[JD James, his face red with embarrassment, stammers in response.]
JD James: [Nervously] I-I was just… I needed some… privacy.
[The Legends Club exchanges incredulous glances before Athena steps forward, her tone dripping with sarcasm.]
Athena: [Sarcastically] Of course, JD, privacy in a cupboard. Very professional.
[Curtis Knight sighs, clearly irritated but ready to state their demand.]
Curtis Knight: [Demanding] We want the main event changed, JD. We’re not facing Rigg, Jones, and Jackson. Make it happen.
[JD James, still flustered, finally shakes his head regretfully.]
JD James: [Reluctantly] I’m sorry, Curtis, but I can’t change the match at this point. It’s too late. The main event stays as scheduled.
[The Legends Club, now infuriated, exchanges frustrated glances, realizing that JD James is unable to fulfill their request.]

[Darwin Jones, known for his high IQ and resolve, doesn’t seem entirely on board with Rigg’s sentiment.]
Darwin Jones: [Determined] Stevie, I get where you’re coming from, but we’ve got a chance tonight to make a real impact. If we work together, we can weaken The Legends Club’s stranglehold on P:V. This shouldn’t be a one-time thing.
[Boyd Jackson, the powerhouse of the trio, steps forward, his imposing presence commanding attention.]
Boyd Jackson: [Calmly] Hold on, fellas. We’re all on the same side tonight, and we need to stay focused. Stevie, you’re right about putting egos aside, but Darwin’s got a point too. The Legends Club’s been a thorn in P:V’s side for too long. If we want to take them down, it’s gonna take more than one match.
[Stevie Rigg looks between his teammates, realizing the weight of their words.]
Stevie Rigg: [Reluctantly] Alright, alright. But after tonight, we reevaluate. We make sure we’re all on the same page before committing to anything long-term.
