The Underdogs

The camera opens in the dimly lit locker room of the Goodfellas Casino Arena. The atmosphere is a mix of anticipation and determination. CJ Dreamer, the seasoned veteran, is sitting on a bench, wrapping his hands methodically. Across from him, the young and eager ‘Underdog’ Ricky Johnson is lacing up his boots, his youthful energy palpable. The walls are adorned with wrestling memorabilia, a testament to the long and storied history of the sVo.

CJ Dreamer: (looking up with a reassuring smile) You ready for tonight, kid?

Ricky Johnson: (nodding eagerly) Yeah, CJ. I know we lost last week, but I’ve been working hard. I won’t let you down again.

CJ Dreamer: (standing up and walking over to Ricky, placing a hand on his shoulder) Listen, Ricky, it’s not about letting anyone down. It’s about learning and growing. Last week was tough, but we’re gonna turn it around tonight. The Southern Boys are no pushovers, but we’ve got the heart and the drive to take them down.

Ricky Johnson: (taking a deep breath) You’re right. I’ve been watching tapes of their matches all week. I know their moves, their tactics. We can do this.

CJ Dreamer: (grinning) That’s the spirit. We just need to stay focused and work as a team. The Scoundrels got us because we were out of sync. Tonight, we change that. We show everyone that we’re contenders for those International Tag Team Championships.

Ricky’s eyes light up at the mention of the championships, the ultimate prize that fuels his ambition.

Ricky Johnson: (with determination) We’re gonna prove ourselves, CJ. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll get our hands on those titles.

CJ Dreamer: (clapping Ricky on the back) That’s the attitude, kid. Remember, it’s not just about the titles. It’s about showing everyone, including Jupiter James, that we won’t be pushed around. We stand up for ourselves and each other.

Ricky Johnson: (fist clenched) I’m with you all the way. Jupiter James is gonna regret ever messing with us.

CJ Dreamer: (smirking) That’s what I like to hear. Now, let’s go out there and give the Southern Boys a fight they won’t forget.

The two wrestlers share a determined nod and head towards the locker room exit, ready to take on the night. The camera lingers for a moment on the sVo logo on the wall, a symbol of the battles fought and the dreams chased within these hallowed halls.

The scene fades out, transitioning back to the roaring crowd in the arena, ready for another thrilling night of sVo action.

Proving Grounds

The camera cuts to the locker room of the Canadian Connection, a space filled with an air of tension and curiosity. Ali Young, Scott Cole, and Jake Hughes, the core members of the group, are standing around, their faces a mix of skepticism and anticipation. In the center of the room stands Dylan MacLeod, looking slightly nervous but determined. The room is decorated with Canadian flags and memorabilia, a testament to their national pride.

Ali Young: (arms crossed, staring intently at Dylan) So, Dylan, you finally decided to show up. After weeks of rejecting us, you suddenly change your mind and help us out last week. Why the change of heart?

Scott Cole: (leaning against the lockers) Yeah, what gives, MacLeod? You’ve been all about going solo until now.

Jake Hughes: (nodding in agreement) We need to know we can trust you, kid.

Dylan MacLeod: (taking a deep breath, meeting their gazes) Look, I’ve been thinking a lot about what you guys said. I’ve seen what you can do together, how strong you are as a team. I realized that if I want to make a real impact here in sVo, I’m better off being with you than against you.

Ali Young raises an eyebrow, her expression skeptical but intrigued.

Ali Young: (stepping closer to Dylan) You’re saying all the right things, Dylan, but words aren’t enough. We need to know you’re serious about this.

Dylan MacLeod: (nodding earnestly) I am serious. I want to join the Canadian Connection. I want to prove that I can be a valuable member of this group.

Ali Young: (smirking slightly) Well, you’re in luck. We’re willing to give you a chance to prove yourself. But it’s not going to be easy. If you want to join us, you’re going to have to beat me in the main event tonight.

Dylan’s eyes widen slightly at the challenge, but he quickly nods, accepting the test.

Dylan MacLeod: (determined) I’ll do it. I’ll face you tonight and show you that I belong here.

Scott Cole: (grinning) This should be interesting.

Jake Hughes: (nodding) We’ll be watching closely, Dylan. Don’t disappoint us.

Ali Young steps back, giving Dylan a final scrutinizing look.

Ali Young: (firmly) Tonight, you either prove your worth or you’re out for good. Don’t think for a second that I’m going to go easy on you just because we’re from the same country.

Dylan MacLeod: (with resolve) I wouldn’t expect anything less.

The tension in the room remains high as the camera slowly pans out, capturing the determined expressions on the faces of the Canadian Connection members. The scene transitions back to the bustling arena, the anticipation for the main event growing among the crowd.

Jay Adder vs. Clam Idia


The camera cuts to the backstage interview area, where Katie Smith stands with a microphone in hand. Beside her is Jupiter James, who has a confident, almost defiant look on her face. The background is bustling with crew members and the sounds of the ongoing event, creating an atmosphere of anticipation and excitement.

Katie Smith: (smiling at the camera) Ladies and gentlemen, I’m here with Jupiter James, who has recently undergone a significant change in attitude, one that hasn’t exactly been well-received by the fans. Jupiter, can you tell us what’s behind this change?

