sVo Sunday Night Showdown 140
Live on the HOTv Network on PWA:TV
Goodfellas Casino Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
13th November 2022
After the intro for the PWA, 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 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!
“Starts Right Here” by Foreign Air and Kenny Mason hits the sound system, and Big Aug leads BIG Trouble out to the top of the entrance ramp!
BIGBOSS Batts on the left dressed in a boss dark red suit. Big Kahuna Ali’i on the right, dressed in a swank fur coat, bare chest and jeans.
Standing in the center of both men on top of the ramp is the NEW sVo World Champion, ‘Big Aug’ August Lazar! Title proudly draped over his shoulder and wearing his new “CHOW TIME!” shirt and black and red pants, the crowd cheer sVo’s largest man as he bumps fists with his stablemates. Batts and Ali’i cheer their buddy as they have to work their way back to the #1 Contendership to the sVo Tag Titles later tonight. When they get inside, BIGBOSS Batts has the microphone and the music cuts as everyone’s favorite fighting food vlogger stands proudly with the title.
BIGBOSS Batts: “Las Vegas!”
The crowd pops!
BIGBOSS Batts: “Las Vegas, this is BIG Trouble Country! I am BIGBOSS Batts, one half of your NEXT sVo Tag Team Champions! And introducing your Secretary In Charge of Looking Fly AF… Big Kahuna Ali’i!”
Big Kahuna Ali: “Yep.”
BIGBOSS Batts: “But the time is now! You called for it! You were sick of William Voorheez being all “NEE NEE NEE NEE NEE NEE NEE NEE” and you cried out for a new champion… well…
He points up.
Big Aug: “sVo Wrestlings… you got it!”
A loud roar shoots up from the crowd, until Ali’i adds his two cents.
Big Kahuna Ali’i: “…Ain’t that the Halloween theme?”
BIGBOSS Batts: “Nah, Halloween Ends. We’re in November now. It’s voting month and we want YOU…”
He points doing his best Uncle Sam impression.
BIGBOSS Batts: “…to give it up for this big, handsome foodie and lend him your ears for a few words!”
Big Aug nods.
Big Aug: “sVo Wrestlings… thank you. Thank you for giving giant foodie with giant heart a giant chance in your promotion. You supported me as first Roulette Champion. You supported me as your King of Las Vegas! I did great things! I got ordained and dressed like Giant Elvis Presley to help drunk people get married! I held people’s place in line at slots! I helped your local escorts…”
BIGBOSS Batts: “No, you didn’t, that’s illegal and we’re on a live television show so we don’t admit to any wrongdoing.”
The crowd laughs while Ali’i rolls his eyes with a “speak for yourself” look. Big Aug continues.
Big Aug: “I won the Jackpot match to earn right to take on Voorheez. He screwed friends out of Tag Title shot. He tried to keep me away from title… but I do what any good wrestler in this business do. I stay hungry. Not just cause it bring good ratings for Da Big Aug Grub Vlog… but I not forget where I come from. I work ass off when I get to sVo to prove myself. Voorheez did everything he could to keep me down, but I not STAY down. And in the end… NO, NO, NO, NOT TODAY!
He holds up the title.
Big Aug: “I BECAME sVo WORLD CHAMPION!”
More cheers erupt as the Romanian-American continues.
Big Aug: “Like I did with Roulette Title and Las Vegas Title… I will be fighting champion! And when opponent enter this ring, they f*** around and find out that when Big Aug hungry… Big Aug take BITE out of their ass! I am Your Zest Friend! Your Boss of the Sauce! Mr. Spice Guy! For you ladies, I’m Hot and Spicy! I am One Giant Tasty Snack! For you people in this ring that want to take this title from me, I am The Man With The Iron Stomach. There’s nothing Big Aug can’t keep down and when you get into this ring with me…”
He holds the title.
Big Aug: “YOU GET BISCUITS WITH TWO PIECE CAUSE IT’S CHOW TIME!”
August Lazar raises the title overhead one more time with his friends in the ring. The trio takes their leave and starts to head to the back while celebrating with the people.
