October 19th, 11:05 PM EDT Air Canada Centre - Toronto, Ontario, Canada
The atmosphere is electric at the Air Canada Centre. Backstage, wrestlers and staff members alike are abuzz over the announcement made minutes ago by 'Low Down' Barton Massey - that he was vacating his International Championship in exchange for an opportunity at Shio Corin's World Heavyweight Championship next week. All eyes are on the now-former International Champion as he emerges through the curtain.
Always in search of the next big scoop, Lola 'Cupcake' Sparkle prances after Massey, planning to capture some juicy soundbites for her followers on social media.
"Barton, sweetie! Wait up!"
Not to be outdone, Terry Kohl springs into action, hoping to score an exclusive interview for the Vindication post-show.
"Barton Massey! Barton! 'Low Down'!"
Massey ignores both of them and keeps walking. He makes his way to Beast Jackson, startling "The Monster" by putting an arm around him.
"Oh! It's you, kid. I'm waiting for the Double Double delivery guy to bring my chicken. He's late."
"Walk with me, mate."
Beast pulls out his phone and starts recording as he and Massey walk the corridors of the Air Canada Centre.
"Didn't feel like talking to those young pups tonight, eh, kid?"
"I don't feel like answering the same daft questions they ask every week. In fact, I don't feel like answering questions. I'll talk. You record. Play it back on your podcast."
"Easy enough. We're rolling."
"You're talking to the 'King of Wednesday Nights'! Vindication has been on Wednesday night for the last four weeks. Four weeks, going on five, Barton Massey has been the main event. And each and every single week, I get the job done, and keep you all talking! That's just gotta be eating at Nigel. Two months ago, he was planning my demise, and now I've turned his flagship program into a showcase for my 'Barrier Block Conspiracy'."
"I won't lie, he's been pretty hot about it in the weekly production meetings."
Massey lets out a hearty laugh.
"Thought so. It's only gonna get worse, Beast. Not only have I taken over Vindication on Wednesday nights, but I'm about to send Macabre Massacre to pieces! Nigel's going to have a hell of a time selling a pay-per-view with no title matches."
Beast slows to an immediate halt.
"Wait - what are you talking about?"
"It's 'phase two', mate. First, I made sure Jensen's shot at the International Championship at Macabre Massacre vanished into thin air. I've been saying for weeks that he doesn't deserve another title shot. I've lost count of how many times I've beaten him now, and then he went and lost to a newcomer last week! Even so, Nigel was hellbent on moving forward with the match, so I did something about it. Jensen signed on the dotted line to face 'Low Down' - but I don't have an International Championship to defend!"
Beast shakes his head.
"Deserving or not, he is the number one contender. He'll get his shot, eventually. You and I both know that Nigel will make sure of that."
"That may be, but it won't be on my time. And that's not even the best thing I've got in store!"
"I'm not sure I want to hear it. That last bit was low, even for you. How do you top that?"
"Like this. I've humiliated Drew Murdock over the last few weeks. Not only have I shown that he's a man of flesh and blood like the rest of us - I made him submit in the middle of the ring! I made him consciously choose to give up instead of fighting on. But I'm not stopping there, Beast. Talk about an undeserving contender - how could Nigel possibly justify giving him a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship, in the main event of Macabre Massacre? Well, he won't have to. Much like Jensen, Murdock also signed a contract to face a specific opponent, one who won't make it to the pay-per-view with a championship to defend."
Beast strokes his chin, mouth slightly agape.
"You really planned this whole thing out, right down to the smallest detail."
"That's why it's the Barrier Block Conspiracy and not the Barrier Block 'Circus', mate."
"But your plan depends on getting past Shio Corin next week."
"It does. And compared to making sure everything else fell into place, that'll be easy."
"You're calling the World Heavyweight Champion 'easy'?"
"Beast, he's been running from me for months, like a scared little nancy-boy. What would you call him?"
"Sly. Dangerous. As much so as you, even."
"Hardly! That ponce has been hiding behind a succession of has-beens, also-rans, and never-weres. Jack Griffith seemed to be the real deal, but he was too unpredictable, too wild for anyone to control. Got himself locked away in some deep, dark prison, and if his jailers were smart, they've thrown away the key. Testament was a sorry replacement for Griffith. Flexed his muscles and looked menacing, but accomplished sweet fanny adams while he was here! I know Nigel called it a 'suspension', but it was really an act of mercy - if he couldn't even handle Nigel's errand-boy, how would he fare against me? And as for baby-boy Seth in the gimp suit, I'm not too sure what happened there. It's like he lost the will to fight - did he go soft once he was standing side-by-side with big-brother? No matter, Prince Darius put him out of his misery on behalf of the Conspiracy."
Massey stops to light a cigar. The string of insults hangs over the conversation.
"Big-brother's run at the top comes to an abrupt halt next week. In his mind, in some twisted way, I know he views himself as the hero of his own story. Rising above his white-trash upbringing and all that. Well, I'm more than happy to play the villain in his story. Corin versus Massey. The fake tough-guy rapper versus the baddest man from Brixton. It can only end one way - with a trip to South West Nine! Anything else you want to know?"
--=Scene=-- October 25, 2016 Bell Centre Montreal Quebec, Canada
Shio Corin is seen standing with his father outside of Bell Centre in Montreal. As always Shio has his GCW World Heavyweight Title over his shoulder. The two men just staring at the building in front of them.
