Give me Rigg
[Backstage at P:V Uprising 55, the atmosphere is tense as Darwin Jones, the highly intelligent and determined competitor, marches towards the office of P:V COO JD James. Jones is on a mission, seeking retribution for the unexpected betrayal by Stevie Rigg in the previous episode.]
[Darwin Jones knocks on the door, and JD James looks up from his work, acknowledging Jones’s presence.]
JD James: [Curious] Darwin, what can I do for you?
[Darwin Jones, visibly perturbed, gets straight to the point.]
Darwin Jones: [Assertively] JD, I need a match tonight against Stevie Rigg. After what he did last week, I can’t let that slide. I want him in the main event.
[JD James, understanding the gravity of the situation, sighs.]
JD James: [Regretfully] Darwin, I get it, but Boyd Jackson has already been in here, demanding a match against Stevie Rigg tonight. The main event is set, and I can’t change that.
[Darwin Jones, frustrated by the news, clenches his fists.]
Darwin Jones: [Angrily] This isn’t fair, JD! Rigg blindsided me last week, and now he’s getting away with it?
[JD James leans back in his chair, trying to explain the situation.]
JD James: [Sympathetic] Look, I understand your frustration, but I’ve got to keep things fair and balanced around here. Boyd Jackson wants a shot at Rigg, and I’ve already agreed to it. I can’t change the main event on short notice.
[Darwin Jones takes a deep breath, clearly disappointed but realizing the constraints JD James is under.]
Darwin Jones: [Resigned] Fine, JD. But this isn’t over. I’ll deal with Stevie Rigg one way or another.

[James Mendoza, focused and determined, looks directly into the camera.]
James Mendoza: [Confidently] Elena, tonight, I step into the ring with Puck, and I’ve got one goal in mind – victory. Puck’s a talented competitor, no doubt, but when it comes down to it, I’ve got the skills and the heart to come out on top.
[Elena Cruz nods, eager to dig deeper into Mendoza’s mindset.]
Elena Cruz: [Inquisitive] Fair enough, James. But let’s talk about Brandon Snyder. There’s been quite a bit of tension between you two lately. How do you plan to deal with him, especially considering your match against Puck tonight?
[James Mendoza smirks, acknowledging the ongoing rivalry.]
James Mendoza: [Defiantly] Brandon Snyder, he’s been a thorn in my side, but tonight, my focus is on Puck. As for Snyder, he better keep his distance. I’ve got a score to settle with him, and it’s only a matter of time before he realizes that.
[Elena Cruz raises an eyebrow, sensing the intensity in Mendoza’s words.]
Elena Cruz: [Curious] So, are you saying we might see a confrontation between you and Snyder tonight?
[James Mendoza smirks again, leaving the possibility hanging in the air.]

[Boyd Jackson, a formidable presence, raises a calming hand, ready to explain.]
Boyd Jackson: [Calmly] Darwin, hear me out. I get why you’re upset, and trust me, I wanted that match too. But Rigg screwed us both over last week. He turned his back on the alliance we had against The Legends Club. We both deserve a shot at him.
[Darwin Jones narrows his eyes, absorbing Boyd’s words.]
Darwin Jones: [Skeptical] So, what? You think you’re the only one who deserves to face Rigg?
[Boyd Jackson shakes his head, emphasizing unity.]
