Katie Smith: (eagerly approaching) Well, well, Blood Money, what brings you gentlemen to the Goodfellas Casino Arena tonight? You’re not on the match card.
Anthony Moretti smirks, adjusting the lapel of his suit with a sense of superiority.
Anthony Moretti: Katie, sweetheart, we’re not here to compete tonight. We’re here for a more… observational role. You see, tonight marks the debut of Nicky Columbo, the protege of the legendary Johnny All Star.
Katie raises an eyebrow, intrigued by the revelation.
Katie Smith: So, you’re scouting the competition?
Junior Gambino: (nodding) That’s right, doll. We’ve heard the buzz about this kid, and we figured we’d get a closer look, assess his potential.
Joe Barone chuckles, contributing to the conversation.
Joe Barone: And let’s not forget, we’re the reigning Tag Team Champions. We can go wherever we please, whenever we please.
Anthony Moretti leans in, a devious glint in his eye.
Anthony Moretti: Besides, it’s always a good idea to keep tabs on the rising stars. You never know when they might become… useful.

Rick Reid, the enforcer at Amy’s beck and call, approaches the desk, his demeanor reflecting the air of confidence instilled in him by his recent victories.
Rick Reid: Amy. What’s on your mind?
Amy Page: (leaning back, steepling her fingers) Congratulations are in order, Rick. You did precisely what I expected of you last week. Bobby Dean is out of the equation for now.
Reid nods appreciatively, his eyes locked on Amy’s.
Rick Reid: That was just the beginning, Amy. I’m here to carry out your orders.
Amy Page: (leaning forward) I’m glad to hear that, Rick. But remember, the mission isn’t complete yet. Tonight, in the main event, you face William Vorheez. Take him out, Rick. Make it clear that anyone who stands in our way will suffer the consequences.
Rick Reid smirks, an ominous glint in his eyes.
Rick Reid: Vorheez won’t know what hit him. And after that?
Amy Page: (leaning back, a wicked grin forming) After that, Rick, you set your sights on the ultimate prize—the sVo Championship. Night holds it now, but it won’t be long before it’s in our hands. Keep climbing the ladder, and remember, I reward loyalty handsomely.
With a nod of acknowledgment, Rick Reid exits the office, leaving Amy Page to revel in the unfolding machinations of her grand design. The air is charged with anticipation as the pieces on the chessboard move according to her orchestrated plan.

Just as it seems a confrontation is inevitable, Anthony Moretti, the leader of Blood Money, smirks and unexpectedly signals for his comrades to stand down. Confusion washes over the faces of both All Star and Nicky Columbo as Blood Money, instead of attacking, retreats and leaves the ring.
Anthony Moretti: (smirking, addressing All Star and Columbo) Not today, fellas. Enjoy your little victory.
The enigmatic decision by Blood Money to spare their potential adversaries leaves the crowd buzzing with speculation. Moretti, Gambino, and Barone vanish into the shadows, leaving behind a perplexed All Star and Columbo in the ring.

One More Run

William, tonight you face Rick Reid in the main event, and there seems to be a lot of speculation regarding Amy Page’s intentions toward the legends of the sVo. What are your thoughts on your match and Amy Page’s actions?
Vorheez, a stoic figure with years of experience etched into his features, takes a moment to collect his thoughts before responding.
William Vorheez: Katie, tonight, I step into the ring with Rick Reid. Now, Reid, he’s a formidable opponent, no doubt about it. But there’s something you need to understand about me, about us legends. We’ve been through it all. We’ve faced the best, and we’ve emerged as champions. Amy Page might want us out, but she forgets what made the sVo what it is today.
Vorheez’s eyes gleam with determination as he continues.
William Vorheez: I’ve faced adversity my entire career, and tonight won’t be any different. Amy might think it’s time for the old guard to step aside, but I’ve got one more run left in me, Katie. I know it, and deep down, Amy Page knows it too. So, Rick Reid, be prepared. Tonight, you’re not just facing William Vorheez; you’re facing a legacy, a history that won’t be erased so easily.
Katie nods in understanding as Vorheez’s words echo through the backstage area, setting the stage for the impending clash between the seasoned veteran and the ambitious Rick Reid in the night’s main event.

