Goodfellas Casino Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
6th February 2022
The entrance video package for Sunday Night Showdown begins, accompanied by the theme song of ‘Showdown’ by Pendulum as highlights of past action from 2013 to present day are sped up, showing the likes of Bobby Dean, Roscoe Shame, Night, Jay Wildman, Cody Williams & Nathan Paradine. As the video package finally comes to an end with an extended look at the ‘Sunday Night Showdown’ 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 TV to the broadcast and begin to break down some of the action that will take place on tonight’s show!
Just like the opening of Showdown #119 two weeks ago, ‘Viva Las Vegas’ by Metal Elvis hits the sound system and the crowd boo loudly as the ‘Welcome to Las Vegas’ sign appears on the giant screen with the words ‘Blood Money’ spray painted over it. Pyros shoot up from both sides of the entrance ramp, and after a few seconds the man himself, Johnny ‘All-Star’ Moretti steps out onto the top of the entrance ramp and holds the big gold sVo Championship belt in the air!
All-Star makes his way through the pyros down towards the ring. All-Star salutes to the fans that boo him with a pair of middle fingers, as he climbs into the ring and jumps to the second rope of the nearest turnbuckle. All-Star throws his arms in the air and gets even more boos from his hometown fans as the music begins to fade out.
With the sVo Champion in the ring, Moretti grabs a microphone from Natasha Ortiz and holds the sVo Championship in the air as the fans boo loudly.
Johnny Moretti: “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome once again to another episode of anything Cody Williams can do, I can do better!”
More loud boos from the crowd, mixed in with a few ‘Cody, Cody’ chants.
Johnny Moretti: “Now whilst Cody Williams defend his title against people he knew he could beat, I have handpicked the most challenging opponents to cement my legacy as the greatest to ever hold this title! Now without further ado, let me present my challenger for this evening….. Greg STANLEEEEEYYYYYYY!”
There are more loud boos from the crowd, as the rookie Greg Stanley, who has made a few losing appearances on sVo Uprising before, slowly makes his way down the entrance ramp with no entrance music. Stanley climbs into the ring and warms up in the corner of the ring, as the referee passes his Championship belt to the referee.

The crowd boo loudly, but suddenly the arena goes pitch black as the opening guitar riff from “Abominator” by Doyle plays. Smoke billows up from the bottom of the staging area, as green laser lights dance across the stage. Just as the opening riff ends, two large hits of a drum can be heard, and pyro goes off syncing with them. The song dives in, as Vorheez makes his appearance at the top of the ramp.
The fans pop as the former two-time sVo Champion William Vorheez slowly walks down the entrance ramp, with his eyes firmly locked on the current sVo Champion! All Star pushes Stanley down to the mat, before turning and facing Vorheez in a fighting pose! The number one contender slowly walks to the ring, before climbing up onto the ring apron!

The fans boo loudly as All Star grabs his Championship belt from the timekeepers area, before rapidly making his way back up the entrance ramp!

The cameras head backstage from the commercial break, where Alissia Young of the Canadian Connection is standing by in the interview area, along with Katie Smith who has a microphone in hand. Both ladies stand in front of the ‘sVo’ branded background ready for their cue for the interview to get started.
Katie Smith: “Alissia Young, thanks for joining me here tonight. Now your partners Scott Cole and Jake Hughes face what might be the toughest title defend of their reign in the main event tonight as they defend the Tag Team Championships against the Black Brothers. How are you feeling about the chances of walking out with the belts tonight?”
Young looks offended by the question, as she snatches the microphone from Smith.
Alissia Young: “What kind of question is that? The Black Brothers have been good, but Jake Hughes and Scott Cole have been the most dominating champions in the history of the sVo tag team division! They have beaten everyone that have stepped to them so far, and the Black Brothers will be no different in tonight’s main event!”
Smith nods her head and reaches out her hand for the microphone to ask a follow up question, but Alissia Young waves her away with a flick of her hand before looking into the camera.
Alissia Young: “What I really wanted to say tonight is that I am pissed off! I am pissed off with the lack of competition from the rest of the women here on the sVo roster! I have beaten every single women so far, hell I even took Jupiter James one of the most popular out of action! I am embarrassed by the lack of competition so far, and unless someone steps up quick then I guess it’s time for me to start taking down a few more of the men here….”
Young slams the microphone into the chest of Katie Smith, before storming out of the camera shot as the scene fades out.

Anthony Moretti: “Hey brother, you were dominant out there tonight! You smashed that kid into the middle of next week!”

The fans cheer loudly for the mention of Gunner Lang.

The fans boo loudly as highlights of the match are shown on the giant screen.
Flip Dixon: “Now Bronson Johnson had to attack my dad from behind, just like every time he has gone against him he has attacked him from behind! Bronson Johnson doesn’t have what it takes to take on Gunner man on man, just like he doesn’t have what it takes to take on any member of our family one on one!

JD James: “Kid, are you serious?”

The crowd cheer for the Philly Flash as he flashes a smile to the camera whilst Smith kicks the interview off.
Katie Smith: “Jacob, thanks for joining me! Now you are only moments away from a match against Money Malone to determine the #1 contender for the Las Vegas Championship. How do you rate your chances tonight?”
Jacob Izaz: “Well as you well know, I took Malone on at Vendetta last year and dominated the match before being screwed by a terrible referring decision. Tonight, I right that wrong and get my third attempt at a fair one on one match for the Las Vegas Championship…. What is that saying about third time lucky?”
Katie Smith: “Well it is sure to be a great match, but do you think there is much chance of Blood Money getting involved tonight?”
Izaz smiles at the question.
Jacob Izaz: “There is always that chance but believe me when I say I am prepared for any eventuality tonight. I will win this match, I guarantee it!”
Katie Smith: “Well you are certainly confident and I wish you will in the match, but just before we let you go, what are your thoughts on El Froggo refusing to shake your hand last week after your match on Uprising? Is he still upset that you said he didn’t deserve the Las Vegas title shot a few weeks ago?”
Izaz shrugs his shoulders.
Jacob Izaz: “I guess that is a question you will have to ask that little Mexican punk. All I can say is that it was a bitch move in my view and proved me right!”
Izaz nods his head to signal that the interview is over, as the scene fades out.

Katie Smith: “CJ, CJ. Could I get your view on your match earlier before you leave?”
Dreamer doesn’t slow down as Katie Smith tries to catch up with him.
CJ Dreamer: “My view? I’m pretty pissed off with myself if I am honest Katie…. I came back to the sVo when it reopened in 2020 and thought I would be in the main event and sVo Champion by now considering what I have done in this business between 2013 and now. But ever since Seasons Beatings 2020 and coming up short in that triple threat match when Moretti won the title, I have never got close to getting to that level again…. Even my home town crowd wanted to boo my opponent more than me tonight…..”
Katie Smith: “Any comments for those fans?”
CJ Dreamer: “I feel like I should be man, but I honestly can’t blame them…. I need to go back and see what made me successful in 2013… Back to the drawing board Katie…. I can’t go on like this.”
Dreamer pushes through the arena doors and leaves Smith behind as the scene fades out.
