Post-Collision Course Wrap Up w/ Slaine Rodrick
[[After a mouse click, you’re taken to a youtube video. Three seconds of darkness pass before the signal clicks on. Sitting in front of a gold emblazoned marble desk is none other than the owner and CEO of Phoenix Wrestling, Slaine Rodrick. Hands folded, sly grin, teeth bleached. Italian grey three piece. He takes a sip of water from the 8 oz. crystal cup in front of him, using it to aid him in the clearing of his throat. Once clear, he looks into the camera and sets the glass down.]]
Rodrick: Thank you all for joining me in the Collision Course Wrap Up. There’s plenty to discuss tonight, so let’s cut right into it, shall we? I think it’s best to get to bad news first, so here it goes. Since Mark Cuban wants to play hardball, we’ve ended our relationship with HDNet. No longer will Explosion air, and with how embarrassing it’s been in the ratings, that’s not a big problem for us. This frees me up to make deals to bring in new talent. Which brings me to the PW Redemption newcomers...
[[An 80’ digital screen flicks on behind Rodrick. The faces of Keri Saunders, Emily D’ Amico, Smith Young, and Jason Scene take up even blocks, filling the screen.]]
Rodrick: Keri Saunders and Emily D’ Amico were so impressive in their dark match that I had to award them a spot on Redemption. Usually I like to dark match newcomers several times, just to see if they’re not flukes. But these girls definitely seem to be the real deal, and I can’t wait to see how they do on Redemption. Smith Young was an Explosion talent who I was considering putting on dark match duty. That is until he went out there and completely outclassed Casey Elliot. He deserves to face a step up in competition, so he gets the invite to Redemption as well. As for Jason Scene’s automatic Redemption invite? I have faith in him. He’s highly ranked, has a big reputation in other feds, and I feel he’ll do well here. How will all these incoming athletes fare? Tune in to Redemption 27 on May 31st to find out.
[[Those four squares transform into the faces of Dragon Demonico and Cobra.]]
Rodrick: There’s always a comeback at a pay per view. That’s just how it goes down. This time, we had two comebacks. Former PW mercenary Dragon Demonico made his grand return to action, as well as one of the brightest young talents in PW, Cobra. It’s my delight to have Cobra return, as I have opportunities just waiting for him. Demonico I’m sure will turn heads and be controversial as usual. They can’t all be good guys, but Demonico is quite entertaining at doing what he does.
[[From Demonico and Cobra we go to the faces of Black Rose, Jason Taylor, Jon Carlson, Chris Chaos, Kris Keebler, and Ja Gi Kyung-Moon.]]
Rodrick: It seems with every gain in talent we get, someone gets hurt. At Collision Course, five athletes were suspended, and one took paid time off. The exception being Chris Chaos. Black Rose is suspended for 30 days due to an arrest charge while she wasn’t competing. Jason Taylor is suspended for 30 days for a concussion, and attacking an official. Jon Carlson is suspended for 30 days with a concussion. Kris Keebler is suspended 14 days due to facial lacerations. Ja Gi Kyung-Moon is suspended for 14 days due to a low grade concussion. Moon and Keebler will be good to compete for Redemption 28, but the rest will be returning Redemption 29. I wish them all a speedy recovery.
[[The background on the TV changes from light blue to a fiery red. Appearing on the screen are Casey Elliot, Cecile Lecrux, and Demitrious Allen.]]
Rodrick: With the cutting of a show means the cutting of talent. Two of the more mediocre on the show Explosion, Casey Elliot and Demitrious Allen, are being released from their PW contracts. Cecile Lecrux has once again had family issues halt her career, so I’ve decided to release her from her contract so she can clear those issues up. Once she’s ready to return, I’ll consider her options. The others? Well, unemployment is their option.
[[The digital screen flicks off after that, and we’re brought back to the suntanned face of Slaine.]]
Rodrick: That covers the talent of PW. As for the shows, well, we’ve got quite a show for you folks on Redemption 27. During the ending of Collision Course, I announced the epic main event to take place at The Pit in Albuquerque, New Mexico on May 31st. Tj Jones will get a chance to use his extra tournament life to challenge Masaru Inoue for the PW World Title! The catch? No time limit. There WILL be a victor this time, mark my words. After two draws, I’m just as determined as them to find out who deserves that belt. Who will walk out of New Mexico the World Champ? Tune into Spike TV on May 31st to find out! This has been Slaine Rodrick, goodnight!