--=Shio Corin=-- Ya know Pops, It's real weird being in front of this building.
--=Pops Corin=-- Lot's of history here. I don't think the fans realize how much of a hockey fan you are.
--=Shio Corin=-- All good... They aint need to know everything about me. If they did they may find out me an Aaron Black my actually agree on something.
--=Pops Corin=-- Love of the Philadelphia Flyers?
--=Shio Corin=-- Yeah, they the reason I don't know about going in there... Just last night in that building right there. The Flyers went in and lost. Is that my fate? Does that idiot Barton Massey really have my number? What if I go the way the Flyers went?
--=Pops Corin=-- Son... I'm only going to tell you this once. You're going to be just fine. Barton Massey has nothing on you. Wasn't he in the original match that you won your title in the first time? I don't know what he was thinking. He was in prime position to go in to Macabre Massacre as a champion. Now he wants to risk it all to fight you for yours? When you beat him you will then get to send him to Macabre Massacre with no title AND no match.
--=Shio Corin=-- Yeah... I think he was in that triple threat for the first championship. I ain't sweating him if anything this whole thing started because of his fear. He was terrified of going to Massacre and losing to Jensen. So now he's sticking his nose in my business. He figures that after what would have no doubt been a loss he wouldn't have had the chance to cash in. He worked the GCW and now has a chance to steal not only my title but also my main event. That won't happen though. He picked the wrong one.
--=Scene=-- The two of them start walking back to their hotel room. Passing fans along the way wearing all of the latest GCW Merch. As the men walk they continue their conversation.
--=Pops Corin=-- You know what I'm sick of Son? People reciting our past over and over again. Like we get it. We had a rough life and you overcame it all to become GCW champ. How many times do they have to try and cheapen it?
--=Shio Corin=-- I don't know pops... I was jus thinkin the same thing. My origin story has been told a million times. You'd swear Vindication was a re-run. The only origin story told more than mine gotta be Spider-Man. But you right Pops... They do try and cheapen it. Like my past dont make me who I am. They can keep underestimating it if they want... but that would be a mistake.
--=Pops Corin=-- That's even more fuel to the fire though. Now you have extra motivation to win. You just need to go out there and stay focused.
--=Shio Corin=-- I'm always focused.
--=Scene=-- They reach the hotel and go inside. The two check in for their separate rooms and Shio goes up to his dad's room first. Once inside the room his dad reaches in to his bag and pulls out an old book.
--=Pops Corin=-- Sit down son I want to show you something... Do you remember this?
--=Scene=-- His dad opens what is now clearly a year book and turns to a page reveling Shio Corin's yearbook picture
Shio laughs as his dad starts to make his point
--=Pops Corin=-- This was you. Now look at you. Look at where you are and how far you've come. There is no turning back now. You go out there tomorrow and you fight. You fight like you are fighting for your whole life. You fight like you're fighting for your mother and you fight like you are fighting for me. If you do that... I know without even the slightest doubt there is no way you can lose.
--=Shio Corin=-- Thanks for the pep talk pops... but I better get to my room and get some rest. I got a big day tomorrow. I just hope Barton is ready cause I definitely won't go down without a fight. My only thoughts going in are about makin him regret his choice. He should've just held on to his little title and waited.... Well anyway pops... I'm gonna get outta here.
--=Pops Corin=-- I'll see you at the building tomorrow. Rest up.
--=Scene=-- Shio leaves his father's room and heads to the room next door. He goes inside and sits on the edge of the bed. The GCW World Heavyweight title sits on his lap and Shio is just staring at it as if he's getting himself mentally prepared for what is going to unfold the following day... After a little while he places the title on the nightstand and then goes to sleep....
October 26, 2016 Bell Center Montreal, Quebec, Canada
The camera catches up with Shio Corin in the hallway backstage at Vindication. Shio looks to be focused and ready for his match... He is pacing back and forth a bit preparing for the match. Finally he leans against a wall, looks in to the camera, and begins to speak.
--=Shio Corin=-- It's almost time Barton. Time for ya boy to make you feel stupid. Time for me to beat you. Time for me to show you who real and who ain't. A lot of people over the past week talking a lot of shit. You included. Tonight... It's time to shut them all up. People just love talking about how this only my second title defense and i ain't even win the first one. It funny. Why? Cause I may have lost my first title defense but I damn sure managed to win the title right back aint I? People wanna over look the good in favor of the negative. Tonight... It's time to make it stop. You see Barton you unleashed the fire inside of me so I gotta thank you. Not only am I up for this one... now I'm even more ready for Drew... So thanks for the warm up. Thank you for being an idiot and thinking you have a chance. Thank you for deciding to make the worst decision of your life last week. Keep thinking that me losing this title once before somehow gives you a chance. Cause in reality I lost that match to Aaron Black and he is twice the person you are. Stop frontin like you were some type of great champion cause let's face it.... You lost your title once before.... and everyone in attendance tonight knows you cashed in to duck Jensen. Tonight... It is time... Time for me to shut your mouth and keep my place in the Macabre Massacre main event. Tonight...Well you'll see... I'm done talkin.. .It's time to start hurting people.
--=Scene=-- Shio walks off down the hall and in to his dressing room. One last bit of preparation ahead of tonights match. Shio closes his eyes and says a little prayer.
Shio knows this match means everything. Shio knows he must win to shut everyone up. Shio is ready.... Is Barton? The scene fades to black as Shio picks his title up and throws it over his shoulder then turns and heads for the door.
