We open to the VoW newsroom and sitting behind the news desk as per usual are VoW news reporters, Joey Nitro and Zelda Lawson. Graphics displaying their names appear below them as they both smile into the camera.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Nitro/Lawson Report with me, Joey Nitro and the ever lovely, Zelda Lawson. Tonight we shall be going over all the big news from Breakthrough edition thirty two and then we will be joined by our very special guest for this evening, the former two-time VoW Xcel Champion, Stacy Jones...
The camera then cuts to just Nitro and a graphic appears by his head displaying a still of Casanova English and “The Punisher” Matthew Robinson standing over a fallen Valquist.
Our first news story comes courtesy of our Main Event of Breakthrough thirty two that would see our very own World Visionary Champion, Valquist going one on one with The Orphanage’s own, “The Punisher” Matthew Robinson. It was truly an epic encounter just as everyone had predicted it to be, however unfortunately for Valquist and all the VoW faithful who were enjoying this amazing match, it would ultimately end in a disqualification victory for the champion after Casanova English would viciously assault Valquist when it seemed as if the Valiant one was on the verge of victory. I think I speak for every VoW fan when I say that it was a huge shame that we didn’t see a clean end to what was an amazing match between two highly talented athletes...
The camera cuts to Lawson as the graphic changes to a still of English smirking inside the ring with microphone in hand.
It certainly was an ending no one wanted to see, and we can only hope Valquist didn't receive any serious injuries following that attack by English. And speaking of our World Visionary Champion and The Orphanage leader, a tiny bit earlier before the Valquist-Robinson bout, we actually saw Casanova address the Compuware Arena crowd with a huge challenge. As many in the VoW world already know, English has been poking at The Valiant One to give him a shot at the World Visionary Championship, but we have now learned that The Orphanage's main guy wants more than just that as he has decided to issue a challenge to Valquist...AND Isis Derrida in a handicap match for the World title at Armed and Dangerous. To say that Casanova is mad with trying to prove his point may be an understatement, but I'm extremely interested now to see how Full Measures responds to this shocker challenge. I mean imagine the name English will make for himself if he actually won a 2-on-1 handicap to claim his 2nd World Visionary Championship...
Cutting back to Nitro, he nods in agreement before the graphic switches to English having his arm raised by the referee.
Definitely, although if anyone knows Casanova English, I’m sure his Orphanage cohorts won’t be far behind to give him a helping hand if Full Measures do indeed accept his challenge. Moving on but staying on topic of English, the Modern Day Messiah took part in a Triple Threat match against our very own Zero Gravity Champion, Cameron Behringer as well as my colleagues very own husband and I4NI Champion, Tyler Storm in an amazing back and forth contest. Going into the match, the VoW faithful were wondering how Storm’s arm would hold up in a match against two competitors who enjoy preying on a weakness and ultimately, unfortunately for Storm, his arm would result in his downfall as he would hit English with his patented Hybrid Strike but due to aggravating his injury, he wasn’t able to take advantage which eventually led to English’s victory. On top of that, to add insult to injury, after English’s victory, he would proceed to trap Storm’s arm by wrapping it around his throat before then giving him the English Lesson, doing further damage to the arm resulting in him being unable to compete at Breakthrough edition thirty three, I hope for one that your husband has a speedy recovery Zelda and that we see him back inside a VoW ring sooner rather than later...
Going back to Lawson, she nods as the graphic changes to one of a tired but happy Stacy Jones and Tyron Bickerton, an upset Ryder Blade, Brett Carson, and Steve Herring, and an emotionless Sky Sangue.
