As the video package finally comes to an end with an extended look at the ‘Proving Grounds’ 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 the HOTv network on PWA:TV to the broadcast and begin to break down some of the action that will take place on tonight’s show!

Breaks are Earned

[The night is alive with anticipation as Proving Grounds 18 approaches. The parking lot outside the arena is a hive of activity, with various talents arriving for the event. The unmistakable hum of Generation Joint’s tour bus signals the arrival of the popular faction. As the bus comes to a stop, the doors swing open, and members of Generation Joint—Kenneth D Williams, Jay Adder, Jacob Izaz, and Gunner Lang—step out, ready for another night of action.]

Kenneth D Williams: (grinning) Tonight’s gonna be lit, fellas. We got this!

Jay Adder: Absolutely, Kenneth. Proving Grounds is our playground.

[As the quartet makes their way towards the arena entrance, the atmosphere is unexpectedly disrupted as sVo COO Amy Page steps forward, a wicked grin on her face.]

Amy Page: Well, well, well, if it isn’t Generation Joint. Fancy meeting you here.

[Kenneth, Jay, Jacob, and Gunner exchange wary glances, sensing that trouble might be brewing.]

Jacob Izaz: What’s up, Amy? We ready to set this place on fire tonight!

Amy Page: Oh, you boys will be part of something special tonight, no doubt. But it’s not exactly what you have in mind.

[Amy Page takes a moment, savoring the suspense before delivering her announcement.]

Amy Page: You see, the punishments for your little escapades aren’t over yet. Tonight, you’ll be facing the Canadian Connection in a six-man tag team match.

[The expression on Generation Joint’s faces shifts from excitement to bewilderment.]

Gunner Lang: (raising an eyebrow) The Canadian Connection? Tonight?

Jay Adder: Come on, Amy What happened to giving us a break? You already put us through it last week, we get it.

[Amy Page chuckles, reveling in the discomfort she’s causing.]

Amy Page: Breaks are earned, gentlemen. As for tonight, consider it a continuation of the consequences for your actions. Enjoy the main event.

[Without waiting for a response, Amy Page turns on her heel and walks away, leaving Generation Joint to process the unexpected turn of events. The quartet exchanges concerned glances, realizing that they’ve just been handed a challenging task for the night. As the Proving Grounds arena looms in the background, the tension builds for what promises to be an eventful main event featuring Generation Joint against the Canadian Connection.]

One Step Closer

[Backstage at the sVo Proving Grounds 18, the atmosphere is charged with anticipation as Katie Smith stands ready with a microphone, waiting for an interview with Jupiter James. Jupiter, clad in her wrestling gear, approaches, a focused expression on her face.]

Katie Smith: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m here with Jupiter James, who is set to face Noah Rogan tonight at Proving Grounds. Jupiter, it’s been a while since we’ve seen you in action. What’s your mindset heading into this match?

[Jupiter James takes a moment, her eyes reflecting a steely determination.]

Jupiter James: Katie, it’s true. It’s been a bit since I’ve been in the spotlight, but tonight, that changes. Noah Rogan is a formidable opponent, no doubt about it. But I’m here to remind everyone why I’m a force to be reckoned with in the sVo.

Katie Smith: You’ve had your fair share of ups and downs in the sVo. What does this match mean for you in terms of getting back on track?

[Jupiter James nods, acknowledging the challenges she’s faced in her sVo journey.]

Jupiter James: Every match is an opportunity, Katie. Tonight, it’s about getting back to winning ways, about proving that I belong at the top of the sVo. I’ve faced setbacks, but setbacks are just setups for comebacks, and tonight, I plan on making a statement.

Katie Smith: The competition in the sVo is fierce. With a win tonight, where do you see yourself in the grand scheme of things?

[A confident smirk graces Jupiter’s face as she visualizes her path forward.]

Jupiter James: The sVo is all about climbing the ladder, Katie. With a win tonight, I’m one step closer to the top. I’ve got my eyes on the championship, and every match is a stepping stone to that goal. Noah Rogan, you’re just the next obstacle in my way.