Tag Team Match
British Hospitality vs. The Southern Boys
The cameras head backstage to the locker room of Blood Money, where the Tag Team Champions Anthony Moretti & Joe Barone are standing by with Junior Gambino. Although the three members of the group are in attendance, conspicuous by his absence is former two time sVo Champion Johnny Moretti.
Anthony Moretti: “Ok, Junior, all on you tonight buddy. Time to show Alissia Young and the Canadian Connection what you are all about once and for all.”
Gambino nods confidently as Moretti shines up the Tag Team Championship belt on his shoulder and Joe Barone stands with his arms folded, looking menacing.
Junior Gambino: “Any word from Johnny? I haven’t heard from him since the PPV.”
Moretti and Gambino glance at each other, before shaking their heads.
Anthony Moretti: “I am sure he will be back in his own time, showing the world that the PPV match was just a fluke. For now, tonight is all about you Junior! Now get out there and show everyone what Blood Money is about!”
Gambino pumps his fist before high fiving Moretti & Gambino, before marching out of the locker room as the scene fades out.
Clam Idia vs. Gunner Lang
The cameras head to the backstage area and the interview pit, where Katie Smith is standing by with JVD and his wife Lucy Von Drake! The veteran JVD looks dressed and ready for battle as Katie Smith welcomes the fans.
Katie Smith: “Ladies and gentlemen, I am standing alongside the one man that stands between Bobby Dean and a shot at the sVo Championship belt! That is right, BBD has won nine in a row when defending the Roulette Championship, but his tenth challenger and man he must defeat to cash in for the Championship shot is James Von Drake!”
JVD nods to the camera as his wife hypes him up to the camera.
Katie Smith: “Now JVD, no one has ever made it to ten defences yet with the Roulette Championship. Can you stop BBD being that first man?”
JVD: “You are damn right I will. Now I know I have been a tag team competitor as of late, but lets not forget about my accomplishments in the sVo as a singles wrestler. Victory Cup winner, two time Las Vegas Champion, hell I have had as many shots at the sVo Championship as BBD has in his career!”
Lucy Von Drake continues to hype her husband up to the camera.
Katie Smith: “It will certainly be a case of two sVo household names clashing in the main event tonight. It has been a little while since you have been in a main event, any nerves?”
JVD laughs off the question.
JVD: “No nerves from me, it is BBD that has everything to lose tonight. I only have everything to gain, and what I will gain is the start of my own ten match streak towards a sVo Championship when I capture that Roulette Championship tonight!”
The scene fades out as JVD stares into the camera, sending a message to the Champion.

Roulette Championship Match
Bobby Dean (c) vs. James Von Drake
It’s all over and BBD has won it! The referee grabs the Roulette Championship belt and rolls back into the ring, before presenting it to BBD and raising his arm in the air in victory! BBD lifts the belt high into the air the fans cheer loudly, but as they do the boos suddenly begin as down the entrance ramp comes William Vorheez!
The former sVo Champion looks like he is making his way for BBD as he slides into the ring! BBD notices Vorheez coming, and ducks under an attempted clothesline from Vorheez before rolling out of the ring!
With the Roulette Championship belt in his grasp, BBD waddles up the entrance ramp, but only gets half way before finding his way blocked by Johnny Moretti! Moretti grabs BBD and runs him back down the entrance ramp before sliding him into the ring under the bottom rope!
BBD staggers to his feet in the ring, before Vorheez begins to lay into the Roulette Champion with some big right hands! The fans boo as Moretti rolls into the ring, and the two hated rivals take turns in nailing BBD with right hands!
Moretti and Vorheez knock BBD down to the mat, before staring each other down for a few seconds. It looks as if Vorheez and Moretti might go at it, but they seemingly put a pause to their rivalry with a nod of the head before stomping away on BBD!
The fans boo loudly, until suddenly the lights in the arena dip and “I’m Dreaming…..” hits the sound system! There is a big pop as down the entrance ramp comes Night!
The sVo legend climbs into the ring and dispatches Moretti and then Vorheez over the top rope with big clotheslines! The fans cheer loudly as BBD staggers up to his feet, with Night staring down Vorheez and Moretti as Showdown 140 goes off of the air!