Well I can assure you Joey my husband has already started to continue his recovery practices and from what I can tell The Hybrid will be ready to go for the Armed and Dangerous Pay-Per-View. Now on to something unrelated from Mr. English but still very much important, another big match in the night that everyone was anticipating was the tag team contest featuring our DISRESPECTFUL guest from last week Xcel Champion Ryder Blade and Orphanage member Brett Carson taking on the team of Stacy Jones and Tyron Bickerton. The match, which if Stacy's team won would have earned the former Xcel Champion a shot at Ryder Blade and his title at Armed and Dangerous, featured a lot of clashing personalities in these unconventional teams and at points it was almost as if we would never see a winner. However, despite a last ditch effort towards the end by Stacy and Tyron, the surprise return and attack by good friend of Ryder, Steve Herring, ended up giving the Xcel Champ and Carson the victory. This, however, was not the end of the situation as an appearance by our lovely General Manager, Sky Sangue resulted in two big matches being announced for the Pay-Per-View. Due to the interference by Mr. Herring, who I imagine got a stern disciplinary action placed on him after the show, and to allow for a true chance to finish the match, Tyron Bickerton will get his rematch against Brett Carson. Not only that but, despite the loss, Stacy Jones will indeed get her shot at Ryder Blade and the chance to become a 3 time Xcel Champion at Armed and Dangerous. I have to tell you Joey, that match and everything that followed was certainly one heck of a roller coaster as a VoW viewer...
Again, the camera cuts to Nitro who again nods in agreement with his colleague as the graphic changes to depict himself standing in between Matthew Robinson and Seifer Black being held back by many fellow Visionaries.
A roller coaster indeed Zelda, I guess it all goes to show that if you continue to try and cheat the system, eventually you’ll suffer the consequences. Onto other news now and after it was announced on the last edition of Breakthrough that at Armed & Dangerous we will witness an I Quit match between Seifer Black and Matthew Robinson, The Punisher, not only cost Black the victory over his fellow Orphanage member, StuFish earlier in the night, but he would then proceed to mock The Archangel by dressing up as in and acting like him. As expected, Black would make his presence known and the two would take part in a massive brawl with one another that had to be broken up by their fellow Visionaries. The brawl would continue after the next contest backstage until I myself, made sure that the brawl was stopped, threatening to take action if neither man co-operated with my demands. As much as I know how badly these two men want to beat the Hell out of one another, as well as how much I know how badly the VoW faithful want to see them fight...I wasn’t going to allow this huge match at the Pay-Per-View be jeopardized, I know what their infamous I Quit match in NWA did for the company as a whole and I want the same thing to happen here, VoW could potentially become bigger and better than ever when this match takes place...trust me, I know...
The graphic changes over to Zakk Morris standing in the center of the ring as the camera cuts back to Lawson.
Well I for one have a lot of faith in the action you took Joey, the situation was very exciting to watch but I think saving this for Armed and Dangerous is gonna make the need to watch it worth the wait. Going back to our title pictures at the moment, it seems we finally have someone stepping up to challenge Cameron Behringer at the Pay-Per-View. Zakk Morris, one of our hot upstarts, laid down his claim for a shot at the Zero Gravity Championship. At this point with no one wanting to really take a stab at going after Behringer, I'd say Morris has a legitimate chance of getting his challenge accepted, but that's not to say it is exactly a wise decision for him to be going after the mentally unstable champion. One can only imagine what kind of punishment Cameron will do to Zakk, but for all we know we could see a huge upset that would shake the Zero Gravity division...
Cutting back to Nitro, he nods as the graphic changes to the official STRIKE! logo.
It certainly will be interesting to see, that’s for sure. Our next news story could be something that if agreed upon between Tyler Storm and Ms Sangue at Breakthrough thirty three, as a company, we could potentially see VoW grow even more in a short space of time. Our I4NI Champion, Tyler Storm approached our General Manager about having his own personal fitness and rehab group, known as STRIKE! who have recently joined forces with Xcel Energy, a major sponsor for VoW already, joining forces with VoW as well to help benefit both organizations in the long run. I’m sure Ms Sangue will make the right decision in agreeing with this idea as I strongly believe that this partnership between VoW and your husband’s company, Zelda, can only mean great things for all parties...
The camera again cuts back to Lawson as the graphic now shows a picture of a first aid symbol and a contract.