[Jupiter James glances at the entrance ramp, her focus intensifying.]

Jupiter James: Tonight, it’s not just about beating Noah Rogan. It’s about sending a message to the entire locker room that Jupiter James is back, and she’s hungry for success.

[The camera fades as Jupiter James heads toward the curtain, ready to make her mark once again in the sVo Proving Grounds. The promise of a renewed journey echoes in her words, leaving the audience intrigued about the path that lies ahead for the determined competitor.]

A Spin of the Wheel

[Backstage in the chaotic hustle and bustle of the sVo Proving Grounds, Johnny Dorn, the reigning Roulette Champion, anxiously paces around, awaiting the revelation of his opponent for the night. The Roulette Wheel ominously stands nearby, ready to dictate the fate of his championship defense. Suddenly, sVo COO Amy Page, approaches with a sly smile on her face.]

Amy Page: Well, well, Johnny Dorn. Ready for another unpredictable night as Roulette Champion?

[Johnny Dorn, eyeing Amy warily, nods cautiously.]

Johnny Dorn: Yeah, yeah. Just tell me who I’m up against, Amy.

[Amy Page leans against the nearby wall, reveling in the opportunity to deliver unexpected news.]

Amy Page: Your opponent tonight is none other than Clam Idia.

[Johnny Dorn’s face contorts in disbelief and frustration, and he shoots Amy Page a piercing glare.]

Johnny Dorn: Clam Idia? Are you serious, Amy? Is this some kind of sick joke?

[Amy Page smirks, enjoying the discomfort she’s causing.]

Amy Page: Oh, Johnny, my dear champion. The Roulette Championship is all about surprises. Clam Idia may be an unconventional name, but who knows? He might just be the next big thing in the sVo.

[Johnny Dorn, growing increasingly agitated, clenches his fists.]

Johnny Dorn: This is ridiculous! I’m not defending my championship against some joke.

[Amy Page chuckles, reveling in the chaos she’s created.]

Amy Page: Oh, but you are, Johnny. Consider it a test of your adaptability. Clam Idia might just be the dark horse you never saw coming.

[Johnny Dorn scowls, clearly displeased with the situation, but Amy Page shows no sympathy.]

Amy Page: Embrace the unpredictability, Johnny. It’s what makes the sVo so thrilling. Who knows? Clam Idia might just pull off the upset of the century.

[As Amy Page strolls away, leaving Johnny Dorn fuming, the Roulette Championship stipulation adds another layer of uncertainty to the title defense. The sVo COO has orchestrated yet another twist in the tale, solidifying her reputation as a cunning heel pulling the strings from behind the scenes.]

Out of Time

[Backstage at sVo Proving Grounds 18, the Southern Boys—’Dastardly’ Dave Miller and ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams—stand together, frustration etched across their faces. Their manager, ‘Texas Cowgirl’ Haley Dallas, stands with them, ready to address the situation.]

‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams: Damn right, Dave. We had those boys beat. The time just ran out on us.

[Haley Dallas steps forward, a calm yet determined demeanor about her.]

[Dave Miller shakes his head, his frustration still palpable.]

‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller: We can’t let this slide, Haley. We need another shot at the Black Brothers, and we need it soon.

‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams: They know they lucked out with that time limit. We need to show them who the real force is in the tag team division.

[Haley Dallas holds up her hands, reassuring the Southern Boys.]

[A sense of determination replaces the frustration on the faces of the Southern Boys.]

[Haley Dallas nods confidently.]

‘Texas Cowgirl’ Haley Dallas: Trust me, boys. I’ve got your back. We’ll make sure the sVo Universe sees who the real powerhouse tag team is.

[As the Southern Boys share a nod among themselves, Haley Dallas walks away, ready to make good on her promise. The camera fades as the trio heads toward the next chapter in their quest for tag team supremacy in the sVo.]
