Julian Fiasco: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the hottest ticket in Las Vegas tonight! We’re live from the Goodfellas Casino Arena for another explosive edition of sVo Showdown!
The crowd erupts with cheers as Jeremiah Sloan chimes in.
Jeremiah Sloan: That’s right, Julian! Tonight is a night you don’t want to miss. We’ve got a stacked card, headlined by our sVo Champion Night defending his title against Bronson Martinez!
Julian Fiasco: And let’s not forget the ongoing war between Johnny All Star and Blood Money. What’s going to happen next in this intense rivalry?

The lights flash, and the crowd’s anticipation reaches a fever pitch as the camera fades to black, signaling the start of another thrilling episode.
Katie Smith stands near the entrance of the arena, microphone in hand, as the sleek black limousine pulls up. The crowd buzzes with speculation as the car door opens, and out steps Blood Money—Anthony Moretti, Junior Gambino, and Joe Barone, all impeccably dressed in sharp suits.
Katie Smith: Blood Money, a quick word before you head into the arena? Are you here to keep an eye on Nicky Columbo again?
Anthony Moretti smirks, exchanging glances with his partners, but remains tight-lipped. Junior Gambino adjusts his cufflinks, and Joe Barone stares at the camera with a stoic expression.
Anthony Moretti: Katie, my dear, we’re here for business. Whether that involves Mr. Columbo or not is our concern. You know how it is, always keeping an eye on things, making sure the sVo remains a well-oiled machine.
Katie persists with a follow-up question, but Moretti raises a hand to stop her.
Anthony Moretti: No more questions, Katie. We have matters to attend to. You’ll see Blood Money where we need to be, and that’s all you need to know.
With that, Blood Money confidently walks past Katie Smith, leaving her with more questions than answers. The crowd watches in anticipation as the trio heads into the arena, leaving an air of mystery in their wake.
End of the Line?
The arena is dimly lit, and the hushed murmur of the crowd fills the air as William Vorheez, a two-time sVo Champion, makes his way to the ring. He carries an air of contemplation, as if burdened by the weight of recent events. Vorheez steps into the squared circle, microphone in hand, and the fans wait in anticipation for his words.
William Vorheez: Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve stood in this ring many times, and tonight, I stand before you with a heavy heart. Last week, I faced Rick Reid, a formidable opponent, and the result… well, it wasn’t in my favor.
The fans offer a respectful acknowledgment, knowing they may be witnessing a momentous occasion.
William Vorheez: In this business, you face highs and lows. Victories and defeats. You forge bonds, and you break them. I’ve had my fair share of triumphs, and I’ve faced my demons. Tonight, I stand here, looking back at a storied career, and I can’t help but think about what’s next.
As Vorheez contemplates his future, the arena is suddenly filled with the abrasive sound of Trailer Trash Terry’s entrance music. The crowd reacts with a mixture of surprise and anticipation as Trailer Trash Terry makes his way to the ring, wearing a sly grin.
Trailer Trash Terry: Well, well, well, if it ain’t ol’ William Vorheez, looking all mopey and sentimental. What’s the matter, Vorheez, feeling the weight of age on those aging shoulders?
Vorheez narrows his eyes, clearly not in the mood for Terry’s taunts.
William Vorheez: Save the insults, Terry. I’ve had enough of the games.
Terry chuckles, circling the ring as he continues to goad Vorheez.
Trailer Trash Terry: Come on, Vorheez, don’t be so touchy. I heard you contemplating your future, and I couldn’t help but think, I can’t let you go out without stepping into the ring with me! Why not end your storied career with a bang? How about you and me, one last dance, at Seasons Beatings?
The crowd stirs with excitement, sensing the potential for an epic showdown between the seasoned veteran and the unapologetic Trailer Trash Terry.
William Vorheez: You want a match, Terry? You got it. Seasons Beatings, you and me. But let me make one thing clear, I don’t know if it will be the end for me or not, but win or lose, I’ll leave that arena with my head held high.
Terry grins, reveling in the challenge he’s just laid down.
Trailer Trash Terry: You better bring your A-game, Vorheez, ’cause I plan on giving you the fight of your life. Seasons Beatings, it’s a date.
With the challenge accepted, Trailer Trash Terry makes his exit, leaving Vorheez alone in the ring. The fans buzz with anticipation for the clash between these two contrasting personalities at the upcoming pay-per-view.