I can certainly agree with that, in a sort of biased way of course. My husband's company has been dedicated to the fitness and rehabilitation of people around the Southern United States ever since the transition from being a wrestling company, and to have a chance to be partnered with this great organization Tyler and I consider home now would be an amazing thing going forward for both VoW and STRIKE! Enterprises. And now, to wrap up our news we move to an injury update as well as a couple of signing Visionaries who made their presence known on Breakthrough. First, as we saw during the second contest of the night, Satoko suffered a serious right shoulder injury at the hands of Alec Rose after several hard contacts to the turnbuckle and the submission finisher which brought Rose a victory completely destroying the joint and surrounding muscle. With that, we are saddened to learn that Satoko has been ruled out indefinitely and on behalf of myself and Joey as well as the rest of the VoW roster, we wish Satoko well wishes in her recovery and hopefully one day will see her in a VoW ring again. And on a lighter note, during Breakthrough we also saw two of VoW's newest talents, Kincaid and Kevin "Slick" Williams, make their presence known during some great introductory segments. I am going to look forward to seeing these two men compete against each other this upcoming Breakthrough in the debut match of both Visionaries...
The camera cuts back to showing both Nitro and Lawson, the graphic disappears as Nitro gives one final nod directed towards Lawson.
As am I, and that’s all the news for this evening and now we move onto our special guest here in the studio, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome...former two-time Xcel Champion, Stacy Jones...
The camera pans out a little to reveal Stacy Jones sitting adjacent to Nitro, she smiles and nods toward both Nitro and Lawson.
Thank you for joining us Stacy, and I want to begin this interview with what took place at Breakthrough. It was needless to say, an up and down night for you, as you were unsuccessful in gaining the victory in your tag team match, with the stipulation being that if you were victorious, you would earn a shot at Ryder Blade for the Xcel title at Armed & Dangerous. However, due to in which the circumstances surrounding your loss were, VoW General Manager, Sky Sangue would announce that even though you weren’t victorious...you would still get your shot at the Pay-Per-View, your thoughts?
Jones lets out an elongated sigh and slightly clenches her right fist a little, trying to keep her composure before she manages to relax a little.
Well Joey, as grateful to Ms Sangue as I am for doing what I believe was the right thing in still giving me the opportunity at becoming a three-time Xcel Champion at Armed & Dangerous. I still would have preferred to have won the match...
A fake smile flashes across her face as she shakes her head.
I’ve been on a huge losing streak as of late, I mean yeah, I managed to defeat my ex-husband at Breakthrough thirty, but let’s be honest...he had me beat, I was just lucky that he wanted to try and end my career instead of just taking the victory, in turn that gave me the opening to take advantage and get the victory. But ever since I lost the Xcel title to Blade, I’ve been in a rut and with every loss I suffer, the more I continue to question myself, the more I question my abilities and the more I question my future here in the wrestling industry...
Lawson, with a bit of a strange tone to her voice, continues on.
Well Stacy, every now and then we find ourselves in a rut, whether it be your case with inside the ring, or general physical ruts, or even...emotional ruts. But we all get through them with a little positivity and honesty! Anyways, moving on, can you tell us how it was working with Tyron? He has been a very intriguing upstart here in VoW as of recent, and although he wasn't the most conventional partner in terms of how much styles of wrestling clashed with you guys, you two seemed to really get a good grip together. Could we see Mr. Bickerton in your corner as a tag partner again sometime in the future?
Jones gives Lawson a bit of a confused look, probably due to what she said before asking her question, however, being the professional she always has been, she chooses to ignore it and focus on the question.
It certainly was interesting teaming with someone like Tyron, it was nice to be around a man who actually has respect for me in this industry as there seem to be very few of those around today, obviously discounting my brother and your husband of course...and the man sitting beside you. As different as we were, I think we managed to make it work due to our equal hatred for our opponents, whether we will ever find ourselves teaming up again is another question though, I certainly wouldn’t say no to teaming with him again...
Well as we mentioned earlier, you now have the opportunity at Armed & Dangerous to become a three-time Xcel Champion. If you achieve this monumental accomplishment, you would most certainly be recognized as probably the greatest champion in VoW history. Does that put a burden on you at all? Does it put a lot of pressure on you? Going into this huge match...
Of course it does, if I manage to become a three-time Xcel Champion, I truly believe that it will help propel my career into something I never thought would ever happen. You’ve known me for many years Joey, you know how much blood, sweat and tears I pour into this industry...I love this sport...I love everything about it. And my one goal, the one thing I have never been able to achieve, is a World Championship. And I still stand by my promise that I made a few weeks ago, by the end of 2015...Stacy Jones will have been World Champion!
Lawson smiles as she looks through her notes.