Jupiter James: (smirking) Oh, Katie, it’s simple. The fans, they want me to stay a loser, to play nice like CJ Dreamer and Ricky Johnson. But I’m not here to make friends or to be anyone’s favorite underdog. I’m here to win.

Katie Smith: (raising an eyebrow) That’s a strong statement. What do you say to the fans who used to support you but are now disappointed with your actions?

Jupiter James: (laughing softly) Disappointed? Please. The fans don’t understand what it takes to be a winner. They’d rather see me flounder and fail, just so they can cheer and feel good about themselves. But I’m not here to cater to their whims. I’m here to dominate, to prove that I am the best.

Katie Smith: (nodding) You’ve targeted both CJ Dreamer and Ricky Johnson in recent weeks, both fan favorites. Is there a specific reason for that?

Jupiter James: (scoffing) CJ Dreamer and Ricky Johnson are nothing but stepping stones. Dreamer has been here forever and what does he have to show for it? And Ricky Johnson, he’s just a rookie, still wet behind the ears. They represent everything I refuse to be – content with mediocrity. I’m aiming higher, and if I have to step on them to reach the top, so be it.

Katie Smith: (leaning in) You mentioned winning gold in the sVo. Do you have your sights set on a particular championship?

Jupiter James: (smirking confidently) Oh, absolutely. I’m going to take whatever title I can get my hands on. It doesn’t matter which one. The fact is, I’m going to win gold, and I’m going to show everyone that I am the true star of sVo. The fans, the other wrestlers, they’ll all have to accept that I’m not here to be liked – I’m here to be the best.

Katie Smith: (nodding thoughtfully) Well, Jupiter, it sounds like you’re more determined than ever. Do you have any final words for the fans or your upcoming opponents?

Jupiter James: (staring directly into the camera) To the fans – get used to it. I’m not your hero, I’m your reality check. And to my opponents – watch your backs, because Jupiter James is coming for everything you hold dear. I’m done playing nice. It’s time to make my mark.

Katie Smith turns back to the camera, her expression a mix of intrigue and concern.

Katie Smith: (addressing the viewers) Strong words from Jupiter James. We’ll see how this new attitude plays out in the ring. Stay tuned, folks. Back to you at ringside.

The camera fades out, capturing the determined and fierce expression on Jupiter James’ face as the segment ends.

Main Event
Dylan MacLeod vs. Ali Young

Not Bad….

The crowd in the Goodfellas Casino Arena is buzzing with excitement as the main event concludes. Dylan MacLeod stands in the center of the ring, sweat pouring down his face, but a wide grin of satisfaction spreads across his features. The cheers from the audience are deafening, celebrating his hard-fought victory over Ali Young. Scott Cole and Jake Hughes, members of the Canadian Connection, climb into the ring, looking impressed yet cautious.

Julian Fiasco: (excitedly) What an incredible match, ladies and gentlemen! Dylan MacLeod has just pulled off a huge win over Ali Young!

Jeremiah Sloan: (nodding) This could be a game-changer for MacLeod. Let’s see what happens next.

Dylan MacLeod raises his arms in victory, soaking in the adulation of the fans. Scott Cole and Jake Hughes approach him, seemingly ready to welcome him into the Canadian Connection. But before they can say anything, Ali Young, still recovering from the match, grabs a microphone and steps forward.

Ali Young: (breathing heavily, but her voice steady) Dylan, that was… impressive. (She pauses, catching her breath.) But not impressive enough.

The crowd’s cheers turn to murmurs of confusion and anticipation. Dylan lowers his arms, his smile fading slightly as he turns to face Ali.

Ali Young: (continuing) If you really want to join the Canadian Connection, if you want to prove that you belong with us… you’ll have to beat me again next week.

The crowd reacts with a mix of gasps and cheers, realizing there’s more to come. Dylan looks puzzled but determined.

Ali Young: (smirking) But next time, it won’t be just any match. It will be… a submission match!

The arena erupts with a renewed wave of excitement. Dylan nods, his expression turning resolute as he accepts the challenge without hesitation.

Julian Fiasco: (surprised) A submission match? Ali Young, the former TapOut Champion, is pulling out all the stops!

Jeremiah Sloan: (agreeing) This will be a true test for Dylan MacLeod. Can he rise to the occasion again?

Scott Cole and Jake Hughes exchange glances, a mix of respect and curiosity evident on their faces. They step back, giving the moment to Dylan and Ali. Dylan grabs a microphone handed to him by a ring announcer.

Dylan MacLeod: (firmly) Ali, you’ve got yourself a deal. I’ll see you next week, and I’ll prove once and for all that I belong in the Canadian Connection!

The crowd roars in approval as Dylan drops the microphone, staring down Ali with unwavering determination. Ali smirks back, the tension between them palpable.

Julian Fiasco: (excitedly) There you have it, folks! Next week, Dylan MacLeod vs. Ali Young in a submission match!

Jeremiah Sloan: (nodding) The stakes couldn’t be higher. This will be a match you won’t want to miss!

The camera zooms in on Dylan’s intense expression, then cuts to Ali’s confident smirk, capturing the electric atmosphere as the show fades to black.
