & Clear
[In the dimly lit locker room of Angelo Anderson and Stijn De Raaf, the two wrestlers huddle together, deep in discussion about their strategy for the impending main event. The tension in the room is palpable as they devise a plan to deal with their adversaries, Kandi Sparks and Ben Noble.]
Angelo Anderson: Stijn, we need to be on the same page tonight. Sparks and Noble won’t know what hit them.
Stijn De Raaf: Agreed, Angelo. We dismantle them piece by piece, and by the end of the night, they’ll wish they never crossed our paths.
[As they finalize their tactics, the door creaks open, and the unsuspecting William Smith, armed with a microphone, attempts to step into the strategizing zone.]
William Smith: Gentlemen, do you have a moment for a quick—
Angelo Anderson: [Interrupting, glaring at Smith] This is a private conversation, Smith. You don’t barge into our business.
Stijn De Raaf: Leave, now. We’ve got work to do.
[Smith, caught off guard, stumbles backward, realizing he might have overstepped.]
William Smith: I… I just thought the fans would want to know your thoughts—
Angelo Anderson: [Cutting him off] They’ll hear our thoughts loud and clear in the ring. Now get out before we decide to teach you a lesson.
[With a dismissive wave, Anderson and De Raaf gesture for Smith to leave. Reluctantly, Smith retreats from the locker room, leaving the wrestlers to finalize their plans in private.]
[The door slams shut behind Smith, leaving the locker room enveloped in an air of secrecy as Anderson and De Raaf prepare for the upcoming main event.]
A Former Friend?
[The opulent locker room of Jean-Louis Duval emanates an air of regality, adorned with championship belts and memorabilia. Duval, focused on his preparation for the main event, adjusts his wrist tape when the atmosphere is disrupted by an unexpected intrusion.]
[Without warning, Yutaka bursts into the room, a determined look on his face. He spots the DW Heavyweight Championship, glinting in the corner, and strides purposefully toward it. Without uttering a word, he snatches the title from its perch and turns to face Duval.]
Jean-Louis Duval: [Surprised, he speaks in French] Qu’est-ce que tu fais ici? What are you doing here?
[Yutaka remains silent, his expression stoic. Instead, he holds the championship in front of Duval, a clear statement of his intentions.]
Jean-Louis Duval: [Growing more agitated, still speaking in French] Réponds-moi! Answer me!
[Yutaka doesn’t respond verbally. Instead, he hurls the DW Heavyweight Championship at Duval, the impact resonating through the room. Without a word, Yutaka exits the locker room, leaving Duval bewildered and fuming.]
[The camera lingers on Duval, staring at the discarded championship, as the enigmatic Yutaka departs, leaving behind an air of uncertainty and anticipation for the main event.]
Kyle McRae vs Union Jack
Main Event Time
[In the backstage interview area, William Smith stands ready with his microphone as Ben Noble and Kandi Sparks, both determined and focused, approach for a pre-main event interview.]
William Smith: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m here with Ben Noble and Kandi Sparks, who are moments away from the main event where you’ll face Angelo Anderson and Stijn De Raaf. What are your thoughts going into this match?
Ben Noble: Smith, tonight is about payback. Anderson and De Raaf have been running their mouths for too long. It’s time they face the consequences of their actions.
Kandi Sparks: Absolutely. They think they can throw their weight around, but we’re here to show them that they don’t intimidate us. We’re ready to take them down.
William Smith: Your opponents seem to be strategizing heavily for this match. How do you plan to counter that?
Ben Noble: We’ve been watching them just as closely. We know their tricks, and we’re not falling for them. Tonight, they’ll find out what happens when you mess with the wrong people.
Kandi Sparks: Anderson, De Raaf, you can plan all you want, but nothing can prepare you for the beating you’re about to receive. We’re not holding back.
William Smith: It sounds like you’re both ready for a fight. Any final words before heading to the ring?
Ben Noble: Anderson, De Raaf, get ready for a lesson in humility. You’ve poked the bear, and now you’re going to feel the consequences.
Kandi Sparks: This is our time to shine. Get ready for a beating, because they are about to learn a lesson they won’t forget.
[The intensity in the air is palpable as Noble and Sparks exchange determined glances, ready to make their way to the ring for the explosive main event.]
[In the dimly lit backstage area, a dejected Roddy King sits on a bench, catching his breath after a tough match. Suddenly, the imposing figure of Aleksandr Bortsov approaches, his massive frame casting a shadow over King.]
Aleksandr Bortsov: [In a thick Russian accent] Well, well, if it isn’t Roddy King, the man who can’t seem to win a match. What do you have to say for yourself, loser?
Roddy King: Look, I had a tough match tonight. It doesn’t mean anything.
Aleksandr Bortsov: Tough match? You call that a match? You’re disgrace to wrestling.
[King, sensing the tension, tries to stand his ground, but Bortsov’s expression darkens.]
Roddy King: Listen, I don’t need this from you right now.
Aleksandr Bortsov: [Snarling] You think you can talk back to me, Roddy King? You are nothing!
[Without warning, Bortsov grabs King and delivers a brutal series of punches, overpowering him with his sheer strength. The backstage area echoes with the sounds of the assault as Bortsov makes his disdain for King painfully clear.]
[As the attack continues, Bortsov leaves King battered and bruised on the cold floor, a warning to anyone who dares cross paths with the intimidating Russian powerhouse.]

Matt Anarchy: Ladies and gentlemen, there has been a lot going on in the world of wrestling this week! We have new promotions starting in Japan under the Sanctioned Violence banner, so it’s more important than ever to me that we make the world know that Dynasty Wrestling is the hottest ticket in town, and we stay ahead of the competition!

[The crowd erupts in anticipation as the prospect of a new championship hangs in the air.]
Matt Anarchy: Now, I know you’re all excited about this…..
[Before Anarchy can finish his sentence, Jean-Louis Duval’s theme hits, and the boos rain down as the DW Heavyweight Champion makes his way to the ring, a smug look on his face.]
Jean-Louis Duval: Anarchy, what’s this about a new championship? You might as well hand it to me now. I’ve been carrying this company on my back!
[The boos intensify as Duval arrogantly demands the new title.]
Matt Anarchy: Hold on, Duval. You’ve got a bit ahead of yourself, I haven’t actually finished delivering all of my news….. You see, next week on DW Clash, we’re going to have a main event that will determine who faces you at ‘Collision Course’ for the DW Heavyweight Championship.
[The crowd buzzes with excitement at the revelation.]
Matt Anarchy: Kyle McRae has been snapping at your heels for weeks now to get a shot, but you seem to want to hold him down at every opportunity? And then we have Mr Yutuka, it seems you made quite the enemy of your former ally with your actions after the main event last week…. So on DW Clash next week, It’s going to be Kyle McRae versus Yutaka! The winner of that match will step into the ring with you at ‘Collision Course’ for the DW Heavyweight Championship.
[Duval’s smug demeanor turns into a tantrum, and he starts throwing a fit in French as the camera fades out, leaving the fans eagerly anticipating the explosive main event next week.]