Well I don't think anyone with a right mind would be upset at Stacy Jones being World Visionary Champion, maybe just my opinion but that's just how I see it. Stacy, another question many VoW fans have had their curiosity about is how well you have been doing since the situation between your protégé Katie Moicelle and your ex-fiancé Tayla. Now, obviously because of other things happening in your life I have been made very aware of how things have progressed, but do you care to share publicly about everything with the audience? Of course, not asking you to share anything too personal if you don't want to, but as a reporter I'm just trying to get the honest facts, even from my best pal.
A small giggle comes from Lawson as she says that.
Well...as it pertains to the situation between Katie and my ex-fiance, Tayla...I took my split with Tayla hard, it crushed me honestly, I loved her with all of my heart, hence why I proposed to her. Katie has always been there for me, even trying to help Tayla and I get back onto the same page, but it ultimately failed. As for now, all I will say is that Katie and I have been on several dates with one another, and that’s all I’m saying on the matter because quite frankly, one, I can’t speak on behalf of Katie because I don’t know what her feelings are towards me, and for me personally, I’m not entirely sure myself what my feelings are towards her...
Well I believe we have time for a couple more questions, and I just wanted to move away from the wrestling side of your life...and your personal life...and ask you about how things are going with the many charities and other things that you support, namely your #NoFearNoNegativity cancer fund charity that you started in memory of your biggest fan, Jenny McAllister, how are they all doing?
They’re doing amazingly well thank you Joey, I couldn’t have dreamed for a better start to the #NoFearNoNegativity charity, we managed to raise nearly quarter of a million dollars in just it’s opening month which is mind-blowing. I’m really having fun being a part of the Make A Wish foundation and the Be A Star campaign but I’m also involving myself a lot more in local LGBT events lately. Being a lesbian myself and spending my entire life being treated like some kind of freak because of my sexual preferences was a strong catalyst to why I decided to involve myself so heavily in this kind of stuff. And just overall, getting to spend time with some of my amazing fans, the way they show how much fight they all have in them, it really warms my heart to see...
Lawson's smile tends to look a bit more nervous as she looks at Jones before delivering the final question. She takes a bit of a breath, then goes on.
Well personally being able to see how strong you are with your support of the LGBT community with your Pride Center speech, I think many members of that community are happy to have you as such a strong voice. But...to move on to our last question...I mean you know as a friend I only want the best for someone who recently has been making my time here in VoW such an amazing one, and with me, honesty is just a big thing in life with any kind of relationship, whether that be with my husband or my best friend. So...
Lawson looks a bit scared as she seems to show signs of retracting her initial question.
Um...how did that interview go last week that you had to hurry off too? I mean...you just seemed a bit off from yourself and I was curious if maybe you were just nervous about this interview you had. I mean...
Lawson takes a deep breath again as she blurts out.
I mean you were even in such a hurry that you dropped this!
Lawson reaches into her pocket and pulls out a small, shiny object unable to be seen on camera, immediately shoving it towards Jones and into her hand. Lawson retracts quickly after placing it in her friend's palm, seeming a bit disappointed in how she acted and worded everything. Jones slowly opens her hand and looks down at the object and immediately closes her hand again when she realizes what it is. Without saying a single word, she quickly stands to her feet and hurries off camera, leaving Nitro and Lawson alone, Nitro completely confused about what is going on.
What the...Zelda, what’s going on?
Lawson's look stays very nervous as she looks to her broadcast partner, a tear noticed forming then falling from her eye.
I'm sorry Joey I...it was just...STACY WAIT! I CAN EXPLAIN I PROMISE!
Lawson launches out of her chair and goes running after Jones, leaving Nitro to tend to the show alone. Ever the professional, he straightens himself out and puts on his best smile, looking into the camera.
My apologies ladies and gentlemen, and that concludes this week’s edition of the Nitro/Lawson Report. Join us next week where we’ll be covering the latest news from Breakthrough edition thirty three as well as interviewing the VoW I4NI Champion, “The Hybrid” Tyler Storm. But until then, you’ve been watching the Nitro/Lawson Report with me, Joey Nitro and my broadcast colleague, Zelda Lawson, until next time...goodnight!
The camera slowly begins to pan away from Nitro who believes to be trying to find out some information on what just transpired as the scene fades.