Johnny All Star: Nicky, my man! Tonight’s the night you show everyone what you’re made of. But listen up, we gotta be smart about this.
Nicky nods, a determined look in his eyes.
Nicky Columbo: I’m ready, Johnny. Whatever it takes.
Johnny All Star places a hand on Nicky’s shoulder, looking around cautiously.
Johnny All Star: That’s the spirit. Now, you’re stepping in there against Hiro Ryuu, a crafty guy. Keep an eye on his strikes, and don’t let him catch you off guard. You’re quick—use that to your advantage.
Nicky listens intently, absorbing the advice.
Nicky Columbo: Got it, Johnny. Quick and sharp.
Johnny All Star smirks, but then his expression turns serious.
Johnny All Star: One more thing, kid. Blood Money’s in the building. They might be lurking around, waiting for a chance to strike. We can’t let our guard down.
Nicky Columbo’s eyes narrow, a fire burning within.
Nicky Columbo: Blood Money? I’ve been waiting for a chance to take them down.
Johnny All Star: Easy, kid. We’ll get our shot, but tonight, focus on Ryuu. I’ll watch your back, and you do your thing in the ring.
The two share a nod of understanding before Nicky heads toward the entrance, ready for his match, and Johnny All Star keeps a vigilant eye on the surroundings, wary of any potential threat.
New Signing? Pt.1
The camera transitions backstage to the office of Amy Page, the COO of the sVo. The room is adorned with subtle hints of authority, and Amy sits behind her desk, engrossed in some paperwork. The door creaks open, and in strides Rick Reid, a cocky smirk on his face.
Rick Reid: Amy, my favorite person in the whole damn company. You catch that little drama session out there with Vorheez and Trailer Trash Terry?
Amy glances up from her paperwork, looking unimpressed with Reid’s presence.
Amy Page: I can’t say I did, Rick. I’ve been preoccupied with more important matters. Something you might want to consider.
Reid leans against a nearby wall, intrigued.
Rick Reid: More important than the potential demise of a has-been legend like Vorheez? Now I’m intrigued. What’s got your attention, Amy?
Page smirks, enjoying keeping Reid in suspense.
Amy Page: Well, I’m awaiting the arrival of someone significant tonight. A big name in the wrestling world who’s considering joining the sVo.
Reid’s interest piques, and he straightens up, a mix of curiosity and skepticism on his face.
Rick Reid: Big name, huh? You gonna spill the beans, or are you gonna keep me hanging?
Amy Page: Patience, Rick. You’ll find out soon enough. In the meantime, maybe you should focus less on Vorheez and more on what is going to happen in the main event with Night and his title tonight.
With that, Amy returns her attention to her paperwork, leaving Rick Reid to ponder the potential arrival of a new star in the sVo.

Bronson glances up, acknowledging their presence but remaining focused.
Bronson Martinez: What do you want, Carny?
Carny Sinclair: Just here to wish you luck, my friend. Last night on Proving Grounds, things got a little heated, didn’t they? Thought I’d remind you that we don’t forget, Bronson.
Reznikov smirks menacingly, looming silently beside Carny.
Bronson Martinez: (grinning) Heated? Yeah, that’s one way to put it. But let me make something clear, Carny. Tonight, my focus is on Night and the sVo Championship. After I’m done there, you and Reznikov can get all the attention you want.

Tonight, we make a statement!
Dave and Dan exchange determined nods, understanding the significance of the opportunity in front of them.