The atmosphere in Amy Page’s office is tense as Haley Dallas, the manager of the Southern Boys, enters. Amy, engrossed in her work, looks up with a raised eyebrow.
Amy Page: (leaning back in her chair) Well, well, what brings you to my office, Haley?
Haley Dallas: (with determination) Amy, last week the Southern Boys took care of business. We laid the smackdown on the Starr Brothers, and we did it convincingly. I think it’s high time we get what we deserve – a shot at those Tag Team titles.
Amy Page smirks, her fingers tapping rhythmically on her desk.
Amy Page: Oh, Haley, you and your Southern Boys keep knocking on my door, asking for another opportunity. But let’s not forget, I’ve given you chances before, and it always seems to end the same way – with your boys coming up short.
Haley takes a step forward, her eyes locked onto Amy’s.
Haley Dallas: This time is different, Amy. We’ve got their number. We proved it last week, and we’re ready to prove it again.
Amy Page leans forward, studying Haley with a contemplative expression.
Amy Page: (smirking) You’re confident, I’ll give you that. Fine, Haley. You want another shot at the Tag Team titles? Prove it. Win your match next week on Showdown, and then we’ll talk about Seasons Beatings. But remember, actions speak louder than words.
With that, Haley Dallas nods, showing a determined look. She turns on her heels and exits the office, leaving Amy Page to her plotting and planning for the upcoming sVo events.

Nicky Columbo: (raising an eyebrow) Johnny, why do you think Blood Money didn’t attack us earlier? It’s not like them to pass up an opportunity.
Johnny All Star, a veteran of the sVo, crosses his arms and leans against a nearby crate. His eyes narrow as he contemplates the question.
Johnny All Star: Kid, I’ve been around the block in this business more times than I can count. Blood Money didn’t just decide to play nice tonight. There’s always an angle with those guys.
Columbo, still learning the ropes, looks puzzled.
Nicky Columbo: So, what’s their angle?
All Star sighs, his mistrust of Blood Money evident in his demeanor.
Johnny All Star: That’s the million-dollar question, Nicky. We’ve had our run-ins with them before. They kicked me out of the group a while back, and I’ve never been one to trust ’em. We need to be on our guard. You never know when they’ll strike.
Columbo absorbs the advice, a mix of determination and uncertainty on his face.
Nicky Columbo: I hear you, Johnny. I don’t trust them either. We’ll watch our backs.
As the two wrestlers exchange a nod, the backstage area remains fraught with intrigue. The uneasy alliance between Johnny All Star and Nicky Columbo sets the stage for a potential clash with Blood Money, a group known for their cunning and calculated moves.

Katie Smith stands backstage, ready to interview the sVo Champion Night just moments before the main event. The champion, Night, looks focused and determined, his championship belt slung over his shoulder.
Katie Smith: (smiling) Night, can I get a quick word the main event match tonight?
Night: (nodding) Of course, Katie. What’s on your mind?
Katie Smith: Well, Night, you’ve been the sVo Champion for quite a while now, and there’s been a lot of speculation about who might be next in line to challenge you. In particular, Rick Reid, who won the Roulette Championship and the Jackpot Rumble, hasn’t made his intentions clear. Do you have any thoughts on that?
Night: (smirking) Rick Reid, huh? He’s been making waves, no doubt. It’s surprising he hasn’t come forward yet, considering his recent accomplishments. But let me make something clear, Katie. I’m not one to back down from a challenge. If Rick Reid wants a shot at this title, all he has to do is step up. The door is wide open.
Katie Smith: Interesting. And, speaking of challenges, do you have any plans for your next title defense?
Night: (grinning) Well, Katie, let me make an announcement right here and now. Next week on Showdown, I’m throwing out an open challenge to anyone in the sVo locker room that hasn’t had a shot before. If someone thinks they’ve got what it takes to step up to the plate, I’ll be waiting in the ring.
Katie Smith: A bold move! We’ll be sure to tune in next week to see who answers that challenge.
As Night walks away, the anticipation for the open challenge intensifies, leaving the sVo fans curious about who will step up to face the reigning champion.

Rick Reid: (smirking) Another legend down. I told you all, one by one, the old guard will crumble in the wake of the Rick Reid era.
The boos intensify as Reid revels in the disdain of the audience.
Rick Reid: Now, onto more pressing matters. Night, my friend, you hold that sVo Championship with pride. And I’ve got my sights set on it, don’t you worry. But, you see, I’m a man of strategy. I want the perfect moment, the perfect stage, to strip you of that title and make it mine.
The fans voice their displeasure as Reid pauses, soaking in the negative energy.
